Let’s test the portability of the “virtual conference” API. I added a canned dictionary of Texas teams to the python executable. Inside the API code I also added the final tiebreaker, total margin. As identified last week this was technically in the rules but never came up in the California runs so far. This code… Continue reading They play football in Texas too
Current 2021 results and standings: San José State 7 at USC 30 on Sep 04, 2021 Stanford 42 at USC 28 on Sep 11, 2021 Fresno State 40 at UCLA 37 on Sep 18, 2021 UCLA 35 at Stanford 24 on Sep 25, 2021 San Diego State at San José State on Oct 15, 2021… Continue reading Is this the year for SDSU?
I implemented the fix I mentioned in the last results post and instead of having to chop up the code to get a nice run for this year it now does it automatically. Latest verbose run for 2021: San José State 7 at USC 30 on Sep 04, 2021 Stanford 42 at USC 28 on… Continue reading new output for a year in progress
As noted here, Fresno State is tough. They beat UCLA in a wild one on Saturday. You can get your Pac-12 doom and gloom elsewhere. (We like Jon Wilner and Stewart Mandel.) Let the world gnash its teeth. For the Mythical California Cup it was just one more hard fought day of cup play. It’s… Continue reading UCLA loss and Pac-12 chaos
When I started researching this I vaguely thought that the recent past would be mostly the usual Pac-8/10/12 suspects plus the Cal State schools that play now. I thought the really crazy years would be the 1940s when Naval Officer schools in California port cities were playing major college football. (And they will be, I… Continue reading The 1970s cal state football explosion
Doing a project as pointless as this lets me really examine some of the pitfalls of how software projects get hung up. Let’s take a look at a verbose run for 2007 under the current codebase: UCLA 45 at Stanford 17 on Sep 01, 2007 Sacramento State 3 at Fresno State 24 on Sep 02,… Continue reading FCS shouldn’t count?
After yesterday’s action we can all take comfort in the MCC, where some California team will definitely win something. Actually, UCLA might be good. But Stanford and Cal both lost brutal games and USC didn’t inspire any confidence. Fresno State has an outside shot to run the table in the cup games based on how… Continue reading Week 1 results
I added support for games that end in a tie with this commit. With my recency bias I had left that out and marked it “hard” in my head but it doesn’t seem like it takes much. It changes a couple of 1970s results. I had credited San Diego State with one too many titles.… Continue reading Ties
College football season is here. What’s on the calendar for its most prestigious corner, the Mythical California Cup? Fortunately CollegeFootballData API includes scheduled future games, so with slight modification to our results finder to gracefully handle outcomes in the future we can print it out. Here’s the run for 2021: San José State at USC… Continue reading 2021 schedule
Let’s see some results. I refactored everything into functions and squashed some of the noise so let’s see a run. Next up is I need to find a good css module that allows for clickable sorting tables but for now here’s a dump. I left in some of the tie-breaker text cruft so I can… Continue reading Results
