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?
After looking through dozens of wikipedia season summaries one trend that jumps out is lots of early home games for teams like Michigan. 2016 is an extreme example: They didn’t play a road game until week 6. This year they just played their first road game in week 5. Why? And is it just Michigan?… Continue reading Extra home games for some college teams
Very excited to learn about the Beehive Boot, a physical trophy awarded for “instate football supremacy among Division I FBS universities from the state of Utah.” There are only three such teams so it’s nowhere near as exciting as our Mythical California Cup. But it does have a boot. (BYU has wrapped it up this… Continue reading Utah has a boot
I paused the original records at 1968 because that’s when the Pac-8 era started and I was seeing some weirdness with FCS membership. I thought it would get weirder going older than that. But now I fixed the FCS check so let’s continue going into the past. Letdown spoiler: it’s not weird at all. Here’s… Continue reading Filling in the 1960s
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
Timezone bugs and libraries are always hilarious fun so let’s take a look at what I did and what I should still do before I forget it. The diff in question. The timestamps in the database are in UTC time. So it should be a simple enough matter to parse them as UTC and then… Continue reading anatomy of a timezone fix
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
I’m referring to timezone bugs, of course. Looking at the verbose run for the 2021 schedule I see what I didn’t before about today’s one MCC game: San José State 7 at USC 30 on Sep 04, 2021 Stanford 42 at USC 28 on Sep 12, 2021 Fresno State at UCLA on Sep 19, 2021… Continue reading A familiar foe
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?
