Big Ten Schedule Analysis v2

(originally posted at http://compu-picks.com/General_Interest/B1G_Schedule_v2.html)

So less than 24 hours after I released the post about how the Big Ten might organize their schedules, they announced how they would actually structure things. I was right on about the "all West, then all East" format, but they came up with an interesting variation when they decided that they'd use "parity" scheduling, where they'd match up the more successful programs against each other more often.

So what could that sort of schedule rotation look like? Let's take a look. As with the original example, there will be some principles that will guide these patterns:

The six intra-division games are assumed to be 3 home, 3 away.

Every team plays every other team at least every four years.

All East teams have the extra home game in even years, and all West teams have the extra home game in odd years.
At this point the second and third of these has been confirmed (or maybe the order was flipped, if so just reverse all the "@" and "vs" markers), while the first really is a basic and necessary assumption.

Long stretches of one team missing not playing home or away against a specific opponent were avoided to the extent possible.
With the exceptions of Indiana and Purdue, as those two just need to be juggled sometimes. Still, the fundamental designs of the structures were set to try and avoid issues on this front to the extent possible.

More after the jump



Now let's move on to the first pattern. This pattern is actually a bit different from what the Big Ten announced. They'd specifically said that Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State would be matched up with Nebraska, Wisconsin and Iowa, but we'll start out with a somewhat simpler structure (which is, for the record, really functional).

It will work according to the following rules:

Rotations are set on a six year basis

Purdue and Indiana will play all inter-division opponents on a two games per six year basis

The top two teams from the East will play the top two teams from the West four times in six years, as will the middle two teams in each division, as will the bottom two teams (with Purdue and Indiana pulled from this calculation)

Every team (except Indiana and Purdue) will play two of their three non-division games in a fixed rotation:
@X, vs A;
vs Y, @ B;
@Z, vs C;
vs X, @ A;
@ Y, vs B;
vs Z, @ C
This rotation will cover the other six teams from the opposite division (except Indiana or Purdue), and the rotation will not change from six-year cycle to six-year cycle. The last non-division game will then be against either Indiana/Purdue or the opposing pair.

This rule helps keep things on a regular basis; Michigan will play Minnesota at least every three years, on an alternating home and away basis. And extra games will simply be on top of this rotation.

Purdue and Indiana are exempted from any of the parity-based scheduling shifts; they will play everyone in the other division one-third of the time. Along the same lines, inside every rotation period, no team plays any other team less than one-third of the time.
These rules help keep the structures simple; without them, things get a lot messier. You CAN construct a schedule dropping teams to a one-fourth frequency, but given the rule of "play each other every four years" that means that you need to force teams into fixed rotations, and that doesn't work for every type of alignment.
Similarly, you CAN mess with the frequency that Purdue and Indiana play other teams, but it also gets messy, since they start out at a different frequency than other teams. To be blunt, it just doesn't seem like it's worthwile to go down that path.

In the first six years, let's assume the pairs are as follows:
Michigan and Ohio State match up with Nebraska and Wisconsin
Michigan State and Penn State match up with Iowa and Northwestern
Maryland and Rutgers match up with Illinois and Minnesota.

In the next six years, let's assume the pairs are basically the same, except that Iowa and Wisconsin flip places, leaving us with:
Michigan and Ohio State match up with Nebraska and Iowa
Michigan State and Penn State match up with Wisconsin and Northwestern
Maryland and Rutgers match up with Illinois and Minnesota.

Now, in the final six years, let's assume some further changes:
Michigan and Ohio State match up with Nebraska and Wisconsin
Michigan State and Maryland match up with Iowa and Illinois
Maryland and Rutgers match up with Northwestern and Minnesota.

Even with all of that movement, the structural integrity of the rotation remains essentially intact. Everyone plays everyone else in a fixed 3 year back and forth rotation that doesn't get shifted, even with a lot of movement in the pairings.

Some of the games involving Indiana and Purdue may move, but that's it. Michigan plays at Northwestern and home against Iowa in year one, flips it in year four, flips back in year seven, and this continues indefinitely. Ditto Ohio State playing at Nebraska and home against Minnesota in year one, or Michigan State playing at Wisconsin and home against Illinois in year one. Those games are fixed, leaving only inter-division "pair" games and Indiana/Purdue games to potentially move around. It's a pretty elegant and functional way to organize the rotations. It also ensures that over the long haul, no head to head matchup is at one site more than another, since home/away splits are balanced in every six-year rotation.

The only real downside is that you can see back to back home games, but that's inevitable in any draw like this (though since the fixed rotation reverses every three years, it's impossible to have three straight games at either campus site). For instance, Michigan State plays Northwestern in years 1, 3, 4 and 6. They're home against Northwestern in year 3. So if years 1 and 4 are opposite, the Spartans will either get consecutive home games in years 1 and 3 or years 3 and 4. This can be "fixed", but only at the cost of breaking the fixed 3-year rotation, which net-net seems like a bad idea. It's possible some would object to this oddity, but I personally don't think it's much of a big deal.

Now on to Pattern 2.

This more closely hews to what Jim Delaney actually said, using his example of Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State playing more games against Nebraska, Wisconsin and Iowa. Here, we'll use an eighteen year rotation. I put together a design that's structurally similar to the pairwise six-year rotations, accomodating equal matchup frequency against three teams by putting three pair rotations back to back to back. For example, in the first six year period Michigan gets four games against Iowa and Wisconsin (everyone else is two games), in the next six year period they get four games against Iowa and Nebraska, and in the final six year period they get four games against Nebraska and Wisconsin.

As with pattern 1, you do get a downside of back to back home games (in fact, in the Michigan example it happens quite a bit). To a certain extent, the schedule structure can be tweaked to avoid this. If there's interest I can show some example of how this could potentially be done, though keep in mind that some other things might get a bit messy as a consequence. There's also the negative in this instance that the "every team plays everyone everyone every four years" principle was relaxed a bit for Indiana and Purdue (it became five years in a couple instances). That's not exactly ideal, but like the home/road splits it can be tweaked to at least some degree if there's interest in seeing some examples.

Incidentally, my personal thoughts are that the Big Ten would be far better served with a relatively shorter term rotation like pattern 1 (which goes back into flex every six years) than an eighteen year rotation that locks in pattern frequencies for a very long time (which is the strong implication of this article). If say Illinois suddenly becomes a regular contender in the West starting five years from now, then they will have a long-term scheduling advantage that won't go away for over a decade. That's potentially a really big problem if the intent is to encourage competitive balance and high-profile matchups.
