RE: 2016-2017 Bubas Cup - Completed Sports
Well it just makes sense. By conference record, UTA in volleyball was the fourth best team overall, but third in the West, which was decidedly tougher. The old system would have a team with a sub .500 conference record earning more points.

It would work in reverse for baseball too. UTA is preseason second in the West, but probably would have been 4th or 5th in the East. It is just a more fairer system, and prolly the best thing if we have divisional play with imbalanced games.

"SCORING: Points for the Bubas Cup are awarded based on regular season finish for sports that have a regular season conference schedule. Points are awarded based on Sun Belt Championship finish if that sport does not have a regular season conference schedule.

Points are awarded based on the number of schools sponsoring the sport. Institutions not sponsoring a sport do not receive points in that sport. Institutions tying for positions split the combined points of their positions.

For sports that have both a regular season schedule and a conference tournament, one additional point will be awarded to the winner of the conference tournament.

For sports with divisions, the conference records of all teams are ranked and points are awarded regardless of divisional finish."

Here's the point total after the indoor track and field championships:

1. Appalachian State (52.5)
2. Arkansas State (51)
3. South Alabama (50.5)
4. Texas State (46.5)
T5. Coastal Carolina (46)
Texas-Arlington (46)
7. Louisiana (39.5)
8. Georgia Southern (31)
9. Georgia State (29.5)
10. Little Rock (27)
11. Troy (25)
12. ULM (21)

Basketball finishes next Saturday, March 4, then the conference tournament will add another point to the tournament winner. Golf and tennis are in April.

I got an email from an SB staffer. It seems they had a meeting and decided to change the points awarded due to confusion over volleyball and what would be other divisional sports.

"we changed a couple of things following discussion with Athletic Directors, them then proposing some new rules, and it passing unanimously."

This is easier and how I was doing it during the season. There are good points about either process. The fact no one voted against the change means I am not going to figure it is a big deal either way (though it cost App 1/2 point.)

Amazing. I've only been trying to get them to do this very thing for the past 3 years. I wonder what made them decide to do this now, after the athletic season has begun.

I thought it strange to change mid-year also, but it was an unanimous vote so it would be hard for any school to cry foul, though some were helped and some were hurt by the decision.

I do appreciate the fact that a SB staff member would take the time to reach out to a fan and interact. I do think that speaks well of the conference employees at least.

TXST next big numbers should be outdoor T&F. Nice move on TXSTs part the past couple of weeks. Proud of the BB teams.

Troy's sweep of the basketball tournaments garners them 2 points and jumps them over Little Rock.

I expect UTA's track teams - men going for the triple crown - and tennis teams to keep them near the top. The golf team is looking good early on as well. We don't sponsor women's golf this year (but will next), so that will hurt. Hard to tell where out diamond sports stand and I feel like this will be 2014 all over again where we had a Bubas lead until those two were decided.

We don't have Men's Tennis and our Women's tennis isn't very good I don't think.
Tennis will probably hurt us and we may drop out of 1st.
