PTS is not NCPA, so that would be the reason the Nov 4th event won't be an MSCC event.

But is there a reason we cant have teams play it and pull their rankings from the overall and re-rank them? Or talk to pevs to allow for ncpa play

That isn't how the NCPA works. It would be possible to have an NCPA event held in conjunction with another league's event. The SEC Class A conference has held events with the CFOA (won't do that again).
Things are different with class AA and it takes a whole day on one field to run an NCPA AA event.
Sidenote... This Conference has a method to organizing their events. Top 4 from last year get a chance to host. In NCPA, you have to earn the pleasure to host. Also, Northern VA is pretty far for most of the teams that compete in the MSCC, Liberty is even far for a lot of the teams...

That's why we don't even try to attend every event. Even if we won a host bid, no one would travel to northern ky for an event

In effect, your school playing an event that is not NCPA sanctioned means that a) you're playing against teams that aren't college teams and b) you can roster anyone on your team, including people who don't go to your school.

The point of NCPA is for intercollegiate competition. You go to a school, play for your school, against other schools. This is why the PEV's scores aren't compatible with MSCC scores.

I say that we keep the layout unknown and then choose a layout less than a week before the event. That way we are all on the same level with how the field is set up and no one has an unfair home-field advantage... **cough.. Liberty.. *cough.. I know we can all set up our own versions of the field at our home fields, but even with the same layout, the actual field can turn out pretty different. This allows the home team to have weeks to prepare on the layout, to the point that they could play it with their eyes closed...

As fair as this would be, I doubt it would happen because nobody else does it. But it might be worth a shot... Pyro think about this.

As for Nov 10th, Clemson might have 2 lines there again and we are lookin forward to it. Hope to have great weather.

You're pulling the home field advantage card on liberty? Classy. They outplayed everyone because they are an excellent team with lots of heart. Not because they had any sort of advantage.

And... They didn't even win. One line got 3rd and the other line didn't even make it to finals...

If you want to talk home field advantage, the teams you should be pointing your finger at are; KSU, GSU, and GT. Also, the cup layout is up at nitro until the week before the tournament. A bunch of the KSU guys are playing cup so they won't get to see the layout up until the last minute. Most of the GSU team can't run to knee injuries and the break lanes are likely to be huge, so I wouldn't really say we have any particular advantage.

As a side-note, if you really want to talk about people having an advantage, try playing without your right arm.

With Mario sending teams to Cup, I'd imagine the Cup layout will remain set up at the field for a while, like Nubby said.

So playing on a field for weeks isn't an advantage? I didn't question their talent or passion, for they have ample of both.
In a game of details, I am just offering a possible option to a fixable situation. Having the home-field already has so many possible advantages... Not having to drive, staying at your own place, etc. It's an advantage that they have their own fields and clubhouse, but I would never try to change that because they have put in the time and money to deserve them. If you could make it so that every school had the same setup, then who wouldn't want that?
The layout is just such an easy thing to change, so why would it be such a hassle?

There's a reason it is called home-field "advantage" and not home-field "doesn't really have an effect." Name one sport in which home-field advantage doesn't apply....

One of the best back players I've ever had the privilege of playing with had a prosthetic leg, and he never used it as an excuse. You get the same respect, but it still has no relevance to home-field advantage..

So does this mean that the layout will be Cup's?
