After the Chivas game this weekend, we'll be roughly 1/3 through the season. Time flies when you're having fun.
So I thought I'd do a quick view of the calendar to see how it ebb's and flow's through the season.
This is just a quick chart breaking the season into third's (11, 12, 12) and within each third analyzing the % of home games as well as caliber of the opponent (based on their average conference placement as of 5/9... i.e low numbers are higher current placements/better teams).
|Summary||% at home||Home Avg||Away Avg|
So... the next third of the season is fairly road heavy (7 of 12) against fairly high quality opponents. That's the bad news.
The good news is the last third of the season is home based (7 of 12) against arguably the weakest part of the schedule.
So... if we can stay in the hunt through the middle third we seem to have a good shot.
Of course this will all change if teams charge up the chart ne Seattle...
