A few months ago it was announced that the Cincinnati Revolution ended their five year run as a franchise, after enduring their first winless season in 2016. Slightly more surprising is that the Charlotte Express are folding as well, after a 4-10 campaign this past year where they notched upsets over both Austin and Jacksonville. Of […]

The AUDL offseason has already started. You surely didn’t miss defending club and AUDL champions Beau Kittredge and Cassidy Rasmussen signing with the new Dallas Roughnecks franchise. Two of the best players in the game have already found a new home. But there are many others who could end up any number of places. There […]

October 29 was a pretty big day in the world of semi-pro ultimate. Not only did the MLU announce a couple cross divisional games for the 2016 season, the AUDL announced that the Rochester Dragons won’t be returning next year. Cross divisional play is an interesting step for the MLU in 2016. The MLU is […]

I’ve updated the projected standings from last week, and slightly changed the methodology. I’ve taken away the home bonus. This results in greater reliance on point differential, fewer upsets from lower level teams hosting playoff teams, and more evenly split chances in games between similar caliber teams, especially out west. This time I also included […]

I’ve always been a fan of Hollinger’s Playoff Odds for the NBA. They give you an idea of where teams are heading, and separate the contenders from the pretenders. It’s something I’ve always wished existed for the AUDL. It would separate the subjective from the objective. With that in mind, I’ve put together a formula that […]

Here’s a handy way of keeping track of player movement during the offseason. As the offseason progresses I’ll update this post and add some commentary. updated 2/28 East Division Toronto Rush Adding: Bringing Back: Cam Harris, Thomson McKnight, Gord Harrison, Isaiah Masek-Kelly, Jeff Lindquist Subtracting: New York Empire Adding: Bringing Back: Izzy Bryant, Ben Ivers, Lionel […]

updated 12/30 The offseason has seen a flurry of activity for most MLU teams, while others have been oddly quiet. I thought it would be helpful if I put together a post that encapsulated all the moves, and updated it as the offseason progresses. Here’s the first edition, presented with some commentary. It is important […]

Last year, for the first time in nearly a decade, Ring of Fire made the semifinals at Club Nationals. They upset Machine in pool play to earn a trip to the power pools, and took down Johnny Bravo 15-11 once they got there to earn a trip to the quarterfinals. It was the fifth consecutive […]

Once upon a time before Semi Pro Ultimate or I wrote for Skyd, I (poorly) kept a personal blog, where I examined some different ways to incorporate the USAU Formula into determining bids for the Championships, in this case, at the DI and DIII college level. Realizing that changing the math or structure of the […]

With the AUDL and MLU seasons both now over, players and spectators alike have turned  their attention to the club season. With the Triple Crown Tour in full effect this year, high level Club Tournaments started earlier this season. Already the US Open, Terminus, and Colorado Cup have helped shape the stage for the rest […]
