Default Fixes for all scheduling issues

I went ahead and checked every conference; the Big 10, ACC and SEC were the only conferences that were scheduling incorrectly.

Big Ten Fix:

Open Teams table

In the ID column:
Change Ohio State from 24 to 129
Change Penn State from 27 to 130
Change Illinois from 19 to 131
Change Iowa from 21 to 132
Change Ohio State to 19
Change Penn State to 21
Change Illinois to 24
Change Iowa to 27

In the rivals column
Change Michigan rival from 24 to 19
Change Mich State rival from 27 to 21
Change Northwestern rival from 19 to 24
Change Iowa State rival from 21 to 27

ACC Fix:

Open Teams table in pstats.dat
In the ID column, change the following:

Change Clemson from 3 to 129
Change Florida State from 6 to 130
Change Miami from 11 to 131
Change Pittsburgh from 14 to 132
Change Clemson from 129 to 11
Change Florida State from 130 to 14
Change Miami from 131 to 3
Change Pittsburgh from 132 to 6

In the Rival column:

Change South Carolina's rival to 11
Change Florida's rival to 14
Change Miami's rival to 14
Change West Virginia's rival to 6

There isn't a team that considers Miami a rival so no rival to fix for Miami's changed id

SEC Fix:

Open Teams table

In the ID column:
Change TAMU from 39 to 129
Change Kentucky from 94 to 130
Change TAMU from 129 to 94
Change Kentucky from 130 to 39

In the Rival column:
Change Texas's Rival to 94
Change Louisville's Rival to 39

Well done. Stickied this for future reference. This is one of the reasons I wanted to allow a great deal of schedule flexibility for teams and conferences. In many cases, you guys do a much better job than I do!

I can't do this with the new pstats.dat file. I downloaded the one with the correct team names and now Maryland is 24 and so the numbers are all messed up

Ah, sorry about that.

I just used the default database (I did put in the real names and mascots but I didn't change the ID numbers other than the scheduling fixes). The same logic would apply for any fixes, but there is no guarantee that the same teams are messed up. It's possible that in your database the scheduling is fine. You would have to create a league and check some conference schedules to see.

I decided to just upload my db on google drive (hopefully this is okay with Arlie).

This is just the default db with real names/mascots and the scheduling fixes I detailed above, so if you have a database with customization you will lose it.

Be sure to make a back-up copy of your current pstats.dat, download this and put in correct directory in BBCF and rename it to pstats.dat. You will need to start a new league to get the changes; keep in mind that if you have the Steam version and validate your files, it will overwrite this:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwB...ew?usp=sharing

Use at your own risk, etc. Arlie, if this isn't cool with you, let me know and I will stop sharing the link.

Just an FYI, this db is fairly old and doesn't reflect the team alignments for 2018.
