Guys, please do not derail this thread too much. If you want to keep this up, do it somewhere else and not here.

I guess the state board isn't allowing them the freedom to make the schedule the way that works the best for their event supervisors, and they have to make a lot of room changes and re-reserve a lot of things that shouldn't have had to.
Is this because they want to keep the schedule consistent across National, State and Regional? Or is it because of another reason?

Looking at it, it does not follow the national schedule and regionals either has 5 blocks or they adapt to what the state schedule is, so probably another reason would be my guess. I wonder if IU had the same problems.

In the times I’ve competed and volunteered, the state schedule in Indiana has never followed the nats schedule (particularly remember this from the 2016 season when I was able to do both cell biology and forensics at state and we (against the odds, in our opinion) made it out and found out they conflicted at nationals so I couldn’t do both - wasn’t the happiest about that and it dealt quite a blow in our nats performance but oh well). Even regionals don’t necessarily follow the state schedule - both times when I competed at Butler regionals the schedule was definitely different from the state schedule since there were events I could and couldn’t do between the tournaments.

I heard that they were going to try to keep the schedule consistent across regional sites but I don't think that has anything to do with the state schedule at Purdue. Indiana never follows nats schedule as pikachu4919 mentioned. I know at least at Butler regionals, the schedule is not fair for teams as every team does not have the same event conflicts. Thus, hopefully all the regional sites adopt to using the state schedule. I'm honestly not sure why Indiana does not follow the nats schedule.

Butler is notoriously bad for their schedule.

We wanted to follow the nationals schedule, but the state board voted against it. Mainly, because the national schedule wasn't released, and they wanted to get moving on an invitational/regional schedule.
The nats schedule is released with the rules, so it’s not like releasing the state schedule any earlier than that gives THAT much of an edge to tournament prep progress. Especially since building a state schedule based on the nats schedule conflicts shouldn’t be THAT hard compared to blindly building a schedule from scratch.
