    Whatever gets the US to 18 points as quickly as possible.

    If we need to worry about having to beat Mexico in the last game of the hexagonal, I would argue that we probably don’t deserve to go to the World Cup.

    I’m guessing that the general schedule is already set, but the teams are currently just noted as “A” “B” “C” “D” “E” and “F” (or equivalent) and the draw is just to put actual teams in place of the letters. Am I right (or at least close)?

    I think CONCACAF’s system is about the fairest that there is … e.g., if we used UEFA’s system, CONCACAF’s qualifying semifinal winners would be in (Mexico, USA, and Honduras), while Panama and Costa Rica would be playing a home and home series with the winner taking on New Zealand for a spot in Brazil, while the loser and everyone else would be out.

      Correct about how the draw is set up. This page says how they do it

      I have no idea what is set and what isn’t, but I’d be greatly surprised to see US and Mexico play each other last. CONCACAF wants both of those teams in the WC.

      And I think that CONMEBOL’s system is the fairest. It’s also the most awesome. 10 countries, all make it…..play each country twice….top 5 make it. Beautiful.

    I live the fact that we are attempting to predict the HEX schedule. I think we are all sick! GO RED BULLS!

      Haaha its pointless to think about the actual schedule now! I just wish we could play every game on a snowy evening in front of a packed proUS stadium. Cant wait for the actual schedule.

    Hmm…I didn’t realize the schedule is so backloaded with most games coming later with 5 games in 3 months. It’s going to be a fun run in.

    If the US gets to the last game against Mexico still needing a win, what went wrong against the other teams? I just don’t see that happening if the US and Mexico meet last, it should be a meaningless game played only for bragging rights.
