    I'd like to start a single elimination tournament for our group that we will start on 7/13 (since I'm out of town until then), with the following rules:
    • @gowazzucougs and I will seed all 12 members, with the top 4 seeds having a round 1 bye (if I have the seeding right in my head)
    • Games will be played over a 24-48 hour period, so we can be done by the end of the weekend after game release hopefully
    • Games will be played on AA difficulty, with 7 minute quarters
    • Players can pick any team they like (open for discussion), even if two people use the same team
    The winner will get an award of their choosing for season 1:
    • An additional 2 recruits signed over the 70 player limit, with the ability to then cut any two players off the roster in the offseason, or....
    • The ability to attempt to sway any one player attempting to leave early for the pro's who would not normally be eligible to be swayed.
    Who's interested?

    I'll be in, but I do have two questions:

    1). Are you seeding a straight 1-12, or will you be dividing the bracket in half (say, top half has the Big Ten users and the bottom has the Pac 10 users)?
    2). Are the prizes only for one season, or will they run throughout the length of the dynasty?

    Apparently knowing how to read is not a requirement to get into Cal :p

    (yes, I'm turning this into another Stanford vs. Cal topic haha)

    That's an interesting idea, but I think it will be straight 1-12.

    Apparently knowing how to read isn't only an issue for the guys at Cal, it's an epidemic for the entire northern California region!

    OK, just let us know when you are set up, if we need to give you an extra day it shouldn't be a problem.

    I am in, and I know who I am taking. I probably should pick a little better team, but I owe this school something.

    You think I would take Georgia Tech, come on, I run an offense that is the complete opposite to the run they run. As for Oregon State I owe them and will probably take them.

    If any of you know which team you want to use, feel free to post it. I'll be working on the seedings over the next few days.

    is there a deadline for when I have to choose my team by? I am going to want to look at rosters first if possible.

    No rush at all, I probably won't pick a team until the teambuilder site is up next week.

    we have to stick with one team for the entire tourney or can we switch it up from game to game?

    I'd like everyone to pick one team and stick with it for the tourney. That way I think everyone picks a team that best fits your playstyle preference and we can get a really good, competitive little tourney.

    I'm going with Texas A&M. I want to use them kinda for the reason wazzu wants OSU. Plus they look much better in 12 then they do in 11, both with the lighting effect on their unis and in team ratings.
