    2010 Format for Tradition I

    So i wanted to start banter about what kind of format we are going to do for '10.

    My preference would be to pile into 2 twelve team conferences... with a breakdown like this...

    Big 12

    North
    1.
    2.
    3

    South
    1.
    2.
    3.


    SEC

    East
    1.
    2.
    3.

    West
    1.
    2.
    3.


    I think it would be a better setup for these reasons...

    A. You always will have at least a user v user conference championship game in each conference that will be HUGE.
    B. You will have closer rivalries against the 2 teams in your sub-conference
    C. We already play 5 user games a season.. the most you would ever play is 5 user conference games.
    D. Recruiting battles will get even tougher because they will be more localized.
    E. It will give CPU teams in the PAC 10 and Big 10 a chance to compete for quallity prospects outside of the South region we will be dominating.

    Just some thoughts... what you guys think?

    yea.. the thought was get everyone into conferences that are split via sub-conferences. So that we could ensure a user v user conf championship game every year for both conferences...

    it was just a thought... i think the only people tied specifically to their team by fan loyalty are you, me and ramirez. I would be willing to give up playing with A&M for a better setup though.

    Scheduling we be much less complicated in this scenario than it currently is with 3 conferences.

    I like the idea.. I will say that I'm kind of hoping that we avoid having one team in Florida. And we need to make sure that somebody plays as Texas Tech to challenge A&M and Texas for recruits. If we do those two things, that's a great idea.

    I like the idea of the 12 team conference with the two divisons. I like the idea of making the battle for recruits even harder. I'm open to making custom conferences aswell aslong as they are regionaly bound to keep recruiting tough.

    Yeah, keep the custom conferences in mind. We will be running this setup in TTII. Most likely will be a hybrid of BIG XII, SEC and ACC schools to try and localize the recruiting battles.

    If PSU is in the mix you would have to create a custom conference. And level the playing field some how geographicly recruiting wise. Wont work just to add Penn St. while everybody else is beating eachother up in the south.

    thoughts ryno?

    So I'm guessing we won't be doing custom conferences? bummer, I wanted to roll with my favorite team, the Syracuse Orange in NCAA 10.....I really don't like Oklahoma or the Big 12 truth be told....I just wanted to run in this league

    I'm a Big East guy, but of course that eliminates the possibility of conference championships

    I really wish custom conferences would be an option....replace some of the weaker teams in the Big 12 like Vanderbilt, Baylor, Kansas, with Syarcuse or whoever else has an allegiance to a particular team

    we won't be doing custom conferences.. worst case scenario is we stay like we are with Steelah moving to Tech if he wants to.

    The two conference setup would require some to give up teams they love for teams in the conferences we choose.... the only two VIABLE conferences for this setup IMO are Big 12 and SEC.

    Technically you could move the entire big 10 to replace the SEC and have the conference championships.

    Afterall, the name of the conference is just a name. Fosh is on the right track though, it doesn't make sense to just plug a PSU or Syracuse in without being grouped together with something else.

    Rhude I can see where you're coming from but custom conferences would literally ruin the game for me. Is it possible that you could be the Cuse in another tradition dynasty? Wouldn't have to run with Oklahoma again, obviously....

    maybe in the real world it doesn't make sense, but this is a video game...who cares if it doesn't follow what the pursists want

    Dammit, I really wanted my team in NCAA 10

    And Khaalis is Syracuse in TT III, so that's not an option there

    Helli, you know I bleed Orange...you know this man

    Rhude, as you know I have Syrcuse in TTIII, you can have them when 2010 drops. I'm not attached to them whats so ever. Just took them because I knew a little about them.

    I think the three works fine as is. I like the 2-conf. setup too but it has holes... If you think we're unlikely to see a user v. user BCS game now, wait until we did that.... lol

    Fosh... Can't speak for Ryno, but honestly I absolutely would not play in a league with wacky custom conference setups. I love the tradition, rivalries, etc. of college football the way they exist in real life, and there will be enough dynasties out there that I'll be able to find one that doesn't use custom conferences...

    Quiet JMS, you have your favorite team already

    And I really wanted Cuse in this league...bust some teams up like PSU

    If I gotta stay in the Big 12, give me Baylor

    Thats what im talking about play with teams you want but they need to be grouped by region ideal would put all 12 in same region like your first post ryno from texas to florida. But that aint happening. Think about the advantage USC, OSU, PSU, TEX, and OKL have to start out with. Custom conferences may be the only soloution.

    What about something like...

    Big 12 South - 2 user teams
    Big Ten - 2 user teams
    Big East - 2 user teams
    SEC - 2 user teams
    Pac-10 - 2 user teams
    ACC - 2 user teams

    Yeah, I know, we'd dominate the conferences we were set in, but we'd be able to play a lot more OOC user games and still get the seasons done quickly. Also more chance for a BCS user v. user game.
