    Thnaks for starting this thread T2, i was going to soon anyways. One thing i think needs to be addressed is the freeze rule. There really is no sure-fire way to fix this, so i would really appreciate your opinions. Another thing i would like to speak on right now is schedules. I am going to keep the same format as we have this season, with each team facing some tough CPU competition. However, some user home n home series such as MICH-BAMA and MISS-IOWA are now done, so there will be new user vs user home n home series starting in 2011. DO NOT REQUEST ANY YET, i'm not sure how i will work it yet but i wil let you know. I will probably do it randomly.


    P.S. T2 You will get the Vols on opening week like you requested. If there are any CPU teams in particular that you guys would like to play next year IN ADDITION TO the tough CPU game i will assign you just let me know the team.

    I mean 'restart rule'. The fact thay you are not allowed to start a game again no matter the circumstances.

    Sorry T2 but i just realized Vandy and UT are both in the SEC so therefore i have no power over when you play them since they are on your conference slate. My bad lol, idk what i was thinking yesterday

    yeah i wouldn't mind that. I'm trying to make it where you won the nc last year with my fav team and this year i'd win it with yours. Kind of a cool story line going forward

    We will stick with the current scheduling format of 4 user vs. user games and 1 against a top CPU team for next season. One thing I will personally implement each week is a thread on the Heisman Race, Saturday Heroes has one and I think we should too.

    Here are the Home n Home series for 2011. Some of these match-ups are the 2nd of 2 while others are the 1st. These are all set as long as the schedule configuration allows, but these are most likely the games.

    Vanderbilt(T2EXPRESS) vs. Florida State(TRudeThaDude)

    Ohio State(JFunk34) vs. Miami(JCA312)

    Notre Dame(Noknee) vs. Alabama(smace767)

    Ole Miss(jjlloyd) vs. Penn State(DirtyD12)

    Michigan(hoodlum10) vs. Clemson(DrunkenSoldier88)

    LSU(shadowofanubiss66) vs. Georgia Tech(G-Unit5281)

    I had some ideas that i hooked up.
    I took the file and created an offline dynasty to test a schedule i had written down. I know some of yall dont like the ideas but thats ya business. I'm just puttin some shit out there.

    This schedule would kill all that who is the best conf because it would play out on the field. Not much work, set it up twice to see if it comes out the same which it did. each conf plays the other conf in 4 games. There are 4 sec vs big ten, 4 sec vs acc and 4 acc vs big ten games.

    Here are my recommendations for the schedule. The hoodlum10 matchups are the same i just added one more out of conf user game to that.

    If you add these games for these weeks they work every time. only listing out of conf games because the conf games are the same and dont change.
    #7 Bama
    Wk 1= @ #17 colorado
    wk 2= vs #2 Notre Dame
    wk 7= vs purdue
    wk 14 =@ #6 MIA

    Clemson
    wk 1=#16 Iowa
    wk 2= @ maryland
    wk 3= @ #9 ole miss
    wk 14= #12 mich

    #24 FSU
    wk 4 = okl
    wk 12 = vandy
    wk 13 = @ #25 FLA
    wk 14 = @ #5 penn state

    #3 GTech
    wk 4 = @ #2 Notre Dame
    wk 6= utah
    wk 13= @ oklahoma
    wk 14= #4 LSU

    #4 LSU
    wk 2= #8 Ohio st
    wk 3= @ #19 USC(would switch to #21 oreg st)
    wk 4= #15 Texas AM
    wk 14= @ #3 GTech

    #6 MIA
    wk 2= @ #14 CAL
    wk 4= #8 ohio st
    wk 12= @ Hawaii
    wk 14= #7 Bama

    #12 Mich
    wk 2= Purdue(not in big ten anymore)
    wk 3= #1 Nebraska
    wk 4= @ vandy
    wk 14= @ Clemson Yes its after the osu game, i think i could get it in before, i didnt check.

    #2 Notre Dame
    wk 1= #11 Texas
    wk 2= @ #7 Bama
    wk 3= @ #21 Oreg St(would switch with #19 USC)
    wk 4= #3 Gtech

    #8 Ohio St
    wk 1= #15 Texas am
    wk 2=@ #4 LSU
    wk3= Okla St
    wk 4= @ #6 MIA

    #9 Ole Miss
    wk 1= @#23 Boise ST (blue turf)
    wk 2= @ #5 Penn St
    wk 3= clemson
    wk 5= pitt

    #5 Penn St
    wk 1=@ houston
    wk 2= # 9 Ole Miss
    wk 3= #23 boise st
    wk 14= #24 FSU

    Vandy
    wk 1= #22 oregon
    wk 2= @ Uconn (RIP Jasper Howard)
    wk 4= #12 Mich
    wk 12= @ FSU

    schedules look hard, but thats because there are 8 user teams in the top 10 and 10 preseason ranked user teams. Vandy and clemson should be ranked by 3.

    I did this twice so it will work out. If guys want the challenge there it is.
    Note: i did not look at the dynasty in any other area. I know some guys do. I dont, I advaned the dynasty straight to custom schedule and played with it. It worked out real easy.

    If we use Smace's idea and it would be ok with Shadow I'd like to trade my week 3 Oregon State game for his week 3 USC game. I like playing rivalry games and they are essentially ranked the same (21 vs 19).

    have u seen mine. wk 1 @#17 Col, wk 2 #2 Notre Dame, wk 3 @ #25 FLA, wk 4 #20 GA. then add wk 10# 4 LSU, and end the season vs wk 13 vandy and wk 14 @ #6 MIA.
    I will play the preseason #2, #4, #6, #17(on the road at altitude), #20 conf rival, #25 toughest lace to play the game cheats for them gators, and vandy will get ranked and @ Tenn who might get ranked and they had a good recruiting class for a cpu team.

    Look at it this way, After the first 4 weeks u can relax until.
    here is the rest of ur schedule.
    wk 5 = minn
    wk 6= @#16 Iowa
    wk 7= @ Illi
    wk 8= #12 Mich
    wk 9= @ norwtrn
    wk 10 bye
    wk 11= #8 Ohio St
    wk 12= @Mich St
    wk 13= Ind
