    Gentlemen,

    I'm ecstatic to say that we have 12 members signed up for Chompions League '14. This group contains a number of core members from last year's very successful run as well as some new faces. Though NCAA 14 is still a month away, I can't think of a better way to spend the next month of anticipation than by hyping up the league. The best way to do that is by creating content, such as team previews, for your preferred team.

    As stated in the sign up thread, this year we will be selecting teams through a draft. There were two tiers in randomizing this draft order: the first tier is made up of the 3 league commissioners; the other tier was made up of the remaining members. The draft order is posted below. When you are on the clock, feel free to take your time, but please be diligent as well so that we can move through the team selection phase as quickly as possible.

    1. jandy - Oregon
    2. LongGONE24 - Georgia
    3. Spayer419 - Ohio State
    4. cmassey13 - Arkansas
    5. cyhiphopp - Texas A&M
    6. TheMNorthFace - USC
    7. Jbek - Penn State
    8. Glen Cieske - Wisconsin
    9. Boraby - Stanford
    10. CJTHA1 - UCLA
    11. MrWitness36 - LSU
    12. ssuwr86 - Minnesota
    Before you start pondering the team you will be using this year, read the Coach Skills Playbook at http://www.easports.com/ncaa-football/news/article/ncaa-football-14-coach-skills.
    As you saw in the link, Coach Skills will be providing more depth to Dynasty Mode this year. At the same time, some real life coaches will be much better than others and more advantageous to use. Jandy and I talked about it, and we believe the league will work best if every coach starts off on an even playing field. To ensure that nobody has a coaching advantage from the start, everyone will be creating a new coach and will have the same amount of skills points to initially allocate (somewhere between 10 and 20, which will require testing before CL officially kicks off). As you may remember from last year, if coaching carousel is turned off, Coach Prestige never changed. If everyone were to create their own coach at the beginning of CL, all would be stuck at D- prestige throughout the life of the dynasty. We do not want to use coaching carousel because there is also the possibility of people getting fired. Taking this into consideration, I will create everyone as the coach of their selected school in our roster file of choice, and all will be rated with the same Coach Prestige. This will likely be very high because of the schools that are projected to be chosen.

    As stated in the sign up thread, we will be using the SEC, Big Ten, and Pac 12. We want to give you some flexibility, so we are allowing there to be up to 3 teams in the same division. For instance, if two teams from the SEC West have been selected, a user can still select a third team in the division. But once 3 teams are taken from the SEC West, the only remaining SEC team available will reside in the East. Once four teams have been taken in a given conference, that conference is closed. In Season 2, we will utilize custom conferences to reflect the real life changes to the Big Ten, in addition to moving around teams in a division with 3 to bring user balance to the conference. Below are the 3 conferences and their divisions as they will be in 2014. This is the alignment to consider when choosing a team.

    Big Ten:
    East - Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State (Spayer419), Penn State (Jbek) and Rutgers.
    West - Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota (ssuwr86), Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue and Wisconsin (Glen Cieske).

    SEC:
    East - Georgia (LongGONE24), Florida, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky
    West - Alabama, LSU (MrWitness36), Texas A&M (cyhiphopp), Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Arkansas (cmassey13), Auburn

    Pac 12:
    North - Oregon (Jandy), Stanford (Boraby), Oregon State, Washington, California, Washington State
    South - UCLA (CJTHA1), USC (TheMNorthFace), Arizona State, Arizona, Utah, Colorado

    In conclusion, I apologize for the very lengthy post, but I want to make sure everyone is one the same page. Jandy, you are now on the clock with the first pick in the Chompions League '14 Team Draft!

    LongGone can't get to a computer for a while, so he's asked me to inform you all of his pick. LongGone will play with the Georgia Bulldogs in CL '14​

    I really like the idea of creating coaches with a set prestige. It really sucks having that stuck for the whole dynasty. Will we get any more skill points as the dynasty goes on if we don't have the Carousel on?

    Damn SEC is looking pretty damn solid so far with 3 spots filled.

    Yes, you will still get to level your coach up (not exactly sure how this works) and as you level up you get more skill points. We will just be starting all at the same prestige and with the same amount of initial points. The alternative to this would be someone like Urban Meyer having 50 some points for bonuses in his tree while Oregons coach would have much less. That wouldn't be fair because I wouldn't have earned those very important bonuses. The variances in how fast people level up will differentiate the coaches, which is great because prestige won't do that.

    Northy is on the clock

    I am pumped to give it a go in the SEC this year. Even games against the CPU are going to be very tough.
