    And we're off...

    It's finally here gentlemen, Chompions League '14. Here are some guidelines that you must understand and adhere to as you begin your journey at your respective program. Before we get into that, however, a big shout out to jandy for staying up with me until 7:00 AM last night finalizing rosters, editing coaches and ensuring that we could start this file today.

    The file name is Chompions. Password is tso

    Creating a Coach
    - When you boot up dynasty, make sure you select create a new coach. Customize him to your liking. After you create your coach you'll be prompted to assign 1 talent point for your HC/OC/DC. Make sure you choose these wisely. Though you will definitely earn more talent points throughout dynasty you can never rearrange your talent points

    - After you assign your talent points, the first thing I need you to do is go ever to coach central and be sure that goals are shown in the coach xp goals menu. If there is a blank screen, there is something wrong with the dynasty file. This has happened to one OD on the sight and they had to restart. If it happens to us I'd rather restart during the preseason than in week 1. It's not a recurring bug, it will either happen or not happen in the preseason.

    - We had talked about a 3:1 required ratio for the head coaching tree. Jandy and I decided against this. Feel free to spend your head coaching talents as you wish. The 2:1 head coach:assistant coach ratio is still in effect.

    Redshirts

    - Jandy and I thought it was important to create some guidelines for redshirts so that users can't simply stockpile their talent by redshirting players who would never redshirt in real life. A SIM experience extends past the playing field.

    - Only freshmen can be redshirted, no other classes. After year 1 you are welcome to redshirt jucos and transfers in addition to freshmen.

    - The following rules don't apply to offensive linemen b/c offensive linemen generally redshirt regardless of skill and rank. The only thing to consider with offensive linemen is that you must have 8 linemen not redshirting.

    - You can only redshirt 1/3 of your freshmen that are rated 78 overall or better (not including your offensive linemen). So if you have 12 freshmen 78 or better and 3 of those are linemen, you can redshirt 3 of these players. College football almost never redshirt more than a third of their class.

    Ready to Advance

    - When you are RTA, post on here and set your console RTA as well. Good luck!

    MOST IMPORTANTLY: NEVER SAVE THE DYNASTY FILE. ONLY THE COMISH DOES. IF YOU SAVE IT, THE DYNASTY FILE WILL CORRUPT AND WE WILL LOSE PROGRESS. DONT BE A DICK. DONT BE THAT GUY

    I've talked to everyone. Glen Cieske has a tight schedule today so if he can get his done we will be in season 1 tonight, if not tomorrow for sure

    This is encouraging, considering we are first year head coaches with no HC experience the top recruits should be hesitant to go one of our schools.

    It's unfortunate that this was such an elongated process today, but that can be expected with the first preseason of an OD because we're still getting into the swing of things. Just waiting on macc24usc -- deadline is up tomorrow morning

    Sorry guys I worked all weekend, closed last night and Saturday evening a friend of a friend was involved in a drunk driving accident that required me to provide to support one of my friends... no excuse just explaininng what happened to me this weekend. I got home about 10:30pm and was just absolutely exhausted and my body needed to shut down. I set an alarm to get up as soon as possible this morning. Talking with Spayer now I am waiting on conformation if we`re rolling with this file he said there may have been an issue.

    Looking forward to getting bakc into the swing of things with you guys

    Honestly bud, we all understand. Life happens. Thanks for the explanation, and we don't want all this pressure on the community, especially since this was a start ahead of schedule and you were still within 24 hours. Hope all is well.

    Guys I unfortunately had to delete the file and restart a new one. I had set it that everyone needed to create a coach when entering the file. I didn't consider that we might have to relaunch the file periodically, something we did 10 times last year. When we relaunch everyone would have to create a new coach again and start off at level one. I didn't want this as coach skills would be rendered pointless.

    Please join the new dynasty file. Name is Chompions password is tso. This is a setback but please trust me it was something we needed to do. Please do your preseason today and we will finally start this season ASAP. Once again I'm very sorry this had to happen but it was the best course of action. Same redshirt rules apply and follow the instructions from the first post or text me with any questions

    And you're still supposed to create your coach. Leaving the ability to join as existing on was a precaution for the future if we need to relaunch the file. That way you can join at the level you acheived
