    Format Change

    Alright guys we are going to go to a new format:

    We will be expanding to three conferences AND
    Users can select their teams starting at the end of this season.

    Selection will go as follows (based on length of time in league at least as far as I can remember):

    1. pagamer08 - Miami (from Georgia Tech. Stayed in same division, moved teams)
    2. BoSoxFan58 (Staying at Virginia Tech)
    3. mboda (Staying at Boston College)
    4. AJH (Staying at Florida)
    5. SodaAddict (Staying at Clemson)
    6. CTVOLFAN - Texas (from Arkansas)
    7. JOEDESIGNS - Alabama (from LSU, Stayed in same division, moved teams)
    8. firetirepanda1 (Ryalaman) (Staying at South Carolina)
    9. xUGAx Bud Light - Oklahoma
    10. FuzzyLogic - Nebraska
    11. ? - Big 12 North (not Nebraska) or SEC West (not Alabama)
    12. ? - Big 12 North (not Nebraska) or SEC West (not Alabama)

    People can go ahead and start making selections, but I would appreciate no switching teams until the offseason for balance purposes this season. However, if you want to autopilot the remainder of your season if you are switching teams, that's fine as we are getting pretty close to the end of the season.

    Everyone who wants to stay at their current team can stay.

    The Big 12 is the 3rd conference and the split will be 2 teams per division.

    Current teams and divisions are:

    SEC West:
    Alabama (Locked)

    SEC East (Complete):
    Florida (Locked)
    South Carolina (Locked)

    ACC Coastal (Complete):
    Boston College (Locked)
    Clemson (Locked)

    ACC Atlantic (Complete):
    Virginia Tech (Locked)
    Miami (Locked)

    Big 12 North:
    Nebraska (Locked)

    Big 12 South (Complete):
    Texas (Locked)
    Oklahoma (Locked)

    Yeah everyone who wants to stay at their current team can stay.

    The Big 12 is the 3rd conference and the split will be 2 teams per division.

    Current teams and divisions are:

    SEC West:
    LSU
    Arkansas

    SEC East:
    Florida (Locked)
    South Carolina

    ACC Coastal:
    NC State
    Boston College
    Clemson (Locked)

    ACC Atlantic:
    Virginia Tech
    Georgia Tech

    Big 12 North:

    Big 12 South:

    So we need to know which teams from the current divisions are staying put for the people who want to move in to new conferences. Also, if you want to move and the division is currently full, just ask one of the guys if they would be willing to move.

    Haha. South Carolina is better than anything I could get at 9. And I grew up a big Gators/Ole' Ball Coach fan before I came to Maryland so it works out fine.

    Gotta pick in turn unless you are stating that you are staying with your team and if the division is full you can't have that team unless you convince someone to switch out of that division.

    So you are staying with South Carolina ryalaman?

    I have some quick questions before I make my decision. Are we going to be able to switch after every season or is this the one time we can? Or say I choose not to switch right now, can I use my switch during another off-season? If a new user comes into the league will they be able to choose their team from the conference that the team quit from?

    I likely will stay with Virginia Tech, just had some questions

    Good questions.

    If there is an open spot, the open spot in the division will be filled by any open team from that division.

    I suppose if you wanted to switch every season you could, as long as it kept the balance of the 2 team divisions intact.

    I know for me a big part of the fun is staying with a team for the long run, so I intend on staying with Clemson throughout, but for others that might get tired of their teams or something, I'm ok with being able to switch and/or trade teams under the new format, but I would only be ok with someone switching teams at the end of the season, not during. Trading teams with another user... I would handle on a case-by-case basis.

    So... We cant switch until end of season or is that just a recommendation? If so, can it be before Bowl Games?

    It's nice to see your sticking with the Gamecocks Ryal. I think the previous Tennessee coaches curled up in the fetal position when thinking about the Gators. Honestly, we have a great team but there are better teams out there. Carolina has huge upside and if the rivalry is half as good as our Oregon/Stanford rivalry in the Redshirts, we're gonna have some fun. It'll be interesting to see how the west shakes up... LSU, Bama, Auburn and Arkansas are all great teams. Can't wait til we finally get 12 committed guys, this has the potential to be a great OD. It seems the new members are great additions, hopefully we can find 2 more like them.

    It's looking like I'll be sticking with the Tigers. It's ok though, I don't have to in-state recruit against UF, UM, FSU, and USF. It's alot easier with an SEC team.
