    In another league I saw them do this so I've got the draft order in the following video:





    Ok so in the video I said that we would have a time limit for picks. I WILL NOT DO THAT. We have enough time that I think this will be done in the next day or two. Just make sure you don't take too long.

    If you're going to be out of town or away from the CPU for too long, leave a list of your top 3 or 4 teams and we'll make sure you get the top team available on your list.

    I am going to envoke my comish powers and prohibit Boise St. from being a user team. If my scouting was correct they are the only 5 star + team in either conference so it's best if none of us use them. Quite frankly if you would want to use them in this conference set up you're probably in the wrong league!
    All other teams are fair game.

    On to the fun stuff, the draft!

    Forgot to mention, each conference is only allowed 6 users. Once a conference has 6 users it will be closed.
    Also, the MWC has 2 divisions so we will only allow 3 users in each division.

    Here are the teams in each conference.

    AAC:
    Cincinnati - nellycuz
    Connecticut
    Houston
    Louisville - SFRANGER6969
    Memphis
    Rutgers - BrewBomber
    South Florida - Dase or Days
    Southern Methodist - Jonathan Applegate
    Temple
    UCF - Aspect1

    Mountain West:
    WEST
    Fresno St. - GDip
    Hawaii - Anthrax78
    Nevada
    San Diego St.
    San Jose St. - SmashMouthFB33
    UNLV

    MOUNTAIN:
    Air Force - RRAHx2
    Boise St. (X)
    Colorado St. - jay2149
    New Mexico
    Utah St.
    Wyoming - Hitmhrd72

    the air force academy is about an hour from where i live.

    That option has been tricky for me in past years. I've played with AF a handful of times. It's not spread option, more of a triple option. But should be fun to see them built up

    someone has to bring up the rear. don't fret too much about it. all these teams are pretty equal. doubt you'll get shafted. hell look at rrah, he took one of the worst teams out there.

    Not really. Air Force can be deadly if used correctly. I would be shocked if someone took the team I am looking at getting.

    i think the biggest bitch about drafting last is you'll have to choose a team in a certain division. by then 2 of 3 options will be closed

    man, once i did some scouting I noticed there's a lot of good teams to choose from. I was sure I was going to take Colorado St. as it's the closest school to me and went there often during my college days. But after looking at it I'll go with Fresno St.

    Really liked some of the schools in the AAC but when it came down to it I want the opportunity to play in a conference championship game and the MWC gives me that.

    Dase or Days you're up

    This program has only had a football program since 1997. A school that has only been in the FBS ranks since 2001. In 11 years they have already been to six bowl games(4-2). Most schools would be very excited about that type of success. With that being said, this is a program that has always seemed to be expected to achieve more. Yet, they have not ever been able to reach those goals set by experts across the nation. After two straight years of below .500 records and only winning three games last year. This program decided it was time for change.

    The search committee decided to head out west for it's next coach. They wanted the next coach to be somebody that would want to establish the run, be a physical team(dominate the line of scrimmage both sides) & while also able to have the team play smart. They went and pluck this coach from the Jim Harbaugh coaching tree. This guy has not only learned under Jim Harbaugh but David Shaw(Stanford), former coach of WKU(Will Taggart) & now new head coach of San Jose State(Ron Caragher). You can't argue with the list of coaches above and the success they have had at the college level.

    It is with great excitement to announce David Reynolds as the next head coach for the University of South Florida Bulls! We feel like, he is the perfect coach to get our program back to bowling, double digit wins, conference championships & making this program a main stay among the top programs across the college football landscape!

    On a side note(not part of press conference), From the moment that we had to vote for our first conference. I knew that if the American Athletic Conference(AAC) was selected. I was going to make USF my number one choice. Now I don't know if, I would have pick them over N.C. State had the Atlantic Coast Conference(ACC) been the 2nd conference of options. I try and take as much of a realistic approach to my dynasty teams as can be. Like the choosing of USF was an easy one for me. In real life they have a new head coach, he wants to run the football, play good(tough) defense and win the turnover battle. The teams freshman in 2013 will fit into what my plans for the future of this football program. I know it sounds weird but I have done it this way for a long time.
