    You can be in multiple, but you probably shouldn't be in more than 1 or 2 so you're giving it your full focus and won't find in a position where you're having a tough time getting your games in or content posted.

    I am assuming you're already in a league? Let me know if you're still interested in this one and I'll add you to the list. (y)

    Availability: Every night between 2pm-12am(at some point I'm on, depending on work)
    Team Selection: Wisconsin would be my first choice. If I can't get Wisconsin I would gladly take any Florida team
    What does sim gameplay mean to you?: It means mixing up plays. Not cheesing broken game mechanics such as running QBs scrambling every play, super blitzes, etc. Using more than one 3rd down play. IMO it's ok being predominately run or pass but ya gotta mix in the other sometimes.

    I was told about your OD by Drifterbub. I am interested and available weekdays from 8pm est until 1 am est, and flexible on weekends.

    I would like Florida, or Miami.

    Sim gameplay is realistic gameplay, being as realistic as possible within the game. Not going for it on 4th down unless necessary, running the same plays over and over again, Running way back with the QB etc.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    A 72 Hour League fits great with my schedule.

    I am a available weeknights after 7:00.

    I would love to play with Cal.

    To me sim football means that if you're thinking about doing something during a game that you wouldn't see on Saturday, then don't do it.

    Hey Wick, this looks like a league I'd definitely be interested in. I'm not exactly new, I played in a new member league last season (BCS Blow Up) with a bunch of guys from premium leagues. We had a great run, made it through April and I wound up as commish due to some circumstances with the original guys. Anyway, I figure I can help lead the way with all the new guys in the league if you'd like. Let me know if that's cool, I really like the basic set up of the league and can get references from a bunch of premium guys if you'd like.

    GT: Schreck822
    Availability: 6pm-midnight central most days, anytime weekend depending on what we have going on
    Team Selection: Notre Dame (figure it would be easy enough to put them in the ACC or B1G depending on how the rest of the new guys shake out. Big XII may also be reasonable as lately there has been some smoke about that actually happening. Long story short, ND is flexible if you're open to it)
    What does sim gameplay mean to you?: In my opinion it is summed up very well in the rules you linked to. It includes mixing up plays offensively and defensively, not calling money plays or exploiting weaknesses in the game, basically not cheesing. To me, it also involves how you recruit and everything else. One of the rules we had in our OD last season was no oversigning and limits on recruiting stars per spot. With recruiting on Heisman we might not have to worry too much about it, but would prefer not to see guys pulling in 7 or 8 five stars in a class.

    I'm afraid it's looking that way. Sonn sent out a message to the remaining guys a week or 2 ago and nobody really stepped up at all. I won't have time to take too big of a leadership role unfortunately, or I'd have offered to lead it. Just had baby #2 last week and my job makes it hard to be as active as I'd need to be. If there is a chance to pick it back up though, I'd love to, great league and great concept. If you guys get an opening over in the Redshirts anytime, I'd be happy to jump in :), will miss playing with you guys.

    Availability: It's the summer, so basically any time. But once school starts on Aug 20th, it will be limited to 8pm-11pm central.

    Team Selection: Oregon Ducks, please.

    What does sim gameplay mean to you?: This means playing the game like a true man. Don't quit when the going gets tough, cause the tough will get going soon enough. (Cheesy, I know <3 )

    Btw, I am 15 years old. but i can assure you I am a mature, dedicated, and serious 15 year old.

    There will very likely be some recruiting restrictions with stars in place. There will definitely be something to prevent oversigning as well.
    Are you interested in anyone other than ND? We had someone in the Legacy take em and we put them in the Big 10 and it created some issues with the scheduling. I'll do it if they're the only team you're really interested in, though (and hope it is fixed this year, lol).

    Adding you.
