    From my experience of being in leagues since NCAA '09, the best part of them is getting to know the other people within them and the interactions you have.

    I guess I'll kick it off;

    I have been playing in leagues online since 2008, starting with NCAA '09. I am a 28, married with 2 kids and am a Health Advisor with United Health Group. I am a HUGE Notre Dame fan and am glad to see that they are on the right track since making the mistake of letting Ty Willingham go to hire that fat piece of crap Charlie Weiss. I am also a big Buffalo Bills fan and a Sabres fan (guess what region I live in). I have been a member here since 09 and haven't looked back since joining. I used to be a huge member of the OS community, but am basically non-exsistent there because of the way the community is there. Besides online sports gaming, I play Magic the Gathering (don't knock it, you have no idea how much those damn cards are worth!), and I golf. Other than that I'm basically on this site when I can.

    Hey Fellas.

    I'm a marketing pro out of Milw., WI. 36, two kids, HS Football coach (1st year DC, after 12 years of HC'ing 8th grade football). Been playing Madden/NCAA probably since the first versions...and even Tecmo Bowl before that...oh not to mention 10 yard fight from Atari. Yes, I'm old, and have loved football with a passion.

    I will be a solid league member. I enjoy the games and process much more than just trying to win-a-all-costs even if it means being cheese or cheating.

    In other words, take it easy on me when we play ;)

    Feel free to text me at 414-405-0094 if you need to reach me quickly. Thanks, Steve

    Hey guys,

    I'm 31 and work on an IT Help Desk for Dr Pepper/Snapple in Cary, NC. I was born and raised in North Carolina, just southeast of Raleigh. I spent 5 years in the US Marine Corps and got out in '08.

    I've been playing video games since I was about 8 and had my original NES lol. I also remember Tecmo Bowl and 10-yard Fight, and I've played NCAA Football every year since it first came out. I've also been playing Madden just about every year since '93 lol. I also enjoy PC games, especially MMOs and RPGs.

    I'm a huge UNC and NY Giants fan!

    Good luck in the dynasty :)

    I'm 28 and married, I do support for a software company based out of Lincoln, NE but I live in Denver. I'm a huge Husker fan and Steelers fan. I've been playing NCAA since 2001 and just started OD's last year. Looking forward to some good fair competition, played 3 online games last night and 2/3 were cheesers, shit gets old.

    Good luck all.

    Hi guys.....
    I'm the old guy here. 37 year old husband and father of 2 beautiful daughters. Like Boil, I'm a Husker fan as I live in a community of around 3000 people that is centrally located in between Lincoln and Omaha, NE. I work for the state and preach a little bit on the weekends as an Associate pastor to two small congregations.
    I have played video games ever since the Atari and have never looked back. I love sports, video games, and a combination of the two and am excited to begin our journey together here.
    Good luck guys!!

    Hey guys,
    I'm 23 years old. I graduated last year from the University of Southern California in international relations and american pop culture. I recently started a trucking company (I dont drive them so my availability should not be affected by work). I am a huge Trojan fan (best game I attended was the 2008 USC Ohio State game...35-3 gloroious). I looked foward to our league and I am sure it will be awesome.

    Good luck this season!

    I'm 30 years old, living in the city of chokeadelphia pa aka philly, Been playing video games since a kid. Huge Florida State football fan & North Carolina basketball, don't really care for the other major sports mainly just root for players and gambling on the games. Played in some OD's in the past didn't play last year as the game was dreadful from the start, just retired from a madden OF that went since release day last year was a great time, will prolly never win a BCS title but I just enjoy playing makes the game more enjoyable when you've got a good group of players.. Work at some run down factory job after busting my poker BR last winter. Hope to move to Vegas in 2013.

    Hey guys,

    I'm 19 and currently a student at Penn State, studying either finance or accounting. I am a huge sports fan and follow all sports pretty much. I'm obviously a big time PSU sports fan, but I also root for the Packers and UNC basketball. I've been gaming since I was a young kid, and really enjoy these online dynasties. Hopefully I can get to know you guys pretty well and we can have a successful dynasty.

    Sup guys,
    I'm 24 years old and just had my 1st wedding anniversary. No kids unless you count dogs, I have two of those. Been playing video games since the old Nintendo days, been playing NCAA since 96 - I think that was my first one. I work for a IT Virtualization company in Houston, and I live in Cypress, which is just west of Houston. Graduated from Texas A&M in 2010 with a degree in Management of Information Systems and have always loved strategic, real football. Played high school in Katy - with Andy Dalton actually. So I would like to consider myself a meticulous player. When I win its from ball control and defense, I am not a real high scoring type of player.

    Nice, I am switching my degree from a CPS degree to an CIS degree. I don't mind programming, it was fun to learn but I don't see myself doing it for a living. Easier job placement for a CIS than a CPS.

    Yeah, I could not do programming for a living, need to be a little social and take my eyes off a computer screen every now and then.

    Hello guys,

    Where to start? I will be turning the big 40 in October. I currently live in Sterling Heights, Michigan and have been married for 6 years in August. I am a huge college football fan growing up watching Michigan and Michigan State play every Saturday with my Mom and my Dad since I could remember. Anyhow I have always been a big fan of playing games online especially the NCAA series.

    I served in the United States Air Force from 1992-96 and saw the world for free and graduated from University of California at Santa Barbara and no I did not go to college with Jim Rome.

    I have been the gambling industry for 11 years working as a poker and blackjack dealer. It has provided me with a good life and I thank God everyday for him being able to provide for me and my family.

    I look forward to getting to know everybody as well and look forward to getting started soon and yes I am back in town now from vacation.

    I am excited to get the game today and look forward to bringing a new tradition to Maryland.

    Take care

    Good, glad one of the other "elder" gamers is in my conference. I just can't keep up with the young guns it seems.

    Thank you for your service and I'm glad you were able to beat your addiction. I have a buddy who lost everything to his addiction and is now putting his life back together. Being able to witness that first hand helped me understand it a little better but i think it's one of those things that you really won't know what it's like. Congrats on that.

    I'm Jon, I'm getting ready to turn 30 next month. I'm happily married (anyone married knows that's a lie) for 5 years now and have two beautiful daughters as well as my first little man on the way in October. As of a few years ago, I've been an alumni of the Univ. of North Florida. Prior to my current occupation, I spent 4 years serving in the Coast Guard. I've basically spent most of my life, besides military duty, living in Jacksonville, FL.

    By day, I'm a mild-mannered IT support specialist for a large national e-commerce company. By night I'm usually found playing MW3 or some sports game. Football is my main passion. I'm a die-hard Gators & Jags fan (season ticket owner since '02) and an avid fantasy football participant along with being a habitual football gambler. Other than that, I'm a born and bred Mets/Knicks/and Rangers fan and trying to find my way into becoming a fan of the Euro football. I've also coached youth football on some level for the last 12 years, and enjoy every minute of it.

    All in all, happy to be here, and looking forward to enjoying the experience.

    Feel free to text me if needed.
