    Check In and More

    First off, everyone send me a friend request on Xbox Live: gamertag OkiSillyOkiDoki

    Alright guys, this is where I would like you to do the following:

    1) State your name and gamertag.

    2) Let me know what you would like to do as far as Conference choices and how to divide it- we will see if we can hit some common ground.

    3) Post your availability.

    That should do for now I think.

    1) You can just call me Tk, and my Gamertag is OkiSillyOkiDoki. (super troopers reference anyone?)

    2) I would prefer us to divide between two power conferences, preferably ones with conference championship games- though it isn't a must in my eyes.

    3) Available sporadically every day of the week, though I will always be able to get on at some point in the day for a while.

    Also I would like us all to be friends (Xbox Live friends haha).

    1) I WicktoriuS I - Mark

    2) Split it up between Pac-10 and Big-10 possibly? That way if we beat each other out of the national championship game we at least get the Rose Bowl?

    3) During the summer, I'm available almost all day almost every day.

    When school hits, it's from like 5-12 EST.


    [Edit] If we go with the Pac-10 v Big-10 idea, I'd say leave tOSU out. They're kind of cheese in their ratings and recruiting. ;) Wisconsin would be my team of choice if we're doing good teams.

    League Description

    Dynasty Description

    Online Dynasty Hub: http://www.easports.com/dynasty#module=moduleDynastyHub&dynid=31016&sku=662A0001

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Glory Days is a TF league consisting of pretty much all members that are new to the TF website. We are striving to get into the groove of things and look forward to having some great seasons together. We are trying to be as sim as possible, but are learning in the process. We have decided that we will be a SEC and ACC League, with the teams being split; 6 to each conference. We decided that we only started with 3 star schools. We went this route because we felt it would provide the most fun for the group.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Some rules to make sure you know. Please make sure you are aware of all of the standard TF rules.

    All members MUST understand that being active within the forum and on the dynasty wire - along with the dynasty as a whole - is a must. If you fail to do so, you are subject to punishment deemed fit. I will give you a chance by messaging you or talking to you on live, but if you continue to neglect it I reserve the right to find someone to replace you.

    Chew the Clock: Chew clock feature may only be used inside 4 minutes of the 4th Quarter. Note: If your opponent ok's you chewing the Player must leave game in progress - Please do not start a game if there's a chance you will not be able to finish it. In the case of an emergency situation where you are forced to leave the game, an agreement should be made between both players as to whether the game will be replayed from the start or simulated in the opposing teams favor. Please message me what you two decide on.

    Note: It is ok to chew the clock against a human opponent if they ok it.

    We will try to sim every 72 hours, or sooner if everyone is good to go.

    Restarts: You must provide video evidence for a restart. If it was an accident and you have no proof, sorry but sometimes the ball doesn't roll your way. In the case of a user vs user game I must receive word from both parties stating the ending of the initial game was accidental. Punishment for restarts will vary.

    Stat Padding: If you are found to be stat padding (this is will be judged by me) punishment will go as such:
    1st time = Benched Player that was padding | 2nd time = Loss of scholarships & suspension of player | 3rd time = Kicked from league

    General rules regarding restarts from Site Wide Rules/Expectations: WG.5.0 - Restarts: There will be NO restarts for user vs. cpu games. In the unlikely event that you experience a problem/emergency during your game, notify your commissioner immediately. Failure to instantly notify your commissioner will result in a sim. If restarts become a trend you will be dismissed from the dynasty.

    Scoring Cap: Anyone scoring over 65 points will be docked 2 scholarships every time it happens. It is something I don't want to see happen at all. The only exception is that you may always win by 21 points.

    Supersimming: You are expected to play your own games. Supersimming the last 3-4 minutes of a game that is decided is occasionally exceptable for extenuating circumstances. The commish should be notified immediately if this is the case. How much you simmed, the score before the sim, the final score and the reason for simming is all required information. If the results seem suspect, expect to have the game tossed and the game simmed from the start. Just try to finish every game for the sake of avoiding controversy.

    Playbooks: I do not care what playbook you use on offense, the way I see it you are the coach of the team use what you desire. In regards to defense though, you may use any formation, but either the 4-3, 3-4, or 3-3-5, must be used as the base. If you consistently come out in some other formation and your opponent asks you to stop using that formation please do so. If there continues to be a problem with it punishment will be handed out. I understand there WILL be times when you may have to go Nickel the whole game because of your opponents formations, I would assume your opponent would understand the sitauation and not have a problem with it.

    Options: Speed option out of Ace Big (1 WR and TE on each side) is not allowed at all, no exceptions. Also try not to commit any unrealistic pitches. If it happens in a user game run out of bounds or limit the yards you get. The pitches can get insanely dumb sometimes, so lets keep this as sim as possible.

    Slot WR Post to middle - After some discussion in a few threads, I think it would be best to at least address this within our league. I have always found it as a very exploitable route. I am fine with a few times a game, just be careful using it to much.

    Run Commit is not allowed at all, do not use it. It is one of the cheesiest things int he game because your lineman come free dam near everytime.

    Scoring "limit" - please try to keep your scores somewhat realistic. If you are winning by 50 ease up.

    Getting your games done - Please, for the sake of everyone in the dynasty don't let us see you playing other games if you don't have your week done for our dynasty. This website requires a certain level of committment, so show it.

    Dropping back - Try not to make 15 yard drops with your QB, a lot of Leagues here look at that as cheese.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Position Changes
    Please don't make any position changes that don't make sense. Don't turn Safeties into Linebackers, WR's into TE's. In some cases it will work, just use your head regarding this. Take a look at these restrictions when it comes to position changes. When it says a restriction, that means that is the minimum height or weight a players must be to be changed to that position.

    Pos Notes
    QB: No Restrictions
    RB: No Restrictions
    FB: Restricted
    Weight restriction > 230 lbs
    Speed restriction < 84
    WR: No restrictions
    TE: Restricted
    Height restriction > 6'2''
    Weight restriction > 225lbs
    Speed restriction < 86
    OL: No restrictions
    DT: Restricted
    Weight restriction > 265 lbs
    DE: Restricted
    Height restriction > 6'2''
    Weight restriction > 240 lbs
    Speed Restriction < 83
    OLB: Restricted
    Weight restriction > 225 lbs
    Speed Restriction < 85
    MLB: Restricted
    Weight restriction > 235 lbs
    Speed restriction < 85
    DB: No restrictions
    RET: No Restrictions

    To save time and keep it policed, I will need to be shown all position changes that you are going to do. I will make a thread during the offseason and each teams position changes will need to be "approved" by me, similar to how Drifter and Ryno approve apps here on TF.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Players leaving
    A player will not be allowed to attempt to sway a player from the pro draft if he:
    is > 95 OVR
    is a JR that has won the Heisman
    is a JR and has won a major award (Thorpe, Maxwell, Biletnikoff, etc) and is > 90 OVR
    Kickers and punters can be swayed from pro draft regardless of OVR and class.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Scholarships
    The amount of scholarships that can be offered at any given time will be dictated by the following formula:

    A = number of seniors on your team that will graduate
    B = number of underclassmen that leave for the pro draft.
    C = One additional scholarship to provide a cushion.
    D = Remaining amount of players needed to reach 70.

    A + B + C + D = total number of available scholarships.

    Note: Committed players count against your scholarship limit.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Punishment - There will be infractions committed in this dynasty that will require me to take some type of action. I will list a few of them.

    Pursuading a player 95 overall or better to stay (or any other player that is not allowed to be persuaded to stay): This will cost you 5 scholarships; I know that is harsh but I don't think many people will do it if this is the punishment.

    Using more scholarships then allowed: This could cost you anything from a few games simmed, to full season autopilot (simmed recruiting and games [my idea of ncaa probation]). The amount of punishment of course depends on history of problems, along with severity of violation.

    Other things that could land you in hot water: restarting games, failing to complete your week in the allotted time (without notifying me with a reason why), over scoring, cheesy tactics, forum inactivity ---- all these things COULD get you in trouble. I will try to take it easy, but sometimes I will have to drop the hammer.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    And finally, please be aware of what cheesing is. If you do not know ask.

    If your opponent is calling something you are doing cheese, please refrain from doing it. If you do not think it is, and continue to do it during the game, I will rule on wether or not it is. If it is decided the incident was indeed cheesy, I will either sim the game or let you guys replay it; whatever the other player decides is fair.

    I really dont mind what we do. Taking smaller teams can be fun, but so can the elite teams lol. Again, I don't mind. But if we do top teams I pick my alma mater....Ohio State!

    I'm in Ohio. I'm available any day after 5 pm. And all day on weekends (unless something comes up of course).

    So far I am liking the Big10 and Pac 10 Idea... I would like to avoid using the power teams though if possible. We will decide that later though.
