    Most of us have turned into a bunch of seasonals and the more I think about it, the less I care or think that is such a bad thing. Our format scares most people away and it's always hard to keep the league going after we start losing people so I say we set out for a goal of 6 months or 5/6 seasons or something along those lines. If users want to continue after that they can but I think most will be ready to put NCAA aside for girls and work and bars and books and other video games, etc.

    I also want to try taking a week break between seasons this year and see if that helps keep peoples interest. I think it'll feel like more of a buildup to the next season (like offseason irl). Assuming Practice Mode will work for us, I'll still want to hit offseason recruiting hard and then take the break on Week 1 so you have the option of practicing with your new team.

    In other words, this is turning into an old man league and I think we may as well embrace it.

    Roll Call

    I'd definitely be more in favor of a week break now that off-season has been streamlined down to two weeks.

    Count me in for another cycle of taking the opposite side of anything Dylan says and arguing with unmatched conviction. (y)

    Nope, I'm in if y'all will keep me. :) I've enjoyed my time despite my challenges and if we're willing to take a slightly slower pace i'm in for the long run. :)

    Maybe text some of the gang and point them towards this thread? I would but I'm not sure who you intend to invite back DirtycashDylan

    I may be interested in the new vision pending life circumstances in a month from now.

    Depending on what the group looks like I may or may not be here. I expected more interest from the core guys.

    Who knows, maybe they'll crawl out of the woodwork eventually?

    It may be time for assimilation.

    There are some other leagues that have openings. If no one wants to commish perhaps that's an option.

    Or maybe joining a new member league and helping comb the n00bs.

    I suppose I could take a hand at commissioning if so desired. I could probably handle it if we keep the pace a bit more casual. Wonder though if that would still interest a few others though..

    If you do become a commissioner, you'll definitely be one of the nicest and most pleasant on the site. :)

    1 Star Teams:
    Akron
    Army
    Buffalo
    E Michigan!
    FAU
    FIU
    Georgia State
    Louisiana Tech
    Memphis
    MTSU
    New Mexico
    New Mexico State
    North Texas
    Old Dominion
    San Jose State
    South Alabama
    Texas State
    UAB
    ULL
    UMass
    UTEP
    UTSA
    Wash State
    W Kentucky
    W Michigan

    This dynasty was built around rivalries so we should continue to emphasize that. Our other most successful ideas was East vs West which would be logical or do North vs South.. In addition if we are going to be H4Y or Dirty Dozen we want to set it up with extremely hard OOC Games, none of these pansies. Plus we want to keep the pace to be a bit more casual to make it more accommodating..

    New Mexico, New Mexico State and UTEP are a three way rivalry that would work out really well..
    EMU, WMU and CMU would be similar..
    Army, Navy and Air Force would be interesting to add despite Navy and Air Force being higher ranked..

    We could also open it up to some of the 2 star teams which would give us a ton of the MAC..

    Just throwing some ideas out there..

    I think I'm only going to do PFP in terms of NCAA OD. If somebody drops and I've got free time ill definitely join up if you'll have me.

    I have a feeling it might be a tough proposition unfortunately for this league.
