How to choose teams...

  1. Option 1 - random draft order with no consideration for 2012 results

    66.7%
  2. Option 2 - those who won NC's in 2012 pick after those who did not

    33.3%
  3. Option 3 - those who won NC's in 2012 all play in same division

    I see there being 3 options for drafting teams:
    1. Random draft order - no consideration for prior release results.
    2. Split group into those that won NC's in 2012 and those that didn't - random draft order determines order of selection within those groups with those who didn't win a 2012 NC picking first.
    3. Segregate those who won NC's into one division, with those who didn't win in the other division. Random draft order for each division to pick teams.
    There are issues with each, not the least of which is that there are only 5 people who won a NC in 2012 (myself, whygodwhy1111, Cheez, Wyrmreaver and Kapono) and then we have to determine how you fit in DirtycashDylan and whoever our 12th guy is.

    What do you guys think? For now, please only vote for one option and post why you picked it.

    Random order. I think that some of the results last season in terms of who won titles and who didn't was based on the fact that they had a better team anyways. My sense is that everyone here is reasonably laid back and not feeling like they have to get 'bama so they can be the grand champion or something. I personally wouldn't pick a 6* school even if I had the first choice.

    I know I have said I will take Alabama, all I want to do is make recchem's life hell. If he is Auburn I want to Bama. If he wants to finish some business with LSU, I can either be Arkansas, Bama

    Whatever you guys decide. If it's open then I really would like OU as they're my favorite team but I'm cool with whatev.

    I am all for giving those who did not have as good of teams or did not perform as well last year a little boost.

    Well..... both of the random orders have you picking late enough that 'Bama should be off the board...... you never know with the rest of these knuckleheads though, they may pick Kentucky, Vandy, Ole Miss etc and then just complain all year that you "got lucky because you ended up with a better team"

    :p

    Oh I realized this last time we drafted when Forrest took Minnesota with the first pick and Michigan State was just sitting there at like #8 or whenever I came up

    In the first random one he picks 7th (6th if we only have 11 guys) I would be shocked if FSU wasn't available when he came up

    I agree... like I said though, if he is getting handed a team there is no reason that we should be making other guys pick late because they won.....

    Another way of thinking of it is this, let's say I pick second to last and he's last.... everyone has passed on FSU so he can have them, so I am stuck with Ole Miss, Kentucky, Vandy, or Miss State..... or I can take FSU (or another ACC school) and let him take one of those other teams.... not fair to ask the guy picking before him to take a worse team.

    What I'd like to do is lock him in at FSU, randomize the other ten guys and start picking teams right now. Any 12th guy we get would be stuck with his choice of whoever is left in the short-handed division
