    What do you guys think of this:

    Each year, we have a champ. So far, that champ has always been one of us. The next year, the champ's schedule is tougher, to make a repeat really hard, as it really is and probably should be.

    But up until now, I have been making that schedule. What if we did this:
    1. Champ adds a user game.
    2. That game will be on the road.
    3. The league picks who that game will be against by voting in a poll.
    Now, we can open the season with that game if we like, and everyone will know what's coming, and the hype can start during the off-season.

    What do you guys think?

    I like the idea of a kickoff classic.

    However, it can't be the only game played on week 1. As it is some of us wont play a game for 2 weeks probably.

    Of course. I couldn't leave week one open if I tried. I try to schedule everyone a cupcake in week one. The same will happen next year, except for two of us.

    I will tell you this guys, playing a user week one is a bitch. I played then ranked #1 LSU in week one this year and I had no idea what the "feel" of my team was like. I practiced some but you never quite get the same "feel" that you do playing games. This will be an awesome way to start the year and even if you lose it you will still have a chance to compete for the Big One by winning out.

    Easy, you've hit the freakin' jackpot on this one. Love it! I've played a lot of Week 1 user games and it is indeed a challenge. A defending champ shouldn't want it any other way. Arch', I also love the vote. Let's do it for sure.
