    I hope I'm not stepping on Masler 's toes, but let's try a mock draft. Not so much to see which teams we get, but let's see who we wind up with in our divisions (to see how far off GoGators is with his pairings...or any of the other pairings guys have come up with). And this might address jello1717 's team selection/availability concerns.

    Using the SEC/ACC

    1. Big Suge Knight -- take any 5 star

    4 star teams

    2. Darkwing
    3. GoGators
    4. edge7771
    5. Masler
    6. UofCWildcat

    3 star teams

    7. blLL flo
    8. jello1717
    9. dakota7

    Humor me and let's see how we wind up.

    I would likely go with FSU but the U is also appealing to me

    Since FSU and the U are open we should open up UF since we'll have other users in the state and I'd open up Auburn.

    No, thats the point. Lets see how a draft would shake out.

    Auburn was a 6 star last season because they won the BCS the year before. They shouldn't be again this year and IMO should be usable in our format.

    Agreed. They had no success last year. I really hope they don't keep that 6th star. Should be a 4 Star IMO at best.

    Exactly. I think the SEC will look more like this this year:

    Bama - 6
    Auburn - 5
    Arkansas - 5 (top 10 team here)
    LSU - 6
    Florida - 5 (it's possible they drop to 5 after going 7-6 last season. If FSU is a five star right now there's no reason UF shouldn't be too.....and it hurts to say that)
    Georgia - 5
    everyone else as is.

    The only other thing I'd add is that restricting some of these teams defeats the purpose of having an ACC vs SEC setup. For example, if a user is FSU, then someone should definitely be Florida. If someone is Georgia Tech, then someone should definitely be Georgia. We should have South Carolina vs Clemson. Those cross conference rivalries are what makes this setup intriguing IMO. I mean look what happened with Dakota and I in `11. It was one sided, but it was a superb rivalry and a game with BCS implications every year at the end of the season.

    Like I said, this is just a rough draft. We can't lock into teams until they announce the prestiges....which I think was in June last year. I'm more interested in seeing how we match up with a draft vs pairing us the way you did. Basically, can an organic draft with some tiered restrictions give us competitive balance or do we need to slot guys together?

    We should probably get a better idea once E3 goes down and then a hands on when TB goes live. Shaun Mason any idea when that will happen?

    Continue as we are for now, I want to see how this plays out. It's just a mock draft.

    They didn't announce team prestige last year, we went and got them at E3.

    Darkwing said he didn't want to be in the SEC so I don't think we can just assume that.

    Would it be easier to have everyone list their top 5 teams?
