    NCAA 2011 League

    I would like to gauge interest on starting a league.

    Two years ago I was involved in a great one and would like to find that again.

    It would have to be a slow advance,5-7 days. Dunno if we could host here or have to go elsewhere.

    Any interest from guys in here?

    I'd love it and I know frisk loves it. For me it's just a money issue. Why not join a slow premier league here? I'd love a omfl NCAA league

    I'm definately interested, especially if we can include the Pac-10. I really want to play in an NCAA league this year, and I'd like to be able to take my awful Washinton State Cougars and rebuild them....and of course I'd love it to be with you guys.

    Maybe we could do a SEC, Big 12, Pac 10 League? I know I could get Bruce to play in the Pac with me....

    So if we had:
    -Jeremy
    -Weblink
    -Frisk
    -Bruce
    -Dunlap
    -Nate

    That would be a pretty sweet lineup to get us started.

    Jeremy,

    I'm going to get the ball rolling on this if you don't mind. I don't necessarily want to be commish, but I want to make sure we get everything taken care of well in advance of the NCAA release.

    I'll talk to Ryno or Drifter today hopefully. All spots will be reserved for our best owners first, and we will fill outside after that.

    I have lots of ideas on this. I was in an awesome dynasty league two years ago and I have a good idea how to make this one the best.

    Frisk has already told me he wouldnt be interested and Nate seems to be leaning towards not playing.

    We wouldnt necessarily need a full message board set-up to do this. We could make a sub-forum here and that should suffice.

    I will be on AIM a little later and we can talk and finalize some things.

    I can't play guys. Things are just too tight for me to get the game, and I am strapped. Sorry :(

    I've never played in a NCAA league so I will be learning as we go. Really excited about the chance to play with your guys though. Would really like you to be in there Nate, but I understand money issues. If you get close to being able to get the game and need a little extra to put you over the top, let me know and I would love to help bud. (y)

    Jeremy be sure to check out the new dynasty Wire feature, that would make things a lot easier. If u guys go fullout I would not be able to play but if it's just a side deal I would love to play with u guys. I love this game more than madden and I could never not be interested in a league with a group of standup guys. I want wash so dunlap is my rival!

    Nate if money is the real issue I've got some crisp 20s with ur name on it!

    Frisk, what do you mean by fullout?

    I want this league to be a filler for Madden downtime. A 5-7 day advance.

    Here is a list of team ratings. I would suggest going with middle of the pack teams and not allow powerhouses. Maybe any team rated B or lower.

    Also, custom conferences with 4 owners per conference..??

    I have taken out all the A teams and it leaves us with this. I am sure some ratings will change once the game hits the shelves and gets its first update but its a good starting point.

    I would also like to wait till the real name rosters are released to start.

    I know our schedules are pretty opposite jeremy so hard for us to get on AIM together. But I talked to driferbub and ryno today and it sounds like we would have their support to make this a premier league.

    I would love to make this a two conference league...Pac-10 and then another one that the rest of you guys want. We could start soon after the release and make it the same advance rate as OMFL so it can be the 'filler' like Jeremy talked about. If we do that we'd get about 4-5 seasons in so enough for us to have our first recruiting class go all the way through.

    I also can donate to the Nate fund, and I definately want Frisk in Muttlake with the Dawgs as my rival. You two wouldn't need to do any of the commish stuff, as Jeremy and I could handle it. Just play your games and have fun, talk a little smack along the way.

    What do you think? I'm positive we'd have the support of TF, and we could call it the ONFL.

    I dunno if I like a 2 conference league. It will severly hurt owners chances of major bowl bids by grouping everyone together. I think custom conferences with 3-4 users per conference is way to go.

    Also Dunlap, we will have to be flexible on the advancement. My schedule is not fixed so I may need some leniancy. Some weeks I can play everday for 5-6 days and some weeks I may need the entire 7 days to get my week done.

    Remember the trade off for having 4 conferences of 3 teams is that you are going to have a TON of CPU games. I don't know how many guys would continue to stay interested in a league where you are playing 6-8 CPU games per season.

    Gotta make some compromises I guess to get a league like this started, so how about if we do a league with NO set advance. . .that should help you. In other words we just state that as soon as the final game is in we advance. If guys arent active in trying to atleast schedule their games, we can do something instead.

    I've got to talk to Rynoaid for a bit, but i will post my idea here soon.

    I think u are just spoiled by Madden Dunlap, all OD's here on TF have no more than 5 or 6 user games in a season. Most limit it to 4.

    I have played an offsite league like this before, we actually used created 1AA teams, it was pretty fun. We advanced once or twice a week.

    I don't think Ryno is going to like the idea of a dynasty that is 5 or 6 day advance unless all 12 or in one conference. So if we have multiple conferences we should just do it for fun on our own and use the Dynasty Wire feature.

    I agree with Frisk.

    I have talked to my brother and he will play. I have also asked Claven and he also opted out.

    I will post more later. I would like to start team selection here with the next 2-3 days.

    Ok, here would be my league idea.

    ONFL

    -No set advance schedule. We advance as soon as the last game is played whether that is 2 days or 7 days. If things start to get really slow, we can take steps to counteract this, but it shouldn't be a problem.

    -2 conferences. This will mean about 4-6 CPU games per season....not as many had we done 3 or 4 conferences. (4 conferences of 3 teams means up to 10 CPU games per year!). This will also allow users the chance to play in 3 major bowls...BCS Title, BCS At Large Bid, BCS Conference Champ Bid. This means on any given year half of our owners could be playing in major bowls. Thats a pretty good number. So with 2 conferences I'm thinking SEC (for all you southern guys) and Pac-10 (for gaddy, frisk, and myself). Oh and this may be nerdy, but I don't like the idea of custom conferences because it takes a little of the excitement away for me if I'm Wazzu but playing in the ACC or somewhere.

    -We should definately become an official TF league, premier or not. Remember we don't need to pay anymore money to become premier, but that's an option. If we are a 2 conference dynasty, we'd be the ONLY one on TF....we'd also by the ONLY one on TF with the Pac-10. Couple that with the recruiting advantage that TF will give us, I think this is a no brainer. Let's be honest, even with a core group of 12 guys, there are bound to be a few of us at least who won't make it through the full calendar year and I'd definately like to get into a league I know will continue and not just fizzle out come January. Being an offical TF league will help us do this.

    -I'd be willing to co-commish this or commish this and do all the menial tasks to keep the league rolling. I know everybody's time is short and I might have the most 'free time' since I will only be in the OMFL after the NCAA release. I'd be willing to do all the grunt work for us if this means making this an official TF league, and getting this core group of guys here involved.

    TIMELINE
    Today-Sunday: Finalize Owners
    June 21-27: Get our infrastructure with TF finalized and running
    June 28-July 12: Team Draft and discuss rulebook & regulations
    July 13: Launch date.....we go 'live' with Week 1 once the rosters with names are released.

    Let me know what you think.

    Somehow I was writing all the above when jeremy and frisk wrote their stuff...haha. Wasn't trying to step on any toes.....those posts weren't there when I started to type the above stuff.

    I will say that not using our advantage of making this a TF league might be a mistake. There are plenty of long advance leagues out there.....I have a feeling Ryno would be fine with us being atleast non-premier.....again atleast for recruiting purposes.

    Custom conferences....ick. I could deal with it.......but loses some luster for me.
