    NCAA Football 2011

    Guys,

    Since we haven't started this discussion, I wanted to get a feel for how you would like the league organized in 2011.

    Are we going to roll with whatever teams we want or what?

    I am going to start working on filling our membership with GOOD, SOLID members, so we should get an idea of what format and teams we are going to roll with.

    Feel free to throw your ideas out, we are just thinking aloud.

    Shaun

    I'd like to see something like this year -- roll with the team you really want! We haven't seen many team switches (ANY actually -- just some member turnover), and I think that was a product of picking our favorite team, or one we could see ourselves going the distance with.

    I'm torn between 3 schools at the moment. Here is how I have them ordered:

    1. Arizona State
    2. Auburn
    3. Colorado

    Dat will be returning as Notre Dame, unless he says he isn't returning.

    I'd really like to have Michigan State in an onliner...but I know JC has dibs on them so I am currently undecided. I kind of like the thought of staying in the Big 12. The setup we have going on right now really works for me. I really enjoy being in this league and intend to be with it as long as I can.

    I think we should all choose mid tier teams like the tradition is doing. Would make recruiting more even and fun

    I like the way things are right now. This is the most fun I've had in an online league by far and I think the fact that we have all remained active for as long as 2010 has been out is a testament to how well the league has worked out.

    I think we should continue to go with the teams we really want, it keeps everyone's interest longer than going with a random team that you are only marginally interested in. I intend to remain at Michigan State (Sorry Masler) so I can start off on the right foot this time (none of those useless CPU recruits, it's like having Matt Millen recruit for you).

    I am undecided about my team. Hova may get his wish b/c its a toss up between Miami, FSU, Texas or USC. Would like to see the rosters to get a good feel.

    I would enjoy that as well, but I am not going to make the jello's and Dat's of the world give up their favorite team.

    Obviously, I don't mind rolling with a crappy team. I am kind of torn between teams, I may pick another fix'em up.

    I suppose I'd be ok with this as long as MSU is considered a mid-tier team haha

    I heard that he thinks the new commish is a real douche and refuses to play in any league that would have him as the commish.

    Guys, since we are missing some pieces for '11, I have invited Dru50 to join the league. Please welcome him, I am sure he will be a fantastic addition to the E-League.

    Hey guys, it will be great to be in this league from ground zero. I look forward to participating in the OD next year.

    Regarding team discussions, is the current thought that all teams are open or are people leaning toward middle of the road schools. Just curious, I'm not a real fan of any particular team so I'm sure I can find a team to fit with the group.

    Welcome Dru,

    I think the current thought is that all teams are "open", that being said most of the users are leaning toward keeping their current team in the 2011 version. I know there are a couple that want to change however.

    I am going to change.

    Basically it hinges on what The Deuce does.

    If they pick superpowers, I am going to do the same, otherwise I will take a fixer upper.

    I will do the opposite here. So, if I am going to be a powerhouse, it will be Ohio State. Otherwise, I am leaning toward SMU/Baylor/etc. The way it has been voted, we will do re-builders in The Deuce, so I am probably (98%) going to be the Buckeyes.

    That will give us 4 Big Ten Teams.

    Great....Another powerhouse to beat me down all year. Actually I think Psycho said he isn't going to be Penn State next year, so we would still be at 3 teams in the Big Ten...plus ND who has rivalries with two of the 3 user Big Ten teams.

    Shaun, which conferences do you need people in? I can try and find a team to fit my style in one of them I'm sure. My only thing will be that I'd like to be in a different conference than what I'm in for Coast 2 Coast (currently I'm Texas over there but I may switch to a Pac 10 team for 2011).
