    Dudes, there has been some talk about starting an NCAA League once it drops in a month. The plan is (I think) or that has been proposed, is to run this league along side our Madden league and import each class as we go through our Madden seasons. The first 4 classes will have the real names of the current college players and then from there on out, there will be generated names from NCAA, not Madden. Another benefit of this will be there won't be a need for draft guides or I guess it will harder at least. With shorter seasons in the NCAA , we should have no trouble keeping pace with the Madden franchise. We all (those of us that participate in the NCAA OD) will be familiar with the draft classes and can provide content to the Madden league as far as story lines/stats etc. since there aren't any storylines with imported draft classes. I think this is a win-win situation and not sure it's been done before on TSO. If you don't want to be a part of the NCAA that's fine, but who all would be interested in this or have any other info/details/advantages/disadvantages about this??

    I'm in

    You know I'm in! If we can get atleast 8 people to sign up, I will pursue it to see if we can start one up new, or head up an existing one that has a lot of spots open.

    I applied to be a commish of an OD so if that is put through then it'd be great to have some quality guys who know the ropes of TSO and can help me breed some fngs.

    I'm in. I love torching defenses in NCAA w/ the Run-and-Shoot. :)

    I'm REALLY REALLY hoping that the import draft class feature will work for online franchise in Madden... in years past though, it was only an offline franchise feature (and a poorly done one at that.)

    But I loved the import class feature even though it sucked before.... because I absolutely hate drafting fake players every year.. I follow both college and pro football too closely to get excited about fictional characters lining up across from the real guys... especially at the skill positions. I think I drafted nothing but lineman in my first RS year just because of that. lol

    If I'm commish and I'm making the choices, you're only in if you don't steal my team there (in NCAA) too.

    There's also gonna have to be some decisions made once we get the numbers such as how many conferences, how many user games, recruiting restrictions, and that stuff.

    Count me in. Dibs on my Illini. If you guys want to make in interesting, we can start it as a carousel league. Basically every user starts as a coordinator for a 1-star program and progresses to bigger and better programs through the carousel (or stays at their 1-st and builds a powerhouse). Also no restarts against CPUs. I'm in another league like that and it's crazy fun, but those first few seasons are aggravating as hell due to all the CPU losses.



    Just a thought.

    I definitely like the idea of a carousel league especially with coach skills which will allow us to not only build up a school, but build up our coach.

    If NCAA is good this year I'm definitely in. I need to see some big changes in gameplay before I'll be happy with it though.

    I'm in but would want to talk about things involving importing rosters. Not sure it would fair to everyone not involved in both leagues to use our NCAA roster that we played with. I would rather just import rosters not used by actual owners so there's no 'inside information' not privy to the whole league.

    This was my issue with it also. Depending on the "advantage" the owners would get could change things.

    Importing draft classes has been so historically awful I don't think we can even consider it an option right now.

    Until we have the games in hand, nothing certain.. all speculation at this point. So just buy NCAA and get in on this! lol

    How much of an advantage are they getting? You would still have all season to scout.

    to me doesn't matter if the advantage is small or big. Any advantage just isn't fair to the people not in both leagues. And there is an advantage for those who would play with or against people who they could draft or choose not to draft.

    would it be cool to draft a guy you used in NCAA, YES!!! but it doesn't make it the best decision for the group
