    All,

    Everyone who has been around for at least one launch cycle knows that this place will explode in July. The management team is working in the background to prepare for this rush of traffic, but we need some help. As new members flood the website we will struggle to have enough leagues to place them in. Last year was an anomoly with the problems associated with online dynasty. With the new features announced for NCAA '13, we expect there to be a flood of new members looking for leagues to join.

    So, what we are looking for is a group of solid, dedicated members who could head up leagues as necessary. Ideally, anyone looking for a second league would look to head up a group of "newbies" and teach them the ropes. The expectation is to start a league with one or two vets who can lead and show people how we do what we do at TSO.

    If you start one of these leagues, after some time you will be able to groom someone to take over for you. That's how The Redshirts got started, with RynoAid heading them up, and Pagamer07 took over and now that league has turned into a Premier-worthy league.

    It is a tough challenge, but I know some of you are up to it. Any takers?

    The following list is not in any particular order. I will contact you when you can open a league up. Do not do so before you receive communication from me. Also, do not ask. I will let you know.

    This is the first step in taking a leadership role here at TSO... if you think this is a place you would like to invest your time and efforts, this is where you start.

    I know ChildPlease9 was interested in taking over a dynasty a while back. Hopefully he's still up for it

    I am available to run a ps3 league. I'm not in any NCAA leagues right now because there are no open spots, so this would work out great.

    Thanks for volunteering. I'll keep you in mind in case there is a scenario where we run out of willing veterans.

    The one I ran last year failed hard, so that was disappointing. :(

    I'd be interested in giving it another shot and helping out if someone wants to run one together.

    I'm currently running 4th Horseman.... looks like we will have about 6 or 7 (including me) veterans returning for '13. We'll happily fill out the other half of our roster with new guys!

    I'd be honored to help out, and despite the lack of posts, I've spent a considerable amount of time here over the last near 2 years. I'd love to see how my Relegation-Promotion League would run with REAL sim-style play. :D

    Oh, and Xbox 360.

    I Like the Opportunity to Throw my Hat in the Ring for either systems. Was the Former Commish for Gridiron Gladiators and I have run one Ncaa Non-Tf since the Ps2 days, & we're still going.

    I have mentioned previously to you guys that I am interested in running a short-term NCAA league. Maybe this fits what I'm looking for - running it for awhile then stepping down when someone is ready for a leadership role?

    I'm not applying for any premier leagues so I think this is a good arena for me. Otherwise I'll look to join some other non-premier league, I suppose.

    I'm not interested in setting up the forums for a league that is guaranteed to run the maximum of a month. You guys can play ranked games since you won't have time to use anyone you recruit.

    You didn't hear me correctly.

    You said the idea here is have guys who have been around the site for a few releases help run leagues with the opportunity to allow some of the new members to step into a leadership role and take over said league. I'm saying that, that probably meshes with my idea of how long I'm planning on playing NCAA this year, that's all. I'm not saying I even deserve the opportunity just that I am offering to help - I am just trying to be realistic (unlike many others) with how much I plan on playing the game this year.

    Additionally, I've never said I would only play NCAA for a month - you're making that assumption. Separate from this discussion, I do think running an NCAA league with a pre-defined shelf life has some merit. Would it be a month? No that's ridiculous, we're all in agreement there. My expectation was probably 6-8 seasons, if running at a fast pace. A lot of leagues don't even make it that far, so I don't see what the problem is with at least trying something like that - however, I do understand the other side of the coin as well, so no big deal.
