    Big East is gone, its the AAC now and I am pretty sure that the WAC is gone as well

    I'm gonna hold off - the overall setup doesn't matter as much to me as the actual conferences. There are certain conferences I have really no interest in (such as th one NIU is in).

    We can start taking a conference vote after we figure out the set up.

    Gotcha - I voted 2 AQ. I agree with Jayrah in that if we are going to pick 2 conferences I'd rather they be recognizable ones and that we are using teams that should be competing for titles. Sorry, but I find it ridiculous when teams like Army or Middle Tennessee St are top 5 after season 3.

    In any case, I think if the "1 AQ 1 non AQ" wins, the guys who vote for that should all play in the non AQ.

    While I can see where you are coming from, Boise and TCU have both elevated themselves over the last 10 years from no name programs to contenders. Also, its not much better seeing Indiana, Minnesota, Vanderbilt, Iowa State, Kansas, etc competing for titles every year. Finally, Army was a college football powerhouse in the 30s and 40s when recchem was just a wee lad

    If it took 10 years I'd buy it. But in the game you'll take whatever crappy team you like and turn them into a national power in 2-3 years. I've seen guys do it in every league for 4 years. We may as well start with power teams since that's where we will be anyway by the time summer is over.

    Boise's rise to power was about that fast.....

    I'm fine with an AQ conference though

    I just enjoy the challenge of building a lesser team to a contender more

    Another thing that would be interesting is if we just had everyone list the team they would take in a take who you want setup. It may be that we are pretty close to a 2 conference setup already, who knows

    We still have a little over a month before the game drops, so I suppose there is no need to rush, I'm just impatient and like to know as early as possible what team everyone is so I can go check out their projected RL roster, traditions at that school etc.

    I would vote but I'm waiting for the masses.

    Oh and the first FU of 14 goes out to Wyrmreaver :). For the record Dru50 is only a month younger than me I believe

    I don't recall which of us is older, but I turned 40 last week.

    For what it's worth my top team choice is Clemson.

    BTW, the AAC which is technically an AQ conference replacing the big east, has Houston in it's membership.... In Fact, AAC has quite a few crappy teams to choose from! USF, UCONN, Cincinnati, Rutgers, Louisville, Temple, Houston, SMU, Memphis, UCF

    Wyrmreaver. Don't worry you will still get a shitty team. whygodwhy1111 will too. I think he played with one eye and left handed last night and still beat me

    I would have guessed USC for you Dru.

    In a pick anyone setup my first choice would be Notre Dame. However, if a lot of people took lower prestige teams I would adjust my choice accordingly

    I'm actually not a USC fan, I don't really have a favorite team.

    You can have ND but after season 1 I'm kicking half your team off for cheating on finals. That's non-negotiable :)

    Or just put us in the SEC where cheating on finals is encouraged
