    Name: John
    Age: 29
    Gamertag/PSN (please state whether its PS or XBOX): GoBlue10
    AIM/YIM/Skype/ICQ: NA
    Time Zone: Eastern
    General Availability for User vs User games: Random (I work swing shifts)
    Favorite Teams: Michigan
    How did you hear about Tradition Sports: Operation Sports forums

    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where?
    Random NCAA online dynasties. One or two on OS, but they didn't last very long.
    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online?
    24 years. Since NCAA 03.
    3. What type of player would you say you are?
    Sim, I attempt to replicate what I see on Saturdays.
    4. Our community consists of a more mature bunch and the average age is somewhere around 28-30 years old. How do you feel about any differences or similarities between our population and your age?
    I'm in favor of it. A big turn-off from online play is the "win at all cost" mentality.
    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns?
    Yes. None at the moment.
    6. Please tell us a little about yourself. We want to get to know you and hope that you will be around for a long time.
    29 from PA. Played HS and small time college ball. Married, no kids yet.
    7. Fitting into the community is vital to the experience here at TSO. How do you see yourself fitting into our community?
    I can see myself fitting in nicely here.
    8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TSO?
    An enjoyable experience playing my favorite franchise with people who enjoy the game as much as I do.
    9. Situation: You are participating in a league game when your opponent clearly breaks the league or site rules. What do you do? How do you handle the situation?
    I would ask them if they knew they were breaking the rules and if they didn't I would refer them to the rules page here at TSO. If it was intentional I would notify the commissioner of the dynasty to see if this is a reoccurring event and if so allow them to handle the situation accordingly.
    10. Have you checked out the different leagues here at TSO? Which leagues (if any) are you interested in? What is your preferred league setup?
    I did not check out any leagues yet, but plan on it soon. I'm interested in a dynasty that advances 2-3 times a week where I can be Michigan (It's easier to stay committed to a dynasty if you are passionate about the team you are using.) Due to my work schedule daily advances are difficult for me to keep up with the dynasty and wouldn't be fair to everyone else in the league.

    I'm sorry, XBOX. I'm currently ranked 7 or 8 overall on the season showdown michigan page. #2 in online competition and #1 in loyalty. I'm the first player on the page with 100 skills, 100 strategy and 100 sportsmanship in all 3 categories.

    Hopefully someone starting a dynasty will offer an invite. I'm looking to run a similar style to Michigan. Year 1 with Denard will be heavy spread, read-option with a little pro style mixed in. Year 2 will be a full transition to the pro-style offense. I do use custom playbooks on O and D and I'm willing to submit my formations with specific number of run and pass formations of out each so people don't think I run fleXbox One as well as 5-wide.

    BOOOOOO......they better show up this year now that PSU is going to be down for several years. The B1G's rep has been hurting the past few years and needs all of their traditional programs to increase their game. That includes you too Nebraska.

    Yay for the Texas Bowl and the Fighting Hunger Bowl.

    They haven't won the B1G in a decade.

    Keep in mind they went 14-12 the last two years.

    14-12 .... in spite of having Ron Zook at the helm. With a real coach, they would have been at worst 9-3 last season.

    Everyone knows sweatervest ran a shady program just like he did at YSU. We'll see what Urban does with the NCAA looking over their shoulder now.

    Illinois has put out the most 1st round picks from the B1G since he got there, and is top 3 I believe in total players drafted from the B1G. Sounds like a good recruiter to me.
