New things for Season 5 (all read) There's quite a few things that I'd like to adjust going into Season 5.. 1. Writing summaries of your game in the weekly thread. -You are no longer required (you can still have one) to hold your own thread in the "game summaries" sub forum. You are, however, expected to give a brief summary of how your game went in the weekly threads. That means giving the box score with a line or two, just copying and pasting the one you wrote in your individual thread, etc. ^^^ #1 is the most important! 2. Season Previews. -The season has already kicked off, but I'd like everyone to do a season preview of their team. Offense, defense, recruiting, etc..make it look good, and post it in this thread. 3. Extra 4 and 5 star scholarships. -I'm talking about the system we already have. Right now, the most anyone could have is 3, and that is if they won the NC, conference, and made all their user games...I want to add more to that. I think 5-6 5stars would be a good max, and I'll also be adding a little on to the 4 star. The achievements you make this season will effect your recruiting classes NEXT season. I want it to be this: Win the BCS National Championship = recruit 2 additional 5 star players Win a BCS Bowl Game (Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, Orange) = recruit an additional 5 star player Win a Conference Championship = recruit an additional 5 star player No rule violations (recruiting or otherwise) = recruit an additional 5 star player Win 10 games = recruit 2 additional 4 star player Finish Season AP Top 25 = recruit an additional 4 star player Win a bowl game = recruit an additional 4 star player Show up for all member vs. member games = recruit an additional 4 star player ^^^ I like them, and think they make sense. I also wanted to put more of an emphasis on "no rule violations". 4. Switching Schools/Conferences -I propose that we try to just stick to the 4 conferences we are in now. It's too jumbled up! Big Ten, Big 12, PAC 10, SEC. Also, I am now opening up the oppurtunity to stick with your school, and change conferences if the computer offers it. However, you must wait 3 seasons since the arrival of a user in that conference in order to give them time to get set up and there isn't a huge advantage. So, Rip is Auburn and this is his first year. At the beginning of Season 8 UCF would be able to switch conferences if the computer offered it when I take it offline. So the earlies this will happen is Year 7. That's all. Post your season previews here.
