Official Cradle Draft thread Hey Folks. Since we pretty much have decided on the MAC and the Sun Belt, we're going to go ahead and start the draft. A couple notes to alleviate the issues people are having with the star system: 1) Central Michigan is the only 3 star team available, and is, as such, locked from user use. In this way, most everyone's starting on equal footing. 2) In order to make things even for guys who choose 1 star teams, we're going to give guys who chose a 1 star team a "Signing Bonus" of 25 BP. This bonus is equal to starting out with 5 extra wins, which means that coaches who start with the poorer teams have a head start over the players who choose the better ones. However, the 1 star coaches are still going to coach absolutely terrible teams, so it seems that it'd even up the score a bit. The "signing bonus" is contingent on being passed by the league. Regarding the draft, I put each user's name in Random.org, a list randomizer, in order to give each guy an equal shot at getting the first pick. Here is the first screenshot, showing each coaches name being put in the randomizer. The name at the bottom is legacy, our dynasty's 12th and final member. I clicked "Randomize", and this is the list it spat out following: Here's the order: 1. Murkya: 2. areedr811: Troy 3. Papa Perry: FIU 4. legacy: Temple 5. NateDawg: Ohio 6. prewett53: Middle Tennessee State 7. MSU: North Texas 8. ociu: Miami (OH) 9. sreese: Florida Atlantic 10. cuaacards: Northern Illinois 11. xassassin4lifex: Toledo Rockets 12. MorsDraconis: Eastern Michigan Here are the available teams. Keep in mind that three teams go in each division in the MAC, and 6 total fit into the Sun Belt. MAC MAC East * Akron Zips * Bowling Green Falcons * Buffalo Bulls * Kent State Golden Flashes * Miami RedHawks * Ohio Bobcats: NateDawg * Temple Owls: Legacy MAC West * Ball State Cardinals * Central Michigan Chippewas (Locked) * Eastern Michigan Eagles * Northern Illinois Huskies * Toledo Rockets * Western Michigan Broncos Sun Belt Troy: areedr Middle Tennessee Louisiana-Monroe Florida Atlantic Louisiana-Lafayette Arkansas State FIU: Papa Perry North Texas Western Kentucky Good luck!
