    Welcome to the Official Invites and Preseason Thread for The Cathedral '13!

    Next Advance (to Week 1):
    -When 11/11 are ready or
    -Saturday 10pm EST

    Week Notes:
    -Plague is not good.
    -Take your time with your recruiting board and scouting. It will payoff in the end! Big deal this year. Huge deal.

    It's been a long road here boys! Let me say with all gayness, you guys have been unbelievable. Amazing how involved you have been with no game or ongoing dynasty for the last three months. Love it and love this league. In this same vein, let us continue the amazingness through committing to the league, to each other and to making sure this is about fun and encouragement instead of bitching and negativity... we'll leave that to the others! This said, let the games begin...


    I will begin issuing Invites Tonight. Here's the deal:

    1) Recruiting is somewhat broken right now (the cpu is not offering schollies like it should be making it much easier than supposed to be on Heisman). But we all want to start. However, due to the brokenness, we are indeed instituting the following recruiting cap: you are allowed only one 4-star signing.

    The reality is in real life (looking at Rivals), the highest ranked class among us was WKy at #75. They did not sign a four-star but one school behind them did. The most 3-stars signed by any class below this was 19... thus no cap for 3-stars. Have at it. Maybe somewhat unrealistic but we are living the dream here so we will allow some fun. If it gets stupid, we will institute harder caps.

    2) We are going to use All-American Sliders (I think you are all wusses is why) and Heisman Recruiting. I will adjust kicking and penalty sliders as I see fit and let you know. But we are starting at all defaults. Just know that if we all dominate, we will be changing to Heisman gameplay.

    3) We are leaving everyone 1 FCS team for an easy win. Outside of this, I will be replacing all FCS games with average to bad teams to play.

    4) We are using default named rosters (no edits, deletes, or adds... just names) and 7-minute quarters.

    5) Finally, you will not receive an invite until you:
    a) have actually completed your Team Page. This means correct title, filled out schedule, added records
    (total and user), and cleaned up template players I had put in.
    b) have completed your scholarship and recruiting numbers equation on the correct page.
    c) have declared your playbook (offense and defense with explanation/write-up for custom or major changes) and explained your style of play. a few of you have declared with little to no explanation. Come on.
    Note: I won't name names or argue with you :) You just won't get an invite.

    6) We are starting early and with no patch or fixes. Pray for us. If all goes to hell again like last year, stay strong. And know this might happen, lol. EA Sports. Sigh.

    you can put in everything (like you signed you had already done) and then change it when you get your new schedule. You can also fix your title, add total and user records and not be a flaming midget with a gay lisp :)

    most need to add user records and Bonner I can't see either of your records. Reasoning: I want to keep really good league history and you tracking this for me each season makes my job and accuracy 100% easier/better. Thanks :)

    I am trying to fix the problem only you can see as we speak! But hell if I can make it do what I want. I had it all set up with my OCD and you had to go screw with my system didn't you! I still can't see why you could not read my page? But alas here I am on google doc's again like a middle aged man trying to figure out how this blasted interweb works!

    Brett invited. Stellar job friend. Thank you for your humble service to this league. Other more senior spoiled members should be embarrassed. You are a bright shining star. A flame. A flicker. A ray of hope in a sea of despair.

    sidenote piece of advice: all you guys with "records" in your signature. delete those and just keep your team page up to date. don't create a million moving parts for yourselves!
