    Overdrive Members,

    I wanted to let you know of a couple announcements. Ctvolfan has stepped down from the league due to time constraints and will not be moving into season 2 with us. I let him know we will have him back at any time.

    Also, based on feedback from all of you, our website leadership, and my own consideration, DreSmithJr and Killernuts will not be moving into season 2 with us.

    That leaves us with 9/12 right now. I have been recruiting to fill the last 3 spots. I ask you all to do the same. If you know anyone that would be a good fit, please let me know and send them my way. Due to the people leaving, we only have myself in the Big 10 and now an opening in the SEC.

    I am hoping to get these spots filled this week and kickoff 2011 on Friday.

    No I wanted everyone to get their bearings on the players leaving, as that may be the most important step in the offseason. We are advancing at 9pm tonight.

    Yep thanks for letting me in fellas. I'll get my game in when I get home from school tonight, have some homework to finish up quick before I head home. Looking forward to playing with you all.

    Sounds good.... I extended the Week 1 to Week 2 advance until tomorrow night if need be. Tim - I believe you are the only newbie with a game. But, if the rest of you want to get entrenched with your recruits while in week 1 yet, you have time.

    Thanks!

    Just finished up my game by the way, and apparently I have a solid juco recruit at quarterback. 88 overall in his first year and is starting over Bausserman. Hopefully I can hang on to this #1 ranking for a while ;)

    At this point we are just waiting for Dakota to accept and ready up, which still is within our extended advance window. We should be advanced today (wed.)

    Also, I wanted to point out that the USER vs USER games were balanced and even up until 4 days ago, when we experienced the latest wave of turnover. We lost 2 and gained 3... AFTER the customer schedule had been created. So, although we should be within the realm of balance, there may be a couple of users with less than 3 USER games or more than 3 USER games. Please roll with the punches on this and hopefully we will have the stability to flip into season 3 with the same owner base.

    Also, now that we have everyone on board, please lets get those Scouting Reports posted for 2011. Keep in mind, that for this season only, we are going to allow 2 provisional scholorships to each team. So, please factor that into your scholorship limit. So, it should look like this:

    Seniors + # below 70 + 1 cushion + 2 provisional = Scholarship Limit

    Just out of curiosity did it say I was ready to advance last night? I went to do my recruiting for this week and it said I had only offered 4 scholarships and didn't have my center that committed last night. So I'm assuming that the last 6 hours I did after I played my game didn't upload.

    Huh that's weird then. I was pretty sure that it said I did, but I wasn't sure. I wonder what happened to my other 6 hours of recruiting lol. Oh well, hopefully it doesn't hurt me too bad in the long run.
