    Notes:
    -Verify which leagues you are playing in (both? just cathedral?)
    -Finish all pre-season tasks asap
    -Turn off recruiting assists in both leagues
    -Make sure you have a created coach in Cathedral and use an existing coach in The Abbey

    Scheduling Notes:
    -no one will play 2 FCS games. I will replace one with a lower-tier team
    -everyone will be playing at least 1 user game: I will just schedule those that don't have one with each other
    -please specify whether you wish to play an existing FCS team on your schedule. I do not mind one knowing we are starting at the bottom

    Advance Schedule
    -We will be advancing tonight in both leagues
    -Cathedral: 48hr advance or when all users are ready
    -Abbey: fixed Sunday and Wednesday 11pm, EST

    Recruiting Notes
    -Again, we never have more than 70 and never cut players to under 70 (basically you should never cut anyone)
    -Seniors leaving + possible transfers leaving + early entrants to NFL draft = # of schollies
    -You role the dice in estimating transfers out and NFL entrants
    -If you accept transfers in, they count against the following years numbers... not the current year's

    Gameplay and Playbook Notes:
    -We are at 7minute quarters and default All-American. We will re-assess sliders (mainly ease of running game) at the end of Week 7
    -We know each other and I trust you guys (against my better judgment). Use whatever playbooks you want. I imagine a lot of custom books got messed up.
    -But there is ABSOLUTELY NO changing playbooks mid-season
    -If you decide to change playbooks or styles, you must propose to the league the change. Adding and changing plays here or there is fine between seasons

    Recruiting Content Notes:
    -I am getting rid of recruiting tables. No one looks at these dumb things and they burden everyone
    -We will have a recruiting thread where you SHOULD report big signings, interesting updates, rivalry discussions, etc
    -It is my hope that Weave will provide one of his signature Recruiting Table/Analysis thingies to headline this new thread

    Special Content Notes:
    -Hot Seat History: we could use someone to kind of takeover Weave's hot seat and maybe mesh it with the job approval analysis (staying, fired, resign, etc) that I was doing. Please volunteer if you are up for this
    -Team Stats: Will be taken over by Bonner for both leagues
    -Bing Hall: Goose, I would just do one league obviously: The Cathedral
    -Coach/TeamUser Power Rankings: Mullen can do what he wants
    -League History: I will be compiling a nice history that includes up to this point and all leagues going forward

    so I assume all are ready to advance in The Cathedral minus TBone. Then as soon as he gives me the go-ahead, we will advance in the Cathedral early this evening!

    And then when mullen completes Abbey creation tonight... we will advance there as well.

    I'm going with The Cathedral just to make sure I don't burn out and can stay as active as needed.
