    What are yall's thoughts on having protected rivalries. I would love to have this, as each one of us can be paired with another user year in and out. You can never have too many rivalries here.

    Personally, I'd like to be paired up with Cheez. We go back to 11 with the Wisky-Illini games that we had. And no matter how high I was ranked and how much his team sucked, it always turned into a great game. Also Kapono and I can have games where we chug 5 beers before kickoff.

    Generally speaking, i like having protected rivalries on. For Mizzou, im happy to just rotate through and play everyone. Though if someone feels the need to play me every season thats cool too

    I don't think FSU or Miami really have natural rivals in the west division. I'd prefer no protected rivals so we can play different people each season but it doesn't matter much to me. That being said, UF plays LSU each season so I'm guessing the SEC has protected rivals already, meaning FSU and Miami could match up with the new guys in the west: Missouri and A&M.

    And I'm guessing that's a reason the SEC put Missouri in the west division, so they could keep their protected rivalries.

    We should keep ours. It should already be in the game

    Protected rivals until before 2012
    Florida-LSU
    Alabama-Tennessee
    Arkansas-South Carolina
    Auburn-Georgia
    Mississippi St.-Kentucky
    Ole Miss- Vanderbilt

    I heard A&M might be matched up with S. Carolina and Missouri would be matched up with Arkansas in real life but I'm not 100%. But Missouri's in the west for our set-up so who knows what we should do.

    I think if Missouri is in the West, it screws up it's protected rival (i am assuming Texas A&M). I almost would prefer to drop the protected rivalry because Cheez and I do not have protected rivalry user game

    I kind of think this too..... if we keep it on, some guys will have locked in CPU games and others will have users....

    Everybody will rotate through and play everyone with it off and your "every season" rivalries will be in division match-ups

    A&M had a rivalry with Arkansas before the Big XII was created. That is the rivalry I would expect them to take.

    A&M and arky are in the same division, so they'll play every year. I saw something online aboutMizzou and Arky being border rivals, with us in division we'll play regardless. The cross division rivalries are like 'bama vs UT and LSU vs UF

    I thought A&M was in the other division. My mistake.

    The more I think about it I think we leave the protected rivals off, so that everyone rotates who they play. I think the natural rivalries that will develop will be among the 6 users in each division anyway.
