    Name: Mike or Michael (whichever is fine with me)
    Age: 25
    State: WV
    Availability: Right now, I'm out of work so whenever. Once I find another job (shouldn't be too long) I'll post up my availability.

    1. How many other TF leagues are you in, and how many total?
    Currently I'm in TF: IV, TF: The Creation (going slow), and OFFL: Small School (also going slow)

    2. What is your favorite college football team?
    West Virginia Mountaineers

    3. Have you ever used justin.tv, or do you have the set up (webcam) to broadcast your user vs user games?
    I would love to, but my internet is total shit when it comes to upload bandwidth so it's pretty much out of the question. Though as soon as I get another job, I'll be purchasing some way to record games so that I'll at least have that going.

    4. Tell us a little about yourself in less than a paragraph, and feel free to post a picture or two as well.
    I'm a 25 year old college drop out that decided that going to college in WV sucks monkey ass and I don't have the money to go anywhere else. I'm a mildly aspiring chef that's looking to go back to school to learn how to be one (if and when everything works itself out right). I currently work as Tech Support for a local dialup ISP in WV (cushy job that usually doesn't require much thought). I'm a child of the 80s and 90s cartoons: Transformers, GI Joe, Thundercats, He-Man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dragonball Z, Ren and Stimpy, Doug, Rocko's Modern Life; you know, the GOOD cartoons. Been playing video games since I was 12 when I got my NES though I played quite a bit of the old arcade games back in the day as well as the Atari 2600 (always been a generation behind video game wise cause my parents could never afford it).

    I already put up a couple of pics in the 4th horseman forum.

    I am a full-time student at Texas State University in San Marcos. I either want to teach and coach at a high school (soccer and football), or become a Professor at a college/university. I love sports. Basketball, football, and soccer are my big 3 and I have been playing them since I can remember. I play on a flag football team, where I operate out of the slot on offense(WR) and on defense play CB/pass rusher. Our season starts pretty soon so hopefully I will have some highlights to post!

    I'm 32, divorced, and have a 4 year old son. I recently got laid off from my job so I've had a ton of time to play these games. Hopefully that won't last too long. I pretty much just play the games that are on this site. I was in The Deuce for NCAA 09 and now 10. I'll be in the Madden 10 league and I was also in the Tradition Fight Club for the UFC game.

    Well I started a full-time job right out of high school so I haven't went to college but I intend to next year(car will be payed off and i will no longer be in debt). I love football no matter if its high-school, college, pro, or semi-pro. I just got into online play a few months ago but I've always played a sim style. Slider adjustments was something I had never thought of but I like them now that I've played in a few leagues that use them.

    4. Tell us a little about yourself in less than a paragraph
    I like video games and sports and by balls are abnormally large in comparison to my below-average dangling pain. FYI if and when this new KOTOR game comes out It will consume my life for 6 weeks so I may not be on here during that period. It wont come out till after january so I don't think it will be a prob.

    I recently graduated law school but am having a hard time finding work as a lawyer. So right now I do odd jobs to put money in my pocket and keep the girlfriend happy. I may get a job I actually want soon so my hours of availability may switch. No worries though, Ill still be able to get my games in - just not as late. I love football. I played in college and coach 11 year olds right now. I love video games- I think I went batshit when my dad got me my nintendo bundle with Super Mario back in the day. So, you put the 2 together (video games and football) and Im in heaven. Luckily, I have an understanding girlfriend.

    Availability: Usually after 9pm on weedays and pretty flexible on weekends. Just ask. I'm around alot so I'm not hard to find. I am prone to leave town for an entire weekend from time to time but just holler at me and we can get it set up.

    1. How many other TF leagues are you in, and how many total?
    TF4 which is awesome, Southern Exposure which is coming around (there's been alot of turnover), and this one. I do another with my best friend in Ohio but that's just a side thing.

    THE Ohio State Buckeyes

    3. Have you ever used justin.tv, or do you have the set up (webcam) to broadcast your user vs user games?
    No, and no. My laptop got stolen in April (fuckers!) I haven't replaced it yet. I assume I pretty much need that to move forward.

    4. Tell us a little about yourself in less than a paragraph, and feel free to post a picture or two as well.

    I'm Brian... I manage a small construction supply business in Orlando. It's brutal right now...but it has been for a year plus. I enjoy playing video games obviously, my prized possesions are my xbox and my ipod. I wouldn't know what to do without either. I also grew up on Transformers, TMNT, GI Joe, etc. They don't make cool stuff like that anymore. I'm a pretty easy going dude, grew up in Columbus, love my Buckeyes, and love Florida weather. With the Big10 network now available here I'm in heaven!

    Speaking of C-Bus sixthdis, what part of town are you moving too? I lived all over that city but mostly in the 161 & Cleveland Ave, Cleveland & 17th (ghetto as hell back in the day!) and Galloway/Georgesville area. I ran a DHL/Airborne Express route for a few years on campus actually. It was awesome. I miss it up there except the weather, I loved the city.

    No


    4. Tell us a little about yourself in less than a paragraph, and feel free to post a picture or two as well.

    I graduated from Bowling Green State University in 2005 and since then have been working as a manager at a local hotel. Initially I went for a degree in sport management but due to GPA problems I was could not complete my major and was forced into a degree in Education. I also obtained a Master's Degree online at University of Phoenix and am searching for a position where I can apply my newly gained information. This may result in availability changes but I will let the league knows when that occurs.

    Oh and for pics of me you can see my Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/bravejaf (note all pics taken in one crazy weekend and I was very drunk most of that time :)).

    Man that schedule might get hard to work around...

    Especially for us guys that are going to have 9-5 shifts and need to be in bed by 10 or 11pm EST...


    Other then that though, welcome to the league man!

    It's kind of a pain in the ass sometimes for guys like me that make our bread from 8a - 5p or whatever...but it's doable, hasn't been a big deal for me.

    Sorry about my schedule. I do make the schedule but unfortunately I have to work around all of my associates' schedules. Two can only work morning shifts so that means most mornings are covered. One other person prefers evenings so her and I usually split the evening shifts. I occasionally have to cover overnight shifts as well, with a week straight of overnight shifts coming just after the Ohio State/USC game (I know because I'm covering for an OSU grad who has tickets to the game). I wish I could say my schedule was consistent but it is completely chaotic. My days off are sporadic but usually fall during the middle of the week.

    It's not a HUGE deal man. You seem really committed to getting shit done so I'm sure it'll all work out. One good thing is with only 3 user games a season, there shouldn't be TOO many snag ups with scheduling conflicts.

    Availability: after 9pm EST most nights and periodically during the day on weekends. I have 2 young kids (boys both under age 2) so when they are up I am usually busy with them.

    1. How many other TF leagues are you in, and how many total? I'm in 2 leagues here (this and OFFL-Mid Majors) and 2 others. All of them move pretty slow and NCAA is pretty much the only game I play anymore.


    2. What is your favorite college football team? I like all the Pac 10 schools and also watch Big 10 quite a bit. Don't really have a favorite team per se, my school (UC Santa Barbara) didn't play football.


    3. Have you ever used justin.tv, or do you have the set up (webcam) to broadcast your user vs user games? I don't know how to do either. If someone could explain the process I'm willing to try.


    4. Tell us a little about yourself in less than a paragraph, and feel free to post a picture or two as well. - As I mentioned above, I have two little kids and recently changed jobs to get closer to home and have more time to spend with them. My life is pretty much working, hanging with the wife and kids and then playing football or watching football when everyone is asleep at the house.

    Thanks

    I was born and raised in Miami, so it's more by default more than anything. I support all my home teams, even the Florida Panthers. To be honest, I use to go against the grain when I was smaller and rout for FSU when they played, just to go against the family. Yeah, I was young and dumb...

    The Miami Hurricanes are my favorite team in the world, both collegiate and professional.
