    I thought I would touch on a couple things while we wait for rosters to be released. Call this... Shit you should know.

    For you new guys, I am heavy on content if you haven't noticed. I like to write about the leagues I am in, and all of you in the league hopefully are aware that this was a requirement to be here. I also like to have a history to build on so that throughout the cycles we can look at the best or the worst of our teams, players and coaches.

    Game recaps are required for all your games. As we do move pretty fast (48 hour max), you are not required to write a dissertation of a CPU game if you do not want to. A few lines summarizing the game is sufficient. I want to know your team and your players, and most people do too. User games require a bit more than a blurb for your recaps.

    Each member is also required to provide one piece of content for the year. It can be stats, game of the year, whatever you want. But it is a requirement. I used to require 2 pieces per year, but 1 is sufficient.

    The league also has end of season voting which is required. QB, RB, WR and Defensive Player of the Year are all voted on. Photos of said players are a requirement to vote, so please be sure to capture good screenshots of your stud players as the season comes to a close. We also have a coach of the Year award which is a private vote via PM.

    Until we see how easy (or hard) recruiting is, we will be continue our cap of 2 :5stars: players per year. The COTY winner is awarded a 3rd :5stars: for being awesome.

    The league will start on Heisman difficulty with modified sliders. I have not determined whether I will adjust our speed threshold for realism or balance, and that is something I will need to figure out after playing some games. We also will be starting with Heisman recruiting as well. We want the CPU to be as competitive as possible in all phases of the game. Finally... we will be setting our coaching XP gain to slow. The way I see it, multiple seasons are probably not tested at EA, therefore it appears to be easy to gain XP for your coach. By setting this on slow, we will get the most challenge and have to choose wisely for your skill trees.

    We will also be playing with Coaching Carousel enabled. But there will be no movement for our coaches. This helps change the dynamic across the league as coaches change school, as well as allow our coach prestige to change (finally).

    The next step is to wait for team ratings to be released. Once that happens, we will begin team selection. Team selection will be made by me. Each coach will PM me a Top 5 (either conference) and then every day for 12 days, I will reveal one team. Choose wisely as there are no changing schools for the cycle. So make sure you are happy with your list.

    Once teams are chosen, we wait for the game to be released. We will have a tournament amongst the league to learn the game and get to practice. So have fun with it. The Rules in the league description still apply to these games.

    So that's it for now... I will update this thread periodically as more information is available.

    I think content will be better now that we are in two conferences. It was really, really hard to give a shit about the other conferences after a few seasons.

    I will continue my average ratings thing I did the last two releases. I might have something cooking up in the next few weeks or so while we wait as well.

    Here is our NCAA 11 HOF class if anyone is interested. PAgamer07

    Quarterbacks: Ryan Mallet (Arkansas), Joe Green (Florida)
    Half Backs: "Quizz Rogers" (Oregon State), Anthony Wilkerson (Stanford), Marcus Coker (Iowa), Travis Fisher (Michigan), Daniel Reid (LSU)
    Wide Receivers: Brian Stratton (Oregon)
    Defensive Tackles: Courtney Ward (Tennessee)
    Defense Ends: Ronald Powell (Florida), Kevin Stewart (Arizona State)
    Linebackers: Joe Adkins (Penn State), Rodney Walker (Michigan)

    None of these are valid due to David "Bayou" Thibodeaux not being voted in.

    The game of the year feature HAS to come back this year with so many user games. I think @AJ Hart MN and I won 95% of the time.

    TEClemson53 is it possible to eliminate the NCAA logo at the bottom of the image? I may get you to add the players Nachos mentioned too. Id have to find the players.

    I am also considering stealing a page out of The Deuce's playbook and renaming our awards in honor of our Hall of Famers.

    yes, it's a layered PSD file so it's not a bitch to add members. It's easily removable.
