    This thread will be the home of everything that takes place in season 1.

    I'll start it off by mentioning a few storylines that have recently developed in the land of ShakeNBake

    * Recruits despise UNC. Not a single person even has me in their top 10 until recruit #128, and I only have like 3 guys who have me listed as #1, and those are all scrubby 2 stars.

    * Title of most creative head coach name goes to PRUDENT's Adam Sandler. Worst name is given to Vannyman's Mo Zurry (His team is the Missouri Tigers....really man? lol.) Lastly, the most boring and blatantly least creative name was none other than OldC's Al Golden. Come on Chris, we know you're old and unimaginative, but that is just ridiculous.

    * Whoever gets the #1 overall recruit, I hate you.

    Come on, Vannyman. Mo Zurry is just AWFUL. I mean, come on. That's horrible. Just saying.

    YoungC: Really? Al Golden? You're creating a coach instead of replacing for a reason...

    A few notes for everyone now that the dynasty is finally under way.

    -- Do NOT save the dynasty file when you download it, I think there is a correlation there between saving the file and the "Transfer Failed: Dynasty Server is Unavailable" pop-up that appears after people complete their games. In a test dynasty I haven't had that issue once I stopped saving the file to my harddrive. It happened to me twice after saving it, so hopefully that is the solution.

    -- Remember, the +3 rule is in effect for recruiting, so if you need your memory refreshed on what that entails, just read this:

    Scholarships
    The amount of scholarships that can be offered at any given time will be dictated by the following formula:

    A = Number of graduating seniors on your team.
    B = Number of walk-ons on your team, who may be cut after any season when replaced by a recruit.
    C = Three additional scholarships.
    D = 70 - current amount of players currently on the roster.

    A + B + C + D = total number of available scholarships.

    Note: Committed players count against your scholarship limit.

    -- ABSOLUTELY NO USING FOUR VERTICALS at ANY point in ANY game. This play is straight up cheese, the CPU has no idea how to defend this properly. We trust everyone here, but do not abuse that trust and try to get away with using that play.

    If there's any other notes you would like to add Tyler, feel free.

    Only note I really have is that everybody reread over the League Description thread. Everything that is needed to be known is in that post.

    And I spend a couple of hours doing it, so I want my work to be read. :)

    Also, I will be making a recruiting thread shortly. As shown before, I would like everyone to make a Google Spreadsheet and make a post with your spreadsheet in it. Use my example as a base, or just copy it and make it your team colors.

    I've been told this in my other two leagues too. Thanks.

    Question. I really do love that play, for obvious reasons. Is it still unacceptable to use it in 3rd and long situations? I really don't know any other plays that are good in those situations and that's the only time I use it anyways. If not, then I'll make adjustments.

    It's almost always a guaranteed first down. There's other plays with deep routes but aren't money every time.

    So there's this kid on Missouri named Wes Leftwich. He will be a freshman. He went to my school last year. I grew up with him as a friend. Really weird seeing their actual names on the game. A year or so ago, Wes broke Percy Harvin's 40 record at one of the combines. He ran a 4.3 40 and had a SPARQ rating of 126. Guess what I did with him? Redshirt. :)

    Anyone know "PAT STAT 22", if not some random joined as FSU and did all his recruiting and redshirting. If he is a random he just wasted a chunk of time lol!

    Nope. Randomly joined. EA REALLY screwed it up this year by making it so a dynasty can't be private and allow anything to be seen on the OD website, or editing/sharing videos/news stories. I'm gonna have to make it private...

    I thought you were joking when you said that, lol. I guess that actually wasn't sarcasm! But yeah, there are plenty of other deep route plays out there to use to get first downs. Four verticals is just a cheesy, almost unguardable play thatis being banned with good reason.
