    Season preview idea

    What would everyone think of putting everyone in a hat and drawing teams to do season previews? Just thought it might be a neat idea to get something going, plus it gives an outside perspective at a team.

    Obviously this would take complete participation from everyone.

    Coach Team
    1. DigginGraves Missouri
    2. Bogey21 Penn State
    3. BBJ Nebraska
    4. ShaunLMason UCLA
    5. Bondzai Florida State
    6. Flo Virginia Tech
    7. Drifterbub USC
    8. OMLawDog Georgia Tech
    9. JKhaalis Oregon
    10. Muttcope Virginia
    11. Sandman Georgia
    12. JrRawlins Texas A&M

    What do you mean?

    I was going to put all the teams and users onto a random list and then match them up until no one has the teams they own. Then you just do the writeup on whatever team you get matched with.

    Updated first post with who is responsible for which team.

    Try and have them done by the end of the week (real life week) or week 2 of the season

    Sure. As always, I encourage everyone to also post it on the league site.

    Yeah, that's absolutely find. Any information you want to dig up is all good.

    Treat it as if you are a sports reporter or journalist. Ask the coach, ask his division rivals etc.

    Probably best to use a format similar to this:

    Summary:



    Offense:

    What to expect:

    Who to watch:

    Best Pro Prospects:

    Newcomer of the Year:



    Defense:

    What to expect:

    Who to watch:

    Best Pro Prospects:

    Newcomer of the Year:


    Recruiting:

    Bellcow(s):

    Sleeper(s):


    You don't have to stick to this exact format. Just something to give the guys an idea who might have a hard time figuring out where to start.

    Sorry, that may be more of a southern term...

    a bell cow is a prized pick of a population. For example, the Shelby GT500 is Ford's bellcow. OLB Corey Nelson is A&M's Bellcow recruit this season (real life).
