    You guys know anyone who might want to join us? I figured we should go to known people before we start with the new member pool and all. Anyone in another league with some cool guys? Mind asking a few questions for us?

    Thanks.

    Hey guys, some of the dudes in The Pride are awesome, I'm just not sure they want to make the jump to premiere... The Pride is a bit slower paced and fits a lot of the guys busier schedules outside of TSO.

    I can politely ask a few guys.

    Go for it, I don't think trying to recruit more people to "premiere" status would be frowned upon by management.

    Well, I'll Bite...

    BigSmooth33, Who I know from TSO Futbol Serie, let me know that you guys are recruiting after I hit up The Pride for a spot. I was in The Pride initially but left due to certain circumstances that were personal in nature. Now i'm back with another copy of the game and ready to Sim/coach/recruit/post with the big boys. And I reassure you I am in this for the long haul.

    Having introduced myself (albeit briefly) I just want to again express my interest in joining this OD.

    Go Pokes :D

    Those guys are a big bunch of douchers. Tell'em I said so - especially that foul mouthed preacher. :)

    Hey County,

    Looks like we have an opening in the B1G (we have OSU, Michigan, and ND, who we kind of treat like a B1G team)
    We have an opening in the SEC East (minus SCU) and the West (minus Auburn)
    We have an opening in the Pac 12 North (minus Washington)

    So there are choices. We're all about second chances these days, so as long as you feel you can stick, we can give it a go. The crew here is pretty laid back and such, so fit is more about personality and sportsmanship than anything else. Just know that, if it doesn't work out, I'm going to punch Smooth in his Brady-Hoke-lovin' junk. :)

    If that's it then I'm in, and ready to play.

    *drumroll*
    Edit: supposed to be a Cal Golden Bears logo...

    Dont know much about the team but I <3 Berkeley

    I work a wierd rotating schedule 40 hrs a week but sometimes I get long 15+hr shifts, so I shouldn't have any problems getting games in.

    And I check in here on the daily yo.

    Welcome County, glad to have another guy in the Pac 12 North. Should be fun. Cal has done a great job recruiting, Top 5 Classes in at least 2 of the first 3 years I believe. I know they've signed several players I've been after, so the cupboard is by no means bare. Have fun, look forward to seeing you on the field.

    Thanks guys, playing a dynasty as Cal now just to get the jist. This is my first dynasty not using the Wyo Cowboys so the step up in program level is quite a change. Actually might have a shot at some of those highly recruited guys. Just hoping I can provide some competition for you all.

    ETA on invite? are you guys gonna finish the season out?

    It happens for a while. The key is to play small ball and take shots downfield pretty selectively. It's definitely a challenge, and it takes some getting used to, but after a while, you find yourself forced to make pretty realistic football calls and decisions.

    We're all happy to share strategy and such ... and we've all been worked over by the CPU.

    You looking to play a game tonight or tomorrow? I can add you now, after the next advance, or at the start of the off-season. Whichever you prefer.

    Just let me know and keep practicing! ;-)

    Go ahead and add me at the next advance. I'm getting a little better at the dink and dunk passing, and scoring touchdowns. So thanks for the advice.
    Game on!

    Like dude said its all about short passing and the run game. Also being a pass first offense in this league would be extremely hard unless your a hell of a lot better than me so run the ball over and over and when you think you should pass for once, run it again.

    Cool. Our settings are more forgiving than the base Heisman set, but you should still get a good challenge. Welcome to the league.
