    So it looks like it's 6-0 for three conferences so safe to say that's the direction we'll head. With that, here are the leagues that I think should be in play.

    I think we've all had enough of the Big Least so they and any other conference without a conf. championship game are excluded.

    Here is a list of the conferences and teams that I predict will be unavailable (6 stars, or 5 stars in a power state)

    Pac-12
    USC

    Big Ten
    Ohio State

    ACC
    Florida State

    SEC
    Alabama
    Florida
    LSU?
    Auburn?

    I chose pac-12, big 11 or whatever and ACC

    I decided against SEC because they seemed to have less teams to choose from since 4 teams are likely 5-6 star juggernauts.

    That is a good point. I chose the SEC, ACC and Pac 12 but the Big 10 may have a better choice of 4 or 5 star teams.

    Went with Pac12, little 10 (I refuse to call a conference by the name they've chosen if they can't count), and the SEC. As I mentioned in another thread, I was in the ACC last version, so I've seen enough of them. lol

    I think this is the winner. Now we have to wait on ratings. I don't think LSU or Auburn will be 6 star. Been wrong before though.

    What were they last year? That is who I was in last years dynasty. They are good but weren't six star good to begin with. I think they are top 5 in most preseason polls, so maybe.

    Not sure what they were last season. They are 11-2 and talent rich so I'm thinking they will be 6, but I could be wrong. Either way they should be a fun team if they are available.

    It looks like we are going with the Big 10 as well: Michigan, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Penn State, etc. should all be very fun as well.

    I'm not a huge Big 10 fan but there is a team or two I wouldn't mind running with.

    I'd still love to see Stanford, UCLA, and Cal come off the available list. Just having California as a near-permanent pipeline state seems weak.

    Yeah I hear you, but then you're really making the Pac-12 almost unpalatable for some.

    I went Pac 12, Big 10, SEC. It would be some interesting recruiting and the quality of teams is more even.

    Lsu was a 6 star team in 11 and will be for 12. If you wanna take cal stanford and Ucla out of team choices might as well just use Acc instead.

    Yeah, personally I dont see Cal and Stanford being a problem. MAYBE UCLA, but I can't see them as having a greater advantage than say Michigan or UGA. I'm thinking all 3 will be 4 star and below
