    Team Choices

    I will choose from Auburn, Rutgers, or South Carolina. I will see how this shakes out and what teams everyone is going for before making a decision -- not due to the teams themselves (all of my choices are pretty mediocre as far as next season's talent), but to see how the conference alignment is going.

    I know I told you USC, but if that is PK's team, I will pick someone else.

    I forgot to add JC. He's playing as MSU. The above list makes it look like we have an opening. My apologies Bruce, if that is what you wanted to speak to me about.

    I put you in as USC. We have months to work it out if two guys want the same team.

    Right now I am leaning towards Rutgers, or ANY school near Florida -- AMP has that mapped out as his own personal recruiting territory right now, thanks to all you Big 10/midwest loving crazies. :D

    Hey, if Ohio State and USC are in, Florida is fair game. Go Gators!

    Plus they have sweet uniforms.

    I'd love to see the Gators. OSU hates them. FSU hates them.

    Sounds like fun.

    I may just have to run with Fresno St. and take on that "ANYBODY, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE" Giant killer show on the road!

    lol...On second thought, they need to work on beating Hawaii and Boise St. first...

    If Shaun wants USC then I can play as OU...It would give me the Red River Shootout against Reagle and some games against Raz's Cornhuskers...

    Then there's some other teams in the Pac-10 that I like...

    (PK goes back to being undecided...):confused:

    I think Cal will start the year in the top 25.

    Georgia Tech will have a really interesting team with the new fleXbox One offense. Also should start ranked.

    Fresno would be cool.

    Hell, I'm undecided for ya.

    I'm still torn between Nebraska and Wisconsin. Went with the Cornhuskers for now because the Big 10 was crowded with Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State all in.

    'Course, adding Oklahoma would make the Big 12 just as full with Colorado, Texas and OU.

    Dare I return to Pitt after smack-talking the Big East?

    I'll put them in the mix. Still have to see how everything shakes out, but here are the teams I am considering:

    Rutgers
    Florida
    Auburn

    So long South Carolina... :D

    I am going to give PK USC.

    I am not sure who I am going to take yet, but I think they will suck.:)

    I've been thinking about this, too. I'm a huge Buckeye fan, so I don't think anything is going to shake my team choice, but it would be nice to struggle a bit more early.

    I think I'm going to take a crappy team in the East instead. Been looking at the 'Cuse, but I hate the dome.

    Kentucky and Auburn both stink right now and would be fun to rebuild in the SEC. Maybe Virginia in the ACC. Or you could stick in the PAC-10 and roll with Stanford.

    So many bad teams to choose from.

    When do they typically start leaking team ratings for the new game?

    Auburn would be a fun one. Colorado and Nebraska too, but they're already spoken for. ND was great for this in '09. I doubt they'll be a lot higher in '10, but who knows. If I had to rate them I'd probably say 87 OVR, but more realistically I'd guess they'd get around an 84-85.

    Auburn is semi-spoken for already, people -- back off! hahaha

    Semi-seriously, no one is picking any of the 3 teams I listed until I decide. We are not having another "Basis fears the Trojans" moment :D

    FLORIDA GATORS

    Reasoning has many parts to it:

    - Great starting point for me. I came into the OFFL after a couple of seasons, so it took me that much longer to get my team on the level that it needed to be.

    - Rivalry with AMP! AMP is a cool guy and very fun to be rivals with. Our games were always spirited, and in good fun. I am looking forward to re-kindling that. Miami-FSU is in real-life a MUCH stronger and heated rivalry, so hopefully we can transfer that to the two better Florida teams.

    - Conference Championship Game / THE SEC! I love the SEC and really feel like their conference champ deserves to be in the national championship game every year, should the champ be undefeated. Controversy aside, I love these two aspects.

    - Florida is my favorite "southern" team! Aside from Auburn, they take the cake. If it was Auburn's starting point from this year, then I would've done it -- but they fell off the map.

    - The SWAMP! Such an awesome stadium, I love it!

    - Recruiting! Florida is a great state to recruit in and to help build a program. So are Texas, California, and Ohio, and those are frankly too crowded. This will help keep AMP in check, too :D

    And lastly, and MOST importantly: I really feel like I can build some awesome storylines with the Gators. I really was leaning towards Rutgers, but being from New Jersey I really do not like them and would have a tough time having fun generating good content about them. Their coach is a douche, their stadium expansion is laughable, all of their fans are PHONY, and I could go on and on...

    There you have it. Looking forward to it!

    This about right so far?

    OK, it might be a good time to start talking about what scheduling issues might come up.

    Could use a pick from Shaun as well.

    Alright, I may change my mind (read: chicken out), but for now:

    Basis fears Army.
