    I guess it can be debated whehter FSU should be included or not. I guess that depends on whether or not they will be extremely overated in the game this year, lol.

    In regards to Miami and FSU, it should be both in or both out IMHO.

    Ok so I'm assuming this is going to be no top 10 teams + Georgia since they are a :5stars: team and most likely rated high.

    Way too much nit picking, I say the list in the first post is what guys have to chose from and we move on. Too much of "that team is too good" or "I'm going to get out recruited."

    I agree, OK St isn't exactly a recruiting powerhouse. At the end of the day people can still make noise if they have good stick skills. For now Imma leave them there unless the vast majority oppose it.

    We are ging to balance out the conferences right. Two people in each division, or atleast keep only four per conference.

    I'm a die hard Miami fan and I say they should not be included. They have the prestige, the players who are young and the recruiting base of FL, CA and TX as pipeline states.

    Same thing for FSU, plus I think I read they are 90+ overall.

    My picks
    Miami (if they stay in it)
    NC

    If Miami is out Ok St. should be too. Looking over all the teams they are the most stacked.

    My 3:

    1. VT Tech
    2. Maryland
    3. Ole Miss

    Ok I went to Operation Sport and looked at the screenshots that show team ratings.

    ACC
    Boston College (B-,B-,B-)
    Virginia Tech (B+,B+,B+)
    Clemson (B,B+,B)
    Georgia Tech (B+,B,A-)
    Maryland (B-,B,C+)
    UNC (B+,B+,A-)
    NC State (B-,B-,B-)
    Miami (B+,B+,A-)
    Wake Forest (C+,B-,C)
    Virginia (C,C+,C)
    Florida St (A-,B+,A)
    Duke (C-,C,C-)

    SEC
    Kentucky (C+,C+,C+)
    Arkansas (B-,B-.C+)
    South Carolina(C+,B-,C+)
    Auburn (B-,B-,B-)
    Vanderbilt (C,C+,C)
    Miss St. (C,C+,C)
    Ole Miss (B+,B+,A-)

    BIG 12
    Colorado (C,C+,C)
    Baylor (C+,C+,C+)
    Iowa St. (C,C+,C-)
    Oklahoma St. (A-,A,B+)
    Kansas (C+,B,C)
    Texas A&M (B,B,B+)
    Kansas St (C+,C+,B-)
    Texas Tech (B-,B-,B-)
    Missouri (C+,B-,C)
    Nebraska (B+,B+,B+)

    So basically for you guys all worried about high rated teams or whatever you are eliminating Ga Tech, UNC, Miami, FSU, Ole Miss, Ok St. and Nebraska. To the point where if we use ACC and SEC people really have little choice of who they use. Doing a 2 conference system constricts things as well. Are we getting a little too picky here?

    That would leave 20 teams to choose from, that's cool with me. Like I said, you could bring other teams from other conf. who are not B+ or above. You could keep it in the region by picking from Big East or C-USA.

    My prefernece is not to start off with really good teams with high prestige. I just would like for the recruiting be a little bit harder which it would be without using the elite teams. Plus it would not be as hard as using Sun Belt teams since we'll be in ACC/SEC.

    At the end of the day I do not really care if we go with or without the really good teams. Whatever the majority wants I'm good with.
