    The Cradle inaugural Football Tourney

    Hey guys,
    I had talked to some of you about doing something like this, so I'll go ahead and gauge interest in it.

    In order to let guys in the league get to know eachother, get to know eachother's style of play, and maybe start some rivalries, I'm wanting to organize a tourney for our members before '11 comes out.

    I'm thinking a double elimination tourney works best, but I'm open to whatever you guys think.

    Winner of the tourney gets 25 bonus BP to start out '11, so it's high stakes gaming.

    What do you guys think?

    This sounds good. The only draw back is that we would have to use the default rosters unless we run the tourney out of online dynasty. This is how you do it:

    Find the rosters you wanna use
    Invite everyone in the OD
    Organize week 1 to match up the participants for round 1
    After everyone plays, delete the dynasty and repeat steps for next round

    I know this sounds like a hassle but this would be a good way to incorporate better rosters for the tourney.

    Another suggestion I have is for the touney-wise odd number of users:

    -Once we get to round 3 of the winners bracket and round 2 of the losers bracket we will have 3 users.
    -In order to figure out who gets the byes we go by total points scored (Whoever has the highest gets the bye)
    -In case of a tie for total points we go by scoring margins (Again, whoever has the highest gets the bye.

    I know it sounds kind of confusing but it will make more sense once we get to that point.

    I don't mind if we just use the stock rosters, and do unranked games w/ 6 min quarters..

    That's a good way to determine the bye's though Perry.

    Shouldn't it be scoring margin first, then points scored?
    I think a 24-0 is a better win then a 32-28. IMO.

    Rent it again or just pay the late fee. It like $1 a day. Or you can rent it from Gamefly.

    Ha. I don't have NCAA 10 at all, but I will go rent it to play in this... But, we could also do a NCAA 11 tournament when the game comes out. Which would pass the time for named rosters and help us get use to the feel of the game. Just a suggestion

    Lets not stress about forcing this tourney, I like the idea of a tourney after the release before rosters are out though. We could just all post GT's and get in some good practice games.

    I definitely think the tourny when the release of '11 happens is the way to go. I'm having a hard time enjoying anything with '10 anymore...

    i like the idea of the 11 tourney. Mainly because i dont have 10 anymore and it would be nice to practice before the season starts.

    Yea I agree, we should just play some friendlies on 10' and then worry about a tourney when 11' comes out. Thats at least how I feel.
