    The Cradle Restarting

    Alright guys, I'm taking over as commish of this dynasty and want to get a head count of who is going to return. We will fill the remaining spots with new/existing members.

    I want to keep the same feel of The Cradle, but simplify the process of moving up to the bigger schools. We will start off with 6 users in the MAC and 6 users in the Sun Belt(or C-USA if no SunBelt coaches return) as you all did in version 1.0, and will still be moving from said conferences into the Big 10 and ACC.

    How will we move up to the BCS conferences?
    After 2 or 3 seasons(we can vote), we tally up our overall W-L records, and whoever has the best record gets first pick(tie decided by head-to-head record). ..And so on down the line until the user with the worst combined record fills the final BCS conference spot (We will look at perhaps reserving some top-end programs in each BCS conference for the CPU)

    Lets get this thing rolling again. I would like to have invites out by Monday.

    Is there anyway that someone has a copy of the old dynasty? That way the guys that have been here can pick up where they left off...

    Alright! A spark!

    Do you guys want to pick up the dynasty where it left off? Or would you guys rather start from scratch? (This question goes for any other returning Coach also)

    If the majority of returning coaches want to pick up where they left off... then reedr, could you start a new online dynasty with "The Cradle" file and pass me commish?

    Yeah I'm fine with whatever. I think those people that haven't Bern active should be kicked though. That being said I think we'd get more interest if we started from scratch which is fine by me.

    I would be interested. I'm not so sure about using the MAC/Sun Belt though. I'm very active and only want to be a part of a league that has members that are extremely active also.

    I hear you man. Once we get this thing rolling everyone will be active or they will feel the wrath :p

    As far as the MAC/Sun Belt... The idea of the Cradle was to take over a small school and have a system in place where you could take a job with the big boys based on your performance.

    I like the idea, but "The Buzz" system seemed really complicated and it seemed like a lot of work on each players part. As commish I dont really want to have to keep up with 11 guys' hundreds and hundreds of buzz points.

    I do like the idea of users being rewarded for their performance in-game however.

    Tonight, depending on response from existing "The Cradle" members, I will announce a few different conference setup possibilities that we can vote on.

    Right now Im thinking...

    A: MAC and C-USA. moving up into the Big10 and ACC.

    B: MAC and C-USA. moving up into the Big10, Big East, and Pac10

    C: If we cant garner enough interest in the small schools we could just go to a BCS conference set up. No SEC or Big12 though. There are enough ODs here with combinations of those conferences.

    What about the WAC instead of CUSA to start out with? Maybe some interesting teams to use out there.

    And by the way former guys who havent posted in here... you are running out of time.
    Im going to make a post in the new members forum tomorrow. After that point, former members will still be able to rejoin, but their spot will not be guaranteed.

    We had a long discussion before and a vote about this. We decided that the MAC and C-USA were the most evenly matched.

    I like that choice too. would let us play in 2 big conference to feel each other out, then branch off into 3 BCS conferences giving everyone a better shot at a conference championship. and it'd allow for some interesting OOC user games.

    I like that idea also. I'd probably leave Houston a CPU team though. I think since we would only be staying at the schools for a few years, having an elite QB like Case Keenum might give an unfair advantage. Houston doesnt need a new head coach haha.

    Tomorrow when I get up, I'll make a new thread in here where guys can claim their teams and Ill make a post in the new members forum. Hopefully we can get most of the spots filled tomorrow and get the invites out ASAP.
