    The Z2H Proving Grounds is the area for Z2H coaches to get in some game time outside of the dynasty and practice their skills. The Z2H Board will be keeping up with the wins - losses etc for record. The main focus of the Proving Grounds is to link up with other coaches and have fun. While we all will be striving to win remember that sportsmanship is #1 here as well as on TSO. I will lay out some ground rules for official proving grounds games.

    Scoring System

    Outside of the Wins/Losses
    here is the point system associated with each

    Wins = 5 Points
    Losses = 2 Points

    Each week there will be two games selected as Proving Grounds Game Of The Week. This will mirror the actual games for the corresponding week in NCAA Football. Games will be chosen by Sabo. Those playing these games will receive bonus points. Games will be announced the Sunday of each week of the 2011-12 Season.

    Game of the Week Scoring
    Wins = 8
    Losses = 4


    Settings
    • 7 min
    • Heisman
    RULES
    • Sportsmanship is #1. Respect your fellow coach and have fun.
    • Standard Z2H Rules will apply (Read League Description)
    • Team Selection - For team selection your allowed to use whomever you want. With this being said use common sense when selecting your team. If your opponent is Eastern Michigan dont select Alabama. Try to match up your teams as close to possible.
    Result Reporting

    For reporting results use the following as an example :
    Goals of this area
    My goal in this area is to have fun and get better at the game we all love. What I plan on doing is keeping track of who plays and wins and losses. The reason behind this is because providing this thread becomes popular i plan on rewarding the top 1 or 3 users with some sort of gift around Christmas Time. Now im not sure what this gift will be but it will most likely be TSO merchandise of some sort.

    Im not limiting this area to strictly Z2H members. I want to welcome anyone that is in a TSO dynasty the opportunity to have fun and improve their skills. I feel that sim gamers can always improve by playing other sim gamers. If there is outside interest in this I will be creating a Z2H Proving Grounds Blast Group to help us talk and schedule games. Please be sure to tag me when submitting your application to participate. Once your thread is "Liked" then your free to get your game on. If your interested in participating in this area and your not a member of Z2H I will need to know the following.
    I will update this original post with standings etc. Please keep all talk of games etc etc inside of this thread.
    Hopefully everyone will get something out of this area, learn some things and most importantly HAVE A GREAT TIME.

    Hopefully all the Z2H guys will be down for this. Id like to get some outside guys to come here and play as well to mix things up. It should be alot of fun and a great way to bond as PS3 coaches and have some fun.

    *** I have also created us a blast group to set up games and bs ***

    I have updated the description with the scoring system i came up with. This will reward everyone for playing. Like i said my goal is to have this run through the duration of the actual NCAA 2011-12 Season and give the top 3 some sort of prize.

    Scoring System

    Outside of the Wins/Losses
    here is the point system associated with each

    Wins = 5 Points
    Losses = 2 Points

    Each week there will be two games selected as Proving Grounds Game Of The Week. This will mirror the actual games for the corresponding week in NCAA Football. Games will be chosen by Sabo. Those playing these games will receive bonus points. Games will be announced the Sunday of each week of the 2011-12 Season.

    Game of the Week Scoring
    Wins = 8
    Losses = 4

    So would we have more than one group playing the game of the week? Week is say lsu-Oregon game of the week. Would 3 groups get to play that game or just one group. If it's one how will that group get selected.

    But I'm liking this

    The Game of the Week is simply team selection based. If two users get together and want to play for a few extra points then one will select one team and the other selects the other. All of this based up to the coaches.

    So if im wanting to possibly earn 8 points for a win then i will get with an opponent who wants to do the same.

    Example -Game of the Week - Georgia vs. Boise State
    uagrad - Boise State
    sabo - Georgia

    or vise versa

    Scores and Results thread is posted up HERE

    Use this thread for scheduling as well. The other thread should just be for results.

    I should be able to log some games the next couple of days if anyone is interested in picking up their first win ;)
