    Trifecta Season 1 Kick-Off

    We are pretty close on sliders, so my plan is to start the dynasty tomorrow evening with us kicking off on Monday night.

    Get ready boys, especially those of you with week 1 user games (as I recall there are a couple).

    The Trifecta is live! Everyone has an invite (except big slick-send me a friend request dude!), get in, pick your team and do your preseason stuff. I will need to finalize the schedules and then we will be good to go.

    I wouldn't have it any other way though, you took the easy way out Dru...lol

    I'll take my lumps early and build this sucker up from the ground up, I love starting at the ground floor.

    Besides, this gives me at least a three season underdog role, and I love that.

    I don't know if you'll ever escape the underdog role with this game. Recruiting is fuggin hard bro.

    Yep, I'm enjoying it though for sure.

    As long as I'm having a good time I don't care if I win or lose, this is my escape from coaching real football so there's NO pressure in this compared to that lol

    Slick - your invite is out.

    Here are some rules changes based on testing. I'll finalize the description thread this week.

    Recruiting limits - None, aside from the rule that you can't offer scholarships that would put you over 70 players total.

    Players leaving - People will be able to sway early draft entrants, the final details TBD by Perry and I during the season.

    Gameplanning - Everything is game to start, but please make sure you are using things situationally (that means don't turn DL to aggressive all game). We will make adjustments as the need arises.

    Run/Pass Commit - See Gameplanning.

    Formation Substitutions - Like the depth chart, you need to make these prior to your games. Your opponent should not have to wait for you to do them prior to kickoff. Also, use common sense when using formation subs (ie - don't put WR's at TE).

    Playbooks - In season 1 you will have one opportunity to change your offensive and/or defensive playbook, which must be done by week 7 if you are going to change. Starting with season 2, you must pick a playbook and stick with it for the entire year, regardless of injuries. The lesson - choose wisely.

    Sorry Jman, you will have to wait. I can't finalize the schedules until everyone has joined. Likely kickoff for week 1 is Monday evening around 10pm EST.

    I have two situations as far as formation subs go that I'd like to clarify.

    a. Is putting your backup rb as the fb in a shotgun 2 back set ok?

    b. How about moving your fb to the 2nd TE position in a 2 tight end set? In my case it's going to be strong to one side, not te left and te right.

    Both of those formation subs are fine Brian.

    Recchem and BC are the only one's left.....

    I'm starting to get impatient like J-Man.... I have a lot of positions to address recruiting wise to set Clemson up for the future.... Recruiting is going to be a marathon....

    Recchem-can you (or anyone that can access the dynasty wire site today) post the default schedule for Iowa? I won't be able to get the schedules in tonight if I can't get this figured out today.
