USER SCHEDULES I dont think that letting everyone freelance on their schedule without a system will be good for the dynasty. Noknee can attest to a user who was USC, who did not want Noknee's Notre Dame team on his schedule, simple so he could win out and increase his title hopes and recruiting position. I saw in another dynasty the national champ came in the season highly rated like #8 , but never played a team ranked higher than 16. I was in a dynasty that created incredible, meaningful match ups all season. The last three games, on as many as 5 users schedules, ended up being playoff games for the BCS title. Its not hard, its a simple system based on balance and elimination. It is the best way i have seen to get the right teams to the BCS game. Worst case scenario you would have 3 undefeated user teams, but since conf's are playing each other the users would still decide who is the stronger conf based on head to head games. Here is an example of the schedule system. The preseason rankings were posted and this was used to get preseason position for the schedule. #1 play other confs #2 #2 play other conf #1 #3 play other conf#3 #4 play other conf #4 The highest preseason rated user in conf is in the #1 spot. They would play the other conf'#2 #2 teams would play the #1's like above #3 teams would play the other #3 #4 teams play the other #4 Have all teams play the 12 highest rated non user conf member (CPU)teams. using the preseason ranks it would be the highest rated user team vs the highest rated cpu team not in a user conf. You do this to stop all the undefeated cpu teams taking all the BCS positions with out winning on the field. The CPU can still win the games and from early reports the CPU will win more games this year than it did last year anyway.example 2 - Oklahoma@ Alabama 3 - Texas@Ohio st 4 - USC@ND 9 - Oklahoma State@Va ech 14 - Boise State@Ole Mis 15 - Cal@FSU 17 - BYU@Iowa 19 - TCU@WVU 21 - Nebraska@Illin 24 - Utah@South Carolina 25 - Kansas@Clemson Next highest (t) Oregon ST@Tenn Preseason rank and schedule, The first game is a CPU team the next are home and away user games.; Big10: gibby289- Ohio State(7)-------- Texas(3),@FSU(20), Ole Miss(11), IAHAWKS757- Iowa(22)-------- BYU(17), @Va tech(10), Bama(6) noknee- Notre Dame-------- --- USC(3), @Tenn, WVU(23) hoodlum10- Illinois---------- Nebraska(21), @Clemson, South Ca ACC: K24Lyfe- Virginia Tech(10)-------- OK ST(9), @Ole Miss(11), Iowa(22) cp3bestpg- Florida State(20)-------- Cal(15), @bama(6), Ohio St(7) BLACKJ414- West Virginia(23)-------- TCU(19), @Noter Dame, Tenn RubTheRock- Clemson---------- Kansas(25), @South Carolina, Illinois SEC: smace767- Alabama(6)--------- Okl(2), @Iowa(22), FSU(20) jjlloyd- Ole Miss(11)--------- Boise St(14), @Ohio St(7), Va Tech(10) Sublime321- Tennessee--------- Oregon St, @WVU(23), Noter Dame CamHenDerSon- South Carolina--------- Utah(24), @Ilinois, Clemson Noter Dame and Illi might flip flop. I did flip flop south carolina and Tenn. They can be edited but they still have good schedules. All matchups are home and home series. flipping the road and home games. After year 2, you use preseason ranks for year 3, and recreate the match ups. The system creates fair and balanced schedule and with one more game to schedule. Each team will have one out of Conf road game they can schedule a user, a traditional rival, a top 5 team, or whoever they want, without having an all cupcake schedule. No user games should be scheduled week one. The big user games could be at any time after week one, including last game of the season, big matchups for BCS position. Not trying to take over or anything. I know that the seasons you play with a schedule like this, add to the pressure and excitement of the season. Just look at everyone's schedule.
