    Please pick two conferences.

    If we use Big 12 I will add 2 schools to the conference so that conference has division and a conference championship.

    For the B1G I will switch to the 2014 division setup, and add Rutgers and Maryland.

    The poll closes in 2 days, or after we have a clear decision.

    LOL, probably not. I will likely add less substantial schools like BYU (Independent) and Houston (C-USA?)

    Since it's open prestige, I voted big 12 and big 10.

    Seems like BYU and Houston are the two teams that the majority of leagues are using for the Big XII. Fine by me, I don't care either way. But just for another option, and to possibly include more 5 and 6 stars since there are no restrictions, what about throwing A&M and Mizzou back to the XII??

    The true vote for conference #2 is:

    Big 12 with 5 votes (cadepetty247 G_T_G thebouncer24 CTfromDC ThaBayouChef)

    ACC with 3 votes (bravejaf boil16 ThaBayouChef)

    Pac 12 with 2 votes (ElectrifiedZombies BigJim11)

    I think the following people still need to vote:

    thebouncer24
    gnittio
    MiaFLSurf
    xGRIDIRONxGURUx

    There is one vote in the actual poll that will not count towards the final tally.

    I voted.

    ACC needs to be in this. Its the best, most balanced conference in NCAA.

    This may be a dealbreaker for me, haha - I really want to play as Miami or FSU

    I can't guarantee any teams even if we do choose the ACC. Team selection will be determined through a randomized drawing.

    No, what I think he means is that the order in which teams are selected will be random. That means even if we do pick acc, you are not guaranteed any of the teams you want since they could be taken ahead of your selection.

    Yea, I figured that.

    With that said, I think that we can all just list a team that we want to pick.

    I bet that we all can get the teams we want - theres only 12 of us, we can all play with who we want...

    If you want the two best teams in a conference I'm pretty sure someone else might want them. Lol. Random draft is really the only way to go. I think that's how all LGS are ran here anyway, right?

    It just so happens Im from Miami, and those are my teams. Shit, both my parents went to FSU, my wife to UM.

    Im just saying that most people here like certain teams because they cheer for them, etc. If no one else wants that team, I say let them have that team - I really dont care. If someone loves Michigan, and no one else loves them, they should have them. Ohio State, Miami, FSU, etc. Same thing.

    At The Pride PS3 league they all picked their teams this way - every one was happy.

    Now if 4 people want FSU, thats a different story. But youd be surprised how many people will be able to play with their own team just fine.

    Im bad enough that you could give me Alabama, and you could beat me with South Alabama.... trust me.

    Frankly, I don't have a "favorite team" and have no connection to any div 1 teams at all. I'd be alright with guys who truly love a certain team to get them. That's cool.

    The draft does seem the most fair way to go about this though.

    Yeah.. but, that being said, I probably wouldn't pick a team a guy wants if I am ahead of them in the draft.. but everyone is different.

    Exactly! Thats my point. I think as long as we are all cool guys, we can work out getting teams we want. If you love Texas - I wont take them. Even if Im "ahead" of you. Id take Texas Tech or some other team over it, I dont care. Im sure most of you dont love Miami/FSU like I do, so it should go both ways.

    Whatever, Im sure itll all work out
