RE: Season 7 Sign-Ups!!
Take a look around and see how we do things. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask, or PM or whatever.

We'll get the draft started within a month so stick around and talk shit or lurk, we're easy. But I'll have more info in between now and then you'll need to know so check us out every once in a while at the least.

Awesome thanks, I'll make sure to lurk around before the draft starts. I can also be reached on scout, username is uncy13. Looks like this should be fun.

This is the best kept secret there is in college hoops. We think we've got something really good here and I'm just now getting around to advertising it on message boards after 6 years.

And it's AWESOME!! to be in the ACC btw. We were pretty stoked with BigEast basketball but this is better. It really is. We loved our games with St. John's and Georgetown, etc. but we're much more of an ACC school at heart.

Awesome to have you guys aboard! We love our league and don't be shy, we're thick skinned and love our smack talk as much as the next guy. We also have the ACC board below to talk about all things ACC and feel free to join us in talking the weeks football/basketball games as well.

Where did you guys come from?

I'm a lurker on the scout network, and saw Harv's post on the Duke board. No doubt, I'll be around. Unfortunately we don't get to play you in football this year, well actually fortunately for us considering our team, and coaching look like complete crap.

RE: Season 7 Sign-Ups!!
By my count, we have our twelve. Now we go to work on league two. And if I'm not mistaken we have 4 noobs in the league! That's amazing. Just want to say again that we're happy to have you guys and I think you'll enjoy yourselves. We welcome you to join us in other parts of the forum as well. Take a look around. We like to get to know our opposing coaches and we can all handle some good honest ribbing. I keep repeating myself but it would be nice to have some fresh views on certain things and we'll have a Week 3 football running dialogue on the games starting soon.

RE: Season 7 Sign-Ups!!
I believe that makes 13. But we've got at least 7 new members that haven't signed up for the league yet...

Thunder and Lightning
Buckets
SWOLE
flyingmonkey36
FrozenGlacier
Garrett_TD23
Mr502

Plus Needabuzz and Mdubb22 have yet to sign up.

I have a feeling we're going to be turning some people away this year so the sooner you guys take the plunge the better.

I'm probably only going to keep sign-ups open for another week and then I'm out of town from the 19th to the 21st. When I get back I'll start getting everything ready for the draft, which I expect to start around the end of September/early October. Then the season is tentatively scheduled to begin on Monday the 10th of November. Maybe the 17th but probably the 10th. Of course the preseason polls, lineups, waivers etc. threads will be open before then.

RE: Season 7 Sign-Ups!!
So how is the duel draft going to work? If league A and league B are both drafting at the same time, there's going to be a lot of checking the other draft to see which players should be picked up. I guess it's the same way with most other fantasy leagues, but it can really kill "sleeper picks" when someone in the other draft picks him up and puts him on everyone's radar.

edit: To add to that, there's been this unwritten rule that you don't talk about players that haven't been drafted yet (unless it's Mike Marra). There's going to be a lot of talk on whichever draft is running ahead, which will undoubtedly have an effect on the later draft.

Thoughts?

RE: Season 7 Sign-Ups!!
Very good point, jrye. I hasn't thought of that at all. Even more of a reason for a live draft, IMO. So you have to do your research in advance and with a running 5 minute clock there isn't much time to check another thread and check that player out, etc. I can't think of any other way to fix that problem. But yeah, your odds of sneaking someone in are drastically limited. Especially for those that don't do much of their own research/do it when it's their pick.

I'd like to propose an ACC sub-forum to encourage discussion from fans of the other ACC schools. Would be especially cool if we can start open smack-talk threads for each match-up.

I meant to ask this last time the split league discussion started. Is it possible to create a "premium" member list that restricts certain forums a la the other UofL boards? Obviously payment wouldn't be the restriction, but your partricipation in League A/B would preclude you from viewing the forum(s) for the other league.

I agree that we need to find a way to keep certain topics from League A hidden from the eyes of League B. This includes the waiver wire threads, league rosters, etc. We probably should have established some rules for general discussion versus league discussion.

Lindy probably has the answer here. Basically like you can have a moderator only forum. I don't think it's necessary to keep it like that throughout the season however. I'd like to be able to look at the other league just to see how it's going.

Are there still openings left. I'm a disappointed Hokie fan (after today's ECU debacle) stuck down in the heart of Tobacco Road. 25 minutes from NCSU (yea!), Duke (bleah), and UNC (boo). Since the Hokies aren't usually still in the mix come February, an ACC fantasy basketball league could really add a little excitement when watching the Hokies try to avoid double digit losses.

Thanks. I like the refinement.

I guess both the Cards and the Hokies are falling back to "The others receiving votes" after today's losses.

Immediately after the OSU game a friend asked me what I thought we would be ranked and my response was, "too high". We're just not there yet.

Rough weekend for the ACC. At least Georgia Tech managed to pull themselves together at the last minute.
