Exclamation Season 8 Sign-Ups!!
Welcome to Season 8!

Earlybird sign-ups are now open!
I'm giving all former players(and anybody else) first dibs to get in this year and if anyone you know would be interested then invite them as well. The maximum cutoff this year is 24 teams, but we may need to close it sooner than that for balancing. The sooner you get in the better. I'll be sending emails to all past coaches shortly.

If any new players are interested, take a look around the forums for examples of how we've done things in the past and feel free to ask me any questions you may have. It's easy, very fun, and if you love college basketball you'll get hooked.



Now on to business...
In this thread, all participants need to provide a team name, and a playing card of choice(for the draft lottery).
All participants may optionally provide an arena name, and up to two team colors(a primary and secondary).
If you'd like to receive an email in future seasons when we open up sign-ups you can PM me an email address.


The Dud Fuglys will return to magnificent Fugly Hall wearing their classic Maroon and White jerseys. I'll take the 9 of clubs this year.


We've still got around a month until the draft so all coaches please stick around between now and then to keep up with league news.

Sadly, digglers dozen are no more. Infamous for spontaneous late trades that don't work out and creating enough controversy to get certain people banned, it's time to step away from the name and create a new image. Guys, give it up for...

Also guys...we have a college football thread going on downstairs if you all want to chime in. What did you think about the game vs USC, Tar Heels? I watched most but wasn't engaged. I thought UNC would win.

I'll start posting in it but that game was disgusting. UNC should have blown them out, nevermind just win. Marquise Williams completely killed UNC with his awful decision making but I'm mindblown by how dumb Larry Fedora is. He is a joke of a head coach. He has Hood, an NFL quality RB yet in the red zone, he chose not to use him. Marquise Williams has a history of shit decision making yet Fedora was still calling for him to throw it inside the 10. The defense, and kicking game are vastly improved but this game is just a prime example of why UNC will never win more than 8 games under Fedora.

I know the NBA is despised around these parts, but an NBA league would be a nice way to curb my addiction for fantasy basketball slowly instead of going cold turkey at the end of February.

RE: Season 8 Sign-Ups!!
Let's keep this thread on point. We're up to 12 teams and I've just sent a mass email out to most past coaches and all the people that signed up last year but didn't get in in time. I'll give them a couple days and then make another run through the big boards if we don't have enough.

Still waiting on Dean and a handful from last year(Mike F, justcates, Ironsam). They better hurry.

I thought the Divisional setup was a blast. I still would rather do two different conferences though.

Well it would be two 12-team divisions which wouldn't be too bad, but yeah, 24 is the absolute cap. I'd rather have 20 too.
