I liked divisions. Not interested in playing in any other conference.

+1

Another conference being folded in just doesn't interest me. I have no desire to start watching Big Ten, Big XII, or whatever other conference of basketball we would consider to expand the league.

I DO think having a seperate league for fans of those conferences would be cool, though, knowing that come tourney time we would be playing other conference teams and further move the league to a NCAA D&D. Just PLEASE never open up the player pools to cross conferences.

Agreed on the conferences. The later rounds becoming challenging with one conference is what makes this fun.

RE: Season 8 Sign-Ups!!
I also agree with keeping it like last year. ACC only and two divisions.

Also if we end up doing rivals like years past, I would like to designate HotHot as my rival. Was looking at the records and the Dragons are 5-0-1. Sorry bro

RE: Season 8 Sign-Ups!!
That doesn't sound like much of a rivalry.

For my rival, I'd like to call out the Fuglys and Ballers. Obviously two of the top programs in league history and we've played one another to near draws in both series (Empire lead the Fugs 5-4 & lead the Ballers 3-2-1).

While we're on the topic, is there any way in Hades I've played the Hothot 7 times already? I didn't think he had been in the league long enough for me to meet up with him that often. If so, I'm surprised and ashamed to learn that they have my number (2-4-1, which is my only losing record in any series with more than one all-time meeting).

Finally, in the theme of Little Bro, the Empire lead the Wheats 6-1. Scoreboard son!

RE: Season 8 Sign-Ups!!
We'll need to find a way to make sure the divisions are split evenly in terms of experience and past performance. I think last year was pretty square, but now everyone has a year under their belt. How should we split em'?

RE: Season 8 Sign-Ups!!
My two cents... Series A with the top returning finishers from 2014 going head-to-head. Series B is the bottom half of returnees and any noobs. In this scenario, though, you'd need to have two seperate playoffs and elevate the top performers from Series B while relegating the dreks in the A league.

One thing I'm still not enamored with is going head-to-head and having top players cancelled out because the teams share starters. I think relegation should be enough incentive to continue playing, not give away stars for peanuts, and continue competing all the way through season's end. Does the same on the flip side in the hopes of promotion. Basically I think a lot of the current arguments are naturally resolved if the competitive owners know they're running the risk of playing a perma-NIT if they toss in the towel on even one season.

Yes, I'm going to keep making this recommendation until it gains support.

RE: Season 8 Sign-Ups!!
I don't mind the idea of a relegation-type set up with the divisions, but why would there need to be two different tournaments? I don't want half the league to not have a shot at a title before the season even starts.

You can still win a title in B League, it would just be the Serie B title. You can fly that banner if you want to, but I'll probably make fun of you for it. Smile

Yeah, hah I don't blame you. Winless in 6 tries, it's like I'm trying to lose to you. Fugs have my number as well but at least I've beaten them once or twice.

RE: Season 8 Sign-Ups!!
I kind of understand what Chris is trying to say with the two leagues needing two tournaments. If the A series has the better CEBE players then there will be no issues with one team having all the good players BUT...

The B league will. If 1 person in the B league has a good idea of how to draft then it seems like they would have a better shot at scooping up the great players available. Then if you have A and B league players going at it in the same tournament, in theory the B league drafter will win.

Make sense?

RE: Season 8 Sign-Ups!!
We've got 14. We either get two more for two 8-team divisions again, or we play one big 14-team league this year. I've got to close Sign-Ups soon.

I never did run back through the McBoards so if anyone wants to post on them, feel free.

Tarheel, what's up with your buddy?

14 CEBE teams drafting from 15 ACC teams would be great imo. I actually prefer that over 2 divisions, but I'm probably in the minority.

RE: Season 8 Sign-Ups!!
Man, there would be some DREGS in the startling lineups with a 14-team league. And I'd definitely want to avoid being at the tail end of the first round in such a scenario... not sure there will be more than 8 or 9 stat-stuffing studs in the ACC this year. From there to pick 40, I'm guessing all the talent will be about the same.

In 2014 we had 10 CEBE teams drafting from 10 AAC teams, so it wouldn't be as painful as that

Yeah 14 team league is no bueno. I don't know if my buddy is coming or not, he seems really busy lately.

I would prefer a setup like last year. It would be a lot more fun if you don't have to start the backup center for Wake Forest. Two Divisions seemed to work well.

2 leagues with 7 teams each would work and just have 1 team from each league play each other every week. Kinda like how baseball has at least 1 interleague series everyday now that the AL and NL have 15 teams each. One big league will really dilute teams big time.

I think there's a difference in people learning how to draft and the folks at the tail-end of this theoretical 14-team league having OPTIONS to draft. Seriously, name me 14 stud-level fantasy players in the ACC next season.

I easily see 14 solid first rounders, of course I'm not going to name them for you. In basketball, a 50-49 win is just as valuable as a 70-69 win. I prefer a single 14 team league over two 7 team divisions because I like digging into team's rotations to draft a good team. I'm fine either way. Anxious to get another season going, especially after the sloppy start to football.

Not that I know of. I guess DHC's bro Ironsam is out? DHC said last night that he's out but that may have just been drunk talk. I haven't heard anything from Virginia Tech fan justcates who played last year.

I just activated jhmoss1812, who has an FSU email.

Welcome aboard, Professor. Feel free to analyze and communicate what exactly is wrong with each of us for enjoying this league so much.

As per the first post of this thread, we need from you 1) a team name, 2) a playing card of your choice(for the draft lottery), and you can optionally provide an arena name and your team colors(primary and secondary).

There is nothing wrong with any of you. I am so glad I found a league like this

1) Hebrew Hammer
2) Ace of Spades (prettiest card in the deck)
3) Thomas Jefferson's House of Destruction
4) Blue and Orange of course

Also, just throwing this out there, but have you guys thought about making this a money league? It doesn't have to be a lot of money but it would make things more interesting. I'm fine with joining a free league but just thought I'd put a feeler out there.

Looks like at least 7 coaches would be interested but like I said in that thread, it would be independent of the league itself. Almost a side-bet really.

Thanks a lot! I just finished my PhD in social psychology. I teach General Psych, Social Psych, Personality Psych, Research Methods and Close Relationships. Glad to be here and also really glad that UVA and Louisville are rivals and get to play each other every year in football and at least twice in basketball
