dont forget in the preseason you have to set it as "ready to advance" so you cant just do your three offseason tasks and log out, you have to check it as ready to advance

Man... you guys are conservative with your teams. USC, Texas, Florida, etc.... I picked UNC so I could build the program up and actually have a bit of a challenge. I don't know... to each his own I guess.

there is a lot of joy in taking a non top program and building them into a winner but when people are taking the top teams you have to be able to compete from year one. I am not exactly sure of the age/life situation profile of everyone in our league but I am guessing we have a few college guys...that means lots of free time to play the game. I have played 2 games in '10 so far so by the time we are going to start playing I will be far from skilled on the sticks that basically gives you little chance against a team like florida if you have a lesser team and less time on the game. I think it would be cool and maybe this could be a second league, if we had a league with restrictions either no major conference teams or no ranked teams or teams from florida, texas or cali...someway that you are taking wyoming or central michigan, that would make recruiting a lot more challenging and it woudl be interesting to see to what extent we could make it to the big bowl games. UNC, with Butch Davis is extremely talented, its not like you picked Idaho or something

Also everyone else post your phone numbers so we can communicate faster on when to play games and so i can text you everytime we advance. Thanks

North Carolina is ranked 16th so its definately not like they are a cellar dweller. And in last years dynasty I think I had 11th pick or something like that and picked Misery. They were far from top notch.

Oh, it's cool. UNC is a 4-star program, though, so I can still build them up. They've got talent, but they're not just stacked from top to bottom like Florida, Texas, USC, etc. In my other league, there's a few teams like North Texas and Buffalo. Just makes it more interesting, in my opinion.

Okay im ready to go
Posted on 7/24 4:59 PM | IP: Logged
Ill advance it in the morning and from there on out we will start moving quickly.

Hey, hawks34, I should have just gotten in this thing from the beginning - I'm missing it already. If anyone craps out, I'd be happy to step in with my old Wisconsin team.
Posted on 7/24 9:52 PM | IP: Logged
You can play, we have room I believe. Who do you want?
Posted on 7/25 9:11 AM | IP: Logged
What do you guys think of the new game? I was very good at '09 but so far i total suck at '10. Having to deal with a pass rush is messing with my head.
Posted on 7/25 10:20 AM | IP: Logged
Excellent. I ordered the game online last night, so I won't have it for about a week, but I'd like to take Wisconsin again. I'll let you know when I get it in the mail - my PS3 online name is Chihawker.

we are going to have some losses to the computer this year.
can we get those user games in tonight? I will be out of town at some point this week probably either wed or thursday I would think but I will let the group know.

I'm sure it's too late but it would have been nice if we could have made a super conference with USC and OSU in the same conference. It seems a bit unfair to have 3 ACC and SEC teams, 2 Big 12 teams and then give USC and OSU a default conference championship every year.

True... that's what happened in the first year of our dynasty last season. I went 14-0 in the SEC with Alabama, and ended up not playing in the BCS title game because USC went undefeated in its conference without playing any user vs. user games.

RAZKU hasn't logged on since 7/22 and we've got a game this week. This dynasty won't move very fast if people are only checking it once every five days.
Posted on 7/27 9:15 PM | IP: Logged
glad to see this league has resumed its blistering pace of last year...if we have not moved forward by tuesday just count me out. I have to be out of town thursday and I have no interest in a lingering league that never moves forward. it is the freaking 1st week guys and you have already lost interest or somehow could not cooridinate 45 minutes to play a game?

Who is Bama? username KUjhawk5. When do you want to play?
Posted on 7/28 12:00 AM | IP: Logged
lets get this thing moving already. Like cooljeff said its only week one and people are already dragging on forever. I know user vs user games can be hard to set up, but this is getting a little ridiculous.

RAZKU was out of town this past weekend as well. This upcoming weekend will be tough on several people as many KU students are moving in and out of apartments.

what about during the week?? collectively we have not completed a week in this dynasty (09 version or 10) since sometime in early May.
Posted on 7/28 12:14 PM | IP: Logged
Just an FYI but i'm (FSU) out of town Thursday evening - Sunday night for a wedding in New Orleans. If we advance before noon on Thursday I will get my recruiting and game in. Otherwise it will have to wait until Monday. Sorry guys.
Posted on 7/28 12:29 PM | IP: Logged
jsn, thanks for the notice...everyone can work around that. I will be out of town all day Thursday as well, though I could probably work in recruiting Thursday AM before I leave if we advance. Have not looked at the schedule but as long as it is not against a human and I have time to recruit I am sure usc will play fine simmed
Posted on 7/28 12:47 PM | IP: Logged
I think we should do an automatic 3 days no matter what. Like the day he advances it. Put a message saying it will advance at midnight on so and so date. For example if advanced today, it would say advanced 7/31 at midnight. If you complete it, awesome. if not, then you will be put on auto pilot and it will be simmed for you.
Posted on 7/28 1:50 PM | IP: Logged
i am cool with that as long as we have the flexibility to modify for bowl games and other special circumstances but for games vs. the computer that is more then fair.
right now, usc is better off being simmed then under my control. last night in my ku dynasty I had a 24 point lead on ISu at half and had to hang on for the win. part of that is me kind of sucking right now then there is also that dang sportsmanship warning if you pass or run the option when you are up big. basically stops you from playing...once you shut it down it is hard to turn it back on.

(RAZKU)- BMW, sorry I didn't get on tonight. It was on a date and it went way later than I thought, we just got home and there is no way I could play tonight because I have to work early in the morning. I'm down to play tomorrow night if possible. I know it isn't too late because I know another game is scheduled for tomorrow night as well in our league. Just let me know what time works well for you.
Posted on 7/28 10:22 PM | IP: Logged
That works. Any time tomorrow night should be fine.

There any chance you guys are gonna start a new one? If so I would like to join. Name is Brettn311.
Posted on 7/29 8:48 PM | IP: Logged
I think theres one spot left in the dynasty. We have yet to finish week one of the season so now is a great time to join.
I would suggest that we make it a rule that any newcomers to the dynasty must either pick a Pac 10 or Big 10 team to balance out the conferences.
Posted on 7/29 9:11 PM | IP: Logged
I think chihawker is getting in this week as wisconsin. so that helps out the big 10. Bsill if you wanted to take a team in the pac 10 other than USC that would be GREAT. If not though I say pick who you want. That all is assuming we still have room.
Posted on 7/30 2:24 AM | IP: Logged
Hey, guys. I got the game in the mail last night, so I'm ready to go. Would it be a huge deal if I had the commissioner sim my games for the first few weeks? I've never played on Heisman level before, and I know it took me a while to adjust to All-American on the last dynasty. I'm no threat to anyone's national title hopes - just ask the guys from last year.
I'll get in as Wisconsin and the PS3 name is Chihawker.
Posted on 7/30 11:52 AM | IP: Logged
i think it is pretty likely that we all might drop a game or two to the cpu this year. The only thing I woudl say Chili is that pre-season games are probably going to be your easiest so it might be best to work out the kinks against teams that will not be able to hang with you
Posted on 7/30 12:48 PM | IP: Logged
thats cool with me chihawker. Do whatever your comfortable with, just remember "practice makes perfect"
Posted on 7/30 2:28 PM | IP: Logged
Hey BMW you dropped out of the dynasty, but the commish says you want back in as UNC again. I play you this week, so do you want me to wait or when you planning on getting back in? I can play today or tonight anytime, but I cant play again till sunday cuz I will be out of town friday and saturday. If I havent heard from you by late this evening I am just going to play it against the computer so they can advance if they want to. My cell is 785-845-1368. I got unlimmited text.
Posted on 7/30 3:35 PM | IP: Logged
I can play tonight when I get home around 5 or 6. Sorry for the flake out. I get really competitive and that Ohio State game last night really pissed me off. Oh well... looking forward to building up UNC so I can start winning some of those close games vs. teams like Ohio State, USC, Florida, Texas, etc.
Posted on 7/30 4:15 PM | IP: Logged
thats cool. i'm the same way. just text me when u want to play

droll313 talking- I watched that game. While everyone here wants to win and be competitive. This is a Slant dynasty and we should all be men about this and play the game right. Im not directing this at you BMW, this is for everyone. I dont think we should be allowed restarts vs the computer either. If you lose to them, man up and lose to them. It very well could happen to any of us as the damn sportsmanship crap gets me every time and brings the computer back every time.
Posted on 8/1 10:26 AM | IP: Logged
So im finally moved in and just got my wireless hooked up. Im just starting my game against Vandy so hopefully the wireless works. I am upgrading my internet connection on Monday cause its not great now but hopefully we can keep this thing moving.
Posted on 8/1 5:02 PM | IP: Logged
Did someone lose to the computer and restart? That's bs if so. The commissioner can invalidate the game if so.
What is this sportsmanship thing you guys are talking about? Is that new this year?
I dont think it has happened yet this year. But it did last year. And the commish should throw out the results and just sim it himself.
The sportsmanship thing is some stupid points thing that says if your blowing a team out, you should run the ball every single play even if it is like 3 and 12. If you pass in the 4th quarter with a big lead you will get like -50 points. I always try and have good points but Ive been close to losing games because of it. SO now I try not to pay attention to it.
Posted on 8/2 10:12 AM | IP: Logged
What do you do with the points? So your saying beating the computer 112-14 wasn't a good idea?
