No 5-star or 6-star schools (See: NCAA13 School Ratings)
League start date: Tentatively Monday, July 23rd

I am giving everyone the ok to sign contracts with 6-star schools, after Season II is completed, if you get the offer.

Also, I'm going to warn owners: Be careful which schools you run the score up on. I don't mind if someone goes out and drubs Akron 68-3. If I see someone beating a 5-6 star school and scoring 60+ points, I will start turning up the sliders for the CPU. Also, if I see the XBox losing every time by large margins, I will do the same. I want to make this league as realistic as possible, while keeping it competitive.

I'm probably going to go with four 2-tier conferences. Conferences will have 2-4 users, depending on where schools rank. Conferences will possibly change from season to season.

No Custom Playbooks
No Online Sim option

(More info to come)

Please post with your team of request to join the league. I will post those who make the cut, so to speak.

I will add slider info and conference structure to the topic post once we get settled.

Leroy -hmmmm which team..... I will see whats available

My Top 4 teams are:

Tennessee
Georgia Tech
Air Force
Pitt

It doesn't matter. I am going to try and make the option work.

I'm in with Kansas, unless I change my mind.

Yes, I'm a glutton for punishment.

I shall take Michigan State

I think my top teams are cincinnati or texas a&m

Northwestern.

I'm ready to come back after my year off. Barely played NCAA or Madden last year.

I'm thinking Iowa, North Carolina or Northwestern, but let me try them out over the next few days.

FTFY

7 of 12 owners already, nice. BTW, I'm assuming it's still capped at 12, I wonder if they changed that, considering you can have 32 owners at once with Madden.

I'm in. I won't have the game until Thursday, as it was $45 on amazon and I went with the savings over the instant gratification.

I'll pick my team when I get the game!

I got release date delivery through amazon. what the heck?

**goes back to installing**

Or you could stop at a store, buy it, play it. When the amazon copy shows up, return the amazon copy to the store you bought it from. Bingo Bango, savings earned.

I think my life has settled down enough that I can make another run at this. I'll stick with a school that I'm a big fan of the coach... The University of Georgia.

How 'bout them 'Dogs!!

I'm in Arizona State or UCLA

Im in...I plan on using WVU, but I need to wait to get the game to make my decision.

I haven't been following the game, so I didn't pre-order. Plus, I have Prime, but didn't feel like the $3.99 was worth it, especially since I have tickets to the Triple A All-Star game tonight and wouldn't be able to play anyway.

This last year has been great, but rough on my gaming habit. I'm getting married in Spetember, so I can't buy every game that comes out, and I like spending time with my fiancé, so I rarely have time to play games anymore. Looking forward to the league, though.

Congrats! I know the feeling about less gaming time, just wait until kids come into the equation! As much as my gaming time has been deminished, my wife and daughter are well worth it!

I won't force you to change teams, but I will try to recommend leaning away from the 5-star schools, since everyone else has. You are more than welcome to stick with Georgia though. As commissioner, I will make it work

We have one spot left. I saw SpyNavy was interested in the other thread, so I'm going to hold that spot for him for now. Anyone else will be put on a waiting list. Congrats, we once again have a full league!

Cincinnati, mark it down.

I'll take Texas A&M.

Can't go wrong with agriculture and mining.

Edit: my copy also arrived today. Amazon prime hint...order two things at the same time, and pay for overnight on one. They put the game in the box with the other item.

And I will confirm Rutgers again. It will be nice to see some new teams this go around.

I'll be doing some extensive slider research to see if I can find that happy medium. Not liking what I'm seeing in the option game. A lot of weird pitches. Also, safeties are dumb as sh*t. Also,players don't tackle sometimes. They will literally run away from a guy.

OKay, if everyone else is going away from 5-star schools I will as well. Which one is Shaq picking? I'm interested in one of his 3, but will wait for him to pick.

I don't think Shaq joined us this year. But Shag is. :p

I really like Clemson this year and the freshman WR at Mizzou is a beast, but I will go with my favorite err fail team UCLA.

Try using slow or very slow game speed, as I've seen that helps the AI on options.

I'm thinking of boosting OL blocking, at least pass blocking.

I think South Carolina is a 4 Star - I'll take that. If not I'll choose another.

I put it down to slow with 40 player threshold to help balance the speed. Looks like I need to lower it as I had a DT chase down Denard Robinson laterally at the line of scrimmage.

I can't get my highlights to upload which is genius on EA's part so the proof can't get out there as easy.

Everyone be very afraid. Spy takes no prisoners...

Shag texted me a little while ago, and has committed to Georgia Tech. Waiting now on Coolbeans and Firesloth for final team confirmation. Also, this is your final boarding call for any school changes.

Please start requesting your HvH matchups. I will take all into consideration, some will be done purely by ranking.

Nah, NCAA always gives me fits. Madden has always been my bread and butter although I am liking some of what I see in NCAA this year. I see you playing every night :), send me an invite and we will scrimmage. I have been dabbling online with FSU - love the All Black Uniforms. By the way the VT Hokies defense is BRUTAL. I got dismantled last night by a guy playing stock Cover 2 man - I couldnt get separation at all. FRUSTRATING!

Kush,

Will Custom PB's be ok? I have gone in and tailored a couple and taken out extra plays that I'll never use because I hate spending precious seconds trying to find a play. I did the same with my Defensive PB... Let me know so I can adjust accordingly.

Thanks,
- Spy

I think I may take you up on a school change. I've decided to jump back into an SMU dynasty, as Zach Line is one of my favorite college players right now. But I would like to see them moved into another major conference, rather than sit in the C-USA all alone. They are now a 3* school.
