That gives us a full crew, though we just need a team from Ultimate Matt X so we can move ahead. I'll check out the rosters Franky suggested and update this post on whether we'll use them or not.

What teams do you guys recommend? The reason I haven't picked is because I typically like to use schools I've went to (like Ohio U) and I know I'll get blown away if I use them in a league.

Hey there Frisky,

Thanks again for putting this together. Any chance we can have strict rules on restarts? I've quit 2 dynasties already because other guys will lose to the computer and then restart their game before it finishes. That is so lame. The computer is tougher this year so if you can't handle a loss then why even play. Just wanted to see what you thought about that.

Seriously, that's ridiculous. I would be in favor of giving someone the boot after one disconnect against the CPU. It's not keep playing until you manage to scrap out a win against the computer, there shouldn't be a do over button.

It's one thing if you're playing against someone else online and there are bound to be the occasional connection issue, but there's absolutely no reason for it against the CPU.

Do you like any of the bigger schools? There are still plenty of teams available, like Florida, Oklahoma, Alabama, Penn State, Georgia, Virginia Tech, etc., that you have to choose from.

As for the restart issue: I don't think I'll institute a policy where there's no leniency on restarts because freezing, power outages, system issues, etc. can happen and I don't want to be that harsh, but I will not allow more than one restart for a game unless there's a legit excuse. I'll have to see if there's an option to limit them in the dynasty options, but I don't think there was one last year.

I appreciate that there are freak occurances. Power outages, the occasional system freeze. But if it happens more than once in a season I would be extremely suspicious about it.

I was in an online dynasty last year and managed to get through 4 seasons or so without ever having to restart against the computer.

How about I keep a list of everyone's number of restarts in the OP as a way to keep you guys honest so we know who has done it?

I've got the dynasty finally created and is ready to go. Just load up your games, go to career modes > online dynasty > view dynasty invites and you should see one for the dynasty right there. There might be two, unless it deleted the first, as I borked the first dynasty when I forgot to load the right rosters before setting everything up. That's all been corrected now.

We took over the SEC with both of their division allowing us a set-up. I moved the displaced teams to similar conferences where they would fit along with any other movements to fill holes made by some of the departed teams.

I'd like everyone to get on this weekend and set-up your redshirts, initial recruiting, and then your depth chart so I can get us to the first week by Monday. I'll be revamping the OP and fixing up the schedules, where needed. I'll post the changes I made to schedules when I finish that. Let's get this thing kicked off right. If there's a rivalry you'd like to keep going for your team, let me know and I'll try to work it in to your schedule.

I'm updating the rosters now. If I can still have Michigan and Notre Dame as rivals I would love it. You can let Penn State go.

Pre-Season Recap:

MattNY/Yanksfan was the only person that failed to accept his invite, so he's on the bubble for the first week of the season and needs to complete his activities so I see that he's actually going to be active in this dynasty. Just as a reminder, if you're not playing a game in a given week and don't want to do recruiting, the least you can do is sign on and select the "ready to advance" option in the dynasty headquarters so I know you're not ignoring the dynasty. It's at least 10 times easier to get to the dynasty this year, so there's no excuse to get spend five to ten minutes to get on and get the small amount of work you need to do done when you don't have a game to play.

I've gone through the schedules with a fine tooth comb and made them fit to start the season, so here are your non-conference schedules to see how they turned out. Because the conference has so many high caliber teams, most everyone's strength of schedule is A+, so BCS rankings should be a bit kinder on anyone that is in the running for the National Championship. Michigan State/Notre Dame was no possible for the reason that both are in the same conference, but different divisions, so that game will happen when it happens.

This is the first week of the newly-rebranded Supremely Excellent Conference (SEC), which is made up of some of the most exciting and talented teams in the country that wish to prove that they are better than everyone else by aiming for to play in the National Championship game at the end of the season.

The Pre-Season Heisman Watch features two players from the SEC: Tim Tebow of Florida in the #1 spot and Colt McCoy of Texas in spot #3. I will keep an eye on how the race progresses as the season starts to see who is most likely to take home the Heisman trophy for the 2009 season.

The Pre-Season All-NCAA All-American selections included a number of SEC players. The first team saw Florida take the lead with four players, LSU in second with two, and Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, South Florida, and USC all had one player each. Florida had the most players on the All-NCAA All-American 2nd Team list with two players whileLSU, USC, Texas, Michigan State, and Miami had one player each.

The All-SEC All-American selections provided some odd moments, as voters seemed to be confused about who was in the SEC since Georgia, South Carolina, and Vanderbilt players were selected for a few spots. The 1st Team was overwhelmingly filled with Florida players, nine of them to be exact, while LSU came in second with four players, and Georgia Tech and Rutgers tied for third with two players each. The 2nd Team saw a repeat with Florida in first again with seven selections, LSU came in second with four selections, and USC and Ohio State tied for third place with two selections each. Georgia had an embarassing ten players selected, ensuring that a petition will be created to have selections redone, but the red tape is sure to take several years to be cleared up so that nobody will care by then.

This first week of the season is always a special one, as it kicks off the long stretch of coverage regarding which teams will contend for the National Championships at year's end and eternal complaints about the BCS and why we need playoffs to truly settle the disputes. In the meantime, a few big games are scheduled for today. #7 Ohio State will be taking on #25 Kansas as one of the first ranked games of the year, though you will also see #10 Virginia Tech at #3 Texas later that night. Florida also hosts a game against Missouri at home to start off their campaign as rightful owners of the #1 ranking. A few rivalry games are also happening early this year, with Boston College at Notre Dame, USC at UCLA, and Michigan State at Michigan all taking place today.

The full schedule for this week:

Lee Rutgers (BigAT4) at NC StateKirk
Kirk Virginia at Miami (HeadShotKillaz) Lee
Ohio State (FriskyTanuki) at Kansas Lee Kirk
Kirk Missouri at Florida (Ultimate Matt X) Lee
Kirk Memphis at Georgia Tech (S3anAmI) Lee
Kirk Boston College at Notre Dame (Regian) Lee
Kirk Louisiana Tech at Iowa (MattNY) Lee
Lee USC (ShadyMarino) at UCLA Kirk
Kirk Michigan State (XXXplosive1) at Michigan Lee
Lee Kirk Virginia Tech at Texas (Frankysox)
Lee LSU (Doomtime) at Washington Kirk
South Florida (JustnCredible29) at Arizona State Lee Kirk

Good God, I won my game against ASU.....but that crowd had me rattled man. I was throwing ducks all over the field. If it wasn't for some key defensive stops, I would have lost. USF 30 ASU 12. Good Luck to everyone in the dynasty this year and I look forward to playing all of you guys!

My game was off during the Boston College matchup, but pulled off a squeaker. Beat 'em 21-19. I gotta man up and get my shit together.

Just for the record, I'm a casual NCAA player. I'm expecting to take a few bumps during this season. I wish everyone here the best of luck this season! Most importantly, have fun.

Well, had a pretty decent first game. Didn't have the greatest offensive showing, but a 100 yard interception return and a 99 yard kick return really helped. I hated running up the score on the computer, but I wanted a good showing for the BCS, though really I didn't do much once the game was under control anyway.

Can someone explain how I should handle recruiting? What are the advantages/disadvantages to offering scholarships now? What about untargeting prospects and targeting new ones? I mean I know realistically what some of this may mean, but I'm not sure how the game handles it.
