View Full Version : NCAA Online Dynasty: Fantasy Draft?


Shane P. Hallam
08-05-2009, 02:48 PM
I am inviting 7 users to do another NCAA Online Dynasty with me (PM already sent). Basically, this one will be a bit more slow than the one we are doing with 12 teams, and we will take our time and have fun with it, no rush to get games done. The focus will be twofold:

1. Have a fantasy draft so we have powerhouse esque teams to start with. Half the fun will be the draft (done on the Fantasy Forum of NFLDC). It will take awhile, but will be worth it. You will have to balance talent with youth and however you want to build your team. I will have 6 choices of roster requirements you can use. More details once I get 8 people to do this.

2. Recruiting. We will all pick 1 Star prestige teams So, despite having a powerhouse roster, recruiting will still be fairly difficult. This will make for a higher focus on recruiting after a few years rather than just who is the best "player."



Essentially, just PM me back with a yay or nay, no pressure. If you are going to get busy, that is okay, just let me know.

Also, you can pick your team if you want to. Maybe list two or three just in case. Eligible teams are:

-Arkansas State
-Army
-Eastern Michigan
-Idaho
-Kent State
-Middle Tenn State
-New Mexico State
-North Texas
-UL Monroe
-San Diego State
-San Jose State
-SMU
-UL Lafayette
-Temple
-Tulane
-UAB
-Utah State
-West Michigan
-West Kentucky
-FIU


All pitches and stuff will transfer over.

We will be replacing the 8 teams in the Big East so we can get a BCS bid.

Shoot any questions over to me. Once again, this will be relaxed. Long draft, no time limit, but it should be fun.


Participants:

crites09 - UL Layfette

critesy - Utah State

Todd Bertuzzi - Tulane

Forenci - San Diego State

JBond - Army

djp - SMU

ATL - UAB

Looks like DG and Scotty may be out. So, I'll search for some new peeps. I know ATL wants in. I do want to try for some diversity from the other dynasty, so we will see.

Hmm. Slim pickings here, haha. I guess I will take UAB to honor Roddy, although I think we may be slightly better off with 2 star teams that way all our recruits are max 2 stars, and we can pick up a couple 3's and maybe even a 4 or two.

So Bond, were doing a fantasy draft with 8 1-star teams. Are all the other schools going to have the original players still on them or we doing fantasy draft for those as well?

Shane P. Hallam
08-07-2009, 10:49 AM
I'm going try and edit all the other schools as well so that the players we take are no longer on their team. I'll figure out a way to do it well.

Can you only do fantasy drafts online?

Shane P. Hallam
08-07-2009, 10:53 AM
No, we will be doing them on NFLDC via the Fantasy Forum, then I will recreate teams with TeamBuilder (or just edit rosters, but the former is likely easier for me)

You could just check with some of the people who wanted in with the NCAA Dynasty and didn't. Maybe just go with 7 though, it's uneven but all it means is another game or so vs. the CPU, draft will go a bit quicker, etc.

Shane P. Hallam
08-08-2009, 08:22 AM
True, I could pump up an 8th team in the Big East, basically give them some talent after we are done drafting and see.

Probably for the best. That way we can get the draft rolling on a weekend so we should see some solid progress early.

Eh, was hoping to pick a little lower. I've got a good idea of what I want to do though. And jeez, that's a ton of players to pick.

How does that work exactly? You can just pick any player via teambuilder? I still havent tried this yet.

Oh it will. It's just a matter if we finish by the end of 2009.

Oh it will. It's just a matter if we finish by the end of 2009.

Maybe when we starting getting done with getting starters and adding a bit of depth we can just give JBond a big list of guys and he can go through and give us the best available guy on the list at each of our picks or something.

Yeah, probably the best option

That draft would honest to god take 2 months probably.

Also, difficulty level? Heisman or AA with jacked up sliders?

Heisman should be good. Even though it's cheap, the teams should be ******* loaded to the point where it won't matter much.

ATL you're up.

ATLDirtyBirds
08-08-2009, 07:07 PM
Alright, I just need a minute. I was hoping you were going Devine or someone else. I wanted Pryor. :(


Edit: This is why I wanted to pick a bit lower, because I had to get one of Griffin/Pyror because they fit what I like to do so well. Although it was probably a bit early, I had to lock up my Soph. QB. And even though I wanted Pryor, he is only 1 point behind him ratings wise, with better speed.

Todd Bertuzzi
08-08-2009, 07:13 PM

Haha just a little revenge ;)

ATLDirtyBirds

I had Pryor all set to be picked, because I know you are WVU in the other Dynasty, so I figured he has to be going with Devine, haha. It's cool. Griffin is going to be better anyway.

So, use this as the draft discussion thread to eliminate clutter? Anyway, I saw crites on before. Not sure why he didn't pick.

Shane P. Hallam

I don't care that much where we discuss. Maybe he didn't know it started/was going on in the Fantasy Section.

Haha, at first I thought it might be an overdraft. I wanted Dunlap, but he got taken by DJP right before me. Seeing as most of the time I user control the DE, I figured drafting one of the highest OVR ones was probably a wise move even though he's a senior.

Twas a good pick. Kindle is such BS since he basically is a linebacker playing defensive end with elite pass rush and block shedding skills. Good thing for us, it's only one year :)

Also, JBond, what kind of OOC schedules are we looking at? Probably doesn't matter since we are stealing most of the best 476 players in the country, lol.

Shane P. Hallam
08-10-2009, 05:12 AM
I'm not sure right now, I will think about it.

djp
08-10-2009, 05:19 AM
I really think we should set up a date and time on IRC so we can knock out 30 or 40 of these rounds at a time or something. This will seriously take 3 or 4 weeks to complete otherwise.

Maybe 3-5 minute clock or something like that if we end up doing a chunk of this on IRC. That would be kinda cool, instant reaction and that sorta stuff!

Shane P. Hallam
08-10-2009, 05:19 AM
If you can organize it, go for it.

djp
08-10-2009, 05:27 AM
When can everyone be on to do this? Or can you even?

I'm free pretty much anytime this week, not on the weekend except for Sunday night.

What about Sunday at 7:30 CST? That would let us take a little more time for the first 15 or so rounds so people can think them through a little bit. Hard to get everyone on for a weekday as well.

if you can't let me know what time(s) would work for you.

I hate your Dwyer picture JBond!

djp
08-10-2009, 05:33 AM
Also, JBond, a suggestion for you... if you're not doing this already, I'd have some custom rosters built for our dynasty and editing the guys that we take down to 60 overall or something so we don't have duplicates and you don't have to do them all at once.

Todd Bertuzzi
08-10-2009, 05:44 AM
This week isn't good for me, but I could do it on the weekend at anytime. Sunday works as long as we don't run too late since I have an early start on Monday. Next week I'm good any day after 6.

Are you just moving players from the other teams or creating new players with the same ratings and names? I'm talking about editing the players from their actual teams that we select onto our teams.

I don't think it is possible to move players from one team to another, or I would.

My thought is just recreate the players. Names and ratings basically.

I don't think it is possible to move players from one team to another, or I would.

Yeah, but doesn't that leave the players still intact on their original team? I'm saying that there will be doubles of the players, one on our team, and one on the originals.

Shane P. Hallam
08-10-2009, 06:34 AM
It does. That will be the more time consuming thing for me. Changing those names and stats slightly. I likely won't knock those guys down too much, just take the main stats for them and hit them with it, and change names to...something :P

Well, you don't have to do all the effort. We could edit all the guys that we take out one at a time and just upload them when we're done, go 1-by-1. You don't deserve to have to edit 476 names. That's just cruel!

Shane P. Hallam
08-10-2009, 06:39 AM
Only issue is it all has to be done on the same roster file. So, if each of us edit our 68 guys, there is no way to combine it. I'll get it done. Probably one day a week or so I'll dedicate to getting this done.

Well, how the guys who first named the rosters did it, was they just passed it along. IE. You would start with your roster file. Upload it. I'd download it, edit my guys out, pass it along to someone else, and so on and so forth. So we'd all eventually be on the same roster file.

So would Saturday be cool with everyone?

And what about the cap I mentioned? 40 rounds? Past that, I put the top overall at each position in a hate (random.org,) and assign accordingly? I can even just put the top juniors and below at each position in a hate and go from there.

I say if Saturday works and people can put a couple hours in, just go until we finish for the night. (Don't have a defined stop number, just go until people have to leave.) Then rejudge from there. Hopefully we'd be able to crack out most of it, as the picks really shouldn't take much longer than a couple minutes just to check what's left and what you've already filled.

You guys can always leave a small big board with the person picking behind you, that way it doesn't slow things down too much. I've done it with DJP and he's made 2 picks for me so it works. And if it's a small board and you are worried about the guy picking behind you taking that player, he probably wasn't making it to your next pick anyway.

crites09

Just picked.

94 speed sophomore CB? 89 overall? Was not expecting Peterson to go but TJ Bryant is hardly a bad consolation prize.

Nice pick ATL, he was the other guy I was debating over. So good. 99 hit power and block shedding. Sick.

Oh for sure. I think he's one of the faster LBers as well. I've hated to go with Seniors early, but atleast the 2 I've picked up are just ungodly good and probably the best at their positions. (Kindle and now Spikes)

I'll see what I can do. Like I said, I really wouldn't expect to be back any later than 9 EST and more than likely be back around 8:15 ish, so I could be there. I don't want to hold things up though. Maybe if you could push back the start time an hour I might be able to make it? But if it's for the good, I will do it. Let's keep the picks coming though, that will make it easier on me for sure.

Seriously. It's getting much harder now. However, Will Hill is an athletic freak who just lacks AWR. Not really a problem when I control him. He's just been a machine just about every time I've played with Florida. So, I've gotten the core of guys that generally I do very well with from the other dynasty back. :)

I mean, if you could push it back a little bit so I have a chance, that be great. Like I said though, I really don't want to have this held up/have people waiting forever on me. But a little push back would be fantastic. Plus, if we can keep this rolling for a few days, it becomes less and less of an issue..
