Pick-ems, fantasy leagues, etc. / Top 25 Draft League
« on: Yesterday at 04:23:28 pm »
So, while we're doing the Conference Champions League Draft, you can start studying for this league. Basically, we'll draft teams you think will be in the Top 25 and ORV throughout the year and we'll keep track of how many points you can accumulate each week. There were nearly 100 teams that gained votes last year in the poll, so there are plenty of teams to choose from. So, if you drafted RMC last year, you would've received 8612 points from them. Depending on how many posters participate, I'm looking at about 10 rounds. I probably won't start this draft until September.

**Check the Top 25 Pool page to see the season's results!

To avoid complete off-season boredom, I've created another draft league. Simple rules. We're drafting players for next season's NCAA tournament, but you CANNOT use any players on teams from the previous tournament. So, no players from RMC, Williams, CNU etc. In addition, aside from the brief FA period after the draft, adds and drops WILL NOT be allowed later in the year. So, you probably don't want to draft that senior who might come back. You won't be able to replace him...or any other player who does not appear on next season's rosters. Below is the list of teams from last season's tournament that you CANNOT USE. Happy hunting!

I'll start the draft at the beginning of May.

Keene St
La Crosse
MA Dartmouth
Mount Union
Oswego St
Pomona Pitzer
PS Harrisburg
St. John's
St. Joseph CT
Trinity TX
Wash & Jeff
Wash U
Westfield St
Wheaton IL

Even though there are regular season games this week and even next week, some conferences start their postseason tournaments this week...even tonight (NAC).

All you have to do is pick 12 players (obviously, not in the UAA since they don't have a postseason conference tournament) and get points for all the games they play in. That's it. Please list the name, team and conference they are in. Thanks.

Regular season games do not count, only conference tournament games.  There really is no deadline as all tournaments start on various days. You just don't get points for games already played.

Tourney time is coming up. In fact, some conferences like the NESCAC start next weekend (18th?). I assume the tracker will be a thing again? I couldn't find a link to previous year's trackers.

We have a Pick 12 player tournament league, may as well have a team league too.

Pick 12 teams.

Deadline is Sunday night

Pick 12 players. No draft. No waiting. No excuses not to play. Tell your friends.


I deleted the One and Done League as I enjoy the draft aspect of leagues.

Here, we have a 5 round weekly draft. We draft 5 players to each play one game throughout the week. So, you'll need to include who you are drafting, team they play on, opponent and date. This is key because if NCF drafts Ryan Turell from Yeshiva to play on Saturday, Osprey can also draft Turell to play on Tuesday and ronk can draft him to play on Thursday. Got all that?

If your player misses your game due to injury, postponement/cancellation of game, you can replace him with an unused player for the current week only. If you are unable to find a replacement in the current week, you lose that player.

EDIT: you can use a player that's already selected, but for a different game day, like the Turell example.

There are no adds or drops after you've drafted your player and the next poster has selected their player...except for the circumstances described above.

This is not a One and Done League, so you can draft the same player every week if you want.

The 1st week's draft order will be random and then we'll rotate the order, moving down the draft order.

We draft for the following week. We'll start next week and we will be drafting for games Monday November 29 through  Sunday December 5.

I will need confirmation of your participation so I know if we have enough players (a simple, "I'm in" will suffice). We'll need a minimum of 5 participants.

Um. I guess I deleted the previous league.

So, object is to pick 10 players NOT named to any of the preseason AA teams.

You get 10 players not named to the preseason AA. Then you get an additional player for POTY (this player can already be named to the AA team, but doesn't have to) and then a ROTY.

The only exception is your pick for National Player of the Year. ONLY that player CAN be selected from the preseason list. However, if you pick a player for POTY not on the preseason AA list, you basically gain a player...although POTY rarely doesn't come from the AA list.

So if you decide to pick a player for POTY not on the AA list, pick 10 players and then an 11th for POTY.

All-Region 3rd and 4th teams - 1 pt
AR 2nd team - 2 pts
AR 1st team - 3 pts

AR POTY - 4 pts
AR ROTY - 4 pts

All-America HM - 5 pts
AA 4th team - 6 pts
AA 3rd team - 7 pts
AA 2nd team - 8 pts
AA 1st team - 9 pts

National POTY - 10 pts
National ROTY - 10 pts

DEADLINE IS TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 9 (Giving you a full week)

You may drop and add players after this date ONLY IF HE ISN'T ON A ROSTER. The last day to do this is Sunday, November 21 as some teams don't play until the week starting Monday, November 15.

I thought it would be a good idea to post the polls for each conference to give us an idea of how things will go this season, at least in the eyes of the coaches/S.I.D.s.

Multi-Regional Topics / Mount Rushmore of D3 Coaches
« on: April 25, 2020, 06:26:17 pm »
Recent conversations on this with Amherst's Hixon retiring recently...

I figured I'd centralize the conversation.

I dint think anyone - and especially Hixon - is saying he’s the GOAT of D3 coaches, Dave.   But he’s certainly on Mt. Rushmore!

So who's on Mt. Rushmore? We talk total wins, but should we also talk winning %? I mean, Brett Favre was at the top for a long time for TD passes, but also was at the top (still?) in interceptions? Do you take someone else with a better TD:INT ratio or the guy with the most of something...sometimes simply because of longevity.

Pick-ems, fantasy leagues, etc. / Conference Champions Draft League
« on: April 02, 2020, 08:30:29 am »
The object of this league is to draft teams you think will win the regular season conference championship of their respective league.

If you draft UW-Stout to win the WIAC and they do, you'll receive 5 points. If they finish 2nd, you'll get 3 points and if they end up 3rd, you'll receive 1 point. If they don't finish in the Top 3, you'll get a golf clap.

After the draft, nothing needs to be done. I'll tally up the league standings at the end of the regular season. Standings will be based on conference tournament seeds. Conference tie-breakers will determine standings as well.

I'm guessing about 25-30 rounds with about 200 teams in contention for the top 3 spots in each conference.  We will not be using the ACAA. Be sure to check the conference changes board to make sure you are picking the right team for the right conference next season. A lot of changes.

Draft will probably start next week. As usual, we'll try to get at least 6 participants.

Here's an easy regular season league even the most casual poster could participate in. Whether you're too lazy or too busy, this might fit the bill.

We have a one-round draft each week and use those players for the rest of the year. No adds or drops. So for example, NCF drafts Connor Raridon for the 1st week. Now she has Raridon for the rest of the season. For the 2nd week, she drafts Grant Robinson. Now she has both Raridon and Robinson for the rest of the season. You add one player each week and get that player's stats for the rest of the season. Pretty simple. We'll probably take the top 225 scoring games.

Other than drafting one player a week, there is no  in-season maintenance. No adds or drops, no posting a schedule etc. All D3 games are scored. The draft would probably be conducted on Sunday for the following week.

Note: Although we draft one player a week, it's not a weekly scoring league (like the one and done league). So, you can still draft a player who doesn't play opening week or over the holidays because you still get all the player's games going forward.

The season isn't too far away and most of us don't have the time to look up what teams are favored in each conference. I thought it would be a good idea to centralize all the polls.

So far we have eight teams. We'll probably do 12 rounds. Draft starts Monday, so you still have time to get your name in the hat!
