Here is a real short two-round draft league. We are drafting teams for next year's tournament, but you can't pick any teams that were in the tournament this past season. So, no Oshkosh, Whitman or NWU. Hopefully we'll get a good number of posters to participate since it's only two rounds.


1 point for making the tournament
2 points for a home win
3 points for a neutral-court win
4 points for a true road win

Pretty easy. Who's in?

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!

Team League
Hoops Fan
The Osprey

If you don't have time (or are too lazy) to participate in the Early Bird Draft Leagues, you can just pick 12 teams and/or 12 players instead. You don't have to play both leagues. If you do, keep you team list and player list in separate posts, please.

Similar to the Player One and Done League

I'm thinking:

8 teams - Friday, 1st weekend
8 teams - Saturday, 1st weekend

4 teams - Sweet 16
4 teams - Elite 8

1 team - Final Four
1 team - Final

I booked my hotel reservations for Salem Fort Wayne today. Am I the first?  ??? :P ::) ;D. It's only 5 1/2 hours away and I got a hotel with a pool, so wife and son will be happy.

Gauging the interest in a player league, basically the same thing as the Team League. We only use stats from CONFERENCE GAMES ONLY. Don't say I didn't tell you. We would again use the 44 conferences and EXCLUDE THE ACAA. So, 44 rounds. You need to use ONE and ONLY ONE player from EACH CONFERENCE. Players are a little different that teams, so we would take the TOP 40 scores of the 44 players. All rosters will be frozen ONCE THE RESPECTIVE CONFERENCE SEASON STARTS. So, your player in the SLIAC will be frozen once their conference season starts...which is at the end of November. Your player in the WIAC won't be frozen until their conference season starts at the beginning of January. Your player in the CCIW is frozen once the CONFERENCE SEASON STARTS. They have an odd number of teams, so even if, for example, Carthage has a "bye" for the 1st game day, your player is frozen anyway, even if they don't play a conference game. Got all that?

If we get enough posters to play, the draft won't start until after Labor Day.

My boredom has gotten the best of me. I'm thinking about starting a new TEAM league.

1. You can only draft ONE team from each conference.
Once NCF drafts NCC, she can't draft any other CCIW team.

2. You must draft one team from each qualifying conference.
There are 43 conferences with 7 or more teams, so there would be 43 rounds. If we get 8 posters to play, that number drops to 40 as the AEC, CSAC and the MASCAC all have just 7 conference members.

3. Rosters are frozen once the regular season starts.
No weekly rosters needed. Draft and then check back at the end of the season!

4. Only CONFERENCE GAME stats will count.

Any questions?

Who's in? Minimum of 6, maximum of 9. If we get 9, we lose another nine conferences that only have 8 teams.

Who's in? We'll start next weekend after the 4th of July.

Apparently this thing is real and aside from the D3 team taking on a UCLA alumni team, I checked out the pod that will be playing an hour away from me in Milwaukee. I really don't know if I'll make it down, but it would be interesting just to see how many people actually show up to watch. It does help that one of the teams is basically made up of Marquette alumni.

I'm in Big 10 country, so I checked out Big X's roster and it included Duncan Robinson and Wesleyan's Harry Rafferty.

I'm considering creating this league, but I'm debating a few things: If it's not going to be any easier than the rookie league, then it defeats the purpose of dumping that league. Also, whomever picks Greenville and Grinnell, are they basically going to win the league anyway? That's a huge advantage.

I may run it similar to the Mega Draft where I would just use games vs D3 opponents and you wouldn't have to post a weekly roster, making it a ghost league throughout the regular season where you don't have to worry about it and concentrate on the other leagues or whatever. This may encourage more to play, like Magicman, HOPEful, Hoops Fan etc, if they don't have to worry about weekly rosters etc. However, those who want to, they could still add and drop teams if they choose.

Scoring-wise would be like the regular season draft league. If there are 10-team rosters, take the top 200 of 250 scores (if you have teams that play against non D3 teams or don't play a 25-game schedule, you'll either fall short of 250 or you'll have to adjust your rosters).

Who would be interested? Any thoughts, questions or ideas? I probably wouldn't start the draft until May, if I decide to run this league.

OK, let's try this again. We have TWO ROUNDS where you draft a tournament team. THE TOTAL TEAM FANTASY SCORE will count. After you draft your two teams, nothing else needs to be done! Each round, I will add up the TOTAL TEAM score. No need to post a roster or anything. Probably the easiest league to join! Draft your favorite team, draft a team you think will go the furthest, draft a team you think will score the most points, even if they don't make the Final, you have a chance!

So basically, you draft John Carroll and Plattsburgh St. Watch em score and advance, that's it!


I'll get the draft order up immediately. We only have TWO ROUNDS, so we will have no problem finishing the draft before tomorrow's games.

I suppose I'll thank Ryan for the suggestion.  ;D :P

Pick-ems, fantasy leagues, etc. / All-American Pool
« on: November 11, 2017, 08:47:07 am »

The preseason All-American teams are out.  There are 5 teams of 5.

Here's the concept: Pick 10 players you think will make any of the 4 All-American teams and the Honorable Mention team. None of the players can be on any of the preseason teams. You will also pick a Rookie of the Year and a Player of the Year. Only the POTY can be picked from the preseason teams, but doesn't have to be.

Any of your players selected to the Honorable Mention team at the end of the year will get 1 point, 4th team will get 2, 3rd team will get 3, 2nd team will get 4 and any player getting 1st team All-American honors at the tend of the year will get 5 points each. If you correctly pick the POTY and/or the ROTY,  each are worth 10 points. Obviously more than one poster can have the same guy on their list. All because I take someone doesn't mean you can't have him on your team as well.

Do you think all the good players are taken? Of the 25 preseason All-Americans selected last year, only 10 made the list at the end of the year. Harvey and Blackledge made 1st team, Herink and Jack for 2nd team and Howell and Bonacum made 3rd team, all without getting preseason nods. Plenty of guys to choose from.

As usual for all leagues,  we need at least 6 participants. Questions, comments, complaints?

Pick-ems, fantasy leagues, etc. / Top 25 Pool
« on: November 03, 2017, 09:36:07 pm »
New pool!

Here's the idea. The preseason Top 25 has now been released. The object is to pick a team NOT in the preseason poll who received ANY votes, including Oswego St, who received just one vote. 

Then, throughout the season, we'll keep track if any of the teams get votes and sustain Top 25 status. At the end of the season, we'll have 2 winners. The poster who picked the team who garnered the most votes during the season and the team who finished the highest in the final poll (the one after the tourney is complete).   

Hopefully we can even get some of those "experts" to play since all you have to do is pick a team before the season starts and that's all you have to do!
