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 hes the GOAT of D3 coaches, Dave.   But hes 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.

Now that this year's tournament has prematurely ended, it's time to start thinking about next year's  tournament, assuming the Coronavirus doesn't  end civilization as we know it.

All kidding aside, you know the drill...


Probably one of the easiest leagues to join. Hope we can get a good number of posters.

I'm a little late to the show, but you can start prepping for the NCAAs.with this league.

I realize a few tournaments have already started and a couple start tonight, but there's still plenty to choose from.

Pick 12 players who have made their conference tournaments. You get points from every game they play until their team is eliminated. Pretty simple.

Whomever has the most points wins, even if some teams have played more games than others...I guess that's part of the strategy.

Good luck. Hope we can get six or more posters to join despite the late notice.

Here's the link to the conference tournaments to help you out.

Don't have time for a draft? Don't want to play the One and Done? After the brackets are released, just pick 12 players and/or 12 teams (you don't have to play both leagues, but why not?) and use those players throughout the tournament. No need to do anything else after you make your initial picks.

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.

Multi-Regional Topics / Conference Preseason Polls
« on: October 24, 2019, 10:46:59 am »
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.

We'll draft 6 players a week, using the top 10 player scores for each team. Draft order will be determined by the previous week's standings. This will satisfy the posters who like the draft aspect and also the posters who like the One and Done League (kind of like that league as you're basically picking players on the weekly matchups).

As usual, we'll need at least 6 to play. I'm cutting down on the leagues his year.

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!

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.
