Maybe it'll end when someone chooses UMPI.   ;D

Sorry I didn't know this was taking place at the same time as the other draft and I didn't have my phone and never spotted the messages from the Greek.  I'll have a pick up there momentarily.

Might as well take my Cardinals, since all the other teams I would have taken have been chosen. The first 4 or 5 picks in this league really have an advantage since it's an entire team and not just 1 player. I think we should have had an 8 player game of H-O-R-S-E to determine the draft positions.  ;D I just made a 24 footer from the top of the key with my left hand. You guys have to match that or get an H.     

ROUND 1
1. WUPHF - Nebraska Wesleyan
2. FC Grizzlies - UW-Oshkosh
3. NCF - Augie

Just a question, is this the only team draft we're doing or will there be a November and January edition of this, too (before the obvious one in Feb/March)?

I must confess I'm a lefty. And I knew you of all people would ask me that question. ;D

That will probably depend on how bored the Greek gets or how many leagues he wants to run. My guess is there will be, at the most, one more when the field is officially announced next year. Then again, not having a draft at that time may make this one a bit more fair, because you have to guess which teams will make the Dance and that will help alleviate, over the 8 rounds, the edge the first 4 -6 players get by drafting the favorites. If you have Nebraska Wesleyan, Augie, or MIT and several of your other picks fail to make the tournament, then the guys at the bottom of the draft may have more teams dancing and can overcome that bias.

 It's all a part of scouting opponents.  ;)

I came to basketball late - a summer camp during middle school. At the end of every day we had to do drills (dribbling, layups, etc) - some were right handed and some left.  Whoever won the drill got to sit out the rest.  After the first day, I did nothing but work on my left hand skills and subsequently won most of the left hand dribbling and layup drills the rest of the week.  My secret weapon playing was always that me (a right handed shooter) crosses over to the left with the ball.  You can fake someone out three or four times before they catch on defensively.

I had old man game even from middle school.
