  1. @FFWally What school would you like to run?
  2. Hello Everyone! I am a huge college football fan and I know many of you are too. This year, Yahoo Fantasy has started a fantasy football league for the college ranks. I had an idea for a design concept that we could all be apart of. Similarly to the way we rebuilt the World Cup this year, I propose that we form a fantasy football league to play out on Yahoo. We would design every element of the team that the AD desired (uniforms, stadiums, schedule posters, etc). We would also draft and play out an actually fantasy football season. The teams would be D1 colleges/universities that exist but do not have football teams (ex. Gonzaga, Wichita State)! We would simply "First come first serve" schools to designers/owners. Develop a conference alignment based off of how many AD's we get and go from there. We would need to get moving on this if we'd like to make it for the start of the season! If you are interested and would be committed to this project, please respond with the school you'd like to represent. If and when we get to 10 schools I'll set a deadline for additional schools to join. Then we will set a date for the draft and let the fun begin. If this is not the place for this type of post please let me know where it should be. I figured this was similar to the World Cup from a few months ago. For a list of schools without football check here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NCAA_Division_I_non-football_programs I will begin by selecting Boston University.

    Creamer Concept World Cup 2018 - FINALS VOTING

    I can't decide on what the group of death is this year. I also can't believe how many countries use an eagle as their mascot. I mean I knew..but didn't at the same time. Great work, everybody. Group A Saudi Arabia Russia Egypt Uruguay Group B Spain Morocco Portugal Iran Group C Australia Denmark France Honduras Group D Argentina Iceland Croatia Nigeria Group E Serbia Switzerland Brazil Costa Rica Group F Germany Mexico Sweden South Korea Group G Panama Tunisia United States England Group H My Group

    Thoughts, if we end up having missing teams could we move the fifth teams into the groups with 3? I would feel bad for the people in those bloated groups. Just an idea.

    Ask A Moderator

    Hello, I was not able to find the answer to this questions in the rule link that was provided at the top of this thread but I had a question on contests on the boards (i.e. the current World Cup thread). I think that this is an awesome idea and seeming a lot of fun for everyone involved. I assume that I do not have enough posts to start a contest. I also figured that contests were a MOD organized thing. I know that is frowned upon to ask other people for designs. For example, I have this great idea for a team for a league I will now accept designs, etc. It seems that a contest such as the World Cup falls under a different category. My question is if we have an idea for a fun contest are we allowed to start it? Is there a place that I can get approval before doing so? I didn't want to do something out of turn so I figured I'd ask here. Thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction. PS For the record the idea that I have is a World Cup type tournament for states in the USA (STATE WARS).

    What is the word on Fonts? Should we be creating custom fonts or are we allowed to use existing? Thanks.
  7. Thanks! The next stop will be heading out west. I'll post either today or tomorrow.

    Agreed! Have to wait until tomorrow I think but I think we have 32 designers. Should be good!

    I'm in. This is awesome!
  10. To be honest, the way that we chose some of the cities is we looked for city names that we thought were cool. Then we imagine our reality that has built up those cities into full fledged college towns. As for ideas. I guess we will be open to both. We definitely would like an idea of a location but if you have ideas that you have in mind for mascots we'd take those too.
  11. The next conference is the FRONTIER CONFERENCE. This FC is the youngest of the four major conferences in the country. The reason is because when we first outlined the conferences we had 6 not 4. The original plan was to have a "BIG XII" type conference called the GPAC (Great Plains Athletic Conference) and a "B1G" type conference called the GLAC (Great Lakes Athletic Conference). The GPAC was to include teams from Texas, Oklahoma and north up into Nebraska, the Dakotas and Minnesota. The GLAC was to go from New York to Illinois. We then decided that that many schools may be unreasonable as we start. So the Frontier Conference was born. On a personal note, I am a Big Ten fan through and through. Due to family DNA, I am a big time Wisconsin fan. Therefore it was fun reimagining new schools in that region of the country. There are going to be expansion schools in the states that are notably be absent in this set of schools. The expansion schools will be included in the fifth set of this series so do not worry. Welcome to the Frontier Conference. TRINITY BLACK KNIGHTS (NICK) First up are the Trinity Black Knights. Their look obviously takes inspiration from the Army Black Knights, Colorado Buffaloes and New Orleans Saints. Black and Gold has always been one of my favorites and had to use it here for one of the most stories schools in the nation. Hailing from Aurora, Indiana, this catholic school has been atop the national rankings both years of competition. Their success has been aided by the consistency of QB JT Barrett and RB Jordan Chunn and Derrius Guice. The Knights are well stocked going forward as they have loaded up on young freshmen talent. JESUIT FIGHTING SAINTS (MIKE) Early on we decided that we would both make "Notre Dame" type teams in the Frontier Conference. We thought it would be a great rivalry in the heartland of the country. The Jesuit-Trinity rivalry is fierce albeit one sided. Trinity has dominated the two meetings thus far. Jesuit is found in downtown Chicago. MINNESOTA STATE HARFANGS (NICK) Yes, I know there is a Minnesota State in Minnetonka. The 'Fangs are a tough defensive teams. They have ranked at the top of the country on defense both seasons so far. They were more successful their first year when they rode the legs of Dalvin Cook. While purple is their main color, they often can be seen wearing variations of their uniforms including Black and White. Their fans, like Penn State are known for their intimidating WHITE OUTS. Minnesota State is found in Murdock, Minnesota. In ice hockey they have a fierce rivalry with Northern Minnesota. ROSENBLATT CARDINALS (MIKE) A baseball powerhouse, duh, the Cardinals are an average football program from Nebraska. It is tough to come up with a unique look for a mascot that is so wildly used. The school logo is the letter R acting as a Cardinal. UPPER PENINSULA WOLFPACK (NICK) The reigning champions of the Frontier, the WolfPack never seem to be the predictive powerhouse. But after two seasons they are one of the most consistent teams in the country. They play in Marquette, Michigan. SIOUX FALLS STAMPEDE (MIKE) Yes, Mike now knows that there is a junior hockey team named the Sioux Falls Stampede. Something he was not aware at their inception. The Stampede originally won the Leonard Fournette sweepstakes in the inaugural signing day (the Draft). IOWA A&M GOLDEN WAVE (NICK) The Wave are named for the never ending fields of corn in the state of Iowa. They typically wear Gold at home in duds that look similar to NDSU. Here they are wearing their Green Uniforms. Expansion locations to expect in the frontier: Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, WISCONSIN, Missouri. We are also looking for ideas of a location for the twelfth member of the Frontier Conference. Expansion locations to expect in the Super South Conference: South Florida, Kentucky, Arkansas. We are also looking for ideas of a location for the twelfth member of the Super South Conference.
  12. That's good to know. That is not one of my teams but I will definitely pass that on to my friend, Mike.
  13. @CinnamonRoll21 Thanks, I know. Like I said for the question about Georgia State we chose to not worry about that. We wanted the names to sound like major college football programs. So in a couple of instances we chose to ignore smaller programs such as ASU or GSU. It doesn't happen much but it happened.
  14. @Wideright I forgot to update the town for ASU. Meridian is where MMU is. ASU is just outside of Birmingham.
