if someone else wants to step up for the second league as a commish or co-commish then it wouldn't be so bad.  there are dudes who have run a league before from TWT I bet.

That's what I am saying. I can't commit to running two leagues, so if someone wanted to help with a 2nd, I would listen. But it may be a mute point now that TWT is back up.

So are we looking at the 2nd or 3rd week next month for the draft?

Earlier the better please.  I'm not going to be available Oct 20-23 and I DON"T want to hold up the draft.

7 schools yet to release their schedules.  I think that information has to be out first.

Draft starting 10/24 should allow us to get it done without any issues. Any thoughts?

Sound good to me.....willl we have any type of specified timeframe for making picks before an individual is passed over?

When you received confirmation from everyone playing did you get updated contact info?

I don't have everyone's contact info. It would be nice to have a good email and cell# to be able to contact people. It could be PM'd to me to assure the security of the info.

On the time frame for picks, what does everyone think?

 Once you are AWARE it is your pick I think 10 minutes should be adequate .
You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

Woah, that seems really fast.  Don't think it was near that fast last year.

That is pure insanity.

Who is going to be able to judge when someone is aware?  Just because a person is made aware doesn't make them aware.

3 hours is fair considering we have so much time.  Obviously if you can pick faster do it, but some(most) of us work during the day and have responsibilities in the evening.  Therefore, people won't be able to get on here and post the picks right away.

 I didn't want to get into defining ''aware time''-once you log on and announce you are ready to pick-how long could that take ?

if you know you're not going to be able to pick you can always name a proxy...I did a few times last year.  three hours is fine, but if it's that long why not four hours.  the worst case scenario is you have three guys in a row get jumped and it takes 12 hours.

Last year one draft took an amazing 3 days and the other 5 days which were both much faster than in 2009 when it was a full week.  While there needs to be some kind of upper limit, lets keep in mind that this is a relatively quick amount of time to do a 15 round draft with people all over the country.  No need to make it too short.  I would say 4 hours is probably pretty fair.  But can we keep the freaking out about someone not making their pick within 30 minutes of the last pick to a minimum.
