So, what we are talking about is using the Wrestlestat league. Bryce is able to get one set up for us. It looks to be a fantasy football type format. The only downside is, each league is limited to 10 teams.

Here is who we have right now:

1, Brew
2. Acguns
3. Akin
4. Jerry Callo
5. Yak
6. Gage
7. Trusty
8. Dutch134
9. Regulator
10. Lost
11. Bryce

Obviously, with a max of 10, one would team would be out. If we go with last in, we would be looking at Trusty or Regulator. The information on the leagues is in the College board, if you have any specific questions.
Imagine the good that could be done, if people were less worried about their differences, and more worried about doing good for everyone.

I really have enjoyed being part of this league - I never felt anything so competitive where there was no money involved.  Thanks for the opportunity to play but I  am not really interested in this new format - I do not like the heads up aspect and the fact that there is no tourney piece - so if it helps get the numbers down to 10 and you guys decide to go this way, I will bow out.

if you all want to continue on with this format that is fine. I am going to pass thank you. I fell off last season because I was never on this board. I was either on D2wrestlestat for information for my writing or track. I just didn't swing through. I don't want to be a dead weight this year.

for those of you looking for the league on wrestestat -

just a few thoughts, as I always enjoyed this league and had a rooting interest throughout the season, and would hate to see there be no league this year. I understand the workload the league created on Akin and others who helped and can see the need to relieve that.  I also understand the feeling that having a league where the conference tourneys and even the national tournament are meaningless and to even in play.   sooooooo

we could use wrestle stats until the conference tourneys and nationals and then revert back to the old way of doing it by hand, which would mean just a couple of weeks of adding up results,
or
stay with the old format and assign everyone a single team to address. every week.  I am sure everyone would also check their own and thus would safeguard any mistakes that were made. that way Akin and or Bryce or whomever would not be inundated with such a workload. 

anyway, just a couple thoughts to try to keep the league going as it was a fun time and always something I looked forward to.

Ok, I don't want to leave anyone out. So I am more than willing to continue the league here as we have always done it, with as many of you as are wanting to get it done. I will also get into the other league, just to see how that experience is. Bryce, I hate to see you drop out of this one, as you have always been a huge asset for me, but I understand stuff getting in the way. Just so you know you always have a spot here.

That being said, how does Friday 11/1 sound for starting the draft? I have a small procedure scheduled at 9am that morning, so maybe get started around 1pm Central? Will that work for everyone? I can get started on the Big Board now.

Works for me - I think Yak has a good idea about having us keep our own and each other's scores - that could take a lot of work off you.

Too bad we couldn't figure out a way to use the wrestlestat for drafting and waivers - and run out own league otherwise.

FYI - there are going to be tournaments and dual meets that start the weekend of 11/1 that we will miss - seems like that is pretty much "opening weekend" if there is such a thing.

Any way we could start drafting this Friday?

I would be glad to help set stuff up but I have no idea how to do that.
