Picking a College Team

Postby LeNordique » Sat Oct 31, 2020 3:47 am

Getting ready to install the Heisman mod and Madden NCAA mods and...I need a team to get behind.

The problem is I'm from a state with no FBS team (Maine), went to a college with no program (George Washington), and have no strong family links to any program. I'm trying to pick my own team and I'm down to four, but with caveats:

1) Washington Huskies: big fan of Seattle, love Washington state, but Pac12 seems meh and the unis don't do it for me (Yes, this matters somehow. No, I can't explain it)

2) Navy: Campus and the town of Annapolis is beautiful, lived close by (DC) for a long time, love the history, but feels weird or even gross to root for them without having served in the Navy, never mind not having attended the Naval Academy

3) Boston College: Regionally the closest to home, but I HATE their hockey program and New England just doesn't care about them (and we're a region that loves its teams - even the Revolution might get more support than the Eagles)

4) Wisconsin: Best friend's team, I enjoy beer and sausage, but I also hate their hockey program and I have no other connections to Wisconsin.

I know this is a question with absolutely no relevance for anyone else besides me, but thanks for weighing in...these conversations tend to be fun at least with people making their case for their team.

If anyone needs advice for following college hockey let me know (Basically anyone besides Boston University. Go Bears.)

I play four different franchises that I created.....
ACC VS SEC
B10 VS P12
AAC VS MWC
CUSA VS MAC

The B12, independents, Sunbelt, etc are mixed in.....
I coach 2 teams in each franchise one from each conference
They are.....
Texas Longhorns
North Carolina Tarheels
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Kansas State Wildcats
Houston Cougars
Colorado State Rams
UTSA Roadrunners
Central Michigan Chippewas

These are my favorite franchises and sometimes I play other franchises but always go back to them

If you are interested in these.... let me know I have been considering posting them

Nice! That would be really helpful if you could share the franchise files...I do something similar for the college hockey mod for NHL 09 and was planning on doing something similar here, but the intricacies of scheduling all the teams given rivalries and whatnot was daunting
