    Yea, they're easy to learn how to do. My first year in a random league on ESPN, I came in second in the league. Most of it is luck, but there is some skill needed in predicting things. You'll get the hang of it.

    Now, a shift from pro to college.

    Rankings came out! Oklahoma is #1, texas is no where to be found, auburn is #23 or #22. SEC takes 8 spots of the top 25, big east takes 1. Opinions?

    Being a Big East fan, I'm somewhat disappointed by only having a single team, but I remember that most haven't had their current head coach for 3 years. I can't complain about the SEC taking to many spots since the Big East dominated the NCAAB (men) rankings last year, but I'm happy Kentucky has to play most of them...perhaps they won't make a bowl game this year, hopefully...>

    And quite a few people in public leagues don't update it after half the season. It's not a hard concept if you're already familiar with several of the more technical parts of football (namely stats).

    My thoughts on the college football rankings..... I'm from Big 10 country, so woo-hoo I guess. Newbie Nebraska comes in at Number 10, and Wisconsin is right behind at Number 11. Michigan State at 17 suprised me, thought they'd be lower, and Ohio State would be higher than 18 if they didn't have that whole scandal thing. Hometown team Penn State is 27th. Should've made the top 25 IMO.

    My opinions is that preseason rankings don't matter since teams haven't even played a single real game yet. This isn't an attack on you but I really start paying attention to these things in the middle of the season.

    I caught kind of fast my first year, came in 5th on an acquaintance's Yahoo league. Its just predicting how well a player will do week to week, for me at least.

    I just realized something: TCU and Boise State are in the same conference this year! Enjoy it for the one year that it lasts, America.

    TCU will be in the Big East next year.

    What web site is the SPPf fantasy football league on? If it's ESPN I guess I'll join.

    Most likely. It could be on NFL.com but I doubt it.

    If there's any other open spots, may I join in?

    Hopefully Davis, who has been pretty quiet lately, likes him.

    We need someone to be the leader/president/potentate/prime minister of it, at least someone to be the league owner

    I would prefer ESPN, but if we do it on NFL or Yahoo it's all right with me.

    So should we elect a league owner? Also should we vote for ESPN/NFL/Yahoo, or discuss it?

    Jacory Harris, as well as 7 other teammates, have been declared ineligible by Miami. No word on how many games they're going to be suspended for.

    Aw, heck. I've been considering throwing my name in, so I might as well.

    My vote is yahoo. I've already downloaded the yahoo fantasy football 2011 app for my ipod touch, so that would be more convienient for me. I've never tried any other site, but I'm willing to try another.

    As far as I can tell, we now have 7 people. I've had 8 in a league before and everyone got in the postseason.

    Geez. All the big-name programs are getting busted now. USC, Ohio State, Miami. The real question is, who's next? I'm going to say a school from the SEC, because the recruting down there is vicious.

    If it counts, there's an arrest warrant for LSU's QB and another of their players for a fight that the QB was involved in.
