when they select the drop down value and 'add to cart' it will be in the order. 
it should show up in your dashboard>orders> 'testing' (name of product right now), attribute: *The Mighty and Excellent Tennessee Volunteers(the team selected). 

(*could be exchanged for the 'loathsome alabama crimson tide', or 'slimy lizards of gainsville', or... maybe your more conventional naming convention is better..... )

if you want years, that may be a trick... we may have to enter each, such as 95Huskers, 96Huskers, ect...

Thanks.

We've got to get rid of some apostrophes on the page links and get the page links to connect to the proper pages still.


I'm good with it being functional before it gets pretty.  I'll add some updated photos as well.  I need to figure out how to get videos done, as they won't email from my phone.

I'm wanting to post videos on the site before I release it to the world.  But you, yourself can go ahead, if you want.

Website is live, already very busy with the orders that have come in.  Very exciting!!!
In case anyone was interested or curious, here are the teams that people have ordered so far (by order):

69 Penn St
69 Tennessee
69 Texas
69 WV
71 Alabama
71 ASU
71 Georgia
71 UM
71 Nebraska
71 OU
72 Auburn
72 OSU
73 ND
76 Pitt
---------------------
18 Alabama
18 Clemson
18 OSU
18 UM
--------------------
08 BYU
16 Boise St
17 Washington
91 Washington
2018 Pac 12 (all 12 teams)
-----------------------------------------
18 Wisconsin
18 Miami
18 ND
18 LSU
------------------------
17 Wisconsin
18 Alabama
18 Clemson
18 OU



I'm very happy to see a couple of repeats (18 Bama, 18 Clemson) - as those won't require any real work to produce a 2nd time.  At some point, many of the orders should be repeats, and it'll be both easier on me and can be sent out more quickly.

It was a pretty good experience.    My harshest commentary (grasping for a criticism) would be the process for selecting the four teams.

While the prompts were good, and there was good instruction for selecting the teams.  I did need to 'wipe out' or delete the text in that instruction box in order to type in my four selections.   I could see typos occurring, or some confusion or mix up on your end if the entries are not succinct.   An ideal workflow would likely have a drop box, or more explicit entry boxes  (Team Name)   and then a second for (Year).  I also would prefer (personal taste) to have that team selection prompt occur, one step prior to getting to the cart.  For a heartbeat, I thought, wtf, did I just order a set with 4 random team selections.  I trusted the process, as you guys have been showing us the beta all along.

I'm not the world's biggest fan of PayPal but I do understand all of the reasons why a merchant chooses it for payment processing. (again, just a personal taste preference).  I used it, didn't I?

All told, really good effort.  I'm excited about this game.
