Team Sets
« on: August 13, 2019, 12:14:41 AM »
In addition to all top 10 final poll teams each year since 1971, and all teams since 2005, we offer:

Conference Seasons, NY6 Teams in a given season, BCS Bowl participants in a given year, etc.  What would you like to see/discuss?

In addition to the teams listed on our site, we can also offer these four from 1969:
Texas
Penn State
Tennessee
West Virginia



Please don't hesitate to ask for unlisted squads from the past.  If we can do it, we will do it!

All-American teams, all-conference teams, etc are something we're going to explore in the future.  Please post here if you have a specific question or request.

It's not released to the world just yet.

Have you considered selling entire conferences?  It would be nice to be able to select the Conference team sets of your choice for a given year, rather than having to order the teams individually.

Another thought would be to offer all teams that were on a certain team’s schedule for a given year.  For example, 2019 Ohio State, along with each team they played throughout the regular season, conference championship game and any bowl game opponent(s).

Or even a "Classic Bowl Games" series with some of the best bowl games in NCAA history, like the Vince Young National Championship game

We previously had 8-14 team conference sets.  However, pre-2005, stats can be hard to come by for those poorer programs from the past.  We offer top 10 teams from yesteryear because we're confident we can find those stats.  We realized we may have been offering something we couldn't 100% produce, which we don't want to do.
.
It's the same idea for the single-season full schedule idea.  Great idea.  We could easily do it for any team/season since 2005, but cannot do so for every random non-conference directional team from 1983.  
.
Over time, we may be able to offer such things, but we're still in our infancy here, having just gone live in September.  We're focused on releasing 2019 season teams for sale.  Working backwards in time will be our focus in late spring/summer.

This is doable by simply ordering those 2 teams, if available.  We had offered New Year's 6 team sets, and will again in the future.  But we've scaled back the offerings until we're able to catch up on the high volume of orders coming in.
.
Thank you both, so much, for posting here and continue to check back!

Another neat idea for team sets would be to have “Decade National Champions,” in which each national champion from each year per decade were included.  You could have a 1970’s, 1980’s, 1990’s, 2000’s, and 2010’s sets.  Each sold separately.  Some decades would have more teams included due to split national champions.  I still haven’t even played the game yet, (still waiting on my game to be shipped), but I’m pretty sure I’m going to love this game and I would definitely purchase those suggested team sets!

Yeah, we have all sorts of potential offerings in the future:
all-time teams for conferences or individual schools, all-decade teams, etc.
.
We sporadically conduct polls on our facebook page, some of which have to do with these ideas.
