I love college football and I’m a big Fantasy Football guy, so when I heard about College Fantasy Football by CBS Sportsline I was little excited. I’m not quite sure how it will work but I setup a league to test it out.
It looks the same as NFL Fantasy Football but the one major difference I can tell is it doesnt use names of players. I know there are some legalities with using those names, thats why all of the video games for college sports don’t do it, but they don’t even use numbers. All of the players are labeled by things such as “Notre Dame Fighting Irish QB ND”. Hmmm i wonder who that could be!?
I can just see my friends now, drafting all Ohio State players, or all Tennecheat players and of course my team the fighting Philip Rivers will be made up of all NC State players :).
In theory this should be pretty kickas, but I think it may flop with the biggest problem being the names. Not that most of us don’t know the big named guys and their positions on certain teams but how many people know more then 2 kickers in college or more then 3 tight ends? NFL Fantasy Football drafts take long enough as it is after the first 4 rounds, when people have to pick a WR not named TO, Moss, Marvin or Holt. We all have that one Fantasy Owner who will say “Hold on while I google the backup TE for East Carolina Univ. I’m trying to find a sleeper!.”
I set my league for Autodraft and figured it would be worth a shot to play. IF you want to take on “The Fighting Philip Rivers” then join up and get your whippin!
