College Fantasy Football Commissioner

Well folks, it was only a matter of time.  Once we got individual players and live scoring for College Football teams it was only a matter of time before we gave you the full commissioner experience for College Fantasy Football.  We now have live scoring for ALL Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Div. 1A) schools.  Basically, if you love College Football, this is the best Fantasy experience you can have with it and best of all, it's FREE.  You can choose which conferences you want to use as your player pool, set the rosters up anyway you want to, and customize your scoring system just like any of our other commissioner products.  I have to say that I was skeptical of Fantasy College Football at first.  I barely knew the players on the teams I rooted for let alone try and figure out who the good players are throughout College Football.  But since there is really good content and projections, I've drafted some really great teams in recent years which, in turn, has actually elevated my interest in all of College Football.  I find myself watching WAC games until all hours of the night, just to root on my guys.  It's done for me, what Fantasy has done for Pro Football.  So, get your buddies together and start a league.  Check it out here .

We had numerous issues that i noticed were global since I am in three leagues. Given that this blog has not been updated in two months leading up to football season, I am concerned that there is not enough attention being paid to feedback.

Examples of scoring oddities:

*Jon Baldwin of Pitt had a 2pt conversion reception on Thursday night, wasn't scored until Monday.
*On Tuesday, Robert Griffin and Ben Chappelle showed ZERO points after being tabulated correctly on Sunday and Monday - this affected *W/L and led to much angst in my league.
*Bonus points for yardage/TD length have yet to be accounted, a full day after games ended.
*My favorite was Thursday night, Nathan Enderle of Idaho had a huge game that was reflected on his player page, but wasn't scored on the live scoring page until 11am Friday

When I found this blog link on the home page of my league, I expected a full-throttle discussion of the issues plaguing Week One of the college "Diet Live Scoring". I am disappointed in the responsiveness to this issue, both on the blog and thru the Help Center.

Please do not make me say to my friends and readers, "Hey, you got what you paid for".

extreme issues with week one scoring. all my games were done with and ended up with 120.75 points. checked after last game because my opp. had one player left. he ended up with 107 and i went down to 106. scores show that my qb ended with ZERO. no matter how you figure points, it does not add up. if my qb score were shown i would have ended up with 120.75 and a win, not a loss by 1 point.

The decimals come into the scoring when your players are playing a "weak opponent." In College Fantasy Football a weak opponent is when a FBS team has a game against a FCS team. For example  in the case of your Nevada player, inweek 1 Nevada(a FBS team) played Eastern Washington (a FCS team). In the rules it states that when this happens your player will get 75% of the score he would have recieved, thus the 17.25 points instead of 23.
I hope this clears it up for you.

There seems to be a scoring error in week 1. I woke up this morning and checked the league standings/scores and the weak opponent factor was not accounted for. In the players stats it showed minus points for the weak opponent but in the individual and team scores this was not subtracted. When is this error going to be corrected? It has caused me a win in our league (I am now in a tie). It would be nice for all involved to know what  the actual standings are before setting future lineups.

Love the site...love the league.  However our scoring on night one is all jacked up.  I'm sure we aren't the only ones, but I wonder how we can correct it?

For example, Hankerson was credited with 17.25 points..should have been 23 (two rec td's and 114 yds receiving)??  We had some Nevada players that were credited with 0.  There were other instances as well where decimals were given too.

Please advise.

care to comment on the legal aspects of this product ? Just curious, don't get me wrong I immediately set up a league but am wondering if NCAA has reached out to CBS as I don't want the plug pulled mid season.
