Is anyone else going in blind, or is everyone doing research? I’ve watched about 12 UK games and maybe 8 random games with ranked teams this year.

I’ll get a good look at Michigan, OSU, Iowa and Illinois. That’s it. Maybe try and catch the title games tonight lol

Excited to do this again, and don't think I could name more than 5 players that aren't on Ohio State's roster.

I’ll get the draft thread going. I’ll also be driving back to Chicago from Indy after the Big Ten Title game ends, so right as the selection show starts. Someone just shoot me a text and I’ll pull over to make my pick.

Haven’t we typically gotten 4-5 rounds done tonight in the past?

I dont think that many. But this group has typically gotten through 6 rounds by Tuesday morning. Its the last few rounds when players arent as known and trying to pick the upsets with your player that takes us longer. The play-ins are all on Thursday and Round 1 isnt until Friday. So, getting 10-12 rounds in should be easy.

Are we just going to treat any players from a team that pulls out on Tuesday for Covid as like an injured player where people can select at the end of that round to replace them.

I think that would be fair.

That seems fine, but I'm not sure we can have anything but a "bad luck" clause if its after the games start. If they pull out and a game hasn't started, I think you should be able to replace, but not much we can do once all the teams are locked.

I agree. Anything before games start, you can make a swap. After games begin on Friday...sorry about your luck. 

That’s probably the “fairest” way to do it.

Laley,

What're the chances you can update the round by round with picks from each person on the draft page?

I know it is a lot of extra work, but it helps me see who is drafted/unavailable a lot easier lol

As we enter the 11th round, looks like we should make it through 12 before the tip tomorrow. Was nice to have an extra day.

Yeah, would've been a frantic morning today trying to get another 2 whole rounds done before noon. But nonetheless, it looks like we will likely have it done by tonight or early morning tomorrow. (Depending on Terry lol)

If we didn’t have today, I would’ve been blowing people up a little more lol

If I didn’t get sucked into playing call of duty the first night we would probably already be done.
