The IllinoisLoyalty league returns for the 17/18 season!

It's that time of year football fans! DM me your email if you'd like to play this year. Also, we used ESPN last season, but let me know if you think a different site has a better setup.

We're getting the band back together!

I am in. Since I am the reigning, defending, undisputed IllinoisLoyalty league champion.

Can we do the league on Yahoo?

I am back in whether we do it on Yahoo or ESPN. I personally prefer Yahoo just for ease of use but would be willing to do it on either site.

Yahoo it is. I think I've sent invites to everyone who messaged me. If I missed anyone, please let me know.

Draft is tentatively scheduled for Mon Aug 28 8:00pm CDT.

That would be UofI09. He beat me in the Shiva Bowl. (COUGH!!! although I had the most points last season by a mile COUGH!!!)

Also, if I've sent you an invite please accept it ASAP so we have a current headcount. If you think you should have been invited, but don't see an invite, check your spam folder.

Check your mail closely. I overlooked my invite the first time. The subject line will say "Matt via Yahoo Sports". Check your spam folder as well.

Invite sent. We've now got 4 invites out for the two remaining spots. A few haven't responded for around a week, but if we need to we can expand the league to 14.

Didn't hear any more interest. So the league is locked in at 12 teams.

Draft!

Draft will be this coming Monday, August 28 @ 8:00 pm CDT. I've set the order to randomly generate 30 mins before the draft.

Looking forward to dominating another draft this year
