I'm spectacularly saddened.
#1, I have three teams I am big on... Florida (childhood team), Oklahoma (college), and UCF (longtime hometown, just finally becoming noteworthy the past decade)... one is taken, and I'm 100ish points short of the Top 20 requirement.
But #2, and probably the reason to be excluded anyway, is that I consider myself a "right thinking" person who finds the BCS to be mathematically the best champion. Well, there's no true "best" way, it's all a measure of where you sit between true best team (which I consider to be the one that one win the most games in a round robin Monte Carlo type setup) and "flukyness"/excitement in your champion setup (and connected in with that, accessibility for more teams).
Anyways, blah blah blah, I'm going to go push for that 1600 so I can take my place as the #1 team in the land before someone else beats me (what are the odds of me actually making it before these top 20 teams get gobbled :-p) [oh well, it's really a cool rule and cool tourny overall!]
I guess my final question is about freemium. I'm freemium, I play quickly... but I do have a max of 2 other games already locked up in a Jeopardy tournament (how could I not with my name!).... [coincidentally, mcshanester and flexmaster are in my Jeopardy tourny group]. I think I can finish 6 games in a week easy, it's just a matter of how quickly opponents move. I check... well... far too often throughout the full day... but if opponents are slow, I'm not sure 2 (or even 4) slots will be nearly fast enough.
Maybe I'll just pay for a year, heck. We'll see. Gotta get the rating up first, then we'll cross that bridge...
