    Default Fantasy League Hall of Fame

    Work in progress but here is what I have so far. Still to come-- list of all time highest scoring weeks, more in depth write ups of each season, editing. Let me know if there are other things you guys think I should add. Hopefully Jensens will be willing to sticky this at the top of the forum


    2014


    This season is notable for being a complete trainwreck. This is the first year Jensens wasn't availible to commish, and between his absence, a significantly lower than usual number of players, and frequent problems with the TWT forums, the season never really got off the ground. Lineups got posted late, and slowly, scores weren't tabulated properly or at all, and eventually we literally stopped playing. Because we stopped halfway through the season and we didn't even make an NCAA lineup thread, I decided that the only sensible way to have a champion was to determine who would have gotten the most points at NCAAs with their best possible lineup. It turned out to be me, but in my defense, I think I would have scored the most points with any possible combination of my lineup, as I ended up drafting 12 AAs.

    My team also set an all-time NCAA scoring record, although I think that gets a giant asterisk because we were playing with 8 players instead of 14 as we have in some past years, making it massively easier to draft a championship caliber team. Zapp and I both also benefited from lineups being posted AFTER the tournament had completed and the results were known. Paytons 2010 team and my 2009 team still are the top 2 in my opinion

    2010

    The most notable things from this year are the sheer dominance of R. Paytons team as he crushed the opposition in only his first year of competition in our league and claimed his first title. 159 points is currently the all-time NCAA fantasy record, and with 4 champs including the hodge winner and OW its unlikely that it will be topped in the near future.

    Another notable thing is that I (may) have set a record for the most wrestlers outside the top 8 to AA on a team. Further research would be needed to confirm this, but four of my seven AA's were seeded #9 or lower. That, combined with a finals appearance by Mr. Dan Vallimont, was enough to give me 2nd place despite a somewhat lackluster lineup.

    2009

    This year I set a scoring record that will never be broken, largely because we changed the way we scored the tournament to reflect normal NCAA scoring. I took the trouble to calculate what my team would have done in modern times largely to compare it to Paytons allstar team of 2010. It turns out the decision to leave Mike Miller and Konrad Dudziak on my bench (both of whom ended up being finalists) means that this team falls just short of Payton's. If I had started Dudziak over the 2-2 Rashard Goff I would have been the first team to break 160

    Trusty won the league the first year...Even though we did it a different way still that year it'd be interesting to see what he had at the end that year as well.

    I remember he was relatively dominant all the way through too.

    I've got a spreadsheet of data containing scores for the last four years of the league (which I'll send to you Lost if you want it for this thread) something that I've always been interested in tracking is the leading individual scorer for each week. I don't know if I'll put all four years worth here in this post but here are some.

    2009-2010
    Andrew Hochstrasser (6)
    Matt Coughlin (24)
    Paul Young (28)
    Hudson Taylor (33)
    Paul Young (28)
    Craig Brester (46*)
    Kelly Kubec/Clayton Jack (15)
    Mike Benefiel (39)
    Brent Metcalf (40)
    James Nicholson/Nikko Triggas (16)
    DJ Russo (30)
    James Nicholson (22)
    Kyle Borshoff/Steve Fittery (20)
    Josh Patterson (18)
    Chad Porter (16)
    Brian Stephens (18)
    Troy Nickerson/Mike Grey/Mack Lewnes (12)
    Andrew Howe/Dan Erekson (32)
    Jayson Ness (33)

    *I could be completely wrong and may wind up disproving this in a few minutes but this Brester week (I think he had some random dual AND Vegas) is still the all time one week scoring record for an individual wrestler

    I haven't done the first year yet, but I do intend to, I just didn't have time the other night and thought I'd post what I had. I'll pm you my email, if you could send me whatever spreadsheets/documentation you have that would be awesome

    LoSt,
    A real nice write up . Thanks for throwing me a bone on my second place year . This brought back a ton of fond memories-(I still remember you calling me an idiot for taking Paul Young over tucker Lane in like the 12th-14th round and PY ended up my leading regular season point scorer.
    Shane , sorry for being such a bitch this year yet after last years surgery and nearly croaking then falling and fracturing my C-5 disc and being told my next fall or stumble could be fatal I was a tad on edge. This discektomy was a success yet have fought pneumonia the last month-for those of you on Medicare-when you are supposed to stay in the hospital for 5-7 days after surgery be prepared to go home the same frigging day !! When you are a crotchety old bachelor living alone it is difficult to make it .
    I'd like to return sometime yet (finally ) am getting my knee replaced next year -the left one 6 months later-so since they won't let me stay at home alone I'll be back in a nursing home for a while . Nuff of this crap.
    I LOVE wrestling !! And I truly appreciate all the friends I've made on this forum .
    Once again a great job LoSt and Shane !!

    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    I didn't qualify this year....that sucked. New kid and new job role definitely hurt me but so did letting go of some good talent to try to get my team in better position for end of year WC run.

    Hopefully be in a better position next year to put in a solid effort.
