    CCL/PTL comparison

    Okay, honest question here:

    How does the PTL compare to the CCL? I quickly looked over the box scores for the PTL and was less than impressed. Iowa players rarely break 30 points and it seems like nobody is particularly dominating. It seems from my perspective that over half of the ISU players have better stat lines in the CCL than the best Iowa player in the PTL. Are the game lengths different? I'm just looking for more information.

    ISU players have talent and Iowa players don't

    Re: CCL/PTL comparison

    Based on the players (or lack of) involved, I'd have to say they're roughly equal (although I don't know what that means). I don't know why scoring is different - other than just the philosophy of the programs they play for.

    I was dreaming the other day about how to make a more competitive summer league. I think it would be cool to have Drake, ISU, UNI, and Iowa players all in one league - games played in Marshalltown (probably the most central location with a decent gym and parking), and maybe it could even include some MCC JuCos, etc. I know it's just a dream, but it would be double the competition level of either the CCL or PTL.

    I'm pretty sure there are strict NCAA rules for summer leagues that state that more than two division 1 schools can't compete in the same one.

    Wow. Serious?! What would be the point of that rule? To keep kids from playing similar competition and improving?

    Since the league must be located within 100 air miles of the student athlete's school, it would be a competitive disadvantage for schools that are more isolated. At least that's my understanding.

    Re: CCL/PTL comparison

    The PTL claims that there is defense played. I've never watched a game, so I have no idea.

    I've seen many PTL games and that is not the case.

    Iowa fan will claim this is the reason why the scoring is different, but I've seen PTL games and there isn't much difference at all. Summer league d is the same every summer for every league I've seen.

    Re: CCL/PTL comparison

    I could care less but I really hope we beat them this year. I would hate to see them rattle off 3 in a row versus us, which could happen if we lose at home this year.

    I think we'll be fine next season but may not have gelled by early Dec.

    The PTL has good UNI players while the CCL has very poor Drake players. Big difference in competition.
