    college fantasy football with players names.

    CBS is using the real players names for fantasy college football. I saw in the register a little blurb about a lawsuit stating that names and stats are public domain, and the NCAA cant refuse the use of them.

    I know this goes in the gaming forum, but not a lot of people go on there, so this can be moved after while, but I wanted to see if anyone else is interested in playing?

    I started a league for us CF'ers. Draft date and time is Sunday Aug 24th at 6:45pm. But that can change.

    Fantasy football, fantasy baseball, fantasy basketball & other sports - CBSSports.com Live Scores, Stats, Schedules
    private league name- cyclone fanatic
    password- cyclones

    I usually dont like CBS fantasy, but ill give it a shot since its college and they have the real names. There isnt a lot of changes i can make. I think only 10 teams and all the setting stay as they are, unfortunately.

    I'm in as well. Looks like fun.


    42-53 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Re: college fantasy football with players names.

    There is another site that does fantasy college football and basketball. I did it last year as a Big 12 league. It used actual player names last year and appears to be doing it this year as well. Here is a link to the site:

    U-Sports - Fantasy College Football and Basketball - Home Page

    If you do it I would expand your talent pool to more than one conference. Getting 15 man rosters from 12 teams can be tough depending on how many teams you have in your league.

    doesnt look bad. The features on CBS have been horrible in the past. I would go there instead if it were free.
