Subject: RIHC 2010-11: Qualifying Leagues|

It's time to begin organizing the qualifying leagues for the RotoGuru Invitational Hoops Challenge.
Last year, we had 2 AAA leagues and 2 AA leagues. We will continue with a pair of AAA leagues this year, but we can have as many AA leagues as needed to fill the demand. Each league should have 12 managers, and each league will need a commissioner. Rules will be the same as the RIHC, as spelled out in the RIHC preseason discussion thread.
AAA league slots are open only for those who have qualified by playing in the RIHC or a qualifying league last season. There are 24 slots to fill. I believe that the following guidelines form the best qualifications for filling those slots:
1. RIHC managers not invited to the RIHC this year (7)
2. AAA managers ranked 3rd-6th (7)
3. AA managers ranked 2nd-6th (10)
This list includes 24 managers, but there will probably be a few who decline to participate this year. If so, the remaining slots should be filled by
(a) anyone from one of last year’s QL’s who agrees to serve as a AAA commish this year (if we do not have two commish volunteers from the list of those otherwise qualified),
(b) next, those finishing 7th in the AAA leagues(2),
(c) followed by those finishing 7th in a AA league (2).
If more AAA slots are open, they may be offered to any returning QL manager, regardless of league or rank, first come, first served.
The following 24 managers are therefore automatically qualified for a AAA league:
(in some cases, I may have listed the team name, where I do not know the manager name)
BB the Ball
The 7th place AAA teams are:
The 7th place AA teams are:
Spades and Diamonds
You may use this thread to express your interest in joining a AAA league. If you are interested, you must provide an email address or your spot may be forfeited if we cannot track you down when league activities (registration, drafting etc. commence)
I need two volunteers to serve as AAA commissioners. Leagues should be hosted at Yahoo - unless the Commish prefers another site (ESPN is probably a viable option), and each draft should be hosted using kafenatid.net “On the Clock” software. RotoGuru.net will pay the registration cost for your draft. By using a common draft site, we will have the ability to compare and analyze the various drafts when they are completed.
Once we have two AAA Commissioners, they may start separate threads to recruit each league (using the priority guidelines listed above). Please wait until both commissioners have been named before filling specific AAA leagues.
If you are interested in a AA league and you are not pre-qualifed for a AAA slot, you may also list your interest in this thread. Again, provide your email address. We also need a volunteer to Commish the first AA league. Once the first AA league is filled, we will begin to fill another league. There is no qualification standard for joining a AA league - anyone may join. However, participants in the RIHC or a AAA league should refrain from also joining a AA league unless there are open slots that must be filled to complete a league.

I'm in. Looks like I'm most likely going to be in a AA league, but I'll go ahead and put myself on the waiting list for one of the AAA leagues as a result of my 7th place AA finish.

We have three volunteers to commish, so let's get started.|
WonderB will commish on AAA league, hosted at Yahoo
Wolfer will commish the other AAA league, hosted at ESPN
CJ will commish the first AA league. Hosting site is up to that league (or commissioner)
I have asked each of these people to set up a new thread in this Hoops forum to recruit their 12 managers. Once a league is filled, further discussion for that league will move to the Leagues & Standings forum.
I will note that wolfer was not on the list for AAA, but he is an experienced commissioner, and I did mention that I would consider elevating a commissioner to AAA if we needed to find commissioners. Typically, there are several on the AAA list who do not return, so I do not think anyone on the AAA list will get bumped - but if they do, it will be the last to respond.
