Come Play Fantasy *College* Football With Notre Dame Fans and the One Foot Down Staff

If you’ve always wanted to play fantasy football, but loathe the NFL, this is your chance.

Yahoo To Announce Q2 Earnings One Day After Appointing New CEO

Update: We’ve got our 20 teams, so I’m removing the link. Thanks to Brett, Chase, Jack, Kevin, Matthew, Peter, P.J., Jay, Chance, Jack, Charles, Tommy, Robert, Stew, Christina, Cooper, Brent, Chad and Christopher for hopping aboard!

Yahoo! has launched a new fantasy product for college football, and we’d like you to join us in its inaugural season.

One Foot Down has created a free College Fantasy Football league. We’re not allowed to offer prizes, but smack talk is perfectly acceptable.

We’ll have 20 teams comprised of players from the Power Five and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (65 teams total). There’s 15 player slots, with nine starting positions: quarterback, running back, running back, wide receiver, wide receiver, tight end, flex (wide receiver/running back/tight end), kicker and a defense/special teams.

The season starts Aug. 30, so we’ll be drafting at 9 p.m. Eastern the day before to accommodate our potential west coast players. You’ll get 90 seconds to make your pick and we’ll hopefully have this whole thing wrapped up Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon or Jimmy Kimmel go on air.

Again, this is the invite link.

The rest is just details. Questions? Leave them below.
