Got an interesting email from CBSSports.com in my in-box on Monday: Their college football fantasy game will now include real names -- "Tim Tebow," not "Florida QB 15."
WSJ Sports expert Nando DiFino has a fast follow-up on the announcement, though two things confuse me:
(1) If the NCAA is going to let this go, then I believe it opens the door to all sorts of other products.
(2) Forcing people to include a minimum of two conferences in their league design is wack:
College football, more than any other sport, includes a level of care about conference play that is fantastic. But if I'm a huge fan of the SEC and I get a bunch of other huge fans of the SEC to play in a league with me, why should we have to include another league we know/care less about?
