Bracket Notes: If you were to ask the 100 fans of the NCAA Football series to list their top 5 feature requests, you'd likely come up with 100 completely different answers. That's a problem that Tiburon faces every year as they're developing the franchise, "Sure there are 100 wishlist items, but which ones are truly the most important?"

The group behind the scenes on the forums have been working on a way to determine exactly that with help from the community. Our idea, sparked by Utopian jobob, is to have a March Madness style tournament of 64 wishlist items going head to head until we can ultimately proclaim our top choices.

Our setup is simple. Two wishlist items will be matched up in their own poll thread. Users will vote for their preference of the two to determine which item moves on to the next round. Beginning on Monday August 24th we will post 16 matchups that you will vote on. These will remain open for three days and then the next set of 16 matchups will be posted. We will continue on until we narrow it down to our top wishlist item. As you're voting, be sure to thoroughly read the description of each, otherwise you may misinterpret something; we will not change votes because you voted incorrectly.

Since the NCAA team is currently ramping up their development process now, we'll need to move swiftly in order for them to receive this information and be able to put it to good use. Therefore, be sure to check the boards as often as possible so that you can keep up on the latest matchups. Once a poll is closed, you will no longer be able to vote to share your opinion.

The selection committee (cdj & gschwendt) ranked each of the wishlist items 1-16 based on four characteristics:

* Community feedback - how many are requesting the item
* Potential impact - how big of a change it will make to the game
* Recent updates to it or similar modes - If something hasn't been touched in a long time, it jumped higher and vice versa
* Feasibility - how likely the developers would be able to implement a feature

This was a very hard process, much harder than myself or cdj thought it would be. How do you determine what should be ranked higher when two requests are very different but mean just as much to two different groups? We feel that we were able to tap into all groups and get a good grasp on what is important overall. However, just because an item is ranked lower, does not mean it's not as important to you or someone else. With your help, that's what this tournament will determine.

To kick things off, Thursday (8/20) I'll post four matchups of eight items that we ranked at 16. These will be play-in matchups to determine who will ultimately be paired against the #1 ranked requests in the first round. This will also help give you a feel for how the format will work. Then, beginning on Monday the full tournament will begin.

We're really excited about this and truly believe this will finally help make our voice and wishes more clear not just for NCAA Football 11 but for the franchise going forward. In order for it to be a success, we'll need as much involvement as possible. We ask that everyone here take the few minutes out of their day to vote on the polls but also be sure to spread the word. The more people that we have voting, the more impact the polls can make.
