You know college football season is getting closer when you start browsing the internet for new sweatshirts. All four seasons have their advantages and disadvantages but I think Fall has to be No. 1 because of the start of football season. Every Fall I say I’m not taking a Saturday morning to go pick pumpkins no matter how much I love Halloween.
It’s football season babe. Let’s throw on a new Boise State sweatshirt, pack a citrus Zyn, grab an adult morning coffee and knock out this walk with the good boy Louie before Game Day starts. Once we’re back to the house, it’s last minute lab time. One of my weaknesses is overthinking my bets. I grind during the week to make my Saturday morning a breeze but I have a hard time sticking with my early week notes.
Last season, DJ introduce the College Football Fantasy Draft. Eight of us Kota Cappers drafted college football teams. The more games your teams won the more points you received.
The scoring was simple. Each regular season win was a point. Make it to the conference championship game? That’s a point. Two points for a conference championship victory and a bowl win was another two points. The rules are also very simple.
I sucked last season. I drafted Arizona with my last pick and they won one damn game. Other than Ohio State the rest of my teams were just average. This year we are trying to go from last to first. Below are last year’s results:
1. @toastfanclub (105 points) – Toast seems to deactivate his Twitter every other week, so sorry for not being able to link his account.
2. @djlo4422 (83 points)
5. @danangell11 (79 points)
6. @campbelldjosh (78 points)
7. @Bruss35 (73 points)
8. @kotacapperpace (62 points)
Toast did have a championship team. Alabama, Iowa, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Coastal Carolina and Louisiana-L all finished with double-digit wins. But not this year, Toast.
With the addition of some new cappers to our team, DJ has decided to make two leagues for this season. League A consists of the guys that started the league that includes Kyle, DJ, Soup, Pumba, Toast, Dan and I. While League B includes @kotacapperVFC, @potatogobbler, @djcorf07, @donthomasmiller, @fadejt, @beats_picks and @dgbets.
DJ threw in a little wrinkle this season, however. The bottom three teams in League A at the end of the season are relegated to League B and the top three of the League B are going to be promoted to League A.
League A’s Draft is set for Monday (today) and @kotaintern will post results on the website after. League B will draft at a later date. The draft is pretty simple. Each capper will have nine power five teams and three “flex” teams, which are any teams that are non power five. The only catch is that you have to draft 1 team from each power five conference before you can draft a second team from a power five conference. You can’t draft two SEC teams before you have one of every power five conferences. Flex picks can be done at any time. You can take 3 flex teams with your first three picks if you want.
I didn’t have a great strategy last season. I should rephrase that. I didn’t have a strategy last year. I just picked the best teams available when my pick rolled around. This year, however, I’m going to try and draft the teams that I already placed win total overs for. Let’s get two birds stoned at once.
Best of luck to all the other competitors. I’m hoping to see more trash talking this season. I’m also going to live in the moment. I was the worst by far last season. My draft skills took a hit. This year, we have a strategy and are more prepared and I’m coming for that No. 1 spot.

My 2022 Season Predictions
– Relegated: Kyle, Toast, Pumba
– Promoted: Beast, Thomas, VFC (League B is going to be a dog fight)
