    We have heard them complain, but they are allowed to play every other sport with no restrictions. Again, we program for non-athletes so we listen to them but don't have any sympathy for a former collegiate athlete wanting to run rough shot over our student body in a sport they were playing formerly. The rule is actually a little nicer to them after My boss and I got here, it used to be 2 years no matter what and it included all levels of collegiate play. So for example if someone transferred here from a D3 or NAIA after their first year (probably wasn't getting the playing time), then they had to sit. We upped it to only affect D1 and we said if you only were on a roster for 1 year than you only sat 1 year. Our athletes are treated like royalty compared to the average student. I don't think I would have this same rule if I was in charge at a D3 school, but D1's need no extra treatment.

    We do at Texas Tech. We say that it corresponds with their sport (Basketball=Basketball, Baseball=Softball, Football=Flag Football, Soccer=Soccer and so on). If they are on the athletic roster for only 1 year they only miss one academic year. So if they played they Soccer Fall 2016, they would be eligible for Fall 2018. They would have to miss Spring 2018 (Same Academic Year as played), then they would be ineligible for the next academic year Fall 2018-Spring 2019. If they were on an athletic roster for more than 1 year (2-4) then they would have to sit 2 academic years. For example if a baseball player just got done with past spring 2017. They would be ineligible for Fall 2017/Spring 2018 and Fall 2018/Spring 2019. They would be eligible Fall 2019.
    The athletes often say "I didn't play that much" or "I didn't Varsity Letter". We only look at Rosters. Coaches decide who plays. If this seems harsh, it is set up that way for a reason. We really don't want long time D1 Athletes to play in our Intramural Program. If they are students for a long time then we end up seeing them.

    Hope this helps.

    We have played "Rocket League" the last couple of years and also had some old school (Nintendo, Sega, etc.) consoles set up for folks to play while they were waiting.

    We still make teams come to our office and pay us, after that we move them to the division they want. Doug, can you make sure this is still an option? I think as long as use the pay option that should still take precedent?

    Just wondering. We are thinking about doing some type of online-scheduling and wondered if anyone actually uses the option available on IMleagues. Would love to hear from you.

    Just finished Sand Volleyball and had to request multiple teams to change their name because 7 different teams wanted to call themselves Sets on the Beach. Not sure if it's possible, because teams go to the wait list first, but it would save us some time. Other than that IMLeagues is awesome and thanks for all you do.
