    ALMA Mater NFL Keeper Lge

    Unique new 'Exclusive' league:
    Each owner supplies one fantasy team,
    with NFL players who went to a specific handful of colleges.

    Each starting lineup has 11 on offense and 11 on defense, plus a kicker. IDP earn key points.

    We each start out with our favorite college football program.
    Preferably our alma mater. Or, at least, a team you grew up rooting for.
    Looking for diehard CFB fans, who follow the alumni in the pros.
    And who've played Yahoo fantasy football for a few years.

    We’re sharing data a few of us are compiling. To help you see which schools produce the most NFL players and stars, at various positions.

    Most schools are available, as you'll be among the first in.
    All but these five (and more as they are claimed):
    Florida, Oklahoma, Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin.

    We'll have over a dozen owners. We'll take turns picking other schools.

    If interested, let us know how big a fan you are of your favorite program. How long you've rooted for it, if you grew up nearby, if you're an alumnus. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Pete
