DALLAS, Aug. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- College fantasy football has not caught on like its NFL brethren. The traditional format where one drafts players does not translate well when there are more than 124 FBS teams and players typically only start for two years. But this month's launch of Pigskin Fantasy U (PFU) brings a fun new twist to college fantasy sports – a league that allows you to draft entire teams to create your roster.
The concept is very simple, making it fun for college football fans of all levels. During an online, real-time draft, participants select teams to make-up their roster for the season. Each week, the participant selects teams to either start or bench. Points are given when a starting team wins.
"I can't wait for football season to start," said country star and PFU Celebrity Commissioner Darius Rucker. Rucker, a University of South Carolina graduate and avid Gamecocks fan continued, "Watching games on Saturday is one of my favorite things to do and adding Pigskin Fantasy U to the mix is going to be awesome. My buddies and I needed another reason to talk about football and trash talk each other," joked Rucker.
PFU resides at www.PigskinFantasyU.com, where you can start or join a league for free through October 31st, long after the season starts. When you start your own league, you set your own rules regarding the number of teams each person drafts, whether you play a head-to-head or one-vs.-all format, as well as many other options. The live, online draft feature lets friends and foes alike join together from far away places.
"It's the perfect combination – the fantasy fun of making every game meaningful but without the nerve-wracking experience of researching a backup running back or wondering whether your guy is healthy enough to play," said Brad Miller, president and founder of recently launched PFU.
For more information about the league, or to schedule an interview with Miller, contact Abra Garrett, PFU Media Relations, at 214-476-9208 or via email at [email protected].
