    I am just waiting for some updated depth charts for a handful of these teams before I knock them out. BTW I already did MTSU and UTSA.

    Jack Lambert let me know he was going to knock out his teams once he gets the most definitive depth charts available.

    Vanilla_Sky - You are doing the same correct?

    Just waiting on Phall, McCafferyDude and Deceptive Speed to knock out the SEC.

    I am going to do my best to complete my teams and take any unclaimed ones this week so we can get this done.

    I'm awaiting on depth charts, especially for the Power 5 conference teams I have left. The official charts for the smaller schools are a little harder to come by so I may go with projections if I have to for them.

    I have finished UW and Clemson from that list. If no objects, I plan on also doing the unclaimed Big 12 and ACC schools as soon as fresh depth charts are out.

    They are all yours. I knocked out Vandy and Miami real quick to help out a little.

    I am still waiting on some updated depth charts for my teams....a lot of these schools are really adamant on releasing them as late as possible.

    As new charts are released I'll try to take a gander and report any updates I see...if people could update their original posts when they see a change mentioned that'd be great but I understand not everyone may be able to do this so I'll just try to make sure they're accounted for in the final count.

    I'll do what I can. Usually if I'm watching a game and I notice someone I try my best to make a comment in the team thread.

    Just checking in, guys. Plan on knocking mine out in a hurry (while still doing a quality job, obviously!).

    Harbaugh's latest shenanigan is not publishing a roster at all "until game week." The school's website still only hosts 2016 season info. Fortunately, the rabid DWF fanbase has me covered for any proverbial loose cracks.

    Once I'm on a roll, I'd love to help out with a couple of unclaimed team writeups where applicable. See you all soon.

    I'll be knocking most of my write-ups tomorrow or Sunday. I've been very busy, having gotten a new job recently, but I'll finally have some free time tomorrow to knock most of mine out.

    Vanilla_Sky - FAU is available as well. Dolphins15 let me know he won't be able to do it. I hate Lane Kiffin so I would rather not do the write up lol.

    With permission (and apologies due), I'll write up Illinois, Minnesota, and Rutgers this weekend (/tomorrow while watching Michigan on TV). Minnesota at least won already. If there are another few sanscrit schools, cue me toward them please.
