So, I've had this idea for about two years, and I might want some help with getting it implemented.

My idea is this: 50 separate leagues for all 50 states in the USA, each with a varying amount of teams, and locations decided by personal preference. I have a text files with the locations, and I'm stuck in the process of setting up divisions (if necessary). I also have a world_default that has all 50 states in the US as countries, just for this exercise.

The schedules will probably vary between all the states, since states such as Wyoming and Delaware only have four teams, while states like California will have 30. At the end of each season, there will be a postseason tournament with the champions of all 50 leagues, which will determine who the best team in the USA is.

How does this sound? How can I improve it? Who would like to help out with team names/divisions/etc.? I'd like to know what you guys think.

Maybe not all 50, mixing some the smaller states in with one of the lower team count adjacent states (Wyoming with Idaho or Montana, Delaware with Maryland, etc)?

Idaho team names and locations:
Boise Gems
Idaho Falls Eagles
Pocatello Railers
Couer d'Alene Wolves
Nampa-Caldwell Twins
Twin Falls Titans
Sandpoint Vikings
Blackfoot Warriors
Sun Valley Alpines
Preston Dynamite
Lewiston Pioneers

Depending on how many teams you need, assuming 6, but I gave more just in case you need a few more. Boise, Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Nampa-Caldwell, Lewiston and Sandpoint would probably be the 6 you'd want to use if just 6. Couer d'Alene and Twin Falls would be for an 8 league, the other 3 would be the two of your preference for a 10 league.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll use some of them for my project.

However, I do have the Boise Apples already - playing in Green Apples Stadium, with a custom jersey - kinda like my ABO version.

Boise Apples works. Made an addition of ideas on the prior post. Also, I think Pocatello should be the Russets instead of the Railers, now that I think of it.

Yep, I have most of the ones you listed in my project: SLC, Provo, Ogden, St. George, Orem, Logan, and Sandy. However, I did include West Jordan to round out the 8 I plan to have in Utah.

As for Idaho, I have Boise, Idaho Falls, Coeur d'Alene, Pocatello, Nampa, and Twin Falls.

Loving the team names so far, and I think there's custom jerseys for most of them! If my brain is working properly tomorrow, I'll throw out the names I have in mind for Michigan's teams.
