League 5 is one of the most intense and active leagues in all of SimSports, trailing only League 15 in message board activity. L5 has a reputation as one of the most difficult leagues in which to recruit and maintains a solid stable of good coaches. In addition, the Noll-scully metrics show L5 as currently being the most competitively balanced of the leagues tracked by coach tdane.
L5 has the benefit of receiving regular updates from tdane's SimSportsUtilities, which are used to generate previews, recaps, and other interesting stats to provide some message board fodder. Additionally, L5 is home to the WNTT Radio Show.

We created something called a compass which is a conformed template placed in the top-right hand corner of all pages of common history. Browsers can return to the this page by selecting League 5 Home.
This compass will allow you to jump from NTT season to NTT season to see which teams return or have back-to-back deep runs into the NTT.
The corresponding recruiting information (Labeled by Graduating HS Class) is also maintained.
The League 5 Compass (and all the corresponding links within) can be maintained and updated by updating the Template: LeagueCompass. This allows for the web pages and the compasses to be uniform and consistent from page to page.
Early Season Tournaments
League 5 currently boasts two premier tournaments that span 6 games, the three exhibition games and the first three non-conference games. The top performers in these games compete in a single-elimination tournament following the games which is conducted via scrimmage. These are filled to the brim with top-notch competition and are a blast to participate in.
Coach johnnyorr started GAMIT in Season 56 with two four-team pods. The tournament has since expanded to 24 teams.
The Inferno was organized by coach bobby11 in Season 62 and has rapidly grown with 30 teams expected next season.
