    I am not sure if this is the right place for this, but I am currently uploading all the games plus the spring game to my seedbox to aid with the seeding process. I will leave them there until the end of the season at least. :oh::io:

    is there anyway I can see what games you have?

    I'd love to get some games from 2004-2006 if you have any of those

    Remember that if you want a particular game seeded you must ask for it and hopefully someone has it ready to go.

    Catboy, I do have the 2012 Purdue game.
    MBash Due to limited space on the seedbox I only have the current football season.

    To elaborate on what a seedbox is.

    A seedbox is a private dedicated server used for the uploading and downloading of digital files.
    Seedboxes generally make use of the BitTorrent protocol for uploading and downloading, although they have also been used on the eDonkey2000 network. Seedboxes are usually connected to a high speed network, often with a throughput of 100 Mbps or even 1 Gb/s. Some providers are testing and offering 10Gbit shared servers, while others are developing other systems that will allow users to scale their needs on the fly. Files are downloaded from the torrent site and its users, and from there they can be downloaded at high speeds to a user's personal computer via the HTTP, FTP, SFTP, or rsync protocols. This allows for anonymity and, usually, removes the need to worry about ratio. Seedboxes can run on most major operating systems (Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X). More expensive seedboxes may provide VNC connection, or remote desktop protocol on some Windows-based seedboxes, allowing many popular clients to be run remotely. Other seedboxes are special purpose and run a variety of torrent specific software including web interfaces of popular clients like Transmission, rTorrent, and ╬╝Torrent, as well as the TorrentFlux web interface clients. Mobile interface support is also offered by clients such as Transmission.
    Seedboxes on high speed networks are typically able to download large files within minutes, provided that the swarm can actually handle such a high upload bandwidth. Seedboxes generally have download and upload speeds of 100 megabits per second. This means that a 1 GB file can finish downloading in under 2 minutes. That same 1 gigabyte file can be uploaded to other users in the same amount of time, creating a 1:1 upload:download ratio for that individual file. Seedboxes' ability to transfer files so quickly makes them very attractive to the P2P and BitTorrent communities. Because of the mentioned high speeds, seedboxes tend to be popular inside private torrent trackers, where maintaining an upload/download ratio above 1 can be very important.
    Seedboxes are also used to circumvent "speed throttling" by Internet service providers or to evade laws such as the HADOPI law in France.
    The above exerpt was taken from Wikipedia and that is where the links will take you. Sorry I didn't feel like typing what a seedbox was when I can copy and paste. lol
