    Is it just me, or is this thing growing on anybody else? I wasn't really for it at first, but after thinking about it some more I must say it sounds like it could be a fun change up from the last 3 years of online dynastys.

    What would you guys think of starting as say 4 stars or something and just picking your #1 school as your goal? It'd certainly solve the LSU issue :)

    Plus, I think it might keep the CPU competitive a bit longer.

    If we did it I would say we start out as 3 star programs

    The only issue with starting out with low rated programs is there enough in the sec, big ten, pac 10, acc, on each side of the divisions to keep it balanced? If not some will move faster to CC games and BCS games if they are the only user on their side. Also when you start out this way most guys want to be in the sec or teams that are in CA, FL, an TX for recruiting.

    I think itmight be hard to keep balanced divisionsvwith the cc too. Like I said earlier if you guys wanted to do a side legue with the cc that would be cool.

    A little ff and a reason I hate auto correct, I missed a letter some how typing league and it put orgies and I almost missed it.

    What about starting out in 2 conferences like the MWC and the WAC/MAC and then whoever can get out first gets to pick their jobs where ever they want and then as the rest of us try to move up we can only fill out 3 conferences?

    I don't know if it would work, just throwing out ideas.

    If we did no conference champ game, I'd say MWC, WAC and Sun Belt. Then move up after that. We could each pick a different alma mater.

    I am anxiously waiting for CC. It would be a little difficult to start out with but thinking about having the challenge of working our way up ot the dream gig would be fun as hell. Not sure of the set up exactly but something I have been giving a little thought to would be:

    • Everyone pick their alma mater as their dream gig
    • Start out at a 3 or worse program to start in the same state or neighboring your dream gig as the HC (in the case of our current LSU gate we would have three coaches picking between ULM, ULL, La Tech & Tulane)
    • The first gig would not have to be in a specific conference just same state or region.
    • Everyone plays four or five User games (which we could control the scheduling options as outlined in the EA blogs this week)

    Another thing, if I remember correctly all the coaches are fully editable so we could go in and adjust the coaches as needed on the roster file before we started the OD. this would allow us to beat up the big names and watch to see how they fare as we progress. (Personally I would like to see Kiffin as the OC for Buffalo or WKU)

    just throwing that stuff out there.

    I'd love to see the Smiffins at Buffalo! haha.

    I think there's some good ideas here. Like I said before, I don't think we'd have to start at the rock bottom. It'd be cool if we all started at a level that would take us 2-3 seasons to get to a good program, even our dream program. At least then we'd all have to build a little bit which I think would be fairly interesting.

    THIS ONLY WOULD WORK THOUGH IF WE COMMITTED TO GETTING THROUGH 10+ SEASONS.

    If we started as coordinators the first couple years would be fairly quick since we'd only play one side of the ball.

    The other thing is imagine the strategy that would go into this. You'd have to pick and choose jobs based on schools that would fit your style of play.

    Plus it'd add an element to the game. Perhaps Jello and I both listed Oregon as our dream job. It'd be a race to see who could get there first and then once the job came open we'd both have to put our names in the hat and see who got hired. The loser would have to find someplace else. There's a lot of interesting scenarios that could play out in this.

    Again though, I'm just brain storming on this stuff.

    I hate the Lame Kiffin too. How you're coming up with otherwise confuses me.

    I think I'd prefer to start as a HC but I guess if someone wanted to be a coordinator at first that'd be cool. Perhaps you could start at a higher prestige level as a coordinator than if you were a HC to help even it out???

    Exactly. Thats what I was imagining happening in the LSU menage trois (no homo). Things could get crazy as hell. Imagine if we did this and aOSU offered me or Jello the job :eek:.

    I like the coaching carousel concept, but I would rather do it as a side league rather than here. Seriously what is stopping us from doing on the non premiere level

    I only want to play in one league and put all my NCAA time and efforts into that one team next year. I wouldn't be able to put the time into both leagues to recruit to the level I want to next year. But that's just my scenario.

    I forgot you were in Buffalo. I guess I'd rather see the Kiffins coaching girls softball in Canada. Is that better?
