    Once we get the sliders right, do you guys want to run a real TDL2?

    Right now, we're just goofing, but we could do it for real if we wanted. Same rules about casual and such, but no team switching, and actual scheduled advances. We could use it as a feeder for league one, and put the new guys there.

    I've seen this kind of thing work before, many times. Just thought I'd mention it.

    No question - that was my hope initially.

    Perhaps a bit quicker pace, though?

    Doesn't have to be warp speed, just zero tolerance for week-long waits. ;)

    Hmm, interesting idea. Isn't South Carolina a 3-star school? ;)

    We could also avoid teams selected in 1.

    If we roll this this concept, I got dibs on UTEP.

    I'd be for this idea. 3 star schools give us a good opportunity to look at new guys. For example, with this slider set, we know a guy with a three star team running the table is glitching, and we can avoid placing that guy in league 1, without the mess of adding and subtracting. I have a three coach waiting list right now.

    Once we get comfortable with the slider test run, let's look into actually putting it together. Three star and under. Same setup as league one.

    I know for sure I can run a second league, as long as it's a feeder league and not a priority. If it grows, we'll seek new forum space for it, pick a commish, and let it become its own thing.

    Let's start a thread and see who's in for an actual league 2. If we get a good number, I'll invite the guys waiting, and we'll crank it up. cool?

    This does so many things:

    - Gives some active guys more games to play
    - Presents a different type of challenge/viewpoint as we play with 3-star or less programs
    - Aids in screening quality players for the "major leagues"

    That might be a good idea. Three stars leaves me tempted to take Stanford or Washington. Two might be a better way to go.
