    First of all, this sucks! But it is what it is. Cheez And Cougs were discussing the single conference setup to try it out, but honestly if we go that route I simply don't have time for all those user games. So I personally would take a leave of absence until we went back to multiple conference setup. The tricky part for me is that I don't want to lose my spot in the league...at all! I love this league and when its working i love this game and would just want to basically be treated as if I am on AP.

    Hopefully though we figure something out as we always have with this file.

    All MAC teams. We can go at a slower pace with all the user games

    Jayrah can you create the OD from the week 8 file you have and sim it to the offseason...maybe we can pick up from there.

    Pretty much...just have it be you in the OD...then get to players leaving and send invites. I don't know what else to try at this point.

    Or just get us all the way through the offseason...as long as we can play with our teams, Im happy with that. Offseason be damned.

    Well you're not gonna like this....

    Simmed through from wk 8 all the way to week 2 offseason recruiting. FROZE AT 93% TWICE on that stage. I think the 2020 season is to blame, not the file. Ill betcha anything one of EA's server "fixes" somehow blew up this particular part of the 2020 season.

    I think we are screwed.

    So who is out if we start over? What set up do you guys want to try this time around?

    My $.02.....

    I greatly prefer taking bad teams and trying to build them into winners..... being an army vet, my poison of choice is the Black Knights. We could also do a coaching carousel league similar to Night Owls and have everyone start at 1* and try to go from there.

    Another interesting Idea is a 2 or 3 BCS conference setup where only the worst 4 or 5 teams in each conference are available. Use the Heisman settings we've talked about already and try and compete. Would make CPU games challenging and we could make sure user games hovered around 3-5 per season each

    I would want a similar set up to what we have - say 2 conferences. Bar people from taking the top teams though

    so, if we went Big 10 / Pac 12 again, we could say tht OSU, Michigan, Nebraska, PSU, USC, and Oregon are off limits or something.

    Also, I want Illinois :)

    I think Jayrah's post kind of summed up how screwed we are...

    That's the exact same spot where we've been stuck at with the original dynasty. Jayrah loaded a save file from way back in week 8 of last year and got the exact same result.

    However, with that said, I remember that there was speculation that the more time the file is saved by people, the more likely it is to be corrupted or something along those lines - so maybe we should ensure that everyone has deleted all of their save files from this dynasty.

    I think we should get the Big XII involved and MaxATX34 and I can duke it out for Texas.

    Man 10 seasons down the drain i would be pissed.

    Im down for whatever. At the pace we move we could go through 5 seasons at least before NCAA 2013.

    well, I think cougs and i declared this file dead. He tried advancing it with just himself in the league, and still failed.
