    benefits of starting over:
    1. gets rid of CC so no one gets fired.
    2.people gets a team they like besides :5stars:programs.
    3.Keller doesn't get a cheap nc title..biggest reason;)
    4.get people reinterested

    reasons for not starting over:
    1.we don't like to admit failure
    2.were like EA we like to patch things but not actually fix the problem
    3.now that we forced teams they don't really like they will be happy
    4.its bbj idea

    For it:

    5. People are butthurt that they haven't made any progress, won championships or recruited worth a damn and want a level start.

    Against it:

    5. Some people have actually played this years game and built something meaningful.
    6. Some people aren't delirious and blow up small problems into something that keeps them from enjoying the game/league
    7. Erasing everyone's coaching record and progress would be a waste of time

    The reason I voted against it is because if we can get everyone in two conferences without being the upper-echelon schools, we should be fine. It will then be like the good dys where we can start building our rivalries.

    i could care less about winning anything...i mostly just want to turn off CC so were not stuck having to keep making bandaids whenever some one gets fired.

    1 person(you have actually built for only 2 seasons mind you something meaningful as a OC. i mean om has but he has to move. keller did but we wouldn't letr him keep buf. "so its i built something i like and i don't want to give it up.."

    No, they will assume the prestige of the coach they replace.

    The only way I would be FOR starting over is to use CC with no restrictions.

    thought the big reason people don't want to start over is because they want to keep their shit...we would get their prestige with starting over also..

    I fail to see how this would be any fun. Especially since our slightly scattered current setup is sucking the fun out of league play. Imagine people in 8 different conferences....

    Except the people who are staying put numbnuts...

    The only fun I could see in a restart is having accurate updated rosters and starting from season 1, but then again I am an Iowa fan and would love to play with this years and future squads

    See for me if I ever turned that shit on, then great... What you get is what you get. You get fired? You get another job and start over again. We would have no conference guidelines, no guaranteed "where do you wanna be later" type teams or anything, I think you either gotta have it on or off, can't compromise.

    Why would we do that? You are lumping two separate issues together.

    Michigan is my optimal choice, but if I get an offer from one of the schools through the carousel I would rather take that in order to keep my coaching stats.

    I would like Penn State, but I'm willing to take any team to accommodate any1 to get in the conference they want.

    yeah I was wondering that, so that will change the dynamic of what to do next. If the majority of people can't get to where they want to be then they may want to stick with CC and roll the dice.

    I'll be LOLing in a month when people say "why did we give bbj fucking Wisconsin?!?".

    If everyone is taking powerhouses I may revisit my Northwestern pick.
