    With the recent news it looks like I have to make a call on whether I'm staying in the Deuce or the Experience. I'd like to find out what the goal of this league is going forward so I can make the right decision. It's not a big surprise that I've struggled to meet the 24 hour advance schedule at times this year. I'm typically able to get my games in, but there are times where I need an extra day to knock a game out and from what I experienced this year that can be frowned upon in this league. I imagine my schedule will continue to be hectic over the next year with getting married and everything else so I'm just trying to make the best choice for myself and this league.

    I have really enjoyed being a part of this league. You guys have things pretty well ironed out and this is one of the best run dynasty's I've ever been in. The competitiveness of this league as well as the setup, and the guys here have also made it a great experience. However, since it's NCAA, taking one sim loss a season can be pretty detrimental to team success over a season. I know it's not all about winning but to a point that's what we're all after here. I think you guys know where I'm coming from.

    So I guess what I'm asking is what can I expect from the Deuce in `12? Will it continue to be a hard short advance schedule w/off season nights scheduled at 9pm et or do you guys anticipate things being slightly slower paced next year because there will only be 2 conferences instead of 3? And what advice would you guys give me?

    I wouldnt expect it to slow down...

    If you find the slower pace ( and easier winning ) preferable, no one will blame you.

    Gators,

    In all seriousness, I think you are a good fit here and I'm confident everyone here shares that same opinion. Just want to say that first and foremost.

    You have struggled to keep the advance pace for most of NCAA '11. And I'm not sure how many offseason nights you actually made, but it was probably less than half, lol. With that being said, I don't expect our pace to slow down at all. If that is a deal breaker for you, than no hard feelings at all. We all struggle with balancing our lives and this league. What makes it work is that everyone makes it a priority to get their stuff in for quick advances. There are only so many hours in the day. If you draw a line of the stuff you can do and this league is under that line more often than not, then it's just not worth you participating in. It's not fair to you to have your stuff constantly simmed and it's not fair to the guys who made the effort to get everything in.


    You have to do what you have to do, Gators. If you feel another league is a better fit for you, then that's a decision you have to make for yourself.

    Easy...I've beaten people in this dynasty. Hell, the reason you are in the Deuce is because Basis quit after a devastating loss against me.
