Switching Schools NEW RULE/CRITERIA Switching Schools General: - You must stay at each school for a minimum of 4 seasons (replacing all players with your own.) - You may leave earlier than 4 seasons if you have: Won Coach of the Year (awarded from game) Won the National Championship Reached/won the conference championship in 3 of 4 seasons (obviously, would have to be the first 3 seasons.) - Coaches leaving will take turns picking teams based off of their success. Success (and first pick) will be determined by Conference Titles Won Win/Loss Record (%) User vs User Record (%) - Moves must be made to a conference where there is another member. 4 user vs user games will still be required if possible. - All moves will take place after the bowl games. Schools you can switch to: - You must switch to a school atleast 2 stars less than the prestige of the school you are leaving. - For every extra star/year above the school you want to switch to, you are able to replace a more successful coach.

What conference? - w/ a conference championship: SEC, Big 12, or ACC 1. At this point, the SEC is definitely too prestigious for us to move to, and there aren’t enough jobs open. 2. The Big 12 will be a tough one to move to as well, because it is so heavily dominated by the South. However, we could make that work with 3 users in the North, and either 1 or no users in the South division. 3. The ACC looks like it could work. It's a little more balanced, and depending on how the team's do there could be multiple openings.

Big East is doable, but the teams are very good prestigious wise. 2. Big 10 is my favorite. There are quality teams to pick from, there are great teams to play, and spots open. (I think this is going to be the best bet if we have 3+ people looking to move.) 3. I feel the same way about the Pac 10 as I do about the Big East, but wouldn’t definitely put this above the Big East.

Navy and Army are both 1 star programs. The user could either join a conference as soon as offered (offline), or remain independent and schedule against the rest of the dynasty. Summary: (please read, it took me a little over an hour to post this) I took everyone’s opinions into consideration when coming up with this, and I like what I am left with. I know some of you are going to be disappointed that I changed the ruling to 4 seasons at each school, but I still made it possible to leave early. On deciding which coaches to replace, I just went with the simple solution of whether or not they had a .500 record because you can’t really keep track of their bowl records, conference titles, etc. I think this is going to work fine if know tries to find loop holes. It is going to make things very interesting, because we will be keeping track of how other schools and seeing which coaches are on the hot seat! I’d prefer that for now, people move to the Big 10, Pac 10, or Big East. Then, maybe the next switch we can move into the SEC or Big 12. However, the Big 12 can still be a possibility in our first move. I am willing to make additional changes. What does everyone think? edit: I would also like to say that while 4 seasons may seem like forever, I forsee the dynasty speeding up once we get further into winter.
