    OK, this is the place.

    We're considering a move to four conferences. This move will only happen if:
    1. We get enough interest, and
    2. If no one gets "forced" to do anything
    Do us a favor and post your intentions. Give us the what ifs "For example, if Goose moves out of OSU, I would move there, and open up my Irish, who are going to be sweet" so we know what you would consider, what you really want, and what would not be good for you. I don't want anyone doing anything "for the good of the league." If you don't really want it, don't get yourself into a bad spot. If we don't get the movement, then we don't make the move. That would not be a bad thing at all. Consider this an experiment, nothing more.

    That is the only move I would really go for. Any other situation, and I would remain at Notre Dame.

    I could move to either the Golden Domers or Nebraska. If 2 other guys go to the Big XII then I'll go to Nebraska, if not I'll go to Notre Dame. Either way you can have the Buckeyes next season.

    Cool. The Irish will be pretty solid, so I won't feel any guilt about it. I'd really like someone to end up as the Irish. I just like having them in the league, and they really help with scheduling.

    Arch' and I had been discussing a move that would put me at ND, and I was starting to warm up to it. That squad is built extremely well. Now that Goose is excited for the move, however, I'm inclined to stay where I am. I'm presently in great position to add a 6th star, so it could be a lot of fun.

    I would like to move to Texas or we don't end up opening up the Big XII then I would like to take over at Florida.

    They'll be an interesting squad. I have them set up to play a pro style, and there's a couple of things you should know so no promises get broken. Other than that, they should be good to go.

    So far, the changes discussed (Easy to LSU, Goose and I switching) could happen without a new conference being added. Not sure if it will stay that way, but that's how it looks at the moment.

    Also, with 11 teams, we have a gap in the SEC East, so there's a bit of movement allowed there, also. If anyone wants to round out the SEC, there's an opening.

    I'm sure one or the other would be just fine. Let's see what the other guys say.

    Didn't what's his name talk about leaving Florida State for South Carolina? The only thing that would suck for me is that in seasons where I play GT, I'd have my 3 user games locked in from the start. I'd be tempted to (kindly) suggest that a 4th user game be added ...

    I would prefer to stay at Bama, but might consider a move to OU.

    Goose, I was using you as an excuse to stay where I am. Darn you for calling me out on it! ; )

    Goose, did you actually lose to Loogy-ville, or was that a sim defeat?

    It was simmed. My loss may just set things right, since he deserved a shot.

    I figured that was the case. Buckeyes will be tough to beat in the BCS.

    I'd love to take over South Carolina if at all possible. That would open up FSU with a decent recruiting class.

    I'm tough against the CPU but very beatable in a user game.

    Let's see if I can put this together. I think we have:
    That about right? If so, it looks like we stay in three conferences. We cool with that?

    AG, that looks good except we would have an opening on the GTech side of the ACC. FSU and Clemson are in the same division.
