    I think switching to a 2 conference setup will create more rivalries therefore creating more activity. The problem i see arising is the big 12 north will be hard to fill as the best available team is :2stars:. Facing the likes of Texas, OU, Nebraska, and even Missouri it will be a very steep uphill Battle. What are your guys thoughts on making the move? I know Slick and recchem said they are ok with moving(slick to miami and recchem to TAMU).

    I can take one of the spots in the North. I like Colorado a bit and wouldnt mind playing with them. Would make it easier to fill the open spot in the South rather than some crappy team in the North. Can I take some of my LSU players with me [​IMG]

    I've got the time for a 4 team Big 12 South but I don't know if Nik does. Okie lite and TT are serviceable programs. I think this is a great idea.

    I am assuming we are having a Big 12, ACC conference duel. I think it will work. At the moment the ACC feels kinda blah without additional users. lilmaggie and I decide one division, while aarondramp and Hokie decide the other division. Maybe it will get more competitive if we have other teams battle it out. I know Miami is probably salvageable, I don't know if the other 4 teams in my division are.

    I'm indifferent. I like it the way it is but if everyone wants to change that's cool 2.

    I like the idea of 2. It would be good to have two more teams in the ACC.

    I'll jump on the grenade and take Big 12 North team, what the hell. Unless you want to have 4 in the south and just stick to you and Mo in the North. Either, Im game for changing to 2 conferences. I hate to leave my talented HB's but im cool with it.

    I wouldn't be opposed to you staying at LSU. You could play 3-4 user vs user games in your non conference slate against the Big XII. With a northern team it would be really tough to be competitive and you've built up a nice team at LSU and we've had some nice battles.

    Or you could just move LSU into the Big 12 North and that would solve that! I wouldnt be opposed to that at all. At this point, I dont care if our conferences are real or not.

    I don't think you can make custom conferences after the dynasty has started but that would be sick if you could.

    I think nikpin is right. The only time you can move teams into different conferences is at the start of a new dynasty.

    The other option would be to move people in the ACC or Big 12 to the SEC. Make it a Big 12-SEC league or ACC-SEC league. I know that it would require more people changing teams but it's an option.

    I dont think Hokie is going to leave VT and nik and Dylan aren't leaving UT and OU. I have no problem leaving. Just let me know where you want me. I'll bite the bullet and take the North team if I have to.

    OK slick i believe you said you wanted Miami(or you can take any ACC) so you can move there now if you want to get a jump on recruiting or after the season..

    We will just set up a 4 team div in the big 12 S...so Recchem you can take any big 12 S team...

    Go ahead and switch me over to Miami, so I can really look over the roster and maybe grab a few late season and offseason recruits.
