    My fault Oh Lord... Thank you! The amount of time this game soaks up is staggering. Once you get it running though, you're good to go:

    Congratulations Finwad32 ! It's a really cool feeling that first title! Get out now though, or you are bound to find the years you don't win one feeling empty!

    I moved over to some other worlds and have been giving the "greats" fits! I've stolen 4 D2 trophies and 5 D1AA trophies. And I just put together a season that I don't believe I will ever match again in D1AA. I played the toughest strength of schedule in the world and the closest score came in the championship game, 89 -30.

    This game is crazy fun for me.

    I knew you had a different handle on the game. I've been able to beat the best guys with my 2 teams in Stagg, and you always housed me. Congrats man!

    Congrats. That game was a good time but I'm glad to have the hours back.

    If you really want to dive deeper, send me a PM. I'll have you competing with any and everyone. But I apologize if I stole any of the luster off your first Championship! Congrats man! It's really awesome to get over that hump!

    I love game and truthfully spend zero time at home on it. I play it during my mini-breaks throughout the day at work.

    Totally understand, but other than recruiting, it really doesn't consume as many hours as many think. I spend maybe 30 mins a day on there actually running my team. But I have invested a lot more time than that into understanding how it all works. I'm always a bonehead when it comes to learning, so I don't like to take a lot of direction and instead like to trial-and-error learn things. But I have no doubt that I could have any of you all winning consistently with a season worth of walking you through how to do it.

    RF2044 - Did you just return to Rockne and take the Syracuse job?

    It's been a while since I've posted around here, but I thought I'd happily announce that in the Warner world I took over Syracuse and won the National Championship recently, my first at the D1A level. Anyone still playing?

    I went up in a couple other leagues but have since left them. I'm still running Utica in Stagg though, lol, never could let that one go.

    I probably would have stuck with it if I could have figured out how to be successful at it...

    If you ever change your mind, let me know and I can try to help. I currently stand at 21 championships in 118 seasons, so I think I have a pretty good grasp at this point.

    I have thought about getting back into it. You just play football, correct?

    Any help you can provide would be appreciated...

    Yeah, I only play football. I used to play in the basketball leagues, but it became too much to manage both. PM me your email address and I'll send you some stuff. Always around to answer questions.

    What level can you access? Finwad loves the D3 level, but I do not. You don't have as much control as you do at the D1, D1AA or D2 levels. If you can grab a team at one of those levels I can be of much more help.

    I think I am going to start off in D3 for a season or two, to get my feet wet again...then probably move up after.

    What should I look for in a team?

    If you're looking at Rockne, take South-Sewanee. Good roster and located in Tennessee, so you're in an area with access to a good deal of talent. Finwad32 could provide more color on D3 in general, but I believe talent is the most important factor at that level because customization of the schemes are much more limited.

    Yeah...was looking at them...Gridiron Dynasty

    QB is coming back...

    Good looking Jr RB

    Will take a hit on the WRs

    TE, OL, DL and LB look good

    Looks like my weak area would be WRs...will be a young group...but with some potential...

    Looks like they have been running I, Pro and Trips...and on Defense they are 4-3, 4-4 and Nick...
