Ok so last season, as previously stated, we had a full conference of 12 people. However, due to some coaches thinking they would have success right away and not wanting to rebuild a team(which may be the best thing to do!) we lost 6 coaches. Here are the 6 remaining teams:
I believe the owner is coming back to claim this team, he told me that he forgot to renew and would pick them back up as soon as he could. However if that falls through.. they do have their top guy returning but will have 7 open schollies next season and will be a great opportunity for you to rebuild a team and put in whatever offense/defense you want. That will be a perfect opportunity for you to rebuild a team the way YOU want to. This team was above .500 last season so you will not be eligible for the money(look at the 5th post in the thread about prize money).

This team could be very good next season. They are only losing one player and the guy couldn't play defense if his life depended on it. He was the PG but had awful defense and his BH was mediocre at best and not a great shooter by any means so not too big of a loss. Lol but anyways 4 juniors, 2 sophomores and a solid class of 5 freshman. From what I heard from the previous coach, they all have a lot of High-High categories so they will be a good class and no need to recruit a lot the first year. So if you wanna win some money this would be the team to do that with because they were under .500 last season. You can use that 1 schollie for a JUCO to make the team better and boom! Some serious money could be made here! I highly suggest YOU should take over this team if you don't feel like recruiting a lot right out of the get-go and wanna win a lot.

Not a big recruiter?? Well this is the team for you! They have everyone back next season and the season after that, you only have to recruit one guy. This is not the kind of team that you would want if you wanted to start making it your own right away and doesn't seem like it would win that much the first season. Due to that, if you take them over next season and stay a second season, I will offer the same deal with prize money and bump it up to $6! Hows that sound!? The freshman from last season are all pretty good, they have great defense too! There are 5 of them and in 3 more seasons that could be a great squad! This could potentially be the better teams and YOU can possibly have the chance to make more cash than you would with any other team!

The top 2 players will be leaving but you will have 3 open schollies. There will be 4 juniors, 3 sophomore and 2 freshman so the classes are pretty spaced out which is great for being a contender year in and year out! If you don't like the offense/defense they run, you can still change it, I would just suggest running the current offense/defense while practicing a new scheme. They do have a solid class from last year. One of the freshman is already a 506! This team could be very good in 3 more seasons along with YOUR first class this season. They too were under .500 last season so they are eligible for the money too. They also had a HOF coach last season so the recruits must be pretty damn good! This could, due to the spread out classes, a major D3 power! All the top schools have even classes and starting this next season, YOU will be able to raise your prestige right away and possibly win some money!

Now this is an interesting situation. Up until last season, they hadn't had a a coach for 8 seasons. However, they have a beast sophomore class coming back! Including a 602! Click on the link and check him out, he's pretty good! I knew the past owner so the Freshman still have a lot of highs and each look pretty decent already! This team was also under .500 and with that sophomore class coming back, you have a big chance to win some money! This team will be very solid over the next two seasons and YOU will have 3 schollies next season to recruit and make that team even better for the next 2 seasons!

Basically the same idea as the team above. Except only losing 2 players and have 8 sophomores. Thats a big group and the next 2 seasons they could really go to work! They too were under .500 so you can win some money! That is definitely possible for next season! The freshman are ok but i know the owner and he ghosted at times last season and he told me her never got around to doing the practice plan so that is why they didn't progress as well. This team could be a monster in 2 seasons with the right coach and then your rebuild would begin. So it presents an opportunity in which your prestige will raise a tremendous amount over the next 2 seasons right in time for your first big class! Trust me having a B or B- prestige will give you much better recruits over a C- prestige. So this may be the BEST situation for YOU to be successful and have an elite team.
