Thanks. Almost half of those E8s have been with my first team (Maryville), where I just completed my 10th season (so I guess I've been here 450 days. One-a-day seasons are 45 days, right?). I have noticed as I get more teams, I pick up more tidbits about the game a lot faster, but I also have a harder time bearing down and optimizing the heck out of one team. Maryville just had our worst season in quite a while. But I certainly hope I can build on this and do big things going forward.
It actually took me 13 seasons (spread out over three worlds, so I guess that's more than six months) to win my first NT game. And when I broke through, bizarrely enough, it was as a 16-seed (Whitworth in Naismith) that got underseeded because I had too many conference mates in the tournament. Ended up losing in OT in the Sweet Sixteen that year.
