D1 is pretty much a stagnate game in that if you are not a total superior coach you are stuck in mediocrity. The BCS schools dominate and the openings are usually out of the reach of just the good coaches. With the desk stacked against you its just better to play in D2.
Perfect description of why D1 is no fun after a while. I would rather the elite qualifications be dropped so "good" Coaches could qualify, and have the firing time at the elite level increased so if you are good, you had better perform, or be fired. I see this as a way of making the HD Game fresh for the most of us. All we want is a sniff at an elite.
It is no different from RT where a Coach with a good record get the chance every once in a while, but he had better perform for the boosters!
