Derek, you've got 5 seasons on your resume, only one season that was any good, no NT wins, and an overall losing record. Honest answer, you've got a lot of work to do. A bunch. Don't be in such a hurry to get to D1, as you said there are plenty of openings. D1 is a whole different animal than D2/D3. Learn the game first, then put what you learn into forming a competitive team. Get yourself familiar with the ratings and what they really mean, how they really work. Patience grasshopper.
