that's good advice zsap. Although there isn't much difference in coaching and recruiting from d2 to d3 (IMO), the level of coach you face at d2 is higher. After playing this game for about one year, I run teams at both divisions and have better results at d3.
As far as "mastering" this game, I think the only coach that will claim that is jfootball88.
No offense, jfootball
