I used to think D2 was the better game, but after playing D1 for a while I have come to respect the level for what it is. It's about patience, it's about taking risks, and team building is probably the most important skill. You have to know what players you can sign and who has the potential to become great. You can battle at D2 for recruits, but nothing compares to recruiting in D1 with all the posturing and the attention to detail that is required not to make a mistake. Even with all the money big 6 conferences earn - all coaches do not manage it properly and when that happens you have to pay attention so you know when to make a move. I don't think D2 is better, it's a simpler game and it should be - it's D2.
