Just got my first NT championship last week at Piedmont in D3 Tarkanian. I've been playing this game for close to a decade and I had always just been playing along without ever really digging too deep. I never really thought it was overly interesting, but just kept playing as something to do. Then about two years ago I really started digging deep into the game, reading a ton of forum information, messaging with other coaches, etc. Once I jumped full on into the deep end the game became so much more interesting, and my success level started to improve. I've felt like I've been doing pretty good over the past handful of seasons, but that championship run really solidified it.
