What world did your son play in? 10-11 seasons in that world means you can get virtually any D2 school there, and if he was D2 when he left then you can get into DIAA schools and those higher divisions have more people in them. Plus you wont have to take over the whipping boy of some D3 conference. Winning is always more fun, no matter how much you crave competition. Yes, all sim conferences are boring, but if you can find a conference with 6 humans then just fill your non conference with humans and you get 8 or 13 games typically as human opponents. Plus 4 gimme sims and the annual WTF sim loss and at least you can enjoy the game a bit instead of being 5-8 at best or 0-13 your first season because you joined an 11 human conference having a full human non conference your frist season.
