Need help choosing a team for dynasty mode

I vote none of the above. If you pick one of those teams, after 2 or 3 seasons, even on Heisman level you will dominate the computer so much that it won't even be fun. I think it's a lot more fun to take a crappy school, put it on Heisman, and see what you can do. You have to make sure and schedule enough bad teams to get several wins, though, or you'll get canned. I'm in my 4th year with Stephen F. Austin, who I moved to IA, and I've finally started to build a decent team. It's frustrating, but way more fun than beating the computer 72-14 every game.

I agree with VTHokie32, using the big boys is just too easy in recruiting, and game play at home with the HFA on just destroys the competition. I've used Ok. State, Vanderbilt, Stanford, Iowa State. My suggestion is pick a crappy team from a big conference. Recruiting will be difficult but more realistic then getting 15  star recruits every season like you would with the big schools, and it's pretty cool if you notice how the stands get filled up as you progress the dynsty and make it better and better.
Stephen F. Austin? that sounds like a difficult school to progress, my hats off to you.

no most definitly use the FSU seminoles they have many young players to use in the future also like i said in ur madden thread after the season is up import the draft class for better QB's and other good rookies.

div 2 schools will be real difficult to play with, and I'm pretty sure the other drawback is all stadiums in div 2 look the same, but I haven't used them ever so I'm going on hear say. I look at the list of schools in Div 1, in the 1 or 2 star area as far as prestige so I can have the challenge of building them up. I then look at stadium capacity for teams I am interested in and then look at the team uniform. If I am rebuilding a program and going to be there at least 6 years I have to be able to tolerate the uniform and want to get some of a HFA. I pick teams from big conferences so you are BCS eligible so ACC, Big 12, Big 10, SEC or Pac10 is where I want to play. Big East is BCS eligible but the conference is too weak with the other teams to really give you a good chance at playing for a NC. If you are importing into madden you will find in a short time that all your imported players become superstars and again if you are looking for challenges then it can be a drawback. Some people only do dynsty to import to madden, others do it just for NCAA so it really is dependant on what you want to do and if you want a challenge in recruiting as well as game play
Hope I helped

What I did is I took a double A team (georgia Southern) and moved them to the acc south division. It has taking me 4 years to start getting great scholarships but it is fun and if you are going to make a crappy team good might as well do it with the worst one out there.

Cozcoz, did you move the team manually into the conference or did you have to play a season or 2 and then get invited into the ACC? How difficult was it to play the big boys with the lesser talent?

I started out 06 with Air Force on All-American. I really didn't have to screw with the schedule to much; it was already pretty weak. Before I walked into the season, I practiced the Flexbone like a madman on AA against top notch Ds. I finished the season undefeated in conference and with one loss overall. Recruiting with the academies is actually pretty simple because they're offense is fairly one dimensional. As long as you pick up decent offensive lineman, you're good to go. I agree with you guys; taking C teams and turning them into power houses is fun.
