that was good for a laugh, i have to admit. im overall in the, let fred do what he wants camp, but seble should step in and make sure division hoppers can't take and wreck all the high prestige schools (which is what happens, over and over and over, when you let someone do it). 3rd school in a division, in 15 seasons, you get B prestige or worse. something simple like that so it doesn't take up much of his time. people have been against this kind of hopping for longer than ive been coaching here, its fine to let people do it, but it BLOWS when one of those guys gets a team over you. maybe even make them wait for new coach sign ups, if they want a new team in the same division for a 3rd time or more. then, nobody would care. any human coach who is actually there is better than a sim!

All I want to say about this thread is that if anybody accuses me of being Fred (or vice versa) I will go home and smash my fingers with a hammer.

Agreed CBG.  What I think ****** people off the most about certain coaches is not that they hop from team to team, cherrypicking the best squads (although that does get old pretty quickly).  It's when they brag about their "accomplishments" when virtually none of the players that they used for their "accomplishments" were recruited by them.  These guys play within the parameters of the game, nothing about what they are doing is wrong per se, but the fact that they pat themselves on the back and act as if "they" are the ones who actually did something is really laughable at best and kind of pathetic at worst.  Winning with an inherited team is one thing (at least give credit where credit is due), but winning with your OWN players is a much more impressive feat in most people's eyes.

Impossible... look at how long you've been at Wisconsin, Oshkosh!

winning is always great but  with your own players is way more enjoyable

Stuck in mediocrity.  At least I have two PIT titles! (back to back no less).  In 3 years I haven't figured out how to win the big ones.  Reminds me of a real life coach from Wisconsin.

(ECC) backboy, your comments about me on my conference board is not appreciated by me. Mind your own business please. You play the sim the way you want and I'll play the way I want. If you have a problem with it then you can shove it.

(ECC) by the way boy and knuckle, I didn't ask for your distasteful commments about my coaching. If you want to start something then schedule me anytime. I have not problem going up against coaches that are good but like to mess.

(Penn. St.) our comments are factual, yours are simply rude... the only reason i came here was to back up a conference mate of mine (something i doubt that yours would do considering that you'll probably be gone at the end of next season)

drama, that'll get the board going anytime - I love that this conf has 3 of the top 10 winningest DII coaches with 99% of those coming from coaching one team. PSAC rocks!

(ECC) ...after every season is no business of yours. Keep your butt where it belongs. This league has a problem when it has to go after another coach in another league. Enjoy your season men. This ends it with me. Bunch of snipers.

definitely struck a chord with fred. Simply suggested he stay with the same team for 6-7 years and see what happens. My guess is it wouldn't go well. He didn't like the challenge. Does spice things up though:)

(ECC) Thanks for all the action on our board! Good way to spice things up! Think that is the most discussion we have had on our board in the 22 seasons I have been in the ECC, haha.
Up to his old tricks, I see.

well, as long as this is back, in Rupp, after jumping in conference from Bloomfield to A prestige Felician, coach spent a grand total of 3 seasons, dropping the prestige to a B- before jumping to the west coast to grab A prestige CSU Bakersfield (dropped to an A- when he grabbed it.)

at least he's already warned them he's not staying long

to my fellow coaches in this league: yes, I hope not to be in this league for a long period of time. My goal is to get to a D1 school. That means winning in this league. If any of you have a problem with it, I'm ok with it. Your job is to win also. ...

Poor poor Queens.  They miss me there.

How the heck is he supposed to get to D1 with all that job hopping?

He won't go to D1, he'll stay there a couple of seasons and then lateral to another D2 school.  Really, really wish Seble would increase the loyalty hit for coaches that lateral like this and then make loyalty count even more than it does in the job process if a coach IS attempting to lateral like he does.  It's a joke.
