I mean..I can get the logic behind. For instance, if the benefit of IQ is up to 5% bonus or 5% penalty to attributes and you can use the extra individual to get 10% more out of your attributes, then logically it makes sense that it is useless at DIII particularly when you recruit above average and high potential recruits. I just don't know enough of the math to know if its true or not.
Pretty Simple. If you have a DIII player with an average of 50 in his cores, then his abilities will increase 2.5 points, maximum. However, since the IQ growth is so small, people rarely get out of the "no penalty" range.
Another way to consider it...
With no practice you are looking at a 2.5 point penalty, maximum. However, allocating additional points allocated to most attributes for players in DIII will result in 2 - 5 ponits growth per season (depending on WE and POTS).
On the other hand, in D1AA and D1 where cores can average between 80 - 90 points, the IQ advantage is inflated to a maximum of around 8 or 9 points. If you invest wisely, that is VERY useful in D1AA or D1, IMO.
