Any player's attributes are always being modified by tech, fatigue (stamina), game IQ, athl, the game plan, GI, for each play. If on a certain play a lessor player hits a combo of improved comp #'s due to these and a better player hits a lower set of comp #'s then the lesser player may make a big play. BUT on any one, individual play if these comp #'s are 10%+ higher for one player the other player was just outmatched and should lose. What I hear you saying Coach Billy Deen - is that regardless of the difference in values between the two players, the lesser player should always have a chance to make up that talent difference just - oh well - just because? So to carry this further, any 500 rated team should be able to knock off a 650 rated team - just because it possibly could happen in real life? And any coach with an average team should win a NC just because it COULD happen? So no matter how well I recruit and manage my team, there should always be the chance that any other lesser coached team could knock me off just beacuse? Let's just give every team a NC every year and make it so no one wins more than anyone else. If I can't beat someone every game with my better players and better team - why play the game?
