This is getting ridiculous. Yesterday, I received the following email from George King (DL). His we also fell 23 points.
 
Coach, this may not mean a lot to you, but well, I'm pretty much a laughing stock around campus - I told everyone that they I'd play. No way would have I done that if you hadn't promised it to me. All the laughing sure makes it hard to concentrate and work hard during practice.
 
The problem is that he has started every game. Furthermore, here are his game logs for the season:

Throw out USF because that game was started after I received the email. However, he has played over 80% of the plays in the three games prior to this email. They really need to change the promises calculations when I am getting hits from players under these circumstances, IMO.

What did you have promised to him? Just starts?
11/27/2012 4:24 PM
My question too...what did you promise him?
11/27/2012 4:29 PM
It looks like you promised him PT (75%?) as well, since his letter says 'play' and not 'start'.  He only had 10% PT in the first game; since he just made it to 76% after today's game (and that's a rounded number), he's been below the 75% level you promised for the entire season.

I promised 75%.  Here is the explination  I got from support:

He is complaining about his playing time but as long as he keeps playing as much as he has in the recent games he will be fine. When a player is promised playing time he expects to play that much time in each game, not an average. He complained because of the early game with low playing time and one other where he was slightly below, though it was a late complaint.

I don't see the problem.  You didn't keep your promise, his WE dropped.
