One of the beautiful things about this game though, is the fact they could possibly make the playoffs within 3 seasons. 3 good recruiting classes and they'd be on their way. Any team can be turned around, and fairly quickly. Especially at DIII.
This. I took over D3 Carleton in Wilkinson and its owner had abbandoned many seasons before and was on around a 100 game loss streak when I took it. All players were AC signings, the worst kind. Also it appeared as though no practice plan had ever been set as all players showed a negative rating when I signed on. Vision was awful of course. This was the worst team I had ever seen.
My 1st season I won 1 game. I was surprised to win any. 2nd I won 9 and was competitive. 3rd and 4th I won the CC and went to the PO's. Lost the 1st rounder both times but still a pleasing turn around.
My only regret was leaving Carleton after that 4th season as I believe that team could have very well competed for an NC. It is just sim now.
