It seems to me that the coaching eligibility is too tight.  A human coach is always preferable to a SIM.  I am in a couple of mid-major conferences and we actively try to recruit new coaches to join us.  It is frustrating when are recruiting efforts are rewarded by the applicants being turned down.  I think the sim teams should always take the best human applicant that applies.  What do you guys think?

I would agree that 99.99% of the time a human coach is preferable to a Sim coach, but that 0.01% the rest of the time the human coach is named Reigny.  Those familiar with his "resume" will understand exactly what I mean.

Ahahaha. How true.

Is he still an active coach.  I'm in 5 worlds and the name does not ring a bell.

I completely agree with this, and further, for those who didn't read it the first time I said it...once you qualify for D1, you should always be qualified for at least 1 D1 job, even if it's the worst job available.

I've always wondered what this guys deal is.  An account used for cheating?

Firings would have to be amped way up

Taco I agree ... the hook would need to be sharpened as a result but I believe that would be a fair trade off and would make the paying customers happier with increased mobility.

LOLOL. Don't hate on him too much, he boosted both of our winning percentages quite a bit. 

I do think it's absurd that being a D1 coach you can get turned down for another D1 job in favor of the sim AI. I can understand the engine not favoring every user coach over a sim, simply because then you can have a first year D3 coach getting some C presitge BCS school, which obviously is not how the system should work. But I would think a coach that has had a couple of winning season at a crappy prestige D1 school should not be getting turned down to a C prestige BCS school in favor of the Sim AI.
