We have rolled over once again. Who's in? Who's out? Who are the favorites to keep an early eye on? Who would you like to smack talk to and throw a cup of gasoline on your favorite Rupp HD rivalry. (Hey Sim AI, your mother was a Commodore 64!)

I like the looks of the JDub squad returning.  We should be a little better than last season I think. 

In particular watch out for Walter White's younger brother.  He is the danger.  Former JUCO, fresh off a Redshirt.  He's already A-/B- in our sets, and still blue Def/Per.

I think Millsaps will be significantly improved, returning all 12 players from a 20-9, NT second round squad.  Hoping to compete for a title this year, but not sure I have quite enough (let's be real - Millsaps has never had quite enough.... ).  I am sure there are some other great teams out there returning lots of players, or just a juco or two away....

Not a very bold prediction......  The Baldwin-Wallace Music Majors will make the NT this year.    I don't know how we are going to put the biscuit  in the basket but we are going to play some smothering defense in our 3-2 Amoeba Swarm Defense.

Richard Hunnicutt "Cheerios"
"El Presidente" Roosevelt Barrientos
and
William "Pass the Bong" Spalding

Will lead the charge!

As I said before, I will be starting the SotD again this season. If you ever see an interesting stat, please send me a sitemail. This will save me some time, and it could be more interesting than the one that I would find. Good luck everyone this season!
4/23/2014 12:55 PM
sooooo Bullman.... what's my coaching rating?!  Or is it secret?

And why do we care about MLA's new coach?  Not familar with him.
4/23/2014 1:02 PM
Reigny has a 0.291 winning percentage in over 12,000 HD games.  

Your coach rating is 30.09, 8th highest in Rupp D3.  I would not put a lot of stock in that number, there are some significant holes in the formula but it was the best I could come up with without having to do a ton of manual calculations.
4/23/2014 1:08 PM
Am I #1 or #2 on the coaches ratings? I know I was #1 last time if we had discounted games played on seasons in progress.

Why is that important to me? Because Kenyon still stinks! But we shouldn't be a pushover this season!!!

Pretty much a who's who of people who kick my tail in every world.

I've always wondered why WIS doesn't have a 'coach rating' as part of HD.  I've never played the sim leagues, but I think I saw that listed in some/all of those games.  Seems like an easy enough thing to add.

It blows me away how MUCH that person has played several different WIS games, and just had no success at all.  It's almost like they lose on purpose...but why would you pay so much money to do that??  Head scratcher.

Scanned the returning team rankings. Mill saps returns everyone and could have a team defense rating in the seventies by season end depending on unfilled potential. Foo fighter has a good crew at Hamline that brings them all back as well.

I knew I liked you, bullman :) Thanks!
