It wouldn't be, but it would be incorporated (realistically, it would be random) in the guy's starting IQ and max IQ. Not saying all of those things should even be attributes, but just that they should be the kinds of things being thought about in the idea of making IQs more variable both at the starting point and potential peak.
Maybe it'll help sales in France.
I've made the suggestion several times about a player having a "hard cap" on their IQ's also. Doesn't make a bit of sense to me that we have a player's ratings limited by potential, yet every single player (excepting, of course, the very low work ethic guys) can be made to reach an A+ IQ by their senior season. Ratings are no longer linear, why should IQ remain that way?
As Etta said in a different post, some guys just "get it" at an earlier age and some guys "never" get it. So why should everyone with a reasonable WE be able to max out their IQ's? Change IQ's to also incorporate potential with a hard cap on how high they can go and you'll get a whole lot more variability in the game than we have now.
You want to recruit that stud who also happens to be a dumbass? Well, get ready for his IQ to top out at a B-. Or maybe the not quite as athletically gifted brainy kid whose IQ WILL go to an A+? Decisions, decisions, decisions....
