For filtering players based on rank, would you want a single setting that filters across all positions or a separate filter per position?
for d1 teams, you really probably just want a general filter, like, filter out any recruits ranked better than 25 (the opposite of the way filters usually work). for high end d1 teams, you wouldn't use it. for d2 teams, you probably would start with the general filter, and then as soon as you got some phone call responses back, you'd probably set the filters by position.
i guess i like to be able to control things, and i play d2 as well as d1, so i would prefer all positions. i am aware the more you add, the more confusing it seems, and the more you have to set up for each team. but if its under that nifty little hidden filter section, i think i wouldn't be bad. but im curious what other d2 coaches think. probably half the people who would use the tool, maybe more, would have a d2 team. only a third or so of teams are d2, but tons of people have multiple teams. i can't see non d2ers wanting it by position, but i might be missing something...
while i remember it, i wanted to add, it might be cool to import a setup, but not recruits. when i went to add a new team, i wanted the same equations, so i copied them to notepad, then opened the new team, and copied it all in. entering that info for every new season is really not bad, so its definitely not that important, but wanted to throw it out there :)
