I'm qualified for 45 D1 jobs and a longshot for 28 (and seemingly longshot is a nice(r) way of say not qualified).  There are 11 D- jobs that I'm "not qualified" for.

Again tarvolon, I'm not sure what kind of jobs you're looking for, but I'm talking strictly about D- jobs.  I'm not the best coach, but I'm no slouch either...not great with the Xs and Os, but I can recruit pretty well.  I've earned the right to coach D1 in Knight.  The fact that WIS would rather have sims coach D- jobs than humans is rather mind boggling.

I have no complaint that I'm not qualified for jobs in Knight. I haven't been in Knight long enough to qualify for them. Just making a point that we shouldn't automatically make people qualified for jobs just because they want them and might quit if they aren't qualified for them. This is clearly a bad idea. But the idea you have about being automatically qualified for all 56 D- jobs as soon as you qualify for the first 45 is not necessarily a bad idea. I wouldn't hate it if it were implemented, but I honestly don't see the force behind your call for it. How many people are going to quit because they're qualified for Boise State but not Portland? Maybe a handful of Portland alums, if we have any. I know most of us have preferences for some low-level D1 jobs over others, but if we're at the point to have preference (and not just out of loyalty to the alma mater), we're probably also at the point where we understand that it'll only take one more good year in D2 to get there. And so we don't quit, we buckle down and do our damndest to make the tournament in D2.

Getting a job at D2 and getting a job at D1 are 2 incredibly different circumstances...you know that.  You're eligible for every job at D2.

Also, just because "it's the same" at D2, doesn't mean that it's a sound format.

This isn't true...I've seen some D2 jobs that I was not qualified for when I was qualified for most others

Yes it is.  Certainly there are better resumes, but hell, I should have been eligible after 60.  I got a bad draw in the NT in season 61, but again, I took a C- to an A-, 3 NT appearances in 5 years, with a PI...ranked 14th at the end of season 61...D1 all day
6/26/2013 9:52 PM
I'm sorry, but that's just not a very good resume.  Your team this past season was very strong.  No argument there.  However, 3 NT's (all first round exits), a PI (first round exit), and a losing season right in the middle of your last five... It doesn't seem weird to me that a lot of schools would like to see a little more success.

This past season was my "one last season" to make D1...I am not staying at D2 another season, I already have a D2 team.  I shouldn't have to waste money on an extra season to make up for a poor/bad system.

2 consecutive NTs always seems to do the trick...I don't know what you're griping about.  Certainly I wish I would have won some NT games, but it wasn't to be.

More whining from colonels. Figures. If you had more success in the NT you wouldn't feel the need to complain about what D- teams you are qualified for.
The problem with you is that you haven't the mental capacity to see HD from a business point of view, so the last thing I'm going to do is even attempt to listen to someone whose main goal is to remove paying customers from the game.  Go row your boat somewhere, Gilligan...
So WIS should cater to the dumbass who can't understand that all D- prestiges aren't created alike?

There's also a baseline prestige element involved where you can be qualified for a C school with a D baseline, but not a D+ school with a B- baseline. I saw thought when I was trying to get an A10 school.

If you spent less time being a forum troll and more on your teams, you might find a way to get the team you want. You pouting isn't going to get the job done.

So you're saying/suggesting my resume isn't D1 worthy?

Btw, am I missing something or have you not played D1 before?

Dude, I get that there are at least 3 degrees of a third of a letter grade (given the evidence that I presented), but it's absolutely ridiculous.  To be a longshot for a D and not qualified for a D- is laughable.  I know you're a rules/yes sir kind of guy, so you're not intelligent enough to think for yourself or outside the box at all, what the rules say, goes...and that's your downfall as has been shown in many facets of this game.

I didn't need to spend any more time on my teams than what I did, they got the attention and care that they needed and deserved.

I am surprised that record qualifies one for any DI jobs. Never out of the first round? I say make some Elite 8's or Final 4's, then you might have the right to beat your chest if not dubbed "Qualified" for all D- jobs. My two cents.

At best, you should only qualify for the worst D1 jobs. It's SO easy to make the NT. 0-4 in D2 postseason? Honestly, that screams mediocre D2 coach. If you're going to be average, you need more than a couple years of doing it.
6/26/2013 10:51 PM
It looks like you are only qualified for the lower end D- schools.  The schools that were D-'s before the last season.  What's your problem with that?   You need to see the numeric value of the D-?
