If you add together spasticity and killbatman, I have 10 titles in 153 HD seasons.
I think I'm an "old guy" since I've been here since 2005, but the total seasons look like a "new guy" without playing the 2-a-day worlds or having more than a few teams at a time. I also only play in D3 currently, so there's plenty of people I never cross paths with.
Also I've been way more successful in the new engine (i.e. potential) than the old, whatever that means.
oh damn, you are killbatman too? very impressive. i can't believe how many 10+ title coaches are cropping up. it used to be that everybody had heard of anyone who even got close to 10 titles. in this thread alone, ive found out about a few new ones and a **** ton of 5+ guys, that i had no idea won so many. its kind of a shame, IMO, that people dont talk about this stuff much. when i was a new coach, the coolest thing to me was to hear about rails and OR pulling off their great runs, it really motivated me to know the engine was deterministic enough to do such a thing, and that there were coaches THAT GOOD out there. but its not just the best runs of all time that interested me, i liked hearing about people pulling back to back titles, or a coach getting to 5 championships, its just interesting to see what people are accomplishing. i havent accomplished anything in so long, although mostly for lack of trying, but that doesnt mean i would like to hear about all you guys and the cool **** you do. i think people are afraid to mention some of these things because they dont want to gloat or come off arrogant, but i wish there was a way to get around that and still hear about it. for all the "hey look at this team i lost to, who i should have crushed, although i wrote them off ahead of time and employed a horrible strategy for the opponent" threads, i could sure use some "hey look theres a coach at kansas, i forget which world, but that crazy SOB just pulled off a record setting 7 straight final fours in d1 (which also ties the all time record)". or "Hey look at this program, this coach just won their 4th title in 15 seasons". i like to see those. its nice to know there are still people kicking *** out there. and its a hell of a lot more interesting than the "look at what happened" threads on the forums today. that is why i originally wrote the program to compute HDs longest streaks (most consecutive NT appearances, stuff like that) and the dynasty lists, so people could look and see what the top programs and accomplishments were, and then go look at those teams to see it. but man, i am just so bad at keeping them up to date...
