Posted by caesari on 5/22/2012 9:27:00 PM (view original):The 25/25 thing sounds good on paper but isn't as sound as what I have at Hiram. With that method, you would never utilize redshirts. With the way I have it at Hiram, I recruit 3 guys who redshirt into the large classes. Every other year I basically recruit 3 then 20.

That 50 team is impressive. I think the best set up I have seen was a year or so ago a DIII team had 25 SR and 25 SO. Forgot who that was though ha
That 50 man team is overkill in this engine tbh. I think in the old engine where stamina mattered more, that team model makes a lot more sense.
So at Hiram you redshirt every season, or just when you recruit 3 players?
I redshirt 3 every year. Here is how it breaks down...
Year 1- Recruit 3...redshirt all.
Year 2- Recruit 21...redshirt 3.
Year 3- Recruit 3...redshirt all.
Year 4- Recruit 20...redshirt 3.
Year 5- Recruit 3...redshirt all.
If you plan on doing anything where you use redshirts, then you need to think of recruiting in 5 year cycles basically...or your roster being 47 guys. As you can see by the plan above, the Year 2 class is still 21 guys, BUT 3 are now redshirted into the class and put the other 3 redshirted from Year 2 into Year 3's class...and so on and so forth. So on your big year, you have 3 Srs*, 17/18 Srs, and 3 Jrs*...or 23-24 players with 4 or more years of experience...plus 3 more with 3 years.
