Posted by milwood on 5/23/2013 7:04:00 PM (view original):I don't have a D1 team either, but they seem extremely related. Suppose we implement this idea, and all the BCS conference jobs get filled up, some with slightly underqualified candidates who would not have gotten it under the current logic. Also suppose that, as now, it's nearly impossible it get fired. Then instead of a couple good jobs being run into the ground by Sims, waiting for a good person to take them over, the same jobs are filled, and when a good person finally gets qualified, there are no jobs open.

Not sure I'd be on board with this idea.......but if it were to happen I think the firing logic would have to be improved first.
Some of the best ideas are the ones that just seem logical. Good idea
I think this is a fabulous idea, but I think any change in the hiring or firing logic needs to be accompanied by a change in the other. They're linked too closely
tarvolon nails my sentiment pretty close here.
In my book an under-qualified human coach is better for the game than a Sim. That doesn't mean the under-qualified human is the best option LONG TERM, however.
The firing logic would need to be upgraded so that poorly performing coaches get shown the door much faster, freeing up jobs for potentially stronger coaches to step in and create that element of competition for positions.
I'll even go a step further. A coach getting a job based on a school "relaxing" its hiring standards should be held on a tighter leash and be more susceptible to being fired from the position than a coach who met a school's primary criteria (at least until they do something at the school, at which point they should be graded on the same standard as any other coach would be at the school...what that "something" is can be debated and I'll make no suggestion here).
I like the OP's idea in general concept, but I do think it needs tied into a firing logic that doesn't essentially grant squatter's rights to anyone making the post-season once in 'x' number of years.
