I am all for upsets, but it should never be a situation where the human team in harris' situation fails to show up at all. Upsets happen in the late part of the game, rarely will a Rice walk into Oklahoma and be up by 21 at half. Its the normalization that is killing both the engines. The upsets happen in the 4th quarter in a close game. I won't run the numbers but the upsets that happen in real life are things people can look at and say "Yeah, here is why this happened" upsets in this game have no cause or effect, it is just a blanket 10% or something.
Really I wouldn't have issue with a 75% talent to 25% gameplanning ratio. In real life established schools and coaches and successful schools do tend to have that type of approach. Everyone knows what Oklahoma is going to do on the field, but the talent is so different that it doesn't matter what you do for gameplanning.
Yes, will this make it rough on new people trying to get into positions of status? yes. HOWEVER, we have no new people signing up so lets just switch it to where the current players will be happy and you all can just bank on our paid seasons instead of working to get an extra two or three new people ($30) a month.
