conceptually, should it drop because of players failing? i dont know, i think its reasonable based on how real life works. but in the game, absolutely your reputation drops from guys failing out. i think a+ to a- is a bit of a stretch, you sure it was only 1 guy? nobody transferred in the last couple seasons, didnt cut anybody? i feel like ive had like 6 guys flunk out over 2 seasons and only dropped to an a-.
everyone keeps saying things like you Jeff that don't match up with what I see with reputation which is more like what jjohn is posting. I've had a few of these A+ to A- drops without cutting anyone or players quitting. There may have been some kids ******** and then recovering, not sure if that drops reputation, though unless it was promise based (these weren't) it shouldn't.
Now when I say it'll recover in a couple seasons someone will come along and say it will recover in one, but again I've had it take 2 without any other infractions that I'm aware of.
*Disclaimer - I believe it was you who called me out in these forums long ago when I was worried about getting fired at Alabama after that big screen tv that fell off the back of some random truck at some recruits house that one time, and then I guess during my probation and warning period I cut an underperforming player, but forgot about cutting him so I was whining on the forums about my job security when I'd even made the post-season and blah blah blah - my point being that my memory is less than iron clad, and probably wouldn't be admissible in any respectable court of law...
