As you can see the answer isnt based on how many players but the type of players. I have 9 with my LSU team and I've rotated between normal and slowdown all season and I should get into the NT as a 5 or 6 seed. Im wondering what impact uptempo would have. Also, another thing to consider (which I just did after an 0-3 start with my other team) is switching to a zone. Said team only has 8 players but the zone (despite having terrible IQs) seems to have countered the stamina issues. Yes, recruiting has been dismal of late and I've been taking 3 and 4 walkons!
