I'm kind of there right now. I was never staying at Georgia College (D2) in Knight...it was always New Orleans or bust, and I made it. The guy that took over GC is starting rather shittily if you ask me. He took over an A- prestige (it was an A when I left) and is preseason ranked #5. He apparently cut a JUCO/Transfer Soph I signed last season (Cary Pippin, who has apparently been deleted from the game, which ****** me off as well) that was a #120 or #130 rank at C and filled the spot with... a walk-on...bravo!
He only had 2 other spots to fill and he doesn't even seem to get pulldowns/dropdowns, again with an A- prestige. I'm not saying pulldowns/dropdowns are everything...but if you're not chasing/signing them with a B or higher prestige...you're a fool. There are some D2 gems out there (I should know, I turned 1 into the NPOY) but these guys don't look like it...smh.
Any other stories like this or does anyone want to tell me I'm off my rocker. Does the coach in question want to attempt to defend himself? If any of you feel compelled, post something.
