Plenty of us have been to grad school as well. You read that wrong and addressed it incorrectly. It's simple fact-- that is what happened.

Posted by ettaexpress on 5/6/2014 11:59:00 AM (view original):You have poor reading comprehension. "Changing that state of affairs" refers to your ignorance in regards to the game, not your desire to change the engine.
Posted by wildcat98 on 5/6/2014 9:18:00 AM (view original):Seriously? I'm more interested in changing the state of affairs with regard to the game than anyone. Most of you are happy with the same clunker of a non-sim that you've gotten used to because you can take advantage of it.
Posted by nickguy08 on 5/5/2014 11:37:00 PM (view original):I'd recommend ignoring almost everything posted by Ettaexpress regarding HD. He knows almost nothing about how the game works, and isn't particularly interested in changing that state of affairs.

I know my method of recruiting is not the popular method, but it has worked. I think Nyack in the Knight world is probably the best example of my method.If peaking at the #49 RPI and some first round NT exits is a supportive example of your method, you may have some reevaluating to do.
I think the general opinion is that maybe I am not putting much thought into recruiting, because I don't use the service.I'm sure you're putting a lot of thought into it, but it's really inefficient. If you want to be a winning coach you're going to have to use all the information you can get your hands on. FSS is VITAL if you want to have any real success. Two guys with identical starting numbers will often look wildly different from each other with FSS information. You're a sacrificing huge huge huge amount by foregoing it.
Make it cost less and I will use it. The service costs too much when users are in a weak conference. The service is affordable a little bit more bigger conferences. That is my biggest issue. A successful school should benefit more from it regardless of the conference. Why share the "team" success with a conference full of sims. IRL D3 level public schools HAVE advantages when they are a conference of private schools that cost $30,000+ year to attend. You think Wichita St has an as small basketball budget as the rest of the conference ? I wouldn't think so. Why should I be at fault in that case too?
I don't disagree with the benefits. I said in an earlier post this past season I had $3,000 to spend on one recruit. As it turns out I spent 3/4 of it on a recruit that was undecided until about the last day. I woke up the recruit ended up signing with someone else. If I were to get into battles with the best "potential" from the FSS service, I wouldn't have any cash to get a decent player.
As for the # 49 RPI, yeah I see what you are saying. I try my best to schedule tough non-conference games, but I can't control the conference. Not using the service, took Nyack to the first NT EVER, when 5 previous coaches could not. (They probably used the service.) Just good coaching?
Am I at fault for wanting to turn a program around? Often times they are in the weakest conferences. I took a small chunk little of thunder away from the Felician dominance while I was there. I am sure that user used the service too.
I would also recommend taking the advice of the people who have told you that using the FSS service is your best avenue for recruiting. The information gleaned from knowing potentials is just invaluable.
Shrug, sorry you all don't want a better game and wish to change *that* state of affairs. Smells like fear, Rabbit. You'd rather keep clunking along in your 83 Nova of a sim because that's what you're used to and what gives you the advantage, even though the sim would do better, sell better, attract new players better with a rebuild.
I love how people try to criticize my reading or writing or communication like that's not every bit what the entrance exams for grad school tested. Dumb.
Also, at no point did I say I don't want improvements to the game. The whole point was that changing the state of the game engine wasn't even the topic of these posts. At no point did wildcat or myself address changing or not changing the engine, but you are thrusting that in there as if that is what we said. However, anyone can see that neither of us addressed that. You just read it wrong.
I didn't read anything wrong. I love how everything on this board is my friggin fault.
I addressed changing the engine because that's what I felt like addressing, because it needs changing, desperately. And even as some here seem desperate to hang onto the past, many here seem to realize it needs changing.
I haven't acted at all like I've accomplished more than anyone else. I have however made the point that you have to demonstrate some significant ability to read, write, communicate, comprehend in order to do well on grad school entrance exams, and I did. So why don't we just can the horsecrap on that?
I read nothing wrong. You see, the sim is not really very complicated. It's actually ridiculously uncomplicated, and that's part of its problem. At the same time though, the sim somehow manages to be clunky and opaque. Some say this is intentional; if so, it's probably the worst concept I've ever seen for a product. I suspect it would be to cover up the sim's obvious weaknesses in relation to real life. Finally, while being all of these things, it's also clunky, which is impressive. Trying to turn around a program is akin to turning around an aircraft carrier because of the deeply flawed IQ mess, primarily.
What I don't understand about the sim, what I don't comprehend, is how in the world any of you actually defend the current system. It would be easier to list the things right with it than what's wrong. The things right is a shorter list. And yet most of you are proposing cosmetic changes or you don't want to make changes that need to be made because you don't want to actually have to realistically control and coach your team. You'll argue against a change just because there's a 1% exception that proves the rule.
But it's obvious that seble isn't going to listen to me and is going to give you whiners what you want, which is some superficial changes to make you happy while not upsetting the little world you've created for yourselves too much. Too bad it's not anything like reality.
