My rationale was this (I don't have it broken down to numbers as gillispie does) - Even assuming the A/A- difference is small and not overly important at D2, I'd expect it to be worth at least the difference of 3 SV - 1 PC. That leaves 2 HV vs a start and 10 minutes.
Given the tone of this thread, I'm beginning to suspect that promises are as under-powered as I feared.
If that is actually the case, maybe (if/when there's ever a recruiting update) the value of promises should be increased (substantially), along with stricter/harsher penalties for breaking any promises.
the thing about 1 partial grade is, it can be 0 partial grades or 2 partial grades. technically, its at least .000001 or so and at most 1.99999 or so partial grades, but that cannot be ignored! so you really can't say anything about the value of the prestige difference here being worth at least anything :( i think this is why the values on d1 prestige (and indeed, d2/d3 prestige) vary so wildly from one veteran coach to another, even guys who have traded battle notes. its because people look at 1 letter grade and go well thats pretty far apart, i should be able to figure out something with that! but then that can be 2/3rds or 1 1/3rd grade, which is a factor of 2 difference! so based on the numbers, you might be able to say, prestige is in the 50-100% range, but that is a pretty damn huge range, and battles in d1 almost never take place between schools who are over a grade apart.
