So why on my ratings does a player start this season at , for example 81 perimeter.  My ratings say he has gained 9 points in perimeter for the season.  But my current rating says he is at 85 per.  Where is the error?  Should he really be at 90 now?  Was his starting point lower than what they say?
They turned on gathering the stats at some point, as older players (already graduated) do not have any stats.

This could mean that they actually started on a given day and everything started at that point.  That day is likely in the middle of the current season, so the first year will have only partial growth (since it started at a midway point).

It should work from the beginning of the 2nd season when the whole season is captured.

At least that is what I would think ... there could also be a bug, BUT, I noticed the same thing

We are quick to hammer Seble on these boards, but let's give him some credit over the last month.  There are no major changes, but I like the game and don't want to see any major, game changing, changes anyway.  Sure there is more work to do, but at least we are getting some updates.

yeah, there is some kind of issue with it. Check out this guy: 

Season Type A SPD REB DE BLK LP PE BH P WE ST DU OVR
73 Current 53 33 73 52 74 60 1 9 4 58 75 88 580
73 Season Start 52 32 72 49 73 58 1 7 4 53 72 87 560
72 Season End 53 33 73 52 74 60 1 9 4 58 75 88 580
His current and his end of last season are the exact same, but there's no way that's correct. Looks to me like they don't have Season 72 (Wooden) end results saved, and it somehow shoehorned current into that spot. 

It does look correct for my freshmen.

Hey guys - there was a bug that was causing some past records to be overwritten with current ratings when they shouldn't have been.  I've fixed that bug, but I won't be able to correct the data unfortunately.  I could wipe it out, but that would also remove some valid data.

After some more digging, it appears that most or all of the existing saved data is invalid, so I wiped it out.  Disappointing.

Might as well reset all worlds to season 1 in that case, right?
