dcy, you get it. There should be nothing B and under that you couldn't get with that resume, in my opinion. At the very least a top of the line mid major.
I've long thought that the hiring/firing part of this game was probably the most messed up of all. Coaches who *should* be qualified aren't and the school ends up going Sim, coaches with worse resumes beat out coaches with better ones for jobs, firings, well firings are just a disaster all the way around, etc. and so on.
My opinion for a long, long time has been that if the hiring standards are changed (and they really need to be), then firings need to be ramped up also
. Keep the firings at D1 only, but if a coach isn't doing the job, he's got to go. Elites should be easier to get fired from than "normal" BCS schools, normal BCS schools easier to get fired from than mid-majors, mid-majors easier than low majors. Coaches should know going in that if they intend to move up to D1 then they better have their **** together, otherwise it's back to D2 you go. I believe Seble has stated that he's worried about ******* off long time customers, but what of the long time customers whose dream job is tied down by some less than mediocre coach whose only saving grace is that he made the PIT 23 seasons ago. This is a competitive game and if those coaches aren't able to compete and hold their own, then it's time for them to get the axe and let someone else have a shot at it. Just my two cents.
