Dawgfan Posted November 18, 2006 Share Posted November 18, 2006 Arlie, I'm a member of Gridiron Glory (Mark Cooley's League). I do have a beef with this game. The beef is, its very hard for a team to rebuild. One of your algorymths places Team Prestige and Board Expectaions together, so when a team has a bad season, or doesn't meet the boards expectations, you get double whammied by 1. losing prestige, and 2. losing money to recruit with. In reallife, recruitment money never goes down. I don't have a problem with team prestige fluctuating, but money is crucial. I don't have the answers, but thought a different way of looking at it, could be having a way to bank money to put away for say upgrading facilities. With college football getting record amount of monies from TV revenues, corporate sponsorships, concessions, retail marketing, and alumni boosters, Congress is about to step in. Joe Biden D-Del, who is on the Board of directors of the NCAA, has stated that he wants a fairer distribution of monies to school in the division 1-A. Division 1-A school currently are subsidized, and get tax exemptions. This game you get penalized monetarily too. I think it is wrong. I know you need to have a give/take away system, but I think you get that with Prestige fluctuation. Money should never go down, and should have a way to upgrade the school, down the road. Don't make it easy, but make it possible. Also, Western Kentucky just jumped up to Division 1-A, and will compete in the Sun Belt Conference. Also, I believe all Division 1-A schools now play a 12 game schedule. I know the PAC-10 plays all schools in its conference now. This year is the first time that has happened. I've been a season ticket holder for the University of Washington for 45 years, and I've never seen their budget go down. I would just like to be able to rebuild the program to a respectable level. UW has a budget twice of what Washington State has, and yet BB, has WSU being the more profitable school, where in real life that is not true. They have had better teams in the last few years, but not historically. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
