    Choosing Team Profiles

    Alright folks, we might as well get this discussion rolling.

    Mallard Muscle came up with a great system for designing our teams, and I'm going to run with it. Basically, your team design will consist of 3 thing - your prestige, your pitches, and your roster. The system we'll be using makes you balance the three out - your school won't be great on all three fronts.

    If you choose to take a Top Tier choice in any category, you'll then have to choose a Bottom Tier choice in one other.

    Prestige

    Top Tier - 3 stars
    Middle Tier - 2 stars
    Bottom Tier - 1 star

    Pitches - you can allocate the grades to any pitch

    Top Tier - 4-A categories, 2-B categories, 3-C categories, 2-D categories
    Middle Tier - 2-A categories, 4-B categories, 4-C categories, 1-D category
    Bottom Tier - 2-A categories, 3-B categories, 5-C categories, 1-D category

    Rosters - all rosters should be non-BCS templates

    Top Tier - C+ rating maximum
    Middle Tier - C- rating maximum
    Bottom Tier - D+ rating maximum


    Sample Team #1: 1-star prestige, middle tier pitches, C+ team roster

    Sample Team #2: 2-star prestige, middle tier pitches, C- team roster


    To get people active a bit, roster choices will be unique - first come, first serve. List your Tier choices for each category, and name your roster template.



    Here's a list of the team roster overalls:

    C+ (Top Tier)

    [str]BYU[/str]
    ECU
    Houston

    C (Top Tier)

    Bowling Green

    Pitches - Middle Tier

    2-A categories (Athletic Facilities, Fan Base)
    4-B categories (Academic Prestige, Campus Lifestyle, Championship Contender, Program Tradition)
    4-C categories (Television Exposure, Pro Potential, Coach Experience, Coach Prestige)
    1-D category (Program Stability)


    Roster - Middle Tier (SMU)

    I'm looking at rosters right now. One question, if EA fixes the rosters do we change change teams or stay with the same team new roster?

    I think the best we can do is use what they have out right now, and if it changes then we can adjust if need be.

    I think they might change some minor roster issues, but for the most part everything will stay the same including the overall team ratings.

    If they do a major overhaul, we can re-pick.

    Big Suge, Tulsa is a Top Tier roster, so you'll have to bump one other down or re-pick.

    I think I'm going to copy Basis to some extent. Low Prestige - Bad Roster - Good Pitches. I think a bad team at a decent school (I'll probably go academics, facilities, tradition, etc.) is the kind of start I want. It should give me something to work on, and the ability to build, but not to be good very soon. I'll let you know what roster I like. I may go with my Utah State Aggies from PK's league, but they're pretty awful.

    I'm going with this setup as well. If the BYU roster were still out there, I'd consider going a different way, but I think I'm going to do this:

    Prestige: Lower Tier - 1 star
    Pitches: Upper Tier
    Roster: C- (Kent State)

    Check that. I'm going with a 2-star prestige, and a D+ roster. Put me down as New Mexico State.
