The Jeremy Knight Experience v2.0 [Hoops Dynasty]

March 22, 2015 - 08:33 PM

So a while back I started a dynasty report using DDS:CB3. Needless to say, that quickly died out due to changing to a Mac (and not being able to play CB3 anymore) and not having any free time due to work and school. Anyways, I’ve been itching to get back into posting a dynasty story. The issue is I can still no longer play CB3. However, I have been playing Hoops Dynasty over at whatifsports.com and decided that I could write about that.

 

I’m preparing to start my 18th season in this world so I figured I would use my first post to catch the audience up on everything that has happened in my career so far. Also, just because I like the name, I’m going to use Jeremy Knight as my coach’s name and call this The Jeremy Knight Experience again. Maybe I will add 2.0 to the title to not cause too much confusion. Anyways, here are my season-by-season results since I started.

 

NOTE: Seasons in HD start at 1 and go up, so I’ll be using whatever the current season is instead of an actual year in my stories. For example, I’m about to start season 81 so I’ll refer to or use 81 in stories instead of 2014, 2015, etc.

 

I started my career at East Texas Baptist University, a Division III school in Marshall, Texas. I experienced unbelievable success from the start and had a pretty successful run. 

 

Season.......Overall.........Conference.......Place.....Post Season

64................34-1..............16-0...................1st..........NCAA CHAMPIONS

65................24-5..............16-0...................1st..........NCAA 1st Round

66................27-3..............16-0...................1st..........NCAA 1st Round

67................28-4..............16-0...................1st..........NCAA Sweet Sixteen

68................26-5..............15-1...................1st..........NCAA 2nd Round

69................20-9..............12-4...................2nd

70................24-6..............14-2...................2nd........NCAA 1st Round

71................24-7..............13-3...................2nd........NCAA Elite Eight

72................27-3..............16-0...................1st.........NCAA 1st Round

73................21-9..............13-3...................2nd........NIT 1st Round

 

During my tenure at ETBU I won 6 American Southwest Conference championships (64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 72) and 5 ASC Tournament championships (64, 68, 70, 71, 72). Eight trips to the NCAA Tournament and a national championship during my first season (I’ll be the first to admit that it wasn’t with my players) but I am very proud of my Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight runs. Before I arrived at ETBU they only had 1 Sweet Sixteen appearance and no Elite Eight appearances. After the 73 season, an exit from the NIT much earlier than I participated, I was kind of just tired of the D3 level. I yearned for the bigger recruiting budgets and the better players that Division I offered. I left ETBU to go to Birmingham-Southern in the Big South Conference to attempt to rebuild their program. Here is my career at BSC to this point.
