    Quick update

    I thought I 'd owe you all a quick update on what's been going on lately. The last month has been crazy and I've been falling behind with almost everything, this game included. I have in the last couple of weeks started both a new job and a small renovation of the house. And with everything else that's going on in the world right now I have not been able to put in that many hours on the game lately. So please accept my apologies for the lack of updates and not responding to questions and emails lately. I will do my best to catch up as soon as possible. But today I finally managed to make an update fixing the current bugs with scouting reports and draft preferences. I have started working on the v2.3.0 update. I will share some more thoughts regarding this update soon. Thanks again for your patience!

    The Tournament That Wasn't

    Although the NCAA Tournament has been cancelled in 2020, fear not! For in DDSCB2020 there is not CoronaVIrus, and DDSCB2020's Tournament Maker allows the BIg Dance to come alive. Since only a few conference tournaments concluded before the cancellation was announced, the results of any conference tournaments that were played have been disregarded. Teams have been selected and seedings made based upon conference standings, overall records, polls and RPI...and my own whims. Real World Mod Option #4 was used to create the association upon which Tournament Maker was based for this DDSCB2020 NCAA Tournament. So each team has real-life coaches. But players for teams are fictional, of course, rather than this season's actual real-life players...so results may vary from what you expect. Now time to get started so brackets can be constructed and tournament games played.

    BBCF 2015 and Beyond

    I first picked up a copy of BBCF many years ago. I really enjoyed the game and played it as often as family, work, and grad school demands permitted. Fast forward to this past Holiday season and I found myself with some vacation time, good bowl games to watch, and an urge to start up BBCF again. As a long-time member of the OOTP boards, I have been posting my ongoing "career" of leading the San Jose State Spartans . While I enjoy the OOTP game and its community, I didn't think it was appropriate for me to continue to post in a forum for what is sure to be at some-point an amazing FOF / OOTP collaboration. So with that said, I hope this community finds some enjoyment in following along with my San Jose State Spartans.

    The Tournament That Wasn't

    Round 1 is COMPLETE!11 of the 32 teams advancing to the round of 32 are from non-power conferences. Now the challenge for them is to continue moving forward as the competition stiffens.Only 2 teams that were lower seeds won in the 32 games in round 1. One of those wins was a #9 beating a #8 and the only real upset was by #12 Wright State.So the tournament committee’s seedings were pretty much spot-on...at least for the first round.Top Individual Performances in Round 1:Tyler Payne, PF, Oregon—29 pointsDiego Moore, SG, St. Louis—28 pointsZack Hayes, SG, Maryland—27 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals, 3 blocksLee Hahn, PF, Colorado—23 points, 7 reboundsMike Hollins, PF, Kentucky—21 points, 12 reboundsMarcus Holmes, SF, Illlinois—20 points, 11 reboundsAndre Sampson, PF, Arizona—19 points, 11 rebounds, 9 blocksKendric Pugh, SG, Wright State—17 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals, 5 blocksJoe Bush, SF, Baylor—16 points, 13 reboundsMike Grant, PF, Michigan State—16 points, 13 reboundsAlvin Griffin, C, Colorado—18 points, 8 rebounds in 18 minutesCopley Robertson, C, UC Irvine—18 points, 5 rebounds in 19 minutesRenaldo Miller, PF, Duke—17 points, 5 rebounds in 18 minutesTravis Murray, SG, Oregon—11 points, 9 assists, 3 blocksTrenton Sarchet, SG, Colorado—7 points, 10 assistsJeffrey Gardiner, PG, Duke—11 points, 8 assistsRasual Crowley, PG, Southern California—8 points, 8 assists

    Discord: Anders AMA

    Hey Anders: You know there is a core community of long-term managers here who love this sim. What do you think about hosting an AMA on Discord where we can ask you simple (perhaps Yes/No) questions about elements of the sim - with as much elaboration as you are comfortable with? I mean here things we have always wanted to know but have been unable to determine in-game (example: "Does fatigue strongly impact goalie attributes/performance?"). I have a few of these, they've come up in various discussions, and it would be interesting to hear your perspectives on some of these things. Of course, you do not have to answer any leading questions or ones that reveal game mechanics. This could also be a good avenue to talk about your roadmap for GPHM in the future, any areas you need help or input on, any resources we can provide, gain feedback on the game, etc. Thoughts? Other managers - feel free to comment as well if this is something you want to see. Alex

    Best gm sports game?

    Football Manager has been my go to since the mid 90's when it was Championship Manager. I've played every version that Steam has put up and every year I have a million stories to tell - and even better, it exploded my knowledge within the sport itself - so much so that I will see a young player get bought by the big clubs and I get excited for him - because I scouted him and made him a star at Derby County the year before in-game. I would love to know of other sports sims that deliver like that - because I'd be in!

    Assistants report

    I don't. I look at it to see if a player is comfortable in their role if they are struggling. Beyond that, it is interesting to look at. As for your team doing well defensively and losing by 3 goals, look at a few things. Did your goalie have a bad game? Alternately, do the game and player stats match up with that? Your team can still play well but be outdone by a few skilled players. Or the opposing team's special teams can get all of the goals effectively bypassing your team's D.

    San Diego State 31 --- San Jose State 3 Wow, total domination by San Diego State (7-5). The Aztecs jumped out to a quick lead and never were threatened in this one. In getting the 31 to 3 win over San Jose State (5-5), the Aztecs held the Spartans to just 214 net yards on the day and a dismal 9 first downs. QB Tony Lima was a pathetic 9 for 41 on passing, and RB Juan Moreno could only eek out 52 rushing yards on 20 carries. What a disappointing effort by the Spartans! #onestepforwardtwostepsback

    Personally, I agree with you on Rask vs Thomas.

    Cage trash talk

    Agree. And my dilemma is that during the regular season, there is no other goalie I would want on my team. But during clutch moments, he's collapsed too many times for me to feel confident in him. I also agree that many of the goals were not mostly his fault. But in the end, you want a goalie that can elevate their game in the biggest moments and steal games for you. That's what makes greatness... in any sport. And that is not what I see from Rask. In those moments, I'd rather have a goalie with a 3M salary and 4M spent elsewhere. Just to go back to the Thomas Cup Finals for a second. He may have cost Boston 1 game in that series, but look at the entire body of work. In a 7-game series, he let in 8 goals. From games 1-7 it went: 1-3-1-0-1-2-0. That is simply insane! And if you go back 1 game further, he got the shutout in game 7 of the ECF vs. Tampa. So Thomas finished those playoffs by only allowing 8 goals in his last 8 games. Absurd numbers. Compared to Rask's 18 goals allowed in the 7-game series vs. St. Louis. Choke job. To me Thomas will always be the better Boston goalie. If Rask eventually wins a Cup it will make it closer, but even still. Thomas: 4x All Star, 2x Vezina, Conn Smythe Rask: 3x All Star, 1 Vezina

    He looked perfect last night against the Flyers. The Flyers played far better than Boston for at least 40 mins of that game and Carter Hart had a damn near perfect game, but Rask was perfect and that is why Boston won.

    After the trade deadline all contract offers are in terms of the following season (example: sign a player not on your roster and they won't report until day 1 of the following season). Then if you are situated in a top 2 seed in your conference after day 87, in terms of contract negotiations you are now considered the level of the league you are promoting to. I'm not fully visualizing your situation in my head, so sorry if that doesn't clear it up. But that is how it has always been as a promoting team after day 87, going back to the old version. When I was promoting to the GHL I had a bunch of players that would not resign on SHL contracts, so I had to ensure that I had guaranteed promotion at the end of the season and had to wait until after day 87 to negotiate their extensions.

    LOL! I played my 83 OVR backup who hadn’t lost in regulation all season. Now 9-1-3. And he (computer) countered with his 78 OVR affiliate goalie. Another point of note - they tied the game on a SHG and the GWG was scored by a 78 OVR player with no offensive skills. It was a tough one for sure.

    LIHL Players

    Bringing this one back from the dead because I think it is a real problem with an easy solution. There are a couple of teams in my LIHL league that have top 2 lines filled with 65+ players. No way this is by design but rather “lucky” as others have posted. Problem being there are so few owners that the early birds get REALLY lucky and it is frustrating being a new owner and seeing there are stacked teams that you can’t compete with. The solution in my mind is to make contracts scale closer with overall instead of however they are scaling now. Remove the “won’t sign with you right now” or at least loosen it up. One guy has a 68 overall forward he signed this year for 33k which is INSANE. That player is firmly in the copper league skill wise and is playing for peanuts in the LIHL. He should be requesting 100-150k based on his skill alone (5-7% of CHL cap). 70 overall should be looking closer to 10% (215k) of CHL cap. This way, you can grab one or two players outside of your league skill, but will break the bank if you sign too many. You have to be more STRATEGIC and less “lucky”. New owners can target one or two great players to build around or go for depth with proper league skill levels.

    tom brady sucks

    At lest tell us why Tom Brady sucks. It might be prudent that admin not count this posting for ryanstan when counting the 2 posts needed to leach a game. His posting is garbage... (There it was said. When making a statement such as that evidence needs to be included.) With that said, along with what the above guys wrote. Tom Brady is one of the best quarterbacks in the history of the game and his induction in to the pro football hall of fame will prove just that when he retires, whenever that maybe nobody knows. Love him or hate him it can not be disputed that he is one of the greatest if not the greatest there ever was!

    Wick Schozen

    Warman Aussies (Buzzer)

    When the league headquarters announced the sale of the Altona Dragons to an unnamed bar owner in the small town of Warman most around the league didn’t bat an eye. That was until it was leaked who had made the purchase. “Wasn’t he banned from the league from his days in Howitzer?” One anonymous executive sent via text message “Heard he called the commissioner's wife a sex worker after being suspended for putting a fresh coat of lead paint in the visitors dressing room before every home game." It was day 54 of season 2 that Wick Schozen returned to the business of professional hockey. Successfully finding a loophole in the bylaws of Buzzer, Schozen is now the owner, general manager and coach of the Warman Aussies. A mere eight days after the announcement Schozen has stripped any remnants of the teams Altona past and left no confusion in the direction the Aussies are headed in. “I’m not in the business of telling grown men to divorce their wives. I sleep better at night with a team of 20 year olds who have no idea they just signed their life to me in the fine print of their contracts.” Schozen said at his first press conference in front of the media. "To do that we’re on our way down to the SHL, anyone too undesirable to other teams to be traded will have their contract voided at the end of the season and their stink of mediocrity out of my locker room.” This team of 20 year olds is already well into actualization. Through seven trades in as many days the Aussies have almost more draft picks for the season 2 draft as players on the active roster. As forecast, everyone over the age of 20 is going to see their one-way clause release them from the team. “We’re building this program from the ground up. To do that I need kids I can mold into competence. It’s the Nike sweatshop model. Children are employed to make shoes before they can wipe their ass. The ones that survive into adulthood are mercenaries on a sewing machine. Look how well Nike is doing as a company, the same model is coming to the Aussies. If these boys can tuck goals at half the efficiency that a nine year old can churn out sweatpants we’re going to have one hell of a hockey team in Warman.” It was his ruthlessness as a general manager that led the Newcastle Fighters to a GHL Championship back Howitzer. But the seasons that followed were tainted by the Fighters failing to live up to expectations. Schozen’s reputation around the league worsening as his antics continued to get more elaborate in search of success. Without notice Schozen was out of the spotlight and Newcastle bought out and relocated. “I thought the guy was dead.” Another anonymous exec said to me, “honestly I preferred believing that than to know he’s back in the league.” What Schozen manages to do at this seasons draft is going to be crucial for the long term success of the new franchise. With 11 draft picks in the bank he can afford to miss on a few, but Schozen is adamant that isn’t an option. “I took my entire scouting staff with me when I left Newcastle. They’ve been following this draft class since they were 12 years old and have been accruing a bar tab with me the entire time. If any of these picks don’t turn out I’m making the scout that backed the player pay back everything they owe on their tab. With that amount of debt I’ll own not only their children but their children’s children. They know what’s at stake.”
