The REAL Alabama problem

Okay, so I know a lot of people have been complaining about Alabama being overrated. I was pretty meh about it...until this...

I'm playing a dynasty with them for the sake of unlocking achievements. On the original rosters, out of all 120 schools, there are not ANY players who are a 99 overall, and Mark Ingram is the only 98. There are a handful of 97s.

But after completing the first season, we run into the real problem with Alabama's rosters. Training results.

Mark Ingram, senior HB, 99 (+1)
Dre Kirkpatrick, junior CB, 99 (+4)
Marcell Dareus, senior DE, 99 (+4)
Jerrell Harris, senior LOLB, 99 (+4)
James Carpenter, senior LT, 99 (+4)

Nico Johnson, junior MLB, 98 (+3)

Mark Baron, senior SS, 97 (+3)
*Trent Richardson, junior HB, 97 (+5)

Wesley Neighbors, juniorr FS, 96 (+2)

Courtney Upshaw, senior ROLB, 95 (+2)
Donta Hightower, senior MLB, 95 (+3)

BJ Scott, senior CB, 94 (+3)

William Vlachos, senior C, 93 (+1)
Barrett Jones, junior RG, 93 (+3)
Marquis Maze, senior WR, 93 (+3)
Kerry Murphy, junior DT, 93 (+3)
DJ Fluker, sophomore RT, 93 (+4)

Damion Square, junior LE, 92 (+2)
Alfred McCullough, senior RT, 92 (+4)

Chance Warmack, junior LG, 91 (+3)
Rod Woodson, junior SS, 91 (+3)
Tana Patrick, junior MLB, 91 (+4)
John Boswell, senior LG, 91 (+4)

Darrington Sentimore, sophomore RE, 90 (+2)
Phelon Jones, senior CB, 90 (+4)


Now, with HB Trent Richardson, I can only assume he got such a big boost because Mark Ingram was hurt for 8 weeks, so Richardson plays A LOT.

But I only listed the guys who end up at 90ovr or better after the first season. Now, I know the training results are somewhat random, but still, this roster becomes WAY better. You can't even recruit this good, even if you turn recruiting difficulty down to freshman.

FIVE 99s on ONE team when the default rosters start with ZERO 99s?!

They may win another national championship in 2010, but they won't go undefeated. September 25th.

Re: The REAL Alabama problem

Do whatever you want to your rosters. No one cares, and no one else matters.

Re: The REAL Alabama problem

There are a lot of guys who are overrated, but also, quite a few of those guys won't even be coming back for their senior seasons. Not sure why Dareus would come back, but I guess I understand why Ingram did given he was out half the season.
