Yes, it's not ideal. But no matter what, the better team will win. Being at home won't help.. 3/4 home teams lost today.
Why would we recseed? This makes absolutely no sense! The One time I finally get over other the "St. Louis" Hurdle and I get screwed!
I'm going to be even more pissed if I lose! And you can guarantee I'll be letting EVERYONE know about it. That's friggin dumb and Unrealistic as hell! Not happy AT ALL!
That's what it looks like, yeah.. you are 12-4 and ended up with a home game over 11-5 Iowa.. very unfortunate and Matt has every right to be upset when he finds out but we cannot do anything about it..
In case everyone has missed it, our first PF18 bin file will be published on December 20th. This is 3 days after the Continental Bowl. This is not a season flip but the first publish using PF18 so that our coaches will be on rosters and we can decide who to keep/let go and if we need to use our franchise tags that will be the time. The season flip will almost certainly occur AFTER Christmas giving everyone that has not gotten the game a chance to do so.
Again, owner input is out the door, coaches took over every team (and we won't get those same ones because they'll be randomly generated) and no free agents were added so injuries could've derailed some of the better teams.. having said all of that.. Iowa went 12-4 in that sim.

Does anyone have any issues with replying to topics where the editor is not showing (bold, italic, etc.)? Or smilies not showing?
But for those that haven't played around with it yet, I highly recommend you start getting used to PF18 or else its going to hit you really hard when we make the switch.
I wouldn't worry about those PF18 results I spoke of.. for one, its all coach controlled so all of your input in PF16 doesn't exist and two, the full season sim was computer drafted teams and no free agents on rosters.. a lot of it could've been injuries too...
I feel ya vince. Ive opened it like three times. I wonder if my game planning and team build will translate. Its been a major task to get my team this far from where they were when i took over, just like you
Kind of nervous for PF18, I bought it but havent touched it LOL hoplefully my team translates well.
Yeah, I don't think we're going with a fog of war.. too many no votes in the committee and I already know their ratings.. would not be fair whatsoever to anyone else..
if we choose not to use FOW (and I hope we don't) you could theoretically spend your whole budget on coaches, you won't need anything for scouting
I know a few will focus on coaching (Garrett is the first one that comes to mind lol but Doc for sure as well)..
I'm figuring out that you should spend big on Head Coach and GM.. Coordinators can be lesser players (or cheaper.. found 2 2.5 stars for $500K!)
My team had a run-first offense.. Holm still threw 50 touchdowns and my RB had 1400 yards lol...
Continental Bowl was a rematch.. OH/WH.. WH won in the fake 2025 playoffs a second ago..
I may only change the Gameplan section (not the strategy that's in the game now)
I think I'm going to let the coaches make all my decisions in-game.. I'm going to be more of a GM in PF18..
Considering Monaghan played better than Sheldon I'd say it has an effect lol
I don't have hardly any players out of position.. Sheldon is the only one that looks like he's on this roster that played... and hte results weren't great..
So he definitely didn't play as well.. so that being out of position certain made a small effect there
