I don't think your speed/ath/defense are good enough.  It should be much  closer to 70/50/70.

Seeing as though I'm in three other D2 worlds that are currently playing right now, and NOT ONE D2 team in any of those three worlds can claim to hit all three of those benchmarks at the same time, maybe that's not the main problem?
Those numbers are hard to hit but they should be close if you want to be Final Four material.   Here are some teams in knight that are close:

  School Players A SPD REB DE BLK LP PE BH P WE ST DU FT TOT
1. Christian Brothers 12 68 53 31 72 26 31 38 41 42 67 78 63 C+ 611
2. Incarnate Word 12 67 54 44 65 35 43 53 46 44 54 74 54 C 633
3. Stonehill 12 66 57 40 64 33 45 53 54 50 47 76 68 C+ 654
4. N. Michigan 12 65 57 36 65 25 46 45 51 46 64 77 68 C 646
5. Grand Canyon 12 65 47 54 66 43 38 39 44 46 63 73 54 C 633
6. Paine 12 63 54 41 61 36 49 39 42 33 55 79 54 C+ 607
7. Harding 12 63 57 40 63 34 32 35 42 37 52 79 66 C+ 600
8. CSU, Bakersfield 12 62 50 42 66 33 43 42 39 45 70 78 63 C 632
9. Rollins 12 62 51 36 65 25 39 38 44 44 58 70 60 C 592
i agree with this sentiment, that you want to get close to those numbers to start hitting the national championship contender range. but i do agree with emy, i dont think thats a reasonable standard to expect of someone unless they were asking, "why didnt i win the national championship?" or something - why did i go under .500 against human coaches, i think thats too tough :) in tark, there were like 2 teams the last couple seasons who hit those metrics (although i really consider 60-65 speed top of the line, kind of tough to do with the great ath/def, but i think better speed with a little less ath/def would be fine, or visa versa). one won back to back championships, the other was my team, still amidst a defense switch, and we got the #1 overall seed both seasons. so i think its a little rough to use that standard unless its someone wondering why a team wasnt championship material, you have teams in the low 60s ath/def win d2 titles regularly, too.

Nice job, and it wasn't just any title, but a 35-0 title!  Those are extra sweet.

Only frustrating part - despite the NT and 300+ overall wins, still don't qualify for a big 6 opening, including a C- prestige Pittsburgh. Also don't qualify for a few mid majors, including a sub .500 Ivy school and a C+ prestige school from the MEAC. Thought the NT would carry more weight, but such is life.
