I guess two contingents is, in fact, the problem. I have never had the visceral reaction against V2 that others seem to have. I have had some success (one NC at Div I-AA level and some CCs) but I haven't had great success. I feel like that's about right for me. I don't know that I've ever learned to recruit all that well (or others invest more time than I do), but I've done well taking over teams that were already set up and realizing that potential. Sure, there have been some upsets, and maybe my NC run even enjoyed the benefit of a few upsets, but do we really want to play a game where you can predict with certainty the result before you play? Then what would be the point? Upsets happen in real life, but if you do a better job recruiting and get better players, you'll win - unless you really screw up coaching. Similarly, in this game, if you recruit well and get better players, you'll win much more than you'll lose - unless you can't game plan at all.
