How does the longevity in the program factor in? Basketball can be one and done, while football is 3 years minimum.

I don't think it can be as simple as a straight 25 class limit. How do you count transfers, walkons? Figure out how many years an incoming player has to complete there eligibility and count all granted scholarships over all those years whether or not the player remains on the roster. So an incoming freshman would count against the scholarship limit over the next 5 years (4 years to play + possible red-shirt).

I agree the question could be phrased better, but to me, the question is essentially "Considering their impact on the team, the positions and sports they play and the likely longevities of their college careers, do you think Gary or Brown would have a larger impact on his respective program?" The responses don't have to be negative (although some will likely take that approach) nor does it have to be a "zero sum reasoning".

|15 weeks 1 day ago||not only would a hard annual||
not only would a hard annual scholarship cap dampen the ability to reward walk-ons, it seems like it would also hurt transfers. How about a system with a number limit on incoming players with 4 years of eligibility left and a diiferent limit for walk-ons and transfers that have less than 4 years of eligibility left when they start with a program. The walk-on/transfer pool could only have so many players at any one time and has to stay below a certain number of points. The points being assigned based on how many years of eligibility a player has left. A player is counted in both metrics as if he was with the program until his eligibility runs out (even if he leaves). I'd imagine there would still be inequities or chances to game the system almost no matter the approach, but at least this does away with the incentive to cut kids Or force them to take medicals...

With the increasing usage of grad transfers, if you know a player is strong academically and redshirt them, don't you open up the possibility of them using their fifth (best?) year for someone else? Aren't the kids that do well in school probably also the kids that are most likely to pursue grad school?
|15 weeks 6 days ago||I think there are a couple||
I think there are a couple assumptions that may invalidate some of your premise. You'd only have 17 schollys available IF 1) no one leaves and 2) all fifth years are brought back. If you get a normal level of attrition and don't bring back all fifth years, you could easily push into the 20s with schollys and potentially even hit the annual limit of 25 with a few left over for rewarding successful walk-ons.
|17 weeks 6 hours ago||Actually, I believe it is||
Actually, I believe it is your math that is wrong. If MI misses the first shot and MSU rebounds (50%) chance then the other things don't happen. If MI makes (50%) and MSU answers (50% * 50% or 25% overall). If MI makes, MSU misses and MSU wins in OT, that is the 12.5%. Michigan's chances of winning are "ands" (ie, needs to make and MSU needs to miss and win in OT). MSU chances of winning are "ors" (ie, M misses or M makes and MSU makes or M makes, MSU misses and MSU win in OT). The MSU "ors" are additive (50 + 25 +12.5 % = 87.5%)

I'd agree it would make sense not to practice they folks that will play in the game any harder than normal. But wouldn't it makes sense to use the extra practice time to get players further down the depth chart a lot of reps?
