    Whatifsports.com

    Do any of you play the hoops dynasty game on Whatifsports.com? I first heard about the site back in 2002 when a bunch of ISU fans on a message board were simulating the ISU/Hampton match up over and over again.

    Re: Whatifsports.com

    Wow, ok, no responses, I am surprised by that, i have ran into a few Cyclone fans on that site and only assumed a few of them probably posted here. If you like sports simulations, you guys should check it out sometime.

    Re: Whatifsports.com

    I've looked at it before. In fact I'm pretty sure I checked it out after learning about it in a thread here, so there are people out there who've looked at it.

    For those who don't know what we're talking about, here it is...

    SimMatchup College Basketball - Free NCAA Matchup and College Basketball Sim Games

    You can simulate college basketball and football, NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and "dream teams."

    It has been brought up a couple of times and I did check it out after it was posted before. But I would rather not mess around with what ifs and just look at what did happen.

    In case you want to see what has been said about it.

    I generally don't like simulating past games either (I'm one of the people who has said time and again that we need to get over the Hampton and Michigan State losses), but I do think it's fun to simulate a past team against some other team they didn't play. Of course nobody will ever know if the simulations are accurate. I just think of it as a way to waste time during the day.

    I do the Hoops Dynasty game Hoops Dynasty – Basketball Sim Games - Build your Basketball Dynasty Now!.

    Teams in Knight, Phelan, Rupp and Tark worlds, if anyone else plays. I tried Gridiron and Hardball but didn't get into them as easily. I'm pretty addicted to the basketball one... someday I will coach Iowa State. :)


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    Markshir,
    Good to see a fellow HD'r. I coach Iowa State in Wooden world and I am all hyped because I am playing in the national championship game tonight vs. Iowa of all teams. Can you imagine if that happened in real life. Anyway my name on whatifsports is Drichar138.

    Wanted to see if that would make sense to anyone on this site, because if you don't play HD you have no idea what I am talking about.

    Nice - hope you win! I prefer the two a day worlds - maybe someday we'll end up in the same conference.

    Farthest I've ever been is the Elite 8 this past season with Bentley in Tark.

    Yea, I am kind of a WIS lifer. I have a simleague baseball team that is in a progressive league. We are coming up on the 1994 season.

    I just started in Hardball dynasty, but I really don't like it as much. Too involved.

    Re: Whatifsports.com

    Just simulated ISU/Hampton 10 times and we won everytime, ISU/MSU we won 4 out of 7 on a neutral court. Of course, as all of us in attendance and watching on TV know, there was not much neutral about that game, right down to the paintjob on the floor.

    BTW I registered and put 2 hundo down on you to cover tonight in your championship game...lets take care of business against the Hawks



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Is this a free thing to do? I wouldn't mind doing it if it were free.

    Re: Whatifsports.com

    So I noticed you can sign up for a free season right now, but otherwise it's like $13 per year, is that correct?

    Pretty cool though, I'm signed up to Coach Coe in the next season.
