I'll check them out.  Wow, that's a crazy coaching staff, lol.  Alvarez, Stoops, Snyder, McCarney....
Kirk Ferentz too.

And another Stoops and a Norvell as players.

Hayden, The Man, knew how to pick'em.

Check out the Avalon game and the link I put up last page. I still have those games and play them.  I love being random teams from decades ago.  Brilliant game.

If you roll one of these with a regular 10-sided die, then you get any number from 00-99.  The numbers on the QB cards tell you the ranges of a completion, incompletion, or INT.

I know, but that still avoids the messy issue of current amateur players being depicted.  

I'm glad you posted, though.  I should ask you what season would most Iowa fans want to play as, if you could pick one.  2002?  Something from the last 30 years or so - defensive stats are hard to come by way back when Kinnick was playing and not the name of the stadium.  Although that aspect of the game is more of an "if you want to" part - knowing who makes each tackle isn't essential to the game.

Who would Iowa fans want to play as?  Illinois?  Indiana?  Any of the schools that haven't won a NC in the past 30-35 years.  What say you guys?
1985 Hawkeyes.

Another good Iowa team was the 1960 team, but I think the offensive statistics don't really compare. The 1960 team got beat by Minnesota. Minnesota then rose to #1 in the final AP Poll. Iowa finished #2 in the final AP Poll, after blowing out Notre Dame in the season finale.Some think this team was better than the 1957 and 1959 Rose Bowl teams. Few people recall the 1960 team because it wasn't a bowl year.
Wilburn Hollis for Iowa was one of the first black QBs at a D-1 school.Wilburn Hollis Wikipedia

IN 1960 they didn't pass with the same frequency, so these teams are statistically hard to compare with more modern teams. You would have to project out to a 12 or 13 game season to keep them on par in the least bit with modern teams.

Well the play cards are based on the player's yards per rush or catch, so that works out okay.  The QB completion percentages were pretty bad back in the day, but their defensive numbers may help out a lot.  

'60 Iowa seems to have had a 1a and 1b at RB, and the 1b guy had a 7.4 yards per rush average.  That'll work out great. 

The QBs had around a 40% completion percentage, so obviously (and realistically), you'd run the ball a ton, only passing as a change of pace to get the defense to stop keying on your inside and outside runs.

In general, investors who might want to license will be concerned about IP, as without it, anyone can copy your "invention" readily (with minor changes to get by copyrights).  If it's a cool idea, a large company can get their "pros" to extract the critical parts and duplicate the sense of the game.

And avoid licensing fees.

Well we're a long way away from any of that.  I need to finish the game itself (the new incarnation) and spend dozens of hours play-testing it.  

If anyone has the time, I can email or mail you what you'd need and maybe play a game or two on speaker-phone so you get the hang of it and can play on your own.....

Interesting. What is the target market for this thing?

Maybe we could help sell it on this website, through the store. The store gets a lot of hits right now, but is lacking in sales. Perhaps something like this could help both causes.

I'd be curious to hear @Drew4UTk  thoughts on this.

As far as the regular store, I glanced through Purdue offerings and there's lots of good stuff on there.  Do all purchases made on there give the site a nice kick back?

i know this is a card/board game, but i think you could make this a into a phone/computer game pretty easily with a good programmer. hit both markets.
i'm not sure i'd ever play the card/board game, but i'd play the hell out of a phone game. could easily do a vs matchup that way as well.
very creative, oam. good luck.
