CFB Rules and Punishments

Recommended Posts


This is in response to teams not updating Depth Charts in a timely manner across both NFL and CFB which impacts the sim running games and causing the dev team to have to manually go in and adjust rosters.

1. All Gameplans AND Depth Charts are due by 11:59 EST Wednesdays. No exceptions (unless otherwise articulated by the Dev team, namely @Rocketcan or @TuscanSota).
- Any failures to update Depth Charts to account for injuries will incur an infraction (covered below).

2. Redshirts are due by Wednesday 11:59 EST of Week 4 (or Week 3 if you play Week 0, 1, 2, and 3). No exceptions.
- If/when you redshirt players, be sure to check both your depth chart -- that INCLUDES your Special Teams Unit (STU).
- Redshirts are not mandatory to utilize, so it is not on us if you miss Redshirting players.

3. Any scheduling deadlines are dictated by conference commissioners. Conferences without appointed commissioners will be administratively handled by the admin team first, and in the absence of someone from the admin team then another conference commissioner.
- Any failures to complete scheduling will incur an infraction (covered below).

4. This list is not all inclusive and can/will be amended for future scenarios/situations that are deemed fit for addition by the community/simFBA staff.

1. Infractions will be increased pending for repeat offenders and will carry over throughout the duration of a season. At the conclusion of each season, everyone will be presented with a clean slate and start from ground zero once again but will maintain any penalties incurred from previous seasons if any.

2. Penalties will be on a case by case basis upon severity but for transparency a baseline will be as follows:
- Depth Chart/Gameplanning: In the event I am informed that you failed to correct your Depth Chart as previously described, the team will lose 1 scholarship for the current recruiting class. This is to place importance on the responsibility of coaches since recruiting runs concurrently with the football season. Every additional infraction throughout the season will increase the severity of the penalty to scholarships. Two infractions will be the loss of 2 scholarships (in addition to the 1 previously), three infractions will be the loss of 4 scholarships (in addition to the previous penalties). Four and beyond will be bowl/playoff eligibility bans for a to be determined amount of time.

- Scheduling: Conference commissioners are ultimately responsible for their respective conference's schedules so commissioners must stay engaged. If conference commissioners are engaged, then any scheduling infractions will be levied against the schools and not the conference. Any failures of schools to complete scheduling will incur scholarship penalties. If the conference as a whole is unprepared there will be bowl suspensions (not for the entire conference but say, miss out on two bowls your conference otherwise could have attended) but will be fairly applied depending upon circumstance.


TENTATIVE SOLUTION: If a school incurs penalties and it is due to inactivity and the coach needs to be dropped from the school and made AI, scholarships will be reinstated and will likely fill the slots with walk-ons or until we come up with an alternate solution.

I understand some of the penalties might seem steep, but coaches have a full seven days to tinker with depth charts. If you're unable to do something on Tuesday or Wednesday, there's nothing stopping you from gameplanning for your next opponent on Thursday after games have been ran. The penalties are in place because the lack of attention to detail prevents games being run appropriately and causes errors with the simulation engine.
