USFL '86: Shadow Market


A continuation of my hypothetical USFL series.

 

Features:

 

-7 minute quarters
-Stats after every quarter
-Wedge Returns
-Directional Punting
-Formation Experimentations
-Graphic Tweaks, including funky end zones 
-Stat Tweaks

-Sim Data Tweaks

-Offensive Formation Tweaks 
-3 team, 3 Division Structure
-12 teams make playoffs (as opposed to original 8 teams)
-18 game, locked, '85 schedule
-All Pro: '86 All-NFL Vs. '86 All-USFL (I had to make modifications: Dennis Gentry, Bobby Joe Edmonds, and Tim McGee all made ALL-NFL as Special Teams Players; some other modifications based on ALL-AFC or ALL-NFC) 

-Custom Schedule 

 

Player allocation was based on a mix of the 1986 territorial and Open Drafts, narrative flourishes, and '85 NFL final cuts. In terms of NFL player cuts: I placed players based on their USFL draft status or regional proximity of their college or through research.
