    Do we have one or are we thinking about one? Couldn't help but notice now that Nik is 6* he already has 4 :5stars: locked up. Looking around at some other leagues I've heard some have caps as low as 2-5? Any thoughts?

    I know in the past we've never really had to limit this...

    I doubt I'll sign anymore than 4 this year unless off-season miracles happen.

    Id kinda assume once we get to that level we'd wanna sign as many as possible, but ur also way ahead of everyone else at this point too (talent & skill wise) IMO and wanted to see what everyone else though.

    honestly Id be down for a cap... hard to call yourself a Sim league when 5 or more 5* are goin to the same school, would be un heard of in real life

    I don't like the idea of putting more rules in place especially considering how much of a recruiting intensive dynasty this is.

    I think Nik should go on probation.

    True but to be fair putting a cap isnt adding an entire rule book. I think it just effectively helps put some balance into recruiting and overcomes shortcomings in the recruiting design (i.e. two 5* HBs would probably not sign with the same school as one would inevitably get the shaft)

    FWIW 5 5*'s is not unheard of. USC has pulled in 6 before and 5 several other teams. I want to say even Tennessee did it during the reign of Lane Kiffin.

    say what you want about the tennants of National Socialism, at least it's an ethos.... but seriously wouldn't that make our current scholarship limits an exercise in socialism?

    Nah Kiffin never got that many at Tenn... FWIW the university of Texas has signed 6 5* in the past 3 years, so a non-BCS team would be easily able to accomplish in half a season what the best recruiting machine managed in 3 seasons?

    Maybe if you guys would beat Nik once in a while, he wouldn't be a monster...

    Well IRL only 1 top 150 player went to a non-bcs school this year, which was TCU who will be BCS by the time he hits the field. Maybe we should capp 5 stars and top 150 LOL

    I don't agree with capping any recruiting outside what we already have, but I think Niks arguement is pretty weak still

    Well I'm actually more for the non socilization of NCAA football but just thought I would throw that out there as well.

    Do you guys want to cap it at 3? I went with a 5 :5stars: cap in Nik and I's other OD but we're elite teams there. I don't think Nik will sign over 3 :5stars: in most years anyway.

    Well I don't see Nik or his pitches getting any worse in the near future so he could do this again no doubt.

    Any :5stars: recruits Nik signs past 3 should automatically be enrolled at Arkansas State.

    Cap sucks. And for the record a cap would benefit me.
