    I just advanced us to the off-season...Players Leaving is up.

    Remember: We are allowed to sway players back to our teams from the draft and from transferring.

    I'll advance next in 24 hours or as soon as all are done with the players leaving part.

    Went ahead and pushed on through the Transfers...Nati has a list up in the offseason thread of the transfers...If you guys who didn't get to do this stage don't want the guy who wanted you, you can cut him with no worries.

    does the celeb recruit still count now? There is a 20 overall 5 star that was just added. Is he fair game?

    Yeah, the system automatically sets him to be accepted by you and will come to your team unless you unchecked him...

    Yeah, I'd like to AT LEAST advance again tonight by the time I head off to sleep, which is normally NLT 1am (cen)...That's the goal. We'll see how it goes. If not, no major deal. We'll keep chugging along as best we can.

    You better not have any cuts...Don't go over the 70 limit. As far as advancing, I'd like to be done by then too but it's not looking good. We may just have to take the weekend off. Yikes...

    Oh yeah, I advanced a little bit ago...We'll advance again tomorrow night by 11pm central. If we're all done earlier, I'll try and get us advanced sooner.

    Sorry guys, 2 of my friends from out of town showed up unannounced and I wasn't able to get my recruiting in to allow JHeb to advance faster. Apologies.

    No Cuts! Actually, according to the Dynasty Description that is stickied to the top of the forums, you can cut ONE player if your final number of players is 70, which would leave you with 69 after the one cut. If you end up with 69 or less then you get no cuts.

    All of us should have been making sure we're filling our CPU defined "needs" (those highlighted in red) b/c if those aren't filled then you will get a walk-on and you'll be stuck with that dude. No Cuts.

    Don't go over 70. You have a couple of recruiting weeks left so you all better go make sure your boards look correct and you have not over offered b/c the penalties are not good for going over 70. I cannot be any clearer on this.

    No excuses. I'm assuming you're joking around Nati, but for real, don't go over. We have specific rules for this kind of dynasty and they must be followed by all.

    Okay? Do we all understand? Don't go over 70...No cuts.

    Okay, that's enough from me. I just want to make sure we all understand that I'm serious about this.

    Thanks guys,

    JHeb

    Yea - I gotcha. One thing I am confused about - checking my needs in red it say that my team has 50 players.. do those include the transfers or do they count toward the recruiting board total.

    I shouldnt have any walk ons but the game makes me iffy - Ive seen some silly people walk on when you dont need them to.

    Understood. J is right about walk ons, the only way you will get one is if you havent met roster requirements at a certain position. So if you sign guys that take you to 70 but dont fill a position NEED, you will receive a walk on and then that would put you over the 70.

    Side note: Im glad to be in this dynasty and like the challenge of recruiting as LaTech, man its a lot different than being a big time program...I gotta scratch and claw right now to try and land :3stars: guys...LOL

    Good question. My transfers have me a bit confuzzled. As I posted in a few places, I had 2 OLBs transfer away which only left me with 1 on my roster. Well, my "Y button detail list" shows me with 3 OLBs. Either:
    1. I was confused before and those 2 guys were already taken off of my roster when I saw that I had 3 guys with 2 of the tranferring.
    2. They're still showing on my roster now (unlikely).
    3. They didn't actually transfer somehow due to some bug.

    I also accepted a HB transfer from 'Zona. I don't know that he's showing up on my roster now (I really wish I could see my actual roster instead of just numbers of guys!) so I don't know if he's included or not.

    So, does anyone know if incoming transfers are already included in our "y button detail list". I would have to assume that they are (it would be stupid if they weren't).

    Week 4 of recruiting is up...Let's get our stuff done ASAP and try to advance as fast as we can. At this point we should all be down to just a few guys left to recruit. Update your list of recruits.
