    Very cool. I like it a lot, it seems a lot more fun and interactive than last years at least.

    It looks like there is the capability for a lot of movement on a player's board from week to week which I think is awesome

    I think its basically rolling up negative recruiting and adding more to the old way. Should be cool.

    The video did a good job of explaining the feature. I was a little confused by previous blog post but I now have a pretty good understanding on recruiting.

    Agreed. The blog was just confusing. Seeing it action makes we really excited about how intense recruting will be this year.

    My impression was that it is gonna be based a lot on luck now rather than skill. I hope I'm wrong but if it's close and one guy gets 6 good pitches on the random pitches that pop up and another guy gets 3 good ones.. Wow you have no shot and it had nothing to do with recruiting skill whatsoever.

    That's true but I think some skill will come in when to use the change the pitch and use some of the other options available. I don't really like that there is that much of a dice roll involved week to week but I think it at least adds a new skill in using your extra options.

    I see where you're coming from....

    I think and hope that it will actually still be strategy involved. First we still do control how much time we spend with each recruit, and who we do call. Even though random topics come up during the phone call I still think there may be some strategy... Do you hard sell early, or do you try to discover wants more important? Discovering what's more important may set you behind early, but may compensate down the road if it turns into a tight battle for the recruit. Also you do get 3 change subjects, so knowing when to use them could play apart in strategy. We'll have to wait to see, but I am hoping the benefits are way greater than any negatives the new feature may have.

    I agree its looks like a roll of the dice. That said the old way needed to change and this looks good.

    This game has me excited for a release for the first time in a long time.

    I actually like the random pitch thing. User vs. User recruiting will be a lot more interesting because it gives both schools an opprotunity for the most part because the "better" school just can't snatch anybody they want. We all know the Big 6 in the video game world.

    Like it a lot. This is gonna be fun going up against 11 other guys for good recruits. I still want to see how the WWW is gonna affect this process as well the recruiting slider I wish we could see what these sliders actually do.

    Agreed. The random pitch thing changes everything. Now hopefully a recruits decision will be based on your actual school strength and performance and not just on who puts the most 'hours' in. Also.... bitch hoes can't advance forward and cheat. I like it.

    I guess the fundamental question to the community is then, how would you weigh the importance of what actually reels in a prospect? Would you rather it be mostly weighted towards "skill," however you want to define it, or would you rather it be weighted more towards luck of the dice (in this case its a what, 12 sided die that determines the pitch?)

    I agree with this. Having something different this year is a good thing. It looks like more fun than the old way. Maybe not the best way, but it looks like fun. Especially for an OD where you're battling your league guys for recruits.

    I like this better because it makes it seem like the prospect is the one asking the questions about the school, and not the coach dictating conversation with the same pitches over and over again.

    I like the random pitches a lot too.

    Say, you have 2 schools competing, 1 is a power house with mostly As and A+s and a mid school with a few As and a bunch of Bs. In '10, if the mid school had highs/very highs for his As, then he's just as strong as the power school. In '11, with random pitches, there's a better chance that the power house school will have his good pitches selected (because he has more of them) while the mid school will have more Bs selected and thus won't get as many points as the power school. This should make it great when you're recruiting against powerhouse CPU teams.

    Any changes that make recruiting more realistic by having the better schools get the better recruits is a great thing in my opinion.

    I read alotta posts that have the word "skill" in it. The recruiting in '10 is nothing close to being skillful. It was dry to say the least. All I honestly do (controlling Tennessee/Nebraska) is head to my "A" topics and find their "Very High" and "Most" and mash away. I actually know the points (we all probably do) that will flash to let you know ahead of time if its' going to be a hit or not.


    I said all that to say: Change is Good.

    Yep....

    Got this post quote from another board....

    Should make recruiting very fun in my CTL league(y) From the little guy perspective it is very rewarding in those situations when you do beat out a powerhouse team, because it is a challenging to accomplish.

    Thanks.... I needed a great laugh today. On top of that, Coach Williams is guaranteeing you that Fresno St. will recruit a target of yours out of Wyoming. Just know you've been warned.
