    We are in season five and I was wondering if any of you guys actually improved your team yet. O M your not allowed to take part in this conversation.

    When I started with mizzou they were a B+ overall with an A- offense and a B defense if I recall correctly. Now we are straight B's in all categories even with a national championship. Seems it is really tough to stockpile talent. How are your teams doing?

    I started with a 3 star program, now up to a 6 star program with last year's National title. Im not sure I have improved that much on the sticks with the CPU still kicking my ass at least once a year. My RS senior class this year is pretty piss poor, and though I have 17 seniors, I think only 7 start. Im pretty sure Im a B overall, with a B+ defense and a B offense currently.

    Im not sure the ratings in my first year. Im hoping with last year's class, and if this year's class finishes strong, that the foundation for the next 3 years should be really solid. I just need one WR to make it all come together.

    I dont know what Virginia was originally but I'm pretty sure my team is about as good, if not better, then we were last year.

    I haven't improved Texas, they would probably do better if controlled by the CPU. However I do think I've improved as a player. It's kind of hard to judge going from Georgia Tech to Texas.

    My team this year is better than I started with (C/C/C) compared to (C/C/C-). Last year I had more talent than I do this year.

    Personally, I think I have gotten better at the game.

    I started as a C rated program across the board, and no we are B-/B/B- across the board, and i have 26 juniors in my program right now... next year we will take a small step forward before we take a dramatic tumble back to reality......

    It's pretty interesting how difficult EA has made it to really improve your team through recruiting. Last years game we'd all probably be A-'s by now. Props to EA.

    ya in past games, you could actually recruit guys who didnt even have you in their top 10. Just throw enough hours at em, and maybe a promise or 2 and watch you rise the ranks. this year, its tough to recruit a guy starting off out of the top 3 or 5 teams...

    You probably will, but we'll take one historic win for our program for a couple years of revenge-driven ass kickings.

    A pissed off BBJ is scary. I think he raped me last year after I beat him...I think he beat me by 50 the next time, LOL.

    I started with a decent to less than decent team. They all graduated, so now I'm trying to build them back. I'm recruiting players that will fit my team, so I think we will be solid for now and into the future.

    I've improved over last season where we only won 4 games. We were a 3-star program, and now I'm a 4-star program, and with some luck, and Mississippi State beating Ole Miss, I may be able to win the SEC this year.

    I had South Carolina up to a 5-star program, but the 4 win season killed that.

    In all serious Wake was a :3stars: program when I took over and are now :5stars:. We are a B-/B/B- and young with some decent talent. The alumni in Winston-Salem have enjoyed the most consecutive recruiting stint in the schools history. With a shot to play in the conference championship game this year, Wake could take a huge step this year, or simply fade back into mediocrity.

    I'm behind a few user teams in the ACC so it will be a while before my Cav's catch up I think-- just hope to keep user games close and have a chance at the end. That'll be my strategy for a while.

    My passing game really hasn't improved, but Im starting to play better defense and play smarter against the CPU. I have huge game with the CPU tonight, if I win it, I can probably jump into the top 5 heading into the MSU game. They will be extremely tough with Nick Griffin and Josh Manson, both are very quick and can score from anywhere on the field. If I can win that one, though I have a rematch with South Carolina, who I know is angling for a rematch after this year's game.

    Even though we have lost 5 games this year, i think my team will be much improved in the next few seasons.... we have peaks and valleys.... next year i will have a ton of seniors but only a handful of them will actually play.....most are dead weight i cant wait to get off the roster....my young players have been coming in and producing, so it should be interesting to see them progress...
