    Was a really close game that came down to the end. Mike can do a write up if he wants since he won

    All I want to say is that ramirez was completely cool and understanding in this one. I got home an hour late. Had to pause a few times cause my fiancee was bothering me. Not once did he say a word or gripe. Totally cool about it all and I appreciate that and again apologize for being a Douche all night
    Good win ma n

    Guess this game looks more impressive after today's Purdue/Iowa outcome. Good win for the Illini.

    I am actually starting to like my team. It also helps that I'm starting to like the players I'm recruiting to Illinois.

    He doesn't go after many players he has to fight for. Never really has. Once in awhile yeah but he likes to take what he's given.

    How the hell do you know that shit? That is very true. If I see a user ahead of me then all bets are off. I am not using my minutes on a hopeless case. I figure I will land enough decent players to be good eventually. I have also played enough now that my game is starting to evolve. I will be tough very soon I believe.

    Yeah I take your approach myself mike. I can't compete with most of these schools because of my pitches. I may get into 3-4 battles Max per year. But I'd rather get those guys who can fit in my program and are good.

    Yes....MO I agree.......

    I always figure if I have the following: Speed at Rb, Accurate QB, and 1 player on defense that I really like. I will have a good chance to win.

    My teams have been doing this for 3 years and all I've heard is "he's not a good recruiter, he just gets players nobody wants".

    its a good strat Mike. Now put Illinois on the schedule please.

    well speaking only for myself I never said any such things. I like fighting for players that are worth it. Quantity < Quality IMO.

    Ya both of them have tough squads, they both already handed it to me this season.

    I cant recruit worth shit with Cinci. All of my pitches are Cs or C+s with a one B+. Im going to have a tough time keeping up with Pitt.

    The only way I'm going to get top recruits is if they happen to be from Cincinnati and want to stay close to home or if they want to play right away and i have a need at the position. Otherwise it looks like I need to settle for 3 star talent across the board.

    I was #1 on the 4 star ATH that went to Pitt for the first couple weeks, but I couldn't hold onto it only getting like 250 points a week.
