    Thanks for the welcome. I'll write up more once I get a team picked.

    Here are my standard expectations no matter what team:
    I run Stanford's offense and a 4-2-5 defense once I have the talent to support it. Tight Ends are at a premium in my offense, with two on the field more than half the time.
    I have very specific goals and individual player criteria that must be met not only annually but weekly. Here's what Gator fans can expect from us:
    30 points
    200 yards passing
    150 yards rushing, with at least three players getting 5 carries each. Main back getting 20 carries
    Win Time of Possession battle by at least 2.5 minutes
    Win Turnover battle
    Force at least 2 turnovers
    4 game changing plays (long TD, forced turnover, stop inside 10 yard line, holding team to field goal after offensive turnover)

    Individual players will be benched if the following are not achieved in consecutive weeks
    QBs: 55% completion percentage, no more than 2 INT. I plan to run two deep with QBs and possibly go to a Spurrier style rotation
    RBs: fumbles in consecutive games (recovered or not)
    WRs/TEs: 2 drops in consecutive games
    O-line: Must score a positive +/- score (sacks are -2, pancakes +1, subjective scoring on how plays go to their side)

    Defensive players are not graded

    Will be recruiting local kids mainly, with a key on quicker than fast players with size. I'm a big Height Weight Speed guy
    Thanks

    As expected my board is full of DTs DEs and QBs. Recruiting is a mess. Can i please get a break from recruiting rules to clean it up and start fresh next season?

    It's not my active roster so much. It's ok. Must have been a user on this team. But my recruiting board was full of DTs and DEs. Of the 35 spots only 12 were not DT DE or QB. My concern is that six weeks in I'm only in decent shape recruiting wise on those players. I'm hoping to be able to sign a couple at those positions an weed them out, also hold sOme scholarships for off season and pray for luck on a decent wide receiver. Just asking to be able to recruit whatever decent players I can and start fresh next season completely compliant.

    we had a user for Penn st. and when we restarted he only played like 3 games before he left due to personal issues. everything else has been cpu controlled.
