    Post here when you're done, just so we know.

    Note #1: New recruits ARE NOT bonus recruits. You can only go after them if you have the numbers, or if you missed on certain caliber guys in season. Guys who loaded up and have no room left may not chase these players.

    Note #2: Big Ten schools can recruit up to 71, but MAY NOT breach the 1-7 rules. Also, the new recruits bumped some of the in-season bonus guys into new spots, so refer to the bonus list before assuming a guy who ends in zero is a bonus guy, cuz he's not anymore.

    Arizona is done Week 1. A lot of nice players have been added and are available for the taking - none interested in the Wildcats. Nonetheless, I'll be living vicariously through you guys!

    I'm just gonna add my kicker and be done. My week one is over. By the end of week 2, I'll be done for the year.

    Check your roster online ego. Did you get any transfers?

    I'm done, and really you don't have to wait for me anymore. I've got 1 guy who has soft committed to me and that brings me to 70. So even if I don't get the committ, don't wait on me tonight.

    Yes you can. Recruit based on your in-season calculations. The CPU is just f-ing with us again. After all the end of year hosing, I'm ready to give guys a break. Let's just use it in modration, OK?

    My transfer failed. It says unable to finish accepting online dynasty invite at this time. Please try again later. Does anyone know what's going on?

    Try making a new coach with a different name than the one you used.

    I did not create a coach last year. So my coach rating will be a D.

    Try making one. I know the D rating would suck, but you're still freakin' 'Bama. Just an idea to see if it lets you in the league. It worked for me.

    Thanks for the advice. i talked with uagrad90 that plays with zeroes to heroes. he seems to think there are server errors right now. He is having difficulty uploading files to the EA server from his game he just played. He said it was lagging and pausing during his game also. I am going to wait a little longer and see if the server improves and if not i will try your suggestion.

    So wait, what if my bonus guy that committed isn't a bonus guy anymore and I'm filled at the 1-7 positions?

    Not at all. What I mean is, if guys just look at the numbers, they'll get a wrong idea of who the bonus guys are, since they got moved around by all the new names. I just want guys referring to the list and not the numbers when trying to figure out who is and isn't a bonus guy. Your bonus guy is still a bonus guy, and your numbers can still move in your favor because of it. The new guys, no matter where they fall on the list, are not bonus guys.

    Any guy on the list is still on the list. Those are the only bonus guys, and they can't be made otherwise.

    Make sense?

    Due to all the CPU hosing, I am waiting for everyone. We all feel a bit screwed, and I'm not going to make that even worse on anyone. Tomorrow we kick it into gear and try to finish. For now, let's get everyone back in the dynasty, and caught up. The rest can wait a day, even if Ego gets a case of the shakes. :)
