    Alright, we're doing this again more official style. Please if you aren't in the league (@Kasper), don't vote.

    Recruiting is messed up. On Heisman with UTSA, I have signed 1 4-star and like 13 3-stars. Problem with schools offering schollies. Shocker (EA is unreal. Honestly unreal).

    Other issues (zone coverages, cpu defense acting out their minds, etc) are prevalent.

    In other words, we need to wait for a patch.

    So what do we do in the meantime? My vote is Heisman/Heisman simple named rosters (imagine these will be out by tomorrow if not a day later) with no edits or updated ratings, etc. We'll just have fun, play a season and be patient.

    Thoughts?

    Do you think it might be possible that you are signing these guys cuz your team is 6-0? Maybe if you were 0-6 you wouldn't be signing these guys?

    If we start a season and the patch comes out in the middle of the season, will it take affect in our season? Or will we have to start over? If the patch will take intergrate with an on going season. I say we start a season with simple named rosters in a day or so and go for it.

    So what kind of recruits are you expecting to recruit? It may be more difficult becasue we will share conferances and recruting states. So are you saying recruting a 4 star and 13 3 stars is not realistic?

    my guess would be it would not take effect but I am not sure. As we all know, communication from EA isn't the greatest.

    As for why I'm signing, I'm sure my record as a little to do with it, but when you do it, you realize that its a huge issue: the computer isn't offering guys very much. Almost all of my guys have either just me as the offer or me and one other small school. It's definitely broken in that respect.

    for UTSA? lol... On Heisman I would have expected like one 3-star, eight 2-stars and the rest 1-stars. No way in hell a 4-star should be signing with our horrid teams.

    I think those numbers change with more USERs recruiting but on the flip side I remember in real life when ODU started their program in VA and they got decent recruits in the first couple of years.

    So if you Sim a Dynasty for the first 6 weeks. Then check the recruiting classes then how would our teams look? I've only looked at playbooks this past weekend.

    A tournament sounds fun. I say we go ahead and do one regardless.

    Well being the new guy not sure how much my opinion counts but a tourney would give us a chance to test out playbooks while getting a feel for the game.

    I think it'd be cool just for some warmup games and for us new guys, to get to know everybody. There's 12 of us so 4 will get a first round bye.
