    Recruit Talk

    Wanted to get some recruiting chatter goin. I read other dynasties recruiting threads cause I find them hysterical and so relative to my own dramatic swings of exuberence/misery going after fictional 17 year olds.

    For starters I am stoked for my first signee, #6 WR Chris Stephens. Had him #2 on my board even though he won't make an impact next season but I really like him in the slot in 2-3 years. He WILL be highsteppin on some of you in the coming seasons.

    My bust so far was the #11 QB Tim Herron who had B+ speed and acceleration, B- agility and C awareness. He would have started for me next year, but unfortunately, the little prick signed with Ole Miss.

    That led me to find a sleeper QB who has a user #1 but ain't even gonna give the kid a whiff. He may be a 1 year project but will start in '12 unless another QB on my roster makes some huge strides.

    Pulling down QB EJ Carter before week 1 was huge because if he would have waited that 50 point loss would have scared him away from Gville.

    Two 4 stars, double last years haul. I am only going after 5 star recruits this year. A small amount of elite recruits to replace the outgoing crop.

    And your going to end up with a class that resembles last year's class with that mentality... plus your going against the whole SEC, Texas, and Miami/FSU... you'll have your work cut out for you.

    Last year I went after 35 people, and spent time on them equally. This year...new strategy. Also, my class this year is 200% better than last years class. When you can produce a 200% better class than last years, THEN we can talk. 200%!

    Well looks like I don't have to worry about recruiting against LSU...I got 0 5* on my board. Now that I think about it, I have yet to land a 5* guy in any dynasty.

    Anybody elses pitches get worse this year? I dropped in 3 categories I believe, but went up on 1 of the coaching pitches, lol.

    My recruiting went to crap because my season tanked after JJ got injured. If I can keep up a little winning streak here, go 4-0, I will snag a 5*.

    I dropped in Program Stability, which I find odd considering I'm still coaching there.

    I wonder if the restart had anything to do with it. Auburn was already a C+ so i doubt it would have affected me.

    FSUs went down since their prestige went down.

    I whiffed on week 2 and my visits are gonna suck. I'm away and have byes weeks 5-9. Best I can do is week 10 and it's not a rival. I'm afraid to wait till the Bama game as others may snag my guys and I'll probably get my doors blown off.

    Added a 2 more guys to my board I think may help and 1 more guy for fun cause his measurable are crazy.

    yeah its like when you got a lot of recruits at a game, EA turns up the BS it all makes sense now, even vs the cpu that happens.
