    Recruiting Wars

    Wow, last night I setup my recruiting board and I noticed some prospects are going to be fought over to the death. I seen multiple prospects with 4 or more user controlled teams in their Top 10 list lol. With the C-USA and MAC being so close geographically its bound to happen every year. Its going to be fun recruiting.

    I noticed this as well. I actually passed on a few recruits because of how many user controlled teams were in front of me. I did go after a few of the guys who were better fits for my schemes, but fringe guys won't be hearing from me this season.

    Yeah me too. Skipped a few, but also took up a few who had juggernaut teams ahead of me because I figured the big schools wouldn't recruit them as hard.

    4* recruits are gonna be tough to get at this level. So far I have only found 1 that has Southern Miss in the top 3.

    In my other online dynasty, zeroes to heroes, we had to choose CUSA, MAC or WAC teams.. No juggernauts like Utah, Boise St., Houston, etc.

    I find recruiting to not be TOO difficult because like mickey said, the big school dont go for the 3* guys right off the bat, so it's easier to sign a few.

    Competing with a user controller Houston won't be easy though.. or similar bigger name CUSA/MAC schools.

    Yeah Houston has me pretty worried, but hopefully we won't share too many recruits.

    I was shocked to see a 4* MLB with me in his Top 8 behind other BCS power programs. It's my only 4* guy with interest and he is a home state talent so I have a shot, still as a 2* school with a history like Temple's I didn't think 1 good season would be netting me any 4* recruits. We'll have to see how things go with him. Even though he is a coverage linebacker that has me drooling, I will jettison him in a heartbeat if things start to go south.

    Man the upside to Houston is that I could have filled my board with prospect who all have me as number 1. The downside my defense is so bad. That's why I took Houston--I want to rebuild a programs defense.

    I requested USF as a game next year only to work my way in, besides with Coach Milbut being from Florida I have ties, ie Greg Schiano....I'm in your state, plucking your recruits. (y)
