    We had a little discussion about this earlier but nothing really got ironed out. With all of us starting as horrible teams, I was just curious as to the restrictions (if any) that will be placed on recruiting.

    There should definitely be some restrictions to make sure its kept realistic.

    Something like this (stolen from the duece) would be good.



    With the addition of 5/4 star caps and settling on a team size limit and number for cutting.

    I like that, but I would add a +2 rule to it as well.

    What do you mean? I think those should be a little more lenient, at least for the top programs.

    I think he means 72 on your roster instead of 70?

    And ya we can mess with the numbers. I just thought it was an interesting take on recruiting.

    +2 just limits the # of recruits you can bring in. Its usually (70 - <your roster size>) + (<your number of seniors> + 2) = Number of scholarships you have for the current years recruiting.

    I like that. It's simple, easy, and hopefully effective. 70 or 72 is whatever to me.

    Let's set it in stone then. I'll add it to our rules.

    And will the usual rule of only cutting true freshman or first year players will be in effect? I hope so.

    So, if I have a 62 OVR Jr behind a 77 OVR Jr and I recruit a 72 OVR Fr I cannot cut the 62 OVR Jr? Is it because, theoretically, he was given a 4-year scholarship and you have to honor that unless he breaks a team rule? What if I said I caught him banging the secretary in my office and found a rolled up dollar bill and a small compact mirror with a powdery white substance on it nearby?

    EDIT: Just noticed in the rules it says you cannot recruit Top 200 and above, nothing about 300 and 400. Which way are we rolling?

    Also, noticed it said 7 min qtrs. We were doing 8, right? I'd prefer to keep it at 8 (shhh bigtubb). :)

    I read that part lol. My question was why. However, it does say year 1 offseason you can cut anyone so...

    Because it's your first year with any control of your roster... just some added flexibility

    So as 2*s can we recruit anyone not in top 200 or not in top 300? Only says 200 in rules but said 300 when agreed upon in here...

    Yes we agreed last night in chat since we are 2/3 stars to even the playing field everyone can recruit up to top 200 players
