    Season 1 - Offseason!

    Alright fellas. We've advanced to the first week of the offseason.

    You have 24 hours from right now to do what you need to do before I advance to the first week of recruiting.

    Players Leaving is where we're at right now.

    Some people have guys graduating early that are lower than 95 overall and so guys have guys transferring that are way below 95 overall so I'm going to give you guys a chance to win those players back if you want.

    Just remember that if they are 95+ or have won a major award and are 90+, they are off limits.

    Masoli is coming back! No convincing needed! Going to have a lot of hype to live up to now...
    Edit: Also, Masoli now holds the NCAA single-season passer rating record!
    2nd Edit: Oregon will be switching playbooks next season to Miami(FL).

    spent alot of time convincing about 4 or 5 guys to stay. all below 90 so no worries about rule violations there.

    Lost Shipley, McCoy, and several other high rated players in the 90s and high 80s..looks like it's rebuild for Texas.

    got class til 10pm EST tonight...hopefully it's not adv to recruiting before I get back so I can see players transferring

    You already saw players transferring. No one is going to get anyone transferring to their school, only losing players.

    Well, right now, I'm waiting on Dru and bravejaf to finish up their stuff as both have guys transferring and I wouldn't want to screw them out of that.

    If they get it done in the next couple of hours, then we'll be advancing tonight, otherwise, it'll be tomorrow morning.

    I should be back up to speed now. TV purchased, Internet hooked up and couch delivered. Time-wise I am working from 8 am - 5 PM every day till Friday. After Friday I have a 3 day weekend, Columbus Day = bank holiday :). I do have to get some sleep tonight but will TRY to do recruiting before I leave in the morning.

    Correct. You're new prestige ratings don't take affect until next season.

    I did my week one recruiting this morning and there were only a few guys left to do theirs. I am only chasing a TE and C one is a soft already and the other should be a no problem to get signed so I could be completely done after this week.

    It looks like this may be a rebuilding year for the Sooners. Bradford, Murray and McCoy all left early, in addition to the slew of seniors I lost.

    I may need a 3-4 weeks to recruit, since the Oklahoma recruiting class wasn't in the greatest shape when I took over and I need to try and fill some specific holes this offseason. I have all my 5 star spots open and 2 4 star spots (which will probably be filled by week 2), but I'm pursuing a number of 3 star guys to fill out the depth chart. I currently have 50 players on the roster and only 9 commits.

    Don't worry fellas. You'll have all of preseason recruiting available to you. I'm not going to speed past things cause I knew some of you would get hit hard with transfers and early draft leavers so you will definitely have the time needed to get some of those holes filled.

    Just know for future reference that if you have a redshirted sophomore or a junior that's playing very well, expect him to decide to leave early, especially if you're one of the really big schools that normally has guys leaving early.

    I got lucky in that I was able to coax both of my junior receivers back and that Joe McKnight decided to stick around for his senior season so I've got back pretty much everyone.

    Mors correct me if Im wrong on this, but Dru if you dont get those 5 star spots filled you can add that to 4 star players. say you have the six 5 star players and get 4 of them, 2 left over and there isnt anymore you can give those 2 schollies to 4 star or lower players.

    Yeah, I was expecting to lose Murray and Bradford. Losing McCoy hurt, I was hoping he might decide to not go pro. I was able to talk my starting FS (89 rated - forget his name) into staying, which was nice.

    I feel pretty good about Jones at QB and Calhoun at RB for next year, as they'll fit my style of play pretty well. I'm more concerned about losing Gresham at TE. I don't think I have a TE to replace him with, which will hurt.
