    Season 1 Recruiting - 2010/11

    Looks like their could be a couple of user battles brewing over some decent prospects (taken lightly of course).

    We really need some defensive help, so that is where I'll be focused. Need to get some depth together, pronto!

    I signed two players the first week. I think one was a 2-star and the other a 3-star. I'm at work, so I don't know for sure until I log onto the Dynasty Wire.

    I am wasting my time trying to land 2 5*, but hey if i get them its not wasting time(y)

    I have a few select guys with multiple users, but other than that i am the only one on my list(assuming it takes Bond some time to settle for 3 stars).

    just to clarify, we are allowing promises this season right? If we stop allowing them, I am assuming Drifter will just post a message stating that.

    Yes promises are allowed for this 1st season to see if it gives us a huge advantage over the CPU I believe.

    The problem is that I fear most of the computer teams over user teams...

    Wake signed two :3stars: in week 1. Probably going to be our only commitments for a while.

    Miss St picked up 2 week 1 commitments from 3 star kids, which will be really helpful, as I have 18 seniors.

    Ole Miss picked up a commit from 4 star MLB out of LA, in fact he was the number 2 player on Ole Miss' board. He is an ESPN Top 150 member, and is one of only 3 players in the top 150 that is even remotely interested in Ole Miss, so Im pretty stoked.

    It was a need position, so that is good as well. Didn't pick up any additional commits, and am going after one 5 star player in Trevor Archer out of MS, that has me in his top 5. I need a DT, and he fits the bill.

    I have 18 scholarships this year, so lots of holes to fill.

    Ole Miss > than every other Deuce team but Texas by a mile.

    I pretty much didn't bother recruiting anybody who had Ole Miss above Miss St, as the Rebs have higher prestige and better pitches.

    In the three or four offline dynasties I started with Ole Miss, I usually had 1 top 150 interested in me, and never a :5stars: player.

    I guess I just got a little lucky? (y)

    I don't think Im recruiting anyone outside my pipeline states. I really want to keep my pipeline states. LA, AL, MS, GA and FL are really solid pipeline states, and I don't want to lose any of them.

    Im interested to see who the major programs go after in week 1.

    I felt pretty good that Miss St had MS and AL as pipelines, figured it was better than just one state.

    Oh well, maybe we can break some players legs on Ole Miss later this year {looking for player injury cheat codes....}.

    I assumed most people had 3-4 pipeline states. Is 5 a lot? I think you only need 5-6 from one state to make it a pipeline. At least I think that is case.

    MSU recruits MS almost exclusively, OM reaches out to other states a lot. I was suprised by GA and LA, and I doubt they will be pipeline states unless I sign a few kids from there this year.

    Just finished my recruiting online while at work hahaha...I love this game!!!!

    Mizzou had no instant commits this week and is disappointed to see that it has some serious competition from KSU for some of the talent they need. Should be fun though.

    As for pipelines, I was excited when I had Missouri and Texas. 5 is ridiculous. I'm thinking I'll possibly add IL by year 2, not that it's a hot bed of talent or anything though.

    Most schools that I've seen so far (even the good ones) have maybe 3 or 4 pipelines. The only other school I've seen with 5 is Michigan. 5 pipeline states with the schools we are using is a haul. I'd be shocked if anyone else has more than 3, and would expect most have 1 or 2.

    I was hoping to spread out and try and get another pipeline state this year, but with 18 seniors and limited depth, I have to just focus on getting guys who want to play at MSU (which ain't many). My LB corp is going to be sorry next year, I lose 6 seniors and only have one junior and one sophomore in the depth chart.
