    One of the reasons we wanted to have everyone stay close was so that we're all fighting over the same recruits. I currently have 32 guys on my board and not a single solitary one of them has an offer from another user.

    Is this the norm and none of us are actually in user v. user recruiting battles, or are some of you actually dueling over the same recruits like we originally intended?

    Yeah. I had to stay away from Texas cause i don't have a pipeline like i thought i would and i don't have Utah so most of my guys are Cali born.

    Yes. I tried to avoid user battles unless ti was a guy I really needed. I have dealt with NCSU and UVA in recruiting areas. I have lost battles to each :(

    I'm fighting with Darkwing over a couple. I see Baylor on the list a couple of times as well, usually trailing him. Don't know how the ACC is looking.

    I see my team with a top 10 class to date and 13 recruits.

    What am I doing right?

    I know right. I think it has more to do with the number of guys who targeted me as there number 1 school and I lucked out with the number of gems that I got.

    Feeling good. I have a lot of guys on the O and D line. A QB. A pair of CB's, one that is a +10. Really excited.

    You need to update the recruit tracker. None of those guys are listed in it.

    Yeah, I am going to do it tomorrow. I have only been home 36 hours so it wasnt a top priority.

    I beat out UNC for a TE this week. I had a decent lead, but he did have an offer from UNC. It looks like I should beat out NC State for a CB, as well. I tried creeping up on a WR that UVA was going after, but it looks like I'll be too late to get him.

    I'm thinking the reason that I'm not battling anyone is probably because my rivals are going after Texas (I don't know that to be true) while I only have 5 Texas kids on my board (1 of which has signed).

    Your SMU why wouldn't you recruit Texas super hard? If you aren't recruiting there where are you recruiting.

    I recruit the hell out of Maryland and Virginia.

    Why would I tell you where I'm recruiting?

    If it makes you feel any better, TX is tied with another state for most guys on my board.

    I didnt know this really mattered as far as what states you were recruiting. I just recruit the NorthEast as that is where most of my pipelines (IDK why I have a Georgia pipeline)

    I just thought Texas Schools recruit like 95% texas kids. I know im OKSU in another LG and I recruit Texas like a fiend

    I can't tell you all my secrets. After that game last night, I'm going to have to step it up on the recruiting trail to keep pace in the ACC.

    Feel like im out of the loop here LOL

    And Dakota I was shocked you played Rocco the whole way. I played with UVA in the tourny and I thought he sucked. I used Watford and Sims. I know you cant use Sims but I thought Watford was worlds better than Rocco

    North Dakota?
    Alaska?
    South Dakota?
    Wyoming?
    Montana?

    Those are my big target states.
