    I'm sure it's going to get heated for some prospects...

    Are we limiting recruiting? I think we shouldn't for the first couple seasons and see how it goes, just sayin :)

    Just in case we over sign, is it going to be a "last signed, first cut" policy or will this also be a free-for-all?

    Based on my testing I don't think oversigning is gonna be a huge issue. Recruiting is not easy.

    I agree with Dru. Plus, like real life coaches, you just cut the worst guys in camp..... I mean, for the guys at powerhouse schools, if you have 12 seniors and 2 juniors likely to go pro, once you hit about 16 you should probably sit tight..... but in my testing, only one year out of 8 did I really have a great class where I oversigned, and it was only like oversigning by 3 iirc

    Yeah, I signed 15 in the test year I did, but I lost out on 2 of the top 3 guys I really wanted and most of the guys I signed were 2 and 3 star guys that sucked but had me in their top 3. If guys chase nothing but 4 and 5 stars this year they are gonna get burned, at least early on before the coach skills add up.

    was there a way to spend more than 50 points scouting a recruit in the preseason?

    If you upgrade that skill to level 3 though, it gives you 100% of their attributes for the same 50 pts

    How is everyone's recruiting boards looking? I have already dropped the 2 highest ranked recruits I was chasing as it became obvious that I couldn't keep up with the CPU squads that were competing with me for them. Interestingly enough I don't have really any battles for recruits with anyone so far, the closest being one guy that has Cheez in his top 5 but I don't think he is really even recruiting him.

    From experience so far, you cant get too in love with any player or you get burned, and you have to stay patient.

    I've dropped several that OU is after as it seems OU had kitchen sink rank 3.

    They've got 700 pts (non bonus) going to a few.

    Agree, this year it seems like you really need to bite the bullet on some guys.
    Or I suppose hope you can hang on and dump 10k in the offseason...

    Not gonna lie, after the way my defense has performed the first 2 games (where we can't stop the pass...or the run...or tackle....or get off blocks....other than that we're awesome) I'm not looking forward to my upcoming games with you, whygodwhy1111 and SatansAngel1104. You guys may drop 50 each on me.

    By the way, can I say that as tough as it is, I LOVE the new recruiting. Especially how you can continually fiddle with the point allocations until the advance. I have altered my board and point allocations at least 4-5 teams each in weeks 1 and 2.

    Bill can pass really well.

    My team can't rush the passer or cover/make plays in space.

    Needless to say I'm concerned. I may just let him whoop the CPU and have a few drinks instead. :D
