    I have a shot at a lot more good players at ND than I did at WVU or Baylor..... No surprise there.... Holy Alabama! He can't possibly have enough points to sign all of the elite players who have 'bama as their #1 choice!

    I'd say the same about you at ND. You are all over the top 100 players boards.

    I actually found the decision making tougher with USC than with Boise, it's harder to pick who to not pursue when you have a ton of good players interested.

    I agree that it is a little tougher when you want say 1 QB and like 6 are interested. Good problem to have though. :)

    I also agree that ND has a good amount of interested players, far more than I've had previously, but 'bama is like 1 or 2 on probably half or more of the top 30-40 players.

    No argument on Bama. recchem2000 should clean up in recruiting, he just needs to avoid CPU battles and stick to beating out the other users with his point bonuses.

    I hate only being able to scout 25%. I can only unlock 2 attributes at a time for lineman.

    I do like having 4 states instead of one as a pipeline.

    Dam Alajama and Notre Flame are all over the top 100 boards. It's going to be fun recruiting against them as well as LFU. :rolleyes: Maybe the Dawgs can get at least 1 :5stars: or 2 :4stars: I guess time will tell

    I had to absolutely gut my recruiting board this week. I don't like being the 5th best recruiting team in this reboot. ;)

    I have no idea what I'm doing recruiting..,too many choices I guess. Things were much simpler at ucla. I'm not complaining, just never had a team with this many good recruits interested. It wouldn't surprise me if I mess it somehow

    It started the minute I picked them...I'm not good at this game and I'm even worse at this version!

    This early in the file if you just stick to 10 guys you have a big bonus advantage in and pump 500 a week there you should be in good shape. Nobody will likely have more than 1 lockpick (if any) until the end of the season.

    Keep losing and they'll all lose interest!

    I miss last years recruiting. No instant commits anymore. If you have a home game in weeks 13, 14 or 15 you can just leap over and take recruits away. Then in the off season if you up by 500 and put 2000 on a recruit, he may still commit to the other dam school. Great ..my last home game is in week 11. :ROFLMAO:

    Then if your not Alabama, Florida or LSU in the SEC you might as well recruit in North Dakota to get someone interested in going to GA. Notre Dame recruits all over the dam world. Try to get a :4stars:or a :5stars: interested in you. Yes sure, once Alabama or LSU doesn't want them then you can have their leftovers. :eek::wtf:

    OK ....My rant about recruiting in this game has officially ended. Time to put on my BIG BOY pants and just remember that this is a VIDEO game. :cool:

    Uhhhhh, there are several kids I have already backed off on that had you above me - with you having a higher bonus. Georgia is a potential recruiting powerhouse, I did awesome with them last cycle.

    Really? You had good recruiting success with GA. Ok......Then maybe I just don't understand the ins and out of this just yet. Now I have to make my own dam folder on recruiting like I do some USERS just to make sure that I don't miss anything. Seemed like I don't have alot of points each week and Ala or LSU has 20-30 extra points per week. Then if they add 500 to that, then it's pretty hard to catch on.

    The cool thing about it is that it's new and I just need to spend more time learning the ins and out with it. Hell but it may be a MUTE point. I threw 4 dam picks in my game against South Carolina. That defense was all over the dam place. Plus 2 more picks in my week 1 game. Very fortunate to be 2-0 right now.

    If the theme of our last couple matchups holds you'll throw another 3-5 next time you play ND :p

    I did that just last night when I played ND with Oregon in your league bro. I threw 4 dam picks. My last 5 games in VARIOUS od's, I have thrown 14 INT's. :mad:That's just fu$#%ing INSANE. I need to get my shit together as I have a heavy dose of USER games coming up soon. :cool:
