    Is it me or did the guy (Luke) that said he was taking the 4star off his board cuz it was too unrealistic while continually waving that same realistic flag just score the #26 class in the country? lol..

    Congrats. We all did pretty darn well and I, for one, thought recruiting was a blast.

    As for numbers, everyone but Luke was under. But let me say: yes, the cpu signed a few guys for a bunch of folks. I for one, have even now while I sit here looking at the screen only 18 guys on my board but somehow signed 21. I knew I would have 18 and yet signed 21... for instance a qb I've never even seen or recruited.

    But...

    We do need to remedy the 2 4 stars (and give Luke and Weave the chance to be honest and say if this is what in fact happened). But either way, the 4 star needs to be cut. Weave knows that.

    As for the others, well done. We did WAY too well and will have new recruiting rules accordingly (no 4 stars I imagine will be obvious this year... other rules might follow).

    Where we ended up:

    Please understand again, that regardless of what I said before about cuts, everyone CAN cut down to 68 but NOT below. if you are starting with below 68, you will add walk-ons and you still CAN NOT cut below 68. Understand this.

    Yeah looking over my class I should've signed 23. 2 dudes an OLB & WR were never on my board. Never offered, randomly committed.

    Kind of lame I signed the #26 class. Alot of the recruits you guys have posted are beasts don't think I got any like that, alot of solid guys.

    Look forward to tougher restrictions.

    Yessir, will do.

    Now for restrictions I think we should limit the 3* to like 12-15. Possibly less? I want it to be fun but also realistic at same time obvious everyone does. What were you think Heath?

    That 6-3 corner you were going after I took him off my board. I was far behind somebody and couldn't catch up. Sick job getting him.

    You and I both were looking under the same rocks for treasure...Heath I was going to tell you about the QB from CA the 4 star but before I could tell you he was a soft commit to KSU. Guys If I find a player that you can use I'm going to tell you!

    We advanced before I could get my recruits on my team page. So I will have to figure out how to get their exact info...

    I changed SO FS Champ Lewis 57 overall to SS now he is a 59 overall this doesn't affect my Starters but gives me depth since I lose 3 SS after this season. That's my only change. I have a stockpile of WR. I'm making cuts at the QB and WR position. This season I will use a Return Specialist to prevent the injuries that I had last year in the kick return game.

    I also changed ATH Josh Mason 78 overall to QB and he is now a 79 overall as a QB and he will compete for the starting job..There will be QB cuts, this was decided when I threw 6 INTS against TROY!

    Somebody Text me once you guys start this craziness later.

    Nothing like staying up till 12, because some of you jackasses are taking your sweet ass time, then I wake up to this BS.

    As for my second 4 star Blanks:

    I signed my 4 star (Whitehead, the one that I was showing you guys) in week 4. On week 5, I had 1 player on my board, a JUCO punter. I NEVER OFFERED EVEN BLANKS, he was completely removed from my board the minute that Whitehead listed me as first, because I knew that I was getting him. I recruited Whitehead since day 1. Why would I offer a second four star knowing I'd get one. I even texted Heath earlier for the scholarship limits. Blanks will obviously be removed from my roster.

    Here are my dynasty emails, feel free to check yours too.
    None of my dynasty emails ever show him as a commit to me:
    Week 4 Signings (before I signed my 4 star Whitehead)

    Week 5 signings (after signing Whitehead)

    Screen Shot 2012-08-04 at 6.08.04 AM.png

    Please notice NO ONE NAMED BLANKS!

    Signing Day:

    Screen Shot 2012-08-04 at 6.07.47 AM.png

    Still no Blanks, even on signing day.

    Please check my recruiting and go back and look through every week, as I actually posted my signings weekly, you WILL NOT SEE HIS NAME!

    I am extremely frustrated right now. Especially having to wait up just to get this done and now people are ready to drop the hammer on me for something I did not do.

    No position changes right now. But I can't seem to find my one 4 star ATH during the position changes part.

    Where did he go? I know I signed him.

    Here's the 4 star that I could have had.

    And I still can't believe that I led that shithole to 5 wins, a 4 star recruit and the #56 recruiting class in the nation only to get fired. I explained the whole situation to my 5 year old son, and now he HATES anything Akron. lol

    ,
    We all got played yours was documented last night in conversation, you recruited too many diamonds, emeralds and other previous gems for someone to think you tried anything illegal. But I'm still on the other side and i think its realistic to be able to atleast recruit a 2 4 star athletes to our teams even if they are local and a need player or something...

    But we did discuss this and we believe you, don't get frustrated because good kids chose you. Is the kid at least a LEGIT 4 star meaning 73 or higher and scouted?

    It's all mental you can take the 4 Star out and we still would have done just as well. The 4 star that I signed was a 78 but the other two that I had followed were a 72 and 66 after being scouted. I've seen guys who signed 3 stars who are 73 or better. So I just don't want up to get caught up on the 4 star hype. If you get a homegrown/pipeline 4 star and your top 50 in the nation, guys its realistic. Heath you saw the rise of VT football and they did it with 3 and 4 star homegrown talent. 1 4 star isn't making us that much better just being real...

    If I get a kid who 73 and a 3 star and I red shirt him he is a 4 star when he hits the field, right

    If I get a kid who is 75 and a 4 star and he starts day one does it really change the program?

    I'm cool either way just saying.
