    You guys still need invites. Hit me up.

    As far as recruiting goes, I think I have come up with this system that is fair for everyone:

    6-star team - can recruit anyone
    5-star team - cannot recruit top 50
    4-star team - cannot recruit top 75
    3-star team - cannot recruit top 100

    Guys switching to new teams are allowed to cut some guys on their initial roster. The recruiting classes the CPU have signed for some of them are dumb.

    I'm not sure this is restrictive enough. So I can recruit the 51st player and lower, no matter the state?

    I think it should just be limited to pipelines if the player is 4 star and above based on what I've just seen. There is still a lot of really good talent that I already put on my board outside the top 100. Granted I'm a 5 star school now and should have a little more weight to throw around but I still feel like its too much. Especially if we advance later tonight and out of the 10 guys I sent offers to, the majority are now miraculously interested. They are all 4 star guys but they are head and shoulders above some of the other guys I've spent all year recruiting.

    Thats just my take.

    Also, if I'm not mistaken, Jmustang is busy all weekend. We may need to text him to see if he can get to a computer or something for a few minutes.

    not enough Drift.... you should make it at least they have to stay within their pipeline states, while i would prefer if your are under a 5 star program you can only recruit top 100 players in your state...

    So.... this?

    6-star team - can recruit anyone
    5-star team - cannot recruit top 50, cannot recruit top 100 unless in pipeline state
    4-star team - cannot recruit top 75, cannot recruit top 150 unless in pipeline state
    3-star team - cannot recruit top 150

    That sounds good to me. I should be home around 9-10 EST tonight to accept my invite and get my shit done. I'll text you when I get home and let you know.

    Lets see how the guys I targeted come out. I literally offered to ten 4stars with real talent (some pipeline some not.) Depending on how interested they are after one week, I'll give you a more precise picture on my thoughts.

    Of course I'm just one person, what does everyone else think?

    We really need to get this laid out now. I don't want people to waste recruiting time in OFF1 on guys they aren't supposed to sign.

    Well I already spent time on them.

    I just cant give an honest opinion without seeing whatss going to happen. I think what you proposed is a step in the right direction. If we have to modify that further after this offeseason, we can.

    I don't think it should be based on overall rank. Strictly pipeline...

    6 star -anyone
    5 star - cannot recruit top 25 in pipeline
    4 star - cannot recruit top 50 in pipeline
    3 star - cannot recruit top 75 in pipeline
    2 star - cannot recruit top 100 in pipeline
    1 star - cannot recruit top 125 in pipeline

    * note this only applies to players indicating your school is not in their top 10 in preseason tasks and offseason recruiting

    Needs to be refined but something along these lines

    No, it's -this- offseason. It doesn't matter what results you see. It's what is fair to everyone. It's two independent things.

    I've gotten guys I shouldn't have every offseason with a 2-star and 3-star BGSU team. I have a good idea of where it should be. I think the last restriction I posted is pretty fair.

    I dont get this, so depending on how interested some player is in buffalo will determine where we land on this.

    Let's set the rule and if someone wasted time on a guy, that is tough.

    I've got no problem with what you proposed - my concern is it may not be strict enough.

    @lawdog - I'm not saying we should base it on what happens for me. I'm just saying that in order for me to give MY honest opinion, I want to see what happens to the 10 guys I already talked to.

    I agree if you wasted time on guys - tough shit.

    If everyone's good with Drift's proposal, lets get this settled because I'm sure people need to know ASAP in order to recruit.

    When you say top 50, you mean top 50 overall, right?

    Update:

    I think we'll be fine where we're at. Out of the 10 guys I offered, only 1 guy has put me in his top 10. I've since dropped everyone else from my board.

    *edit*

    Make sure we add this to the description/rules area so I can reference the shit down the road.
