    What is that smell?!?

    What is that smell you may be asking yourself.

    Ooh, ooh that smell

    It's fairly strong

    Can't you smell that smell?

    I know I can smell that smell.

    Ooh, ooh that smell

    But what is that smell?

    The smell of death surrounds you.

    I believe that smell is the smell of impending recruiting sanctions for some school that uses this color!

    Wow i dont know what i was thinking, i just knew all of these guys were on my list and top 3 when i joined because that's who wildcatter was recruiting. All of them had been offered schollies already. I double checked to and thought for sure they were all Bonus. O well I must take the penalty. What is the Punishment for this crime? *braces self*

    I haven't been on yet either, someone want to fill me in? Guessing 2 signed non-bonus 5*'s?

    If that's the case, Hova, could you let me know which was signed first?

    Yup apparently OLB Richard Pratt was not a bonus when i was thinking he was

    I also signed FS Marcus Lawrence who i was thinking was my non bonus guy

    They both committed the same week, it has FS Lawrence listed first when it says my commits but it all happened the same week

    I signed a bonus 5 star and just signed my normal 5 star...I had a soft commit from another 5 star but have removed him from my list....this was all from JHeb (the soft commit and scholarship offers)...the only scholly I have offered was to the 5 star that just signed to me. Will I get punished if the soft commit signs? I never recruited hard for him since I really don't need him.

    Yup that is the same thing that happened to me. That's the problem with taking over teams midseason, its easy to fudge up your limits unintentionally

    Doesn't removing the guy from your board revoke the scholarship? Even if he's a soft commit I believe that is the case.

    I dont think so, once you offer the scholarship they can still sign if nobody else gets them

    That is the case indeed. If you go over the limit, there will be a penalty.

    Have you decided a penalty? Is it ok for me to recruit this week?

    Removing a recruit from your board guarantees he won't sign, even if he was already offered. I do this all the time.

    Hova, here's the deal. By coin flip (I actually had my wife flip a coin, she was annoyed when I wouldn't tell her why), Pratt (heads) was deemed the oversigned recruit. I promise I haven't looked online and have no idea which guy is better.

    OLB Pratt is ineligible, and gets buried on the roster until he transfers or graduates. Best case is he leaves in a year or two, worst is that he takes up a roster spot for 5.

    Also, next season (not this), you can't take advantage of 5* bonus guys. You can sign one, but it counts as your 1-5*. 4* bonus guys are fair game next year, and 4's and 5's are all ok this year.

    Not sure I worded that well, let me know if it doesn't make complete sense.

    Ya sucks that i wasn't responsible for the offers, but i should have caught it in time. I am just glad i didn't lose that FS. I would have felt that loss in my secondary for years

    We felt it was fair, because it was your responsibility to have found out who was on your board. At the same time, it was an honest mistake so we didn't want to death penalty you. I think this was a happy medium.
