    Every week I pick one guy to spend a full 60 min on, 2 to spend 50 on, and the rest I dole out in 40 min chunks. I offer a schollie the first week, and hold on for dear life. Try to aim for guys you're higher with to start, and guys that live in a pipeline state.

    Unless I need a huge class, somewhere around 15 to start with. Almost always pipeline guys, unless I'm specifically trying to build/maintain a pipeline state (need min. 4 guys on your roster from a state to make it a pipeline and get bonus).

    Unless you're a 6* team with great pipelines, you won't get many that way. If you stick to 15 or so, you can spend more time on them each week. Only with someone like Auburn have I been able to get a dream class (about 20 4 and 5*s)
    Other tips: Always offer scholarships Week 1 to guys who have you as their #1 - you'll get a commit or three right away. In general, I don't think it matters when you offer, so I almost always offer early anyway. Schedule visits ideally when you are playing a ranked team and/or rival (pref both) and will win. Always negative recruit when you have an edge. Also, pay attention to your weekly bonuses (x2, padlock, or pink diamond). When you don't see the multiplier or the padlock, you have a pink diamond guy that you have to go find (only for that week). He'll be a 4 or 5 star guy - search for all prospects, sort by stars, and look through every profile (hit Y so you can see their face, then just stick down to go from guy to guy), and keep going through each guy until you see this:
    [​IMG]
    Add him, offer him, and you'll instantly be in his top 10 no matter who you are.

    Despite the fact that I suck balls at the game, I'm usually pretty good at recruiting. I hardly ever don't use my full 60 minutes on any call.

    So if you don't see a lock or x2 during your recruiting, there's automatically a pink diamond player available?

    Just played an absolutely crazy game. It was a total ****show for me in the first half. I was down 17-0 with ten seconds left in the 2nd Q and was going for a hail mary. I ended up getting sacked, fumbled and returned for a TD. 24-0 at half. I scored one TD in the 3rd and had pretty much given up. I couldn't pass worth a crap at all. 3 mins left in the 4th (24-7) and Miami was driving, I was about ready to give up and sim the game at this point. My safety jumps a route, pick 6. I have some life but still down 24-14 with 3 mins left. I end up forcing a fumble on the next drive and score a TD on 4th down. There was about 1:30 left and down 24-21. I go for the onsides and miraculously recover it. I then run the ball down the field with ease and get to Miami's 5 yard line. There's 15 seconds left and I'm stuffed at the goaline. I use my last Timeout. 7 seconds left and my last chance, I go for the win. My RB barely sneaks in for the TD. Game over (28-24). Amazing comeback

    I hate this game. Why can my offensive line not block long enough to allow my receivers to finish their routes? It's not even close. I get sacked before they even make any cuts. I must be doing something wrong, but I dunno what is. The only way I can move the ball is by running draws. But doing that over and over and over and over again is not only cheesy but boring. Anyway, it stops working after a while.

    Also, only attempt to sway on pitches when the prospect is visiting - if you are successful, you'll get a few other categories swayed

    Can I assume that you power-cycled your modem/router/PC and otherwise ruled out that the issue was your connection?

    yes. we both did. It was weird. Problem would be fine for a bit, then get progressively worse as time went on. Like the network was limiting our bandwidth after a bit.
