    I'm gonna get basically my whole class this week. Im still in the running for 5 or 6 4 stars. Unfortuantely, Arky only has 3 stars of prestige, which kills them in recruiting. Getting more than a handful of 4 stars is doing pretty well. Getting 6 would be awesome. Not to mention the bump I will get next year after winning the BCS championship :smile2:

    To win the NC this year, you'll have to earn it. You still play Von Snoot and whoever ends up #2.

    True true. So far so good tho. and a consolation BCS bowl is totally possible with only one loss. Which should still bump me up in recruiting.

    It's a bit worrisome that both my punter and kicker are seniors and that I don't have a commitment at either position yet. Oh well, I bet a backup linebacker can probably kick, right?

    You better go nuts in the offseason recruitment period and sign any kicker of any level that you can. Or start now. Walk ons are godawful and the lack of decent kicking recruits is probably the biggest annoyance this year. They all suck and it is hard as hell to land one. In my offseason I just had to land a JUCO JR K to keep my team from being totally screwed. I will sadly have NO punter beyond whatever walk on scrub they stick me with.

    You need to try and get whatever you can, because like SnowBuff said, walkons will kill you if that's what you settle for. This was kind of a problem area last year, because you could never find any kicker or punter as good as the guy who leaves, so after a few years of Dynasty no one can make a +45 yd FG.
