I started to get the hang of recruiting and ended up with the #1 overall class. I only signed 21 players, but it beat the hell out of my first year of recruiting.
how many did you sign during the regular season and how many in the off-season?
I've been playing as DC for Georgia State, and like another poster stated, I have to basically add guys to my board from adjoining states then i see which ones have the best bonuses to keep and go after. I'm also Les Miles and yeah, it really took the first year of screwing up recruiting to understand it. Think this second season is about fine tuning and then hopefully be ok for third season.
I find D is a biiiaatttcchhhh, especially with a shite team. When I finally get stops and third and long, the DBs leave 1 guy uncovered for an easy conversion. I also have a monster of a time trying to get my D player off of a block. I try using the right stick for the moves but nothing is consistent. In the old games you could use the left stick and pull back away from the blocker and get off the block.
I really haven't enjoyed this game as much, but still play for the challenge and hope that i'll improve on it. My Georgia State team improved with ratings from year 1 to year 2, but my record is worse (halfway through season). Seems like my O can never do a damn thing.
Will the CPU do any recruiting for you like past games if you don't allocate all points? I've been recruiting the whole class as the DC and wondererd if i need to just choose my D players to go after.
I wanted to turn the 1* school into a power, so i didn't leave for other DC opportunities after season 1. Hoped to stay an be promoted from within. Is it best to take the better job at higher position as a OC/DC to improve the coach then come back to small school as HC?
