So it is more in the picking than how many you pick (of course it does increase your odds of just getting lucky).

    Thinking and experimenting in this way is a good thing.
    My bro in Odessa kinda did this by accident this cycle. Still didn't understand how to recruit, put like 2 points on 15 guys to start with and is going to max two. He won't be maxing Barclay btw, he is confused about what a max is I believe. PilotDeac, I suggest you ask question here to all these experts if you still don't understand.

    I wouldn't do it unless I was a small program. Max 4 and drop 2 if you need to. A max is a huge advantage and the net is unpredictable.

    I found an error where a player in the excel file has a different name than online in the recruiting directory. Complete different...not even similar. Weird.

    I understand just fine brother. Had some confusion, but no more. I got this. Now lets hope I can nap some solid players

    Is it the player that some of the realist said was to dumb to be an actual name in a fantasy simulation game? awaken named one Mons Venus and it got changed to Roland Pope I believe. Kmoney went in and changed it after some guys complained. Probably the one you are referring to.

    Last max will be Bob Lindstrom r8

    If he comes in +4, I'll be disappointed in maxing him.
    If he's +5, happy.
    +6? ecstatic!

    I have him EgFGFe, and his scrimmages were all over the place. What did you guys get from him?

    Boca eeked out a 3 point win tonight over Rockford.

    Hutchings continues to play strong with 18 pts, goodwin starting at C this year has done well and contributed 17 pts. Holden in his first start had 14 at SG and Gonzalez at the point 12.

    Hutchings is showing improvement over last year's play and he'll be scary good next season if I can land some recruits.

    Speaking of which:

    Erin Atkins NR
    Michael Gonzalez NR
    Mo Poisson NR
    Rene Naquin (10)

    1/4 so far PH

    If it stays that way tomorrow, I'm going to be a very happy coach/recruiter.

    Edit: Surprisingly, my net is mostly non-existent in the top 75 as well! Only 2 out of 20 landed in the to rankings. Admittedly, I went a little more conservative on 1/4 of them to be safe, as I had expected at least 3 of my 4 maxes to be in the top 75.

    * Fingers Crossed for NRs tomorrow *

    Well there is hope in Flagstaff's season after all! We somehow pulled out a 74-73 victory over Frankfort. AP and Albert Stone combined for 43 and everyone else just pitched in just enough. AP got fouled with a second or two left and made 1-2 for the win. Great game awaken and I have no idea how we pulled it out. I'm sure you will be fine with it if your season ends up with a Championship in the case once again.

    Recruiting came in pretty solid for us. Deaver is NR, Naquin is 10, Yi is 42, and Doucette is 63. I'll take that as it's what I personally expected. Hope the guys on Doucette are not in conference 32 and i'll feel really solid about landing him. Oh and Naquin is killing it right now. Up to 26 PPG!

    Flint is maxing Perkins, Via (38), Stanger, and Clemmons (23).

    Two of my initial picks ended up in the top 40. Might have aimed too high.

  12. #372
    Damn you, computer, for giving me Jared Eveland instead of Angelo Pedigo! And shame on me for leaving it up to the computer. Frosh Pedigo lit up Sr Stockdale for a 23-8 advantage. Stone over Doyle 20-4. Pedigo tried to choke: only hitting 1 o 4 FT's down the stretch, but the one he hit was the game winner.

    Good game, tau. You still have my number. Good luck recruiting, too.

    Orlando Vance (36)
    Marvin Haynes NR
    Bob Lindstrom NR

    Net took some damage, but still is pretty good shape overall.

    Coaches, be sure to max your maxes before tomorrow mid-day when recruiting is pulled again (all leagues as some leagues turn over). The cpu recruits on Fridays and netters won't be getting any more points. Maxing now will let your NR's bubble up into the Top 75. If they don't, that's a good sign for you.

    So, it's looking like Via is a 5/5 or so? Hulett came in unranked, but I know I have company in the the form of Chicago. Boyd Cason was also unranked and would be a 4 year starter for me at SG if I were so lucky as to get him.

    Also, we got our first win over Duluth. If I were him, I'd be insulted. It's one of those one-off types of performances that happen, I guess. Duluth had a few too many 4-5 minute scoreless stretches that allow an inferior team to hang in. I can confirm those stretches weren't due to any defensive proficiency by Carbondale, given our defensive rankings. Hopefully, Ph, this is your one "head scratcher" and you have better luck in future games.

    Where to begin?

    1. My stud SG Ernest Morin scores over a point a minute...yet he only played 18 minutes.
    --I have my SGs set on Norm/Norm to try to keep them both fresh and get them around 26/14 minutes. Morin only played 18 minutes despite no injury and only 2 fouls. Now he did pick up 2 fouls in the 1st half and sat from around the 7 minute mark after playing 8 minutes. At that point, he had 11 pts. bSG Xavier Medley had 8 pts in 12 minutes. So then why do Morin and Medley split 10 minutes each in the 2nd half?

    2. My PGs held Carbondale's Norman Lewis to 6 pts in the 1st half in 15 minutes. Somehow he finished with 24 pts in 29 minutes.
    --Like I posted above, I've been struggling with what to do with Soph PG Eric Wright. He's been a good defender, but there's no point having a pass first PG who gives up a lot of points. He gave up 16 to Carbondale and 10 to Boca. I've done well with pass first PGs in the past, but those teams were stacked with scorers. This team has backcourt scorers and frontcourt rebounders. I'm have to consider going back to my senior PG rule and putting Adam Cox at PG.

    3. We had the ball with 17 seconds left and didn't call a timeout and didn't get a good shot off.
    -- Up 69-68, Carbondale's Kuhn missed a long 2-pointer with the shot clock running down. In perhaps a summary of the entire game, Jr C Peter Murphy grabbed the rebound dribbled all the way upcourt and heaved a 3-pointer with 5 seconds left. This is a player set to 3/1 only so he doesn't give up the ball on offensive rebounds. WTH?

    ----------

    At least recruiting is going well. None of my maxes are Top 75 and only 2 of my net are. Now that maxes are done I can be more specific why I really like my maxes.

    Dan Lash is an absolute stud defender. One my net players averaged 18 pts (52% fg), 4.8 ast, 1.7 to against other PGs. Against Lash he averaged 4.5 pts (24% fg), 2.8 ast, 4.9 to.

    Max Aaron Leadbetter had a similar fate. 14.5 pts, 4.3 ast, 1.0 to against others and 8.5 pts, 2.4 ast, 5.1 to against Lash. His percentages stayed solid which convinced me to max him. He's a 50-40-80 guy at worst.

    Fritz Curran was a beast at SG in scrimmages. Averaged 19.9 pts on 61/57/78 shooting.

    My projections did alright based on Saturday morning numbers. Out of the 146 players on my list, 9 were in the Top 10, 25 were in the Top 30 and 45 were in the Top 75.

    If somebody has Friday's Top 75, please post it or PM it to me.
