What I meant by small-minded was to be open to looking at an issue from multiple perspectives. The comment you make, "Any minimum needs to be expressed in effort and not in $$," is exactly what I mean. Why is it that you think that? I can guess that you are assuming that 3 home visits to a Cali player from UCLA should mean more than 1 visit from Miami but maybe recruits care more about the money spent on them than the time spent with them? I don't know but would be helpful if you offered some kind of reasoning. Let's try to close the loop holes that allow some to game the system in a way I am sure was never intended. How long would any college coach last if they offered 2-4x the number of open scholarships they have on day one of recruiting??? I guess I am completely at a loss for some people's failure to see the game as lopsided and that as the main reason for stagnation. If you want WIS to work on the game, it has to make sense for them financially. For that to happen, we need lots of new people willing to stick around beyond 1-2 seasons and that is going to take someone (WIS or US) finding out why that isn't happening now.
where do you look at things from multiple perspectives? i dont understand how in virtually every post, you demand something from other posters that you dont do yourself. practice what you preach, man!
why are you sure getting a guy to consider you for a couple visits is the game working in a way it was never intended? what does guys offering 2-4x the scholarships have to do with anything that was discussed earlier? also, how does fixing high d1 recruit generation get new people to stick around beyond 1-2 seasons, when they are still in d3 or maybe 1st season d2? im not saying its a bad idea to fix high d1, its just a bit like saying man, its cold out, lets name our child bathilda!!
at this point you've basically told people they need brilliant, well thought out ideas, to view every issue from multiple angles (what the hell is wrong with posting one viewpoint anyway, like, i think minimums should be based on effort instead of money - which just so happens to be how EVERYTHING else in the game works, but i guess from the perspective of a starving african child, thats irrelevant), to refrain from personal attacks, to thoroughly support every idea, to avoid laughing at newbies (lol), and most importantly, to agree with you or else to go post in another thread. id like to see you evaluate some of your prior posts by those same standards, should make for an interesting read!
