Yeah, since cheaters are gonna cheat why not just make it easy for them?
More than once in DII Tark, I've see some D3 school on a player from California with all High potentials. Makes me wonder......
MANY coaches have sent me sitemails, especially when i was new to d1 and kililng it, trying to get info on who i was going for, or to make other collusive arrangements, so they could avoid me. and actually, most of those coaches were single ID guys (or at least, i didnt know of their alt IDs, and i used to know most people with multiple IDs in tark, at least). oldresorter's stories of actual player drafting are pretty mind boggling, and his pushing i believe was a big part of fair play guidelines coming into existence, in the first place. the worst cheating that happens today in HD, IMO, is the same as it was all those years ago - its still collusion between d1 teams, between totally different human coaches, changing info and agreements on recruiting intentions, to get an upper hand in d1 recruiting.
the d3 coach on a high potential from california thing... i dont know, because d3 has some less money, but tons of d2 coaches scout local and then end up scouting big states. id guess states like CA, TX, FL get scouted way more by distance schools than small states. it just always seems to go, you are looking for a guy who looks good pre-scouting, and you find him in a big state, so then you check if there are any other promising guys in that state, and because its texas, well of course, there are. i probably get 80% of non local non international recruits at my d2 school in illinois, from CA, TX, and FL.
