I think more people play for free/low cost then you think but of course don't have that information except for those that put out their alts. I also think that this topic went from div3 recruiting to div2 recruiting at some point and agree that recruiting at the two are different. My point is really just about the math and I just don't understand how someone can have the funds to scout mutiple guys across the country at div 3. And finding those guys that do probably tells you they do the same thing at all the levels. I don't think my opinion should anger you and I'm not going to change my mind that those with championships with only one team in a world are true champions. I'll live in my fuzzy world where perception matters and others are welcome to live in their world where it doesn't.
tbird, i've scouted the entire country except california before at d3.
With 5 openings, carryover, and good conference postseason earnings, I missed the first 2 days of recruiting. The morning after signings, I scouted the entire country except Cali for ~$17,000, then signed 5 guys for under $1000 each. And I've done the same thing on slightly smaller scale (say, 40 states) several other times.
