My Minnesota, Dulth squad is one of those DII Final Four teams, and the press has worked out wonderfully for me since I took over the team four seasons ago (an NT title game appearance, a PI championship, an NT second round, and now another Final Four). In fact, it's the team I've had the most success with. Some of that credit goes to tcole23 who left me a fantastic squad to work with, but this season's team are all my recruits.
Still, I'm not sure how much of the team's success is attributable to the press. My teams which run M2M seem not to do as well, but then maybe I didn't recruit as well or something else is off, too.
