Interested in expert opinion and advice. Please feel free to sitemail me or reply in this post. I welcome and appreciate in advance, all feedback and suggestions.
I'm taking over a team that has been SIM-ran for I think 17 seasons. The team has won 5 games in the last 5 seasons (8 in the last 10). I am aware that I will need to be patient in recruiting, and make sure that I fill my roster with high-potential/WE players; and that I will need to schedule some easy OOC games for next season (the schedule for the current season was already established). My question is, does being a BCS school (albeit with a terrible recent history) give me an advantage over more successful non-BCS schools when it comes to recruiting?
Once again, I know to be patient and definitely not battle with any "Elites" for recruits, but is it feasible to battle a decent program from a non-BCS conference? I don't want to set my sights too high, but don't want to shy away from battles that I might have been able to win had I tried. How hard will it be to recruit in the southeast with my team?
Thanks in advance.
