You know, I honestly don't remember why. It was so long ago, I barely remember doing it. I just remember that you could. I THINK it might have been simply that a D3 search will only return a max of 300 players and there were always more than 300 recruits. You could NOT use the trick to bring up more than 300, but it did tell you that there were some that you were not seeing in that particular search, based on the ranking of whatever rating or stat you were searching by. Why we felt this was an advantage, I honestly can't remember, maybe just because we could do it, lol.
