It is a bout time we got rid of it! I cant stand seeing teams getting 20+ states due to more teams in a world!
i scout 20 states on a single team pretty regularly, especially in d1...
anyway, i think rails & co make a good point about FSS. it would alleviate a lot of the concern. i personally believe its a major element of strategy that has been added, one of the only ones, too. of course, potential shook players up a bit, you cant shape them in practice like you used to, so the whole element of valuing recruit's abilities different that rails talked about was enhanced, to some extent (also taken away from, from practice planning perspective and such - but it made it more important in recruiting itself).
i feel like between FSS and evals to find high/highs, there is a major tradeoff - use money to find the best players, or to battle for the best players. i really like that part of the game and would hate to see it go, personally. d1 recruiting was always this auction style, and it still is mostly, especially for top d1 teams. but for other d1 teams, you can choose to spend an extra 5-15K looking for better players you can get without such a fight, and its a perfectly viable strategy (and im really liking it over the past 6 months, actually). i dont like going back to the auction style recruiting with nothing else to add flavor. i guess evals to find high/highs would still exist, but still.
