So is there recruiting on Christmas?  I can't remember the last time this happened, so I am asking.  It looks like Allen recruiting is scheduled to either start on Xmas eve or Xmas.

Almost positive recruiting goes as usual, but I could be mistaken.

I think Allen recruiting should start on the 26th; NC games tomorrow, jobs Saturday through Monday, new coach signups start Tuesday (Christmas) and then recruiting Wednesday at 6.

I think it goes on as usual, there was a huge stink several years ago when they pushed it back on a couple of requests and I think they just stopped adjusting it. That being said, I'd have no problem if they put out a schedule Jan 1 and had a set group of days that no activity would take place.

If they made exceptions for one day they'd have to make exceptions for many more, so yes recruiting usually goes as scheduled no matter what day on the calander it falls out.

WifS stops for nothing, nor should it.

I am pretty sure it has been bumped for holidays before.
12/20/2012 2:30 PM
long ago it was bumped for acouple of holidays and the ripple effects led to complaints

they did one time arrange for a major engine update pause to happen at a holiday

It was at least 6 or 7 years ago that they stopped games on Christmas.   I remember because there was like 100 people on the live baseball game that day (there is normally about 10) all trying to get there WIS fix.

Yeah, I remember that.  I know game simming has run through the holidays for years now.  Has recruiting though ever been pushed back?  I think that may have happened because it is an easily manipulated change, and the huge majority in HD would prefer not recruiting on Xmas.

I don't know if the huge majority would prefer not to recruit on Christmas.   It's a helluva lot easier for me to recruit on Christmas Day than this weekend.

It was the day for giving of gifts, or Christmas boxes, to people outside the family and close circle of friends IE coworkers or employees, neighbors, etc.
