2/26/2013 10:29 AM
This is my first time playing HD. Typically I play EA sports college basketball/football. When recruiting with those games you get a set budget every week. For some reason I thought that was the case here and blew the majority of my budget within the first day.

My problem now is I'm broke and I have D2 players who I previously recruited emailing me for a scholarship offer and I don't have enough money to even make an offer. Am I screwed or is there any way to muster up a couple hundred bucks and salvage my recruiting class?

Any help would much appreciated.

Screwed.  Sorry, live and learn.  Everyone has some pretty bad first season recruiting stories.

There's a possibility that your assistant will sign some players, but I can't recall the rules around that.

*edit: looks like that only happens for a team that hasn't put forth any recruiting effort - a ghost ship is assumed and all but two openings are filled.  So looks like  you'll be rolling w/ a 7 man rotation this season.  Better play lots of slowdown.

Sorry, there's no more money available until next season.

All new coaches make mistakes in this game. You'll do much better next time

It's not the end of the world.   You signed three, you'll have two walk ons (who will be unplayable).  The good news is you'll get more money next season because you'll get 3k to replace each walk on.

This probably goes without saying, but NEVER offer your walk-ons a scholarship.
