"Second is purely a personal convenience issue, getting to the computer to recruit in the 2 hour window they give you can be a pain. So, while ten teams may be enough, having to get on while making dinner/eating dinner/cleaning up/giving daughter a bath/putting daughter to bed 10 different times isn't feasible."
This was the inherent advantage I was referring to.
I've got 2 young kids (2 and 5). I understand what you are saying here, but with the right amount of planning before hand recruiting isn't that difficult in that window. I'm in the Central time zone. Maybe it is a LITTLE tougher in ET than in CT, but it really isn't that hard. I do all my planning in the day or 2 before recruiting starts, and then actually putting the actions in only takes about 5 minutes tops.
All that said, it would be great if WIS would do 2 things that help balance that first cycle out a bit for people: 1) make it a 24-hour cycle that runs at 8pm ET so you give people plenty of time to get opening cycle actions in; and 2) give us our recruiting cash as soon as recruiting ends and the new season begins so we can scout a lot sooner than 36 hours before recruiting starts. On #2, you would have to make it to where if you buy FSS you can't change schools in the offseason to avoid people job hoping just to have an advantage in recruiting (extra scouting cash). If you are worried about people honestly deciding to change jobs, but not being able to because they spent a little money on FSS early in the season, just give coaches their recruiting cash over night the night when the championship games are played, but warn us if we spend any of that we won't be able to change jobs. That extra nearly week of time for scouting would help A LOT.
