This just happened to me. A guy jumped in on my top recruit the day before signing day. I wasnt mad but whats the best way to handle it when it happens. At that point I didnt have much budget left to get in a battle. How do you guys prevent it.
If you have a couplemof guys who you really want or need, then you either need to save some money to protect them later in the game or spend a little extra even when he is green to keep someone from even being able to get on him.
As for the term sniping, I hate that term. It insinuates that someone is deliberately going after someone just for fun. As for me I start with a list of potential guys and sometimes get behind right from the start. I might come back to those guys later or I might go find other recriuts tomgo after. For me I will go after anyone that I need that I think I can actually sign. I do not care who may already be on them. Its never personal and I never target another coach. And I do not care if it is a conference mate or not. Might even be more advantageous if you win a recruit over a conference mate.
I do absolutely despise the whining that comes from some coaches who feel like a recruit is theirs, before they are actually signed.
