If there are no humans in Alaska, treat Alaska like an extension of your home state. Monopolize it. Check the world and see which states don't have many humans nearby, hopefully you can go after players there without much competition. (I was doing this for a while in South Dakota in Knight with the N Central and N Sun conferences relatively empty, but I think other humans remembered that SD exists, because people fight there now). If at all possible, avoid fights on lower 48 recruits, because you almost always have a disadvantage. Scout the hell out of internationals.
This is essentially what I've been doing at Alaska-Anchorage for the last few seasons in Knight. I've had some modest success (a Final Four and a Sweet Sixteen), but it's been really uneven (those two years were followed by a PIT). It was a lot easier to build a team than keep a team, because in building it, I could recruit players for $110 and not worry about the promised start because the team sucked anyways. Once I had a competitive team, I actually had to spend more money to get far-away recruits to consider me.
