The other thing is.. If you have a question, just ask one of the guys you see on here. Sitemail is generally the best... I don't answer too many questions on the boards anymore because many of them are Engine - Related, and tbh, I can't help as much with this new one. Working on that, but I don't have all of the answers. Brad (Bhouska) Reid (Slid64er) and a handful of other coaches are generally always willing to help. But recruiting wise - if you have questions about how to do it, don't be afraid to ask one of the guys you see having success doing it.
The reason sitemail is best, is because if you ask the question on this board... and bhouska answers it... He's just giving all your competition free pointers too... Not that he minds... because competition is generally welcome once you know what you are doing.. but if you have questions and want to understand (without giving pointers out to everyone else) find somebody and ask the questions.
I was fortunate a long, long time ago to be in a google group that consisted of some of the top coaches in this game, and others that would become the top coaches in the game. We bounced ideas off each other daily... tried different things, shared practice plans and formulas, tested growth....
If you want to win in this game.. You have to put the effort in to understand how it works. Learning from the guys who know what they are talking about just speeds up the process.
