Nothing to see here. Just continue what you were doing.
Look. I am not going into detail, but here is my basic philosophy. I can not outrecruit the elites and am in area of heavy competition. Therefore, I have to find a niche, recruit players to play that my system. This often means looking at players that other teams would never recruit because they have talents that meet my formation and aggressiveness settings strategy. If I was to adopt a traditional gameplan and then recruit against Notre Dame, Michigan, Nebraska, Tennessee, Ohio State, and Penn State for players, I would lose every time.
When they change the engine, I will find another niche and do the same thing.
