    [CFBHC] How should my depth chart be formatted?

    Alternative labels list might be the thing I never knew I needed most So if I list a slot WR, will the WR3 essentially have the same role that a WR4 would have had a separate slot designation not been made?

    New Compensatory Pick Formula

    Is it the player's rating at the time he leaves you, or his rating after the next offseason's progressions?
  4. I'll have this forum up tomorrow hopefully, need to figure out some permission stuff for Jumbo.
  5. Bengals are looking for a head coach, previous NFLHC experience preferred.

  6. Added a missed player to my list, DE William Coates.
  7. Yesterday
  8. Thanks, Rome. Also, about Nose Tackle: If I run a 4-3, but I want to distinguish between my Nose and my Under tackle, can I use this designation?
  9. Can my feedback be that I want a new feedback mod that doesn't threaten to fire me? Jokes aside, I think this is a good development. Will help to consolidate feedback so Soluna isn't reading the same thing over and over and should help with some productive changes for the site.
  10. Good development
  11. In order to streamline the process of feedback on the site, we've decided to introduce a small committee that will take comments, feedback, and general ideas for both the sim and on community issues and present all of the most pertinent ones to Soluna in a more streamlined fashion. This functionality will mostly replace the current private feedback system, although this will remain enabled in order to allow for people to share ideas that are best shared with Soluna privately and not with the community. Soon, a new forum will be created called Committee Feedback (PRIVATE) that will function effectively in the same way as private feedback does now - only you and the members of the committee will be able to see it. If you wish to give feedback at a given time, you should just create a thread called "[your username]'s Committee Feedback" in this forum. This is where you should generally now share your feedback in regards to the sim, as stated above. The function of the committee will be to review all of the posts made in feedback, respond to each post in a timely manner giving feedback on the potential feasibility and implementation of any ideas and/or a response about addressing any comments made that raise pertinent issues. Once a month, the committee will prepare and give a general overview of the feedback given by the committee to myself and Soluna, hold a discussion on both ideas and comments on the community, and then make a public post summarizing any feedback and allowing for discussion in areas they feel the community at large should discuss. We're hoping that this will make communication between the admin side and the community side smoother and clearer. If joining this committee is something you'd be interested in, send me a PM and I'll ask you a few questions in regards to the potential role. It will be a small committee and won't require too much of a time commitment, but I'd prefer that if you wish to join you can commit to staying at least reasonably active in responding to people's posts and being able to participate in the summarizing aspect on a monthly basis. Anyone is welcome to join if they're interested, including conference commissioners - just message me and I'll give you further details. tl;dr: Unless you think it needs to be viewed only by Soluna, please use the new Committee Feedback (PRIVATE) forum to give comments, feedback, and ideas about the sim and community. If you want to join the committee, please read this whole post and not just the tl;dr.
  12. No, the Jack is usually used to denote the hybrid DE/OLB position that many modern 3-4s use. Tends to be the bigger OLBs/smaller DEs. Basically the pass rushing LB.
  13. I assume a Jack LB is kinda like a LB/S hybrid?

    Baltimore Ravens welcome NFLHC veteran as Scout

    sleuthofbears, Baltimore Herald: Why did you think it was a good idea to hire, in any capacity, someone associated with the shitshow that is the New England Patriots?

    Delaware Introduces Head Coach

    Maybe not currently, but I definitely feel we can contend. In a few years I believe we'll be able to play with anyone.

    [2021] Season in Review

    Great write up as always @npklemm , my Colts brother (or boss, however you want to look at it ). Very enjoyable season... shoutout to @Jieret for being my go to guy when I needed a helping hand, and for all the hard work you put in as commissioner. It really enhanced the entire experience. Also an honourable mention to @tsweezy for keeping me on my toes by bringing an end to our mid season win streak! You rocked it dude and your future is bright. Good luck next season to all of my MAC friends... Farewell, from Coach Kirby.

    1. Please list your email address and/or your reddit username at which you can be contacted. Leonangel12303@gmail.com or /u/GK12303 2. Before continuing, please thoroughly read the coaching course and feel free to ask questions. Confirm that you have read the coaching course by writing "Confirmed" below. Confirmed 3. What team do you want to coach? Western Michigan Broncos 4. Please select two backup teams (in descending order of preference) in case your first choice is unavailable. UConn Huskies Stay at UMass 5. In three or more sentences, tell us a little about yourself. How old are you, what do you do, where are you from, why would you be a good fit here, etc. 15 years old living in New York. HS Sophmore. I've always have enjoyed Football and I've been here in the past so I know what to expect. 6. This site can be as time consuming as you want it to be. Weekly duties can be completed in 30 minutes or less, however interacting with your fellow players throughout the week makes it more enjoyable for most people. Approximately, how much free time do you have during a typical week? 4-6 hours a day at least. 7. Losing games is an inevitable reality on this site, especially when accepting newer teams. Do you believe you can handle losing? Disappointment is expected, however we have had issues with people freaking out, and even leaving the site because of losing. I've coached Wyoming and LA Tech and now add on UMass. Safe to say I can handle it. 8. How did you find out about this site? If recommended by a friend, please post his/her username. Searching through Google about a year and a half ago and I found this website. Recently remembered about CFBHC and decided to give it another go.
  24. The 2021 is officially over and what a season it was! We had 8 teams go bowling, with a 7-1 Record! Let's take some time and review each team's season. First, we'll look at a couple Conference Notes. Records Against Other Conferences This only counts Regular Season: AAC: 1-1 ACC: 3-3 Big XII: 1-0 B1G: 1-3 C-USA: 6-1 Independent: 7-3 MWC: 1-6 PAC-12: 1-3 SEC: 2-2 Sun Belt: 3-0 Overall: 26-22 Final Rankings: Western Michigan finished 14th in the Final Poll Award Winners: Dick Butkus Award: ILB Devin Frazier, Akron All-Americans: ILB Devin Frazier, Akron Now, let's look at each team individually: Akron Zips Season Storyline: The Zips finished the season 9-5 and won the MAC East. They did lose to Western Michigan in the MAC Championship Game, but they came back and beat Boise State in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. The Zips were all over the place early. Losing to Hawai'i and then beating Kansas State the next week. They fell to 2-4 after a loss to Miami (FL). They then won 6 straight games to win the Division. Devin Frazier and Nathaniel Ruff lead this team the whole way. Frazier was an absolute Dude and finished with 75 Tackles, 7 TFL, 2 Sacks, 3 INTs, 5 PD. An absolutely great season for him. Their appearance in the MAC Championship game was their first in school history. Wins: Kansas State Ohio UNC Western Michigan Ball State Bowling Gren Buffalo Kent State Losses: Hawai'i Toledo Miami (OH) Miami (FL) Biggest Losses: RB Nathaniel Ruff LT Brendan Evans C Rocco Conroy DT Marlon Bailey Ball State Cardinals Season Storyline: The Cardinals entered the season having had 3 consecutive 1-11 seasons. Hopes were high with the hiring of new Head Coach npklemm. The Cardinals did break their 1-11 streak in Week 5 with a win over UAB. After a win the next week over Central Michigan, the Cardinals were above .500 for the first time since 2016. 4 straight defeats left the Cards on the verge of not being eligible for Bowl Season. A surprise win over Miami (OH) gave them hopes of Bowling. But a trip to Notre Dame ended poorly and the Cards suffered their 7th loss. However, in the last week of the season, the Cards hosted Northern Illinois in the Bronze Stalk Trophy. Ball State walked away with a win, their first in the series to finish 5-7. Wins: Buffalo UAB Central Michigan Miami (OH) Northern Illinois Losses: Toledo Navy Eastern Michigan Georgia Western Michigan Akron Notre Dame Biggest Losses: QB Elias Carter RB Austin Laws LT Aiden Hammer DT Isamaeli Afamasaga DT Rashaad Malcolm ILB Darren Boykin Bowling Green Falcons Season Storyline: The Falcons entered the season with lots of question marks. Having lost their best defensive player and an unstable coaching situation. Their coaching stability was fixed with hiring of Kirby. The Falcons finished the regular season 7-5 and beat South Alabama in the Camellia Bowl to finish 8-5. They started off 0-2 after losses to Miami (OH) and IU, and then won 5 straight games. A loss to Eastern Michigan put them at 5-3. They then went 3-2 over the last 5 games. Wins: Stanford UMASS New Mexico State Ohio Buffalo Kent State Northern Illinois Losses: Miami (OH) Indiana Eastern Michigan Akron Toledo Biggest Losses: QB Eddie Connelly LG Maximillian Pope DE Malachi McKnight ILB Abdoul Hurt Buffalo Bulls Season Storyline: The Bulls came into the season with a potential Heisman candidate in Blair Holcomb. Although he played very well, the team didn't and his Heisman hopes were crushed early on. They finished 4-8 on the season. They were at .500 with a win over Liberty, but went 2-6 over the remainder of the season. They just didn't have the talent surrounding Blair Holcomb to compete. Long time coach sodapopseth essentially disappeared on the team. The Bulls did hire coach Wooden out of retirement. But the coaching instability hurt the team as well. Wins: Arkansas State Liberty Miami (OH) Kent State Losses: Louisville Ball State Western Michigan Bowling Green Northern Illinois Ohio BYU Akron Biggest Losses: QB Blair Holcomb C Mekhi Haskins DT Joel Raji SS Thomas Gordon Central Michigan Chippewas Season Storyline: The Chips entered the season with a lot of promise. Starting a freshman at QB and WR in Byron Suggs and Joseph Aikman. The question mark on offense was if Makai Carr would give Suggs enough help for the offense to soar. Turns out Suggs didn't need much help as he lead the Chips to a 7-5 regular season record and win over FIU in he Boca Rotan Bowl. Following their loss to Ball State, they were 2-3. They finished the regular season 5-2 as Suggs and Aikman got more comfortable in their roles and lead the Chips Offense to new heights. Coach johnkirk has a really good pair of young skill players to build around for the next couple of seasons. Wins: Southern Miss Northern Illinois NC State Kent State Miami (OH) Toledo Liberty Losses: Ohio UTSA Ball State Eastern Michigan Western Michigan Biggest Losses: RB Makai Carr LT Victor Reaves ILB Dwayne Boone FS Troy Doss K James Bragg Eastern Michigan Season Storyline: The Eagles lost their prior coach, Jammz, to the Indiana Hoosiers and entered 2021 with question marks at the position. Because of that, they started 0-5. They then hired tsweezy and fired off 7 straight wins to finish 7-5. Their winning streak started in Week 8 in Muncie against the Ball State Cardinals. After the regular season, they entered Bowl Season on fire but fell against Texas Tech in the Texas Bowl to finish 7-6. Wins: Ball State Georgia State Bowling Green Northern Illinois Old Dominion Central Michigan Miami (OH) Losses: Illinois Ohio Virginia Toledo Western Michigan Biggest Losses: WR Daniel Lentz C Brian Atkins DE Kyle Whiten OLB Brayden Winters K Simon Hand Kent State Golden Flashes Season Storyline: Kent State came into the season with the expectations to be the worst team in the conference. And they did not disappoint. They started the season with Tazer as their coach, but a Mid-Season transfer left the Flashes coachless and they finished that way. They ended the season at 1-11. Everything that could go wrong, went wrong. Turnovers, injuries, just general lack of talent. Wins: Ohio Losses: Boise State San Diego State Miami (OH) Illinois Northern Illinois Western Michigan Central Michigan Oregon Bowling Green Buffalo Akron Biggest Losses: QB John Garland LT Eli Hanna RT Alex Schultz DE Jacob Dennison P Micah Kirkland Miami Redhawks Season Storyline: The Pre-Season MAC East favorites didn't quite live up to expectations. Especially once coach caesari left. They did hire coach King Benny, but that didn't help them as well as they would have liked. After a 4-1 start, they finished the regular season 2-5. They did beat Wyoming in the Heart of Dallas Bowl to finish 7-6. Zak Cera, Kenneth Harrison, and Casey Swann did their thing, but it wasn't always enough to win their games. Wins: Cincinnati Bowling Green Kent State Akron Troy New Mexico State Losses: Air Force Buffalo Central Michigan Ball State Eastern Michigan Ohio Biggest Losses: WR Kenneth Harrison LG Kulani Isara DE Donte Pennel OLB Jadon Talbert ILB Jayden Kessler FS Nicholas Mingo SS Ian Huntly K Zachary Crowell Northern Illinois Huskies Season Storyline: The Huskies lacked talent at most positions and 2021 was looked at as a rebuilding season. And that turned out to be true as they finished 3-9 and last in the Division. They had losing streaks of 3 and 5 on the season. And for the first time in school history, they lost the Bronze Stalk trophy to the Ball State Cardinals. They did have a winning streak during the season with wins over Liberty and Buffalo in Weeks 8 and 10. Wins: Kent State Liberty Buffalo Losses: Central Michigan Colorado State Western Michigan Arizona State BYU Eastern Michigan Bowling Green Toledo Ball State Biggest Losses: RB Julian Holcomb LT Lorenzo Bales DT Thierno Thomas ILB Harrison Braswell SS Miles Grady Ohio Bobcats Season Storyline: Ohio had won the MAC East in both 2019 and 2020 and came into 2021 trying to win their 3rd straight. But, they lost their coach Beeznik before the season started. They hired Chad_Michael, who then left Mid-Season and then they brought in AD3378 who finished the season through. The Bobcats started freshman Austin Lowe at QB and he played like a freshman at times, but in general he was pretty good. Ohio won their first 3 games, then lost their next 3 and then had trouble to win back to back games. A win, then a loss, then a win, then a loss, then finished with 2 wins to end the regular season 7-5. They won the Bahamas Bowl over Marshall to finish 8-5. Wins: Old Dominion Eastern Michigan Central Michigan Middle Tennessee State Buffalo Army Miami (OH) Losses: Akron Hawai'i Bowling Green Toledo Kent State Biggest Losses: WR Dwayne Simpson C Jake Jennings RT Damien Arroyo DE Chase Woodson OLB Myles Lindsay ILB Calvin Blue OLB Donovan Pendleton Toledo Rockets Season Storyline: #Toledo2021 got off to a great start with 3 straight wins. A loss to Florida put a hitch in their plans, but they still had a chance to make the playoffs. But further losses to Central Michigan and Western Michigan crushed any hopes they had. Coach deathcpo still managed to have a good season finishing 9-3 and then beating Louisiana Lafayette in the Alabama Bowl to finish 10-3. This Rockets team was very talented and 9-3 is definitely a disappointing season. Wins: Ball State Utah State Akron Eastern Michigan Vanderbilt FIU Ohio Northern Illinois Bowling Green Losses: Florida Central Michigan Western Michigan Biggest Losses: QB Michael Thompson WR Justin Evans RG John Aldridge CB Levern White CB Adam Haywood Western Michigan Broncos Season Storyline: The Broncos came in with the goal to end #Toledo2021 and make the playoffs again. They accomplished one of those goals by defeating Toledo to win the MAC West, but were unable to make the playoffs. They defeated Akron in the MAC Championship Game to win their 2nd consecutive MAC Championship and tie Northern Illinois for most Championships. They went 10-2 in the regular season, beat Akron in the MAC Championship, and beat SMU in the Frisco Bowl to finish 12-2. Coach Jieret had another fantastic season, but has since left Kalamazoo to head to Washington. Wins: Duke Michigan State Northern Illinois Buffalo Eastern Michigan Kent State Ball State Toledo Arkansas Central Michigan Losses: Akron Washington Biggest Losses: TE Carlos Vargas LT Marc Allen OLB Walter McGregor CB Jaylin McQueen CB Emmanuel Faulk FS Donavan Jackson
