    With free agency fairly well wrapped up, the Chargers have already had a successful offseason. The team had a number of big question marks entering the offseason, and has addressed several of them. Just a few short weeks ago, the team had no quarterback under contract (other than career backup Elijah Moffett), did not have anyone at the center position who had ever snapped a ball in the pros, and had dismissed their starting left tackle, with no succession plan in place. Say what you will about Matty Swift, but he did just set career highs in every passing category, while throwing for the 3rd-most yards, 4th-most completions, and 8th-most touchdowns in the league. While he did throw 17 interceptions in 2022, his interception rate was lower than guys like Ryan Clark, Taylor Heiden, Alex Leshoure, Norris Brooksheer, and Tanner Bowman. The Chargers were able to extend him for three seasons, in a very cap-friendly deal, that allows them to continue to add pieces around him, and hopefully finally give him the protection and running game that every quarterback deserves. Matty will either excel and his contract will look like a bargain, or he'll struggle and the team will be looking for his replacement sooner rather than later. His deal does allow the team to draft a successor and cut Swift loose in the near future. The other key retention that the Chargers had was the transition tagging of Center, Martin Terry. While not a Pro Bowler, a team can't build a strong line without at least a serviceable center. Terry is a top-half of the league center, and bringing him back was a must for the team. Sure, they would have preferred to ink an extension with him, but it was vital to at least bring him back for 2023. Perhaps if the team turns things around a bit, he'll be more inclined to stick around. Speaking of the center position, the Chargers aggressively went out and added a player that has starting experience, that could possibly replace Terry should the veteran decide to walk away, or get hurt this season. Mendy Morrow is a young player with potential that the team identified as someone they had to have. GM Pumph has this to say on the addition of Morrow: "Mendy's a guy who could step in if needed, and gives us a little insurance in case Martin decides to go elsewhere. Having depth at center is important in this league, and to be honest, it might be the hardest position in the league to fill right now, so getting a player like Mendy for just two late picks was a no-brainer for me". The biggest move the Chargers made this offseason was a trade for Broncos' tackle, Mario Hill. The team gave up a 4th round pick this season, and their 3rd next season to acquire the stalwart left tackle. Said Pumph of the Hill trade: "Coming into this offseason, beefing up the offensive line was something we felt we had to continue to do. We have been trying to focus on that in recent drafts by taking guys like Noah Barney in the first last year, and Anthony Krause and Justin Way in the high second round the last two years. But this trade should immediately make a big impact on our pass protection and ability to run the football. This trade allows us to look elsewhere with our draft capital, while really strengthening what has been the team's biggest weakness." The Chargers had a quiet free agency signing period, completing just one deal, but not for a lack of trying. The Bolts were actively pursuing the top Guard of the free agency class, Kevin Levy, but bowed out when the price tag became too cumbersome. The team did ink free agent wide receiver, Darryl McGlockton, formerly of the Las Vegas Raiders, who caught 50 passes in 2022. McGlockton is seen as a depth piece for the team, who could compete for the number four or five wide receiver position. In addition to the Morrow and Hill trades, the Chargers have been active in various other trade talks. The team sent linebacker Bryan Jones to the Colts for a 2024 6th round pick and safety Steven Elliott to the Rams for another 2024 6th rounder. However, it is the trades that have not been finalized that have kept the Chargers in the news. The team has been fielding offers on future Hall of Famer, Scott Howard, and seems intent on moving him. "Scott has meant so much to this franchise", remarked Pumph, "but as good as he has been, and continues to be, I have that much confidence that our number two guy [Damian Mason] can fill that role sufficiently, and allow us to address some other needs". He followed up by saying, "I know our fans, and heck, even our coaching staff won't be happy if we lose Scott, but we have some other holes to fill, and I firmly believe that tight end will still be a position of strength for us, even if we lost Scott." The team is rumored to have multiple suitors for Howard, but is patiently waiting for those teams to assess their offseason plans. Pumph closed the Howard discussion with, "The good thing is, we don't have to do a thing. While I do want to try to fill some other holes, keeping Scott Howard in a Chargers' jersey is not a bad thing at the end of the day". The Chargers have also looked at trading the likes of defensive tackle Andrew Pearson, cornerback Kevin Potts, fullback John Bills, offensive tackle Charlie Ellis, linebacker Paul Floyd, safety Robert Shipp, and punter Nick Baldwin, among others. The team reported that some of those players have been involved in talks, while moving some of the others may just be wishful thinking. Looking ahead to the draft, the Chargers currently hold the #2 overall selection, a pick that they seem content to keep, but would not turn down the chance to talk about moving down. "This draft board sets up really well for us", remarked Pumph, "unlike years past, we could pick #2 or #10, and I feel that almost no matter what anyone else took in front of us, could be happy with whoever is sitting there when we pick. Our needs and the top players available just seems to mesh pretty well. We'll get one heck of a football player at #2, but we'd also be very happy to move down and collect some other assets and take whoever falls to us. Everything will just depend on what offers might be out there". Despite Swift's signing, the team seems destined to look at a quarterback in this draft, with several quality signal-callers available. The team also has needs at defensive end, running back, offensive line, and linebacker, and could also look to improve their defensive backfield. With the draft board the way that it is, the Chargers are certain to be able to fill a need almost no matter where they pick. If the team remains at #2, the most-likely selections would be Auburn quarterback, Marcus Black, Rice quarterback, Eric McLean, Alabama defensive end, Deontre Graham, or Texas Tech Running Back, Solomon McLaughlin. The Chargers have retained six selections in the upcoming draft thus far. The team holds their picks near the top of Rounds one through three, the Cardinals and Patriots' picks near the top of the fifth round, and the Chargers' own seventh round pick. With 57 players currently under contract, the team has announced that they are mostly looking for future picks, but could easily cut a few players or move some players to the practice squad if they were to add additional picks in the upcoming draft. Los Angeles is hoping to improve on their 2022 record of 3-13. It feels like this team is close to turning a corner, but they need to continue to stock the roster with quality young players, and continue to build around their scheme. Bringing Matty Swift back for another trial will help with the cohesion on the offensive side of the ball, but the team still had the 32nd-ranked scoring defense, and was 31st on 3rd down, 31st in yards allowed, 30th in sacks, and tied for next-to-last in interceptions. Some say that a better offense will take pressure off of the defense. The team still has their work cut out on both sides of the ball if they are going to turn this team into a winner, but some of the foundation pieces have been laid, and the team will look to continue adding to that.

    CFBHC v1.6d

    CFBHC v1.6d May 22nd, 2019 Pre-Release v1.6.3.26 Notes: Thanks to all those who submitted feedback to Jumbo's committee and thanks especially to Jumbo for helping me process some of the information. As usual thanks to all those I asked to test various parts of this. Thanks to the users who gave me the idea for this. General Info / Idea Requested feature suggested by a few users in the past. Builds on the coaching skills and differentiation of conferences ideas. Conferences are going to be brought more to the forefront with a dedicated area of the website catered to each conference where each can stand out as unique and show off why that conference is the best. CFBHC Added Conference Identity Each offseason conference commissioners will conduct a "conference identity" draft to determine the bonuses that conference will receive for the next season. Selected bonuses may also bestow future benefits upon the conference. The 10 conferences + Independents (functionally an 11th conference) will be seeded in a two round draft by the number of ranked teams (not receiving votes) they have in the final poll of the previous season. Tiebreaker for the ranking is the highest ranked team from each conference. If conferences are tied with no ranked teams then the order will be decided by random draw. Only for this second case the order will be inverted in the second round. During the Identity draft each conference commissioner may select an available identity (only one of each available - i.e. can be blocked for other conferences) or skip their pick to choose one of the possible alternate identities (infinite of each available - i.e. cannot be blocked for other conferences) The FCS commissioner will be allowed to choose one from 5 randomly selected ones given to them or pick one of the alternates. Going forward the FCS choices will be a random five of the top ten picks of the previous year) It is up to commissioners whether they want to select the pick themselves, delegate it, or have it up for a vote. Elect good commissioners. Drafting a non-alternate Identity also gives the conference 50 media points (MP). MP will be spent on recruiting camps, high school scouting info, and more to come in the future. Identities +10% QB Skill for the Year (+2.5% QB Skill Permanently) +10% RB/FB Skill for the Year (+2.5% RB/FB Skill Permanently) +10% WR/TE Skill for the Year (+2.5% WR/TE Skill Permanently) +10% OT/OG/C Skill for the Year (+2.5% OT/OG/C Skill Permanently) +10% DE/DT Skill for the Year (+2.5% DE/DT Skill Permanently) +10% ILB/OLB Skill for the Year (+2.5% ILB/OLB Skill Permanently) +10% CB/FS/SS Skill for the Year (+2.5% CB/FS/SS Skill Permanently) +10% K/P/LS/KR/PR Skill for the Year (+2.5% K/P/LS/KR/PR Skill Permanently) -20% Scheme Change Penalty for the Year (-5% Scheme Change Penalty Permanently) -20% Weather Penalty for the Year (-5% Weather Penalty Permanently) +10% Homefield Advantage for the Year (+2.5% Homefield Advantage Permanently) +2 Recruiting Points for every conference school (No Permanent Advantage) Alternate Identities +5% QB Skill for the Year +1% QB Skill Permanently +5% RB/FB Skill for the Year +1% RB/FB Skill Permanently +5% WR/TE Skill for the Year +1% WR/TE Skill Permanently +5% OT/OG/C Skill for the Year +1% OT/OG/C Skill Permanently +5% DE/DT Skill for the Year +1% DE/DT Skill Permanently +5% ILB/OLB Skill for the Year +1% CB/FS/SS Skill Permanently +5% CB/FS/SS Skill for the Year +1% K/P/LS/KR/PR Skill Permanently +5% K/P/LS/KR/PR Skill for the Year +1% Homefield Advantage Permanently +1 Recruiting Point for every conference school

    [2023] Team and Coach Prestige

    Here is the worksheet. Some reminders: 1. Coaches are graded on a bell curve, teams are graded linearly. Exactly a quarter of all coaches in the database are 3 stars, but just under 10% of teams are. 2. There are expectations based on your prestige for wins and recruiting rank. This is to simulate expectations. This also reduces the prestige of inactive coaches. 3. @Jieret did most of the work. If anything stands out are particularly wrong, @ me. I would also like to congratulate the schools and coaches who have made it to the 5 star penthouse. Edit: FCS schools are treated as a half star lesser than what their prestige would actually be, but FCS coaches will be treated like everyone else. The mobility of coaches and having to match similar standards as FBS coaches would be held too made docking them seem unfair and unfun.

    Idol As of last year all players have hard coded idols that will guide their development paths via the most recent stats from the "idol" in NFLHC. Players with an idol will develop to adjust their game similar to the perceived gameplay of their idol over time. Idols do not have to be the same scheme but will help develop game knowledge and game instinct stuff directly from the idol's background. Preferred Offense This is the offense the player either ran in high school or is most familiar with. Familiarity can be built in any offense and prior to this year all players came in with 0% familiarity in specific offenses. As of 2023 all players get 20-30% (at random) for their preferred offense to start with. The intention here is to help them transition to college from high school. Game Tape Computer weighted evaluation (with randomized error) that evaluates their skill from their high school games. Scouting Computer weighted evaluation (with randomized error) that evaluates their future potential ASSSUMING NO CHANGES to their development in the future. Does not count future impacts from coaching, idols, schemes, etc. PFF Reliability Projection How confident the computer feels in their future capability. (Accuracy) NFL Computer Projection How confident the computer feels in its skill evaluation. (Precision)

    To most of the world, it's mock draft season. While the paper that's three sheets to the Windy City may get in on that action at some point, our analytics department (which we've upgraded to two squirrels each with their own typewriter) has been hard at work projecting the college football landscape next fall. Last month, we published our 2023 Outlook Ratings to predict which teams are on the rise and which teams are set to fall heading into the second decade of CFBHC football. Today, however, is the day that we rank everybody in the country from bottom to top. As always, this formula relies on each team's past season's performance (measured by adjusted margin of victory), the last five years' worth of recruiting rankings, as well as a formula for the level of returning production adjusted by position. Last year's rankings included each team's projected record; we won't be able to project that for this year until the full schedule is out. This edition of the preview, however, will seek to rank every division, conference, FCS team, and FBS team in the country. Some teams have links to relevant supplementary material. I.

    [2023] Depth Chart Party #1

    What we're here to do is to all take one roster (provided by a willing user) to have people openly post depth charts so we can compare and contrast different approaches. This should be a benefit for both the coach we're discussing but also the coaches who participate. I feel like taking a moment to look at a different team and think about how you'd coach under those circumstances can provide useful insight into your approach for your own team. This time, @smckenz3 has offered his team up to be dissected.

    KC and Cleveland issues

    WR Lindsey Thomas 5-11 163 2 Arizona [Speed] [-1] 77 was on KC's roster the entire 2022 season but was actually on the Packers. Unclear whether he played for them (was inactive on latest depth chart), but he was a FA the previous season. In addition, they removed player colors during re-signings. (minor issue) KC will lose their 4th round pick in 2023 as well as a 3 million cap penalty. @Nmize0 Browns mistakenly listed a player that was not a FA in their released players during re-signing. The player went to FA and was signed by Atlanta before the error was found out. They then released the player to waivers and claimed by the Colts. Cleveland's 2023 7th round pick will be forfeit. @brightfalls @Kirby Because Atlanta kind of got screwed in the above issue, I am awarding them a compensatory 5th round pick. It will be the final comp pick in the 5th round. @acewulf @Rocketcan @Quasar

    (Hattiesburg, MS) The Southern Miss Golden Eagles have officially released their 2023 football schedule, which includes multiple exciting out of conference games. In the first game of the season, the Eagles will travel to Los Angeles to face coach @Jumbo and the 2022 Semifinalist Trojans of USC. Fans will also be excited that in-state rival Ole Miss, led by coach @HughFreeze$$, will be coming to The Rock in week 9 for the first time in program history. Coach Ricky Campbell and the Eagles will travel to face Louisiana Monroe in week 5. This will be the third straight meeting in the series. Coach @jared2001usa and Ricky Campbell have developed a friendly rivalry over this time, and the game in 2022 gave the Eagles quite a scare. The out of conference schedule wraps up with the Minutemen of UMass coming to Hattiesburg in week 3. Coach Campbell spoke briefly with the press today discussing the newly released schedule. “We’re really excited to expand out and take on teams that have had substantial recent success, like USC. If we want to be respected as one of the top G5 teams, we must travel and compete in these kinds of games. Also, I also think our fanbase and college football in general wants to see more games with in-state rivals playing, so I will be looking forward to facing Ole Miss this season as well.” The Eagles have high expectations going into 2023. They return 20 out of 22 starters from 2022, including senior QB Alexander Cassidy and the National TE of the Year award Winner, Jeremiah Kendrick. Coach Campbell was also busy on the recruiting trail last season, bringing in the #65 recruiting class in the country. The Chicago Tribune recently published a pre-season ranking that had the Eagles just outside the top 25 at #35. 2023 Football Schedule Week 1 – at USC* Week 2 - BYE Week 3 - vs UMass* Week 4 – @ UTEP Week 5 - @ Louisiana Monroe* Week 6 - BYE Week 7 - vs UTSA Week 8 - @ North Texas Week 9 – vs Ole Miss* Week 10 – vs La Tech Week 11 - @ UAB Week 12 - BYE Week 13 - @ WKU Week 14 – vs FAU Week 15 - vs Rice Week 16 - BYE

    [2023] Auburn Tigers Draft Class Review

    Coach Rome brings you his view on his eligible players. With the future of Pro Days and/or Pro Day style data uncertain, I wanted to provide franchises with some personal takes on how my eligible players played this year. My goal is to provide a public record of tactical information on Auburn players to answer as many questions that front offices may have about my players as I can. I will attempt to highlight what I believe their strengths and weaknesses are, as they pertained to the system I ran this year. Scheme: Pro Style/4-3 QB Marcus Black 6-6 225 R Auburn [Hybrid] [+2] 82 Strengths: Mobility, Decision Making/Mentality Weaknesses: Arm Strength Playoff Performance: 72 of 117 (61.5%), 846 Yards (7.2 YPA), 6 TDs, 0 INTs, 11 Carries, 87 Yards, 3 TDs, 1 Sacked Fumble Rome's Draft Grade: Top 10 Marcus Black was not the most accurate player in the playoffs. His WRs would drop 4 passes during those 3 games and he would have pass defended. We were only overmatched in the air game by TCU, but I think the overall quality of competition we faced in the playoffs should provide some excuse to his lower accuracy. I feel like he is good enough on completing passes to make in the NFLHC. I have major question marks about his Arm Strength, but the combination of Pro Style scheme and my game-to-game management meant it wasn't test much through the season. The one game I feel I tested it out the most was also his most disappointing, so a vertical offense likely will not suit him. Marcus Black was touched just once throughout the playoffs and did not only didn't throw an interception, he only had one pass defended. I think both of those facts speaks well to what I feel puts Marcus Black on the path to pro greatness. Black's ability to extend plays with his feet, even if he doesn't always scramble, buys any receiver corps more time to get open. And when Black does run, he proves to be quite lethal, racking up 3 rushing TDs (9 all season) in a system that doesn't call that many QB runs. Marcus Black's also proven himself to be a winner, grabbing 7 wins by 7 or fewer points, and providing 2 4th quarter comeback (including his only close playoff game and conference title victory). He also grabbed 4 overtime wins this season (again including his first playoff game and conference title game). This is a young man who can will teams to victory and, while his introductory years may be rocky, has the tools and mentality to be a winner in the pros as well. WR Jariel Martinez 6-0 199 R Auburn [Target] [0] 76 Strengths: Route Running Weaknesses: Separation Ability, Hands Playoff Performance: 11 Catches for 144 Yards (13 YPC), 2 TDs, 1 Drop Rome's Draft Grade: Day 3 Jariel Martinez is an early declaration player. This is a young man who was likely pushed out, not one that believes he is actually ready. Our #1 WR to start the season, Jariel was quickly moved to #2 to let star WR Kelvin Andrade shine. Despite being the best WR by skill and the only target of the top 3 players, he only had the 3rd most receptions all year--and managed to lead in drops. Our #4 WR was only 5 receptions behind him. Jariel did managed a strong YPC throughout the season (15.68), which I believe attests to his route running ability. If it was his separation/yards after the catch ability, I suspect that Martinez would not have struggled to get catches--an open WR gets the ball. But his ability to run the called play and be where he is suppose to be is still useful. At the end of the day, his inability to surpass a 1/5 Speed slot WR in the stats (Less catches & yards, same TDs) spells doom for his pro prospects. There are plenty of lower rated WRs that deserve to go before this young man. Maybe he can learn from a good pro WR or maybe he just was not compatible with Black, but I do not hold my breath. OT Kendall Gresham 6-5 275 R Auburn [Run Blocking] [0] 79 OG Charlie Cooper 6-7 282 R Auburn [Pass Blocking] [0] 82 OG Kieran Moser 6-2 278 R Auburn [Run Blocking] [-1] 76 Performance: 4.8 OL AVG Playoffs; 5.49 OL AVG All Season Rome's Draft Grades: OG Charlie Cooper = Top 10; OT Kendall Gresham = Late 2nd/Early 3rd; OG Kieran Moser = Day 3 I'm grouping my OL together because it's hard for me to say a whole lot uniquely about these players from the information we have. I have high, high hopes for Charlie Cooper. He's a big hoss with good mobility against the pass rush. He won't go as high as I think he should, but I think Cooper is one of the best players in this draft. Gresham and Moser feel more like "what you see is what you get". It's important to know Gresham played RT despite being a higher skill than our LT, so he's definitely got experience where most Pro Teams will likely slot him. DT Jordy Magana 6-0 304 R Auburn [2-Gap] [+2/C] 68 Strengths: Space Eating Weaknesses: Pass Rush Season Performance: None Rome's Draft Grade: Undrafted To Jordy's defense, he was DT #2 in a 4-3, but he did not manage to make a single impact all season for me. Players usually had to force a turnover or grab a sack to make our sheets, so it was clear he was not generating a lot of pass rush compared to the rest of my front seven. My entire DL was playing out of scheme this year, so I feel Jordy's growth was stunted in favor of me putting the best players on the field. While he may prove to be a fine enough practice squad player, do not draft him. CB Miles Keys 6-0 194 R Auburn [Man Coverage] [0] 71 Strengths: Physicality, Instincts Weaknesses: Speed Season Performance: 5 INTs, 3 PDs Rome's Draft Grade: Late Day 3 Keys was our #2 CB in a defense that relied on their corners to manage their WRs. Keys did not manage to make a stat sheet during the playoffs, so his stats are a little better than they seem at first glance. He lead our defense in interceptions, showing that he was capable of baiting quarterbacks against a team's 2nd best WR. I don't think he's going to be that good in the pros as we tended to get absolutely shredded by teams with multiple great WRs (MSST, Texas A&M). He's a boom or bust corner and one of the worst rated ones on the board. A player you draft just to fill roster depth at CB for preseason.

    As someone who certainly doesn't have the permission to speak for the entire ACC; I'd like to speak for the conference. We would like the ranking to be based on level of annual under achievement of ACC teams relative to the pre season polls.

    Ravens anounce new GM hire

    This is hopefully the last press conference we have to do in awhile. After some talks, the Ravens organization and @AzulCaballero have come to an agreement that will have him join as our new General Manager. Azul has plenty of experience GM'ing and the front office in general, and I look forward to working with him to set this team back on the right track.

    EUGENE, OR--University of Oregon Head Coach Bingo415 announced the full football schedule for the 2023 season today, noting specifically the inclusion of three P5 opponents based in the Southeast for upcoming out-of-conference games. "We're thrilled to announce another difficult OOC slate, one that will battle-harden this squad for the rigors of PAC-12 football," cliched Coach Bingo. Oregon's out of conference schedule in 2022 raise eyebrows for the depth and breadth of the competition, through which Oregon went 2-1. Wins over Western Michigan (in Kalamazoo) and South Carolina (in Eugene) preceded a flat effort against upstart Texas A&M, led by Nathan Singletary and his cadre of excellent pass catchers. That schedule gave Oregon a solid schedule bonus for recruiting, a figure that will likely be met by the 2023 slate. The Ducks open 2023 with a Week 1 trip to neutral site Mile High Stadium in Denver. CO to take on defending national champions Auburn Tigers. While Marcus Black is gone to the NFLHC, the returners for Coach @Rome's Tigers appear top-shelf in all three aspects of the game. Sophomore defensive end Myles Wallace will provide plenty of heat on whichever Oregon QB wins the job in Spring Ball, and RB Sean Meade will put pressure on the stellar Oregon linebacking unit. After a bye to heal all wounds, Oregon fulfills the home-and-home schedule with South Carolina, traveling to Columbia in Week 3. Milo Condon has moved on, but the Gamecocks still have an SEC caliber defense. Pivotal in the win last year in Eugene, Oregon's OLine simply overpowered the 'Cocks at times, a feat the Duck blockers will look to repeat in 2023. Thanks to Coach @Hagan for a great couple years of games! After traveling to face the revamped Cal Bears in Strawberry Canyon in Week 4, Oregon continues the road journey, this time to Morgantown, WV for a date with Coach @smckenz3's Mountaineers of WVU. The Week 5 tussle will feature two teams in a rebuilding mode, hoping that key youngsters will have 'come of age' at this point in the season. Thankfully, a second bye will help the Ducks regroup for the bulk of the PAC-12 season, staring with a visit from the rebuilding Stanford Cardinal in Week 6, before Oregon tries to avenge one of two PAC-12 losses from a season ago in Boulder, CO against Coach @paperllamasunited's Colorado Buffaloes in Week 7. The meat of the Conference schedule arrives in weeks 9-11, with the USC Trojans and Arizona State Sun Devils coming to Eugene, followed by a treacherous trip to The Palouse to face and angry and motivated Washington State squad. A timely Bye hits in Week 12, followed by a trip to Arizona before finishing with the two most important Rivalry games on the schedule: home against Coach @Jieret's hated Washington Huskies--who, by this point in the season, will likely be reeling from either a career-ending injury to quarterback Jake Davis or the suspension of star receiver D.D. Dyson for taking money from an agent--followed by the Civil War against Oregon Agricultural College in Corvallis. The yearly "misses" on the Conference calendar in 2023 are the Utah Utes--Coach @Kirby has GOT to be excited about freshman QB Finn Leonard--and QB Aaron Harden and the UCLA Bruins. Oregon's secondary is tailor-made to defend these two daunting QBs, so these particular misses hurt the Ducks' chances slightly. Overall, the coaching staff is excited about the upcoming season. "We think we have a PAC-12 Conference title team here this year, though we need a few newcomers--(QB Josh) Allman and (WR Benjamin) Solomon in particular--to step up in a big way. We think we might be looking at 10-2, depending on how ready we are against Auburn, and how quickly the new guys at WVU are up to speed," said Coach Bingo. The coach is available for questions. Go Ducks!

    Photo from 2023 Spring Game - Berkeley, CA California Golden Bears 2022 Record: 4-8 (2-7 Pac-12) Chicago Tribune Preseason Rank: 62 WEEK 2 - @ KANSAS STATE 2022 Record: 2-10 (0-9 Big XII) Chicago Tribune Preseason Rank: 107 The Golden Bears kickoff their season against Kansas State as both teams aim to make a statement against another Power 5 opponent early on in the season. There's a lot of question marks that need to be answered for Cal, and that will have to happen against an interesting Kansas State ball team bouncing back from a rebuilding season. California has a boat load of talent returning on the offensive ball this season and will be looking to rebrand it's offensive image from last season. Wildcats Head Coach @Swipet has agreed to a home and home series with the Golden Bears, so whoever wins this one will hold onto bragging rights heading into 2024. WEEK 3 - HOUSTON 2022 Record: 3-9 (2-6 American) Chicago Tribune Preseason Rank: 108 This is an exciting matchup for Head Coach noodlz2 as his team welcomes the program he joined the Golden Bears from. In 2020, Head Coach noodlz2's first season on the site and at Houston, he led the Cougars to the Birmingham Bowl where they lost in a 9-6 defensive matchup against Ole Miss. The difference between 2020 and 2023 is that noodlz2 has an experienced offense predicated on speed. Houston and Head Coach @Curby4 is excited as well for this game because it's now his first full season in control of a Houston team that went through a rough rebuilding year, which could be contributed to noodlz2's midseason departure last season. Hopefully the Golden Bears can find their identity after weeks 2 and 3, and enter conference play full throttle. WEEK 7 - @ MICHIGAN 2022 Record: 10-2 (7-1 Big Ten) Chicago Tribune Preseason Rank: 23 By the time week 7 rolls around and the Battle of the Blue and Yellow is here, Head Coach @jmjacobs and the Wolverines will most likely still be ranked in the top 25. After starting conference play with Oregon and then at USC, Cal comes off of a bye week to figure things out on both sides of the ball for when they head to Ann Arbor. This can be a really make or break point in the season for the Golden Bears as they head out to Washington State the following week. Starting with week 7, the following weeks 8 and 9 will be important in Cal's bowl destiny heading into their next bye week 10. 2023 SCHEDULE Week 2: @ Kansas State Week 3: Houston Week 4: Oregon Week 5: @ USC Week 7: @ Michigan Week 8: @ Washington State Week 9: Washington Week 11: @ Oregon State Week 12: Utah Week 13: @ Arizona State Week 15: UCLA Week 16: Stanford

    The Titans are excited to announce that we have hired @SageBow as a scout. Sagebow has plenty of NFLHC experience, working for the Rams, Falcons, and Steelers between 2015-2021. He is currently the coach of Harvard and coached the in-state Tennessee Volunteers for five seasons. We believe Sagebow can help bring the Titans to the next level. Feel free to ask any questions for Sagebow, @TheTodd15, or myself.

    Can this be changed from number of teams ranked to percentage of teams ranked? The Big XII has 40% of their teams ranked while the SEC and B1G both only have 35%. Why do they get a bonus because they have four more teams in their conference?

    The Florida Atlantic Owls, fresh off arguably the top C-USA recruiting class and the hiring of rookie Head Coach @bugspit1. have released their 2023 schedule. The Owls return most of their starters from their 7-5 2022 campaign, but with a new and untested head coach, it's still to be seen whether the team takes a step forward or backward.

    I already planned everything around the other 3 days that were posted in the offseason schedule thread. I love the draft but I'd be in favor moving it further out so people can plan around it.

    Syracuse Releases 2023 Schedule

    Syracuse, N.Y. -- The schedule for the 2023 football season at Syracuse has been set. CoachAnson revealed the slate today, expressing his excitement for his second season at the helm of the program. "We have a tough schedule this year," he said, "and I think that will really help us start to move this program in the direction that we want to go. This being the first year that I got to schedule the non-conference games, I wanted to put together an exciting home schedule that will get fans invested in this team and test us before conference play." The trajectory of Syracuse Football has certainly shifted upward as the 2023 season draws closer. CoachAnson closed out the recruiting season strong, moving up to the 60th ranked class nationally, good for 10th in the ACC. The two JUCO transfers should provide an immediate talent boost, and some of the incoming freshmen appeared to be competing for starting positions throughout spring practice. The Chicago Tribune recently released their preseason rankings of all 130 FBS teams. Syracuse checked in at #75, an improvement of 23 spots over last year's team. All rankings provided in this article will be based on these projected rankings. For the second straight year, the Orange's season will open with games against Purdue (#27) and Army (#83). This season, those games will be at home, giving Syracuse six home games. Following a Week 3 bye, the team will travel to Tuscaloosa, Alabama to take on the Crimson Tide (#29), who are fresh off a playoff appearance this past season. In Week 5, the Orange will square off with Notre Dame (#38) at Yankee Stadium, followed by a second bye week leading into ACC play. The ACC Coastal crossover games this year are on the road against permanent partner Pittsburgh (#34) and at home against Georgia Tech (#93). The home games against the Atlantic Division will be Louisville (#54), NC State (#74), and Florida State (#24). The divisional road games will be against Clemson (#18), Wake Forest (#90), and Boston College (#26). It will be a challenging road to bowl eligibility, but there should not be a game where the Orange don't believe they have a shot.

    Is there a fear here of enticing people to place teams from their conference in the polls? Or elevating their top team a couple spots?
