    SMALL WONDER: The Story of CFBHC's First Great Upset 1. 2014, the second season in the life of CFBHC, did not start pleasantly for Head Coach DangerZoneh and the TCU Horned Frogs. A 35-7 blowout loss at Ole Miss to open the season, followed by a 42-14 drubbing at the hands of the 20th ranked Tennessee Volunteers left Coach Danger scrambling for answers. A week 3 Thursday night win over the Duke Blue Devils did little to remove the specter of the 2-11 opening season record of the Frogs, but did give the faithful a small dose of hope as fullback Alex Engram rumbled for 111 yards and 3 touchdowns in Durham. That tiny ray of sunshine was quickly blotted out, as TCU lost its next five games. Missouri won 31-14 in Waco behind three touchdowns from quarterback Gerald Bright, while TCU managed just 205 yards of offense. Nebraksa blitzed the Horned Frogs 31-21 on a neutral field in Kansas City, with TCU quarterback Johnny Green providing the lone Horned Frog highlight with a dazzling 34 yard TD run. Green and Engram did their best, but couldn’t compete with Christopher Brooks and All-Big-12 running back James Otero, who led Kansas to a week 6 shootout win over the Frogs, 35-31. In Stillwater, OK, TCU walked into a defensive buzzsaw in the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The Horned Frogs turned the ball over twice and could get no offense rolling as the Cowboys slammed the door 24-0. The week 8 loss to the mighty Oklahoma Sooners had an outcome that diminished even the 42-21 final score. Defensive captain Ray Lee Coia was lost for the season after taking a blind hit on an interception return by Sooner Tai Miller. Both players suffered broken arms, and TCU was suddenly staring at a 1-7 record, and entering a contest with the #4 team in the land, the defending Big-12 champion, the hated Texas Longhorns, WITHOUT their best player and inspirational team leader Coia. 100 miles to the southwest, the flagship program in the state of Texas was flexing muscles first stretched in a dominant 2013 campaign that saw the might Texas Longhorns win the Big 12 with an 8-0 record en route to a 11-3 Cotton Bowl winning-season. 2014 was to be the year Texas would challenge for the national title, beginning the season ranked #2 and opening with 7 straight wins before a mid-season bye in week 8. Wins over Arkansas, Pittsburgh, and Navy, all in Austin, showed that the Longhorns could handle three very different types of offenses with their thoroughly stout defense. Travelling to West Point turned into a walk over Army. The visiting Minnesota Golden Gophers, with All-American OJ Carano, gave Texas a scare in Darrell Royal Memorial Stadium in a narrow 21-17 win for the Longhorns. Iowa State provided little resistance in Ames, rolling over for 28-3. With the bye week looming, Texas snuck past a game Kansas State squad with kicker Gino Chiaverini providing the bulk of the scoring in a 16-14 win in Austin. The Longhorns, and Coach DollaBill, were certainly looking forward to the Red River Rivalry game with Oklahoma following the bye and an easy date with the 1-7 TCU Horned Frogs. The clouds were beginning to part for the Longhorns, the path to the Playoff clear and present. 2. When CFBHC began in 2013, most teams were at the mercy of their sim-generated rosters, which were, to some extent, based on the school’s all-time “prestige.” Usual college bluebloods like Alabama, USC, Michigan, and Texas were generated with rosters that helped their coaches overwhelm teams with less traditionally-powerful rosters. In the case of the Longhorns, and first coach DollaBill, that initial roster led to an 8-0 Big-12 campaign, finishing 11-3 in 2013. TCU found themselves severely short on generated talent, and that was compounded by rotating through three coaches in 2013—Coach HookEm, clearly a puppet coach installed by a bitter booster from Austin, departed following a 1-4 start. Coach Pepper was hired, only to lose two games before receiving his pink slip. Stability finally arrived in the form of Head Coach DangerZoneh. The Horned Frogs finished a devastating opening slate at 2-11, with Coach Danger managing a closing 1-5 record playing in a modified Big 12 Conference with Houston, Rice, UCF, and Boise State. Just how deficient was the TCU initial roster? Saying that TCU was severely overmatched talent-wise in this game would be a major understatement. The TCU team only had 4 players total that had a potential rating of 4 and only one of those players had a potential rating of 4.5. From a skill perspective only one of those players had reached 4.0 and that was fullback turned running back Alex Engram. To put in perspective how vastly different the talent level between the two teams was TCU’s average skill-level on offense was a measly 2.36 and an even lower 2.09 on defense. That brought TCU’s average starting player to a skill level of 2.22 which is comparable to a C-USA team. Texas on the other hand was chock full of talent. If you examined the depth-chart for the 2014 Longhorns you would find that they only had one starter below a 3.0 skill rating and that was a redshirt freshman right-guard who had a potential rating of 4.5. The only TCU player who would have a chance to start on this Texas team was fullback Alex Engram and that would have been a toss-up since he shared the same rating as his Texas Counterpart. The Longhorns had twice as many (8) 5.0 Potential players as the TCU team had 4.0 and 4.5 potential players. Texas oozed talent at every position and realistically TCU was outmatched at every position. They play the games for a reason, however; and what those ratings don’t measure is the amount of heart and pride that TCU had during that game. 3. It was a picture-perfect day for football in Fort Worth, Texas on that November Saturday evening. The attitudes on the field couldn’t be more different as the Texas Longhorns were calm, cool, and confident heading into their matchup with the 1-7 TCU Horned Frogs. Texas saw this game as a formality on their way to Dallas for famed Red River Rivalry with Oklahoma. The Longhorns had been brilliant all season and their confidence was apparent as the teams took the field. Sterling Brown, Running Back: “We had it rolling, man. We had a little scare against Kansas State and Minnesota, but this year was our destiny. We had the defense, we had the offense, we had the kicker. They were a speed bump to roll over on our way to Dallas for the Oklahoma game.” John Jones, Quarterback: “Our offense had been clicking pretty well against some really good defenses. I could hand the ball off and watch Sterling do his thing. Our offensive line was opening up holes all over the place. Yeah, we gonna kill TCU...they were so small! And when they lost Coia, he was the only one that could have provided a challenge.” Boomer Roberts, Defensive End: “They had this great big back, Engram, who was a fullback playing running back. Dude couldn’t run, it was that simple. Shut down the running game, from him and the quarterback, and TCU is done. Our D-line was ready and out-weighed their O-line by something like 100 lbs. That’s four guys versus five.” Gordon Moreland, Cornerback: “I don’t think we really considered their passing game much of a threat at all. They had maybe broken 200 yards once in the previous 8 games, so we were mostly concerned with coming up to help stop Engram the giant.” TCU on the other hand entered the game without their defensive captain Ray Lee Coia and his loss weighed heavily on the team during warmups. From the pressbox it almost seemed like the Longhorns were about to take on a high-school team, but a sense of looseness started to come over the team. This was a school that was given no chance by anyone, the media predicted a blowout, the Longhorns didn’t respect TCU, and it started to sink in that they literally had nothing to lose. Vagas Strong, Inside Linebacker: “We were down. Most of us weren’t even sure it was worth practicing that hard. I mean, we were on our third coach in less than 20 games, we had barely won anything. I came to TCU to get a science degree, but since I had played a little football in high school, Coach said to try out for the team and here I am starting...against Texas...as a senior walk-on. You get a bit star-struck.” Johnny Green, Quarterback: “We just didn’t have anything to lose, that was our mindset. But at the same time, we didn’t have any expectation about winning, not against those guys. I know I can play a little, but we were overmatched. Watching film just put that in our minds.” Andre Gaffney, Defensive End: “When Ray Lee broke his arm, we were hopeful he could play a little with the arm in a cast. Looked like he was gonna play even on Wednesday, but then the docs and coaches said he was out. So that meant Kory Sapp had to step into his place. So we got a freshman stepping into the shoes of a senior, our leader. Yeah, that’s not gonna be good.” Head Coach DangerZoneh, TCU: "I'm not sure there was a feeling of doom going into the game, honestly. We were 1-7 but had actually played a lot of teams close. We felt that the we had faced the best defense we were going to see all year in Ole Miss and the best offenses with Kansas and OU. Our boys believed we could win, That being said, I'd be lying to you if I said I thought we'd win - or even really be that close." The Longhorns elected to receive the opening kickoff and sophomore WR Jacky Walters would take the kick out to the 25. John Jones would lead the Texas offense out on the field, but they wouldn’t stay very long when 2 short Sterling Brown runs and an incomplete pass on 3rd down would lead to a Ken Phillips punt. Johnny Green would lead the Frogs out on the field, and like the Longhorn offense, they would have little success leading to another 3 and out. Lightning would strike as Sterling Brown would take the ball right off the left tackle Brandon Reamon for a 43 yard scamper and Texas score giving them a 7-0 lead. The TCU offense would come back on the field and after 3 more plays they would give the ball back to Jones and company. The field position game would work out well for the Longhorns as Jones would complete passes to Walters and Billy Williams to get into field goal range where Gino Chiaverini would knock in a 40 yarder to make the lead 10-0. Another TCU drive ended poorly as QB Johnny Green would stare down his receiver and give Texas CB Gordon Moreland the perfect chance to pick it off. John Jones would get the opportunity to lead another Texas drive that ended with a Jacky Walters TD on a short 11 yard crossing route to extend the lead to 17 as the 1st quarter ended. John Jones, Texas QB: “We got on the field and things just felt...slow. Like we couldn’t get going. Punt for a series, get the ball back, and then Sterling rips off this awesome run around right end for the opening score. We’re thinking: “Ok, now we’re moving, no worries.” Brandon Reamon, Texas Left Tackle: “Two good early drives, 10 points. Gordon gets the pick to put us at their 30 with 1:00 to go in the quarter. After Jones hits Jacky on that crossing pattern, it’s 17-0 at the end of the first and we’re already thinking about what kind of post-game dinner we’re gonna have.” Johnny Green, TCU QB: “Well that was a stupid throw, the interception. I totally rushed the out route and threw it before the receiver was really even ready. That guy made a nice jump on the ball and grabbed it. Wouldn’t have been a problem if it were on the other end of the field, but giving it back to them on our side hurt.” Feeling the game starting to slip away from them the Frogs would receive the ball to start the 2nd quarter and reach deep into their bag of tricks. , Johnny Green would lead a methodical drive that included a healthy dose of Alex Engram, along the way Green would complete passes to tight end Tony DeMarco and WR Patrick Womack and suddenly the anemic Frog offense was driving down the field. Once the Horned Frogs reached the red zone that’s when coach DangerZoneh decided to pull a little trickeration. Here’s what it sounded like on the Frogs Radio Network “Johnny Green steps under center for 1st and 10 on the Texas 18 yard line. The ball is snapped, Johnson is coming around behind the quarterback it looks to be a wide receiver sweep, wait… he’s dropping back to throw.. DeMarco’s open in the end-zone and it’s caught!!! Touchdown Frogs!!!!!!” The play would bring excitement to the crowd and get cut the Texas lead to 17-7. Butch Johnson, TCU WR: “When Coach called the double-pass, it was the 2nd time that season that it had been called, but the first for me at the X. I was pumped. Tony got a little separation from their linebacker and I hit him with a perfect spiral. I didn’t have a big day catching the ball, so I was just excited to help out in some way.” Dan Bruce, TCU DE: “That got the whole sideline fired up. We were down, but that was a great drive and a great play. We got a little pep in our step.” Texas would not be fazed initially as they were set to receive the kick. Coach DollaBill wanted to get back to his bread and butter and pound the undersized TCU defense. However, the stadium would fall silent, as on a routine sweep, Sterling Brown would be taken down by redshirt Freshman Kory Sapp and he would stay down. The team doctor would diagnose him with a knee injury and he would be forced to miss the remainder of the game. Texas would balance the attack out and grab two more field goals before the half to take a 23-7 lead into the locker room. Gino Chiaverini, Texas K: “The long one was tricky because the wind picked up right as I kicked it, I didn’t think it was gonna go. Hitting at the end of the half was easier...the offense did good just getting me in the middle of the field, and 40 yards is pretty simple with no wind. Sucks to lose Sterling, though.” John Jones: “We knew we had to answer that trick play, and we did, pretty quickly. Just stalled out on 3rd down. We wanted to go in with 30 at half...that would have put it away. But when Sterling went down, we lost a juice in our run game, kind of made it easier for them to load up on the pass.” Brent Ring, TCU ILB: “We were able to hold them to Field goals, which helped. The trick play gave us a bit of momentum and our D played pretty well toward the end of the half. I didn’t really see what happened with We were going in without the lead, but we felt like maybe, if we executed a little better, we could get back into the game.” Halftime...where coaches make their money as motivators and master strategists... Alex Engram, TCU RB: “Coach kept telling the Defense that they were in control. He just kept repeating that: you’re in control...you own this game...you’re in control. Those of us on the offensive side, well we started to get that mindset where we jumped on the defense’s momentum.” Andre Gaffney: “We had a little success at the end of the half, and Coach made a fantastic decision to move us to a 3-5 front to better help with the short passing game. He said we were gonna put 11 guys in coverage at one time...we were like: “Coach, don’t do that!” He really meant just changing up coverages giving the QB as many looks as we could.” Coach DangerZoneh: ““I gathered them in and looked at them and said ‘Are they special? Are they better than anyone we’ve played so far? We’ve faced better teams than this. We can beat these guys. Trust me. Play our game and we’ll win.’ And that’s all I said. After that I stopped game planning. They didn’t need me to yell at them, they knew what they needed to do. Ray, on the other hand, got emotional. He got in the defense's face and was the leader he had been all season, even in a sling. Afterwards, I could see the fire in their eyes. I knew something special would happen." Jacky Walters, TEX WR: “We knew we were gonna throw the ball a little more with Sterling out. I was hoping for a big day. Their DBs were shaky in the first quarter, but you could tell, they just meant to hurt you after the second quarter. They were trying to kill us.” Willard Arnold, TEX ILB: “Having a little cushion of 23-7 felt great. We’d given up maybe 100 yards is all in the first half, some on penalties, and then the big trick play. We definitely thought we still had the physical advantage, so we were confident at halftime. Coach didn’t really give us any new looks or anything…” As the teams came out of the locker room for the second half, there was a noticeable difference in the swagger of the TCU Horned Frogs. The team was amped up, they were confident, and they believed they could pull the upset. The Frogs would return the kick to the 27 yard line and Johnny Green would go to work in the spread offense, which coach adjusted to during the half. Green ran the read-option to perfection, switching between hand-offs to Engram, QB keepers, and quick passes to Johnson and DeMarco. Green would lead the Horned Frogs all the way to the Texas 38 yard line, where they would call a Power-O off the RT for Alex Engram. “Engram takes the hand-off from Green and navigates behind the RT, he breaks through the line and is into the second-layer of the defense. Arnold gets around his block.. Engram bowled him over! There goes Alex Engram.. He could take it all the way home Touchdown!!!!! What a run folks by Alex Engram, he absolutely runs through Willard Arnold.. The extra point is good bringing us closer and a 23-14 game. Willard Arnold: “I’ve never been hit like that on a run EVER. Engram straight ran over me. I was backpedaling a little after getting around the block, but that guy trucked me good.” Boomer Roberts: “I’ve never seen Willard get hit like that. The part that was unfair was that Engram turned on the jets after running over our leading tackler. He was a fullback playing running back...what?” Butch Johnson: “I didn’t think Engram could run that fast, especially after knocking that dude flat on his ass. He took off!” Texas would take the kick looking to styme the Horned Frogs sudden momentum. Jones and the Longhorns would start the drive at the 26 yard line, but there was noticeable difference in the way they were playing. Jones would complete a nice pass over the middle to Walters to grab a first down, and Billy Williams would catch another pass to give the Longhorns a second first down, but the TCU defense dug in and forced a punt which landed at the TCU 8 yard-line. Johnny Green would pair with Alex Engram to lead another methodical TCU drive getting first down after first down with smart reads on their read-option plays and smart passes thrown in when the Longhorns would stack the box. The Frogs, who had taken up nearly 7 minutes of game clock, would drive all the way to the Texas 19 yard line. “The Frogs are in the redzone, 1st and 10 from the Texas 19. Green is under center, DeMarco comes in motion, the ball is hiked and it’s a handoff the Engr.., no wait it's a QB keeper! Green goes off right tackle slips through the arms of Arnold, and there he goes folks!!! Touchdown Frogs!!” The extra point was good bringing TCU within 2 23-21. John Jones: “We wanted to answer their touchdown run with a sustained drive, if not a score. We made two first downs, but then had to punt. Our O-line just didn’t have a lot of fire at this point, with a 9 point lead.” Johnny Green: “They pinned us at the 8 yard line, so we had 92 yards to go to this thing to a field goal. The big guys up front just started going to work, and Coach was calling some nice variations on our standard option set. Alex and I were finding some holes with a stretched out front 7.” Butch Johnson: “Johnny had some clutch throws on that drive, but he really did it with his legs. That drive ate up, what, like 7 minutes of game time?! Keep their offense on the side, let our boys go to work. That TD run from Johnny was a thing of beauty.” Gordon Moreland: “I spent that whole drive on a island, so I just got a front row seat for the butt-whipping our D-Line was getting...from these scrubs! We’d seen their QB do some nice things on film, but that run was slick.” Willard Arnold: “I should have had him wrapped up for a 2 yard gain, but he slipped out. I got freaking beat for two scores in the 3rd quarter. Not a good one for me. Our defense walked off the field sweating and hands-on-hips breathing hard.” Texas would get the ball back and go to work. Jones would lead a methodical drive down the field, and in a rush to get one more play off before the quarter ended they would call a Draw with backup running back Hugh Ledbetter. Ledbetter would get smashed however and the ball would pop loose allowing Vagas Strong to recover for the Horned Frogs. Vagas Strong: “After Johnny’s touchdown, we were fired up. Brent hit their backup tailback and popped the ball loose, right at the end of the quarter. I looked up, and saw the ball, and jumped on it!” TCU would not capitalize on the turnover, however; and would be forced to punt after a quick 3 and out. The Longhorns would come back on the field in good position, and drive down the field to set up another 40 yard field goal. The field goal attempt would go right through the uprights giving Texas a 26-21 lead. Coach DollaBill sensing it was time to put the game away went into his bag of tricks and pulled out the onside kick. TCU wasn't ready for the call and the Longhorns were able to recover the kick, giving them a chance to extend the lead and put the game out of reach. Vagas Strong: “They hit a field goal, no problem. We hadn’t given them anything since the first quarter. We called that a win. Then they try this bullshit onside-kick…” Andre Gaffney: “I’m on kick return team, and we were not ready for that. Nice for them to have a little momentum to pick that up, but we’re all like “why did they do that?” Good if it works, and it did...but it didn’t matter.” Texas had great field position and a chance to put the game away. The drive started with a short Ledbetter run, but on 2nd down Jones would take his chance. “Jones takes the snap and rolls out to the right, he sees the tight end crossing the other way and fires, but there's Kory Sapp!! Sapp picks the ball off! Sapp picks the ball off! The freshman replacing senior leader Ray Lee Coia has made the biggest play of the game!” Kory Sapp, TCU OLB: “Jones was rolling out and he looked back across the field to the tight end. I was coming across the middle from behind the play, so I saw everything. Must have just missed me in his view. Easiest INT I’ve ever had.” Johnny Green would lead the TCU offense out on the field with a chance at taking the lead. The drive didn't start as planned when he was sacked on first down. Second down Green was able to find a crossing Butch Johnson to get the ball deep into Texas territory. The pass was followed by a quick Alex Engram run to get the ball to the Texas nine yard line. “Green under center, two receivers split out wide, he takes the snap and rolls out right. Womack breaks down the middle, he's got a step, Green fires the pass. Touchdown!!! Lord, he caught the ball Touchdown Horned Frogs!!!! The extra point is good, folks we have the lead, the Horned Frogs are beating the number four team in the nation 28-26. Andre Gaffney: “We told the offense to go down and get the lead...we’d done our job.” Alex Engram: “The D played out of their minds all game...we had to do our part. We thought that Coach’s adjustments--making the game about tough vs. tired--really opened things up for us in the 2nd half. We just mimicked the 3rd quarter drives...they were done.” Boomer Roberts: “I thought the sack was going to end their drive, but that QB made some plays with his feet and kept their drive going. And the receiver made a hell of catch on the touchdown.” Gordon Moreland: “Heck of a catch...that’s not my guy, but I got caught in a motion-switch and he just beat me to the spot. Nice catch.” Vagas Strong: “Holy shit, we were leading Texas! The crowd was crazy, some lady ripped her shirt off right behind our bench. We were all fired up!” Texas would take the kickoff and promptly go three and out and punt the ball to TCU. The Frogs would gain 9 yards, but were unable to convert forcing a punt which Walters returned to the Texas 28. John Jones would be sacked on first down making it 2nd and 18. The Longhorns suddenly playing very tightly would gain 3 yards on a busted Walters screen making it 3rd and 15. Promptly the Longhorns would be called for holding making it 3rd and 25 from their own 3 yard line. “It's 3rd and 25 from the 3 for Texas and Jones takes the snap, he hands the ball off the Ledbetter, Andre Gaffney breaks through and tackles him behind the line, folks did he get him in the end zone?! They're calling it a safety!!! Gaffney with the safety and TCU takes a 30-26 lead, the crowd is going crazy!!!” Kory Sapp: “The play before, their Left Tackle got up a little slow. I thought for sure they’d pass the ball on 3rd and 25 from their own 3. Nope, handoff to the backup. Andre was right there.” Brandon Reamon: “I twisted my ankle after getting rolled up the play before. I just didn’t have good footing for a run, and he made a great play. I’m sorry it wrecked our season, but it was about the only time he got me all game.” TCU took the safety and promptly went three and out, the killer being a Butch Johnson drop on what would have been a first down. Johnny Green: “We were too hyped for the next possession...we dropped an easy pass, their D-line got some penetration. Had to kick, put it back on the D, baby.” Texas would go to work and John Jones was locked in finding Walters on a crossing route, and Williams on a deep fade that would put the Longhorns in the redzone. “Jones is under center, he motions Walters out wide, and takes the snap. Walters breaks wide out towards the back off the end-zone, Jones lofts it up there, bit there's Curtis Howard!!! That's the ballgame folks, Curtis Howard intercepts the ball and the TCU Horned Frogs have just upset the number four team in the nation!!!!!!!” John Jones: “Getting the ball back was probably a bit luckier than we deserved. But we made the most. Hit a couple of crossing routes and one deep out. Put us in good position, just inside the red zone. I made the wrong read, that’s all. Should have checked down.” Andre Gaffney: “Curtis locked that guy up good. A true freshman making that play, easily the biggest in his life. Awesome!” Curtis Howard, TCU CB: “I didn’t really get my head turned, but since we were in the endzone, I figured it had to be a fade, and it just came down so slow. It was just sitting there.” After the game, players and coaches from both sides found themselves at a loss for words to describe the scene. Johnny Green: “Just couldn’t believe it. We held our own and knocked off the #4 team in the country. We hadn’t had much to smile about, but this was a day we’ll never forget.” Alex Engram: “Man. That was a great game. We just stuck to our gameplan and played with more intensity than I could have imagined. Execution, especially in the 2nd half, was amazing. The O-line played great for us, and our Defense was awesome.” Andre Gaffney: “Something I’ll always remember, and tell my kids about.” Coach DangerZoneh: “Could not be prouder. So many players made big plays in big situations. Alex, Johnny, Curtis, Kory - all of them. I can't say enough." Brandon Reamon: “We didn’t think we’d go into that cow-town and lose to a bunch of 2-star and no-star recruits. No Sterling really hurt the offense, and Jones didn’t have one of his best games.” Gordon Moreland: “Kind of couldn’t believe it! Clock hit all zeroes, and we just stood there like zombies.” John Jones: “You come in so confident and so ready to play well. When you hit a snag like that, it takes you completely by surprise.” 4. Buoyed by the homestanding win over Texas, TCU won their next two games, over Baylor (17-14) and Iowa State (10-3), before a season-finishing loss to the Red Raiders of Texas Tech (34-7). But finishing the season at 4-8 hardly dampened the spirits of Coach Danger and his crew. The coaching staff got right to work identifying the kinds of players they would need to pull off a similar upset in the future. TCU grabbed a couple of studs in the 2014 JuCo recruiting sweepstakes in RB Bradley Cooley, TE Paul Carter-Williams, OT Charles Mahan, and a pair of Free Safeties Andrew Wright and Quinn Cooper. The overall 2014 recruiting class was ranked in the Top 10 by numerous services and featured eventual All-American wide receiver Jamel Beckham. 2015 began with much promise, still riding the high of knocking off mighty Texas. However, the youth movement needed one more season to develop, and the Horned Frogs lost their first six contests before finishing 3-9. The Horned Frogs were unable to repeat their success versus Texas in Austin in 2015, as the Longhorns enacted a measure of revenge with a 51-7 victory over a young TCU squad. Another stellar recruiting off-season saw TCU again surge in the national eye, and 2016 saw the Frogs sneaking into the Top 25 for parts of the campaign. A season-opening loss to the Georgia Bulldogs was the only blemish through much of the season--TCU went on to win 8 straight before finally dropping consecutive games to Oklahoma and, yes, Texas. The Frogs did finish the regular season with a win over Baylor, leading to a win in the school’s first bowl game, the Bourbon Bowl over Ohio State. Flipping their record from the previous season completely around, TCU finished 2016 10-3. It led to even bigger things, and bigger wins, in 2017 (13-2, a Pinstripe Bowl win over Air Force and Top 5 national ranking, but with a loss at Texas in week 12) and 2018 (won first 11 games, lost final three including Conference Championship Game to Kansas and Alamo Bowl to USC). In the 2018 season, TCU was finally able to recreate their famous victory over Texas, bringing their all-time record versus the Longhorns to 2-4. 2019 began with the same promise, and a Top 10 national preseason ranking, but the talent losses from the Horned Frog heyday led to a dismal 1-8 opening to this current season, of course including a 31-27 loss to Texas. But the mark was clear: the 2014 TCU Horned Frogs found the right mix of emotion and execution to pull off the most remarkable upset in site history. Several players from the game went on to be drafted in the NFLHC draft. Jacky Walters, Alphonso Greisen, and Alex Engram can reminisce about the game together as they now share the same uniform suiting up for the Miami Dolphins. Willard Arnold plays a big role for the New England Patriots starting at inside linebacker for them. Offensive Tackle Brandon Reamon, a freshman during the game, was drafted in the 2018 draft by the Tennessee Titans and currently is their starting left tackle. Harry Whiteside, a freshman slot receiver for the Longhorns, currently is a starter for the Kansas City Chiefs. Willie Wood is manning the safety position in New Orleans and finally Gino Chiaverini is still kicking field goals with the Atlanta Falcons. Texas, for its part, did not exactly let the defeat to TCU in 2014 derail their future success. But it certainly dampened the spirits of the 2014 campaign. The next week, Texas went to Dallas for the Red River Rivalry game against #15 Oklahoma. They came out flat and uninspired in a 24-14 loss. With the dream of a national title season evaporating, Texas dropped a third straight game to Oklahoma State (10-7) before re-grouping and closing out the regular season with two wins, over Texas Tech (35-7) and Baylor (35-7). The solace of a Meineke Car Care Bowl proved just beyond inspiration as the Longhorns closed out a disappointing 2014 season with a loss to Pittsburgh, 35-21. Coach DollaBill, midway through a potentially promising 2015 season which finished 7-6, was dismissed for IPGate violations. Replaced by former Arizona State head man AzulCaballero, the Texas faithful felt they had finally found their man. 2016 was a turnaround for the Burnt Orange, as the Longhorns responded to Azul’s coaching with a 12-2 season, Big-12 championship, and close loss to Notre Dame in the Peach Bowl, to finish ranked #5 in the country. But it was all a prelude to the magical 2017 season. Texas, despite a 2OT loss to the West Virginia Mountaineers in week 8, ran the table all the way to a National Title, defeating Nebraska in the title game. 2018 and thus far in 2019, the dice haven’t fallen as grandly for the Longhorns, but a National Title is worth its weight in gold in the land of CFBHC, and much is forgiven after. Texas came back from their disastrous night in Fort Worth in 2014 stronger than ever.

    Dear diary, I was drafted by the Colts. It was very cool. All of my friends were happy. I was on TV! Hi Mom and Dad! Then I got a trip to Hawaii! It is far away so I took a plane ride! Then I did all kinds of cool things! Like surfing! And there was a beach! And at the end of the night I went to sleep. It was a very fun trip!

    CFBHC Development Announcement

    All, I'd like to welcome Broletariat aboard as a developer so we can hopefully, finally, get our own fully automated system in place for future seasons of both CFBHC and NFLHC. Our plan heading forward will be two-fold: Soluna - I will head the administrative side as well as providing project guidance. We will indirectly involve the entire community in the decision making on the project through a variety of initiatives (that will be outlined in the future) although we will have final say on the course of development. Broletariat - He will do the majority of coding and development in conjunction with my algorithms and ideas. We're going to try an "open style" of development to keep people informed and present information as we develop it. We'll do this as follows: Public Development Forum - A new forum that will come up shortly that will provide a space for us to move stuff from our private development forum as necessary. Development Polls - Occasionally in the new forum I will post polls that will have an impact on our development, anyone is free to vote in them as long as they are open. Developer Diaries - Either of us will occasionally post in-depth looks at features that have been developed and are ready to show of OR a vision towards an upcoming module in development. Keep in mind that, no matter how amazing an idea sounds, we might just not have the capabilities of doing everything. A simulation as complex as I know most of you wants just isn't feasible as you would essentially be simulating life... but we will do our best. You guys can play a major role by staying active with any polls or feedback we ask of you. Thanks, Soluna and Broletariat

    What if I told you... that sometimes even scoring 40 can you lose you a championship? Soluna: "That was the defining moment of my college football coaching career, there just isn't much else you can bring." What if I told you... that in a game with 700 yards of offense, it would be decided by just 1? Norris Brooksheer: "It really was just amazing, to have that whole season come down to just that one moment." Pete Choboian: "Looking back on it now, I really can't believe how that game ended... everyone fought so hard. " What if I told you... Ian Smith's crowning moment came on the final play of his college career? ...and propelled ChicagoTed1 into the CFBHC History Books... ...CFBHC Films presents "Sooner or Later" - the story of the 2015 Oklahoma Sooners.

    Happy 2nd Birthday CFBHC!

    Thanks everyone, but especially those who've been here since the beginning!
  10. 39 points
    After 222 days, 21 hours, and roughly 20 minutes of online time, and five CFBHC seasons, five SHC seasons, (almost) four NFLHC seasons, and one CBBHC season, I'm retiring. Between the job I started a few months ago, my recent engagement/wedding stuff, and buying a house, I just won't have the time I'd like to devote to the site. To say it's been fun would be the understatement of the century. A ginormous thanks goes out to Soluna for the billions of hours of work and all the money, blood, sweat, tears, etc. that he put into making this site and keeping it all rolling. When you take a step back, it's pretty remarkable how a bunch of (mostly) strangers came together to spend all day online playing a forum football simulator together. The Dawgs finished with our fourth straight 10-win regular season. The Saints are aiming for a Super Bowl trip. Bayern took home our elusive league title. Georgia CBBHC team is awful. Couldn't ask for a better way to go out! Thanks to Soluna, the rest of the mods, and all the users for a great ride. P.S. Wedding date is April 23, 2016...HYPE!

    Site Appreciation Thread

    I'm sure several of these have already been posted (hell I may have posted one too), but I'm feeling pretty sappy right now and wanted to say a bit. This site has been a major part of my life for years now, and it really means a lot to me. I know I haven't been on as much lately, and have started feeling more and more disconnected from this site, which is why I want to say something. Sorry for the massive incoming text. I joined CFBHC.com on January 25th, 2014. 971 days ago. In that time, I've spent over 272 days of time online. That's 28% of the time since I joined this site, I've been online. If you add in ~6 hours to sleep each day, that number jumps up to 37%. Over a 3rd of my waking time, I've spent on this site. It was pretty much by accident, as most people found the site. Rome put up a post on reddit about the site and it caught my eye. If I'm being completely honest, at first I didn't give it much thought because I kinda assumed I'd have to pay for it. After reading it, though, I was intrigued. More than that, I was intrigued by the prospect of taking over my beloved Horned Frogs (in hindsight, it may have been cool to take a team that I didn't have an emotional connection to, but I couldn't be happier where I am). I wavered for a bit, but ended up joining the site that night and going through and setting my depth chart and setting my gameplan. Round 3 of recruiting was ending that night, so the site was incredibly busy. For all of the coaches out there who weren't here for recruiting circa 2013-2015, it's hard to compare it to what we have today. I can remember in 2015, my hands were physically shaking as I read through the results. I remember spending a lot of time in the next couple of days thinking about what I wanted my team to look like and how I wanted to recruit. It was very exciting. A few days later, on Thursday night, I played my first game and got absolutely torched. Lost 42-21 to UCF. Trance Buchanan rand for 300 yards and 6 TDs. I maaaaaaay have played the pass. But in that moment, I was hooked. More personally, I found this site at a transitional point in my life. I didn't really have anything going on with my life. I don't know if I realized it at the time, either, but I couldn't have found this site at a more perfect time. I was a senior in high school, at the beginning of my last semester. Over the past 4 years in HS, my life had been defined by playing football. During the season, I'd go to school, work out in the morning, go to class, go to practice, repeat. On Friday nights I played my games and on Saturdays I watched college football with my mom for about 14 hours (still one of my favorite things to do). And I was happy with that. I had friends, especially on the football team, and it's not like I considered myself lonely, but at some level I was. I still saw all my friends during the school day, but afterwards? The only people I ever really saw was my family. I was never the one to go out with friends, mainly because I was exhausted on Friday nights and spent Saturday watching football. I say I found this site at the perfect time because I think that without it, I'd have only felt more and more lonely, especially now that the football season had just ended. But now? I had someone to talk to. Over the rest of the semester, I got closer and closer to the people on here and knew that no matter what, there was always someone to talk to in the shoutbox. I leaned on that a lot. There's a reason I have 85,000+ shouts. I'm not joking when I say that there were legitimately weeks at a time where I would not miss a single shout. I would be on the shoutbox until 1-2 AM, wake up for school and read the shoutbox while I'm getting ready, go to school and from there basically be on my laptop all day talking to people. After that, go home and repeat. It probably wasn't healthy, but it gave me something. That continued through the summer of 2014 (still honestly the golden era of CFBHC imo), and into fall. I'm not going to get into as many details here, but the fall semester of my freshman year of college was a rough time for me. Long story short, my dad was falsely accused of embezzlement, was placed under investigation, and lost his job - all while I'm not near my family to really be able to know what was happening. I didn't have anyone to talk to on campus about it and I kinda shut myself off from everyone except the site. I would sit by myself to eat and just be on my laptop talking to people here. I don't know what I would have done without CFBHC at that point and it scares me to think about. So from the bottom of my heart, I thank everyone here for helping me get through some of the toughest points in my life. All that being said, I'm in a much better place now. I have my fraternity brothers and other friends here on campus that I can confide in. The friends I've made here are still some of the closest friends I've ever had, guys like trey, aj, storm, Sophos, Franz, Cade, Dean, Dream, alien, rabid, Rome, Darman, neo, grv, taffy, and so so so many more that I can't mention them all. Even so, I've felt myself becoming more and more disconnected from the site. I don't spend every waking moment on it anymore, and I don't dominate the shoutbox as much as I used to. I think that's a good thing. I think that, while this site helped me so much, my connection to it became almost unhealthy and being on here in moderation is a much better option. I'm not leaving the site anytime soon, but I'm not sure I'll ever be as into it as I was before. And finally, I want to say a special thanks to Soluna for how much sheer effort he puts into making this site run. I know we've had our differences, but everything I've said and done has been because I want to see this site become the best version it could possibly be. You do an absolutely incredible job in so many aspects. You've created something incredible here, and I don't think people tell you that enough. You've taken a group of 60+ /r/cfb trolls and gotten them to care about players they only see as words on a screen. But from those words, players have personalities! From a statline, they've grown into something very real in the minds of the people on the site. I don't know if I've ever seen a place where imaginary players can be so real. So whenever you feel down about the day to day complaints and squabbles on this site, I want you to know that you've created an amazing community here and I have so much admiration and respect for both you and what you've done. I didn't really mean for this to be this long and personal, but I've been thinking for a long time about this and figured I'd tell my story and why this site and everyone on it is special to me. Sorry if this isn't the right time or place to do this. In all honesty, I find it hard to remember what I did on the internet before I found this place. It's been a long, bumpy road (certainly with more bumps to come), and at some times we may be at each others throats, but it's important to step back sometimes and remember how incredible this site is and the impact it's had on not just me but so many people. I've made friends on here that I'm going to have for life and I have to thank everyone here for that. Holy shit this was long. Sorry about that. tl;dr: CFBHC is amazing and I wouldn't have it any other way

    Welcome to 2016! WIth the anticipation of the standalone building and the stopping of development for the old sim we will begin the year with some major changes to a dated forum (along with a final release for the old sim, coming soon). The key thing I wanted to focus on for these sets of changes is the divide between people (such as myself) who would prefer much more hard core roleplaying and those that would prefer to keep it simple and not as serious. I have, for now, decided to bridge the site at some point in the middle. More roleplaying will be better and, while some roleplaying is going to be recommended, you can still get by not participating in this part of the site at all. The RP Subforum Conference commissioners will receive official conference accounts to post official conference news. Coaches will need to roleplay in comments and threads they create in this subreddit. They will receive benefits, benefits, bonuses, or traits attached to their account based on how they act in both coaching and personality. Acting negatively will cause consequences such as recruiting point losses, negative traits, and even coaching/bowl suspensions. Assistant coaches: You will be able to hire offensive and defensive coordinators that each come with their own unique traits to boost your program in ways that you want. If you are ever suspended for any reason you may designate a coordinator to take over for you. Traits: A post detailing possible traits, how to acquire them, and what they provide will be created in the near future. There will be an additional FAQ thread relating to this at the same time. General Discussions: These will be split, please keep RP-level discussion in this forum and remove smack talk to the non-RP forum. Realistic press conference: I have not quite formatted how these will work yet but there will be better media within the RP sub. Recruiting will provide more in depth news along with additional High School information. The non-RP Subforum Everything here will remain the old way along with non-RP press conferences and joke threads. I will detail each point more as I work on them, if you have any questions please PM this account. The old Soluna account will be reverted to regular member to deal with only personal sim gaming. Thanks!

    Welcome to CFBHC Conference-USA!

    Additionally, Navy will move to the AAC (schedules will need to be adjusted accordingly for OOC). Georgia State will move to Independent until the creation of the Sun Belt occurs. Also, Marshall, Rice, and North Texas will join the above 11 programs to create the new 14-team conference. This drops the AAC to 12 teams which means each division there will play 2 cross-division games. The open spot in the MWC (left by North Texas) will be replaced with: New divisions are as follows: AAC East: Cincinnati, Connecticut, East Carolina, South Florida, Temple, UCF AAC West: Houston, Memphis, Navy, Tulsa, SMU, Tulane MWC Mountain: Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, New Mexico, Utah State, Wyoming MWC West: Fresno State, Hawaii, Nevada, San Jose State, San Diego State, UNLV C-USA East: Charlotte, FIU, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Old Dominion, WKU, Florida Atlantic C-USA West: Louisiana Tech, Rice, North Texas, Southern Miss, UTEP, UTSA, and UAB Also the following game report will be the official game report beginning with the first game of next season

    Event #2: Marcus Williams

    THE SEAHAWKS HEAD COACH MAY SUBMIT A RESPONSE UNTIL 11:30 PM ET 2/7/2017 Post-draft images have emerged of Marcus Williams celebrating in a room with friends. It is very clear Marijuana was smoked at the party based on materials seen in a variety of images posted to facebook, twitter, and instagram. The league may look into the situation but it is unclear if Williams participated in any drug abuse. The Seahawks have been asked to reach a decision on this rumor: A ) Suspend Marcus Williams for 1 pre-season game (team decision). B ) Suspend Marcus Williams for 1 regular season game (team decision). C ) No punishment (team decision). D) Let the commissioner handle the punishment (whether their should even be one).

    Armistice Day

    "In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie, In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields." While Armistice Day is mostly celebrated intermingled with Veterans Day on November 11th I just wanted to thank you guys again for the, in general, peaceful nature of this site. We hate each other often over trivial things but no one really carries any grudges forward (or so I hope!). November 11th is a day that for European and British Commonwealth Nations signifies the end of WW1 ("at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day in the eleventh month in the year of our Lord 1918 the guns fell silent") and large-scale memorials were held today in locations that would otherwise be trivial. Ypres, Belgium. Verdun, France. Gallipoli, Turkey. Why does the Poppy symbolize Armistice Day? It was the only thing that would grow in the fields littered by artillery shells and human remains and the only life that returned to No Man's Land for quite some time after the battles ended. Whether you celebrate Armistice Day, Veteran's Day, or just think of your nations Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, take some time today to think about Peace. Do something good, help someone. 20,000,000 people died in World War I (military and civilian). My family lost 9 men in the span of 2.5 years. Germany lost 5% of its total population, France 4%, Serbia 26%. As is tradition, once a year I've been making a donation in the name of a site to a cause or event that I think we can all agree on - so this year I will create a sponsorship at the Douaumont Ossuary in Verdun, France for us. The Ossuary serves as the final resting place for 15,000 soldiers and the remains of upwards of 100,000 more that could never be identified. Visiting the site is a life changing experience that I encourage you all to undertake at some point in your life. A graveyard was created for as many soldiers as they could fit on the mountainside. All unidentified remains were placed into the base of a memorial ossuary. Most soldiers you are looking at in the pictures below we're between 16 and 25. This is our age group. French. British. German. All gone. Why did this happen? Pride, nationalism, and ignorance. We are better than this. "They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted, They fell with their faces to the foe. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them." A short ways away from Douaumont are the remains of a small village, Fleury-devant-Douaumont, where you can see what these sites look like even a hundred years later. The artillery shell holes are still evident. Life has still only barely returned.

    I expect that you've worn my patience thin. I gave you three chances, somehow each progressive attempt showed you giving less of a fuck. I'm tired of your trolling or supreme idiocy, whatever you call your existence. At least 5 members have spent a combined 20+ hours helping you do something that should take 5-10 minutes to complete. You're either unwilling to learn the rules, unwilling to figure stuff out unless it's handed directly to you on a platter, or have the thought capacity of a camel. You are free to reapply after you take a reading comprehension class. Banned.

    CBBHC, Welcome to the Family!

    Thanks to inspiral, who will be in charge of running the sim for this (via the interface) and especially to him for developing the entire system that will be used. Depth Charts, gameplans, etc will all be in the spirit of CFBHC/NFLHC (easy to learn, hard to master), scheduling, games, and of course our very own CBBHC Tournament will all be available on the interface. CBBHC seasons will be shorter than real ones and act mostly as an offseason CFBHC bridge although we might extend them to add more games. You will control the CBBHC team of the school that you play in CFBHC. New users who want to play but only joined CFBHC as coordinators can join as non-football basketball schools (Marquette, Georgetown, etc). Obviously you don't have to play if you don't want to, in which case your school will not be represented in the sim. Here are some highlights from the upcoming release of CBBHC, release date TBD. (all below "screenshots" are subject to change by actual release) PF Adam Williams 6-8 266 Fr (Indianapolis, IN) [Zone] 80 PG/SG - Shooting/Driving SF/PF/C - Zone/Man Offensive Schemes: * Princeton offense (focused on cutting movement/passing - all players) * Dribble drive offense (focused on kick outs and penetration - 3s and PG, SG) * Pick and roll offense (post play, penetration, and kick outs - 3s and SF, PF, PG) * Triple-post offense (post play - SF, PF, C) * Grinnell offense (quick shots, many substitutions - 3s and all players) Offensive Shooting: * More inside (additional focus on SF, PF, and C) * Balanced * More outside (additional focus on PG and SG) Offensive Tempo: * Shoot early (more mistakes but helps against teams with poor stamina) * Set play (less mistakes, more time taken off the clock) Defensive Schemes: * Zone defense (defends the inside well, but leaves the 3-point line less defended) * Half-court man defense (one-on-one matchups worse against good inside players) * Full-court press defense (maybe better for athletic but not particularly skilled teams - good stamina/strength/vertical/etc. and poor man defense/zone defense) * Half-court zone trap defense (fatigue faster and more mistakes, focused on turnovers, defends outside better than zone defense) Defensive Press: * Only when behind * Balanced * All the time Defensive Pressure: * Play tight (might lead to more fouling, less open shots) * Balanced * Play passing lanes (less fouling, more open shots) Player Substitutions: * Never * Slightly * Frequently
