    That's a series that's going to analyse the Sun Belt's team depth chart, based on the roster for the 2024 season. We start the series analysing the Appalachian State Mountainers: Disclaimer: The depth chart was made based on the formula used to verify the team’s overall (skill + potential/2), unless, the player was already starting last season, then, I let the player as the starter. In case of a tie, I placed the highest potential player as the starter. In order to determine if the team uses a 3-4 or 4-3 defense, I compared the second DT to the second ILB. Which one graded higher determined the scheme used. 1.

High Point The improvement on the offensive line, from one season to another, is impressive. The Mountaineers had the worst O.L Rating in the Sun Belt last season (by far), and, now, without losing any starter to graduation, they bring 3 new starters, including Mike Pence, that will be playing in the NFLHC in a few years. Also, the recruiting class deserves a note. A lot of talent on the skill positions, lead by Darion Holmes, who will be hauting the other Sun Belt Teams in the near future. 5. Low Point If Appalachian State improved a lot on the OL, the same cannot be said about their DL. Only with 3.0/3.0 players, this is going to be one of the worst sectors of this team in the next season, and focused by the opposed HCs. 6. Overall The Mountaineers are clearly on their way up. The fact the this team lacked a lot of talent last season is shown by the amount of new players starting right away (the highest amount on the Sun Belt). This may come to bite them in some part of the season, but they are in a MUCH better position for the 2024 season, then they were for the 2023.

    It's official: University of Pittsburgh head coach @TheLiberator is the new head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team announced Thursday. Contract details were not disclosed but it is said to be a 3 year contract according Adam Schefter of NFLHC.com. TheLiberator posted a 10-3 record in his lone season at Army before moving on to Pitt where he's taken them to three consecutive bowl games. He has no previous NFLHC experience but that didn't stop the Steelers from tabbing him as their next coach. "We interviewed multiple candidates, some with NFLHC experience and some without" said Steelers owner and GM @joedchi. "TheLiberator has a vision and a desire to bring the Steelers back to the top of the division and beyond. He's also a Pittsburgh guy and that weighed heavily in the decision." We're excited to bring him in to join with myself and Head Scout @StorMy. TheLiberator replaces @TuscanSota who stepped down at the end of the season. #SteelersNation

    … because we are promoting Dacder to GM, where I will remain as owner. Slinky and I before the season even started were on the lookout for a scout to then takeover after the season was finished, we were thrilled to be able to hire someone with previous GM and coaching experience in Dacder with this plan already in mind. Despite the change in structure expect not much to change. Any decisions we make already, we already do as a team between the three of us so while Dacder was a scout and Slinky the coach, any trade, re-signing etc. was already discussed as a team before being finalized. After Slinky and I almost missed the last 2 drafts and missing rounds 5-7 completely last year, we knew it was time to bring in a 3rd member of the staff to see how we think and operate to then take over the following off-season. I want to congratulate Dacder on his new role and the low-pressure opportunity he got himself into taking over for the defending Super Bowl Champs Fib Ur Go Loins #PromoteDacder P.S. If anyone looked at my coaching skills update post closely, they would have caught on to this a couple weeks ago, I think only Jieret noticed

    Allen Park, MI Thanks everyone for coming, fresh off our super bowl win over Kansas City, spirits are high in the Lions organization. I would like to take the time to thank Slinky for all his hard work coaching and coaching the best defense in NFLHC history and Dacder for his scouting, opinions, and media writing throughout the course of the season. After years of being close and not being able to get to, let alone win the Super Bowl, we are thrilled to live up to our preseason super bowl prediction and go out and do it. We are excited to bring home the trophy to our fans in Detroit and start working on getting ready for the draft and the 2024 season and the opportunity to defend our crown. With that being said, we have some staff changes to announce, we are letting the scout contract of Dacder expire. #FireDacder

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. I'm 20 years old and have always wanted to come back to play at a big conference. I work at a local grocery store freezing my ass off in the freezer section. Born and raised in Ohio. I always put as much time into building my team, strategizing my game plan, and updating the wiki. Maybe even putting out some media in the process. 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? I have plenty of time weekly. 20+ hours. 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 have never really gotten that mad at losing unless you're talking about Jucos . That was a one time deal though took some anger from my life and took it out on the site. I have since apologized and promised to never do it again. I did however finish my season so it was the proper time to leave. 8. How did you find out about this site?

    Player Profile: Name: Alexander Moffett Position: Outside Linebacker Style: Coverage OLB Ranking (Based on Rating): 10 Coverage OLB Ranking: 2 Height: 6-2 Weight: 224 College: Buffalo High School: Southside Hometown: Elmira, NY Player Line: OLB Alexander Moffett 6-2 224 R Buffalo [Coverage] [+1/C] [+] 76 Moffett grew up in Elmira, NY. Typically, most of the top players in that area end up at Temple, Pittsburgh, or Penn State. Alexander chose a different route. Buffalo came calling, and he answered. He was a 3.0/4.5 Recruit, and Coach sodapopseth would not be denied. He became a starter on Day 1 and never looked back. He racked up over 100 Tackles in his career, but wasn't always the playmaker that the Bulls needed. 2023 Stats: Statsheets: 8 Tackles: 49 TFL: 4 PD: 6 Moffeet ended his career on a good note however. 49 Tackles was a career high, so were his 4 TFL and 6 PD. He finished his career with 113 Tackles, 4 TFL, 1 Sack, 1 INT, 8 PD, and 1 FF. Nothing there really excites you, but going out like he did is a good sign. Game Tape Analysis: Week 1: BYU Moffett didn't impact the running game much, as the Cougars threw it 51 times. This played right into Moffett's strength. He's on the lighter side for most OLBs, and carries a bit more speed and athleticism. He was able to drop back into coverage and play the middle of the field well, deflecting two passes. Certainly a good way to start the season for him. Week 4: Ohio This game was viewed at the time as a potential MAC East decider. But, it was over by the end of the 1st Quarter. Moffett finished the game with 6 Tackles and a PD, which looks nice. Until you see how Freshman Bobcat TE Miles Hooker did, 9 receptions for 118 Yards and a TD. Moffett was matched up with Hooker for most of the game, and looked lost for long stretches of the game. Definitely his worst game of the year. Week 11: Kent State The Flashes struggled all year on offense, and Moffett took advantage. He racked up 6 Tackles along with a TFL and a PD. He was all over the field for the Bulls and looked really good. Strengths: Coverage. Alexander is much more comfortable dropping back into zone and reading the QB's eyes. He doesn't have great hands, but has good instincts and finds the right places to be. Experience. Moffett has started for 4 years at Buffalo, there isn't much he hasn't seen on the field. He'll bring that experience and should adapt to pro play quicker than others. Weaknesses: Pass Rush. Alexander has 1 career sack in over 48 Games Started. You cannot play him in a 3-4 Pass Rushing role, he will flounder. He's purely a 4-3 coverage OLB. Defensive Scheme. Take a quick glance at the 2023 Buffalo Depth Chart. What scheme are they running? Who's rushing the passer? I don't know, and neither did the players. When he comes to the Pros, he'll need some work to get settled in training camp and Pre-Season. Draft Outlook: Moffett is a Mid-Tier player who may get overdrafted due to the weakness at the position. He can be on your roster year one, but will have to be rotational at most. He may become a solid starting OLB at some point, but will never be a top end at his position player. I can see him going Early 3rd. Given how weak OLB is, and how few Coverage guys there are at the top (Moffett is 2nd behind Gregory Gibson). He probably should go Late 3rd to Early 4th, but he goes a little high.

    After an intense couple of days in Cleveland interviewing potential candidates for the vacant scouting role, Owner @Kirby today announced that the search was over, and the Threesome was officially becoming a Foursome. Without further ado, the Browns and all of us in the Dawg Pound are pleased to welcome new Chief of Scouting @LAX to the organisation. We managed to catch up with our Owner for a quick word on the hire and what this means for the all important off-season: "I'd like to just start by saying thank you to everyone who applied for the role. We had an overwhelmingly positive response to our job advert and i'm confident that the unsuccessful candidates will find their way into the NFLHC. That being said, we are thrilled to be bringing LAX on board here in Cleveland. He has a wealth of experience, both at college and at the pros, and the insight he provided in his interview was second to none. We have a very busy period coming up now. As I touched on last time we spoke, it's imperative that we make the most of this off-season and put the building blocks in place for the now, and for the future. I'm confident that with the work ethic that LAX is going to bring into the scouting department, we won't miss a beat. I'm excited to see what LAX can bring to the table and myself, @brightfalls and @Suffocation are pleased to welcome him into the office with us". Somethings definitely brewing in Cleveland, and we here at Cleveland Browns Daily like what we are seeing. Stay hungry, Dawgs! #DAWGPOUND

    [2023] npklemm's Revamped Team Ratings

    Link to prior ratings: http://cfbhc.com/index.php?/topic/28212-2023-bofa-nflhc-mid-season-rewind-team-rankings-contenderpretender/ What's Changed? In my prior set of ratings, I took a team's performance in a certain stat and compared it to the league's best. It was essentially a % Tool. What I have done is ranked each team and applied a grade to each rating (100 for #1 down to 0 for #32). The weights and categories stayed the same. I also changed it from a Base 10 to Base 100 (max score is 100, lowest score is 0). This is still a comparative tool, I can't apply this to a team's performance in an individual game and apply a grade. Offense Defense Overall

    ~TUSCALOOSA, AL A dull grey hangs over the small college town of Tuscaloosa, AL as football season comes and goes with a disappointing showing from the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Tide started the season highly ranked, but a very tough non-conference schedule and an overall amazing year for the SEC saw the Tide finish with a loss to the Iowa State Cyclones in their bowl game. Shortly after, redshirt junior Dillion Root announced his decision to forgo his senior season and declare for the NFLHC draft. Root's departure leaves a hole in what's shaping up to be one of the best offensive line units in the country, lead by junior guard Luther Stoll. "Dillon was a good guy, and I wish him all the best in the league, but we felt like we were ready to make a name for ourselves as the best line in the country. With or without him, we're ready to get some payback from last year. Time to get this CAAAAASH MONEYYYYYY!" Stoll's energy is infectious around spring practice for the Tide. Redshirt freshman guard Mason Mullins has started to turn heads, and some are wondering if he will see significant playing time this year. Even still, many fans have questions about what the Crimson Tide are going to do about the center position. "We've got a lot of guys we think can come in a do a job for us this season. Now, they may not think it's their best position, but we gotta do everything we can to put ourselves in a position to win" said HC CadeRich5. ATH Sam Tobin 6-4 333 (So) Thomas County Central (GA) 3.5 of 5.0 [Pass Blocking] OG Angelo Chastain 6-2 303 (Jr) North Forsyth (Cumming GA) 4.5 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking]C Solomon Crosby 6-3 284 (Jr) Brookhaven (Brookhaven MS) 3.5 of 3.5 [Run Blocking]LS Garrett Hensley 6-3 269 (Fr) Fruitdale (Fruitdale AL) 2.5 of 5.0 [Specialized] Redshirt sophomore Sam Tobin, redshirt juniors Angelo Chastain and Solomon Crosby, and redshirt freshman Garrett Hensley have all been getting first team reps at center, and it seems to be changing day to day. At the moment, Tobin and Chastain seem to be the favorites to win the job, but Hensley has started to prove he might be more than just a special teamer.

    Oregon coach, @bingo415, yelling during the championship game of the PK Invitational versus @DarthJarJar's Lobos Turmoil Brewing After Pac-12 Annual Meeting San Francisco, CA This season saw a unique merger of the country's two most western conferences in order to field a full, piece-mealed conference to participate in Division 1 basketball. Though this scrapped-together conference operates under the umbrella of the Pac-12, Arizona, Oregon, and Washington were the only full-member programs able to field a team for this season. Though the second conference of this merger, The Mountain West, didn't receive the glory of naming rights, five of their full time members were able to participate in this inaugural season to outnumber the Pac-12 representation. These details seemed to be ignored when Pac-12 commissioner, @bingo415, unveiled the contract renewal language needed to retain the Mountain West organizations as basketball-only members for the 2024 season. This contract gave a 75% split of TV revenue to the participating Pac-12 programs leaving the additional 25% to be split between Mountain West schools as well as the orphaned Gonzaga and UTSA programs. "This is unacceptable," stated Mountain West commissioner @DarthJarJar, "We've operated this temporary conference merger under good faith that both conferences will receive equal benefits. We entered into this partnership so that both conferences could be allowed to develop this new product of basketball in a steady, sustainable manner and to allow ample time for the remaining members of our conferences to generate the funding needed to field their own teams. We now see this partnership can not continue as proposed." While no further comments were obtained from either commissioner on the matter, rumors and leaks have continued to paint a certain divorce between both organizations. Currently, it appears both conferences will split into something resembling this starting the 2024 seasons: Pac-12 Conference (Basketball Participants) Arizona Wildcats Oregon Ducks Stanford Cardinal (joining 2024) Washington Huskies Mountain West Conference (Basketball Participants) U.S. Air Force Academy Falcons Boise State Broncos Colorado State Rams New Mexico Lobos Utah State Aggies (joining 2024) Wyoming Cowboys Unknown Conference / Independent Gonzaga Bulldogs UTSA Roadrunners Neither conference is expected to have a full stable of members to participate in the upcoming basketball season causing some sense of urgency by both commissioners to either recruit more programs or to set aside their differences and come up with a revenue-split compromise. In the coming weeks, it'll surely be interesting to see the strategies of growth for both conferences going forward. Will the Pac-12 be able to retain UTSA and Gonzaga, or will they deflect as well? Will both conferences begin to poach potential mid-major schools and elevate them to basketball-only members of their conferences? And maybe most importantly, will we begin to see a war of investments from each conference to expedite funding for their full-time members to develop basketball programs before the 2024 season. Currently, the follow teams have yet establish basketball programs: Pac-12 Conference (Non-Basketball Participants) Arizona State - @SageBow California - @noodlz2 Colorado - @NateTheGreat Oregon State - @jc_superman UCLA - @cultur3 USC - @Jumbo Utah - @Kirby Washington State - @Ricky Campbell Mountain West Conference (Non-Basketball Participants) Fresno State - @Hchou17 Hawai'i - @GigemAgs Nevada - @Joopear San Diego State - @pumph San Jose State - @redeye4 UNLV - @ChizDippler Time will tell if this expected divorce will work out in the best interest of both conferences, or if their kids will be the one's that take the damages.

    [2024] Auburn Tigers Season Preview

    Second campaign for Auburn's Dominick Sherman. Can the scrambler flourish with another off-season of seasoning? The seniors and studs are off to the pros.

The continued development of Dominick Sherman and the new offense. Following up a national championship season is never easy. Starting a redshirt freshman at quarterback with a new offensive system always seemed like a bit of a problem and the struggles early in the season were the result. With a full season of game time and a second off-season, the expectations are high for Dominick Sherman. The young man completed 63.56% of his passes for 17 touchdowns, 2639 yards, and 8 interceptions. " We've got to get better throwing the ball, all-around." Coach Rome said leading up to the Citrus Bowl. " We're completing some passes, but they don't really seem to go anywhere. That's the issue." Quite the puzzle for a wide receiver stable that features all-state track stars. Part of the problem lies with the receivers, but the first blamed is always the signal caller. The good news for Dominick is he returns 3 of his top 4 receivers from last season--and the loss, Kelvin Andrade, was only 3rd in catches despite seeing the most snaps of any WR on the roster last season. Sherman will have to deal with the partial loss of his favorite receiver, as we'll address below, but rumors around Auburn is the coaching staff has invited in Air Raid guru Hal Mumme to work on passing game concepts and design. Look for the Tigers to have plenty of tricks ready for defenses that try to stack the box vs what will likely still be a run-orienated offense. 2. Introducing the slotback. The passing game hasn't been the only part of the offense undergoing a retooling this offseason. As we got to see vs Maryland, Delmas looks to be defining a new role in the Auburn offense: slotback. Perhaps stolen wholesale from rival and friend @DangerZoneh and the Horned Frogs' utilization of Griffin Mchanna this past season, the Tigers will utilize Delmas as a WR-HB hybrid in 2024. " I'm the most dangerous man in cleats," boasted the Citrus Bowl MVP in his post-game interview. Delmas saw 12 touches--8 carries and 4 catches--for 98 yards and two touchdowns on the day. "It was something I wanted to install the moment I saw it, but we had to wait until the bowl practices." Coach Rome said in a radio interview over the winter. The true freshman was Auburn's leading receiver last season with 803 yards and 8 touchdowns. Delmas saw 66 touches in 2023. If the bowl game is any indication, Delmas should easily double that in 2024. 3. Defense wins championships. Of the 12 (11 + nickel) defensive starters, Auburn will regressed at one position: WDE. This was a young unit last year that only lost 3 starters, but was able to improve or reload in the secondary. They are loaded to the gills with talent. The unit managed 19.3ppga, posted 3 games with single digit points allowed (including a shutout), and only gave up 30+ twice. All the eyes and hype on this team will be about the backfield. But the real strength of 2024 will be the defense. And there are only two seniors projected to start.

    As a Pittsburgh man I am extremely excited to coach both of my hometown teams, I had never believed that this was a possibility but when the opportunity came I could not pass it up. I am very excited to start working with the @StorMy and @joedchi before this years draft and working to get the Steelers into ship shape and playoff caliber team. Thank you!

    PHOENIX — @Time has agreed to become Scout of the Arizona Cardinals. We are excited to say that we have achieved some success now, even though our sources say it doesn’t correlate. We refuse to believe them. The ChirpyBird epidemic in Arizona surpassed a grim milestone on Sunday with a fan toll that exceeds that of the SARVER outbreak 19 years ago — but a glimmer of hope emerged with the news that World Health Organization experts might soon be in the county to help stanch the crisis. The outbreak has converted at least 908 people in Maricopa County in the month since the first fan was reported in January in Glendale, the city where the novel Chirp emerged in December, apparently in a wholesale football market. Two people have converted outside Arizona. Buying tickets at a Cardinals ticket office through a window, a precaution taken to combat the Chirp. The SARVER crisis, which began in southern Phoenix in similar circumstances in 2004, ultimately converted 774 people worldwide over the course of several months. The number of new fans reported over the previous 24 hours — 97 — was the highest in Arizona in a single day so far, according to figures announced Sunday by the country’s health commission. The number of fans over all in Arizona now far exceeds that of SARVERs, rising above 40,100, compared with 8,000. @cultur3 and @Time are available for comment.

    That's a series that's going to analyse the Sun Belt's team depth chart, based on the roster for the 2024 season. On the second post of the series, we're going to analyse the Arkansas State Red Wolves Disclaimer: The depth chart was made based on the formula used to verify the team’s overall (skill + potential/2), unless, the player was already starting last season, then, I let the player as the starter. In case of a tie, I placed the highest potential player as the starter. In order to determine if the team uses a 3-4 or 4-3 defense, I compared the second DT to the second ILB. Which one graded higher determined the scheme used. 1.

High Point The Red Wolves lose only 2 players to graduation. That means that the WRs that shined last season return, the OL looks improved, by the insertion of Bryce Burleson and Manuel Gonzalez is also going to help them. On the defense they return David Bullock, a player that's going to play on NFLHC next season, and Malachi McCain, the best player of the Red Wolves' 2022 recruiting class, enter the rotation. 5. Low Point This section could be just 3 words: Eugene Salas graduated. I don't think this point can be emphasized enough. Even though this team lacks talent, even for the Sun Belt conference, Eugene Salas was, easily, the best player of the conference on the last 3 seasons, and, was able to put impressive numbers last season (top 5 passing yards on CFBHC). The lack of talent around him was never a problem for this team, but, losing him, and starting Puckett, a 3.0/3.0 QB, means a lot. 6. Overall Like I said on the topic 5, losing Eugene Salas is the worst loss any Sun Belt team is going to suffer this season. Besides that, they also lose their starting NT from last season, and, also, don't replace him well enough. I don't think this team is going to have a lot of wins next season. This team is rebuilding now, and they gotta recruit better in order to go back to the wins Salas provided them.

    Falcons Tackle the Manitou Springs Incline USAFA, Colo. - After a hard pre-season (1st Quarter philosophy) season, the Air Force Falcons football team is continuing to travel in an upward direction. This time, it's running up the intimidating "Incline", a famous Colorado Springs landmark that attracts health enthusiasts and Olympic athletes alike from all over the world. The Incline is a popular training location for the Air Force football team, as they climb the daunting 2,610 steps, seemingly straight up, every year. Junior running back Bobby Crews holds the record among current team members for ascending the Incline with a time of 24:15 this year. That's not quite as fast as the unofficial record held by triathlete Mark Fretta, who ascended the Incline in 16:42 on his first of four trips to the top that day, not to mention with a broken collar bone from a bike crash earlier. The Incline consists of the remains of an old cog train railway that once gave tourists a great view of Pikes Peak. Now with the train gone, the remaining railroad ties provide a great avenue up the side of the mountain, traversed by foot. The 8,600-foot high Incline has often been referred to as a "Stair-Stepper on steroids."

    [2024] MAC East Draft Outlook

    In this article, I'll look at all the players entering the Draft from the MAC East and provide a brief draft outlook and predict where they'll be drafted. WR Dontae Hicks-Lundy 6-3 167 R Ohio [Speed] [-3] [#] 71 Position Ranking: 23 Speed WR Ranking: 9 Hicks-Lundy transferred to Ohio from Lakeland Community College. He was slotted as the #2 WR behind Jordan Barnes, and had some production taken away from breakout Freshman TE Miles Hooker. He finished the year with 693 Yards with 11 Touchdowns and 6 Drops. A Drop Rate of over 8% will not impress Scouts, as guys like Nicholas Murphy and Jayson Geary should be available at the same time. I think Hicks-Lundy is a 2 year Practice Squad guy (and only rosterable if lots of injuries occur) before he's able to be on the Active Roster. Late 6th Round seems to be the right place for him. OG Drew Platt 6-1 289 R Ohio [Pass Blocking] [0] 77 Position Ranking: 14 Pass Blocking Guard Ranking: 7 A teammate of Hicks-Lundy, Platt was a multi-year starter for the Bobcats. He helped lead the Bobcats OL to a 4.03 Rating, good for 4th best in the Conference. He's also on the shorter side for a Guard, as you tend to see these guys go closer to the 6'3-6'5 range. However, he was a 4.0/4.0, and those highly rated 4.0s get drafted ahead of other guys in their ratings. Early 3rd could be his calling. DT Olivier Ponder 6-5 281 R Akron [2-Gap] [-1] 81 Position Ranking: 4 2-Gap DT Ranking: 3 Ponder was a multi-year starter for the Zips, but you wouldn't know that from the statbooks. He has recorded 0 Statsheets in the last two seasons. Perhaps he just wasn't a fit in the defense, or perhaps his role was a space eater who allowed those around him to feast. Either way, unless he has a strong combine and pro day, I don't see him sniffing the first round. I can see him falling all the way to the Mid 2nd. DT Jeremiah Clarke 6-5 276 R Akron [1-Gap] [-1/C] [++] 79 Position Ranking: 7 1-Gap DT Ranking: 2 Ponder's teammate, Clarke was actually able to make a noticeable impact in the game. He racked up 22 Tackles with 6 TFL and 2 Sacks this year. Not world-beater numbers, but not terrible. What really sinks Clarke are his rating and injury concerns. A 5.0 rated 79 Overall is a big red flag for most Front Offices, and he'd already drop on most team's boards because of that. Then add in his injury concerns, and teams may start taking him off of their board. One serious injury as a rookie could lead to his retirement. I can't see him going any sooner than Mid 3rd. If he stays healthy, he could be a steal then. DT Aaden Prince 6-3 296 R Ohio [2-Gap] [0] 68 Position Ranking: 19 2-Gap DT Ranking: 12 Prince is a one year starter for the Bobcats, who didn't really make the most of his chances. He finished with 8 Tackles, 2 TFL, and a Sack. For a guy who had so little opportunity in his collegiate career, scouts would have wanted to see more out of him. He's got the size you want from a guy in his position, but, does he have the talent. Mid 7th feels like the right spot for him. ILB Raymond McCain 6-0 222 R Buffalo [Mike] [0] 68 Positional Ranking: 29 Mike LB Ranking: 14 McCain has patrolled the middle of the field for the Bulls defense for a couple years now, and has been productive doing it. Notching 38 Tackles and 2 TFL as a Senior, and 36 Tackles with 6 TFL as a Junior. He has good, not great, vision. He lacks the speed to keep up with most TEs in the Pros, and at 6'0, is at a disadvantage in coverage. UDFA will be the place to get McCain if you want his services. OLB Alexander Moffett 6-2 224 R Buffalo [Coverage] [+1/C] [+] 76 Positional Ranking: 10 Coverage LB Ranking: 2 I've already written a more in depth piece on Moffett's Draft Outlook. One thing I didn't mention are his injury concerns, they aren't as much of a problem as Clarke's is. But, that's still a major concern NFLHC Front Office. Early 3rd is still the place to find him. CB Ousmane King 5-10 189 R Ohio [Zone Coverage] [+2] 77 Positional Ranking: 11 Zone CB Ranking: 5 King is another multi-year starter for the Bobcats (man they lose a lot to this draft). He was the #2 as a Junior to Senior Shawn Tillman and recorded no stats. He got the opportunity to be the #1 this year and picked off 3 Passes and Deflected another. Interceptions aren't the end-all be-all for Corners, and if he wows at the Combine and Pro Day, we could be talking about him in the 2nd Round. As it stand, Mid 3rd feels right for King. I think he can play Special Teams and slot in as your Nickel guy year one. P Ivan Gonzales 5-10 174 R Miami (OH) [Accuracy] [0] 74 Positional Ranking: 9 Accuracy P Ranking: 6 Gonzales averaged 40.77 Yards Per Punt this year, good for 2nd in the conference. With how poor the Redhawk offense was, he punted nearly 90 times on the year, really cementing how good his average was over that amount of work. But, Punters are not high in demand during the draft. If you want Gonzales, pick him up as a UDFA. P Abraham Burroughs 5-9 191 R Akron [Power] [0] 67 Positional Ranking: 17 Power P Ranking: 8 Burroughs averaged 39.49 Yards Per Punt, good for 4th in the MAC. He punted the ball around 65 times this year. He didn't do a good enough job at directing the punts to help avoid returns. He will not get drafted, pick him up as a UDFA.

    Welcome to the Cyclones Roster outlook for this next season, The preseason polls have predicted Iowa State to be a middle of the road team despite losing only 2 seniors to the draft this offseason. The Cyclones have taken note of this change and brought in some talent this offeason to offset those problems left by last year. These potential changes to the Iowa State Roster will be analyzed and get to meet the new starters and who is expected to redshirt this next season. First let us introduce the Quarterback position Quarterbacks +1.0 Change Starter - QB Vaughn Sheppard 6-5 196 Sr York (York NE) 4.5 of 4.5 [Pocket] The Cyclones are fortunate enough to keep 3 year starter Vaughn Sheppard this next season, he has progressed from a 3.5 to a 4.5 and will see an increased roll this year compared to last year. Backup QB Joel Kelly 6-1 228 (Fr) Wilcox County (Rochelle GA) 2.0 of 3.0 [Hybrid] QB Josh Humphries 6-5 235 Jr Grady (Atlanta GA) 2.5 of 2.5 [Hybrid] Although Iowa State Has brought in a newcomer to redshirt in Miles Horton. Joel Kelly took a year off to study under Sheppard and he is expected to be battling it out for the second string position with him and Josh Humpries Redshirt QB Miles Horton 6-0 216 Fr Grundy Center (Grundy Center IA) 1.0 of 4.5 [Hybrid]ATH Donte Taylor 6-0 194 Fr Durant (Durant IA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Hybrid] These two are expected to redshirt and take time to develop their skills in this time during the season. Donte Taylor will be a useful tool and redshirting him will allow more freedom in his athletic abilities later on Runningbacks +1.0 Change Starter RB Kofi McCullough 5-9 177 (Sr) Lincoln (Sioux Falls SD) 5.0 of 5.0 [Speed]RB Brian Wilkerson 5-10 184 Jr Arsenal Tech (Indianapolis IN) 2.5 of 2.5 [Speed] Kofi showed great improvement this last season and he is expected to be a tool in this high octane offense as he is returning for his final and best season yet. Wilkerson has not yet seen a carry in his 3 years playing but he was 3rd string last year and has improve 1.0 points duirng this offeason. BackupRB Luca Stewart 6-1 213 (Fr) Liberal (Liberal MO) 1.5 of 3.0 [Power]RB Jonah Pickering 5-7 177 Fr Van Alstyne (Van Alstyne TX) 1.0 of 3.5 [Speed] RedshirtRB Jordan Jackson 5-7 198 Fr Century (Rochester MN) 1.0 of 4.0 [Power] Jackson will be the player after McCullough graduates to carry this team on the ground, he is the first Power back to start for Iowa State and he is build like a bowling ball. Departures RB Bryce McFadden 5-6 215 Sr Grundy Center (Grundy Center IA) 2.5 of 2.5 [Power] Fullback +.5 Change Starter FB Alex Coffey 6-0 218 Fr Blair Oaks (Jefferson City MO) 2.0 of 4.0 [Pass Blocking] this is Alex's First start and he will be an improvement from last years FB of Quincy Ward. Although Ward did progress to become a 2.5 there is more ceiling for talent with Coffey to help out Kofi in the backfield. Expect to see more Coffey in your life. Backup FB Illanipi Thompson 6-1 208 So Ainsworth (Ainsworth NE) 2.0 of 2.5 [Pass Blocking]FB Quincy Ward 5-10 232 So Kahuku (Kahuku HI) 2.5 of 2.5 [Run Blocking] Receivers Starter WR Luka Snell 5-11 165 (Jr) North Delta (Batesville MS) 4.0 of 4.0 [Speed] WR Nat Donaldson-Douglas 5-9 157 (Sr) Kuemper Catholic (Carroll IA) 3.5 of 3.5 [Speed] WR Ezekiel Renteria 6-5 221 Sr Northeast (Macon GA) 3.5 of 3.5 [Target] WR Troy Spears 6-0 231 (Jr) Riverside (Oakland IA) 3.5 of 3.5 [Target] Snell played like a bat out of hell in 2023, Coach Minnow told him to train hard during the offseason and it paid off, Snell saw an increase of .5 potential and a +1.0 progression in his ability. The Junior is looking to tear up the field this season and is going to be a forefront of this Cyclone offense. Backup WR Ben Shearer 6-4 164 (Jr) Pope (Marietta GA) 3.0 of 3.0 [Speed] WR Gerald Rouse 6-2 156 Sr Eden Prairie (Eden Prairie MN) 2.5 of 2.5 [Speed] WR Adam Crowe 6-3 228 Jr Northfield (Northfield MN) 2.5 of 2.5 [Target] WR Omar Easter 6-3 218 (So) Durant (Durant IA) 2.0 of 2.5 [Target] Redshirt WR Jerricho Dodd 6-0 199 Fr Ames (Ames, IA) 1.0 of 5.0 [Speed] Dodd will join the other newcomers with high potential to redshirt this year, due to the progression that Snell faced and to grow his raw ability into a future NFLHC prosepect and to learn under the future QB in Horton is what Minnow wants. Depatures WR Leonardo Gilbert 6-4 164 Sr Southeast Warren (Liberty Center IA) 3.0 of 3.0 [Speed] Gilbert was a part of the Cyclone offense last season, he helped take pressure of Kofi, and although he has no pro potential he will always be a Cyclone Tight Ends Starter ATH Demetrius Clay 6-0 235 (Jr) Columbus Community (IA) 5.0 of 5.0 [Blocking] TE Antonio Hobson 6-3 244 (So) Taylor County (Perry FL) 3.0 of 3.0 [Blocking] Position Battle TE Jamir Payton 6-2 227 (Jr) Chatfield (Chatfield MN) 3.0 of 3.0 [Blocking] TE Ibrahima Riley 6-6 198 (So) Hillsborough (Tampa FL) 3.0 of 3.0 [Receiving] Honestly any of these players can be the backup. Currently it is up in the air and they will provide a vital role in case the two way athlete stays healthy. Offensive Line Starters Offensive Tackles (Overall A hit in talent) OT Arthur Stout 6-2 284 Jr Howard Community College (Columbia MD) 4.0 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking] The newcomer who I stole from his primary choice of Liberty. He will help immensely with the departure of 5.0 D'Neal Norris this last season and 3.5 Brady Meek. OT Tavita Faapo 6-7 302 (Jr) Rising Star (Rising Star TX) 3.0 of 3.0 [Run Blocking] Backup OT Bart Erwin 6-6 309 Fr Jackson (Masillon OH) 1.5 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] OT Arthur Snell 6-2 268 (Fr) Benilde-St. Margaret's (MN) 2.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] OT Jesse Cowan 6-6 261 Sr Pine Island (Pine Island MN) 2.5 of 2.5 [Run Blocking] Redshirt OT Jaden Stump 6-5 324 Fr Long Beach Polytechnic ( CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] Departures OT D'Neal Norris 6-4 272 (Sr) Norton Community (Norton, KS) 5.0 of 5.0 [Run Blocking] OT Brady Meek 6-3 272 Sr Columbus Community (IA) 3.5 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] These two will be missed as I am taking a hit overall for a little bit until people can progress. Offensive Guards STRONGER THAN EVER Starters OG Dillon Dooley 6-6 256 So Dowling Catholic (Des Moines IA) 3.5 of 5.0 [Run Blocking] OG Declan Burgess 6-7 305 Jr Auburndale (Auburndale WI) 3.0 of 4.0 [Pass Blocking] Backup OG Aneterea Mata'afa 6-7 261 (So) Big Lake (Big Lake MN) 3.0 of 3.0 [Run Blocking] OG Gregory Bock 6-2 313 Sr Benson Christian (Benson MN) 2.5 of 2.5 [Pass Blocking]OG Sean Sizemore 6-4 286 (Jr) Stockton (Stockton MO) 2.5 of 2.5 [Pass Blocking]OG Nick Stearns 6-3 293 Sr Ritenour (Overland MO) 2.5 of 2.5 [Run Blocking] Redshirt OG Mario Allred 6-7 295 Jr Hot Springs (Hot Springs SD) 3.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] Just doing this to even out the Big Junior class currently Departures OG Steven Juarez 6-7 263 Sr Southeast Warren (Liberty Center IA) 2.0 of 2.0 [Pass Blocking] Center Starter C Martin McRae 6-1 264 (Jr) Clarke Community (Osceola IA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Run Blocking] Backup C Ali McAfee 6-1 271 Fr Alma (Alma WI) 1.0 of 3.0 [Run Blocking] Departures C Matteo Marsh 6-1 281 Sr Douglas (Box Elder SD) 2.0 of 2.0 [Pass Blocking] Overall I improved this season with the centers, my one weak point is with my Tackles. but my Center situation is good.

    #Firedacder I'd like to thank jacobs and Slinky for the opportunity they've presented to work with one of the consistently best run orgs in NFLHC. I'm very excited for this opportunity. I would also like to applaud jacobs and Slinky on their brilliant maneuver to get someone to take over the grunt work of the GM who they know will still give them equal voice in everything. Well done guys. In all seriousness, this is a great opportunity and I'm very excited to continue working in this org and with this roster. I'd also like to formally say that our first step forward is to retain the talent that got our franchise its first championship, including quarterback Rob LeCount, who may not be the flashiest QB in the NFL, but he's damn solid and if you disagree you can LeCount them rings. I'm certainly open to any questions and I'm sure jacobs and Slinky are too.

    The 2023 NFLHC season is officially over. One to forget for our Browns? Quite possibly. But don't be too worried fellow Dawgs... the future is bright, the future is Orange. With that said, Kirby, our beloved Owner (and awfully unsatisfactory previous Head Coach) today announced that the Browns are seeking a new Head Scout, to act as a complimentary piece to the threesome currently in office. The Head Scout will initially be tasked with assisting General Manager @brightfalls in the off-season and build up to the Draft, by gathering important information on prospects of interest and providing valuable data. With the #1 pick, and all of our further picks in tact, it is important that we, as a franchise, take full advantage of this position and leave no stone unturned. Following the off-season and as we move into the regular season, our new Head Scout will then be expected to contribute by gathering information on our opponents on a week to week basis for Head Coach @Suffocation to review prior to game planning. Therefore having, or being willing to develop a keen knowledge of the NFLHC players and teams is essential. This is a great opportunity for someone to get a foot into the NFLHC. The Browns are urging anyone that believes they have what it takes to message Owner @Kirby with their statement of intent. #DAWGPOUND

    That's a series that's going to analyse the Sun Belt's team depth chart, based on the roster for the 2024 season. On the third post of the series, we're going to analyse the reigning Sun Belt East Champions, the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers Disclaimer: The depth chart was made based on the formula used to verify the team’s overall (skill + potential/2), unless, the player was already starting last season, then, I let the player as the starter. In case of a tie, I placed the highest potential player as the starter. In order to determine if the team uses a 3-4 or 4-3 defense, I compared the second DT to the second ILB. Which one graded higher determined the scheme used. 1.

High Point Coastal Carolina is losing a lot of production for graduation. The starting QB, their pro potential DT and SS, as well as their leading receiver. Why am I talking about this on the high point? Because it surely doesn't feel like they are going to miss these players. On the DT position, Shane Gallegos is going to get replaced by Sean McAfee, a 3.5/3.5 player. Of course he's not going to play at the same level of Gallegos, but, he's not going to be a total failure. Shaquille Jones is replaced by a Redshirt Freshman with almost the same skill level. The secondary, even though is losing a 4.0/4.5 player, actually improved due the JuCo recruiting and transfers. On the same line, Tyshaun Carter is surely going to lead the Sun Belt in a few years, paired with Travis Spiller on the defense. All of this is to say that the Chanticleers are doing an incredible job recruiting, and, even though they are losing some starters, none of them looks capable of hurting them, except... 5. Low Point The losing of Roger Reese. Reese had the 2nd highest QB Rating in the Sun Belt, the 3rd most passing yards and passing TDs. Replacing this kind of production from the QB is never easy. I placed Jayden McNair as the starting QB, but, the Chanticleers have another option: Zion Stewart (QB Zion Stewart 6-0 190 (Fr) White Knoll (Lexington SC) 2.5 of 3.5 [Pocket]). Either way, it's not going to be easy to replace Reese's production, on a team that relied so much on the passing attach. 6. Overall If Coastal Carolina can figure out their QB early in the season, I can see they going on to win the Sun Belt East again. Their OL does not look incredible, but is not awful either. Their skill positions remain almost the same, and the defense, looks even better. The key is their QB. If they are late on who should start, and the scheme he prefer, this might open the door for other Sun Belt East teams.

    [2024] MAC West Roster Previews

    Like last season, this is totally original to the MAC and we certainly did not steal it from anyone else. JUCO in Red True Freshman in Green New Starters Who Were on the Team in 2023 Noted with Asterisk Only Eastern Michigan is not progressed, so for them, we'll assume +1.0 Progression across the board. Western Michigan Broncos - @Pskeate Offense QB Gabe Baker 5-10 227 (So) Waterford Mott (Waterford MI) 3.5 of 5.0 [Pocket]* RB Jamel Garrett 6-1 206 (Fr) Clarkston (Clarkston MI) 2.5 of 5.0 [Speed]* FB Ian Jewell 5-11 225 Jr Port Charlotte (Port Charlotte FL) 3.5 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] WR Viliamu Vainu'upo 6-1 230 (So) Hillcrest Christian (Jackson MS) 3.0 of 4.0 [Target] WR Mason Eckert 6-3 169 Fr Arizona Lutheran Academy ( AZ) 2.5 of 5.0 [Speed] TE William Griggs 6-3 199 (So) Mt. Pleasant (Mt. Pleasant MI) 3.0 of 5.0 [Receiving] OT Jesse Tackett 6-1 303 Jr Eastern Oklahoma State College (Wilburton OK) 4.0 of 5.0 [Run Blocking] OG Mason Helm 6-4 316 Sr North Forsyth (Cumming GA) 3.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking]* C Parker Bledsoe 6-1 292 (Fr) Pacelli (Stevens Point WI) 2.5 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking]* OG Jesse Madsen 6-4 267 (So) Stephenson (Stone Mountain GA) 2.5 of 3.5 [Run Blocking]* OT Nathan Dozier 6-1 303 (Jr) Long Beach Polytechnic (CA) 3.5 of 3.5 [Run Blocking]* Defense DE Kayden Soriano 6-6 271 (Jr) Glen Lake (Maple City MI) 4.5 of 4.5 [Blitz] DT Leonard Landrum 6-0 301 (So) Shiner (Shiner TX) 4.0 of 4.0 [2-Gap] DT Kevin Pope 6-5 289 (Sr) Blissfield (Blissfield MI) 3.5 of 3.5 [2-Gap] DE Victor Roberson 6-5 262 (Sr) Bentley (Burton MI) 3.5 of 3.5 [Blitz] OLB Christian Reese 6-0 219 Sr Port St. Lucie (Port St. Lucie FL) 5.0 of 5.0 [Coverage] ILB Chase Rhoads 6-2 233 (Jr) Flushing (Flushing MI) 3.5 of 3.5 [Mike]* ATH Reshad Davenport 5-11 230 (Fr) Brandywine (Niles MI) 2.0 of 5.0 [Blitz]* CB Damani Powell 5-10 170 (So) Houghton (Houghton MI) 4.0 of 4.5 [Man Coverage] CB Miles Bradford 5-9 171 Sr Pacelli (Stevens Point WI) 4.0 of 4.0 [Man Coverage] FS Julius Reese 6-1 198 Jr Adams Central (Monroe IN) 4.0 of 5.0 [Zone Coverage] SS Lardarius McAfee 6-2 187 (Sr) Owendale Gagetown (Owendale MI) 4.0 of 4.0 [Zone Coverage] Special Teams K Jude Stevens 5-10 166 Jr Bellevue (Bellevue MI) 2.0 of 3.5 [Accuracy]* P Tony Post 6-0 184 Sr Holy Cross (River Grove IL) 3.5 of 3.5 [Accuracy] The backfield will be a whole new look for the Broncos this year. With Jackson and Madison gone, WMU will turn to Baker and Garrett. While they will end up being very good, how good will they be in year one? Mason Eckert will certainly be of assistance, the true Freshman standout WR from Arizona should be in for a great season. Jesse Tackett was a much needed addition in JUCO as the Broncos OL lost Kualii Umaga, Cameron Caldwell, and Avery Curley. He will bring much needed stability. Mason The rest of the Line is brand new as well, and that is a point of concern for this coaching staff. Thankfully, the defense is much more stable as they return 9 starters. Kayden Soriano has been DPOTY for two years in a row in the MAC. Chase Rhoads fills in for the graduated David Goresh, and may be better suited for the role than Goresh. RS FR Reshad Davenport may not fit the scheme of the rest of the defense, but he's a freak athlete and you have to get him on the field. The Broncos had the best secondary in 2023, and they return all 4 starters. Coach pskeate should be comfortable with his defense as it currently sits. Toledo Rockets - @Megman Offense QB Mario Pierre 6-1 235 Jr Morgan Park (Chicago IL) 4.0 of 4.5 [Scrambling] RB Alvin Hines 6-0 190 Jr Troy (Troy OH) 3.5 of 4.0 [Speed] FB Jaylen Means 5-9 218 Jr Keystone (La Grange OH) 3.0 of 4.0 [Run Blocking]* WR Prince Malone 6-3 221 (Sr) Padua Franciscan (Parma OH) 4.5 of 4.5 [Target] WR Elias Schwartz 6-2 201 (Sr) Hudson (Hudson OH) 3.5 of 3.5 [Target] TE Charles Ott 6-1 224 Jr Holland Christian (Holland MI) 3.0 of 3.0 [Blocking]* OT Isaac Decker 6-3 286 Sr Central Community (Breese IL) 5.0 of 5.0 [Run Blocking] OG Vincent McCabe 6-5 287 (Sr) Bath (Lima OH) 5.0 of 5.0 [Run Blocking] C Vic Troutman 6-1 288 (Sr) Wauseon (Wauseon OH) 5.0 of 5.0 [Pass Blocking] OG Josiah Vargas 6-4 302 So Roxana (Roxana IL) 2.5 of 2.5 [Pass Blocking]* OT Amir Qualls 6-1 290 (Jr) Greenville (Greenville GA) 3.0 of 3.0 [Run Blocking] Defense DE Wardell Jean-Georges 6-5 255 So Brookside (Sheffield OH) 3.5 of 4.5 [Contain] DT Marc Mark 6-2 316 (Sr) Deer Park (Cincinnati OH) 3.5 of 3.5 [1-Gap]* DT Wendell Yarbrough 6-5 291 So Goshen (Goshen OH) 3.5 of 3.5 [1-Gap] DE Evan Samuels 6-3 258 Sr Posen (Posen MI) 2.5 of 2.5 [Contain] OLB Blake Gauthier 6-2 229 Jr Eastmoor Academy (Columbus OH) 3.5 of 5.0 [Blitz] ILB Robert Riggins 6-2 256 (Sr) Triway (Wooster OH) 3.5 of 3.5 [Mike]* OLB Jonas Hoyt 6-1 242 (Fr) St. Philip Catholic Central (MI) 2.0 of 3.0 [Blitz]* CB DeVante Gilliam 5-11 169 Jr Brookside (Sheffield OH) 3.0 of 4.0 [Man Coverage]* CB Jerraud Bynum 6-2 183 (Sr) Wayne Trace (Haviland OH) 3.5 of 3.5 [Zone Coverage] FS Geno McMillan 5-10 194 (Fr) Jackson (Masillon OH) 2.5 of 2.5 [Zone Coverage]* SS Xavier Richmond 5-10 190 Sr Belpre (Belpre OH) 2.5 of 2.5 [Man Coverage]* Special Teams K Larry Prater 5-9 195 (Fr) Apalachicola (Apalachicola FL) 2.0 of 2.5 [Power]* P Victor Mcclure 5-11 156 Fr Suncoast (Riviera Beach FL) 2.0 of 3.0 [Accuracy]* Well, there are certainly some holes to ponder on this team. I slotted Pierre and Hines in at starter in the backfield just due to experience. I would not be that surprised or worried if Coach Megman turned to Mike Barnett and Derrick Guyton instead. The Rockets getting Prince Malone to stay for one more year was huge. They need all the help they can get out wide. The entire OL returns except for Keith Holbrook who's gone to the Pros. And the right side of that line is a huge weak spot for them. With Damian Larkin gone, this team has to turn to Marc Mark and Wendell Yarbrough to fill in. Mark started at RE last season, but I felt it more important to slot him at DT, so he's still technically a new starter. Losing Dennis Jarrett will be huge for this team, as is the loss of Ryan Carr. All of Deathcpo's hard work in recruiting is leaving. The holes he couldn't fill at the end have become apparent. Safety is a huge area of concern as they don't have anyone better than a 2.5/2.5 at either position. Special Teams has been a strength in the past for the Rockets, but is now a weakness. This team still has talent, but they'll have to lean on their offense hard to carry them to 6 Wins.

Conant (Hoffman Estates IL) 3.5 of 3.5 [Accuracy] Welp, this team is in trouble. They went 2-10 last year, and lost 5 guys to the Draft. The recruiting hasn't been there for the Huskies, and that shows with this projected starting lineup. They don't have a FB on roster, which isn't really a problem since they wouldn't use him anyways. The Brody Hill era starts in 2024, and Huskies fans have to hope he protects the ball better than Emmett Mast. Nathan Monroe replaces Khalil Eubanks, which shouldn't have much impact as he'll likely only touch the ball a dozen times a game. Graham Haines moves into the starting role after playing Slot primarily last year. He should be a nice addition to the starting lineup. TE Dowell replaces Jaden Payton (who is going pro), and will likely have a much bigger impact in the offense. The lose LT Jermon McCullough and C Cooper O'Neill to the Draft, and replace them with 3.0s. Yikes. Faresa Lealofi returns, but that's the only positive I can take from this OL. The defense is a mess. They have no pro potential guys on the roster and only a couple 3.5s. They return only 1 Starter from a 2023 team that allowed over 30 points. Oliver McNeal and Antonio Weeks leaving is huge. I don't know how this defense gets any stops. Coach 13AD will have to focus on recruiting, as this year will likely be repeat of 2023.

QB Robert Frazier graduates, and in steps Jacob Gardner. Gardner is much more mobile than Frazier was, so maybe the Eagles can take advantage of that. The best RB in the conference returns, and Tyler Pearson is That Dude. You do not mess with him. The International guys were really wasted last year, as they were all buried on the Depth Chart, but most will get plenty of playing time this year. They have a trio of 4.0s at WR that could all get playing time, which they really needed. Johnny Lake comes back at TE which is a bonus. The Right side of the Line is all new, and they weren't good last year. RT Daniel Callahan should be a building block however. TRD comes back to wreak havoc, and is joined by Obasie Ulechi in the middle. Ulechi takes over for Erik Stoner, who was all Conferend 2nd Team. I envision the Eagles moving to a 3-4, which opens ups room for Rodrigo Salcedo-Arevalo to join the starting lineup. David Jefferson was the 4th guy last year, but should be the #1 guy at Corner this year. It's time for A.J. Montgomery to get the nod at K, the Eagles will need him more than ever this year.

The Senior is looking to give the Scouts another taste of what he can do. God help us all. Huff returns, and the Chips have to hope he gets better. He needs to take the next step, and if he does, God help us all. I thought about slotting DaeSean Daniels in at WR, but Dontae Peppers really thrives as the #2. So, I'm thinking the Chips either RS Daniels, or throw him in the Slot. The Left Side of the Line is all new (the Chips started Hurley at LT last year, which may make sense for them to do again). And that's concerning, but they still have Bennett and Hurley to lean on for now. Barber and Bustos join the starting DL, and I think this may be the 2nd best DL in the conference behind WMU now. Lloyd goes back to his comfortable spot at OLB, and is joined by James Burke and Javon McCoy. I started Burke over Norriega just because he's a Mike. Isaiah Jenkins Jr coming into this defense is huge. The D was the weakness of this team, and adding a stud at Corner will pay dividends soon. I struggled with CB2, in the end I went with Edmonds over Mathis. Having the luxury of putting a guy as good as Mathis in the Nickel spot must be nice. Last year's starting FS, Filip Decker, is still with the team, but I started Patterson instead to match the play style of Louis Dobbins. I think this team is in great shape to repeat in the West.

Fair (Little Rock AR) 3.0 of 3.0 [Accuracy] I really like this team, it's not perfect, but it's so much better than when I took over in 2021. Parker returns, and we really need him to be more effective this year. Cut back on the turnovers, and get the ball in the endzone more. Damani Laws comes back, and we will ride him to another 1,500+ Yard season. We bring in Burroughs to lock down the left side of the Line, and we needed him badly. Elisara Mataafa is the lone returning starting OL, which is a concern for me. But, the rest of the OL is solid. This might be the best line I've had yet. The DL remains the same, and I like that stability. Brantley and Wilkins have a ton of heavy lifting to do in the 2nd Level. Jon Carpenter is gone, and in steps Jonah Sands. Mike LB is a big weakness for me this year. The Corners return, and again, love the stability. Only change in the secondary is Alex Causey at SS taking over for DeAndre Simms. All-in-all, I think this team can compete for the West.

Portland State Vikings, Middle Tennessee (or anywhere of high need) 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. I'm 29 years old and I work in making sure various electronic devices won't give you cancer. I currently live in Southern Indiana but grew up in Illinois. I coached CMU for a couple of seasons but resigned when life got too busy. Since then I've poked in every once in a while to see how my old team was doing and otherwise. It's become habit enough in recent weeks that I've figured it might be time to just fully rejoin. 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? That is unfortunately still a grey area for me. I left the site because I was studying for an exam that would open up quite a few doors for my career, and I finally found out this week that I passed! So I have some more free time finally. That being said, since I left the site, my job has still been quite busy. I believe I can knock out the minimum requirements of running a team no problem, but I'm unsure if I can be super involved in creating media pieces, it would be sporadic spur of the moment things or helping out other conference members in coach interviews and things like that. Hence why I'm selecting an FCS team. If one of the FBS conferences would be ok with what I can guarantee and that really want to fill a spot, feel free to send me a PM and we can talk about it. 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. It's never been a problem. You can learn something from every loss. 8.

    I feel like Va Tech and Arizona are the top 2s and in discussion for a 1. I also think Va Tech should be a 1 over Duke right now, holding a better record and just beat them. I'd also like to see Loyola, Marquette, and Arizona in the same region. Good luck to offenses if that happens

    Pretty spot on for the Chippewas. I will likely start Mathis over Edmonds. He more than held his own as the #1 last year and led the MAC in interceptions. He’s at least earned the right to keep his starting spot to begin the season. My offensive line is the biggest concern. I lost 6 seniors total this off-season but 3 were starters on the offensive line. They’re being replaced with similar talent but let’s see how long it takes them to gel.

    ECU's 10th Season review.

    A Decade of Pirate Football: A Wild Rollercoaster Season Ends QB Kyler Wilson (So) 13 games, 314 of 489 for 3,820 yards. 32 TDs 9 Ints. 147.75 QBR, 294 YPG. A decade of Pirate football came to an end this season in heartbreaking fashion. Their season came to an end in a shootout with a Minnesota Team that had underperformed this season. Offically ending the season 6-7(4-4), the Pirates went from Conference Champion hopefuls, to struggling to make a bowl game. The Rushing defense struggled early and often this season. Many times the Pirate defense allowed as much on the ground(sometimes even more) than they allowed through the air. Still, the Pirates continued to fight and managed a narrow win over UConn to ensure a Bowl game. WR Jacob Benson Sr 13 Games, 93 Receptions for 1313 yards. 14 Touchdowns, 4 drops. 14.12 YPC, 101 YPG The ECU offense to major step forwards in every area. Their Air Raid style offense, lead by redshirt So QB Kyler Wilson, saw the Pirates create several new school single season records. Throwing for over 3800 yards, Wilson also manage to break the single season touchdown record after coming up 1 short of tying it during his Freshman season. His 32 Touchdown passes is an improvement on his 28 last season. But it wasn't just more yard thrown, or more touchdown catches. Wilson improved his completion percentage. By almost TEN percent. He threw for 56% last season. This season he completed 64% of his passes. Throwing for almost 300 yards a game, Wilson made all of these improvements by technically throwing less. Even if it wasn't that much less. The Pirates however didn't just make great gains in their passing attack, Freshman Samuel Baldwin and So Miles Giordano helped establish a run game that was basically wasn't even in the game plan last season. The duo rushed for a combined 777 yards on the ground. While it doesn't sound like much(especially since the Pirates use to have some amazing rushing attacks), it was a signficant improvement over the previous season inwhich they had to throw every play. Given the passing attempts over the past two years were close, to see such an uptick in the production had to make the coaches feel better. The very dark spot on the season however are the games against SMU and WMU in which, both games combined, they only managed 13 yards. Games like that can't happen. No matter how good the opponents defense is, or how quickly you go down, 13 yards in two games is just not acceptable. The Pirates continue to beef up their O-Line and should see some improvement again in 2024. But given some of the problems this team has had in the run game over the last few seasons, Baldwin the 3rd has given that runningback room something to be excited about. We can not talk about this ECU offense and not mention the studs they had at the receiver position.Seniors Leon Burris and Jacob Benson ended the season with 11 and 14 touchdowns respectively. Benson had a monster season and ended with over 1300 yards receiving. His 101 YPG is a school record, as well as his 93 receptions. He was as reliable a receiver as you could have asked for. He won a Conference award for his effort as well and has already been reconized as one of the biggest WR names going into the draft. He potentionally could be a first round pick, the first in the schools history. While Burris didn't have the senior season he was hoping for, the senior is going out as one of the best stars in the schools history. Gavin Faulk's magical season last year over shadowed his own top performance, and had to watch his teammate this season do it again. However he shouldn't feel bad as he received a standing ovation following the game against UConn. The senior was given special honors that night in his final game at home for his efforts over the last four seasons. He is the only active player on the team who has started the last four seasons. He was Coach Weeze's first recruit(3 Star), and has broken or set just about every major receiving record for the school. Leon Burris has outplayed his value and truly was one of the AAC most underrated players. Leon Burris Career Stats: 2020-2023 50 Statsheets (2nd all time. QB Liam Carver 53), 248 Catches(1st) 3371 Yards(1st), 35 Touchdowns(1st), 67.4 YPG(1st with 14 or more games) He made a speech following the game with UConn and thanked Pirate nation for all their love and support over his four seasons with the team. Given his success, it is believed he will be the next memeber to be inducted in the Ring of Honor. OLB Richard Jack (So) 8 Statsheets, 50 Tackles, 10 TFL, 4 Sacks, 1 FF The Defense this season continued their struggles. Some of it was expected. They started two freshman on the interior line. Two freshman at linebacker. A freshman and a Sophomore with no experince at Corner, as well as another Sophomore without game experince at safety. That is a large part of the defense to have struggle with inexperince. The headcoach and the DC were both aware of this problem from the start and at multiple times this season tried to slow the game down. It hurt them more than it helped a few times. Tulsa for example took advantage of their conservative play and made them abandon their gameplan. For all their collective frustrations, individual perfromances give hope for what could be. Richard Jack(OLB) and Mario Redd(ILB) combined for 105 tackles, 12 TFL and 4 sacks. Oliver Hood(OLB) adds another 20 tackles for the Linebacker corp, hands down the most productive unit. Both of the Defensive ends seem to regress this season. Theo Guinn after a fantastic freshman season, stalled this year and didn't improve much. However, he did find a way to push himself into second all time in sacks. Aiden Daniels, who was pushed to the strong side of the defense, just could not find his grove and ended the season with 4 sacks. His 8 tackles this season also doesn't help his potential status next season as 4* James stone will be able to start fresh off his redshirt season. Some of the production issues also could be a direct result of having two freshman tackles start as opposed to the seniors they had last year. Last but not forgotten, Special teams. OVerall, the returned game sucked. Punt returns basically didn't happen for the Pirates. KR was better, but dropped off dramatically from last season as well. Perhaps that is a good thing and resulted from the team winning more games, but still you would have liked to see more from the unit. Brian McLane on the other hand, the 5 star Kicker could verywell be the next coming for Kicker U. McLane in his freshman season got very close to breaking the points record for kickers. His 87 points came off of 36 XP and 17 made fieldgoals. His made only 81% of his FG this season, however as a freshman, we should see that number increase and hopefully a better team will also see him in more managable ranges. It should be noted that he also tied the longest kick in school history at 50. There are questions at multiple positions this coming season, but coaches and fans alike are thrilled to have McLane, and hope he can continue his progression. It was a long season, full of great things, but too many disappointing outcomes occured for this coaching staff to be happy. They can and will have to do better as they move forward into 2024, and the start of a new decade of Pirate football.
