  1. Please use the following format for your 2020 Season wiki page, please go back and use this schedule format for previous season pages as well. Notice how the date is the week of the season, the time is TNF/FNF/Saturday Morning/Afternoon/Evening and there are location, stadium, opponent (and ranking if necessary) and whether it is a conference game or not. Please don't use any other schedule format.
  2. How do you prioritize receivers in your depth chart? Do you find success mixing in TEs? How about RBs? Do you ever play around with the Tight End depth chart and substitute in O-Line for your blocking TE (the 2nd TE)?
  3. You may have noticed the site theme has changed. This is not a permanent change - I'm simply stress testing this light design. After a few days I'll reopen the dark one and people will have a choice. If you guys think this light one is good the only thing I will be asking is to have someone constantly update the slider with CURRENT news. Would there be any interested people? (Requirement: you have to have been on the site for at least 1.5 years) Soluna
  4. I can fix this when I'm home
  5. Animal Abuse Jaguars look to rebound after mauling by Packers.
  6. What is your dream school to coach on here? Let's say every school was open, who would you want to take? Are you at your dream school already? Do you see yourself ever leaving it willingly?
  7. Recent polling conducted has found the following opinions of head coaches in their respective cities based on game planning and the teams performance relative to overall skill: Superb: Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers, San Francisco 49ers, Los Angeles Rams Solid: Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks Acceptable: Cleveland Browns, Tennessee Titans, Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals No Opinion: Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans, New England Patriots, Los Angeles Chargers, New York Giants Not Acceptable: Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Angry: Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints Should be Fired: Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins
  8. CFBHC v1.3b June 9th, 2017 Pre-Release v1.3.1.15 Notes: As usual thanks to the members who helped test this - there weren't many this time because I got this pumped out quickly with my new additional time. I appreciate the thoughts and input you guys have made in your private feedback forum threads. Just a heads up - version 1.4 will introduce a practice schedule system that will likely be added for 2021 after commissioners help beta test and may introduce prestige and firing for CFBHC and/or NFLHC depending on beta feedback. NFLHC * Added player happiness. Happiness is a sliding value from 0-100 that represents how content a player is with an organization. Happiness is not necessarily a reflection of only team success. Happiness is a hidden value but will result in a variety of visible events. * Added three new rejection reasons for players to refuse to sign a new or extension contract: Dislike of head coach or coaching style. Looking for contender team. Looking for free agent money. * Tied NFLHC events and happiness into contract situations. Players may express requests to draft certain positions via events, ask for certain offseason signings (including other specific players) or may express dissatisfaction with a head coach or coordinator. * Fixed a bug with progressions. * Fixed a bug with receving stat output. * Fixed a minor bug with stuck gameplan changes if not updated. * Fixed a minor bug with slant passes. CFBHC * Added Conference Media Accounts. Commissioners will receive the access information for an account associated with their conference and may share the account info at their discretion. Similar to the USA Today account this should be used for players of the week, official conference news, etc. and will expand and incorporate future roleplaying aspects in version 1.4. *Added un-positioned players to all future high school recruiting classes. These players will have no position (position listed will be NA) and no attribute (attribute listed will be [None]) and will be more heavily dependent on their size and weight for progression in their first two years. Just before beginning their junior year (either (Jr) or just Jr) they will be given a position and then progress with their normal position from then on. *Added true walk-on recruits. Teams with very low player counts may be restocked with somewhat random amounts of low skill recruits in the offseason that will have a position but no attribute (listed as [None]).
  9. "Which gameplan option do you feel like is the most misunderstood?" - Rome No idea to be honest. I think the primary offensive schemes aren't really fully understood by most people. Especially how to adjust them to fit the team you've built. It comes with experience though so people do eventually figure it out I think. Most everyone who has been here since at least the 2015 season is good in that regard or at least acceptable. "If time constraints forced you to downsize the simulations, would you rather only do NFLHC or CFBHC? Why?" - Rome Pretty tough actually. My quick response would have definitely been CFBHC when I built the site but I find that I'm usually more drawn to the NFL because of all the business decisions + draft outweighing the benefits from conference play and recruiting. NFLHC. "Who's the biggest bust you thought would be a great player?" - Rome Fred Tindale is the first person that comes to mind... Alex Bridgewater too. I think both were could have been amazing starters. Tindale got ruined by coaching and injuries and Bridgewater by being drafted to the wrong team. "If you play Civilization games, which Civ do you use?" - Rome I much prefer Paradox games to Civilization. Civilization is way too random with way too much "fake" depth for me. Technology doesn't make much sense although the random worlds are cool. For the Paradox games I like the Duke of Nassau (CK2), Brandenburg (EU4), Austria-Hungary (Victoria), and Germany (HoI4). "What's your girlfriend's reaction to this hobby?" - Rome She doesn't care and doesn't really like sports except esports (Dota only) and a little soccer and hockey.
  10. NO ONE MAY SUBMIT A RESPONSE. After several days of record rainfall Paul Brown Stadium crews have lost control of the grass situation. "It's a nightmare," said Groundskeeper Michael Smith. "We were already having trouble with the grass due to a weed problem and now it's completely run away on us. Fortunately the weed is also dead." "Weed? What weed? Where?" Bengals General Manager DangerZoneh responded in a press conference at the Stadium today. "We may need to bring new grass in. Hopefully the next home game is unaffected." Michael Smith added, "I'm working hard to find new sod but it's going to be a definite issue next game." Both teams involved in the next home game at Paul Brown Stadium will have their likelihood of fumbling be increased by 50% and the likelihood of injury is increased by 30%.
  11. My complaining last week got me a point.
  12. NO ONE MAY SUBMIT A RESPONSE. Ryan Frey, defensive end for the Eagles, recently appeared for an interview on Sirius XM's The Blitz to talk about his involvement, along with several other Eagles' players, in local community projects. "I'd like to call on Eagles fans to come out to their local Habitat for Humanity on Saturday and help provide supplies or skilled work constructing houses for the less privileged. I will be there along with Allan (Taylor), Cameron (Whelahan), Jack (Green), and DeAndre (Hawkins)," Frey said during the interview. "I will also be inviting thirty children from social welfare programs to come attend the next Eagles' home game as my personal guests of honor. They'll be allowed to come on the field during pre-game warmups and will each receive football gear and an invite to our summer football camp." Ryan Frey has gained +5% fitness, the Eagles have gained +4% media standing, and Allan Taylor, Cameron Whelahan, Jack Green, DeAndre Hawkins have gained +2% fitness.
  13. Have you experimented with rotating offensive line players? What have you found works best gameplan wise? Where do you like putting your biggest tackle? How about your guard? Do you think about the passing game when you plan your O-Line or the running game?
  14. I'm printing this out and taping it to the top of the CFBHC trophy cabinet in my apartment
  15. He got reinstated so neither?
  16. Quick small one for this one as it came a bit late: Commissioners please make sure your members have updated this going into the 2020 Season: Find your conference's template and PLEASE CHECK IT.
  17. I mean if you had played with a real gameplan I think you were favored at home...
  18. YOUNG GUNS Jaguars improved to historically best 7-1 with MNF trouncing of Bengals
  19. Uh where is Florida?
  20. The redshirt sophomore wants to build and expand on his growth the previous two years and take a major leadership role in the Gators' 2020 season. Gainesville, Fla. - Eunice, LA, native Abdoul Ridley recently sat down with to let us know more about his drive to win. The 2017 recruit has evolved to become the starting Gator linebacker with the graduation of several key players after the 2019 season. Abdoul wants to help Coach Soluna return The Swamp to being one of the most fearsome away games on any Division I FBS team's schedule and truly believes he can help the Gators ascend to this level. (Q) What is your motivation heading into the season? (A) It's all about dedication and work ethic. I want to be a role model for the younger team members. Even if you aren't active on a play you should show the opponent that you always ball hard whether that's through hitting hard or preperation. I'm a student of the game and I want everyone to know that. (Q) Were you frustrated by last season? (A) I gotta be honest here: 3-9 is not where this program belongs. I wish Coach Neo well but things just did not work out well with the coaching staff and our goals. I hope we can build on the foundation Coach Neo left with us but take it to greater heights with Coach Soluna. (Q) It's very clear you set yourself with high expectations, did you expect more last season or hope for more this season? (A) I can't change the past but I can set myself to give us a better future. I know a lot of the defense rests on my shoulders and I want to make sure people know I can handle that. Practice the last few weeks has already made me feel that the process is working. Trust the process. Work hard. Ball out. (Q) What progress have you made in stopping the run? (A) I spent most of last season setting the foundation for myself to learn how to effectively stop the run but most of my development occured in the passing game. I really want to take this season to excel in stopping the run and I've already talked to the coaching staff about that. (Q) Do you feel comfortable as a leader on the current Gators team? (A) I was born to lead. I know that sounds like I'm full of myself or whatever but I really believe that I can help the team fight to the end. (Q) Do you have any goals set for this season? (A) I want to be a National Champion. I know it might be foolish to expect that to happen this season but the fight is there and Coach has done a lot of great things before. I want to give him his first title before I leave Gainesville. That's my promise to Gator Nation. (Q) What do you see as the strength of the defense? (A) The D-Line is exceptional. I see the work they put in week after week. Timmy Key and Emmanuel are unreal. SEC O-Lines better be scared cause we're coming for you. (Q) What is the biggest thing you learned last year? (A) Stay patient, don't get frustrated, get ready for the future. I'm hungry and I need to satisfy that hunger. Thanks to Abdoul Ridley for finding time in his busy day to sit down with
  21. I'd like to establish a better Hall of Fame for this site. Do you guys have any opinions of what you would like to see (outside of the wiki) to honor national champions, Heisman winners, Super Bowl champs, etc?
  22. K I've put this off long enough. Who needs their sidepost avatars updated in any way. SHC teams? Changed NFLHC teams? Let me know if you notice someone elses as well.
  23. Recruiting v2.1 --------------------------------------------------- General Changes *Commitment threshold will reduce from 50 by 5 a week after Week 4 down to a minimum of 20. *Players who have only 1 school listed within 30 points for 3 consecutive weeks will commit to that school. *The school(s) with the most drafted players will receive +2 weekly recruiting points. If tied each tied school receives the bonus. (This year: Alabama Crimson Tide and Nebraska Cornhuskers) *The school(s) with the most drafted players from each conference (excluding any schools from the previous award, i.e. Alabama, Nebraska) will receive +1 weekly recruiting points. If more than three teams are tied, the conference is excluded from receiving this bonus. (This year: UGA/Miss State(SEC), Michigan (Big 10), TCU/Iowa State (Big 12), Southern Miss (CUSA), Arizona State (Pac 12), Air Force/Colorado State/Boise State (MWC), ND (Indy), Akron/Buffalo/EMU (MAC), No AAC Team (AAC)) <--- Someone check these they were done by a tired llamas and Darman. In-State/Bordering State Changes *In-state (and bordering state) bonuses do not occur until at least 5 points have been committed from an in-state school. At this point the player will receive the value that was given freely in the previous recruiting version. *Initial points committed to an in-state recruit are doubled for free up to 20 points. (i.e. You put 20 points on someone from your state that you had not previously put points on it will count as 40. You put 50 points on someone from your state that you had not previously put points on it will count as 70 (50+20 cap).) If these are the initial points then he will still receive the in-state bonus points. Expanded/Changed Options *Added "Star Recruit" - select one player who will receive an automatic amount of points per week based on the information below. Must be used in the first week and is independent of state location restrictions. National Champion and Runner-Up (15 points per week), 12-0 and Playoff Teams (13), Bowl Winners (12), Bowl Losers (11), Remaining Teams (9), 0-12 (7) *Added "Team Needs" designation - select two positions on your team page, any points spent on players of this position gain an additional 10% for free. (You label OG and ILB as team needs and you spend 10 points on an ILB, the player will in fact receive 11 points) *Pipeline States will now receive a 20% bonus on a foreign state and a 25% bonus if it is the home state. Pipeline states must now BORDER the state of their school or be their home state. Pipeline states remain public and must be declared before Week 1. *Added "Host Camps" - Each school can declare one state where they receive a 15% bonus on points spent. THIS STATE MUST BE A STATE WHERE A TEAM FROM THEIR CONFERENCE IS FROM AND IT CANNOT BE THEIR HOME STATE. Host Camp state must be set prior to recruiting start and can be changed during the offseason. Hosted camps will be public, to be displayed on your interface team profile. Interface/Visibility Changes *School Visits, Coach Visits, Star Recruits, and Host Camp by schools are now visible for everyone. *If a recruit has less than or equal to five points between the leader and any other schools the recruit will be marked as "Toss Up" (Note to Inspiral: Single out Toss-Up recruits to be easily visible on their own page and likely marked read or be larger or something similar)(everyone: suggest better name). *Schools within five points are displayed as toss-up (see above). Schools between 5-30 points behind are shown with their normal logo. Schools that have put any points on a player but are not listed in the previous information will be listed by hovering over the + dropdown that existed before (or some other way inspiral figures out to make it visible). NOTE: All changes are dependent on whether inspiral is able to add these.
