  1. Tulsa is really really bad. And Buffalo is kinda good
  2. SMU yes (#12), UCF no
  3. Trouble in N-0-LA Saints struggle to find answers as last remaining winless team, lose 21-14 in Minnesota.
  4. Me rn: :^)
  5. Why isn't [insert meme QB here] the greatest QB of all time omg? Seriously though, I think the Brooksheer-Brown battle for best all-time can be hotly debated for hours on end. They're two of the greatest to ever toss the pigskin, and they were absolutely incredible in their own separate ways. As a newer user, I love seeing this because it allows me to immerse myself in some history before I arrived. Keep up the great media, Franz!
  6. YE is making the dopest media possible because, like his teeth that just got removed, he is wise :^)
  7. Who's this Jim?
  8. Air Force has a player at every position sans center, fullback, and cornerback. The conference is literally just Air Force.

  11. So, uhh, about that....haha..... http://cfbhc.com/wiki/index.php?title=Category:Team_navigational_boxes Y'all can edit them if you want, but they kind of exist already lol EDIT: Definitely put them at the bottom of your team page if you haven't already. That becomes super helpful for everyone!
  12. I like it. I think there's a few players more that we need to keep, but overall I really do share your opinion. Great write-up! Somehow we haven't had enough of these types of articles
  13. Don't get comfortable bb. State's catching up in CFBHC, just in time for our rivalry to start (you haven't scheduled me yet!)
  14. My first game was against Slaughterhouse-Five and the Colorado State Rams, led by Devin Conroy and Jeremy Scarborough (how could I forget my first game?). I legit went into that game without help, just with my own patched up gameplan. Walt went off for the first time as a Chippewa, and the defense, despite giving up 400 yards in the air and letting Scarborough have a field day, held on just enough for us to capture a 31-28 win. The reaction was pretty wild at the time, I thought, because CMU was just coming off a 1-11 season and had lost to UNM at the start of the year (yes, THAT Viva Los Lobos). The community seemed to be quite welcoming at the time, and I thoroughly enjoyed it despite being a little on the quiet side at first. After the win, I started to come out of my shell a bit. I would think that, had the community not been as appealing as I found it to be then, I wouldn't have enjoyed myself as much as I do now.
  15. We actually will go 0-16 lol. Injuries to the line have fucked the offense over. gg Bucs
  16. Pros: - I now know which of my two quarterbacks I'm starting. - I've got a good receiver in Felix Browning. - Holley continues to be good, and with Patterson and Manny McD, offensive lines should be scared. - Micah Jackson is a reliable backup RB for Keith. - Tight Ends are good. - We won't miss many field goals this season. Cons: - Our offensive line looked like hot garbage. There are many teams with better front sevens than us. - Secondary still doesn't seem terribly solid, per usual. - TE at WR3? Hell no. - Punting will be a huge negative all season. - Tight Ends are good against our defense. Overall I'm happy with how this played out. Learned a lot, and now I have to make some DC decisions moving forward. Thank you Soluna for allowing this to happen!
  17. I always look for some sort of mismatch on the opposing team. I feel like a big part of my "success" at CMU and NCSU is just finding mismatches and doing my best to expose them. Of course, your players have to be capable of doing this, which mine have shown mixed results normally (Blake Fry does not have the arm to throw deep). I genuinely feel that looking for mismatches with potentially weaker squads is the best approach. This could totally be different for teams in the upper echelon of college football. I actually do a lot of gameplanning the week of the game. I tend to get it out of the way early because I hate second-guessing myself at the last minute, and that's what leads to nervous breakdowns and potentially spoiled results. Most of the gameplanning is for the active week, although I have gameplanned for the future (ex. switching to a 4-3 during the Georgia State game to prepare for UNC, Cuse, BC, and Wake).
  18. Believe it or not I do find reasons to be optimistic during football season. Only then does it go down the drain :^)
  19. Hope you can stick around in Winston-Salem, NC. I expect big things from you K3ndr!ck
  20. If there's one thing I want to be known for, it's permanent optimism about my collegiate teams. It's why I joined in the first place, and it's the one thing that will always keep me around
  21. Eric McLean, BLUE, 35 of 55 for 409 yards, 5 TD, 2 INT Please oh please have an off day when I come to Houston. Also Jordan North looked good. alien's got one hell of a QB to work with in the near future
  22. Welcome to Raleigh, Bry.....fack
  23. Walt Sutherland was my first quarterback, and I honestly believe that he got me excited about the sim when I first started out. He transferred over from Auburn since he wouldn't get playing time above Jacory Kessler (now a receiver? lol), but he was damn good in the MAC. Was explosive both in the air and on the ground against Colorado State, and he got me my first "marquee" win over Toledo. I want to say he has a clutch factor, because he was big in the late game to knock off Ball State and rivals Western Michigan (the first CMU win ever in the Michigan MAC trophy series). He took the Chips (and me) to our first ever bowl game, where we unfortunately got blown out, but it was getting there that was big. I couldn't coach him in his final season in the sim (only a 3.5), but llamas did well in ensuring that he went out in the postseason once again (and going 2-0 against Toledo). He's now the OC here in Raleigh. He's still arguably my favorite player in the sim, no matter how much I hype up other players. Examples of clutch: - Walt Sutherland to Isiah Dudley, 29 yd TD pass - 1:30 (31-28) (CMU) : FINAL SCORE: Central Michigan 31-28 Colorado State - Walt Sutherland, 6 yd TD run - 0:31 (28-24) (CMU) : FINAL SCORE: Central Michigan 28-24 Ball State - Walt Sutherland, 9 yd TD run - 13:20 (21-26) (CMU) + Walt Sutherland to James Armstrong, 93 yd TD pass - 4:21 (21-33) (CMU) : FINAL SCORE: Kent State 21-33 Central Michigan
  24. Wake Forest Demon Deacons 2019 Record: 0-12 (0-7 ACC) 7th in the Atlantic It was very ugly in Winston-Salem last season. Wake finished the year at 0-12, being one of two winless teams at the end of the season (Oregon State being the other). Not much went quite right on either side of the ball. The offense failed to hold on to the ball, being forced into 24 turnovers (four fumbles, twenty interceptions), easily worst in the conference. Elias Milner and Hemana Toma were inexplicably ineffective in the air; in fact, all but one quarterback (Max Laws) threw for more yards than the Wake duo combined. The defense struggled to take the ball away from the opposition, recording only three interceptions all season. The front seven provided little to no pressure, picking up only six sacks. Make no mistake - Wake has some talented players, but absolutely nothing clicked for them last season. Can they break the spell this season? Notable Losses: QB Elias Milner 6-2 238 Sr Notre Dame (Lawrenceville NJ) 3.0 of 3.0 [Scrambling] WR Joseph Betancourt-Zepeda 6-3 220 Sr Crest (Shelby NC) 2.5 of 2.5 [Speed] OG Nico Carlin 6-4 320 Sr Riverside (Durham NC) 3.0 of 3.0 [Run Blocking] DT Kayden Paige 6-2 297 Sr Southern Guilford (Greensboro NC) 2.5 of 2.5 [2-Gap] It's less about the players that have been lost to graduation and more about the players that new coach K3ndr!ck_L@mar is redshirting. Milner, eventually replaced by Toma in midseason, was arguably the better of the two quarterbacks stat-wise, having a higher completion percentage and a higher TD:INT ratio. Betancourt-Zepeda was Wake's second-leading receiver (339 yards, 1 TD). All of Wake's potential pro players are being redshirted this year in an attempt to prepare for the future, meaning we won't see the likes of Kyle Palmer (#1 rusher), Julio Cass (#1 receivers as a tight end), Carter Duncan (#1 LB), and De'Marius Mims (#1 safety). Notable Returners: QB Hemana Toma 6-4 237 Sr Pocono Mountain West (, PA) 3.0 of 3.0 [Scrambling] WR Abdoulaye Hawkins 6-0 212 (So) Milford (Milford, DE) 3.5 of 3.5 [Target] DE Jaylen Grayson 6-2 243 Jr Southeast Raleigh (Raleigh, NC) 3.0 of 3.0 [Blitz] DT Bryan Hendrickson 6-2 301 Sr Cumberland Valley (Mechanicsburg, PA) 3.0 of 3.5 [2-Gap] OLB Damani Patton 6-1 254 Jr Montville Township (Montville, NJ) 3.0 of 3.0 [Blitz] OLB Isaiah Booker 6-3 218 Jr Northwest (Germantown, MD) 3.0 of 3.0 [Coverage] CB Damien Burrell 6-1 191 Sr Manchester (Midlothian, VA) 3.0 of 3.0 [Zone Coverage] It's not a lot, but it's something. Toma, of course, was the other starting quarterback for Wake last season, but he struggled a lot more than Milner down the stretch, and most importantly, he failed to find the W that the Deacs desperately wanted. Hawkins returns as Toma's supposedly top target (was 3rd in receiving yards at WR1 last season). The defense sees the return of Grayson, who recorded half of Wake's sacks last season, and Hendrickson, their tackle maching in the middle of the line. Patton, Booker, and Burrell also return as playmakers, with the latter having important top cornerback experience despite falling into the #2 corner position this season. Potential Strengths: Applying Pressure - The Deacons return 100% of their accumulated pass rush from last season in Grayson, Hendrickson, Booker, and Patton. Lamont Landrum, the defensive end opposite of Grayson, is also a returning player, although his production was minimal in comparison to his teammates in the front seven. With the addition of sophomore Adrian Gamble at defensive tackle (assuming Wake properly runs the 4-3), Wake should have a much improved pass rush, and this can help a rather weak secondary in pass protection. Assuming the likes of Grayson and Booker can get into the backfield more often this season, the defense in Winston-Salem might not be nearly as poor this time around. Strength at Corner - The return of Burrell means that the Deacons do have one player with experience in the secondary, however he has fallen to #2 corner on the current depth chart. Alexander Glenn takes over as the #1 corner, and he looks to be more solid overall in coverage than he returning teammate. Burrell has experience against top receivers in the conference, actually performing decently well against the likes of Brandon Hester, Josiah McCray, and Omari Ruff. If there's going to be a positive to this secondary, it's going to be the corners somewhat holding down the fort. Potential Weaknesses: Taking the [Temporary] Reigns - A lot of positions will see first-time starters this season due to the redshirting of Wake's key players. Most notably is the temporary replacement of Kyle Palmer with senior Oscar Sanderson. The two backs couldn't be more different, with Palmer preferring to beat people out with speed and finesse, whereas Sanderson would rather pound right through his opposition. The offensive line (starting four new players) is more built for Palmer's approach, although Palmer was able to put up solid numbers despite a weak offensive line. The same probably won't be true for Sanderson; he's not as talented a player as Palmer, nor does he have the speed or energy to break off longer runs - a main reason Wake was at least competitive in some of their games. 1-Dimensional Analysis - The thing about Sanderson is, he might actually have to carry more of the load this season. With Hemana Toma returning to the starting role, the offense actually lacks a main identity. We don't know if they can run without Palmer (Toma certainly showed that he can't, picking up 15 yards on 14 carries). The passing game is almost nonexistent as well, with Toma having the lowest completion percentage, second-lowest YPA (behind Blake Fry), and lowest QB Rating. The offensive line isn't promising enough for the run game, and the receivers aren't solid enough for the passing game. What is this Wake Forest offense? Can K3ndr!ck give us the answer? 2020 Schedule: Week 1: at East Carolina (Greenville, NC) Week 3: at North Texas (Denton, TX) Week 4: Fresno State (Winston-Salem, NC) Week 5: at South Carolina (Columbia, SC) Week 7: at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA) Week 8: North Carolina State (Winston-Salem, NC) Week 10: at Clemson (Clemson, SC) Week 11: Duke (Winston-Salem, NC) Week 12: at Boston College (Chestnut Hill, MA) Week 14: Louisville (Winston-Salem, NC) Week 15: Florida State (Winston-Salem, NC) Week 16: at Syracuse (Syracuse, NY) What to Expect: Not much, really. The non-conference schedule doesn't look necessarily bad, but you have to consider that this is Wake Forest without their best players. ECU has enough left in the tank to make work of the Deacs, and you have to pray for Toma when Wake visits Javier Grady and North Texas. Fresno still has Ryan Harris, although we're yet to see what becomes of him without Sam Hiller-Weeden. South Carolina has too much talent, despite it never coming to fruition. In conference, there's only one game that Wake can realistically win, and that's on the road at Syracuse. Unfortunately, Syracuse still has a lot of solid pieces defensively, and Wake will eventually come up empty once again this season at 0-12 (0-8 ACC) and 7th in the Atlantic once again. Best Case Scenario: A simply average team can put together an offense and shock a few people. It's not impossible for Wake to knock off ECU and North Texas, and Syracuse is vulnerable offensively after losing Dylan Bishop to the pros. 3-9 (1-7 ACC) seems to be Wake's cap this season, and that would be a huge plus after laying an egg last season. Worst Case Scenario: There's nothing worse than an 0-12 season, and I already expect that to happen. The only thing that could be worse in Winston-Salem is if the Deacons aren't competitive in their easiest games. 2020 has already been labelled a throwaway season by the coaching staff, so there's honestly not much to expect with Wake Forest. Just get through it and move on.
