  1. Week 3 Recap This week the American Athletic Conference saw all out of conference games as teams try to find their stride before in conference games begin. Here is a quick recap of the AAC games this past week. Wins After week 3: 2-0 Won 30-26 vs Utah State UCF managed to come out and take a small lead early, but was unable to get any comfortable distance from the Aggies. While UCF had solid offensive yardage, they couldn’t help but give away 100 yards in penalties. Utah State was unable to capitalize however and UCF gets a win going into their first conference game against Houston. After week 3: 2-1 Won 41-21 vs MTSU Memphis laid down 31 of their 41 points in the first half while not allowing MTSU to do anything offensively. The second half was just clock management and a few garbage points for the Blue Raiders. Memphis takes this solid win into the bye week before facing their first conference opponent in week 5 After week 3: 2-1 Won 42-14 vs Louisiana-Monroe Like Memphis, USF had this game under control by the end of the first half with a 3 touchdown lead. Behind Savion Ross’s 342 yard 4 TD performance, the Bulls go into a week 4 bye on a win. They hope to use this break to prepare for their conference opener against Memphis in week 5. After week 3: 2-0 Won 40-35 vs Arkansas State Arkansas State exploited the secondary of Tulsa while the Golden Hurricanes found the endzone both through the air and on the ground. This was a tight contest with Tulsa down by 3 at the half. While the second half was much lower scoring than the first, Tulsa managed to pull out the win with both teams having over 430 yards of offense each. Tulsa will try to take their momentum on the road to Washington in week 4. Losses After week 3: 0-2 Lost 24-29 at NC State ECU travelled to Raleigh in hopes of continuing their command of their yearly series with NC State. What they found was a tough opponent and a close match-up deserving of this intense in-state rivalry. A close game throughout, the Wolfpack were able to hold up defensively in the 4th quarter and take the win. ECU will try to rebound next week against Central Michigan. After week 3: 0-2 Lost 15-29 to Central Michigan Houston’s secondary had no answer for the passing attack of the Chippewas Friday night as CMU’s Byron Suggs threw for 309 yards and 3 TDs. Houston did not have the same success as Rickie Shaffer only completed 50% of his passes for 209 yards with 2 TD and 2 INTs. Houston will need to get the ball in the endzone more than twice if they expect to get a will against UCF in week 4. After week 3: 1-2 Lost 22-24 at Ole Miss While Tulane’s offense was well behind that of Ole Miss, the Green Wave was able to stick with the Rebels the whole game. In the end, Tulane’s inability to get touchdowns instead of fieldgoals turned out to be the deciding factor. Tulsa will go into the bye week on this loss and will have to use the break to prepare for their conference opener against Houston in week 5. After week 3: 0-2 Lost 18-39 vs Boston College Uconn fell behind early as they were unable to stop the rushing attack of BC’s Jordan Godson. Giving up 229 yards to Godson as well as 94 yards rushing to J.M. Gill meant that UConn was never in control of the game as the Eagles set the pace of the game. As for UConn’s offense, the story is about the same. While the Huskies were able to pass for 270 yards, Rob Andersen only completed 51% of his passes, threw 2 INTs, and was sacked twice. The run games was essentially non-existent this week with only 9 attempts for 15 yards. UConn will try to get their first win next week against Navy. After week 3: 0-2 Lost 41-31 at Clemson SMU fell behind early in what looked like a blowout until the 4th quarter. Despite the Mustang’s 21 point effort in the 4th, they couldn’t pull off the comeback against AW3 and the Tigers. The Mustangs managed good offensive numbers, but defensively they couldn’t contain Clemson’s passing attack giving up 318 yards and 3 TD in the air. SMU will try to rebound next week when they take on Texas Tech. Byes

    [2022] Week 2 UCF Postgame

    Coach alexfall862, congratulations on the close win. Even though you out-gained Utah State by 170 yards they were able to stick with you and keep the game close. Other than the penalties, what do you think allowed this to happen and how to you plan to fix it for your game against Houston?
  3. I plan on focusing more on high school recruits over JUCOs to help cover the roster better. JUCOs are great, don't get me wrong, but a kid who comes in his freshman year and stays till his junior or senior year that helps with consistency compared to a more "short-term" fix. We have some great kids this year. If we can play smart we have the tools to make some noise in the AAC. T.J. is a wonderful kid who is going to succeed at whichever team is lucky enough to steal him in the draft. He may go 5th round if a team is interested in a kicker. He's good enough to go much higher in the draft, but I don't know many coaches who are willing to take a special teams player much higher unfortunately.
  4. We have to focus on solidifying our roster with recruits and playing to our strengths. There are a lot of good players that come out of high school each year. We just need to focus on kids that play our kind of ball. Once we get kids in that fit the scheme we want to run, we will be much more competitive.
  5. The University of Cincinnati Athletics Department would like to announce the hiring of Lrickar1 as the Head Coach of the Cincinnati Bearcats Football program. We hope that he can help bring some needed stability to this football program, and in turn bring about success. Now, Coach Lrickar1 will take the podium... Thank you. I am happy to be back in the world of college football after my short break. I look forward to working with the University of Cincinnati and bringing success to the Bearcats football program. This will not be an overnight change as lack of consistent coaching has hurt this program. Over the next couple of season, we will bring in recruits that will build a strong foundation for this team to grow on. Our second goal is to become competitive in the AAC and then nationally. This team will be making some noise soon enough. I will now take questions from the floor.

    It's been 10 years or so for me, so I don't remember much of the details. The biggest thing for me was to not second guess myself. I just answered the questions without over thinking. I didn't do much studying apart from going over my class notes so I'm not real sure on the books or sites.
