  1. There were three recruits signed from the same high school in Chicago and a total of five from Chicago so they're all kind of stacked on top of each other.
  2. Thank you all for coming today for what is a great day in Chippewa football. I am thrilled to announce that robcarlson77 has been named as the new head football coach here at Central Michigan University! Welcome home coach! Thank you Athletic Director Alford and let me get this press conference started the right way. Fire Up Chips! I appreciate everyone coming out to welcome me as the new head coach at CMU. I really can’t put into words how happy I am to be able to return home and coach at my alma mater, it’s truly a blessing. CMU is a special place and has a great history of success on the football field. I have experienced it firsthand and I hope that I can help continue the success we have become accustomed to. Coach johnkirk did a terrific job in leading this team to nine wins and a bowl victory this past season and we certainly want to improve on those accomplishments. I know there are some great players in place that will hopefully help ease this transition. The 2022 season may have just recently ended, but we’re ready to get to work on 2023! When Athletic Director Alford contacted me about the opening, coaching at CMU wasn’t really something that was on my mind and I told him I wasn't interested. We had started to build some momentum at Northwestern and I was committed to that program. But as the days went on, I kept thinking about this offer and the opportunity to return to Mt. Pleasant. There’s not many coaches who get the opportunity to coach at their alma mater and when I started to dig deeper into the possibility of coaching at CMU, it was clear that I couldn’t pass this opportunity up. I’m beyond excited to meet the current players and to speak with our signees and to learn about why they chose CMU and how we can best use their talents. There will no doubt be an adjustment period for all of us, but it’s time to get CMU back to the top of the conference. That school on the west side of Michigan has enjoyed far too much success and it’s time for someone to challenge them for the conference crown and to bring home the victory cannon trophy. I think we have a team in place that can challenge for the MAC and we look forward to showing that! I hope to see everyone out at Kelly/Shorts stadium next season. It’s your support and cheering that will help us achieve our goals! Thank you all for coming out and I will be happy to answer any questions. Fire Up Chips!
  3. Hello, I have been approved for Central Michigan in the MAC and I'm submitting my elevation request. Thanks!
  4. 1. Please list your email address and/or your reddit username at which you can be contacted. robcarlson77@gmail.com 2. Before continuing, please thoroughly read the coaching course and feel free to ask questions. Confirm that you have read the coaching course by writing "Confirmed" below. Confirmed 3. What team do you want to coach? Central Michigan Chippewas 4. Please select two backup teams (in descending order of preference) in case your first choice is unavailable. Stay at Northwestern 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’ll be 32 on Friday and live in Michigan. I am a CMU alum and currently work in higher ed. I just finished my 4th season on the site and think I fit in pretty good here. All hail E.J. McGuire. 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? Even with two kids I’ve been able to find the time to be active and contribute media and I’m hoping that won’t change. My job isn’t the most demanding which usually provides me some time to get things done. 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 a one win and four win season under my belt so I’m used to it. 8. How did you find out about this site? If recommended by a friend, please post his/her username. I believe I found it via a google search a few years back.
  5. To anyone considering, I think NW is a good gig. The B1G west is tough and Illinois is tough to go against in recruiting but the state of Illinois has a pretty good recruiting pool.
  6. Good afternoon everyone and thank you for coming on such short notice. You have all been called here today so that I can inform you that effective immediately, I have resigned from my position as head coach of the Northwestern Wildcats. This was truly one of the most difficult decisions of my coaching career. The three seasons I’ve spent here in Evanston have created lifelong memories that I will cherish forever. We went from a one win team in our first season to now having reached a bowl game in back-to-back seasons and earning our first bowl win. An accomplishment that everyone associated with this program should be immensely proud of. This staff has grinded every day to succeed on the field and in recruiting, and we have seen our recruiting class ranking climb every year. There is still work to be done, but the groundwork has been laid. I have also been able to witness first hand the development of players like E.J. McGuire, Cory Carradine and Victor Crosby and many others, who have bought into our philosophy and what we preach and have a bright future no matter what they pursue. I would also like to thank Athletic Director Phillips for giving me the opportunity to become head coach at this terrific University and for giving me the platform to speak today, something that he did not have to do. I’m confident that I am leaving Northwestern in a better place and I will be cheering for the new coach to continue to grow this program. In regards to my future and the rumors that are out there, I don’t feel that this is the time or place to address those rumors and to talk about where I may be coaching next season. There’s never a good time to leave a job, but I’m confident that the Wildcat faithful will have a lot to look forward to and I know the new coach will build on the foundation that’s been established. We have several good recruits who are ready to suit up and help this team continue to grow. If there are any questions, I will be happy to answer. Thank you. Go Wildcats!
  7. It was all smiles on the sidelines as the Northwestern Wildcats wrapped up the 2022 college football season with a 27-24 victory over the Louisville Cardinals in the Detroit Bowl. The win pushes the Wildcats record to 7-6 and signals the first above .500 season and bowl win under head coach robcarlson77. The Detroit Bowl was a similar story for the Wildcats. A tough, head-to-head battle decided by only a few points. Leading the way once again was Senior QB, E.J. McGuire. Suiting up in his final game in the purple and white, McGuire finished the game with 267 yards passing, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. For the season, McGuire passed for 4,046 yards, 30 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. A pretty remarkable stat line considering the signal caller was sacked 35 times on the season due to an inexperienced offensive line. “This has been a fun season for all of us,” said McGuire. “We had a chance to win in most of our games and to finish it off with a bowl win is really awesome. I’m happy for all of my fellow seniors and for the Wildcat fans who made the trip to Detroit to support us. We couldn’t have done it without them.” McGuire will leave Evanston as one of the most successful players in school history, having thrown for more than 12,500 yards and 87 touchdowns. He is certain to hear his name called in the upcoming NFL draft. This young man has improved his play every season and could be a later round steal for a team needing a QB to groom. McGuire’s favorite target was once again Junior wideout Cory Carradine. Carradine hauled in eight passes for 67 yards and one touchdown and pushed his season total to 95 catches, 1,200 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns. “We wanted to send E.J. and all of our seniors out with a bowl win and I’m so happy that we followed through,” said Carradine. “We had a lot of tough losses this year and we wanted to finish on a positive note and come home with the trophy and that’s exactly what we did.” Coach robcarlson77 was ecstatic after the win as he stood soaked in Gatorade. “These kids have fought hard all season,” said the coach. Some of them like E.J., Cory and Victor were here for our first season when we won one game. They could have gave up and thrown in the towel, but they haven’t. All of these guys have gone to work every day and fought hard. To be able to send them off with a bowl win is great and I’m just happy for everyone, especially our seniors. You know this is a great feeling, but I hope it makes the guys want it more. We still want to win a conference championship and be a playoff team. Winning a bowl game is a great accomplishment and a step in the right direction, but there is lots of work left to do.” It was a season of firsts for coach robcarlson77. First above .500 season, first bowl win and first win over in-state rival Illinois. There is a lot to be proud of, but coach is right, there is a lot more work left to do to get to the top of the highly competitive Big Ten West. With McGuire set to graduate, the Wildcats will have a big question mark under center. The coaches have been after JuCo quarterback Devon Wardwell for several weeks now. Wardwell is set to make his announcement in a few days and would be a huge get for Northwestern. However, the JuCo product has strong family ties to Illinois State and is rumored to be considering playing at the FCS level.
  8. Heyo! First season above .500! Another nail biter, like almost every game this season. God bless E.J. McGuire. You will be missed.

  10. He got my vote. Though a case could also be made for @SlinkyJr at MSU. That team just kept winning and I couldn't quite figure out how.
  11. Perhaps it's because I live in Metro Detroit and a lot of my sports memories revolve around the Ilitch family spending tons of money to be good, but god damn do I love me some Little Caesars. Of the chain restaurants, I will take a hot n' ready over any of them. Yes, if one has been sitting around for awhile it can suck, but a fresh out of the oven Little Caesars is the best.
  12. It’s a Christmas miracle! My first win over Illinois and it gets me bowl eligible. Thank you Jesus.
  13. Hmmmm. That’s not an ideal 4th quarter.
