    1. This might get really long, but I have 2 things I want to get off my chest. Firstly, and this is very minor to some of the stuff you older guys have put forward, but I am in a weird spot in a relationship with this girl. We met early this year, and started "dating" if you will about 3 and a half months ago, and made it "official" just over a month ago (don't get me started on relationship bs). She is a really lovely girl, sweet, funny, caring, empathetic and mostly fun to be around. However, she is occasionally quite irrational and over reacts to a lot of really small things, and she can be a bit of a bitch sometimes, but mostly its fine. She is reasonably attractive, but nothing too amazing, but it was mainly her personality that drew me to her. However, I can't see her often because of all my school work, sport and music commitments, but she wants to see me as often as humanly possible, but I am reasonably introverted and don't need to see people as often as she does. Recently though, I have begun to feel less attached because of some of the stuff she pulls, but she thinks I am amazing and the best thing since sliced bread, and I don't want to hurt her because she is a lovely person for the most part. Adding on to that, she has a huge number of difficult things she has to go through. She is a foster child who was two foster siblings being raised by a single foster mum. Her biological parents were in and out of jail, and both were strong drug abusers. She has abandonment issues and has suffered at least one extremely traumatic experience, so she sees a therapist regularly and struggles with various other mental issues. Also, she had a year long relationship that she recently got out of, in which she and her boyfriend had sex. Initially it was pretty normal, but later into the relationship every time they were together, regardless of if she wanted to, he would pressure her for sex, and she would eventually comply. Because of this, she has been slut shamed at school, and has even more things to grapple with mentally. Also, this is not an arrogant statement, but she is less mature and less intelligent than me, but she is not stupid nor is she immature. She is less able than myself to deal with things going wrong and more often than not just avoids the issue entirely, particularly with school work. Also, her main group of friends has begun treating her like shit because she isn't "popular" like them (doing drugs and drinking alcohol). I have told her that I think she should just forget them because they are pretty shitty people, but she says "oh, its too complicated". This is her only real friendship group apart from my group of friends that she has recently met, and I feel like if I left her, it could be catastrophic for her. I feel terrible for thinking like this, but its just the way it is. Secondly, and perhaps more inline with what some of you have already said, I really don't have motivation to do anything. I get my work done and always go to music rehearsals and sports training, but what I am chasing doesn't give me the motivation to put more effort in to school. I have been identified as gifted, talented and other such synonyms, and in my early years I lived up to it, placed 2nd in my year at school in Year 7. However, since then my results have gone down, not much but enough to where I am part of the top group, not distinguishing myself like I used to. If I like a subject and it interests me, I will put effort in and try to get 100%, but even then I don't try as hard as others. School is pretty boring, and as some of you know I spent most of it in the shoutbox, zoning out the teacher and not doing any work. I don't really know why, because I am naturally quite hardworking, and I work hard in sports and music when I am chasing something, but when I don't have a team to make or a band piece to perfect, I just sit on my phone or watching YouTube. It frustrates me and sometimes disgusts me, particularly when I leave school work to the last minute and stress myself out. Perhaps I am doing too much, but I am able to get everything done (at a reasonable level) even though I procrastinate for so long. Writing this out has made me start on a path of thinking that may be beneficial, but I am still unsure of how to proceed. Tl;dr: I am having second thoughts about a relationship but I don't want to hurt the girl, she has enough shit going on Tl;dr #2: I feel like I am underachieving and not putting in enough effort, but I am still doing well at school, but it feels like a drag and kind of useless. I know I have to do it to get where I want to go, but its not that interesting for the most part. If you did read any or all of this, thank you. Big thanks to @bingo415 for starting this read, this is just what I needed without knowing it.

      Football shows/podcasts

      I know we all love football here, maybe some love the atmosphere more, some because you played it and others because of the strategy. I for one fall in the last category, and spend a fair chunk of my free time trying to learn about more in depth strategy or player evaluation or schematic counters or play calling and more. As such, I am always looking for more football stuff to read/listen to/watch, what are your guys favourites or go-tos for this? This is what I currently listen to, and I recommend all of them, particularly Benjamin Solak from NDT scouting for his Contextualized Quarterbacking and Brett Kollmann for his outstanding film analysis. Mine are Brett Kollmann, Samuel Gold and Football Gameplan on YouTube. I read NDT scouting, NFL.com, and the soon to be launched http://thedraftnetwork.com/, and have just started looking through Cover1.com On Twitter I follow Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks, Brett Kollmann, Samuel Gold, Benjamin Solak (and others from NDT scouting) and some of the people they debate and retweet. The only podcast I listen to is Move the Sticks, but I am a fan and I have listened to the last 100ish episodes Thanks guys!

      A note.

      Sad to see you go, you almost single-handedly brought life to what was a pretty desolate conference. You toiled with a lack of coaches, and when you did get them, they often lacked a pulse. But you fought and you kept putting out quality media and being an ultra positive presence in the shoutbox and PMs. Thanks to your efforts I will always hold the MAC dear in my heart, and I started to watch them when I could IRL. I have had second thoughts about leaving Kent State now, because it and the MAC will always be my home. Here's to more success for you at UDub, you absolutely blitzed it at WMU. You the man, much love.

      [2021] All-Americans

      What a season from this young man. Unfortunately he won't be going pro, but he kept us in so many games, and took Marcus Black all the way back. Sad Parker isn't on here considering he beat Key on in every statistic, but he will be happy with SEC DPOTY. Congrats to all the men selected!
    6. Thank you! He wasn't playing well, but he was marginally better than Mackey. I don't think it changed too much for you but it is potentially a good lesson to learn I agree wholeheartedly. You have recruited really strongly these last two years, and a lot of the players have above average starting ability, so I think you are back to the postseason next year and in contention for the division in 2023
    7. Coming off a 9-4 season, and a 9-4 and a strong bowl win, the Commodores lost 2 of their linebackers that made up the best group in the country in 2020. Quarterback play was always going to be the determining factor, and unfortunately for Vanderbilt it wasn't up to standard. However, there is lots to be hopeful for with these last 2 recruiting classes and a top coach in serwendel, who has proven his ability in going 28-11 in the last 3 years. Coming into the season Key Losses: WR Ralph O’Rourke 6-0 197 (Sr) Joplin (Joplin MO) 4.0 of 4.0 [Target] OT Quinn Wolf 6-6 333 (Sr) Sullivan East (Bluff City TN) 4.0 of 4.0 [Run Blocking] DT Edward Will 6-0 315 (Sr) Christian Academy (Louisville KY) 4.0 of 4.0 [2-Gap] OLB Caleb McNamara 6-2 217 (Sr) Malvern (Malvern AR) 5.0 of 5.0 [Coverage] ILB Samuel Sands 6-2 243 (Sr) Norphlet (Norphlet AR) 4.5 of 4.5 [Will] SS Omar Broussard 5-10 171 Sr Mississippi Gulf Coast CC (Perkinston, MS) 4.5 of 4.5 [Zone Coverage] Key Returners/Newcomers: QB Tyler Mackey 6-3 239 (Fr) Covington (Covington TN) 2.0 of 4.5 [Pocket] QB Justin Malloy 5-11 212 (Sr) Southaven (Southaven, MS) 3.5 of 3.5 [Pocket] RB Kareem McGee 5-7 211 (Sr) Central (Little Rock, AR) 4.0 of 4.0 [Power] WR DeAndre Felder 6-5 216 Jr Sevier County (Sevierville, TN) 5.0 of 5.0 [Target] OG Isaac Bachman 6-3 321 (Fr) Warren County (McMinnville TN) 3.0 of 5.0 [Pass Blocking] OT Michael Becker 6-3 261 (Jr) Chattahoochee Valley Community College (Phenix City AL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Run Blocking] OG Justin Good 6-5 321 (Fr) Lewis County (Hohenwald TN) 2.0 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking] OLB Damian Dailey 6-0 230 (Jr) Central (Little Rock, AR) 5.0 of 5.0 [Blitz] ILB Adam Lovelace 6-2 234 (Sr) Morrilton (Morrilton, AR) 5.0 of 5.0 [Mike] OLB Jonas Hooker 6-1 230 Fr Northeast (Macon GA) 1.5 of 4.5 [Coverage] FS Khalil Dennis 6-2 219 (Sr) Cumberland County (Crossville, TN) 5.0 of 5.0 [Zone Coverage] Record: 3-9 (1-7) Results UNLV (W 20-34) Ole Miss (W 13-14) Middle Tennessee (W 26-31) At Georgia (L 10-27) Florida (L 16-13) At Toledo (L 20-28) At Arizona State (L 14-35) At Arkansas (L 9-28) South Carolina (L 24-20) At Missouri (L 20-45) At Kentucky (L 14-38) Tennessee (L 38-6) Season Rundown The Good A good start to the season with three wins to open up, albeit against easier opposition. With this momentum moving into Athens hopes were high, but a tough game was to come. They played Florida damn close, and were a missed field goal away from OT. A close-ish lose to the rightful national champions from Ohio followed, and another very close game against a very good South Carolina squad came soon after. On the numbers and awards side, only one Commodore received All-SEC recognition, with Adam Lovelace taking First Team at ILB (finishing with 62 tackles, 5 TFLs and a sack), while Kareem McGee really carried the offense, taking 254 carries (3rd in the SEC) for 1145 yards and 9 touchdowns at 4.51 a tote. The ultra-talented DeAndre Felder accounted for 608 yards and 6 touchdowns, 39% and 50% of the team totals, and considering the quarterback play (which we will get to) he performed well, using his monster frame to dominate defensive backs. On the defensive side sophomore DE Zachary Clemons lead the way with 4.5 sacks, while true freshman Jonas Hooker was supported by the two superstars at linebacker, racking up 43 tackles, 2 for a loss, half a sack and 4 passes defended. The Bad Quarterback(s) stuff was not good. Period. Fifth-Year Senior Justin Malloy, who has lead this team since 2019, and the talented but raw redshirt freshman Tyler Mackey both struggled mightily, throwing a combined statline of 142/291 for 1568, 12 TD/17 INT and 3 fumbles/3 fumbles lost. That comes to a passer rating of 95.98, in the bottom 15 in the country counting backups that started 1 game. No team can win games with quarterback play that turns over the ball almost twice per game and only scores once a game. Another disappointment was the play of two players with NFLHC potential: Khalil Dennis and Damian Dailey. Dennis finished the season with 4 tackles, 1 pick and 1 PD, while Dailey was outplayed by Hooker, having 15 tackles with 2 for a loss, 2 sacks and 1 PD. Hopefully this doesn't hit their draft stock too hard, as both have the ability to take their game a long way on Sundays. Looking Forward Key Losses: RB Kareem McGee 5-7 211 (Sr) Central (Little Rock, AR) 4.0 of 4.0 [Power] LB Adam Lovelace 6-2 234 (Sr) Morrilton (Morrilton, AR) 5.0 of 5.0 [Mike] FS Khalil Dennis 6-2 219 (Sr) Cumberland County (Crossville, TN) 5.0 of 5.0 [Zone Coverage] Key Returners/Newcomers (Without progressions, will be updated when progressions have happened) QB Tyler Mackey 6-3 239 (Fr) Covington (Covington TN) 2.0 of 4.5 [Pocket] RB Lawrence Owens-Hodges 5-8 176 (Fr) Cumberland County (Crossville TN) 2.0 of 4.0 [Speed]  WR DeAndre Felder 6-5 216 Jr Sevier County (Sevierville, TN) 5.0 of 5.0 [Target] TE Messiah Gresham 6-1 225 (Jr) Washington County (Springfield, KY) 4.5 of 4.5 [Blocking]  OT Michael Becker 6-3 261 (Jr) Chattahoochee Valley Community College (Phenix City AL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Run Blocking] OG Isaac Bachman 6-3 321 (Fr) Warren County (McMinnville TN) 3.0 of 5.0 [Pass Blocking] OG Justin Good 6-5 321 (Fr) Lewis County (Hohenwald TN) 2.0 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking] DE Zachary Clemons 6-2 243 (So) Justin-Siena (Napa, CA) 3.0 of 4.0 [Blitz] ILB Aiden Switzer 6-3 230 (Fr) Ripley (Ripley TN) 2.0 of 4.0 [Will] OLB Jonas Hooker 6-1 230 Fr Northeast (Macon GA) 1.5 of 4.5 [Coverage] SS Kyle Henley 5-10 186 (Jr) Lynn Camp (Corbin, KY) 4.0 of 4.0 [Zone Coverage] Players coming off redshirt OT Spencer Gage 6-5 333 Fr Whitefield Academy (Mableton GA) 1.5 of 4.0 [Run Blocking] OT Mareko Mea'ole 6-7 257 Fr William Blount (Maryville TN) 2.5 of 5.0 [Pass Blocking] OLB Jared Bass 6-3 244 Fr Grady (Atlanta GA) 1.0 of 4.5 [Blitz] ILB Omar Hicks 6-3 232 Fr Cookeville (Cookeville TN) 1.0 of 4.0 [Mike] CB Shiloh Little 5-10 192 Jr Schenectady County Community College (Schenectady, NY) 3.0 of 4.0 [Zone Coverage] ATH Matthew McQueen 6-1 176 Fr Gleason (Gleason TN) 2.0 of 4.5 [Man Coverage] FS Terrell Terry 5-10 194 Fr Sevier Country (Sevierville TN) 3.0 of 5.0 [Man Coverage] C Javorious Griggs 6-4 245 Fr Horatio (Horatio AR) 2.5 of 4.0 [Run Blocking] K Tamas Kovacs 5-11 175 (Jr) (Szekesfehervar Hungary) 3.5 of 4.5 [Accuracy] OG Anthony Street 6-5 286 Jr Gordon College (Barnesville GA) 3.5 of 4.0 [Run Blocking] Recruiting Ranking: 35th, 10th in the SEC  2022 Schedule and predictions: 6-4 (missing two OOC) OOC OOC Toledo At Florida Georgia At South Carolina At New Mexico State Missouri LSU At Ole Miss Kentucky At Tennessee Sadness Not too much to touch on here. Tyler Mackey really struggled, and it was a far cry to Adrian Goldson's freshman year, and the two are not miles apart in their own talent and what was surrounding them. They lose some super talented defenders in Lovelace and Dennis, but they have players coming down the pipeline that are more than capable of competing in the SEC. Kareem McGee will be missed for his consistent grinding running, with a new style of running coming in. This team might be a year or two out from their prime ability, and some growing pains are to be expected with so many young and inexperienced players starting. Hope This team is on the up and up, and with 2 very winnable OOC games and some SEC schools going in the opposite direction, Vandy has a good shot at bowling. Tyler Mackey has got some game experience, and serwendel will have a better understanding of his strengths and weaknesses in a game scenario. A strong offensive line will give him great protection and Owens-Hodges some great lanes to run through, and Mackey will have a 6-5 216 senior to throw to. The defense will be more underclassmen than upperclassmen, all with NFLHC talent and many freshmen with a chance to be high impact players, particularly the secondary duo of McQueen and Terry, and while the linebackers won't be the same level of 2020, they will still have plenty of ability. A very bright outlook for this team, and they are young across the board as we can see by only 3 key losses and 21 key players returning or coming in fresh. SEC look out. Feel free to give feedback or discuss the future outlook of Vanderbilt!
    8. Coming off a solid 7-6 season and a 9-6 victory in the Birmingham Bowl, Ole Miss lost pretty much all its star talent and expected a down year. That's exactly what they got, and vida stepped down as well, leaving this team in limbo. However, on the bright side, there has been significant interest in the Ole Miss job, and a new coach will be appointed in the near future. Record: 2-10 Results At Purdue (L 17-23) At Vanderbilt (L 13-14) At Indiana (L 17-19) At BYU (W 28-13) Alabama (L 30-21) South Carolina (L 35-10) At Arkansas (L 24-26) At Texas A&M (L 21-30) Auburn (L 38-7) UMass (W 14-48) At LSU (L 9-17) Mississippi State (L 42-10) Season Rundown The Good Not a lot went right for the Rebels, losing 4 games by 6 points or less and 7 by 9 or less, showing that at least they could play teams close, and some very good teams at that. They had 3 All-SEC players, Kahiau Afamasaga playing away from his natural Mike ILB spot at OLB earned First-Team honours which is a real credit to the talent of the young man, and FS Shane McCrary and P Antonio Burnette were a part of the Second-Team. When the offense was clicking they were really clicking, as against BYU, who have a more than respectable secondary, Justice Watkins went 22/33 for 300 yards on the dot and 3 touchdowns with no turnovers, and added 30 on the ground. The defense also managed to shut down the BYU offense, holding Jabari Sneed to 10/15 for 110 and an INT, and Joseph Saunders to 21/38/0 apart from a broken play where he went 88 yards for the touchdown. Against the much weaker UMass Watkins exploded for 355 all purpose yards and 4 TD, while Zaire Minor went 24/130/2. The Bad (and The Ugly) Where to start. While Afamasaga shined, Markus Golden was less than Golden. Having first-round-pick hype coming into the year, he really struggled, putting up 30 less tackles, 2 less TFLs, 1 less Sack and 2 less PDs than Kahiau did. Apart from that magical game at LaVell Edwards stadium, Justice Watkins had a rough transition from Junior College to Div 1 ball, putting up the second lowest QBR of SEC quarterbacks. Zaire Minor didn't fare much better as the lead tailback, running for 4.02 yards per carry and fumbling 4 times, which lead the SEC. The O-line put up the second worst average rating at 4.90 and allowed 29 sacks, tied for second most. They also had the second worst 3rd down conversion percentage. Statistically and on the field this team just couldn't get it done when it mattered, and it doesn't look to get much better next year. And then we get to Dylan Kemp: 12/20 on FG, and against Vanderbilt he missed a 43 yarder and against Indiana a 52 yarder. Granted, both of these are not easy kicks, but with a chance on going pro and giving Ole Miss a 3 game winning streak after a close to Purdue would have built a huge amount of momentum for this team, but alas, he missed them.

The Rebel D has some real potential, especially at linebacker, and a fantastic sophomore trio at DT-ILB-CB. Despite such a poor season and pretty lackluster recruiting in recent years, as previously mentioned there has been multiple candidates show their interest in taking over the Rebels. There is definitely enough talent here to win games, and recruiting will be much better even if the only things the coach-to-be brings is enthusiasm and activity. A smart coach will be able to get at least 4 wins out of this team, and bringing in a solid batch of 4.0s with the occasional star to shape the team's strengths will make this team competitive in a few years. Sadness Some major holes on this team, Center particularly stands out, and without a strong playmaker at RB or QB this team won't be lighting up any scoreboards in 2022 and for a few more years down the road. Recruiting has not been a strong suit for them either, committing no player higher than a 3.5 potential this class is not good, especially for an SEC school. The only bright spot from 2020 was Branden Valentine, with the rest again being under a 4.0 potential. Being in the SEC is never easy as the 1 predicted in-conference win shows. Thanks for reading everyone! If anyone has any suggestions or feedback I'd love to hear it! I will try to get one of these out per day, moving from the worst record to the best.

        So I switched midseason had 3 wins at Baylor but will get stuck with UNLVs recruit ranking?

      2. TazerMan


        I believe so because almost all of recruiting was finalised before midseason, PM Rome just to be sure.

      Top Edge or Top Interior Rusher

      From my short time on the sim I have seen more value from DEs (Parker Holmes, Alvis Brumm and the like) than DTs, most likely due to the quality of DT. Obviously DTs have a more hidden impact, but when you get a game breaker like Marlon Bailey (especially 2020) or Aaron Donald IRL it really improves your whole defense. For me at 95 overall I would prefer the DT, but at lower overalls I think I'd go the defensive end, as I have seen both Blitz and Contain ends rack up TFLs and Sacks. I think it is a toss up, and 3-4 vs 4-3 would be interesting because it would change if your DE is your primary pass rusher, and pass rush is second in value only to QB play imo.
