    2018 CFBHC Midterm Special Election

    Making a poll of BBQ without Kansas City as a choice is absolute blasphemy. That would get you banned if you posted it on the wrong site.

    [2022] Week #2 - TNF

    Holy shit. I need to gameplan better or I'm losing every game by 40+ for the rest of the season.

    [2022] Recruiting Info

    @inspiral I have 2 recruits that still are not right. It seems like the instate doubling bonus is not taking effect on either one of them.
  4. Hey with this team i need as many wins as i can get. If i have to give up a few recruiting points to move up another tier then so be it.

    [2022] Recruiting Info

    My Instate and team need bonuses are not triggering either. The only thing that shows up for me is the scholarship, regular points, and instate doubling. Edit: @inspiral
  7. He did well considering he never has played in a game since 2020. Before the game he set a goal of a 50% completion rate and he accomplished that. As a coaching staff, we will keep hounding him to not make terrible decisions in the pocket but he will get much better as we continue down this season.
  8. WEEK 1 POST-GAME PRESS CONFERENCE: BYU The Cats keep it close but BYU broke enough big plays to win. I'll give props to anyone who can guess this player (83). Swipet: "Starting off, our team did a fantastic job in the first half. The offense was adapting to another defense after going against the same guys since January and i feel like we had the right game plan for them to take advantage. The defense played their asses off and if you take away the two long runs by the BYU running back, they would have held them to 10 points. That's a major improvement after last year. The reason we scheduled another team in the same talent ballpark as us for the first game of the season is to try to evaluate ourselves and see where we improved over the course of the off-season." "This game was a fantastic measuring stick for our team as they got to hit someone else instead of themselves for the first time in months and we found out some things that we would have not found out in practice. One random shout out to our assistant coaches as they just gave me the entire game analysis that tells me the good, the bad, and the ugly of today's game even before i walked into this room. Those five coaches bust their asses off in practice to find each players weakness and put that player in the worst situation possible in an effort to make their weaknesses stronger. It's no surprise to anyone that we still have a long ways to go and we will focus on those in preparation for Louisiana Lafayette. I will now answer any other questions that the media may have."

    Close one Memphis! Glad about how you almost pulled that one out but LSU came back and won it. Memphis is definitely a force in the American West this year.
  10. 2022 OFF-SEASON INTERVIEW SERIES: BAYLOR Will they win a game this season? Probably What is your teams biggest gain and loss going into the 2022 season? I think our biggest gain is experience. Both myself and the team. We are older at the skill positions and I think our offense will take a step forward. Our biggest loss is at OT. I'm not sure if we will be able to replace that this year but we will look to work around it. Looking at the schedule, what other team scares you the most? Scare is a strong word. The Big 12 is a gauntlet from front to back. TCU is an easy pick here but many of the teams will look to take a step forward this year with new coaches and improved rosters. Succeeding a Baylor legend like Tuscan can be a huge compliment and a massive task. How are you going to handle this? One game at a time. I'm sure I can't do that with one season but this season will definitely be a good gauge on whether I can live up to the Baylor Bear quality both in recruiting and in game planning Looking at your depth chart, there are some positions like MLB with 2 future NFLHC players and then you don't even have a 4th cornerback. How do you plan to balance this skill gap between positions? We will definitely look to rely on our strong linebacking core. It has been a strength for us last year and we will look for another great year. We are going to look to get after the QB and use our strengths to make things difficult. Finally, give us your teams record prediction and who is in the BigXII Title game. I think 8-5 with a bowl win would be a good goal for us. I think TCU and OK State in a rematch.
  11. 2022 OFF-SEASON INTERVIEW SERIES: IOWA STATE Can @Minnowsotan's team "Catch" up to the competition? Haha did you see what i did there? What is your teams biggest gain and loss going into the 2022 season? I would say our biggest gain was being able to recruit depth during the off-season. This off season Iowa State brought in the most recruits in school history filling the 22 graduating players from the previous year. This also transitions into our biggest loss, Despite us keeping Skill players in our QB Vaughn Sheppard, and Running back Kofi McCullough. We suffered a lot in our Offensive Line, We lost both of our offensive guards, our center, and our right tackle from graduation. We also saw the loss of ball-hawk David Tolliver. Most of the team is here but a lot of young guys are gonna have to step up this year to fill the gaps of our former players. Looking at the schedule, what other team scares you the most? Looking at the schedule I would have to say that TCU scares me the most, Iowa State has never in the history of the sim beat TCU. TCU is the only team that we are winless against in the Big 12. Its not going to be an easy match up this year either. TCU had a top 5 recruiting class and is in the process of having a national championship caliber team. It will take a lot to beat them but we have surprised teams before. How do you expect Vaughn and Kofi to perform this season after their freshman debut's? I expect great things out of Sheppard, he showed great promise as a true freshman and played better than any other freshman QB has played for ISU. Kofi McCullough is going to be a target for most teams' defenses and I cant blame them he was the recipient of the Big 12 Freshman of the year award, and he has improved from last year. Vaughn Sheppard will take most of the load off of him and help him lift that target off of McCullough's back. Being in Big10 country with Iowa and Nebraska down the road, how is it different recruiting against those schools that the rest of the conference will usually not compete with Big10 teams for recruits? Being in Big 10 country has posed some threats. This past year Iowa beat me fair and square in recruiting. Recruiting in Iowa is different because it's a small recruiting pool in Iowa, maybe in a good year a top of the line player comes from central Iowa. In Iowa two if not more teams fight over this small pool of players until only 3.5s and lower are left. Most of the recruiting it seems like teams flood these smaller markets and hope to stronghold the in state recruits from teams like Iowa and Iowa State. You are forced to defend your home turf. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not work. Finally, give us your teams record prediction and who is in the BigXII Title game. I would be happy if we saw improvement over last year coming off of a 3 win season it was disappointing considering all the talent we had. I see us going 8-4 or 7-6 at the least. I see TCU and Kansas battling it out in the Big 12 national championship
  12. 2022 OFF-SEASON INTERVIEW SERIES: WEST VIRGINIA Looks like @smckenz3 is teaching his defense how to tackle effectively What is your teams biggest gain and loss going into the 2022 season? It's hard not to answer this with the 14 pro potential guys we brought in during this recruiting cycle, however; I'll go with QB Martin Lake. Quarterback play was out weakest point last season, so having a guy with the talent of Lake should really get the team going in the right direction. I think our biggest loss will be RB Mohamed Mustafa. He was a 4 year starter at running back and filling his shoes is going to be difficult. Looking at the schedule, what other team scares you the most? Probably Missouri. I know they lost Dowden and Lattermore, but they have a really strong defense and a quarterback with a ton of talent. We're going to have to play our best game, which is a tall order for game one with new starters at every skill position. How do you think your team will respond after finishing in last place of the conference?I fully expect the team to continue down the path towards contention. We lost a lot of close games last year and I think we'll get some this season. Will your program finally get some consistency after the high of 2020 and the low of 2021?Yes - I think we all knew 2021 had the potential to be a difficult year if we had early declarations from 2020. We had a decent recruiting class in 2020 and a really good class last season so we're knocking on the door of contention again. We're going to do our best to bring in another good class this season, get the most of our our guys, and help them to play their best football. Finally, give us your teams record prediction and who is in the BigXII Title game. Obviously our goal is to make a bowl, so we're going to aim for that. We need our freshman to step up to make the possible. As far as the conference I think TCU and OU are the teams to beat right now.
  13. 2022 OFF-SEASON INTERVIEW SERIES: T.C.U "Put relevant caption here that fits the picture" What is your teams biggest gain and loss going into the 2022 season? Let’s start with biggest loss, because I think that’s an easier question to answer. I think that really has to be none other than free safety Matthew Dyson, who has moved on to the Bengals. He was a four year starter and an absolute staple of our roster, dating back to the 11-3 2018 team. He started in three Big XII championship games. The only players to ever do that are him and his teammates Adriel Sierra and Shamar Burroughs. While those are two losses as well, they’re somewhat mitigated by the amount of talent we have at each of those positions. At free safety, we have a young guy who I’m very excited about - Ian Worley - but he’s still got a lot to learn. Luckily the players surrounding him will have a lot of experience and hopefully he can get adjusted quickly. We’ll definitely be feeling the Dyson loss for a while, though. He was such a leader and an excellent player. As for our biggest gain, i don’t actually want to say who I’m thinking of because it’ll get to his head. *laughs* But it’s definitely Patrick Ross. I talk a lot about my players and I really try to sell them, but believe me when I tell you this - he’s the best player to enter this program since Daquan Darcey. On most other teams in the country, he’s going to be a number 1 corner and competing for awards. We get the luxury of playing him in the slot. Every day on the field he surprises us. He can run with Griff, he can high point balls over Finn, and he can tackle anyone. That being said, he does have a lot to learn as far as scheme goes. Physically, however, I’ve never seen anything like him. Looking at the schedule, what other team scares you the most? I think that has to be an easy choice, now doesn’t it? As much respect as I give the teams in the Big XII, it has to be Auburn. They’re simply loaded year in and year out and they will be a tough out. On top of that, we play them opening night so they’ll be difficult to prepare for. Marcus Black is the best player in the country and I see him winning the Heisman this year. That being said, I can’t wait for the game. Bright lights in an NFL stadium. The entire country tuning in. Starting the year off with the biggest game. It’s going to mean a lot. Luckily I learned last year that my guys don’t fold under pressure. They’ve been here before. They did it at USC. They did it against LSU. They did it in the Big XII championship. They did it in the playoffs. Hopefully they can do it again, but it won’t be easy. What kind of black magic do you perform to get those sweet sweet croots? Turns out that Horned Frog blood has some really interesting properties. Did you know they shoot it out of their eyes? Makes it easy to collect and then spike the recruits drinks with. But seriously, while I appreciate the complement, there’s no magic to it. I’ve said it before, but you have to find a way to sell your program. Make it a place that players want to play. Find guys who are getting overlooked and bring them on board. Generate excitement. Even when I got here and we weren’t a winning program, I made TCU a place players wanted to play. Alex Engram was a star in our wildcat offense. We were 4-8 but a damn fun team to watch. Now we’ve evolved past that. Now we’re winning so we don’t need the gimmicks. Now players come here because they’ve seen what people before them have done and they know that in this system they can succeed too. Continuity in coaching helps a significant amount in that regard. If you were to suddenly become the coach of another team and you had to play TCU, how would you game plan against a team thats oozing with talent? Ha ha. Well, wouldn’t you like to know? Editors Note: Yes please In reality, I wouldn’t worry too much about the game plan at all. Don’t get me wrong, it does matter. The problem is that when you’re facing a team without many holes, there’s nowhere to gameplan to and exploit. You can’t spend the whole week trying to think of ways to trick the other team and outscheme them. When you play talented, disciplined players, that simply won’t work over the course of 60 minutes. So what do you do? Focus on execution. Play your game. The one you know and have worked on all summer. Yeah, you can throw some wrinkles in there, but at the end of the day football comes down to who makes the plays and you have to make sure that your team is ready to do that. Finally, give us your teams record prediction and who is in the BigXII Title game. I really hate this question because I know what I want to say, you know what I want to say, and I know I’ll sound bad for saying it. But I’m going to predict 12-0. We’re a better team than we were last year when we went 11-1. If we get past Auburn, we’ll be in really good shape. I’m sure we can stumble somewhere along the way, but I have a confidence in this team that I haven’t had in any before. As for the Big XII title game, I think we’ll be seeing another rematch against Oklahoma State. They’re good. Texas will be good soon. Oklahoma is probably good now. But Oklahoma State already knows how to win and that will take them a long way.
  14. 2022 OFF-SEASON INTERVIEW SERIES: TEXAS TECH Solomon is back and that makes @acewulf happy What is your teams biggest gain and loss going into the 2022 season? Without a doubt, our biggest loss this offseason is Chase Shapiro. While he never was really a guy to set the world on fire through the air, his leadership and poise will definitely be missed as we try and find the answer to replace him under center. We like a lot of our younger guys, but his dual threat ability at times will definitely be missed this season. Our biggest gain is one of 2 guys. Both JUCO transfers. One on either side of the ball. Samir Sample and Graham Beck are easily the biggest additions for the Red Raiders this season. Beck brings one of the biggest receiving threats for the Raiders since Eugene Sanders. We hope his older leadership will help us as we transition to a new QB this season. A huge position of need, we were incredibly excited to see him favor us in JUCO. And the most versatile player we got in JUCO is the smaller Defensive End, Samir Sample. We love his size and fit for him next to our other star DE Curtis Jones. We are also experimenting with him as a pass rushing LB to try and get more nasty pass rushers on the field curing those crucial 3rd downs. We're incredibly excited for both of these guys. Looking at the schedule, what other team scares you the most? Not going to lie, half the conference scares me at times. I've kinda gotten to be an anxious coach at times and this season is no exception. The conference didn't send too much talent to the league, but that's because they're all still here! I can't really pinpoint one specific team because so many teams on my schedule are scary. Just way too much talent here. Make them all graduate already and let me keep my guys  What is the absolute maximum thing you will do to keep Solomon in 2023? On the field, we just need to win baby. Keeping Solomon is not going to be easy, but if we can win a lot and keep him happy and interested in playing in Lubbock, I think we can convince him to stay. But I will say, he's had a lot of carries in his time here. I actively encourage him to go chase his dreams and get those checks. He's playing on Sunday and I couldn't be happy for him, even if he goes early. He deserves it hands down. In this last week, there has been a viral video of a man fornicating with freshly made tortillas in the Mission tortilla factory and you have been rumored to be the person? Any comments on that? I plead the 5th. Finally, give us your teams record prediction and who is in the BigXII Title game. I don't have a hard schedule prediction, but I can see us winning a few games we shouldn't on paper. I'd look for us to finish somewhere in the middle of the conference and to make another bowl game. This is a fairly talented and older, experienced team. If everything gels, this could be a fun season with plenty of things to be excited about as a Red Raider fan! If I had to predict it, TCU is a heavy favorite to make the title game. So its hard to vote against them. Texas, OU and OSU are all fairly talented teams. If I had to pick one of those, its hard to not pick against OU. They lost some big pieces, but with those Offensive pieces its hard to pick against them. Not going to pick a winner though. TCU-OU for the title game. Wish I could homer it up and say Texas Tech, but there's just too much talent around the conference for us to be in there.
