    1. [2020] Week #5 - FNF

      I don't even remember what changes I made to my defense, but apparently they worked! GG @Wonderbread
    2. [2020] C-USA Recruiting Commits

      Great hauls so far for quite a few teams! And this is even without some of our Stars. Curious to see how well we can finish out now that we're getting to actual battles and not just uncontested croots.
    3. [2020] Week #4 - TNF

      anxiously puts more points on all OL croots
    4. [2020] Week 3 MWC Players of the Week

      Does it work with waitresses, too? Asking for a friend.
    5. Old school games

      My favorite has always been X-Wing Alliance. For those who aren't familiar, it's basically Star Wars Combat Flight Simulator. There's an awesome main campaign that's like 60 missions long with tons of variety, and also an Instant Action-type mode where you can custom create a battle with like 200 different types of ships. Only downside is you need a joystick to play (haven't tested with a controller, so don't know if that works). I dream of the day they make a sequel or reboot.

    7. C-USA Week 2 Round-Up

      THEPATRIOT.COM: CONFERENCE USA'S PREMIER NEWS AND ANALYSIS SITE C-USA Weekly Round-Up: Week 2 THE GAMES: Florida Atlantic Owls 41 - 44 Kansas State Wildcats Houston Cougars 24 - 7 Marshall Thundering Herd UTEP Miners 21 - 28 Utah State Aggies East Carolina Pirates 34 - 31 Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Florida International Panthers 20 - 34 Memphis Tigers North Texas Mean Green 21 - 28 San Diego State Aztecs Old Dominion Monarchs 14 - 27 UNLV Rebels Southern Miss Golden Eagles 42 - 27 Rutgers Scarlet Knights Louisiana Tech Bulldogs 7 - 48 USF Bulls UTSA Roadrunners 0 - 30 #17 Georgia Bulldogs Rice Owls 24 - 31 (OT) #20 Kansas Jayhawks Byes: Middle Tennessee, Charlotte, UAB GAME OF THE WEEK: Florida Atlantic Owls 41 - 44 Kansas State Wildcats In the nation's first game of Week 2, Florida Atlantic traveled to Manhattan, Kansas, for what many anticipated would be a simple case of a P5 team paying a small school to come get crushed. The Owls had a different plan. Despite allowing over 300 passing yards to Rahim "I Am The Greatest" Murrell, randye4's new squad hung around until the end, forcing the Wildcats to come from behind in the final quarter to pull out a victory. The Owls were led by redshirt freshman running back Sean Parham's 109 yards and 2 TD and sophomore quarterback Gregory Crowder's 3 total touchdowns. OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: QB Riley West, WKU, 20 of 30 for 285 yards, 3 TD DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: LB Connor Hitchcock, MRSH, 1 INT, 8 Tackles QUOTES OF THE WEEK: "WKU looks scary" -Charlotte HC and C-USA Commissioner @Isaac829 "I AM THE GREATEST. BUT MY DEFENSE SUCKS." - Kansas State QB Rahim Murrell (@HAFFnHAFF) "Holy shit I did it!" - Utah State HC @ZackTyzwyz "That FAU Punter [sic] has a leg on him... Dang" - West Virginia HC @smckenz3 POWER RANKINGS: 1. Rice Owls (0-2) My conscience almost didn't let me put a winless team at #1, but after the last two seasons, Rice holds the benefit of the doubt for this spot until they lose a conference game. And if we're being blunt, most teams in this conference would kill to take a ranked P5 team to overtime on the road. 2. Southern Miss Golden Eagles (1-1) As the owner of the conference's only win through Week 2 (yes, seriously), USM gets ranked above everybody not named Rice by default. 3. Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (0-2) The Hilltoppers are rapidly becoming the Houston Rockets of CFBHC. Therefore, they get the three seed for now. 4. Florida Atlantic Owls (0-2) The Owls put up quite a fight against Big 12 team Kansas State, earning them a high spot in these rankings despite the loss. Coach @randye4, a legend from his time at Alabama, appears to already have his new rebuilding project ahead of schedule. 5-14. Everyone Else (mostly 0-2, some 0-1) Beyond that top four, it's still too close to make a meaningful call at this point. Marshall probably has the best chance of jumping out of this group, given their history the last two years, but it's all a mess for now. RECRUITING: Coming soon (Week 3)...
    8. Spotlight Tuesday #8

      *clears throat conspicuously* Other than Baylor, my dream-caliber schools would be OU, since I grew up a Sooner fan and loved going to games in Norman as a kid, and maybe Tulsa, since it's my hometown.
    9. [2020] Week #2 - TNF

      Looks like those two picks were the difference, but I'll live with it given he's a true freshman playing his first ever college game. Encouraging signs elsewhere, although my pass rush evidently needs some work. Barksdale is gonna be a beast this year.
    10. THEPATRIOT.COM: CONFERENCE USA'S PREMIER NEWS AND ANALYSIS SITE C-USA Weekly Round-Up: Week 1, Part 1 MEMPHIS 35 - 31 UTSA (Thursday Night, San Antonio, TX) -How It Went Down: In an exciting barnburner that thrilled until the final whistle, UTSA junior RB Elias Cameron opened the scoring early in the first quarter by powering up the middle for a 3 yard touchdown run. The teams traded scoring drives to end the first quarter with UTSA leading by a score of 14-7. Memphis countered with a flawless second quarter as redshirt sophomore running back Colin Putnam found paydirt twice, bookending a pick-6 by Tiger safety Amari Ragland. As the teams retreated to the locker rooms for halftime, it appeared that after their third unanswered touchdown, Memphis was starting to pull away. But, the Roadrunners fought back in the third as Luca Sorenson threw his second passing touchdown of the day and ran in another to tie the game at 28 heading into the fourth. Putnam's third touchdown of the contest then proved to be the decisive score, with the Tiger defense staving off a late UTSA rally. Sorenson finished 15 of 30 for 196 yards, with 2 passing touchdowns and another on the ground, an encouraging performance for the true freshman making his first career start. Look to see the talented Sorenson continue to improve as his career progresses. -Top Performances: RB Colin Putnam, MEM, 23 for 106 yards, 3 TD DE Jaylen Love, MEM, 2.5 Sacks, 5 Tackles RB Elias Cameron, UTSA, 21 for 94 yards, 1 TD -They Said It: "yikes defense pls" - Vxmonarkxv, MEM HC HOUSTON 35 - 14 LOUISIANA TECH (Friday Night, Ruston, LA) -How It Went Down: The Bulldogs started their first game of the season with a bang, as senior QB Lukas Shea hit 6'5" sophomore WR Jordan Hobson for a 6 yard touchdown pass to open the scoring. Unfortunatley for Tech, the rest of the night was all Houston. The Cougars struck hard and fast in the first half, controlling the game with a punishing rushing attack led by 200 lb power back Justice Womack, who racked up 93 yards and 2 touchdowns on 21 rushes. Houston QB Rickie Shaffer added 83 yards and the exclamation point fourth quarter touchdown on just 6 carries. A second quarter touchdown dive from a yard out was the only bright spot of the day for Bulldog freshman running back Ilan Lunsford, who consistently struggled to find gaps against the talented Cougar front 7. Shea finished 23 of 42 for 280 yards with a touchdown and a pick and looks to be the team's offensive leader going forward. -Top Performances: RB Justice Womack, HOU, 21 for 93 yards, 2 TD QB Lukas Shea, LT, 23 of 42 for 280 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT QB Rickie Shaffer, HOU, 14 of 24 for 188 yards, 1 TD; 6 for 83 yards, 1 TD -They Said It: "Logan Ware, INT return for TD; This is what I like to see" - noodlz2, HOU HC INDIANA 38 - 10 FLORIDA ATLANTIC (Friday Night, Boca Raton, FL) -How It Went Down: On a beautiful night in Boca Raton, the Owls led 3-0 after a 22 yard FG by Josue DeJesus for a beautiful 2 and a half minutes before everything went very downhill very fast as Indiana QB Adrian Rupp took over the game, throwing a 27 yard touchdown to Miguel Elias and scoring a 19-yarder on the ground before the end of the first quarter. By halftime, the score was 31-3 Hoosiers. Atlantic sophomore receiver Jeffrey Jorgenson scored the Owls' only touchdown of the night on a 74 yard punt return in the third quarter. Rupp finished with 4 total touchdowns, 2 in the air and 2 on the ground. -Top Performances: QB Adrian Rupp, IN, 20 of 29 for 240 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT; 5 for 48 yards, 2 TD RB Julian Early, IN, 24 for 103 yards, 1 TD RB Sean Parham, FAU, 25 for 94 yards -They Said It: *gif of dude in Jets jersey fist-pumping* - LDYo, IND HCs CHARLOTTE 7 - 30 USF (Saturday Morning, Tampa, FL) -How It Went Down: Bulls QB Daniel Lentz hit WR Claudio Howard for a 15 yard touchdown in the first quarter, and the rout was on from there. The 49ers struggled heavily in the pass game against USF, as true freshman QB Chris Billings threw for only 157 yards with 2 picks. Lentz, however, gashed the Charlotte defense for 277 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Charlotte defense fared much better against the run, holding USF to only 83 yards on the ground, but their effort meant little in the grand scheme of the game, as a fourth quarter safety to bring the score to 30-0 put an exclamation point on a dominant day by the Bulls defense. Billings connected with sophomore TE Jonathan Cason for a late 5 yard touchdown that provided the final margin. -Top Performances: QB Daniel Lentz, USF, 23 of 35 for 277 yards, 2 TD RB Johnny Taylor, USF, 18 for 83 yards, 2 TD DT James Blue, USF, 1 Sack, 1 Safety, 3 Tackles -They Said It: "we tried" - Isaac829, CHAR MIDDLE TENNESSEE 0 - 59 PENN STATE (Saturday Morning, State College, PA) -How It Went Down: Penn State is the #1 team in the country. It showed. -Top Performances: QB Tanner Bowman, PSU, 22 of 32 for 295 yards, 4 TD RB Ricky Vega, PSU, 23 for 128 yards, 3 TD CB Austin Sheppard, PSU, 1 INT, 2 Tackles, 1 TD -They Said It: "I expect nothing and I'm still let down" - shibe, MTSU HC OLD DOMINION 7 - 24 VIRGINIA (Saturday Morning, Charlottesville, VA) -How It Went Down: Once again, another C-USA team fought hard but simply couldn't keep up with a superior P5 opponent. The Monarchs' defense largely held the Virginia offense in check until a pair of rushing touchdowns by Reginald Sanders, the second set up by a Soldier Brooks fumble recovery, put the game out of reach in the Cavaliers' favor. Sophomore running back Isaiah Mitchell scored the Monarchs' first points of the season with a 4 yard touchdown run in the fourth. Rushing offense was one of the few bright spots for Old Dominion, as the team collectively averaged 4.93 yards per carry. -Top Performances: LB Soldier Brooks, UVA, 1 FF, 1 FR, 6 Tackles QB Matteo Rook, UVA, 23 of 38 for 303 yards, 1 TD WR Hunter Crenshaw, UVA, 5 for 77 yards, 1 TD -They Said It: "I don't think I'm upset" - KakesuSora, ODU HC

    13. Cade's Wild Idea for Site Improvement

      I'm a n00b, so take my opinions with a large grain of salt (and I apologize in advance if everything I say here is completely moronic), but I like the general concept. I think it might work best if "brands" consisted mostly of media companies as opposed to Nike/Adidas/etc. You could have people be owners of the brands, like the NFL and NHL teams, and then they hire reporters and other people to write or something for them. Maybe the brand makes a total income of some sort based on the quality and quantity of their work, like recruiting points or whatever, and then that's what's used to "pay" the employees of the brand. In addition to expanding the site's media stuff, it would also be a fun thing for people to do to stay involved during their offseasons. Just a thought.

      Apparently I got Mountain West stuff instead of C-USA, so I have been advised to ask for a change

    16. News . EL PASO, TX-- After a long search, UTEP officials announced Wednesday morning the hiring of TheTrain23 as the school's new football coach. Train was clearly excited to begin his tenure as a CFBHC head coach for the Miners, exclaiming "DRILL BABY, DRILL!" at the top of his lungs at the conclusion of the press conference. "I think we have a pretty good squad here," he continued, "and I'm excited to see what we can achieve together. I believe we can compete for a Conference Championship in year one, and win or lose, we'll always be a hard-fighting team. I'm looking forward to meeting the team and beginning our march to victory." TheTrain23's previous coaching experience includes 2 years as a defensive coordinator and safeties coach for the Baylor University Men's Choir Intramural Flag Football team, including a 2014 season in which BUMC's vicious pass rush and ballhawking secondary (almost) led the team to a Cinderella playoff bid, and a year as the head coach of the Baylor Running Club Intramural Flag Football team. Pundits have been somewhat split regarding the hire, with detractors pointing to his disastrous winless tenure at BRC. Others have been more enthusiastic, such as Lee Corso, who was quoted as saying "Not so fast! This guy has one adorable pet dog. That's good enough for me; I believe in him, and you should too." As of press time, Train is reportedly driving around the city to find all the best taco joints.
