    [2022] Week #1 - TNF

    Way to go Arkansas State!
  2. In this series, we here at the Sun Belt Media Team will be going over every Sun Belt team as we approach the start of the 2022 season. Today we have the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns! A year in Review The 2021 season started off slowly for the Ragin Cajuns under Coach Kenny, losing two of their first three games, which resulted in the school firing the rookie head coach. Another rookie head coach, Dr_Novella, was brought in and quickly brought discipline to the locker room, creating a nearly unstoppable team that went on to win the first Sun Belt Conference Championship and play in the Alabama Bowl, where they lost to a very good Toledo team 45-10. Key Losses: QB Jacory Colon 6-2 204 Sr Catholic (New Iberia, LA) 3.5 of 3.5 [Hybrid] CB Malik Smith 6-1 168 Sr North Central (Lebeau, LA) 4.5 of 4.5 [Zone Coverage] RB Anthony Lavigne 5-8 183 Sr Bunkie (Bunkie, LA) 3.0 of 3.0 [Power] OT Mitchell Todd 6-1 293 Sr Oak Forest Academy (Amite, LA) 3.5 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] DT Darren James 6-2 277 Sr Sebring (Sebring, FL) 3.5 of 3.5 [1-Gap] Key Newcomers: RB Ryan Adams 5-7 202 Fr J.S. Clark (Opelousas LA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Power] WR Odel Malone 6-2 205 Fr Iraan (Iraan TX) 1.0 of 3.0 [Target] OG Adam Judd 6-2 305 Fr Woodsboro (Woodsboro TX) 1.0 of 3.0 [Run Blocking] CB Dontarrious Banks 5-10 182 Fr Huntsville (Huntsville AL) 1.0 of 3.0 [Man Coverage] TE Eric Galloway 6-2 215 Fr Mandeville (Mandeville LA) 1.5 of 3.0 [Blocking] NFLHC Potential players on the roster: DE Thomas Newsome 6-2 267 So Interlachen (Interlachen, FL) 2.5 of 4.5 [Contain] OLB Jeff Evans 5-11 221 Jr West Jefferson (Harvey, LA) 3.5 of 4.0 [Coverage] FS Kelly Cordero 6-2 180 Jr Mt. Juliet Christian Academy (TN) 3.0 of 4.5 [Man Coverage] SS Dustin Nowak 5-9 182 Jr St. Frederick (Monroe, LA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Zone Coverage] Ranking Units: Strengths: Defense. This unit was one of the best in the Sun Belt last season, and it will be a major focus again this year. Wide Receivers: Louisiana Lafayette has three WRs who are elite for this level of play. Led by Tyus Whitaker, this group will provide coach Dr_Novella with many gameplanning options, particularly if he chooses to spread the field and try to open up the defense. Add in TE George Green and you have more options than sophomore QB Emory West will know what to do with. Running the football: RB Raymond Herrera looks to be a very solid workhorse back, and the Cajuns need him to be. Weaknesses: Offensive line: The Cajun offensive line is not awful, but it’s not particularly good either. This line will be asked to protect a young QB who may not be very quick to get rid of the football. Recruiting: Coach Dr_Novella didn’t pull in an elite recruiting class in 2021. As a result, this team has lost more talent than it has replaced, and it will have a difficult time duplicating last year’s success. Kicker: Freshman Vaughn Hudgins is completely untested and will be the starting kicker in 2022. His reliability and power are both in doubt. Schedule and Predictions: at Virginia Kansas State Eastern Michigan Bye at UNLV Appalachian State Bye at Georgia Southern Troy at South Alabama Texas State Bye at Coastal Carolina at Arkansas State UL-Monroe Bye A pair of virtually impossible games to open the season, then a pair of very difficult games virtually guarantee the Cajuns an 0-4 start. Finally a conference matchup with Appalachian State brings relief and the first game ULL will be favored in. A trip to Georgia follows, and anybody who survives that massacre will play Southern, which should be a nice OOC win. Then a pair of very tough Sun Belt opponents in South Alabama and Texas State, and a rivalry game with UL-Monroe to close out the year. This schedule does no favors and takes no prisoners. Final Prediction: 7-6 Anonymous Coaches Thoughts: “Reigning champs and should be in the mix again. Solid D.” “The defense is young but talented, could become the best in the Sun Belt in a year or two. Okay offense, nothing special. "Okay" might be enough to challenge for the conference title.” “A high base level of talent across the board compared to the rest of the conference is a huge plus, with a potentially very stingy defense and a competent enough offense will help the conference champions have a second shot.”

    @JustinQuan You're approved for the Georgia State Panthers! Request here (politely) for Georgia State's logo as your avatar picture. Once your account has been elevated you will gain access to the private conference subforum. We have just begun the 2022 season of CFBHC. Your 2022 roster can be seen here. Place your depth chart here; if you are not sure to how to properly format the chart, look here. Make sure to request an account on the interface, that's where we handle gameplanning and recruiting (Make sure to choose CFBHC, not CBBHC!). Recruiting is usually done during the first half of the season, so you'll definitely want to read up on how that works. You are expected to maintain Georgia State's Wiki page. If you are inexperienced with wiki editing, that's OK, message me and we'll figure it out together. You are also responsible for individual season pages for each year. You can use Washington's 2022 season page as an example there. Feel free to PM me with any questions regarding this. If you have any further questions, concerns, or comments don't hesitate to ask in the chat or message me directly. There's a lot to catch up on, coach, and the season is already underway! Recruiting is in it's first week, and you need to have your points in by Saturday! This week is by far the most important week in the process, so don't miss it! Also, because this sim requires timely interaction, be aware that if you are inactive for 14 consecutive days or fail to perform recruiting duties for your school for two weeks during the season that can be grounds for losing your team. Welcome to and to !

    We'd love to have you at Troy, if I can convince you to give the Sun Belt a shot.

    [2022] Week #0 - Saturday Evening

    Not what I expected from our gameplan. Hmm. Not that I expected to win, but definitely expected Francis Brown to get more than 2 receptions. Good game, Spartans.

    The problem at UK is that Kentucky is a recruiting graveyard, Ohio is even worse, so some Ohio schools will invade even though there's almost nothing in-state to claim. Tennessee isn't a bad place to have on the border, but you'll be hard pressed to top 6 wins playing in the SEC, which means you don't have the points you need to compete out of state. I feel like you could eventually build success there, and maybe I was closer than I gave myself credit for, but still it's a double whammy of poor recruit density and incredibly tough conference opponents. If that wasn't bad enough, Broletariat at Louisville is a formidable opponent who pretty much has to be on your schedule every year. You get one year of McManus. You have a solid RB/WR combo. Your defense isn't total garbage. If you can get two good recruiting classes in while you have talent on the roster, you should be able to build a roster that will be competitive (after 1-2 rebuilding years) as long as you're more patient than I was. Good luck.

    And you went from "tough" to Kentucky. Should've asked me first, I went from UK to here because I wasn't getting it done at UK, recruiting-wise.
  13. rabidsnowman


    You're always welcome back in the Sun Belt if you don't get the UK job.
  14. Can I get some confirmation on when the first week of recruiting is due?  I've asked about 47 times in the shoutbox, I only get "I think" answers.
