      Connecticut Huskies Introduce New Head Coach

      So how many QBs will your team roster next season? 13? 17? 28? 59?

      Connecticut Huskies Introduce New Head Coach

      alexfall862 here from the Orlando Sentinel; UConn fans are used to seeing their famous "24 rostered QBs and a couple YMCA members" offense trudge down the field. Can fans expect a scheme change from previous coaching staffs?

      Possible FCS Expansion Discussion

      If a user could coach two teams at a time, which exist in a recruiting universe that (at least partially) contains the same recruits, couldn't they use one of their team's recruiting budgets as a tool to damage their other teams competitors? (e.g. Driving up the recruiting cost of JuCo recruits to other schools by using the full FCS recruiting budget to up the commitment cost)

      AAC Players to Watch in 2022

      AAC Players to Watch in 2022

      List was made blind from skill and potential. One TE slot and he had a lower yards per catch. FWIW, he did make the list, though! "Cotter was second to Temple's Garrett Taylor in catches and yards as a TE"
    10. Today we're looking at players to watch in the AAC in 2022. Each team in the conference is represented at least once! even Tulane... *Editor's note: Interacting, liking, and sharing this content is what fuels participation on this site, and also encourages the author to continue making content in this style... wink, wink, nudge, nudge. QB Isaiah Best 6-4 199 (So) Scrambling 3158 yards, 66% completion, 27 TD 4 Int 55 carries, 388 yards, 5 rush TD Isaiah Best is the... best... in the league at keeping the ball safe, while directing a dynamic Navy offense that led the league in points. Best has two more years left, but there is a possibility we'll see him in the pros before his Senior year. QB Rickie Shaffer 6-0 200 (Jr) Scrambling 2548 yards, 59% completion, 17 TD 14 INT 39 carries, 233 yards, 2 TD Houston's offense sputtered this season, and part of that could be drawn direclty to Rickie Shaffer's turnover fetish. That said, we expect Rickie to reduce the turnovers with another year under his belt, and he should lead a resurrection of the Cougar's attack in 2022. RB Stephen Cunningham 5’11 194 (Fr) Power 226 carries, 1193 yards, 11 TD An argument could be made the SMU's run game benefited from the gravity of Webb slinging the ball over the front seven, but we'll find out for sure come 2022 with their (likely) All-Conference QB leaving for the professional league. Cunningham led all underclassmen in yards, and will be the focal point of SMU's offense next season. A player to watch and a dark-horse Heisman contender if Houston's offense can find enough balance to lighten the burden. RB Etano Wendt 5-9 194 (So) Speed 225 carries, 1176 yards, 15 TD Wendt is half of the dynamic underclassmen duo / law firm / TNT crime drama, Spillman and Wendt. Etano led the conference in yards per game this season, and there's no reason to think he won't repeat in his Junior year with a weak Memphis receiving core losing Elijah Myrick. Look for Wendt to seriously contend for All-Conference honors next season with SMU's Cunningham as the two best backs in the league. WR Gavin Faulk 6-2 200 Jr Target 74 rec, 1095 yards, 15 TD Gavin had a HUGE season this year, leading the conference in catches, yards, and touchdowns - all without a single dropped pass. UConn doesn't have a lot going for it, but if Faulk doesn't declare early, the AAC may have another Heisman contender lurking in the dregs of the conference standings. WR Angelo Lemus 6-5 224 (Fr) Target 55 rec, 905 yards, 7 TD Angelo didn't grab a majority of passing targets for SMU, but he made them count when the ball came his way. Leading the league with 16.5 ypc, Lemus should battle for the #1 spot in spring ball. Look for reduced efficiency, but a higher workload as he becomes a key cog in the SMU offense under a Beard/Pappas/Burden helmed crew. WR Jared Talbert 6-0 209 Fr Target 59 rec, 919 yards, 12 TD Paired with Leon Burris, Talbert is the more talented of ECU's underclassmen receiving corps. With hot-shot recruit Kyler Wilson coming off a practice squad MiP, we should expect big numbers from all of ECU's skill players, but none more than Talbert. WR Mordechai Caron 6-5 223 So Target 28 rec, 304 yards, 2 TD Well, somebody has to hold onto the ball in the Tulane offense, and if it's going to be anyone, it's going to be Mordechai. Losing 10/11 starters and 7 seniors off the two-deep from the most putrid offense in the league doesn't bode well for overall production, but expect Mordechai Caron to jump out as a bright spot once again next season... relatively speaking. TE Rafael Cotter 6-0 224 (Fr) Blocking 46 rec, 743 yards, 8 TD In 2021, 'Rafi' showed us that despite his squat build, he does have the capacity to flash the big play. Rumor has it he and QB Best are... best... buddies. Cotter was second to Temple's Garrett Taylor in catches and yards as a TE, and with his newfound QB/TE rapport, Cotter should lead the all conference TEs in yards and scores in 2022. DE Bryan Dotson 6-4 253 So Blitz 41 Tackles, 9 TFL, 10.5 Sacks Once again, UConn doesn't have much to brag about on the scoreboard, but that doesn't mean there haven't been bright spots on the field. UConn fielded one of the top 3 worst defenses in the conference, but that wasn't due to Dotson. With 10.5 sacks and a conference leading 9 TFL, Bryan Dotson forced offenses to gameplan around him. With other talent maturing on the defense, and more roster space devoted to not-QBs, perhaps Dotson can help the UConn defense turn things around. DE Arthur Gorman 5-10 261 (So) Blitz 41 Tackles, 6 TFL, 10.5 Sacks Despite his small stature, Gorman combined with Justice Glenn to put tremendous pressure on opposing QBs both in the conference and out. Gorman's sits at a squat 5-10, so while his professional prospects may be limited to situational pressures, expect to see Gorman all over the field at USF. DT Kahau Aveau 6-0 281 So 1-Gap 42 Tackles, 5 TFL, 12.5 Sacks If there was ever a candidate for another Ndamakong Suh-styled Heisman race, Kahau is it. A true sophomore last year, he created enough interior rush pressure to not only lead all DTs in sacks, but gave SMU's secondary flocks upon flocks of ducks to feast upon. With Dobbins graduating, Kahau will likely see more double teams in 2022. Don't expect that to impact his productivity. A top ten NFL pick kind of talent . DT Devon Brinson 6-0 308 (So) 1-Gap 31 Tackles, 5 TFL, 5 Sacks Part of a defensive line made entirely of underclassmen, Brinson acquitted himself well, with 5 TFL and 5 sacks. If Kahau hadn't demolished the conference's guards and haunted their nightmares, Brinson would have an arguable claim as the best tackle in the conference. Look for the entire UCF line, but especially Brinson, to explode next season with some experience and training table time under their belt. OLB Omari Bowden 6-0 227 So Blitz 33 Tackles, 3 TFL, 3 Sacks Penalized by an offense that bore the worst 3rd down conversion percentage in the conference (and possibly the nation) at 28%, the Cincy D was never put in a situation to succeed. With an entirely freshman cornerback corps (!), opponents didn't lack for open receivers, but Bowden still grabbed 3 sacks to go along with 3 TFL in the run game. Expect the Bearcatscubs D to grow into one of the better units in the conference in a couple years. Bowden will be a big part of the reason why. OLB Mohamed Mims 5-11 220 (So) Coverage 37 Tackles, 3 TFL, 2 Sacks, 2 Ints Bouyed by a duo of strong edge rushers, USF's defense was the strongest at defending the pass in the conference. Not only did opponents have to plan for Gorman and Glenn, but Mims charted out as the best linebacker in coverage in the AAC in 2021. With all three returning next year and a little luck on offense, USF may contend for a surprise playoff spot. ILB Vicenzo Hickey 6-1 210 (Jr) Will 65 Tackles, 4 TFL With a beleaguered offense and not much support surrounding him, Vicenzo Hickey managed to find his way to the ball on almost every play. Out of prospect factory Garden City CC in Kansas, Hickey has one thing on his mind - the draft. He's not quite there yet, but with 2 years of high performance and a little improvement in the pass game, Hickey might be the first LB taken off the board in next offseason's draft. ILB Jordan Stallings 6-0 239 (So) Will 58 Tackles, 2 TFL, 3 Ints, 5 Pass Def Stallings... stalled... opponents interior passing game this season. 5 pass deflections not only led all linebackers, but was second in the conference among all defensive players, short of UConn's FS Chance Finney. Stallings is no slouch in the run game either, and we can expect the Temple defense to really shine in the next several years with Stephen Daniel provided a helping hand in the box as well. CB Bryan Cunningham 6-1 170 (So) Zone Coverage 19 Tackles, 7 INT, 1 TAINT A bit of a gambler, Bryan Cunningham tied for the lead in interceptions this season, but didn't record a single pass defensed. With Navy's offense firing on all cylinders, that wasn't much of an issue. DE Abdoulaye Hannah and most of the front seven won't be back next season, so look for the interception numbers to drop as coaches look to lean on the secondary to control opponents pass game. Cunningham is also one of 3 players in the conference to return a pick for a touchdown. CB Adam Young 5-9 188 (Jr) Man Coverage 11 Tackles, 7 INT, 4 Pass Def, 1 TAINT He doesn't have the stature to show it, but Adam Young has a strong claim to being the best corner, statistically, in the conference. Two things draw doubts about Young's performance in 2022. Opponents won't likely be be forced into so many track meets next season, and opponents can game-plan away from him with his compatriots in the secondary graduating. Pay attention to Young next season, as he goes, so will SMU's defense. CB Eli Richmond 5-10 172 (So) Man Coverage 8 Tackles, 5 INT One of the reasons Memphis went bowling this season is that Eli Richmond kept giving the young offense second chances. With an exciting offense, Memphis' opponents needed to rely on turnovers and grinding out their offensive possessions. Richmond is the unsung hero of Memphis' season. Plan on any of the three between Cunningham, Richmond, or Young to vie for the title of best CFBHC corner next season. FS James Munnerlyn 6-2 218 (Jr) Zone Coverage 28 Tackles, 5 INT, 4 Pass Def The captain of a UCF defense that didn't field a single senior, Munnerlyn erased other player's mistakes all season. We can expect big things from James next season, along with CB's McAllister and Bruce, in a rangy and athletic UCF secondary. Don't be surprised if UCF leads the conference in pass defense next season. SS Stephen Daniel 5-10 193 (So) Man Coverage 21 Tackles, 2 INT, 4 Pass Def A former 5 star recruit, Daniel has lived up to the hype, and as an upperclassman he should post one of the better seasons for an AAC safety in recent memory. Paired with LB Jordan Stallings, it's not outside of the realm of possibility for Temple to throw a couple shutouts on out of conference foes in 2022. K T.J. Bendbrook 5-9 182 (Jr) Power 29/29 XP, 18/20 FG, 55 yard long T.J. has been "Bendbrooking it like Beckham" sorry since the first game of 2021. With a long of 55, and only two missed kicks between 13 40+ yard attempts, T.J. expands Cincinnati's field of play and puts a lot of pressure on opposing defenses to limit yardage. P John Munson 5-11 175 (Jr) Accuracy 41.45 Punt Average Another Kansas recruit haunting around Philly, Munson posted the best punt average of any non-senior player this season. He'll likely return to lead the conference in his senior year. KR William Amos 6-0 176 (Jr) Speed 577 Combined Return Yards, 1 TD "Not-yet-famous Willie Amos" may not see the field much on the offensive end just yet, especially being overshadowed by a generational talent above him on the depth chart, but he put Houston in great spots, despite a defense that gave up the most non-Tulane yardage of anyone in the AAC. What will happen in 2022? Which one of these candidate will win OPOY and DPOY in 2022? Vote in the poll above. @Captin_Blue@SquidLoops@noodlz2@YEEZY@Time@Vxmonarkxv@Weeze56m@Yellow_Evan@TheTodd15@alienufo

      [2021] Bowl Games - Day #5

      In my last act as acting head coach, I ban Devon Seals from campus.
    13. Well, I'll have you know that while there are more teeth on an Mississippi athletic director than there are recruits from Wyoming - what they lack in quantity, they make up for in also not having talent.
