    1. "I'm proud to say that Ohio University will participate in the Bahamas Bowl against Marshall University. This team has put in the effort to get to this point and while they've hit some bumps, the boys finished with wins over Army and Miami-Ohio. You look back at the regular season, all five losses were by single digits. That also tells me we have a bit to work on and this game is a perfect opportunity. We're going into this game with something to prove, that Ohio hit a short-term snag and will be back to challenge for the MAC title in 2022. I'm pleased with what I saw from a guy like Austin Lowe against Miami. He did a great job leading the offense, and the third-down conversions were critical. Dwayne certainly made it easier for Austin to have a great day. Made some great catches, hauled in a touchdown. Defensively, I thought we could've done a better job rattling Cera's cage a bit, but that kid has stones. He had great plays for them in leading his team to a near comeback on us. Our defense has to do a better job shutting down the opposition and break their will. Penalties were also a problem on the day. We've got to cut down the mental miscues going forward. I hope to see that number drop in this game. Marshall is a fine team with a well-balanced offense. We'll have to keep an eye on Brandon Adler with his ability to use his feet when necessary and he's created touchdowns because of it. Cayden Gipson's a hoss that our defense is looking forward to going up against. And Shawn Cortez is one of the most talented linemen in the country. It's tough to go up against a guy like that at center. On their defense, Bradley Watts is a tough kid that could create problems for the interior of our front five. Without a doubt, I've been focused on the secondaries for this team, especially a kid like Kevin Faulkner being out of the Birmingham area like myself. He and Riley Goldberg will be a match-up nightmare for our perimeter. It'll be key that Jeffrey get his motor going early and often. Overall, the trip will be a nice getaway for the guys and a great final trip for a senior class that has done so much for Ohio and the Athens community. It'll be a lot of fun but we're also down there to work and see progress from the future while sending these guys out with a win to end their careers." Ohio Media Relations: "We'll take questions for Coach...."

      [2021] Week #16 - FNF

      Postgame interview with AD3378. Sideline reporter: "Coach, you decided to stay out of the preparation for this game and let the staff handle it. What did you think of the team's performance today?" AD3378: "I'm very happy for these kids, especially the seniors who will hopefully get to play in a bowl game to close out their seasons, but this is awesome. These guys wanted this game so badly and damnit they earned it. Gonna have to work on the penalties a bit but the important thing is them enjoying this win right now. The assistants did a hell of a job getting the boys ready for this one. It makes me that much more excited to oversee this program."

      Ohio HC Introduction

      AD3378: "Good to meet you, Dave. I know there were many people down south surprised I didn't end up at a place like Troy or Georgia State. Fact is, I love my home and the advantages living there but I felt this was too good of an opportunity to pass up. Like Florida, Georgia, and Alabama, Ohio is a state known to be rich with high school talent. You also have Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Illinois to work with as well. Couple that with the recent success, it just made sense. I like a challenge but I can't just look a gift horse in the mouth."
    5. Ath. Director: "I want to welcome you here today as we introduce our newest addition to the Bobcat family. As some of you know, AD3378 has experience as a head coach the last seven years at West Alabama in Division II. He also spent time as a tight ends coach and assistant head coach in the FCS and FBS ranks for nine years prior. He'll be hitting the ground running with the bowl season around the corner and getting prepared for the Class of 2022-23 recruiting campaign and the 2022 schedule. Let me now introduce you to Coach AD3378. Coach..." AD3378: "Thank you. I want to thank the Ohio University administration for taking a chance on a kid from a small town just outside of Birmingham, Alabama. I also want to thank the fans that have greeted me warmly in the last couple days. Hopefully, I have just as friendly a relationship with you guys. I'm excited to be in Athens and be a part of a program that has had admirable success with a MAC championship a few seasons ago and three straight trips to the MAC championship game. Clearly, the Bobcat fans have come to expect a high quality from their team and I follow suit in that mindset. I will do my damnedest to have a turnaround in 2022 that takes us on a path back to the conference title game. Regardless, I hope that fans will not feel that I'm just here to use Ohio as a quick stepping stone to the power conferences. While I will always will look to advance my career, my main goal is to build a solid foundation for Ohio to succeed for many years even after I've left. Let me clarify that while I have been hired to take over head coaching position, I have not disrupted the gameplan for this week's regular season finale against Miami. I will be 100% hands on with the team beginning immediately following that game leading into what will hopefully be a bowl bid. In the rest of this week, I'll be evaluating the roster and determining the best course for next season while planning to eventually implement the style I personally want to build this program around. Thank you for your time." Ohio Dir. of Media Relations: "We'll now take any questions members of the media may have for Coach." .........

      1. Please list your email address and/or your reddit username at which you can be contacted. aaron.daniel1987@gmail.com 2. Before continuing, please thoroughly read the coaching course and feel free to ask questions. Confirm that you have read the coaching course by writing "Confirmed" below. Confirmed 3. What team do you want to coach? Ohio Bobcats 4. Please select two backup teams (in descending order of preference) in case your first choice is unavailable. Troy Trojans Georgia State Panthers 5. In three or more sentences, tell us a little about yourself. How old are you, what do you do, where are you from, why would you be a good fit here, etc. I work in sports radio covering high school football in Alabama. I'm from the Birmingham area about to move from one apartment to another. I've always loved college football and wanted to participate in a good sim. 6. This site can be as time consuming as you want it to be. Weekly duties can be completed in 30 minutes or less, however interacting with your fellow players throughout the week makes it more enjoyable for most people. Approximately, how much free time do you have during a typical week? I usually have a spare hour or two at work Mon-Fri plus any time at home that I'm not on iRacing. Weekends vary depending on if I have a prior commitment. 7. Losing games is an inevitable reality on this site, especially when accepting newer teams. Do you believe you can handle losing? Disappointment is expected, however we have had issues with people freaking out, and even leaving the site because of losing. Losing comes with the territory, especially starting at a small school and being new to the game. 8. How did you find out about this site? If recommended by a friend, please post his/her username. Found it while on Google searching Wolverine Studios' Draft Day sims.

      I appreciate the welcome. May wait until the off-season to jump on a small school then.

      Introductions

      Hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend. I'm from the Birmingham, AL area. I graduated from UAB with a Mass Comm degree (big mistake) but have supported Alabama my whole life (Roll Tide). I'm also involved in iRacing. Just want to start out as an unofficial assistant/coordinator for someone's college team and learn the game better that way before diving in. I have played Bowl Bound before but it's been a while and it was short lived. More interested in this sim from what I've looked at so far.
