  3. AD3378: "I think you can tell by the grin on my face just how I'm feeling right now. Doesn't get much better than that, does it? This is the 60-minute performance I've been looking for since I arrived. Specifically, the defense was phenomenal for us. Holding any team under 200 yards is always a recipe for wins. The turnovers were also critical. I always want our goal to be stopping the run. We did a fairly good job of that tonight. The biggest thing I'm proud of is pitching a shutout in the second half considering we've struggled in the back half of games most of the time. Offensively, this was as good as it gets on the ground. Jeffrey brought it tonight with his play, and I'm excited for him. I think he's going to have a lot more fun going forward in conference play. Once again, Austin's showing the country why he's one of the better young QBs by not turning the ball over. Very efficient game from him tonight. He was comfortable in the pocket, and that's helpful to his success. Great crowd tonight to support our boys. I don't need to remind our fans how much they mean to us in these home games. We have only one in the next five games. I'm excited for the conference slate moving forward. I think our team showed just what we're capable of when at our best and the type of damage we can do in the MAC this year. I'll take questions." Reporter: "Bobby Shaw, BobcatAttack.com. Coach, your team has had penalty issues in your two losses on the season. How much of a factor was limiting the flags?" AD3378: "I think it's always critical to limit mistakes. Don't get me wrong, there are times when a penalty is the result of just playing hard and getting a bad break. That happens. But to make sure we're not shooting ourselves in the foot is big. Only giving up two turnovers on the season is a great feeling for us as well. Now, I'd like for us to create some turnovers but limiting the mistakes is the more important of the two. We want our offense to give themselves a chance to have plenty of scoring opportunities while also not putting our defense into a bind by giving the ball away and having our opponents start on our half of the field. In terms of penalties, same rules apply. We don't want to put our quarterback in a lot of 3rd and long scenarios, and we don't the defense giving their offense cheap yards and first downs.

    [2022] Week #6 - FNF

    We finally got it to click. Even on defense. Quick question though. Why is Elias Glenn listed twice? @Soluna

    [2022] Week #6 - TNF

    @ecnirp bringin it. Good grief, that's a little worrisome.
  6. Good stuff. I'm hopeful this is the week it fully comes together, but there could still be some tweaking on defense.
  7. AD3378: "Hahaha. Yeah, I guess my mind left me there. Yes, we're preparing for Damani. Looking forward to the challenge."
  8. AD3378: “Hope everyone is well. MAC play starts this week. Just want to start off by saying that Ball State has played admirably thus far. They picked up a big win over Kent State last week to start their league play. I was particularly impressed with Damani Lewis. He was great for them all night. I think the biggest headache we’ll experience will be from Steven Moya. You saw how poorly we did against Ohio State’s tight end. That’ll obviously be a big key for us in this one. We’ve made some adjustments for this game. We’ll be moving Jack Cowan out of the Mike linebacker spot and insert Antonio Holder alongside Declan. I think Antonio’s experience could be a necessary help to the linebackers. Jack will have his opportunities, but for now this is the best move for the defense. We’ve also made an adjustment on the offensive line. Amosa Neru will play at left guard while we put Drew on the right side of the line. We want to be able to block each facet of the game equally on either side. We haven’t talked since recruits have started signing. We’re extremely excited about who we have coming to Athens. I have a lot of confidence that Marcel Couch will be a future leader of the defense and get us to where we want to be. Chad Stevenson will be a great centerpiece for the line in 2024. Zach Dietz will go well with Caleb Hooker at the tight end. And finally, Julian Woodmere is a kid we expect to be ready to go immediately at punter. We’re looking to add more in the next few weeks. I feel like we’ve done well grabbing some of the state’s best recruits so far, and we’ll look to continue to do so. Questions?” Reporter: “Coach, Randall Fitzsimmons, Star Press in Muncie. I’m curious as to your thoughts on the Cardinals’ quarterback situation.” AD3378: “Certainly Coach @npklemm had quite the predicament with four different guys as viable options going into the season. Obviously, he made a decision as to his system that brought it down to a veteran and a freshman. In the end, it’s hard to argue with the results McIntosh put up last week against Kent. We’re certainly wary of what he’s capable of, but I’m confident in our secondary’s ability to limit his throwing options like we did with Ohio State. We just can’t afford to be burned the same way at tight end.” Reporter: “Kevin Moore, Athens Messenger. Coach, this is officially your first MAC game to coach after sitting aside in the prep and coaching of the Miami game to end last regular season. How nervous are you about your first conference game?” AD3378: “Not going to lie, Kevin. I’m feeling the nerves. I’m thankful that we’re in front of our home crowd Friday and looking forward to a great atmosphere. Fact is if the first conference game doesn’t get your nerves going, you don’t have a pulse. Vandy, UNLV, Ohio State, those are all great showcases for our players to get ready for the grind we’ll experience the rest of the season. The real season begins Friday night in Peden Stadium. You better believe we’re ready for a fight, and I expect our guys to dish out just as much hell as we get and then some.” (Feel free to add any other questions for me to answer.)

    Worst Recruiting Memory

    First recruiting season isn't done yet, but having to deal with Ohio State, Toledo, and Western Michigan for top recruits while Kent State, Bowling Green, and Akron grab many of the 3.5 and 3.0 guys is a nightmare. Hated losing Wardell Jean-Georges. He, Blackwell, and Prince/Stevenson across the line the next few years would've wrecked everyone's run game.

    First full season so getting 1.5/5.0 Mike ILB Marcel Couch to anchor the defense down the road.

  12. "Phil Woods, Sentinel Tribune. Coach, a contract extension three games in to the first season is unusual. I'm curious why it took three games in to decide on a four-year deal that could've been done initially. And do you think a 1-2 start warrants that?"
  13. You're likely to sign O'Hennessey, which is good to have a future QB in place (and eventually going to be better than what you have right now). Pretty likely to sign Edwards barring some catastrophe. Also got a 3.5 FS you're battling for with a FCS team from the looks of it. You have the opportunity to get some good ones.
  14. Recruiting is well under way at this point with the first full round of commits making their decisions and coaches either high-fiving or punching their recruiting boards and scrambling to find an alternative strategy. In the MAC, the story is there are three teams and everybody else when it comes to the elite recruits. Western Michigan, Ohio, and Toledo are the only programs to get a commit from a 4.5 or higher. Below are the rankings for the MAC teams: Recruiting Rankings Team Ranking 3.5 4.0 4.5 5.0 Total 32 3 1 1 6 44 2 1 1 4 45 1 1 1 3 77 1 1 7 82 2 1 3 103 2 6 105 2 7 108 3 3 112 2 2 122 1 2 132 1 1 142 0 #1 Western Michigan Broncos (#32 national) - 6 commits @Pskeate Strongest Early Signings 4* #5 (#93 overall) RB Jamel Garrett 6-1 206 Fr Clarkston (Clarkston MI) 1.0 of 5.0 [Speed] 4* #8 (#192) C Parker Bledsoe 6-1 292 Fr Pacelli (Stevens Point WI) 1.0 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking] Recruits with Top Interest FB Wyatt Ryder 5-9 252 Fr Valley Forge (Parma Heights, OH) 1.0 of 4.0 [Run Blocking] WR Dillon Spiller 6-2 228 Fr Barron Collier (Naples, FL) 2.0 of 3.5 [Target] OT Frederick Wood 6-3 308 Fr Napoleon (Napoleon, MI) 1.5 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] DT Tugboat Barber 6-7 282 Fr Flushing (Flushing, MI) 2.0 of 4.0 [2-Gap] ATH Reshad Davenport 5-11 230 Fr Brandywine (Niles, MI) 1.0 of 5.0 [Blitz] Offense, offense, offense. Western Michigan has been able to pick up their next stud running back in Jamel Garrett and a couple of pieces on the line with Wisconsin center Parker Bledsoe and tackle Kendrick Jackson (3.5). There are also some depth pieces at receiver and fullback as well as a defensive piece at the outside linebacker. The Broncos are in position to continue making splashes being in the poll position for fullback Wyatt Ryder (4.0), receiver Dillon Spiller (3.5), off tackle Frederick Wood (3.5), def tackle Tugboat Barber (4.0), and athlete (outside linebacker) Reshad Davenport (5.0). They're also on the radar of off tackle Mike Holley (3.5). The only tight battle is over Davenport with Michigan which could prove difficult. Overall, this group is doing what it wants to and shows few signs of slowing. #2 Ohio Bobcats (#44 national) - 4 commits @AD3378 Strongest Early Signings 5* #3 (#29) ILB Marcel Couch 6-3 236 Fr Archbishop Hoban (Akron OH) 1.5 of 5.0 [Mike] 4* #18 (#213) DT Chad Stevenson 6-4 310 Fr Elyria Catholic (Elyria OH) 3.0 of 4.0 [2-Gap] Recruits with Top Interest OT Ethan Riggs 6-3 271 Fr Triway (Wooster, OH) 2.0 of 4.0 [Run Blocking] OLB Derek Mann 6-3 242 Fr St. Xavier (Cincinnati, OH) 1.0 of 4.5 [Blitz] OLB Jayshon Jackson 6-4 236 Fr Kenowa Hills (Grand Rapids, MI) 1.0 of 4.5 [Coverage] Western Michigan went heavy on offense. Ohio is looking heavy on the defensive side of the ball. Of the three 5.0's committed to the MAC, inside linebacker Marcel Couch is the only defender, and Ohio plucked him out of the Zips' backyard. The interior was shore up even further with the signing of 310-pound def tackle Chad Stevenson. Ohio also grabbed a tight end to give the Bobcats some semi-depth after departures as well as a punter. Ohio's targets aren't as solid as Western Michigan at the moment. While they enjoy a breathable lead for off tackle Ethan Riggs (4.0), their lead for outside linebackers Derek Mann (4.5) and Jayshon Jackson (4.5) are razor thin against the likes of Penn State and Rice. Not good company. The Bobcats are also in second place for quite a few players including a tight battle for long snapper Travis Hurt (5.0) and being a bit more behind for the likes of quarterback Mike Barnett (4.5), fullback Wyatt Ryder (4.0), receiver Dajuan Page (5.0), center Allan Castro (3.5), inside linebacker Akiem Chavis (3.5), and safety Patrick Brice (3.5) as well as being a distant third for kicker Abraham Stauffer (3.5). The class is a good start, but the Bobcats may have to cut some losses if they want to enjoy more commits in the near future. #3 Toledo Rockets (#45 national) - 3 commits @deathcpo Strongest Early Signings 4* #6 (#96) RB Derrick Guyton 5-11 221 Fr Dublin Coffman (Dublin OH) 1.0 of 5.0 [Power] 3* #42 DT Wendell Yarbrough 6-5 291 Fr Goshen (Goshen OH) 2.5 of 3.5 [1-Gap] Recruits with Top Interest QB Mike Barnett 5-11 196 Fr Triway (Wooster, OH) 1.5 of 4.5 [Pocket] TE Amir Scott 6-6 204 Fr Amelia (Batavia, OH) 1.0 of 4.0 [Receiving] OG Eric Lawson 6-7 281 Fr River Valley (Cheshire, OH) 1.5 of 4.5 [Run Blocking] DE Wardell Jean-Georges 6-5 255 Brookside (Sheffield, OH) 2.5 of 4.5 [Contain] LS Travis Hurt 6-3 261 Fr St. Xavier (Cincinnati, OH) 1.0 of 5.0 [Specialized] With one more recruit, the Rockets would be in the passenger's seat ahead of Ohio. Alas, it's neck-and-neck to see which team will challenge Western Michigan at the moment. Toledo brought in one of the best offensive players from the home state with running back Derrick Guyton. They also grabbed long snapper Kenny Schell and def tackle Wendell Yarbrough (3.5). The Rockets are in a great position for quarterback Mike Barnett (4.5), off guard Eric Lawson (4.5), and def end Wardell Jean-Georges (4.5). Toledo is also in the hunt for cornerback Keandre Williams (4.5). They're slightly on the radar for receiver Trevor Dutton (4.5), inside linebacker Darren Bright (3.5), outside linebacker Derek Mann (4.5), and cornerback Ron Street (3.5). This team is in position to pass Ohio and be the biggest threat for the top MAC recruiting class. #4 Akron Zips (#77 national) - 7 commits @darkage Strongest Early Signings 4* #17 (#195) QB Cole Richter 6-2 235 Fr Keystone (La Grange OH) 2.0 of 4.0 [Hybrid] 2* #88 OLB Francesco Connor 6-0 215 Fr Pickerington North (Pickerington OH) 1.0 of 3.5 [Blitz] Recruits with Top Interest WR Ian Reese 6-3 213 Fr Mt.

Aside from that, Akron grabbed some freshmen that could contribute early at receiver, off guard, cornerback, and safety. Looking ahead, Akron leads for receivers Ian Reese (4.0) and Kyrie Cannon (3.5), center Allan Castro (3.5), def end Sam Phelps (3.5), inside linebacker Hunter Rogers (4.0), and corner Christian Washington (4.0). Many of these have Akron in a comfortable lead so there's quite a bit to be excited over. Other players Akron has their sights set on are off guard Frederick Nunn (3.5) and outside linebacker Shawntez Richardson (3.5). This looks to have the potential of a solid class for the Zips. #5 Ball State Cardinals (#82 national) - 3 commits @npklemm Strongest Early Signings 3* #15 TE Joel Leone Jr. 6-3 214 Fr Hales Franciscan (Chicago IL) 1.0 of 4.0 [Receiving] 3* #34 RB Javier Daniels 5-11 176 Fr Notre Dame (Quincy IL) 1.5 of 3.5 [Speed] Recruits with Top Interest WR Israel Hooks 6-2 228 Fr Germantown (Germantown, WI) 1.0 of 3.5 [Target] OT Marc McMullen 6-1 268 Fr Winter Springs (Winter Springs, FL) 3.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] DE Samuel Cleveland 6-0 254 Fr Hanover Park (East Hanover, NJ) 2.0 of 4.0 [Contain] DE Miguel Carlos 6-4 236 Fr Morgan Park (Chicago, IL) 1.5 of 3.5 [Contain] ILB Daveed Saunders 6-3 232 Fr Lewis County (Hohenwald, TN) 2.5 of 3.5 [Mike] ILB Jonah Sands 6-4 229 Fr Hales Franciscan (Chicago, IL) 1.0 of 3.5 [Mike] OLB Dominique Brantley 6-3 224 Fr Roberto Clemente Academy (IL) 1.0 of 4.5 [Blitz] K Johnny Burkett 5-8 223 Fr North Mesquitte (Mesquitte, TX) 2.5 of 3.0 [Power] P Nikolas Harrington 6-4 183 Fr J.A.

    2018 CFB playoff prediction

    Oh I have no belief that UCF will get in barring absolute chaos, but the discussion with them and the other two I named would be an interesting conversation. Washington State had no one decent on their non-conf. schedule and their best win will be over a team that has at least four losses. And then Ohio State will be looked at with their loss to Purdue. It just becomes interesting theatre. Does a 1-loss UGA get in with a close loss to Bama in the SECCG? So much could happen if Ohio State beats UM and the Big 12 champion has two losses.
