    [2022] FCS POTW Week #2

    Robbie Koehler gives me nightmares. Dude is too good to be playing in the FCS, but I'm sure North Dakota is happy to have him

    Week #0 concludes, setting up an exciting season to come

    I'm biased, but I am excited about how Illinois State does this year. As for the rest of the FCS, North Dakota St. and Eastern Washington are the class of the conference imo, and we may have just seen a preview of the Championship game. James Madison looks pretty good too, should be a fascinating year.

    Illinois State Football Introduces New Head Coach

    Officially, I shouldn't say such things about other teams. But it seems like we are on the same page. Yes, South Dakota State are the Jackrabbits.
  9. Normal, IL After a successful season last year ending one game short of the FCS Championship Game, Illinois State University is proud to announce the hiring of their new head football coach, VerifiedThing. Mr. VerifiedThing has worked the last couple of years as an assistant on our program, and we believe he will take our team to the next level. When asked to comment, VerifiedThing had this to say: "I am honored to accept the role of head football coach at this great University. Redbird Nation should be very excited about where this program is heading, and, without getting too ahead of myself, I would like to ask our fans to keep their schedules open once the postseason starts, because we plan on going on a long run." Illinois State opens their season at home against South Dakota State. Any questions for the new coach can be asked below.

    If I get hired to run the team, I will make Illinois State a blue blood program or die trying

    The reason is that my dad raised me a Notre Dame fan, but he forgot to mention there was a much better team playing in Ann Arbor, and it wasn't until I was 7 til I realized they were both pretty big rivals in football. I'm conflicted every time they play, and this year will be especially rough since both teams are expected to have great seasons (hopefully)

    1. Please list your email address and/or your reddit username at which you can be contacted. 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. 3. What team do you want to coach? 4. Please select two backup teams (in descending order of preference) in case your first choice is unavailable. 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. 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? 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. 8. How did you find out about this site? If recommended by a friend, please post his/her username. 1. goblue13@att.net, /u/VerifiedThing 2. Confirmed 3. Illinois State 4. Northern Iowa, Youngstown State 5. I am 21 years old, I am currently a student at the University of Texas at Dallas. At the time of this writing I just started my Senior year and am excited to graduate and get a job (hopefully) right out of college. I grew up in Chicago until high school, then moved to Dallas where I currently still live. I think I would be a good fit because I love college football and seeing all the creativity on this site makes me think that I could get used to being on here everyday. 6. Week-to-week varies just do to classes and work, but I can absolutely find at least 30 minutes in my day everyday to come on here and do whatever is needed. 7. I coached a youth basketball team for my local YMCA. We went 0-10 on the year, with a couple heartbreaking last-second losses, but I had a damn good time, and the kids were really fun to be around. At the end of the day, coaching is just about helping player become better people. 8. I stumbled across your Wiki page and was amazed at the detail and thought and time that has been put into this league.

    Introductions

    Hello all! I am new as you can probably tell, and am excited to get started. I grew up in Chicago and a few years ago moved to Dallas, where I currently attend the University of Texas at Dallas which, unfortunately, does not field a football team (even though we totally could get a decent DIII team formed but that's neither here nor there). I am 21 years old and am a HUGE fan of the Michigan Wolverines (Go Blue!) while my secondary team is, surprisingly to some, Notre Dame. As far as professional sports I am a big fan of Da Bears, and also root for the White Sox, Bulls, and Blackhawks. I found this forum randomly as I stumbled upon your guys' wiki page and was confused as to why it had Purdue as the 2021 Champs when the 2021 season didn't happen yet. After browsing this site and the wiki for the past hour or so I thought it would be a really cool thing to try out. I hope to have a lot of fun on here as I progress my way though the coaching gauntlet in hopes of controlling my own team someday.
