    [2018] Week 3 IRL Discussion

    Ohio State: 11-1, no way they make it out of (un)Happy Valley and Lansing unscathed. But you better believe Day is going to bring it against TCU this weekend and get hired away this offseason. Ball State: 7-5, they surprise IU this weekend and run over some of the weaker teams in the West. But they definitely get curb stomped by our rivals Northern Illinois. (can someone please remind them that we are rivals...I feel like they are forgetting that.)

    Oregon State University announces changes to coaching staff

    How will DoesItFitInABreadBox specifically work to change the schemes to get more wins out of an already talented squad?

    I'm getting banned with you, don't you worry. I also may or may not help the campus riot... The other game I'll be watching will be Tulsa v Texas. Tulsa is one of those teams that could surprise them.

    Board games

    So, as a *slightly crazy board game person, is root worth searching out and getting? Mind you, I'm still in college and already own too many board games. But there's always room for another great one in my collection.

    Colorado State Unveils New Head Guy

    As with all of the best teams, we will not be a built around a superstar or two. We will control the trenches, and work together to succeed. This may mean changing our playbook annually to fit what our personnel excels at, but our current players have assured me that they are ready to do that. Sadly, I don't know that you will see much of the midwest in me. Our team is no Wisconsin, so we won't be playing like them. Look for everything to run through our Quarterback and Captain. I would expect every offensive play to go through his hands. *Half sarcastic, half genuine smile*
  6. The Fort Collins Coloradoan By: Xenus Callahan It was quite the spectacle to see Colorado State call a presser amid the whispers that Bellwoodbomb611 was out. It sure was a strange night in Fort Collins when they decided to leave as the Rams had won their first bowl game of CFBHC. But, sure enough, they started scrambling for a new coach. The media had no idea who the favorites were, so they whispered about every coach in the mountains. Yet, when they introduced Ahven D'Gale last night at 7 pm, they saw a towering, well-built, Midwesterner take the podium. Outrage ensued. How could they bring someone from Ohio, with no experience in the Rockies out to coach a home-grown football team. What were they thinking? There is no way they could pull recruits from Ohio all the way out to Fort Collins. This is a team built on camaraderie, not just taking their pick of the best in the nation! But he waited patiently until the reporters fell into a murmur, waiting for him to speak. "Obviously, I'm not who y'all were expecting to see today. Now, I want you to just give me a chance. I know that it will be a change. Both for all y'all and for the players." Suddenly, as he is saying this, the CSU backdrop gets pulled to the side. "But I have already met with the team, and we are excited to move forward this year. Our goal is the MWC title and another bowl win." The two players step up behind him, each placing a hand on his shoulder. "In order to help us achieve this goal, I have asked these two model young men to step up and be full time captains this year. They will be joined every week by two rotating captains who have really earned their keep, either in practice, or in being a role model for the younger players on our team. I believe that both of these men are excelling in both of those qualities. May I introduce, your 2022 offensive and defensive Captains! Your Quarterback, Wesley Brady, and your Defensive End, Zach Dockery! These two men have welcomed me in, and helped the entire team buy-in before I was even introduced to them officially. These two men have been exemplary in their studies and their extracurriculars. Between the two of them, they have combined for one speeding ticket, and no other infractions. Wesley holds a 3.82 GPA with a major in Engineering, and Dockery is looking to graduate Summa Cum Laude with a major in Biomedical Sciences. I could not have asked for better students, better leaders, or better men. With these two guiding the team, I am confident that we will remain competitive this year. With that, I will open the floor to any questions that you all may have." Now the press was in shock. Here was a man, with no real connection to Fort Collins, acting like he already belonged. And everyone in the room honestly felt like he did. Until the first question came. Gerald Hornbeck: "What do you have to say about the MWC as a whole? How do you think that you will stack up this year?" D'Gale: "Well...I can't say that I know for certain. Ya see, I grew up a fan of THE Ohio State University *boos*. Calm down, calm down. It's a regional thing, I was born in the suburbs of Cbus, I don't know what you all expected. Either way, I know that we will compete. We will go out every game and earn our keep here in the MWC. I may not know much about the coference, but I'm a quick learner." Kenny Sal: "What if we play Ohio in the next couple of years? Will you designate an acting coach so we know you aren't throwin' the game?" *Support comes from around the room. Wesley and Zach stay by D'Gale's side, but noticably take their hands off of his shoulders* D'Gale: *Disappointment shows* "I am hurt that y'all think I would ever go out and not work my hardest. I guarantee that I will go out, do my best, and require their best. Every. Single. Day." Sonny Lubick: "Now what makes you think that you can bring this program back to it's glory days when I was coaching?" D'Gale: "I won't stand here and pretend that it will be easy. I know that Hawaii is a tough team, and Boise won it all a few years ago. Back when I was watching football as a kid, the MWC was a laughing stock. It isn't any more, and I REFUSE to let Colorado State fall behind the curve. While I may not have the head coaching experience that our competitors have, I can make up for that with my meticulous planning. I will not bring CSU back to the forefront of the conference. Our players will." Jacob Smith: "Now...why exactly is your name Ahven D'Gale? It's a really odd name for a head coach, especially given the success of those with regular names in past years." D'Gale: *Chuckles for a moment* "Now, I always like this question. Ya see, I was born at the start of the the blizzard of 1978, also called 'The White Hurricane'. And my Father just kept telling my mother that they'd have to weather the storm. Once it passed, they could get her to a hospital. She looked at him and said no, this home has to be our haven. When she had to have me before they could get out of the house, they agreed that my name would be Ahven D'Gale. Haven from/of the storm. When our players and our communities go through troubling times, I intend to be that Haven...Which brings up the biggest reason for this press conference. Colorado State and I will be teaming up to build and volunteer at a brand new Center for the Homeless. These are massively different from homeless shelters as they work towards independence and employment for their communities. Now, if there are any more questions, please feel free to send them to the Fort Collins Coloradoan. I have already agreed with them to stay in contact and use them to connect me to the community, aside from public events. Thank you for your time!" And with a wave the 6'10" head coach turned and walked off stage. Two sizeable players looking small at his sides. It looked like the two were teasing him about something. Maybe about wanting to start THE season already.

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? Colorado State Rams 4. Please select two backup teams (in descending order of preference) in case your first choice is unavailable. Oregon State Beavers New Mexico State Aggies 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'm a 21 year old Actuarial Science Major at Ball State University (CHIRP CHIRP). I'm from Dayton, Ohio, and will always love the Flyers and Buckeyes! I love getting and and playing sports any time I can, I specialize in Walleyball and any game with a frisbee. I'll fit in well, because I enjoy creatively writing story lines to go with my NCAA 13 dynasty, and am willing to put time into this. College FB is my favorite sport, and I am desperate to have a game that can pull me back in since NCAA ended. 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? A couple hours, depends on the week. Between 5-10. 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. Yes. Oddly enough, I'm actually a little excited about losing since I struggle to do it when playing solo games. 8. How did you find out about this site? If recommended by a friend, please post his/her username. I saw it on a reddit thread while I was searching for CFB sims. u/SlinkyJr
