    [2022] Week #5 - FNF

    You earned that win. I would've loved to see the fourth quarter, as I picture a back and forth battle where you happened to get the ball last. I can see I need to shore up a bit on defense, but we've been there in every game except Auburn.

    Generational Music

    My father and Billy Joel are connected in my head. Other than that, my parents didn't drill any music into our heads. We were very much allowed to find our own musical tastes for ourselves. I imagine that I'll let my kids do the same. Don't get me wrong, they'll know my favorite artists, but it'll stop there.

    How are you doing?

    So...I'm kinda new here, but I dig the community that has formed here. This spurring out of a college football sim is amazing. So, let's be honest. On the outside, I've got my life fucking lined up in the best way. I'm president of a (business) fraternity. got a great job at the library. It's my last semester, with a full time position in Indy lined up. Figuring out housing for January since I graduate in Dec. I just had my most productive day in memory yesterday where I did more shit than I thought possible. This girl who has my heart is interested in me, and I have the perfect plan to ask her out. Then, I dive deeper. I see myself filling my time every day so as not to be alone. If I have more than 20 minutes where I don't have a person that I'm supposed to see, I either take a nap or find a person to spend the time with. I cannot stand being alone, or having to think about my life and where I am. It's gotten to the point that when I go to bed, I need to fall asleep in 5 minutes, (I don't know how to describe this next part) or I start seeing myself in other places. What I mean by that is that I no longer feel like I'm lying in bed, and i see, clear as day, my body somewhere else, doing something else. It's terrifying. So I run myself ragged every day so I'm exhausted at night. I had to face the reality last weekend that as much as I love my parents, I do not have a relationship with them. They knew nothing about my life, and despite wanting to offer more details, when they would ask questions I would give the shortest responses. I also had to realize that I am not capable of living alone at this point, so I will be renting a house with some "friends" from college. I put that in quotes because I feel like I'm their 9th option to hang out with. I actually always feel that way, so i'm trying to convince myself that people don't merely tolerate me. The biggest problem though is my depression. It has not hit this hard in a long time. Over the past couple weeks, I've had to get up and walk out of meetings and classes because I could not be there anymore. It feels like any alone time immediately starts spiraling downwards, and I am unable to stop it like I've had limited ability to do in the past. The only reason I am able to get up most mornings is because if I don't, my housemates will tell my parents what is going on, and they don't know that I struggle at all. I'm the golden child, who doesn't have bipolar, or migraines, or switch majors. I'm the one who works hardest, longest, and gets the best grades. I'm the one with the steady job before graduation. I'm the gold standard for our extended family, and this would destroy that.

    We only play 11 games that count this year...we gotta win out... Our best hope is that Meyer resigns for personal health/family reasons. Firing him would ignite some big donors, and he can't seem to build a staff to help him. I hope it is this year so he can leave on a somewhat positive note.

    OSU's loss matters. Unlike last year, this wasn't a one-off where the entire team was a let down due to a massive game the week before. When watching the Purdue game, the problems were the same that have been around all season. This is not a playoff team unless the defense gets inspired and/or the offense gets creative. I think OSU sticks with Urban at least another season allowing Day to walk somewhere else. Meyer will once again replace a great assistant with someone who can't do the job well enough. The same thing happened at Florida, so he started taking more control to make up for the failures of his friends who he hired. I think they stick with him a little too long, and spend years rebuilding from a weak coaching staff.

    New Hampshire’s New Coach

    Bruce Wyman here, You said, Now, how do you intend to come out of the gate and start competing? Don't you still have to earn trust, get your team to buy in, and get a few good bounces to win? These men have never played with you before, and you are walking in at midnight before the season starts, how will you compete in your first couple of games?

    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*
