  1. choninja21: Last week they struggled on special teams so taking advantage of that by making them kick field goals will be key for next week.
  2. *catchy music plays over highlights from past seasons. Then a logo appears announcing "The Toledo Rockets Show". Fades into a host and Coach choninja21 sitting in chairs facing the camera* Host: Hello and welcome to The Toledo Rockets Show! I am here with Coach choninja21. How are you doing today, Coach? choninja21: I'm doing pretty well. Host: Coach, let me start by congratulating you on this week's win over Kentucky and your first win as a Head Coach of this program. choninja21: Thank you so much! This is historic moment for me personally, as it is my first win in D1. I look forward to many more wins in the future. Host: What a win it was. Let's take a look at the first half highlights. *highlights from the first half play as the host and Coach comment on the different plays* Host: The Rockets went into the locker room up by four at the half. Coach, what were your thoughts for the team going into the second half? choninja21: I was happy about the way our defense was playing. They came up with some big stops and forced Kentucky to have to settle for two field goals. On the other side of the ball, I was concerned about our offensive production. We were forced to punt on some key third downs due to offensive mistakes and we already talked about the interception. We also had some unnecessary penalties as well. I told the guys in the locker room that we needed to buckle down and play a more disciplined game. Host: We'll see if the players took Coach's advice in the second half highlights. *highlights from the second half play as the host and Coach comment on the different plays* Host: That's the final score: Rockets-31, Wildcats-27. Coach, how did you feel about how the team did in the second half? choninja21: Again, I was happy on the defensive side of the ball. They showed up when we needed key plays and only allowed two scores, one in each quarter. The offense was able to get something going on the ground and we were able to hold onto the lead. Host: How do you think the team did overall this week? Were there any standouts? choninja21: We talked earlier about him but Blake Gauthier had a big game with four tackles, two for a loss, a sack, and an interception. He is a key piece of the defense moving forward. Along with guys like Jerraud Bynum and Quinton Wilkerson. Host: How about on offense? choninja21: I was pleased with the run game this week. Alvin Hines had almost 100 yards on 17 attempts and 2 TDs. He had some big shoes to fill and he is making a valiant effort to fill them. Host: What do you see that has room for improvement on this team? choninja21: Well on offense, the air game needs a bit of work in my opinion. Giovanni Grubbs was barely over 50% in completions and it wasn't due to drops. The two interceptions didn't help either. I have no complaints about the defense or special teams. Host: Speaking of Grubbs, there was a ton of buzz in the media about him getting the quarterback position over other members on the roster. How do you see his role moving forward? choninja21: I will make my decision in regards to his starting role this week during practice. To put it simply, it will be a decision that will either push us forward or hold us back. Host: Well, congratulations again on the win and I wish you more success moving forward. choninja21: Thank you so much and thank you to all of the Rockets fans for supporting this team. I know having a new coach after a long time coach leaves is not easy. Host: That is all the time we have for today. The Rockets have their first home game of the season against UNLV. We will see you there and meet you back here next week for another edition of the Toledo Rockets Show. *credits*
  3. Congratulations to Keith Holbrook and Eric Caudill! It's great seeing some preseason love for my team. ^_^
  4. I was tempted to coach there when I was looking at teams that were free. However, Toledo appealed to me more.
  5. Moderator: That's all the time we have for questions today. Thank you everyone for your questions and for attending this press conference. Go Rockets!
  6. choninja21: *polite laugh* I'm well aware. I am a sucker for a good city skyline.
  7. choninja21: Thank you. I am honored to be a part of the Mid-American Conference family. I chose this job due to the strength of the MAC, the beautiful city of Toledo, and the traditions of this Rockets program.
  8. choninja21: *laughs* Ah the Toledo War. I figured something would come up about it. I am proud to be in this state at the present and I'm glad that this city is where it is. As a South Carolina native, I hope to bring a different philosophy that will attract those who normally wouldn't consider the Rockets.
  9. choninja21: Realistically I expect us to finish around 3rd in the conference but I will naturally aim for the top spot.
  10. choninja21: Thank you for having me. I am glad to be here and will definitely take all the help I can get. As for the team, I hope to have a dynamic quarterback on offense. This year we have Giovanni Grubbs back for his final year and I look forward to see what he can do this season for this offense. On the defensive side of things, I hope to see some big plays when it comes to the pass rush. I have been very impressed in practice by Inside Linebacker Ryan Carr in particular.
  11. choninja21: Winning the Battle of I-75 is high on my priority list for this year. Another goal for this is year is to play in a high profile bowl game. Other than that I hope to grow as a coach as we grow as a team.
  12. Moderator: Thank you all for coming to this momentous occasion. There have been many rumors in regards to who would be hired as the Head Coach of our Toledo Rockets. We are here today to put those rumors to rest. Allow me to introduce the new Head Coach of the Toledo Rockets: choninja21! *applause as choninja21 steps up to the podium* choninja21: Thank you, thank you. I would like to start by thanking the Athletic Director and University of Toledo for hiring me to this position. I am honored to now be a part of a program that is full of tradition and prestige. While this may be seen as an unorthodox move in selecting a coach with no prior D1 experience, I assure you that I will adjust quickly to this level of play and do my best to provide you with the great Rockets action that I know you are used to seeing. My goal for this season is to honor the history that came before me and to create history of my own. My only concern is in regards to this Ohio weather because I am a South Carolina native, it will take some getting used to. I might have to buy more winter coats and earmuffs. *assorted chuckles from the crowd* Moderator: We will now open the floor to any questions you might have for Coach.
