  1. Arkansas State is a mess. Need to make some major philosophical adjustments in the off-season. Running the ball zero times is absurd.
  2. Excellent write-ups! Arkansas State is looking for a (minor) miracle.
  3. Great analysis! Arkansas State is going to try hard and salvage something from this class, although the work of the CPU was not too shabby. Congrats to Georgia State on their top in the Sun Belt class so far.

  5. Great question and one I know a lot of our fans are wondering as well. For the Seniors, this comes down to the question of how you want to end your career in Jonesboro? You have a chance to turn things around and set the stage for this program going forward. For the younger guys, these last games are an audition. There's a new coaching staff who will be evaluating the entire team and some young guys have a chance to get in the mix. From a tactical standpoint, we have one of the best quarterbacks in the conference. We need to find a way to protect him as the offensive line play has been poor. We are going to make some line up changes and try out some different formations to give Eugene Salas more time. He's been sacked 23 times which is something we have to address if we hope to win games.
  6. At the Arkansas State athletic facility this afternoon, Larry Spader was introduced as the new head coach for the Red Wolves program. Spader was late for his own introductory press conference, and offered an unapologetic reason for this tardiness, “I was recruiting. You don’t win without talented players. Recruiting is the life-blood of any program and we’re behind the eight-ball a little bit as we’ve missed out on a lot time with these high school players. But we are going to work hard to build some relationships and persuade these kids to buy into our vision for the program.” Spader then talked about the monumental challenge ahead as he takes over a team that is 1-6 and winless in conference, “This season hasn’t been what many fans expected. But there are some very talented players on this roster and we’re going to work hard to make sure we finish strong. We’re not giving up on anything. We have one of the best quarterbacks in the conference in Eugene Salas and we’re going to work hard to make sure he finishes his Arkansas State career on a high note. Ideally, we would have liked to have an off-season for training and to get a full recruiting cycle under our belts. But this opportunity presented itself now, and there is no way I was turning down the chance to coach at such an esteemed university.” Arkansas State is coming off a 9-4 season in 2022 and a win over Eastern Michigan in the Arizona Bowl. Spader talked about returning to the post-season, “Last year was a great season for this team and I commend the work of previous coach Youngdunc15. There is no reason we can’t get back to bowl games. Things may have gone South over the course of this campaign, but the foundation is in place to return Arkansas State to a Sun Belt contender. “

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 long-time college football fanatic living in Denver, Colorado. Been a part of numerous online sim leagues. I know that the community building aspect of leagues is just as fun as the actual games. I'll be an active head coach and look forward to competing and interacting with you all. I also played in BBCF leagues so I have experience with the sim. 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? Can definitely devote a couple of hours a 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. -I'm a Colorado Buffaloes fan. All we have is disappointment (see Friday night's game against USC as the perfect example) 8. How did you find out about this site? If recommended by a friend, please post his/her username. Google search of online college football sims. Thanks for the consideration!
