    1. Do you ever make your players switch sides?

      I've switched my CBs at Oregon this year to maximize matchups on occasion. I've got one tall zone CB, and one short man CB. I'm not sure it's been worth the chemistry hit, honestly.
    2. Bingo Bongo, Minneapolis Star Tribune Coach Smackems, without revealing too much about your strategy, describe a bit of the process of recruiting in a state that was not littered with talent. What were your objectives in finding talent in other states?
    3. Roast Me (CFBHC Edition)

      Holy shit this dude has been here since JULY!! Is there a more perfect match between non-entity school and non-entity user?
    4. Great Class, Jumbo! USC is in a perfect position to regain former glory. You've got to beat some folks up north (including Westwood) first, but this is the class to get it done. A good day for SC and a great day for the PAC 12!!
    5. There are a couple: Mark Bassett (GBP DT); OJ Carano (NYG). But two stick out: my first big recruits: Patrick Murphy (PIT) and Jamir Blackburn (CIN). Jamir has been much better this season than I expected. And Pat M. is just killing it in Pittsburgh.

      Spain's actual 23-man roster: Goalkeepers: David de Gea (Manchester United), Kepa Arrizabalaga (Athletic Bilbao), Pepe Reina (SSC Napoli). Defenders: Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid), Álvaro Odriozola (Real Sociedad), Gerard Piqué (Barcelona), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Nacho (Real Madrid), César Azpilicueta (Chelsea), Jordi Alba (Barcelona), Nacho Monreal (Arsenal). Midfielders: Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Saúl Ñíguez (Atlético Madrid), Andrés Iniesta (Barcelona), Thiago Alcántara (Bayern München), Koke (Atlético Madrid), Isco (Real Madrid). Forwards: David Silva (Manchester City), Marco Asensio (Real Madrid), Lucas Vázquez (Real Madrid), Diego Costa (Atlético Madrid), Rodrigo (Valencia), Iago Aspas (Celta Vigo). My Spain XI: Iniesta/Thiago/Silva a ridiculously creative attacking midfield, Asensio will likely be a super sub, but why not start him up top with Costa as Target Man? de Gea Azpilicueta/Alba - Pique - Ramos - Carvajal Busquets Iniesta - Alcántara Silva Asensio - Costa
    7. Signing Days: Alex Gruber, QB (Oregon)

      Alex Gruber and parents at his signing ceremony, week 5 of the CFBHC season Alex Gruber represents a number of firsts for the University of Oregon and for Head Coach Bingo415. Gruber is the first 5.0 potential quarterback from the state of Oregon to sign with the Ducks (Joaquin Younger, Oceanside, CA), and the first 5.0 potential quarterback of Coach Bingo's tenure at both Oregon and Minnesota. Gruber was among a handful of stellar in-state recruits this cycle, along with TE Jack Booth (3.5/5.0, Dallas, OR); CB Chance Muse (1.0/4.5, Dallas, OR); OG Grant Vershon (1.5/4.5, Newberg, OR); and Gruber's cousin, Ryder Gruber (1.0/4.0, Salem, OR). This wealth of in-state talent tails off considerably in the 2022 cycle, so the Ducks are feeling especially lucky securing the LOI of Gruber and his classmates. Some of the members of Oregon's 2021 recruiting class, ranked #24 Alex Gruber is an intriguing prospect who brings good size, decent mobility, and a strong arm to the table. He is a bit raw in his reading of defenses, but a year on the bench with a redshirt, learning behind Senior QB Jason Baum, will be dramatically important for his development. While there are a few other talented signal-callers in the wings (notably 2020 4* recruit Savion Knox), it is likely that Gruber will assume the starters role in 2023. The Pistol formation has been a staple at Oregon since Coach Bingo's arrival and that looks to continue with this devilishly talented quarterback taking snaps. The coaching staff is looking for Gruber to come in with an attitude of hard work, soaking up the football life around him, and grab the 2023 starting quarterback position with both hands. Gruber throwing at a Duck QB camp in the summer Alex Gruber -- Welcome to the University of Oregon and thank you for choosing to be among the Men of Oregon.

      Knockout round? Certainly would get through a group...
    9. DENVER, CO--The Denver Broncos announce that Owner and former Head Coach Bingo415 will return to the sidelines for the remainder of the season following the departure of much-loved Coach Jieret to the Seattle Seahawks front office. GM Franz Kafka was instrumental in encouraging the former head man to return to the coach's box, knowing that the organization may search for a new Head Coach in the off-season. "After the turn-around Coach Jieret started us on these past 6 weeks, these are now giant shoes to step into. We wish Jieret well with his new team, and we're looking forward to finishing the season strong. We feel we're in a decently-strong position for a playoff spot, and we've got a tough schedule down the stretch. Let's get out there and kick some tail...especially the Raiders." Broncos front office is now open for questions.
    10. Thanks, Champ. Completely untrue. While the Chargers have been playing better of late, we have a division to go win. No letting up, not even to prevent the Chargers from having ANOTHER #1 pick. Maybe if they'd like to trade us that #1, we'll talk.
    11. Thanks for the question, Burt. Good to see you out of the hospital...that was a nasty suckerpunch from Pumph. League should have looked into that... Anyway, I've learned quite a bit about how Jieret has utilized Jennings and the running backs in the Spread base offense. He really excelled at letting them 'do their thing' and it was showing results. I bring a different sensibility to offensive and defensive efficiency. My teams have always been near the top of the League in OYPP and DYPP, two ball-control stats that I value. One thing I'd like to continue from what Jieret had begun is getting the Defensive Ends onto the stat sheets. I had typically funneled all activity to the middle of the defense: it's why Michael Carroll and Cameron Jonah were Pro Bowlers last year, but Jieret was teaching me to employ some wider sets on defense and our Ends have taken off this year. Charles Johnson is on pace to set a new PR in sacks, and Deyonte Davis is just a joy to be around. He's such a positive new addition to the locker room.

      Heck of a win for USC, and congrats to ASU on bowl eligibility! Fascinatig games!
    17. Congratulations, Jieret! We are certainly going to miss you in Denver, but I'm happy that you've answered the call to lead your favorite franchise. You'll have them up and in contention in no time. Best wishes, see you on the playing field!

      All those nice things I said about Vollmagnet last week...totally take them back. Way to go FIU and NMSU!
    19. Crap. Michael had been playing very well for us this season after the boost of confidence from his Pro Bowl 2020 season. We wish him a speedy recovery and we know that he'll come back even stronger in 2022. In the meantime, we've got a division to win. Go Broncos!

      (I'm gonna try to not be a homer while doing this...here goes) Yeldon has improved every year, with a worse OLine situation, while Trufant has not. Improvement is a more clear sign of progression as a prospect. Trufant -- 2019 (FR) - 3.0/5.0 Power (playing with a 3.5/4.5 QB) 1,703 yards, 23 TDs, 5.57 YPC 2020 (SO) - 4.5/5.0 Power (playing with a 4.5/4.5 QB) 1,451 yards, 22 TDs, 5.06 YPC 2021 (JR) - 5.0/5.0 Power (playing with a 4.5/4.5 QB) 1,167 yards, 15 TDs, 6.4 YPC (projects to 1,556 yards, 21 TDs, 6 .1 YPC) 2021 OLine for WISC: (L to R) 4/4, 3.5/3.5, 4/4, 4.5/4.5, 2.5/3.5 Yeldon -- 2019 (FR) - 3.0/5.0 Power 1,454 yards, 20 TDs, 5.59 YPC (playing with a 3.0/4.0 QB) 2020 (SO) - 4.0/5.0 Power 1.545 yards, 22 TDs, 5.52 YPC (playing with a 4/4 QB) 2021 (JR) - 5.0/5.0 Power 1,467 yards, 17 TDs, 6..73 YPC (projects to 1,956 yards, 23 TDs, 6.8 YPC, playing with a 4/4 QB) 2021 OLine for Oregon: (L to R) 2.5/4.5, 3.5/3.5, 2.5/3.0, 2/5, 2/4.5 Yeldon has improved year after year, has done more with less help (OLine and QB), and has been the focal point of the offense while still racking up nearly 7 yards per carry. Yeldon is the better prospect.
    21. Oregon hoping to continue that IRL pipeline to Mater Dei! Great new feature! This is exciting.
    22. The Broncos are hopeful that this is short-term injury, as Michael has performed very well this year. We trust our medical staff to provide the best possible care. Coach Jieret will have an appropriate practice and game plan for Michael's backup Manny Serrano. Rest up, Mike!
    23. Bruh, he WAS a midget. That NephewJack Training Table LITERALLY ate up NephewJack...

      Sorry to scoop you, Soluna...But here's Germany's prelim squad: Of course, one has to wonder if this news about Özil and Gündogan hanging out with Erdogan makes their place in the 23 a bit iffy... I'd say slap them on the wrist, and include them. Too good not to be there... So...XI I would love to see (not sure HOW realistic): Neuer Hector - Boateng - Hummels/Rudiger - Kimmich Kroos Müller - Özil - Draxler - Sané Reus
    25. Luckily I've worked with fantastic GMs and other front office folks, and it's rare to find a misstep by those guys. But...the draft where I was left to my devices had me picking Patrick Mitchell at #21. He's still with the Broncos, and currently starting do to injury, but safe to say that he hasn't exactly panned out as hoped. He has had no progression three years into his pro career. At least he has settled into a decent role as our nickel DB. That was was a shit pick by yours truly.
