  1. I've been approved for Florida A&M. Thank you!

    1. Please list your email address and/or your reddit username at which you can be contacted. kirkham.jonathon@mail.ic.edu 2. 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? Florida A&M 4. Please select two backup teams (in descending order of preference) in case your first choice is unavailable. Portland State Vikings, Middle Tennessee (or anywhere of high need) 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 29 years old and I work in making sure various electronic devices won't give you cancer. I currently live in Southern Indiana but grew up in Illinois. I coached CMU for a couple of seasons but resigned when life got too busy. Since then I've poked in every once in a while to see how my old team was doing and otherwise. It's become habit enough in recent weeks that I've figured it might be time to just fully rejoin. 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? That is unfortunately still a grey area for me. I left the site because I was studying for an exam that would open up quite a few doors for my career, and I finally found out this week that I passed! So I have some more free time finally. That being said, since I left the site, my job has still been quite busy. I believe I can knock out the minimum requirements of running a team no problem, but I'm unsure if I can be super involved in creating media pieces, it would be sporadic spur of the moment things or helping out other conference members in coach interviews and things like that. Hence why I'm selecting an FCS team. If one of the FBS conferences would be ok with what I can guarantee and that really want to fill a spot, feel free to send me a PM and we can talk about it. 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. It's never been a problem. You can learn something from every loss. 8. How did you find out about this site? If recommended by a friend, please post his/her username. Joined after a long ago reddit thread. Have poked my head in since a hiatus last year.
  3. Good evening everyone, I am beyond happy tonight. I'm happy for the players who in most cases have experienced their second bowl win in a row. I'm happy for the fans in Mt. Pleasant and beyond who are happy with the success of this team. I'm happy for the bright future for this football program. I'd like to congratulate UTEP on their great season as well and for a well fought bowl game. However, I think in this moment of great happiness, I think it is best to announce I will be resigning as head coach of Central Michigan University. I feel it is time to hang it up and focus on other aspects of my life while some fresh blood can lead the team to the greatness it deserves.I'm beyond thankful for everyone that is and has been a part of this wonderful school. I've beyond proud of the young men I've coached, both past and present. I'm thankful for the fans who have supported us through thick and thin. The Chippewas are destined for great things in this football program. I regret I cannot lead them to their full potential, but I have full confidence that they will get there. Whether that is the MAC Championship, bowl success, or the players that go on to be leaders of whatever communities they may wind up in. I am, again, beyond happy to have been apart of it. Good night all, and as always, Fire up Chips! OOC: Early through this season, I took up a new job and moved to a new city. The demands of that job have taken their toll and I simply don't feel I will be able to contribute to both the development of a team with a lot of potential, nor would I be able to be a quality enough member as this site demands. I feel like I'm doing a disservice by going “bot” while there are plenty of existing and future members who could do a lot with talent this team has.I'm going to poke in every once in a while to track the progress of my croots, and if things calm down in my IRL job, I'd love to be able to return to coaching in the future. I've never really have experienced anything like CFBHC in my entire life. The sense of community, the kindness, the comradeship, and the whole scope of this very thing are something I've never experienced in my online life, perhaps even beyond that. I don't know if I've made much of a mark here, but let me just say: Thank you all for being who you are. Thank you for all of those who keep things running, who have help me learn the ropes of coaching a team, and to those who I have just had nice conversation with. CFBHC is a wonderful thing and I truly hope it is something I can return to in the future. But my goal was to make CMU as a place someone could take over and find success in. I think I've done that. Better yet, somebody will take that team and make their own mark on this wonderful site. Again, thank you all. Hope to see you all again soon.

  5. Good evening everyone, I'm thrilled to be the scout of the wonderful Vikings organization. I'm eager to get started in building a great NFLHC team and to be apart of this family. I open to the floor to any question anyone might have. Johnkirk
  6. My Brother, My Brother and Me is my regular when working out. Love The Adventure Zone as well. Pretty regular comedy fair but they occasionally into laughing fits that nothing really does anymore. For long drives or flights, it's Hardcore History for me.
  7. Not only a homer pick, but associated with years upon years of awful crap: But man, it's a well designed logo
  8. Thank you Jieret for everything. The MAC is in a fantastic place thanks to your efforts. the PAC is lucky to have you. Best of luck!
  9. MAC is 6-0 in Bowls so far. Whoop.
  10. Great game! Looks like you'll be bowling again very soon.
  11. Not much on my radar. Nothing really fell super low to the "Oh it's five bucks I'll try it" stage. I think I'll get Squad (Free weekend. Woo) and Transport Fever.
  12. GG! Not quite the finale I was hoping for but quite happy with this year and eager for some more pieces coming up next season. Having more than one person controlling my offensive production will be a relief. Good luck in the MAC Championship!
  13. Get you some E.R. Coleman.
  14. Congrats! Great game.
