    #5 Michigan Wolverines (9-1)
    Coach: HovatheGodMC

    Michigan is back where they belong for the first time in a few years, on top of the B1G Ten and in the national title hunt. This is the first year of the new Run N Shoot offense and thus far has been a success, getting us into the top 5 and past Iowa for a trip to Indy. Our offense ranked 1st in the Big Ten and 6th in the Nation this year. The defense also has been solid ranked 3rd in the Big Ten and 10th in the nation. The season will come down to getting past OSU at home in 2 weeks and then winning the Big Ten which looks like it may be vs Notre Dame for the first time in Hova's coaching tenure. If we can win that it will be rose bowl and possible title if teams like VTech and TCU lose. This team should be very strong next season with few seniors leaving and HOPEFULLY a returning Tremblay at QB.



    #15 Iowa Hawkeyes (6-3)
    Coach: Uncleho

    Iowa is having somewhat of a down year dropping all 3 user games this season, 2 to the SEC and 1 to Michigan. The season is not over yet though as they still have another chance to impress on the road vs the #7 Georgia Bulldogs. The Iowa offense is 7th in the Big Ten but the defense is #1 in the Big Ten and #4 in the nation, the strong point of this team. The downfall of the offense has once again been the QB who can not stop throwing INTs. With all chance at the Big Ten gone they can only hope to finish out with all Ws and push ahead of OSU for a BCS bowl but the more realistic destination looks like the Outback Bowl.






    #8 Notre Dame (9-1)
    Coach: MoonBbad


    The Irish are having one of their best seasons in awhile despite losing to OSU for the millionth time in a row. That is the only lost on the season and if Michigan can knock off OSU, Notre Dame may be heading back to Indy for the first time since Coach Moons introduction season. The offense and defense for the Irish are right in the middle of the pack in the Big Ten and the power of the offense seems to be in the ground game led by HB C. Riley. They end the season at Wiscy and at Stanford with a rivalry game.



    #13 Ohio St (6-3)
    Coach: AbolishtheFed

    OSU is having an offseason of sorts with 3 losses to BYU, Washington, and Nebraska. They still however are rated #13 in the nation. With a games vs #10 Penn St and Michigan left they could climb back into the Big Ten picture. With a win at Michigan and over ND this year they could still make the trip to Indy. They are struggling on offense this year ranked 10th in the Big Ten. The defense has been slightly better ranked 6th in the Big Ten. The success of their season will come down to "The Game".

    Nice work HovaTheGodMC.

    The Buckeyes are hitting stride now. True Soph QB Simmons has 7 TD and 1 INT in the past two games against MSU and PSU. The Buckeyes beat previously ranked #10 Penn State 35-14 in the 'Shoe. The last two games of the year are Illinois and scUM. The Buckeye defense has performed solidly in user games, but struggled against computer QBs and RBs ranked lower than 80, so those games could be interesting, despite the national rankings.

    2018 Ohio St Preview

    The offense returns 8/11 starters from last season. But, the starters lost were the biggest weapons is the passing game. All five offensive lineman return from the previous season.

    QB - Jr David Simmons* (87) returns after starting the last 12 games of the season last year. Simmons was able to bring home a B1G title, but faltered in the Rose Bowl. Jr Vernon Davis (82) and Sr Tyler Jones (82) will back up Simmons.

    HB - Sr Rashaun McIntyre* (92) returns after a subpar junior season. McIntyre has all the attributes to have a great season, but needs to perform up to expectations this year. He is backed up by RS Sr Jason Dodds (88) and RS Jr Albert Lloyd (86) will back up McIntyre.

    FB - RS Jr Marcus Hogan** (93) has started for two straight seasons. He was weak in the running game last year and worked all offseason to improve his strength and footwork.

    WR - RS So Aaron Hawk (88) and Jr Ricky Morris (85) take over the starting receiver roles. Hawk had some success last year in the slot role. This year's slot role will be filled by 6'4" 257 lb RS Sr Demetrius Johnson (84).

    TE - RS Sr Craig Moss (85) takes over as the starting TE. Moss is more of a run blocker than pass catcher.

    OL - The entire starting 5 linemen from last year came back: LT Danny Johnson* (90), LG Brian Dixon** (87), C Adam Paris** (94), RG Alphonso Stephenson* (89), and RT James Douglas** (91).


    The defense returns 7/11 starters from last season. The Buckeyes will move from a 3-3-5 defense to 4-3 this season.

    DE - RS Jr Craig McFarland* (91) will be one of the anchors of the defensive line this season. McFarland had 12 TFL and 6 sacks last season. RS Sr Michael Turner (90) is a first year starter. Both end positions will be backed up by So Jonathan Coley (83).

    DT - Sr Chris White (92) should be a beast this season in the middle of the defense. RS Jr Clifton Murphy (87) will hold down the other tackle position. RS So Jonathan Morales (85) will back up both positions.

    OLB - RS So Eric Tyler* (87) returns this season, after his freshman All America campaign last season. RS So Todd McClelland (83) will hold down the ROLB position.

    MLB - So Mike West* (84) comes off an efficient season, where he was named to the freshman All America team. RS So Dustin Shelby (83) will provide strong backup this season.

    CB - Both starting CBs were named to the freshman All America team last season. So Ron Brown* (83) and So Robert Stevenson* (82) hope to improve on their performance from last season.

    FS - RS So Bryan Garrett* (88) was also named to the freshman All America team last season. Garrett's 6'3" 209 lb frame allows him to be strong in both the running and passing game.

    SS - RS Jr Jeff Hancock* (88) returns off a season where he had 11 TFL, 2 INT, and 9 pass deflections.

    Irish Win First Game of Season
    Notre Dame 38
    Michigan St 10
    South Bend, IN -- The Irish come into the season with one goal, to win the national championship. The pundits disagree and don't think the Irish have the talent to match up with the elite teams of the SEC and even B1G, however Coach Kelly disagrees. "I feel we have a great shot to win it. I feel this team is poised to do something special. We have a great group of young men on this team with great character and great talent, I think we will surprise some people this year." One player on the team that has been waiting for his chance to break out is former 5* recruit HB Dan Hart who started the season by gaining 214 yards on the ground and scoring four touchdowns. "Yeah I had a great game. I've been waiting for my chance, and have been patient and I am really enjoying it now that it's finally here. I hope to have many games like this where I can contribute and help my team get the W." Hart has always had the talent, he just was a victim of playing behind a talented Irish backfield. This season he gets to take the reins and looks like he might capitalize.
    The Irish started the game off with two straight scores both coming from Dan Hart rushing touchdowns. Michigan St was able to strike back with a long 61 yard field goal to make the score 14-3 Irish. The Irish rattled off two more scores before half one being another long touchdown run, 61 yards to be exact, from Dan Hart.
    The third quarter the Irish were able to put the game away scoring two more touchdowns before MSU scored another TD with :50 seconds left to close the game out.
    Player of the Game
    HB Dan Hart
    26 att 214 yards 4 TD
    HB Darrin Scott
    4 att 104 yards 1 TD

    Michigan Wins Opener on Road

    #8 Michigan 37
    Georgia Tech 7


    Michigan opened the season down in Georgia this year and faced the triple option jackets. The defense pretty much shut down the attack on the ground and make big plays all day including 3 INTs and a few FFs. The offense was much more balanced the first game of the season with HB Williamson rushing for 71 YDS and a TD and QB Tremblay throwing for 224 YDS and 2 TDs with no INTS, which is a good sign. WR Freeman had a 112 YD day and 2 TDs leading the WR corps. Michigan will head home next week for the home opener, hosting #10 TCU.

    2018 Michigan Wolverines


    QB - (94) QB M.J Tremblay returns for his Senior season as is the best QB Michigan has ever had. He has 99 THA and 96 THP so he can make all the throws, its just a matter of having the time to make them. The new offense should take some pressure off of him as well. Michigan has two 94 OVR backup QBs as well who are very capable of starting.
    HB- (88) HB Stephen Williamson returns for his JR season with 97 speed and 99 accel. He will once again be the feature back in an offense that hopes to get more yards on the ground after only rushing for 911 yards last season. His backup Abrams is much in the same mold of a speed back.





    WRs - The WR corps should be much improved this season with (90) Nate Rogers, (87) JD Freeman, (87) Brandon Sharpe, and All American (82) Darryl Dunn. They are all young and upcoming talents with alot of speed mixed in. Let's just hope they can catch the ball better this season.





    TE - This is the weakest position on the team. (77) Mike White is the only TE on the roster. This could be a problem in the run game and TE sets. The production will be lacking here.



    Oline - The Michigan Oline continues to progress and this year we will be fielding out best yet with (90) LT Washington, (91) LG Smiley, (97) C Weisbecker, (94) RG Inman, and (87) RT Barrett.





    DEs - We have two solid DEs in the 3-4 this year with (89) RE Charles Rice and (90) LE Darnell Porter. There is solid depth behind them as well.

    DT - This years DT will be standout SR (92) Justin Davis. He had a slump year last season and is looking to increase production and disruption in the middle of the 3-4 this season.


    OLB - The LOLB will be held down by Freshman (86) Alex Reed while the other side will be Senior (87) Sean Smith who has great speed and accel.


    MLB - The middle of the 3-4 will be occupied by (86) MLB Jared Davenport and (85) Zach Henderson. Our LB corps is very young, but solid. They should work well together and can hopefully contain the Big Ten run game.





    CBs - The CBs will be led by (83) Tommy Salas and (82) Chase Graham. They are nearly identical with 94 speed and solid cover corners. As for depth alot of it will come from backup safeties where we are really heavy with talent.





    FS - Sophomore (84) Jimmy Ashley will get the start this year with his incredible athleticism. He has 99 speed and can also lay the load with the big hit. He is also a solid tackler, looks to have a big season in the secondary. SS- Senoir (94) Darrius Simon will be the starting SS. He has solid speed and tackling skills. Should be a good compliment to Ashley in the secondary. K/P - Both duties will be done by JR (96) Sam Turner. He has 99 Kick Power for punt and kicks. Should get the job done on special teams. He is also the place kicker.

    2018 Iowa Hawkeyes

    QB: All of Iowa's losses last year come back to poor QB play by then FR (RS) Danny Stuckey. Now as a Sophomore (89) he has a year of experience which hopefully will help his decision making because he can make all the throws, his physical traits aren't in question (96 thp, 95 tha).

    HB: With the early departure of Kevin Singleton, Iowa loses a great runner in their style of offense, hopefully the guys can step up and produce. SR (RS) HB Cole Fox (91), who sat out last year after transferring from Tennessee, will get the early nod as the starter. A 6'0" 202 pound back who is fast (95 spd, 96acc) and has the elusiveness to match (96), he isn't usually what the Hawkeyes field at running back so it will be interesting to see if he can hold up. SR (RS) Dwayne Berry (90) who has played well in his career backing up Singleton and even starting half a dozen games due to injury is the next man down. He has all the skills of a good running back (92 spd, 91agl, 97acc, 94 elu, 95 bcv) but weighs 177lbs soaking wet.

    FB: JR Chris Bell returns and will be a three year starter. Still not quite as good as we want him to be at run blocking, he is 6'1" and 251 pounds and can be a hammer when he gets a hold of a defender (92 imp blk).

    WR: Iowa has their best two receivers at the same time maybe ever. SR Corey Morton (95) is the number one and has the receiving skills to be a real threat (98cth, 95cit, 92rls, 91spcth, 99rte) even though he doesn't have great speed (88). JR (RS) Ross Petit (93) is in the same mold, not a burner (88spd), but a good skill set (95cth, 92cit, 89rls, 90spcth, 97rte). JR Raul Upshaw (89) will man the slot and is the speedster (96spd, 97acc) for Iowa, he has decent hands (86cth) and also runs great routes (97rte). Iowa only has 5 receivers on the roster so this position doesn't have a lot of depth and will have to look to add some new guys in recruiting.

    TE: SR Rhema Jordan (93) returns as the starter for Iowa and is just as solid as ever, a 6'6" 271 pounder who has ok hands (76), runs good routes (87), and is a solid run blocker (88rbf, 86rbs, 87imp). Iowa added 3 freshmen this year and they may all see time on the field. FR Steve Hall (80) is the number 2 now and is basically a clone of Jordan, Hall needs to work on his hands but is solid everywhere else. FR Clifton Pettway (75) is a straight receiving TE, while FR George Burns (75) is more balanced like Jordan or Hall, but needs to work on his footwork if he wants to see more time.

    OL: JR (RS) C Kelly Harper (96) is back and is the dominant force in the middle of Iowa's running game. SO (RS) Donald Ferguson (90) mans the LG position with FR (RS) Jordan Bradley (85) at RG. SR (RS) Will Davis (93) was moved to LT this year to watch Stuckey's blind side which leaves FR (RS) Paul Mooney (82) at RT. Pretty solid unit built to run right at a defense, hopefully the young guys like Bradley and Mooney improve over the course of the year to really shore this group up.

    DE: A position of youth the past two years is now a position of experience for Iowa. JR RE Tommy Riley (89) returns and plays the run pretty well to compliment JR LE C.J. Garrett (87) coming off the other side to rush the passer. SO Jordan McNeal (85) backs them up along with JR Matt Arnold (83).

    DT: SR (RS) Kerry Goins (92) is the man in the middle this year, after sitting out last year due to transfer, he will have to step up and produce and looks to have the skill set to do it. SR Mark Horne (88) will be in the other tackle spot after being a career backup. With 3 seniors here it is imperative that Iowa gets some recruits in this year to avoid a gaping hole next year.

    OLB: After missing all of last year when he broke his collarbone in week 1, JR (RS) ROLB Mike Allen (94) returns and brings his outstanding speed with him. JR (RS) LOLB Joe Flores returns to start his second year on the other side of Allen. A position of depth with SO Cody Branch (85) and FR (RS) Steve Suggs (81) behind them.

    MLB: SO Anthony Smith (84) returns as the starter after having a solid freshmen year in the middle. With two seniors who are career backups behind him, this is another area of concern i recruiting for the Hawkeyes.

    CB: With injury and youth making this position a bit of a weakness last year, three seniors with three underclassmen behind them make this a strength for the defense this year. SR (RS) Ryan Taylor (95) is the standout here and looks to make a name for himself after sitting out last year when he transferred over from Michigan. The only knock against him is his 5'9" height, otherwise he has the skill set of a lock-down corner (97spd, 92agl, 96acc, 99pur, 99prc, 98mcv, 97zcv, 89prs). SR Jake Booker (91) will be the other starting cornerback and is looking to have a great season as well. SR (RS) Jeremy Paul (89) will be the nickle corner this year to round out the top three guys. SO (RS) Matthew Holland (86) will come in for the dime package when needed.

    FS: Losing Robert Ivey hurts, but SR (RS) Drew Jordan (89) played well last year when he filled in for an injured Ivey for 5 games, so we are happy that he gets his chance to play the whole season. JR (RS) Cole Hall (87) is backing him up this year.

    SS: JR (RS) Tyler Parham (93) is back and now has two years worth of experience and will hopefully use that to have a great year. Bo Fowler (84) and Ben Green (84) will be competing for the #2 spot.

    K: Dickerson is gone and had a great career after he used his first year to strengthen his leg. FR Ike Harrison (85) will use his first year to work on his accuracy (76) since he already has a monster leg (96 kpw).

    P: JR David Baker (89) is back with his monster leg as well (99 kpw) and has some decent accuracy (80) to help pin those kicks deep.

    #6 Virginia Tech 24
    #5 Iowa

    Tech scored 21 points in the second quarter, including 2 TD in the last 2:08 of the half, and had a 21-10 lead at the half. One Stuckey interception and 5 passes defensed against Iowa made me long for the new ball trajectories they keep talking about in next years version. These guys were open but the balls never made it past the second level (especially that ridiculous pick). Tech was also 11/14 passing at the half and their running back was averaging 4.5+ yards a carry.

    The second half went better for Iowa as Stuckey was able to get it going a little bit, which opened up the running game some as well. Iowa running back Chris Fox fumbled a ball away and Stuckey was picked again in the fourth, this time on a deep fly route, fortunately Iowa forced a punt after that. Iowa scored 20 points in the second half (7 in the third, 13 in the fourth) and held Tech to just 3 second half points in the come from behind win.

    Stuckey ended the day 13/24 for 241 yards and 3 TD passes to go with the 2 interceptions. WR Corey Morton caught 6 passes for 102 yards and 2 TDs while TE Rhema Jordan caught 5 for 98 yards and a TD. HB Fox carried 21 times for 102 yards.

    #12 Ohio St 31
    #16 Tennessee 10

    The Buckeyes came into Knoxville and jumped out to an early 21-0 lead in the first quarter. The Bucks intercepted 3 balls in that quarter and returned 2 of them for TD. However, Tennessee would battle back in the second quarter, scoring 10 unanswered points going into the break. With the defense on the field so much in the first quarter, the offense was never able to find a rhythm in this game. The Buckeyes finished the game with only 9 first downs.

    Ohio St won the toss to start the game and elected to defer choice to the second half. The first Buckeye drive ended with a 53 yard FG, to move the lead back to 2 TD. From there, the Buckeye defensive line would take over the game. The Buckeye d-line finished the day with 5 sacks and 1 forced fumble. Ohio St elected to play Tresselball, minus one long completed pass at the beginning of the fourth quarter that would put them in the Tennessee redzone and set up the final score of the game.

    GG gwill. Tough to play human games when your QB is a turnover machine. Good luck in the SEC.

    It's hard to win when you can't score. My QB put us in a hole but the defense came through when needed. We only gave up 251 yards of offense, but 6 turnovers will kill you. Being a B- team, we don't have the luxury of just giving the ball away to the good teams.

    #3 Iowa 31
    #8 Oregon 17

    Iowa started off the game with a nice drive but then stumbled in the red zone only to come away with a 20 yard FG (4:11). Oregon would put together its own drive next but also only come away with a FG (2:06), this one from 49 yards, to tie the game at 3-3. Neither team would be able to score points until the end of the half. Oregon had a long drive at the end to chew up some clock and then punch it in the endzone on a two yard run to go ahead 10-3 with 0:53 seconds left in the half. Iowa had a nice drive with the highlight being a deep 56 yard pass to WR Raul Upshaw that put the Hawkeyes in position to score. They would capitalize on it with an 8 yard TD run by HB Chris Fox to tie the game at 10-10 with 0:27 seconds in the half. That was also the halftime score.

    Both teams came out and played better defense in the third quarter, which resulted in more punting by each team. It wasn't until near the end of the third quarter when Iowa scored on a 7 yard TD pass by QB Danny Stuckey to WR Corey Morton (1:17) that the tie was broken and Iowa went up 17-10. Oregon would start struggling offensively as they became a little one dimensional in the fourth and Iowa was able to get pressure on the QB. The Hawkeyes would add another TD when Fox scored from 11 yards out (4:27) to put the lead at two TDs 24-10. On the next possession Iowa OLB Mike Allen intercepted an Oregon pass and went 39 yards for the TD that basically put this game out of reach with only 2:03 left in the game. The Ducks would get on the board late again as they connected on a 67 yard play action TD pass to cut the lead to 31-17. They almost also got the onside attempt back, but Iowa was able to run out the clock.

    I would give HB Chris Fox the game ball for his 25 carry 140 yards and 2 TD day.

    Good game Will Atkinson.

    uncleho You played a great game on both sides of the ball..This is what I expected coming from a top 5 Iowa team..Once Cameron Davis went out with a concussion it really changed the game, i was unable to reestablish the run and got very one dimensional especially once you went up by two scores.. Chris Fox really took over the game late with some good hard running, congrats and good luck on your season.. I would like to come to Iowa next year!

    Yeah losing Davis was big, he is a great back, it still irks me that I lost him to cnic all those years ago. Losing top talent from your state sucks. Especially when your state is Iowa and their is hardly ever any 5 star talent lol.

    cnic was unstoppable on the recruiting trails every season. His teams at Bama in last year's game were ridiculous.

    Michigan 21
    Notre Dame 17


    The rare matchup occured this year in the Holy Land with Michigan coming out on top. Michigan struck first on the ground with a 72 YD TD run by HB Williamson. ND would answer back with a long run of their own. Michigan would then play terrible for most of the game having a terrible day on offense with penalties, drops, and stupid interceptions. The play of the game was a user pick 6 by FS Ashley which would be the final point scored and the game and the go ahead score. After this it was a defensive struggle capped by Michigan running the clock out at the end with the run game. GG Moon. Michigan now hosts Tennessee in the Big House in week 5.

    Michigan gets it's second user win a row, this time at home vs Gwill and the Volunteers. The Michigan offense was pretty solid throughout the day with Tremblay throwing 2 TDs but 2 INTs as well. Tennessee was very solid on offense as well but big turnovers dictated this game. Michigan got a huge fumble in the redzone they returned for a TD Basically putting this one out of reach. Michigan hosts the U next week.
