    Howdy howdy howdy. I'm a bit of a night owl, so this will be something to get my football fix in etc. etc.​

    Enough intro of that sort...​

    I'm starting off at Western Kentucky (black uni's+small field+small school+new to FBS=suuure why not). I am also going to simulate the first season while only recruiting just to give it a different feel. It should also really help my initial contract goals :rolleyes:.​

    Please at any point feel free to give ideas for content you would like to see-- stuff I plan to do are:​

    • Of course report on all things related to my team
    • Occasionally report on all things going around the NCAA (maybe 2-3 times a year)
    • Report Award winners every year and maybe AA teams along with players of mine that get honored
    • Report all BCS bowl games every year.
    • Report players that we know that go pro early and transfers.
    • Any other ideas let me know.. I may think of more as I go.. I plan on doing the whole first season tonight though so you can all get an idea.

    WKU 2011-2012


    Western Kentucky comes into the 2011-12 season projected to finish second in the Sun Belt behind Troy, and ranked 79th nationally. Junior QB Kawaun Jakes, who started in 2010, will lead a Hilltopper offense that will need to find a replacement for All-Sun Belt performer Bobby Rainey who bolted for the NFL after a great 2010 campaign. Jakes is also the top returning Rusher for WKU. A tandem of backs in SR Braxston Miller and SO Keshawn Simpson will try to fill the void left by Rainey. Other weapons for the WKU offense will be JR WR Marcus Vazquez and JR TE and offensive Captain Jack Doyle. Doyle caught 67 balls last year, a school record. Doyle is also a pre-season All-Sun Belt selection. Offensive center Sean Conway and right guard Adam Smith also received All-Sun Belt honors.​

    Defensively, Western Kentucky would be fairly stout in conference play. A solid front 7, led by pre-season All-Sun Belt LE pick Jared Clendenin, combined with smart corners (Senior corner Derrius Brooks received pre-season All-Sun Belt honors) and two fifth year SRs are the safety positions could make for a fun year. FS Ryan Beard possesses great athleticism at the position, and can cover a lot of ground playing Cover 1. SS Mark Santoro, who is the defensive Captain, is a versatile player who coaches like to move around the field and keep around the ball. Look for these two to make an impact this season.​

    Georgia whips Western Kentucky 45-10

    Hilltopper Linebacker Baree Boyd upends Georgia RB Caleb King- Boyd caused a fumble on the play.

    Georgia started up the offense early, with Caleb King scoring 2 TD's and posting 100 yards in the 1st quarter. The 2nd quarter looked to bring the same, as Georgia continued to pound with King, but freshman WKU linebacker (name?) drilled King in the backfield to force a fumble that resulted in a WKU field goal. The next possession would see the Hilltopper defense intercept a pitch by Bulldog QB Aaron Murray (by who?), though WKU QB Kawaun Jakes would fumble when sacked. A shortened field would spell doom for WKU, as Caleb King rumbled for a long score, stiff arming a Hilltopper defender on his way to 6. A Jakes interception, on a great play by Georgia linebacker Houston nonetheless, ended a hopeful drive. Georgia would tack on a FG before the break to make the halftime score 24-3. The second half saw much more of the same, as WKU ended up bowing out to a final of 45-10.​

    "They played great defense and really excecuted on offense, that's a tough team to stop"​
    Coach Kasper on Georgia

    "It was a tough game, but we're going to move on and get ready for next week. You win some and you lose some, and we just happened to lose this one."​

    Western Kentucky tops Navy 27-14

    WKU Linebacker Tenerio Davis looks to lay the hit on Navy QB Kriss Proctor.. he did.

    Western Kentucky was able to bounce back from a tough season opening game at Georgia to beat Navy 27-14. Both teams scored on their opening possessions, with WKU QB Kawaun Jakes finding Jack Doyle on a corner route for a 34 yard score. Navy would answer with FB Alexander Teich rumbling for 78 yards, looking like a man child every step he took. The Hilltoppers would outscore Navy 17-7 in the second quarter however to take a 24-14 lead to the break. Jakes and company only put together a field goal drive together in the second half, but the WKU defense was making problems for the Navy offense, smashing into Midshipmen QB Kriss Proctor all day jarring loose balls and playing disciplined defense-- important against an option offense.​

    Western Kentucky fans are beginning to believe in the new pro style offense Coach Kasper has brought to the table, pointing to a solid finish last season in Sun Belt play, and today's big out of conference win. If WKU can play like they did today they should give regular Sun Belt powerhouse Troy a run for their money.​

    "Boy, we were sure laying the wood today. These guys were laying bigger hits than Andrew Bynum."​
    Coach Kasper on the defense

    "The hosses make our lives easy when they block like they did today, its all to them."​

    Hilltoppers "Top" Ragin' Cajuns 24-17

    WKU Wideout Marcus Vazquez

    This was a nice, gritty, first conference win for WKU, as they used some big plays from important players to get their first Sun Belt win. Scoring started slow in this one, with a Western Kentucky field goal being the only points in the first quarter. ULL would score on a field goal early in the second frame to tie it up, but WKU RB Braxston Miller would break off a 35 yard scatter that resulted in 6 points. Both teams scored within the last minute of the first half as well to bring the score to 17-10 at the break.​

    The third quarter saw both teams exchange shots, with neither coming up with any points-- a trend that lasted well into the fourth quarter. At the 2:00 mark in the final frame, ULL broke into the endzone to tie the game up on a 3 yard run. QB Kawaun Jakes said he couldn't wait to get the ball.​

    "You live for these moments," said Jakes after the game. "It's why we play. When coach looked at me after they scored I just gave him a nod like to tell em 'I got this. I went down and talked to Marcus [Vazquez] and Jack [Doyle] before we retook the field and just said 'we're going to get this done.'"​

    And did he ever. Jakes wasted no time, hitting Vazquez on a deep post. With two Ragin' Cajuns chasing him, Vazquez turned on the jets and headed for the endzone. WKU would go on to shut the ULL offense down and get the ball back, with Miller running out the rest of the clock; game.​

    "I'd be fibbing if I said I was happy we scored that early, but hey the defense didn't miss a beat. Jake is a special quarterback, and having guys like Marcus and Jack around him to catch everything just makes my job that much easier."​
    Coach Kasper on the game winning drive and QB Kawuan Jakes

    "There no way they gon catch me after I caught it, my eyes was set on tha endzone."​

    Garrett Scores 3 TD to Lead Hilltoppers past ULM

    WKU Wide Receiver John Garrett after his game winning score.

    It was a shootout in Monroe, and WKU had just enough in the tank to get it done and walk away with the victory, or so John Garrett had enough in his tank. The WKU offense was fairly slow outside of the senior wideout. Garrett started his scoring early, getting on the board in the first quarter on a 27 yard pass from QB Kawuan Jakes. ULM would answer in the second quarter with a TD and FG drive. Western Kentucky put together a solid 2 minutes drill to punch a TD in before the break however, bringing the score to 14-10 at the break.​

    Garrett would find the endzone within a minute of the second half starting, this time on a 54 yard streak from Jakes in which he showed great field vision. Garrett caught the seam, saw Marcus Vazquez upfield with him, dipped behind his fellow wideout, and a Warhawk defender just missed a diving tackle only to watch the 6'0 receiver streak for the endzone.​

    The final frame saw ULM answer a WKU FG with a back-to-back TD drives to tie the game at 24. Kawuan Jakes, feeling "just like last week" he said after the game, took the drive into his own hands this time. It was 1st and 10 with 37 seconds left, Jakes sitting in the typical WKU 4 WR spread formation with a RB in to block for him. Jakes took the low snap, and took his step back to read the defense. Feeling pressure after his 3 second timer went off, Jakes rolled to his right. Having just a defensive end to outrun to the edge, the athletic QB used his speed for almost the first time all season and turned the corner, racing for a 40 yard gain before being pushed out of bounds. A busted draw play and an incomplete pass later, Jakes was sitting at 3rd and 13 from 38 yards out. Coach Kasper called in a play he had been waiting to use all season long: Y Shallow Cross, which sends Garrett up the sideline on a wheel. Garrett caught the wheel route, and there wasn't a defender within 8 yards of him. He dashes to the endzone to take the lead with 30 seconds left. WKU would go on to win the game by a final tally of 31-24.​

    "I've been wanting to call that play for so long, its just so fun."​
    An ecstatic Coach Kasper on the winning play call

    "Sometimes things just go yo way out there, I thank God above fo givin me da opportunity to make them plays today. Offensive line did uhh great job of blockin out there and givin Kawuan time ta find us downfield. Its all gravy when he's got da time."​

    Will do an around the NCAA update here in a week or two but in other WKU news:
    Willie McNeal - Broken Finger - 2 Weeks
    Keshawn Simpson - Strained Shoulder - Probable (has played last 2 games vs ULL and ULM)

    No recruits have signed yet, but somehow I moved up to two star last year so getting interest form 3 stars could make this class pretty juicy.

    WKU Routes Sun Belt Favorite Troy 37-17

    QB Kawuan Jakes celebrates his final touchdown of the game to cap off the rout of Sun Belt rival Troy.

    Another WKU wideout went off for 3 TD's, this time a more familiar name. Junior wingman Marcus Vazquez hauled in a trio of touchdown passes from QB Kawuan Jakes in the rout, while also catching a season high 9 passes. The Hilltoppper's leading receiver did a great job of working the middle of the field, and using his wide frame to catch a range of balls thrown his way. Vazquez said he was playing this game with a "definite chip on his shoulder" because Troy had passed on him during his recruitment.​

    "Oh everytime we play Troy I buck up a little more. When a team tells me dat I ain't good enough to play fo em, and I git a shot to play a againsem, you bedda belee I'm bringem my A game every down. It don't matta if its first and ten or third and foreva, I'm lookin to embarass my man."​

    Along with Vazquez, the entire WKU team seemed to play a great game as a unit. Safety Mark Santoro returned an interception for a touchdown, his first touchdown on the year. Freshman MLB Baree Boyd turned in another game as one of the team's top tacklers as well as nabbing his first collegiate interception. Boyd has been pretty salty in the middle for a defense that is much improved. All in all hats are off to the Western Kentucky football team, this was a big win.​


    "Marcus [Vazquez] is just a special player, but everyone here reporting this game already knows that."​
    Coach Kasper after the game

    "Who don't like scoring a defensive touchdown, hell we hardly ever touch the damn ball."​

    Hilltoppers Slip Past FIU 27-24


    Things looked very rough early on for the Hilltoppers, who entered the day undefeated in Sun Belt play at 3-0. Florida International jumped out to a 10 lead in the first quarter on a Jack Griffin FG and a 72 yard TD pass from QB Wesley Carroll to WR Wayne Times. The Golden Panthers would add another touchdown on a pass from Carroll to All-Sun Belt wideout Ty Hilton before half time.​

    "Our heads were hangin going into halftime, playin' that bad in fronna the home crowd can really get ya down. Coach told us that if started executin' on both side of da ball we'd get back inta the game. That was a big moment in the locker room, fudda whole team. A gut check win like this can really putcha on a streak, we feelin like we can take any challenge on after that."​

    Things didn't get any easier in the third quarter, but WKU was able to get on the board on a touchdown pass from QB Kawuan Jakes over the middle to TE Jack Doyle. Spirits were starting to rise at that point, even with a 17-7 defecit. The home crowd was just starting to fire up again, but at the end of the third quarter FIU RB Ariel Martinez capped off a masterful Golden Panther drive with a one yard touchdown run.​

    Facing a 24-7 fourth quarter challenge, many Western Kentucky fans left the stadium. Players looked around, watching people walk out and it seemed to light a fire under them.​

    "It isn't about the fans not being loyal, it is about our kids playing up to the standard we have established here. Down 24-7 at home is unacceptable whoever we are facing, I don't care if its Alabama....you defend your home turf," said Coach Kasper​

    Hilltopper Kiicker Casey Tinius knocked in a 37 yard field goal with 5:45 left in the fourth to bring it to 24-10. A turnover later Western Kentucky added a touchdown on freshman wide receiver Andy Johnson's first catch for a score of his career; 24-17. FIU started to mount a drive the next possession, but was eventually stopped by a hungry defense. The next drive by WKU led to another Tinius field goal, this time from 24 yards out. Many fans wanted Coach Kasper to go for the 6 points that close to the endzone, but he took the safe route.​

    Coach Kasper was clinging to his three timeouts with 2:30 to go on defense. A few runs later FIU had leaked the clock down to 1:07 as they snapped the ball on a new first and ten. Panther running back Darrian Mallary took the hand off to the right and was met in the backfield by freshman linebacker Baree Boyd. Boyd was able to dislodge the ball from Mallary's grip, though the majority of the players on the field didn't even see the ball come out. The ball laid there for a second or two before WKU DT Jamaracus Allen scooped it up and rumbled 29 yards to the endzone with blockers escorting the whole way. 27-24 would prove to be the final tally.​


    "I'm still not convinced that actually happened."​
    WKU DT Jamarcus Allen on his scoop-and-score for the victory.

    "We never quit believing, Coach did a great job of keeping our heads in the game all four quarters. If you haven't bought into what we're doing here, its time to."​
    WKU S Mark Santoro on the team's 20 point fourth quarter turn around.

    WKU Drops first Sun Belt Game vs MTSU


    A tough road crowd made it hard for WKU's offense to get anything going, and the Hilltoppers couldn't outlast the Blue Raiders, losing 21-14. MTSU QB Logan Kilgore led the way for the Raiders, going 27-35 for 338 yards and 3 TDs. The 6'3 junior did a great job all game of zipping passes to his receivers in the Raider's spread offense, even overcoming a heavy rain throughout the game. Many were hoping for WKU to get their ground game going given the conditions, but RB Braxston Miller was battling knick-knack injuries throughout the game, and RB Keshawn Simpson has yet to fully overcome a nagging ankle. Miller was still able to put up 67 yards on 19 carries, a respectable output.​

    Freshman MLB Baree Boyd put in another great game for the Hilltoppers, turning in 9 solo tackles, 3 coming for a loss, and 1 forced fumble. Baree is currently the leader throughout the NCAA in tackles, a spectacular feat no doubt for a redshirt freshman (I don't even control him guys, he's just efficient for a 67 overall haha). WKU will need to bounce back with a big game against a good North Texas offense in two weeks after a bye.​

    Western Kentucky Grinds out a 32-25 Win in Denton

    WKU RB Keshawn Simpson barrels into the endzone.

    Western Kentucky's offense was in full service today, as they hung 32 points on the road against North Texas. Running back Braxston Miller went over 100 yards on the ground, quarterback Kawuan Jakes nearly hit 250 yards passing, and seven different Hilltoppers caught a pass form Jakes. Coach Kasper said he would have preferred the defense to have played a little better, especially down the stretch with the offense playing so well.​

    "We kind of let them hang around, especially on defense. On the road in conference games you really need to be able to put that nail in the coffin, which we have been able to do fairly well all year. I don't know what it was today, but we didn't execute very well down the stretch on D. Part of that has to come full circle on my shoulders as well, everyone has a bit of blame to take, but hey we won."​


    "Braxston did a great job on the ground today. We have been kind of using a running back by comittee system all year, so its nice when one guy steps up. Hell Keshawn hung two touchdowns today as well, both of them did very well for us."​
    Coach Kasper on his running backs output on the day.

    "Makes my life real easy when we can run that ball like that."​
    QB Kawuan Jakes on the efficient running game.

    Offensive Leaders​
    QB Kawuan Jakes - 17-34, 245 yds, TD​
    RB Braxston Miller - 25 att, 121 yds, TD​
    RB Keshawn Simpson - 5 att, 17 yards, 2 TDs​
