    Offensive Captains
    JR RB Robbie Rouse 5'7" 185lbs
    SR WR Jamel Hamler 6'1" 205lbs

    2010 Record:8-5
    Coach: Pat Hill
    Offensive Coordinator: Coach Seabass
    Defensive Coordinator: Randy Stewart

    Offensive Starters Lost/Returning: 7/4
    Defensive Starters Lost/Returning: 6/5

    Top Returners: DL Logan Harrell, K Kevin Goessling, WR Jamel Hamler, OL Bryce Harris, LB Travis Brown, RB Robbie Rouse, QB Derek Carr

    Strengths: Despite only returning four offensive starters, the Bulldogs have some solid offensive weapons in the lineup. Rouse is entering his junior season and has demonstrated his ability to be a focal point for the offense. Jamel Hamler leads some talented receivers who should help Fresno State stretch the field. Kicker Kevin Goessling has been a steady performer under pressure. He has hit five-of-seven field goals from 50 yards or longer and 51-of-64 field goals during his Fresno State career.
    Defensive lineman Logan Harrell earned first team All-WAC honors in 2010 and returns to lead the Fresno State defense. Linebackers Travis Brown and Ben Jacobs both bring considerable experience to the heart of the defense. Brown is the team’s top returning tackler.

    One OC from a rival WAC team had this to say about the Bulldogs:

    Defensive Captains: Vinny Curry (DE), Omar Brown (Safety)
    Offensive Captains: Martin Ward (RB), Aaron Dobson (WR)
    Tough Road for 2011- Marshall opens with WVU, hosts Southern Miss, travels to Ohio, hosts VaTech, and hten travels back to back against Louisville and UCF. Houston, Tulsa and ECU also make this schedule a tough one to climb.

    Marshall will benefit from the return of 9 starters, 7 of their top 10 tacklers, as well as every player that intercepted a pass last year. Emphasis will be till fill whole's at linebacker and tackle.

    Entire starting defensive backfield returning for 2011.

    Wide receiver veteran core returning, yet will be receiving the ball from a new gunslinger. With Brian Anderson's graduation, the Herd will have a three way battle for the starting gig. Redshirt freshman AJ Graham, sophomore Eddie Sullivan, and freshman enrolle Cornelius Jones.


    Marshall played 28 redshirt/true freshman in 2010. 2nd to Florida in 2010.

    Top recruit for 2011: Tommy Shuler WR from Central (Miami, FL)

    Five players named to 2010 C-USA All Conference Teams.

    City/State: Houston, Texas
    Founded: 1912
    Enrollment: 5,556
    Stadium: Rice Stadium
    Capacity: 47,000

    First year of football: 1912
    All-time record: 432-556-32
    All-time bowl record: 5-4
    Last postseason appearance: 2008 Texas Bowl

    Team Info:
    Overall record last year: 4-8
    Conference record/finish: 3-5 (T-4th West)
    Offense: Spread
    Deffense: 4-2-5
    Starters returning: Offense-9 / Deffense-9

    HC: David Bailiff
    OC: Big Slick
    DC: Chcuk Driesbach

    Offensive Captain: QB Nick Fanuzzi (SR)
    Deffensive Captain: SS Travis Bradshaw (SR)

    Rice will return 9 starters. The entire offensive line is returning along with startng QB Fanuzzi and HB McGuffie. Last year Fanuzzi threw 151/241 1,681yrds with 11 tds and 9 ints. Under new offense coordinator Big Slick the Rice owls will look to open up their offense and expect for Fanuzzi's numbers to be much improved. The Owls will also lean on hometown boy Sam McGuffie who rushed for 947 yrds on 197 carries with 6 tds last year. The offensive scheme spreading the field will allow McGuffie to find open holes to run through.

    Rice will return 9 starters. The defense will be lead by the secondary which returns both CBs and safeties. The linebackers will be anchored by Trey Briggs. The defense will look to counter its lack of size with speed. The owls will need to fly to the ball and gang tackle. Rice is returning the leading 2 tacklers from last year in Travis Bradshaw(60 tkls) and Corey Frazier(55 tkls).

    Top 2011 Recruits:
    OLB - Nick Elder 6'1 210lbs
    DE - Sam Michaels 6'2 230lbs

    2011 Outlook:

    Rice will look to open up their offensive scheme under first year offensive coordinator Coach Slick. HC Bailiff has turned over complete control of the offense to Coach Slick. The Rice offense will look to spread the field, but remain balanced witht the run and pass. The defense will look to attack. The defensive scheme will be built on pressuring the quarterback and creating disruptions in the backfield.

    Rice looks to make some noise in CUSA and make it to a bowl game.

    Defensive Captains: DB Travaun Nixon, LB Jamie Irving
    Offensive Captain: RB Joe Banyard

    Expectations: The Miners look to take advantage of a relatively weak OOC schedule, before facing off against tough in-conference opponents Rice, Southern Miss, UCF, and ECU

    UTEP returns leading DB Travaun Nixon, but will look to improve on a defense that allowed 28 points and over 184 yards rushing per game

    RB Joe Banyard will look to add to his junior year where he led the team in rushing, but he will have to do it while the team breaks in a new QB as starter Trevor Vittatoe graduated. The QB battle will be between junior transfer Nick Lamaison and freshman Javia Hall.

    Top recruit for 2011: DE Roy Robertson from Grand Prairie, Texas

    New Coach: Looking for youth on the coaching staff, UTEP hired RyanC as their new OC for 2011. Coach RyanC will bring a revitalized look to the offense according to reports, but the new offense is under wraps with the only leaked information being it will feature the pistol formation.

    The LA Tech Bulldogs


    Beat Southern Miss!!​

    OC - Wes Kindurys - will run the no-huddle Texas Tech Air Raid.​
    DC - will be searching for a good 3-4 coach.​

    We're going to force teams to play our pace and will take any oppurtunity to put our oppenents away. You might not like it, but within the rules of the league, I'm going to try and get under your skin on the field whether that be converting 2 points or going for it on 4th down. Season 1 is going to determine whether or not the Bulldogs can get on top early and stay on top. I'm committed to my school and will not leave until we bring back multiple championships. Roll Dogs​

    Recruiting is going to be an incredible battle, but nothing brings in more recruits than WINS.​

    Take no prisoners :)

    The Southern Miss Golden Eagles have been preparing for the upcoming 2011 football season. The spring is turning into summer and the Hub City is hotter than ever with anticipation for the upcoming Golden Eagle football season. Although the team has lost DeAndre Brown, Fedora and company are happy to have Austin Davis back under center and a solid group of starters on both sides of the ball returning. New to the team, is Offense Coordinator C. Miller. Coach Miller had this to say today about joining Fedora and company and his expectations for his offense this season.

    "I am very excited to be a part of the USM family. When Coach Fedora called me and asked me to join the team I couldn't say no. I remember the days when Coach Bower built this program as I grew up in Central Mississippi. I have seen Coach Fedora preach his philosophy and recruit the state endlessly and I liked what the program was about and the direction he was headed in with these Golden Eagles. Offensively we are going to keep it simple. Great blocking, running the ball to set up the pass. We are going to be a physically tough offense. I know everyone is seeing the spread, air raid, and run and shoot take over college football, but I have always believed the best way to get someone's attention is to punch them in the mouth. We are continuing to push these guys this summer with a great strength and conditioning program to back up our offensive philosophy and we are counting the days down to September 3rd when we open up at THE ROCK with Louisiana Tech under the lights."

    Offensive Captains

    SR RB Jasmin Hopkins 5'9" 172lbs

    2010 Record:11-3 (8-0)
    Coach: Coach Chump
    Offensive Coordinator: Coach Riptides
    Defensive Coordinator: Coach Suck
    Offensive Starters Lost/Returning: 5/6
    Defensive Starters Lost/Returning: 6/5

    Top Returners: C - Scott Wedige, OG - Joe Pawlak, OT - Trevor Olson, WR - Willie Clark

    Strengths: The offensive side of the ball has several key guys returning. Most notably the RS SR QB Harnish. The little spark plug at RB this season will be SR Jasmin Hopkins who has waited his turn to see the field. They have a preseason 3rd team return man in Tommy Davis who hopes to step up and ignite the special teams. On D the Huskies have lost a good bit of experience but do return 1st team preseason DE Sean Progar who should be a force off the edge. He is pretty much all they have so they will need to pile up some points early and often. Early in the season games vs Army, Kansas and especially Wisconsin will be tough sleding. If they can go 1-2 in those games they will feel pretty good about themselves.

    Offensive Captain:
    JR QB Ryan Radcliff

    Defensive Captain:
    JR DB Jahleel Addae

    2010 Record: 3-9 (2-6)
    Head Coach: Dan Enos
    Offensive Coordinator: Makinpropel
    Defensive Coordinator: Joe Tumpkin
    Offensive Starters Returning: 7
    Defensive Starters Returning: 6

    Preview: Central Michigan hopes to rebound from their 9 win drop-off from 2009 with a solid year upcoming. CMU ranked 17th in passing offense in 2010, but only 108th in rushing. Coach Enos reached out to Coach Makinpropel this past offseason to try to balance the offense and get more points on the board. Coach Makinpropel will look to rely on the rushing attack of Paris Cotton to bring in his new run-heavy offense. It may take a year or two to fully get the players he needs for this offense, but when it does happen this offense will be a top 25 offense, hoping to help take the pressure off of Coach Tumpkin's defense who will look to improve on his 60th overall defense. The Chippewas' defense will look to improve on their ranking of 113th in turnover margin, hoping to force as many as possible, and also stop the running attack, one of their biggest problems of the 2010 season

    Overall, this team is looking to at least go back to a bowl game this season, and possibly get to the MAC championship. With early games against WMU, NIU, and Toledo, they need to win at least 2 out of 3 to even have a chance at getting to the MAC Championship.

    11/19/11 Fresno State
    11/26/11 Tulane
    12/03/11 BYU

    Captains will be the same as the top returners.

    2010 Record: 10-4 (7-1)
    Head Coach: Greg McMackin (4th year)
    Offensive Coordinator: The Parrothead
    Defensive Coordinator: Dave Aranda
    Offensive starters returning: 3
    Defensive starters returning: 6

    Top Returners:

    Offense - Easily the top returning starter is Senior QB Bryant Moniz. Moniz was the NCAA's leading passer in 2010 with 360 ypg.
    Defense - Senior LB Corey Paredes, who averaged just under 11 tackles per game in 2010 and had 4 INT's.
    Special Teams - P Alex Dunnachie, who average 43 yards per punt.

    Outlook: Hawai'i ended 2010 on a down note, getting crushed in their own backyard by Tulsa in the Hawai'i bowl 62-35 to put a damper on an otherwise good season. With all the losses on offense (including 4 of the 5 linemen), the pressure will literally be on Moniz. Should the line hold up, OC The Parrothead will look like a genius out there. If not, he may be looking for a new job before season's end. On defense, 6 returners look to shore things up. With Boise State now out of the WAC picture, Hawai'i has a legitimate shot at a conference title this year. The first big test will be at Washington. If the Warriors can somehow win that game, it should give them plenty of confidence before the big conference opener at Louisiana Tech.

    MLB Bobby Wagner

    2010 Record:
    Coach/DC: Gary Andersen
    Offensive Coordinator: Coach Max

    Offensive Starters Lost/Returning: 2/9
    Defensive Starters Lost/Returning: 5/6

    Top Returners:
    RB Robert Turbin (Ran for 1,296 in '09. Sat out '10 with an injury)
    MLB Bobby Wagner (11.1 Tackles per game last year)

    The Utah State Aggies are coming off of back-to-back 4-8 seasons under Gary Andersen (3rd year from Utah). However, they do return 16 starters this year, including nine on offense. Last year the Aggies ran a spread attack that featured a 48.6-51.4 run-pass split in yardage, and a 3-4 defense that is designed to let Senior All-WAC linebacker Bobby Wagner make plays. Their defense was pretty porous though, giving up 429ypg and 39ppg last season. With the hire of Coach Max as OC, the motto around campus could end up being "the best defense is a good offense". If the D can force a few turnovers, get a few stops here and there, Utah State could be looking at getting over the hump and into a bowl game next season. Coach Max arrives at the same time true Freshman QB Chuckie Keeton, and they are both coming from Texas. Keeton is a 6'2 scrambler from Cypress Creek (Houston) and might end up being USU's QB of the future.
