    i rack my brain and try to think of what team i want to play with in an Offline Dynasty..After going back and forth for awhile i finally tell my oldest daughter to pick a team. I give her the following schools: UL Monroe, Western Kentucky, Memphis, Akron and Toledo...Her pick was TOLEDO!!!! so i started up with them and i'm having a good time so far...I'm using the slider set from CoC but on AA until i sign my 2nd class of players..after that i will bump back up to Heisman..for the first season i have only played the Offensive plays and simmed all Defensive plays..i'm currently in a bye week..i will start updating from this point on

    The Rockets win this one 33-28..This game was really important to the players after losing to Purdue earlier in the year. They wanted to prove that they could play with and beat a team from Big time Conference. The win helps Toledo end the season with a 11-3 record for the year..Not bad at all for a 2* team

    At the end of the season Coach GSU had a tough choice to make..He was offered a 5yr extension on his contract at Toledo and also recieved offers to become the head coach at UCLA and UGA..Coach sat there thinking for awhile and said he loved being part of the Rocket program and that he can see great things happening here in toledo. With that he signed the 5yr extension turning down jobs at bigger schools. Coach had this to say at his news conference "I have enjoyed my first year here. The players brought into my vision as well the players we have coming..This season was just the starting point of where i want to take this program. I'm here to stay not use this job as a stepping stone.

    Make sure you try to keep PA as a pipeline state. Recruiting gets tough if you're stuck with only OH and MI.

    Reporter: Coach how do you feel going into your 2nd season at Toledo?​

    Coach: I feel great! there is no other way to put it. We won the MAC last season and won our bowl game. We start the season ranked 48th in the country. We hope to finish this season once again ranked in the top 25.

    Reporter: Coach your team now is 3* team will that changes any plans on the recuriting trail?

    Coach: We are still lookin for guys who want to be "ROCKETS" its that simple. Only thing the extra star did was open up a couple of eyes on put them on our program. Will still keep our focus on our pipeline states and be on the look out for guys not in our states who send film into to our coaching staff.

    Reporter: Speaking of your coaching staff, why did you hire the guys you did?

    Coach: I want to turn Toledo into a winning program for years to come and what better way to do that then to have coaches who have been winners. Its all about the mind set. If the coaches are winners the players will want to be just like them and be winners. They know what the coaches did as players and they want to get to that level.

    Reporter: Coach why the game against FIU?

    Coach: Well, FIU had a fan(Jam.) who said hey coach why not play my school? So i called down to FIU they had an open date and will agreed to go down and play them.

    Reporter: What are your goals for this season?

    Coach: Well its starts the same every year beat rival Bowling Green! Our main goal is to win the MAC once again and keep building each week until we become a household name. My coaching contract calls for me to beat BGSU, finish in the top 3 in the MAC and beat a 5 or 6 star team. So we put Boise on the schedule for this season.

    Reporter: Thanks for your time coach and good luck this season.

    Coach: Anytime.

    Pregame: Fox Sports Midwest will be showing this game live(Regional Broadcast). Kick off is at Noon on Sat Aug 27. The ESPN Game Day team is picking the Rockets to win this game. Both Teams are C+ Overall, so this should be a good one.​

    Coaches Pregame thoughts: We will focus on stopping the Air Force running attack, but i just want to see our guys people the entire game non stop full speed. We looked good in fall game, now lets see how we look in the opening week.​
