    As part of the TSO experience creating content is a key componant. While I won't demand a lot out of you guys, it will be a requirement to create a preview for your teams 2013 season.

    The previews should just give a briefing of your teams outlook. Maybe give a summary of the expectations, where the teams strengths and weaknesses are(both offense and defense) and include any other info you might want to. Some ideas would be to pick a couple games on your schedule and label them as 'upset alert' 'game of the year' etc...

    It doesn't have to be lengthy just enough to create an identity for you team and let us all get involved in each others teams.

    I'm sure you've all seen them done before in your other leagues on the site, but if you need examples just let me know.... or wait for some of us to post them up.

    *These need to be completed before our wk 1 games.*

    Hawaii Warriors 2013 Team Preview
    Offense
    Coach Westcott has his hand full with a tough choice at the QB position with Sean Schroeder and Utah State transfer Jeremy Higgens. Look for coach Westcott to go with the Ohio State transfer Taylor Graham a shot at the starting job at first but it will be a "wait and see" approach.
    The Hawaii Warriors O-Line was horrible last season. They need junior Jordan Loeffler to stay healthy on the inside to run their pro-style offense effectively. Westcott will need to get production out of this group or it will be another losing season for the Warriors.
    Player to Watch
    The bright side is they do have NFL caliber talent at the WR position with Bubba Poueu-Luna, but will they have enough time to get him the ball or an even better question, will they have a guy that can get him the ball?

    [​IMG]

    Defense

    The Warriors have a bright future ahead of them with frosh Kennedy Tulimaseailli at the tackle position and a strong secondary, especially at the safety position with Hardy-Tuliau and Charles Clay, both seniors as well as Marrell Jackson. With this core group of guys and a strong showing by Dee Maggit and Tony Grimes at the corner this defense as the ability to turn some heads. They will need an inspired football on this side to get the Warriors bowl bound.


    Player to Watch


    LB George Daily-Lyles recording 5 sacks in the spring game. If the Warriors get the production out of the front four they need it will be a from out of nowhere season that only Warrior fans would expect.

    [​IMG]


    Overall


    Look for the Warriors to fight for a bowl birth but the offense has too many questions to really be taken seriously yet. If Coach Westcott can recruit this season the Warriors stand a good chance of contending for a MWC title the following season.

    San Jose State Spartans 2013 Team Preview
    Offense
    Senior quarterback David Fales leads an offense that finished in the top ten in the nation in passing last season. Under new head coach Don VanGiesen look for the Spartans to install a pro-style attack, play a physical style of football and achieve run-pass balance. Fales will not have to lead the offense by himself as the Spartans are deep at wide receiver. Noel Grigsby is the top receiver and the school's all-time leader in catches and yards. Chandler Jones is a deep threat who lead the team with 11 TD catches last year. Jabari Carr is a possession receiver that will spend much of his time in the slot. Junior Tyler Ervin looks to get the start at running back, but he is small and has not shown effectiveness running between the tackles. A senior laden offensive line returns 4 starters, but sophomore LT Wes Schweitzer gets the first crack at protecting Fales backside. "We know David is an NFL caliber QB and we will use his skills to move the ball, but make no mistake about it we will run the football!" Head Coach Don VanGiesen

    Defense

    The Spartans will utilize a 3-4 defense to take advantage of their depth at linebacker. Linebackers Kevin Smith and Vince Buhagiar are fourth-year starters and the top two tacklers from last season. Buhagiar is moving to outside linebacker to create a spot for impressive freshmen Christian Tago. Senior cornerback Bene Benwikere is a ball hawk who had 7 INTs last season. Damon Ogburn Jr. moves from corner and is the projected starter at free safety. Travis Raciti will play one of the 5-technique DE in the 3-4 scheme. He is strong, quick and plays with a high motor. "I love attacking, aggressive-style defenses. We never want to allow a QB to get comfortable in the pocket." Coach VanGiesen

    Overview

    After the first 11-win season in years the expectations are running very high for the Spartan's first season in the Mountain West. Lead by NFL prospect QB David Fales the Spartans are poised to make a run at back to back bowl games and contend for a Mountain West Conference title.

    University of Cincinnati Bearcats
    [​IMG]
    Offense:
    Leading the offense for the upcoming season will be RS Senior Brendon Kay. At 6'4 233 lbs, this guys is a beast and will be relied on heavily in an offense that is solid, but doesn't have much star power....on paper. He will be a good role model for FR Gunner Kiel (former MR Football of Indiana) who isn't far behind Kay's skill set as a QB. If Kay doesn't pan out however, Kiel starting is not out of the question. Leading the backfield will be JR RB Ralph David Abernathy IV (RDAIV) 5'7 161lbs. He's the only other "star" on offesne. He's got good speed, good agility and can catch the ball rather well out of the backfield. Averaged 5.6 yds per touch last year but was only involved in about 10 plays a game. Boy is that going to change! The starter last year has been drafted by the Patriots and it's going to be RDAIV's job this year. There are some decent backups that will give him breathers, and those prospects look to be promising as well. These backs should do rather well as long as the line does their job in this pro-style offense.
    Defense:
    The defense will be highlighted by former Florida State LB Jeff Luc. Coach nellycuz isn't sure if he's going to be sticking with a 4-3 or converting to his more familiar 3-4 defense. He will have to tinker with the defense once they report in less than a week. But the highlight is Jeff. Coming out of highschool two years ago, he was the no. 1 recruit at his position. His speed is tremendous for his 6-1 248 lbs frame, and coach nellycuz can't wait for him to show up to camp. With the plethora of decent LBS with good speed UC has on their roster currently, look for coach nellycuz to give the 3-4 a chance for a few games. The only question mark is the D-Line. They have two ends that transferred from the same JR College that had 24+ sacks last year combined. We just don't know if they are big enough to stop the run in a 3-4. Time will tell.
    The Bearcats outlook is great. A freshman QB waiting in the wings behind a senior leader on offense, you can't ask for anything better than that for the coach. On defense, he thinks he has the LBs to go to a 3-4 defense which he is most familiar with. Look for the Bearcats of Cincinnati to push for another 10 win season and be a contender for the newly aligned AA conference Championship.

    Air Force Falcons
    Offense:
    The offense for Air Force this season is going to be a tricky situation for Coach RRAH to manage. With only 1 QB listed at over 6' on the roster, the Falcons are certainly coming in undersized. In the Option game, height isn't nearly as important as say a Spread attack, but smaller QB's do tend to get injured more. The QB spot is wide open as there is no set starter for this season, most likely we will have to wait till the season begins for Coach to pick his QB. The skill position players are decent, but nobody that will blow you away with athleticism. As for the OL, the left side is definitely the strength here. Look for a lot of weak side plays, as the strong side of the OL is ironically, very weak.

    Defense:
    The defense will also be a big question mark for AF this season. They have great talent in the secondary, but are definitely lacking in the front 7. Coach RRAH will need to devise a good game plan to keep teams from running all over them this season on the ground.

    Air Force, being a military school, can not recruit the same way a traditional school can. They always will be at a disadvantage in this dept. However, with proper coaching look for the Falcons to get back to being competitive this season. If they can play smart football and limit turnovers, the option game can get them some W's.

    Colorado State Rams
    [​IMG]
    Season preview ​

    Colorado State returns 45 letterwinners from its 2012 squad, including
    15 starters—nine on offense, six on defense. Two special teams “starters” also return, with
    kicker Jared Roberts and long snapper Tanner Hedstrom back in 2013. In addition to the 15
    starters returning, the Rams will benefit from the services of five other players who made a
    total or 28 starts between them in 2012.


    Coach Shorter: will have 5 All Mountain West performers :

    K Jared Roberts (Jr.)— Second-team All-MW; second-team Phil Steele All-MW
    • CB Shaq Bell (Sr.)—Honorable mention All-MW
    • LB Shaquil Barrett (Sr.)—Honorable mention All-MW; third-team Phil Steele All-MW
    • C Weston Richburg (Sr.)—Honorable mention All-MW (2011 2nd team); third-team Phil
    Steele All-MW
    • • LB Cory James (So.)—Second-team Phil Steele Freshman All-America; second-team
    Phil Steele All-MW


    Our outlook is to Build off of the 5 game winning streak the team had to Complete the 2012 season it will be hard but with the team we have coming back and the winning attitude anything can happen.


    Returning Starters for the upcoming Season​
    Quarterbacks—Colorado State started three different quarterbacks last year, and returns​
    original starter Garrett Grayson (6 games, 5 starts) and four-game starter Conner Smith​
    Competition also will come from local product Craig Leonard and incoming​

    freshman Nick Stevens (Murrieta, Calif., Vista Murrieta).

    RECEIVERS/TIGHT ENDS—The Rams will have to replace the leadership and

    productivity of wideout Marquise Law (29-387, 2 TDs), but return leading receiver Charles Lovett (35-428, 2 TDs), leading tight end target Kivon Cartwright (26-310, 3TDs),

    2012 preseason all-conference tight end Crockett Gillmore (26-310, 3 TDs)

    wideout Joe Hansley (21-274, 3 TDs)
    RUNNING BACKS—The Rams are loaded with returning talent. The team’s 2011 leading rusher Chris Nwoke (570 yards, 2 TDs in 2012) and 2012 leading rusher Donnell
    Alexander (587 yards, 4 TDs) lead the charge, and are joined by Tommey Morris
    (211), Hansley (128) and 2013 mid-year junior college signee Kapri Bibbs.

    OFFENSIVE LINE—The Rams lose starting left tackle Joe Caprioglio, but return five
    players who made a significant number of starts on the offensive line in 2012: Jared
    Biard (10 starts), Jordan Gragert (11), Brandon Haynes (7), honorable mention All MW



    Defense


    DEFENSIVE LINE—Three starters (Lanston Tanyi, Zach Tiedgen and Alex Tucci) have
    moved on, but returning key reserves include Eli Edwards, Calvin Tonga and Curtis
    Wilson, each of whom played considerable snaps in 2012. This unit also received the
    greatest influx of mid-year junior college talent in December, in Terry Jackson and
    LaRyan King. Also, fellow December signee Martavius Foster is a tight end/defensive
    lineman.


    LINEBACKERS—The Rams welcome back the majority of their starting personnel,
    including returning starters Shaquil Barrett (67 tackles, 3.5 sacks; honorable mention
    All-MW), Cory James (54 tackles, 7.5 sacks) and Aaron Davis (team-leading 84 tackles). Max Morgan started the last four games in place of the injured James Skelton,
    who since has graduated, and returnees Kevin Davis, Nu’uvali Fa’apito and Steven
    Michel saw significant game action in 2012.

    SECONDARY—While the Rams technically lose starter MoMo Thomas to graduation,
    the team was forced to play the final nine game of 2012 without him after he suffered
    a season-ending shoulder injury at San Jose State. The secondary may be the area
    where the Rams feature their greatest collection of young talent. The veteran of the
    group is senior-to-be Shaq Bell, who made 66 tackles and added one sack, one interception, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries to earn honorable mention AllMountain West honors. He is joined by cornerbacks Bernard Blake (3 pass breakups),
    DeAndre Elliott (2 INTs, 1 TD, 7 PBU) and Jasen Oden (1 INT), and safeties Austin
    Gray (5.8 tackles per game) and Trent Matthews (71 tackles, 1 INT). Blake and Gray
    will be juniors in 2013, while Elliott, Oden and Matthews will be sophomores.

    Special Teams:

    CSU loses four-year punter and three-time All-Mountain West selection Pete Kontodiakos, but welcomes back kicker Jared Roberts and long-snapper Tanner Hedstrom.
    Roberts, who earned a scholarship just before the 2012 season opener, turned in an
    outstanding season that saw him earn second-team All-Mountain West in his first season of action. He made 9-of-10 field-goal attempts and 29-of-31 point-after attempts for
    56 points, and twice earned Mountain West special teams player of the week honors.

    Fresno State
    [​IMG]
    Bulldogs
    Offense​
    Any discussions of the 2013 Fresno St. Bulldogs starts and ends with Senior QB Derek Carr, brother of former NFLer David Carr. Younger brother, Derek, is on the same path as David, with many scouts considering him a sure fire draft pick in next years NFL Draft. While the future looks bright for Carr, the expectations of this season rest on his shoulders. If he continues to show the progression he exhibited late last year this offense will do just fine. He has become very comfortable in the Bulldogs spread attack, mixing in both downfield passing with a confusing option attack that utilized a lot of motion. ​
    Carr has a sold, but not spectacular cast around him, starting with his WR's. The team can put 3-wide on the field and pose a few mismatch problems for opposing DB's. Senior Isaiah Burse is the experienced, savy progression receiver, while Sophmore Davante Adams can stretch the field with his speed and size, and Junior Josh Harper is the utility player of the bunch, providing the ability to do it all.​
    The backfield for Fresno State is littered with young guys. Head Coach Damrell hasn't decided yet who will get the bulk of the carries but Sophmore Marteze Waller has the upper hand so far, as well as the biggest upside looking into the future. ​
    Defense​
    The job of the Bulldogs defense will be to create turnovers and keep games manageable so that the offense can take over late in games. They are led by two stars, MLB Patrick Su'a and CB LJ Jones. Both seniors, they are looking to provide leadership for an otherwise young starting 11. The pass rush for Fresno State won't scare anyone initially, but if they can play with a lead, it will provide them with the opportunity to pin their ears back and rack up some QB sacks. ​
    Fresno State has been employing a 3-4 defense for years now, but the new coach isn't quite sure if he's comfortable with that approach going forward. With the strenth of the defense being the LB's though, don't look for any immediate changes.​
    Season outlook:​
    After improving leaps and bounds in 2012 to a 9-4 record, the season ended on a down note with a 44-10 loss in the Hawaii Bowl to SMU. The team is hoping to keep improving on that record and with the return of Derek Carr for his senior season there is no reason to think they will slide back. They have tasted success and now want to make a meal of it. Getting to 10 wins wont be easy, but it is attainable. However, the main goal is to reach the MWC Championship game and win it. From there, any bowl game would just be considered a reward. ​

    The Return of the Pony Express
    SMU has hired Coach Jonathan Applegate to bring SMU back to national relevance. The school board has already approved funds to pay incoming high school recruits whatever they ask to rebuild the program. Coming from the Mike Leach coaching tree - Coach Applegate is going to bring an Air Raid offensive style to Dallas.​
    Offense
    SMU's bright spot this year will be the offense. Coach Applegate's Air Raid will get huge numbers for the Texas Transfer Garrett Gilbert. Teaming up with star WR Derrikk Thompson, Gilbert should be in line for Conference Player of the Year. The Stangs also have a solid RB option in Rishaad Wimbley. Coach Applegate will be installing the pistol along with the Air Raid passing attack to take advantage of Wimbley's running power. ​
    Defense
    Expect to see plenty of scores like 45-42 this year as SMU's defense is a complete disaster. No bright spots to speak of on this side of the ball. Coach Applegate will have to spend much of his recruiting time on defensive players.​

    Coach Chandler takes the helm this year as the head coach of the Cowboys. This will be an interesting year for the coach as much of his philosophy is based off the power run game and this team uses a shotgun look as it's base offense. Instead of changing the offense, he is going use this offense and it's players to their strengths. He is going to incorporate variety of runs and passes to keep opposing defenses on their heels. This year is going to be an exciting one for the Cowboys and their new Head Coach.​
    Offense:​
    The offense will be led by Junior QB Brett Smith. During off season scrimmages, Coach Chandler has grown more confident he is the guy to get the job done. He has become a nice duel threat option as the signal caller. Senior Robert Herron will be the impact player at the receiver position. He is not the fastest on the team, but he has an amazing knack for getting open and making the difficult catches. In case defense think they will concentrate on stopping Herron, Junior Dominic Rufran is more than capable to pick up the slack. Defenses might want to think twice about pressing him. He sheds opposing CBs like a hot knife through butter. The running attack will be handled by Senior Brandon Miller and Sophomore Shaun Wick. Both of these guys are capable of the big run, as they both have great speed and can catch the ball as well. Linebackers beware.​
    Defense:​
    Coach Chandler expects his defense to be the top of Conference since they will be running a familiar 4-3 scheme. Junior corner Blair Burns will be the impact player offenses will want to stay away from. The safeties are a little bit of a question mark, but they are more than capable of getting the job done. The front seven will be key for this defense to thrive. The head coach was pleased with emergence of Sophomore defensive end Eddie Yarbrough. He can provide a nice rush as well play the run. The linebacker group is solid with no real deficiencies. Coach Chandler feels this defense has the chance to turn some heads.​
    This is a look at the Cowboy's schedule:​

    #11 LOUISVILLE CARDINALS

    Season Preview:

    Coach Walton takes over this talented bunch of players at Louisville with expectations soaring high for this team after 11-2 record in 2012 and an impressive showing over Florida in the Sugar Bowl. Anything short of major bowl game for this team will be considered a failure. Louisville is a very young team that is well balanced on both sides of the ball. The two biggest areas of concern for this team is the o-line and the lack of height in the secondary. If those two units can play well throughout the entire season Louisville should have no problem returning to a major bowl game this year


    Offense:

    This team is lead by Junior standout QB Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater is a qb that can throw and run so he can adjust to any defense that lines up against him on the field. The cardinals will lean on a two rb system with the bruiser Brown and the speed back in Perry if these two can stay healthy all year the offense should be able to move the chains at will against any defense. The wr group will be lead by Parker and Rogers both have the big playmaking ability that should open up the middle of the field for freshman TE Pike. The o-line is the weakness on this team so if Louisville struggles on offense you can bet that its b/c of this group.

    Defense:

    Louisville has a decent d-line and lb core lead by Senior MLB Preston Brown. The cbs can play the ball however they are on the short side when it comes to height so we will have to see if that is a problem against some of the bigger receivers. The team has two safeties that can bring the wood and stop the run so the question will be can they stop the passing game.

    USF Bulls
    Head Coach: David Reynolds(1st year)​
    2012 record: 3-9(1-6)​
    The USF football program has only been around since 1997. They joined the FBS ranks since 2001. In 11 years they have already been to six bowl games(4-2). Most schools would be very excited about that type of success. With that being said, this is a program that has always seemed to be expected to achieve more. Yet, they have not ever been able to reach those goals set by experts across the nation. After two straight years of below .500 records and only winning three games last year. This program decided it was time for change.​
    The school decided to hire David Reynolds as the next head coach for the University of South Florida Bulls! They feel like, he is the perfect coach to get our program back to bowling, double digit wins, conference championships & making this program a main stay among the top programs across the college football landscape!​
    On offense you want to keep an eye on the effectiveness of the run game(Marcus Shaw). As this is the element in which this team is built on around on this side of the ball. When it comes to defense they look to get a lot pressure from Aaron Lynch(transfer ND) and that should free up the rest of the group to make plays.​
    This team last year finished at -19 in TOs! That is tied for last in all of FBS ranks in 2012. For a team that wants to get back to going to bowl games and more they are going to have to drastically improve this number. With coach Reynolds at the helm I like them to improve from last year.​

    UCF TEAM PREVIEW
    OFFENSE
    QB Blake Bortles is the heart and soul of this team, he runs the show with good poise and a capable arm. The Knights success lies strickly on his shoulders. Bortles has 2 experiences wideouts to throw to in Ranell Hill and JJ Worton, both have decent speed and great hands. The ground game will be in the hands of Miami transfer Storm Johnson. Once a top 10 national recruit out of High School, Johnson is ready to live up to that billing. One other offensive weapon to watch for is big Tight end Justin Tukes. He had a great spring and developed a nice bond with Bortles then.
    Overall the offense is this teams strong side, but the Knights are still a young group that is developing. If the young O-Line can play well exspect the Knights to put big points on the board every game.
    DEFENSE
    This is a very young group as well that doesnt have much size up front. What they lack in size they make up for in speed. The secondary is the strongest it has been in years past led by Safety Clayton Geathers. Right now the Knights are playing a 4-3, but might want to switch to a 3-4 to get their young quick LBs on the field.
    CONCLUSION
    Coach Gold is slowing going to introduce his spread offense concepts to the team but doesnt want to hurt Bortles ball throwing at all either. The Knights will use a multiple formation playbook. The defense has to find out what works best for them, they most def will use blitz packages to utilize their speed. The Knights are a super young group who only have 10 schollys for next year. They hope to recruit heavy on D-lineman and also need a fullback and 0-line men who can make a impact.

    The Rutgers Athletic Director announced the hiring of Coach Varno, If you were wondering who Coach Varno is he has Coached under Bill Belichick as a Offense Coordinator for the last few years as they have won multiple division titles, However this will be Coach Varno's biggest test... Being the Head Coach of Rutgers.
    Offense:
    Rutgers will run a pro style offense, with Jr. QB Gary Nova getting the start, Jr. HB Savon Huggins looks 2 carry the load this season with Soph. Paul James coming in for him when he rest. Jr. WR Brandon Coleman and Sr. Quron Pratt Look to be the top targets as #1 and #2 Receivers.
    Overall the Scarlet knights want to put pressure on opposing defenses early.
    Defense:
    The Rutgers will run a 4-3 defense, They mostly have a all senior D-line who looks to bring pressure early and often. The Rutgers Secondary looks to use its speed to beat offenses, Rutgers will look to get momentum early in their games with the speedy defense.
    Season Outlook:
    Rutgers are looking to go 7-5 and become Bowl Eligible.
