NationStates College Football - Season 28


Breathe deep and take it all in as the tubas' rumbles reverberate through all the iconic campus stadia again. Each one, packed with generations of alumni returning to partake in the traditions of their beloved alma mater, is ready for that combustion of kinky action. The poppin' aromas of molly-popcorn and beer sift out through the bleachers full of marijuana smoke. The bright lights shine down on armoured teams battling under the night sky, school bragging rights and a gruelling summer of work on the line. Ah, yes. It's college football season. Glory, Drama, Pride.

The twenty-eighth edition of NationStates College Football is upon us. In this thread, you will post your team's roster and all in-character roleplays. These can be game reports, character dialogues, or really anything you like. Any out-of-character questions should be directed towards the discussion thread or telegram.

Post-NSCF 27 Ranks

NSCF XXVII Recruiting Spreadsheet


With 48 entrants, there will be six conferences. Each conference will have eight teams that are split into two divisions of four teams each.

In this ten matchday fixture there will be both a double round robin within division (six games), and a single round robin against opposing division (four games). How it will work out, for scorination purposes, is that a full round robin (7 matchdays), will be played out first, before last three matchdays feature the single round robin. At the conclusion of the conference stage, the top team in each division will face off in the conference championship game, which will decide the conference title.

Sixteen teams will make the Playoffs: the six conference champions, the six highest-ranked schools ranked by OSPI or a tentative replacement on line and, finally, four wildcards selected by the NSCF Committee. These Sixteen teams will then be seeded in the bracket purely by OSPI or a tentative replacement. Higher seeds will have a home advantage until the final, which will take place at a neutral venue. Any nation can put together a bid to host the NSCF Championship (IC only) before the start of Non-Conference week when it will then be voted on by the NSCF Committee.

New and returning players alike are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the NSCF procedure here. The regular season will be double round-robin, for a total of 10 games. Games will be scorinated three times a week: on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Scores will be posted in this thread at a time determined by each conference's designated scorer. After the ten-game conference schedule, there will be a "Non-Conference Week", with each team playing up to three games against opposition from other conferences. These games will not count toward conference championships, but WILL affect playoff seedings. All Non-Conference games must be arranged by the teams playing them (you can use the discussion thread for this). Once confirmed by BOTH parties, match-ups should be telegrammed to NSCF to be added to the schedule.

In addition to the playoffs, there also a few consolation bowl games for teams that do not reach the postseason. If your nation proposes a bowl game to host, you are responsible for inviting the teams yourself if it does not have automatic parameters for selection. The Pioneer Bowl is a traditional game for the two best newcomer teams not in the playoffs. After that, NSCF will not recognize any bowl game involving a team with an OSPI below 0.450, or its proposed alternative.

Dietrich Stadium, constructed in 2012, features a capacity of 94,750 attendees, and is one of the toughest places to visit in college football. One of the largest stadiums in the country.

Team Philosophy

Offensive Style: Richardson tends to direct their plays from the I formation, only adopting a shotgun look if they have a lethal passer along with an obvious need to pass. Generally run 11, 12, or 13 personnel (1 running back, 1-3 tight ends). The run game is done with a power concept (i.e lots of double teams), taking advantage of highly recruited, big offensive linemen. Richardson's general philosophy is to pound the rock down the opposing team's throat and eat away at the clock to make things easier on their defense - but they're modern enough to know how to maximize that style with the play action attack.

Defensive Style: Richardson's base defense is a 3-3-5 nickel look, generally running some sort of man coverage on the outside with safeties providing deep help. The team is in the third year of its defensive system after this unit led them to a 12-1 mark in Harrowitz’s first season before a stunning season-long performance a la Felswyr State’s NSCF 22 campaign ended in a championship. Expect three down linemen, a standup edge linebacker, and five defensive backs in most situations to offer more speed and versatility to a unit that was traditionally a "line up and play" defense under Richard Steinheil. Strong side OLB will typically line up as a pass rusher and may rush or drop back into coverage depending on the snap, weak side OLB is typically off the ball.

These are just here if you feel like using them! So it's a simple system
Runs: "SchoolName" or "Mascot" - the schoolname would be a run to the left, mascot to the right.
So for example - "Richardson" would be a run to the left, "Governors" would be to the right

Passes: protections and route concepts need to be called.
60- standard pass pro without TE, sliding left
61- standard pass pro without TE, sliding right
50- TE stays in, sliding left
51- TE stays in, sliding right
40- TE chips then runs route, sliding left
41- TE chips then runs route, sliding right

Receivers: Not all of these receivers will always be on the field. In the rare case of going 5-wide, these labels are still used.
X- WR1
Z- WR2
Y- WR3 or TE1 - if WR3 is on the field, they get this designation
H- TE1 or TE2 - if WR3 is on the field, TE1 is H. If no WR3, TE1 is Y, TE2 is H
T- HB1


Usually the team will come onto the field with two plays called. The first play is the call, the second is their check. If the playcall is "Ranger Check Mickey," then Ranger is run unless a "check check" is called, which would mean Mickey is being run. If you want to do anything with this, feel free to make up playcalls.

Key Losses:
K Shirley Woo/ P Hillary Mercator: Weird to say this, but Mercator and Woo were the best RU kicker and punter ever by a mile. Having Ranorians in those spots is a huge step back and frankly a failure by this coaching staff to take a proactive measure in recruiting.

DE Kasper Ulvestad: When you lose reigning NSCF DPOY Gideon Kearse off one edge it's a bad offseason. When you lose MoP Kasper Ulvestad off the other the next year, that's just tough. Ulvestad was the weapon of this defense last season, racking up more than 27 sacks over the last two seasons, not including a dominant 4 sack performance in the NSCF 27 championship game.

Player bios:
WR Constantina Perrier: Perrier's a big bodied freelancer at wideout who can generate a ton of RAC. She's excellent at finding holes in coverage and has been given plenty of opportunities in this offense to make reads and adjust routes at her leisure. Will be a massive crutch along with Dustin van Halfennsen for freshman QB Isaiah Hunter. With her running mate Angela Sauber leaving for the GFLB draft, most of the passing game will run through her.

CB Takeuchi Ichiko: This is the guy to watch out for. Ichiko stepped right into a barren cornerback room prior to NSCF 25 as a freshman and put on an impressive display given that situation - technical, patient, and more shutdown than gambler. After a DPOY runner-up season, he's now comfortably slotted into the #1 corner role and the team has seen him blossom into maybe the best corner in the NSCF. Behind him, countryman Packard Goss is ready to make a name for himself after earning the CB2 slot over veteran Karl Fortis, who started last season. Fortis is in a tough spot, with another talented pair of freshman in Rodney Knight and Banijan Munanire Tembo actively fighting with him for the CB3 role.

SS: Totte Lindberg: A fortunate signing from Valanora, Lindberg was key in a new scheme as a box linebacker slotted to start as a freshman. Lindberg was graded as the top recruit in Valanora and the #2 DB recruit among all NSCF nations prior to NSCF 26, and had an instant impact for a team that went 12-1. Expect him to be one of the core players for a maturing defense.

DT Malchiel Lukwiya: Going into year 3, Lukwiya is the guy to watch on this d-line. The Banijan Beast is the last man standing of three super talented players after Kearse and Ulvestad left.

QB Isaiah Hunter: A surprising signing given Richardson's low-volume passing attack, but Hunter shocked the team with how casually he won the starting quarterback job his freshman season, showing up with a firm grasp of the playbook he'd been given to study and more arm talent than anyone else on this roster. Soft-spoken and bookish, he made strides as a leader during an incredible campaign that ended with him barreling to Rylan Rodgers Jr to send him in for a game winning touchdown - that play, and a championship win, has won him this team's trust.

Rylan Rodgers Jr: After being a spot-starter for most of NSCF 27, Rylan Rodgers Jr won the starting job the second the senior in front of him went down, notching game winning touchdowns against Loyola-Istria in the Rebel's Cannon Bowl and Staramara Tech in NSCF Championship along with a monster performance to lift this team past Cold Hill in the semifinal on the one day their defense couldn't slow down the bad guys. He's projected to be the centerpiece of this offense, and despite his elite size and tough running may be the fastest player on this team. Behind him is 6'7" Benjamin Merik, a monster freshman who can provide insane size and power if necessary, they'll make a nasty 1-2 punch.

Home Stadium:
The Tundra, often snow covered, in Cold Hill was constructed in 1999, and can hold up to 85,000 people.

Team Philosophy:

At its core, the team's game plan is to rack up points and then make opposing quarterbacks uncomfortable when they try to catch up.

Offensive Style: Cold Hill is a pass-first, air raid, quarterback centric team offensively. Generally run the offense out of the shotgun in 10 or 11 personnel. (1 running back, no tight ends, or 1 running back, 1 tight end). As long as it's working, they see no reason to slow down scoring and give other teams a chance to get back into the game. Power style run game, tight ends and backs are usually plus pass protectors if they're starting. Expect a lot of chipping and double teams in pass protection. With a proven star in Benoit Youngblood under center, this looks to be the most aggressive passing attack in the NSCF.

Defensive Style: Base 3-4 Defense. In essence, make a bunch of plays and cause enough disruption to stop the offense. Outside linebackers serve primarily as edge rushers with very rare drop backs into coverage, while big defensive linemen clog up the interior. Heavy emphasis on pass rush. Scheme features a lot of blitzing, particularly from cornerbacks, and relies on linebackers to soak up tackles while the front men key on the passer. In the run game, expect a contain and bounce inside approach, to force runners straight into the linebacking core. Tendency to give up a lot of big plays but make plenty themselves.

Key Losses:
Proko: Probably the best defensive player this school's had since Angelo Gordon, the half-Drawkian superstar was the only reason this team knew how to play defense last season after losing the rest of what had been an incredibly talented secondary. A lot of players are going to have to step up to make up for his absence both in run support and coverage.

Nikolas Isaksen: The Vanorian was a longtime top receiving threat despite being on a team that’s placed a heavy emphasis on loading up their roster with elite pass catchers in recent years. A jump hall specialist, Isaksen suffered through the Robin Sterling and Aurel Strathos campaigns before finally getting some help from Benoit Youngblood. He was a first round pick and OROY in the RFL, but with the level of talent in this receiving room, the Buffalo offense should keep going without a hitch.

Alexander Østby: Another highly-recruited Vanorian, Ostby was a dual threat who offered an elite check down option or could be used as another pass-catching weapon, but also added a tire rushing threat for a team that doesn’t run the ball often at all. His talented forced the ball into his hands despite the scheme and Østby will go down as one of the best Buffalo runners to ever play.

Player bios:
Receiving Corps: This group is headlined by Kasozi Batte out of Banija. The phenom showed remarkable chemistry with Benoit Youngblood in their shared freshman season and the two promise to build on that promise going forward. Darin Sundström is an elite #2 , a Vanorian of this team who could easily be a top dog in most WR rooms. And of course, Enox Silverman - like Batte a year ago, the uber-productive high schooler showcases freakish size and will prove to be a nightmare to defend. But regardless, it's Kasozi Batte who's been turning heads.

ILB Derek Pierce: The former 4th ranked recruit in Ranoria, Pierce is an impact player. He's a run stopping beast and effective as a blitzer. The team captain is one of few above-average starters on this defense.

Benoit Youngblood: The end-all-be-all for this team's season. Youngblood is the most talented quarterback to enter this locker room since Rhine, and an argument could be made he has what it takes to surpass even Diamond Rhine's lofty heights. The sophomore has all the tools - both physically and in the team that's been built around him. If you want the best quarterback in college football, well, look no further. Youngblood managed to put up 42 points in a valiant effort against an eventual champion Richardson team that fielded one of the best defenses in NSCF history in last year's semifinals.

But hey, behind him, that guy named Viktor Rowles? He’s been absolutely dicing up Cold Hill’s first teamers - if Youngblood goes down, this team has another absolute stud ready to take the reigns behind him.

C Dhairya Taylor: #3 recruit out of South Newlandia, Taylor has the size and will to excell in Cold Hill's system. An excellent pass blocker by nature, expect Taylor to earn a few snaps late in games, although physical maturity will limit him from starting this season barring injuries. Taylor is one of the more promising OL prospects the program has brought in since Vince Vermillion, a long-time national team starter.

CB Nicholas Hussain: #7 recruit out of South Newlandia, Hussain's role will be limited, but this kid's too talented to keep off the field. This coaching staff is working to improve his ball skills, got that down pat, there’s not reason he can’t be a top-level corner. For now, he’ll rely on his physical talent, be that size or speed, to get the job done.

Felswyr State University Firehawks
Stadium: Firehawks' Roost (Cap. 38,000), Felswyr, Mountain District, Chromatika
Offensive Base Formation: 5 OL, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 HB, 1 QB
Defensive Base Formation: 3 DL, 4 LB, 1 SS, 1 FS, 2 CB

Head Coach: Misha Florentine, 47
Born and raised in Felswyr, Forentine has been one of the biggest proponents of Gridiron Football in Chromatika for years. He was a successful businessperson under the Chromatik Party, but dissolved his state-run factory during the Rainbow Revolution, using the funds to create Chromatika's first Gridiron Football academy. A charismatic visionary, Florentine is someone who likes to delegate the actual football duties (he was never a player but loves the game) while being the front office manager. The fact that he has landed Felswyr State University a spot in the NSCF is a huge victory to both him and to Chromatik Gridiron Football as a whole. With Felswyr State's success (4 Semifinals appearances, 4 Championship appearances, 2 Championshisp), his efforts have made him the hero of all gridiron fans in Chromatika. This will be his last year, as he has been selected to be the next Head Coach of the Chromatika Iron Legion. The Firehawks will be keen to send him off on a high note.

Offensive Coordinator: Naia Curentino, 40
Who is Naia Curentino? She played football semiprofessionally in the Regional Leagues for a few years before calling her career quits and going all in on Florentine's plan. An avid fan of the NSCF (her favorite team until Felswyr State entered the competition was University of Loyola-Istria, she's revealed in a few interviews), she's the mad scientist of the Coaching Staff. She's very animated, very forward, and very driven. Someone that the team needs if they're going to make a name for themselves. In the first three years, Curentino has proven that her system isn't just a flash in the pan with all the success, especially after Gwenderyn. Now, with the team being more offensively minded, she will be called on to be the mastermind behind scoring drives once again. Curentino is the heir apparent to the Head Coaching position once Florentine leaves.

Defensive Coordinator: Isidora Noles, 46
With Kasen Harrowitz leaving for Richardson University, Isidora Noles stepped in as Defensive Coordinator, promoted from her Secondary Coach position. She's been highly instrumental in how the team's come together defensively. She'll be using a 3-4-4 instead of the 3-3-5, which will mean that the team will be a bit more stout through the middle. As a disciplinarian and shrewd tactician who knows her personnel by heart, the Firehawks haven't missed a beat, leading the team to a surprise title. She is the disciplinarian of the bunch, but her tough love style works with the players.

Special Teams Coordinator: Vera James, 35
A savant of trick plays and taking risks, James is the youngest member of the staff by far. She views every instance of special teams impacting the match as an opportunity to hit it big, and will always look for players who can do more than they are supposed to. A tricky, catty individual, she's willing to do almost anything to win. With McAllister and Katt gone, there's new players on the positions - and the possibility for more.

Head Physio: Marius Benne, 41
The younger brother of Zoe "Z" Benne, the Chromatik National Football Team's physio, Marius is the more serious of the two, all business all the time. He's pretty good at his job.

QB Kadesh Odika
Taking over during the out of conference slate, Odika came through in the clutch and was a key reason why the Firehawks won their second title in his Freshman season. His Sophomore campaign ended in the Quarterfinals in an upset loss. Now, he's an upper classmen - and the team is still built fully around him. Odika is the key to having this team succeed and reach their fullest potential.

WR Essa Kayode, WR Vince Cartier, WR Nero Ramsey
Yes, So Kwang-Sun and Kim Bo-Mi are the seniors among the Wide Receivers. However, Kayode has the repertoire of having practiced plenty with Odika in the offseason, Cartier is the speedster, and Ramsey, the new kid on the block, has explosive tendencies. With So and Kim helping them acclimatize to the big stage, they should be more than ready to be the weapons that Odika uses to score.

HB Sydney Thomas
The first true Running Back to be listed, Thomas will feature heavily on the new Firehawks offense that will try to use the size up front as well as play-action for big plays down the stretch. He doesn't need Vasilievna to block for him, which is a plus; his versatility will be very important.

TE Ulrich Jefferson
Since the graduation of Niles Gwivern, Ulrich Jefferson is the best receiving tight end that the country has had. He'll grow into the role, but he is a good security blanket.

OG Kassa Essayas
With Julian Watt gone, it's Essayas and Herbert, the Guards, that will lead the offensive line. It is still an Offensive Line with four out of five starters being Seniors - which is perfect to stand in front of Odika and let the Quarterback cook.
Offensive Philosophy

With an offensive line that has had many years to play with each other, the Firehawks will let Odika do things as he sees fit. Having a back like Thomas in the backfield will help, and then he has a wealth of weapons to throw the ball to. Expect big plays, risks, and the understanding that sometimes, they will make mistakes - which is fine as long as enough positive plays come out in spite the mistakes.

#41 Dwight Hellstrom 20 So R 6 ft 10 in Myana Tall, Jumping Reach, Instinctive
DE Aubin Rouzet and Sizo Ashenafi
It's Aubin Rouzet and Sizo Ashenafi starting. Rouzet is someone that has the combination of ability to find the backfield, ability to tackle anyone that gets in his way, and the reach to catch those balls that other Defensive Ends would not be able to. Ashenafi, on the other hand, is a tough-as-nails gamechanger who comes through in the clutch. They are Seniors now, and with this being their last dance, they're ready to take over games.

OLB Rolan Monroe
The leader of the linebacking corps, Monroe is a clutch player that can take over late in games.

MLB Reile Jordan
Filling Park Mi-Hyeon's shoes is almost as impossible as filling Sarai's, but Jordan - with her smarts and her quickness - has done a decent job.

SS Saya Okayato
For the first time in a while, a Chromatik has taken over this position. She can be injured quite easily, but the fact that there is no hole in their game means that she should slot in very well.

CB Lisa Bonsoon
Arguably one of the biggest hyped defensive recruits in school history, Bonsoon enters the collegiate ranks having returned three picks for touchdowns in her last high school game. She's rangy, aggressive, and absolutely plays on pure instinct. Can her skills translate to the collegiate level? FSU is banking on it.

CB Alani Sörens
The Newlandian corner has high expectations due to his speed and ability to read the field.
Defensive Philosophy

Under Noles, the Firehawks have switched to a more traditional 3-4-4, and utilizes a coverage middle linebacker and a blitzing one on most situations. There is definitely youth all over the field, but they'll try to be aggressive, cause turnovers, and hope that they recover on the back end if that fails.

P Pyra Anita-Drosovnai

Special Teams Philosophy

A kicker should never miss. Play for field position. Solid fundamentals. McAllister will always be missed.

Staramara Tech University Lava
Stadium: Johnston Memorial Stadium, Staramara, Urrhed Island (Cap. 14,500)

Head Coach: Laverna Getz (57)
Offensive Coordinator: Teisha Wagoner (53)
Defensive Coordinator: Candy Vogel (53)
Special Teams Coordinator: Adelle Bernard (46)

Quarterbacks - 3
#18 QB Haruno Masakazu - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Felswyr, Mountain District - OFFENSIVE CAPTAIN
#13 QB Liana Anderson - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 4" - Hometown: Chromia, Capital District
#07 QB Amerique Qarinne - Jr (21) - Height: 6’ 1” - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island

Liana Anderson is a hybrid passer who can throw and run with equal efficiency, while Hakuno Masakazu is an interesting fit as he's more of a pocket quarterback with an accurate arm. Masakazu has won the starting job after last season, and with the team getting some better receivers, there may be some more deep play action in the future for the Lava. Who is Qarinne? A bit more of a running Quarterback that can take over in short yardage situations where size may matter more.

Running Backs - 4
#27 RB Gabriele Ziegler - Sr (21) - Height: 5' 9" - Hometown: Mooreville, Ranoria
#20 RB Isaga Duhaga - So (19) - Height: 5' 10" - Hometown: , Banija

#34 RB Leandra Hopkins - So (20) - Height: 6' 3" - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island
#26 RB Cyrus Ebincott - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 3", Hometown: Inon, Myana Island

Gabriele has done well as a receiving back, and the Lava bring in Duhaga to be the more short-yardage running back to get the tough yards in between the tackles. Hopkins can be a good option on passing downs as a blocker, while Ebincott is the heir-apparent to take over Ziegler's role, being someone who can both run between the tackles and run the routes.

Fullbacks - 2
#37 FB Jameson Akae - Jr (21) - Height: 6’ 3” - Hometown: Staramara, Urrhed Island
#61 FB Angie Wheeler - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 5" - Hometown: Eyrods, Myana Island

Jameson Akae takes over at fullback, being more of a blocker than a receiver. Wheeler can be subbed in on passing downs.

Wide Receivers - 4
#83 WR Jacoby Grinner - Jr (21) - Height: 6’ 4" - Hometown: Chromia, Capital District
#82 WR Edison Dotwiler - So (20) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Chromia, Capital District
#19 WR Eduard Wallard - So (20) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Vitoron, Capital District
#84 WR Kuma Sandt - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 2"- Hometown: Eyrods, Myana Island

Grinner can tear up the field and Dotwiler and Wallard can both catch passes in the open. When the Lava need to make comebacks, they now have a slew of players that can really catch the ball. Add in Sandt, a precise route runner, and the Lava could go four wide if they really need to. Imagine this team having that kind of flexibility.

Tight Ends - 3
#89 TE Darin Faulkner - Jr (21) - Height: 6’ 1” - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island
#88 TE Osman Pyatt - So (20) - Height: 6' 10" - Hometown: Myana, Myana Island

#80 TE Shane Myst - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 3" - Hometown: Sanar, Rainbow District

In order for the Lava to do well, their Tight Ends will have to do well. Darin Faulkner is good in rush blocking and not much else, while Pyatt can help with the passing downs. Myst is a work in progress, but has great hops.

Offensive Tackles - 4
#73 OT Ikuru Bayongo - So (19) - Height: 6' 4" - Hometown: Kihanga, Banija
#79 OT Pietr Sandoff - So (20) - Height: 6' 11" - Hometown: Hanai, Capital District

#62 OT Riekr Mundt - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 8" - Hometown: Chromia, Capital District
#68 OT Cando Rust - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 3" - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island

Bayongo is the jack of all trades from Banija, while Pietr Sandoff is a great passing blocker. Riekr Mundt is a bulldozer of a man who prefers to run-block, and Cando Rust is a well-balanced player. They remain the biggest question for the Lava's offense given that it's all underclassmen.

Offensive Guards - 4
#71 OG Karlos Dwyer - Jr (21) - Height: 6’ 1” - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island
#78 OG Arley Barrier - Jr (21) - Height: 6’ 7” - Hometown: Staramara, Urrhed Island

#75 OG Perry Rend - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 5" - Hometown: Felswyr, Mountain District
#76 OG Ryan Iskendor - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 7" - Hometown: Lhor, Coastal District

Another year, another pair of starting guards gone. Karlos Dwyer is very quick for a Guard - and that will be needed; Arley Barrier is a mauler. With Perry Rend and Ryan Iskendor being more of depth options, Dwyer and Barrier will have to make sure that they can stay healthy.

Centers - 3
#70 C Si-U Park - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 7" - Hometown: Sanar, Rainbow District
#62 C Ezekiel Dungste - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 3" - Hometown: Chromia, Capital District
#65 C Merik Jungston - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Alnio, Capital District

Park Si-U is a cerebral player who can call out protection schemes and assigning packages than playing the game himself. He's not the best at running situations, and will have to be inducted in the way of STU's running game. Ezekiel Dungste and Merik Jungston have one season to prove themselves to be a worthy replacement once Park graduates - Dungste being more of a quick option while Jungston is bigger.

Philosophy: The Lava run a 4-3, Cover 2, with an emphasis on stopping the run and pressuring the Quarterback. They aren't the best at stopping the pass, but in an ideal game, they'll control time of possession and get at the Quarterback enough times that it limits the opposition.

Defensive Ends - 4
#61 DE Paul Eberron - Jr (21) - Height: 6’ 4” - Hometown: Staramara, Urrhed Island
#63 DE Lee Bo-Mi - So (20) - Height: 6' 8" - Hometown: Sanar, Rainbow District

#66 DE Paul Everson - So (20) - Height: 6' 7" - Hometown: Felswyr, Mountain District
#60 DE Miyata Izanagi - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 6" - Hometown: Pelar, Rainbow District

Every one of these players are fast blitzers with a nose for the football; Eberron has the most pure speed, Lee is the relentless one, and Everson shines in clutch situations. Add in Ezanagi, someone who loves shedding blocks, and replacing two stalwart seniors doesn't seem that impossible of a task.

Defensive Tackles - 3
#50 DT Jaire Alford - Jr (21) - Height: 6’ 5” - Hometown: Dietrich, Ranoria
#57 DT William Michaels - Sr (22) - Height: 5' 11" - Hometown: Staramara, Urrhed Island

#59 DT Tano Yuu - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 8" - Hometown: Knetyohai, Rainbow District

Alford is a step-in-the-room and make the team better kind of guy. He's very strong and remarkably fast for his size, but his gap movement, discipline, and swim move in the pass and run game are what make him stand out. William Michaels is very fast for a big man.

Outside Linebackers - 4
#48 OLB Masresha Meba - Sr (21) - Height: 6' 1" - Hometown: Karonma, Moravica Region, Banija
#53 OLB Gruzdev Kvetoslav Vadimovich - Sr (22) - 6' 1" - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed District

#49 OLB Frieda Seyfried - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 8" - Hometown: Ming, Mountain District
#42 OLB Sina Hönigsmann - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 3" - Hometown: Z'ai'ai, Mountani District

Msresha Meba is thriving, and can be described to be rangy, smartest dude on the field, and fundamentally sound. Gruzdev Vadimovich is a cover guy. Behind them are Frieda Seyfried, a promising prospect with both size and reach, and Sina Hönigsmann, who can outrun almost anyone on this defense. This is a very young core that will need to develop.

Middle Linebackers - 3
#51 MLB Lucius Agot - Jr (21) - Height: 6’ 3: - Hometown: Istria, Wakiso District, Banija - DEFENSIVE CAPTAIN
#41 MLB Irina Jones - Fr (18) - Height: 6' 6" - Hometown: Pelar, Rainbow District
#47 MLB Kevin Weathers - So (20) - Height: 6' 10" - Hometown: Eyrods, Myana Island

Agot is an absolute tank of a man, as the sizeable middle linebacker is one of the toughest people to block. He is known as an elite tackler, and somebody who can shed all sorts of blocks. He plugs running holes, and while he doesn't quite have the speed to stick with running backs in the zone, his strong play recognition skills allow him to stay at the center of a zone defense. But he's got the fundamentals of the game all together. and he's got the size to stick with tight ends, so he's expected to be a force in the middle for years to come. Irina Jones has high stamina, a brutal efficiency in generating first contact, and the ability to put fear into her opposition. Her major drawback is that sometimes, she overcommits, leading to looking silly. When asked , she's said that it's just a necessary evil, as it's worth it to generate the big plays when she does. A great fit for a defense that has enough good players to pick up the slack when she inevitably tries to do too much. Kevin Weathers is a depth option.

Safeties - 4
#31 FS/SS Do-Hyuk Kim - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 2" - Hometown: Eyrods, Myana Island
#34 SS Su-Bin Kim - Jr (21) - Height: 6’ 4” - Hometown: Sanar, Rainbow Island

#28 FS Harold Hynes - So (20) - Height: 6' 3" - Hometown: Staramara, Urrhed Island
#39 SS Rayisa Leonidivna Andrushchenko - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 8" - Hometown: Wirr Tsi, Capital District

Do-Hyuk Kim loves to play through contact, Harold Hynes is a ball hawk, while Kim Su-Bin is the risk taker. Safeties aren't expected to do much in this defense but assist in plays. Andrushchenko is a bit more of a run stuffer.

Cornerbacks - 5
#21 CB Anira Hoss - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 10" - Hometown: Myana, Myana Island
#43 CB Ingrid Gustaffston - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 11" - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island

#25 CB Lyla Pale - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 9" - Hometown: Pria, Coastal District
#29 CB Andrew Gilliam - Jr (21) - Height: 6’ 3” - Hometown: Staramara, Urrhed Island
#27 CB Józefina Denko - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 3" - Hometown: Tihon, Urrhed Island

Mastya Vorpen, the star, is gone. Anira Hoss can bring the heat, while Gustaffston is more of a pure coverage corner. Lava Cornerbacks are expected to deal with situations on their own as the safeties are often helping the linebackers with the run. Expect Lyla Pale to do well.

Philosophy: STU special teams is all about field position and not much about scoring. This team likes to go for it on fourth and short, so they're fine playing second fiddle.

Kickers - 2
#05 K James Dior - Sr (22) - Height: 6' 3" - Hometown: Myana, Myana Island - SPECIAL TEAMS CAPTAIN
#09 K Marie-Madeleine Guilloux - Fr (19) - Height: 6' 8" - Hometown: Urrheddiao, Urrhed Island

James Dior is a serviceable kicker who's reliable under 40 but not very good beyond that.

Punters - 1
#15 P Nathanaël De la Croix - Fr (19) - Height: 5' 11" - Hometown: Sanar, Rainbow District

De la Croix is someone who can make the punt to change the entire game.

Starters are underlined. Listed in the order of the depth chart.
Players currently redshirting are italicized.
All players are Banijan unless their nationality is otherwise specified.
Offensive and defensive strategies for the team listed under the coaching staff.


Felix Ström(Valanora). #3, Senior. Captain. Third year starter.
Levi Ayange. #10, Junior. 6'5, 233 pounds.
Bango Sonko. #4, Sophomore. 6'1, 205 pounds.
Wade Hurley(Ranoria). 6'6", 230 lb. Arm strength reminiscent of guys like Ballast Queen, Ifeatu Chineze, or Deondre Rhine. Heavily relied on physical talent in high school, but has good grades and a hard-nosed, leadership oriented demeanor - a good coaching staff could make him a menace, but fundamentals issues slid him down the rankings. Currently redshirting while Strom plays his senior year- expected to compete seriously next year for the starting job.

Tight Ends.
Kimi Lundin(Valanora). #87, Redshirt Sophomore. 6'1, 192 lbs, Lefthanded. An exceptional dual purpose tight end who is that reliable security blanket for a quarterback who has gone through their progressions and needs a checkdown or a good lead blocker for a patient runner who runs behind their blockers. The only concern with Lundin is he has had a history of sprained ankles and wrists, making some wonder if he might be a little injury prone, if only with minor injuries. It is a label that Lundin is desperately trying to shake as he moves into his collegiate career. Former #3 overall recruit out of Valanora. First year starter.

Head Coach: Lance Kabuye. 71 years old. The Head Coach is in his tenth season at Northern Moravica. Being hired in what many would describe as an 'awkward situation' in the beginning- the previous coach, himself fired, who then maneuvered his own way to being Athletic Director, and picking his own successor. Many coaches would not have done that, but they have a great AD-head coach relationship, and the results cannot be argued with. In four of Kabuye's first 7 seven seasons, they reached the NSCF Championship game, winning the whole thing in NSCF 19. While they did not end up with any silverware last season, the team still showed what they were made of. They were the only team to defeat Cold Hill during the regular season, a massive road win in the Big 8 v. Celestia Challenge. With no conference championships for three seasons running however, the team is looking to end that drought- to ensure that this senior class isn't the first in NMU history to not win a NSCF conference title.

Kabuye was the head coach of Wild Valley University, a smaller school in the eastern part of the Moravica region, for 6 years, before moving to Northern Moravica and the NSCF ahead of NSCF 19.

Offensive Coordinator & Assistant Head Coach: Kizza Otiembo. 41 years old. 1st year at Northern Moravica. Formerly the OC at Kizza I College for the last four seasons, before moving to this job. With no conference titles for the last three seasons, Lance Kabuye is looking to switch things up to get some conference silverware, before making the run at his desperately-wanted for second NSCF title. With the new OC, Kabuye is looking to commit to the run game. With a pair of talented young HBs in Amira Kong and Balinda Kisero, this offense is going to turn into a ground & pound- looking to be one of those offenses that runs the ball more than they pass it, maybe around a 55/45 run-pass split.

Could be risky. But that doesn't mean they don't have the ability to go over the top. They've got a senior QB, who's a 3rd year starter, in Felix Ström, who's completely unselfish. And they've got some serious WR talent- Jannik Nadine and Tyler Geese are an intriguing duo. Going back to ground & pound is the NMU way- even with this roster. Will Kabuye's commitment to the run open up the pass game, and make this offense explosive? Or will becoming more of a run-based offense, with three new starters on the OL, as well as bringing back the FB position, backfire?

Other Offensive Coaches
Quarterbacks Coach: Abraham Musa. 42 years old. 1st year at Northern.
Offensive Line Coach: Elizabeth Birungi. 44 years old. 1st year at Northern. Female. Older sister of the WRs coach, Kizza Birungi.
Tight Ends Coach: Ali Jawara. 52 years old. 1st year at Northern.
Wide Receivers Coach: Kizza Birungi. 39 years old. 3rd year at Northern.
Runnings Back Coach: Allan Xoosh. 45 years old. 1st year at Northern.

Defensive Coordinator & Assistant Head Coach: Okello Resa. 50 years old. He is entering his fourth season as the team's defensive coordinator. A school known for his defense, he's certainly going to have his work cut out for him. He's got an incredibly young secondary- the top 5 DBs on his depth chart, only one has recorded a start(Malcolm Shelvin). So pass defense will certainly be their biggest challenge. There's talent there, but the lack of experience can certainly hurt. Can he get them up to speed quickly enough to deal with the ridiculously fast pace of modern-day CFB?

Meanwhile, the front seven is his strength. The D-LIne is dominated by the dominant D-Tackle, Karl Sande- who commands double teams like nobody's business. But every single front 7 starter is an upperclassmen. They're up to speed, they've done this- this team is certainly going to be difficult to pass the ball against, and their strength in pass D is going to be their ability to get pressure.

Other Defensive Coaches
Defensive Line Coach: Corban Opiyo. 46 years old. 4th season at Northern, came from the same position at Hangaza A&M.
Linebackers Coach: Ahemed Gedeyon. 42 years old. 4th season at Northern, was the team's starting middle linebacker during NSCF 17.
Cornerbacks Coach: Omoit Lwegaba. 35 years old. 2nd season at Northern, a former high school head coach. Only 1st year coach on the staff.
Safeties Coach: Barabbas Ogolo. 37 years old. 4th season at Northern, a well-connected local high school coach.

Special Teams Coordinator:Sebowa Zilaba. 50 years old. 3rd year as Special Teams Coordinator. Consistent. Not much to do- solved the Alicia Woodbrough problem by recruiting NMU's current punter- and Dwayne Markseon is already elite.

Strength & Conditioning Coach: Odikinyi Achuka. 51 years old. 6th season as Strength & Conditioning Coach.

Recruiting Coordinator: Phoebe Odero. Female. 48 years old. 4th season as Recruiting Coordinator. One of two women on the coaching staff.

Out of the major NSCF awards, no NMU player has won the Most Outstanding Player award, Defensive Player of the Year, and Special Teams Player of the Year.

Rivals: Currently the biggest rival of Northern Moravica University is the University of Loyola-Istria, who the Cougars have played at least once a season the last 60 seasons. They have played each other 26 times in NSCF competition, with Northern being 17-11 overall against their archrivals to the South. They've beaten Loyola at least once every season in the NSCF, including sweeping Loyola in NSCF 13, NSCF 22, and NSCF 24. This includes the two teams splitting their playoff matchups. These two teams have long been seen as the top two college football teams in Banija, and indeed, their stranglehold over Banijan college sports has continued, as they dominate not only in football, the biggest collegiate sport, but most other sports as well. When it was discussed for which team should debut Banija on the world stage for college football, it ultimately came down to these two, and after heating exchanges of words between both Athletic Directors and School Presidents in public, and the Mayors of Istria & Herzegovina City, the Banijan College Sports Group(BCSG) decided on a 11-8 vote to send Northern. Domestically, the fallout was so bad, that although they had shared a conference since independence, on a domestic basis, Loyola-Istria split away from NMU into a different conference. The two schools played a thriller in the NSCF 18 quarterfinals, a matchup won by the Blue Thunder. With Loyola's incredible postseason runs in the NSCF, they finally regained the upper hand in this rivalry when they downed Loyola-Istria at the Istria Lightning Yard in the NSCF 19 semifinals, en route to their first ever NSCF title. In recent years, Northern Moravica has gained the upper hand in the rivalry. Northern Moravica has won 6 of the last 7 games in the rivalry, including sweeps in both NSCF 22 and NSCF 24. NMU had reeled off four consecutive wins at the Istria Lightning Yard between NSCFs 21 and 24, although the last two seasons the home teams were victorious in both contests.

While traditionally in the NSCF, NMU have played at home first, and Loyola-Istria have played at home second, this was reversed for the first time last season. However, with the new divisional setup, the order will switch ever year. This year, NMU will host Loyola-Istria in week 3, before traveling to the Istria Lightning Yard to end conference play in week 10.

An on and off NSCF rival is the former Vietussia Academy- now known as Hankow State University. They have played a number of games against the former Vietussia Academy when both schools were members of the Celestia Conference in NSCFs 13 and 14. The two former conference rivals play each other for the Golden Axe. When Vietussia Academy returned to the NSCF for NSCF 18 as part of a different conference, the two teams played each other on the final game of the season in United Vietussia. With Hankow State's return to the NSCF last season, NMU held onto the Golden Axe by smashing them in the final week of the regular season at home, 55-30, to improve to 3-3 in the rivalry. The rivalry has returned to the Celestia conference, as Hankow State has been placed in the opposite division, across NMU, and will travel to Herzegovina City again to battle for the Golden Axe in week 4.

A former Celestia Conference NSCF rival are the Salamantic Universities. The Salamantic Universities and Northern Moravica split the season series in NSCF 19-21, but the Salamantic Universities swept Northern in NSCF 22(in fact, they swept both Banijan schools). With them competing in the Celestia Conference, the rivalry continues to grow more heated between the schools every year. The official name of the trophy between the two schools is the 'Felinology Trophy', although students from both sides have unofficially named the trophy the 'Trophy of the Ancients' since the matchup is Cougars versus Professors. While Northern Moravica administrators were clear to say that was not the rivalry trophy's official name, with the lack of an official name, that has been the name tossed around by various outlets discussing the new rivalry. Northern Moravica has an all-time record of 5-7 against the Salamantics, and they presently are the trophy holders after a 21-0 shutout victory at home on Matchday 7.

The University of the Commonwealth of Baker Park is also considered a major foreign rival of Northern Moravica. These two teams have played every single season since UC-Baker Park joined the NSCF. The only season they did not schedule each other was NSCF 21, but the fates decided the two would play anyways, in the first round of the playoffs. UC-Baker Park won the sole playoff matchup between the two schools, 27-21. Northern Moravica has an all-time record of 4-4 against UC-Baker Park. There is no name nor trophy for this rivalry- but it is considered a scheduling priority for both schools every single year. This season, they are in the same conference for the first time, only upping the ante and the stakes of the rivalry.

Elephant Valley University of South Newlandia is considered Northern Moravica's newest conference rival. The two schools contested the 'Sally Trophy' for the first time last season, created between the two schools to honor the relationship between the two countries. The Sally Trophy is named after an elephant named Sally, which was the very first elephant to be brought to South Newlandia. This elephant, of course, came from Banija, where elephants are populous. The elephant ended up becoming the national animal of South Newlandia, and of course, the animal is the namesake for EVU. Northern Moravica won the first seven games in this rivalry, with the Sally Trophy being a fixture in the school's trophy case. However, the rivalry has ratcheted up, with EVU finally earning their first win over the Cougars, in a huge upset in Week 9 last season. Not only did they take the Sally Trophy for the entire Summer- but, to add insult to injury, that upset knocked NMU out of the Celestia Conference title race entirely. NMU will be eager to reclaim the elephant-shaped trophy in week 2, in a rivalry where they are currently 7-1 over EVU.

Lastly, Northern Moravica have developed a very recently, but fierce rivalry with former Celestia Conference rivals Woodstock University, of Sarzonia. The general Banijan-Sarzonian rivalry spilling over to college football, NMU is smarting at one of the few opponents who seem to consistently have their number. They have played both in non-conference and in-conference, and NMU had their first win in this rivalry over Woodstock last season, becoming the 'King of the Mountain' with their crushing 47-6 win over Woodstock U. They are 1-3 all-time against Woodstock.

Entrance: There is a unique stadium entrance at home games for the Cougars football team. A starting senior on each side of the football stands outside the tunnel, each one holding the school flag. They stand opposite each other with the flags lowered, and then raise the flags and let the entire team run through. After the team and staff runs through, those two starters run to the middle of the field and each plant their flag on the logo, signifying that this is their home field, and that they will fight to defend home field.

Championships: Northern Moravica has seven Celestia Conference championships in 14 NSCF seasons, winning the conference title in NSCF 12, NSCF 13, NSCF 17, NSCF 18, NSCF 19, NSCF 23, and NSCF 24. They won their only NSCF championship in NSCF 19. They finished as runner-ups in NSCF 20, NSCF 23, and NSCF 25. They also have the longest active playoff appearance streak in the NSCF, having appeared in the NSCF playoffs in every season since their return in NSCF 17, which is now at 11 consecutive seasons and counting.

Saul Adika. #67, Redshirt Senior. Transfer from the Ankole College for Creative Studies.

Haashid el-Mady(Jabal Akhdar). #3, Senior. Introduced to the sport when he enrolled at the University. Isa recruited a kicker who, at the final moment, decided to reject his scholarship offer and pursue his dream of becoming an Olympic swimmer. When Alanso Isa subsequently held open tryouts for kicker on campus, el-Mady, a former soccer player in his home country, turned out and won the job.

Vandra Krause(Nephara). #19, Freshman. Went to Bellbrook High in Crisisbless. Female.

Manne Nordström(Valanora). #20. Junior. 5'7, 181 pounds. Listed as a running back.
Kalu Kenyatta. #27, Junior. 6'1, 191 pounds. Listed as the backup strong safety.

Head Coach: Dennis Zervos, 46 years old. Second season at the helm. The prodigal son returns, eh? NSCF 14 champion as a QB(and Most Outstanding Player), he is well known for suffering a trio of ACL/MCL tears at the beginning of his professional playing career, that ended it before it even started. But rather than let that hold him back, he dove right back into coaching. When Loyola rejoined the NSCF at NSCF 17, he joined his alma mater as the offensive coordinator, and stayed there for 8 seasons.

After a power struggle following NSCF 25, he voluntarily left the school. He was floating for a while, before a head coaching job opened up in the RFL- to coach probably the greatest QB of our time, Sarai Gwenderyn. His innovative concepts in the RFL led them to win a league title, as he coached her for three seasons. But when Alanso Isa retired, despite him coaching in a great professional situation, the call to return to his alma mater proved too much to resist. "I love this team, I love this city, I love this school." Zervos said in his introductory press conference. "I won this competition as a QB, I won this competition twice as an Offensive Coordinator, and now, I'm on a singular minded mission to complete the turnaround that Alanso Isa started last season- bringing championship #4 to this campus."

Last season was definitely seen as successful. Obviously, the highlights of the season were home wins over rivals NMU and Felswyr State, followed up by the Celestia Conference championship. However, the season ended poorly- falling to archrivals Richardson U, by a score of 10-3, in the last game of the regular season, before falling in the first round of the playoffs, on the road against Staramara Tech. This year, he's looking for a school record fourth consecutive conference title- while trying to break the 6 year drought without a playoff win the school has had since their NSCF 21 title.

Offensive Coordinator: Raila Abura. 50 years old, second season as OC. With a new head coach, Loyola's offensive coordinator, Bethlehem Nangobi, left for a head coaching position at Wild Valley University. And so Zervos looked internally, promoting Raira Abura, the team's QB coach for the last two seasons and a former head coach himself, as their offensive coordinator. Abura is certainly not long for Loyola-Istria, as it is no secret he wants to be a head coach sooner rather than later.

While Zervos is clearly going to be the offensive mastermind of this team, both designing and calling the offensive plays, Abura will obviously have a lot of say in the game-planning and scouting department. We'll see how the two co-exist. But with an offense built around the young Chromatik quarterback AMV, and the swiss army knife tight end Russell Farmer, they will look to return Blue Thunder football to the very heights of the offensive game.

The offense is built around A-MV chucking it around. This is going to be a pass heavy offense- as it goes at Loyola-Istria. Probably around 60/40 throwing the football. While they've got a brilliant QB, she'll certainly have her challenges this year. Her security blanket, Russell Farmer, is gone. She's got a trio of widely talented WRs- but Schlachter has been inconsistent(although brilliant when he's on), and then her top two WRs are redshirt freshmen. Mega-talented freshmen, of course, with a year of practice experience- but no game experience. Basically an entirely brand new receiving corps. Can the coaching staff get them all up to speed with one another, so they can start this season, offensively, with a bang?

Other Offensive Coaches
Quarterbacks Coach: Katungi Kirabye. 41 years old. 2nd season at Loyola-Istria. Local high school coach.
Running Backs Coach: Justice Greenspan. 44 years old. 2nd season at Loyola-Istria. Starting running back for two Loyola NSCF championship teams(NSCF 14 and NSCF 17). No history coaching at any level, but connection and history with Zervos brought him here as a first time coach.
Wide Receivers Coach: Chambi Dalaya. 49 years old. 2nd season at Loyola-Istria.
Tight Ends Coach: Elea Mzuzi. 38 years old. 4th season at Loyola-Istria. Doubles as the team's Analytics Assistant. Former analytics director at Wild Valley University.
Offensive Line Coach: Jamba Shomari. 40 years old. 4th season at Loyola-Istria. Came as a well-connected high school coach.

Defensive Coordinator & Assistant Head Coach: Uhuru Besigye. 46 years old. Played with Dennis Zervos as a backup middle linebacker on Loyola's NSCF 14 championship team. When Rasheed Moyo, Loyola's last DC, decided to go back to the professional ranks with Alanso Isa's retirement. So, once again, Zervos used his deep seated connections to hire a coordinator that he knew. Besigye had a solid professional career, playing for 7 years before retiring. After that, at age 32, he got immediately into coaching. He was a high school head coach for four years, before moving up to the college ranks.

A linebackers coach for four more years, he finally got his first coordinator chance at Loyola-Jinja. He spent the last 3 years there before jumping at this opportunity to be a defensive coordinator at main campus. While that makes him persona non grata at Loyola-Jinja, it's clearly the move that's best for his career. Zervos is entrusting the entirety of his defense to this young coordinator, who is expected to coach a fiery, aggressive defense.

There is plenty of experience on this defense. Najee Isidora and Akhello Volson are its best players, but they've got experience and talent all across the board. While the quickness of their O can wear them down(the Blue Thunder have never been known for ball control), they expect to be balanced and well-rounded all across the defense.

Championships: The Loyola-Istria Blue Thunder have an incredible NSCF postseason record, being 19-7 all-time in the postseason in this competition, including a ridiculous 16-7 in playoff games and 3-0 in bowl games. in 13 seasons. Those, of course, give them three NSCF Championships- NSCF 14, NSCF 17, and NSCF 21. In NSCF 13, they won the Pioneer Bowl, and in NSCF 14 and NSCF 17, they won the NSCF championship, posting a 3-0 and 4-0 record in those two postseasons, respectively. In NSCF 18, they made a run to the NSCF title game, winning 14 games in a row until the title game in the Banijan capitol, only to fall to Mar Sara Tech. In both NSCF 19 and NSCF 20, they lost semifinals on their home field, falling to Northern Moravica at home in NSCF 19 and falling to Cold Hill at home in NSCF 20. They redeemed themselves in NSCF 21, defeating Cold Hill in the championship game. They have five Celestia conference championships, winning in NSCF 14, NSCF 20, NSCF 21, NSCF 25, and NSCF 26. Unfortunately for the team, however, they have not won a playoff game since their NSCF 21 title, meaning the team with one of the most insane postseason records of all time hasn't won a playoff game in half a decade. During that time period, however, has won a pair of bowl games, winning the Karmin-Falce Auto Bowl in NSCF 22 and the Mugisha III Memorial Bowl in NSCF 24.

The Blue Thunder have won 6 total conference, titles, including the last three on the bounce- NSCF 14, NSCF 20, NSCF 21, NSCF 25, NSCF 26, and NSCF 27.

Rivalries: North v. South Showdown against Northern Moravica. See Cougar History and Traditions for more.

Their big foreign rival is Richardson University of Ranoria, whom they play annually in the Rebel's Cannon Bowl. The young rivalry has developed quickly, as the teams compete for recruits off the field and championships on it. In NSCF 17, Loyola-Istria travelled to Richardson University for the first game of this rivalry, and lost a very close battle. But in the return in NSCF 18, Richardson University came to Busukuma, and defeated the Blue Thunder at the Stadium of the Restoration. The return was another close battle between the two schools, losing an instant classic in overtime in Ranoria. This rivalry is called the Rebel's Cannon Bowl, and is traditionally contested on the final weekend of the regular season. This season will be the ninth edition of the game. The first four of the games of the series have been won by the home side, with Richardson winning in NSCF 17 and NSCF 19, while Loyola-Istria emerged victorious in NSCF 18 and NSCF 20. However, Loyola-Istria triumphed in NSCF 21 en route to their third NSCF championship, to break that streak while winning on the road. And that was the last season Loyola beat their fierce rivals. Richardson went on a four year winning streak, and has now won 5 out of the last 6- including a 10-3 win last season over Loyola-Istria. With Richardson's first NSCF title last season, they've certainly got the upper hand in this rivalry at the moment- although Zervos is working his tail off to reverse that. He's told everyone that it is his "#1 priority" to knock them off their perch. Loyola currently sits with a 3-7 all-time record against their despised Ranorian rivals.

They also have a very competitive rivalry with Felswyr State University. The Chromatik school is an annual opponent for the Blue Thunder, and they sport some of the best NSCF QBs in history- with Isaka Jawara, a man who has two NSCF Offensive Player of the Year awards, as well as one Most Outstanding Player award, being a graduate of Loyola-Istria, and Sarai Gwenderyn- who is freaking Sarai Gwenderyn- having taken snaps for Felswyr State. Loyola is 3-4 all-time against their Chromatik rivals. Sarai got the best of them in the first three matchups across the first two years of this rivalry, which includes a pair of regular season wins, and a playoff win at the Istria Lightning Yard. But the Blue Thunder have finally found their footing, winning three of the last 4- including a big-time win in week 12 this past season against the Firehawks. The team will look to even the Series in Chromatika this year.

Lastly, the team has a brand new rivalry with Bingham Young University. The two Mormon schools in the NSCF- BYU v. Loyola-Istria. BYU, of course, is a first year entry to the NSCF, and Loyola-Istria jumped on the ability to have a matchup, as the Patriarch of Herzegovina has already stated that 'he wishes for inter-Mormon relations to tighten between the two nations'. The rivalry, while not yet being played, has already been dubbed as 'The Holy War'.

“Reload, Recalibrate, Re-Engage.”
Harrowitz, Governors Ready To Rock In NSCF 28

Governors players going through individual drills at practice

The excitement around this top-ranked Richardson team, fresh off the program's first ever NSCF title, is as high as it's been since John Garrett's NSCF 18 senior year. With a duo of rising stars in the backfield in sophomore quarterback Isaiah Hunter and running back Rylan Rodgers Jr poised to take center stage on offense, this team is loaded with talent on both sides of the ball, with plenty of returning starters from what was a historically dominant defense to run this thing right back.

Isaiah Hunter proved himself to be a steady presence during his freshman season and and shocked the world with a few big plays in the NSCF 27 championship against a stifling Staramara Tech defense. He’s looking to build on that success this year, and show that he can go from game manager to a game breaker in his sophomore season.

His judgement and accuracy have already garnered him recognition as one of the more exciting prospects in the NSCF, and with his top two targets in WR Constantina Perrier and TE Dustin van Halfensen returning, projecting him to put up more than last season’s twenty six hundred yards and fifteen scores passing isn't a stretch.

He may not have the ceiling of Anne-Maurice Vavayavich, Kadesh Odika, or Benoit Youngblood, but if being under center for the #1 team in the sport isn’t enough for you, Hunter is already an NSCF Champion and a proven winner going into his second season. Underestimating him in favor of taking away the ground game is a mistake few teams will have the luxury of getting away with this season.

And of course, Rylan Rodgers Jr. proved to be a human missile in that ground game. “The Butler’s” incredibly rare combination of speed and size align with an uncanny ability to break off long runs make him a bear to take down in the open field, but he only earned his first start against (I know, I hate mentioning them too) Loyola-Istria. Mind you, he proceeded to bring the Rebel's Cannon back with a game-winning touchdown run on the biggest stage, and put this team on his back against Cold Hill in the semifinals. Rodgers Jr tallied an insane 247 yards and four touchdowns to pick up the slack just once for a defense that had carried them all season, leading the way for a 53 point outburst even as the Buffalo sliced up the best defenders in the game for 42. Oh, right, and he had the game-winner in the closing seconds against the Lava, no biggie.

For him, the question is less about talent and more about his ability to take on the workhorse role in a run-heavy offense. Rylan had under 170 carries despite an explosive season with Horace Billing get most of the work until that showdown against ULI, he'll likely be asked to take well over 300 for the Governors this season as the starter. Of course, he has some help in big Benjamin Merik behind him.

But these two youngsters, as electric as they can be, aren’t the backbone of this team.

The Governors' defense, led by mastermind Kasen Harrowitz, was the class of the NSCF last year and it’s shaping up to be just as fearsome this season. Cornerback Takeuchi Ichiko - tied as the runner up for DPOY last season - is set up for a dominant season, after having established himself as one of the best corners in the game. Behind him, sophomore Packard Goss appears to have won the CB2 role from seasoned veteran Karl Fortis, who's now battling with a pair of talented freshmen Rodney Knight and Munanire Tembo just to see the field.

Up front, they’ll be losing NSCF 27 Most Outstanding Player Kasper Ulvestad just one season after his running mate, Gideon Kearse, declared for the draft after winning the NSCF 26 DPoY. Not to worry, Harrowitz’s recruiting has prepared this defense for those losses. With DT Malchiel Lukiwiya entering his junior year, he’s coming into his physical prime as an already known force on the interior, and Delaclav Shean Eckert flashed last season off the edge - he’s earned praise from defensive line coach Alton Kearse for his performance in camp thus far and is looking to take a big step forward as a pass rusher.

All of these ingredients add up to a Governors team that’s got the potential to make another deep push, a team that took a rapid upward ascent once HC Kasen Harrowitz took the helm. With their stronghold of Dietrich Stadium and a well-coached roster that won't be allowed to rest on their laurels, the Governors are poised for another deep run in the playoffs after so many one-and-done seasons under the previous coaching regime. And of course, everyone will be waiting with baited breath to see their showdowns with Benoit Youngblood and Anne Maurice-Vivayavich, superstar quarterbacks leading out RU’s most bitter rivals in Cold Hill and Loyola-Istria, respectively. In last year’s semifinal, Youngblood made himself the first to figure out the Governors, while AMV will be coming for blood after her prolific season came to a screeching halt in the Karmin-Falce Superdome.

In Harrowitz’s 3rd season, it’s a new dawn for the Richardson Governors after winning a long overdue title. The monkeys are off this program's back - a 12-1 campaign in his first season to wrest the Big 8 from Cold Hill's stranglehold and a championship in year two have rewritten the history of one of the NSCF's blue-blood programs. Now it's time to keep the momentum going. We’ll get our first look at the NSCF 28 edition of this team when they visit Archalit to take on the Ironpeak Institute, but most agree that their real tests during the conference slate will come against Cold Hill, who swept them in conference play last season to tear away the Big 8 crown - though that’s a consolation prize at best after Richardson knocked them off to make it to the NSCF Chanpionshiop game.

Benoit Youngblood was the only passer that really gave this team trouble in NSCF 27. Whether that trend will continue is to be determined. It’s a new season and a new team - and that means everything will have to be proven once again.

Chris Dale Sets Tone With Cold Hill's Battle Cry This Season: "Climb The Mountain," For A Team That Hasn't Been To The NSCF Championship In Half A Decade

Big Kasozi Batte towering over his position coach as Cold Hill prepares for the regular season

“#2 in the NSCF?” Chris Dale raised an eyebrow at the question at a post-practice presser. “We haven’t been to the NSCF championship since we had Rhine under center in 22. That’s a joke, we haven’t earned that kind of praise right now.”

Ouch, especially from such a normally arrogant and complimentary head coach.

It's been a tumultuous few seasons for a team that was the undisputed premier program in football for a few seasons. Between Rhine's heir-apparent in Aurel Strathos flopping and the guy after him proving to be one of the worst quarterbacks in program history, Cold Hill's vaunted offense had a rough few seasons. Fortunately they were able to stay afloat with the help of program legends like Proko and Victoria Mio in the secondary. But despite fielding the best defenses in the school's history with those two players on the field, Rhine's departure clearly marked the end of the Buffalo's place on the throne of college football, even with a 13-0 regular season the Buffalo had their hearts broken by Northern Moravica in the semifinals.

This is a team that operates best when they have a superstar under center. And that they certainly have. Benoit Youngblood was the best quarterback in the NSCF last season, putting up the most prolific passing numbers any Ranorian has managed at this level en route to a 12-1 berth before his Herculean effort in the semifinal wasn't quite enough to overcome Richardson's first ever championship squad.

It should be noted to - no one quite gave that Governors team trouble like Benoit. In their first fourteen contests, Richardson conceded just 185 points including a 26-0 shutout against Hankow State in the quarterfinals. 37 of those came against Cold Hill in an overtime loss to the Buffalo in Richardson's sacred Dietrich Stadium, the first Governors regular season loss at home in the Harrowitz era. 13 more came in a week 3 win in the Tundra. Then came the semifinal.

Benoit Youngblood showed up ready for war, hanging up 42 points on the best defense in college football since NSCF 22 in what, despite multiple turnovers, may have been the best quarterbacking performance of the season to put up that many points against the Governors.

For those of you keeping track, that's a total of 227 points over 15 games relented by Richardson. They allowed 6 more in the NSCF Championship for a total of 233. Of those 233, Benoit Youngblood piled on a whopping 92 of those in three contests. Between he and Chris Dale, they were able to dissect defensive mastermind Kasen Harrowitz's defense. Fortunately when it counted most in the semifinals, Richardson's offense showed up as well, with Rylan Rodgers Jr. exploding for 247 scrimmage yards and a quartet of scores.

Benoit Youngblood's never been a vengeful person. After Chromatik leaders like Victoria Mio and Candace Ferrett helped to establish a strong culture in the team, Youngblood has cemented it. His positivity, enthusiasm for the game, and steady demeanor were a boon for the Buffalo's third 12+ win season in their NSCF tenure. But it'd be nothing short of ignorant to think he doesn't have a chip on his shoulder after that loss - he showed he could put a defense that held fellow superstar AMV to just a field goal on the ropes - he firmly believes he's the best quarterback at this level, and he's determined to show it.

Chris Dale meanwhile, has been harsh on this team in training camp, cracking down and forcing as much discipline and effort as he can out of this team.

"We were on top of the mountain," the now aging offensive mind iterated, "Kings of college football, but we fell down, and down, and down. We have to climb back to the top of that mountain once again. And this time, we'll be built to stay there for a long time. We have superstars now, and we have future superstars behind them this go round."

The implication seems obvious - Deondre Rhine passed the torch to a massive disappointment in Aurel Strathos. Both were prototypical sized egomaniacs with cannons for arms, but this time the team seems to have picked better. Benoit Youngblood and his heir apparent, freshman Viktor Rowles, are natural born leaders with talent to burn and all the physical attributes a team looks for. When the torch gets passed this time, there will be no collapse, no scramble to find a quarterback that leads a team to starting the likes of Robin Sterling again.

Of course, to stay at the top, the Buffalo will have to get to the top first, and that's easier said than done these days.

Known affectionately as "The Horseshoe" to locals and to many across TJUN-ia, Sherwood Field combines the raucous atmosphere of a college game with the surrounding local scenery that the region is known for. The big patch of grass in front of the scoreboard is accessible to fans, allowing for a unique viewpoint of the game we all love. While it certainly isn't the biggest venue in all of TJUN-ia, not just the NSCF, its warm and close-up atmosphere can certainly make the difference come game time...

Note: List of the 72 member institutions. This includes the school names, nicknames, and locations(city, state). As well as the school type(public/private, land/sea/space grant, if any. OOC Note to grader: This list has been created for over a RL year(although adjusted continuously over the course of the past year), so it should not count as part of the RP grade for this post.


Army v. Navy Game as college football season kicks off in the Kingdom

BUSUKUMA, NATIONAL CAPTIOL REGION- In Banija, the college football season kicks off in what is called week 0, with one game- the Kabaka's Military College v. the Banijan Royal Naval Academy, taking place at the national stadium in our country's capitol city. Much better known at home, of course, as Army v. Navy. A game heaping with tradition. Every single BCSG coach attends the game in a show of support for the troops, and all major party leaders generally attend the game together. The Kabaka also attends- doing the official coin toss for the contest, and handing out the trophy.

Of course, this is a unique college football season. Why? At another point of great change. Greatest change since Loyola-Istria and NMU left domestic competition for good, starting with NSCF 17. The BCSG is expanding. The top 8 Division II schools have come up to form the Banijan Athletic Conference- the country's only non-geographically based conference(although we have outliers in other conferences). That means the BCSG is at 72 schools- 8 conferences of 9 schools. Guarantee a bye week in conference play, good for player safety.

And, of course, we have our two NSCF schools- NMU and ULI, both with championship or bust hopes, as they have every year. Loyola-Istria is smarting- they have watched their two primary non-conference rivals, Felswyr State and Richardson U, win NSCF championships in back-to-back seasons, while they haven't won a playoff game since their last title in NSCF 21. Northern Moravica, on the other hand, has had plenty of playoff success in recent years- but for some reason can't seem to win the big one. Can one of these teams get back to the top?

Let's give a full-on preview, shall we?

BCSG Preview

Preseason Top 10
#1 Kizza I College Cubs(0-0)
#2 Zakuta State Crocodiles(0-0)
#3 University of Aksum Silverbacks(0-0)
#4 Wild Valley Golden Hornets(0-0)
#5 University of Moravica Golden Bears(0-0)
#6 Loyola-Jinja Ostriches(0-0)
#7 University of Ankole Warriors(0-0)
#8 Islamic U of Busoga Caracals(0-0)
#9 Hangaza Tech River Rats(0-0)
#10 Lake Wakiso State Lukwata(0-0)
Honorable Mentions:
Mamari U Sand Spiders(0-0), U of Kitara Hippogriffs(0-0)

The preseason top 10! Of course, making preseason polls are a fool's errand, of course- but reasonable expectations on how teams will be. Look at the top 3 favorites to win a national title this year- we'll start with Kizza I College. One of Banija's most historic programs, they've got an absolutely loaded roster. Led by Oladobu Nantambu at QB, as well as a pair of expected first round picks at WR, the Busukuma school is absolutely ready to get after it.

Next, we've got a rising Zakuta State. Traditionally not such a great school, they've been transformed by the arrival of Alastair Jobs Jr.- the son of the famed Loyola-Istria coach, who won two NSCF titles. The Crocodiles have developed into a power program in Banija, and they are going to seriously compete for probably their first ever national championship. The University of Aksum, as well- the Silverbacks are built on the ground and pound offense.

What about the rest of this top 10? Let's go through it. The UCC has three schools here- Wild Valley U, Lake Wakiso State, and the Islamic U. Talent concentrated in the Moravica region- no surprise to anyone who follows the NSCF. There's a reason both of Banija's NSCF blue bloods are from the same state. Especially in South Moravica- Lake Wakiso State is in the Istria suburbs. While they don't really compete with the NSCF schools for recruits(nobody can), they make a killing on recruits in and around Istria who dreamed of playing for the Blue Thunder, but simply aren't good enough. Lake Wakiso State also clock in as our defending national champions- first ever title last year. Wild Valley U and the University of Moravica(who is in the VIC) do the same thing within Moravica. There's enough talent in this growing and wealthy state for everybody to eat.

Think about U of Moravica. Their biggest, most hated rival is Northern Moravica. They're a basketball school. But yet- their gridiron program is really started to hum along. A dark horse, we think, for a national title. Then, there's Loyola-Jinja. Any surprise that Loyola-Jinja, part of the same uni system as Loyola-Istria, is huge on gridiron? Even if it is more commuter- being situated in Banija's third largest city has its perks. We've also got University of Ankole, and Hangaza Tech. Banija's college gridiron scene, probably a rarity, is dominated by big-city schools, as opposed to smaller college town schools(whom neutrals do tend to root for).

It'll be a fun ride. Maybe someone will go unbeaten?

Domestic Format

The regular season format is fairly simple to explain. There are 12 games played across 13 weeks. Week 0, of course, is Army v. Navy. Weeks 1 and 2 are non-conference games. Then, weeks 3-11 are conference games- everyone plays 8 conference games across those 9 weeks. Each conference schedule is a single round robin, where everybody plays everybody once. Then, weeks 12 and 13 are more non-conference games- where everybody's playing.

Then, for the postseason. 16 teams make the playoffs. The 8 conference champions automatically make the playoffs, and then there are 8 at-large teams that are invited by what is called "The Tournament Committee" to join them in the playoffs. There are seeded 1-16(conference champions are NOT given priority seeding), and it is single knockout to the Final- which is the only game played at a neutral site.

This system allows for four major bowl games. Teams that are eliminated from the Playoff Tournament are invited to play in bowl games, all four of them happening on the same Saturday- the day before the national title game, which is the only Sunday game of the year(GFLB does not play the day of the national championship game). Here are the four bowl games.

Banijan Major Bowl Games
Olympic Bowl- At the Istria Olympic Stadium(cap. 80,000) in Istria, Moravica. UCC champion(if available) v. N-9 Champion(if available).
Dinosaur Bowl- At the Watering Hole(cap. 63,000) in Lwanga, Buganda. SVC champion(if available) v. BAC champion(if available).
Mango Bowl- At Mavuto Field(cap. 75,000) in Hoima, Ankole. SSC champion(if available) v. KRC champion(if available).
Sunflower Bowl- At the new Liberty Stadium(cap. 71,000) in Herzegovina City, Moravica. LCC champion(if available) v. VIC champion(if available).

Availability, of course, depends on if they are in the national championship game. If they're playing for the title, then obviously they are not available- and the said conference champion will be replaced by an at-large invite of the bowl's choosing. These are considered extremely prestigious at home to be champions of, and draft-eligible players sitting out a major bowl game is almost unheard of.

Then, of course, there is the national championship game. Called the BCSG National Championship Game, it takes place every year at the Stadium of the Restoration(cap. 91,835) in Busukuma, National Capitol Region. It is the only game each season that takes place on a Sunday- otherwise, all games are on Saturdays, other than a select few that are flexed to Thursday nights for TV purposes. No games are ever played on Fridays to allow high schools to play without competition.

Top 5 Domestic rivalries
There are so many good ones. The one we're really remiss not to include on here is the battle of the Loyolas- the fierce competition between Loyola-Jinja and Loyola-Busukuma is always a classic. But it's not that competitive on the field- Loyola-Busukuma is a school specifically for future members of the clergy, as well as future diplomats- not exactly a student population built to draw the best athletes. But let's take you through the top 5 rivalries, in our opinion, in Banijan CFB...(not in order).

Kizza I College v. U of Ankole

Two schools who do not like each other. The Cubs are an ancient sporting power, generally being the overwhelmingly dominant of the traditionally three(now four) Division I schools in the Banijan capitol. And the University of Ankole, the premier research University in the region that borders the capitol. They have been dominant powers in the Southern Shango Conference for a long time, and with Kizza I College's national title hopes especially high this year, the rivalry is expected to continue having heat.

While the Cubs are more historically successful(9 national titles to the Warriors 1), the Warriors somehow have a winning playoff record against the Cubs- 3-2 over them. The biggest recent moment in this rivalry came in the season coinciding with NSCF 24. Kizza I College went unbeaten in the regular season- first Banijan team to do that in three years at that point. 1v16 matchup against an 8-4 Warriors team who had barely gotten into the playoffs. Warriors came to Busukuma and stunned the Cubs- a 9-6 win, in a windy rainstorm, to stun what many called 'the Cubs best ever squad' from even sniffing a national title.

Wild Valley v. Lake Wakiso State

Two Moravica rivals, in the same Upper Coastal Conference. Historically a conference dominated by NMU and ULI, them going to the NSCF has opened up things at home within Moravica. And they have taken the most advantage of it. Historically, every Moravica school lists either ULI or NMU as their greatest rival- showing the dominance that the Celestia Conference pairing had over Banijan CFB. But these two are the only two who didn't- not liking each other from the get-go.

What's the historical source of this rivalry? Local politics! That's right. Moravica, nearly 80 years ago, were facing a budget shortfall during a recession, and were making cuts. The Premier at the time, a Lake Wakiso State grad, proposed a budget that would have closed down Wild Valley for good. He called the school "an unnecessary waste of money for grads, when this region has plenty of options- like U of M, NMU, and Lake Wakiso State, my alma mater." The budget actually passed- but Wild Valley had friends in higher places, and money came quickly from the Lukiiko to save the school.

There's been serious animosity between the two since. Interestingly enough, Lance Kabuye, NMU's current head coach, used to be HC at WVU before going to Northern Moravica at the beginning of NSCF 19.

Hangaza Tech v. U of Bunyoro

Bunyoro, of course, is known more as a basketball region. And it is- basketball is probably more the lifeblood of Bunyoro's schools, as a whole, than gridiron. But Bunyoro has one school that one could seriously consider a football school- and that's the University of Bunyoro. The Triceratopses are a football school, living and dying with the sport. And their big rival- Hangaza Tech. Bunyoro's at the heart of a smaller, more rural region- the big city out there, truly, is Aissa- close to the Bunyoro border, the capitol of Hangaza, where Hangaza Tech is located.

There are a lot of University of Bunyoro grads in Aissa, and other Bunyoro non-college people- it's that local proximity that really drives this rivalry. Geography is everything, right? That said, the River Rats have the recent advantage- they are currently riding a 7 game winning streak over their rivals, much to the disdain of anybody who roots for the Triceratopses.

U of Moravica v. U of Hangaza

The University of Moravica. The University of Hangaza. The state universities of the two biggest states in the country, who border each other, and are in the same conference. An easy rivalry, right? Not exactly. NMU, of course, is the true state school of Moravica- despite it technically being a directional school. But Moravica and Hangaza do not like each other, and have not liked each other for a very long time. With Hangaza being the source of Banija's oil, however, the University of Hangaza has quickly grown in stature as their alumni base is oil-dominated- a 'nouveau rich' kind of institution.

What really drives this rivalry to its hatred levels? Well, for the past 22 years, they have each been coached by men who are twin brothers of each other- Abraham(Moravica) and John(Hangaza) Fetja. But not just any twin brothers- brothers who are estranged from each other, no less. It's a wild sight to see- they do not like each other, and both allow the family tension to drive animosity towards the other school.

U of Aksum v. Aksum State

A classic in-state derby. Aksum v. Aksum State. This is Banija's third oldest rivalry- after ULI v. NMU, and NMU v. University of Moravica. There is no love lost, as Aksum is generally evenly divided between fans of its two largest public schools.

The rivalry has some of the most fun traditions in all of college football. Whenever the University of Aksum plays at home, students have a tradition of going to the student center the night before, and burning an Aksum State university flag. A wild tradition to exist, but it shows the level of hatred between the two schools. On the flip side, whenever you have "True North hate week" (the name of the rivalry), Aksum State fans have been known to pull all sorts of pranks on the University of Aksum- including graffiting the business school last year. While U of Aksum fans say they are 'too classy' to retaliate, it is a heated local rivalry.

U of A have won 9 of the last 10 in this rivalry. However, that one for Aksum State is the only playoff matchup in history between the two schools, winning 31-28, in OT, in the first round of the playoffs in the season coinciding with NSCF 25.

Loyola-Istria Mini Preview

The Blue Thunder. The first-time Savannah Division champions. The three-time defending champions of the Celestia Conference. The three-time champions of the NSCF, the active leader in NSCF titles- tied with the University of Utica for the most NSCF titles of all-time. And yet... They are not happy. That's what happens when you're this good- the expecations are through the strasophere. "Be better than your rivals." Any sane person knows, of course, Dennis Zervo's first season was a success- won the Celestia, made the playoffs. They beat Felswyr State too- an important rival.

But there were some frustrations, of course. They lost by 20+ in their last matchup against NMU. They lost against Richardson U. The three seasons have seen all of Loyola's rivals play for a NSCF title(NSCF 25- NMU, NSCF 26- FSU, NSCF 27- Richardson), with the last two winning championships. The famous line of "we've got more NSCF titles than all of our rivals combined" is over- they combined for four(NMU 1, RU 1, FSU 2) compared to Loyola's 3.

With all that being said, they are in good shape. They're returning a stud QB in A-MV. And they've got an elite coach in Dennis Zervos. He told media that the team is building towards something special. "Look- we've always been the stronger program in Banija. But by happenstance, NMU racked up a bunch of conference titles. We've been fixing that imbalance- soon, we'll overtake them in conference titles as well. We're building on last season- we've got to win a playoff game and make a championship push."

The biggest Q for this team is the WR corps. They're returning a QB who had the best tight end in the sport, Russell Farmer, graduate- as well as her WR1. Loyola-Istria has two redshirt freshmen starting with Marcel Schlachter at WR. "They're replacing a lot of production at WR. Can these young guys get up to speed fast enough? We shall see." If they do, of course, expect this passing offense to be scary.

Northern Moravica Mini-Preview

Lance Kabuye of NMU declared his intention to end his conference title drought. "Look, we've always had more conference titles than Loyola-Istria. It makes sense- we're the stronger program in every way. They haven't won a playoff game since Amazu Chibuzo was their quarterback. Now, they've got 6. And they've got 3 in a row. We're going to continue to build out that gap- get title #8 soon. And more importantly, this may be one of the most balanced NMU teams you've ever seen. We're built to run the football, with two RBs. But with our senior QB? And with the WR corps that we have- especially with Geese and Nadine? I hate to toot my own horn, but I'm about as excited for this season as I've been for any season in a LONG time. I truly believe this team's going to do special things this year."

A firm belief exists in this program, as it always does, about their superiority over Loyola-Istria. But Lance Kabuye's chase for a second NSCF title, to put him really among one of those all-time great CFB coaches, continues to get more difficult. Fortunately, the schedule does some favors- drawing both Upper Westside and Hankow State at home. "Winning championships is hard. Winning in this competition- even harder." Said another coach. We'll see. This team is going to be scary on offense. They are going to rely on their backs, but yet, have a great ability to throw the ball, with Strom tossing it to Nadine and Geese.

It's not an easy opening to the schedule. They'll play Ratzupalfu on a Friday night to open the season, and then EVU on the road in week 2. What are the priorities this year? Get those rivalry trophies(EVU, ULI, Hankow State). Two- win the Celestia. Three- get a top seed? It's always been hard to win playoff games- but NMU makes it harder on themselves by always playing 'em on the road. The goal is high- top 4 seed for the playoffs. If they can get there... whose to say a trip to play for a NSCF title isn't in the cards?

Army V. Navy
Played at the Stadium of the Restoration(cap. 91,835) in Busukuma, National Capitol Region
Army Raiders 30–23 Navy Seamen

First game of the year. Army v. Navy. You know the Banijan traditions surrounding this game. Every single BCSG coach in the country flies down to the game, bringing the captain, plus a player or two. And the game is played at the national stadium- packed for the official 'kickoff' game of college football. Week 0. This is also where coaches happen to do their media days. Per usual, the Loyola-Istria Coaches and NMU coaches were the most popular people at media days.

But there was a football game to be played as well. Army v. Navy. After all the pomp and circumstance, it finally came about. Army, of course, is out here running the triple option. They jumped out to an early lead in the first half. A lot of field goals- but four solid drives, as they dominated the TOP and the line of scrimmage in the first half. They only got one TD, however, as the military school kicked a trio of field goals as well. Still, a great lead- up 16-0 at halftime is nothing to sneeze at.

Still, things can always turn around in a hurry in a college football game. Army thought they were cruising when they came out at halftime, after allowing a big return to Navy, to then force a three and out. But Navy's punter was excellent, pinning the Raiders down at the 1 yard line. That's where things started to go haywire for Army. Their QB was tackled in the end zone, for a safety. Then, of course, Army punted. The score was 16-2. The ensuing drive would need just one play- a perfect play-action, where Navy went over the top for a 55 yard TD pass. Suddenly, it was 16-9.

Towards the end of the quarter, Navy got an interception at the Raiders 27 yard line, and returned the ball all the way to the Army 4 yard line. It took Navy just two plays to tie the game from there- 16-all, headed into the fourth quarter. Army finally got their mojo back. 17 plays, 77 yards, a ridiculous 8:50 off of the clock, and they scored- 23-16 to the Raiders. And their defense stepped up after that. A pick six for the Raiders, with 4:30 left, made it 30-16 in favor of Army, a score that would show this was mostly over, right?

The Seamen did end up scoring with about 47 seconds left in Q4, to make it 30-23. Then, the onside kick was successful. They'd end up having one shot to win it- a 2nd and goal at the Raiders 8 yard line, with one second left. But Army refused to go down- Navy could not handle the blitz on the final play of the game, and Army's DE had a strip sack, that he himself recovered. Game over- Army triumphs, 30-23.

Army got the trophy. And Army sang second. What a ballgame- we've got plenty more of where those came from. What a way to kick off the college football season, right? Who's ready to play some football!!!

Universidad Politécnica Autónoma del Metro-Boca Rana
¡Los Zorillos!

Stadium: Arena Mateo Y. Tassis Boca Rana, San Armando Federal District: cap. 54,210
Colors: Black-and-White. The mascot is "Zorro", a skunk.

ONE OF GRAN SAGUARO'S oldest secular universities, the Universidad Politécnica Autónoma del Metro-Boca Rana (UPAM) is perhaps among of the most famous in the country. Located in the heart of downtown San Armando, Gran Saguaro's primate city and capital, the Boca Rana neighborhood evolved from a working class district of textile mills and distilleries into a bohemian, dynamic area beloved by Gran Saguaro's artists, innovators, and cultural leaders (UPAM strongly rejects the notion that Boca Rana has become "gentrified", and especially the accusation that the university has contributed to such a phenomenon). UPAM offers the perfect mix of urban life and secluded college town feel — the university is contained by a massive, waterfront-adjacent, seismically-active campus block affectionately called "University City", to provide peace of mind for the students but easy access to all that San Armando has to offer.

UPAM is also a world-class research university, on the forefront of Saguareño innovation; UPAM's labs have seen the development of, among others, Plas-Nex, an eternally non-degradable plastic; alduprasine, or the "temporary sober" pill; and a strain of wheat that can grow in nearly 200-degree-celsius temperatures. Nevertheless, UPAM has so much more to offer than just the stellar Kiff College of Sciences; the university boasts a top-notch College of Business, the Abner Trujillo College of Liberal Arts, the Zwillman College of Design (housed in an expressionist beige building along the inner waterfront, which can be best described as "bubbling"), the Morales School of Law, the Raquel Nickelman College of Mathematics, and the SuperColegio, home to UPAM's undeclared-major students and an eight-story black-and-white block synonymous with the university.

UPAM is not limited, however, to being solely an academic school! Our oceanside location features plenty of perks; the most fun of which is UPAM's one-kilometer private beach, open only to UPAM residents (and selected guests) 24/7 (when not being utilized for beach volleyball) and patrolled by student lifeguards. The students in the History and Anthropology department operate a free-access museum, and the Botany students have begun a process of outfitting every large building with a rooftop community garden. The Geology department students actively monitor the seismic fault that UPAM sits on; the flexible metal bridge over the fault is a popular selfie and first-kiss spot. UPAM is home to over nine different fraternities, and seven sororities; thirty-two dorms; an honors college, where the students live in Honors Tower, a spacious tudor-revival home (because the Honors Tower was built in 1971, there are too many honors students for the tower — most honors college students live in the adjacent Mendoza Heights 16-story brick building constructed in 2004); and of course, eighteen highly-ranked varsity sports.

UPAM's College Gridiron team is the (second) most popular (after basketball); under then-sophomore (now-junior) César Del Rey, UPAM won the National Brooch in an overtime win against then-highest-ranked UPRC-U after a 72-yard Quarterback sneak on a fourth down. UPAM has a longstanding gridiron rivalry with the City College of San Armando, which has been lopsidedly in favor of the Zorrillos for the past twenty-odd years. This is UPAM's first time at an international gridiron competition.

University of Mancodas Team Roster
Stadium: MancodasTown Sports Complex (18,000), Mancodas

About the University
University of Mancodas is the top university in Poafmersia, with the School of Enginerring (SoE), Mancodas Business School (MBS) and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) as three of the biggest strengths of the University. The university is also one of the 3 major universities in Poafmersia, including the Maximus Rochester Institute for Science and Technological Research (MRI) and the Fiskadaha School of Liberal Arts (FSLA).

In Poafmersia, universities go by the semester system, rather than by the trimester system used in quite a number of other nations. Poafmers typically have courses between 3-4 years for a honours degree, up to 6 years if going for a masters degree. As high school/junior college programs end at around 18 years old, a year 1 student in Poafmersia typically refers to a 19 years old. Do the math upwards.

Note: In Poafmersia, sports are mostly gender-blind. If a female has better capabilities than a male, then they have equal opportunities to get into the team. As such, whatever in brackets will refer to their gender. The ones underlined are main starters.

Main Team Strategy: Pace and offense goes hand-in-hand for the Mammoths, and they have evolved to using the team's strong stamina as a way of pushing attacks fast and quick. Which also explains why they go all out for offense - they really don't like to sit deep and defend, and once they get the ball, a quick push towards the other end will certainly do them well.

High School Football is back! Last time around, Lisa Bonsoon and the Blue and White stopped Mt. Niar from a title once again - while establishing their second in a row. Can anyone stand up to them? With so many good Senior Quarterbacks, will one of the smaller, lesser known schools make a run? Let us see!

Reminder: Tiebreakers are H2H Results then H2H PD. For three-way ties, overall PD is used as the first tiebreaker, and then H2H Results come in for the second and third teams. For ties involving more than three teams, overall PD is used.

Rainbow District

Diamond Conference
Predicted Order of Finish:
1. Tears of the Revolution High School Saints (#13)
2. Lanar High School Rhinos
3. Lanar Central High School Bikers
4. Rainbow Central High School Cavaliers
5. Pelar High School Hurons
6. Twin Cities High School Gemini

Star Players
Tears of the Revolution High School: Junior RB Lark Fromis, Junior QB Andrew Wiggins, Freshman SS Roy Hilcrest
Lanar High School: Junior QB Inera Rhett, Sophomore MLB Ivan Heer, Freshman OLB Vance Jillian
Lanar Central High School: Senior WR Amanda Derulo, Junior FS Eric Djokovic
Rainbow Central High School: Junior TE Wilhelm Daniels, Senior OLB Henri Jefferson
Pelar High School Hurons: Sophomore QB Reeva Karlston
Twin Cities High School: Senior C Marx Jacoby-Jones

The Rundown:
Fresh off of a surprise trip to the District Championship, the Saints look ready to march on and on even without the service of MLB Irina Jones. Lark Fromis is a bruising back who doesn't mind contact, while Andrew Wiggins doesn't have a cannon of an arm but can be accurate in intermediate range. Add the promising recruit that is Andrew Wiggins to serve as a lynchpin on the defensive end, and the Saints are favorites for a reason. Their biggest threat will be the Rhinos - as Inera Rhett enters her second year of being the primary signal-caller. Ivan Heer and Vance Jillian are two players who look ready to take over their defense. A step below them are the Bikers, who will be relying on the length of Amanda Derulo, and the Cavaliers, who do have Henri Jefferson as one of the better blitzing linebackers in the country. The Hurons of Pelar will be hoping that Reeva Karlston will continue to develop as a bit of a cannon arm, while the Gemini have a good offensive line and not much else. No, the Saints have a golden opportunity to prove that it wasn't just a one-year blip - and they should be able to prevail.

Pearl Conference
Predicted Order of Finish:
1. North Sanar High School Riflemen (#14)
2. Jerome A. Samuelson High School Mimes (#25)
3. South Sanar High School Armadillos
4. Chromatik High School Recruits
5. Penat High School Understudy
6. Knetyohai City High School Peregrines

Star Players
North Sanar High School: Senior WR Ned Pill, Junior CB Larry Pinmichael, Sophomore QB Skyler Jazmin
Jerome A. Samuelson High School: Junior MLB Sandal Hyal, Senior TE Jerry Larx, Junior WR Tiffany Morales
South Sanar High School: Senior MLB Jacques Jones, Senior RB William Brine
Chromatik High School: Junior C Theodore Usania, Sophomore FS Swain Cadillac
Penat High School: Senior QB Kandice Mott
Knetyohai City High School: Senior RT Eddie Paul

The Rundown:
The Mimes went to the National Semifinals last season - Anderson Joseph, Jr. was a find, after all - while the Riflemen played second fiddle. This season should be no different - it should be a battle between these two teams. The Understudy are a one-person show, as Kandice Mott has to do everything with her legs, while the Peregrines are just weak all over the board. As for the Armadillos, they know how to run the ball and stop the run, but lack the firepower to win the conference; the Recruits of Chromatik High School have been building up, but it will take a year before Usania is a Senior, Cadillac a Junior, and some of the others have the experience. So, why will the Riflemen prevail? Skyler Jazmin has won their Quarterback competition - and with his ability to make decisions on the fly, he should be able to find Ned Pill, the team's offensive star. Larry Pinmichael will watch the defensive end. Jerome A. Samuelson reportedly doesn't have a Quarterback set up to take over the shoes of Anderson Joseph, Jr. - which will be why they falter, even though Sandal Hyal is a tackling machine and the duo of Larx and Morales can definitely catch the ball. No, it's Jazmin that gives the Riflemen the edge - and that should be enough.

Mountain District

Mining Guild Conference
Predicted Order of Finish:
1. Mt. Niar High School Anacondas (#19)
2. Z'ai'ai Central High School Hooligans
3. Randan High School Rapiers
4. Winter Heights High School Glaciers
5. Mt. Baker High School Abominable Snowmen
6. Jatho Agricultural High School Farmers

Star Players
Mt. Niar High School: Sophomore QB Dante Flowers (RAN), Junior WR Earl Silverman, Senior TE Jared Ittachi, Sophomore DT Roland Kyak, Senior CB Kiyah Everstrum
Z'ai'ai Central High School: Senior QB Terry Ryung, Senior LT Moses Leek, Senior OLB Carter Cooper
Randan High School: Junior QB Pavel Ingram, Junior RB Grayson Dettmen
Winter Heights High School: Senior DT Paul Grayson, Freshman DE Douglas Riems
Mt. Baker High School Abominable: Senior ILB Simon Gerard
Jatho Agricultural High School: Senior FB Willard Llana

The Rundown:
If Randan keeps showing up at Conference title games, don't they deserve more respect? Pavel Ingram can really throw the ball, and Grayson Dettmen is a formidable weapon, but they have no defense. As for Winter Heights, they have two formidable players on the defensive side of the ball, but have no offense. Can you imagine what they would be able to do if those two schools combined? The Abominable Snowmen have one key player in Simon Gerard, who can take over the game, and the Farmers will try to run the ball, but it's still the Anacondas and the Hooligans that are expected to run this Conference. The Anacondas lost Viktor Rowles, one of the best Quarterbacks to attend the school since Sarai Gwenderyn, but picked up an intriguing prospect in one Dante Flowers of Ranoria. Flowers will have plenty of opportunity to shine - Earl Silverman is a reliable target, Jared Ittachi is a great security blanket, and on the defensive side are Rolan Kyak, a run-stuffer and Senior CB Kiyah Everstrum, one of the best corners available this season. Flowers will simply need to outplay one Terry Ryung, who has been vying for his shot at the Conference crown. Ryung is a charismatic, influential leader who has Moses Leek in front of him. It's a shame he won't have too many star targets - but at least on the other side, Carter Cooper will be taking care of business. The Hooligans have their best shot at the Anacondas this season - but can they take it?

Snowy Fields Conference
Predicted Order of Finish:
1. Umbar Hills High School Grizzlies (#11)
2. Brisara Trade School Businessmen
3. Dynasty High School Royals
4. City of Umbar High School Monkeys
5. Brisara Central High School Hammers
6. Ming School of Business Traders

Star Players
Umbar Hills High School: Sophomore QB Ewan Pyrehamix, Senior MLB Beatrice Hak, Senior DE Erik Kessler
Brisara Trade School: Freshman QB Ciar Runst, Freshman WR Arley Fiestar, Senior RB Tary McLauren
Dynasty High School: Sophomore QB Gill Gaines, Freshman WR Drew Elliot, Jr.
City of Umbar High School: Senior QB Dimitri Kurchev, Freshman MLB Uriah Gimson
Brisara Central High School: Senior WR Ivan Nyer
Ming School of Business: Junior OLB Jessika Kyle

The Rundown:
The Grizzlies run this conference, led by a defense with Erik Kessler and Beatrice Hak - and now, they are Seniors, with Hak being the hammer and Kessler the speedster. Ewan Pyrehamix has proven to be someone with some upside with his arm strength. Tary McLauren in the backfield leads the Businessmen against them - now with a new Quarterback in Ciar Runst, a cerebral prospect who has quick reflexes, and Freshman WR Arley Fiester, who is freakishly tall at 6 feet, 10 inches. The Royals of Dynasty High School finally look ready to challenge them - Gill Gaines has wowed everyone at his level, while Drew Elliot, Jr. has some great hands. The Monkeys are led by Senior Quarterback Dimitri Kurchev, he who has made improvements in the last three years, while Uriah Gimson will be the one that takes over on the defensive end. Bringing up the rear will be the Hammers - who only have Ivan Nyer, a speedy daredevil, and the Traders of Ming School of Business, who have a top prospect in OLB Jessika Kyle but not much else. Grizzlies again? It seems likely.

Heartland District

Breadbasket Conference
Predicted Order of Finish:
1. East Shantarr High School Order (#7)
2. West Shantarr High School Scorpions (#12)
3. Anfanhar High School Mystery
4. Pùr Equestrian School Riders
5. Dragon High School Flames
6. Pùr Heights High School Destroyers

Star Players
East Shantarr High School: Senior CB Michael Larson, Sophomore QB Daemon Argonaut, Sophomore WR Draymond Sting, Junior TE Lara Simond
West Shantarr High School: Senior QB Francine Weller, Sophomore WR Draven Killjoy, Senoir LG Mylera Jorley
Anfanhar High School: Senior C Matthias Woodpecker, Senior RG Asphodel Myers
Pùr Equestrian School: Sophomore QB Ollie Ruckstread, Senior WR Oliana Pier
Dragon High School: Freshman QB Lee Jung-Hyeon
Pùr Heights High School: Senior QB Frederick Killaman

The Rundown:
With Daemon Argonaut's accuracy leading the way, the Order surprised everyone with a Semifinals berth last season. This time around, Cornerback Michael Larson - a shutdown corner - helps out on the defensive side of the ball while Draymond Sting acts as the possession receiver for the team, alongside Tight End Lara Simond, a hybrid player who can both block and catch the ball. Their archrivals, the Scorpions, will rely on Francine Weller to lead them with Mylera Jorley blocking the way; Weller has a rocket of an arm and is unique in that she is ambidextrous. With Draven Killjoy emerging as another offensive weapon - he's as elusive as can be - the Scoripons could really give the Order a run for their money this season. Anfanhar has the line but not much else, while Pùr Equestrian will be relying on the combination between Ollie Ruckstread and Oliana Pier, one of the fastest threats in the country; as for the bottom-feeders, Lee Jung-Hyeon is the one that all of the Flames' hopes rest on, while Frederick Killaman of the Destroyers will continue to try to single-handedly try to win games as a run-first Quarterback.

Dairy Conference
Predicted Order of Finish:
1. City of Lorentine High School Wizards (#10)
2. Cheonju Korean Institute Red Devils (#18)
3. Crix Technical High School Chameleons
4. Crix Arts Institute Artisans
5. Cheonju High School Condors
6. Lorentine Central High School Majestics

Star Players
City of Lorentine High School: Sophomore QB Frank Wing, Senior RT Heinrik St. Joseph, Junior RB Randolph Huckleby
Cheonju Korean Institute: Junior DT Reeka Solphim, Senior QB San Coreen, Freshman WR Kim Jung-Beom
Crix Technical High School: Senior QB Jack Niles, Freshman TE Rudy Gallagher
Crix Arts Institute: Senior HB Ren Gyung, Sophmore OT Pine Rhucks
Cheonju High School: Freshman RB Keenan Judson
Lorentine Central High School: Junior MLB Lars Benny

The Rundown:
Long live the... Chameleons? Crix Technical made it to the District Playoffs before falling short. Jack Niles was a deep pocket passer, and with new receiving TE Rudy Gallagher, they'll be looking for the repeat. Unfortunately, Frank Wing is a southpaw, dual-threat Quarterback, and St. Joseph continues to be the reliable blindside blocker. Randolph Huckleby rounds out a very sound offense that is lacking a defensive counterpart - which is where the Red Devils come in. San Coreen, their mobile passer, has Kim Jung-Beom to throw to now - with Kim being a big-game receiver. Crix Arts Institute has the duo of Ren Gyung, a bruising running back - while Pine Rhucks paves the way, while Cheonju High School's Keenan Judson is one of the most intriguing receiving prospects of the of the backfield. Rounding out the stars of this conference is one Lars Benny, whose growth into an every-down middle linebacker is the only saving grace for the Majestics. The Chameleons will have their hands full dealing with the Wizards and the Red Devils this season.

Coastal District

Wildlife Conference
Predicted Order of Finish:
1. East Rhoni High School Kayaks (#16)
2. Pride Academy Cyclones (#23)
3. Lhor Central High School Flying Jellyfish
4. Rhoni School of Architecture Gradients
5. Anderson H. Kim High School Chimera
6. Harbour High School Shipmen

Star Players
East Rhoni High School: Senior QB Evan Jerome, Junior WR Peter Langloir, Sophomore C Nevin Ilstead
Pride Academy: Senior QB Mikkela Ansolli, Sophomore HB Mina Dillon, Sophomore OLB Cana Hickonn
Lhor Central High School: Senior OLB Aurana Mikel, Junior CB Karen Michaelangelo
Rhoni School of Architecture: Senior MLB Riley Este, Sophomore FS Yila Groning
Anderson H. Kim High School: Sophomore MLB Lilac Ember
Harbour High School: Junior QB Evan Hill

The Rundown:
East Rhoni returned things to normal last season - before losing in the District Playoffs. Evan Jerome has blossomed to be a dual-threat, with Peter Langloif the possession-based security blanket; Nevin Ilstead leads the way in blocking. Pride Academy has Mikkela Ansoli, the pocket passer who is trying to make underclassmen work for her attack, alongside the speedy back Mina Dillon. Cana Hickonn on the defensive side will try to get after the Quarterback. Lhor Central still have Aurana Mikel, who can cover and blitz off the edge, and Karen Michaelangelo is a rangy corner who can be a ballhawk. The Gradients of Rhoni School of Architecture will also field a good defensive team - Riley Este has solid fundamentals and Yila Groning can cover almost any slot receiver - but both the Gradients and the Flying Jellyfish don't have many offensive weapons. Rounding out the conference are Lilac Ember's Chimera - another defense-first side - and Evan Hill, a shotgun-style Quarterback who is having to do everything on his own.

Aqua Conference
Predicted Order of Finish:
1. J. H. Yadasky High School Heroes (#5)
2. West Rhoni High School Warhawks (#22)
3. Coastal Academy of the Arts Sculptures
4. City of Larhai High School Rush
5. Compass Coastal Academy Cartographers
6. Coast Guard High School Guards

Star Players
J. H. Yadasky High School: Sophomore QB Cade Stases, Senior RB Isaiah Candy, Junior SS Heinrik Dessler, Junior WR Dustin Perreault, Senior P Gyman Harolos
West Rhoni High School: Junior QB Suki Yoshito, Senior WR Amos Pickard, Senior MLB Lyn Dairon
Coastal Academy of the Arts: Junior QB Hudson Charles, Freshman WR Kevin Burr
City of Larhai High School: Senior TE Clint Dawson, Sophomore OG Jim Hudson
Compass Coastal Academy: Senior SS Trila Wassok
Coast Guard High School: Senior DT Gerry Hawthorne

The Rundown:
Why are the Heroes still the favorites? Cade Stases has quick feet and a rocket arm, while Isaiah Candy provides plenty of carries from the backfield - and Stases has a target in Dustin Perreault, the rangy receiver; Heinrik Dessler has become a really good coverage safety, and if they need him, Gyman Harolos is the best punter of the Senior class. As for the Warhawks, Suki Yoshito with a decent arm can keep them in games, but she isn't very accurate beyond forty yards down the field. Amos Pickard has had to adapt to catching intermediate passes and running, which he can do. Lyn Dairon is the best player of their defense - a hybrid player that can handle it all. Hudson Charles is a serviceable, reliable passer for the Sculptures, with a new find in Kevin Burr, a speedster, while the Rush enjoy the presence of Clint Dawson, good for eight catches a game - while having Jim Hudson as a great guard. The Cartographers are retooling, but still enjoy the presence of Trila Wassok, a ball hawk, while Gerry Hawthorne is the space-eating machine up the middle for the Guards - a diamond in the rough.

Postby Nagarythe » Mon Feb 27, 2023 11:17 pm

Once upon a time the Kingdom of Nagarythe was the dominant kingdom of the continent of Althion, where the High King of all the elves of the continent held court. It was here that the great fortress citadel of Altiroc was razed, the envy of all the other elven kingdoms on the continent and the place where the High King held his court. The first High King was Atheron of house Timornic and he is the most revered man in the entire history of the continent of Althion, having raised the fortress capital and making Nagarythe have the splendor that had it the greatest of all elven kingdoms, why he was anointed as the first High King of Althion, and served as the first guardian of the light. It is this historic king and the splendor of the original Kingdom of Nagarythe that the Shadow King has spent the last several centuries to replicate, to restore Nagarythe back to the glory that it once held and not what it has become over the course of time and all of the tragedies that have befallen her and those who had made the kingdom their home under the protection of Atheron.

Atheron did not start out as the High King, Nagarythe did not start out as the most prestigious kingdom across all of Althion, and her people were not seen with distrust and fear from the rest of the continent as they are now. In the beginning Atheron was merely a prince inside the lands of Nagarythe and had no ambitions of what would eventually come to pass. He would rise to the throne of Nagarythe amidst a period of great turmoil, as the continent was being attacked by a massive demon force that looked like it might overrun the defenders of Nagarythe. These demons had designs to take the continent for their own, perhaps even the entire world if they were able to defeat the elven kingdoms of Althion. Before this invasion by the demonic forces, Althion had never known warfare before, they had been living in an age of elongated peace, and her warriors were not skilled or taught in the ways of warfare. The spears, bows, and axes that the elves had to hunt, gather, and personal honor duels were no match for the thick armor of the demonic horde and the defenders could do nothing but retreat from the war host.

A shattered people who had no concept of the war that was brought to their lands had to hide themselves among the forests and hills of the land, watching helplessly as ancient groves were defiled, put to the torch, or chopped down for use by the advancing tide. Prayers were sent up to the gods of the elves, but the gods either decided or could not help a people who could not help themselves. If the elves were going to stop the advancing tide from flowing across the continent, then they were going to have to learn to fight and have a champion or leader emerge from their own ranks. Atheron had traveled the world during his time as a prince and he had seen weapons and armors crafted of the sort of quality that would be able to combat the demonic horde and give his people a fighting chance against their aggressors. Near the temple of Amanrythe, where a large amount of the scattered elves had assembled, Atheron sought out craftsmiths to forge the tools that the elves would need. The first of these would be a hefty spear offered to Atheron himself, which he paired with a helm and a large shield.

Outside the temple, the demonic horde had found their way to where the scattered elves had sought shelter and were looking for a decisive victory against the elves of Nagarythe to solidify their foothold on the continent and give them a bastion to launch their invasion against the rest of the elves. Atheron stepped outside the temple and threw down his spear in front of him, challenging the demonic lord who was leading the host to one on one combat, which the confident commander was more than happy to oblige, believing that the elf had no means of punching through the armor after so many failed attempts thus far in the invasion. He could not have known that Atheron had had the craftsmiths having created actual weapons of war and a throw of his spear not just pierced through the armor of the commander but also went through the beast and pieced the head of the demon behind him. More and more elves emerged from the temple with freshly crafted armor and weapons, causing the suddenly leaderless army to have to withdraw from the field, the first victory for the elves in the war.

Valanora Times
Back In The Saddle

Vanorian schools took the NSCF 27th cycle off, as a result all of their foreign born players either graduated from the schools or had been released from their scholarship offers for gridiron. Even some of the Vanorian born recruits who had committed to the schools during the last NSCF season also chose to explore their options elsewhere, a rare instance where scholars are not forced to see out their commitment through the end of their degrees. However it was an exceptional circumstance that in turn required a bit of a different touch and solution to the problem than what would have been the norm for the universities. This leaves both the Raiders and the Rockets quite a bit more behind the eight ball heading into their reentry back into the tournament, such as neither of the Vanorian universities are favorites to win the Zephyr conference as they prepare for the upcoming season. However a change in format means that they will not necessarily need to be at their best to take the conference title and the playoff berth, however the challenge of the rest of the conference has only gotten stiffer in the season that the Empire schools skipped. For now, we bring you the preseason power rankings!

5. Northern Moravica (Banija) - Celestia
It would not be the NSCF without a school from Banija being among the best teams in the competition and that looks to be the same this edition of the tournament. The Cougars are perhaps in the most competitive of the conferences with lots of competition for the championship, but they look to have the inside track towards getting to the conference title game and would be the favorites based on the eye test. Can they actually play up to that potential against their rivals in the Blue Thunder and the rest of the Celestia or will they be one of the many teams who look good on paper but them fail to deliver the goods when it actually comes to playing on the field?

4. Felswyr State (Chromatika) - Horizon
The former champions and the road warriors have more than proven their quality in the seasons since they have first entered the tournament. In an ironic twist, FSU is a team that if you wish to defeat then you have the best odds of actually doing that in Chromatika, as they seem to have one of the worst home advantages ever seen from an elite program. Yet on the flip side, their way of playing the game means that they have proven almost impossible to beat on the road thanks to how well their style of play actually travels. Their half of the Horizon seems awfully stacked compared to the other half, meaning whoever emerges from that half likely is going to win their conference and probably will see two or three teams from the same division in the playoffs.

3. Staramara Tech (Chromatika) - Horizon
This is probably a little controversial, but Starmara has built themselves into an elite level program that was in the title game of the last edition of the NSCF. Their emergence as an elite program is one of the reasons why the Horizon is such a difficult conference to try and navigate but the Lava were able to do it once and have to then be the favorites to do it once more. Will they have that championship game hangover or will they be able to build upon that performance and make yet another deep run into the playoffs as the proverbial favorite?

2. Cold Hill (Ranoria) - Big Eight
The Buffalo have been among the elite in the NSCF for nearly as long as the Vanorian schools have been competing in the tournament, having entered shortly after the Empire schools did, originally in the same conference as the Vanorian pair of universities. The Big Eight might not be the same conference as it used to be in levels of competitiveness, but that in turn does make the pathway to the playoffs all that much clearer for a team that seems stacked in nearly all positions. What they have to overcome though is the team in the number one position in their same division, which makes the task all that much more difficult, because it is

1. Richardson (Ranoria) - Big Eight
The holders of the tournament and Cold Hill's fellow Ranoria based school. Of course the number one team has to be the champions, they earned that right by winning the previous tournament and get the challenge now of having to defend that title with a huge target on their back. Yet this is not the first rodeo for Richardson and they are well prepared for the task that is ahead of them. They have the same issue as Cold Hill, besides each other, the Big Eight does not on paper have a lot of competition for them to truly to test themselves against and will not get a real gage of how good they are until they hit the out of conference games. Few enough teams are able to win the championship and then are able to retain that, can the Buffalo break that trend and actually lift the trophy in back to back editions?

+ Drawkian culture requires that most students study for 5 years for an average bachelor's degree.
Previously, players were noted as "+Senior" or "super seniors" if they were in their final year.
That was confusing some people, so now it's shifted to where Seniors are in their final year, etc.
There is now a class under Freshman, noted as "Novatim". All first-year players are called this.

My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:
Choose my Scorers: Yes.
Choose Scoring Events: Yes.
Godmod Scoring Events: Yes.
RP Injuries to my Players: Yes.
Godmod Injuries to my Players: Non-career ending, TG is appreciated.
Godmod Other Events: Yes.
Honestly, just don't destroy my organization. Have fun making a funny or quirky game occur. I will certainly enjoy anything you throw my way.
Style Modifier: +4

Like all Drawkians, especially international caliber ones, Sadeg State's players are a top notch group with much to offer skill-wise. The offense primarily operates out of the shotgun with a back lining up alongside the QB, but the most common under-center formation has to be the I. The pistol make a common appearance, and don't be surprised to see a Wildcat every once in awhile. The run/pass split is around a 55/45, but with Brand Manlio's preferred QB recruits, don't be surprised to see many designed passes ending up in scrambles for big chunks of yards. Drag routes, slants, mid-distance crosses, posts, and corner routes are the most common in SSU's playbook. Runs are often a generic pitch, runs up the gut, or - Coach Manlio's favorite - option plays. SSU is known for having massive talent on the offensive side of the ball, especially in the backfield, but also lining up wide. Watch for tight end passes for huge gains, they're a common target in this scheme.

And while the team is renowned for its offense, you can't discount the defense. Talented shutdown corners and DBs are the hallmark and the pass rush is fantastic, but pass defense in the middle of the field leaves a lot to be desired from the Linebackers. The biggest issue about the Skyhawk's secondary is that they go for the ball too much - while this results in lots of turnovers, a missed pick obviously results in an opposing receiver in the open field. Blitzes sit on top of the playbook at SSU, just like many Drawkian books. Don't expect to run a similar running play twice, the front 7 is likely to come up with a counter blitz on the fly and smack the back for a loss of yards. Man coverage is called about 70/30 versus Zone coverage, another reason why missed interceptions are dangerous. Cover 2 Man coverage with a 4-3 front is the most common play the defense will run.

Special teams is known for its trick plays, but they don't run them as often as, say, the Grid Corps would. The SSU offense would be much more likely to stay out in 4th and under 2 than bring out the special teams for a fake or a regular punt/kick. Speaking of punts/kicks, the return game for the Skyhawks is also fearsome, with massively fast and shifty players returning most balls, not to mention the regularity of laterals during returns (not that they do much of that outside of special teams though). As far as kicking, the punters and kickers kick about as good as, say, college kickers or punters. Nothing special there, although they do err on the side of power over accuracy (good luck praying for a kick 6).

Also, see this dispatch about Drawkian physiology. If you don't want to deal with that though feel free to just handwave or ignore it, it's fine by me.

Bowerstone University 'Bearcats'

Background Info:Bowerstone University is a private university found in the southeastern province of Creegmar; despite the province's mostly rural nature, Bowerstone is one of the most accomplished atheltical programs in the kingdom and because of this over the last decade has cultivated a very prestigious and diverse student body, particularly around it's public sciences, engineering and practical sciences schools. The sprawling 45 acre campus is relatively isolated, the only town within a 30 min drive is Tadown, which has about 28,000 residents and is throughily a college town with most of the city set up to cater to the Bowerstone student-body, who make up a significant portion of the residents due to the modest on-campus accommodations that Bowerstone has. As they return to Zephyr Conference in NSCF 28, athletic director Jordan Keburn is hoping that head coach Michael Derrick will be able to guide the Bearcats to the similar or better success as they have found in the past. Despite their long absence from the competition, they are undoubtedly looking to make a strong return and hopefully qualify for a bowl or playoff appearance.

Stadium: Built five years ago, the massive Drummore Downs is where the Bearcats call home, having replaced their prior Hookfield Stadium. The new stadium is a massive upgrade, capable of seating a theoretical limit of 97,000 participants it will be the first test to see if the University can maintain it's sold-out streak in the larger stadium. Fitted with a partial roof covering over the bowl, a number of LED display boards for scores, stats and broadcasting display, as well as state of the art concourse that features both traditional stadium food, such as hot dogs and nachos, as well as newer age items such as an indoor full size bar, two in fact, a number of shops for team merchandise, and a seafood restaurant. It's located on the southwest corner of University property, directly accessed by the newly constructed Exit 11 on HR18, or through the internal footpath network on the campus grounds.


Coaching Staff:
  • Head Coach: Michael Derrick (On the third year of a six year contract, Male 48)
  • Offensive Coordinator: Kelley Johansen (Male, 52)
  • Defensive Coordinator: Alf Ramsey (Male, 62)
  • Special Teams Coordinator: Virgil York (Male, 58)

Style Modifier:+3
Typical Offensive Strategy: Derrick's NSCF 28 offensive scheme is going to be focused on flexibility, as he tries to use the most of the skills out of the most amount of players; or as some others might call it "win by committee". Despite carrying five quarterbacks, none of have really stood out as a solid star and Derrick has already declared open competition for the starter role, perhaps indicating that we will see multiple starters throughout the competition. Richard Leyton stands as the nominal go-to selection, coming off of a redshirted year last year, as a freshman he was on the last Bowerstone team to appear in the NSCF, but did little to impress in the domestic competitions since. Derrick's usual offensive strategy revolves around a zone run-oriented playbook, and with the unusual speed his starting fullback Lyle St John possesses, it's very sensible to think most of Bowerstone's offense will come from the ground. Expect to see the fullbacks feature alot, used as blockers, ends, or ballcarriers.

Style Modifier: +5

Similar to Sadeg State and other Drawkian teams that play on an international level, Cavsar University's roster has a lot to offer skill-wise. As far as tactics are concerned, Scott Linhart is an extremely balls-out style coach deserving of a +5 modifier. The spread offense is utilized most often, prioritizing space and the open field for the skill position players. Linhart exclusively recruits mobile quarterbacks, as he expects QBs to make plays with their feet (either designed or on the fly). Running backs are more likely to be quicker, lither guys than big bruisers, but there's usually one that can pack a punch if necessary (often the fullback). Vertical passing plays are quite common, and it's rare for passes to go to the flat or right past the line of scrimmage. Sadeg State is known for aiming at tight ends often, but Cavsar leans on them heavily. Thankfully, they nearly always net a Top 5 TE prospect every time they go for one, so it's not much of a weakness. The receivers, as you might guess, are quick and agile, but perhaps falter when it comes to catching in deep traffic. The playbook is probably 65/35 pass/rush, with shotgun formations being a vast majority of what you'll see.

The Cavsar defense is not known for being bruisers, save for the D-line. You can say that the Cavsar defense or secondary is their biggest weak spot, but their defensive line is always extremely exceptional. It's not uncommon for every starter on the D-line to come away with 1+ sacks on the game each. The secondary can leave some things to be desired, but they're good enough to keep the passing game at bay to allow the D-line to really work their magic. Like Sadeg State and many Drawkian defenses, man defense is often the default and will be what to expect. If you can beat man coverage, you'll have a way easier time against Cavsar, but don't count it as a win just yet. They probably blitz a little less than SSU, but they will still pepper them in often. After all, the D-line usually keeps the pressure happening just on their normal scheme. The defense defaults to nickel coverage most often, but any formation with 4 D-linemen can be expected.

The CavU special teams are not renowned for a lot of trickeration, but you'll see something special every once in awhile. However, they are absolutely aggressive on 4th down, and will usually keep the offense on the field if it's under 3rd and 5. Also, the Gladiators go for two every time, and I mean every time, unless it's a late game situation where a PAT is specifically necessary to preserve or make a win. The punters and kickers don't get a whole lot of work, but the return game is something to fear as well. The blocking is very solid and the quick shifty returners can make a lot happen in the blink of an eye. As far as kicking, the punters and kickers kick about as good as, say, college kickers or punters. Nothing special there, although they do err on the side of power over accuracy thanks to those long Drawkian legs.

Speaking of which, see this dispatch about Drawkian physiology. If you don't want to deal with that though feel free to just handwave or ignore it, it's fine by me.

Coaching staff:

Head coach:
Addo Uster (Banija), 49
The young coordinator spent a few years being the linebackers coach for the Lwanga Rhinos in the GFLB, before ascending to run the Banijan national team defense at World Bowl XL & XLI. Running a 3-4 defense that meshed with Ranorian HC Thomas Hall, Hall brought him on because he thought Uster would be a great culture fit. A promising GFLB career that was cut short by an ACL tear at age 25, and then a MCL tear on the same knee at age 27, he brings with him a ferocious intensity and a high amount of energy. He values man to man physical defense, and getting pressure on the quarterback. He is known to be a very aggressive playcaller. After coordinating elite defenses under a defensive minded head coach at the last two World Bowls, he took the reigns as a head man his very first time at Elephant Valley University.
Unfortunately for him, he hasn’t been able to see much success so far with the Red Elephants, playing to a 24-30 record thus far, including zero bowl game wins or playoff appearances, while also routinely getting bullied around by NMU and ULI. The previous season saw him on the verge of losing his job after an 1-4 start, but a key home wins against NMU, taking the Sally Trophy for the first time on attempt eight, as well as sweeping the Egrets saved his job. His seat remains quite hot, however; the excuse of his difficult schedule every year will only save him for so long.

OFFENSE (starters in bold)

Strengths: Receiving group, O-Line
Weaknesses: QB depth, Running Back
Style: Pass-heavy, single back


QB1: #11 Rico Divalles (Chromatika) (Freshman) Major: Photography
QB2: #18 Charlotte Butler (Freshman) Major: Accounting
QB3: #3 Andrew Guerrero (Freshman) Major: Sports Management
Following the graduation of Jacob Herron, it’s time for a new quarterback to take the reigns. With the rest of the Quarterbacks also moving on, the hopes of the team rest on freshman Rico Divalles. The Chromatik from Brisara has limited top-tier upside, but certainly a high floor, having been great at Brisara Trade at limiting interceptions and mistakes. He’s stepping into a pretty good situation with an experienced receiving corps and a solid O-Line, which should allow him to play in structure with ease. However, the Photography major is the only reasonably decent Quarterback on the roster – should he go down with injury or turn out to not be good, the Red Elephants will be in deep trouble.

Running Backs:
RB1: #1 Nancy Franco (Kohnhead) (Sophomore) Major: Sports Management
RB2: #34 Henry Carter (Sophomore) Major: Law and Justice
RB3: #19 David Pathan (Freshman) Major: Political Science
Since Gauge Lawson graduated and moved on to the Berlin Snow Bears, the Red Elephants have struggled to find consistency at running back. Nancy Franco is definitely serviceable, but she tends to be better in short yardage situations, and isn’t the true alpha running back Lawson was. The depth here is also nothing to rely on. Franco struggled in her freshman year, and with a young QB that undoubtedly will want to lean on her at times, she needs to step things up.

Tight Ends:
TE1: #81 Amara Pond (Chromatika) (Senior) Major: Business
TE2: #17 Dex van Vliet (The Licentian Isles) (Senior) Major: History
TE3: #32 Luke Bailey (Hannasea) (Freshman) Major: Criminal Justice
The Tight End room is pretty good for the Red Elephants, offering very solid versatility. Amara Pond will get the vast majority of snaps, with the Chromatik senior improving year by year in both blocking and receiving, making her tough to reliably defend. In addition, EVU has van Vliet, a Licentian former rugby player who’s definitely more of a blocker, and young freshman Luke Bailey from Hannasea, who has surprisingly decent hands. Behind the two seniors, Bailey is likely to be able to focus on his degree in year one; but he could step into a much bigger role as a sophomore.

Wide Receiver:
WR1: #14 Gabriel Yafet (Banija) (Senior) Major: International Marketing
WR2: #5 RJ Hall (Ranoria) (Junior) Major: Sports Management
WR3: #8 Samajae Dallas (Ranoria) (Sophomore) Major: Physics
WR4: #25 Jude Matusevitch (Ha'Yarok) (Senior) Major: Architecture
WR5: #83 Etan Gadi (Ha'Yarok) (Sophomore) Major: Sports Management
WR6: #87 Victoire Wilkinson (Junior) Major: Political Science
The wide receiver room is where most of the magic happens, with this being defeinitely the strong point of the Red Elephants, able to beat you in lots of different ways.
First is Gabriel Yafet, with the Banijan heading into his final year. Despite a pretty bad surrounding cast, he has proven to be a superstar at the position, dominating with size and speed. The senior with the extravagant touchdown celebrations will likely be the #1 target for Divalles, who will appreciate having a reliable target that can win 50/50 balls.
Second is RJ Hall, Ranorian junior. At this point, he’s better known for his baseball skills, as the two-sport athlete is rolling with the Red Elephants in the Big 14 of South Newlandian college baseball. Nevertheless, his gridiron skills are nothing to discount. He’s a very reliable route runner with good hands, but is also tall enough to win at the sidelines. Baseball fans will cringe whenever he takes a hit, though.
Introduced last season was Samajae Dallas. The Ranorian is the ultimate mismatch problem. He was recruited as a Tight End, but is now listed as a wideout – a very tall and heavy Wideout, that is. Difficult to tackle in space and with good receiving skills, he’s extremely tough to defend, with a lot of linebackers too slow and a lot of corners too small. He’s going to be another powerful weapon to the arsenal of Divalles.
The team also features a pair of options from Ha’Yarok, with two very speed-focused option in Matusevitch and Gadi; Matusevitch has the slightly faster top speed, while Gadi tends to be a bit more elusive. Both of them are gadget players, especially for deep shots, with both of them having good hands.

Offensive Line:
LT1: #78 Ran Gomez (Chromatika) (Junior) Major: Accounting
LG1: #77 Aaron Jameson (Chromatika) (Junior) Major: Sports Psychology
C1: #74 Emmanuel Santos (Chromatika) (Sophomore) Major: Mechanical Engineering
RG1: #72 Ajark-Zenon Guv (Qusmo) (Senior) Major: Business
RT1: #53 Georgine Pine (Chromatika) (Senior) Major: Architecture
C2: #52 Carla Vogel (Sophomore) Major: History
OG3: #66 Daniel Jones (Sophomore) Major: Social Work
OG4: #55 Brandon Hill (Sophomore) Major: Political Science
OT3: #60 Elio Schubert (Sophomore) Major: Sports Management
OT4: #71 Bruno Delgado (Sophomore) Major: Accounting
The Offensive Line is another strong point for the Red Elephants. Left Tackle Ran Gomez has been a great starter for EVU in his first two seasons, and had been a great blindside protector for Herron.
Moving inside, Jameson is a great run blocker, best used as a pulling guard, carrying blocks to the second level to set up huge stretch runs that can leave the defense winded.
Center Santos, another Chromatik, is rapidly becoming a great leader for the O-Line, an excellent pass protector and great play recogniser. As a sophomore, he is actually the youngest starter on this offensive line that has a lot of experience playing together.
If there’s a weakness on this Line, it is Right Guard Ajark-Zenon. The senior from Qusmo is a pretty average pass protector and decent run blocker, but not much more than that. You’re not likely to see too many highlights here, if you notice the Business major on the field at all.
Right Tackle Georgine Pine, meanwhile, is a rock at her position. She excels as a run blocker, able to create push with ease, and she’s become a great pass protector too. The two tackles are definitely the crucial part for the success of the Offensive Line.
One major weakness for the Line is the complete absence of any remotely decent depth. If and when players go down, they will leave largely unpluggable holes. How healthy this main group can stay is going to be the major determinator for how good this Offensive Line performs towards the end of the season.

DEFENSE (starters in bold)

Strengths: Cornerbacks, Pass Rush
Weaknesses: Inexperienced group
Style: 3-4, bend but don’t break

Defensive Ends:
LE1: #96 Kyra Bones (Chromatika) (Freshman) Major: Linguistics
LE2: #65 Finn Rogers (Hannasea) (Junior) Major: Accounting
RE1: #61 Cody Hartman (Kohnhead) (Senior) Major: Business
RE2: #98 Isaac Ferrer (Junior) Major: Law and Justice
Cody Hartman is one of the most experienced players on this very inexperienced defense that features 6 freshman starters. The Kohnheadian senior is paired with Kyra Bones, who was a fantastic pass rusher in Lhor thanks to her quick first step. Behind them, EVU features a decent third option in Hannasean Finn Rogers, who is also a slightly better run stopper.

Nose Tackles:
NT1: #95 Deandre Kelly (Ranoria) (Senior) Major: Sports Management
NT2: #97 Dominick Ford (Senior) Major: Architecture
NT3: #76 Christopher Shaw (Junior) Major: Law and Justice
Deandre Kelly has been a staple of this defense. The Ranorian is a consatant threat to get into the backfield, with the towering senior also great at shedding blocks and blowing up runs before they get far. He’s also going to be one of the players on the roster leading the team with experience.

Outside Linebackers:
LOLB1: #45 Margaret Hines (Chromatika) (Freshman) Major: Pharmaceutical Sciences
LOLB2: #90 Christian Baumann (Senior) Major: Social Work
ROLB1: #38 Felix Krause (Ranoria) (Freshman) Major: Sports and Exercise
ROLB2: #58 Whitney Coons (Sophomore) Major: History
The Red Elephants will have two freshman starting at Outside Linebacker, with the Chromatik Hines excelling as a pass rusher while being less of an asset in coverage. Opposite of her, there’s Felix Krause, Ranorian younger brother of his teammate at Inside Linebacker. Felix Krause is one of the least experienced players on the field, but offers some great raw upside – like Hines, he’ll be a better pass rusher.

Inside Linebackers:
ILB1: #4 Nancy Jackson-Jones (Chromatika) (Freshman) Major: Statistics
ILB2: #99 Geralt Krause (Ranoria) (Junior) Major: Sports Management
ILB3: #28 Leo Perri (Sophomore) Major: Accounting
ILB4: #40 Andrew Bailey (Senior) Major: Law and Justice
ILB5: #30 Kilian Winter (Freshman) Major: Accounting
Inside, the team features Geralt Krause, bigger brother of OLB Felix. He’s going to be one of the leaders for the team, a sure-handed tackler that is pretty good at coverage for his position. Jackson-Jones, meanwhile, is another freshman starter, with the Statistics major as extremely sure-handed tackler. She’s great at delivering what’s needed, and is a not infrequent threat to get after the Quarterback. Leo Perri is a rare decent backup for this team who could likely step in without a massive drop in results.

CB1: #27 Mustafa Engström (Valanora) (Junior) Major: Legal Studies
CB2: #29 Charles Raleigh (Ranoria) (Senior) Major: Sports and Exercise
CB3: #22 David Patterson (Nova Anglicana) (Junior) Major: Sports Management
CB4: #42 Ryan Garnos (Sanford) (Senior) Major: Physics
CB5: #33 Zachary Walker (Junior) Major: History
Cornerback is one of the biggest strengths of this defense. Mustafa Engström might be the best defensive player on roster, with the towering corner having the size and speed to match up with elite wide receivers. On the opposite side is Charles Raleigh, another player from Ranoria. Raleigh used to play in the slot a lot, but has also shown remarkable upside as a CB2. Behind them, EVU will feature David Patterson of Nova Anglicana, a former rugby player who’s been surprisingly good, and Ryan Garnos in a group with pretty good depth.

SS1: #44 Peter Rundstead (Chromatika) (Freshman) Major: Veterinary Sciences
SS2: #46 Imaad May (Senior) Major: Criminal Justice
FS1: #12 Kim Byung-San (Chromatika) (Freshman) Major: Psychology
FS2: #39 Jeremy Green (SNL/Drawkland) (Senior) Major: Business
The team will be starting two Chromatik freshman at safety, which could turn out to be a problem if either of them struggle. Strong Safety Rundstead is a very versitaile player, and could see play at other positions as well, but with no other good SS on the roster, EVU might have to stick him there. Kim Byung-San, meanwhile, is one of the players with high upside joining the team. He’s great in coverage or as a spy, while being able to minimise mistakes.


K: #15 Lance Killiks (Chromatika) (Freshman) Major: Music Performance
Killiks will be disappointed by the bland Elephant Valley nightlife, but he’s a Chromatik, he should be able to get the ball between the uprights.

P: #10 Iwo Sienko (Dod Rava) (Freshman) Major: Sports and Exercise
Iwo Sienko is a freshman joining from the Dod Rava, one of the Esportivan starters on the team. He should be a serviceable punter with little to worry about.

K/P: #16 Jiana Molla (Freshman) Major: Law and Justice

Kick Returner:
WR4: #25 Jude Matusevitch (Ha'Yarok)

Punt Returner:
WR5: #83 Etan Gadi (Ha'Yarok)

Long snapper:
C2: #52 Carla Vogel

QB3: #3 Andrew Guerrero

Coaching staff:

Head coach:
Walker Sparks (Kohnhead)
Sparks used to coach the national team of Kohnhead, but was fired after a couple seasons of failing to break through. The usually offensive-minded, pass-heavy coach will have to adjust to a major change of pace, not only switching to college football, but also in playstyle. The Egrets’ style is partially moulded by their playing conditions – the Jungledrom is exposed to the elements, and with frequent rain in Ratzupalfu, trying to pass in Ratzupalfu can be a tricky endeavour. Under him, the Egrets have arguably overtaken the Red Elephants as the better footballing college in South Newlandia. They had a remarkable 7-win season in the Celestia in their second year, before crashing out of the playoff picture, and followed that up with a 3-win season in the Celestia. They still won bowl games in both seasons. Recently, there have been some rumours about Sparks potentially leaving the program for reasons unrelated to performance on the field.

OFFENSE (starters in bold)

Strengths: Run Game, O-Line
Weaknesses: Unproven passing game
Style: Run-heavy, control possession


QB1: #7 Kasozi Wampona (Banija) (Freshman) Major: Sociology
QB2: #11 Steve Brenoir (Chromatika) (Sophomore) Major: Molecular Biology
QB3: #4 Kilian Knight (Senior) Major: Elephantology
The Egrets have recruited Kasozi Wampona to be their new starter. The highly touted Banijan prospect is not only tall and fast, but also highly accurate in the short game. While he doesn’t have a great deep ball, that shouldn’t really be an issue in rainy Ratzupalfu, and Wampona might even be able to be good in the designed run game. Additionally, he is stepping into a pretty good surrounding cast considering it’s a South Newlandian team. Additionally, the Egrets have a fantastic backup in Chromatik Steve Brenoir, who can step in for Wampona if needed. Brenoir is, in many ways, a pretty similar player to Wampona, although he is working with a slightly smaller frame, and isn’t as valuable in the designed run game or as a scrambler. Still, he should be one of the better backups available.

Running Backs:
RB1: #8 Zamandi Ayana (Banija) (Senior) Major: Public Health
RB2: #2 Thomas Fantikos (Senior) Major: Law
RB3: #24 Randi Devi (Sophomore) Major: Education
The offense of the Egrets has pretty much always ran through Ayana. The former top recruit is a big, powerful back, and if he doesn’t get much going, the offense usually stays silent – the limited Egrets passing usually comes off play action, set up by the run game.
Fantikos is a pretty good alternative option. While the Newlandian in less powerful and smaller than Ayana, he is quite the elusive player, and never an easy tackle.
No one in this group is particularly useful as a pass-catcher, however, which could be a weakness.

FB1: #5 Calum Bruce (The Licentian Isles) (Senior) Major: Chemistry
FB2: #80 Al Lund (Sanford) (Senior) Major: Communications
Bruce, a former Rugby player, has turned out to be an excellent fullback for the Egrets, able to clear space thanks to his mountainous build. The Licentian senior will see a decent chunk of snaps, with the Egrets usually lining up with two in the backfield.

Tight Ends:
TE1: #36 Evelyn Barristan (Chromatika) (Senior) Major: Journalism
TE2: #83 Sandra Hillock (Chromatika) (Junior) Major: Journalism
TE3: #38 Jacopo Conti (Sophomore) Major: Biology
The Tight End room is mostly filled with great run blockers, although especially Barristan can also get her hands on the ball in a pinch. Hillock, meanwhile, is an almost pure run blocker. Given the Egrets playbook, this makes sense.

Wide Receiver:
WR1: #87 Jeremy Jefferson (Chromatika) (Senior) Major: Zoology
WR2: #33 Romeo Carl (Chromatika) (Freshman) Major: Geology
WR3: #6 Lukasz Matusz (Delaclava) (Senior) Major: Geopolitics
WR4: #11 Nicole Irvine (Kohnhead) (Senior) Major: Communications
WR5: #28 Dominik Pleasants () (Senior) Major: Agriculture
The Wide Receiver room is stacked as well, with Zoology major Jefferson, who has decent quickness off the line but struggles with drops and just missed the top-25 recruits list as WR1. He scored 4 touchdowns as a freshman anyway. Nicole Irvine, #7 recruit from Kohnhead, is a slot receiver who was the best route runner in the nation last season almost always getting separation. Irvine doesn't have the size to play on the outside and her speed is something in the 4.4 area of a bit below giving her the ability to go deep often but not be a true burner. She will be the second WR, and moved to the slot on occasion; the Egrets hope for her to do the best she can despite being undersized. In her first year, she proved to be able to do this, scoring 2 touchdowns. Delaclavan Lukasz Matusz rounds out the group; he’s flamboyant and confident wideout with a flair for the one-handed and diving grabs. He’s also really fast.
The wide receiver room is filled with mostly a bunch of seniors, which surely can’t go poorly by next years time. Jefferson is the top receiver, having established himself in his three previous years. While he’s fast off the line, he sometimes struggles with drops and isn’t as good of a blocker as the Egrets would like.
The number two will be freshman Romeo Carl, who was a very reliable target in high school. He’s especially good after the catch, and might get a couple handoffs in motion, too. The tall, strong wideout should also be a very serviceable run blocker.
Within the depth, the Egrets have Matusz from Delaclava, who is very fast and flamboyant, and Kohnheadian Irvine, who’s an excellent route runner and most likely wideout from the slot. Usually, the Egrets will only play two wide receivers at a time.

Offensive Line:
LT1: #55 Justin Doran (Chromatika) (Senior) Major: Electrical Engineering
LG1: #65 Lalo Pulefaasisina (Graintfjaller Multinesia) (Senior) Major: Film Studies
C1: #71 Hang Kyung-Jyuk (Chromatika) (Freshman) Major: Media Relations
RG1: #60 Christian Eyre (Delaclava) (Senior) Major: Fisheries and Wildlife
RT1: #69 Fang Minerick (Chromatika) (Sophomore) Major: Linguistics
C2: #76 Ozi Lasker (Ha'Yarok) (Junior) Major: Public Health
OG3: #53 Nyameko Ntlokwana (Mlima Kijani) (Senior) Major: Law
OG4: #52 Damian Val (Dod Rava) (Freshman) Major: Biology
OT3: #70 Dennis Serra (Freshman) Major: Elephantology
OT4: #78 Muhammed Vogel (Freshman) Major: Biology
This is a very good O-Line, certainly one of the biggest assets to the Egrets. Left Tackle Doran is a highly physical player who’ll end up where he’s needed. The Chromatik has established himself as secure pass protector and a great run blocker to clear lanes. Left Guard Pulefaasisina, a senior as well to provide excellent blindside protection, is a pretty good run blocker as well. Center Hang is the new arrival to the group, playing as a freshman, an absolute tower of a man who’ll make life hard for defensive lineman. Given his size, he should have no trouble playing against older opponents. At Right Guard, the team has Eyre, a Delaclav senior. He’s arranged himself with playing in South Newlandia, though he is excited to return home after his college career. On the field, he’s a great run blocker especially. Last in the starting lineup, there’s Fang Minerick in year two, unarguably the best pass protector of the group. He might slide into Left Tackle next season.
There’s pretty good depth here, too, though mostly on the interior. Lasker is a good backup who will allow Hang to not overwork himself. Ntlokwana is a great pass protector, rarely getting beat, and Damian Val oozes talent and could easily find himself starting next season.
That depth, unfortunately, does not extend to the Tackles. Minerick or Doran going down could seriously jeopardise this group.

DEFENSE (starters in bold)

Strengths: Linebackers
Weaknesses: the rest is kinda meh
Style: Stuff the run or get after the QB

Defensive Ends:
LE1: #90 Rafal Duda (Dod Rava) (Freshman ) Major: Environmental Science
LE2: #56 Aadi Price (Sophomore) Major: Biology
RE1: #59 Mpoza Kanya (Banija) (Sophomore) Major: Education
RE2: #68 Vincent Hunt (Sophomore) Major: Agriculture
At Defensive End, the Egrets have a pair of young, inexperienced players. Rafal Duda is a player with great upside, especially when rushing the passer, while Mpoza Kanya struggled as a freshman. The Banijan seemed to be frequently distracted, but he still has sky-high potential and athletic upside, as well as a great work ethic that should allow him to get back on track.

Defensive Tackles:
DT1: #54 Otoln-Sevet Guv (Qusmo) (Senior) Major: Education
DT2: #99 Mack Honnack (Chromatika) (Sophomore) Major: Computer Science Engineering
DT3: #58 Kadaris Warren (Hannasea) (Junior) Major: Environmental Science
DT4: #94 Fatima Reyes (Freshman ) Major: Elephantology
The consistent, hard-nosed Otoln-Sevet may be the listed DT1, but since last season, Matt Honnack has been running the show. For a DT, he’s already excellent at going after the quarterback, and his abilities allow it to be possible to even move the DE if he’s absolutely needed there. Warren, meanwhile, is going to another player in the depth chart turning in decent snaps when needed.

Outside Linebackers:
LOLB1: #93 Edith St. Clair (Chromatika) (Senior) Major: Environmental Science
LOLB2: #41 Glenda Kelly (Senior) Major: Education
ROLB1: #48 Karry Pleimoor (Chromatika) (Sophomore) Major: Statistics
ROLB2: #50 Victoria Fischer (Sophomore) Major: Agriculture
St. Clair is a pretty good blitzing linebacker who is best used going after the QB or RB in the backfield and not a very good coverage backer. She’s been a dominant force as a pass rushger and is likely the best defensive player on the roster. Pleimoor is less experienced, but very well-rounded already. A true homing missile, she’ll be making tackles all over the field.

Middle Linebackers:
MLB1: #49 Nellie Griffin (Chromatika) (Junior) Major: Forensic Sciences
MLB2: #43 Milor-Kynda Roz (Qusmo) (Senior) Major: Biology
MLB3: #97 Max Wagner (Sophomore) Major: Chemistry
When playing with only a Middle Linebacker, that position becomes the captain of the defense more often than not. Griffin is able to step into that role with ease, being a sure-handed tackler that’ll keep the entire defense together.

CB1: #37 Li Xuen (Chromatika) (Senior) Major: Agriculture
CB2: #30 Desiderata Kelly (Delaclava) (Senior) Major: Meteorology
CB3: #25 KeAndre Lane (Hannasea) (Sophomore) Major: Education
CB4: #42 Gabriel Roberts (Senior) Major: Elephantology
CB5: #44 Lucas Garcia (Junior) Major: Zoology
Li Xuen is an excellent corner able to shut down most of what is thrown at her with her size and speed. Kelly, meanwhile, has not improved as much as the Egrets have hoped, and is now arguably a weak spot in the secondary. Lane is a pretty good slot corner when needed.

SS1: #29 Vralx-Rilan Ump (Qusmo) (Senior) Major: Psychology
SS2: #17 Federica Valentini (Junior) Major: Zoology
FS1: #34 Strongbow Valdez (Delaclava) (Senior) Major: Biology
FS2: #27 Tom Reynolds (Hannasea) (Sophomore) Major: Biology
Vralx-Rilan likes to blitz but can get lost in coverage, a tendency he never really lost. Strongbow Valdez is capable of making spectacular athletic plays, even when he tends to go for risky moves on occasion. Unfortunately, neither of them have developed into stars like the Egrets had hoped. Reynolds is talented, but not really ready for a starting role just yet, so this safety room might end up a bit of a weakness.


K: #1 Kevin Han (Chromatika) (senior) Major: Chemistry
Han struggles with range (anything past 50 is sub-50) but is almost automatic below 40. Has a chance to grow in leg strength over time. Chromatik kickers are basically always very accurate, so this one should be, too.

P: #9 Yelto-Lapij Ivo (Qusmo) (senior) Major: Communications
Ivo has a decent enough leg, even though he isn’t the strongest punter out there; but as a result of being a former QB, he can be a wildcard for the odd trick play.

K/P: #13 Constance Sanchez (Freshman) Major: Fisheries and Wildlife

Kick Returner:
WR3: #6 Lukasz Matusz (Delaclava)

Punt Returner:
WR3: #6 Lukasz Matusz (Delaclava)

Long snapper:
C2: #76 Ozi Lasker (Ha'Yarok)

QB3: #4 Kilian Knight

Are either of the South Newlandian schools making the playoffs this season – a detailed analysis


They are too bad, and their schedules are too tough. Here’s there win projections by win count and likelihood of outcome. I could talk about those more in detail, but I would like to get some rest, actually. I actually did math for these instead of just eyeballing like an idiot

Felswyr State Preview: Odika in Charge as Firehawks Seek Return to Glory

It wasn't a horrible season for Felswyr State. Despite beating Staramara Tech on the final day of the regular season, they lost the Conference title due to the head-to-head point differential by seven points. They then beat Trent State at home, lost to Loyola-Istria on the road, and wrapped up the nonconference slate at home with a win over Kohnhead City, good for a #6 seed going into the playoffs. A tense 29-24 win over Sadeg State at home meant that the Firehawks would face Green City University of TJUN-ia in the Quarterfinals - a rematch of NSCF championship games past.

An overtime loss at Green City University is where the Firehawks' season ended; now, Otto Mitchell and Stan Devlin are gone from the receiving ranks, Julian Watt leaves the line, Nicole Manstrom leaves the edge, and the trio of Magnus Lindhjem, Tara Langlois-Zuluka, and Brianna Oglesby graduate from the defensive secondary. So, why is there hope for optimism in Felswyr State?

Kadesh Odika. The phenom that entered during the Out-of-Conference slate in Freshman year to win a title is now a Junior, and the quick, calm-headed, explosive Quarterback is ready to prove himself. Essa Kayode, the fellow Banijan, start alongside Vince Cartier the speedster and Nero Ramsey, one of the top recruits from Ranoria that can really make a slash. So Kwan-Sun and Kim Bo-Mi remain solid options as well.

Sydney Thomas will tote the ball from the backfield, often times helped by N. B. Vasilievna in front of him, with Anne Holmes to spell.

However, the biggest asset for the Firehawks aside from Odika is their Offensive line. Sure, Watt is gone, but this season, Alexis Coleman, Kassa Essayas, Trenton Herbert, and Markus Xanneret are all Seniors - with Franz Han being the only non-Senior of the bunch, himself being a Junior.

Defensively, Senior Defensive Ends Aubin Rouzet and Sizo Ashenafi stand out amongst a rther green group, though Rolan Monroe will do a decent job from the edge and Reile Jordan patrols the middle. Both starting safeties are new at their job - but along the secondary is Lisa Bonsoon, the best recruit out of Chromatika in the last recruiting class, alongside one Dorothéa Amble, the veteran. This Firehawks defense isn't set to stop the opposition from scoring, but it should at least be able to slow them down, and generate enough turnovers.

More chances to get Odika a chance to score? Yes, please!

This is Odika's team, and as Firehawks fans would say...

Staramara Tech Preview: Lava Embrace Underdog Mentality Despite Run at Title

Nobody expected the Staramara Tech University Lava to rise this early. Sure, they had swept Sarai Gwenderyn during her Senior season, but they'd struggled enough elsewhere. They'd made the playoffs in their second season, but had been handled by Northern Moravica. On their third season?

On their third season, they won the Starlight Division. On their third season, they won their Conference Title game by 65 points. On their third season, they suffered a loss at Saguenay before defeating Northern Moravica and Ratzupalfu at home, good for the #7 seed in the playoffs.

Their first test was containing Anne-Maurice Vivayavich and the University of Loyola-Istria Blue Thunder to seventeen points in the first round of the playoffs. Then, they shut out Baker Park 15-0 on the road - with Lisa Anderson stepping in. They followed that up by holding Green City, the team that had handled Felswyr State, to only ten points - to get to the NSCF Championship game.

Unfortunately, they ran into the only team that had a better defense than them - Richardson. Losing to the Governors 6-7, the Lava closed out their season in second place.

Why is it, then, that Laverna Getz views this Lava squad as underdogs?

Fullback Naomi Erehon. Wide Receiver Layna Cinder. Tight End Oswain Callheart. Offensive Tackle Izaya Hanzo. Offensive Guards Haden Groff and Brandon Nile. Defensive Ends Taniuchi Kai and Armand Portier. Defensive Tackle Gérald Bullion. Outside Linebacker Wakimoto Kaede. Free Safety Rona Candice. Punter Perciel Gilbert. Cornerback Mastaya Vorpen. Thirteen of twenty-two starters have graduated, including icons in Callheart, Groff, Kaede, Portier, Candice, and especially Vorpen.

Haruno Masakazu has won the Quarterback battle, but Liana Anderson has proven she can step in if needed. Gabriele Ziegler will be the receiving back, with Isaga Duhaga being the bruiser, Jameson Akae leading the way. Jacoby Grinner leads multiple Wide Receivers that can actually catch the ball - something that the Lava have never had; Darin Faulkner and Osman Pyatt look good at Tight End. The issue is at the line - where Center Park Si-U have two Juniors and two Sophomores alongside him. Park's leadership will be the key.

On the defensive side, Lucius Agot still exists - and with Maresha Meba alongside him, the linebacker core is something else. Sure, Anira Hoss and Ingrid Gustaffston have not had much playing time, but they are Seniors - and James Dior doesn't miss often.

The Lava have a host of players eager to prove that their #3 ranking isn't a fluke. Can they gel together, though?
