First off, give us a quick summary of your chise up to this point.
First, let me say that I am honored to be selected! I am playing on NCAA 10..simmed the first season and then took off from there. Playing in C-USA means having to claw your way to the BCS, which I have managed to do a couple times. I have won (3) and lost (2) the conference championship games. I earned a couple Fiesta Bowl berths – beat Oklahoma and am about to play Oklahoma State at the end of the 2015 season. No NC game yet, but consistently in the Top 5-15 over the last few seasons. So I played 2011-2015.
What made you choose this team?
I wanted a non-AQ team so that earning a BCS berth was a real achievement. SMU was a really bad team on NCAA in 10, so they were a good pick. Plus, being in Texas meant I would have a good chance of recruiting some talent that didn’t go to the bigger name schools.
What’s your teams strengths and weaknesses?
We can throw all day! My QBs throw INTs, but we throw a lot of TDs and for yardage too. My defense is stifling, and my special teams rival Va Tech in blocking kicks. But for the life of me, despite having 90+ rated HBs, I cannot run to save my life.
Who is your favorite player on your team?
Too many to count. Favorite on defense was OLB Lance Shine who was dominate and earned a seat at the Heisman Award (finished #5, but the invite was cool). On offense, I loved TE Daniel Gilmore. He has speed, hands and could block!
Who has been your best acquisition? (through sign/trade)
I have been happy with a lot of my recruits. One of my favorites was WR Bryan Cunningham. He was a consistent #2 WR – good hands and a heck of a return man. Always relied on him for a critical reception.
Greatest moment in your chise so far
Beating Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl in 2013. Loved giving Bob Stoops another BCS loss!
What other chises do you follow on here?
A bunch…too many to name. And the worst part is that I am bad about making comments in all the franchises/dynasties that I read.
If you could improve/change one thing about DSS, what would it be?
I am pretty happy with DSS. It’s a great place to post and a bunch of good guys who do a great job.
Have any tips for other chisers?
Just enjoy doing it for yourself. Don’t do it for anyone else or you won’t stick with it. I juggle a full time job, wife, 2 kids, and a home…my chising-time is for me, so that’s why I do it. if you do it for yourself, you will enjoy it, keep at it, and others will enjoy the ride to!
