B-Dawg's Western Michigan Broncos: Unfinished bidnezz

UNFINISHED BIDNEZZ
Eight years after bailing,
B-Dawg returns to WMU


KALAMAZOO, Mich. — It should have been one of the most fun Mid-American Conference dynasties ever.

Back in NCAA 2006, B-Dawg rolled with the Western Michigan Broncos in his MaddenMania dynasty. This was no ordinary MAC team. The Broncos’ NCAA 2006 roster included three quality future NFL players in wide receiver Greg Jennings, tight end Tony Scheffler, defensive end and safety Louis Delmas.

There was only one problem with this dynasty: The game itself was a piece of crap!

There are some gamers who called NCAA 2006 the best version of the game ever, but they were obviously smoking crack. The game was a complete abomination, so much so that B-Dawg just abandoned the dynasty in the third season and played Madden 2006 the rest of that season’s gaming cycle.

“I’m an NCAA man first, a Madden man second,” B-Dawg said. “It took a lot for me to put down NCAA in favor of Madden.”

The last straw for B-Dawg game in a 2007 game against Bowling Green. Leading by 21 points in the final minute, Bowling Green heaved a long touchdown pass on third-and-long rather than milk the clock. That play demonstrated two things: The horrible unrealistic playcalling by the CPU in NCAA 2006 (little has changed, come to think of it), plus the ease with which the CPU could complete the deep ball (B-Dawg half-expected it and defended accordingly).

Eight years later, B-Dawg is returning to Kalamazoo to take care of some unfinished bidnezz.

“I always felt like I left the fine folks of Kalamazoo down by abruptly leaving eight years ago,” B-Dawg said. “Now that I have a second chance, I’m going to make the most of it. I just hope NCAA ’14 doesn’t blow! I will have Madden this year as a Plan B.”

Western’s NCAA ’14 roster doesn’t appear to have any future NFL stars, but you never know who is underrated in the video game. The top-rated players are three who are at 80 OVR.

Besides the desire to make up for his abrupt departure eight years ago, B-Dawg chose Western because it is only 72 OVR with a one-star rating, meaning he should have a long rebuilding job on his hands.

Other options were to roll with a weak team in a power conference (Vanderbilt, Colorado, Kansas, Minnesota were options), but B-Dawg wasn’t feeling any of them. He desperately wants to use Boy-Z State in a dynasty, but those Broncos are simply too good.

“I love all of the small milestones along the way,” B-Dawg said. “The first win over a ranked opponent. The first time you crack the top 25. The first four-star and five-star recruits. You get all of that way too soon using a team like Boy-Z State, which is already in the preseason top 25.”

B-Dawg also wasn’t feeling teams like Air Force, UL-Monroe, UTEP or Wyoming, crappy teams that he considered that are in weaker conferences.

“It’s too easy to win in a weak conference right away,” B-Dawg said. “I run that risk with Western Michigan, but I think I’ll enjoy using a Michigan school since I live here.”


B-Dawg’s new home in NCAA ’14 is Waldo Stadium.




PLATFORM: PlayStation 3
ROSTERS: The first set of community rosters from Operation Sports. I replaced a senior wide receiver who hasn’t done much with red-shirt freshman wide receiver Michael Henry, who I watched play in high school.
MODE: All-American mode 4 lyfe, baby!!! Past attempts at Heisman mode were just an exercise in frustration. I kinda suck.
SLIDERS: BYU’s at Operation Sports, with some minor tweaks. These will always be a work in progress. I started playing dynasty games without playing a full game to test anything.
LAST YEAR: 4-8 (2-6 MAC)
PRESTIGE: 1 star
TEAM GRADES: C- OVR, C offense, C- defense, C special teams; 72 OVR, 74 offense, 73 defense
PRESEASON RANKING: No. 85
RECRUITING RULES: I can’t over-recruit. Once I fill my 70-player roster, I can’t continue to recruit, even if I have unfilled needs. I will just have to take a walk-on and cut another recruit. If I over-recruit by mistake (such as needing two players and having three commit), I have to cut from the last group to commit.
CUTS: No cuts from existing roster, unless I find out after starting this dynasty that a player is no longer with Western.
REDSHIRTS: Only true freshmen can be red-shirted. Every effort will be made to prevent "accidental red-shirts" of non-freshmen because they didn't get a stat.
TRANSFERS: If a player wants to transfer, I won't stop him from leaving. We don't want anyone who doesn't want to be here.
PLAYERS LEAVING EARLY: If a player is 95 OVR or higher, I can't try to talk him into staying. If he's 90-94 OVR, I get one week to persuade him to stay. Anyone under 90 OVR, I can do whatever is necessary to keep the player - short of doing a "quit dynasty, don't save." (Note: If I have a special player going for all-time dynasty records, I will put on a full-court press to keep him.)
GAME PLAY: I use “Ask Coach” to keep me from relying on money plays. I pick one of the three plays. Exceptions are for hurry-up situations late in a half, when a game is hopelessly out of reach and I want to call plays that won’t add to the frustration level and when I just need to run the ball to milk the clock. I cannot run the clock below 10 seconds until the final two minutes. I also plan to change playbooks every few seasons to keep from getting too comfortable with the offense.
PLAYBOOK: Multiple offense, multiple defense until I make my own custom playbook.

Re: B-Dawg's Western Michigan Broncos: Unfinished bidnezz



2013
Prestige: 1 star
Grades: C- OVR, C offense, C- defense, C special teams; 72 OVR, 74 offense, 73 defense
Preseason ranking: No. 85
Final ranking: Unranked
Bowl game: Louisiana-Lafayette 45, Western Michigan 35 (Little Caesars Bowl)
Passing leader: Tyler Van Tubbergen 276-for-449, 3,806 yards, 26 TD, 15 int.
Rushing leader: Dareyon Chance 172 carries, 686 yards, 9 TD
Receiving leaders: Jaime Wilson 65 catches, 1,237 yards, 10 TD
Defensive leaders: Desmond Bozeman 87 tackles; Roosevelt Donaldson 21 TFL, 11 sacks; Justin Currie and Donald Celiscar 4 interceptions.
Synopsis: Western struggled out of the gates, going 1-4 on its first five games under coach B-Dawg. A triple-overtime victory at Toledo ignited a six-game winning streak that put the Broncos in a position to earn a berth in the MAC Championship Game. However, they were thoroughly thrashed in a battle for the MAC West title, losing 56-35 to 20th-ranked Northern Illinois. NIU quarterback Jordan Lynch had an epic performance, rushing 17 times for 306 yards and five touchdowns, as B-Dawg learned under no uncertain terms that the CPU read option is on steroids in this game. A season that was going so great ended with a two-game losing streak, as the Broncos also lost their bowl game, 45-35 to Louisiana-Lafayette.

2014
Prestige: 2 stars
Grades: C OVR, C offense, C defense, B- special teams; 74 OVR, 74 offense, 75 defense
Preseason ranking: No. 87
Record: 9-4 (5-3, 3rd place MAC West)
Final ranking: Unranked
Bowl game: Navy 27, Western Michigan 14 (Military Bowl)
Passing leader: Zack Wynn 202-for-339, 2,232 yards, 16 TD, 15 int.
Rushing leader: Fabian Johnson 197 carries, 903 yards, 15 TD
Receiving leaders: Jaime Wilson 86 catches, 1,108 yards, 4 TD; Kendrick Roberts 4 TD
Defensive leaders: Caleb Bailey 87 tackles; Edward Rolle 21 TFL; Roosevelt Donaldson 10 sacks; Donald Celiscar and Jon Henry 3 int.
Synopsis: B-Dawg enjoyed perhaps the most exciting season he’s ever played in any video game. In eight of the first 11 games, Western scored the winning points in the final 1:01 of the fourth quarter or overtime. In six of those games, the Broncos rallied from double-digit deficits. Seven games received ESPN Classic scores. The season began with road victories at Boy-Z State and Michigan. Western finished on a sour note, however, losing its final two games for the second year in a row. Zack Wynn took over from struggling Zach Terrell at quarterback. Neither player was terribly effective, but B-Dawg has hope for the future in speedy (93 SPD) athlete recruit David Landrum, who will check in at 80 OVR at quarterback.

2015
Prestige: 3 stars
Grades: B- OVR, B offense, C+ defense, B+ special teams; 81 OVR, 86 offense, 76 defense
Preseason ranking: No. 69
Record: 12-2 (9-0, MAC champions)
Final ranking: No. 18 coaches, No. 19 AP, No. 23 BCS
Bowl game: Western Michigan 42, Louisiana-Lafayette 35 (GoDaddy.com Bowl)
Passing leader: David Landrum 307-for-426, 3,399 yards, 21 TD, 10 int.
Rushing leaders: David Landrum 258 carries, 1,383 yards, 16 TD; Dennis Norfleet 251 carries, 1,031 yards, 16 TD.
Receiving leaders: Dennis Norfleet 87 catches, 661 yards, 5 TD; Jaime Wilson 85 catches, 1,181 yards, 7 TD.
Defensive leaders: Caleb Bailey 92 tackles; Roosevelt Donaldson 19 TFL, 11 sacks; Logan Oce 4 interceptions, 2 TD; Michael Butler 6 deflections.
Synopsis: The David Landrum era began with a bang, as the highly touted freshman quarterback had the best debut season ever for a B-Dawg player. He won the Heisman Trophy over Johnny Manziel, became only the second B-Dawg quarterback ever to rush for 1,000 yards (1,383) and led the Broncos to 12 straight victories after an 0-2 start. Dennis Norfleet also reached the 1,000-yard rushing mark, giving B-Dawg two 1,000-yard rushers for the first time. Western won its first MAC title and first bowl game in B-Dawg’s three-year reign.

2016
Prestige: 4 stars
Grades: B OVR; 86 OVR, 91 offense, 82 defense
Preseason ranking: No. 36
Record: 12-2 (9-0 MAC champions)
Final ranking: No. 11 coaches, No. 13 AP
Bowl game: Western Michigan 28, Clemson 25 (Orange Bowl)
Passing leader: David Landrum 288-for-413, 2,990 yards, 19 TD, 16 int.
Rushing leader: David Landrum 275 carries, 1,430 yards, 16 TD
Receiving leader: Corey Davis 74 catches, 762 yards, 4 TD
Defensive leaders: Caleb Bailey 82 tackles, 23 TFL; Roosevelt Donaldson 11 sacks; Travis Cox 5 interceptions; Nicholas Schmidt 7 deflections.
Synopsis: Sophomore David Landrum won a second straight Heisman trophy as Western Michigan’s dual-threat quarterback. The Broncos won their first BCS bowl, beating Clemson 28-25 in the Orange Bowl. Western won its final 10 games after a 2-2 start that included losses to Florida and Indiana. The Broncos beat Kent State, 38-13, in the MAC title game.

2017
Prestige: 5 stars
Grades: B OVR, B+ offense, B- defense, A special teams; 86 OVR, 90 offense, 83 defense
Preseason ranking: No. 30
Record: 12-2 (9-0 MAC champions)
Final ranking: No. 2 coaches, No. 3 AP
Bowl game: Western Michigan 45, Central Florida 24 (Rose Bowl)
Passing leader: David Landrum 223-for-315, 2,336 yards, 16 TD, 13 int.
Rushing leader: David Landrum 210 carries, 1,430 yards, 17 TD
Receiving leader: Jared Gray 71 catches, 882 yard, 5 TD
Defensive leaders: Caleb Bailey 107 tackles, 32 TFL; David Curle 18 sacks; Logan Oce 4 interceptions, Derrick Guillory and Bo Wright 7 deflections.
Synopsis: With a break or two, Western Michigan might have been playing for the national championship. As it stands, the Broncos had to be satisfied with their second straight victory in a BCS bowl, a 45-24 decision over Central Florida in the Rose Bowl. David Landrum’s bid for a third straight Heisman Trophy ended when he missed three games with an elbow strain suffered in the first half of a 27-26 upset loss at Eastern Michigan. After that loss, the Broncos won their final eight games. They scheduled four nationally ranked teams in nonconference play, coming away with a 3-1 record in those games.

2018
Prestige: 6 stars
Grades: B+ OVR, B+ offense, B- defense, A special teams; 88 OVR 91 offense, 83 defense
Preseason ranking: No. 13
Record: 8-5, 6-3 Big Ten (T-2nd East Division)
Final ranking: No. 24 coaches, No. 26 AP, No. 11 BCS
Bowl game: Alabama 38, Western Michigan 21 (Gator Bowl)
Passing leader: David Landrum 226-for-343, 2,526 yards, 20 TD, 15 int.
Rushing leader: Eric Cox 187 carries, 991 yards, 10 TD
Receiving leader: Jared Gray 79 catches, 979 yards, 8 TD
Defensive leaders: Xavier Denman 96 tackles, 23 TFL; Nick Holmes 8 sacks; Travis Cox 4 int.
Synopsis: Western Michigan was competitive in its first season in the Big Ten, thanks to the talent of superstar senior quarterback David Landrum. The Broncos were in a position to play for the national championship, taking a No. 2 BCS ranking into the regular-season finale at Maryland. However, the Terrapins pulled off a 33-28 victory on a 39-yard touchdown pass from Rashaad McLaughlin to Andrew Holloway with nine seconds left. A Gator Bowl loss to Alabama left Western with a 1-3 record against ranked teams. The Broncos did beat an Ohio State team that was having a down year and was unranked.

2019
Prestige: 5 stars
Grades: B+ OVR, B+ offense, B defense, A+ special teams; 88 OVR, 90 offense, 85 defense
Preseason ranking: No. 25
Record: 10-3, 6-3 Big Ten (3rd place East Division)
Final ranking: No. 7 coaches, No. 7 AP, No. 11 BCS
Bowl game: Western Michigan 38, Missouri 28 (Outback Bowl)
Passing leader: John Nelson 273-for-405, 2,952 yards, 22 TD, 7 int.
Rushing leaders: John Nelson 207 carries, 1,162 yards, 10 TD; Eric Cox 232 carries, 944 yards, 11 TD
Receiving leader: Jared Gray 74 catches, 895 yards, 8 TD
Defensive leaders: Gary Dennis 74 tackles; Clint Cobbs 19 TFL; Richard Robinson 10 sacks; Calvin Brothers 4 int., 5 deflections
Synopsis: Coach B-Dawg added a few more gray hairs late in the season during what appears to be a traditional stretch in the schedule with back-to-back games against Michigan and Ohio State. One week after beating a No. 1-ranked Michigan team in overtime, the Broncos lost to a No. 1-ranked Ohio State team in overtime, a game which produced a No. 2 all-time ESPN Classic score of 3,083 points. The John Nelson era at quarterback started well. While the true freshman quarterback didn't win a Heisman like David Landrum did in his first season, Nelson impressed coach B-Dawg with his ability to protect the ball, throwing 22 touchdown passes and only 7 interceptions. Nelson also kept up the recent tradition of Western having 1,000-yard rushers at quarterback, which pleases B-Dawg immensely.

2020
Prestige: 5 stars
Grades: B+ OVR, A- offense, B defense, A+ special teams; 90 OVR, 93 offense, 85 defense
Preseason ranking: No. 9
Record: 9-4, 6-3 (T-2nd Big Ten East)
Final ranking: No. 14 coaches, No. 15 AP, No. 4 BCS
Bowl game: UCLA 31, Western Michigan 21 (Rose Bowl)
Passing leader: John Nelson 189-for-293, 2,419 yards, 13 TD, 19 int.
Rushing leader: Eric Cox 246 carries, 1,165 yards, 16 TD
Receiving leader: Jeremy King 74 catches, 1,115 yards, 6 TD
Defensive leaders: Gary Dennis 99 tackles; Chuck Rogers 20 TFL; Richard Robinson 10.5 sacks; Paul Vaughn 3 interceptions; Danny Brantley 9 deflections.
Synopsis: Disaster struck in the 2020 season for Western. No, it wasn’t a major injury or any of the losses. It was worse — B-Dawg had his first simmed game ever. He accidentally simmed a game against Purdue (a victory, but that’s besides the point). It created a major dilemma. What to do with the players’ statistics? He wound up not including any of the simmed stats in the final stats he posted. So, quarterback John Nelson was not credited with the game of his life (4 TD passes, 0 interceptions) in what turned out to be a highly disappointing followup to his great freshman year. The bright spot was the play of junior halfback Eric Cox, who finished fourth in Heisman Trophy voting after racking up 3,427 all-purpose yards and 18 total touchdowns.

2021
Prestige: 5 stars
Grades: B+ OVR, A- offense, B+ defense, A+ special teams; 90 OVR, 93 offense, 88 defense
Preseason ranking: No. 12
Record: 13-1, 9-0 (1st Big Ten East, lost Big Ten Championship Game)
Final ranking: No. 5 coaches, No. 5 AP, No. 5 BCS
Bowl game: #5 Western Michigan 41, #10 Auburn 24
Passing leader: John Nelson 178 of 267, 2,167 yards, 13 TD, 9 int.
Rushing leader: Eric Cox 404 carries, 2,324 yards, 33 TD
Receiving leader: Marcus Moody 39 catches, 541 yards, 5 TD
Defensive leaders: Chuck Rogers 87 tackles, Quinton Johnson 20 TFL, Scott Whitaker 9 sacks, Paul Vaughn 6 int., Danny Brantley 10 deflections.
Synopsis: Western Michigan had its best record ever and a Heisman Trophy winner in Eric Cox, but it will be a painful loss that is remembered most about this season. The Broncos reached No. 1 in the country for the first time in this dynasty late in the season. They looked to be a lock to play for the national championship when they drew Iowa in the Big Ten Conference Championship Game. In the Big Ten opener, Western thrashed Iowa, 56-14, with three Broncos rushing for 100 yards. But it was a much different game the second time around, with the Hawkeyes pulling off a 32-29 upset, depriving Western of a trip to the national championship game. Western switched from a balanced offense that featured the arm and legs of quarterback John Nelson to a run-heavy offense that featured Cox. The 99 OVR Cox was more than capable of handling a heavy load, running 404 times for 2,324 yards and 33 touchdowns to win the Heisman.

2022
Prestige: 6 stars
Grades: 93 OVR, 95 offense, 92 defense
Preseason ranking: No. 7
Record: 12-2, 8-1 Big Ten (Beat Northwestern, 23-18, in Big Ten Championship Game)
Final ranking: No. 8 BCS; because of a glitch I am experiencing at the end of seasons, I don’t know what my final ranking was in the polls.
Bowl game: #8 Western Michigan 48, #7 UCLA 45, 3 OT (Rose Bowl)
Passing leader: Joe Banks 159-for-240, 1,872 yards, 12 TD, 9 int.
Rushing leader: Derek Jones 488 carries, 2,308 yards, 32 TD
Receiving leader: Marcus Moody 66 catches, 1,039 yards, 7 TD
Defensive leaders: Chuck Rogers and Sam Tremblay 83 tackles; Harvey Boyd and Quinton Johnson 21 TFL; Drew Robinson 11 sacks; Danny Brantley 5 int.; Paul Vaughn 11 deflections.
Synopsis: Western Michigan bounced back from an early-season 48-47 loss at Notre Dame to put itself in a position to play in the national championship game. However, the No. 3 Broncos were caught napping in College Park and lost a 30-23 shocker to unheralded Maryland in the regular-season finale. They went on to beat Northwestern, 23-18, in the Big Ten Championship Game and UCLA, 48-45 in three overtimes, in the Rose Bowl, but the loss to Maryland will forever haunt the Broncos. As it turned out, a four-loss Notre Dame team played for — and won — the national championship. John Nelson, Western’s starting quarterback the past three seasons, was yanked in favor of Joe Banks in the fourth game of the year, but Nelson came off the bench to lead the Broncos to the Big Ten and Rose Bowl victories. Running back Derek Jones was the Heisman Trophy runnerup.

Receiving leader: 70 catches, 1,077 yards, 14 TD
Defensive leaders: Harvey Boyd 81 tackles, 30 TFL; T.J. Treangen 11 sacks; Darren Irvin 8 interceptions; Matt Hancock 14 deflections.
Synopsis: After knocking on the door of the national championship repeatedly in recent years, Western Michigan finally got into the big game and won it by a surprisingly easy 31-13 score over Notre Dame. Notre Dame, the defending national champion, won two close shootouts with the Broncos in the past two seasons, including 41-38 in the second game of this season. B-Dawg gave true freshman Bo Connor a chance to be the starting quarterback, but he was replaced by fifth-year senior Chris Simon in the third game of the year. Simon kept the turnovers to a minimum, throwing 23 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions. Running back Brian Williams brought home Western’s fourth Heisman Trophy in this dynasty. Unlike past seasons, when Western had numerous close games, the only close games were the early loss to Notre Dame and a 31-24 victory at Ohio State, a game which was won on a touchdown run by Williams with 19 seconds left.

Re: B-Dawg's Western Michigan Broncos: Unfinished bidnezz




TYLER VAN TUBBERGEN

QUARTERBACKS
Fifth-year senior Tyler Van Tubbergen will be the sacrificial lamb who will likely throw way too many interceptions as B-Dawg learns the new game. B-Dawg will not have played a full game of NCAA ’14 when he opens the season at Michigan State. Poor TVT! He won’t even get to benefit from the year of experience, as he’ll be gone. B-Dawg could do worse at quarterback with a one-star program, as Van Tubbergen is 77 OVR with 76 SPD, 85 THP and 80 THA. Two of the other three quarterbacks on the roster are freshmen.


DAREYON CHANCE

RUNNING BACKS
One of B-Dawg’s priorities in his first recruiting season will be to load up at running back, as four of the team’s five halfbacks are seniors. There is no clear-cut No. 1 halfback, so 79 OVR Dareyon Chance will get the starting nod over 78 OVR Brian Fields, 76 OVR Devin Drake and 75 OVR Antoin Scriven, but is not guaranteed to be starting when the season ends. The default roster didn’t have a fullback. B-Dawg loves him a good fullback, but always has trouble recruiting them. To make sure he doesn’t have to worry about recruiting that position hard for awhile, he put true freshman halfback Austin Guido at fullback. Guido is 64 OVR with 81 SPD. Hopefully his blocking ratings will improve with training.


JAIME WILSON

WIDE RECEIVERS
A potential star for this dynasty down the road is 80 OVR red-shirt sophomore receiver Jaime Wilson, who is tied for the highest OVR on the team. Wilson has 86 SPD and 78 CTH. That wouldn’t even qualify for the top four in the rotation in most of B-Dawg’s dynasties, but he’s looking pretty good right now. B-Dawg hopes to showcase red-shirt sophomore receiver Kendrick Roberts (68 OVR) and red-shirt freshman receiver Michael Henry (67 OVR) in this ’nasty, as both hail from Flint, Mich. B-Dawg saw both athletes compete in high school. They should get some catches in four- and five-receiver sets.


CLARK MUSSMAN

TIGHT ENDS
Tight end is a weakness on this team, as the starter with be 69 OVR red-shirt senior Clark Mussman. Mussman’s 80 SPD should hopefully allow him to get some YAC on short routes and get mismatches with MAC-caliber linebackers on post routes to the tight end that are key features of B-Dawg’s passing attack. His replacement — either next year or this year if he falters — is 68 OVR junior Mario Rodriguez.


TERRY DAVISSON

OFFENSIVE LINEMEN
B-Dawg has had trouble running the ball in the most recent versions of NCAA Football, particularly in the early years of his dynasties. Trying to gain ground behind this line won’t be easy, as the best player is 76 OVR center Terry Davisson. Unfortunately, he’s a fifth-year senior who will have to be replaced next year. Nobody else on the line is rated higher than 72 OVR.


TRAVONTE BOLES

DEFENSIVE LINEMEN
This is a young unit which will have freshmen starting at both ends in 75 OVR Roosevelt Donaldson and 73 OVR Khairi Bailey. Four of the five defensive ends and four of the six defensive tackles are freshmen. Seniors will plug up the middle, with 74 OVR Travonte Boles and 70 OVR Cory Sueing at the tackles. Donaldson will get the coveted left defensive line spot from which B-Dawg gets most of his sacks. He’s a potential standout in this dynasty as the highest-rated member of the defensive line in his red-shirt freshman year.


JOHNNIE SIMON

LINEBACKERS
B-Dawg sees big things from senior outside linebacker Johnnie Simon, a converted defensive back who is 80 OVR with 86 SPD. Expect him to be released for some blitzes from the outside. Desmond Bozeman, a 76 OVR senior, will start at middle linebacker. His strength is an 84 TAK rating. Yet another freshman will start on defense in 67 OVR true freshman Edward Rolle, who has 84 SPD.


DONALD CELISCAR

DEFENSIVE BACKS
One of the team’s top players is 80 OVR cornerback Donald Celiscar, a junior. He has 87 SPD. Starting on the other side will be 70 OVR Jon Henry, a red-shirt junior with a 91 SPD rating that matches the team high. Junior Justin Currie (78 OVR, 84 SPD) starts at free safety, while senior Demetrius Pettway (77 OVR, 87 SPD) are the other starters.


ANDREW HALDEMAN

SPECIAL TEAMS
B-Dawg is set at kicker and punter for three years, as kicker Andrew Haldeman and punter J Schroeder are red-shirt sophomores. Haldeman is 77 OVR with 82 KPW and 74 KAC, while Schroeder is 76 OVR with 80 KPW and 72 KAC. In order to get some shine for one of his Flint boyz, B-Dawg will have red-shirt sophomore wide receiver Kendrick Roberts return kicks and punts. His 89 SPD ranks fourth on the team, first among offensive players.

Re: B-Dawg's Western Michigan Broncos: Unfinished bidnezz


Western Michigan’s Kendrick Roberts fields the opening kickoff of this dynasty at
Michigan State’s Spartan Stadium.


Future star?
Freshman defensive end has
5 TFL in opening loss at MSU


EAST LANSING, Mich. — B-Dawg learned two things from his debut as Western Michigan’s football coach.

First, the set of sliders he tried for the first time appear promising. A 31-7 loss at Michigan State in which the Broncos had trouble moving the ball after scoring on their first possession seemed very realistic.

Second, while there may not be as many future stars as Western had in NCAA 2006, the Broncos may have one on their hands in defensive end Roosevelt Donaldson.

Donaldson, a 75 OVR red-shirt freshman, had five tackles for losses, two sacks and a forced fumble.

“He plays left defensive end, the position from which I get most of my sacks,” B-Dawg said. “He’s been given a great opportunity. He seized it today. Roosevelt has a chance to put up some huge numbers for his career if he can build on how he played today. I’m pretty stoked.”

At least there was something for B-Dawg to get excited about, because there was nothing encouraging about the rest of the team.

Quarterback Tyler Van Tubbergen led the Broncos on a touchdown drive to open the game, but finished 18-for-33 for 212 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. Starting halfback Dareyon Chance had an unremarkable 43 yards on 12 carries.

MSU is rated 93 on defense, so that was to be expected.

“This is actually the first full game of NCAA ’14 I’ve played,” B-Dawg said. “It’s always a bit of a risk that maybe I’ll have an unrealistic win. This was a good game. It had the right feel to it.”

Van Tubbergen was 4-for-4 for 46 yards on the opening drive, which went 83 yards in 13 plays, spanning 4:57. The drive culminated with a 1-yard touchdown run by freshman fullback Austin Guido with 4:03 left in the opening quarter.

After that, the Broncos never came close to scoring, but they kept the game close enough to have a chance. MSU led 14-7 at halftime before breaking it open in the third quarter on two touchdown catches by tight end Paul Lang.

The first scoring catch was an 8-yarder from starter Andrew Maxwell. Maxwell sustained a bruised knee on a sack by Donaldson with 2:04 left in the third quarter. Before Maxwell returned to the game, Connor Cook came in and threw a 46-yard pass to Bennie Fowler to set up a 2-yard scoring strike to Lang.

“You expect to do some damage on defense when the back-up quarterback comes in, but he burned us twice,” B-Dawg said.

Nick Hill ran 24 times for 117 yards and caught two passes for 33 yards for MSU. Linebacker Max Bullough had nine tackles, three for losses, two sacks and an interception.
