We have a football team too... Guru's UConn Huskies (NCAA 14)





Background Info/Dynasty Premise

So after the untimely and accidental ending of my beloved Mass State ‘chise, I wanted to get back to NCAA 14. Haven’t spent more than a season with current-gen NCAA in an offline ‘chise since my Kentucky dynasty about 8 months ago. Wanted to go with a bit of a worse team, yet sticking to New England and not working with BC again.

Essentially, this left me with 2 choices: UMass and UConn. I’ve wanted to do UMass for a while, but I like UConn’s uniforms and the conference a bit better (everyone does MAC ‘chises, not a lot of love for the AAC. However, I will keep UMass open as an option in a ‘chise down the line.)

The goal is to bring UConn football back to relevance and take the team to the top, to make football matter more than basketball.

As always, comments, likes, or thread votes are always appreciated, though never required. All that matters to me is to make this enjoyable for myself and anyone else who tags along with me.

So kick back, grab some chips and a cold one, and ENJOY!!

Re: We have a football team too... Guru's UConn Huskies (NCAA 14)



Housekeeping:


Game: NCAA Football 14
Platform: PS3
Mode: I am in dynasty mode, playing all games. Debated coach mode, went against it.
Rosters: OS PS3 Community Set, 2014-15 (first version; preseason)
Sliders: Fiddy’s (Seasons 1-4), OS Community (Season 5-7; Season 9-present), JoshC's 50ish Set (Season 7 National Title Game-Season 8)
BCS or Playoff? Thanks to PocketScout, I am intent on trying the 4-team playoff. I am testing this on other files to get a feel for how to do it.

Other:
I am going to be using Coach Diaco’s playbooks for however long he is here. I am free to redshirt any player who will be a backup, the exception being seniors.

I am planning to use the editor whenever necessary.

Edited 9/28/2017: I hate setting house rules, and I haven't been following the ones I've set. So I've removed them here. I try not to pass 70 men on the roster at any point, and I do not break locks in recruiting.. that's about it hahah.

Re: We have a football team too... Guru's UConn Huskies (NCAA 14)



UConn Football History


UConn football was started in 1896 when the college was known as Storrs Agricultural College, and was known as the Aggies. Interestingly, they swapped nicknames between the Aggies and Statesmen for a while, not becoming the Huskies officially until 1934.

They played mostly local foes throughout the early years of the program, such as in-state rival Yale and Rhode Island. UConn was a longtime member of the Yankee Conference, winning 15 titles there.

The program’s first success came in 1924, when they went 6-0-2, and featured a defense that was led by All-American candidate Martin “Red” O’Neill. They were proclaimed as one of the best teams in the country that year. After that, however, UConn had several years of mediocrity, until pulling through and finishing strong in the Atlantic Ten throughout the 80s and 90s.

In 1990, UConn hired a new A.D. in Lew Perkins, and his first task was to attempt to upgrade the team to D-I status. In 1997, the Big East extended invitations to Villanova and UConn. ‘Nova declined, but UConn overwhelmingly accepted, and transitioned into D-I in 2000, one year after Randy Edsall took over as coach.

UConn finished a combined 5-17 over its transitional period, but this allowed the Huskies to expand their scholarship base to 85 and replace the tiny and somewhat aging Memorial Stadium, which fell below the NCAA’s occupancy limit.

It was planned the Huskies would share a stadium with the New England Patriots as they were being courted to Hartford, CT. But when they decided to stay in Massachusetts, Rentschler Field was constructed and opened in 2003.

UConn went 6-6 and 9-3 in 2002 and 2003, what would turn out to be their last seasons as a D-I independent.

UConn was set to join the Big East in 2005, but after Miami and Virginia Tech left in 2003, they were granted early acceptance for the 2004 season. UConn finished 8-4 in 2004, good for 5th in the Big East and good enough for a Motor City Bowl appearance, which they won over Toledo.

After two down seasons, UConn broke through in the Big East in 2007 and claimed a share of the Big East title with West Virginia. The Huskies lost the Meineke Car Care Bowl to Wake Forest, and finished 9-4.

Donald Brown’s 2000 rushing yards captivated fans in 2008, as the Huskies went on to defeat MAC champs Buffalo in the International Bowl. They made it back to a bowl in 2009, winning the papajohns.com Bowl despite dealing with the murder of junior corner Jasper Howard through the season.

The team hit new heights in 2010 when the Huskies claimed the Big East title in a tiebreaker, and won a spot in the BCS as an automatic qualifier. Though they lost the Fiesta Bowl 48-20 to Oklahoma, that was the school’s first major bowl berth.

Edsall left for Maryland after the Fiesta Bowl, and UConn slumped back into mediocrity under Paul Pasqualoni. With former Notre Dame coordinator Bob Diaco leading the charge in 2014, UConn hopes to get back on track and make football in eastern Connecticut desirable again.

About Rentschler Field



Affectionately known as “The Rent”, Rentschler Field in East Hartford, CT has been home to the Connecticut Huskies since August 30, 2003. The Huskies defeated Indiana 34-10 in the stadium’s debut. The Rent was the first stadium to open in the 21st century for primary use from an FBS team.

The “original” Rentschler Field (the company’s airfield) served as a base for testing airplanes, engines and propellers, among other things. The field was de-commissioned as an active airport in the 1990’s.

Self-described by the UConn athletics website, The Rent gets fans as close as possible to the action while being modern enough to include the newest of the new in terms of facilities and equipment.

The Rent features natural grass, which was re-sodded in 2011. It also features stadium seating, fully enclosed club seats and luxury suites. The modern home locker room can hold up to 125 players and encompasses over 3,500 square feet, while the visitors locker room has similar qualities. The west end of the stadium has a scoreboard with a 24 by 32 foot video screen, while the stadium audio is similarly state-of-the-art.

Dynasty Hall of Fame


RB - Joshua Marriner (2014-17)


Career Stats: 817 rush, 3763 yards, 57 TD





The program-changing player in the early years of the Diaco era, Marriner helped bring UConn into the national spotlight while playing starring roles on the 2016 Rose Bowl team and the 2017 National Title winning team. Early in the dynasty, Coach Diaco wasn't sure if the young 5'9 Marriner could be an every down back. While playing a backup role to Max DeLorenzo in 2014 and 2015, Marriner had an important touchdown run in the 2015 Heart of Dallas Bowl and would go on to win the starting job for the 2016 season. Marriner became an impact player immediately, running for 157 yards in the 2016 season opener against Bowling Green.

Marriner ran for 1300 yards in his junior campaign, and only kept soaring in his senior year. Marriner had a legendary 2017 season, taking full command of the UConn offense en route to a 2,032 yard effort with a then school record 24 rushing touchdowns and a school record 144 points. Marriner finished just shy of Florida's Treon Harris in the Heisman race, settling for runner-up and the Doak Walker Award, but UConn got the last laugh as they topped Florida in the National Title Game. Marriner ran for 128 yards and two scores to pass the 2K mark on the season.

To honor Marriner's legacy and place on that National Title winning team, Marriner's jersey #26 would become the second number retired by UConn in August 2020 at their season opener against Indiana.


------- bios to come ----- CB Shav Wade, RB Luke Williamson, QB Isaac Jackson. Maybe more.
