B-Dawg's Air Force Falcons: Flying high A.F.


B-Dawg hoists the crystal football after winning a natty at Western Michigan.

Guess who’s back, guess who’s back

Tell a friend: B-Dawg looks to create a monster at Air Force

The first clue of trouble in paradise was the headline: “Boredom setting in?”

B-Dawg had just led his Western Michigan Broncos to a 45-0 trouncing of Penn State, the Broncos’ third rout of a perennial national power in the 2024 season.

What should have been cause for celebration only sucked even more of B-Dawg’s enthusiasm as he improved to 8-0 in his 12th season at the helm after winning his first national championship the previous season.

Instead, he offered a cryptic quote that suggested he was about to turn in his controller and walk away from the game.

“I’ve had some life changes that have made coaching this team to another national championship less of a priority,” B-Dawg said at the time. “However, I’ve had nights in which I could’ve fired up the PS3, but the prospect of another blowout win didn’t seem exciting. I do have Ohio State sitting out there as my next opponent. We always get a great battle with Ohio State. I hope this next game is no different, even if we lose. Without the fear of losing, this game isn’t much fun.”

That game was posted on April 12, 2016.

Since then, it’s been radio silence from B-Dawg.

He played two more games that were never posted, trouncing Ohio State and Indiana to raise Western’s record to 10-0.

“I kept meaning to post those games, but then I figured, ‘Why bother?’” B-Dawg said. “The passion was gone.”

The “life changes” to which B-Dawg alluded was being in the first few months of a new relationship after his previous girlfriend of several years abruptly showed herself to be a cheating money-grubbing hoe who would rather be with guys who had money, even if they were fat MF’ers who didn’t treat her nearly as well. His new relationship turned into a marriage in November 2017.

B-Dawg was married before, but he began binge-playing NCAA Football and Madden well into the night starting in 2002 because, as he’s put it, “It wasn’t worth my while to go to bed early, if you know what I mean.” With a lot of free time on his hands and no sex life whatsoever, B-Dawg began posting his results almost daily at MaddenMania (pour a sip), first with the Detroit Lions in Madden 2003 and then the University of Michigan in NCAA 2004.

Fast-forward to 2016. The lack of excitement over the game, lack of free time and a change in priorities meant B-Dawg’s copy of NCAA ’14 began gathering dust. Oh, there would be sparks of interest in starting a dynasty as a new college football season began, but those sparks didn’t create any fire.

Then, on a cold winter day in January 2018, with an afternoon to kill before covering high school basketball that night, B-Dawg fired up the PS3 and started a new dynasty.

After scrolling through teams and imagining possibilities with each, he settled on Air Force for reasons we’ll get into later.

Unsure how things would go with so much time off and a switch from All-American to Heisman mode, B-Dawg decided to play a full season before he began posting his dynasty bit by bit. If the results seemed realistic enough, he would post. If not, nobody would ever know these games were played. He had no idea that, because of a combination of time availability and interest, it would take him until August of 2020 to complete the first season.

He began with 2018 rosters and nearly scrapped this and went to a dynasty with 2019 rosters and then 2020 rosters as he slowly worked his way through the first season. But he eventually got the bug to keep going and completed a season.

It took from Jan. 21, 2019 until Aug. 25, 2020 to play the first season. B-Dawg hopes to average one game a week now that he’s taken this ‘nasty out of the closet.

So, here we go. This won’t be a typical B-Dawg dynasty in terms of detail and pace of play, but by gradually posting games that have already been played, hopefully there won’t be long gaps between posts.


Falcon Stadium in Colorado Springs is B-Dawg’s new home.

Why Air Force?
The most important decision in any dynasty is selecting a team.

Do you run with your favorite team? Do you rebuild a struggling program in a power conference? Do you take a team from a mid-major and build it to national prominence, switching to a power conference along the way?

B-Dawg has rolled with his favorite team, Michigan, in two dynasties. That becomes way too easy way too soon. He’s used all three Mid-American Conference teams from Michigan, so another season in the MAC would have been mind-numbing.

The most intriguing crappy school in a power conference is Vanderbilt, but B-Dawg coached the Commodores in NCAA 2007.

B-Dawg is a patriotic sort who has always been intrigued with the military schools. He played an Army dynasty in NCAA 2003 that wasn’t posted. At the time, he considered coaching Army to a national championship, switching to Navy or Air Force, doing the same, then going to the final school. That seemed too time-consuming.

B-Dawg settled on Air Force, because it’s a military school and plays in the Mountain West Conference. That means playing on the beloved Smurf Turf at Boy-Z State every other year.

So, why not just run with Boy-Z State if he has such a fetish for blue fields? Well, that would be too easy, as the Broncos are a powerhouse in the Mountain West. A powerhouse team in a middling conference sounds like the worst dynasty imaginable.

Did you say Heisman mode? (Gulp!)
B-Dawg readily admits he’s not the best player out there.

As such, he doesn’t play manually and clings to All-American mode like a child does its security blanket.

But even coming up with sliders that favor the CPU in All-American mode creates a fairly easy game if you play regularly enough.

Heisman mode, however, scares the crap out of B-Dawg any time someone suggests it. Before playing this dynasty, he messed around with some Heisman mode games with default sliders, and the results were promising. He had to work to make plays.

The sliders could be a work in progress as the season goes along, but he’s starting out with default sliders. Yes, we all want to have a challenge where the game doesn’t become too easy. But we don’t want the game to become an exercise in frustration that causes us to break our only remaining PS3 controller.

We don’t need no stinkin’ rules!
I’m not going to go overboard with dynasty rules, since I’m already handicapping myself by playing on Heisman mode and I won’t play as often.

I’m not going to get silly with recruiting restrictions, other than I can’t recruit any players from Canada for obvious reasons. As I got started with this dynasty, it was apparent that recruiting isn’t going to be unrealistically easy.

Game-play wise, I’ll use a created offensive and defensive playbook and use the “ask coach” feature to call plays, making exceptions occasionally in hurry-up offenses or to get third-and-one when “ask coach” doesn’t give me a simple HB dive. I’ll play nine-minute quarters.

Reasons for optimism
Air Force goes into this dynasty with a decided lack of talent, which is by design. What’s the sense of building a dynasty when the pieces are already in place?

Air Force is rated C OVR or 74 OVR, depending on your preference. The Falcons are C+ (77) on offense, C (73) on defense and D on special teams. There’s definitely room for improvement.

The cause for optimism in Colorado Springs, besides having a coaching legend take over the helm, is the presence of talented youngsters on the existing roster.

Six of Air Force’s best players are sophomores.

Donald Hammond, an 83 OVR sophomore, will be the starting quarterback. Sophomore defensive end Jordan Jackson is rated 85 OVR, tying for the highest rating on the team.

Sophomore Kadin Remsberg is an intriguing player, leading the running back corps at 76 OVR and leading the entire team with SEC-like 95 SPD. Sophomore outside linebacker Lakota Wills is 76 OVR, tops among linebackers.

Two of the top offensive linemen are sophomores: 74 OVR guard Nolan Laufenberg and 73 OVR tackle Parker Ferguson.

“I’m not sure what the progression is for a program like ours, but these guys could be beasts at our level by their senior years if the progression system is generous,” B-Dawg said.

Long-term goal
B-Dawg doesn’t want to slum it in the Mountain West Conference forever, regardless of the trip every other year to the glorious Smurf Turf.

The goal is to get the Falcons into the Pac-12 Conference to get better competition and more enticing matchups if they can begin to dominate the MWC first. Playing the same teams gets old after a while, so it’ll be nice to switch it up and play in the Pac-12.

At the pace B-Dawg has been playing this dynasty, it could be a few years of real time before Air Force reaches that level of prominence.

Synopsis: B-Dawg discovered a player who could go down as one of his all-time greats in sophomore running back Kadin Remsberg. Remsberg, whose 95 SPD made for mismatches against Mountain West Conference competition, set a school record with 1,406 receiving yards. B-Dawg transformed Air Force from a running team to a passing team, with the Falcons throwing for 4,125 yards. After a 3-4 start, Air Force won four straight games to secure a bowl bid. They were successful in that game, beating Eastern Michigan on a 5-yard catch by Geraud Sanders with 30 seconds left in the Military Bowl. Defense was a major concern for the Falcons, who allowed at least 30 points seven times.

Synopsis: B-Dawg missed a bowl game for the first time since his first season at Eastern Michigan in NCAA ’08, with all seven of his losses coming by seven points or less. Air Force lost its final three games, needing just one victory to clinch a bowl berth. Three of those losses were in overtime games during a four-game stretch around midseason. Turnovers in clutch situations doomed the Falcons. On the bright side, B-Dawg did have fun running up video game numbers with speedy halfback Kadin Remsberg, not as a runner, but as a receiver. Remsberg hauled in 82 passes for 1,502 yards. He has one season remaining, so B-Dawg will milk him as much as possible.

Defense: Christopher Musselman (81 tackles), Jordan Jackson (22 TFL, 15 sacks), Jalen Mergerson and Auston Deason (2 interceptions each)
Synopsis: Air Force cracked the top 25 for the first time, getting as high as No. 24 before losing 47-23 to Memphis in the Poinsettia Bowl. This season marked the swan song for the three greatest players in this dynasty so far, as quarterback Donald Hammond, running back Kadin Remsberg and defensive end Jordan Jackson continued to pile up numbers and raise the expectations for the program. The team hit a big-time low when Colorado State beat the Falcons 72-40, the most points ever allowed by a B-Dawg team in any version of NCAA Football. That was Air Force’s second straight loss, but the team responded with seven straight victories before losing in the bowl game.

Defense: Demonte Meeks (81 tackles), Gary Mossop (17 TFL), Kamakani Crosby (8 sacks), Mark Monroe (4 interceptions, 7 deflections)
Synopsis: Junior running back Trey Taylor emerged from the shadows of Kadin Remsberg to win the first Heisman Trophy in Air Force history. The Falcons had a chance to do some really special things as a team, facing Boy-Z State in a showdown of 6-0 teams. However, Air Force blew a 28-7 halftime lead in a 41-31 loss to a team that would go on to win the Fiesta Bowl over Oklahoma. This was the first season post-Remsberg, meaning Air Force would need to find ways to win without chucking it deep to the speedy running back against mismatches at the first sign of trouble. With a 10-3 record, the Falcons did OK without Remsberg and fellow stars from the original roster Donald Hammond and Jordan Jackson, as seven players had at least 200 receiving yards and six had at least 32 catches.

2018 PRESEASON REPORT




DONALD HAMMOND

QUARTERBACKS
The quarterback of the future is also the quarterback of the present for Air Force. Sophomore Donald Hammond is the highest-rated quarterback at 83 OVR and comes with the speed (82) required to run the read option game which was successful for B-Dawg at Western Michigan. Hammond has 87 THP and 80 THA, so he could have interception issues, particularly at Heisman mode. Junior Isaiah Sanders (81 OVR, 82 SPD, 82 THP, 77 THA) and senior Arion Worthman (80 OVR, 85 SPD, 83 THP, 77 THA) aren’t much of a drop-off if Hammond falters or gets a rare long-term NCAA ’14 injury.


KADIN REMSBERG

RUNNING BACKS
Kadin Remsberg, a 76 OVR sophomore halfback, is the most intriguing player on Air Force’s roster, because he’s the fastest. Remsberg has SEC-type speed with a 95 SPD roster, which has B-Dawg licking his chops over the possibilities of using him as a mismatch coming out of the backfield. B-Dawg hopes to get him on the edge as a runner, but isn’t sure how well that will work on Heisman mode with a so-so offensive line. The other running backs who should get regular work have precisely the type of SPD you’d expect from Air Force, with junior Nolan Eriksen possessing 86 SPD and junior Joseph Saucier checking in with 85 SPD. B-Dawg loves using his fullbacks, so junior Cole Fagan (80 OVR, 81 SPD) could get some touches.


GERAUD SANDERS

WIDE RECEIVERS
Despite the “Air” in Air Force, the real-life Falcons aren’t known as a passing team. As a result, you get a wide receiving corps like the one B-Dawg inherited. There are linebackers as fast or faster than Air Force’s fastest receivers. Senior Ronald Cleveland is the fastest receiver with 88 SPD, while Marcus Bennett has 86 SPD. Expect Air Force to use its receivers in move-the-chains roles, not for game-breaking plays. That could be beneficial to 73 OVR slot receiver Geraud Sanders. Bennett has the best hands with 82 CTH. It gets pretty dismal after that.


KADE WAGUESPACK

TIGHT ENDS
How valuable is AWR in NCAA Football? That is the nagging question for B-Dawg as he assesses his tight ends. From a skill standpoint, freshman Chris Kane has an edge over junior Kade Waguespack. Kane has 70 CTH, 77 SPD, 67 PBK and 67 RBK. The thing holding him back, if it’s relevant, is his 61 AWR. Waguespack has 77 SPD, 68 CTH, 62 PBK and 69 RBK. His edge is his 80 AWR. This could go back and forth this season. The AWR gap is probably why Waguespack has a 69-67 edge in OVR.


GRIFFIN LANDRUM

OFFENSIVE LINEMEN
Air Force has only one legitimate Division I player on its offensive line in 85 OVR guard Griffin Landrum. After that, it’s a patchwork building project. Junior tackle Scott Hattok is 74 OVR and sophomore guard Nolan Laufenberg is 74 OVR. It could be years before the Falcons have an offensive line where everyone is at least 80-plus OVR.


JORDAN JACKSON

DEFENSIVE LINEMEN
Air Force has a potential beast in its top-rated player, 85 OVR sophomore defensive end Jordan Jackson. Maybe he’s a future rocket scientist, because he comes in with a 91 AWR rating as a sophomore. Maybe that was an oversight by the roster editors. He has 76 SPD, 80 STR and 80 TAK. Whatever the Air Force record is for sacks, Jackson should own it after three seasons. The No. 2-ranked guy on the defensive line is junior tackle Mosese Fifita, who is 76 OVR with 86 STR and 70 TAK.


BRODY BAGNALL

LINEBACKERS
The future star in this group is 76 OVR sophomore outside linebacker Lakota Wills, who has 81 SPD and 75 TAK. The other starters won’t be around when Air Force begins contending, with 73 OVR senior Brody Bagnall at middle linebacker and 73 OVR senior Kyle Floyd at outside linebacker.


JEREMY FEJEDELEM

DEFENSIVE BACKS
This secondary could get torched this season. The starting cornerbacks are 70 OVR junior Zane Lewis and 69 OVR Dailen Sutton. Jeremy Fejedelem, a 77 OVR junior free safety, and Garrett Kauppila, a 75 OVR red-shirt junior strong safety, could end up with a bunch of tackles while cleaning up the mess created by the cornerbacks. There’s not much hope for the future in this group, with 66 OVR sophomore Milton Bugg and 64 OVR freshman Auston Deason the only cornerbacks who will be around after next season.


JAKE KOEHNKE

SPECIAL TEAMS
Expect B-Dawg to go for it on fourth down a bunch this season in situations that would normally call for a field goal. His kicker, junior Jake Koehnke, possesses only 77 KPW and 73 KAC. Switching junior punter Charlie Scott to kicker wouldn’t help much, as Scott has 75 KPW and 65 KAC. Recruiting a kicker will be a priority to get the progression train rolling for two years from now.
