Luton Town was clearly the dominant side as they controlled the ball for nearly 60% of the game and outshot Hartlepool United 17-3. 2 goals by ST Paul Benson (45', 52') were enough to hold Hartlepool at bay.

Star Luton Town CAM Luke Guttridge went down with a sprained ankle and is expected to miss a month.

Luton Town gave a valiant effort but fell to Rotherham United on penalty kicks after a goalless draw. After a scoreless 120 minutes, Rotherham United missed on the first kick, providing hope for the visiting side. But 2 consecutive saves by Rotherham left Luton Town wondering what went wrong.

A brilliant defensive showing on both sides.

UTSA Roadrunners Nab First Recruit Commitment of 2013

SAN ANTONIO - The UTSA Roadrunners have announced their first recruit commitment in 2013 for the 2014 season and beyond.

Marvin Jones, a 2-star Wide Receiver from Kilgore, Texas, announced that he has accepted the Roadrunners' scholarship offer and will join them on campus at the conclusion of his high school senior season.

Offensive Coordinator Ricky Nakano stated through a UTSA spokesperson that "we're very excited to acquire a playmaker of Jones' caliber and Coach Coker and myself cannot wait for Jones to set foot on campus. Jones is a high quality individual and football player and he matches our offensive philosophy."

Hardworking Roadrunners fall 56-46 to the Houston Cougars in Non-Conference Play

SAN ANTONIO - After a narrow victory against the UTEP Miners, UTSA head back home hoping to secure an upset victory against the Houston Cougars in the American Athletic Conference. In the end, there was more than enough offense to secure a victory, but as the old adage says, "Defense wins championships", something the Roadrunners haven't done much lately.

On most Saturdays, if your starting quarterback throws over 500 yards with 5 touchdowns, like what Tucker Carter, replacing the injured Eric Soza, you would expect a victory. Unfortunately for the Roadrunners, Houston signal caller Billy Cosh threw over 500 yards and 4 touchdowns (as well as running for two scores).

Houston opened up a 14-7 lead after the first quarter thanks to effective ball movement across the field, leading to easy runs by Cosh and running back Kenneth Farrow. Their defense took over the second quarter as two mistakes by Carter via interception and fumble inside the UTSA 35 yard line led to easy scores by the Cougars in the short field. Towards the end of the first half, the Roadrunners were marching down the field, and were within the 4 yard line with 20 seconds to go, but horrible time management led to a last second timeout and field goal by placekicker Sean Ianno.

The third quarter started with more Houston dominance over the Roadrunners as 2 Cosh touchdown passes opened up the lead to 42-13. Carter and company however had a strong showing in their last two drives, and two Carter-to-Harrison connections shrunk the lead slightly to 42-26 (UTSA missed a 2-point conversion).

The final quarter was an entertaining affair for both offenses, at the expense of both Defensive Coordinators. Houston and UTSA traded scores to open up the 4th quarter, and a quick drive by the UTSA offense ended with a David Glasco 1 yard run to trim the deficit to 10 with a chance to recover an onside kick. Unfortunately, the Roadrunners failed to recover, and like the other drives by Houston, it ended with 7 points. Tucker Carter and Kenny Harrison padded some stats and broke team records in the process with another TD connection with 1:45 to go, but UTSA couldn't recover their 2nd onside kick of the afternoon, and the Cougars milked the rest of the clock for a 10-point victory.

Despite the loss, fans of the UTSA Roadrunners are very fascinated by their new Offensive Coordinator, and although it's still early in the season, the UTSA offense isn't to blame for the mounting losses by the team. And as usual, Coach Nakano managed to sneak out of the dressing room before local reporters could have a chat with him. Needless to say however, Head Coach Larry Coker has unearthed an interesting coaching prospect into the UTSA ranks. It will be interesting if Coker and Nakano can continue to score points, but more importantly, if the defensive side of the ball can stop their opponents from scoring and give the team a chance to win.

The League 2 season begins with a disappointing loss to Mansfield Town at home 0-3. The sides were evenly matched for much of the first half, but Bell scored on a long lob shot from outside the area in the 29th minute. Mansfield Town wouldn't look back.

Despite being down a man after a red card to ST Simon Heslop in the 38th minute and some near misses by Mansfield Town, Luton Town CB Steve McNulty fouled CAM Fergus Bell in the box. McNulty was red carded in the incident and was capped off with an Adam Murray goal on the penalty.

Bell would get his chance 2 minutes into the 2nd half on a beautiful feed from Murray, after he had slipped 2 defenders. Bell easily put away the goal and the game as well.

Mansfield Town finds itself atop the League 2 standings while Luton Town opens its first week in the League in last.

In other news, Luton Town signed 18 year old free agent CM Alexander Moralejo to a 4 year-$1000/week contract. He is projected to be a rotation player for now, but likely to become a more frequent starter as the season progresses.

Luton Town rested 10 of its top 11 in its last Friendly before the League 2 season starts and it showed. Hobro IK open the first half with 3 goals in the first 24 minutes, and was ahead 5-nil before a extra time goal by LM Jake Howells.

Luton Town ends its exhibition season with 1 draw and 2 losses, leaving its manager skeptical of its league prospects. "There's clearly lots of work to do here," he said. "The defense gave up 9 goals in 3 games. That's not something we willing to tolerate during the season."

Luton Town's defense got caught several times losing their marks and Hobro IK was able to take advantage often. Hobro IK's Antipas scored a hat trick scoring the last 3 goals for the winning side.

Since I already played 4 weeks, I will go ahead and summarize it quickly from what I remember. From Week 5 onwards, I will be more in-depth with the reporting.

Week 1: My first game in charge of the UTSA offense was a great one for all 3 phases of the game in a 52-0 rout of the New Mexico Lobos. On offense, Soza went 23-26 with 269 yards and a touchdown. He also added 33 yards on the ground. Running backs Evans Okotcha and David Glasco rushed for 87 yards (3 TDs) and 98 yards (2 TDs) respectively. Backup Tucker Carter got in some playing time and rushed for another touchdown himself. On defense, we limited the Lobos offense to 6-25 for 60 yards, and 48 yards rushing. It was a complete win.

Week 2: The second game was against a tougher opponent in Oklahoma State in the Alamodome. The first half was close for the Roadrunners, trailing 14-13. Unfortunately, the Cowbowys scored 21 points in the 3rd quarter while we kept going 3-and-out, and that was the ball game. The other concern was the loss of Eric Soza, who is out for the season with a knee cartilage tear. We will have to continue the rest of the season with RS Junior Tucker Carter.

Week 3: Next up is a trip to Arizona. Unlike the Oklahoma State game, we were out of it by the end of the 1st quarter, as they managed to score touchdowns on their first three possessions to take a 20-7 lead after one. We were within striking distance early in the 3rd quarter when we made it a 27-21 game, but a couple more Wildcat scores (a TD and a FG) pushed the victory out of reach. Arizona improve to 3-0 while we drop to 1-2.

Week 4: Our first C-USA game of the season is against in-state rivals UTEP. Defense wasn't a priority in this game as the Roadrunners come out 52-42 victors. The scoreline was 31-21 after the 3rd quarter, before both clubs erupted for 21 points each in the final stanza. There were big scoring numbers all around for the Roadrunners offense, as Tucker Carter went 38-53 for a school record 512 yards and 5 touchdowns, while rushing for another 44 yards and a running TD. David Glasco ran for 72 yards, caught 9 passes for 96, and hit paydirt 3 times. Earon Holmes (9 rec, 133 yards, 1 TD), Kam Jones (7 rec, 93 yards, 1 TD), and Jeremiah Moehler (6 rec, 81 yards) all had banner games.

Next up: Week 5 against Houston.

SAN ANTONIO - The 2013 UTSA Roadrunners have good talent overall for a team in Conference USA, and there's talent and depth on the offensive side of the ball, in the key positions of Quarterback, Running Back, and Wide Receiver.

The offense starts with 5th-year Senior Eric Soza (78 OVR), a dual threat quarterback who can make a case of being one of the best quarterbacks in Conference USA. His backup, Redshirt Junior Tucker Carter (75) fits in with the style of offense that the Roadrunners use. For the Roadrunners sake, hopefully they don't need to use their third-string quarterback, redshirt Freshman Zach Conque (66), or else the losses will pile up.

At running back, veterans David Glasco (RS Junior), Evans Okotcha (RS Senior), and Brandon Armstrong (RS Junior) lead the running game, and will provide good depth which is always very important in college football.

Wide Receivers Kam Jones (75), Earon Holmes (73), and Kenny Harrison (71) will be the starters, while Tight End Jeremiah Moehler (72) provides a big receiving target for the quarterback.

The offensive line is anchored by Junior LT Josh Walker (71), RS Junior LG Scott Inskeep (79), RS Junior C Nate Leonard (75), RS Junior RG Cody Harris (70), and Sophomore RT Zach Hester (67). There's not much depth after their starters though.

However, there are several main questions that have to be answered:
  • Can the offensive line keep their quarterback upright?
  • How will the new unknown commodity, Offensive Coordinator Ricky Nakano, mesh with the offense?
  • Can the defense stop anyone?

International Man of Mystery takes over the UTSA Roadrunners as their new Offensive-Coordinator

July 1, 2013

SAN ANTONIO - Curiosity surrounds the fans at the University of Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners as an individual unknown to the entire college football community is now the new Offensive-Coordinator under Head Coach Larry Coker.

"This young man is an interesting individual," said Coker, "he does have football knowledge and experience. A bright kid and he loves offense. He will be an asset to the coaching staff and players."

According to various sources, this man is indeed an expert on football...or as Americans call it, soccer. As news spread of the background of the coach, fans and boosters alike were up on arms, calling the hiring process a sham and a sign of giving up on UTSA football only in its 3rd season of existence.

The unknown coach, who is from Canada, is called 'Ricky Nakano' in the official press release by the Roadrunners, will make his first appearance as Offensive Coordinator in the season opener against New Mexico. It remains to be seen whether Coach Nakano can help the Roadrunners to success.

Playbook:
  • I currently use Michigan's 'multiple' offense. It's an offense that fits my play-style so I want to keep using it.
  • Defensive playbook I like the 4-3. But it really depends on personnel whenever I'm a HC, so I'll worry about that when it comes

A much tighter defense was shown today by Luton Town, although the still surrendered an early goal.

13 minutes into the first half, UCD AFC scored their only goal on a great cross that landed inside the 6 yard box. Luton Town LB Scott Griffiths attempted to clear the ball, but glanced off his foot and into the net for an own goal.

UCD AFC dominated possessions holding the ball for 60% of the game, but could not muster any other goals.

With Luton Town fearful of a second straight defeat, CM Solomon Taiwo was able to beat his marker to the left of the box and sent a blistering cross to the right side of the 6 yard box where ST Mark Cullen beat his defender and headed the ball into the upper right hand corner of the net, just out of the reach of the goaltender.

With the draw, Luton Town is now 0-1-1 in preseason friendlies.

It was announced after the game that starting CAM Jim Stevenson would miss the league opener with a quad injury. He is likely to miss 2-3 weeks.

Luton Town 0:3 Molde FK

Molde FK looked clearly the better side as a nervous Luton Town squad surrendered 3 goals in the first 23 minutes.

Rindaroy started the scoring in the 12th minute with a solid right foot from the 22 yard line was driven by 3 rapidly closing defenders and the goalie into the upper right coerner of the net.

A defensive lapse in the 18th minute by Luton Town's RB Paul Connolly allowed Ely Ounoussi to sneak by him with the ball and into the box where he made a brilliant cross eluding 2 defenders for an easy goal by Hoiland.

The final goal came in the 23rd minute off a corner kick that was nearly cleared out by GK Mark Tyler, but a brilliant header by Hoiland across the box to Singh left Luton Town defenseless and put easily by the keeper.

Luton Town did play better in the 2nd half, holding Luton Town to 4 shots, with only 1 on target, but could simply not get back into the game. As the minutes ticked off, Luton Town got sloppy on defense and fouled CB Luke Wilkinson fouled Sigurdarson in the box. Singh took the penalty, but was thwarted when his shot hit the left post and stayed out.

Prior to the game, Luton Town announced 2 transfers. CM Alex Lawless (61 OVR, Age 31) was sent to Mansfield Town for $120,000. They also added GK Alex Cairns (OVR 59, Age 21) from Leeds United for a reported $180,000. With GK Mark Tyler now 37 years old, it is clear that Cairns is the heir apparent for Luton Town. The only question that remains is when the position will become his.

With FIFA 15 now out, it has become time for me to start my career. This year, I will be leading newly promoted to League 2 Luton Town as I typically do, attempting to build a dynasty from a newly promoted squad.

To begin with, I'll be using default sliders and default rosters on professional level and will be tweaking as I go.

My starting roster with OVR rating and (age):

GK Mark Tyler 62(37)
RB Paul Connolly 59(30)
CB Steve McNulty 60(30)
CB Luke Wilkinson 61(22)
LB Scott Griffiths 60(28)
CM Andy Drury 63(30)
CM Matt Robinson 50(20)
RM Luke Rooney 59(23)
CAM Luke Guttridge 64(32)
ST Mark Cullen 59(22)
ST Paul Benson 60(34)
ST Ross Lafayette 56(27)
RB Curtley Williams 53(24)
ST Alex Wall 53(23)
CB Alex Lacey 52(21)
GK Elliot Justham 50(24)
CAM Jim Stevenson 58(22)
CM Pelly Ruddock 54(20)
CB Fraser Franks 53(23)
LM Jake Howells 52(23)
CM Solomon Taiwo 57(29)
CM Alex Lawless 56(31)
CM Jonathan Smith 55(27)
ST Charlie Walker 51(24)
LM Mark Onyemah 46(18)
ST Ricky Miller 52(25)
CDM Andy Parry 49(22)
RM Shaun Whalley 51(26)

There's not a lot of good young talent on this squad, so I may approach this team through a youth movement. Since most of my best players are over 30, I'll likely try to move some of them in the summer transfer window and potentially a few more over the winter, depending on how I'm doing.

I've got a reasonable transfer budget of $825,000 and a remaining wage budget of $4,000/wk and will try to make some young acquisitions with it.

My league objective is to fight for promotion and domestic cup objective is to reach the round of 32.

With FIFA 15 coming out, I've started my annual West Ham United Career Mode on FIFA 15. My skills have severely diminished it appears, however, and I'm off to a terrible start!

First moves were to sell injury plagued Andy Carroll, bad-boy/constant headache Ravel Morrison, and surprisingly Jamie Collins after I received a very large offer for him.

Coming in were CB Phil Jones, who I've admired for a while as a young English player, Conor Wickham, who was linked with West Ham this summer, and also Gary Hooper, who was a cheap striker considering his skill level. I also signed veteran Steven Caldwell from TFC as a late injury substitute for a while.

Currently I employ a 4-4-2 formation with Alex Song and Mark Noble playing on top of each other rather then side by side.

Current Starting XI:

GK - Adrian
RB - Jenkinson
CB - Reid
CB - Jones
LB - Cresswell
RM - Downing
CDM - Song
CM - Noble
LM - Jarvis
ST - Zarate
ST - Hooper

Subs:

ST - Valencia
ST - Wickham
ST - Sakho
RM - Amalfitano
CDM - Kouyate
CAM - Nolan
RM - Vaz Te
CB - Tomkins
LB - O'Brien
RB - Demel

Youth players:

CAM - Whitehead
LB - Page
CB - Chambers
CDM - Poyet
LB - Potts
RM - Turgott
LM - Fanimo
ST - Lee
ST - McCallum
CM - Moncur


Results so far are not too good:

League Results (4W - 4D - 12L):

0-7 vs. Tottenham
0-2 @ Crystal Palace
1-5 vs. Southampton
0-5 @ Hull City
1-2 vs. Liverpool
1-3 @ Manchester United
1-3 vs. QPR
2-2 @ Burnley
1-0 vs. Manchester City
1-6 @ Stoke City
0-1 vs. Aston Villa
0-0 @ Everton
1-1 vs. Newcastle

1-0 vs. Swansea City
1-1 @ Sunderland
3-0 vs. Leicester City
1-4 @ Chelsea
1-0 vs. Arsenal
2-3 vs. West Bromwich

I suck.
