It's getting close to that time of the year for the annual college football write-ups. Feel free to volunteer. Just reply to this thread with any team(s) you would like to write-up. Best practice for the write-ups is to wait until at least early August to start and as the month goes on the depth chart movement becomes more settled with fall camps ongoing. Of course some of the smaller schools can be done earlier just because this is always a pretty big project that takes up our free time and it's a small group of us doing the research and doing the write-ups. Also, if you do volunteer please reference the previous year's write up to capture the White starter count as we use it as a metric to track White starters going back 18 or so years now.

As usual I reserve Michigan for @Phall , Wisconsin for @Bucky and Iowa for myself.

Already getting to that time of year again. I’ll knock out Wisconsin and help out with some of the unwanted teams as others choose as they like!

I'll take care of Clemson and Wake Forest and I'm sure I'll get to others as well.

I'll do Pitt and Penn State again, and others time permitting. Every year I tell myself I'm going to get back into following college football more, but with what free time I have on weekends devoted first to the NFL, it still has yet to work out that way. . .

Michigan's non-conference opponents this year are powerhouses East Carolina, UNLV, and Bowling Green, so I'll be happy to write up what I learn is going on with them. I'd also like to write up Rutgers, Maryland (since that will only take about five seconds), Michigan State, and Ohio State unless someone here has a strong preference for them. Add UMass to my list as well, since I'll be hopeful for ol' Don Brown to turn things around there.

Also happy to write reprises for UCLA, USC, Washington State, Miami (FL), Miami (OH), Ohio, Toledo, Central Michigan, UConn, Liberty, Hawaii, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Temple, Army, Northern Illinois, UTEP, New Mexico State, Charlotte, Nevada, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Missouri. Maybe even some more as needed once the dust settles.

Thanks as always @Leonardfan for organizing this important project.

Count me in on a a bunch....I’ll take some white running back friendly teams, along with a few straggler teams no one wants because they’re not very lunch pail friendly......

@Phall thanks for volunteering for quite a large portion of the teams.

@Rocky B I'll see what I can do in terms of White friendly teams


I updated the list for both of you, also added a team for Bucky.

Just updated the assignment list. I know @Red Raider has taken care of the Big 12 so I will reserve the rest of those teams for him until he either confirms he wants them or we get into August without hearing from him.

Impressive how many are stepping up with so many teams! Trying to sift thru what's left...
I can take Louisiana Tech ; Stanford ; Arizona State ; Boise State;

If we don't hear from Red Raider by August....will gladly take TCU

Thanks Leonardfan for your dedication to the Yearly write up's!
I like how some posters take teams from their Regions..that's really cool!

Hey guys, life has gotten busy and I haven’t been on here in a while. Still following our guys as close as always! I’ll take the remainder of the Big 12 as I usually do, looking forward to seeing some new names this year.

Happy to do Utah as well, they have some exciting players that I’d love to write about.

All yours. Thanks!

It’s a shame this thread gets less action than the flat earth thread.

@Red Raider - I am going to give the new Big 12 teams to @Heralded_Defender as he volunteered for them prior to the conference changes. I had forgotten those were to take place this season. The rest of the Big 12 is all yours though - apologies for the screw up on my end.

All yours! I don't track FCS schools but I'm certainly not opposed to you doing some write-ups for them as well.
