I don't know quite where I going with the concept but I like the story thus far. If anybody has any ideas for me graphic wise or story wise please let me know... I am still very green when it comes to this, but I figured I'd give it a shot. Don't rake me over the coal to bad please! Pro football comes to Orlando! By Rich Garrett Orlando Tribune 4:24 p.m. EDT, March 13, 2014 ORLANDO — It's been announced that current Luchtvaart Aerospace Software © and Aero Barrage Magazine © founder, Michael Myers, has been awarded a pro football franchise. The former Northrop Grumman Vice President said Tuesday, "This has been a dream of mine for quite sometime! I grew up a vivid football fan, and now I think I've reached the ultimate moment in fandom." Myers stated that the team has already reached a deal with City of Orlando and Orlando Venues to have the team play at the newly renovated Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium. Myers stated that they still need to make some renovations to the adjacent Tinker Field. "We plan on demolishing the current Tinker Field press box and stands and build an all new team facility where we will house our coaching staff, and support staff offices, as well as, a state of the art training and weight room for the players. We will convert the current Tinker field playing surface into a practice field for the team" Said Myers, on Tuesday. As for logos and team colors, Myers stated that they would play homage to the "first pro football team in Orlando" the Orlando Breakers, of the hit 1989-1997 TV show "Coach." As for logos, Myers was undecided as of yet. "We're reaching out to various design firms to see what comes about, as of now." One thing is for sure football is back in "The City Beautiful"!

By Rich Garrett Orlando Tribune 2:21 p.m. EDT, April 10, 2014 ORLANDO — "Bring in" was more like "Break in" on Thursday afternoon at the Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium. As new team owner Micheal Myers announced that the new team would indeed be named the Orlando Breakers! Myers, reached out to Barry Kemp the creator and producer the hit ABC series "Coach" about using "Orlando's first football team" as the identity for well...Orlando's first football team. Myers, the current Luchtvaart Aerospace Software © CEO stated, "Mr. Kemp has been wonderful and generous throughout this whole process, and we appreciate his cooperation with us". Not long after that Myers contacted New Orleans real estate mogul Joseph Canizaro. Canizaro was taken aback by Myers call, but entertained him nonetheless. It was then that Myers informed him of the reasoning for contacting him. " I informed him that as young kid, the first football game I attended was a Boston Breakers game. By that time Mr. Canizaro immediately knew what I wanted to do". What Myers wanted to do was get the blessing to purchase the trademarks to the former USFL Breakers franchise. And Canizaro gave him just that. "I was thrilled he asked for my permission" Canizaro said on Thursday via phone. The Breakers will use the "Coach" TV Series colors as their primary and use the USFL team colors for throwbacks and other special occasions. You can visit the Citrus Bowl stadium on Friday at 8PM for the special public unveiling. There you can purchase items with both the new, and throwback Breakers logo.

While there is a current season thread, there needs to be one regarding coaching changes here plus to discuss how long does a coach need to succeed. There are seven FBS openings already and since the 2008-09 season there have been an average of 24 head coaching changes per year at the FBS level (firing, retiring, taking another job). This thread is an attempt to track these changes. After the 2008 season: 22 coaching changes. Seven of those new hires are already gone (1 retire, 2 firings, 4 took other jobs). After the 2009 season: 23 coaching changes. Five already fired and one other (Vandy) was an interim coach at the start of the season. After the 2010 season: 24 coaching changes. Two coaches were interim (tOSU and UNC) and one already took another job (Ark. State) After the 2011 season: 27 coaching changes with John L. Smith already ruled out as the permanent coach. The current openings are (former coach in italics). New coaches in bold. Arkansas: John L.

Fleck [hired 12/17] Wisconsin: Bret Bielema [hired by Arkansas 12/4]------->Gary Andersen [hired 12/20] If you think a coach is on the hot seat, list it. IMO, the list of to be fired coaches include: Eastern Michigan: Ron English (10-38 in four seasons) New Mexico State: DeWayne Walker (career 10-39 in four seasons) South Florida: Skip Holtz (team has not improved) Southern Miss : Ellis Johnson (in a season, they went from 12-wins to 0-12) UNLV: Bobby Hauck (a late night loss @ Hawaii will make him 6-32 in three seasons) USC: Lane Kiffin (AD Pat Haden said after the UCLA game that Kiffin would return, but after losing to ND he may have his voicemail full and the bigger question is who to replace him) Washington: Steve Sarkisian (took over a o-11 team, but he is just 26-24 in four years going into a new Husky Stadium. They thought he would be better and spent $$$ for higher priced assistants and lost to a 2-win Wazzu.) Wyoming: Dave Christensen (22-27 in four years and his tirade after the Air Force game didn't help)
