#37 Scrimmages


Recommended Posts

Hello Coaches!


Welcome to another Dev Diary for NewSim on SimFBA!


Last time, we talked about what kind of schemes you can choose for your teams and how you can call your plays, and now, we are going to talk about how you get to actually use the sim! That's right, scrimmages are back!


For now, while NewSim is still in Alpha, there are tons of tweaks that will need to be made (like there are not fumbles or penalties yet), and so the games that we play now won't actually count towards anything. They are just for funsies and testing purposes.


Now that all that is out of the way, let's talk about how you can actually submit to have your team play in a scrimmage!



  1. Agree with another coach on the site to play a scrimmage.
  2. One of the coaches go to this forum and submit a thread: 2021 Scrimmage Requests
  3. Threads here should have the following format:
    • Title: "Team A vs. Team B"
    • Body: "Team A challenges Team B to a scrimmage." (Something to that affect. BE SURE TO TAG THE OPPOSING COACH)

[*]Team B's coach should then respond to the thread with a confirmation of the challenge. ("Team B confirms", etc.)

[*]Once both coaches post, they can move on to the next step in the process.


  1. Create a copy of this Google Sheet: 2021 Depth Chart Template (DO NOT EDIT THIS SHEET DIRECTLY)
  2. Follow ALL of the instructions on the sheet.
  3. When you are finished, create a thread in the following forum: 2021 Scrimmage Depth Charts
  4. Threads here should have the following format:
    • Title: "Team A Depth Chart"
    • Body: Provide a valid link to your depth chart sheet.

[*]MAKE SURE TO GIVE AT LEAST VIEWER ACCESS TO ANYONE WHO HAS THE LINK. If you do not do this, I cannot actually pull the depth chart.


  1. Create a copy of this Google Sheet: 2021 Scrimmage Gameplans (DO NOT EDIT THIS SHEET DIRECTLY)
  2. Follow all of the instructions on the sheet.
  3. When you are finished, go to this link and submit the sharing link for your gameplan sheet: 2021 Scrimmage Gameplan Submission

When you have completed all of these steps, you're done! Then you just have to wait for me to get off my lazy butt and actually run the games! I probably won't have a set schedule to post the games. I'll just run them as I find time. So except an irregular posting schedule. Speaking of posting, here is the link to the forum where games will be posted while we are having scrimmages:


2021 Scrimmage Results


You should already see a couple of games there.


This is it guys! Games! From NewSim! New system and everything! All of these threads and submission forms are open and available now for you guys to start! If you have any questions about submitting things, depth chart, gameplan or thread formatting, go ahead and post them here. I'll get to them ASAP.


Until next time,




P.S. Once you submit your depth chart for a scrimmage, it can be pulled at any time. Therefore, your submission is considered FINAL whenever you post it.


EDIT: DO NOT just submit your old depth chart and gameplan. The templates have changed!

Washington State is looking for a challenger. Preferably one that meets the following criteria:


- Is a school located in the south

- specifically Texas

- has bears on their campus

- has a certain desire for drinking Dr. Pepper


if you meet this criteria, please reply. If not, I guess that’s okay too

Great question. Basically, the ones at the top will be pulled first for things like kick coverage, rushing punts, blocking for FGs, etc. So if you want a player to see the field more on special teams, put them higher. Usually the top 8 or so will see the field every special teams play.
