It’s telling that they had to play at a baseball diamond. The Japanese take their baseball seriously. American football, maybe not as much.. yet. Thanks for the video link.

Tackling is atrocious, but I was surprised at some of the ability of the skill position players.

Just one of those schools plays in a division with 53 CFB teams. There appear to be hundreds of CFB teams in Japan.

This is a rabbit hole I'm unwilling to further follow, my mind is already completely blown.
Once, almost two decades ago, I served as a consultant for a couple weeks - as QB coach - for a high-school-age, American Football, Club team in Monterrey, Mexico.

Interesting. Never heard of this. One of the receivers went up and made a very quality catch in first half I saw. Glad people love college football and have their versions.... all over the globe. :) RTR

Hey CA. Here’s more info ;)


They have a P5 and G5 split. And the G5 don’t qualify for the post season. :)

UCF and Coastal should ask for admission

But they can play themselves up to a P5 :)
