Toledo HC Jason Candle received a new six-year contract that will keep him with the Rockets through 2023.

While the amount hasn't been announced yet, it's believed the new deal will make Candle the highest paid coach in the MAC. He was a hot name in the coaching market this year after leading Toledo to a MAC championship and an 11-2 record. The championship is the first time that they've won the conference since 2004. The Rockets have gone 21-6 under Candle's leadership since taking over in 2015.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline refers to Toledo junior edge rusher Olasunkanmi Adeniyi as "scheme-limited."

While Pauline questions Adeniyi's versatility and also his measurables, the analyst notes that the 6-foot-2, 250-pounder is "a natural pass rusher who quickly gets off the ball and shows the ability to bend off the edge." Pauline -- who believes that Adeniyi is worthy of a Day 2 selection -- reported earlier this week that the Toledo junior is currently leaning toward declaring for the draft.
Dec 7 - 6:04 PM

According to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, Toledo junior edge rusher Olasunkanmi Adeniyi is leaning towards entering the 2018 NFL Draft.

Adeniyi (6'2/250) has been one of the key reasons for Toledo winning the MAC championship, and finished his regular season with 8.5 sacks, 19.5 tackles for loss and 63 tackles; a very high number for an edge rusher. Pauline believes the biggest issue for the defender right now is his size -- his listed 6-foot-2 height might be a (severe) overestimation -- but still sees him being a 2nd or third-round selection if he does enter the draft.
Dec 4 - 6:40 PM

Toledo redshirt junior WR Jon'Vea Johnson caught 6 passes for 103 yards and a touchdown in the school's 45-28 win over Akron on Saturday to win the MAC title.

This was the second time Toledo faced Akron this season, and bother included 100 yard efforts by Johnson. The coaching carousel is not over, so Jason Candle could be on the move, but if he stays look for Jon'Vea and Diontae Johnson to post big seasons in 2018.
Dec 2 - 4:31 PM

Toledo sophomore WR Diontae Johnson caught nine passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 45-28 win over Akron to win the MAC title on Saturday.

Johnson's long reception went for 29 yards. It was an outstanding regular season for Diontae, one of the Johnson and Johnson receivers that tend to carry the school's passing attack. He made over 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns look easy.
Dec 2 - 4:21 PM

Toledo senior RB Terry Swanson racked up 180 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries in the school's 45-28 win over Akron on Saturday.

Swanson looked like Kareem Hunt on his 54-yard touchdown run, bursting through the defense and outrunning tacklers for the long score. Toledo won the MAC in this game and should be a stiff test for whatever team draws them during bowl season.
Dec 2 - 4:10 PM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 23 of 37 attempts for 307 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in the school's 45-28 win over Akron on Saturday.

This was absolute domination, as Toledo led 38-0 at one point. Woodside has generated buzz as a "game manager" prospect, so expect to see positive evaluations during the draft process that ultimately ends with a selection.
Dec 2 - 4:06 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline hears that if Toledo HC Jason Candle takes another job, redshirt junior WR Jon'Vea Johnson would consider declaring for the NFL Draft.

If Candle stays on with the Rockets, it would make Johnson more amenable to potentially returning for the 2018 season. The 6-foot, 183-pounder owns a 35-572-4 receiving line on the year. He posted a 40-773-10 line during a career-best 2016 season.
Nov 29 - 8:57 PM

Toledo senior RB Terry Swanson rushed for 94 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in Friday's 37-10 win over Western Michigan.

Swanson notched a 13-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter. The 5-foot-10, 205-pounder has been phenomenally consistent this season, surpassing 90 yards rushing in eight of his 11 games on the year. Seven of those contests have seen him over 100 yards on the ground. On the whole, the senior has rushed for 1,139 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Nov 24 - 3:19 PM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 19-of-29 passes for 300 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Friday's 37-10 win over Western Michigan.

Woodside did not throw for a touchdown in the first half, but came out of the locker room to fire off both of his scoring tosses on the afternoon. While the 6-foot-2, 210-pounder has cut down on turnovers this season -- he was picked off nine times a year ago, just three times thus far for the current campaign -- he has not been as prolific in terms of touchdown passes, as he's now up to 24. That's a respectable enough number, but pales in comparison to the 45 touchdown passes he put up last season.
Nov 24 - 3:01 PM

According to Toledo head coach Jason Candle, NFL scouts love senior QB Logan Woodside's "competitive nature, accuracy and decision making."

This is the third or fourth positive blurb we've written about Woodside in regards to his NFL future, but that is often a result of a 22 touchdown to two interception ratio. Expect to see Woodside at the Senior Bowl or East-West Shrine Game.

One scout told the Senior Bowl that Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside should be able to stick around the NFL as a backup.

"If Kellen Moore can hang around in the league, then so can he," the scout said. While that bar is low, the scout did have positive notes on Woodside's accuracy and competitiveness. Woodside has thrown 22 touchdowns compared to two interceptions this year.

Toledo sophomore WR Diontae Johnson caught three balls for 75 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's win over Bowling Green.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder has broken out in a huge way with former No. 1 WR Cody Thompson out. He's posted a jumbo 58-1078-10 receiving line through 11 games. The Rockets close out the regular season against Western Michigan next week.
Nov 17 - 12:46 PM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 13-for-18 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns in Wednesday's win over Bowling Green.

Just another day at the office for Woodside, one of the country's most underrated passers. He's thrown for 3,151 yards on 65.2-percent completions with a 22/2 TD/INT rate this year.
Nov 17 - 11:51 AM

Toledo senior RB Terry Swanson ran 23 times for 192 yards in Wednesday's blowout win over Bowling Green.

Once the game got out of hand in the second half, Swanson gave way to Shakif Seymour and Art Thompkins, who both also had strong statistical showings. The 5-foot-10, 205-pound Swanson had been questionable for this one after suffering a leg injury the week before against Ohio, but he looked no worse for the wear. The Rockets close out the regular season next week against Western Michigan.
