  2. Bulls AD Harlan About to Sign an Extension

    1. Unless every AD has to have "greater" success than the one before him, I'd say Harlan is doing just fine here. Football has had it's two best seasons under his watch W/L. Only two ranked finishes. Other sports seem to be doing the same or better. Basketball is still a dumpster fire, so it's not like he's doing worse. 2. COA wasn't a bad hire, just a bad result. We can only get two kinds of coaches. Retreads or up and comers. Up and comers carry risk, retreads you get what you pay for. We did the up and comer and it blew up, but I can't say he made a bad hire. If you want to pin the Masiello fiasco on him, I guess that's a thing, But it's not like he showed up and declared, "Mark don't do background checks, bitches!" He probably followed the exact same protocol UCLA did and USF did before him. They found a guy, interviewed, threw some numbers around, worker out the specifics, then did their background check and it bit us on the ass. He did what 99.99% of employers do and we caught it in time. Other hires, look to be fine. No complains about Mohl and Butehorn. Points off for the result of xCOA, but the hire I can't knock. I like Gregory so far. 3. Facilities are looking like they're on the upswing if the IPF pans out and OCS seems to be on some sort of track. 4. Definitely. 5. Attendance sucks, but if the facilities pan out, fundraising seems to be in order. 6. Unless there's someone ahead of us I don't know about, we're in as good a shape as anyone else in the minors. 7. Football scheduling doesn't look to good and I don't like it, but I don't know how much that's him and how much football scheduling has changed. 8. If Vinik counts as relationships, he's good here. 9. Don't really know how to gauge this. I live in Tampa and have employment ties to USF, so I never feel like I'm out of the loop, but others disagree. Our media seems appropriate for where we are. So to answer your later question... 4, 3, 4, 5, 4, 4, 3, 4, 4 - 35/45
  3. Mons Venus? Yeah. No, I mean.

  6. ESPN Top 100 NFL Draft Prospects

    The real deal.
  7. Okay, we use a typical 1-5 rating system with 5 being superior. Perfect score is 45 points - how many points in your assessment, does AD Harlan earn?

  9. htqtp://www.espn.com/nfl/draft2018/story/_/id/23201964/2018-nfl-draft-jeff-legwold-ranking-top-100-prospects-picks We got 1 in the top 100. 80. Deadrin Senat, DT, South Florida, 6-0, 314 (5.16) Senat elevated his standing with his pre-draft work, including practices for the East-West game. He closed out the 2017 season with 59 tackles over the last eight games and had three sacks in the Birmingham Bowl

    So, not only are we good enough for our coaches to be taken, they want to take our ADs too? But, we don't belong?
  11. Why is the USF beat writer . . .

    I think it's more than a feeling...
  12. Yesterday
  13. Why is the USF beat writer . . .

    I sometimes get the feeling he’s gotten to the point where he’s just trolling the whole fan base because it gets people stirred up and drives more clicks. I don’t think he truly enjoys covering the team even the slightest bit and merely does it because it gives him a weekly paycheck.
  14. Your trap didn't stay zipped long...;)

    It gets worse:
