  1. If there were a single coach that has excelled beyond his invested capital its Jose Fernandez. If the Men's BB head coach 'debacle' over the last decade has proven one thing, its this- Jose Fernandez should held onto with all of the university's capital we can spare- bringing this program up when he really wasn't supposed to be our coach, watching him bring us to this point as a commonly named, recognized program in the NCAA's- enough said. Jose Fernandez. Superb. For life. He's a true Bull. Thank you a million, Jose, for what you've done. 17 years. More than most of us have even considered giving to the University.

  3. OC Gilbert: 6 points in the last 50 minutes

    Weve scored in spite of GS, not due to him. Rest assured. Its like saying Trump had anything to do with the million people employed in his first 120 days in office. It preceeded him pal, not because of him. But nice try. This offense and the jobs were set in motion before Trump or Gilbert. Easy to grab your predecessors glory.

    Clever, however, FBS offensive rankings are a nice distraction and barely tell a chapter in the entire story. Winning 9 games against a net losing set of opponents makes the offensive rankings impotential and obsolete. I dont disagree Gilbert knows a lot of football. Id wager you many here would rather forget his style of football in spite of how much football he's forgotten. Id challege him to try and recall that part he's forgotten as perhaps its the better part.

    I dont agree. Perhaps its CCS's desire to go slow, Ill give you this, however, this doesnt mandate Gilbert to run the same dumb*** dive play on first down incessantly. We both know those two have at least one additional designed play that helps choke the offense. Sorry Im not biting. One thing we can agree on however is the a** whipping were about to get this week.

    Sterling Gilbert was a high school offensive coordinator a mere ~6 years ago at Lake View Texas High School. The guy is in WAY over his head as evidenced by his inability to adapt to virtually any college defensive adjustments. He is sipping from a fire hose in the college ranks and is sure to find himself coaching high school football very soon IMHO.
  7. OC Gilbert: 6 points in the last 50 minutes

    Sterling Gilbert literally was calling offensive play calls for Lake View High School in TX high school football a mere ~6 years ago. Is it any surprise these dive plays on 1st down are a standard part of the offense? The guy is over his head and frankly was promoted WAY too fast and now is sipping from a fire hose in the college ranks.
  8. CCS hates it here

    "Im hearing from a couple of friends?"...you sound like Jeff Session's friend, knight. ha you lose. go back to CFCC (Central Florida Community College)
  9. USF realignment "Rumors" "tweets" "etc"

    The timing of realignment as it relates to USF's performance is always an interesting topic to me. USF's attendance will never meaningfully recover until those in Tampa see USF play in a Power 5 conference. After all, the Tampa area is accustomed to high power NHL club, the Bucs and the MLB. Proof that USF's attendance will follow suit when were in a relevant conference is that attendance was good in the BE. Its not as if USF plays in Norman, Tuscaloosa, South Bend, et al or other quiet town. USF fortunately has the unique perspective of having been in a relevant league before with fans showing up as proof of concept for any P5 conference giving consideration to picking up a team or teams. I like the USF:UCF play and think we rise together when it matters. With the hot and cold performances each year by both teams, it poses to me the question whether a conference sees this and goes in for the long play, picking up both teams for both the TV exposure and the other great reasons to integrate them despite the hot and cold seasons. I believe they do. With Frost almost certainly leaving at the EOY and both teams in my mind being reliant on each others combined successes long terms, I hope that each has continued long term success. I believe they do.
  10. 9-1

    I love the optimism, though I just dont see it happening. The collective refusal to believe that what we've seen IS the actual offense, even on the cusp of playing the LAST regular game of the season is absolutely puzzling to me.
  11. Victory!

    Finally, we can reveal the playbook!!!! The suspense is killing me. (Smart a** font)
  12. OC Gilbert: 6 points in the last 50 minutes

    I like 9-1, but frankly with these performances and in the setting of 8 blocked punts, worst penalized team in CFB and the quality of play and coaching were a 3-7 against any moderately quality opponents this year. I believe it will reveal itself against the next 2-3 teams and most know this which is why they’re frustrated and where this is headed.
  13. Bright side?

    Joe, I think we both know that most are complaining because they know based on cotinued performances like last night that we have very small chance of winning against the very good teams we’ll face in the next 2-3 games (UCF, +\- Memphis and a Bowl). Their focused on the quality of play and not the net outcome. As you said, ‘sometimes football isn’t pretty’, or in the case of USF football this year, not a single games was even very good at all. 8 blocked punts, worst penalized team in CFB? C’mon there are rose colored glasses and then there’s refusing to recognize that the outcomes of the USF games this year are virtually secondary to shear athleticism and zero coaching. Oh, and I don’t care about how a few years ago and I don’t think most do on this board.
  14. Where are the ‘we’re keeping the playbook close to the chest’ clan. Strong is an old ball coach resistant to any adjustments. Pathetic. we get emberaased next week. Sad but true.
