  1. Starting pitchers have been lights out to start the season. Could be a really good year if they can keep it up.
  2. Fun team to watch with good offensive potential. Will definitely be checking out more games this year!
  3. Did we just become best friends??
  4. 1. Happy it's Trump or wanted Clinton? Definitely not happy about Trump, but didn't want Clinton even more. 2. January 20, 2017 or February 1, 2017 ? What happened on Jan 20??? 3. Will Football win AAC Title in 2017? Yea bro. QF is gonna go out and take it and put us on the map for decades. 4. Your activity during the football off season? Getting married! 5. Favorite Rock Bands? Old school Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Moody Blues, Pink Floyd. Modern day Silversun Pickups, Muse, Tool, Disturbed, Flogging Molly. Go Bulls!
  5. That Rutgers game is the only game in any sport that I feel comfortable complaining about the refs.
  6. True that man. Both teams were special for us for different reasons. My answer to the question is this year's team, mostly because of how they rebounded from the awfulness of 2011-14. And a lot of what makes THAT so special is what the '07 team did.
  7. Totally agree!! You could see it more his freshman year, that Le'veon Bell-like vision and patience. Us transitioning into the Gulf Coast offense definitely limited his carries, so this wasn't exposed as much...but could be a great thing for his long-term pro prospects.
  8. Not given good advice? The advice he got was from people closer to the situation than you or I ever will be...as in his family, coaches, scouts, etc. This isn't some NBA hopeful who drops out of school a year early only because he wants to get paid earlier. It's a running back - the position with the shortest shelf life in all of pro sports. Who knows what would've happened next season with this team or his health? Add in the fact that he grew up in a family that wasn't as privileged as 99% of this board and the decision was probably rather easy for him. If Marlon puts on a little muscle, which he will, watch out. Would love to see the Bucs snag him in round 4-5 but as long as he lands in the right situation, I really think he could be one of the better rookies next season. He's got the complete skill set you look for in a feature back.
  9. Role player? This makes it sound like they're projecting him as a 3rd down back-type, which he's not. Dude has the prototypical size, speed, and running style for a feature NFL back. Maybe put on a few pounds of muscle. When I see him, the runner I'm instantly reminded of is Le'veon Bell. He's got a little bit of his patience too.
  10. His bias on a number of things, not just against the Bulls, has started to come through so blatantly that it's cringe-worthy. Like he's becoming the Berman of TB sports radio who is just hanging onto his job for seniority reasons. And then you have JP Peterson and his awful FSU homerism before him. Pandora is certainly my savior after Ronnie & T Kras!
  11. Being top 25 at the start of next season, with a Heisman hopeful, will be awesome regardless of where they put us at the end of this season. And don't forget we open our season a week earlier than 95% of teams next year...extra exposure when everyone is thirsty for football to start
  12. Strong wanted a larger assistant pool and took less money early on because of it. It will rival P5 schools in a couple years, footnfan1. Great sign that he really wants to build something long term here.
  13. Yea of course we wouldn't, but can you recall a USF defense as bad as ours this year? We have 12+ wins with even a decent D this year, which we've usually had. Q and Mack are once-in-a-decade players but our D was also once-in-a-decade bad this year. My point is Strong will fix that and the offensive recruits aren't going anywhere.
  14. That and I think Q realistically put himself in the preseason Heisman talk with his performance today. All great news for us in the grand scheme
  15. ...and it's double digit wins every season. In our sorry conference and with coach Strong coming in, there's no reason to believe we shouldn't get there consistently. Our defensive recruits will absolutely get better, and there are more than enough athletes in FL to keep the offensive talent coming in. And if Q can keep dropping dimes like he did today, next season could be super special. On another note Wilcox is a beast but he needs to stop turning it over at bad times. Anyways go Bulls!!! And great job coach Weist!
