  1. We all wish this would happen but until we can 'move the needle' for B12 or anybody (win big games, win championships, fill stadiums with fans) its not gonna happen. USF decided way to late in the game to get football and couldn't capitalize on the short time in the BE with limited success.
  2. I get that but a couple points. I assume with QF as a dark horse Heisman candidate he's going to play the majority of the snaps to get his stats up and get more attention. Second, even without seeing the 2017 team play yet, most reports indicate WR is very deep. Also, the coaches have said there is not much drop off in production for QB2/3. Of course that's not live action but this might be the most depth we have ever had on Offense and enough to crush most teams on the schedule in 2017. Improved Defense might also be a reason to take the pedal off the gas but unless we are winning by 21 with 5 min. left don't get cute and let up.
  3. WVU can't read the writing on the wall, but they sure as hell aren't a fit in any other conference. 1. Pour gas on couch 2. Light couch on fire 3. Drink moonshine in plastic cup 4. Kiss your relative 5. Repeat until you pass out
  4. Exactly, the Old Ball Coach, Jimmie Johnson, Dennis Erickson, etc. had no problem blowing people out to garner higher rankings to their schools. Didn't hurt any of them professionally, in fact it helped their careers as being offensive (no pun intended) mind. Dear Coach Strong, if you want to get a better job, get a raise, salvage your reputation, go out a winner, etc. blow out any team that can't stop your offense.
  5. Have read him being compared to Denard Robinson of Michigan coming out of college. Another incredible dual threat QB in college. Denard was drafted in 5th round of 2013 by JAX. He's listed as 6'0", 197lb and running a blistering 4.32. Denard is currently looking for a job. Not sure the Jags new how to use him. I could see QF as a very effective punt/kick returner and slot receiver in the pros. I could also see the Patriots drafting him.

    Here's to the "Grad Five" taking us to the Final Four next season.
  7. Would be a great hire: Joey Knight‏ @TBTimes_Bulls I've also heard Mark Gottfried's name floated for @USFMBB job (unsubstantiated), but bear in mind: Doug Woolard was his high school coach.

  8. OVERVIEW It was a major recruiting coup for USF to get the All-Florida star running back and safety to sign in Tampa. He hasn't let them down, becoming the school's all-time leading rusher and earning first-team All-American Athletic Conference nods in each of his three seasons with the Bulls. Mack led the AAC in rushing as a freshman (202-1,041, nine touchdowns) and sophomore (210-1,381, eight TDs). He finished fifth in the conference in 2016, but had only 174 carries for 1,187 yards and scored 15 times on the ground. Mack also had 63 catches for 485 yards and a score during his career while averaging over 100 rushing yards per game over his three seasons. ANALYSIS STRENGTHS Looks like he has ball bearings in his hips. Able to swivel in multiple directions. Can tilt and slalom around defenders on the second and third level and is able to string moves together. Has slippery feet and is hard to pin down when bouncing laterally. Runs with knee bend and his pad level is low at contact. Explosive burst carries him into his getaway gear. Able to run away from tacklers. Six of his fifteen touchdowns this year went for 43-plus yards. Always plays fast. Contain buster to the outside. Finds ways to slither out of tackles. Hands showed improvement as pass catcher. WEAKNESSES Runs with inconsistent power through contact. Will need to accelerate through contact on next level. Serial run bouncer. Too willing to make wild bounces to the furthest reaches of the perimeter if interior lanes are gummed up. Lacks a committed approach between the tackles. Feet start dancing if he doesn't see an early point of entry. On jet sweeps, he rarely looked to cut it downhill in space and defaulted to the wide track. Has a very poor fumble rate over this three years and has put the ball on the ground twelve times. Ducks head into traffic to finish rather than keeping eyes scanning. NFL COMPARISON Denard Robinson BOTTOM LINE Scat back with decent size and blazing getaway speed. Mack has plenty of wiggle to bounce from run lane to run lane and make tacklers miss, but he has a penchant for looking to break runs way outside when the interior becomes too trafficked and he won't be able to get away with that against NFL speed. Mack is a complementary runner who can hit big runs against defenses who have been worn down, but he needs to be matched with the right scheme in order to unlock his big-play potential. -Lance Zierlein
  9. Right now he's tied for 9th best RB. The great McCaffrey ran 4.49. Check out nfl.com/combine http://www.nfl.com/combine/top-performers#year=2017&workout=FORTY_YARD_DASH&position=QB-RB-WR-TE-S-DL-LB-CB-OL-SPEC
  10. Cook 4.5, Fornette 4.51, Elliot (2016) 4.47. I'd say pushing round 2.
  11. Could it be a walking/bicycle bridge from campus to University Mall which is going to be turned into a restaurant/bar entertainment mecca that rivals no other in college?
  12. Thinking P5/ESPN Mafia will continue to try everything in their power to keep AAC/G5 a distant second. When does ESPN stop showing/paying for G5 football to make up for the revenue shortfall? Does YouTube or whoever pay for G5 football to make up the revenue? Probably but they will have leverage to pay less since they are tossing G5 a life preserver. The comment about HD is big too. Pretty hard to watch non HD anymore unless you get a rush out of saving money watching blurry images. Bottom line stays the same: keep winning, playing exciting football to watch (ie offense) and win championships. Then hope a B12 or ACC school does something so scandalous to its players and or female students that a school finally gets a death penalty (as a result of a mountain of expensive lawsuits against school and NCAA) and USF is first in line to get back to the big boy table.
  13. Thought I read Atlanta has the most USF alumni outside of FL. Georgia is great recruiting territory for USF/AAC. It's the heart of SEC territory and could elevate exposure. Maybe even get a Bowl game at the new Mercedes Dome. So Piss and Hillfloppers don't fit the conference profile of many of the schools. Nothing is ideal but there is some potential upside if GA State was selected.
  14. Wonder if Reaves would have been arrested if he was pulled over in Tampa? The Taggart hire has quickly become quite problematic for the image of Oregon Football and Nike U. I wish him well but alumni and administration will not cut him any slack now. I would think he's in a zero tolerance situation right now, one more F-Up in the near term and he's toast.
  15. What about Bob Hoffman from Mercer? Has done some good things lately. http://mercerbears.com/coaches.aspx?rc=216&path=mbball
