  4. P6

    I hope the sports media gets more on board with the AAC being justly considered a P6 conference. I think that is starting to happen, but the AAC needs to keep proving itself, on the field, by putting more distance away from the others. RealTimeRPI makes it pretty clear: NCAA Men's Football - Conference Rankings (2017-2018) Only games against Division I opponents are counted. Rankings update every 5 mins.

  5. I think it will be Houston, more time for the area buzz, we should be undefeated and Houston may have "value".
  6. Enters into the Top 10 with 13 Career Sacks. Needs two(2) more to be the Top DT. He's having a great Start to 2017.
  7. Re-shuffled USF o-line draws raves

    After months of mixing and matching, followed by a couple of games of trial and error, the Bulls finally appear to have found a solid starting five up front.After two games at right guard, the Bulls slid senior Cameron Ruff back to center -- where he started all 13 games last season -- and plugged in redshirt sophomore Billy Atterbury at guard. The result: 376 rushing yards and nine explosive plays (20-plus yards) in a 47-23 romp of Illinois.USF logged nine or more explosive plays only twice last season (Memphis, UCF)."The o-line performed extremely well," said senior RB Darius Tice, who finished with 105 yards on only 12 carries. "Many times I got the ball and wasn't getting touched 'til way down the field. Sometimes I'm running the ball and they're next to me, and I'm 20 yards down the field. ... They did a great job."The only glaring hiccups were some early penalties, with Atterbury getting whistled twice (for holding and a false start) in a three-play span in the first half. QB Quinton Flowers was sacked twice, but his 25 official carries were more than double any other player on the field."I feel like we did more finishing on blocks, but we still can finish more," senior LG Jeremi Hall said. "I just feel like we out-conditioned them really. We ran a lot of plays (98) and we just kept going. And none of us were really tired, we were just having fun." INJURY UPDATE: WR Deangelo Antoine, who had a career-best four catches against Illinois, suited up Tuesday but didn't practice, Coach Charlie Strong said. No other player appeared sidelined (i.e. on crutches, in a walking boot, etc.) during the session open to reporters."(Antoine) kind of ran around, just don't know where we are right now," Strong said. We've still got two days before we make that decision on whether he's gonna play or not." ODDS AND ENDS: Former Buccaneers Booger McFarland and Joey Galloway will share analyst duties on ESPN's broadcast Thursday. Dave Flemming will handle play-by-play and Laura Rutledge will work the sidelines. ... Count Darius Tice among those who believe USF's attendance will improve. "From this point going forward, I feel like it's only gonna get better because they came out and we put on a show," he said. Actual attendance for Friday's game was 27,619. ... Dominance factoid of the day -- USF has won 13 of its last 15 home games, with 12 of those victories coming by two or more touchdowns. ... USF's 88 first downs are tied for third nationally. ... DT Bruce Hector recorded his 13th career sack against Illinois, moving him into the program's top 10 in that category. AUDIBLE: "It was just one guy breaking down, a guy comes inside. Then the next one got blocked, and then after that we got it corrected. It's all fixable, so it's a matter of us just putting the right people out there and getting the right people in place, and those things won't happen." -- Strong on the two kicks (one PAT, one field goal) Illinois blocked in the first quarter Friday (Note: Temple has a nation-best 12 blocked kicks since the start of the 2015 season)
  8. After 3 games here are the rushing statistics for our Bulls: Tice - 256 QF - 243 DJ - 215 Sutton - 47 Antoine - 46 Sands - 43 MVS- 3
  9. 2018 SEC Schedule

    The SEC released its 2018 schedule on Tuesday. For those wanting to book hotels a year early, get after it. The team-by-team schedules are below. But first a few thoughts about next year’s schedule: The SEC formula: Why does the SEC usually have so many bowl eligible teams? Well, besides they have a lot of quality teams, they have mastered the best scheduling model in college football. All 14 schools have seven home games and 10 of the 14 only play four true road games plus one neutral site game; compared to other Power 5 schools that play five or six true road games. In 2018, only Mississippi State, Kentucky, South Carolina and Vanderbilt do not benefit from the seven- home, four-road and one-neutral game setup. Best neutral site non-conference game: Auburn vs. Washington in Atlanta. This is a rarity: a SEC/Pac-12 matchup. And I love it. If QB Jake Browning returns next season, the Huskies should again be a College Football Playoff contender. It will be Washington’s first SEC opponent since a 2012 visit to LSU and Auburn’s first Pac-12 foe since hosting Washington State in 2013. Best non-conference road game (excluding rivalry games UF/FSU, UGA/GT, USC/Clemson, UK/UL): Well, there are only four to chose from – Vanderbilt at Notre Dame, Arkansas State at Colorado State, Mississippi State at Kansas State and Missouri at Purdue. The winner? Vanderbilt at Notre Dame. It will be Vandy’s first game in South Bend since 1995. Make the trip, if you can, Commodore fans. Toughest schedule: Auburn. Start with the season opener against a likely Top 10 ranked Washington, a home date with LSU and road games at Mississippi State, Georgia and Alabama. Good luck, Gus. Easiest schedule: Kentucky. The non-conference schedule serves up three automatic wins: Central Michigan, Murray State and Middle Tennessee. The SEC portion is also favorable: Alabama and LSU are not on the schedule and the toughest road games are Florida, Texas A&M and Tennessee. Quirkiest schedule: Texas A&M opens the season with three consecutive home games and ends the season with three consecutive home games. In the seven weeks between from Sept. 22 and Nov. 3, the Aggies will play four road games, a neutral site contest and one home game. Honorary SEC members: Louisville, Colorado State, Middle Tennessee, UL Monroe and UL Lafayette. All five schools each play two SEC opponents. Louisville opens the season with Alabama and finishes with Kentucky. Colorado State, coached by former Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo, faces Arkansas and Florida in consecutive weeks. Taking them behind the woodshed week: In what’s become an annual tradition, the week before Thanksgiving features some major mismatches and next year is no different. On Nov. 17, it’s The Citadel at Alabama, Liberty at Auburn, Rice at LSU, Idaho at Florida, UMass at Georgia and UT Chattanooga at South Carolina. The Alabama Invitational/SEC title game is Dec. 1 in Atlanta.

GAME DAY vs Illinois After Hurricane Irma forced cancellation of the Bulls’ conference opener at UConn, USF returned to practice on Tuesday after four days off due to the storm. The Bulls enter Friday’s game with three days of preparation. BIG TEN: USF will take on its sixth Big Ten foe and first since falling, 35-17, at Maryland in 2015. This will be just the second visit by a Big Ten team to play USF. The Bulls fell to Maryland, 24-17, in 2014 at Raymond James Stadium. USF has also played Wisconsin (2014, L, 27-10), Michigan State (2013, L, 21-6) and Penn State (2005, L, 23-13). HOME SUCCESS: USF has won 12 of its last 14 home games, with 11 wins coming by two touchdowns or more. FLOWERS CLOSING ON RECORDS: Quinton Flowers is one rushing TD from the USF career record of 32 set by his former teammate and current Indianapolis Colt Marlon Mack (32). With 2,731 career rushing yards, Flowers stands second all-time at USF, 878 shy of Mack (3,609) and 216 shy of Tim Tebow (2,947) for the most ever by an FBS QB in the state of Florida. Flowers has 50 career TD passes, two behind Matt Grothe & B.J. Daniels (52) for second all-time at USF. The record is 67 by Marquel Blackwell (1999-2002). Flowers’ 22 career wins put him third all-time by a USF QB trailing only Grothe (28) and Blackwell (30).

    I just wanted to say ... I'm good with it. We were definitely vanilla the first couple weeks, but I think we've seen the offense released from their cage. No ******** from me about the offense this week.

  14. USF's Defensive Turnaround

    At last, Willie Taggart's weekly refrain about poor tackling and gap control no longer are audible.The buzz over the resurrection of the "Bull Shark" defense has drowned it out.After three games, USF ranks first in the American Athletic Conference (and 14th nationally) in run defense (89.3 ypg). This time last year, after three games against a similar level of competition (Towson, Northern Illinois, Syracuse), the Bulls ranked 10th in the league and 82nd in Division I (161.0 ypg)."It's just the energy and the will that we have on the defensive side," senior FS Tajee Fullwood said following Friday's 47-23 victory against Illinois, in which USF held the Illini to 67 rushing yards (45 on one play). Coach Charlie Strong suggests energy and pride have converged to spark the apparent resurgence. Fullwood is among seven senior first-teamers maligned almost weekly last season, when the Bulls surrendered 482 yards (nearly 200 on the ground) per game."It's a combination of both because Coach BJ (Brian Jean-Mary) is very aggressive, and he has a way of getting the players ready to go play," Strong said, referring to his defensive coordinator."You look at his defense, a lot of the players we have are older players. They've heard a lot about the defense and what they didn't do, and now they're just working hard and proving to everybody what they can do."The sturdiness doesn't stop with the run defense. The Bulls' eight interceptions are the second-most in the country, behind only Central Michigan (nine), and they rank 17th nationally in pass-efficiency defense (95.30). AND ABOUT THAT OFFENSE: Despite two shaky opening games and a flag-infested opening half Friday, USF's offensive numbers remain solid.USF is 13th nationally in rushing offense (281.3 ypg) and 14th in total offense (522.3). The passing numbers have taken a mild dip (241.0 ypg, 60th nationally), but the Bulls remain among 29 teams averaging 40 or more points a game. INJURY UPDATE: Strong said he expects to have everyone available for Thursday night's AAC opener against Temple, but said WR Deangelo Antoine didn't practice Monday morning. Antoine hobbled off the field in the second half and didn't return. Strong added WR Darnell Salomon, who didn't suit up against Illinois (unspecified reasons), will be available Thursday. ODDS AND ENDS: Actual attendance for Friday's game (per the Tampa Sports Authority) was 27,619. ... Fullwood ranks ninth nationally in punt returns (18.6 yards per attempt). ... Senior Jonathan Hernandez currently leads the AAC in punting (42.7 yards per attempt). ... Fourth-year junior WR Stanley Clerveaux's two catches (for 12 yards) Friday were one more than his career total entering the game. ... When asked Monday about the Bulls' 16 penalties against Illinois, Strong said, "It's more of just looking at 'em and make sure we play better football and be a better disciplined team. There's no reason for so many penalties."
  15. San Diego State

    I saw where someone posted the McMurphy tweet about San Diego State (and Memphis) being a leader for the G5 NY6 Bowl Spot. I thought that deserved its own thread. Anyway, I see a scenario where San Diego State will be ranked this week, not too far behind us. It is reasonable that SDSU will run the table. They play Boise State at home in 4 weeks and play at Air Force this weekend. The rest of the schedule should be fairly easy SDSU wins. SDSU has two P5 conference wins (Stanford and at Arizona State). The Mountain West is arguably more top heavy than the AAC. SDSU's division is garbage (even worse than the AAC East) and the play only Boise among decent teams in the other division. So, has USF lost the ability to control it's own destiny? If SDSU and USF both run the table which G5 Conference Champion will be ranked higher? Style points will mean everything from here going forward and USF has no margin for error.
  16. Illinois Game Video

    I had to edit 2 videos together since they switched networks but here is the full game.
  17. Like the rest of his peers, Quinton Flowers sputtered through the season's first eight quarters. Periodically, he was getting sacked -- and frustrated. His pocket wasn't moving, nor was the needle on his Heisman odds.And the grim presumption was, his already-remote chances to capture college football's most coveted individual prize had petered out before Labor Day.Then came Friday night, when a national TV audience saw Flowers, circa 2016. Seemingly suppressed in lackluster wins against San Jose State and Stony Brook, Flowers was unleashed in USF's 47-23 romp of Illinois. He improvised in the pocket, benefited from higher-percentage throws. He dashed, darted, dodged.And by the end of his 386-yard, five-touchdown night, he might -- just might -- have re-entered the Heisman discussion."I told the guys, 'I'm just gonna go out there and be myself, and just play like myself,'" Flowers said.He did it on a night when his team had the national spotlight all to itself. Fortunately, Heisman candidacy can be a fickle thing, and Heisman voters can possess short-term memories. Presume, for a moment, that Charlie Strong and offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert continue affording Flowers the latitude they gave him Friday. Such profusion could become a weekly occurrence, and suddenly Stony Brook falls farther into the recesses of the nation's consciousness. Granted, skepticism will remain over the quality of USF's schedule and the viability of a Group of Five player winning the Heisman.But the numbers -- and possibly an undefeated Bulls season -- will be too much to simply ignore."It's amazing because the guy can do so much, and he'll probably tell you he left a few yards out on the field," Strong said after Friday's game. "But if we can get those numbers and he can continue to improve, then we have a chance to really be a special team."And Flowers has a chance -- albeit a slim one -- to get to New York.
