  1. Hello all, I am bored, tired of talking about the Big 12 and we are officially 1 week away from fall camp. I am known for keeping my green and gold goggles on so I shall break down why I feel we will win 8-10 games this year. I am sharing my views and will not go back and 4th on my opinion nor do I want to make any bets. If you feel we will have a bad year, feel free to express yourself and all power to you. If you have your goggles on, go ahead and say why. We can circle back to this thread after our awesome 2021 season. Go Bulls!!! Coaching staff: CJS has replaced 40 players and added new staff. I feel that Cam Aiken (RB), Bobby Bentley (WR & Passing Game Coordinator), Ernie Sims (LB), and AJ Artis (Strength & Conditioning) are awesome additions. Our biggest weakness last year was conditioning. I'm going to give an ex-SEC S&C coach the benefit of the doubt. Offense: QB - I’m good with Fortin, Williams, March, or McClain. They all shined at the spring game. RB - We have 7 running backs and 4 of them weigh 200Ibs or more. The other 3 have speed. O-line - This will be the most improved position. CJC and Jarren Williams both mentioned being impressed with the O-line in their most recent interviews. I stand by having 2-4 future NFL players on this line. They will provide much more time for the passing game and make some holes for our Running game. TE - We are deep. WR - Unproven but deep and have a lot of speed. Conclusion - Our offense is going to EXPLODE this year. We will be back to scoring at least 30 pts per game. Defense: I am banking on Glenn Spencer working the same magic he did at FAU. FAU had the 92nd ranked defense and in 2018, after his first year in 2019, they were the 40th ranked defense. I will write off his first year here as getting to know the players and restrictions from the pandemic. The players were out of shape and had no formal camp. This year he knows what he is working with and had a full spring and fall camp. We were 122nd ranked total defense last year. I feel if we get our total rankings in the “60s” we should be OK. Hell, if USF can get the total defense ranked in the low 70s, that should be good enough with the offense we have. Conditioning: This defensive line is pretty old. At this point, they should be at their “college physical peak” due to their ages. If Pickney and Kegler can get their strength up we should be ok. Besides Thad Magnum, our defenses weren’t strong enough to overcome their size. S&C coach Trumain Carroll left the team in pretty good shape right before he left for KSU. A.J Artis came in from Tennessee and should have this Defensive line “physically” ready. Transfers: Xander Yarborough and Jamari Stewart should be able to get us more sacks. I would still like another DT or DE transfer, but if these are the only 2 transfers we have to work with, I am good with them both. Jamari Stewart is a bit skinny, but I’m banking on him gaining some weight this off season. Below is my pre-fall camp depth chart....this is pretty much what we are working with this year: I copied this from ourlads.com Offense #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 QB Fortin, Cade RS JR/TR Williams, Jarren RS SO/TR Marsh, Katravis SO McClain, Timmy FR RB Joiner, Kelley JR Battie, Brian SO Felix, Darrian RS SR/TR (200Ibs) Mangham, Jaren JR/TR (200Ibs) Parker, Leonard RS SO (200Ibs) Hamilton, Mychael SO (200Ibs) Young, Yasias SO TE Brinkman, Mitchell GR/TR Carter, Chris RS JR Nance, Thomas RS SO Greenwald, Gunnar FR Willis, Holden SO Akepeu, Flaubert RS SO WR-X Weaver, Xavier JR Terry, Yusuf RS FR/TR Brown, Sincere SO Reynolds, Garret SO WR-Y Miller, Bryce RS SR/TR Dollison, Omarion SO Horn Jr., Jimmy FR Atkins, Sean RS SO Helms, Christian RS SO WR-Z Williams, Latrell RS SR/TR Berryhill, Logan RS SO Tshivuadi, Nickolas FR Cucci, Michael SO O-Line #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 LT Jennings, Donovan SR Blanchard, Joshua RS SO Reyes, Cesar SO LG Harris, Demetris RS SR Sainterling, Sebastian RS JR Bikowski, Remy SO/TR OC Cecil, Brad SR Hall, Dustyn RS SO Manconi, Patrick SO RG Wiggs, Michael GR Greene, Uriah SO McDuffie, Matthew RS SO RT Jacobs, Demontrey RS SR/TR Kilfoyl, Andrew FR Hopple, Jarrett GR/TR DEFENSE #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 DE Xander Yarborough Thaxton, Ryan RS SR/TR Kirby, Stacy RS JR Incoming Transfer Grant, Darrien RS SR NT Pinkney, Kelvin GR Green, Blake GR/TR Kegler, Kevin GR DT Mangum, Thad, GR/TR Yates, Rashawn SR Incoming Transfer TYRONE BARBER SR LEO Stewart, Jamari FR/TR Vaughn, Jason JR Logan, Tramel SO LE'VONTAE CAMIEL WLB Boyles, Dwayne SR Bellamy, Demaurez JR Harris, Mac SO Helton, Keyon RS JR Nash, Jamal SO/TR Hicks, Davon FR MLB Grier, Antonio SR Mims, Andrew RS SR Norris, Brian RS JR Copeland, Randal RS JR Gobler, Camp RS SO Ross, CJ FR CB Evans, Daquan JR Knox, Ben SO Ervil, Lubens SO/TR Nealy, Gabe FR Purcell, Bailey SO SS Robinson, TJ RS SO/TR Hill, Matthew RS SO/TR Curry, Jayden RS SO Smith, Jordan SL FS Jones II, Will RS FR/TR Davis, Vincent SR LaPointe, Mekhi RS SR Gentry, Cody SR Herring, Jalen FR CB Williams, Christian SO/TR Stokes, Jaelen FR Cromarty, Isaiah RS SR/TR Green, Joshua SR/TR STANLEY, DEQUAN FR STAR Townsel, Christopher SO Nichols, Brock GR/TR Turner, La'Javier SO SPECIAL TEAMS #1 #2 PT Stokes, Andrew FR Scribner, Kenny RS SO PK Shrader, Spencer JR Sackett, Jared SR/TR KO Shrader, Spencer JR LS Bernard, Bryce SO Deneen, Ian SR H Schneider, Trent GR/TR Stokes, Andrew FR PR Atkins, Sean RS SO Williams, Latrell RS SR/TR KR Dollison, Omarion SO Terry, Yusuf RS FR/TR

  2. The next person on here that has any real credibility will be the first. It's a freaking fan message board and there are all types of fans. If you don't like the glass half full talk, ignore it. Plenty of other threads in which to ***** and moan .... or start a glass half empty thread with the same type of breakdown he did.

  6. Haven't been out on a basketball court in probably 20 months or so. I walk the neighborhood to try to get in some steps but used to also go to the court and dribble a ball back and forth for 20 - 30 minutes making layups, short shots and working out to the foul line. Went out today to do it. Dribble left handed one way and layup with left hand and repeat in the other direction with my right. Same with shooting FTs. Probably missed 40 percent of my layups. At best made 3 in a row right handed FTs and 2 left handed. Then I buckled down to just shoot FTs at one end. Only made 4 of 10 LH and 6 of 10 RH. Can't ever remember not making 5 of 10. And then I had to hurry home to pee and wait for my Urologist to call back. 😢 Just trying to bring a smile to your ugly faces.

  8. Just got back from Boston so I will chime in late. I was at that first USF football game and took my father, who attended many a Bulls' game with me (football, basketball and baseball) right up until he passed away four years ago. He also had the distinction of attending the first-ever USF football game, the first-ever FSU football game and being named Hero of the Game at USF Military Appreciation night. Furthermore, he had three children and three grandchildren who attended USF. I miss him every day and especially on game days. Thanks Pop.

  10. I think that is the way most of us feel. College football is on the decline and this will accelerate its demise. I pretty much only follow and watch our team, take that from me and you can have it, Gave up the MLB and the NBA and don’t miss it at all and CFB will be next. It really isn’t sour grapes but more of I just won’t find it interesting enough to follow closely if at all.

  11. Every team in the Big 12 is working on an escape route. There is no doubt that not a single team in that conference is thinking about forming an American Athletic Conference II. Just GET OUT! It will be an interesting week to see who gets picked up and who does not. I assume Mr. Kelly is capitalizing on the moment to be sure any conference considering picking the meat off the bone in the B12 knows USF is available and may offer more long term. It's every man for himself as usual. We missed on that last time around, hopefully not this time. When the B12 leftovers are clear, then we'll see the pieces being picked up by the P6/G5...

  13. One of the best people I’ve ever been around in my life. Named my Pup I got in college after Keeley and my newer pup is named KJ for Keeley Jr, for him and my old pup. He was always a warrior and wanted the best, on and off the field.

  14. No three-point line when I played. And no dunking. We had to climb a ladder to get the ball out of the peach baskets nailed to the wall.

  15. My wife asks too but usually it’s something along the lines of “do we really have to go to a game again?” Or “can we turn this **** off? They are going to lose anyway”, so I guess the context of what they ask about is pretty important to if it’s great or not.

  20. I'd say 90% of people on here want nothing more than to be excited about a football team of ours. Actually, most of them would settle for not being repulsed by our team. "People" have done far more than their part for USF football over the years.

  23. Bologna!! UC, Memphis, ucf, and Houston to a degree, have done just fine and have elevated their brands in the AAC. We, due to poor management on several levels, have wasted our years and our brand has suffered. Q was on the cusp of taking us to the AAC championship game in 2017... who knows what would have happened had we won. The AAC is not our problem, we are our problem.

  25. I thought about paying a player for that purpose. Then I thought about how bad I think it is for college sports...(Maybe) Good for business, but bad for college sports. I guess I'd have to come to grips with being a hypocrite.

  29. From a USF/AAC perspective, I would think more chaos the better, so I’m hoping KU makes a move. If the little 8 hangs together, we need to mock and dismiss them as an inferior conference as much as we can, just like they did with the Big East back in the day.

  30. to state the obvious it is more important than ever to pony up and support USF regardless of performance. But if you are on page 2006 of this thread, you already knew that.

  35. I was the first to report when we ditched Skip Holtz in 2012, Harlan leaving for Utah and Coach Jeff Scott coming to USF. Sometimes deals fall through. There has always been smoke in what I’ve heard. This one the smoke is almost fire though 🔥. 🤘it looks good to be a bull right now! 🤘

  37. Agreed, this is either good or not a big deal, I like the shake up, get us in the big 12, what is left of it or not. We are still on the outside but at least with playoff expansion we have a path in either conference.

  40. Let's hear it! Mine: Bulls vs. Kentucky Wesleyan September 6, 1997 We've told some of these stories before, but what an experience this was. 49,212 in the house (without looking) and on their feet. It was surreal at first to see a USF Football team. And then we stampeded. I still remember leaving the stadium and feeling the excitement in my blood. I went with my soon to be wife, her parents and at least three others I worked with that were Auburn fans ( 😁 ) but were curious about the new local team - the Bulls. After that win, I would end up going to every game in that first season including all road games (from memory, The Citadel, WKU, Elon and Cumberland - as seen on the first 10 seasons video). Exciting times, no doubt.

  43. Guess if 4 wins it makes us a prediction buster....It's the coaches jobs this season to get their players to play up to the level needed. We can say they were CS players or FCS caliber players but, it's time to coach up. This season is on the coaches.....we shall see.
