    Bry, I don’t need you to agree with me all the time. I haven’t spent nearly as much time in this forum as a lot of you have. I’m just looking for a place to intelligently discuss USF athletics with other passionate fans, but I’ve been in and out over the years because the topics seem to get hijacked so often by the negative souls among us who don’t feel we can do anything right. I’ll agree that we haven’t had a lot of success and there has been mismanagement and bad decisions made along the way, but it sure would be nice to find a home online where there was some optimism and an urge to help get this thing on the right path. Too many times, I just run into a handful of single-agenda posters who turn every thread into a pissing and moaning contest. It sure doesn’t help us - especially Brad - attract new fans. I’ll be completely honest, a lot of the Bulls fans I hang with have told me they won’t come near here because their impression is that the forum is filled with nothing but “fans” who are unhappy, hyper-critical, unwelcoming and can’t stay on topic without inserting something negative. We should take a lesson from all the Clemson fans who came here to congratulate us on hiring Jeff Scott. I was so impressed with the universal class they showed. All I’m saying is, think before you post. You know who you are. It’s OK to be critical when deserved. It’s not OK to be critical just for the sake or to maintain some sort of persona you’ve created for yourself online. 1) Jim Leavitt is NEVER coming back 2) Brian Gregory deserves a significant leash to see what he can do 3) Jose Fernandez deserves a statue for where he’s brought that program - out of complete ashes 4) We’re in the AAC. It’s important for our future for us to become THE power in the league. The Big East BCS bid isn’t coming back.

    I am not going to lie, it does not sound good. I have a sneaky suspicion we will be ok this year and not near as bad as projected. We were so bad last year and many that did not follow us would simply assume we were devoid of talent, little did people know that we were simply poorly prepared and coached, we still have some athletes and just need someone to lead.

    Well, the AAC is really making some bold moves here After all, bringing cheerleaders and the band on the field is clearly a significantly higher risk than allowing 100+ athletes from different geographic regions engage in-close physical contact for 3 hours

    Charlie is the gift that keeps on giving. I will testify that I have seen every play over the past 3 years and there is literally no evidence of any coaching whatsoever so I feel confident we can beat this rap.

    Long time reader; first time poster, so be gentle with me...Had to speak out on this one, however. I live in Polk County, and heard J.D. speak once about FL Poly. He mentioned that instead of trying to re-create another UF look-a-like (and specially referred to USF as an example), he want to create a university focused on just science and technology. Really annoyed me that he considered USF to be a UF wannabe. The only thing that UF has on USF is a 100-year head start. He’s too arrogant to realize that Tampa is a better place for jobs, business opportunities and economic development than Gainesville, and that eventually USF will catch up and pass UF. FL Poly is so successful (sarcasm font) that some legislator filed a bill proposing that it be merged with UF in the last session. The Griffin family (for whom Ben Hill Stadium at UF is named) donated the land that eventually became Florida Gulf Coast University, but kept the land surrounding it for development. Guess Junior was trying to follow in grandpa’s footsteps... Go Bulls

    I've had a Bullspen tab open on my desktop browser for I don't know how many years. But think I'm closing it today. Maybe I'll check back if we play sports. I've said in the past we're all Bulls fans and I'd be happy to have a drink with any of you. Not feeling that right now. The selfishness demonstrated by some is incredible. I won't be reading responses so have at it and call me closed minded. But this is getting to be as stressful as watching the news. I've got a few phone numbers and/or emails of those of you I'd like to stay in touch with. Stay safe, be well and GO BULLS.

    Do some pregame wind sprints, scowl at the cameras, draw-up some offensive plays in the dirt, throw some nasty blitzes their way and pull off the upset!!!!!

    I know there’s a lot of doom and gloom in the preseason predictions, but I don’t think we’re in as rough shape as most people think. Yes, there are plenty of question marks, but let’s take a look at the offense. This group is much better stocked with athletes than what Taggart had when he took over from Skip. Holtz left Willie with a team void of any speed or depth. I don’t think that’s the case here: QB - ? But I like Noah Johnson and who’s to say McCloud won’t make a jump forward? Q was god awful in his one start as a freshman. Cade Fortin? Maybe. RB - Joiner and Ford are capable but small; Felix may be better than both with more size. And we haven’t seen RS-F Josh Berry yet, either. TE - Mathis and Brinkman are experienced and relatively proven. WR - No one has broken out, but this is Scott’s wheelhouse and there are athletes here who’ve played snaps: St. Felix, McDoom, Weaver, Miller; and some interesting others who could emerge: Latrell Williams, Jaquez Evans, Terrence Horne, RS-F Logan Berryhill OL - Three starters return - Jennings, Harris, Cecil - so you have to fill a couple holes and build depth. RS-F McDuffie, Blanchard and Hall were all decently regarded recruits and have the necessary size. Hopple and Wiggs are seniors who’ve seen snaps. I’m not saying this group is anywhere near Q, Marlon, MVS and Rodney Adams, et al, but it’s an interesting lot that a good coaching staff and scheme might turn into something salvageable. Add your thoughts.

    http://www.espn.com/espnradio/newyork/podcast/archive/_/id/20906724 https://espnpressroom.com/us/bios/anita-marks/ "Marks earned a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences degree in Communications from the University of South Florida." Surprised there's not more fanfare from Athletics around Anita as an esteemed alum. She has a weekly midday Sat/Sun live show on the largest ESPN Radio network, with national syndication, and often gets cover duty during week, along with latenight slots. Heard her rep USF on air live just today. Am i shocked by the lack of coverage or regard by USF marketing? Not at all. Gold standard for success in a male dominated sports media industry, or otherwise really.

    Again, despite the doom and gloom of the preseason predictions, I don’t think we are devoid of talent on the defense. Let’s take a look at the defense: DB - Obviously, this is the most experienced and highest-regarded unit on the team. Sails may be our best player overall and Hampton was our best corner heading into last season but struggled a bit. He needs to bounce back. If he does, we may have the two best CBs in the league. We have experienced safeties also in Roberts, Sanders and LaPointe - but I’d like to see us get bigger and more physical there. Interested to see RS-F Leonard Parker. He was a heck of a two-way player at Plant. LB - I think most of us like Boyles and Grier here. Mims probably isn’t a starter, but he provides good depth. Bellamy is also a solid depth guy and we add the Michigan grad transfer Gil here, too. Could probably use another guy to emerge here. DL - Although they’ve been up and down so far, Pinkney, Kegler and Green are experienced seniors inside at around 300 pounds. Barber and Yates have also seen plenty of snaps and we need to see what Waller will be. The ends are the biggest question marks on the defense, I think, but I’m eager to see Tennessee transfer Thaxton. What about Stacy Kirby? He was one of the top signees in the class two years ago. How about Jason Vaughn? He had some moments last year in limited time as a true freshman. Add your thoughts.

    With the imminent collapse of society at hand, I have decided to create a USF-themed basement bar and go out on top. What are some ideas you have seen? I am thinking to go with official USF green walls with some gold fixtures since it is a dark basement. The only other idea I have is to hang some merch up (Big East jersey or something). I got my OG iconic U mini helmet and little Notre Dame football. Then I am a bit out of ideas. I think I have already destroyed all my Skip Holtz cups as per the great purge. I have nothing else to do.. What kind of setups do you have? Note:NOT SO FLO or green helmets, you heathens! I am open to some legacy USF 90s colors since those were still in play when I started at USF.

    Come on man, this is the stuff right here. Puc seemed to be sincere...CR leaving is a really big deal. I feel like we need to try to sway him back. Lots of wisdom there, I have personally refined my views based on some of his points. Challenging me might be exhausting for him but it was effective and if the goal in the challenge was to sway, then mission accomplished. I am sad.

    I join you in the blissful, optimistic delusion that CJL will return and lead us back to the brink of greatness, finally completing the prophecy that was contained in the Book of Lee Roy.

    I know you will not likely see this, but take solace in the fact when those wanting to exercise their "freedoms" are presented with a cogent argument about wearing masks they either ignore it, try and make a joke, or put forth an ad hominem attack. Trolls are going to troll. They feed off of the negative reactions they get on social media. It's a pretty sad and pathetic existence if you ask me.

    We don't even know which Quaterback that CJS hates yet. Also, Puc and I will continue to make sure everyone knows how life would be much better if CJL was still around.

    But at least we let him coach his 3rd year so he could completely burn it down. It'd be stupid to fire him after his 2nd season when the program was already on fire and lost its last 6 games.

    I generally assume Puc is right and has the best arguments. If you're in favor of government locking us down and performing the massive wealth transfer that they did, then obviously propaganda works for you. Avoiding / dealing with a virus is a personal responsibility

    The Charlie Strong after-affect will be on full display this year. My only expectations for this season is to see improvement from week to week, and actually looking competent and prepared out there. Play as many young guys as possible, keep recruiting at a high level, and keep looking ahead to what hopefully is a very bright future.

    It has always been the goal to use this site to help drive interest in the USF programs. I hope all of our members will adopt that goal as well.

    So I make a post urging you all to give to the current campaign and it turns into a thread about the relative value of USF sports and the failures of its athletic administration. Don’t complicate things. If you can afford to give a few bucks and haven’t done so already, go ahead and do it and invest in the FUTURE of the program. The Bullspen: Moaners Unite! I think we have us a new slogan.
