  3. You don't have to be a soccer fan to support the Bulls. I don't really care for softball but if the Bulls are playing, I'm in. Capisce?

  4. Tackling is definitely a BIG part of it but the passive scheme is a much bigger factor IMO. I think with the scheme being so passive it's made the players much less aggressive and more reactive. I think that's a big factor with players not playing down hill and and getting to the ball carrier and delivering a blow.

  6. Just looking over the numbers and I am flat BLOWN AWAY about the progression. Just take the TD count. 2013: 11 total Offensive TD's (WTF) 2014: 22 total Offensive TD's 2015: 54 total Offensive TD's 2016: 58 total Offensive TD's so far Rushing: 2013:1064 yds 2014: 1295 yds 2015: 3205 yds (13 games) 2016: 2872 yds so far (10 games) Passing: 2013: 2002 yds 2014: 2361 yds 2015: 2536 yds (13 games) 2016: 2333 yds so far (10 games) This type of transformation is amazing...we have such amazing weapons on this team...

  7. QF continues to get much deserved respect for all that he has been able to accomplish this year. Would be nice to see him get some recognition in regards to making a case for the Heisman, but seems like a long shot at this point.

  14. I read that as "Be at Temple" Which combined with the fact that the Temple helmet is on the right side makes me think it is a Temple home game. But it's at Tulane which is the only hope Tulane has. Temple guys break curfew, get sloshed and play hungover.

  18. I must have missed another post because I can't/won't believe no one has said a word about the Men's soccer team being in the NCAA tourney (there is only 48 teams) ......and a very interesting 1st round against FGCU @ Corbett. The Bulls lost to FGCU 3-2 in Ft. Myers earlier this year so a revenge game? Can we get a few folks out there to cheer on a team that is, in theory, 6 wins away from a national championship? It's only 6 bucks, no one really works on Friday anyway.....who knows what could happen?

  24. We now have a better trainer who was previously at WVU. I know that WVU took great pride in their training program and made it a point to have current players beat the records of those who came before. It seems like we are well on the road to building back the strength and conditioning which was such a big part of the Leavitt years. I think the defense needs another year to build up their bodies to get where it can play at an acceptable level. This is a good article about that from the Oracle: Bulls bulk up for title run By Vinnie Portell, SPORTS EDITOR On November 9, 2016 Upon taking over as head coach of USF football in 2013, Willie Taggart was far from impressed with the fitness and strength of the team he inherited. “When you have me benching more than some guys, then we’ve got issues,” Taggart said at an offseason tour stop in 2014. “Player development was not where it needed to be.” After the Bulls won only two games in 2013, Taggart fired former strength and conditioning coach Hans Straub after he sent out a tweet that criticized the San Francisco 49ers for drafting former USF defensive end Aaron Lynch. With a void on the staff, Taggart quickly hired former West Virginia strength and conditioning coach Irele Oderinde, who played under Taggart as a defensive lineman at Western Kentucky. “We needed to get stronger and we still need to get stronger,” Oderinde said. “By no means are we where we want to be, but when I got here, our overall strength was definitely one of the things that we needed. We needed strength. We needed a purpose, attitude, confidence. There was a lot we needed to develop.” The strength the Bulls have added since Oderinde’s arrival in 2014 has gone hand-in-hand with USF’s turnaround from a team at the bottom of the AAC to one that’s in the midst of playing for a conference championship. Several Bulls have added significant weight since just last season, with 11 players gaining at least 10 pounds over the offseason. As a unit, the average weight for a starter on the offensive line has jumped from 308 to 317 pounds since 2014, aiding in the protection of quarterback Quinton Flowers and the Bulls’ potent rushing attack of Marlon Mack and D’Ernest Johnson. One of those lineman who’s made strides in the weight room since Oderinde was hired is the 6-foot-1, 330-pound senior Dominique Threatt, who tied former defensive lineman Todd Chandler’s school-record squat of 700 pounds this summer. “I’ve improved a lot,” Threatt said. “When I first came in, I had high school strength. Now I actually have power. I can show it on the field. “Squatting 700 pounds (has been my biggest accomplishment). I was kind of skeptical going in, but when I did it, I did it kind of easy so it made me think I should have done more, but safety comes first.” Senior defensive tackle Daniel Awoleke, who earned a scholarship last season after playing as a walk-on, said he’s been stronger than his peers since middle school, but has had to work harder than ever before in the weight room since coming to USF. “Around sixth or seventh grade, I was a lot heavier than the other guys,” the 6-foot-5, 295-pound Awoleke said. “I would just dominate them completely because I was a lot bigger than them. I played defensive line and I had a whole bunch of tackles and sacks, it was so easy for me to get back there. “My strength has grown tremendously since coming here, it was a big jump. But it’s taken a lot of work over the years. It’s easier for me to control guys as far as the offensive lineman. When I get my hands on them, it’s real easy for me to get off them and shake them off. I can basically throw them around.” The senior defensive tackle added 12 pounds over the offseason and now benches 475 pounds, 50 pounds more than the next closest Bull. Through nine games in 2016, Awoleke is having his best year at USF with 22 tackles, including two tackles for loss, a sack and a forced fumble. When it comes to the strongest players on the team, Threatt and Awoleke point to the guys playing in the trenches. “You have Deadrin (Senat), you have Gonzo (Marlin Gonzalez), you have me, you have Kofi (Amichia),” Threatt said. “The running backs can even get down in the weight room too.” Awoleke agreed, pointing to Senat as the toughest guy on the field. “Deadrin and Gonzo, those are two guys who are really strong, man,” Awoleke said. “Also Cecil (Cherry). He’s so strong for his size, he’s a really strong linebacker. But Deadrin’s just a dog, he’s so stout, so strong. It’s hard to move him. You think twice about going against him.” Since the hiring of Oderinde in the summer of 2014, the Bulls have gone from a two-win team to one that’s won seven of nine in 2016 with a chance to challenge the best record in school history since they went 9-2 in 2002. “Ah man, it’s the fight,” Awoleke said. “From spring, through the summer training, it’s just remembering that we put the work in, and we’ve done what we need to do as a group. We’ve done a real good job to be 7-2, we just have to keep it up so we can end up on top.” http://www.usforacle.com/news/view.php/1025781/Bulls-bulk-up-for-title-run

  27. To be honest, your pre-emptive lectures on how we should NOT post in threads you create are annoying as ****. They almost make me care less about sports outside of football. I'm not into ignoring people on this site, but I'd sooner ignore you over Ned based on the posts above. I'm sorry you don't get enough satisfaction in responses to your posts and your USF superfandom is not matched on here, but perhaps it hasn't occurred to you that your contemptuous, holier-than-thou attitude might drive people away. Hopefully this post serves its purpose and you can check your attitude at the TBP login screen.

  32. Agree, deserved. Much flak as he gets on his passing, I just have a feeling we're all going to look back at his time at USF and wonder why he wasn't praised more often. He's a beast, and definitely proving it with the numbers.

  34. My question to you all is simple, when does the professor stop recieving credit for your work? If you were taught by someone who is considered to be a master in your field, when you go on to be highly successful, people may mention that they taught you, but they don't give them 100% credit. It's time that y'all give Coach Taggart the credit and lip service he deserves. Joe Kinnan has mentored and advised quite a few programs, but I don't see anyone else putting up our numbers... Some people even suggested that when the other offensive coordinator hit the road, our offense was going to regress. As the numbers show, it's only getting better. So go ahead and come off the fence and give Coach T the credit he deserves. No back handed compliments saying "I credit him for realizing his original idea wasn't going to work. " He deserves a full hearted endorsement, if the record doesn't warrant it, the stats do. Because if it was just the level of competition, EVERYONE in the American would be doing it. Especially UCIF with their Florida speed...

  37. Sorry. That kinda pizzes me off. The fact that he can't be included with all outstanding athletes and is the best of the leftovers... Just rubs me the wrong way. He's a beast and should be respected with the rest in college football.

  41. Im just happy if the Bulls get to a bowl game and play a P5 team not named Syracuse. Not sure why everybody is so picky now lol Hell I just want USF to freaking win their bowl game period. Last year left a bad taste in my mouth.

  42. I believe there is a moratorium on new bowl games until 2020. We are contractually locked in to our bowl lineup through 2019. Pretty much all bowl games will be up for grabs beginning in 2020. However, if we don't have improved attendance, then we won't be in a position to get better games. We need to have an AAC rep in the NY6 bowl 3 of the next 4 years so that we can truly make the argument that we are P6. USF will have an excellent opportunity to be that team next season as we return virtually everyone (sans Nigel Harris and Rodney Adams) and our schedule is as weak as Western Michigan and SDSU's schedules are this season. Anything more than 1 loss next year will be a terrible disappointment and I am honestly expecting an undefeated season.

  43. I'm cheering for Houston over Louisville for sure. A conference mate beating the #3 team in the country goes a lot further in getting the conference recognized than the one spot we give up to them. Also UConn over BC. This all helps perception, and SoS
