    Rebuilding year or not-- CCS actions are not endearing him to me. Look-- we got him at a discount to try out and as a filler after we lost CWT to Oregon. That temporary fill in time has expired and if we act with a little bit of speed, we can cut him and his lackluster staff loose, allowing us to be the first ones to the table to pick up on the best candidates that we can afford. There is rebuilding and then there is just plain lack of any visible progress. We have eyes-- we have watched this team simply implode. Do something proactive.

    based on the background information this poster (gatorBull325) gave before-- I don't understand why they are laughing at us saying CCS will get fired since their understanding of football seems exceedingly limited in the first place. I mean-- they picked a team based on having fellow Haitians on the team? My guess is they cannot understand how a "winning" coach can be fired. Easy-- stop performing and meeting expectations. Both of those boxes are checked for CCS.

    The idea that we’re firing Strong is comical. We knew this would be a rebuilding year. Let’s see how 2019 goes. Realistically, 2020 might be in the table unless it all goes to hell. I support Strong!

    I saw one UCF fan punch a baby, while another pushed an old lady to the ground and then a third say that Publix subs were trash and that they preferred Blimpie.

    Not a bad word heard, but frankly, they were there in huge numbers and had no doubt they would lose. No one wants to come into a Ray Jay, smoke our Bulls, then get their ace kicked by popping off at the mouth. They came, drank beer & bought concessions...so hopefully while pooping on us, we made some $$ on them. As they pulled away, they went into full party mode. I left with 8 left, which I NEVER do, but it was obvious we had no fight left. On the upside, it was my friend's (from 1st grade, also an alum) bday. He & his wife joined us at the game, and we hit a cool Lebanese restaurant in SoTampa and enjoy a great meal & drank a bit to numb that result. Thankfully no UCFers stumbled in. The game sucked so bad, but I was reminded there are other things in life that I need to focus on, or it's gonna be a rough few years.

    some of y'all think he's actually a good coach... which he's not. He's clueless and unaware during games and gives zero fks about USF. I for one think he lack the acumen necessary to be a successful head coach.

    Who honestly cares what people think? I really doubt any good candidate wouldn’t see why he was fired. He has underachieved and things aren’t trending in the right direction. Also he should be fired for his press conference answers. He doesn’t want to be here, so show him the door.

    Exactly. Woolard was supposedly horrible but had hired Heath and Taggart and got facilities built. Even Harlan, who I am not a fan of, hired Kingston for baseball and he may have hired Steve Bradley for golf and MBB's Brian Gregory. But he did hire Orlando which turned out poorly. Holtz and Strong didn't work out but it doesn't mean they were bad hires. Holtz and a good track record coming in and many people thought that Strong just wasn't a good fit at Texas. And, if you believe some stories, it was Taggart that contacted Strong about the job being open. We, as fans, want to win and win now. So we just trash everything about someone. I guess on a board like this that kind of stuff happens.

    This line of thinking by Charlie ignores the fact that his style of coaching is ineffective. The same team starts winning under a different coach-- that is on the coach. I assume Kelly knows football -- and in that, he has eyes and has watched how this team has been coached. That alone is enough to tell him-- hey, something is simply not working here. Charlie will probably argue that the blame should fall on his OC Gilbert - mostly in a move to save being fired and reaping another years payday. I say squash that, take advantage of our buyout situation that clearly favors USF, and use the money you didn't waste (unlike the silly Skip extension) on your next staff. What is the worst that can happen? I mean-- the way the team is playing it would be difficult to go backwards (other than our exaggerated record which does not tell the whole story). Early in the season, I was hoping the naysayers were just over reacting. I was giving the team the benefit of the whole rebuilding year concept. But comments made, overall performance, lack of any improvement, stubbornly sticking to a non-working game plan and ignoring the failure of his own OC tells me we are only seeing the surface of the problem. I suspect there is more wrong that we cannot see. SO the best move based on that-- is to move on with a new staff and energy level that gives the team and the fans something to look forward to. I don't hate Charlie-- this isn't some personal vendetta. I was all on board with hoping he succeeded. He did not and there are consequences. He himself said 7-6 would not cut it here at USF. I am not in favor of waiting to watch him lose another game to pull the trigger. Cutr him loose now, save the money, give the new staff a bit of time to recruit and work with the team (if possible), and let's get on with it. The experiment is over.

    I think he is lucky he kept the leg. I have never seen such pessimistic reporting on a leg injury before. Unless its a long con to set up a "comeback story" two years from now... even someone cynical like me has trouble believing that. And the sick fucks at ESPN report on whats important, noting the playoff committee has "taken the injury into account" when deciding the final 4.

    If we had anything that resembled an offense this year we would have at least 10 wins. We had a down year on defense but wasn’t nearly as bad, or misutilized, as the offense.

    Just listened to QF talk about hearing what ccs said in the press conference and he was PISSED. He also implied that the alumni needs to step up its support or this will continue. Seeing how upset the former players are should be a sign to Kelly to fire ccs. QF talked about how all these guys go out and do what the coaches tell them to do. They are not showcasing the talents our team has. He mentioned the coaches say stuff like “we will get them next year” and how many of the players don’t have a next year. Coaches making millions, not living up to their end of the agreement, yet ******** on the players. In my book that’s inexcusable.

    Way to go. That was in the works when we talked at the mall, correct? For those that want to look into this type giving just call Marion Yongue at the Foundation or one of the other fine people there. If you are like BDYZR and us (now wealthy) you can make a larger impact in the future than you can now. Old school universities that have been around forever are always cashing in as people pass. USF doesn't have a ton of legacy donors. The time to start is now. Even though our former AD MH didn't recognize these gifts as important, the people at the Foundation will tell you they are critical to the future.

    His presser was a put down to the players and an embarrassment to the University. He should be fired on that alone. A good leader gives credit to the players when things are going good and takes the blame when things are going bad. Before the game, when asked what USF has to do catche UCF he gave an incoherent bumbling answer. He has no attachment to this University. This gig was supposed to be a 2 year stop to rehab his career until he could get back to the P5. He brought in BB so he could have a good enough record this year that he’d be attractive to a P5 program. Obviously that’s not gonna happen and I think his frustration boiled over in his presser. Changing coordinators is not the answer. Didn’t work for him at Texas. If he stays we will be having this same conversation next year after a 4-8 or 5-7 year wondering if we can afford his buyout.

    I dont get the Shaun King love affair either, other than being a good recruiter what does he bring to the table as a coodinator???? His moves at rb this year were questionable at best and last year as qb coach he had Q....i dont get it, what makes him qualified or why should he be spared the wrath of bulls fans....if anyone should be spared in my mind its BJM

    IIRC, Strong was hired by Texas when they were a dumpster fire. He was brought in to right the ship and given time to bring in his own players. That's not the case when he arrived at USF. He inherited a team ready to win and win it all. What he's done is underachieve his entire tenure. That is a huge difference.
