    Apparently you missed the WVU game in 2007. Was about 20,000 fans louder than the Tin Can.

    If we end up in the Boca Raton Bowl and Brenda Snipes is running the scoreboard, we might win!

    I am disgusted with a lot of USF fans where did this false sense of entitlement come from? Why would the Football Gods bless us? When we were 7-0 “fans” were already making posts that we will lose the last 4 of 5 games. We crap on our A.D, crap on our coaches, crap on our players, and pretty much crap of our team. Why would the Football Gods bless us with success? We are ungrateful, have a false sense of entitlement, and lack ANY kind of FAITH in this team. I don’t care what religion you are. You can be Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish Muslim, or even an atheist. In the end, the energy you put out in the world is ALWAYS going to be the energy you receive. Many of you spoke/typed the negativity into existence. We were undefeated and yet we still was pissed off. Grant it- many of us, including myself thought we would have more success and were wrong. Those things happen. But what will predicting losing the rest of the games for the season, crying for coaches to get fired and crapping on the players do? Rather than simply getting over it and still enjoying the season, you just pumped sooooo much negativity into the “spirit” of the rest of this season. Regardless of wins/losses you should still love and support your team. This has to be hands down the most emotionally draining year as a USF football fan ever! How do you handle disappointment in real life? Do you give up when you don’t get that job after the interview or do you keep searching and find a better job? Did you give up when you got sick or did you fight the sickness? When your kids have bad days, do you tell them it will get better or do you tell them life sucks and don’t bother to have hope? Many of you who are crying about UCF’s success don’t realize that, they went 0-6, then 6-6 Scott Frost 1st season and then went 12-0. It didn’t happen overnight. The past 2 seasons we won at least 10 games and then lost the foundation of that team to graduation. We are starting over and already at 7 wins with 3 games left. Have some patience. I’m a Saints fan and our last Superbowl was 2011. Since then our coach was suspended for a year, a beloved player was murdered, we missed the playoffs a few times and had many heart breaking losses. This year, we have a chance to go back to the Superbowl. We just signed Dez Bryant and he suffered a season ended injury in his 1st practice. I still feel my Saints will win the Superbowl. But if they don’t win it, I will still love my team. Believe it or not, USF is NOT the only team underachieving or not winning conference titles. Anyways in closing - 1. USF will get better. We have tons of talent that will grow bigger, stronger and are more seasoned. 2. CCS will be fine. I would love if Gilbert leaves and Shaun king becomes the offensive coordinator. If Gilbert stays then I hope the players learn to be successful in his system and keep it moving. 3. BJM had great success his first year here. He lost a ton of talent and needs time to rebuild the defense. 4. We have a great recruiting class, several transfers either playing for the first time or playing their 2nd year year. McDoom mutha*****, McDoom baby! He will be lights out next year in addition to Horne when he comes back from injury. We will have way more speed next year. 5. The undersized “youngins” on our team will have all summer to add bulk, add muscle, and will have physically grown by the start of next year. 6. As for this year, if we can finish out with 9-10 wins including a bowl victory I will be happy. If not, I hope the disappointing season provides enough motivation and determination to make the players step it up. Hell I hope it pisses them off. 7. I will still watch USF football this year, so that I can see which players will have a bigger impact next year. I will also simply enjoy whatever “highlights” our players produce and the journey to greatness since it will take longer than I expected. P.S if you are going to “stop” buying season tickets, going to the games or watching USF football please keep it to yourself. It’s not a “man-law”, but it’s just not that “manly” to announce it. What do you want us to do? Do you want us to beg you to change your mind? Do what you feel you have to do buddy we don’t care.

    So I'm a regular Sirius XM ESPNU radio listener. This morning The First Team (Taylor Zarzour and Greg McElroy) had Dan Orlovsky on the phone talking about UCF and the CFB Playoff. They touched on their matchup with us on Friday and then Taylor asked Dan about the Bulls and what's happened to us. Dan provided a pretty solid hot take IMO and I transcribed it below to share with you all: Taylor Zarzour - Speaking of USF Dan, what happened to this team? This was a team that early in the season, they knocked off Georgia Tech, they beat Illinois, I know that they had a lot of roster turnover in Strong’s 2nd year, Blake Barnett’s thrown a bunch of INT’s, the defense has struggled. What’s going on with the Bulls right now? Dan Orlovsky - Yeah so offensively, they’re just, they’re in my opinion, in watching them on tape, they’re still stuck in 8 years ago. I mean ALL they do is tempo, and they just, there’s no emphasis offensively to be just like “ok let’s get Barnett a couple of completions, let’s get him an easy throw.” “Ok how can we help some of our receivers Salomon and McCants, how can we help those guys in man coverage?” Because all they do, the great majority of all they do is just take go routes, whether they’re inside fades from the slot or go routes on the outside… kind of those switch release concepts. You know it’s just very simplified and defenses have gone “ok these are the 3 or 4 things they do in their pass game and we are just going to force them to do 45 yard completions down the field on a constant basis,” and they haven’t been able to hit them so that’s been a big part about what’s gone on with their offense. They just get themselves, you know on 1st down they’ll take a go shot, and on 2nd down they’ll run the ball and get 2 or 3 yards and then its 3rd and 7. They live in 3rd and long, I mean they live in 3rd and long and then they’ll just go throw deep balls again and that’s really what’s hindered their offense and they don’t get into any kind of rhythm, they don’t open their playbook up because they don’t get 1st downs. You know defensively, they’ve really been hampered by the loss of the MLB Sawtelle. You know he got hurt so they moved a DE in to the MLB position. I watched them early, I had them against Tulsa and I was like “this defense is pretty good, they can run to the football, they play coverage well.” It just seems like they miss the MLB Sawtelle so much with their communication because guys get out of position. But they do some things well, guys just get out of position and it just doesn’t look like a team that is in tune with what they are doing defensively. But I will say this, they are asked to do a ton because of the offensive inefficiency. I mean there’s a lot of pressure on them to play well. You know they’ve lost 4 in a row, but 3 out of those 4, excluding the handling by Houston a month ago, they were up 17 last week on the road in Temple, they went into Cincinnati and were up against Cincinnati, it’s just they get into the 2nd half and have played so many plays on defense because their offense is struggling so much and they get kind of worn out.

    As my wife already has a list of things to do a mile long I wanted to take time to wish each of you a Happy Thanksgiving. And I include our UCF visitors in this. When all is said and done we are all brothers/sisters. Even bought a drink for a UCF guy sitting across from me on the plane ride back from the Temple game. This is, after all, just a game.

    He’s not worth 2.5 million. Pay the 200k buyout and hire a cheaper up and coming coach who wants to prove himself.

    I don’t get it, I would rather have their stadium on our campus and upgrade it periodically until it’s at its desired amenitie and capacity level. I want to take my kids on campus before the game and walk to the bookstore, the new Publix, show them the old bunker where I took my classes etc. We will sit on our hinds idly until next round of realignment and if it does occur and we get left out we will have ourselves to blame. I am tired of Ray Jay, it’s feels like a cavernous corporate ******** where we have no home field advantages, I am tired of that big pirate ship that screams Buccaneers, it just doesn’t feel like a college environment. I wish our AD was as proactive as UCF’s, I am tired of this close to the vest, wait and see, move at a cement turtle pace when it comes to sports facilities.

    Every school except USF can do it. We are the poorest university in the country and normal rules don’t apply to us. A red seated stadium with a pirate ship in the end zone that’s 20 minutes off campus is the ultimate college experience. You know that! Other schools want to emulate US. Rumor has it, and this is just a rumor of course....but I heard that UF is going to blow up the Swamp and build a newer stadium in Ocala. It’s going to have full liquor, a killer club level, a massive Jumbotron and multi-colored seats. It’s going to be awesome!

    Below is the email I sent to Michael Kelly after today's loss at Temple: Dear Mr. Kelly, As the leader of USF Athletics, I am writing you regarding the USF Football program. You have a very important decision to make regarding the future of football at USF this offseason. It’s not who should be the coach or what facilities the team needs. Instead you need to decide what your ultimate vision for this program is and where you will set the bar; and you need to proclaim that vision loudly and repeatedly to the entire Tampa Bay region, USF’s 50,000 students and our 325,000 alumni. On its current trajectory USF football is becoming irrelevant in the local sports landscape and as you have undoubtedly have heard, it’s happening in the growing shadow of an energized program 100 miles to our east. As an executive for a publicly traded company, I can tell you that in times like these people look to its leaders to understand a vision that they all can support and be excited about. Unfortunately, for those who support the program and those that university needs to regain relevance, no such vision appears to exist. There appears to be no bar for USF Football. What USF Football needs now, more than ever, is a leader that can: Clearly, loudly and repeatedly articulate a vision for USF football that will reach into the consciousness of the Tampa Bay region and beyond Set a high bar, and not be afraid to make difficult decisions in order to fulfill that vision Lead from the front and help everyone reach their potential Are you that leader? I’m interested in understanding your vision for the program, understanding what stakes you have put in the ground and see how you influence, reward and hold people accountable against the bar you have set. You have some big decisions to make and they will tell the students, alumni and Tampa Bay how serious you take the responsibilities that have been entrusted to you by this university and community. We are watching, but will you be seen? Sincerely,

    a stadium on the USF campus that we could truly call ours without a pirate ship in the endzone would be a dream.

    You are wrong. I was at the WVU game and it was deafening with people standing the whole time. However I would trade ray jay for just about anything on campus.

    Look I didn't expect to win a whole lot this year. I’m not disappointed in the team. I’m dissatisfied with the coaches inability to accept responsibility for the mess they created. Hearing this makes me want to fire everyone. At what point is it the coaches fault? If they can’t look at themselves first then they’re not leaders.
