    ... but this one's a little tougher having met Charlie (charsibb) for the first time last December, and then had a blast watching our latest defense of that Vulcan trophy with him. Charlie PM'd me in July that he was going in for surgery on a huge tumor in the groin area and wasn't sure he was coming out then. He was setting me up at that time for notifying the board and the spreading of a portion of his ashes in the Bull fountain on campus. He came thru but was pretty certain he wouldn't see Christmas. Got the call last Thursday from him saying his vital organs were shutting down and he probably wouldn't make it thru the weekend. He sounded awesome (said it was the Percocet) and we had a great 20 minute conversation .... but it was also one of the most surreal, most uplifting and most depressing conversations that I've ever had, triggering a flood of emotions when I hung up. His nephew's email arrived this afternoon.

    1 - I will NOT attend ANYTHING past 11am on Saturdays unless you have NCAA football on your television. Televisions must be a minimum of 50" diagonal with a minimum resolution of something clear enough to see. Events containing ultra-high definition televisions and seating with direct line of sight of said television will take priority over those events that do not. Events broadcasting USF football take priority over all other events, regardless of TV size and definition. Events broadcasting USF football will take priority over all other events except the above. 2 - I will be high strung, loud, and extremely obnoxious if you are around me while USF is playing. Things may/may not be thrown. If any of your belongings are damaged I will repair/replace them, but I will not care until after the post-game analysis. 3 - I will wear Green and Gold on Friday and Saturday. *No exceptions* 4 - If you somehow coerce me into attending an event by having all of the prerequisites listed in (#1) above, be aware that I will chant GO BULLS wherever I am and anytime I want. Chanting GO BULLS is a must on the weekends especially during games. 4a - In the event that USF begins during a prayer, I will reverently and respectfully wait until the prayer is complete before picking up the chant. After all, Jesus is a USF fan too. 5 - My attendance at weddings, wedding showers, and baby showers are for bye weeks ONLY. It's not my fault you are starting your married/family life and proving to everyone that you are a horrible planner. I won't be there but I will wish you the best of luck as soon as the game is over. 5b - *Or as soon as the game and the post game show are over* 6 - In the event that we are watching a game together, and you are not a USF fan, you will not cheer against the BULLS, but I will cheer against your crappy team. Any negative statement about my BULLS will not be fine, and could result in your injury. Thanks for understanding everyone. * I had a friend send me this for her team; modified it for mine and wanted to share

    The PC police have finally come to the Bullspen. Remember the days when random members of this board would make various road trips to USF games and then end up banging random broads vice sleeping in their car those nights, providing some well written narratives for the members on here when they got back to Tampa? My, have things changed for the worse (and I have two daughters). When millennials started wearing skinny jeans, I think it cut off blood to both their nuts and their brains. #MTBGA (Make The Bullspen Great Again)

    There once was a man named McCants. When he's running, you ain't got a chance. Your face hits the dirt While you're yanking his shirt. And he he'll soon do his end zone dance! Go Bulls!

    Let me help. USF green is still the dark green. A few years ago USF added accent colors to the green and gold. One of those secondary colors is called "Apple" and that is the lime green you are all talking about. It has been an official USF color for a number of years, but in a secondary position. Now, USF is about to announce some re-branding, I am willing to bet that "Apple" is about to be promoted into the top tier with our traditional green and gold. Now, we won't change our identity, we are still Green and Gold, just the green will now be in two shades. ((this isn't inside info, just what I have observed .... I also think the whole university will be using an Athletics logo for its identity, instead of the block USF in the square))

    I can honestly say this board has made me a better person. Sounds crazy but I learned it's ok to not agree with people, personal insults are a sign of weakness and I admit I was a crappy person to people... but I've learned to laugh at myself and take things in stride. It's something I've been applying to other areas of my life. So in a sense, you guys help change me into a better me. I still know more football than you guys... lol... I kid... but seriously, thanks for checking me and thanks for putting up with my BS for so long a few years ago.

    It is a ritual that has been going on for over twenty years now. I get to one or two games a year for the others at home I try to recreate an “at game” presence as much as I can (assuming a 7:00pm kick off): Friday morning before the game: USF Flag is hung up on the front door flag holder. If we win it stays up until Sunday night. If we lose it comes down after the game. 11:00-4:00- watch CFB...usually just teams in our conference but will glance at others. This usually means I will have three to four games on simultaneously (through PC and tv) but will pick one out to focus on. 4:00-5:00: set up outdoor table on patio with USF plates, mugs, coasters, and napkins (I buy a stock every few years). I also bring out my game used USF football (2010 vs Cuse) and CJL signed mini helmet (the original) and use it as the centerpiece. My son and I used to throw a football around but he is gone to college now. 5:00-6:30- while preparing the grill for the food/eating (which will include anything from sausage dogs to lobster) I put the pregame on and listen to Jim (gonna miss Mark) and the others. 7:00- in front of the tv. I have my laptop nearby watching and contributing to the comments from all of my USF friends on TBP. 10:00- after a win I have a special USF glass I bought the day I graduated in 1986. I poor a beer and salute my alma mater if we win. If we lose I will write some stupid comments on TBP and then go to bed. Yes, I have issues but I would not have it anyother way! As always Go Bulls and let’s get this season started!!!

    After recent events, I'm thinking it's important we take care of our Bull brothers and sisters. I understand that life can get in the way, but it just got me thinking about some people who have meant a lot to this board that haven't been seen recently. Maybe Brad has a way of reaching out.

    I haven't really done too much posting, but I had to write something to remember Charlie. For the couple of years he called Virginia home he was the mascot for the USF alumni association in the area bringing excitement, cheer, laughter, and fun hats. I had the pleasure of watching many many football games with him and had the opportunity to form a true friendship with him. In getting to know Charlie, he was a man of simple pleasures and adventure. Although he was not one to stay in one place for any length of time, I still remember the day he told me he purchased his dream home in Arlington not too far from my apartment at the time. He had been eyeing it for quite a while just hoping it would become available for him to snatch up. I'm happy that our friendly nomad was able to make Virginia his home for the few years he was here, and honored to have met someone who I believe has inspired or at least provided a brief respite from the difficulties of life to anyone he has been in the same room as Charlie. Liz and I will be forever grateful to our friendship and memories. Rest in piece my friend.

    I wanted to start a thread for people to post their various USF builds (trailers, tables, cornhole boards, etc.) and also discuss possible ideas for builds. I will get the thread going with a photo of my cornhole boards that I build over the offseason.

    Well here is a link to the end result. We have a few tweaks to do but it ran well for the first game.

    Being from Ocala I found this pretty awesome, as that is where the company was founded and is based out of. The dude that started this is a graduate of USF and also donates to the school.

    Yes. FWIW I think Whoever it was on our board that said Toledo would be tougher must have been talking with lots of hope, delusion or a bit of both. We will be better this year than last. Cignetti has made a big difference in our overall culture. We have some very talented FCS players. However, You all play a different level of ball. I'm hoping we don't get embarrassed, and come home healthy. Our team has the chance to make some noise in our conference and in the overall FCS nationally as long as we stay reasonably healthy.

    For those that really appreciate this message board and want to see it get even better and continue to grow, I would recommend donating a little bit of money to assist Brad in that endeavor. There is a link on the main page where you can quickly and easily donate to the cause.

    I want out most dangerous returner back there regardless of his position on the depth chart at his primary spot. JR Reed and Mike Jenkins are two of the greatest bulls of all time and both were big time contributors in the return game even though they were vital to their teams at their primary spots. Just get the ball in your best playmakers hands and good things happen. If anything I would say considering the way he plays McCants is probably way more at risk on offense than he is on special teams. Also, when it comes to punt returns you never know how sure handed the guys are unless you are out there at practice. It very well could be that McCants is just by far the best guy we have for ball security that still offers upside once the ball is secured.
