CrowdFund:$23 for 23 years of Bulls Football - Build the IPF
View this project






$23 for 23 years of Bulls Football - Build the IPF

Join the $23 for 23 fundraising effort to benefit USF Football and the Indoor Practice Facility.  This crowdfunding effort is open to all members and guests.  Feel free to forward to your Bulls friends and family.  Targeted donation per person is $23 per ticket or more.  Those seeking to make a significant donation and wishing to receive the tax benefit may reach out to Brad in order to provide appropriate info to the USF Athletics program.

This effort grew from E.T.'s post of April 7, 2019:

E.T.'s vision was what if every season ticket holder donated $23 for our 23rd season of USF Football?  This would be significant if we could start on this board and spread this to all season ticket holders.  Perhaps even some non-season ticket holders would contribute and even purchase tickets!  

This effort is approved by USF and Brad will provide full reporting to board member and Athletics staff member John Lewis.

It's time to go on the record about the state of the program and transfers...
I'm predicting 11-1 regular season with wins over UCF, Wisconsin and Georgia Tech. 

I give the program an A on addressing needs and staff. 

Please give your prediction on W-L's  and how you feel about the following below:

1. State of the Program- I think that CCS needs to be on Defense full time and leave all of the offense and special teams to KB. CCS has the chops for defense and needs to so called get off the bus blitzing. Through the infusion of players from P5 programs, we have depth unseen in these parts. Linebackers were going to be a big problem for us, but through development and transfers, it now has become a plus instead of a minus. I am confident that the offense will put up 35 on Wisconsin. I think since CCS has always had awful special teams, let KB run the entire special teams unit, period! I was probably more concerned about the secondary than I was the lb's, but with Studstill and Barnett eligible I feel we have a real chance to be solid. I liked what I saw out of Evans and hope Sails is eligible. Now, just take a look at the weight that has been added upfront on defense, now we have some players that can wreak havoc on the edges and hold their ground up the middle. Something tells me that our ends will be the best in the conference and we certainly have addressed that through the portal. I mean we can be real special at that position. 

2. Transfers- CCS did exactly what I thought and even added a few more surprises. I like Thaxton, Burnett,Studstill, Slade, Jones, Sails, Macon and Trice. I am hoping to get a surprise on the OL. All of the D transfers are instant impact if eligible.

So, 73 days out, how many at USF v Wisconsin?
What are the thoughts?

Big name team.  Home and Season Opener.  Cold, clean uniforms.  #PlayFastScoreFaster

Will there be enough (we must do our share) of hype and activity to create a groundswell of interest and fans to want to get to RJS that Friday in August?

Are we on the under or over of 50,000?

Out on a limb against Wisconsin
We are going to win by 13!!

Reasons:

I think we will get out early and be up by 14 at the half.

Kerwin Bell is that impressive and we bulked up and added enough size and talent from the portal to stop a heavy run offense. I think Studstill will be a man on a mission in the Box. The DL is much improved and will have depth. We are good on the ends.

 

My only concern is lb play and with Macon coming in and Greer, Broyles (sp) Lainge and Mims...hopefully the DL can keep the guards off of them

Secondary: Studstill, Burnett, Lapointe and Hampton...All are capable and can tackle in space. Davis and Evans can provide relief. If Sails is eligible then Hampton will have to elevate his game and tackle better.

I'm curious on Waller, Leacock and Kirby.

If we start Sanders or Roberts in the secondary it will be a very long afternoon.

I still think that 2 or 3 more will show up from portal.

4/26/19

Tampa, FL - Bulls sophomore Baron Stuart enjoyed another deep outing, pitching seven innings against the Houston Cougars (25-17) Friday night at the USF Baseball Stadium.  He gave up three runs early, but settled down to complete seven IP and spare the USF bulls pen.  In his last outing, Stuart went eight innings, yielding just one run to The Citadel.  Tonight, his line included five hits, two walks and two strikeouts.  Nelson Alvarez closed it out, pitching the final two innings giving up no hits or walks and striking out three.  Alvarez lowered his season ERA to 2.49.  
Stuart surrendered two runs in the second inning when he gave up three consecutive hits to the Coogs.  With one out, Houston's  Rey Fuentes doubled.  Houston's Derrick Cherry followed with a single before Kobe Hyland doubled down the right field line to score both runners.  Thanks to a line out and a fielder's choice, Stuart got out of the inning giving up just two runs.   The Coogs also added a run in the fourth when Cherry smashed a solo home run to left center.

The Bulls put up one run in the 5th inning when Austin Bodrato led off with a single to center.  Tyler Dietrich flied out before freshman Alex Bello doubled to left center, scoring Bodrato.   

The Bulls trailed until a three run sixth put them up a run.  The inning started with a Jordan Santos single.  Joe Genord flied out and Chris Chatfield wallked.  Julio Cortez greeted a Houston pitching substitution with an RBI single to right field.  Bodrato followed with a walk before Tyler Dietrich met a third Houston pitcher.  Then the Coogs' wheels came off.  On Dietrich's fielder's choice, combined with a Houston throwing error, Bodrato and Chatfield crossed the plate.

The Bulls added a final, insurance run, in the eighth when Bello again knocked in Bodrato.  This time with a single to right field.

Baron Stuart Leads Bulls to Win over The Citadel
04/18/19

Tampa, FL - Sophomore Baron Stuart delivered just what the Bulls needed - an with inning, five hit performance in which he gave up just one run.  The Citadel managed a run in the top of the first when they got to Stuart for two hits in their first two at bats.  Leadoff hitter Ryan McCarthy singled and stole second before being singled home by Tyler Corbitt.  The Bulls would get out of the inning with a line drive double play.  
The Bulls didn't respond with a run until Joe Genord third inning single drove home Kyle Phillips who led off the frame with a single to center.

But, in the fifth and eight innings the Bulls would explode for four runs.   Highlights from the four run fourth included a Jake Sullivan solo shot, followed later in the inning by a Chris Chatfield two run double to right center.  Julio Cortez followed Chatfield with a run-scoring single to close the scoring.

In the eight, the Bulls got started with a walk to Alex Bello.  Add a Phillips single and an intentional pass to Genord and the table was set for Chatfield to smack a grand slam for some real nice insurance scoring.


The Bulls finished with 13 hits total.  Stuart was relieved by Brandon Schrepf.  Schrepf struck out to of the three batters he faced, sitting the side down in order.

Reminder:  Due to impending weather, there is no Friday game. Instead a doubleheader will be played Saturday with the first batter at 11 a.m.
