Hi Guest,

Just a note to point out our TBP-initiated drive to raise funds for the Bulls Football IPF - doing our share, and more.  Please consider donating at least $23 to the effort, and passing on to others as well.  You can read more about the project at the link above.

Go Bulls!

Thank you,


Brad Brad

Hi Guest,

In our efforts to raise funds for USF Football, the site is giving away a football season full of ad-free surfing at The Bulls Pen.

Would you consider buying a ticket or two to the raffle that will award this to you or a fellow member of the board?

Each ticket purchase goes directly to our effort to raise $10K in "fan money" for the program.  Below is the link:

Thank you,

  1. I watched both links. They did not disappoint.
  2. The one good thing about the conference TV deal is the championship game is on ABC without much competition. The 3.4 million viewers is not far off from what the PAC 12 and ACC championships draw. It is roughly 3.5 times the viewers of the next G5 conference championship the MWC.
  3. FWIW, the AAC championship game is on ABC, not the Ocho. It has a significant number of viewers. Last year it had 3.3 million viewers (double that of College Gameday) for an afternoon game competing against other games that day. For comparison, the PAC 12 championship in a prime time slot with no other competition had 4.0 million viewers. We can argue the merits of winning a championship that isn’t from a power conference, but no doubt it brings exposure. And since it is the only path to a major bowl and even more exposure, it is that much more important.
  4. The even funnier thing is Temple, UConn, and Cincy were in the big east for a long time. Another division team that didn’t spend time in the big east is UCF. Who we all are familiar with.
  5. Yes. Same scenario potentially unfolding this year. They are down 6 at the half.
  6. And now Virginia is getting clobbered by Gardener Web 26-14 with 7min to go in the half.
  7. Tournament should be a reward to the team. They played well enough in the first half to deserve that reward. If football can get a reward bowl for finishing with 7 straight losses, might as well reward the basketball team who by all accounts outperformed expectations.
  8. In NET the Big East is #5 slightly ahead of #6 AAC. Then there is a sizeable gap to the Pac-12 at #7. PAC-12 may be a 1 bid league. http://warrennolan.com/basketball/2019/conferencenet
  9. USF had a non conference SoS ranked 329 this year. The 4 teams that reached 21-22 wins from the American are likely in the tournament by the way. NC State has 21 wins and are not in most brackets due to their weak strength of schedule.
  10. No path to NIT now. Just have to hope to win 4 in 4 days next week.
  11. Have to hope the regular season champs win their conference tournament to have any shot. NIT guarantees a spot to the smaller conference regular season champs who don’t make the NCAAs.
  12. UF doesn’t play 1-1 against any team not named FSU. Even P5 teams. Have to go back to the early 90s to find the last time they did. Basically if you want them on the schedule 2-1 or 1 away is the only way to do it.
  13. Every fan base wants 10 win seasons and conference titles. 10% of teams achieve that. So 90% of hires are “bad”.
