    TBT beat writers are all gator fans

    Meh, I thought the Tebow article was pretty good.... it actually provided quite a bit of insight into the USF locker room after a tough loss at home. Not too many journo's are gonna give that kind of coverage to our lowly "G5" school. Honestly, Joey seems to have been less down on the bulls than our own fans following the loss. He seems to at least try to be impartial, and I feel like he's been doing a much better job of it this year than he has in the past, when I thought he was unnecessarily critical at times. I miss Greg Auman, for sure... but he was exceptional, and I don't think we can expect that level of coverage unless we jump to P5 and "do something".

    How hard is it to change

    Ya'll acting like this offense sucks and the world is ending. This offense is legitimately the second most productive offense (YPG) in the history of the school. This offense doesn't need an overhaul to be lights out... it just needs tweaks. Add in a few more RPO, add in some screens.... that's it. I would love to hate on Gilbert like the rest of this forum, but ya'll are delusional if you think his offense hasn't been successful this far. I agree it could be better, but comparing our performance this year to Taggart's first two years, or Strong's tenure at Texas just doesn't hold water. We're 14th in YPG nationally. We are 16th in PPG nationally. That should be good enough to be an elite team and accomplish such goals as winning the AAC, getting to a NY6 bowl, and winning said NY6 bowl. Quite frankly, Flowers is gone next year. We have 2 more PP type QBs behind him. This offense would work better with a better passer (duh), and we have the two most talented pocket passer type QB's we've ever had on the roster right now. This teams is going to be competitive for a long time to come if Strong and Co. can keep recruiting at a high level. So far, it appears that they might be even better recruiters than Tags. tl;dr We only lost 1 game guys. This team is still amazing, and the future is still bright. It's really hard to make preemptive adjustments to your offense when everything is working well enough to win games.

    This Game Has Me Worried

    Any team can lose any game. I don't think that's the case with this one though. This has all the ingredients to be the worst blowout of the season so far. It's all about the matchups. We are really good at running they ball... they are meh at stopping it. We ok at throwing the ball, they suck at stopping that. They are also very good at running the ball... we're one of the best teams in the nation at stopping it, They suck at throwing the ball... we're not the best at stopping it. The triple option is somewhat of an equalizer against talent, but we just physically outmatch them at every aspect of the game. We're stronger, faster, and deeper at every position (except maybe linebacker). In addition to all that, we've played the triple option every year for the last several years. We know how to stop that kind of offense: discipline. The only reason this game might not be a blood bath is that since both teams will be running the ball the entire time, the score might be low.
  4. Yanno... I'm not a huge fan of the play calling. I like the flashy offense from last year. I like spreading out the receivers and letting Q run the ball... and then occasionally sneaking a TD pass to the TE who is wide open down the middle of the field. I will say this though.... this offense is soul crushing to opposing teams. When drives last this long, and you get 3 to 4 yards (or more) every single time the ball is handed off... it is absolutely demoralizing to the guys having to try to stop it. Football has a huge psychological component in-game... the level of faith the team can have to stop the other team's offense is outstanding. It has shades of the CJL defenses of old. This is the most complete USF team I have ever seen. If they finally put together all phases in the same game... holy crap... for the first time since CJL, I feel like this team could actually stand a chance against any team in the nation...(except Bama, GD they look scary). We're beating teams by 4 TDs while not firing on all cylinders!

    Quiz: USF vs ECU

    Opening line for ECU

    There is an undeniable fact that the talent gap between our rosters right now is huge. We are faster, bigger, stronger, and deeper at every position. Their defense is the worst (outside of SJSU? that we will face all year). If our offense starts humming, we will hang 70 on them. If it sputters, we'll hang 45. The matchup of our Offense vs. their Defense is possibly the worst mismatch all season. The other matchup (Their offense vs our defense) is really not much better. Our D-Line will create havoc for them. They don't have a super strong running game to begin with, so I feel like they will be relegated to only moving the ball through dink n' dunk. I believe they will have some success moving the ball, but will end up sputtering out on most of their drives or settling for field goals. I also don't see how we manage to come up with fewer than 2 picks in this game. All in all, I don't think the line is that far off...
  8. When you're up by 20 against a really optimistic, athletic defense.... you run the ball. I don't agree with the conservative nature of the playcalling, but it wasn't bad... just really conservative.

    Temple will be a test for us

    FWIW, I watched the Temple games this week while I was waiting for our game. This game isn't even going to be close. It will be over by halftime. Here is my reasoning: they literally cannot stop our offense. Even if Temple sells out to stop the run, they will just get torched on the outside for 10+ yds every time. If they don't sell out to stop the run, we will gash them over and over again with Tice, DJ, and Flowers. They have also been really vulnerable to deep balls this year. Basically, if you complete a pass against them, it's going for 15 yards or more. Guys, Temple's defense is bad. It shows moments of athleticism, and they can tackle, but they have been out of position and at times, one-dimensional. Our offense is too balanced for Temple to handle. This is going to be a bloodbath. Temple's offense is a hot pile of garbage. They are trying to throw the ball more, but it's not really working that great even against UMass and Nova. Our D-Line will be problematic for them, and chances are we get the most picks so far in this game. They are going to try to force the throw because they will have to... and we will come up with some INTs.

    USF's Defensive Turnaround

    This. All day, this. I had enough faith in the offense last year to pull out some wins (memphis, SCar) that should have been easy with a little bit of defense. However, it's soooo nice to know that in a close game you can rely on your defense to come up with a stop and you can rely on your offense to score. I feel like this might be the most complete (if not outright best) Bulls teams we've ever seen (now that we know Gilbert was sandbagging with the playbook).
  12. Honestly, I thought they should have thrown more last year. The TEs were deadly effective, and I think we could have used them more.
  13. It's being reported that he was fired today.
