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,

Brad Brad

  1. You do realize how our TEAM is set up right? Did you honestly expect this game to be close before it happened? Did you predict we'd only lose by 3 points? Did you expect this team to score ANY points? We knew that the hardest parts of our schedule was at the end of the season. Before we truly knew we sucked, we viewed these games as toss ups at best and guaranteed losses at worst. Now you are making a bold prediction by saying Mccloud will cost us the game next week against Memphis, really?!?!
  2. For those who were curious like me, page's 1-9 are classic bulls pen. 10-15ish you see a slow transition, then boom we reluctantly accept the fact that our team can have nice things. We are consistently inconsistent. Some here try really hard to save face, so the majority of their compliments have a "but we can suck at any moment" clause in them. I don't think trans are great because they beat us and I don't think trans are terrible because they lose to us. We're an ok team. I would comfortably say middle of the pack this year. We're not as bad as we say, but we're not as good as we've been in the past. We're simply good.
  3. The back up QB is always insanely popular until you get a peek at why they may be the back up. I hope he warms up and gets better.
  4. I think that's the key portion. Of course if you get pressure np problem. But if you don't... you lose.
  5. Our number 2 is so injured he couldn't suit up and our number 3 is a walk on... Injured Mccloud is still the best option to manage the game. He managed it very well, stayed calm, and didn't put the team in jeopardy. Would it have been nice to have a convincing victory with those missed opportunities, yes, but either way we won. We live to fight another day and he got more game day experience and more confidence. I'm not mad at that at all.
  6. Have we ever had a successful football season where the qb didn't have to run for their life? I came in during the back end of the Grothe years. Watched the BJ Daniels transition. And I clearly remember the torture of trying to find a replacement for BJ. What made Grothe, Daniels, and Flowers so successful in my eyes is they punished defenses for blitzing. So then our opponents were forced to have a qb spy and attempt to stack the line, which caused them to get beat for the long ball. So they adjust which opened up run lanes. Then it was a pick your poison type thing in my overly simplified recap. So I personally would stick with the most mobile qb. Which is JM. I felt like he played it too cool in the pocket and it collapsed on him. If he has the 2/3 passing options and if there not there run mindset, that may work out better.
  7. I have enjoyed reading this thread. I often wonder how much of Jim Levitt's success was right place right time, and how much was of his own merit. Take the year we rose to #2 in the nation, we honestly took advantage of a flaw in the system. We weren't deserving of the #2 ranking and got exposed shortly after. How much of the nostalgia is because we were in what was affectionately known as "the big least?" We had a regular opportunity to play storied programs who got the benefit of name recognition in the polls. I love USF and my family loves USF, but in hindsight we never beat a storied program when they were firing on all cylinders. So it confuses me when fellow Bulls fans want to live and die by XCJL. Saying they "wouldn't care if we ever won a conference championship as long as he came back." What would be the point of him coming back if we would be in the same place we're in now? We're just not good enough. The level of competition has gone up and we are in a down year/cycle. Quinton Flowers is a hard dude to replace. The Florida Gulf Coast offense is a hard thing to replace. Hate it or love it but XCWT is a hard guy to replace as well. If XCWT's story and success have a huge BUT/* next to it, why do some of you give Xcjl undying support when his results were no different, with the exception of falling up in the polls one year, what was XCJL except for our first football love? I was a student when he was here so I wasn't privy to all of the insider knowledge of his personality flaws and such, but if that's true, what on field success has he had that's worth that? Football ha's it's natural ups and downs, this team has life, it's just struggling to compete while going through a growing phase. Ucf has had some good luck recently and it sucks because it's lined up with our bad luck. But soon my fellow bulls will see and remember that the golden hue you see over the horizon isn't sunshine, it's the light reflecting off of their golden showers. They will suck again, and honestly, they probably do already. Their suck had just been masked by high powered offense... Either way, i wish XCJL the best just like I wish XCWT the best. *Please forgive the potential rambling. I'm suffering from insomnia lol
  8. I know it wasn't a win, but my family got a chance to see our bulls live. Thank you for the tickets man! My son's could still pass for 3 when they first turned 4, so 3/4 years of their life we had season tickets. Bring in our daughter and my sons oversharing and we couldn't swing it this year. So I wanted to thank you publicly for giving our life long Bull's fans the chance to go to a game again. Lord knows they don't understand the fact that they are no longer free. With childcare for 3 kids is in the same ballpark as our mortgage and us being on teacher salaries...but I digress. Thank you Bowman1 and we'll all weather this storm together. Go Bulls!
  9. I needed this win just so we could get the board off of suicide watch.
  10. Yes, unlike some, I don't want my team to continue to be a dumpster fire. Two weeks ago it didn't seem like we could beat and score on ANYONE. So a score as soon as the o.p. starts this thread, is this thread aging poorly.
  11. Really hope this thread continues to age terribly
  12. Some people pay good money for this type of masochism!
  13. Flowers was still here and didn't need replacing but I think Chris Oladokun is doing ok for himself.
