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. No, just a UCF purest, and an all Florida football fan in general. and I HATE everything about UCONN... Everything ! I would love to see a USF complete beat down of UCant.
  2. UCONN doesn't stand a chance agains USF, especially a Bulls team with tenacity. USF is not in a position to "look ahead" past their upcoming games. Next three games will be wins, and one will be a complete blowout, you know one of those frustration games. I do not envy UConn.
  3. USF is a good football program, and I mean a very good program, rich with talent and alot to offer any recruit. Facilities are more than adequate, I see so many similarities to a UCF team of not that long ago. Lack of discipline, there is a cancer in the locker room, not pointing fingers, but you feel it, either players have lost respect for coaches decisions, or they are not buying into a certain playing philosophy. Seen it. USF is just one mental aspect away from being very good again. Maybe a coaching change ? I did not like old school OLeary, and in the end, his departure was a good thing. Not sure canning CS is the right move now, but an intervention of sorts is needed. It will take just one player to step up and own it. Even fans, much like we did, are trying to pinpoint issues but somehow not seeing the real problem. I am a fan of college football, pure and simple, and a realist, a bad USF team does nothing for the conference. I sure hope USF gets their ship (pun intended) righted quickly.
  4. Your contract is for lower bowl only at RJS, at 44k you should be selling out, Wisconsin was allocated 5k tix and laughed in your face and said naw we'll take just 2k.
  5. JTRUE : Yep he transfered because the team he was with SUCKED....
  6. https://youtu.be/3CAmD8BAqG0 Tom Jones has left the building
  7. Not trolling....Was just pointing out that with all the "down on the AAC" talk, this does not help that we will not put a team in a NY6 bowl game. And honestly, I would be rooting for USF, just to see a team represent our conf. on Jan 1. And get the addition revenue. Said a million times "the tide rises all ships" this is how our P6 claim gets legitimized.
  8. A UCF loss puts a Boise State / Fresno team in the Fiesta, does NOTHING for the conference, Memphis just goes the less crappy bowl that pays a mete pitance.but, because the AAC does bowl revenue sharing, we all get screwed out of an addition 6 million in our AAC coffer. And lets face it, the $ is what this is really about.
  9. "True story: A local Dunkin’ Donuts in Tampa earlier this week was running a promotion in which any USF fan simply had to stop by and say “Go Bulls” in order to receive two free tickets to Friday’s War on I-4. How embarrassing. Can you imagine going into a doughnut shop and having this conversation with the guy behind the counter: “I’ll have two of the Vanilla Frosting with Sprinkles, two of the French Crullers, two of the Strawberry Frosted, two of the Chocolate Glazed and — Go Bulls, Go Bulls, Go Bulls — six USF tickets, please." -sentinal Part of me wants to laugh but, every true and honest fan knows programs ebb and flow. Once dominant teams fall from grace and have to rebuild. And obscure programs build and and climb, we are climbing but leave no doubt USF day is coming, it's Florida for gods sake, its inevitable. Hey aren't you glad none of us are S.Miss or Marshall.
  10. Yes, I had forgotten about the Houston game...my bad
  11. It took the FLORIDA GATORS nearly 100 years just to win a CONFERENCE title, They will NEVER see us as their equals...Hell, they don't see teams in their OWN conference as their EQUALS now (Vandy ,Kentucky, Mizzou)...They were the (yawn)team on the SEC schedule back in the day of Alabama,LSU, Georgia, Auburn ..Miss State, Tennessee ETC. They didn't even have a real rivalry (Ga beat UF 25 of the first 30 years). So much so, they created a rivalry with an (UPSTART) in state "Girls school" in Tallahassee, winning 16 of the first 20. So I do believe in the court of public opinion a USF/UCF will get MAD respect eventually. We are a FLORIDA football base, its not like we're in Idaho or N. Dakota, The WAR ON I4 is a huge part of that, each of us has to hold our end of the bargain and be ranked year in and year out, So yes I DO root for USF in non UCF games. In a perfect P5 world they don't even want to play non P5 schools, their was an internal memo encouraging teams to schedule OOC games with other P5 Schools just to keep the revenue "In the family" so to speak. And that makes UCF's point...P5 will NEVER be "FAIR" so you poke them in the eye PROCLAIMING yourself National Champs.
  12. CARTEL: 1: a written agreement between belligerent nations (conferences) 2: a combination of independent commercial or industrial enterprises designed to limit competition or fix prices 3: a combination of political groups for common action OK By pure definition the CFP is a Cartel,there are 130 teams listed as FBS, however at the beginning of the season only 65 are told they have a chance at the Big Dance. Silly, Cute, GOOD, BAD or indifferent. what UCF is doing HAS to be done... cracking the FBS wall, Sure we are the first, so we will get ridiculed the most, WHY ? that's what CARTELS do. they go into protective mode. Each P5 conference gets roughly $85 million(Not to mention stipends and recruiting exemptions non P5 schools are not afforded) that's more than the non p5 get combined, USF has a real and legitimate chance of being in the same exact situation in the VERY near future. There are only a handful of ELITE non p5 schools, USF is one of them. So in the next 3 to 5 years when you go UNDEFEATED and have beaten the likes of a (hopefully) ranked UCF, HOUSTON, MEMPHIS ETC,and a legit OOC opponent.Then go on to win your BOWL game (NOT IN THE CFP) The NCAA fan base and the p5 will hear "HERE WE GO AGAIN" and eventually the wall cracks further until the CFP is fair, and opened to ALL football conferences. The ONLY reason ALABAMA was eventually National Champs is because ALABAMA was given an OPPORTUNITY to be NATIONAL CHAMPS to add to their SELF PROCLAIMED titles. All these parades and banners are not for the NCAA, CFP, ESPN or any other entity outside the UCF FANBASE ,(the single most IMPORTANT aspect of any program) UCF fans are having FUN...celebrating an outstanding achievement, So keep up the bitter banter, but know this, if you believe in your team you know YOU will be in this very same situation in the VERY NEAR FUTURE. And any REAL UCF and FOOTBALL fan will know YOU EARNED IT AND DESERVE IT ! YOU were 1 Game,( 7 points !) from being in this EXACT same situation.
  13. Keep in mind that all of this money goes to the conference, not to the team playing in the game. Most conferences split it equally between all 12-14 teams with an equal share also going to the conference office (although some give a bonus to the team participating in the game). Keep in mind the AAC gets 12 million base payout from CFP bowl revenue. regardless of payout in personal team payouts we want ALL AAC teams to got to higher payout bowls and win of course.
