    The biggest issue I've seen from our offense the last few weeks has been the inability to pickup the blitz. I feel it started vs ECU and they had success with it, and now every team since has been blitzing us on every obvious passing down with great success. Barnett's been getting knocked around and rattled early, which affects him throughout the game. Last week he got hit so much early in the game that he started feeling pressure that wasn't even there later in the game, which caused bad throws. We need to find a way to slow down the blitz. I feel like a RB screen behind a blitz would go for a big play consistently, and would make teams think twice about sending the house. Or if anything, on an obvious passing down instead if sending 4 or 5 guys out on routes, max protect and send two guys out on routes. Our WR's are talented enough to beat man coverage. Give Barnett time to throw and let our guys make a play on the ball. We just have to keep the QB upright. All I know is we have to do something to help out our young o-line with the blitz, otherwise teams will continue to do it and our offense will never get in sync.

    Oops They Did It Again....

    I made next week's newspaper cover for the TBT. Saved them some time.
  3. So Saloman is back this week then?
  4. We can take bets as to what perfectly healthy player from the UMass game is mysteriously not going to make the trip to Tulsa?
  5. I've never seen a team lose so many players to injuries stemming from practice and not the actual game. Every week it's like a game of "Who's not playing today who was perfectly healthy last game?" We're supposed to have gotten healthier during the bye week and we get back and Saloman is out. Is it all just bad luck or is Strong running these guys into the ground at practice? You never wanna be the person who says the coach is working the guys too hard, but guys are dripping like flies and it's all happening at practice...And the most frustrating part is that we don't find out about any of it until right before the game each week.
  6. I don't know of any studies but I can attest to this being true to me specifically. I grew up more of an NFL fan more so than college football. Never been to a college game as a kid. I went to USF during the 06-09 seasons and fell in love with the program during those crazy years. When I graduated in 2009 I bought season tickets and have had them ever since, rarely missing a home game in 10 years and going to several away games too. Had I never gone to the games in college I most certainly wouldn't have become a 10 year season ticket holder and die hard fan. It all started for me as a student, so I can see where he's coming from.
  7. Should beat Cincy and Temple, but wouldn't be surprised if we blew one. Houston will be tough. UCF is most likely a loss. 10-2 or 9-3.
  8. I learned this year to keep a roster handy when watching the games. Each week so far I've had to look someone up during the game to see who they were. Last week I was wondering about Bentlee Sanders and Jaymon Thomas all game and wondering who is #24 and #14? (Vincent Davis and Nick Roberts) You never know who Charlie's gonna roll out each week. Hopefully it builds good depth and experience. I am very curious about Naytron Culpepper though. He looked great at the end of last year as a true freshman, then he just disappeared without a word.

    ECU Game: Not a gimme

    I always get nervous when teams are coming off of some sort of emotional situation, like this hurricane. Plus the extra week where they were away from home and had nothing to do but focus on us. No class, etc. I think they're gonna come out hyped up and thinking upset. The quicker we get up on them, the better. Crush their hopes early. The longer they stick around the more they'll think it's their night. One thing I feel better about is playing a pass first team. Our D is small and fast and built to defend the spread. We just played two offenses that like to pound the rock. It wasn't pretty at times, but we endured. The remaining offenses we face are more suited for our style of defense. Hopefully the D gets better week by week, the offense keeps putting up big points and we keep this thing rolling.

    Week Three Games to Watch

    There are two big non-USF games I'll be keeping an eye on this weekend. First is GaTech-Pitt. Hopefully Georgia Tech can put together a good season and make our win vs them end up looking good. I'll be rooting for them each week the rest of the year. The really big game is Boise State-Oklahoma State. This is Boise's toughest game and if they win there is a real good chance they run the table. They already have a leg up on us with their initial ranking. If we went undefeated I still don't know if we'd pass them if they were undefeated. That would be the most USF thing ever. Go undefeated, finally win the conference, and then miss the NY6 Bowl anyway....I'd feel much better if OK State can beat them on Saturday. Go Cowboys!
  11. Did Boyles play at all this week? I don’t remember seeing him this week.
  12. Houston looked a little shaky at first. I believe they were losing at halftime....At this point in the season, these mean absolutely nothing.
  13. I missed the coin toss last week, but who were our team captains? Does Strong use the same captains all year long or will it change week to week?
