  1. Don’t get me wrong I appreciate @puc86, he’s “right on” in many cases. But the repetition is not helpful. I really think he could have a blog and take off-topic commentary there and be quite successful. I actually enjoy reading his posts until they all start to sound the same. He needs to have more latitude and freedom to be the artist that he is.
  2. When did this site start substituting ****** for “unappealing”?
  3. Who are they playing? Maybe it’s a ****** team.
  4. I’d call it “Being @puc86” I can transfer every post/thread to it. You can run it like a business. Results-oriented.
  5. ATHLETICS GoUSFBulls.com FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Click here to follow USF Women’s Basketball on Twitter Click here to like USF Women’s Basketball on Facebook USF Announces Elite Nonconference Slate That Includes Tennessee, Battle 4 Atlantis & Defending National Champs Stanford The Bulls could face three of the 2021 Final Four teams in consecutive games. TAMPA (Sept. 17, 2021) – University of South Florida women’s basketball head coach Jose Fernandez, has consistently put together impressive nonconference schedules and the 2021-22 edition may be the most impressive yet, ranking as the toughest in the country. Fernandez announced Monday this season’s slate that includes 11 of the Bulls’ potential 16 nonconference foes which advanced to the 2021 postseason, nine of those taking part in the NCAA Tournament. "With the caliber of team, we have returning this type of schedule will not only prepare us for league play but will give us some great opportunities to bolster our SOS (strength of schedule) and NET ranking," said Fernandez. Highlighting this year’s schedule is a stretch that will be hard to match by any program in the nation. After back-to-back home games to open the season against Texas Rio Grande Valley and Alabama State on Tues., Nov. 9 and Thur., Nov. 11, respectively, the Bulls will travel to Knoxville, Tenn., to face long time power Tennessee in the AAC/SEC Challenge on Mon., Nov. 15. Tennessee finished the 2020-21 campaign with a 17-8 record, and a 9-4 mark in the SEC, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament, losing to sixth-seeded Michigan. South Florida will then play four games in two separate events in The Bahamas, potentially facing three of the four teams that took part in the 2021 Women’s Final Four in San Antonio in consecutive games. The Bulls tipoff the four-game stretch in the inaugural Battle 4 Atlantis held at the Atlantis Paradise Island Hotel. The Bulls face Syracuse on Sat., Nov. 20. The Orange finished last season with a 15-9 record and a 9-7 ledger in the ACC, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament, falling to No. 1-seed UConn in the round of 32. South Florida will then face either UConn or Minnesota on Sun., Nov. 21, and close out the Battle 4 Atlantis on Mon., Nov. 22, against either Oregon, Oklahoma, South Carolina or Buffalo. The Huskies, former BIG EAST and American Athletic Conference foes of the Bulls, advanced to the NCAA Final Four national semifinals last season before falling to runner-up Arizona. UConn ended the season with a 28-2 overall record and a perfect 18-0 mark in the BIG EAST. The Golden Gophers were 8-13 overall and 7-11 in the Big Ten Conference. South Carolina, like UConn, advanced to the national semifinals but fell to eventual national champion, Stanford. The Gamecocks closed out 2020-21 with a 26-5 record and a 14-2 record in the SEC. Oregon posted a 15-9 record, and a 10-7 mark in the Pac-12 Conference last season, and fell in the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 to Louisville. Oklahoma was 12-12 and 9-8 in the Big 12, while Buffalo finished 2020-21 15-9 and 11-6 in the Mid-American Conference. Following the Battle 4 Atlantis, the Bulls will travel 20 miles west on the island for the Baha Mar Hoops Pink Flamingo Championship at the Baha Mar Grand Hyatt Hotel Convention Center in Nassau. South Florida will play one game in the event as they take on defending national champion Stanford on Fri., Nov. 26. The Cardinal posted a 31-2 overall record, and a 19-2 record in the Pac 12. South Florida will play two more road games before returning home for two straight contests. The Bulls will travel to the Lone Star State to face UT Arlington on Thur., Dec. 2, and then to Richmond, Va. to butt heads with the defending Atlantic 10 champions, VCU, on Sun., Dec. 12. VCU lost in the NCAA Tournament first round to fourth-seeded Indiana and closed out the campaign with a 16-11 mark and a 10-5 record in conference play. The Green and Gold will return to the friendly confines of the Yuengling Center for back-to-back home games against Stetson on Wed., Dec. 15, and High Point on Fri., Dec. 17.

Last season, South Florida claimed conference regular season and tournament championship while posting a 19-4 overall record, and a 12-2 mark in The American. The Bulls capped an unprecedented season with their seventh NCAA Tournament appearance and sixth trip to the Big Dance in the last nine years. The Green and Gold finished the year ranked No. 19 in the final Associated Press Top 25 poll and No. 18 in the USA Today Sports Coaches Poll. The Bulls rose as high as No. 12 in the AP poll on Feb. 15, USF’s highest ranking ever. Included in their 19 wins were a thrilling 67-63 overtime victory over No. 6 Mississippi State, the highest-ranked team the Bulls have ever defeated, and two victories over rival UCF. The first win against the Knights secured the AAC regular-season crown on March 2 (W, 65-62) and the second the AAC Tournament title on March 11 (W, 64-54). USF defeated Washington State, 57-53, in the NCAA Tournament first round for its first tournament win since March 19, 2016, when it defeated Colorado State, 48-45.

  7. Some potential to place bets within threads...i.e. Puc says USF is going to lose all games Brad says, I think we will win one. Jtrue, our bookie, throws down, odds within the thread and invites others to take them. Seemed like a fun idea, not sure about it..
  8. It's all just speculation until something happens. Maybe Nathan reads the board: And John Lewis has stated something to there will be a plan, indicating it is to be in motion sooner rather than later - even before some of us bite the dust.
  9. Can we agree that one off-topic comment is OK but 14 in a row is getting old. Start a new thread or try a Bulls Pen blog where you (anyone) can ramble on indefinitely.
  10. I can’t imagine what it would be like to have a UCF “friend” or family member or actually anybody that I actually know of that went there. Sorry for that @USFRaider, no one should have to endure that.
  11. Ok kids back off of the name calling, it’s ok to disagree as fellow Bulls.
  12. NEWS COVID-19 SPORTS OP Bulls sure not to underestimate Rattlers September 16, 2021 6:13 pm by Richard Silva, SPORTS CO-EDITOR Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis Jr. said Florida A&M’s defense has impressive speed but is also a well-coached unit. USF ATHLETICS PHOTO Opening up the season against NC State and Florida was always going to be a daunting task, but now the Bulls will have the opportunity to play perhaps a more manageable opponent in Florida A&M. Although the Rattlers (1-1), an FCS team, appear to be a step down from the likes of the Wolfpack and the Gators, USF (0-2) is in no position to disregard them. “We haven’t done anything to be able to look past anybody, that’s for sure,” coach Jeff Scott said in a Tuesday press conference. “They’ve won a lot more games over the past year, year and a half, two years than we have. I think everybody in our room knows that we’ve got a lot of work to do, and I brought that up. “I also brought up that there’s been four or five FCS wins this year, so at the end of the day it’s football, and if you execute you’ve got a chance to win. If you don’t, you can lose against anybody that you play. We’re definitely not in a position to overlook anybody, we’re looking to go out and get our first win of the year.” FAMU didn’t play last season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but in 2019, the Rattlers were 9-2 with one of their losses coming into the season opener against UCF. The Rattlers have split their first two games of the season this time around, but the defense has proved formidable in both contests, allowing just seven points apiece to Jackson State in a 7-6 loss and Fort Valley State University in a 34-7 win. “Their speed in the backend is really good,” offensive coordinator Charlie Weis Jr. said in a Zoom press conference Wednesday. “Their safeties and their nickel [and] sam do a really good job. [They] play fast, [they] play physical, [they] take away a lot of things right there. The other thing is they’re extremely well-coached. “Those guys do a great job on their defensive staff, those guys know exactly where they’re supposed to be, they know how to fit plays … They’re going to make you have to execute to beat them. They just do a fantastic job of being coached in the backend and up front. So I think they are well-coached, [they] have great team speed, and that’s obviously a recipe for a really good defense.” One of the more premier players on that defensive unit is graduate student safety Antwan Collier who transferred to the Rattlers from UCF in the offseason. Collier played three seasons with the Knights and started all 13 games at safety in 2019 before being dismissed from the team in November 2020 and entering the transfer portal soon after. “When I saw [Florida A&M’s] depth chart this week, I remembered playing him in 2019 when I was at FAU, and he made a whole bunch of plays that day,” Weis Jr. said of Collier. “Immediately when that came out, [I was like] ‘Ok, they’ve got a good safety in the backend.’ Rest of Story
  13. You have the added characteristic of being a Bucs fan, which makes it look almost normal to you.
  14. This happens to so many members, you've seen it. So it is possible.
  15. ^^^^^^ I guess the auto-post isn't quite ready for prime time - here is a screen shot from the raffle: Congratulations @Outlaw! Make sure your email used on this site is correct, they will be coming your way.
  16. Had one when I lived in Tampa. Had a couple guys on here, the @___ Eats It and @cophbulls I think had them not to mention our photogs @MikeG and @Old Baldy. Never thought @puc86 would want to report, but it sure would be interesting. Puc with a helmet cam for capturing video and protection.
  17. Well, let's wait and see where @puc86 weighs in on this, he might actually like this conference.
