Hi Guest,

Just a note to point out our TBP-initiated drive to raise funds for the Bulls Football IPF - doing our share, and more.  Please consider donating at least $23 to the effort, and passing on to others as well.  You can read more about the project at the link above.  


Go Bulls!

Thank you,

Brad Brad

  2. What's this AAC thing ya'll keep talking about?
  3. https://www.tampabay.com/sports/usf-bulls/2019/05/01/a-usf-bowl-game-in-boston-dont-hold-your-breath/ "As we all know, bowl games (and the four-letter firm that owns many of them) are about creating matchups that will sell the most tickets and generate the most favorable TV ratings. And for its last bowl, in its home stadium, USF attracted an announced crowd of 14,135. Would Bulls fans travel en masse to Boston for a chance to see their team in a classic venue? Possibly. But nearby Connecticut (if it ever becomes bowl-eligible again) almost certainly would attract a better audience. And Temple’s in a larger TV market. So is Houston, for that matter. And even if the most attractive bowl matchup surfaced for the Bulls (say, USF vs. FSU), conference and bowl officials almost certainly would work in unison to stage that game in Florida (i.e. Gasparilla). None of which is to suggest the Bulls have no shot at the Green Monster. Just figuratively speaking, it’ll be a tough wall to scale"
  4. I think it's fantastic that we (and you know who we are) are embracing the latest in streaming technology (ESPN +). Look, all the cool kids - that elusive but desirable marketing demographic - are all about streaming and not sitting in front of the old skool tee-vee like mom and dad did for the Brut Sun Bowl back in '07 (just six short years before the first Smart TV was available for retail). What a forward thinking move, that's sure to endear our product to a more desirable (ready to part with their foldin' green) consumer base. Do we reaaaaly have a nationwide audience that warrants nationwide 'broadcast' expense? IF we were really going to capitalize on our strength, we'd go the exclusive PPV route. Just imagine the billions of dollars we'd reap, given that USF football fandom is on par with that of UFC (not to be confused with UCF...who are addressing other financial issues at this time). Yes boys and girls, time to jump into the twenty-first century streaming pool and get all sopping wet with revenue. Respectfully, D.

  5. Interesting Green-n-White discussion. We used to be season ticket holders to Publix.
  6. Sat with some WSU alumni at the game. They reside in Vero Beach and came up - last year for UCF - and this year for USF. This is a down year for the Shockers. 'Rebuilding' is the common phrase, and they have a lot of guys who, last year, were playing high school ball on the court getting good experience for the years to come. WS this year is across town from the NCAA teams of late. I don't think we need to risk a broken arm patting ourselves on the back. The first half looked more like high school ball.
  7. I'll swing by Tuesday night and eyeball this alleged bump in attendance myself. Bringing der frau und in-laws so that should skew the headcount towards a more "mature" demographic.
  8. I was speaking in the "we" the university sense of the word.
  9. Wait a minute. Those numbers don't seem to be too far off from what we're pulling in twenty-one years later. Is it possible that our attendance has plateaued? Is it possible that, miracles aside, this is what we could be looking at for the foreseeable future? IF it is, we might not need to build Neyland Stadium 2.0.( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._stadiums_by_capacity).
  10. What was attendance for game #2 in our storied history? They wised up. It was the new shiny object. It was history in the making. Then, as is often the case, the luster wore off. Critical to vitality? That's a tough one. Could we be satisfied with an IPF and another two decades at RayJ?
  11. Well, 5-7 or 6-6, either way, the line item for celebration budget expenditures is safe. No chance of drifting into the red on that one.
  12. Probably don't wanna hear this, but we did the annual closet cleaning before Xmas and hauled a couple of bags down to Salvation Army. Fellas, there was some genuine green-n-gold Bulls regalia in those bags. So, although Santa wisely passed our humble abode this year, there's somebody, somewhere, who will wind up with some second hand gameday apropos athletic wear. As an advisory, if you run across someone wearing an away style USF jersey with the name "Wooly" on the back, it ain't me. I pretty much wore that solely for away games. So you know.
