  1. Although it's nice to speculate on what sort of coach we should be hiring, I just question how long the list of desirable applicants may really be. If USF is just a 'ticket punch' , we may be in the "groom this assistant" business for some time to come. Not sure about the availability of miracle workers or how attractive USF would be to "a proven winner". ๐Ÿ˜ 
  2. Expectations. As we saw late Saturday evening, down in College Station, Texas - yes ANY team is beatable. I just don't see USF beating Houston, Cinci or UCF. Any other game is a roll of the dice...
  3. How are we using the term "people"? If you're referring to USF fans, casual or die hard, I would assume a measure of awareness regarding the schedule. If you're referring to Joe Donut, with absolutely no interest in USF whatsoever - I don't know why they would wonder if USF has a game. Face it, interest in USF football has plummeted. There's probably a more diplomatic way to say that, but since I'm not running for office, I'll just use that term. We can gnaw the reasons for that until the cows come home, but if you're not interested in the product, you're just not interested. Who's playin' this weekend? Georgia? 'Bama? Ohio State? Oklahoma? Oh yea, USF is also playing [insert here]. Oh, it's a bye week? How can you tell? I know, I know, that was mean, and probably could have gone unsaid, but in a moment of weakness...๐Ÿ‘ฟ So, I can't argue that interest in USF football has waned considerably, and we all know - oh yes we do - what will cure that little issue, don't we!?
  4. Well, since there is no universally accepted, ironclad definition of what constitutes "success", I'll just vote for 'Yes, he will be successful'. More wins than losses when he finally packs up his office for greener pastures. USF is, and will be for some time, a stepping stone to "that other table ๐Ÿ˜‰". We're not a destination. As is always the case, I'll just sit and wait...'mostly cause there ain't much of an alternative.
  5. 1. What year was your first USF Football Game? '97: Interesting coincidence, my first USF football game just happens to be the University's first ever football game. Weird, huh?! 2. What year was your first USF Sporting Event? Back in the late 20th century, 1992 - USF Basketball. 3. Do you stream or use cable? We're SLINGERS, baby. Et vous? 4. Do you have a Home Phone? Yep, still retain a landline. 5. Who is your celebrity crush? At 61, and fighting the ravages of time, there is no celebrity crush.
  6. 1) Winning team: BYU2) Final score : BYU 31 x USF 213) Leading rusher: Battle4) Bulls leading receiver: Weaver5) Bulls total offensive yards: 321
  7. Geography. We relocated from Casablanca to Tampa - as the in-laws already owned a house here and we could live rent free. It was strictly a function of proximity. I got my AA from HCC then transferred over to USF. Had we landed anywhere else, proximity would have also been the determining factor in where I went to school.
  8. Just out of curiosity, if the goal is 4.6K, would that be the highest number of accounts the University has held? Was there a higher tally at a previous point in time?
  9. I did for eighteen years ('97~'15) via season ticket (football) donation program.
  10. UCF (4-2), Memphis (3-2) & Navy (3-4) seem beatable? By USF? Not sure I agree with that unless we're using hope/luck as a factor...regardless of what Morgan Freeman thinks.
  11. From our good friends at Go Coastal Carolina University Sports (https://goccusports.com/news/2020/10/18/coastal-football-ranked-in-the-top-25-for-the-first-time-in-fbs-history.aspx) ... "CONWAY, S.C. โ€“ The Coastal Carolina football team made history on Sunday, Oct. 18, as the Chanticleers were ranked No. 24 nationally in the Amway Coaches Poll powered by USA TODAY Sports and No. 25 overall in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll. The top 25 national ranking is the first for the Chanticleers in the program's Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) history (since 2017). The Chanticleers were last nationally ranked in the top 25 in 2016 when they spent the entire season in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) STATS Top 25 poll while playing an FCS schedule and transitioning from the FCS to the FBS level. The newly nationally-ranked Chanticleers (4-0, 2-0 Sun Belt) will host Georgia Southern (3-1, 1-1 Sun Belt) at Brooks Stadium this Saturday, Oct. 24, at noon ET on ESPNU." Our team of statistical research scientists and epidemiologists would say that there is the srtong likelihood that - at this particular instant in time - yes, Coastal Carolina has a better athletic program than USF assuming that football is the primary consideration. We must remember, however, that driving time from Conway, South Carolina to Myrtle Beach is nearly half of the driving time from Tampa to St. Pete Beach, so that has to factor into analysis as well.
  12. Just because it looks like the sun, doesn't mean it is the sun...
  13. I have always felt that it was a step in the right direction when we begin recruiting directly from the stands rather than strictly from high school and JUCO interests. I would assume that there are bus drivers and equipment managers who are also in the peripheral pipeline just waiting to suit up. Progress, gentlemen...progress!
  14. It will be interesting to observe college football this fall. I don't think you're going to see the same product - anywhere - as you would normally expect. But if you're gonna blame COVID on teams not firing on all cylinders, that's a really huge blanket. So there's that PR safety net when the blowouts become more common. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
