  1. The first year of the USF men's basketball team, !970-1971, Tommie Davis, one of our guards, shot a jump shot to attempt his free throws like Hal Greer. Tommie was a very good free throw shooter. I know this first hand because I was a student manager for that first Golden Brahman basketbull team.
  2. I don't think Miami wants a coach whose team has lost six consecutive games. They maybe would choose Manny Diaz but, of course, he is now the coach at Temple.
  3. A sports writer in this morning's South Florida Sun-Sentinel predicts USF-Marshall in the Boca Raton Bowl December 18.
  4. Are we soon going to be known as a basketball school rather than a football school? Maybe.
  5. For anyone on the message board who were early 1970's fans of Brahman Basketbull, I have to say these guys: Doug Aplin, Penny Greene, Phil Shelp, Fred Gibbs, Tommy Davis ( he shot his free throws as a jump shot). the late John Kiser, Bill Lear, Arthur Jones, Bob Frohman, Ike Robinson, and Leaky Smith. My favorite coach was Coach Bill Gibson. He only coached The Golden Brahmans for one season, 1973-1974 before his untimely death from a heart attack in July of 1974. He was the second USF basketbull coach. He was hired away from the University of Virginia after our first coach, Don Williams, retired. Coach Gibson was named the ACC basketball coach of the year a year or two before arriving in Tampa. He took over the basketball program before we were in a conference and before the Sun Dome existed. We played our home games in the Curtis Hixon Convention Center and the old Tampa armory when pro wrestling was not taking place.
  6. I don't like FSU but I hate UF because their fans think their **** don't stink.. Screw them both!
  7. As I wrote on the message board last week, I am a math tutor for FAU football players. Kiffin has completely turned around the football program and many students now wear FAU apparell. There is much excitement around the FAU campus about the Lane Train. Kiffin runs a very fast-paced no huddle offense. They have a very young team who will again win the C-USA east division title next year. If Charlie Strong leaves, I would very much want Kiffin to be our coach. However, I agree, he will only leave Owl Nation ( I know that is funny) for a power five conference not our beloved Bulls.
  8. It is so embarassing and sad seeing thousands of empty seats on national television. Cannot blame Charlie Strong if he chooses to accept another coaching job at a real football school. I sure do not like writing this.
  9. I sincerely hope Charlie Strong will remain at USF for many more years. However, when the inevitable happens, I recommend we pursue Lane Kiffin as our next football coach. I know all of you think I am deranged but I will explain my reasoning. I am a math tutor for freshmen football players at FAU. All of the kids I tutor love Kiffin. Each one of them told me they chose to attend FAU because of Coach Kiffin. These kids had legitimate scholarship offers from schools like LSU, Georgia, Kentucky and Michigan. Kiffin is quietly building a Conference USA powerhouse. The Owls are currently 6-3 and are on a five game winning streak. They play at Louisiana Tech this Saturday. You know that's a win playing Skip Holtz's team. They should end the regular season 9-3 before playing in a bowl game. FAU was 3-9 last season before Kiffin took over. The FAU defense leads the nation in interceptions and their offense is 23rd in the nation in total yards gained. They recently gained a Conference USA record 804 yards against Western Kentucky. Of course, Lane Kiffin comes with some baggage, we know he would probably leave USF for a power five school but so would almost any football coach. Again, i hope Charlie Strong stays a Bull for a long time but just in case, we should consider Kiffin, who is doing an amazing turnaround job at FAU.
  10. I am SO PISSED! My wife knows nothing about football but she even said "how can the defense let this happen?"
  11. I have all you guys beat. I'm an old fart. I moved into Eta room 209 in September 1969 for my freshman year from New Rochelle, New York. The men's basketball team did not start to play until November 1970 with an all freshman team. The team played only junior colleges and junior varsity teams from UF and FSU. We could only dream about a Brahman football team. Most USF students were Gator football fans I would love to be a USF student now with us having a top 25 football team. GO BULLS!!!
  12. Wow, that was a very quick hire by Mark Harlan! I'm sure Mr. Harlan had to hire Billy Mohl quickly before he was off to South Carolina with Kingston. Seems like a very good choice. I'm getting tired of USF being a stepping stone school. It would be nice if USF was a destination school. I guess this will remain true until we join a Power 5 conference. GO BULLS!!!
  13. I was recently at Pittsburgh airport wearing a green USF t-shirt. As i walked around the airport, a guy shouted "Go Bulls." In 1974 when I graduated from South Florida, very few people outside of Florida knew of our school. It's awesome that USF is so well known now all around the country! That's what college sports does for a university.
  14. April 10 is the first night of Passover. Unfortunately, not a good night for some of us to attend this function.
