Hi Guest,

In our efforts to raise funds for USF Football, the site is giving away a football season full of ad-free surfing at The Bulls Pen.

Would you consider buying a ticket or two to the raffle that will award this to you or a fellow member of the board?

Each ticket purchase goes directly to our effort to raise $10K in "fan money" for the program.  Below is the link:

Thank you,

Brad Brad

  1. I really haven't paid much attention to this guy. I remember the desk video that was weird. I am starting to really not like him, which isn't a good thing if you are in marketing. Is this really this guy's twitter feed? https://twitter.com/hiceschool?lang=en What is up with that picture? Who is he trying to be....Dracula...a member of Sha Na Na?
  2. I know this sounds incredibly obvious but why doesn't Joe Hice run his ideas by the actual "Marketing" faculty before he makes any decisions? It appears Joe wanted to talk about the logo some more yesterday. I am not sure why he would think it would be good PR to bring this Logo Issue back up and explain himself but apparently he believes 4 months is plenty long enough to stay quiet about one of the largest failures on his watch. Apparently his ego got the better of him. I wonder if he reached out to those "influencers" prior to actually doing his little PowerPoint presentation yesterday. I tend to doubt it. The funniest thing learned from the Q&A is that they actually did reach out to Merrill Lynch for their input so it clearly wasn't lost on them that they just copy and pasted their logo. https://www.bizjournals.com/tampabay/news/2019/09/20/usf-marketing-director-offers-up-a-cautionary-tale.html https://www.thedailystampede.com/2019/9/19/20875042/joe-hices-latest-comments-show-how-little-he-gets-it
  3. No need to worry. Whatever is going to happen will happen.
  4. Gotta crawl before you can walk. Kelly has made clear he is looking at this long term. Keep calm and whatever. He sees the hand he has been dealt and is playing it out. Keep in mind, he hasn’t extended CCS which is common when you have 3 years left on a contract. He inherited CCS and knows he is stuck with him for the time being. What has made things difficult is the insane expectations of the fan base prior to the season, New Offense, between graduates and transfers, 1/3 of your team is new, the O line isn’t good, ending last season with 6 straight losses. It seemed many were expecting 8-4 to 10-2. How!?!? What was that based on?
  5. I don't think it could be understated that not only was the offense changed but the entire culture was changed. I think it is fair to say CWT was fairly open to whatever the kids are into. If they want a different uniform every game or want to participate in "other fun", he didn't really care. CCS is much more interested in instilling character in these guys. So for example, CWT didn't mind scoring that last TD on Frost and UCF in 2016. CCS would never allow that. Not saying one is better than the other but I think CCS was more more interested in blowing up the entire culture that was at USF which requires starting over. I don't think any of us really saw that coming with the hire.
  6. I keep hearing and seeing the challenges on the O-line. Can anyone break down what works and what doesn't? Atterbury looked bad at RG as well as his previous two games at left tackle. I saw some plays where Marcus Norman was getting beat and earlier in the week we heard Hopple was pushing him for RT. Did anyone pay any attention to Donovan Jennings at LT? I didn't notice him. I haven't heard much about Cecil or Harris. Has anyone seen Joshua Blanchard play as to how far away he may be?
  7. I guess my question is what would CCS have to do to get fired with a $5 million buyout? I know many will say the damage done to the program if he stays another season will exceed $5 million dollars but has anything out of Kelly and administration led anyone to believe that they would cough up $5 million plus whatever would be owed to the assistants plus whatever it would cost to hire a new staff?
  8. Sails is something else. Enjoyed his play tonight.
  9. I think it has to do with his loyalty. CCS is always going to try and go with the Senior over a freshman. Slade transferred here somewhat because of Barnett. I think in CCS’s mind, the SCSU game is a game that should get split time for the QB anyway so start the senior and then let the Freshman play the 2nd half. Then practice during the bye week. If you make a switch, the logical place to do it is the SMU game.
  10. I hope the best for The Jim. I will be the first to admit that I was included in the masses who had grown weary of him back in 2009. Obviously my opinion of CJL was incorrect and I think he would have thrived at the AAC level. He was doing the best he could with what resources he had. He didn’t really have a chance. He had created sky high expectations in 2007 from the fan base. Steve Duemig and Brett McMurphy along with ESPN incessantly bashed him which I think impacted the overall opinion of him. He was at a program that really didn’t support athletics seriously. I think Jim panicked a little but even if he hadn’t met with Joel Miller, I think the admins would have still fired him because the PC world demanded their pound of flesh along with Mangino and Leach. It was like a perfect storm.
  11. K-9. Ha, ha. These kids and their nicknames.
  12. I’d rather lose against the better teams and then play our conference games. Basically we play 4 exhibition games each season plus the bowl game (if you get one). I’d much rather see Jonathan Taylor wax us than watch us beat Eastern Mississippi Community College.
  13. Seriously, though, I anticipate Blake Barnett and the O line might actually look really good this week. i think even the following week during the bye....they should put up some good numbers.
