  1. I like Shaun King...and I can see him someday even being our head coach.....but the problems with this offense start and end along the OL. It is young, inexperienced and forced to play true freshmen. I don't care who is calling the plays but if the QB is running for his life or RB has no room to run you are going to get what we are seeing right now: maddening inconsistency. If we can fix the OL in our last 7 games then this 2018 team has a chance to do some work. For example, Donovan Jennings is going to be a great player for USF....he is just not ready yet. He was in over his head many times on Friday but he made some really nice blocks in the 4th quarter when it mattered and it seemed to help his confidence. It also helped that we brought in our new DL-turned OL-turned TE #40 Eric Mayes to help him out. I hope we see more of this moving forward. If we just pound the rock we can win the rest of our games b/c Jordan is a real threat...just see what he is doing with poor OL play...and that sets up the play action where BB11 has shown he can be deadly. Bottom line for me: no changes are going to happen before the end of the season so kind of pointless to kvetch about it.

    Blake Barnett

    This is exactly right. When he is given time to survey the field has a chance to make plays down the field....or take off and run. The last three games teams have figured out how to get pressure and we have not adjusted. I was glad to see them stick Mayes as a blocking TE toward the end of the game...and you saw what happened. BB11 had time to make his throws or take off when his options were exhausted.

    New logo

    Me too....not sure who they tested the new logo with but I'd hate to see the marks that we're not deemed good enough. It's not terrible...but it's not great, which is what you want when you boldly change your brand.

    Men's soccer is 0-4?

    My son played competitive soccer for eight years and his FishHawk teams were always pretty well aligned with USF. Lots of camps, clinics etc by USF' s coaches and Keifer himself. He was a great coach and players liked playing for him. USF was a well respected program for most of George's time at USF so not sure why some folks are knocking his success. The only concern I heard was that he didn't recruit hyper local. Many quality kids didn't get offers as he did well at attracting international players. Jury is still out on the new guy....
  5. ...tacky looking 'Beach section'. I will settle for a stadium that is not in danger of collapsing on itself. If we get greedy may be throw in water fountain or two...

    Critiquing Joey Knight

    Only problem I have with the attendance reporting is that its not an apples to apples comparison when we are compared to Central Florida Clown College. They regularly announce near capacity crowds that just don't compute from mid-game pictures. BTW, ask FSU fans how much they like Matt Baker? I recall him reporting on many unpopular stories on FSU. The bottom line for me is that fans are embarrassed about attendance. However, unlike recruiting and on the field decisions we can actually make a difference here by electing to attend games regardless of when they are played and not watch them on TV. I realize that I am preaching mostly to the choir here...but we had a legit 38K+ crowd last Saturday. Where did these folks come from? Its not like USF just suddenly started winning. IMO, I get tired of the emphasis on attendance but it did create enough noise to get more fans to the game and most importantly....the negative publicity and bad images of an empty stadium for a 5-0 team made the administration greatly improve marketing/outreach efforts and lower prices to make games more accessible to fans....like they used to be when we were drawing 35-45K.

    i will just say that we are lucky that we have a dedicated beat writer. It's no secret that the papers have been trimming costs so i won't be surprised if JK's role is expanded to cover other state teams similar to Matt Baker that covers both UF and FSU. He has already been taken off the USF beat to cover UF.....so go figure.
  10. People love to blame the university, but at the end of day attendance is simply a matter of people making the decision to take a short drive to the stadium and support their alma mater or stay home and make excuses/blame others.
