  1. Trying to put the most positive spin I can on your concerns, the question from the interviewer was "What can you tell us about the three newcomers that have joined the program?" I'm assuming Murphy hasn't joined the program yet so wouldn't have been covered ........... although you'd think Herrion would maybe have just tossed hm in there since he's the only other one being added, but I feel more comfortable just sticking to my first explanation.
  2. That plateau was more like a speed bump than a pinnacle, along with another, little lower, speed bump in 2017 & 2018.
  3. Do you mean susceptible to contract the disease or susceptible to die from the disease? The answers differ, I believe ....
  4. I highlighted the sentence that started with "My point was". Stuff that matters usually follow those words. I agree with treatment for HIV is not a cure but not the second point he was making which is why I commented on that ........... and the only 'Day' I can relate to right now is Bill Murray's "Groundhog Day".
  5. He made perfectly clear what his point was he was clarifying .... .... and I commented on that. The only foolishness here so far is you somehow coming up with the brilliant observation that my response indicated that I'd prefer getting HIV to the C-19. Hopefully it's stopped raining there so you're outside now doing something productive.
  6. Next time you want to take bait, please make sure it's being thrown out there. I have no clue where you're getting that response from. I Quoted a post and made a comment based on what was in that post. I went back and highlighted the particular part of that post I addressed for those that apparently didn't grasp it.
  7. Corona puts the fear of God in people because, unlike all those things you mentioned which are conscious choices, C-19 is a stealthy *****. I do agree that life has to go on but we need to do it smartly.
  8. I think 4, that were actually listed as qb's during the season, may be tops ..... which could be case this year when/if we actually get to a season.
  9. Agree that these type articles are kind of ludicrous but if you're going to do it, ranking a head coach that's actually won a game at this level over one that hasn't isn't ludicrous ....
  10. He'd probably have to pretty much go undefeated in that time to make that leap ............ which works for me.
  11. TAMPA, MAY 19, 2020 – University of South Florida Athletics continued to see academic success reach ever-higher levels as a record 13 programs logged perfect single-year scores and the department posted an overall record 995 single-year score when the NCAA released its most recent Academic Progress Rate (APR) data Wednesday. All 16 of the Bulls' evaluated programs logged a multi-year APR score of 959 or better, a baseline that rose 12 points over the last report, to well exceed the NCAA's minimum APR standard score of 930. Meanwhile, 13 programs posted a score of 975 or better. The NCAA's 2020 multi-year APR scores comprise data from the previous four academic years. "Our student-athletes and coaches' commitment to academic success, as well as our tremendous Academic Services staff and top-notch academic facilities – such as the Fishman Family Center – continue to deliver record-setting results in the classroom," Vice President of Athletics Michael Kelly said. "I'm very proud of what we have accomplished and the student-athletes who continue to achieve their academic goals." Among the 13 programs to post perfect single-year APR scores for 2018-19 was men's basketball, which continues to see its academic success accelerate under head coach Brian Gregory, who completed his third season in 2019-20. Also earning perfect single-year scores were baseball, men's cross country, men's golf, men's soccer, men's tennis, women's cross country, women's golf, softball, women's soccer, women's tennis, women's track and field and volleyball. The Bulls saw nine teams post perfect single-year APR scores of 1,000 for the 2017-18 academic year, up from four teams to do so the year prior. Both the football program (979) and women's soccer program (997) posted record multi-year scores, football surpassing the mark of 973 set in 2013. The American Athletic Conference champion women's soccer program, led by head coach Denise Schilte-Brown, posted a record multi-year APR score for the fourth straight year. Rest of article
  12. As has been opined before on here, we are so far ahead of the curve on being set up for this it's not even funny ....
  13. By Joey Knight Published 2 hours ago Updated 2 hours ago USF athletics as you knew it before the coronavirus’ rampage remains intact. To this point, the Bulls haven’t been forced to lay off staffers, eliminate sports or even impose furloughs. Which isn’t to say they haven’t gone through this crisis unscathed. Athletic director Michael Kelly said Thursday that his department must trim 15 percent from its budget for the 2020-21 academic year. He has spent part of the self-isolation period collaborating with coaches and senior staffers on where the trims will occur. “It’s been a collaborative process,” Kelly said in a video conference with the Tampa Bay Times. “I certainly wanted coaches to be a part of (the discussions). It’s not easy for anybody, but I don’t feel it’s appropriate for me to just cut without the knowledge about how to handle your department.” ... While Kelly didn’t specify where USF’s cuts would occur, he acknowledged some coaches volunteered to have their salaries reduced, a measure that has yet to be implemented. Whether more drastic measures are required hinges on how the pandemic affects fall revenues. Rest of article
  14. If our winning status withstood Rygol leaving, this should be just a blip ...
  15. He found a potential home ... unless I'm missing something.
  16. From 247sports ... ByWill Turner May 18, 3:59 PM USF defensive end Tyrik Jones has entered the transfer portal. (Photo: Will Turner, 247Sports) For the third time in a week, the USF Bulls have lost a player to the NCAA transfer portal. A source confirmed to Bulls247 on Monday that rising senior defensive end Tyrik Jones has entered the transfer portal. Jones played in seven games in 2019 and registered six tackles and a sack, which came against Georgia Tech at the start of September. He was stuck behind Kirk Livingstone, Greg Reaves and Darius Slade on the depth chart this past season, but considering all three graduated, he was expected to have a larger role heading into the spring season, which was ultimately canceled after just one practice. Jones was the lone senior in that position room. A three-star recruit coming out of Arizona Western College in the 2019 recruiting class, he chose the Bulls over a verbal offer from Hawaii. He was ranked as the No. 12 junior college weak-side defensive end, according to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite rankings. He originally signed with Bowling Green. USF was set to return just four sacks along the defensive line. That number shrinks to three with the departure of Jones.
  17. It is a pretty big loss and not sure why someone hasn't brought this up sooner ...... especially when we have a thread on Kirk Rygol entering the portal. Going to pull these out and set up new thread.
  18. I think small is an understatement. More like minuscule ...... at least in here.
  19. Ah, got it. Didn't see that part. I was wondering if you were maybe referring to the new punter commit putting in some time at DE. He's the perfect size for a speedy edge rusher ...... Honestly, I don't think the two player movements are related, just coincidental. Punter just appears to be part of the 2021 signing class as an early enrollee.
  20. I did just edit post a little to read "They made an economic/political decision" and I think there are a ton of people torn about this.
  21. Honestly, I understand where you're coming from. Bottom line, though, is that this relaxing of the lockdown isn't scientifically based and this is where certain governmental factions sound like ******* idiots saying it is. They made an economic/political decision and are rolling the dice ....... and I'm selfishly torn with that decision.
