  1. I think Alvarado was supposed to be a punter, but got thrown into the kicking job.
  2. Still have the SI with the article about the Florida 4. As far as football, I am not totally sold on all ills being worked out. Offense was only one unit. Special Teams and Defense still have same coaches leading the units. Until proven otherwise I don't have so much confidence in BJM as an FBS Coordinator and special teams has been horrible for two years running. Our kick off guy didn't put more than a handful of kicks past the 10. The offense should/will be better. The rest is still a mystery at this point.
  3. Don't know what to expect on offense, but I have very little confidence in BJM and the defense. That worries me most.
  4. Money loser on the surface and in the short run. If the extra playing experience, learning how to win meaningful games and confidence going in to next year translates to bigger crowds, bigger wins, attracting better recruits in the future it could turn out to be a worthy investment. Too early to tell. If I recall correctly, the ladies run of successful tourney appearances was preceded by a WNIT appearance in the championship game? Was it a win. I don't remember, but it was the last building block in their recent success. Maybe not an exact comparison, but it may turn out to be a great investment for the future of the program.
  5. Good to know there is a playbook. Happier to hear we actually have pass plays thrown inside the numbers. Haven’t seen a post in over 2 seasons.
  6. I don't know who he was jawing at, but that T was on Macmurray, who played his first two years here. He was talking crap to someone on the bench
  7. Statistically the defense 2017 was better with a bunch of NFL caliber athletes and many 3 and 4 year starters, situationally that defense was still lost at key times. Anyone recall 4th and 24? What concerned me about last years defense was our guys were out of position so often and did not improve upon that issue . Until I see consisten improvement I have little confidence in the defensive coaching staff. My opinion is that BJM is a nice guy, loyal to Strong, maybe a good position coach, but is outmatched by accomplished OCs in this league and is a CUSA DC at best
  8. We go into the season withthe same DC. Untilproven otherwise, I have zero confidence that he is a high level DC. There needs to be a huge jump on both sides of the ball for me to have any confidence in attaining a winning season. I think we have enough athletes and playmakers on offense that, hoping Bell can put together an offensive scheme , can show improvement on offense. Same leader on defense is a huge cause for concern.
  9. Wait, you are saying CB was not an elite shooter? The dude led the country in scoring for almost an entire season when there was not a 3 point arc. He also didn't really have another great scorer to play off and opponents tried to take him out of the game by using a box and one against him. He still got his points and I believe he still holds the record for best scoring percentage (I could be wrong on that one). Your point about not have having a second great scorer on pretty much any team we have had is valid and needs to addressed for us to take the next step.
  10. I know they are young and that is why they are so streaky, but as well as they play at times, there are streaks they go through in every game where it looks like they have never played the game before. It is all about growing up, basketball wise, I guess. Why are we so bad at free throws?
  11. Talking about coaches, how is Lee Rose not in USF Hall of Fame? Along with bringing the first post season appearances to Basketball, in my opinion did as much as anyone to lay the foundation for USF sports to be where we are now. He was the original “most powerful” guy on campus.
  12. ECU's Leday is Zach Leday's brother. I have only watched a few games this year. I know they are young and a lot of guys playing together for the first time this year, but I see a lot of hustle on this team. If they don't hustle all the time they struggle. Hopefully, building a good foundation for the future. Need a pure scorer.
  13. I don't know many he is responsible for, but there are 12 Florida kids on their roster. Princeton is getting kids from all over the country.
