Hi Guest,

Just a note to point out our TBP-initiated drive to raise funds for the Bulls Football IPF - doing our share, and more.  Please consider donating at least $23 to the effort, and passing on to others as well.  You can read more about the project at the link above.  


Go Bulls!

Thank you,

  1. I didn't think Antigua would be successful but I also didn't think he would be that bad either. I thought that he would improve the talent at USF but that was about it. Turns out he didn't even do that. Another nail in the coffin of the Calipari coaching tree. I don;t the answer but has any Calipari assistant coach been successful as a head coach? I can't think of any.
  2. He might be an excellent recruiter. The Ivy league has some strong recruiting rules and limitations on student athletes. To highlight a few of them There is a weighted score that indicates about how the athlete would perform academically at that school. This involves SAT I, SAT II, and G.P.A. This rates the athletes in relation to the average student at the school. Athletes are then classified as A, B, C, or D. Each school can only recruit a specific number of students in each classification. The number of students in each classification is set by the conference and is individually for each sport and school. Thus the Princeton number of A, B, C, and D athletes may be different from Harvard. This means that recruiting is very specific as to the caliber of the student. Students athletes must be admitted by the dean of the university. Coaches can try to persuade the dean for a specific athlete but most must stand on their own. This is similar to our academic review board. There is a limit to the total number of student athletes a university can have for all sports. Thus, scholarships must be parceled out between all the sports that the school offers. They use a most likely letter instead of NLI, which means that student athletes are not legally bound to the school. They can change their minds even after signing a most likely letter. These rules indicate that he needs to be sure about his recruited athletes academically before recruiting them and needs to secure commits early. Because of the most likely rule coaches need to constantly keep in touch with their recruits to keep them on board. They also tend to emphasize the academics of the school rather than the more traditional amenities. If he is a good recruiter in the Ivy league I think he can adjust to the easier recruiting rules of FBS and FCS.
  3. Shame I think Texas State would be a good fit for Gilbert. He is very Texas centric and I don't think he can adjust to Florida skill sets.
  4. Time to face reality, Strong is 2 - 7 against teams with a winning record (not counting Elon, counted a 6-6 Temple last year). A decent coach should go .500 against teams with winning records that have about the same level of talent. A good coach wins more than half the games against teams with winning records. His trend is downward, the team regressed over the course of the year. Strong is not getting it done and is going backwards.
  5. Fear of spiders is called arachnophobia, Fear of close spaces is called claustrophobia, Fear of Tyre McCants is called a survival instinct.
  6. One thing to consider with this record. ECU, UMass, and UConn each had two weeks to prepare for USF and Tulsa had three more days than we did.
  7. I had to leave open a loss on the third down play but that didn't happen
  8. Well, I think Kronkrite failed to get to 100 yards so his streak is broken. On a side note 602 yards.
  9. Apparently not anymore. Haven't heard from Vivonetto since the first game. Can't still be sick can he?
