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,

  1. Its going to come down to the SMU offense, which is extremely balanced, and USF's defense. SMU's offense ranks: #16 in scoring with 43.5 points per game #17 in total offense with 514 yards per game #26 in passing offense with 297.3 yards per game #35 in rushing offense with 216.8 yards per game
  2. Opening line has SMU as 7 point favorites. Feels low, but a letdown is possible after their big win against their ranked crosstown rival. No look ahead concerns here for SMU as they host Tulsa the following week. This feels like a good place to pair SMU with another team for a teaser. A few other AAC games of note: Navy (+12) at Memphis (Thu.) Georgia Tech (+9.5) at Temple Cincinnati (-3) at Marshall UConn (+41.5) at UCF Houston (-2.5) at North Texas
  3. There is a chance that the AAC could have 3 ranked teams (UCF, Memphis and SMU) by the time rankings come out next weekend.
  4. Even Pitt fans know you don't rush the field when you beat a G5 team team.
  5. Heupel cost them the game by not kicking the field goal in the 4th quarter. Let's see Bianchi lose his mind in tomorrow's paper.
  6. Heupel may have cost UCF the game by not kicking the field goal earlier in the 4th quarter and not calling his last timeout until 15 seconds later.
  7. The men's non-conference basketball schedule was announced last week (below) and while the schedule only includes two games against major conferences in Boston College (ACC) and Florida State (ACC), there are some nice gems in here early if you follow college basketball: Arkansas - Pine Bluff 13-19 in 2018-19 and 10-8 in the Southwest Athletic Conference 2018-19 NET ranking of 321 Projected to finish 3rd in the SWAC this season Returns SWAC Preseason Player of the Year, Guard Martaveous McKnight, who averaged 20.8 points per game and 5.0 rebounds per game Also placed Forward Charles Jackson and Guard Gary Blackston to SWAC Preseason First and Second Teams, respectively Boston College 14-17 and 5-13 in the Atlantic Coast Conference 2018-19 NET ranking of 134 No ACC media projections available at this time Returns only 2 of their top 4 leading scorers from last season IUPUI 16-17 and 8-10 in the Horizon League 2018-19 NET ranking of 207 No Horizon League preseason media polls available at this time Byron Rimm II takes over as head coach for Jason Gardner who resigned after a DIU arrest in August Returns leading scorer Guard Cameron Justice and 2018-19 Horizon League Defensive Player of the Year Guard Jaylen Minnett Wofford 30-5 and 18-0 in the Southern Conference 2018-19 NET Ranking of 14 Defeated Seton Hall in the First Round of the NCAA Tournament before losing to Kentucky 62-56 in the Second Round Finished the 2018-19 season ranked #19 in the ESPN Coaches Poll No Southern Conference preseason media polls available Jay McAuley replaces Mike Young who left to take the Virginia Tech job Lose last year's two top leading scores in Fletcher Magee (20.3 ppg) and Cameron Jackson (14.5 ppg) Loyola Chicago 20-14 and 12-6 in the Missouri Valley Conference 2018-19 NET Ranking of 131 Lost to Creighton in the First Round of the NIT 70-61 Made it to the NCAA Final Four in 2017-18 losing top Michigan in the national semi-final No Missouri Valley Conference preseason media polls available at this time Returns only 2 of their top 4 leading scorers from last season As we get closer to the season I'll preview the teams we are playing December including Furman (reached #23 in the AP poll at one point last season), Utah State (a likely preseason Top 25 ranking), and Florida State (finished #13 in the ESPN Coaches Poll last season after their run to the Sweet 16).
  8. Katz is actually pretty high on this year's team. I see USF potentially finishing as high as 4th in the conference but may depend on how soft the bubble is this year.
  9. I thought I'd circle back with the group and say that I had a 40 minute conversation with Mr. Kelly today and found him to be highly engaging and open to feedback and suggestions. He did a commendable job outlining what he believes the opportunities that USF Athletics has and how his priorities are aligned to ensure that the program is set up for success over then next 20 years. Much of it begins and ends with fundraising - for facilities, to provide resources to athletes, and to further push the USF brand. It was also clear to me that he believes in Charlie Strong but believed the offense needed an overhaul after last season. He certainly has converted me over and plan to increase my financial commitment to USF athletics solely based on his willingness to engage with me. I have no issues saying when I am wrong - and I was wrong (probably lol).
  10. I think this proves that they aren't alot of good comparisons. Anyone who was us, has moved up either decades ago or most recently. Pick any city with 3 of the big 4 professional sports and tell me what football universities exist in those cities where there is a competition for entertainment dollars - the majority of them are P5 schools. Just because it may take time doesn't mean that we should use that argument to lower the bar. The bottom line is we need to be ready for 2025 when the landscape changes again.
