  1. Meanwhile in Austin... https://www.kxan.com/sports/2-ut-football-players-test-positive-for-covid-19-1-positive-for-antibodies/
  2. https://www.burntorangenation.com/2020/6/2/21277956/longhorn-republic-podcast-texas-longhorns-usf-bulls Another updates on the pending Battle of the Bovines
  3. I think CBG does things the right way. Period. As an all- around package, he is one of my favorite USF coaches of all time, and I have seen a lot of them come and go. I think it would be a grave mistake not to give him a full opportunity to develop the program to meet his vision.
  4. Back in the day when I played (shortly after they removed the peach baskets from the walls and took the cages from around the court but when you could still call a team the Bullets) Wes was one of our idols. Everyone tried to copy that two-handed overhead pass but no one could come close.
  5. https://www.hookem.com/2020/05/20/austin-health-officials-skeptical-large-crowds-gathering-texas-football-2020/ Gives the phrase "Face masking: 15 yards" a whole new meaning.
  6. With all that has been going on in the world of late and my own personal plate pretty full, it has been a long time since I have reached out to this board. Being isolated has given me lots of time to think and take stock. After nearly a half century of long-suffering fandom of the USF Bulls (nee the South Florida Golden Brahmans), I finally figured out that the one thing that has been consistent during all these years of USF's athletic struggles: ME. Thus, I have made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of my alma mater and have surrendered my season tickets and moved out of state. I am confident that now, without me as an albatross as a necktie, that this will finally free up all our programs to achieve the success they so richly deserve and we will see the championships begin to roll in when college athletics restarts somewhere about the year 2525 ("If man is still alive; If woman can survive.....") I will miss the games, the personal interaction student athletes, coaches and staff and the camaraderie with fellow USF alums and Bulls fans. But desperate times call for desperate actions. I will continue to support my Bulls, though with appropriate social distancing -- from several states away. My best to all Bulls everywhere. Here is wishing you all fare well, come what may.
  7. Yes, I figured out what it was doing in the breakdown but, still, seeing the front page unpaid invoice balance was still quite a shocker. I would suggest that should be handled differently.
  8. Yikes! In the category of cardiac arrest, the balance due on my on-line renewal invoice for my four football season tickets reads $18,686.35. Apparently Coach Strong's buyout and Coach Scott's buy-in have been allocated among the season ticketholders. Yikes!

  9. The great thing about good ol' USF is that bar to measure improvement is so low. As I have for nearly the past half decade, I will keep my expectations in check and hope for the best.
  10. Wow! Well, at least it's good to know whoever takes over as coach now will be with us for a long, long time and lead us to unparalleled success, e.g., several BCS titles, our invitation to the SEC and packed houses at all the games at our Taj Majal on-campus stadium, Leavitt Field!
  11. *YAWN* Sorry, I nodded off just after Thanksgiving dinner. Has something been happening on the political and USF sports fronts?
  12. Given my track record over the last 48 seasons one might conclude my Bulls might be better off if I don't show up!
  13. I think some forget we had ZERO basketball team two years ago. As usual, I think some here overreacted to last year in getting unreal expectations and are in turn now overreacting because of what has occurred thus far. The goal is to improve over the course of the season and improve each season over the last. I am not happy about it either but if we improve then that is all I can ask. It is a long season and I will watch it play out (the last time we went to the dance our team looked absolutely horrible in initial games). If we don't improve, then I will start to grumble. That said, if anyone thinks the loss of Yetna and Kiir amounts to simply the loss of "a couple of players" then they don't understand basketball and really don't understand this team.
  14. I agree. Even met her at a basketball loss to UCF but I would take all those losses as long as I got her in the bargain.
  15. Me, I'm thinking of adopting a nice Division 2 program somewhere in the mountains and giving up on this impossible-to-win D-1 arms race.
