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.

  1. So when do we add the Alabama travel thread? It's got to be better than that 2003 fiasco in Birmingham (150 degrees Fahrenheit on the field and I had seat 31 in a row with only 30 seats). And do we get served up in lieu of the usual pre-Auburn cupcake? I bet not.
  2. FIFY. But ain't it always the case. At one past auction I had actually won some significant items in the silent auction only to have them move them to the live auction and wipe out my high bid with deep pockets. Oh, well, the better for USF athletics. Anyway, I had a good time and want to thank everyone who attended, donated or helped in the revival of this event and thank staff for great job in restructuring and focusing the event. Go Bulls!
  3. Expect all the short-lived logo material to be on sale at deep discount at the auction tomorrow.
  4. Used to be one of my neighbors. Encountered him often on the Feather Sound golf course or drinking at the Courtside. Whenever the topic turned to USF it got ugly. Still, I will wish condolences to those loved ones he left behind.
  5. Interesting discussion. The auction, prior to being killed by our last AD, has always been one of the Athletics Departments best events. I have always had a great time and gotten any number of neat items at the auction over the years including: Golfing with Jim Leavitt and Lee Roy Selmon; a suite for Southern Miss win at home and several suites for the Rays. But perhaps the most interesting was a trip to our first game at UConn before being conference foes when they played on campus in Storrs. As a bonus we took a behind-the scenes-tour to ESPN studios and went on-stage with Trey Wingo. The next day the game was played in the teeth of a Nor'easter's winds. Bill Grammatica attempted a field goal into that wind and the ball actually backed up when it hit its highest trajectory. Still, we took advantage when the wind was at our backs and we won 21-13. Look forward to seeing all the Bulls' supporters at the rebirth of this great event.
  6. Oddly, Rocky's birthday coincides with mine and yet, after years of supporting his habits, he never gets me anything.
  7. It was a fun night of good basketball played before an enthusiastic crowd with a Bulls' win to boot. After what I have experienced in recent years I will take it. Thanks. Also, this team finally makes me optimistic for the next season. I am proud of this team and the way they played.
  8. Have had my tickets for every game and enjoyed all I could attend (I missed last night because of work and family commitments). Glad we had the chance to watch these guys play together and develop more.
  9. Maybe we'll need to move it to the Trop to accommodate all the fan demand.
  10. What a deal! Imagine, a tourney where the ticket price gets lower as you advance in the rounds. I got mine already. Hope I am not alone.
  11. Still playing fun and exciting basketball! Who knew Antun Maricevic would have a career game? A shame no one saw it. If a Bulls opponent falls at the Ying-A-Ling and no one hears it, does it make a sound? Fans will get another chance Thursday. Looking forward to continuing the ride.
  12. The first half was butt ugly but the second half had me and the other dozen or so fans on our feet almost the whole time. See the gang again Monday.
  13. That's what special fundraiser Tony Soprano said anyway. Seriously though, being an effective major university president in modern times takes an almost impossibly diverse set of experience and skills just to appeal to the various constituencies. For my part, I would like a little Betty Castor, a little Judy Genshart, a little Barack Obama and a whole lot of Teddy Roosevelt. https://www.higheredtoday.org/2017/12/04/evolving-nature-college-presidency/
  14. I will be there per usual, in my midcourt seats.
