  1. Admitted it was his, but denied he had been smoking because he “just bought it” and said he only smokes in his room. Only a civil citation & was likely paid because he would’ve been arrested if it wasn’t. My guess is he didn’t report it to the university or team which is likely a violation of team rules and university code of conduct.
  2. Pulled over for busted tail-light. Car reeked of marijuana. Multiple grams found in the car. If you want to know more, send me a PM.
  3. I heard some stuff about Salomon that happened around the beginning of the season. After I found out, I was worried he wouldn’t finish the year with the team. Willing to bet it’s related.
  4. Something I think we saw with CWT that we haven't seen the last few years seems to be the few signing day surprises we used to get. That's what elevated our recruiting classes to the top of the AAC every year. I'm not a fan of settling for the 3rd-6th best class in the conference.
  5. He got hired by ESPN this past summer as an analyst and has been calling some games for them this season. He also stops by some of the radio shows and typically provides very knowledgeable takes. Not your typical talking head.
  6. So I'm a regular Sirius XM ESPNU radio listener. This morning The First Team (Taylor Zarzour and Greg McElroy) had Dan Orlovsky on the phone talking about UCF and the CFB Playoff. They touched on their matchup with us on Friday and then Taylor asked Dan about the Bulls and what's happened to us. Dan provided a pretty solid hot take IMO and I transcribed it below to share with you all: Taylor Zarzour - Speaking of USF Dan, what happened to this team? This was a team that early in the season, they knocked off Georgia Tech, they beat Illinois, I know that they had a lot of roster turnover in Strong’s 2nd year, Blake Barnett’s thrown a bunch of INT’s, the defense has struggled. What’s going on with the Bulls right now? Dan Orlovsky - Yeah so offensively, they’re just, they’re in my opinion, in watching them on tape, they’re still stuck in 8 years ago. I mean ALL they do is tempo, and they just, there’s no emphasis offensively to be just like “ok let’s get Barnett a couple of completions, let’s get him an easy throw.” “Ok how can we help some of our receivers Salomon and McCants, how can we help those guys in man coverage?” Because all they do, the great majority of all they do is just take go routes, whether they’re inside fades from the slot or go routes on the outside… kind of those switch release concepts. You know it’s just very simplified and defenses have gone “ok these are the 3 or 4 things they do in their pass game and we are just going to force them to do 45 yard completions down the field on a constant basis,” and they haven’t been able to hit them so that’s been a big part about what’s gone on with their offense. They just get themselves, you know on 1st down they’ll take a go shot, and on 2nd down they’ll run the ball and get 2 or 3 yards and then its 3rd and 7. They live in 3rd and long, I mean they live in 3rd and long and then they’ll just go throw deep balls again and that’s really what’s hindered their offense and they don’t get into any kind of rhythm, they don’t open their playbook up because they don’t get 1st downs. You know defensively, they’ve really been hampered by the loss of the MLB Sawtelle. You know he got hurt so they moved a DE in to the MLB position. I watched them early, I had them against Tulsa and I was like “this defense is pretty good, they can run to the football, they play coverage well.” It just seems like they miss the MLB Sawtelle so much with their communication because guys get out of position. But they do some things well, guys just get out of position and it just doesn’t look like a team that is in tune with what they are doing defensively. But I will say this, they are asked to do a ton because of the offensive inefficiency. I mean there’s a lot of pressure on them to play well. You know they’ve lost 4 in a row, but 3 out of those 4, excluding the handling by Houston a month ago, they were up 17 last week on the road in Temple, they went into Cincinnati and were up against Cincinnati, it’s just they get into the 2nd half and have played so many plays on defense because their offense is struggling so much and they get kind of worn out.
  7. Could be that Reaves is a leader on the defense, more vocal, and can call the plays/alignments.
  8. I found it pretty comforting Strong has experience in dealing with this offense in the past. If we could get it done against Navy with Woodie as DC, I’m optimistic we can get it done with a real DC and defensive minded HC.
  9. Sorry, just saw this. But glad you were able to get it to work!
  10. So I'm not sure if you all are aware, but a buddy just asked me to grab him some tickets for this Saturday's game through my USF Season Ticket account. I of course logged in to oblige and was able to snag him 4 tickets in Section 208 for $20 a piece with a "special group discount." If you know anyone that wants to go, you can't beat the $20 price tag for club access. I'm sure other areas of the stadium may be even cheaper! Lets pack Ray Jay!!!!
  11. I've been planning on building one as well, with the intent on having it done for next season. I'd like to have a concession window with an awning on the side, but i'm just not sure how difficult it would be to install or if I should just purchase the trailer with one already. Did you do any research on that by any chance?
  12. Sale was awesome and it was cool to see so many fans on campus on a random Wednesday afternoon. I was expecting things to be a bit more expensive, but forgot that Adidas is coming in soon so they needed to get rid of everything. Polos, 1/4 zips, button downs, etc. at $12, jackets and warmups were about $15, hats/gloves $5. I couldn't believe the deals and probably went a bit overboard lol. Got there about 10 minutes after the sale started and managed to snag a handful of polos and shirts, several hoodies, a helmet, a SoFlo McCants jersey, a pair of SoFlo gloves and a pair of American flag gloves. I plan on framing the gloves with the McCants jersey and with the jersey received through renewing season tix. No need to buy new gear for quite some time unless I get fat and can't fit into it. Works out well given that I'm not a fan of the Adidas gear anyway.
  13. Hate to jump back on topic... but has anyone that renewed online received an email advising they are one of the top 300 accounts? I renewed at 10:04 and haven't heard anything, while a buddy renewed at around 10:40 and received the aforementioned email. P.S.: I know this is moot considering they sent an email saying they were able to get 200 extra jerseys, but just wondering.
  14. Exactly! And I believe they also threatened to sue the Big12 this past summer if they expanded and took 2-4 schools.
  15. I'll be at a wedding for 2 fellow USF alums. This will be the first USF vs. UCF game I've missed in person. I am not happy, especially considering this is the year the game has exploded into all that everyone wanted/thought it could be. With that said, I'll be streaming this one on the phone during the entire wedding. Go Bulls!
