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. I'm not saying I'd prefer 1-3 OOC, but if we went 1-3 OOC and won the conference (which unless bizarro strikes, we'd have to go 7-1 or 8-0 most likely), and then win the champ game. We'd get the division and conference wins, get that conference trophy, and if we're jumped by a MWC team and don't get a flashy bowl, oh well. In the end, no one is going to remember our conference being "down", they will see USF won the AAC. I still think if we go 7-1 and win the division and conference, we can easily go 2-2 OOC and adding the championship game, puts us at 10-3 overall before bowls. I'd be fine with that. At this point, I don't care if we somehow manage 9-4, let's win this conference and shut up some of the naysayers. at least START there. The OOC wins are great, but look where it's gotten us.
  2. Looking at some of the other teams in the past that have won the conference, the UConns, Cincy's, UCFs of the past, stumbles against OOC while at least being competitive would be fine with me if that meant we win the conference at 7-1 or 8-0 (and win the champ game). Worst we could do is 1-3 OOC (we'll beat SC State), and a conference trophy and any additional OOC wins is icing.
  3. WVU dude is self proclaimed and happened to be semi-correct about some of the alignment in the late 00's, i still don't get why people listen to him. he threw 50 lbs of poo at the wall and some stuck and he thinks he's mr alignment news. now he sits there and speculates captain obvious talking points like he's breaking some sort of top secret news.
  4. We better hope we don't get a really bad rain out vs BYU because we'll have to wait until Monday to make it up
  5. looks like we get a 2 for 1 with Miami instead, 2027 in tampa, 2025 and 2028 in miami i think. https://twitter.com/flasportsbuzz/status/1128299168567525376
  6. Pretty version with helmets https://fbschedules.com/usf-football-schedule/
  7. Got some new alumni license plates for the mrs and I. Snazzy
  8. I'd say in recent memory, UConn comes to mind. They did make it to a Fiesta Bowl, and from there went downhill in football and have yet to recover. Their men's hoops managed to string together a remarkable run in 2014 to win it all and then has mired being so-so for a few years and doesn't seem to carry the clout that being in the Big East used to. Their women's hoops lives in a void (and helps that there's basically like 20-25 schools that are any good and the rest are garbage). There are fans there that actually want to step back from the American to trade places with someone in the C-USA or MAC or some crazy FCS/Patriot leagues in order to get hoops back into the Big East. So if you think USF fans have given up, could always be worse.
  9. I'll take a HB dive If the RB goes 75 yards for a score.
  10. I'd be cool giving King the OC job and let him prove himself on that next level. The negative nancy in me is anxious for the announcement in the next few weeks that he's accepted an OC job somewhere else for more money.
  11. The loud crazy chick in 126? She was meh for sure and sure had an attitude. The guy w her was super sloppy too and was ranting later on about the team then he went downhill and was in the latter stages of drunkenness
  12. Strong will get mentioned for UL ad nauseum, but won't get rehired there. Gossip incoming: UL twitter says UL won't hire Strong whom supposedly had an affair with a booster's wife (insert bad taste in the mouth pun here). Apparently, Petrino didn't sit well in WKU either so don't expect him to go back. This whole "coaches going back to old jobs" thing is tired. Other than Bill Snyder, it doesn't seem to work for others (Edsall, Petrino). My take: Strong will get looks, and he'll stick to the UL rumors because the media just assumes he "did well there" and "UL > USF (it is)". He'll come up for Maryland and possibly Purdue, if Brohm heads to UL. I don't see any SEC jobs opening up this year yet, and I don't think Strong gets strong looks (no pun intended that time) out west or in the Big Ten other than PU. Don't see many jobs in the Big 12 opening up yet either. I think if Strong leaves, it will be due to the domino effect and a bigger school throws a bag of money at him, my darkhorse would be UNC.
  13. As someone who went almost exclusively to USF Lakeland back in the day, it is par for the course for Polk County, basically being a Gainesville State booster county. The good ole boy system is alive and well, and this was just one of many reasons I got finished with USF-Lakeland and not only moved to Hillsborough at the time, but also got the f out of my job in Bartow. The way Gator boosters talk about USF back then (and probably still do now) was appalling, and they went on surface level, not knowing the great things USF was doing or how many strides they were making academically. They certainly rode on JDA's jock and wanted nothing to do with reasoning about why USF-Lkld was fine as is. I never had a problem in any classes (almost the entire IT Dept was based out of there at the time), and Polk CC/State had a good partnership and the campus was nice - obviously just a typical basic satellite campus. Lot of people in Polk are blindly UF because UF has its Agriculture all up in there as well as ties with the phosphate industry.
