  1. Welcome! Hope we can have some wonderful sports talk this summer.
  2. Welcome! What can we know about Gabriella's world?
  3. Am I the only one who recognized it was satire from the start? Come on people, you might not like them but are we seriously going to argue over a blog that is essentially a volunteer effort to cover USF athletics? At least they're doing it. If you don't like it everyone here is more than welcome to start their own blog.
  4. this could actually be a prime borrowing time. Interest rates are low, lack of construction demand will make building cheaper.
  5. They have to make that push first. Team is getting hot at the right time, with that important win over Temple last weekend. I still malign the fool refs for that terrible call in Orlando, we could easly be within 1 game of .500 tonight if not for that.
  6. Was he ever actually convicted? Or was it a case of overcommitment?
  7. Where are you in Pasco County? I was running a CPA firm in Zephyrhills for a couple of years before I decided to make a change.
  8. It's kind of insane that UCF has been able to catch up so quickly in WBB. That makes zero sense. CJF is a quality coach, but he's been hampered by having to play UConn every year. I feel fairly confident he would have won at least a few conference titles by now otherwise, and that would have accelerated his recruiting. That said, he needs to go back to recruiting the Southeast. I don't have a problem with the European players, but they just don't have the physicality and toughness of players like Grace and Williams. He's overcommited to Europe.
  9. GT and Cincy were both games we were in a position to win at the end. Win those and we go bowling. That said I don't think Strong would have kept his job regardless. He was Tony Levine'g the team.
  10. The CBI is supposed to be a launching board tournament. I don't think we would go again. It made perfect sense, and had Yetna been uninjured we likely would have made the leap to the NCAA as so many close losses would have been wins.
  11. I suspect he's been coaching quite hard lately. This is a darn good win. The way the team is playing gives me a lot of hope. Losing Yetna sucks a ton, but I wouldn't count this team out of the post season yet-particularly if they make a run in the conference tournament.
  12. Is this like an alternate version of a "last one wins" thread? Or better yet, a conference realignment thread?
  13. And he wants to hire USF graduates. Can anyone make a recommendation to his twitter post here? Liking him more by the day...https://twitter.com/coach_jeffscott/status/1223271793248608257?s=20
  14. Success is always precipitated by a culture shift. Taggart put a culture of winning in the locker room and being active in the local community, and Strong took the winning culture away. As long as CJS brings that back, we will win lots and lots of games.
  15. It would certainly kill the MWC. But I actually don't like the idea of dropping Tulane. Tulane is the geographical axis that makes the AAC turn, and if we ever decide to have a neutral-site conference championship, you can do a lot worse than NOLA. I don't think it would happen for a while, the model of giving the top ranked AAC team an extra home game has provided excellent optics and incentives to the American, but having Tulane in the American is a good thing. Tulsa is the one that doesn't make sense. If the American is going to expand, and Boise is okay with an equal revenue share, then I would add them along with the Air Force Academy and Colorado State. That gets you to 14. The only other schools I think would fit from an AAC perspective are UNLV (which is a big city school and could serve as a western version of Tulane), and BYU (which isn't coming because they will never agree to be second-string to Utah).
  16. Need to close this game out. Not surprised that Memphis made a run, Rideau will need to facilitate more as it's obvious they've got him dead to rights. Dawson and Collins will be the ones who can win this.
  17. I heard once apparently some USF fans went and flyered for USF on the UF campus.
  18. The team probably wins some of these close games with Yetna, but to be honest last season was indicative of CBG's overall career-first year rebuild, much better than expected year 2, then middling performance for 2-3 years. If we get to .500 this year it will be good. I'm just feeling the loss of Yetna may be too much to overcome.
  19. I think all of us are weary enough to know that everyone wins the press conference. Well, CCS didn't win the press conference with his "slow down the offense" comment, but most gave him a mulligan. Today CJS goes to work keeping the recruiting class together, getting his staff in place, and putting the ingredients together to get USF winning again, starting from the early signing day all the way through kick-off in Austin next year. Based on his two day record, I think we all believe CJS will get it done. He's coached very succesful players at Clemson, he did a good job turning them into one of the country's elite offenses with great players like DeShaun Watson and Sammy Watkins, but it is still a very long way to go. If CJS gets us to 6-6 in his first year (and there is no guarantee of this), that's a sign of a really good coach. We were close sometimes under CCS (the games vs. GT and UC this year come to mind), but not often enough. This is where we have to trust the process and understand that this will take time. Strong really screwed us up right when we were back on the cusp of rebuilding our reputation in Tampa. He could coach here five years and not seen 40k green and gold shifts in the stands, because people's trust in USF football has been broken a second time.
  20. Thanks! Please buy tickets and donate! I suspect there will be some building required, but enjoy the ride with us!
