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. The Tampa Bay community suck as a whole. I would like to apologize to flsportfan83 for raging on the Miami sport community. We have the worst sports fans in the world. If you don't like it, then get the **** out. I for one am getting the **** out. I transferred to USF this past summer and I was extremely enthusiastic about USF and their athletics, despite no on-campus stadium. I will be transferring to the University of South Carolina for the spring semester. There are obviously other reasons for my transfer to USC such as being closer to home, the quality of education, the quantity of classes offered, among others, however the athletics at USF did factor into my decision. My excitement for USF athletics quickly died after my first home game experience. It was a good atmosphere, but I couldn't get past driving so far from campus, the sea of red, or pirate ship. I understand overcoming the FSU and UF fan bases is difficult, but the administration doesn't seem to be concerned with doing what is necessary. Since I've been here, I've seen 1 USF advertisement in Tampa and it was a ridiculous fight song billboard. On top of everything else, the Big East has clearly lost all respectability and the distinction between UCF and USF is shrinking with them soon to be playing in the same conference. I wish nothing but the best for USF, but there is a long road ahead. Go Gamecocks! Unless you are a student-athelete you should not be picking your school based on its athletic program. With that kind of thinking, your departure should provide a slight bump in our academic standing. Being fustrated is fine, but don't make life decisions on whether or not you think your university in committed to winning. if you'll go back and read my post you'll see that it INFLUENCED my transfer and by no means is why i'm leaving. i'm not sure what some of you don't understand about that. secondly, my point is not for me to be the center of attention. my point is to shed light that it probably INFLUENCES others student sports fanatics in a similar manner. with that said, i am a serious sports fan and want a school who is as passionate about athletics as me. i came here because i wanted usf to be that school and it's just not. i will always pull for usf, just not against usc.
  2. actually, if you go look at the u.s. news rankings, usc beats usf in every category. oh and don't even get me started on the athletics. my point was, not that anyone gives a **** about me moving on to greener pastures, but i'm sure i'm not the only person athletics has influenced to leave.

  4. "It's highly likely that we'll be one of the only college venues in the country that has corner display boards, as well as ribbon boards, as well as a center home scoreboard, as well as about 100 different distributed TV monitors around the building, too," Lafferty said. http://www.usforacle.com/sun-dome-renovations-taking-shape-1.2663105#.TrorIFZSlJM
  5. I was extremely upset after our last 3 losses and said some things about the team that weren't so kind, but the Bulls played extremely hard tonight. The outcome is frustrating, and BJ's passing was as well, but I watched a game where our guys gave everything they had. It came down to a missed field goal, from a normally reliable kicker. As fans, we have every right to be upset, but I can't be mad at college kids for a loss that came after they gave everything they had on the field. It is unimaginable that we have now dropped 4 straight games after beginning our season with 4 wins, but at least they haven't rolled over. I believe this season is the result of poor coaching, but I am not willing to support firing a coach after less than 2 seasons. I'm holding out hope for a decent mens basketball season.
  6. You cannot be series... 100% serious. They want to be just like us.
  7. We hate UCF, but I don't get the feeling that UCF hates us. Especially after reading articles written by Mike Bicocky over the past week. I would smile if UCF burned to the ground, but hate is such a strong word. We need to be as far away as possible from UCF, because if not I'm not sure the country will be able to distinguish between the 2 schools.
  8. Sorry, they will never be the lesser evil. Why play them any sooner than we have to ... besides, I thought they didn't do payday games anymore? To answer your question, I'd rather have anybody over them until we have to ... I'd rather watch USF play Al Queda. If they're not available, Plant City would be a better option. Unfortunately, I feel like we are now forever linked with UCF. Two directional schools for people around the country to mix up when not discussing the big 3.
  9. Stalking is a term commonly used to refer to unwanted and obsessive attention by an individual or group to another person. Stalking behaviors are related to harassment andintimidation and may include following the victim in person and/or monitoring them via the internet. The word stalking is used, with some differing meanings, in psychology andpsychiatry and also in some legal jurisdictions as a term for a criminal offense.
  10. How do you know he's not? from deadspin who has a copy of the lawsuit on their site. "In the way of news, the suit confirms that UConn, Louisville, Rutgers and Cincinnati have held discussions with other conferences about jumping ship." Doesn't mention USF. http://deadspin.com/5854992/ Let's clear this up. The lawsuit does not say those schools had conversations with other conferences. The lawsuit cites public comments made by employees of the school or by politicians in the states those schools reside. For example, someone at UConn stated they were looking at the landscape or something and a politician followed up by saying publicly that UConn was talking to the ACC. There is no proof in the lawsuit that UConn was talking to anyone. Conversely, USF is not in there because no one at USF made public comments. That doesn't mean USF wasn't talking to anyone. I wish reporters were more accurate when they report. That used to be something reporters took pride in. Not anymore, apparently. of course databull, you're always right. you're so dreamy and smart.
  11. And que a comment from a mod about you not knowing what Judge Judy and Capt'n Wollard are doing +1 , thats all i will say, if i don't include a source my post may be edited or deleted.
  12. How do you know he's not? from deadspin who has a copy of the lawsuit on their site. "In the way of news, the suit confirms that UConn, Louisville, Rutgers and Cincinnati have held discussions with other conferences about jumping ship." Doesn't mention USF. http://deadspin.com/5854992/ Page 6, Paragraph 27 is where this confirmation took place. Pretty vague about all but UConn and doesn't say a thing about USF NOT having discussions, which I would hope WVU wouldn't be privy to to begin with ... if they don't have any real info on the discussions, why not include us with everyone else?

  14. stillwater is actually 22 miles closer than syracuse.
  15. The new site looks great, but why is FIU advertising season tickets on here? Is our basketball team that bad?
  16. We have success passing the ball, but we prefer to get stuffed running up the middle. Also, our team does not like bad weather, low humidity, or officiating.
  17. I respect the letter, but I believe a petition would be a more effective first step. This website seems like a great place to begin gathering signatures.
  18. I don't understand how living in Richmond from 05-10, I have watched VCU basketball in the CAA put out quality basketball year after year who does well in league play, CAA tournament and NCAA tournament, in addition to producing NBA talent. Some of you may laugh it off, but the CAA actually has quality teams such as Old Dominion and George Mason to name a few. Why does USF have such an inability to put out quality basketball? Save that thought for a month or so .... You'll get more response then. Most people only have two wrists to **** and those are being occupied by recent play of the football team and realignment shenanigans. ok, i def. will hold that thought. i have this illusion in my head that it's not as bad as everyone says, but fear i'm in for a rude awakening. now i can go back to reading how our coaching meltdown this weekend was due to humidity, officiating and dry hands.

  20. Seriously. Nothing upsets me more than when our fanbase really throws beer into the conversation on anything. I love beer. I don't need beer or any alcohol to enjoy USF football. I drink before games, not during. Besides, most conferences don't allow it. *standing ovation* I agree it's a bit embarrassing, not just the fact that they wouldn't be able to enjoy the game without drinking in the stadium but also because they admit to drinking that overpriced swill they sell in the stadium. You guys sound like the "Grumpy Old Men". Yes, it's stupid our fans would rather stay at Ray Jay because they can drink beer during the game, especially because this is college football and typically you can't drink in the stadium and in my opinion it adds to the appeal of tailgating. But, embarrassing? Come on guys this is football. You're supposed to be drunk, loud, and standing. If not, you might as well just watch the game at home in your tomb. Yes it's embarrassing for people to use beer as a reason as to why they don't want an OCS. To me it shows that they are there more for the party than the football and supporting the team. Also being dependent on alcohol for your enjoyment of a situation is when you start treading into alcoholic territory. Who said anything about being loud and standing? I get loud with the best of them and stand when appropriate (even though I would like to stand more) and have at every bulls game I've attended since moving out of the student section a few years ago. Also if anything the the not caring about beer in the stadium one way or another actually supports your argument for an OCS so I don't know what your on about. No argument just giving you guys a hard time. It doesn't bother me that alcohol probably wouldn't be served at the stadium. If alcohol is not served it would encourage tailgating and most people I have ever gone to college games with (young or older) normally take airplane liquor bottles in the stadium anyway. Exactly, I could careless if beer is allowed or not because I'm going to have my share of good beer while tailgating anyways. Even with beer available in the stadium now I don't buy it because it's crap beer. If we got on board with say Cigar City (It's available at the Trop) and/or Dunedin Brewery and had their beer in the stadium that would be a different story.... But the main reason why we shouldn't have an OCS right now is the most important, lack of proper funding. We should not cut the program and fans shot by rushing into a piece of crap stadium just to be able to say we have one on campus. We will never have a Rayjay on campus and hopefully never have a wobbling erector set full of chain-link fence either. It's easy for us to sit here and make assumptions that USF doesn't have the funding or options to get a quality OCS built, but has there ever been a feasibility study conducted? With planning, impact studies, funding, permitting, construction and inspections, this process will take years. While I appreciate having a quality stadium like Ray Jay to host our games, we need a home. Until we get an OCS, we will always be considered a "commuter school" by others. Also, I am sure USF is aware of UCF's failure of a stadium and I am confident that when it happens, it will be quality. Can someone please inform me who financed UCF's stadium? The stadium issue has absolutely NOTHING to do being a commuter school. The designation is determined by the number of dorm rooms on campus compared to the number of students. FSU and UCF are BOTH considered "commuter schools" I disagree with you, but this isn't the first time. I think most of your opinions are outdated. and probably won't be the last. I'm simply stating facts and don't really care about your opinion one way or the other. i guess i should've said "perception of being a commuter school". weren't you the guy that was saying you liked ray jay because it has nice comfy seats?
  21. Sauce? Its true. Look it up. Yeah, somehwhere in these billions and billions of pages on re-alignment there was a source linked ... I think it was based on housing actually on campus. ok, i guess i should have said "perception of being a commuter school". fsu may technically be a commuter school, but it is not perceived as one.

  23. Maybe USF won't win until someone from Jupiter comes to USF and changes the fortune. In most Romance languages, the day is named after the Roman god, Jupiter who was the god of sky and thunder. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thursday You may be onto something here........Tyler Cameron will be here next year and he is from Jupiter............, Florida.......No, Not the same place...it will have to do. Wasn't Tyler cameron visiting Purdue this past weekend?
  24. FSU has an erector set stadium? I've never been, but always thought it looked so nice on TV. They have a brick facade that puts lipstick on it .... You walk in underneath the stands and it's nothing but a HS stadium on roids ... or a HS stadium in texas. So basically it is UCF's stadium with fancy clothes? I've seen UCF's stadium in person and I honestly thought it was their practice field until I was informed otherwise.
