  1. Not sure you want to put a 5-9 165 pound 18 year old out there to return punts. He would be an open target any time he does not fair catch- potential to get erased or a fumble is way more than the benefit of taking one to the house. Tyre can make people miss, and more importantly he is going to secure the ball and can take a hit.
  2. @rodney_adams87: Getting my LeBRon James on @KingJames http://t.co/QGJCwCnS76 Taggart has these kids soft. We got players more excited to check Twitter after games than executing in them. Maybe Adams catches that long pass where he is wide open we have a different outcome.
  3. Cook beat us like we were out at a tally bar on a Saturday night!
  4. Aikens drops one, and you put him at the end of the wr rotation. QF missed at least a half dozen wide open receivers, doesn't even get the ball close. Where does that put him in the rotation? I thought that would leave you speechless. Lol I am on my phone. I edited the post. But you have to admit, that drop was horrendous. At WR at least we have options. Plays like that one were the norm last 3 years, gotta make an example of him.
  5. Aikens drops one, and you put him at the end of the wr rotation. QF missed at least a half dozen wide open receivers, doesn't even get the ball close. Where does that put him in the rotation? It's really pick your poison with out QB choices. Flowers is not accurate, but he was shifty, and got out of 4-5 sure sacks. Bench is accurate, but he is not as shifty and more prone to duck down and take a sack. All in all if be fine with either. Looking at our situation from a top level it is looking pretty great- should get 6+ wins this year including rivalry game with UCF, then we are set up for next year with Woulard at the helm. Team is young and looking dangerous. Only worry we have is when a p5 team poaches Allen at the end of the season.
  6. If aikens catches that ball in the 4th qtr on 3rd and 7 it's a totally different game. That drop was unacceptable. Hopefully that puts him at the end of the wr rotation. Other than that considering we were down 2-4 lb's it was a great game by usf! For once I can go about my Saturday without a disgusted feeling about my school!
  7. I know I'm a bit late, but I was at the game and re-watched it also. I know one thing for sure, outside of the first 10 minutes or so there was progress over the past 3-4 years. -Not a bunch of false start/ delay of game garbage. -the offense, while pretty vanilla looked competent, I did t see many dropped passes like years before. -I see a bunch of hungry players, excited on the sidelines. - after a big defensive play, I think it was one of hectors sacks, I saw Allen run over to taggart and give a flying chest bump. Good to see something like that, it's been lacking since JL has been gone. I can handle losses, as long as the team and coaches do not beat themselves. That's all I got, im going back to lurking in the shadows.
  8. I could be wrong, but I would think the TV deal is on hold at the moment pending whatever happens next in realignment. The BE is almost definitely going to lose at least 1 more team here pretty soon. no way there is a tv deal now there is no big east conference I understand that there is no deal now. But teams leavimg to go to the ACC are going into a deal that is valid until 2027. The fact that there is no BE contract could be a strength. The remaining ACC schools IF FSU, CU, VT, VA, and GT, are not football ppwerhouses... It would serve them well to explore the BE and negotiate a stronger deal - especially the basketball side, it would be the best in the nation hands down. Those ACC leftovers need most if not all of the remaing BE AND more to even look like an attractive conference. And again, they are stuck in a contract till 2027. Boise, UC, USF, UCF, UL, UH, SMU are all argueably as good as or better that the remaining ACC football teams. IF ESPN is in Swoffords ear telling him about potential teams to add, they realize that the ACC is just as close to irrelevance as the BE. I think its going to come down to a deathmatch between the two of them, and the lack of a deal is actually a strength for the BE.
  9. If the ACC may lose 4-6 teams, I would think the better option to the remaining ACC teams would be to beg the BE for admission. BE is getting a new tv deal and ACC is stuck with theirs till 2027. If the teams mentioned (NC, VA, VT, FSU, CU, and GT) GTFO, id say Duke, BC, UM, SU, Pitt, Wake, NC state < UL, UConn, USF, UC, Boise, UCF, and Houston. Along with the weaker BE teams they could probably get a nice TV deal and give the finger to ESPN.
  10. Lets give them a break, they are on a 3 win team getting crushed against a team they played close the year before. Seeing Holtz fumble and chuckle before halftime, I dont blame any of these players for giving up. Any other coach would be foaming at the mouth angry if their team wasted 27 seconds on the 4 yard line right before the half. Skip sets the example that the team follows. I imagine all the players feel trapped at this point. Holtz basically ruined Lindsay Lamars future by not giving him a real shot at rb until 4 games into his senior year. These kids are stuck with a classic coaches son leading their team, and are now a laughingstock. A player like Ryne Giddens dosent just turn bad overnight- he is a product of his environment.
  11. Is anyone else worried that what looks to be our offense for next year played tonight, they looked horrible. This preview was against one of the worst defenses in the country this year. Im thinking that we will be lucky to win 2 games next year. Other than complete incompetence managing a game, Skip has failed to get anything resembling a D1 QB in here. Price, Montgomery, and Davis could all be the next Jerry Rice and it wouldnt make a difference. That is probably the biggest reason to get rid of him.
  12. There is no excuse for this. I was all about giving CSH a chance but not getting rid of Cosh has led to this. This season is all on him. There is no reason to keep him, There is no way HS kids are watching and wanting to come to USF. At least we have a decent offense to watch- when the coaches decide to use Lamar, Price, Montgomery, and Daniels correctly.
  13. Off of the ledge. I have been a long time reader, and will admit i was/still am teetering on full on Defcon 5 fire skip mode. I found myself hoping this team loses to expedite the process of exterminating the coaching staff. After this game I am willing to give CSH a little breathing room under one condition- get rid of Cosh. I see the blame going around, and the fingers pointed at various people (Mainly Holtz, BJ Daniels, and the defense/Cosh). But take a step back and look at what we do have. There is a core of wide recievers who will be able to produce big plays, an awesome tight end (who looks like a 30 year old man out there), hopefully a new QB that looks the part of a winner (no height issues like BJD, Elite11 MVP, wants to be a pocket passer), and Aaron Lynch. Not too long ago USF won with a punishing D and questionable offense. Now we have the makings of a high powered offense if used like we saw in the 2nd half today, and a defense that with a coach that knows what he is doing SHOULD be top 50 in D1. I think we all need to hope for the best- that CSH fires Cosh and brings in a young version of Burnham. Consider the alternative for USF: 1. Fire Holtz 2. Lose Woulard and pick up another Eveld brother to lead us for the next 4 years. 3. Lose any hope of picking any type of talent LB or CB this year. 4. Rebuild for the next 3 years with some other person who USF will probably have to get on the cheap, since they spent $2.5MM to get rid of CSH. 5. Light up this site for the next 4 years about how we could have been great but Joel Miller ruined the dream. I may be too optimistic, but here is how I see the future potentially happening: 1. CSH gets rid of Cosh, buying him another year. 2. He brings in Woulard and has a 3.5 year QB solution, along with some speedy LB's and maybe a cover corner or two. 3. Floyd starts the year out and works with a WR corps of: Davis, Montgomery, Mitchell, Welch, and a one legged Griffin. Throw in a now budding star in Price at Te. All of them one year removed from this mess, ready to show they can carry a team. Floyd can pull a Gary Nova and not lose games for the first few weeks with those guys. 4. With a new D scheme not giving away 5-7 games in the last 3 minutes of each game, USF can win 8 games next year. After that the sky is the limit. In closing, I see the loss at Temple as rock bottom. USF played the #16 team in the country to a 2 point game, FSU was also closer than the score let on. IF (big if here) CSH acts on the incompetence of Cosh, we will look back at this year as our turning point. USF needed this. Every year we expect a 10 win season, and never understand that a matter of 15 minutes in a season can give a team 4 losses and send us into a message board rampage. I ready to watch the rest of this year with tempered expectations. If changes are made I will be all in again, USF deserves that. We are lucky to be where we are and I still have confidence that this administration will take us where we want to go. Disengage Soapbox.
