    New AD Search

    This AD search is just like a football or men's bball coaching search! Newbie to the AD job. Right now, we don't need that, like football didn't need an unproven assistant taking over. Another AD from a major program. Utah took what's his name from us... A retread hire --Hey, Texas, thanks, again! Retreads always come with baggage. But they are cheaper! They need to be cheaper or sponsored.

    New AD Search

    My only concern with Jurich is his name and current reputation with college football's big wheels. Where does he stand now? Do most coaches, ADs and presidents believe he ran a shady operation at Louisville? It's all about who you know (that has money and power) in NCAA football. If there's a dark cloud over him, we don't need that. I have no idea; I didn't follow things that closely with how it all played out at Louisville. Let's say a P5 slot opens up in the future and Jurich is the AD. And one of the presidents says, "I'm not voting for South Florida because of you know who." Again, I'm speculating! I have no idea.
  3. The arrow points to LSU first! "USF's stand is we accepted him based on his LSU transcript. He did need a lot of tutoring, though."
  4. ucf fans would sign up just to finally get their hands on Matt! 😀

    We basically need to hire somebody the USF Athletics budget can't afford. The person would then bring in more money than the department pays him/her -by many folds. If we go cheap, it's going to be a yawn-hire. 😴
  6. O.K. If you are USF sports diehard, you have a personal list of all-time favorite players in your head. List as many as you want -in order. Top 5? Top 10?

    New AD Search

    All I can say is I'm glad that we aren't in search of a football coach or a men's bball coach this time of the year. Amen. If you told me after what's his name took the extension that we'd be searching for a new AD, I'd say, "very unlikely." But here we are. Football and Basketball commits back out; players transfer; coaches take other jobs; and AD's go for bigger money. Maybe the only true, 100% Bull at USF Athletics is Rocky!
  8. I don't want to be negative. But the only thing I know for sure about the upcoming season is our signature play: HB dive.

    Please check to see if the person has his/her degree in hand before making the offer.

    Classic Football Game Videos

    I want to see it again. But I haven't found enough strength to do it. Losing --especially to them-- makes it really tough to bear, again. I might go years before watching that game again, and I know it was a great game.

    Classic Football Game Videos

    Curious, do you Bulls re-watch games when USF lost? I can't do it. The pain is too much. For example, I want to see the USF - Buttgers game where we got it stolen from us, but I can't do. And I didn't even watch the game when it was live; I listened on the radio while driving at the time.

    Madut Akec - new signee for USF Basketball

    I "made" the shirt because it seems like I'm always hoping the bball would turn the corner at some point -maybe "next season"? I've been feeling this way since the Dobras and Co. days. I've only been rewarded once since. And then USF went and fired the coach. To do what? Hire a guy with no degree and then hire another guy who made the program even worse than our average bad years. At the lowest point we had how many players on the roster and no prospects for incoming talent? I don't even know if we are even at the place where Stan left the program when he was fired. Tell me the dark empress runs a good show... Right!

    USF realignment "Rumors" "tweets" "etc"

    Curious, the scrub schools from the P5 conferences (respective to the either or both of the 2 sports they stink at), are they paying football and men's bball coaches the same as the other P5 teams that win consistently? Those schools are getting a lot of cash. I'm wondering if they are spending it on sports or just hoarding it up for other purposes.
  15. I was just thinking that Alabama fans only want one thing, winning the National Championship (not the one that ucf won). Everything else is almost meaningless for their fans. What about the Bulls' Nation? What are your top 5 dreams/wishes right now for USF Athletics?

    Mark Harlan to Utah

    This is a tough time of the year with no football.

    Mark Harlan to Utah

    My problem with ADs taking other AD jobs is that --the person is supposed to represent the entire athletics department. They do the hiring and all of that. When the big cheese signs an extension and then takes another gig, that just says to me there's no trust whatsoever: dollars, baby! Mark Harlan is dead to me.

    Mark Harlan to Utah

    We all thought he was the worst --actually, he was light years ahead of what's his name that was just fired! New lows... Yay!

    Mark Harlan to Utah

    We need an AD who's not one that left another AD-related job elsewhere. USF was built from people who love the university. Joe or Mary from an AD-related job from another university just doesn't seem like the right timing for this hire. We need funding and leadership that bring USF and Tampa together.

    Mark Harlan to Utah

    USF never fails --the drama continues! I was thinking that it had been fairly peaceful and quiet since USF hired Strong. Buckle up! --Let's see how this turns out. We need somebody with Florida, Tampa and P5 connections -who can do a great job.
  21. As the self-appointed President of the Dobras Fan Club, I'm disappointed. I'm sending people over to steal your lawn gnome .

    USF realignment "Rumors" "tweets" "etc"

    We usually focus on the TV networks and game access platforms for conference expansion, as the source of expansion money. But the truth is that the teams and the powers in the NCAA decided to keep more money for the top programs (for themselves). Until they change their minds, sadly, teams like USF and UConn will be looking for a free lunch. When they took away the BCS, they removed chairs and USF got left out when the music stopped. Former Big East teams like Louisville and WVU found chairs...

    Deadrin Senat sighting.....

    Say, is there that silly rule in the NFL that took Senat out of a few games for hitting the QB? --I mean are they that touchy in the NFL? (I don't keep up with the NFL that closely.)
  24. I have fond memories of Reggie, great player for us. I still remember listening on the Net during one game (no TV coverage or USF access) and listening to the other team's coverage -who kept calling him, "Corn."
