  1. Not even knowing what the Mad Cow Lounge was I requested a sign in password. Thanks Brad for the quick response. After my first visit, although extremely brief, I won't be going back. I joined because I thought it was going to be a place to get away from all the angst, hate and divisiveness we have in our lives today. The whole first page of threads was political blathering nonsense created by someone named Smazza. It was unreadable. Wasn't aware of The Trough either. I'll give that a visit.
  2. Went to Curtis Hixon more times than I can remember. Up in the mountains where we live now we have an old, dated music hall with wooden church pew type seats. Not much to look at and maybe holds a few thousand tops. But they really do bring some good shows here. Three Dog Night came last year. We bought tickets and saw Blood, Sweat & Tears last fall. Not one original band member was in the group, but they had such great musicians they could certainly fool you with their sound. Funny thing was at 65 years old I felt like I was one of the youngest in the whole crowd that night.
  3. Not trying to minimize the threat something like this could pose but, according to the CDC during last years 2018 through 2019 flu season, on average 89 people a day died from the flu virus. I just don't understand all the hysteria at this point.
  4. Sadly that will leave me with no way to watch them. I haven't had ESPN, or any sports packages, in six years. That won't change going forward. At least I can get the scoop on here.
  5. Can you please help an old guy out here? How do you watch a game on Youtube. That's probably the only way I'll get to watch Bull's baseball. Would really appreciate the help.
  6. Well if home games for members is a criteria I want in too. I want us to add Western Carolina to our conference. They actually kicked a field goal against Alabama and held them to 66 points. I'd argue that's as good, if not better than we did against Wisconsin.
  7. I remember that trailer well. I would see it every time I would go to a baseball game at the old ball field. We've definitely come a long way since. Speaking of baseball, I really miss attending games in person. I've only been to one since moving away in 2007.
  8. I remember watching "Andy Griffith" on our only TV in the house, an ugly old square metal B&W TV with four metal, tube-like legs on roller wheels.
  9. My oldest son actually played for Roland Acosta back in the nineties.
  10. It's not just Plant HS. I'd wager that schools like Armwood do the same thing. It's just not feasible for the same schools, year after year, to go undefeated and vie for state championships the way these guys have done. It wouldn't seem out of place for a school to have great success like that for a few years in a row while a core group of good players in the same class played their way through their senior year together. But to do what Plant (I was surprised they had it rough this past season and your guess is as good as mine as to why) and Armwood and many other top high school football programs do repeatedly is just not believable without some questionable moves. Just my opinion.
  11. I keep reading Shaun King is/was a great recruiter. Not arguing that point either way because I don't know. I would be curious to know the names of the players he's been credited with recruiting to the Bulls.
  12. I have absolutely nothing against Shaun King. Other than watching him QB the Bucs for a short while, I actually know very little about him. What I want to know is why so many think he needs to stick around with a new staff. Again, it makes no difference to me one way or the other. Is it strictly for his perceived recruiting skills? Is it because he is a phenomenal position coach, and if so, why is he still just a position coach? Just trying to ask for help understanding this sentiment. Thanks.
  13. Never really followed SC football so I have no idea why. And totally agree with you that it's hard to compete in the top heavy SEC.
  14. Thanks for the reply. I wasn't aware of any of that. Certainly can't see how that would any kind of negative.
  15. Keep reading in a lot of different threads about his father coming with him. Anybody got any information about his father and his career, or his achievements?
  16. Bull, I really admire your passion but are the general contractor for the hoped for IPF?
  17. Respectfully, lightening didn't stop Taggart's team from going 11-2 in 2016. It didn't even stop Chuckle's team from going 10-2 in 2017. Neither had an IPF at the time. Not saying an IPF won't be a nice thing to have, and I'm not discounting the danger lightening can pose, but I just can't wrap my head around an IPF being the only way we're going to come our of this mess. I'm not an impatient person and I have been a fan since the first game against Kentucky Wesleyan but if they don't get this mess sorted out soon, I can see myself finding other ways to spend what little time I have left on this earth.
  18. I thoroughly enjoyed watching Sam Barrington play. But listening to him on the radio, which is how I have to get the Bull's games, is just painful.
  19. When I made the post I did earlier, I wasn't even thinking about using any IPF funds to buy out CCS. I don't know if that's even possible. I was just intrigued that so many felt the IPF was the ticket to getting better and was trying to figure out why they would feel this way. Would I like the kids to have an IPF? Sure I would. Personally I'm just not convinced that the lack of an IPF is our biggest hurdle right now. Does any one know just how much practice time is lost in a season due to lightning? If it's significant, I could certainly understand getting it done as soon as possible might help. I'm not as plugged into USF athletics like a lot of you but I'm still a fan and want the best for our athletes.
  20. Ok. Going to admit up front that I'm an old geezer and I don't post a lot but I read TBP everyday. I read a lot on here claiming that an IPF is going to be the ticket to success moving forward and it is the top priority. I'm asking this as sincerely as I can, why do many on here feel that way? Is it because everyone else has one (whether they do or not I really don't know) and we want one too? Is an IPF going to improve the coaching that we've seen these past few years. Is it going to instantly make the the boneheaded moves some players make throughout the year disappear? If there was an IPF already in place, would that have made CCS a better coach and a season like this would never have happened. Admittedly I'm probably missing the big picture. Please help me understand what I'm missing. I only ask in this thread because I've seen it mentioned in multiple threads as I've perused the forum this morning.
