I cant remember a time


Recommended Posts

In my life as a Bulls fb fan( since the beginning) when a season has set up as nicely as this one for us to finally win a conference championship.....no excuses, anything less is unacceptable...can anyone remember another year where we couldve, shouldve closed the deal....had the best  overall talent compared to the rest of the league, had a favorable home conference schedule, had the dynamic playmakers...this is our year!!!

2007

But, were we expected to win the conference going into that season? I don't think we were the favorites. I remember West Virginia, Louisville and maybe Rutgers/Ciincy ahead of us as favorites. We came out strong and surprised a lot of people. In comparison to what OP is saying, I don't think anyone would be too surprised if we make the championship game, but I'd be surprised if we beat Houston. They are going to be loaded.

This is what has me uneasy!! High expectations can be very stressful. Going to be very tough.

We were predicted as second. WVU first, we received one first place vote. What a disappointment the second half of the season that was. Still would love to see an atmosphere like that WVU game again before I die - I'm not even 30 yet but it's getting more and more doubtful. Regardless I'm ready for some football and want to see a conference championship trophy in the Lee Roy!

I guess it just depends where you look.

Oh ye of little faith. We're a young program with a growing fan base. If there's one thing that 2007 proved, Tampa is ready to hop on the bandwagon on a moment's notice. We need to keep garnering fervent season ticket holders that'll stick around when things get "Holtz-like," and then when things get hot again, we'll know that the bandwagon should be there to help fill Ray Jay (or an eventual OCS). I consider myself a realist, but even I'm fairly confident that we'll be able to have another "Hotdog Environment" like that WVU game.
