Triple B

USF football and the undefeated degree of difficulty

Recommended Posts

TAMPA — In the wake of the latest solar eclipse, USF fans eagerly await the next astronomical phenomenon.

Already, they can see the planets aligning gloriously for their 2017 team. Prolific quarterback, proven coach, comfy schedule — it's all taking shape.

Or it all could be an illusion. This type of cosmic convergence — an undefeated season — happens so rarely.

Try convincing veteran Plant High coach Robert Weiner there was no external force at work in 2006, when the Panthers finished 15-0 and won the Class 4A state crown. They even entitled their scrapbook of that surreal autumn, "Season in Sync."

"And that's because it seemed like not only was it just magical that we had kids with ability and we made a lot of plays and stuff like that, it seemed like every bounce went our way and we won every crucial moment," Weiner said. "Some of it was like, 'Wow.'"

Rest of article ..... which includes my most favorite CCS piece of advice up to this point:

"The players hear it, and you know how it is with anyone, they want to read about themselves," coach Charlie Strong said.

"And I tell 'em all the time, it's why you've got to get off social media, because that's the driving force behind it."

 

Also includes a quote from one of the greatest sports movies of all time:

"I'm sure going to the state finals is beyond your wildest dreams, so let's just keep it right there."
