  • TBP Ticker

Hi Guest,

In our efforts to raise funds for USF Football, the site is giving away a football season full of ad-free surfing at The Bulls Pen.

Would you consider buying a ticket or two to the raffle that will award this to you or a fellow member of the board?

Each ticket purchase goes directly to our effort to raise $10K in "fan money" for the program.  Below is the link:

The Bulls Pen Ad-free Raffle in support of USF Football

Thank you,

Brad Brad

I agree... I just want a  new OC... I think that would be a big step in the right direction. 

This, I dont know who but we need an OC upgrade big time on this team.

I 100% agree with that. If we called the plays we ran against GTECH short and medium passing routes to comeback consistently we would have a chance. The backups were even hitting those routes. BB is saying to himself, do you miss me yet? I noticed his arm wasn't as good the last few games and this explains a lot.

Maybe it's time for Gilbert to actually make/use a play book... he doesn't use one right?  I just think he has no imagination and is too stubborn to listen to his players.  He strikes me as a 'know it all'... this coming from me... and 'know it all' (though unlike Gilbert I welcome criticism and advice when it means I'll perform better)

And another DC as well. Both are trash. The special teams had gotten better than last year so keep them. But add a better kicker.

It took Willie Taggart till the 5th game of his 3rd season to figure out his "system" wasn't working and he was about to get himself fired. 

So essentially, he put his pride and his fancy playbook aside and let his kids play "Florida Sand Lot" football or the "Gulf Coast" Offense. 

This past off-season, Taggart called it "Lethal Simplicity" and that is because that is what it is. It probably won't work long term at FSU.

However, it may be your best bang for your buck with the level of Athlete you are going to get at USF. Put an athlete back there that can sort of pass the ball and throw or run the ball to wherever the defense isn't. 

IMO, USF is never going to be able to recruit an OL that will be able to effectively run Gilbert's offense.

But, just wait til next year...again.

Probably an over simplification to say the Gulf Coast Offense was implemented  in the 5th game of year 3 under CWT. 

Seems like he realized it after 2 seasons and tried to install it in the off-season and it wasn't until game 5 that it "clicked". 

This article goes in depth into the evolution of it. https://247sports.com/college/florida-state/Article/FSU-football-Gulf-Coast-Offense-Willie-Taggart--121257906/

Just so long as we don't give him a 2-year extension for making it to a bowl game. 🙄

CCS lost me last year, and I hate this brand of football and everything about watching this team, but I also agree that he will be with us for 1-2 more years until his system collapses on its own with his players... or he succeeds and eventually goes elsewhere

Either way, I'm not exactly thrilled with what I'm watching

Meanwhile, In Orlando, they are discussing the hundreds of variations on which College Game Day signs to have printed and how to best display them on national TV.  

That may take a while with the spelling issues central community college has...😂

I'll wait on a DC... I don't know how good the defense can be when they aren't on the field for 90 plays a game.
