This last week has felt like a long, drawn out 4th and 28 ......

"A week after the Bulls beat West Virginia, Rutgers running back Ray Rice (27) stiffed-arms USF defensive end George Selvie and the team's hopes of contending for a national title. (Times, 2007)"

 

Uhh...Joey might want to start double-checking his facts. We played and beat FAU and UCF after defeating West Virginia.

Amazing how many people really don't know the history of this very young program.

I actually thought that stiff arm was a different year entirely.

If we're going to nitpick trivial JK stuff (those 2 in state games actually caused us to drop in the polls if I recall correctly), didn't catch this one:

Gilbert did leave to take the head coaching job with McNeese State, but not before playing a part in the team going from 7-0 to 7-7.

That game was no biggie for the players at that point and they were playing loose. That erroneous call resulted in the game remaining at 17-10 rather than USF going up 24-10, talk about a major shift in the game. Instead, we miss a FG, they make a FG before halftime, and the game goes to the half 17-13. 

The cynic in me believes that the fix was in and the powers that be were deathly afraid that USF was going to crash the BCS party. They knew enough about the computer rankings to extrapolate what would have happened if USF won out at that point and it wouldn't have been good for their agenda, especially considering ESPN's plans to crush the Big East and leave USF and others out in the cold. 

So the officials hired by the Big East were trying to keep the only shot the Big East had at getting into the Championship game. C'mon man. That was an awful call, but there was no conspiracy. USF should have won that game with ease, they were unprepared which was common with USF teams back then and even now when conference play started. That team still had tons to play for after the Rutgers lost and completely **** the bed. That season is such a disappointment.

You mean just like Pitt would never conspire with ESPN to undermine the conference and then bolt to the ACC? You think Big East officials are loyal to the Big East only? You don't think ESPN couldn't have clandestinely paid off the lead official in that game? I'm not saying that it definitely happened, but it isn't impossible.

Any idea whose fault it was that we were unprepared? Could it be the coach? No, of course not...Gods don’t make those kind of mistakes...
