Hi Guest,

Just a note to point out our TBP-initiated drive to raise funds for the Bulls Football IPF - doing our share, and more.  Please consider donating at least $23 to the effort, and passing on to others as well.  You can read more about the project at the link above.

Let’s settle this on the field.  For the sake of all that is good, beat Central.

take back the trophy so they can shut their holes.

I'm all for beating those guys but it seems like too many fans see that as the Holy Grail. Yeah the I-4 trophy is nice but I can deal with taking an L to those guys IF we still win the division, play for AND win the conference Championship Game.

The I-4 trophy will go back and forth between the two schools but the conference championship trophy stays in the trophy case in Tampa.

Winning C-USA championships hardly qualifies you to be the voice of college football and worthy of criticizing other programs. My point is there has always been an arrogance - or perhaps compensation for some sort of inferiority complex - there and it’s not warranted just because of the past two years. As high as their “up” seasons of late have been, they have some equally “down” moments on their resume. Their finest season to date was two years ago and our team was every bit as good that year.

 

They're not the voice of college football, they do have a strong social media 'voice' though. But they are definitely the squeaky wheel for G5 inclusion to the big boy table.

The rest of the G5 teams & fanbases seem to be taking a "we'll just sit at the kids table until, hopefully, a P5 conference invites us to join.

Except the Bulls lost to them 2 years ago, they went on to win the conference championship and onto a NY6 Bowl to beat a good SEC team and get more publicity than they could ever buy.

And tbh, many of us were pretty arrogant during that brief moment USF was ranked second in the nation.

NY6 Bowl games matter.

They're just higher profiled than the other post season exhibition games. I guess that could mean they matter .....?

Completely forgot about that. So it's some sort of variation on this:

I don't remember the final design he settled on before making his proposal to administration.

Again, the loser mentality.

I'll take an undefeated season, a conference  championship, a Peach Bowl win, plus months of ESPN shows talking about my school any day and twice on Sunday. 

Meanwhile plenty of people in the other 49 states think USF means the University of San Francisco and don't understand why the University of South Florida isn't in South Florida. But they know where the University of Central Florida is. 

You do you and make comments about the 737 Max, rest in peace to the all of  the people onboard those flights, I'm sure you think you are clever. Meanwhile athletically USF remains little brother to those other guys because too many of us are happy with beating them an bringing the I-4 trophy back, temporarily, to Tampa and are okay with bowl games in Birmingham and Memphis in July because #Food instead of playing in Atlanta or New Orleans on New Years Day.

Not enough fans are demanding excellence. 

I'm beginning to think that USF deserves to play in Bowl games in Ray Jay in December against C-USA teams in front of 15k fans.
