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

3 weeks away and there are still thousands of tickets available for the game against the Badgers.  A B1G opponent for the first game of the season on a Friday night.  I totally get our history / attendance issues / humidity / not Saturday / high school ball / etc., but I'm a little surprised we won't have more than 35,000 there.

GO BULLS!

Perhaps the most daunting task the VPofA faces...but we got the best radio station by definition, all time high on corporate sponsorships, and season tickets are about even with the surge yet to come at last minute.

The focal point of this site, since the beginning is to help with this.  We need to be energetic, inclusive, inviting and active.  Get friends, co-workers, neighbors and strangers involved and aware of the Bulls.  

We can’t sit back as “good fans” and hope that Mr. Kelly can alone ignite the Bay’s support.

This is not directed at you @79 Bull, you’ve been at it as long as me and others.  Just a call to all to get others involved.  And for our own damned selves, be involved, loud and supportive.

Secondly, and not related to the above necessarily, is the heart of the argument on this board about beating good, P5, name recognizable teams and beating American Athletic  teams - even if you get a trophy.

You want Tampa Bay,?  You beat Wisconsin, Ga. Tech and BYU.  Then, you get a percentage back.  Open the next chapter with the CJL and you get the holdouts.

Kids are overrated and it is not like they are only young once, weak excuse but good luck anyways and hope your boys play well.

I was thinking about his post - and it’s not about HS football.  UW will have the same thing, yet they may travel  more than we can get to show up.  They care.  It’s their team and they’re a large enough of a fan base, that hundreds if not thousands can skip Aug 30 because “my kid has football, or it’s on the road”.  But still thousands will show.  

We need to build the base.  Not shame people for life.  I know you were being acerbically funny @Friscobull, I get it.

I have and love my kids and thought I was being obvious in my satire. however B rad, The difference between Wisconsin and Florida,Texas is that Friday night lights is big and our kids (not mine I had girls, **** X chromosome) play in it and live it.  Go to the Midwest schools and they are playing soccer or patty cake, less than 1/2 of their team is actually from Wisconsin, they raid Texas and Florida like most of the big 10.  One last thing stop using those big words, I am too lazy to google that shat (acerbically) jeez
