So. Was that the annual road stinker?

Recommended Posts

Every year, the Bulls play one complete stinker on the road. Look at the results for any year, and there's always one road game in which USF plays below its capabilities. Here's the list of Annual Road Stinkers so far:

1997 @Elon

1998 @Hofstra

1999 @James Madison

2000 @Middle Tennessee

2001 @Utah

2002 @Arkansas

2003 @Southern Miss

2004 @South Carolina

Not that the Bulls should have won all these games, nor does a road loss mean the team played poorly. But in each of these games, USF played significantly below its capability... which, again, seems to happen exactly once per football season.

With all due credit to Miami's defense, which was awesome, USF's offense didn't play all that well either. They looked inept a week after looking spectacular.

So, here's the question: was the Miami game this year's Annual Road Stinker? Do we have that one bad game out of our system, or do you think this team is going to play like crap at some point in a conference road game?

The Canes have a better football team.   Our team is pretty good, but we are not at their level.   Their d took over the game.   We made mistakes because we had a mismatch going against that D.   Our D actually played fairly well, but they were on the field all night.   We can still have a great year, but sometimes you play someone that is just better.   Its not a melt down to lose to a better team.   Our guys played hard all night and I am proud of how they did not quit.    If they had mailed it in it would have gotten much uglier and we wouldn't be sitting around trying to turn our QB into the goat.   This is a team sport and one player does not make or break you.   This time the Canes had the better team.
