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

Part of the problem is lack of stability at AD.  You go from high energy CJL and then go low energy safe Holtz then you go with hip and higher energy Taggart then go very low energy and sleeping Strong.  

It's very simple, with our athletes a high energy coach does best.  We arent going to run some complex high iq offense with success. 

We need a complete reset.

Yes, that's an instability but there is instability all over the program.  Some of it is inherent in being a G5 team.  If you get someone good, they bolt for greener pastures (well, we had one who wanted to stay...) - AD, HCs, Coordinators, etc.  And with the portal, maybe players.  Add in the different timelines on starting new coordinators with new systems.  Factor in player turnover and injuries.  Add and new University President and their agenda.

Right now, we will be not be considered as a prime opportunity for any coaches other than those who are looking to step up and revamp a whole program.  Someone who can build it from the ground up.  Someone who is crazy emotional so that the players are up.  Someone humble enough to have done the team laundry and work out of trailers!  But, those coaches don't exist.

I know many want to fire Charlie into the sun this morning, but Kelly is a very measured guy. I think he waits until the end of the season. I could see him booting Charlie before the UCF game, likely not earlier. It would surprise me, at least.

I get it, the whole "fire early and put your name in the hat" for all of the prospective coaches to lure, but to me, USF isn't in a position to take advantage of that like the FSU's of the world are.

Waiting is safe, safe is death. We aren’t in a position to wait. All the decent candidates will be gone. If he’s going to make a move it needs to be done soon and we need to get an active search going pretty quickly

It kind of feels like this is what administration and athletics has been trying to do to the football program for some time now. 

But I agree with Dan....nothing as to coaching changes is going to happen until season's end.....

or until the end of next season.

I would hope that Kelly is already in discussions with some Head Coach prospects and has a plan before Strong is fired.

No coaching changes will be made until the season is over. If no changes are made within 3 days after the ucf game the entire staff will be back but the fans might not be

I agree. not sure FSU is in that position either.

we have made our 2 worst hires when we broke the bank and thought they were can't miss.

we don't need a splash hire. Usually those are the worst and are about trying to appease fans and sell tickets.
