Are you still tied to Amazon sales?

This is the only site that I go to regularly on the internet.  I could have one bookmark 😁

Compared to operating the site and moderating it, I'd say the donors have the easy part.  Thanks for doing this all of these years.  I've learned a lot about USF and football in particular.

Thanks for all the hard work Brad, the disappointment of CJL not returning to USF has hit TheBullsPen, and the nation as a whole very hard.

I was going to send you each a private note, but I thought you deserved to be thanked again here in public. 

We have a lot of other things in our lives that matter far more than a message board.  Never more so than now, with the pandemic and unknown future.

Board traffic has dropped to a level lower than I can find in published Google reports which means we're probably at levels as low as when the site launched more than 20 years ago.  Along with that, the ad revenue (0.69 today) is falling off the table.  

I really want to thank those wonderful members that at the start of the year (and years prior) made a donation or continued their existing donation/subscription.   This year, the $900 donated will cover the coast of this site (at this rate of usage) for a year.  

This is not an ask for donations, just making sure donors know they are appreciated and everyone knows this board will be here regardless of what the next year holds for us.  I hope we get things up and running at USF and across the country soon.

As I huddle up at home and direct my attention to my wife and kids, along with their lost jobs and interrupted schooling, personally I'm thankful I can come to this board and I'm also thankful others have been kind enough to remove the financial burden.

Thank you.

Brad

Our condolences to them.  😁

On serious side, appreciate all your efforts.

Wow. I just looked and August 18 will be the 10th anniversary of my subscription. Trickle down economics works. 🙂
