With all that has been going on in the world of late and my own personal plate pretty full, it has been a long time since I have reached out to this board.  Being isolated has given me lots of time to think and take stock.  After nearly a half century of long-suffering fandom of the USF Bulls (nee the South Florida Golden Brahmans), I finally figured out that the one thing that has been consistent during all these years of USF's athletic struggles:

ME. 

Thus, I have made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of my alma mater and have surrendered my season tickets and moved out of state.  I am confident that now, without me as an albatross as a necktie, that this will finally free up all our programs to achieve the success they so richly deserve and we will see the championships begin to roll in when college athletics restarts somewhere about the year 2525 ("If man is still alive; If woman can survive.....")

I will miss the games, the personal interaction student athletes, coaches and staff and the camaraderie with fellow USF alums and Bulls fans.  But desperate times call for desperate actions.  I will continue to support my Bulls, though with appropriate social distancing -- from several states away.

My best to all Bulls everywhere.  Here is wishing you all fare well, come what may.

Not sure how far “Several states” is but If you find yourself in southern Nevada on gameday I’ll buy you a beer. Haven’t been to a home game since 09(although i kept my tickets to donate) so I know what you’ll be going through.

I’m not sure why one wouldn’t be able to post on the bullspen because they moved but if the cost of being a winner is losing all of the long suffering fans on this board I do not think I would make the trade.
