Crazy to me that only 85 people have made gifts to the "Uplift the Bulls" drive that athletics has undertaken. It closes on July 9. Go in there and make any gift.

I have already donated twice to USF athletics this year.  Covid has impacted my families income and I am not donating anymore until the world becomes normal again.

You deserve congrats. So this post wasn’t directed at you. Go Bulls.

I know, just stating that many donors are probably feeling the same way.

Well, then we need to activate those who aren’t established donors. This is a great opportunity to get started because even a $20 gift gets you involved.

Per Michael Kelly, less than 1% of all alumni have EVER given to USF athletics. As much as I would NEVER vote for him, we need a Bernie Sanders-type grass roots campaign to save USF athletics.

Feel the Bull!

The majority that go to USF aren't as passionate about athletics so to get many to even care you have to  start winning big games and conference championships in the big sports football/basketball.   Do that then you might see that number increase.

Athletics has made some positive changes. I see some differences over years past. No matter the size or frequency of the donations(s) they are making contact to show their gratitude. makes you feel connected and appreciated. Email, text, phone calls. Lelo is staying busy he's appreciated.  Go Bull's!

small donors? there's a reason the political campaigns go after the small donor. most small donors will give more than once.

This! Our athletic program has been putrid in the sports that really count. In 50 years you can count the number of conference championships on one hand...and don’t even get me started with football. When Temple has won a conference championship in football and we have not, that is telling.

  • Quotes

    "There is no inherent fear among this group of players. The fear of failing drove the program from day one - the fear of failing the coaches, the fan base, the university, each teammate, themselves. Now, as we head into the biggest game in our history at home on a national stage against the highest ranked team to step on OUR field, the players are taking an introspective look at themselves. Unfortunately, I don't know if they get it. They lack the fear."

    Terry Lucas, 09/26/22

    “In my mind, I’m kind of like, ‘OK, excuses over'. We know what we need to do. We’ve got the right team together, and now we move forward, and we’ll evaluate and be accountable to each other, including myself, from this point forward.”
