Hello all,

I am bored, tired of talking about the Big 12 and we are officially 1 week away from fall camp. I am known for keeping my green and gold goggles on so I shall break down why I feel we will win 8-10 games this year. I am sharing my views and will not go back and 4th on my opinion nor do I want to make any bets. If you feel we will have a bad year, feel free to express yourself and all power to you. If you have your goggles on, go ahead and say why. We can circle back to this thread after our awesome 2021 season. Go Bulls!!!

Coaching staff: CJS has replaced 40 players and added new staff. I feel that Cam Aiken (RB), Bobby Bentley (WR & Passing Game Coordinator), Ernie Sims (LB), and AJ Artis (Strength & Conditioning) are awesome additions. Our biggest weakness last year was conditioning. I'm going to give an ex-SEC S&C coach the benefit of the doubt. 


  1. QB - I’m good with Fortin, Williams, March, or McClain. They all shined at the spring game. 
  2. RB - We have 7 running backs and 4 of them weigh 200Ibs or more. The other 3 have speed. 
  3. O-line - This will be the most improved position. CJC and Jarren Williams both mentioned being impressed with the O-line in their most recent interviews. I stand by having 2-4 future NFL players on this line. They will provide much more time for the passing game and make some holes for our Running game.
  4. TE - We are deep.
  5. WR - Unproven but deep and have a lot of speed. 
  6. Conclusion - Our offense is going to EXPLODE this year. We will be back to scoring at least 30 pts per game.

Defense: I am banking on Glenn Spencer working the same magic he did at FAU. FAU had the 92nd ranked defense and in 2018, after his first year in 2019, they were the 40th ranked defense. I will write off his first year here as getting to know the players and restrictions from the pandemic. The players were out of shape and had no formal camp. This year he knows what he is working with and had a full spring and fall camp. We were 122nd ranked total defense last year. I feel if we get our total rankings in the “60s” we should be OK. Hell, if USF can get the total defense ranked in the low 70s, that should be good enough with the offense we have. 

Conditioning: This defensive line is pretty old. At this point, they should be at their “college physical peak” due to their ages. If Pickney and Kegler can get their strength up we should be ok. Besides Thad Magnum, our defenses weren’t strong enough to overcome their size. S&C coach Trumain Carroll left the team in pretty good shape right before he left for KSU. A.J Artis came in from Tennessee and should have this Defensive line “physically” ready. 
Transfers:  Xander Yarborough and Jamari Stewart should be able to get us more sacks. I would still like another DT or DE transfer, but if these are the only 2 transfers we have to work with, I am good with them both. Jamari Stewart is a bit skinny, but I’m banking on him gaining some weight this off season. 

Below is my pre-fall camp depth chart....this is pretty much what we are working with this year

You have too much time on your hands...

I can spare 20 min to make a thread to encourage more dialogue.  This page is getting boring. All people want 2 do is crap on the team.

I'd say 90% of people on here want nothing more than to be excited about a football team of ours. Actually, most of them would settle for not being repulsed by our team. "People" have done far more than their part for USF football over the years.

The Bucs have sucked a majority of their existence, yet eventually they won 2 Superbowls. Did you spend the bad years upset or did you go with the flow on the path to those 2 Superbowl wins?Im a Saints fan and it has been an even rougher journey to success. In the end, I always believe in the teams I follow no matter what and stay grateful for whatever success they have. Im a Heat, Saints, Dolphins, Mets and USF fan. There are a lot of losses in most teams I grew up loving but I choose to enjoy the journey regardless of my teams success.
