Last year our offense was banged up. This year it seems to be our defense.

Which would you rather have?

Injured offense or Defense?

--For me it would be to have an injured defense, because as long as your offense can keep it up and put points on the board you will be in the game. Look at Texas Tech!

If Gregory will open up the play book I would take the injured defense. If the play book isn't opened up then I would rather have the healthy defense to keep the scoring low.

I'll pick injured offense.  Score a bit and let the defense take care of stopping the other team.

How can you "open up" a one-page playbook?

Hey, I think the playbook is at leat two pages.  But there are only 3 plays per page...  lol

Seriously though, I'd rather have a banged up Offense. 

Defenses win championships, the Bucs proved that in the past.  We grew up on our Defense, hell, we have never had an offense.  WEve had some players, but never a solid offense.  Until last year.  We showed signs of a great qb, some good (though inconsistent) receivers, and a hint of a running game by committee.  Then injuries to the OL took their toll and our season dipped a bit.

Give me a solid D and I'll show you a team that has a chance to win virtually every game...

Does the offense suck that bad? Really? I didn't know 450 ypg sucked that bad along with 33.5 ppg. That would make us a Top 20 offense.

I guess because of Grothe's improve skills that's why we're putting up so much yardage. If the players executed the plays in the playbook we would be that much more dominating. While I agree that we could be better on offense, I think the blame has to be on the players for not executing at critical times.

Yes, Grothe is a much improved passer thus far. Also, I don't see out WR's dropping as many passes either. Let's also look at who we have put the points up against. UTM, UCF, FIU, and the only respectable one KU. Gregory only seems to call the right plays in for 1 quarter of the football game. The rest of the time he just tries to NOT lose!

Gregory's offenses are famous for racking up huge numbers against crappy defenses.

Examples from this season:

1) UT Martin (seriously...just awful)

2) UCF (one of Conference DOA's best teams....nuff said)

3) KU (great offense, not so great defense)

4) FIU (worst team in D-1)

And yet, how many yards & points did we rack up against FIU?

Tell you what...let's wait and see how Gregory's gameplans against the likes of Cincy & UConn play out.

    We've talked about getting back to being the toughest, most violent people out there. Let's be the best version of ourselves and really get back to the culture of how we (USF) used to step across the line and play anybody. Let's hold on to the culture of when they were tough … and they (opponents) knew it was going to be long damn day for themselves.

    Last I checked the scoreboard doesn't have a spot for current bank balance on it.
