It's really more for fun than the prizes, so please participate, enjoy the contest and have fun!

Good Luck Bulls!

Please allow six weeks for delivery of prizes.

As with previous years' contests, Bulliever is the final judge on all entries.  He will select the winner based on pre-established criteria.   All decisions are final, unless Bulliever changes his mind.  Finally, Bulliever will only refer to himself in the third person when typing in small print.

  • 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

    "For me, I never considered it that way (as a stepping stone), honestly. When I was offered the head job at South Florida, and I'm sincere about this, I never thought I would ever go anywhere."
