Especially for the oldtimers that grew up with the program, this is a particularly good installment from Jim Louk. 

Excerpt:

Home field success is nothing new to the Bulls, even at Tampa Stadium where they played the program’s first nine home games. USF went 6-3 at the old stadium, with the most memorable game being the 80-3 win over Kentucky Wesleyan on opening night in 1997.

Since then, the Bulls have gone to battle 72 times at Raymond James Stadium. They’ve won nearly 80 percent of the time (57-15) and have only one season (2004) with a losing home record. But even those numbers pale in comparison to the 21-game run from 2000-2003.

Think about it a minute … you could have attended every home USF football game for just under four years without seeing a Bulls loss. After Hofstra on Nov. 13, 1999 and until TCU on Oct. 10, 2003, the Bulls were perfect at home.

I felt like crying at the end of that TCU game. That was disheartening. Probably the most memorable loss USF has endured, in my mind. That or Rutgers in 2007, that one was pretty soul-crushing too.

I sat in my seat for 20 solid minutes in the student section after the TCU loss. The defense kept us in the game for so long that I thought we were going to pull it off.
