Oh, you want offseason? I'll give you offseason...

HOWDY! Are you looking for quality college sports content?!? Well tough Cheese Nips, this is the off-season.

I love the internet

I can hear you. Yeah, YOU, nerd. "You football elitist, it's softball & baseball season after all!" SHUT UP THOSE DON'T COU...wait, we're doing alright in those sports? Huh. Still, quiet down. I'll turn this article around. I'm not going to tell you again.

So, here we are. One hundred & change days away from FOOTBAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. A season already riddled with transfers, coaching shake-ups & wait, what the Hell is the name of our conference? Conference USA Today? American Gladiator Conference? Even joke references to the conference are obsolete.

Crap, we're not in CONCACAF now, are we? Our travel budget is boned.

This sort of off-season is becoming a normality for our (ever shriveling) fanbase. However, as much as we've come to expect disappointing seasons, we have also become accustomed to periodic glimmers of hope & promise. Examples?

EXAMPLES!

We beat Auburn! YAY!

We're number 2 in the country! YAY!

We beat FSU! YAY!

We got Skip Holtz! YAY!

We beat Notre Dame! Yay!

That looks like a pair of normal seasons most programs.

That was 6 of our seasons. Six. Seis. Whole lot of sadz in there.

(This is where the Fire Doug Woolard stuff normally goes)*

I am legitimately excited for Coach Willie Taggart's first season "driving the bus" that is the USF football program. I've heard nothing but positive things about the man, except after practice. Nobody says good things about their Coach after practice. I've met the man personally**; He is charismatic without being the sleazy salesman normally associated with being a good college recruiter. Also: Much taller than he looks.

I'm on the bus.

**I was with Coach Taggart, President Genshaft & Florida state senators in a capitol building conference room. The only time Coach wasn't paying complete attention was when he was considering recruiting while we were in Tallahassee. If you're wondering, that is when I got on the bus.
