USB without NIOS

I was wondering if it was possible to achieve usb data communication between the altera board and the PC not using the NIOS system. If it is, how is it done?

Put a USB controller into the FPGA. either write one yourself or have a look on opencores.org.

i am also trying to design an architecture of usb controller to enable read data from external flash drive (through  

usb port of de2 board) and store it in onboard sram memory chip of altera de2 board and vice versa. i am trying to do it purely in hardware using vhdl or verilog that means i don't want to use the nios ii or sopc builder.
