    IPF Update

    For some reason I thought we were further along than this. http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/bulls/2018/02/13/charlie-strong-pitches-usf-football-facility-to-trustees/ Tampa Bay Times staff writer Claire McNeill, covering today's USF Board of Trustees meeting, had this dispatch from the proceedings: USF's proposed $40 million football center advanced another degree Tuesday morning as Bulls coach Charlie Strong made a pitch to university trustees, who agreed the school should start seeking designers for the indoor practice facility. Strong has been recruiting for the last three weeks, he said, visiting "probably over 120 high schools," from Atlanta to Pensacola to Miami. "It's all about facilities," he said, encouraging the USF leaders in the room to keep strengthening USF's brand. Plus, he said, there's just the matter of trying to schedule practices and classes around Florida's unpredictable rain showers. "Any time we're practicing for a critical game and a thunderstorm pops up, you have to get off that field," he said. USF coach Charlie Strong told school trustees Tuesday an indoor practice facility is essential for his program [OCTAVIO JONES | Times] The 160,000-square-foot facility would pop up to the north of USF’s Lee Roy Selmon Athletics center. Strong said he’ll do whatever he has to do to get it built. USF officials said the project will be “donor-driven.” Trustees agreed to move on to the next step, sending out a request for qualifications for designers. Later Tuesday, a USF finance committee will dig into some of the numbers. Strong stressed that he's not a territorial coach, and that all sports will be able to use the facility. "I want to make sure we're all in this together for every sport to have the chance to be successful," he said. He also joked that some recruits still need a little help in knowing exactly who the Bulls are. "'Weren't y'all the team that went undefeated?'" some would ask him. "No," he said he replied, "we weren't that team."

    You guys really don’t think that we should have been ranked by the Committee?

    I guess I really don’t get what the confusion is. Anything based off of ranking and/or SOS is going to downgrade the AAC unjustly. That is really the bottom line.

    I am not even talking about Ucf. The point is that if our conference was not extremely under valued we would be the 4th or 5th, maybe even the 3rd best conference. If our teams were ranked were they should be, Ucf would have been a “quality” loss. Conference ranking is based on those same subjective perceptions that kept the AAC down, so what makes the AAC the 6th best conference, because we were told so?

    Do you believe that Ucf, Memphis, or us would have no shot at beating Ohio State, Wisconsin or Penn State? I think all three of the top AAC teams could beat them. So while get what you are saying, the winner of the AAC should have been in the conversation but it was not even close.

    But their body of work was deemed unimpressive by the “powers that be” Memphis should have been ranked higher, we should have been ranked higher, etc... Thier body of work was unimpressive because those in power downgraded the whole AAC. Everyone can feel how they want about ucfs silly National title claim, but they have been setting the narrative instead of having it set for them. Thier fight benefits us as current members of the G5 (another narrative that is now accepted). Not all the pub they are getting is negative, not by a long shot. We are three weeks removed from the National Championship game and people are still talking about it. From a marketing standpoint, it has been impressive.

    My point was that both the championship claim and the P6 are made up things by the G5 (also a made up thing) so why is everyone raging about the made up championship claim but not the made up P6?

    But ucf’s silly national champs claim is taken seriously?

    Why is there not outrage and embarrassment about the AAC claiming P6 status? How dare we step out of the shadows of the mighty (and made up) P5?

    Part of the problem is that many fans of G5 programs believe the P5 narrative you are championing. I believe that these statements are all lazy conjecture. They/we are not better than an Auburn type school because why? We would lose lots of games if we played Auburn's schedule says who? You have swallowed the P5 narrative hook, line, and sinker. Improving this situation requires bold stances, not what the P5 sells us as realism.

    Stop it - WAKE UP

    If memory serves we had roughly 7/8 years in the BE, we were receiving significantly more money than ucf as they were playing in the MAC/CUSA. I have no idea how much money they received from donations but, at that time, I find it hard to believe they would have received more than we could pull in. I don’t know where that money went, but we did something with it.

    Money from BE tv money through the payout money from the BE schools that left. Roughly a decade of significantly more money.
