  1. Something fun for the offseason

    Why do fans jump off the bandwagon when Florida “looses”?
  2. Maybe I need to try that one.
  3. Some toast there subs, some press subs, some have unique items, some have unique toppings, some have unique ways they recommend their subs, some are uniquely quick, some have large amounts of unique hot sauces and some are Publix.
  4. Honestly what is unique, interesting or special about a Publix sub? I don’t think they are horrible by any stretch of the imagination but they are equally not special and the definition of average.
  5. Ether as in the heavens not the gas.
  6. I’ve seen the Platonic form of a sub in the ether and it doesn’t look like a Publix sub, and deep in your heart you know that I am right.
  7. The way it’s set up on here that can kind of make sense. The way it originally worked on the internet comments got moved up or down based on rating. People would want more pertinent information at the top ,whether it was what they necessarily agreed with or not, and things off topic to get burried. As the country has moved alway from being able to have any discourse or even be exposed to contrarian ideas it became more common to try to bury any idea that upset your sensitivities.
  8. Then we better get more money from people.
  9. Historically on the internet that would be the only good use of a down vote (not being on topic) and not saying inconvenient truths like Publix subs aren’t that great, the AAC is our worst nightmare and we would be better off with UCF curling up and dying than we are with trying to declare them national champions. That being said I don’t understand passive aggressive people that like to downvote over fear of confronting someone on the scary streets of the internet.
  10. To build Spectrum stadium we would need a blended average of $2,680 from each of those 25,000 fans assuming there are 25,000 that would give and we would want to build Spectrum 2.0.
  11. I agree they are not by favorite by any stretch of the imagination. They are average at best and their only redeeming quality is being fast, something that is the complete opposite of Publix which seems to have confused being slow with being quality.
  12. Quiznos is under rated.
  13. Firehouse and Jersey Mike’s are both way better than Publix, Jimmy Johns is probably a tie since at least they are fast.
  14. It wasn’t me. I just think much like our former coach Publix subs are overrated and getting by on a name that carried more weight in the past. If anything I liked the post because it gave me a chance to take pot shots which I like; my money is on someone that didn’t know we had most of our recruiting filled by in the early period and actually thought there was some suprise to be had.
  15. Publix is the Skip Holtz of subs.
  16. Of which the university gets $0
  17. It’s not even three million it’s two and change which I suppose is marginally better than zero (assuming that’s what we would have ended up with if we hadn’t signed the rights deal which is probably not true or had we not been in the aac which is also probably not true). If playing multiple weekday games and the slate of AAC talent cost us 10,000 butts in seats it would have been a wash even if I concede we would end up with zero dollars in tv rights in either scenario (which I do not). For the bargain basement price the league sold their media rights for we should have negotiated better terms when it came to setting the schedule, I can’t imagine the next best bid was drastically worse than what we settled for and if cash wasn’t to be had we should have gotten concessions.
  18. We get less than $3 million a year, that’s not enough to be strong armed into any decisions.
  19. People seem to be enjoying it. Yes I believe they did, not having more barriers to the sun is a real negative in Florida, I would even say it’s an issue of public safety.
  20. The other poster suggested that either Ray Jay or an ocs copy Hard Rocks canopy model, I agreed that more shade would be a better fan experience, not really sure how that could be questionable but it’s the times we live in I guess.
  21. Yes we are USF. We were a founding member of the AAC and played role in every member that joined it. We allowed the less than $3 million dollars we received in media rights over dictate when we play. We wrongfully terminated the heart and soul of the program and replaced him with a skip holtz. We diminished tailgating. We raised prices as the demand plummeted. We reorganized the season ticket system. We valued habing more home games over having quality opponents.And most egregiously we reacted to the loss of fans by simply closing areas and tarping over others. The past few weeks we seem to be being proactive so I am hopeful for the future but most of our decisions outside of joining the BigEast were simply horrible and tone deaf to the consumers.
  22. Which btw I believe we are doing, when half your schedule is seen as barely a step above fcs you don’t get the luxury of playing the warm up game, bringing in more p5 games by any means necessary, $99 season tickets, getting an early buzz by giving away items your just storing for no reason and increasing first day renewals by 20x, these are all good things to right the ship. Thinking you are entitled to support and blaming apathetic fans, not so much. Do something!
  23. If you work during the week and can’t make the game that’s not apathy. Also apathy makes it seem like it’s the consumers fault where as naming the reasons helps to bring to light how we can make changes to be a more appealing choice for people’s discretionary funds. We have made decisions that led to this decline and we need to make decisions to fix them.
  24. Well the shade part is true and the red seats do stick out like a sore thumb when the place is mostly empty. Maybe we can just change our color scheme and mascot.
  25. The overall atmosphere right now is just bad. It wasn’t as big of a deal when the seats were filled with green and gold but now on our best day only half the seats our filled. Something needs to change and change in a hurry because it feels like a funeral on most game days. We need to find anyway to make people come to the stadium and be loud and proud. I think the $99 seats and the jersey incentive is a good start but we need to get more drastic in our measures, make USF football fun again. We should have made the old away team sections standing sections since it wouldn’t have effected any current season ticket holders. Also I agree with you more shade would be a huge benefit to the stadium.
