  1. I am on the next one now regarding just how much I am willing to cough up. I wish I could qualify my answers. If it is a fine stadium which is well built and I am comfortable, 25 bucks. If it is a tin can of a place, 5 bucks.
  2. So, I am doing it now. I have gotten to the question regarding expectations of ticket prices. The question is weighted since it states that the on campus stadium will have "improved game day experience and amenities". Even without that promise, is there really anyone who does not expect prices to go up? If they could keep similar prices for individual tickets , I would still expect the donor levels to increase in cost .

    Even UAB is getting a stadium...

    You are right about this. In fact, I believe he was one of the main reasons that the Big East took a chance on USF.

    I think you misunderstand. I was initially agreeing with you, just stating that there were circumstances which led to the money issues and that it wasn't just the money issues alone which led to the shutdown. Ultimately, is was a good thing for their program. I have no love for UAB. I feel that their AD back in the beginning of our program was behind keeping us out of CUSA football for awhile despite the fact that USF was a charter member. I just hate to see things like that debacle occur.

    You can believe anything you want to. I know the history and the truth. I am not the only one. I am not anywhere near a fan of that program . I would rather that they fail on their own and not because of old grudges from Bear Bryant Jr. and Co.

    I think the the shut down of the UAB program had more to due with the University of Alabama trustees who had some old scores to settle. Even so, it seems the results are the same as you mentioned about waking up the boosters.

    Cannot argue with the cavernous stadium. I was responding to the remarks about the atmosphere. I assumed you meant the fan involvement or excitement.

    USF football was still in recovery from the Skippy Poo doldrums. Would have been the same if there was an on campus stadium.

    USF Future Scheduling Strategy

    It looks like the philosophy is in line with what most of us have talked about. Mostly FBS with only an occasional game vs. FAMU or possibly Bethune Cookman. The last quote in the article by Harlan is all too true.

    I was trying not to say or think that. I seem to recall getting stuck with 2 1AA's because of that in 2003.

    Anyone else notice that the Elon game next season appears to be the last FCS team on any future schedule? In fact, there are a couple of seasons which are full of only FBS teams. I think there has been an effort to improve the schedule.
  14. I do not disagree with your sentiment but when you are in a disrespected league, sometimes concessions have to be made. To me, a 2 for 1 is more agreeable than a one on the road and done. This solves two issues. The first is our fans' complaint about unattractive home games. The second, it is a way to get a quality opponent on the schedule more often so the outsiders cannot dismiss our schedule if our team has a really good season.

    I think most here admire your honesty which Is why we enjoy your comments even when we disagree. Even so, agreeing with that elitist simp should have you thinking about your opinion. Look, I cannot stand UCF fan but enjoy it when the powers that be are upset or uncomfortable when everyone does not bow and go along with their talking points. From my irreverent outlook, I am enjoying this.
