  1. Not sure what to add to this discussion so here goes: oregon = bunch of snowflakes crossfit = cult john klease = sweep the leg, Johnny!
  2. What is elite status? That is a good question. I think it means sustained elite status for a number of years. Like a legacy over decades. To the point that even when you have a bad year or two and you suck, you are still considered elite because everyone knows you'll be back on top in a matter of time. Football examples: Notre Dame, Texas, Alabama, etc. A good example of this type of 'elite' would also be UConn mens hoops. They aren't that great this year, but everyone still considers them to be an elite basketball program. By this definition, we have not come close yet (we are too young as a University, and our sports programs are even younger). In football, I can see us becoming a program that becomes very relevant every decade or so then goes through another weak cycle (a couple of years without a good QB will kill you). Basketball? I'd just like to go to the dance one more time before I die. But I'd say we are on our way to being closer to elite in soccer, golf, softball even WBB. I am just happy being mentioned when they talk about the top 25 matchups, and I love seeing our logo go by in the background behind the espn guys when we are ranked.
  3. Great moment in USF history! Another first for the program. Baby steps.
  4. Lots of IFs there. We ain't getting in to no CFP. Ask Penn State what you have to do to get in. They are probably wondering what else they could have done besides beat Ohio State AND win the Big 10.
  5. Sad that it would/could never happen, but I would 100% be on board with it. I love the idea. And think of the press coverage--any publicity is good publicity.
  6. Same with me. At first, I thought he was all about talk and show. Then a couple of things happened. His recruits started showing what they could do, and he became a bit more "flexible" and open about his scheme. I really started liking the guy. I thought he'd be gone after next year (after he won us a conference championship). Never thought a big P5 program would offer him this year.
  7. Sucks to be in the minors.
  8. ..and she's quite steamy, too!
  9. I agree with this big time. I was the one who posted about USF students having no idea that there was a game going on. My example was commuter students who lived in Pinellas county. I also said that they seemed to know about all the other college matchups going on. If these students wanted to know about USF football, they'd know. The information is out there. The communications are there. So, I think you found the root cause of the attendance problem. The question is not about how to get the word out about the upcoming games. The question is how do we make more people care? How do we make more people WANT to know about USF football? Winning is obviously the #1 thing, but in our case it is not enough. We need to somehow get USF games to be the "place to be." And somehow get it to be socially unacceptable to be a student or alumni who doesn't know USF's W/L record or who we have next week.
  10. I'll take it! Wish it could be UGA...but I'll take it if we get USC or even Vandy.
  11. And with that being said, The USF Alumni Association still does a great job of promoting USF Athletics to members and social media followers.
  12. I get this all the time. The week before the game--at the gym. USF commuter STUDENTS ask me if we have a game this week. They don't know who the opponent is, what time kickoff is, is it home/away, etc. Insane. Same people will often ask on Monday..."who'd we play this week? did we win? whats our record?" Some of these same people could recite the entire gators schedule with dates/times/locations by memory. Not sure what the answer is, but these are students who don't even know what's going on...either that or they don't want to know.
  13. 1. Be undefeated. I bet if we went 4-0, 5-0, 6-0, etc. there would be more people showing up for every game as we came closer to running the table. After one loss, however, we'd be back to just the same old die-hards. It sounds silly, but being undefeated and/or having a big win is what gets ESPN talking about rankings, new years bowls, etc. We don't have a potential "big" win on our schedule next year, and we blew our chance this year with FSU. Only possible choice it to run the table. Casual Tampa fans will come out for an undefeated team. They'll even by a shirt or a hat cause USF would be "cool' again. KInd of sad that is has to be this way, but I think it would work.
  14. I don't think so at this time. I don't think we will lose coach T until we get that coveted conference championship. Or at least until USF becomes a ranked team for a year or two. As far as FSU goes...I think that's quite a reach. I like coach T, and I hope that he will succeed enough to where he would be considered for a job like HC at FSU, but I don't think there's enough on his resume at this time.
