  1. San Jose State game

    Anyone going to be in San Fran instead of San Jose on Friday night?
  2. No way we don't finish in the Top 10 if we win our bowl game undefeated. At worst that would mean we just beat another Top 10 team in a NYD Bowl Game even if we get no credit for the rest of our schedule. I know the CFP playoff is a long shot, but not being in the Top 10 would be equally as unlikely.
  3. Calling it now. IF we go undefeated we will be in the CFP. Yes it will take us winning by big margins, yes it will take P5 champs with 2 losses or even 3, but I think it will line up. The difference between us and WMU is that WMU started the season unranked not even receiving votes. In the initial CFP Rankings (week 10) WMU came in at #23 while 8-0. By winning their remaining 5 games they climbed 8 spots. At week 10, we should be 9-0 and I would estimate top 10 ranking since we start the season ~#20. Winning our last 4 against a potentially ranked Houston, and whoever the AAC West Champ is could propel us to top 5 and a CFP berth.
  4. 2017 season tickets

    Got my notification yesterday and received tickets today! I'm in Atlanta which I assume is closer to the printing facility for shipping purposes.
  5. What do you think of Lane Kiffin?

    Sell out to win AAC CG next year and get butts in seats. Kiffin would be your best option for both of those in the short term. Make no mistake he would definitely be a 1-2 year rental, but I would take it for our first ever championship. We will not get anyone better who would make us more likely to win in their 1st year here. Much different hire than in previous years as this would not be a rebuilding. Whoever we hire would be expected to win immediately. Hate the guy as an individual, but he knows offense and how to recruit, so I can put my personal feelings aside for 1 season.
  6. Birmingham bowl plans??

    Staying at the Tutwiler Hampton Inn downtown. I would guess team hotels are most likely the Westin and Sheraton in Uptown as that is where the pep rally the day before the game is. I have stayed at both of those hotels and they are both what you would expect. There is a nice strip of restaurants in uptown just 1 Block from those hotels.
  7. 2017 Season: 13-0 w/ CCG, NY6 Bowl, Game Projection

    I think you are missing a key point that we actually get 3 bye weeks next year because of moving our 1st game up. There will be one more bye week sometime in the middle of the conference schedule that is currently undetermined.
  8. Games of Interest this week

    I would add Wyoming @ New Mexico. If Wyoming wins, they go to the championship game, leaving Boise State out.
  9. Anyone going to SMU, in Dallas, Nov 19?

    Who in your group will not be wearing Bulls gear?!
  10. American Football Team That Will Disappoint

    Also on the fan boy train for this season. And disagree that we will disappoint, but what is wrong with saying Nichols is an NFL talent? I love Marlon Mack, but agree with the writer than Nichols is probably the better NFL player (best USF CB since Mike Jenkins) and don't see how that means he doesn't know about our team. If anything the fact that he named a player other than Marlon Mack shows that he follows us a little more closely than you think.
  11. American Cup II (updated standings)

    Do you have a link to these standings or just calculated yourself? I am curious to see how UConn has such a large lead. Also what is up with our Cross Country and Track and Field teams, thought we'd have some athletes to do better in these sports?
  12. Grade of Recruitment Class

    Man you really just crushed my comfort level with the depth of our TE's. I had no idea Nataro had left, good call.
  13. Grade of Recruitment Class

    We have Adkinson, Wilcox, and Nataro who I believe were all 3 star recruits behind Dillon. Yes they haven't played and are unknown, but no more so than a true freshman would be. I really wanted a DT as well, but don't press the panic button yet. Hector and Senat will both be only JR's. Bronson a SO. Gonzalez was a highly rated recruit and would have seen playing time last year as a True Freshman if not for injury. Getting Calloway back this year is probably from what I have heard but not guaranteed.
  14. USF's 4-2-5 defensive scheme will stay

    Against Navy I would really like to see us go to a single high true safety and then go to a 4-3 front and still keep the husky/striker in as well.
  15. Happy NSD!!

    Thousands of Corporations around the world still use fax, its really not that outdated of a technology. With scanners and efax it is just as easy as email except it goes to a fax number instead of an email address.
