  1. Memphis has given Melissa McFerrin 9 years...she's 148-125 (.542) with 4 NITs...it might be time to start looking for a new coach.
  2. there is and isn't...the P5 football programs make SO much money off football they can invest heavily in hoops if they choose to. there are some non-P5 powers in conferences like the BE and AAC...Memphis happens to be one of those teams. I mean, Texas Tech (you mentioned Tubby) doesn't have much hoops tradition, but they can pay 2 million a year for a basketball coach simply because they're in the Big XII...USF can't do that.
  3. If Nevada keeps winning (currently 15-3 after winning 24 games last season) then Musselman will be all lined up for a P5 job like LSU, Mizzou, maybe Penn State.
  4. You say that like it's impressive. Going 6-30 in conference play back-to-back seasons is PLENTY of reason to fire a coach.
  5. he didn't get fired from Arkansas and USF because he won too much... his conference record at Arkansas was 31-49 (.388) and his conference record at USF was 37-89 (.294)...that's why he was fired from both schools.
  6. former FAU and Florida asst, Matt McCall, is still quietly killing it over at Chattanooga...now at 43-10 (.811), with an NCAA tourney...makes under 240k a year https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_McCall_(basketball)

  8. Good Game USF! This Memphis team is just so limited without our 6'11'' center Chad Rykhoek. Without him Memphis only has 7 decent players, and only 3 players over 6'6'' (all of which start). it could be a war down in Tampa if he's not back by then.
  9. once Dedric woke up, the game seemed to change...Murry had USF ready though, got em off to a quick start...but reality seems to be kicking in.
  10. It's now the world's largest Bass Pro. I mean, if you're going to build 'redneck disney' why not put it where TN, AR, and MS all meet? they even turned the old luxury suites into hotel rooms...
  11. I'm on my phone and message boards are not graded assignments...now, if you guys want to pay me for my posts, I'll start proofreading them.
  12. I'd love to drop the Sun Dome on-campus...but there's not room for it. I really liked my visit to the Sun Dome:
  13. lol, did you just compare a 12 million dollar basketball arena from almost 40 years ago to a 100 million dollar OCS in 2017? OK then...
  14. you don't need a 66,000 seat NFL stadium with red seats and a pirate ship that costs over 1.2 million a year to rent. it is all about your wants...as in USF just doesn't want to bite the bullet and build a true college stadium...they want to keep on being UAB. I mean, sure there are 30,000 empty seats...but we have CUP HOLDERS!!!! [/rollseyes] see you boys Sat at FedExForum.
  15. you'll never get any of it if you don't go ask...corporate naming rights and big name donors don't come to you, you have to go find them. USF must first want an OCS...and from these conversations, that might not be the case. I do wonder how much of our longing for an OCS doesn't come from the fact we've been told we can't have one. (you always want what people say you can't have) we do have everything we need at the Liberty Bowl from a sweetheart lease, to close proximity to campus.
  16. Like the CSU President said... after checking and re-checking do you really think all these professionals at UCF, FAU, CSU, etc would just say 'screw it' and build these things without any chance of breaking even? I don't...
  17. not true...corporate naming rights, and high dollar seats pay for a LOT. TDECU paid 15 million over 10 years for the naming rights to Houston's stadium...plus luxury seat licenses and skybox licenses. and over 1.2 million in rent per year you don't have to pay.
  18. if both sides are working to better USF, there is no wrong...
  19. but give me an example of that...I can't think of one. the FL schools like UCF and USF have a built in advantage with MASSIVE student populations...a small athletic facilities fee could pay for a big chunk of it. I do like the idea of surveying season ticket holders, and getting the student body to vote on a football facility fee.
  20. wealthy home owners (those houses up and down Grandview are 7 figures)...NIMBYism would be a major issue on that side of campus, which is why Walker/Patterson was so **** perfect...Shirley Raines and RC Johnson killed that. you have to understand that the "Park Ave Campus" was the old JFK Veterans hospital and when the VA moved downtown, that land was sold SUPER cheap to the UofM specifically so they would have land for athletic facilities...so the UofM has always maintained that if they build a stadium, that's where it will be. one of those homes on Grandview is up for sale now... http://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sale/42170510_zpid/globalrelevanceex_sort/35.124357,-89.922163,35.110526,-89.942719_rect/15_zm/
  21. you can have BOTH...make sure the stadium has a high-end section for a few thousand 'big dogs' like Tulane. lower section seating... that connects to the Glazer Club area Tulane did a great job with their OCS
  22. I think you mean hundred...not hundred(s) just put your cup under your seat...I promise, it'll be OK (look at TDECU stadium...130 million...and it has CUP HOLDERS) I mean, just look at em!
  23. look, English...don't mess up muh' Rumshpringa!
  24. in fact, of my travels, the team that feels most like USF was UAB...they too play at a leased off campus stadium that's too large 15 mins from their main campus.
  25. I go to watch MY team play...UGA vs UF does nothing for me, thanks...moreover, those team you list play plenty of games at their OCS. I mean, Ray Jay isn't going to move away just because USF isn't playing there...if Florida wants to play USF home-home...just move that one game to Ray Jay, and schedule an FCS OCS home game to make up for it. hell, I went to see my Tigers play little Ark State at their 30,000 seat on campus stadium and they have a better true college feel to it.
