  1. Strategically I want the AAC win over a P5. An SEC P5 at that too, but I would be equally satisfied (most likely more) to see the Tinmen lose So basically this game is a win win for me.
  2. Remaining AAC Bowl Games

    I hope that the tinmen endures the same fate that Peach County has in the GHSA championship game on the same field. For those who might not watch ga have football: Maybe the same refs from Birmingham bowl???
  3. So Who's Going to B-Ham?

  4. So Who's Going to B-Ham?

    Driving over for the day from Middle GA.
  5. Bowl Game - Military

    Haven't looked up pricing but AutoTrain is an option. Load up all tailgate stuff in car, enjoy ride up. I went on a trip one way as a kid we took train up did DC for a week and moseyed back through the Apps. On the way back. PS if you choose this option get a stateroom then thank me later
  6. SoFlo Bulls 38-31 in OT Flowers solomon 485 *If win I wan the C. cup as a "Head of the Enemy" trophy
  7. Are you a fellow Maconite? Been up here 3 years feels like 30 yet never watched a bears game but I do admire what the city and University is doing together Making Macon black and orange. Shoot even GC&SU in Milly is making a presence known there too But back on topic yes what was said before I feel attendance is just a cultural shift across the board and not just USF. It's just exaggerated here for reasons stated before ( fair weather...conf... Legacy..etc) yes money is one of the largest factors as economy nor consumer mindset has never truly been same since the 2008 crisis. And the largest factor I feel is the exponential developmemt in digital technology. I still recall the total amazement of my first ever HD Football game was the Tx TTech game where raiders won and stormed field. It was freshman year at USF I just moved to the city and was really first time having HDTV (it wasn't even 1080p infact they was just having those commercials) I mean I felt like I had better view than front row seats I was on the field I felt and less than 10 years later I get even better quality on my phone plus my living room looks like Mission Control with multiple TV's broadcasting different games multiple laptop/tablets streaming goaline (a must especially if limited on additional screens and this is a minimum beyond bulls game) live stats, bullspen/redditCFB/Twitter etc. Long story short this is hardest competition for live events. A better "experience" is in thier own living room Digital age is even affecting my career too. I work in the mining industry and our products are additives in 85-90% of every thing manufactured. But we are affected by digital age as one of our larger consumers is the paper industry which PDFs and ebooks and electronic signatures are slowly killing it like greening to citrus. So I'll leave you with my shameless PSA ;P ... Kids textbooks are superior to ebooks (personally better for book notes not just trying to sell paper) adults hard archives can't be hacked like servers & clouds can and corporate folks....wet signatures are irrefutable.
  8. 8 team playoff

    Above is my 10 team CFP of Conference champions, just like HS football win your conference to get in. Win out to earn the title. This will place an emphasis on all conference play throughout the year and furthermore it would allow for larger marquee OOC games without fear of SOS implications but as with else its too logical as it negates all the SEC/B10 gerrymandering that goes on in the AP/NCAA/ESPiN Edit: Please note that seeding was done by 2016 Week 15 AP (final regular season)
  9. I know it's end of the bye week but weather is nasty out and I'm bored. Little thought experiment I had with some co-miners out at the mill this week: Recruit your perfect team using your favorite football generalities/profiles/stereotypical players. My "Bulls" recruited as follows: OL: Some Big ol boys out of the midwest QB: 1st string Dual threat out of FL 2nd string West coast pocket passer - rotate throughout play WR: So Flo Speed RB: 1st string Power back out of rural GA/AL 2nd string slippery speed back from FL TE: I'm at a loss of regional but needs to be someone big as an OL but with speed/power DL: Anywhere in SE the meaner the better LB: Texas boys crazy enough to blitz and stuff holes with reckless abandon DB/CB: Caribbean Islanders, I still love the fact that USF at one time had 12 Haitian players and their "code" they communicated with was just speaking french-creole S: So Flo Speed P/K: A European rugby player, can kick as good or better than a soccer kid but also has build and power if needed to scramble or a fake... could be useful in regularly going for 2 why settle for only 7 pts How would you fill a team?
  10. Attendance is an embarrassment

    Sponsored by the Todd
  11. Suggestions to reach 40,000 for homecoming

    Then kick out the douches anyways post season for S&G
  12. Did Quinton Flowers re-enter the Heisman discussion Friday?

    Honestly it is going to be like that guy from Navy(sorry mind draws blank). A true Heisman but due to team, conference,sub-Division and "Convenient" has an Army/Navy game same day voters completely snubbed him
  13. Illinois Attendance

    This.... X100,000. P5 bias will never let a G5 team
  14. Quiz:USF - B1G

    I just completed this quiz. My Score 36/100 My Time 109 seconds  
  15. Helmet decals to honor Irma victims?

    Needs to add for the caribbean islands, they really got the brunt of it. I know that in the hey day I know our FB team was full of islanders. I remember the special where the D would just talk in Creole on the field vs codewords... our Haitian "wind-talkers"
  16. Game on!!

    Why is it I hear Wayne and Garth "GAME ON"..... "CAR"..... "GAME ON"???
  17. San Jose State Game Video

    May we have a "Coaches Cut" sans 1st qtr? ;P But really... good job with all of these replay vids. Thank you fine sir.
  18. Clemson - Kind of funny

    Most Boring police helicopter chase I've seen
  19. Lets see those Birmingham Bowl Tickets

    After much delay: Sect. 9 Row 29 Seats 1&2. Just hope not right behind band... wound up there with student tix to the Florida Lot Lizard game and lets just say Tubas should be made from plexiglass.
  20. Lets see those Birmingham Bowl Tickets

    Having a UPS account and was notified that way, thought it was something else I was expecting. But I actually emailed Athletics and they sent the tracking number. Guessing the auto-email didn't work out as planned.
  21. CFP committee got it wrong

    only pulled from the 20 champs and runner ups. truly I would have had 6. W. Mich 7. Temple 8. App. State leaving SDSU and WKU as only two conf champs not in the dance. Seeding could be optimized little better but those would be the 8 per ruling of the 5 P5 champs and best 3 of 5 G5
  22. CFP committee got it wrong

    Being an engineer I prefer to remove the human aspect from results as much as possible. I always feel an 8 team play off is better. P5 champs, 2 at large, best G5 champ, (honestly I feel best 3 G5 champs but trying to be semi-realistic here). Yes I know football politics... but just really providing a proof of concept here. 8T CFP Picks.xlsx
  23. USF Bowl Game?

    Now living and working in the heart of Georgia... That would be a game to see Birmingham bowl is only game I preordered tix to as it's only one within reasonable travel from home.
