  1. Indoor practice facility?

    http://www.baynews9.com/content/news/baynews9/sports/article.html/content/news/articles/bhsn/2017/6/29/hillsborough_footbal.html The bottom of this article says that Strong is pushing for new indoor practice facility. Would be nice
  2. A Few USF FB Kickoff Times Announced

    Does ESPN3 make the call to switch to 4pm? That does not seem right. This is nuts.
  3. Nice look Marlon

    This will always be the better look!
  4. USF realignment "Rumors" "tweets" "etc"

    Found this on Bleacher report http://www.theuconnblog.com/2017/5/13/15634424/notre-dame-join-acc-network-football-uconn-huskies-conference-realignment-undefeated-against-nd Tim Brando of Fox Sports has reported that Notre Dame is having conversations about joining the Atlantic Coast Conference for football. Already a member in all other sports, the Fighting Irish would become the 15th full-time member if this were to happen. Should the ACC be looking for a 16th, surely the University of Connecticut would be a leading candidate. The conference has already announced plans to launch a television network in 2019, a move which seems to be a necessity to keep up with the NCAA’s other major conferences. Currently, the Big 10, Pac-12, and SEC have their own networks and are slated to rake in massive revenue gains as a result. In a world where cable network revenues are declining, live sports has emerged as the some of the most commercially viable programming out there because of its DVR-proof nature. ESPN’s highly-publicized financial woes shouldn’t affect the ACC network’s development. With a rabid, regionally relevant fan base and multiple successful, high-profile athletic programs, UConn would provide a full slate of programming assets across the academic year guaranteed to draw great ratings and keep subscribers from the highly-coveted New York City market through the #30 Hartford-New Haven DMA and into Boston. Heck, UConn’s women’s basketball program has been drawing larger audiences than NBA teams. Along with its excellent academic reputation, our fairest white and blue would appear to be the snuggest fit of any school available if the ACC looks to the “Group of 5” to even things out after adding Notre Dame. The ACC may even see UConn’s greatest weakness in the realignment beauty pageant, tackle football, as less of a factor given the new variables involved. As Husky fans know all too well, however, it is never this cut and dry. First of all, nothing may come of these reports. But even if Notre Dame does join in full, UConn is hardly a shoe-in. UConn may have the best résumé, but will also have opposition from within the ACC. Remember, and never forget, they wanted UConn instead of Pittsburgh but BC was able to successfully block the move by campaigning the conference’s football powers against it. The leadership at BC did it to protect their regional turf. This time around, Syracuse and Pittsburgh may feel the same way and for all we know Duke or UNC may be hesitant to throw a lifeline to a potential hoops powerhouse. Additionally, the ACC could snag a 16th member from elsewhere in the “power five,” such as an Oklahoma or Texas from the vulnerable Big 12. It is still so very early, but these are not the tweet thread ramblings of anonymous, oddly-named Twitter accounts. Notre Dame wants better access to the College Football Playoff and joining the ACC accomplishes that. The money may even be a secondary issue, believe it or not. The UConn Blog has long postulated that this is one of the strongest possibilities for the Huskies should a P5 invite emerge. We’ll be sure to monitor this situation as it develops
  5. I'm predicting a Northwest Championship

    Pretty awesome that a Non power-5 school has made it to the final 2 years in a row. Hopefully Gonzaga wins tonight. I wonder if the NCAA cares about this or maybe its basketball and don't care as much?
  6. Hows our attendance this year with the winning streak? Any noticeable difference?
  7. Genord’s Walk Off Homer Extends Win Streak

    That's awesome! Is Harvard any good?

    http://gridironnow.com/big-12-expansion-talk-two-possible-scenarios/ Big 12 expansion is truly immortal. The league elected to stay at 10 members back in October, disappointing the 20-plus candidates who signed up for a misguided, three-month beauty pageant in which no one was crowned the victor. It was clear, however, that even if the Big 12 was done actively exploring expansion, the conversation and speculation would continue in some form as long as the league retained its status as the smallest Power 5 conference. The Big 12 would expand if it had a suitable candidate. For now, it doesn’t, but nobody is more equipped to ignite an expansion discussion than Texas’ athletic director. For now, that’s Mike Perrin, who told the Austin American-Statesman he “wouldn’t be surprised to see something happen” in Big 12 expansion before his tenure is up in August 2018. That makes one of us, but “something happen” could mean anything from the Big 12 actually extending an invite to revisiting an exploration of future membership. Either way, it’s worth discussing: What could be the next step for the Big 12? Two scenarios stand out. The first is a waiting game for the Big 12. Earlier this month, the SEC announced it would be distributing a whopping $40 million per member. Exact comparisons get a bit sticky, but the Pac-12’s members can expect to receive somewhere around $27 million in conference revenue for the 2015-16 school year. The Big Ten is expected to be somewhere in the ballpark of $35 million, but will see a significant uptick once the $2.64 billion Tier 1 deal it signed with ESPN activates. Last June, the Big 12 announced it had distributed $30.4 million to its 10 members. It’s hard to categorize the Pac-12 Network, which is still struggling for widespread distribution, as anything other than disappointing. It hasn’t been the cash cow or the symbol of prestige that the Big Ten Network and SEC Network have become. If the Big 12 continues to prove it will be closer to the Big Ten and SEC in revenue, it gains a foothold in convincing Pac-12 members to make a cash grab. That’s what realignment decisions are. Arizona and Arizona State have only been Pac-12 members since 1978. The Big 12 has enjoyed a relatively calm period of stability since Texas A&M and Missouri left, and no longer faces annual questions in the offseason about conference implosion, even if Texas and Oklahoma remaining in the league isn’t a given. Still, bringing in two Power 5 programs would further cement the league’s future. If there’s a “wow” move to be made for the Big 12 in expansion, that’s the one. This summer, the Big 12 figured out what most of its members already knew: None of the Group of Five candidates made sense as members. In two-to-three years, maybe that changes. TCU quite literally won its way into the Big 12, and though Houston’s candidacy met resistance from league members outside Texas, the Cougars’ run under Tom Herman in just over a season fashioned them into a more attractive candidate than ever. Is it that unrealistic to wonder if another school with a new-ish face on the sidelines– hey there, Cincinnati, Memphis, UCF or USF– got on a run, it could be viewed very differently if the league revisited the expansion conversation? The league’s recruiting and NFL talent production is down as the Texas talent pool gets more crowded. Adding a new territory — like Florida — would be welcomed for coaches and could only help the financial bottom line. For now, there’s no real movement for the Big 12 in expansion, but for the dreamers out there who’ll never stop talking about it, there’s plenty to examine on the horizon. And one could look to the east or west to see it.
