You appear to know little about USF donor base.   

Ever think they didn't start an OCS campaign because the odds of succeeding were minuscule?

 

 

 

you're right, i don't. my rep is some West Coaster, claims he's a lawyer in Hollywood or something. just tells me to wire the monthly donations and he'll take care of the rest. shady if you ask me, but the guy's real passionate about USF. hell of a cynic tho.

surely you'd wager our odds of 'succeeding' would outweigh football powerhouses like FAU, Mean Green, Tulane and Tulsa?

ya'll postin in an OCS thread!

You should probably stop sending smazza your money and get in touch with Someone on Fowler.

I think you mean, "could never" develop. As in, "I had an English professor at USF that could never teach me how to write a proper sentence." 

Don't know why you let him get under your skin. most of us just ignore him most of the time. You know he's not going to add any value to the convo, so why bother?

they would have nothing to do with a privately financed stadium, on USF property would they?

I know in Memphis facilities that are privately financed and on school owned property are exempt from Memphis/Shelby County Sports Authority control.

An OCS would not be managed by TSA.  I too could see the St. Pete bowl moving, especially if we managed to get the MOSI site.  Of course the name would change.

I mentioned TSA only because they would fight like hell to keep getting the events at RayJay that UofM suggested could be at our facilities.

That stadium looked awfully good last night. Not sure why anyone would want to spend millions of dollars to build and OCS when we have a National Championship caliber stadium to play in.

I mean if you think giving students a shorter distance to travel is worth $150M then I am sure we could find better ways to enrich their lives than that.

It's not about the students it is about building tradition at our University and giving Alumni and the general public a reason to come to USF's campus. This would hopefully create more donors, more future students, and more prestige for our University as a whole.

The stadium looked awesome without all the Bucs crap. They nearly hid the pirate ship too. Wish we could cover the whole stadium with USF logos/colors the way they did last night.

Boom.  Couldn't have said it better myself.

I'm not opposed to dropping some serious coinage on an OCS some day, I just want to see some consistency out of our fan base and an uptick in donors for a few consecutive years.

But no one seems to want to answer: if other schools can do it, why not USF?

That wouldn't solve the problem of playing at a half full NFL stadium with red seats and a pirate ship.

You're getting answers, but you are either incapable of comprehending to them, or willfully turning a blind eye to them.

I bet facilitation and need were a major part of it. UNT, FAU, FIU needed stadiums since there wasn't a feasible option nearby; USF has a very excellent one down the road. 

I just wish they would do fireworks for Bulls games!

First, find an article about donor levels and that may clear things up for you a little. Second, for better or worse, our season tix fan base has grown up in a first class football stadium. While it doesn't have to be a mini RayJay, it can't be the glorified high school stadiums of some of these programs you keep throwing at us have. To put it bluntly, we've got champagne tastes on a wine cooler budget. Harlan will have to be a 100 times the miracle worker he was to get CCS here to make something happen anytime soon on the ocs front.

not true (and condescending), the reasons you throw out have been dismissed by professional ADs and Univ Presidents at places like UCF and FAU (along with others)...as a fan of a school who plays in a leased stadium that can't build a true OCS...I can't imagine why a school like USF or Temple would choose not to since they have the ability...and at least Temple is trying to change that.
