I would not start planning what the seats are going to look like just yet. You guys know that this probably 10 years of fundraising right?

Roll over to Ray Jay for the big games. 

Defeating purpose of having OCS.  One of purposes of OCS is so that you CAN have big time opponents on campus in a great environment. 

Y'all just don't get it.....

it has to be at LEAST 40k seats.... Less is way to small.

If this team has continued success announced will pass 40k....

Since we have been in he AAC we have had only 2 games surpass 40k announced... 

rank 15 Miami and Rank 13 FSU,

 

BUT this year we had 4 games over 35k announced, 3 if you remove FSU.

UCF is in a down year on thanksgiving was 3rd highest attendance 36,056... now pit us against UCF when we are both ranked or playing for the division. Should pass 40k easily.

The first two two games this year were 35,976 and 36,557.... 

Min announced 2016 was 30,297 (Uconn) 

 

If we Strong (lol that was autocorrect, but I will let if fly) together some seasons of making bowl games we should have attendance average in the 35-40k range. We need more than 40k to be able to sell the tickets, and for our big UCF games that will happen. 

 

If if we are ranked most years I think a 45k stadium is a good number, design for expansion to to 55k, then 65k.

And we should not want to ever play at RJS again except a bowl game. Even in a 45k stadium, I'd rather play all of our big games on campus. Bring the excitement to campus... make tickets scare through the low supply.

On Campus always and only; unless it's a CFB Championship

We averaged 37k this year. 

Don't bother with the actual numbers, all other 127 FBS programs use announced.  Fact is 37K tickets were sold per.

30k will do nothing to bring in big opponents.  Say goodbye to the Florida States, Texases, and whatever other opponents we have on OOC schedule. 

MAC and Sun belt programs have 30k stadiums.  Is that what we aspire to.

Our arch-rival has a 45k stadium.  Are we any less than them?  Our peers in Cincinnati and Houston have 40K seaters.  Their attendance is worse than our most years.

Stadium will be between 40-50K.  That's not a question.  Tulane build a 30k seater.  Are we now Tulane.

30K is the dumbest thing I have seen posted in a while (no offense to you). 

 

 

Thanks for adding the no offense. I am sorry my opinion of USF and the future of college football isn't aligned with your delusional thinking. If that makes what I said the dumbest thing you have read then so be it.

UCF never sells out their stadium and has started to play games at their old place (mostly for political reasons).

There is no reason why USF couldn't use Ray Jay if needed. Not that it matters, how many P5 opponents has USF played at home OOC? A handful of games against UM and FSU, a few scheduled vs. ACC teams like UNC and NC State when USF was apart of the club?

Attd is trending down across NCAA. USF has been relegated to the kiddy table. There is no return on a 50k seat stadium.

I am not sure if you have seen the news but we play in the same conference as Tulane. Yes we are Tulane. Their small stadium is clearly killing scheduling too, with Oklahoma, Ole Miss, and Mississippi St all scheduled to play over the next 5-6 years.

And Miami has not won anything of significance since leaving the Orange Bowl.

 

0 ACC Titles. They are a Tropical Pitt at this point.

 

The Orange Bowl wasn't an OCS and it was a dump

Has to have capacity for announced attendance because the is a ticket sold = $...

we didn't have a single game this year less than 30k sales... why would we set 30k ceiling on sales when we have 4 games this year over 35k? 

 

I think 45k is a really good number. Another winning season and we will be averaging near 40k sales

Based on our Athletics Building, it would probably look more like this:

Exactly. In my eyes, it's the perfect stadium aesthetically for our campus.
