And how exactly would an OCS change that?  We're still in the AAC, making AAC TV money.  I'll support it if they build it but don't see it being a game changer for USF football.  A recruit comes in and the coach tells him "Look at the shiny new bleachers you can be playing in front of.  Much different than the bleachers at every other college stadium.  Fans in them? Can't promise that but come to USF anyway."

I didn't say it would change that. I was replying to another post about the stadium being full in the past :P

What a complete waste of money.  Too bad they don't have an NFL stadium they can rent complete with red seats and a pirate ship ...cause everyone knows that's real college football.  Not some overpriced OCS.  Sheeesh

If this was a probability here, you'd already hear of our plans ......

The stadium's 23 luxury suites sold out quickly , along with the rest of the nearly 2,000-seat inventory of loge boxes and club seating.

Fort Collins is pretty ******* far from Denver, it would be like Mickey Mouse u playing their home games at Ray Jay.

 

Them building an OCS is more comparable to UCiFs need for an OCS in the old Citrus Bowl Days than it is to our own want for one as there aren't any viable options other than the stadium built in 1968 they were playing in.

 

Oh it also took them over 120 years of having football to build said OCS.

I believe that for the NFL but the college game doesn't seem to dwindle. It's just tougher to bring people to the stadium when you can watch the game in MEGA HIGH DEF in the comfort of your home. Actually ran an event with Sports Business radio yesterday at USF where they interviewed two CFP staff members and that was a big point they were working on. (It's also recorded onto a podcast and should be up on Monday!)

I think an OCS would be awesome. Give a home base to the team and keep everything in and around campus. However, with a perfect state of the art facility 20 minutes down the road it's hard to justify the department spending that money without any outside funding. Granted I have no idea what the budget is or how much it would cost out of pocket. Would just rather use that money on staff and coaches.

I become more and more convinced we are seeing the interest in football in this country continue to dwindle leading me to believe an OCS is not necessarily a wise investment.

We already have one. Just expand Corbett and we're good. Most are saying start small anyway :stirpot:
