Hopefully he knows something we don't ...

 

I hope so too.  With a high-profile new coach, a possible Heisman candidate, explosive offense and an easy schedule, you'd think that would attract some "football" fans who normally might not follow USF football.  Our lack of quality home opponents is a pretty big negative though.

Need Tampa Bay to start loving its Bulls with their pocketbooks. 

With how weird the Tampa sports fan is I think the National Media talking about us is what will bring them out. They will see it as, "everyone is talking about them and I don't want to get left out". That gets them in the door and the product on the field can do the  rest. Honestly the National Media coverage is probably better for getting the average Tampa fan out than most of what we do in the marketing department. 

Hope it keeps up through the off season even if with each article like this one makes me wish football season wasn't so far away.

Can't be any more negative than some of our "fans" and their excuses for not going to the games or financially supporting their alma mater. :popcorn:

Pretty cool that Bama is on campus practicing...   Hope the curse gets them

I'll have to cruise over there and get as close as I can when they're out .... have to think I bear some ancillary attachment of the Curse, to pile on them, after all these years immersed in hoops.

Not that I have any love for Clemson & the ACC, but I would love to see mighty Bama take a fall. Maybe we should consult a shaman on this to get the greatest benefit?

Hate to see the board reaction, and all the articles written should Strong only win 7 or 8 games next year.  He's being expected to win 12 games next year, almost required to win.

If the Curse has any sense at all, it will see the huge opportunity to attach itself to the highest profile college team to come within its grasp probably ever ...

Well, if things don't work out at USF he can always fall back on a career as a personal GPS.

Let's get the shaman currently in charge of the IBG under the Sun Dome to start working his hexes on Bama for a change, and leave us the hell alone.

I thought the same thing when Strong was hired. With our week schedule, the expectation will be to go undefeated. But we know they are going to lose a game or 2 somewhere.

But it he loses 3 or 4 games....it would be the same as it was in 2008 and 2009 and when things didn't go as what was hoped for.

Just to point out our average Home Attendance did JUMP up quite a bit this season. Notice the numbers for the AAC era.

2016: 37,538 If you take out FSU and replace with lowest attended game (UConn) it would still be an average of 33,057

2015: 26,578

2014: 30,694

2013: 34,701
