  1. I'll take pre-eminent status and top research school and revenues over athletic success any day of the year.

  2. I’ll say it again - clearly USF made missteps with athletics, but putting its focus and resources into raising the school’s academic profile over the past two decades was not the wrong move. There’s a reason USF now ranks among the top 50 public universities. Oh, boy, Matt Baker.

  3. USF needs to make its own destiny instead of worrying about UCF. When I lived in Otown I used to tell my UCF alum friends the same thing whenever they beached about USF being in the Big East and not playing them. Apparently UCF took that advice to heart and it worked for them.

  4. So...what's today's beef? That a Super Bowl Champ who made positive comments about our school to the media is bad because he hasn't made enough positive comments about USF for some people? If you tally up the entire list of NFL players who have EVER said something positive about USF, even JPP could count it on one hand.

  7. The money is one thing and the gap has risen considerably for the P5 v. everyone else, but we’ve never been part of the haves. We’ve always been part of the have nots. At out highest, we were still in the 6th best conference and there was a money gap. We can complain all we want about how the P5’s are kicking our ass, but we should be more concerned with how the teams in the conferences below us with even less money than we have are making more noise than we are. We can’t whine about Iowa State having an unfair advantage and ignore that Coastal Carolina and LA Lafayette would eat our lunch. It

  8. That is a load of BS, I will let you in on a secret, the climate has always changed and always will. Our efforts to change this are futile and wasteful and a ploy to redistribute income and secure power, nothing more and nothing less.

  13. It's a difficult life you're living to be that pessimistic 24/7/365, puc. On a day when the athletic department is making an important announcement that we've been waiting to hear for several years, this is what you've got? You must be a blast at parties.

  16. I don't want to sound "more important" than anyone. I have a VERY dear friend of mine, who I've known for 10+ years, who works inside of USF Athletics He has said, that part of Jeff Scott's demands to come here, was to have an indoor practice facility built He said that the estimated cost was about 20 million, and they have 90% of that money secured Shovels in the dirt, around or just after spring break. He said the location will be behind the athletics building (see attached) I don't want to give this person's name out, but I 1000000000000000000% would gamble my house

  17. 100%...if it was not for USF I would not have received any of the professional opportunities that I have had. Will always be indebted to my alma mater. But can I please get an IPF, a conference championship, and a NYD bowl win before I leave this place?

  18. I am getting older, I am getting selfish...I have already cashed in on my USF degree so those still waiting or in the process that’s to F’n bad. Put the money into the football program so I can enjoy something that has value and I can enjoy.

  31. The ground breaking shovel feasibility studies aren’t complete. After the best shovel type is determined, there will be a study to determine the best color gold paint to use, and then a study to determine the most durable paint. After those studies are complete, studies will be done to determine the best source to purchase the shovels, and paint from. Once they are delivered, a committee will be formed to determine the best date to hold the ground breaking ceremony. A study will then be done to determine the need to wear masks during the ceremony, and wether the donors will be permitted to

  34. Regardless of all this, the point stands. USF - for a school of its age - has made big and steady strides in its academic reputation. It’s not the same university I graduated from in 1988. The same can’t be said for athletics. I think we can all agree on these points. Where we seem to be at odds is whether one holds more importance than the other for us right now. We’d love to have both - and we should be able to - but if forced to choose at this point, I’ll take the academic progress. I’ve shown that by making a 5-figure commitment on the academic side. When that commitment is fulfilled, I’ll

  36. Ricky - There are also several other "juvenile delinquent" names for the cities in the broader area that I've heard over the years. These come to mind: Trampa QueerWater Scarasota Whorelando Flakeland They kind of all just roll of the toungue, don't you think? Now I don't officially approve of any of these names personally. You know, because I am so mature for my age!

  37. I appreciate John Lewis for all he does and coming here and informing us on updates from Athletics. I do get critical of USF Athletics and its history, I do wish for them to move faster but I also appreciate the work of many in there that work hard and do their best. I am critical but have always been a supporter and will continue to support them.

  38. I apologize I hadn't responded sooner. I cannot divulge anything specific on the timeline, but I wouldn't have said yes if I wasn't confident in saying it. We have continued to fundraise pretty well during the pandemic and I do thank those on this board who have provided gifts toward the project. Stay tuned!!

  39. To play devil's advocate, Lol no way in hell USF is ever going to be recognized in every day conversation outside of Tampa for its "academic status." I'm sorry, I'm even an education graduate but its the reality. No one will look at your resume and say, "holy crap you went to USF?? Thats such an amazing academic school!" But they might say, "oh you went to that school that had those couple of undefeated seasons and claims a national title?" I'm sorry but its the truth. Even if we pass FSU in academic standards no one will care, FSU is always going to be more "recognizable" than USF

  40. I’ve given what I can to the IPF fund....twice, which is probably more than 99.9999996% of the alumni/fan base. And I also buy over priced club access tickets in a rented stadium to watch a putrid product. I contribute plenty of $$ to this University. I love college football and I love USF and I don’t feel like this University has ever committed to building a winning program. The commitment by the University to successful athletics at USF feels like they game day experience at Ray Jay...half assed. Of course, this is just one man’s opinion.

  41. I guess I’ll be the shallow superficial guy. I’d gladly trade pre-eminent status for athletic success, ie Multiple conference championships in football, an undefeated season, multiple NY6 bowl games, ESPN Game Day on campus, an IPF/football center and an OCS. Sign me up.

  42. True. I think we got spoiled by having early success on a shoestring budget. They got lulled into thinking that was sustainable. Still, as much as we want to pile on Judy for athletics, she was a true hero when it came to driving forward the university’s actual mission.

  47. I understand with the current economic and pandemic situation moving forward on this will be hard, but here is a fact, IF USF really wants to compete and move up, then it must step up its support of the program. I have said this many times, many like to complain on this board about were we are as a program but there are some cold facts that we aren’t being competitive with others in the AAC in supporting it. from the IPF to fan support at games, from donations to the program we aren’t even in the middle of the AAC. Time for all to step up or shut the hell up. I’m old and have su
