    USF Moves up to #124 in Latest US News College Rankings!

    Great to see! Florida schools have really climbed a lot over the last 5 years; uf, FSU and USF have all made large jumps. It’s great the state is investing in its universities. The preeminent funding for USF should ensure it stays on the rise!

    New USF Academic Logo

    Agree. The old logo was just fine for academic. Similar in design to what uf has, though uf's font has a bit of a stronger appearance with the straight seriffs. The new font is laughable. If anything, they should've done some type of shield with a bull and a strong looking USF font.

    Early betting line USF vs Illinois

    Too bad it was a mistake. I would've literally bet my house on USF +9.5 Lovie is going to be verrrrry disappointed.

    New USF Academic Logo

    Looks like some clip art. Not very professional for an academic logo.

    OCS Profitable for CSU

    USF should get a refund on that study put together for its OCS. I'm an FSU alum, but have always kept tabs on USF being from Tampa, and now going to USF for grad school... so this is a bit of an outsider's perspective of someone now rooting for USF. No one goes to college football games for seat backs, cup holders, large jumbotrons, or whatever other luxuries Ray Jay offers. Do you know how many games I would go back up to Tallahassee for if FSU had a um type arrangement? Many fewer than I do now. Doak Campbell isn't nearly as nice, feature rich, comfortable, etc as Raymond James or Seminole Hard Rock Stadium -- and yet it couldn't be more perfect. When I go back up for FSU games, it feels like I'm back home. There's no better way to connect with your alma mater than returning to your campus, hitting up old favorite spots around campus, tailgating, and then going to the game at a stadium you used to walk to from your dorm room. When you go to a football game at Ray Jay, what connection is there to the University other than the logo on the helmet? This is what separates the college football experience from the pros. Going to a college football game is about much more than the football game. Also, you need to get students to go to games in the first place so they'll have that burning desire to come back. I got an email from USF last week -- average student attendance was 4,000 last year... and it seemed like they were bragging about this! For the best team in USF history and a team contending for a conference championship and NY6 bowl game. This number instantly doubles with even a UCF quality OCS (sorry -- fighting words I know).The problem described above is exacerbated when alumni never even went to games as students.
