  1. With all of the talk and excitement (and, if you are a petty, salty little b*tch to the east, controversy) surrounding USF's future football scheduling, I think it is important to put the new scheduling philosophy into context given the realities of our lease/stadium situation. Our lease with the Tampa Sports Authority, which went into effect for the 2017 season and runs through the 2027 season (6 years with a 5 year option), states that USF will play at least 6 home games per season at Raymond James. USF only has to pay the direct cost of game day expenses. For games where just the lower bowl is open, that runs about $200,000 per game, and I would imagine that games with the upper deck open adds another $50,000 per deck in direct expenses ($300,000 max in direct expenses). For the first 6 games, USF gets to keep all of the money generated from ticket sales (minus the lesser of 8% of the ticket price or $2.50 per ticket). For a seventh game, USF would only get 20% of net revenues after all direct expenses and licensing fees are paid by TSA. So it would appear that there is even less of a financial incentive for USF to host 7 home games in a season. USF doesn't generate any revenue from concession sales or parking, other than the parking spaces they are allocated for donors. Average attendance in 2017 was 31,400, and 2018 climbed to 38,500. Included in these numbers are non-revenue seats (students and comps), so USF probably averaged around 28,000 in actual ticket sales over the last two seasons. Assuming an average ticket cost of around $32.50, USF would generate $910,000 per game in total revenue from ticket sales. From that, they pay TSA about $200,000 for use of the stadium, and another $70,000 or so for the ticket surcharge, leaving an average net revenue of $640,000. Then you have to factor in the cost of the guarantee for the FCS opponents. That runs around $400,000 to $500,000. If USF is paying that out, then they are clearing about $200,000 from those FCS home games. Typically, against a G5 or P5 program they pay out $250,000 to cover travel costs, so for those games the net is around $400,000. In an average 6 home game season, USF likely generates around $2.2 million TOTAL for the season in net revenues from ticket sales. Given the terms of the lease, it makes more sense for USF to take a road "pay-day-game" over a 6th or 7th home game against an FCS foe or a lower-tier P5 program. For instance, the Alabama game in 2026 will pay USF $1 million. After deducting the $250,000 in travel expenses, the program will still net around $750,000. USF couldn't clear that much money even if it sold out the entire lower bowl, which we aren't able to do right now against lesser competition. The $1.9 million we are getting paid by Texas for the 2020 game is even more significant. Without a hefty ticket price increase, it would be IMPOSSIBLE for us to net $1,650,000 from any home game. Subtracting 12,500 student seats from Raymond James' capacity of roughly 66,000, leaves only 53,500 revenue generating tickets. The most we could net in that situation would be $1,350,000 or so. Assuming a sell-out against Florida and Alabama, those games will net us almost $1,000,000 more per game than we have been averaging over the past two seasons. That is without consideration to the increased revenues received by requiring the purchase of mini-game plans or season tickets in order to secure tickets for those marquee games.
  2. Per VP of Athletics Michael Kelly during his interview on 95.3 WDAE this morning, the IPF has raised just north of $19 million in funding. Based on the initial announced required funding, that would put us just short of halfway funded.

  6. How do you compare Battle and McCloud in comparison to Flowers in the first year? Arm Strength? Mobility? Ability to extend plays? At this stage I think all three possess different measurables and immeasurable. If KB stays the newbies will have more weapons and a more dynamic offense l.

  11. It is depressing to see the lack of football news. Not really a big fan of chasing potential prospect or transfer news in a subsection. If you have anything related to football please post. It's ok to disagree with other posters, but your opinion is wanted on the state of the program and players.

  13. 04.25.19 A number of American Athletic Conference standouts are hearing their names called as the 2019 NFL Draft continues through Saturday in Nashville. The American enjoyed its best NFL Draft last season as 18 players from the conference were chosen by NFL teams. The league had 33 players chosen in the last two seasons prior to the 2019 draft. As expected, the first player from The American to be selected was Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver, the 2017 Outland Trophy as the nation's top interior lineman. Oliver was chosen by the Buffalo Bills with the No. 9 pick in the draft, becoming the highest pick from The American since former UCF quarterback Blake Bortles, who went No. 3 overall in 2014. Temple cornerback Rock Ya-Sin was the second player chosen in the second round and the first pick of the Indianapolis Colts. UCF defensive tackle Trysten Hill went later in the second round, going to the Dallas Cowboys with the 58th overall pick. All-America running back Darrell Henderson from Memphis was tabbed by the Los Angeles Rams in the third round, marking the third time in conference history (2014, 2017) that The American had four players among the top 70 selections. Fans can follow @American_FB on Twitter for live updates of The American's draft selections. American Athletic Conference Players Chosen in the 2019 NFL Draft Round Overall Player Pos School NFL Team 1 9 Ed Oliver DT Houston Buffalo 2 34 Rock Ya-Sin CB Temple Indianapolis 2 58 Trysten Hill DT UCF Dallas 3 70 Darrell Henderson RB Memphis Los Angeles Rams

  20. After watching the Spring Game, seeing immediate impact transfers, the Qb room, the talent of the recent young guys and recent recruits... I feel like this program has caught fire. I'm going to step out and say this... 11-2. Two losses will be a nail biter with one of the 3 p5 on the schedule and a bowl loss to a highly ranked p5 in the last 2 mins. I hope S. King is taking all the notes on Kerwin Bell...he will be here 1 year or 2 years tops. I think Bell is special and someone will pay him handsomely.
  21. Select your favorite(s) to have a breakout 2019. You may select more than one. If you select other, please state who and why. I did not add the OL, if you think an O-lineman worthy, please state so. Any color commentary is invited.
