    Join the $23 for 23 fundraising effort to benefit USF Football and the Indoor Practice Facility. This crowdfunding effort is open to all members and guests. Feel free to forward to your Bulls friends and family. Targeted donation per person is $23 per ticket or more. Those seeking to make a significant donation and wishing to receive the tax benefit may reach out to Brad in order to provide appropriate info to the USF Athletics program. This effort grew from E.T.'s post of April 7, 2019: E.T.'s vision was what if every season ticket holder donated $23 for our 23rd season of USF Football? This would be significant if we could start on this board and spread this to all season ticket holders. Perhaps even some non-season ticket holders would contribute and even purchase tickets! This effort is approved by USF and Brad will provide full reporting to board member and Athletics staff member John Lewis.

  4. Future hinges on hiring of new AD http://tbo.com/sports/colleges/usf-bulls/bulls-beat-future-hinges-on-hiring-of-new-ad-20140122/ Excerpt: "The new AD must have the creativity and vision to address USF’s needs for an on-campus football stadium. Anyone who attended the USF-UCF contest in November saw how much that added to the atmosphere. USF is fortunate to have Raymond James Stadium. But it isn’t a true home. The next game-changer is a 40,000-seat stadium that would invigorate the football program – and the campus."
  5. I have been trying to piece together the state of the program, as I am sure most of you have as well. My thinking is the time is now for USF and Woolard to announce an OCS. We can all agree this season has been a reboot. CWT has stuck to his guns and forced a regime change, and for that I respect him. Next year may be rough as well, as the last stains of the Holtz era are washing away. However, by 2015 we should be poised to be competitive once again, especially in the diluted AAC. So as CWT grows here at USF, I feel the university is poised to make a move to place a stadium on campus (where the Tennis courts are or east of Greek Village). I have a limited understanding of the Genshaft regime, but everything up to know seems to point in this direction. My time in Greek during undergrad allowed me to understand the Universities plan for Greek organizations, and it would seem to parallel all other facets of the Genshaft Regime. For Greeks, housing was to be designed in stages, or phases. Phase I saw the construction of the current Greek housing on the North-East side of Campus. However, this was to be temporary. Phase II would see the construction of improved Greek housing on a predisposed Greek Row located just north of Pizzo Elementary School on campus. There is even a long road and cul de sac located there in anticipation of the expansion. I’ve seen the blueprints, it would have been glorious (for Greeks). Now in this same line of thinking Genshaft recently announced Phase II of the Unstoppable Fundraising Campaign. (http://www.tampabay.com/news/education/college/usf-increases-fundraising-goal-to-1-billion/2152763). Phase I saw the University raise $630+ million. Only around $100 million of that was used for athletics. From that we saw the Sun Dome renovations, as well as improved facilities for all other varsity sports. This leaves football as the only sport which was essentially unaffected by Phase I money (save for the re-purposed old IM fields). Further, and more importantly, the renovations to athletics were done without using State money. If a similar proportion of Phase II money is given to Athletics then we could see between $150-250 million available for ______. In 2012, USF executed it's five year option with Raymond James Stadium to remain there through 2016. (http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/bulls/content/usf-extends-raymond-james-lease-through-2016) Raymond James clearly wished to lock USF **. This leaves USF without a home for 2017. Also the terms of the lease are not that demanding, as USF pays $150,000 a game, plus $2.50 a ticket to Tampa Sports Authority who manages Raymond James. USF also has to give a share of concessions up to $2,000,000/season to the Buccaneers. Should USF decide to terminate the lease early, it shouldn't be hard to offset the damages (provided USF Athletics has the Phase II money to play with). Now our athletic department has been operating in the green for years, but such management has come at a price. (http://www.wtsp.com/news/local/article/248640/8/Athletics-taxing-USF-students-heavily). However, rising tuition is not keeping new students from USF. This is evidenced by the fact that the USF systems total student population is north of 48,000. (http://usfweb3.usf.edu/infocenter/?silverheader=&report_category=STU&report_type=SMAJS&reportid=211193) Further, it is conceivable that such a high commitment straight from tuition may be a better model for a young athletic's department like USF. All sporting events are essentially free to those who wish to go. We are not the likes of FSU and UF where we have the luxury of being a storied program to point where students will pay large sums of money to secure game tickets. This approach has not cost USF and has kept Athletics solvent. This is more than can be said for the likes of Maryland, or even our friends to the East (http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-06-27/sports/os-ucf-athletics-increasing-cash-big-east-062712_1_ucfaa-ucf-athletics-association-conference-usa). I bring this up to show, (Woolard's faults aside) our Athletic Department is operating in the green and in a position to make make such a capital investment as an On-Campus-Stadium and bear the brunt of possibly breaking the RayJay lease early. From the horses mouth, just this past summer Woolard expressed optimism about an OCS. (http://tampa.cbslocal.com/2013/06/06/audio-justin-pawlowski-with-usf-ad-and-coach-willie-taggart/) This also was not the first time Woolard expressed interest in a 50,000 person facility at USF. In 2012, when the Sun Dome reopened Woolard mentioned how great it would be to have a 50,000 person OCS. (http://wusfnews.wusf.usf.edu/post/sun-dome-reopens-campus-football-stadium-usfs-future) I hate playing a psychologist, but he has said it twice. I would think then that he, Genshaft, and the board of trustees have just such a facility in mind. Also, for those of you that believe winning is a prerequisite to constructing an OCS, look to UCF and FAU. UCF went a combined 12-24 in the three seasons preceding Bright House Network Stadium. FAU went 6-6, 5-7, to 4-8 in the three seasons preceding the completion of FAU Stadium, and that team went on to go 1-11. Further, Minnesota, who many suggest USF needs to emulate in order to get competitive facilities, went 14-24 in the three years preceding their $300 million facility. We currently sit at 10-25 over the past three seasons. It has been miserable, but it is also a perfect time to make a move and improve USF's situation. Woolard also feels that he has a coach to build with in CWT. Is Woolard going to build with him. 45,000 to 50,000 seat OCS opening 2017. What do you all think?
  6. Wikipedia may not be the most accurate source. However, when trying to quickly find information about the university; Wikipedia seems to be very out of date (content, photos, sources, etc...). I personally took the liberty to update our academic rankings the moment US News & World Report released the 2012 figures. In conjunction, I fixed a few disconnected links. Another person went ahead and added new photos of the university to the main article. While it was a good effort, many of the photos have just been randomly placed. If you happen to come across Wikipedia pages about another school on the other side of I-4; you will notice that they went to great lengths to detail and document their school and achievements. So, I am just wondering: How does everyone on TBP feel about this? Waste of time, or an endeavor that we should correct? I do envy envy the big 3 (and even UCF) for their pride.

  8. I had the opportunity to attend the Mike Aresco/ESPN conference call on the new deal. I jotted down some unofficial notes I thought I'd share.. Aresco was very excited about the deal with ESPN. He said the agreement shows confidence ESPN has in conference. Together the plan is to be very innovative. A wide ranging agreement - content can appear nationally and on various ESPN platforms. On the new name of the conference - nothing new. Name to be disclosed in Spring. Aresco went on to say possibly April, early May. They are currently working with branding groups. There will be games scheduled on Thursdays and Fridays. They will be sensitive to H.S. football There was a question about the existing schools infighting over exit fees. Aresco said there had been none at all. It's a very cordial, straightforward and collegial group. Will the conference consider selling naming rights? Aresco vehemently said No. Not even thinking about it. On the 12th member - "We are looking at expansion" Intention is to get to 12. Expectation is to have championship game in 2015. Possibly in 2014, but unlikely. When ESPN was asked of what nights for television (basketball) the response was most nights of the week, but it was too early to tell. Where will conference basketball championship be played? Aresco says they're looking at a group of cities - the preference is to hold it in a city with a conference presence. They may rotate among site, not sure. Aresco like the Pac12 model - on campus sites. Aresco said top 3 priorities right now are 1) the name/rebranding 2) Venues 3) revenue ESPN can license out games to sub-licensees. ESPN said "excited about upside, can help in 'comprehensive exposure'." It was asked if Tulane could make it next season, Aresco commented they had other obligations. Further talk on a 2014 conference football championship if Navy joined earlier, but it has not been discussed. Pinstripe Bowl - still working on, hope they stay with new league. Who makes the call on what teams get on ESPN? The network and conference work together to determine best games for TV. What input does ESPN have in naming process? Aresco says the league will decide but may ask ESPN for opinion. "ESPN has never asked about a name." Is there a scheduling agreement (basketball) with the C7 schools? Aresco says "No agreement, but you'll see us play down the road."
