P5 entry, how would it change USF Athletics?


Recommended Posts

We all want it, but what would it bring?

Yes, better scheduling is the obvious outcome. But are we going to see a dramatic change in terms of how things are now in terms of attendance numbers at home games for football?

Are more donors going to open up the coin purse?

For me, I want us in a P5 for recruiting and for better opponents for football games. But I've not thought about anything beyond that. Obviously, yes, I'd like to see USF get more money -P5 conference money.

But the biggest question should be this: will the Tampa Bay Area bandwagoners pack the stadium because we are a P5 program?

No, not because we're a P5 program, but because of the P5 programs we'd be playing against, i.e. see the Bucs versus Chicago, GB, etc. as somewhat analgous examples.

It would take many years before USF would be competitive on a consistent basis in a P5 conference  (more difficult than the BE days). Further, I could kiss good bye to going to away conference games (especially in the Big 12). But, still, you would be a fool not to want USF in a P5 conference. But I do wish there was someway the AAC could become a P6 as I really do like this conference and the teams that play it.

You've bought the lie. Hook, line, and sinker. 

It is a lie that USF would need quote "many years" to compete in p5. 

Did it take many years for USF to compete in BE. Our recruiting is on par with many so called power programs. Top of AAC is better than many power programs. Navy just destroyed Pitt. A team we were leading in 4th. 

You've been fed a media lie but the jokes on you because you bought it

USF could go in and compete in year 1 with 75% of power teams with our current talent base. Mack is one of the 10 best RBs in the country, power or not.

After seeing attendance numbers, tv contracts, and bowl performance this last season...

 

... The AAC is mediocre G5 at best.

How many fans do you think WV brought? And who made up the USF fans?

I guess, for me, I want us in a P5 because I want home games like this -filled with fans.

Oh you didn't know the '07 WVU team was "like the Yankees"
