Some interesting stats which show where we are against low, median, and high peer AAU universities.  Some glaring needs (e.g. Annual Giving) show how things have dropped since football hasn't been doing well.

Thanks for the link.


I wonder how USF would compare with the other universities, across the board, who are striving to become AAU members at some point.

I'm pretty certain that each one comes up short in various measurements.

USF seems to be above the "low" AAU membership in most respects.

Since AAU membership is by invitation only, it ends up being more of an old boys club.

I know they have pushed out a few schools in recent years. I believe Syracuse was one such case.

But, there are probably many others who should objectively get cut, based on their poor performance in many of the variables.

    "There is no inherent fear among this group of players. The fear of failing drove the program from day one - the fear of failing the coaches, the fan base, the university, each teammate, themselves. Now, as we head into the biggest game in our history at home on a national stage against the highest ranked team to step on OUR field, the players are taking an introspective look at themselves. Unfortunately, I don't know if they get it. They lack the fear."
