Today I met an old married couple who were USF basketball donors years ago and had no idea we had a football program. They knew we renovated the sundome so it wasn’t like they were completely out of touch. This definitely tops the list of oblivious disrespectful comments about our football program throughout the years. Other notable mentions:

Guy on the Chicago boat tour who asked me if we were the school that had that great story about the player with one hand.

Co-worker who told me she was sorry about what happened to our quarterback on Black Friday.

And the countless people I’ve met who think we play in the FCS.

It was even worse this year because everyone and their mother knew we were 7-0 and then lost 5 straight. I hate small talk in general, but having to explain to a layman person the reasoning behind the downfall is completely pointless.

Nerds can be old people too...

As a fellow Bulls fan, I get your frustration, but understand that a big percentage of Americans don’t even know far more important, basic things about U.S. or world history, or their own form of government. But they can tell you who got kicked off Dancing with the Stars last week.

Instead of getting angry or indignant, educate them. Just explain that USF is a different school in a different town, and how our favorite play on offense is the halfback dive. 

Of course, it’s not lost on me that USF lacks notairty, even in the Tampa Bay Area. It is more comical to me than infuriating, but I found it odd that someone would give there money to an athletic department but not know it has a football team as well.

Ugh...this is why I can’t ever return to Fla...the senior citizen crowd...first it was their driving now they don’t know we have a FB team?

Not really that odd...if they have zero interest in football, or TBP.

They're still giving money now? And where does this couple live?
