Funny piece by cheerleader Bianchi, that UCF upholds the fiction of a P6 and USF should too, but then he makes the claim they should be P5.  But if there's a P6 and you're in it, what are you talking about?  Goofy doublespeak never stops from the land of make believe.

it is about Revenue:

away - make $500-750k

home - make $2.5-3M

 

thats a $2M delta per game.   Do this 3 times and $6M of revenue loss out on and AAC teams cannot afford to lose that much.

It's always about revenue. USF stands to make a lot more from 50k in the stands in RJS in one game plus $750k pocketed for two away games with the gators as opposed to 15k in the stands for two home games against teams nobody wants to see.

Like you said: "We don’t get check for $45M from conference so we have to maximize on every dollar we can get".

That's a big part of their brand.

Yes, but to be fair, you have to deduct off the  250K that USF is paying UF to show up off of the 750K USF is getting paid to play.

Giving 12K away to uf fans is makig it oretty tough on the USF players. uf will buy all 12K, plus some USF sesaon ticket holders will demand a ransom for the best seats, and get it, assuring a ton of uf fans. 

It's not a deal I would make, but so be it. 

 But, the 2.5M buy out was VERY wise, well done IMO.

Per the TBT

The contract, released Tuesday morning by USF, calls for the Bulls to receive a total of $750,000 for its two trips to Gainesville. Accompanying that sum will be the virtual assurance of no fewer than 60,000 fans (and a nice profit) for its '23 home game against the Gators.

UF will receive $250,000 for its visit to Tampa. The per-game buyout is $2.5 million, according to the contract. Additionally, USF will receive 6,000 tickets to sell its fans for each of its trips to Gainesville; Florida gets 12,000 for the game in Tampa.
