Hi Guest,

Just a note to point out our TBP-initiated drive to raise funds for the Bulls Football IPF - doing our share, and more.  Please consider donating at least $23 to the effort, and passing on to others as well.  You can read more about the project at the link above.

Thank you,

Now that we got a 2 for 1 against bama can we get a 2 for 1 with Michigan or Ohio state 

Two for one with Bama?  Its a home and home with Bama (2023 and 2024) and a one-shot game up at their place in 2026.

Kelly is building a schedule that could crack the playoffs if we win out.

Anybody still doubt that Mr. Kelly is "The Man".......I continue to expect big things from this guy (in addition to Scheduling).  As long as he sticks around, our Athletic Program is in for a fun ride!!

This works on so many levels.

First, it is good for our program. We don't make a lot of revenue from a typical home game, even against a bottom to middling P5 team such as Illinois or Syracuse. We will likely make almost as much money in one home game versus Bama or Florida than we would playing two against Syracuse and Illinois. You want to guarantee yourself a ticket to the game, you are going to have to pony up for season tickets or at least a 3 game plan. This will increase ticket sales across all the other games as well. 

Second, it undercuts UCF's argument that big name programs won't play them. When the team in the same conference as you are in 80 miles down the road is taking these deals, you can't say squat. Why would any major program consider a 1 for 1 with UCF if USF is willing to give them a 2 for 1. It really hurts UCF's scheduling philosophy. They NEED the home games to fund their program. We don't. It's as simple as that. Circumstances and context matter. If and when we do build an OCS, these types of deals will be much harder to come by and much harder to justify. So for all of those clamoring for an OCS realize that you don't necessarily get to have your cake and eat it too. 

Third, it generates local and national interest. If they aren't talking about you on ESPN, you are irrelevant. These types of games put us in the national spotlight and we will likely win a few of them. 

Fourth, it helps recruiting. Want to land a local player that's holding out for an SEC offer? Let him know he will get 4 or 5 games against SEC opponents while he is at USF. Have a player torn between UCF and USF? Ask him if he is amped for the road game at UNC or the ones in Miami, Tuscaloosa, and Gainesville. 

Finally, it creates excitement for the student body at the time of the games. The big game atmosphere at Ray Jay is electric. If you want the students to become lifelong Bulls football supporters you have to win them over in the 3 to 5 years that they are on campus or you've likely lost them for good. 

Great work VPoA Kelly!

Or one that will payoff the IPF if they buy out. :popcorn:

Another smart move by Kelly is that not only are Alabama, Florida and Miami blue blood P5 programs...well maybe not Miami anymore, they are all roadies that are easy drives.  This should enable us to have a strong attendance at some of these away games.

Go Bulls!

Purely speculation on my part but I think some of those national contacts that VPoA Kelly has may be getting put to good use.
