  • TBP Ticker

Hi Guest,

In our efforts to raise funds for USF Football, the site is giving away a football season full of ad-free surfing at The Bulls Pen.

Would you consider buying a ticket or two to the raffle that will award this to you or a fellow member of the board?

Each ticket purchase goes directly to our effort to raise $10K in "fan money" for the program.  Below is the link:

Thank you,

Brad Brad

While your statement is basically accurate, if you can find a G5 in a market this size, with all the other major sports/entertainment options, with a higher percentage of those who care please enlighten us. Acting like this is some unique failure by the athletic dept is pretty much a joke. 

Don’t know exact numbers but Houston might

That actually may be a close one to compare situations to ....even though still think we have a larger uphill battle.

The funny part about his statement is the ones that do, are in the P5 because they have a greater level of support. Miami and TCU are the best examples of teams in those types of metropolitan areas who had the support and made the move to the P5. 

Any teams like Houston and Temple just don't have the P5 level of support and thus remain in the G5.

Was a little surprised to see Houston only drew 29K to see legendary Prairie View A&M...

So because all other things are pretty much equal with UM and TCU, we are where we are solely because of the failure of our athletic department ...

TCU from C-USA to MWC to Big12 in about 13 years....whatever it is we didn't/don't have it.

I wouldn't say solely but I think if there is any single group that can have the greatest impact on community involvement in a university's sports programs it's the athletic department.

Tradition...TCU has been playing football for 123 years and they have oil money. We’ve been playing 22 years and have auto insurance money.

TCU is a private institution with a boatload of cash that played in a big time conference for years (SWC) before we dreamed of a team.  Miami won 4 National Titles before we even fielded a team as well.  You can’t compare us to them, we are more comparable to FIU, Central Comm college, FAU, Georgia State etc.. which has us placed about where we should be.
