This is from an ESPN+ article, so I will not post the whole thing.  At least we made the list, how goes the OCS?  I'll hang up and listen.

Tier 2 jobs: Solid footing with finances, facilities and support; access to good regional recruiting areas; competes often for league championships, regularly makes bowls and occasionally challenges for the New Year's Six; some history of wins against the Power 5 (recent or long term); solid local or regional fan base.

South Florida: USF has Tier 1 job potential, especially when it builds an on-campus football facility that will feature an indoor practice facility. The lack of an on-campus stadium is a drawback, but Tampa is a strong area for recruiting, and the team won consistently under Jim Leavitt and had 21 combined wins in 2016 and 2017.

We have competed for a few. We just never win.

USF was Tier 1 when CJL was at the helm.  The lack of a CJL and OCS are a huge draw back, and we'll never Make USF Great Again without those two things.  If only the establishment would listen to Puc and LOB99.

Why does "we competed" sound so familiar?

Year we lost the shootout to UCF. We win and we are in the title game and we wax Memphis.  Wax. 

Year we lost back to back down the stretch to UCONN and WVU.  We had our destiny in our hands and shat the bed. 

Can't think of any others. 

So not a few, a couple. We "competed" though.

thats very small and would say more like we competed, to compete for a championship.
