USF Football is Dead. RIP 1997-2020


Recommended Posts

I'd say that USF Football never really lived. It merely existed and for a VERY short time was almost slightly relevant.

Other than that-- I have no idea why we think we deserve more than that after not having a team until 1997. We are so small time that we should just give up and put the money into basketball-- a sport we have the best chance of ever doing something worth noting.

Completely disagree. USF Football program absolutely lived. It was exciting, we were winning big games on the road. It was exciting and it felt like anything was possible...and we freaking owned UCF.

Maybe-- seems like our diehard fans still think of us as Big East - Power 5 BIG TIME Football school adjacent. That ship sailed so long ago -- right around when the power conferences decided they had a new way to exclude the pissants of the world. We are pissants though getting a USF fan to grasp that concept seems kind of difficult. "we''l be in the Big 12 before you know it"

yeah-- right.

There is a direct correlation with the rise of UCF and the death of USF. Why would any kid being recruited by both schools choose USF anymore? This program failed to capitalize on the early momentum.

I'd pound both... 

Well the first you can pound into next week, and the second you can pound into some lumpy kind of dough that should only be left out for wild animals to eat.
