But I realize your definitions my differ. How do you define it? Regular appearances in Top 25 ranking? Sending players to NFL?Someone on here mentioned before how national press articles no longer treat USF as a novelty. Recent articles (for instance the one on Mike Jenkins in USA Today) talked about USF without reservation or qualification. No mentions of trailers, lighting the practice fields with car lights, etc.I travel quite a bit, and have had more people recognize USF branded clothes I wear.Based on my definition, I'd say that USF is in the "arriving process". We're certainly recognized as a legit force, but need to lockdown a conference championship or two and some major bowl wins to codify our place in mainstream FBS football.
