Guest BasketBull. Posted June 1, 2008 Share Posted June 1, 2008 I'm curious if there's another school that has a similar path to ours.Right now, we are not a weakling newbie, but at the same time we aren't a traditional powerhouse.The big boys (old guards) hate us: 1) The guy at Auburn didn't even vote for us after we beat his a$$ in his own stadium.2) The guy with the bag of money at 'Bama was taking shots at our players.3) Grandpa up at free shoe U hasn't exactly offered us lemonade in public. And we aren't ever going to get a game w/them as long as he's around.4) Even the former WVU coach was giving us $hit right before we beat his a$$ again -"We're like the Yankees..."I am willing to bet that some of the old guards saw the Sun Bowl score and felt pretty good about themselves, that they were right about USF and how we got "put in our place."So, where are we in terms of the traditional hierarchy of football? And who are our "friends"?Yes, there's the Big East, but that's just because we are in the same conference and they aren't exactly our friends.At the top of my head, I'm thinking Miami is our friend. If they didn't respect us, they wouldn't have signed the deal. And if they hated us, they'd never have agreed to such a deal.This upcoming season is critical. We need to kick some major a$$ and get out of the shadows of newbie land and turn into a national contender. Scheduling is going to be tough if we don't.
