USF came out last year as the second best team in the state (in virtually all polls, stats, and measurements). Beast is a tougher conference than ACC hands down. Of course, SEC is probably the toughest....FSU has had multiple down years in a row. UM wasn't looking good last year. Anyway, if USF beats some ranked opponents, comes in first or second in the BEAST, and if 3 - 4 teams are top 25 in our conference, and assuming we go to a bowl and end up top 25 for our season, will there truly be a Big 4 in the state of florida. Or do you feel that it will take years for us to prove that we belong with the Big 3, thus creating a big 4. If so, how many years will it take to show we were not a fluke last season? Obviously some joker will post "win the NC and we will prove it". We could be a decade away from that, or just a couple of seasons, hard to tell.On a related note, do you think UM and FSU will continue in the Big 3 / Big 4 of Florida, or do you see that tapering off? I for one feel that once bowden steps down, and since Tally does not have much to offer (compared to Tampa or Orlando) more kids will not go there over time. I don't see the attaction today, quite honestly. Miami has some great HS football programs and they can always continue to recruit local kids. but, being a private college and quite expensive, it is prohibitave for many to attend there. This could affect their future growth.So, I want people to weigh in on whether USF will become part of the Big 4, and if you see any programs declining in the next 5 years or so...
