I'm not sure if this has been brought up yet, but does anyone know if the field will be painted for us on Friday night?  The Bucs play at home on Sunday afternoon, and typically when we play on Saturday there isn't enough time to change the field over.  With us playing on Friday and the Bucs not on until 4pm Sunday does that enable them to paint the field for us?  It sure would be nice for such a high profile game.

If I remember correctly doesn’t there have to be something silly like 12 days between a Bulls and game and Bucs game to get it painted? At best we may get the white flag with our logo but no endzones. They could go Outback Bowl style and just paint Tampa Bay in the endzone but those would be in Buc colors.

wow-- this subject is the least important thing I can think of when it comes to USF football.

I don't really know your point MikeG.  Nothing close would really help the team perform.  But more lee-way to scheduling, closer for the students, and of course, ability to do what ever we want with the staidum, i.e. signs, field paint, and overall college appearence.  Non of those help a team's performance on the field.

I will spell it out for you:

I am not concerned about painting the field.

LOL.

think about it-- they paid good money to get those logos on the field for our first game-- now, do you really think they would do that only for UTM? no way. This was done for the UTM game becasue we can get two games worth of field painting out of it-- one a national broadcast.

true...i didnt even put it together that the bucs havent play at RayJay since our UTM game.  So chances are that the field is still painted for USF.

besides...as slow as the bucs defense looked against Reggie Bush i think they would benefit from a sloppy field.

ok here is how it works when we paint the field. The center and endzone grass is removed and new grass is placed and painted. Then after the game the original grass is placed in its original place. Now the question is will one full day be long enough for the grass to take root enough to play on. I say no but I know the TSA can roll the crap out of it and it should be fine. They do it for the Outback Bowl every year most years.
