CFN has us ranked 29th with a 7-2 record.  I hope the real voters think we have only lost 2 games.

The first computer ranking out is Sagarin.  He has us ranked 20th in his BCS ELO-CHESS column.

For USF ranking do not mean ****.  Inconsistant conference play, poor play decisions, and crappy playing in games to COUNT Isn't going to get USF ranked.

Until USF can prove itself that it will compete week in and week out in games that COUNT (read conference games),  then rankings do not need to be brought up. 

Whoopie **** we beat OOC teams, 1a and Div II teams and are  undefeated then drop conference games that we should just ABSOLUTELY DOMINATE.  Ranking be **** at this point of the season.

Even with a Miami win there is no way we sniff the top 25. We have created alot of doubters amongst the voters and the ESPN crews' commentary during the Rutgers game will stick with alot of people.

Beating Miami would get us votes... 8-3 record with wins over three Top 25 teams... winning out and USF is ranked again.

Chances of that happening? 50-50 at best. U Conn has a better team this year than two years ago when USF couldn't make it happen in Hartford...

And voters have VERY SHORT memories... it's all "what have you done lately"...

****, I guess I won't bring it up again then!  Rankings are still important as national perception for people (and voters) not familiar with our program (there I go again).  Geez, we got votes in the Harris poll last week after the beatdown and we were ranked 38 in the extended BCS rankings.  I think this week we could be in the low 30's and will definitely be in the top 25 BCS rankings with a win over Miami.  Chillax, message boards exist to discuss this kind of eternal optimism along with the negative.

Yes, the voters have VERY short memories.  I can't count how many times I saw a team get blown out, but was back in the polls a couple weeks later after a big win.

Voters won't remember the Rutgers game, if we beat Miami.

USF might be ranked after beating Miami, but will definitely "sniff" the top 25 (receive lots of votes) at 8-3.

Watch how many 3 (and 4) loss teams are in the polls or receiving votes today.

I just hope USF can find a way to jump into the final top 25 rankings.

Beating the 3rd highest ranked team in the 12 team ACC (BCS) conference will go a long way with the voters and the computers.

this is all that matters with rankings for USF this season; and it doesn't matter how it is accomplished.

USF received ONE vote in the Coaches' poll, which is exactly one more than Rutgers has. SWEET!  ;D

    "There is no inherent fear among this group of players. The fear of failing drove the program from day one - the fear of failing the coaches, the fan base, the university, each teammate, themselves. Now, as we head into the biggest game in our history at home on a national stage against the highest ranked team to step on OUR field, the players are taking an introspective look at themselves. Unfortunately, I don't know if they get it. They lack the fear."

    Terry Lucas, 09/26/22

    "For me, I never considered it that way (as a stepping stone), honestly. When I was offered the head job at South Florida, and I'm sincere about this, I never thought I would ever go anywhere."
