Question in Stewart Mandel's column with a question from a purported USF fan "self-reporting." 

I didn't link Mandel's response (he's in favor of playing the game) but the link is below.

I know you are very critical of fans whose opinion of their team out kick the team's accomplishments. I am here to self-report in hopes you will go easy on our school if you ever discover these infractions. I need your help in explaining to my fellow USF fans that an annual game with UCF is good for the program. Skip Holtz's hire has opened the debate since Jim Leavitt was adamantly against it.

This reeks of a UCF'er.

I saw this on USF Football's Twitter and wrote back that UCF talk is a trap. If we get involved, we're rivals. If we don't get involved, UCF gets to say whatever they want about us and the media usually goes along with them and doesn't question it.

What I've never understood is why they waste all that energy on us, instead of UF or FSU or Miami. If they want to be like us, shouldn't they be aiming higher? We certainly are.

The only thing that reeks of it not being authentic is that no one has named their kid Shamus in 100 years or so, right?

Not only that, but it is misspelled.  It should be Seamus if they are aiming for the original spelling.

Shouldn't this go under USF/ucf drivel?

    With the climate going on in NCAA athletics, you’re either moving forward at a hard pace or you’re not. I think what intrigued me the most is they’re very determined to become a big player nationally.

    We've talked about getting back to being the toughest, most violent people out there. Let's be the best version of ourselves and really get back to the culture of how we (USF) used to step across the line and play anybody. Let's hold on to the culture of when they were tough … and they (opponents) knew it was going to be long damn day for themselves.
