If USF is left on the outside looking in, it will probably destroy my interest in College Football.

I'll take the positive press but it's hard for me to see how we are valued that high in MBB. Is it due to the previos Big East affiliation?

Feel the same but then again last few years i've only watched USF games anyways. Knew this crap would happen with the P5 shift... I hate it.

^ I'll always follow USF football, but obviously the interest will be greater (for me and I bet many other people too) if USF is competing with the upper echelon of college football.

Just want what's best for my alma mater. And a fair shake.

Hopefully that is on one of the first slides in our double secret presentation to them.

I am not sure I buy how UCF football is valued more than USF, further, I am surprised that we are ranked ahead of BYU in basketball, especially by that margin.

Forget BYU, I turned it off when I saw it put us over OU, OSU, and WVU MBB. Heck, even Cincy & Memphis should rationally be well over us in that list. I guess they factored heavily in favor of our potential there (before this recent debacle). But the football looks relatively believable. UCF is still riding some of it's own success in 2013 & 2014, so I can believe it ranks slightly higher in program value. Next year, their value probably drops significantly esp if they don't make a remarkable rebound.

Cincy: locked

Houston: a lot of talk & hot air backs them but do they really offer anything other than a spurt of decent football? [maybe all the hot air gets them in. Fine.] 80% for the first two selected.

Memphis: Nothing special, just fedex on their side. No way they get selected over Houston.

BYU: Good football, strong following, big athletics budget. But it's 2,000 miles from WVU. [No Sundays, partial membership? Too far from WVU. Too many complications.]

USF

ucf

Uconn: they will never have strong football. B12 already has good bball. It's 2,000 miles from the Texas schools. [Texas schools won't approve them. Too far. Weak football.]

Colorado State: nothing special. 1,500 miles from Morgantown, WV. [Too far for WVU, and will create another island.]

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Here's my prediction:

Scenario 1: Cincy & Houston, USF & ucf

Scenario 2: Cincy & Houston, Memphis & BYU (football only)

 

* No way do they go with either Florida school. Doesn't make sense to create an island. Both schools or none.

* The deciding factory, after the first two schools are selected, is the potential of the two Florida schools versus say a BYU and another school.

* I think the Florida schools win out. It doesn't make sense to ignore these two schools.
