WV Mount-On-Queers feel this game is bigger then any game in the Big East. So who the pressure the most? Not USF. The Queers got revenge on the brains. Plus they don't won't to lose out of the BCS bowl bid again. The pressures on WVU tonight. Slaton has not had success the pass two season against USF. Pat White will have to beat us throwing. And Mr. Devine will be surprise of the speed he will be facing. So let's see if they can handle the pressure tonight. Over six and a half hours to show time. Go Bulls!!!!

Mike Bianchi err Chris. Seriously there is a problem at these major universities, with kids getting in trouble. But USF has done well with there kids this year. One kid had unpaid parking tickets. That was the reason he got arrested. I think we had 4-5 kids suspended last season. And all those kids got kicked off the team. So kudos to Jim Leavitt for not allowing this to go on at USF. As far as a OCS. USF is not in a big rush to get a stadium built. We have the other athletic facilities to take care of first. Plans for an Athletics District are in development and its completion will provide USF student-athletes across-the-board with some of the top facilities in the nation. And theres talk of breaking ground on a 55,000+ stadium in a few years. And yes we do have the land for it. So RayJay will be find for now. It don't hurt recruiting at all. Yes with some of the Bucs logo around the stadium, recruits tend to fall in love with it.
That's nice that you are sticking up for the jailbirds over at USF. I don't need to come after you my friend, I don't even know you, I am basing my opinions off of what I know to be true.
By the way, they also lead all other NCAA Football programs with iligitimate Children, the last number I heard was 19.
Where will USF place a 55,000 seat stadium on their campus, the answer is, nowhere, they have no room. Currently USF pays $115,000 per game to rent the stadium, and another $75,000 for parking previliges per game. The money goes directly to the Glazers. USF has never made a dime off of the stadium or concessions. Meanwhile UCF is raking in over $1 million per game with their new stadium. Money that goes directly back into the school and to the Football program. Do the math, it is a better advantage to have your own on campus stadium than to rent, just as in real life.

"WV Mount-On-Queers"
- GOOD ONE, real 1st grade ish but I admire the thought level

"this game is bigger then any game in the Big East"
-No Actually that would be the game against 10th ranked Rutgers but its the biggest for USF

"Pat White will have to beat us throwing"
-Statistically Pat White has had his best rushing games against USF. But he can air it out as well

"And Mr. Devine will be surprise of the speed he will be facing"
- I think that will be the other way around

"who the pressure the most? Not USF"
-Pressure is on both my man

Talk is cheap. I love talking football if you want to act mature enough to do so.

Do you see the picture to the left. That was takin last year at the UCF game. That picture says it all about UCF guys. Chris are you in that picture? As for you basing your opinions off of what you know to be true. We need facts, not a typical delusional UCF fans opinion. Facts my friend. My facts are in that picture.

Pat White has had his best rushing GAMES against USF. You need to get get off that hillbilly kool- aid.(moon shine) Mr. White had 1 good game against USF. And that was 2 big runs. Last year he was beating up by USF defense. Rushing 15 times for 17 yards. Yeh that was a huge game for Mr. White. Get off the shine Billi.

Conferences do not look at adding a University based on Football alone. The ACC would need a large market school (UCF), with a competitive football team, competitive basketball (new 10,000 seat arean), baseball team with tradition (see Jay Bergman). Successful woman's program (Volleyball, Soccer, Rowing, Softball...all top-notch programs), oh and by the way, some of the highest rated student-athletes in the nation, but then again, I guess that wouldn't be attractive to the ACC.
Once again, you're looking at the world through those black-and-gold glasses. UCF is a Tier-4 school. You don't think that other candidate schools could boast better figures than UCF? You're acting like schools such as West Virginia, Syracuse, etc are glorified community colleges, while UCF is some Ivy League school. If academics and market size were the primary factors in picking new schools, then Rutgers, Temple, and Navy probably would have been the ACC's first choices.

You guys really need to wake up. You are NOT going to get invited to the ACC. For your fans to go around acting like you're too good for the Big East just shows how little class you really have. You haven't done one damned thing to prove yourself athletically. How many bowl games has UCF won? How many Top 25 teams has UCF beaten? How many games has UCF won in the March Madness tournament? You guys were in a pathetic basketball conference for years, and only managed a couple of titles. Please - don't pretend that you are ready for the ACC simply because you have a new stadium and arena, and some smart students.

Liar!!!! There ARE NO PLANS AT ALL for usf to have an OCS. Quotes abound for weeks about how they have no plans for one--From coach to AD to admin staff. They have a TERRIBLE deal with the Bucs and should be ashamed. Look at other school that share home, like PITT and the Steelers. There are PIT logos all over the stadium, every other row alternates steeler logos and panther logos. AND he steelers wait until PITs season is over to pt any logos on the field That is why the endzone has an old school hash-marked look.

Tier 3, Tier 4 - neither one is something to be proud of, and neither one is going to get you into the ACC. If you are Tier 3, then it must be borderline - I remember UCF being a 'Tier 3' school a few years ago, only to fall back into Tier 4 the next year.
