@ChrisVannini: UCF fans won't like hearing this, but for all their complaints about 2-for-1s, USF has Alabama, Florida and Miami coming to town in the future. 

Yes, it's a little different w/ USF playing in an NFL stadium (many road team fans), but this is how you get those opportunities.

@budelliott3 UCF with its 1-1 demand is the dude with his house on Zillow for 1000 days no price drop thinking it'll sell any day now.

Best part is this tweet was met by derision or "only if our game is on campus:"by UCF fans. 

Delusional. 

@ChrisVannini: Honestly curious from UCF fans here, if Alabama offered a 2-for-1 with the Citrus Bowl, would you take it? Poll:

3-games to get whooped IMO

No doubt. Really it's more about trying to prove relative worth of program when the next round of conference alignment or playoff expansion happens.

For USF at least, moral victories would be in play.

Getting Bama to come to your yard is a big get on their part.  Between UF, Bama and Miami - if you can steal 2-3 wins between them, you won this IMO.

Definitely no down side here. I love the fact they’re aiming high.

Basically USF is taking the tactics that UCF should have. ( And UCF probably in better position to do)

Who knows where they will be in 4 years. Ucf just had an 0-fer a few seasons ago.

Art Briles has been hired by a North Texas high school.

They tried to news dump the announcement 2 hours before graduation ceremony at dinner time before holiday weekend.

That is completely insane. If my kid went to that school, I'd be really pissed.

I’ve heard the UCF attitude is consistent thru much of the Ath Dept...now it’s hurting momentum vs their biggest rival (not UF).

@MikeLeslieWFAA: Mount Vernon ISD Supt Jason McCullough says that they “vetted coach [Art] Briles to the best of our ability.”

Did that vetting include talking with any of the victims?

No.

Any one from the NCAA?

No, other than fmr Baylor coach Grant Teaff.

Then what vetting did you do? https://twitter.com/MikeLeslieWFAA/status/1133449146969546752/video/1

Herm Edwards brought Marvin Lewis on board at ASU. I'm thinking this is just their way of retiring in Scottsdale.

I will say the ability to purchase beer in Autzen is an awesome addition.  Used to have run into the indoor practice center and had to finish them inside there before dashing back to your seats.   Now, they treat us like grown-ups and it's quite nice!

I sit at the very top section of Tiger Stadium.  They sell beer and wine and give you free food.  It's a fairly new development and I go to more games now because of it.  They have been expanding alcohol sales ever since, and I think it's just a matter of time before they just sell it everywhere.   If they want people to come and stay, let them get drunk.

Buddy and I were talking about the top college stadiums we'd like to visit before we're ashes.  I put Tiger Stadium at the top of my list.  Biggest regret of my life was not going to a game there when I was in Jackson.  Plenty of fraternity brothers with LSU ties.  Big miss on my part.  

Have gone to a Saints/Cowboys game though.  That was awesome!

If I'm going to an SEC game, it's either LSU or Alabama.

I think Georgia would be fun too.  And Auburn.  Always wonder what my life would have been like if I went to Auburn.  I thought about it long and hard, but when I visited, I didn't love it.

Georgia is great, Tennessee is great even Florida is great. Doubt you could find one that sucked. 

Think I enjoyed Tennessee the most.

Were you tailgating/partying by the river? That would probably make the experience for me. Hearing endless repetition of Rocky Top probably wouldn't. :loco:
