We know Pitt's been good. Perhaps a history lesson?
You don't have to give me a history lesson; I probably know more about college football than you can ever hope to imagine.

Pitt has been very good the last few years and I will tell you they will compete very well in the Big East again this fall.

Yes there was a long time that Pitt wasn't very good, however there was a time that they were one of the top teams in the country too. Every hear of Dan Marino? Or how about Dorsett?

As for beating Pitt once.....congrats! Toledo beat Pitt last year. That doesn't mean that Toledo can beat Pitt on a consistent basis and it doesn't mean that USF can beat them on a consistent basis at this point. All I am saying is to give USF a couple of years, which it seems is kind of what you said. You just didn't like hearing it from an outsider is all.

I have no real problem with your latest statement. However, what you actually said was:

...gonna get killed... is a far cry from ...give USF a couple of years...

PS - I know quite a bit about Pitt football and their history. I also know that USF was the first team ever to beat Pitt at Heinz field. This was a bowl-bound Pitt team. That in no way denigrates Toledo's win over the Panthers last year, but please don't try to dismiss USF's win over them, either.

USF has been a top tier contender in CUSA and now that they are in the Big East they put together a very solid recruiting class. IMO they will make ALOT of noise over the next few years. I hope you guys come back and give the Bulls a pat on the back after they make the top 25 and builds some distance between themselves and you guys.

Nice to see you back on the boards RUmojo.

However, USF putting some distance between themselves and Toledo? We are ranked #25 in ESPN.com's early pre-season Top 25. We beat Pitt last year with a sophomore QB that was playing in his 4th career game. We have virtually everyone back on offense and almost all of our secondary and linebackers back on defense. Toledo is going to be very tough this fall.

rocketfootball, I am VERY glad to be back!!! I think Toledo will be tough but don't underestimate USF. They have a solid team and this years recruiting class was phenomal. They have a few guys that will contribute right away. IMO, if USF played the Rockets over the next few years the results would be ugly and in USF's favor.

I know Toledo has made a living beating people they aren't supposed to, but the Bulls are making serious strides. IMO, they will be serious contenders in the Big East from day 1.

Where to start... Since I was the first USF fan to even find this site, it's kind of hard to make the case that "we get it from you guys as much as you get it from us." You were just trying to rip USF and probably hoping that we wouldn't find the site to defend ourselves.

USFFan
Sorry but thats wrong. Ive been to other sites including other UCF and USF sites in which Bulls fans come on and talk smack about us - so it is a two way street. I was just shocked that you guys havent made it into this site yet. I knew sooner or later you guys would come out of the woodwork.

A potentially huge rivalry? May I direct you to the following link:

<a href='http://www.southfloridabulls.com/South%20Florida%20vs.%20Central%20Florida.htm' target='_blank'>http://www.southfloridabulls.com/South%20F...l%20Florida.htm</a>

There you will see that USF owns a significant advantage over UCF in all but one sport. Now, that link hasn't been updated in a couple of years, so it's worth pointing out that you no longer even have a winning record against USF in baseball. USF won 3 out of 5 from UCF in 2002 and 2 out of 3 from UCF in 2003, meaning that USF now leads the all-time series in baseball 44-43.

As for whether the athletics department's improvements will translate on the field, only time will tell. However, USF has been actively improving their own athletic facilities and I see no reason to believe that we won't continue to lead each of these series into the future.

USFFan
I am aware of that site, and we are aware of our disappointing record against you guys. But times are changing at UCF and things will definitely not be the same. The thing that gets many irrate is that UCF was pulling for USF to play them in football since day one and USF always declined until now. Despite this it doesnt mean that there isnt a heated rivalry between us two. If anything there is moreso. Its a well known fact that USF is the school that we like to hate most, and maybe part of that has been due to our overall record vs. USF, as well as geography and desire to build an instate rivalry as big as UF/FSU.

ok, usf did want to play ucf in football awhile ago, but you guys didn't want to because you were scared, and once you saw how good we were doing you wanted to play us, and begged us until we gave in and gave you guys a game. there have been times when we were in the top 25 in some polls. we finished i bullieve it was the 2001 season ranked in the top 25. (correct me if i am wrong usffan) we have always been underranked in the preseason. they don't give us credit for anything, but that will change once the season starts. no matter what strides ucf is making, usf will be ahead of them in sports by a long shot. the only thing you guys have that we don't is an on-campus stadium, but we do play in Raymond James Stadium, so we surpass you in that facet. we are building right now a 10,000 square foot athletic facility. ucf will never equal usf in sports. so stop hating on us, and get over it

Its well known that UCF wanted to play USF in their inaugural year of football, the fear factor was actually reversed, sorry to burst your bubble. The only reason why we are playing each other now is because it was brought up in the state house of representatives and much political meddling. By the way we play in the Citrus Bowl which will probably be going under major renovations since the Capital One Bowl could be the next BCS bowl. And if we did have an on-campus stadium it would be much better than playing in a municipal stadium such as the Citrus Bowl or RJS because the stadium is where college football should be played...on-campus! As for facilities we have a new baseball stadium, a new sports center, 10k arena on the way as well as an on-campus golf course. Whether or not we get an on-campus stadium is up in the air but many do want one, but I think much of it weighs on the Capital One Bowl's BCS standing. We also have the priciest football coaching staff in Florida with lucrative incentives. All of this due in part to the state's highest athletics fees which students pay every semester, much to the dismay of some students. Things are definitely changing and we will see the tide turn.
