Southernmost state school at the time.

It's not uncommon to hear the Tampa area called SW Florida.

I have lived in the Tampa area for 37 years and have never heard Tampa referred to as SW Florida.

RE: On to South Florida
SW Florida is growing like mad

It is anchored by Fort Meyers, Port Charlotte and Naples
Florida Gulf Coast University is down there

The Tampa Bay are contains Tampa, St. Pete and Clearwater, and extends to Bradenton and Sarasota although Sarasota is a decent distance. It extends North and East as well but there are likely no towns most are familiar with

USF was indeed titled that as the southernmost state college at the time

We have never heard the region referred to as SW Florida but it is not a massive stretch simply looking at a map

I agree...It aint no guarantee...But if both teams play to their ability we should win by more than 10.

Lighten up dude.

And for the record, my dad grew up in actual South Florida before USF was a school. He lived in Miami until he was 40 before moving here.

He told me back then, referring to the Bay area as SW Florida was absolutely a thing. I will defer to him, makes sense why the school names itself that.

We know you were being silly

I only chose the directions I did because West Memphis is such a ludicrous way to describe how to get downtown.

And East of West is the name of my favorite graphic novel series.

The Big Ten loves the name University of South Florida. So does the Big 12.
