How high can USF go?
« on: October 21, 2017, 11:35:24 pm »

Ranked #16 in the last poll, won today and up to 7-0.  Likely in the top 15 in the next poll.

How high can they climb if they keep winning? Top 10 no doubt. They will likely get the top Group of 5 (non-Power 5) slot in the NY6 bowls if they keep winning. Can they be the first non-Power 5 school in the playoffs if they keep winning? (Doubtful unless they get some help.)

Charlie Strong has won at Louisville and proved he still has the magic. (Texas has a lot of outside-football politics that stifled him.) Someone else will snag him if we don't.

You must mean UCF who will be ranked higher than usf and best them on the same day and time as we lose to Missouri. If Arkansas administration was savvy and smart, which they are not, they'd be after UCF's coach Scott Frost and not Charlie Strong who somehow failed at UT where you could have won just as many games.

whats funny about that is our fans want Norvell from Memphis, who's team got drilled by Frosts team, yet not many of our fans even mention Frost.

That is not why they do not mention Frost, his offense is not "exciting" enough for them.

Why is it that you are so convinced it is Leach?

Frost can do better than Nebraska if he really wants to be a successful head coach at a P5 program.

Why do you think Strong is a good fit for Arkansas?

They think thats where he is going because he played there. Some guys realize though that going home is not always a good move,

I would take Frost over Norvell.  I would take just about anyone over Mike Leach.  If you think our recruiting is bad now just wait until Leach takes over.  We will be least talented team in the league by far.

Agree on all counts.

As far as the OP, USF could go undefeated but they are sloppy at times and almost puked up a huge lead to Tulane today. I think UCF beats them, but thats by far the toughest game they have left.

About s homeristic of a post as posts can get. I predicted as such in the preseason we would see this exact thing on here. Congrats on being the torch bearer for this campaign.

Charlie Strong very good coach but he's 57. I'm ready for young and hungry with something to prove. Win or lose Arkansas would definitely be Charlie Strong's last stop.

I did not write the post but I think Tennessee is probably the best job that will be open.  Tradition, facilities, 100K fans every game, recruiting area which is getting even better with all the migration to middle Tennessee and the East division is up for grabs with the possible exception of UGA.  Everyone else is mediocre at best.

Actually he is mentioned a lot, but many are saying he is going to Nebraska.  So others donít even bother putting him on their list.  Fans want wins. Many do not care how those wins come.

Not sure where the Tenner football tradition is compared to Nebraska, Nebraska has sold out every game since JFK was president and facilities are at least even (Nebraska for years has had the best weight program ever since Boyd Eppley got there years ago) recruiting area maybe a + for the Vols but for years Nebraska recruited Texas and Florida and the east coast successfully.  It is and always be the AD and who he selects as coach.  Nebraska got a AD who wanted Bill Callahan and that was a terrible fail  the Osborne brought in Pellini and they won games but he was such a jerk nobody could take it.  So they go the opposite direction and hire a .500 coach who is described by most as "the nicest guy you will ever meet"  and this is a disaster.  It all comes down to the AD finding the right HC.

Strong is not HC material.  Any coach with even mediocre talent should be able to at least average 9 wins at Texas.  Way too much talent within it's own borders to ever be subpar.  If you can't take a top 10 recruiting class and finish at least .500?  No, Thanks.

Well, as far as tough games, they have Houston this week and UCF in their season finale. The USF/UCF game should be a good one especially if both teams keep winning.
Even if USF goes undefeated, I don't think they'll be in the playoff. To get in a G5 team would have to knock off a highly rated P5 team (that remains highly rated throughout the season) and go undefeated.
They'll end up being top 10, maybe top 6. Then be the G5 representative in a New Year's bowl
