Worried the horrible basketball facilities and program along with fan support not being great are going to leave us in the worst fbs conference in the end

Think this is spot on – football wise with facilities we make sense, except for the fan support. That and non-football program/facilities will knock us down. However, if we can sell them on potential and they see the value in two Florida schools, guess there is a chance.

On the flip side all of the real competition leaves and weíre definitely †the big fish in the smallest of FBS ponds†

Nobody is going to care if we stomp the 7 dwarfs on Facebook or stadium.

Why don't they drive some stakes in the ground, stretch some flagging tape between them, pour some chalk lines in various places and for the next 10 years tell guests and recruits this is where the new auditorium will go. It worked for the football stadium.

Lol 7 dwarfs. Iím not saying this is the ideal scenario. Itís not. Ideally weíre called up to the AAC but letís be realistic. Are we really THAT attractive of a draw for what the AAC expects? I donít know. Which is why Iím saying we might have to get used to being the kings of C-USA

S. Fl market to be a pair w/ USF, S. Fl recruiting area, S. Fl media market to replace Orlando….. the usual positives. W are favored in some projections.

I am optimistic that our leadership are making the calls, Brian is speaking with AAC ADís and the Commissioner, President Kelly with AAC University Presidents and so on. There is a reason why we announced all these recent donations to Athletics, future renovations to the baseball facilities, the new locker rooms going up at burrow and others. We can sell the AAC on the potential we have. If we get in, our attendance will hopefully improve with better teams coming to town. All we can do now is to invite our family, friends to come out and have butts in the seats for the rest of what looks like a promising season. Letís all do our part and hope for an invite in the next few weeks. Go Owls 🦉 👌🏽!!!†

Great points, makes sense and seems to indicate they are doing what they can.

Written from a cusa point of view where we've combined for the last 4 football titles so I'm not surprised

My worry is our baseball and especially basketball facilities are garbage.   I've seen high school gyms better than our basketball arena.  

There has to be progress made to fix this and a one million dollar gift for baseball alone won't do that .   Fan support is another concern but facilities are the biggest thing that will be at fault if we are left behind with the leftovers

maybe we can work out some sort of deal where getting in is contingent on upgrading the non football facilities are within 5 years or so. idk just thinking outside the box. we can also keep the Shula Bowl annual for OUR body bag game 🤣🤣🤣
