Here's the schedule. The only thing I don't like is the bye being week 3. We have a few tough games but nothing that can't be overcome. We've got a lot of returning starters and after last year's bowl victory we are on the nation's radar. Is it possible that we end up in the top 25 this year?

Sat, Sept 1: Elon
Sat., Sept 8: @ Auburn - (TBD, ESPN/ESPN2)
Sat, Sept 15: bye
Sat, Sept 22: North Carolina
Fri, Sept 28: WEST VIRGINIA - (8:00 p.m., ESPN2)
Sat, Oct 6: @ Florida Atlantic
Sat, Oct 13: Central Florida
Thurs, Oct 18: @ RUTGERS - (7:30 p.m., ESPN)
Sat, Oct 27: @ CONNECTICUT
Sat, Nov 3: CINCINNATI
Sat, Nov 10: @ SYRACUSE
Sat, Nov 17: LOUISVILLE
Sat, Nov 24: @ PITTSBURGH

From 12 Pro Bowlers to 0-We got hosed alright

Do you mean ranked at the end of the season or just any time during the season? They would be Top 25 if they beat Auburn next week ...... which I don't think they'll do.
Their toughest conf games are at home so even losing to Auburn, there's still a possibility they could run the table and that would definitely put them in the Top 15, if the other teams are having good seasons...

Speaking of USF, reminder that the Bulls game tonight is on TV...7 pm, Channel 47 (Brighthouse).

USF could beat Michigan, and would be ranked if they played in the crummy Big 10

Mike Ford should help get us into the top 25.

Kansas State isn't USF.

From the looks of yesterday, KSU may be better than USF, so you are right.

USF starts off slow yearly, look at last year against the Cowboys, we didn't pile it on until the third quarter when Grothe came in.

I'll be surprised if USF stays within 14 points of Auburn.  I'm no SEC homer, not by far, but I just think Auburn's D is going to eat USF alive.  I'm calling something like 27-7.  Unless USF gets a special teams or defensive scores, I don't think the offense can put up more than a score or 2.

What makes you think Auburn's offense will put up 27 points?

TO's and good field position from a stifling defense with size and speed USF has never seen?

They just said on ESPN that Augurn should watch out for USF this week. I like our chances.
