And UCF fans are letting them know how they are degrading the conference with deals like that.

Degrading the conference?

As opposed to a home/home, I assume

And now USF is degrading the conference further with a 2/1 with Alabama. 2023 in Tampa. Tuscaloosa in '24 and '26

2/1 are simply a reality these days

degrading the conference is not taking the deals necessary to get at least some home games with P5

Yep.

Sun Belts, MACs, and almost all CUSAs can't even get 2 for 1's.

How is it that one state can have so many obnoxious fanbases (UCF, Miami, FSU, arguably Florida)

I have no problem with that. What some of these AAC ADs should do is a 2 for 1, but also make a 1 and 1 for basketball and even do a 1 and 1 weekend series in baseball tied into the football deal.

Arguably? Florida is the worst fan base in the nation.....no world (LSU is not in the this world)

Seems like Vanderbilt would have to do 2 for 1 to get good nonconf P5

Please. You can laugh all you want at Vanderbilt, they'll just sit there on top of their massive pile of SEC money and with their massive endowment and smile. You want Vandy SEC? Two for one. Pony up. (no pun intended, seeing as it's SMU)

And Vandy hasn't even deemphasized baseball! :jerry:
