USF outdrew the Bucs this weekend

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers officially announced that 62,422 attended Sunday’s game between the Bucs and Panthers at Raymond James Stadium.

According to Stephen Holder of the St. Petersburg Times, the actual attendance was on 42,487.

42,487.  For an NFL game in a Florida city not named Jacksonville.

As Holder points out, the crowd falls well short of the 55,073 who showed up for South Florida’s Thursday night game against Cincinnati at the same venue.

The development compels the NFL and/or the Buccaneers to explain how the team is managing to avoid local blackouts.  At a minimum, the folks in Jacksonville could employ the same strategy.

  1. PFT SHOW SOME LOVE TO THE
    OAKLAND RAIDERS
    COME ON WHO CARES ABOUT USF OR THE BUCS??????????¨COME ON SHOW SOME LOVE
    OAKLAND RAIDERS

  2. Hey, I thought this was a PRO football site.
    Where is your negative slant on the Raiders? Can’t think of one today? Not ready to eat that crow?

  3. Glazers, are you happy with your decision to hire this useless debris running the show at One Buc Place. 10 games and counting. Fire Morris and hire someone who understands football. Morris is a joke. Your decisions have returned this team to the debacle known as the 1980’s. If you don’t care, sell the team.

  4. No one cares about the raiders. If a team loses to the raiders the only news is about the team that lost. No one cares about the raiders.

  5. Life teaches us that if you want quality then you HAVE to pay for it. Obviously the Glazers did not care anything about getting quality when they chose one of the cheapest ways to hire a guy to fill the HC position instead of going through the process in order to find one who was actually QUALIFIED to be a HC. He has 0 experience as a OC or DC to even have a clue what it takes to win.
    Your experiment failed MISERABLY!!!!!!!

  6. the Bulls are more exciting to watch than the Bucs, even when they lose.
    USF could probably beat tampa, the way both are playing right now.
