Of course LU is a better academic school than USF. But were talking about a 18yr old kid. He sees USF on ESPN and TV all the time. Its his home state school. If academics was the basis for kids to pick schools, the Ivies would be the top conference in the land followed by the Patriot! Hundreds of kids turn down the Ivies to got to “below avg” colleges for football. I think LU is in BIG trouble and might lose this kid. Comparing the facilities, home state, fan base, TV exposure and LU doesnt compare.
