The Bulluminati Podcast: The NFL Street USF Roster Swap Edition

We go through three USF seasons and implement the classic NFL Street “steal a player” concept.

Louisville v South Florida

The Bulluminati Podcast dives into some unusual and fun #content by asking the question on everyone’s mind: What happens if real life was like a video game?* More importantly, the NFL Street franchise.

If you missed Seth Varnadore’s piece on NCAA Street: Building the Ultimate Team, you should probably take a look before strapping in those ear buds and listening to this supplement; because we’re diving into three USF seasons to see what the rosters could look like if the winner of each game got to steal a player from the loser.

For this exercise, Nate, Seth, Steeg, Vito, and Senator Giggity took three USF seasons - 2007, 2016, and 2017 - and chose the players that USF would choose in wins, and who opponents would choose in losses. We stayed true to the records to keep consistency, but acknowledge that the roster attrition may contribute to results differently. Below you can see the full roster of TDS picks - some highly debated! (You’ll have to listen to the pod for that.)

*What, you don’t want life to be like Bendy and the Ink Machine?
