Good morning V5ers! We hope you are having a better morning than Jonathan Bornstein did Saturday night. On to the links!
1. The Sun Dome renovations finally started last week! This is definitely exciting news! There's a photo gallery of everything on GoUSFBulls.com! Check out the pile of chairs on the floor! And the giant Dumpster with a bunch of scrap metal in it! And the inside rooms smashed to smithereens! And the scoreboards already taken down! We're really excited!
2. The 5th Round of the SB Nation Conference Re-Draft is in the books. Fellow Big East programs West Virginia and Syracuse went off the board this round, along with two schools from the Pac-12 and SEC each. I think USF comes off the board here in the next round or two.
3. USF was represented well at the US Track & Field Championships this weekend in Eugene, Oregon. David Aristil finished 16th in the 400-meter hurdles. Marqueshia Stallworth came in third in the junior high jump, and Rachel Klingler finished 17th in the junior heptathlon. Congrats to all three for a great finish to the year.
4. The Bull Rush is counting down the top 10 moments of last year, and starts with a big moment in the Meineke Car Care Bowl against Clemson.
