Good morning V5ers! We hope you guys are having a better morning than everyone in Chapel Hill. Just remember everyone -- #RonP4UNC. On to the links!
1. Congrats to former USF LB Stephen Nicholas, who just re-signed with the Atlanta Falcons for five years and $17.5 million. Although it would have been nice for him to play in Tampa again, it's great to see a team reward Snake with that kind of money.
3. Adam Adkins has some news on Courtney Williams, who just gave a verbal pledge to Coach Jose Fernandez and the women's basketball team. Whenever you can beat out schools like Maryland, Georgetown, and Washington, you grabbed a great prospect.
4. If you guys forgot, the annual USF Preseason Tailgate is this Saturday at Capogna's from 4-8 PM. Coach Holtz should be there, and the guys at Bulls Outfitters will be on hand as well. Admission is free.
5. The USF Football Kickoff Dinner will be on Monday, August 22 at the A La Carte Pavilion. Don't know how they got Lou Holtz to do the event. Someone on the coaching staff must have a lot of sway. You can find more information here.
