I'm going to save everything that is specific to USF football for another Bull-ogosphere later this week. Then the Bull-ogosphere will be replaced by the daily camp updates, followed by daily or near-daily posts during the season.
Anyway, on to the links.
Big East's Top 10 Storylines to Watch in Fall Practice | AthlonSports.com
Athlon's biggest storyline for the Big East is whether B.J. Daniels will have support at running back, with a brief mention of wide receivers.
Full disclosure: My Big East football poll ballot | USF Sports Bulletin | Tampa Bay Times
Greg Auman's ballot had USF second, behind Louisville.
My Big East Preseason Ballot - Big East Coast Bias
Mark Ennis's ballot also had Louisville on top, but the Bulls all the way down in fifth because of the two tough conference road games and the short turnaround between Nevada and Rutgers. (Thanks again, Big East!)
Ranking the Big East's Basketball Coaches | AthlonSports.com
There are a lot of good coaches in the Big East, but putting Stan Heath 14th out of 15 still seems low. Then again, Athlon had Rick Barnes in their top 30 nationally. I'm not even sure Rick Barnes is a top 30 coach in the Big XII.
USF Night With Rays Set for Saturday - GoUSFBulls.com
You can buy tickets from the Rays for either lower or upper reserved seats, and you get your choice of a dark blue or a white Rays/USF hat. This is going to be a big series against the Orioles, so even if you don't go to support USF, go to support the home team. (And can someone get me one of the white hats, please? Thank you.)
