It's hard to believe if you haven't been around for awhile, but on this date in 1997, the Bulls played their first-ever football game against Kentucky Wesleyan at the old Tampa Stadium. Maybe you've heard the story about the buses -- one of them didn't know how to get to the entrance and let everyone (including Jim Leavitt) off a half-mile from the stadium. Maybe you've heard the story about the kicking tee -- they didn't have one and someone had to race to the Sports Authority on Hillsborough Avenue to buy one at the last minute. Maybe you've seen the tape of Rafael Williams scoring the first touchdown, or any of about 100 other highlights from that night. Whether you've been with the team since the beginning, or you're one game in, it's always good to think back on this game and how, in the grand scheme of things, it wasn't that long ago that USF was a total football newbie. Now they're holding their own with programs that have 100-year head starts on them, and finding their way into the top 25 most seasons. It's a remarkable success story, and it may never happen this way for anyone else.
