Unofficial USF Athletic Director Hiring Process Flowchart

Adflowchart

This is what USF's hiring process for the open athletic director position would look like if a lot of people around Tampa had their way. We don't want to put all our eggs in one basket here... but that sure is a nice basket to put them in.

Former FSU dynasty era WR Ron Dugans hired as WR coach at USF

After spending the last 4 years in the same position at Louisville. Seems like a very solid pickup.

Erin Fairs AAC Player of The Year, Andrea Rodriguez-Gomez First Team All-AAC

Our totally being in the tank for USF Volleyball is so cool sometimes, and today is one of those days we love. Sophomore Erin Fairs was named AAC Player of The Year today, the first conference MVP for the Bulls since Michelle Collier in 2002. Fairs came on our radio show earlier this season and talked about wanting to win this award, and her incredible improvement from freshman to sophomore year was rewarded with the nod. What separated her from the competition is the ability to be so effective in all six rotations, averaging a ridiculous-for-an-outside-hitter 4.41 digs per set as well as 3.73 kills. Did we mention she's just a sophomore?? Are you kidding?? Her ceiling is to be one of the best players in USF history, and it'll be fun to watch her climb the lists. Also a big congrats to Andrea Rodriguez-Gomez, who caps off her career with a First Team All-AAC nod. 'Dre was one of our favorite kids ever, and her smile is so bright the university put it on a billboard. The story of her family's journey to America after being political refugees from Chavez's Venezuela is amazing, and they should be incredibly proud of her both on and off the floor. She leaves USF after averaging 1.53 blocks per set and hitting .294 her senior year. Dre's engaged and moving back to Miami, and we'll miss her general goofy-ditziness in The Corral. She was the rare kid that could light up a room and a scoreboard, and it's been so much fun to watch her grow. She was also the only senior on this USF team, one that inked five kids on early signing day. The future looks bright for a team should be picked at or near the top of the league in 2014.

Hey USF, Let's Start Keeping Our Promises To Season Ticket Holders, Shall We?

Dvrgzqxiswbibln.20130308012958

This isn't a big deal, but it's also kind of a very big deal. You can see on this web page that's still on GoUSFBulls.com all the promises made to season ticket holders that renewed by May 1st. They are as follows: 15% discount at the Team Store (fulfilled) 15% off at The Claw (fulfilled) Complimentary video board message (haven't heard anything about this yet, but there's still time) Raymond James Stadium concession gift card discounts (unfulfilled as of four days before the first game) Complimentary trial of Bullscast (unfulfilled, and we've already had soccer games) Invite to season ticket holder party (fulfilled) Now we're going to assume that these were things dreamed up by Bill McGillis in a marketing meeting, but even though he's not here anymore, that doesn't mean these promises can go unkept. There's enough of a trust issue between the institution and the fan base presently, and failing the exact people that are the most loyal to the program through thick and thin (those that renewed EARLY after the epic fail that was last season) is completely unacceptable. Also I've had that Ray Jay concession scrip before. That's gold, Jerry, pure gold because when you're paying $7-10 for a beer, every little bit helps. There's still time to fix this, but our sources tell us that no one has any idea about any of this stuff internally presently. Let's get on this, hmm kay? Notice this is a Fan Shot and not a 1000 word diatribe on another broken promise by the Selmon Building. There's new leadership and new people at USF Athletics, and we're trying to give them every opportunity to succeed here. But unfortunately they are still accountable for the institutional promises made by those before them. And if they can't be fulfilled for whatever reason, then they need to alternatively do something to make it right. Or at least, #DoSomething

Julius Forte on the 3:00am wakeup call

"You’re just hitting that good sleep where you’re dozing off and having good dreams. You might have Halle Berry or somebody knocking at your door but when you see coach (Marquel) Blackwell at the door you’re like, ‘Hey, you’re not Halle Berry!' "

Defensive end JuJu Forte, reminding us all that the fantasy is usually better than the reality.

Coach Taggart at American Athletic Media Day

Coach Taggart: "But we're a program that really hadn't lived up to our potential. But it's on us. And a big reason why I'm the head coach there now is to try to get our guys to live up to the potential. But it's not just us, our players. It's going to be coaches and everyone else that's involved with it. But I do think we can be one of those teams. Are we there yet? No, we're not. But we can get there."

New Logo Unveiled For The American

Once we have photos available to us, we'll do a proper post, but this link will have to do. I don't have a strong positive or negative reaction to the logo. It's kind of clip art-y, but this could have gone a lot worse. I'm a bit confused about why the star is tilted and stretched to touch all the sides of the "A." Maybe we'll find out more during the press conference.

N.C. State Adds Brandon Mitchell; Bench Down To Two

According to ESPN's Joe Schad, Brandon Mitchell will transfer from Arkansas to North Carolina State. This likely eliminates NC State from the competition for the services of former Penn State QB Steven Bench. Bench visited USF last week, NC State over the weekend, and Mississippi State this week. Temple and FIU are also interested in Bench.
