It's Skip Holtz Day in Temple Terrace

Sometimes, USF, you make our jobs around here a little too easy. I feel like we're playing Scrabble with 5-year-olds. How freaking oblivious to everything that's happening around you can you be?? For all the ensuing comedy from this high honor given by the mayor of Temple Terrace, check the #SkipHoltzDay tag on Twitter. So far, I vote @ESmith311 the winner for this one: "Temple Terrace Mayor extends #SkipHoltzDay to a week and signs new contract giving himself same meal comps as coach at local restaurants."

Volleyball's Kayla Walton Named First Team All-Big East, Erin Fairs Big East Freshman of the Year

It was an up and down season for USF Volleyball with the later-than-usual transition to new head coach Courtney Draper. But the team certainly finished strong, winning three of their last four to make it to the Big East Tournament. And these two players return next year as the projected starters on each pin for a team that will enter 2013 with high expectations. Fairs is becoming a dynamic 6 rotation player, and Walton hits as hard a ball as any right side in the league, using her 6'3 frame to also help as a force at the net. But they've got unfinished business to attend to in 2012 at 3:30pm today as they take on Notre Dame in the opening round of the conference tournament in Milwaukee. The match will be broadcast live on BigEast.tv, so mentally check out at your cubicle about 90 minutes early today and stream away. Should be a good one: If the Bulls pass the tough serving Irish effectively, they should head back to the semifinals for the first time since 2009.

Stan Heath Talks About His 2013 Recruiting Class

All six of USF basketball's 2013 verbal commitments signed their letters of intent on Thursday, and Heath was finally allowed to talk about them all. The six players are: - John Egbunu, a 6'10" center from Fort Walton Beach and an ESPN100 recruit - Chris Perry, a 6'8" forward from Bartow and another ESPN100 player - Dre'Kalo "Dre" Clayton, a 6'6" forward from Orlando Evans - Bo Ziegler, a 6'6" guard/forward from Detroit Community School - Drew Davis, a 6'0" guard and Egbunu's teammate at Fort Walton Beach - Stan's son Josh Heath, a 6'2" point guard from Tampa Prep Interesting that after going several years with only Toarlyn Fitzpatrick as an impact local recruit, USF has signed five Florida players in this class.

(Holtz) was disappointed to find out Monday that a few Bulls players left the field before Saturday's final play, a kickoff from Syracuse with three seconds left.

From Greg Auman's notes blog entry on Monday. If that's something that happened, I'm sure Skip is right to be worried. One clunker, mail-it-in performance out of his team and the pressure on him and his boss will hit extreme levels.

That was a message from Zoidberg. Expert on all things bad.

"After Bridgewater went 21-for-25, USF has allowed a 69.4 percent completion rate against opposing quarterbacks this season."

That comes from the "notes" section of the Tribune's wrapup from Louisville. It's really 69.42%, to be exact, which is next-to-last in the entire FBS. Only Kentucky is worse, at 70% on the nose. #LikeACosh

USF Men's Basketball Voted 8th Place In Preseason Media Poll

Sounds about right to me. Based on absolutely zero research, I am positive this is the highest preseason ranking the Bulls have had since joining the Big East. Louisville was the unanimous first-place choice, followed by Syracuse, Notre Dame, and Cincinnati. DePaul was last again. #BootDePaul

"Big 4" McGillis Wonders About USF Basketball's Toughness, Of All Things

Just an unbelievable tweet for several reasons, not the least of which is your associate athletic director questioning your basketball team's toughness publicly. Also that their defense and toughness are the attributes that this team has always had, even when they weren't winning games. Stan Heath responded in kind, but I feel bad that he even had to do that.
