Unofficial USF Athletic Director Hiring Process Flowchart

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.

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

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

Solomon Jones is back in the NBA, signing a free-agent contract with the New York Knicks as they battle through a plague of injuries. He won't be eligible to join the playoff roster, but it's good to see him back in the league. Also it looks like they did have enough time to make him a jersey with his name stitched on the back. I thought they may have had to throw him out there in a blank uniform.

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

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.

USF beat Michigan 2-1 in men's soccer on Friday night, which is a good way to start the season. I am curious, though, how they already won the 2012 Big East championship when there haven't been any Big East games played this season.

YES I WOULD HAPPILY TAKE THIS MAN'S CRAZY MONEY. The New York Daily News (through Big East Coast Bias) has a story about what NBC might be willing to offer the Big East in a new television contract.
