  4. Where Are You Sitting?

    Got my tickets this morning! Super fast turn around on my order. Athletics must have over-nighted them just in time for the game. Section 17 Row 18 Seat 10!
  5. Made it! In the Gainsville Regional with FAMU UF and FAU
  6. USF Softball

    Northwestern is in the same boat as us nationally this year. That game was going to go either way but I was giving us the slight edge. To see us lose to them in that fashion was very disappointing. Kansas is a mediocre team. Nothing special coming out of their team. We should have been able to take care of them rather quickly. I was expecting a score of 4-0 or 3-1 for this game. Ken is running a top-tier program and we have the talent to compete with practically any team in the country (except for a few power houses). I am sure he was miffed because he almost got run-ruled at home twice on the same day. Looking at the schedule the only team that should give us any difficulty before conference play is Baylor. They are more than likely going to be a top ten team when we play them so hopefully we get our act together because that game should help us out in the rankings should we win. I expect us to be on a 11-0 or 10-1 streak heading into conference play this year.
  7. USF Softball

    Bulls are playing game two today against Maine. Currently tied at 2 in the bottom of the second. Here is the live stats page: http://www.gousfbulls.com/newLiveStats/Softball/index.dbml?GAME_STAT_ID=1486636&db_oem_id=7700
  8. Bulls vs. Gators Tonight

    USF won game two 9-0 by a run rule grand slam. The Bulls play Wisconsin tonight at 6pm.
  9. Bulls vs. Gators Tonight

    For those curious, bulls vision live stats are down. I found the Gators radio feed, while the commentary will be terrible at least it is an opportunity to hear our bulls! http://mgmt.firststreaming.com/listen/player.php?callsign=WMOP_AM
  10. Bulls vs. Gators Tonight

    Ta'cois Williams hits a bomb over the CF wall in her first collegiate at-bat! Bulls are up 1-0 after the first inning!
  11. Bulls vs. Gators Tonight

    Glad to hear it is SRO tonight. The Softball team should have a packed house most nights this year. Any updates would be great appreciated through out the night!
  12. Another Bull in the SuperBowl.

    He mainly played special teams tonight. I saw him multiple times on the kick-off unit. On the Percy Harvin return for a TD to start the 2nd half, you can see he over-run Percy and miss the tackle.
  13. Softball, Men's Soccer, Volleyball would be my top 3. I feel that softball has a chance to win the conference title this season!
  14. USF #25 in the NFCA Preseason softball poll

    We are very lucky with this softball team and where we are located. Every year we get a heavy slate of games at home/clearwater. Before we even get into the conference tournament. We play 39 games at home and 8 games in Clearwater, compared to 10 road games! I highly recommend going out and supporting one of the most consistent and top teams at USF!
  15. I am glad to see that the increased focus by the university on student success and graduation is starting to pay off! http://news.usf.edu/article/templates/?a=5978&z=195 63 percent graduation rate is an institutional record and marks a 15-point jump from just five years ago. TAMPA, Fla. (Jan. 17, 2013) - The University of South Florida has announced that its graduation rate has soared to an all-time record of 63 percent. The six-year graduation rate of 63 percent is an accomplishment resulting from an unprecedented focus on student success, utilizing a number of new tools and strategies to ensure that USF students graduate on time, with low debt, prepared for productive careers or advanced education. The new rate marks a 15-point jump from just five years ago, when the number hovered at about 48 percent. USF’s announcement comes as the future of higher education is in the national spotlight. College and university presidents from across the country recently met at the White House to discuss several topics, including improved access and graduation rates. In addition, Florida’s Board of Governors has approved a new performance funding model aimed at rewarding the highest-achieving schools. One of the measures state universities will be judged on is graduation rates. “Across the university, our No. 1 job is making sure our students have the skills, knowledge and experiences they need to graduate and succeed in life. The sooner we can open those doors for them, the better off they are. And as they graduate, more new crops of bright students are able to take advantage of the educational opportunities on campus to prepare them for their own successful careers,†said Provost and Executive Vice President Ralph Wilcox. USF’s improvements from last year and during the past five years are among the highest in the country when compared to Association of American Universities (AAU) members. With these gains, USF continues to position itself for AAU membership. Among that group, USF has the largest increase in the country when comparing fall 2006 to fall 2005. USF also has the third largest increase over the past five years, trailing only Ohio State University and Stony Brook University by one percent. In 2009, USF launched a renewed focus on this issue, forming a university-wide task force to ensure USF maximized its dedication to student success. Innovative policies and practices were designed to raise graduation and retention rates, reduce student debt, increase student satisfaction with the university, accelerate progression to careers or post-graduate programs and make sure students leave USF with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. Those strategies included: expanding living and learning communities, requiring freshmen to live on campus, instituting a professional advising system, implementing a new degree audit system, redesigning courses to improve passing rates and learning outcome, expanding on-campus employment opportunities, opening a revolutionary new Science, Math, Technology, and Research Lab that provides state-of-the-art teaching technology to students, expanding study areas across campus, and making more tutors available. "The six-year graduation rate jumped about 11 points in just two years, a phenomenal rate of growth that is undoubtedly one of the highest in the country,†said Paul Dosal, USF’s vice provost of Student Success. “Our student success efforts have transformed the entire university community. As such, our students’ achievements represent the achievements of everyone on campus. But our work is not done. We're now setting our sights on a 70 percent graduation rate. I’m certain everyone at USF will continue to do their part in achieving this important university priority.†USF continues to recruit and admit more academically prepared students than ever, with the most recent freshman class coming to the university with a record-high average high school GPA of 4.0.
