    Gear grab Wednesday

    I really don't think they will be ticketing, for those brave at heart, just know if you got a ticket, I believe you would win the appeal.

    Gear grab Wednesday

    I think John may be on vacation. I don't know for sure, but I would think so. If I was a fan, I wouldn't buy a parking pass, then if I got a ticket, I would dispute it and send a link for the event and say I was attending an Athletics event in the Sun Dome, and believed parking pass requirements were waived. (this isn't official advice, just what I would do) Also, don't be certain there isn't some sort of Adidas gear sale at Fan Fest, it won't be the same as before, but there could have some cool offerings. The idea here is get rid of the UA gear before July 1st.
  3. Triple, I knew the post right above mine wasn't too serious, I was actually answering points he made in a previous post, but I should have quoted it. That was my bad.
  4. Brad, I will say this. Take a look at the end of the Jim Leavitt era, we had a bunch of kids from Miami Edison high school. How does that happen, kids gravitate to things to know, friends. Our best Volleyball players ever, Michelle Collier, came here from Brazil, she wasn't breaking new ground, we had 4 or 5 Brazilian players in the years leading up to her. Going to Europe for 1 or 2 kids can be tough, but when you get a bunch, word gets around that our program will feel like home to them. WBB now has gotten a bunch from Spain and now Latvia. Right now we are a top 25 program with all these Euro players, it is crazy to imply we should be doing something different, we need to appreciate what we have.

    I sit in 215 with Club Access, the door between 214 and 215 is correctly checked most games. (Funny story, one game 2 years ago, usher on my aisle would let anyone in the club, but look for club access to come out of the club back to the seats, so he was trapping people who didn't belong in the club, I tried to tell him to do it the other way, but he wanted nothing to do with my suggestion ..... like I said, that was just one game a couple years ago)

    Our Shirt 2018

    Unfortunately no, in that SG is charged with giving away the previous year's left over shirts in the following year. Meaning that at any given point in time, the bookstore has the current shirt and SG has the one before it (if any are left). This is usually done as a reward for a scavenger hunt for incoming students at orientation. Not to say you can't find one at a thrift store or ebay

    Our Shirt 2018

    Yeah, it is a meant to be style, if you can imagine an old school pocket T shirt, it is just an outline of where the pocket would be. If you google "faux pocket shirt" and click on images, you can see lots of examples.

    Our Shirt 2018

    No hard feelings, like I said, like/dislike of the shirt is always subjective. I just didn't want the premise to be that the shirts had to be made more "professional" so that they would appeal to more people.

    Our Shirt 2018

    It is not meant for the masses. It is sort of like FUBU clothing concept, For Students By Students. There are plenty of shirts meant for the masses available for sale to the masses. It is ok for people to not like the design, taste is subjective. I have no problem with that. Let me add a fact to the equation, USF/Athletics gives up the royalty on these shirts. Shirts meant for resale are supposed to have a hologram from CLC where a royalty is paid to the school. USF/Athletics is kind enough to give up this revenue to help keep the cost of the shirt low to be affordable to students. So, I want to stress, while no one stops non-students from buying them, they are meant to be for students. Student Government exists to serve the student body, not fans or alumni. Athletics is giving up the royalty to provide a benefit to students, when fans buy shirts, the shirts should be licensed. The bookstore doesn't make a profit on these shirts, they just get foot traffic. Once again, if you are not a student, feel free to buy one. But, the purpose of the shirts is meant for something else.

    Little Help...

    Let me help with this. USF aspires to be like UF athleticly, so we want to be their rivals, but they honestly don't care about us. UCF aspires to be like USF, so they want to be our rivals, but we honestly don't care about them. Did they mention they were the National Champion of all rivals? I saw it on a bumper sticker, so I know its true.

    Little Help...

    Let the original poster know that we don't have to pick our rivals, the state of Florida already did for us. State schools in Florida are broken into two groups: Preeminent and Everyone else. Since USF is a preeminent school, our rivals are the other preeminent schools, UF and FSU. Then the schools that are not preeminent are rivals with each other, like FAMU, FGCU, UCF, West Florida, North Florida to name a few.

    Our Shirt 2018

    Yes, the shirt is the same green blank that has been used for a few years in a row. There was at least one non green shirt, but with a white shirt, it really doesn't show "USF Spirit" at RJS both in person and crowd shots for tv. As for the slogan, I could have mentioned a more recent example #BullsUnite ... but #HoltzNewEra was more fun to type.

    Sun Dome Naming Rights

    George, you are missing your chance today to have 2 Publix's on campus, a store and a dome. Both serving Pub Subs.

    Our Shirt 2018

    Let me dispel some inaccurate information. For those that don't know, I work in the business office that supports SG and I am on the Our Shirt committee. First, for those who don't know, Our Shirts are meant to be for the student body at USF. They are sold in the bookstore for $5, anyone can buy them, but they are not out on the display floor, you have to know to ask for one. The idea is very simple, offer a school spirited shirt at a low price to encourage students to wear USF gear at games and around campus. SG has a great partnership with Athletics and the Bookstore (bookstore is changing this month, so we look forward to the new partnership with the new bookstore). The shirts artwork come from a design contest. While we ideally want students to enter submissions, we have accepted them from all parts of the USF community to encourage more participation. The committee picks 2 or 3 finalists from the submissions (that committee is lead by a student and mostly students are on it). Then those finalists get placed the ballot for all students to vote (it is part of the ballot where the SG President and Senators are selected). The students at USF design the shirts, and choose the winner. Athletics does not place any unreasonable restrictions on the shirts. I know the University wants the shirts to be a green shirt for purposes of how it shows on TV at the football games. Athletics makes sure the shirts don't play on an out of date slogan or hashtag (for example, the Athletics rep would have vetoed a shirt this year calling it a Holtz New Era, since that slogan is now out of date). At the end of the day, what matters is how students react to the shirts. This whole process is a win for everyone involved. SG furthers their mission to support students. the Bookstore gets walk in traffic and Athletics gets students wearing green USF shirts to the games. The shirts financially support themselves, and leftovers are given to new students the following year for completing a scavenger hunt at orientation. For what it is worth, I like this year's design, I also liked last year's. Two years ago was the one I struggled with. If anyone has any questions about the process, I am glad to assist.

    One more thing, if Michael Kelly isn't interested, I bet he could name a ton of great candidates. I also know the first name he would say is Rob Higgins.
