USF Admissions Dept takes another loss... wonder if they hired some of the old Athletic Department marketing team from Doug Woolard era!

 

This actually made local news out here on West Coast. While funny - definitely feel for the kids who maybe saw the email, informed their family, etc. Awful (and stupid) mistake.

It made your news out there and not a peep here in Tampa. I've worked at USF off and on for years and my wife has worked there since 2005, and I wouldn't have even known about this without your post. I understand it looks bad, but I don't think it's the national disgrace some will try and paint this as.

Yeah I agree, not a national disgrace. Very unfortunate for some kids. It happens - Ivy league schools have had issues. But man, embarrassing for sure.
