Hi Guest,

Just a note to point out our TBP-initiated drive to raise funds for the Bulls Football IPF - doing our share, and more.  Please consider donating at least $23 to the effort, and passing on to others as well.  You can read more about the project at the link above.

Go Bulls!

Thank you,

Hi Guest,

In our efforts to raise funds for USF Football, the site is giving away a football season full of ad-free surfing at The Bulls Pen.

Would you consider buying a ticket or two to the raffle that will award this to you or a fellow member of the board?

Each ticket purchase goes directly to our effort to raise $10K in "fan money" for the program.  Below is the link:

Thank you,

Brad Brad

Spring game run in with Mike Kelly

Recommended Posts

While me and El Toro engorged ourselves on FREE wings from World OF Beer we ran into a wandering Michael Kelly , our acting AD, we had some questions ; he answered.

1. How is the new president and what does he think about USF athletics?  a: I haven’t met him yet but he has promised more money to athletics.

2. How do we reclaim Tampa as BULLS COUNTRY not Gville south.? What strides are taking place to make Tampa BULLS COUNTRY ? Selling the Bay Area? A: concentrating on South Tampa and  Beach areas  to promote the brand.

3. The IPF is coming and it is a package deal to a stadium  on campus. 

Loved the candidness of Mr. Mike Kelly and his openness , polar opposite of Harlan.

Asked him about Corbett Stadium as a potential site, he didn’t say yes or no, just it has to share the soccer and softball teams.

I like Mr. Kelly.  He is a breath of fresh air.....he has a hard job here at USF.  i know some people dont think he is moving things along fast enough.  But I still think we will look back at this hire as being a turning point for our athletic dept.

By the title of the thread, I was expecting you to say that he was talking **** and you kicked his ass.

Not acting.  Permanent position just being called VPofA.

He seems to actually be interested in building something sustainable here. Any other VPoA/AD looking to springboard would be forcing/rushing the IPF along without the proper monetary backing and placing our athletic department into financial peril in order to tout what they did to get their next gig. I am hoping he is here for the long-haul.

Yeah, “run in” to me invokes something different than what actually seemed to occur. Maybe should have used “Spring game hook up with Mike Kelly”. Of course that could have invoked something different, too.

Wait...what? Am I reading this correctly? Funding tied to an on campus football stadium?

When me and my group left Mr Kelly was standing at the gate closest to the Selmon center and shaking people's hands and thanking them for coming.  I can't say it enough, this guy gets it and he's going to do big things for USF.
