I had Jury Duty today ... brought my Media Guide to pass the time.

1. Our oldest player is 26. LS Dudding, served in the U.S. Coast Guard.

2. OL Herzhauser coached High School football before coming to USF. Spent 2 years in the U.S. Air Force and also coached briefly at Lakewood under Otis Dixon(former USF RB - The Dump Truck).

3. DE McElwain played on the same Jr League ockey program in Saskatchewan as Vinny Lacavalier.

4. Tyrone McKenzie qualified for the state 4A track campionships ... in the 110 Hurdles  :o

5. New Kicker Brockhaus-Kann's father was a teammate of Leavitt at Mizzou. Still holds the team record for longest punt, 82 yards - against Kansas St.

5 Things You Might Not Know About The Bulls

The Tampa Tribune

Published: August 25, 2008

Slim Pickings

•When quarterback Matt Grothe didn't throw an interception, the Bulls were 9-0 the past two seasons.

Student Support

•USF has the largest student section in the Big East (12,501), which accounts for 19 percent of Raymond James Stadium's 65,857 capacity. The largest percentage of students at Big East stadiums is West Virginia (21 percent of 60,000), followed by Rutgers (20 percent of 42,500), USF and Cincinnati (17 percent of 35,000).

Welcome Back An Original Bull

•First-year DE coach Kevin Patrick returns to USF after a 10-year absence. He was on USF's inaugural staff and led the Bulls onto the field for their inaugural game against Kentucky Wesleyan in 1997, but was nearly blinded when a sparkler shot in his eye.

Costly Experience

•Because USF is Florida International's first opponent in the Golden Panthers' new on-campus stadium, it will cost Bulls fans a record $51 per ticket. The previous high for a USF single-game ticket was last year's visit to Auburn ($48).

Turn Up The Heat

•The hotter the better: The Bulls are 26-3 in home games when the temperature at kickoff is 80 degrees or warmer.

How can USF have a 19% and a 17% ratio on students to total attendance? Am I the only one that caught this typo?

    "There is no inherent fear among this group of players. The fear of failing drove the program from day one - the fear of failing the coaches, the fan base, the university, each teammate, themselves. Now, as we head into the biggest game in our history at home on a national stage against the highest ranked team to step on OUR field, the players are taking an introspective look at themselves. Unfortunately, I don't know if they get it. They lack the fear."

    Terry Lucas, 09/26/22

    "I wish you guys could be in the locker room and be on the practice field because it is so much different from what it has been in the past."
