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:

The Bulls Pen Ad-free Raffle in support of USF Football

Thank you,

Brad Brad

I wonder how Greg knows Shannon is interested... Would seem to be a good opportunity to get back to Florida.

Greg's pretty good about confirming material. I'd guess it's from Shannon himself.

Seems the focus this week will be recruiting until Saturday, then CWT will build his staff when the dead period begins.

A great staff is needed to help this young and energetic coach.

D.J. Durkin is apparently a top-flight recruiter, although (as acknowledged in this article) UF almost sells itself, so I'm not sure how good he actually is. He's also great at special teams, which we could really use (particularly in the return game). He coached at Stanford while CWT was there, which could help land him.

If I were choosing between the two of them, however, I'd still pick Randy Shannon. Recruiting-wise, he's got lots of invaluable connections in Florida, and he has experience and a lot of success at DC and HC (which could help CWT - have to remember he's young and only has three years as a HC). But Durkin would be an excellent second choice.
