And also, gasp, a look at USF's last bowl win, against Clemson. Boy have those two programs gone in opposite directions!

Here's a look at what others are saying about USF athletics

Tampa Bay Times looks are USF's new, youthful athletic department

After following Mark Harlan, Willie Taggart, and Orlando Antigua around the Tampa Bay region, friend of the blog Joey Johston takes a gander at how, In a relatively short period of time, USF went from having a 62 year-old athletic director, a 48 year-old football coach, and a 49 year-old basketball coach, to finding replacements aged 44, 37, and 41, respectively.

Now, USF's athletic director and three of its most prominent coaches all are 45 or younger. No other major program in the South — and no school in any of the five power conferences — can make that claim.

"In the beginning, I was very concerned," said Mike Charles, a current board member and former president of the USF Bulls Club.

"But I luckily have been blessed with the opportunity to actually be able to spend some time with our new AD, our new basketball coach, and actually I know Willie … and I'd have to say I'm very excited about the future, and I think that things are going to get back in shape at USF again."
