BREAKING: USF’s Big XII Presentation Materials Released

USF’s case to join the Power Five conference is below.

Copies of all materials used in USF’s presentation to become a member of the Big XII Conference last Friday in Dallas have become public.

These materials were presented to the conference as well as the consulting firms retained by the conference, Navigate Research and Bevilacqua Helfant Ventures. USF President Dr. Judy Genshaft, Director of Athletics Mark Harlan, USF Board of Trustees Chairman Brian Lamb, Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik, as well as a representative from the university’s Office of the General Counsel made the presentation.

As the individual materials & videos become available and we can break them out of this 1.06 GB file, we’ll add them here. But for now, hit up my Dropbox for the presentation in full.

To be noted: it is possible more pieces of this are still forthcoming.

UPDATE 5:53 P.M. Here’s all the slides screencapped. The Powerpoint is a total of 28 "pages" with 25 slides and three videos. The slides are below, we’re working on adding the videos.

UPDATE 7:17 P.M. Videos have been added.

UPDATE: 9:13 P.M. We crashed SB Nation's single-page capability. Had to take out some slides. Sorry. We left the important ones.

Also a copy of this document was handed out, USF's Research Plan for 2017-2021.
