Touch ‘Em All, Bulls

Move over, Joe Carter . The University of South Florida Bulls’ 27-3 romp  over the Northern Illinois Huskies in the 2010 International Bowl has supplanted the 1993 Toronto Blue Jays’ walkoff World Series win  as the greatest moment in SkyDome/Rogers Centre history.
USF is my alma mater. I graduated from there so long ago  they didn’t have a football team (and I was robbing various roommates  of sleep by clacking the night away on an electric typewriter). Then they invented one with the hopes of someday playing a bowl game in January. They were probably thinking of something a little more traditional than the International Bowl, but newbies can’t be choosers.
In the past five years, USF — handling a pigskin only since 1997 — has participated in the Meineke Car Care Bowl , the PapaJohns.com Bowl , the Brut Sun Bowl  (earned after an occasionally spectacular 2007  campaign), the magicJack St. Petersburg Bowl  and now the one that mysteriously materializes in Canada on the first Saturday of the new year.
Canada? College football? It doesn’t sound prestigious on the surface, but I’ll take the win and consider it a measure of the Bulls going global. Seven American wins this season and now one North of the Border. You know what that means…
Prestige Worldwide!
