Leavitt revels in Sant'Yago parade fun



Lots of basketball to reflect on from Saturday, but perhaps the most amusing news was that USF football coach Jim Leavitt was an honored bead-tossing guest at the Sant'Yago Illuminated Knight parade in Ybor City on Saturday night.

The clincher is that Tampa Bay's 10 got some video of Leavitt, loaded with beads and smiling in the back of a convertible. The second shot of Leavitt from the clip is great -- in classic Ybor parade fashion, somebody convinced him to take his shirt off, so he pulls his green USF warmup off and tosses it into the crowd. And yes, he did have a white T-shirt on. Rocky the Bull even made it into the clip.

This, much like his Sun Dome basketball cameo in USF's student section last month, shows he's letting his guard down a little this offseason, something I haven't always seen him do ...
