Links: Jones says college was 'getting boring'



Should be some news to report later this afternoon, but for now, I'm cleaning out the USF links to give you some weekend reading ...

-- Bright House Sports Networks has a 12-minute video interview with former USF guard Dominique Jones. Some curious comments -- Jones said "it got to a point where college wasn't challenging to me anymore.  It was kind of getting boring knowing every time you step out there you might have two or three people guarding you." He said Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has jokingly called him "$3-Million Man," for the amount he paid to the Memphis Grizzlies for Jones' rights.

-- USF men's soccer coach George Kiefer, who has guided arguably the Bulls' most successful program in recent years, has an 11-player recruiting class coming in, including two late additions from Jamaica. After a 2009-10 school year in which no Bulls teams won Big East titles, men's soccer will be in strong position this fall.

-- The Hartford Courant has a short USF preview as it runs through the Huskies' Big East opponents.

-- The Weekly Challenger writes that USF quarterback B.J. Daniels volunteered at Gators and Raiders receiver Louis Murphy's camp for kids in St. Petersburg.

-- Five months after it was first reported he was headed to his alma mater, former USF offensive line coach Mike Simmonds was announced as an assistant at Indiana State last week.

-- More Bright House video -- they caught up with former USF grad assistant Jared Davis, entering his first season as head coach at Countryside.

-- Sun-Sentinel has notes on Florida Atlantic's new stadium, which will run about $65-million and should seat 30,000, starting next season.
