Onion: Bulls 'kind of hoping they lose'
In terms of pop-culture acknowledgement, now you know the Bulls have arrived. USF football got the silly treatment from theonion.com, which posted a faux story stating that USF coach Jim Leavitt saw the No. 2 ranking as "not something we really want or need at this point."
Before you send your angry comments: it's a satire site. They're just having fun with the Bulls. It also shows USF's national relevance: they kid because they care, if you will. Knowing USF, Leavitt already has copies in kids' lockers; there's no such thing as too much random motivation.
Best Onion headline? "Dan Marino Hosts Hour-Long HBO Special Celebrating Favre's Interceptions."
