Trying to catch up on links ...



I'm soooo far behind on the position breakdowns. I could do two a day from here out and I'd still need to post special teams Saturday morning to be done before the season starts. So lots to do in the next few days, but first I'll get some links out of the way ...

-- UCF's year-old Bright House Networks Stadium is getting $400,000 in construction to help limit the amount of "sway" that comes as a result of fans jumping up and down in unison, according to UCF's student newpaper, Central Florida Future. Looks like all the work won't be done in time for USF's game there next weekend, and UCF is only on the hook for $100,000 of the work involved in stiffening support beams in the stadium's end zones. A study of the stadium showed no structural or safety concerns. Florida Today mentions the Bulls in writing about UCF's nonconference games giving a chance for greater exposure for the Knights.

-- An Illinois newspaper writes about the I-AA teams that get big paychecks for traveling to face major-conference opponents, as Tennesee-Martin will this season.

-- has its Big East preview, with Leavitt quotes from the Big East media days in Newport.

-- Not to look ahead, but is already addressing a key position battle in the USF-Kansas game in two weeks -- how two untested offensive tackles will be able to handle USF's pass rush and All-American George Selvie. The Bulls' ability to get to quarterback Todd Reesing, especially early, could be the key to the game.

-- The Rocky Mountain News has a good feature on former USF running back Andre Hall, who has vastly improved his position with the Denver Broncos in the past year.

-- Women's soccer! According to the Asbury Park Press, USF coach Denise Schilte-Brown has a commitment from one of New Jersey's top players in sweeper Alexandra Eagle.

Lots more to come, so read these quick ...
