The Bulls recently unveiled the road version of their new Under Armour jerseys. The home versions aren’t yet completed, but George Selvie modeled the road look for photos and a new wallpaper on the University of South Florida’s official web site.

The new look features relatively minor, but noticeable, changes.

There are more stylized numbers with ends that taper to a point, rather than the traditional, block style.

Green piping is now included on the edges of the sleeves and the neckline.

The Bulls logo is emblazoned on the left thigh of the uniform pants. 

USF vs. UCF, the softball version: The Bulls will need a big tournament from freshman P Capri Catalano, featured in Friday’s Tampa Tribune, if they are to advance out of the NCAA Softball Regional this weekend.

USF opens with UCF today, but No. 1 Florida is the obvious favorite.

Catalano is battling hip, groin and back injuries, her father Tony Catalano said. Catalano, who pitched her senior year in high school wearing a back brace because of a fractured back, is not expected to miss any games, but hopefully the injuries don’t limit her effectiveness.

Baseball picks up huge win USF’s come-from-behind 5-4 victory against Notre Dame Thursday virtually clinched a spot in next week’s Big East baseball tournament.

The only way the Bulls don’t qualify for the tournament is if USF loses its final two games to Notre Dame tonight and Saturday and Rutgers wins all three games at Louisville today and Saturday. One more USF win or one more Rutgers loss and the Bulls are in Clearwater for the Big East Tournament, starting Tuesday.

Checking out Dungy’s defense: Earlier this year, I reported that football assistants from Ohio State, Minnesota and Colorado had visited the Bulls’ defensive coaches for tips on how to defend the spread offense – specifically the one ran by new Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez.

Now the Bulls coaches will seek some insight from Tony Dungy’s Indianapolis Colts staff when they visit the Colts on June 9-11.

Around the Big East: Former USF F Amu Saaka signed with Furman University. He’ll have two years of eligibility. … West Virginia hasn’t had much success against USF on the football field lately, but congrats are in order for the Mountaineers. WVU was named the nation’s No. 1 party school by Rest of the top five: No. 2 Ole Miss, No. 3 Texas, No. 4 Florida, No. 5 Georgia. WVU was the only Big East school in the Top 10. … Louisville is scaling back the number of upper-deck seats in its expansion of Papa John’s Stadium, the Louisville-Courier Journal reported. UL AD Tom Jurich told the newspaper that the capacity would be 56,500, instead of 60,000. The current capacity is 42,000. The $70 million project is expected to be completed for the 2010 season. ... And after recent reports the past few days that East Carolina and Memphis would be joining the Big East, I’m disappointed to say I haven’t seen any new reports today about Rice, SMU or Southern Miss joining the Big East.
