Hello there, back to blogging

After more than a week away from Shootin’ the Bull, I’m back. And like Jason Pierre-Paul, my back hurts.

His back aches from returning to football; mine from some rare physical labor.

I’m no longer a Tallahassean living in part-time in Tampa. There is not a lot to say other than moving really stinks.

Finally back in the Tampa Bay area full-time, I’m officially relaunching my little blog here on

OK, I’m done. That statement should suffice. The blog is officially relaunched.

I plan to have some sort of summer contest that I’ll post on here soon, but for now, a few tidbits from the headlines today:

USF lost out to Marquette for coveted 6-foot-8 center Davante Gardner of King’s Fork (Va.) High.

“I liked the atmosphere there and all the people up there,’’ Gardner told the Suffolk (Va.) News-Herald. “It’s a whole lot of stress off me.’’

For more on this story, click here to read about Gardner’s decision.

USF has officially responded to former football coach Jim Leavitt’s lawsuit, filing a motion to dismiss the complaint. I’ll have more on this in Wednesday’s Tampa Tribune.

Anyway, when I returned to work today I had more than 500 e-mails to decipher. I noticed several are from regular readers of the blog and newspaper. I promise to respond to them all and thanks for checking in.

Glad to be back.

You’re too young to be complaining of back problems from a little move.

If your summer contest is going to be a predictions contest, please consider asking fans the biggest question of all this summer. . . . . which conference will USF be playing in in three years?

Glad your back!  Almost went into detox from having no updates…..I’m with Brian the contest, or at least the tie-breaker, should relate to conference re-alignment.

Welcome Back!

Just a note for the future.  Would be nice to know you wont be posting for some time so we dont check everyday to see nothing was added.

Should make a post saying something along the lines of, “I’m moving from Tallahassee this week and posting will be sparse at best.”

I’ll make sure to do that next time I’m out of pocket for a few days. I got so busy that I turned on my computer I think once last week. Hard to believe a human can survive in 2010 by doing that, but I guess it’s still possible smile.

Take care and thanks for checking in.
