» Just 11 years after USF launched a football program so modest that it operated out of trailers, the Bulls hit the big time this year, making it into the Top 10. “We’re on top of the world,” defensive end George Selvie told reporters after the West Virginia game at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, where a school-record crowd of 67,018 showed up. The Cinderella story proves you don’t need a campus stadium to make it big, although USF officials say the pressure’s already mounting to jump into the arms race and build one. Meanwhile, Coach Jim Leavitt — the Bulls’ first and only head coach — now has a $7-million, seven-year contract.
