Added citations[edit]

Hello, I added the requested citations to the Stadium section and a link to the USF 2006 Football Media Guide in the external links section.

Thank you, Kizarvexis 02:39, 15 October 2006 (UTC)


It seems to me the most common name of this subject would be USF Bulls football. Shall I move to rename? -- SwissCelt 21:27, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

The name as it currently stands abides by the college football naming convention set forth by WikiProject College football. I prefer USF myself, but I think the current redirect should suffice. --Littledrummrboy 15:54, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

The name should be changed. According to USF's own naming conventions, it should either be called "University of South Florida Bulls" or "USF Bulls" as "South Florida Bulls" is explicitly forbidden (See the Southern Cal comment in the above link for another example). Here is the exact text of USF's policy "When referring to the University please be aware of the following policy regarding usage. First references to the school and its intercollegiate athletics program should always be the University of South Florida. The only secondary reference used should be USF or Bulls. Please refrain from using South Florida, S. Florida, South Fla. or any other similar combination." —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:43, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Seperate page for 2006 South Florida Bulls[edit]

The 2007 South Florida Bulls have their own page, I think their should be one for the 2006 South Florida Bulls as well. This page should remain as a page to describe the team as a whole only, including it's history and such. This way this page can be linked to describe the bulls and pages for separate years can be made. --BaRiMzI 19:42, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

I agree. I'm replacing the info box with one that's not season-specific. I'll save the infobox as it currently stands here for reference if someone should choose to start the 2006 football season. --Littledrummrboy 15:56, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Move to South Florida Bulls[edit]

I propose a move to South Florida Bulls as it is currently being used as a redirect to this page. It was originally used as a redirect to USF but I changed it to this page as it makes more sense. Now that it redirects here, it seems only right that South Florida Bulls would be the page for the bulls instead of South Florida Bulls football.--BaRiMzI 01:32, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

No. There are other athletic teams that use the name "South Florida Bulls." As much as many USF students think so, we do have other teams apart from football. Mike H. I did "That's hot" first! 03:09, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
