When you start thinking about Skip Holtz at U.S.F. the word that jumps out is conservative. U.S.F will run the football with the spread.That means we will win, but it will be boring. On defense we will play zone. However, we will not be out coached like were in the past by Cincinnati, Pittsburgh,and Rutgers. One person we have in common with our friendship with N.F.L. veteren, and current N.F.L. union executive Tom Carter who starred at Lakewood High in Saint Petersburg Florida. He was who was an all American at Notre Dame, and in two Lou Holtz books. At that same time, another classmate was William Floyd the current radio analyst for Florida State football who won a Superbowl with the 49ers. My point is that is the type of talent Holtz will have to choose from in the Tampa Bay area. There are a ton of Carters, and Floyds running around the Tampa Bay area literally, and figuratively.  He convinced me he knows what he is doing when East Carolina started last year beating West Virgina, and Virgina Tech. He wins with less talent, and resources than the other guy. His dad is not going to be far away, and will help him hire quality assistant coaches. The downfall of Jim Leavitt that even though he has been a nice guy to me every-time I have met him, his peers think he is a jerk when it comes to business. Leavitt never figured out how to hire a good offensive coordinator. Holtz will also think he is God , but he has learned from his father to give the press, players, and assistants enough humanity to keep them fooled. 10-2 is in our future, with a couple of breaks a National Championship. Hopefully, Holtz understands that we have enough talent in the Tampa bay to win the second college national championship in the Tampa Bay area. The 1st one was the Freedie Solomon, Paul Parlette Orndorff University of Tampa Team. Next for Holtz would be a 5 million dollar job somewhere
