Birmingham Bowl botches USF's name on t-shirts
[Image: DQTTS4dWAAIl_Nu.jpg]

Quote:Despite ending the regular season with a heartbreaking 49-42 loss to Central Florida, South Florida has had a solid 9-2 year that will end in the Birmingham Bowl on Dec. 23.

Unfortunately for the Bulls, the official bowl game apparel is advertising for a school that doesn’t exist. The University of South Florida is taking on Texas Tech in the bowl game – not South Florida University.

To make this situation even more awkward, USF played in this exact bowl game last season – and technically in 2006 when it was called the PapaJohns.com Bowl – beating South Carolina, 46-39, in overtime.

However, the name is wrong only some of the apparel, but not all of it, specifically the tonal variety.

Gives a whole new meaning to SFU!

Ouch, USF should never get the Eastern North Carolina treatment.

I'm sure plenty of Oklahoma University fans are upset as well.

I remember when that was the PapaJohns.com bowl when it was a Big East bowl. The year Cincinnati was in it, they misspelled Cincinnati. And the Stadium did not sell Papa John's pizza but a local pizzeria had the pizza concessions. And of course they ran out of pizza.

Reminds me of the time the cheerleaders in my home town carried a banner through town in a parade declaring that they had SPRIT.

Nothing says support your academically failing schools than a misspelled parade banner.

Hopefully the link will work. This bowl has been mismanaged from day one!

They did the exact same thing in 2009 when South Carolina played there. It’s consistently one of the worst run bowls

Looks as if there is a lack of effective oversight with the contracted vendor that created the design. Once a sample design is created, it needs to be approved or reviewed by a couple of knowledgeable, detail-oriented people associated with the bowl/schools prior to mass production.

Eastern North Carolina is where East Carolina University is located. What is odd, and understandable, is referring to ECU as Eastern Carolina University.

Why is this understandable? In western North Carolina, there is a university named Western Carolina University.
