USF coach Jim Leavitt saw this sign claiming that South Florida had reached the level of schools like Florida, Florida State and Miami, and wasn't too thrilled about it. Sure, the Bulls have a great program, and they just beat Florida State, but as Leavitt said, there is still some history that USF doesn't have quite yet.

"We have not won national championships and we have not won conference championships. What gives us the right to sit there all of a sudden like we've won all these championships and done all this stuff? That's not me. That's never been me. I don't want anyone to ever think that here I'm the guy having anything to do with that. That bothers me."

Leavitt is a great coach, and has built up an excellent program there, and it looks like he's pretty realistic and well-grounded, as well. Good to see.
