USF Series will not be continued beyond 2013

The St. Petersburg Times reported in today's paper that "the Hurricanes have told athletic director Doug Woolard they are not interested in continuing the [USF] rivalry beyond 2013, when their six-game contract ends."

  "That article is accurate. We're not going to extend beyond the five-year window we're in the middle of,''  Chris Freet, UM associate athletic director for communications, told The Miami Herald on Wednesday. "We're not going to extend that.''

The article states that "the Bulls wanted to extend the series,'' but that UM athletic director Kirby Hocutt nixed the idea.

Freet also said in the report that UM has one opening in 2014, but is interested in a neutral-site game.
