Every week this semester, Entertainment Editor Nick Margiasso put one of our fine USF staffers on the musical hot seat for a Q & A. This week, it’s time to round up the semester with the best answers ever given.
Oracle: If the USF Mass Comm Program was a rock band, who would it be?
Valerie Murphy: The Jackson Five; everyone wants to be the star, but only a couple make it.
Oracle: Who wins in a fight: Johnny Rotten or Ice T?
Prof. Jonathon Gayles: First of all, Ice T straightens his hair. Secondly, the name “Johnny Rotten” is far more intimidating than “Ice T.” Third, Johnny Rotten has a band mate named Sid Vicious. Last and most importantly, Johnny Rotten, for all of his antics, is highly critical of the corporate influence on popular music. Plus, Ice T was in Pimps Up, Ho’s Down. Rotten wins – period.
Oracle: What is the best music for solving equations?
Jim Tremmel: The sound of silence. (Editor’s Note: Does he mean the Simon and Garfunkel song, or the actual sound? Another clever rue courtesy of Mr. Jimmy “Jam” Tremmel!)
Oracle: If you had a hit single what would it be called and what kind of music would it be?
Prof. Steve Tauber: “Forever 4:20,” and it would feature me playing acoustic guitar for a half an hour.
(Editor’s note: I swear, I don’t make this stuff up.)

The annual tournament, hosted at UF, typically takes place during the fall semester and features some of the best club flag football teams in the country. Winners of the […]
Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
Student Government (SG) launched the first-of-its-kind, merit-based scholarship to students Nov. 5 on USF’s Tampa campus. As a part of Student Body President Britney Deas and Student Body Vice President Travis McCloskey’s platform, Bull S.H.I.F.T., — Success, Health, Innovation, Finance and Tradition — the SG’s Student Leadership Scholarship consists of two merit-based scholarships which will […]
A plan drafted on a bar napkin two years ago has now become the USF Jabil Innovation Institute, a multi-million dollar institute combining the College of Engineering and the Muma College of Business. Senior Vice President of Advancement and CEO of the USF Foundation Joel Momberg and Jabil CEO Mark Mondello jotted the idea down […]
