OPINION: USF-Georgia Tech Takeaways

ATLANTA  — USF’s (0-2, 0-0 AAC) 14-10 loss against Georgia Tech (1-1, 0-1 ACC) on Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium looked like an actual game, a stark contrast from last week’s blowout to Wisconsin.

So close, yet so far: Bulls’ losing streak up to 8

ATLANTA — It was so close you could practically hear Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” playing during USF’s 14-10 loss Saturday against Georgia Tech at Bobby Dodd Stadium. “Knock, knock, knockin’ on Heaven’s door.” Although in this case, “Heaven” was Georgia Tech’s end zone. With the Yellow Jackets (1-1, […]

USF-Wisconsin halftime thoughts

After waiting out a weather delay to the tune of almost an hour, USF football trails No. 19 Wisconsin 28-0 at halftime. We’ll keep things short here: things could be going better for the Bulls. Offensive jitters? Blake Barnett went deep a few times during the first quarter — once […]

No Viens, no problem: Bulls tame Lions 2-0

SAINT LEO — Senior forward Evelyne Viens was notably absent from the lineup, but the Bulls’ newcomers edged out a victory as No. 21 USF women’s soccer defeated Division II Saint Leo 2-0 at Saint Leo Soccer Field on Thursday night. The lack of Viens gave way for new recruits […]

The persistent visionary

It might be fair to say USF’s offense wasn’t persistent enough when it had the football last season.  After all, the Bulls finished seventh in the 12-team AAC and 69th in the 130-team FBS in total offense. Fortunately, USF’s new offensive coordinator has been persistent his entire career. Meet Kerwin […]
