Bulls adjust depth
After Thursday?s loss to Northern Illinois, the USF football coaching staff has made some changes to the depth chart. Freshman Brian Fisher is going to move to starting wide receiver, replacing senior Hugh Smith.
Senior Tchecoy Blount will return to the defensive line after having some problems with the completion of classes from the summer. Coach Jim Leavitt said Blount, along with junior Tavares Jurineack and senior Greg Walls, will be working to increase strength and production on the line.
With the return of Blount, Leavitt also confirmed that Lee Roy Selmon Jr. will be listed as a redshirt this season as previously reported by the team.
Bulls work on conditioning
The Bulls had a night practice Monday. They worked out in helmets and shoulder pads in the nearly 1 1/2 hour practice. The Bulls then spent an additional 30 minutes after practice working on conditioning.
?We had a good practice. Everybody responded well. They know we didn?t play good enough to win, so we lost. Bottom line, we got to play better. We were disappointed and we expect to play better,? said Leavitt. ?It all depends on what your expectations are and our expectations as a football team is more than what we did.?
