It’s been an entire workweek since the Bulls knocked off No. 17 Auburn at Jordan-Hare stadium.
But the national attention USF has received since its snub in both major polls has yet to die down.
Listed below are a few of the statements written about the Bulls since Saturday.
Pete Themel, New York Times: “The Bulls have a future all-American at quarterback in Matt Grothe and a defense with N.F.L.-caliber talent at secondary and linebacker.”
Jake Curtis, San Francisco Chronicle: “Maybe South Florida needs to hire some Madison Avenue guys to dress up its football image, because winning games does not seem to be enough.”
Mel Kieper Jr., ESPN.com: “The CB tandem of Mike

Stewart Mandel, CNNSI.com: A public service to my fellow voters: The school is called South Florida (or USF). Its nickname is the Bulls. They play in a BCS conference. And over their past four games they’ve beaten both West Virginia and Auburn on the road. You might want to think about putting them on your ballot.”

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 […]
