Coming off their first break of the season, the Bulls are rested physically and mentally, and ready to get back on the field for their Saturday night showdown with Memphis.
“We had a nice bye week,” USF coach Willie Taggart said at Tuesday’s weekly press conference.
“We got some really good work in, and our guys got a chance to get their bodies back to not necessarily normal, but rejuvenated a little bit and get back ready for game action.”
One of those banged-up Bulls grateful for the bye week is junior quarterback Quinton Flowers, who said he has taken far too many hits this season.
“It gave the team a chance to get their bodies back,” Flowers said.
“Some of the guys have been banged up, and one person is me….took too many hits. It was just a great feeling to have that week off and just get our bodies back and recovered.”
Other Bulls, like junior defensive tackle Bruce Hector, used the bye week to see ease his mind and visit a physician on the silver screen.
“I saw Dr. Strange,” Hector said.
“Great movie, go see it.”
Vote for Coach T
With the polls open for Tuesday’s Presidential election, head coach Willie Taggart was asked if he had taken part in choosing the next leader of the free world.
“I voted for Coach T,” Taggart said.
“I’ve turned around two programs, I can turn around this country.”
