Predicting the starters next year
Too early? Predicting the starters next year
Who's up for speculation?

Offense

QB: Oladokun


RB: Sands / Mack


WR: Salomon


WR: McCants


WR: Antoine / Bronson


TE: Dillon / Wilcox


OL: skipping



Defense

DT: Bronson


DT: Pinkney


DE: Livingstone


DE: Reaves


LB: Sawtelle


LB: Polk


CB: Wilkins


CB: Hoggins


Nickel: Culpepper / Watts


SS: Thomas


FS: McGee / Watts



A few observations:

Every single WR, besides Salomon, that has been remotely productive is graduating next year. Scary.


Big shoes to fill at RB. Everyone knows this. I have faith here.


The situation for the front seven leaves a lot to be desired. Scary.



Overall, I think we lose a slight step on both offense and defense, but there's a chance we find more of the elusive "complete game" with another off-season learning the systems. Continuity is huge. I hope we can fend off poachers.

Bulls Unlimited
I enjoy listening to Bulls Unlimited much more than watching ESPN and listening to whoever they put out there.

Great service.  Hope it continues.

Proud of this Class
I know the bar was set high and USF just missed it, but the seniors who committed to this program in its darkest hour gave us fans reason to have such high expectations and finished with back-to-back 10 win seasons, and bowl wins over P5 teams. 

Thank you, SENIORS!

TAMPA, FLA., Dec. 13, 2017 – The University of South Florida men's basketball team returns to the court on Thursday night against Bethune-Cookman. Tip-off is slated for 7 p.m. at the Sun Dome.

The Bulls got stellar performances from their post players on Monday night against Florida International but were unable to come away with a victory, dropping the contest 65-53. The Bulls' four post players (Tulio Da Silva, Isaiah Manderson, Malik Martin and Nikola Scekic) accounted for 26 of USF's 60 shots on the night and 12 of the 20 made baskets.

Manderson led the Bulls in scoring, finishing with 12 points on 6-of-8 from the field. His 12 points were two off of a career high, which he set on Dec. 2 at Appalachian State. Manderson also pulled down four rebounds.

Da Silva had one of the best rebounding performances in recent memory for the Bulls, grabbing 17 boards including five on the offensive end. The 17 rebounds are the most by an American Athletic Conference player this season and the most in a single game by a USF player since Chris Perry also had 17 on Nov. 13, 2015 against Troy.

The Bulls will be looking to snap a four-game skid, with its last victory coming on Nov. 24 against Arkansas State.

Bethune-Cookman (5-5) faces a quick turnaround after defeating Cal Poly at home in Daytona Beach on Tuesday night, 67-53. Junior guard Malik Maitland played all 40 minutes for the Wildcats in the ...

This MAN deserves his own thread.  What an effort tonight by a WR:  9 receptions for 227 yards and one of the most amazing strong-man competition TDS I’ve ever seen.  Aside from Q he was the most valuable player on the field for the Bulls tonight.  So glad we have him for another year.
