  2. Kind of a puff piece but still nice to see local attention for the Bulls. https://www.baynews9.com/fl/tampa/sports/2019/04/23/former-usf-rb-mack-flourishing-in-nfl-career
  3. The Marlon Mack thread made me think of that legit three headed monster from a few years back and what the heck was going on with Quinton Flowers these days. A few excerpts and links for the cuirous: Sounds like Q has a chance but the Bengals aren't going to take a risk of a banged up Bernard and a UDFA Flowers behind Mixon...looking for another backup which would squeeze Q.
  4. BULLS STRENGTHEN PROGRAM BOND AT USF FOOTBALL ALUMNI REUNION April 19, 2019 By TOM ZEBOLDUSF Senior WriterTAMPA, APRIL 18, 2019 – More than 70 Bulls who helped lay the foundation for the program were welcomed back to campus with open arms last weekend during the USF Football Reunion.USF inaugural 1997 season team members Edwin Greene, Keith Williams, Bryan Freese, Emerson Morris, Anthony Williams, Brian McNulty, Marshall Smith, Mike Sandy and David Thompson had a blast spending time with Bulls from all the way up to the 2018 roster at the reunion banquet last Friday evening inside the Lee Roy Selmon Athletics Center. Chad Barnhardt, USF's first-ever starting quarterback, and Jay Mize (Bulls DB from 1997-2000) joined the group at the USF Spring Game last Saturday at Corbett Stadium."Getting everybody back and everybody excited about the football program, I think it's going to do wonders," said former star defensive end George Selvie, who played six NFL seasons after setting the USF career sacks record with 29. The attendance list was loaded with more household program names like Nate Allen, Sam Barrington, B.J. Daniels, S.J. Green, Nigel Harris, Amarri Jackson, Mike Jenkins, Taurus Johnson, Jerome Murphy, Auggie Sanchez, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kayvon Webster, Carlton Williams and Kion Wilson among many others."The crowd is so big right now," said Jenkins, a USF defensive back from 2005-07 who went on to play eight seasons in the NFL. "You've got guys from 2003. You have guys that are from 2018 in here. It's just beautiful to see everybody come together to just kind of talk and reminisce."Webster, a standout USF cornerback from 2009-12, was one of numerous Bulls football alums who stayed for the spring game on Saturday. Prior to watching the current squad, the six-year NFL veteran and Super Bowl 50 champion was excited to catch up with familiar faces at the reunion event hosted by the Bulls Club."I haven't seen some of these guys in years, since I graduated from USF in 2013," Webster said.Webster was one of 17 current or former pro players to attend the unforgettable reunion event. Among that group was current Toronto Argonauts wideout S.J. Green, a USF standout from 2003-06 who has racked up 9,183 receiving yards and 56 touchdowns in 12 seasons in the Canadian Football League."It's an awesome event to see all the former Bulls players, coaches and some administrative guys all in the same place at the same time," Green said. "It just brings back a lot of good memories. It's a great place to be right now." All the former players in attendance received many words of appreciation from Vice President of Athletics Michael Kelly and head coach Charlie Strong, who was accompanied by the Bulls current coaching staff. Kelly made sure to mention each Bull had a hand in helping the program become the fastest Florida program to reach 150 wins, which brought back memories of many big-time victories.One popular game in conversations was USF's upset win over No. 5 West Virginia back in 2007. Starting free safety Allen made a game-high 11 tackles and had two takeaways in the Bulls' landmark victory. To this day, Allen still gets excited about the rowdy crowd of 67,018 that packed Raymond James Stadium on the memorable Friday night in Tampa."Ray Jay was sold out. It was a night game on ESPN," said Allen, who is retired from football after playing eight NFL seasons. "I remember after we won, the crowd and the students stormed the field. I'll never forget that feeling. There were people falling over the wall, getting down onto the field, and it really felt like a big-time college (game). It was awesome."Three weeks after that win, USF was ranked No. 2 nationally and the Bulls from that team are still proud about strengthening the Bulls' brand across the country."Being that type of team that was the underdog, we just rose up," Selvie said. "It was just a great story for this program."Although it wasn't a monumental victory on the field, last Friday's reunion was an important moment for USF football. From now on, past players – no matter their era – know they have an open invitation to come back, as Strong reiterated in front of the large, united group."This is definitely a special moment for USF history," said Kion Wilson, who made 171 tackles as a Bulls linebacker from 2008-09. "… Getting the guys back together - the foundation of this organization, the guys who've kind of paved the way – I think it's just a great opportunity for everybody to be together and share this moment."

  6. An injury ended his football dreams. His strong arm rekindled his baseball ones with Marlins- Full story Tommy Eveld was one injury — one dislodged helmet — from taking over at quarterback for the University of South Florida. The year was 2012.
  7. Theres been a lot of talk about him making the big league pen this offseason.
  8. Some talk about jimmy Herget making the big league club and starting the year in the reds bullpen https://www.redreporter.com/2019/1/23/18193826/2019-red-reporter-community-prospect-rankings-mike-siani-is-12 Jimmy Herget, 25, RHP Highest 2018 Level: AAA (Louisville) Eye-Poppingest Fact: 9.8 K/9, 3.2 BB/9, 3.10 K/BB ratio Most Worrisome Fact: He’s not overpowering, and he’s not the flashiest of prospects. Alias(es): Drink To Herget, Jimmy Eat World, Jimmy Hertron BB-Ref Page Usually, relievers don’t get hyped up that much and there’s pretty good reason for it. One, most relievers are failed starters that get their stuff to play up in the pen. So, there’s already a level of disappointment. Two, they usually only pitch an inning at a time and for a while were an afterthought in baseball. However, in today’s game relievers are as important as ever and are starting to make more and more noise in prospect settings. While many of the Reds reliever “prospects” haven’t really panned out, and we’ve watched them get slammed in major league games, Herget looks like he could be a guy that busts that trend. Jimmy Herget was drafted in the 6th round of the 2015 draft, and since a brief stint in Billings his first year, he’s been meandering around the high minors. He hasn’t made his debut (most likely because of 40 man liabilities) but he’s done exceptionally well since being drafted. The difference between Herget and a lot of pitchers is that Herget was drafted as a reliever and the Reds actually didn’t tinker with him. It’s even more weird because before that he spent three years as a starter in South Florida. He’s reliably pitched sixty innings a year while putting up good peripherals and getting guys out. Herget has a fastball that reaches 97 with good control and he can throw it from three different arm angles. This is deadly for a reliever because batters already have so many limited looks at you that it ups the deception factor dramatically. He couples that fastball with an above average slider that he uses as a put away pitch and a below average change up that he uses to keep hitters honest. To be frank, it’s probably his lack of a real third pitch that kept the Reds from trying him as a starter. With all of those different arm angles and a herky-jerky motion, Herget can cause some serious headaches with hitters. There’s a real good chance he starts the year out of the pen with the Reds. He is also still listed on the 40-man roster as he heads towards spring training http://m.reds.mlb.com/cin/roster/40-man/
  9. Jason Pierre-Paul talks emotional journey to NFL stardom By: Luke Easterling | 7 minutes ago Every NFL player has a different story, and you’d be hard-pressed to find one more unique than that of Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. From barely playing football until 11th grade, to bouncing around between junior colleges and starring at USF, to being a first-round pick and nearly ending his career with a freak accident, Pierre-Paul has traveled a winding road. The first Bucs defender to tally double-digit sacks in a season since 2005, Pierre-Paul navigated a wide range of emotions while discussing his journey with Casey Phillips of Buccaneers.com:
  10. Sounds like he may have won the job. On the Stallions web site, there is an older story (Jan 10) about him backing up Josh Woodrum. Salt Lake opens up season in Arizona against the AZ Hotshots. I may have to go check in on BJ.

  13. Greatest All-Time Memphis Grizzlies: Chucky Atkins by Brendan Smart The Memphis Grizzlies have changed several players careers, and coming in at number 21 on our All-Time list is former guard Chucky Atkins. Memphis has been the stopping ground for numerous players who need to re-create their game, and Chucky Atkins was just another guy who found himself in the 901. Atkins had two of his best seasons in the NBA in his two seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies. Averaging a two of his highest seasons in the NBA in points and overall court action. Link I don't care if it's the Grizzlies or not....was nice to stumble over a recent basketball article on Chucky.
  14. "The following is a guest post written by White Sox left-handed pitching prospect Andrew Perez: When the term “professional baseball player” comes up in conversation, I often get asked about the exciting games, big crowds, and how “cool” it would be to someday get the chance to play in “The Show.” However, no one has ever shown interest in learning what it takes to actually make it there."

  17. Think I just heard on Phoenix radio that Nigel Harris made the AZ Cardinals practice squad.
  18. I didn't get to see it, but checking stats was happy to see: Does not look like Hector got action. If he did, he did not register a stat that I can see. Anyone get to see Deadrin in action Thursday night?
