  1. By Joey Knight Published 14 minutes ago Updated 8 minutes ago USF has become the latest collegiate athletic department forced to enact significant budget cuts in response to the coronavirus, announcing the elimination of 30 positions Thursday. Additionally, across-the-board furloughs or pay reductions — ranging from 2%-15% — for all salaried employees have been implemented for the remainder of the fiscal year. “Today is a day I hoped would never come,” athletic director Michael Kelly said in a university statement. "But the budget realities that have
  2. By Joey Knight Published Yesterday Updated Yesterday TAMPA — An ESPNU audience likely will see Jeff Scott’s most animated version of himself Saturday night. During his debut as USF coach, Scott’s bound to pace and perspire, fist-bump, perhaps even fume. But regardless of what transpires against The Citadel, fans can bet their big screens on what he’s certain not to do. Blink. When you’ve spent nine months walking a seismic college landscape, when you’ve concurrently immersed yourself in social justice and social distance, when you’ve wept
  3. What we’ve learned from USF football preseason camp Here's what we've heard and observed after nearly a week of practices USF's offensive linemen work through a drill during practice Tuesday morning on campus. [DOUGLAS R. CLIFFORD | Times] By Joey Knight Published 7 minutes ago TAMPA — Now that the 2020 USF football preseason is nearly a week old, the goal before the Bulls has become clear. Get to two weeks. Then three. During this tenuous juncture in college football, taking things day by day has evo
  4. USF football zealot plans to persist amidst pandemic To even the most zealous fans of USF football, Suzanne Ward’s devotion remains in another realm. At least three time zones away. One of the handful of humans who has attended all 276 Bulls contests, the 56-year-old USF alumnus has flown to every game — home and away — since moving to Portland, Ore., in 2003. “Including when I worked in Asia,” said Ward, who was in the continent designing medical devices. “So I have flown from Singapore to make a football game.” And she’s not about to let a pandemic threaten her s
  5. By Joey Knight Published 2 hours ago Updated 2 hours ago USF athletics as you knew it before the coronavirus’ rampage remains intact. To this point, the Bulls haven’t been forced to lay off staffers, eliminate sports or even impose furloughs. Which isn’t to say they haven’t gone through this crisis unscathed. Athletic director Michael Kelly said Thursday that his department must trim 15 percent from its budget for the 2020-21 academic year. He has spent part of the self-isolation period collaborating with coaches and senior staffers on where the trim
  6. TBT had a fun article today on "A debate on Tampa Bay’s iconic sports numbers". Bulls were interspersed throughout with the winners being: No. 9 Quinton Flowers, USF quarterback (2014-17) Tyler Johnson, Lightning forward (2012-present) Flowers is arguably the most dynamic football player in USF’s 23-season history given his multi-dimensional ability, though he has been snake-bitten so far as a pro. Johnson is a speedy spark plug who has played a key role for most of seven-plus seasons, usually in a complementary role, though he stepped into the spotlight during the 201
  7. Joey makes a case for pretty much the unthinkable, a chance for USF MBB to go Dancing ....
  8. USF defensive coordinator: tackling greatly improved Brian-Jean Mary says his unit’s tackling is “probably the best thing we’ve done so far in camp.” By Joey Knight Published August 7 ... "I think our run defense is sounder than it was last year. Guys understand where they need to be and they’re straining to get there, and I think our tackling has been probably the best thing we’ve done so far in camp. “I know we struggled, we missed tackles last year, and we haven’t been in a scrimmage yet ... but I really believe we’re
  9. By Ryan Kolakowski Published Yesterday TAMPA ― Tailback Trevon Sands hasn’t had the straightforward career he once envisioned at USF. He never has reached the depth chart’s top rung, toiling behind 1,000-yard rushers Marlon Mack and Jordan Cronkrite, among others. He committed to USF under former coach Willie Taggart, and stuck with the Bulls when Taggart departed for Oregon after the 2016 season. He enters his final season with 180 yards on 45 attempts, and more offensive coordinators (three) than career starts (two). Despite
  10. By Eduardo A. Encina Published 2 hours ago TAMPA — Statues honoring football heroes are usually erected outside stadiums — and certainly there’s no one more deserving to be bronzed in front of Raymond James Stadium than Lee Roy Selmon. That Selmon’s statue was unveiled Friday morning in downtown Tampa, far away from the Bucs stadium or USF, pays true homage to the man’s contributions beyond football. The 8-foot cast bronze statue, which is at the corner of Florida and Brorein in the shadow of the Selmon Expressway, says enough in its desi
  11. The Bulls coach is nearing 1,000 wins, and perhaps an Olympic coaching gig. By Joey Knight Updated March 22 TAMPA — No nook or crevice is wasted in USF softball coach Ken Eriksen’s cozy second-floor office, where a hearty assortment of mementos, knickknacks and photos have come to roost. Hats and helmets abound, as do plaques and trophies and trinkets. Hanging stately on one wall is a framed USF jersey bearing Eriksen’s name and No. 732, presented after a 2013 triumph against Seton Hall, when he became the school’s winningest coach in any s
  12. Coach Charlie Strong says fans will see a bigger, faster, stronger team in 2019. New offensive coordinator Kerwin Bell takes in his first USF spring practice.(OCTAVIO JONES | Times) By Joey Knight Published Yesterday TAMPA ― In the immediate wake of last season’s dreadful finish, marked by offensive stagnation, shoddy tackling and inner strife, USF coach Charlie Strong knew he had to make significant changes. Starting with Charlie Strong. “I start with myself, then go with the assistant coaches, and the players are always last
  13. By Joey Knight Published Yesterday TAMPA ― Everything about the Pompano Beach point guard, from his surname to his stats to the state title he helped capture for Ely High, seemed conspicuous. Yet to major-college recruits, Laquincy Rideau may as well have been the name of a New Orleans gourmet. “He was overlooked,” said legendary Ely coach Melvin Randall, who has won six of his Florida-record eight state titles with the Tigers. “Plain overlooked.” No other rationale sufficiently explains how Rideau’s staggering debut as USF poin
  14. By Joey Knight Published Yesterday At this rate, the American Athletic Conference's Freshman of the Week award might be re-named in Alexis Yetna's honor. The Bulls' 6-foot-8 redshirt freshman has won it for the fourth time, two days after recording his league-leading 10th double-double (career-best 28 points, 13 rebounds) in USF’s 77-57 victory Saturday at East Carolina. Yetna also earned the honor on Dec. 17, Dec. 24 and Jan. 14. Rest of article
  15. Even I don't remember Leon Smith .... By Joey Knight Published Yesterday Only 19 games into his USF career, redshirt junior Laquincy Rideau already has drawn comparisons to the best point guards in program history. Soon, he’ll have a statistical argument to bolster his fledgling case. Rideau enters Saturday’s game at East Carolina (4 p.m., ESPNU) with 62 steals. With seven more, he breaks the Bulls' 45-year-old single-season record held by Hillsborough High alumnus Leon Smith. Rest of story
  16. By Joey Knight Published Yesterday Updated Yesterday ST. PETERSBURG ― Suddenly, Bulls fans have a reason to tune in to Saturday’s East-West Shrine Game. Two of them, in fact. CB Mazzi Wilkins, who made 21 starts over the past two seasons, confirmed Wednesday he’s a late addition to the East roster. As a result, USF will have at least one representative in the contest for the 12th consecutive year. Until Wilkins' arrival, rangy former Bulls TE Kano Dillon was the contest’s only player with a USF connection. Dillon, on the
  17. Published: October 19, 2018 Heralded Bulls 6-foot-8 sophomore Alexis Yetna, whose collegiate debut already has been delayed one year by the NCAA, potentially faces another brief postponement. Second-year men's coach Brian Gregory said Yetna, who played on France's under-20 national team two summers ago, is nursing a hyper-extended elbow suffered two weeks before preseason practice began. Thursday afternoon's practice was the first in which he was cleared to engage in contact. Additionally, 6-7 freshman Madut Akec of Bradenton's Victory Rock Prep
  18. Published: October 19, 2018 TAMPA — There's no skirting the laws of physics and gravity. All kickers, regardless of the amount of horsepower harnessed in their respective quads and calves, have a ceiling. For most, it's a sobering reality. For USF walk-on Coby Weiss, it was a jubilant one. He encountered it Friday night, after a 22-yard field goal he had made hundreds of times in his sleep. Weiss' head smacked it repeatedly as euphoric Bulls teammates hoisted his 160-pound body upward in the congested visitors locker room at Tulsa. For
  19. full article Bulls redshirt junior RT Marcus Norman, who started all 12 games last season, has been named to the watch list for the Outland Trophy, which recognizes the nation's top interior lineman. Norman becomes the second USF player named to a national watch list this preseason, joining TE Mitch Wilcox (Mackey Award).
  20. We have had some threads discussing baseball this season but not much about softball. Seems like they are in a good position to take the conference and possibly host a regional, although their RPI sits at 40. Softball battles Witchita State this weekend with AAC top spot up for grabs. Baseball is idle this week. () May madness beckons for USF baseball, softball
  21. Turns out, USF's spring game may have answered the Bulls' most pressing question after all. One might even suggest Saturday's proceedings left no room for doubt. An on-campus stadium probably wouldn't nudge the needle in terms of attendance. And you thought we were talking about the quarterbacks. Nope, just the ones who choose — or don't choose — to come watch them. full article Does the lack of spring game attendance mean that an OCS would not help attendance?
  22. DT Deadrin Senat While the projections of where Senat gets drafted vary wildly, there's a consensus among the mock-ups that he'll be the first Bull taken. Senat was un-blockable down the stretch in 2017 (three sacks alone in the Birmingham Bowl), propelling him into the collective consciousness of scouts during the all-star and combine season, where his stock didn't appear to diminish. We're erring on the side of optimism and saying Senat will hear his name called shortly after noon Saturday. Projected round: 4 WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling We see Valdes-Scantling, who possesses the gre
