Phil Steele review of #32 USF for 2016

OFFENSE- The Gulf Coast offense returns 93% of their yards gained from 2015. Their 5,741 yds were a school record as were their 3,205 rush yards. QB Flowers, RB Mack and WR Adams are all at the top of the AAC, the big question is the O-line which returns just 2 starters but that was the case in '15 as well. My computer (pg 43) calls for them to top LY's 442 ypg!

DEFENSE - USF has their 3rd DC in 3 years as Tom Allen left for Indiana. New DC Woodie does have 7 returning starters to work with including 7 of the top 9 tacklers. USF's defense was #13 in tfl in '15. They do lose 4 of the front 7 but with 7 of the top 9 tacklers back and keeping the same schemes (1st time 4 years), they should be just as good.

2016- USF won 7 of their last 8 regular season games LY and want to build on that momentum with 14 ret st'rs and most of their top players back. On the downside, they rate a -5.0 in my Stock Market Indicator (pg 32) & LY benefitted from +10 in TO's and were +4 net upsets. USF will also go from the hunter to the hunted as they must face Cincy, Memphis and Temple on the road as well as Florida St and Northern Illinois in non-conf play. USF ranks in the top 4 of my ratings at every position in the AAC and their 2 trips to the North are both early in the year, so they should avoid cold weather. They do pull Navy and Memphis out of the West but avoid Houston. Taggart has bagged the top recruiting class in the AAC the last 2 years and will try to build on the momentum of LY's 4-1 finish down the stretch. They have the advantage of having bowl practices for the first time s/'10. They are a clear contender in the AAC East and despite many of my key indicators pointing down, they have the talent to improve their record.

Make sure you update your computer to Windows 98 and are using the latest version of Netscape to view its full potential!

What's Netscape, sounds cool. I'm still waiting on my BBS to download it. Stupid 2400Kb modem.
