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 evolved from platitude to prerequisite. Until the season stabilizes or stops, it’s all the Bulls can do.

“You can’t look too far into the future, because the future is unknown,” defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer said Tuesday. “It’s just live where our feet are planted that day.”

So far, we’ve been privy to three of the Bulls’ five workouts, none of which have come with a tomorrow attached. Here’s what we’ve learned so far about Jeff Scott’s inaugural team.

* As expected, the sophisticated pro-style attack of former offensive coordinator Kerwin Bell has been supplanted by wunderkind Charlie Weis Jr.‘s brisk, modernized system. A protege of Lane Kiffin (among many others), Weis’ FAU offense ranked 14th nationally in scoring (36.4 ppg) and averaged 5.96 yards per play in 2019.

“Both had explosive playbooks, but I’ll say this (offense) is a mixture between a Clemson-Alabama, Lane Kiffin-type of offense, and Coach Bell was more of a pro-style type of deal,” quarterback Jordan McCloud said.

“This is like, go fast, we’re trying to score every play, tempo, lot of plays throughout the game.”  Continue Reading

    "There is no inherent fear among this group of players. The fear of failing drove the program from day one - the fear of failing the coaches, the fan base, the university, each teammate, themselves. Now, as we head into the biggest game in our history at home on a national stage against the highest ranked team to step on OUR field, the players are taking an introspective look at themselves. Unfortunately, I don't know if they get it. They lack the fear."
