TAMPA - With USF's starting linebackers set for this season, defensive coordinator Wally Burnham is also confident he has found two ends after losing four linemen to graduation and transfer Frank Harry to homesickness.

Burnham said sophomore Josh Julmiste and redshirt freshman George Selvie will start at the ends, though he is concerned about the tackles.

"It's still early, so we don't really have any standouts yet,' Burnham said Saturday.

Burnham said candidates for tackles include senior Tavarious Robinson, who had 20 tackles and 11/2 sacks in 2005, and junior Allen Cray. Also in the mix is Florida transfer Julian Riley.

QBs NEED WORK: After practice, coach Jim Leavitt said the quarterback position is "inconsistent, but working hard." Leavitt also said senior Pat Julmiste and redshirt freshman Matt Grothe are "all even" in the starting-position race and both "need a lot of work."

THIS AND THAT: Matt Simms, brother of Bucs quarterback Chris Simms, committed to Louisville, according to insidetheville.com. Simms considered USF among his final choices. . . . Linebacker Josh Smiley broke his left foot and is out two to three weeks. ... Running back Walt Smith, who missed Friday's practice due to academics, was back for both practices.

I think this is great ! We are VERY young at End, we knew that coming in, but for Wally to be happy with these 2 at this early stage makes me feel better. And would have to feel good about our DT's ... we have real good depth here and seems we are sorting out who will get the starting spots.

Go BULLS !!!
