Badger Opposition Research: 2014 USF post-spring edition

After looking at Big Ten newcomer Rutgers yesterday, it’s time to go back to the non-conference schedule and look at the final opponent outside of the Big Ten — South Florida (a.k.a. USF).

Badgers expect a heavy dose of South Florida RB Mack

MADISON, Wis. -- South Florida running back Marlon Mack is a man of few words, so his head coach's longstanding policy of withholding freshmen from media sessions probably is for the best. If Mack were made available now, the attention descending upon him would be substantial. That's because Mack, a true freshman from Sarasota, Fla., has become the focal point of the Bulls' rushing...

Opposition Research: Scouting the South Florida offense

Yesterday we gave you a glimpse at the South Florida Bulls’ defense. Today we realize that the South Florida offense is a one-trick pony at this point. A very good one-trick pony, but the rest of the offense needs some serious work. Running back Marlon Mack is perhaps one of the top freshman backs in the country, at least in terms of overall production. The problem is, quarterback...
