After starting the season 0-4 before AAC play, the South Florida Bulls hosted 3-1 Cincinnati in a game they were expected to lose. Thanks to two first half touchdowns on defense and special teams, the Bulls built an early lead and held on despite a poor overall performance on offense. But their defense was tenacious especially in the first half, which led to a few big performances...
For the first time in the USF program, the Bulls have lost the first four games of the season and there has been little improvement over the course of the season to think things are a changin’, but they play the games for a reason and this week the mighty Bearcats of the University of Cincinnati come into town.

Happy Friday everyone. We are talking even more USF with the student radio voice of the Bulls, Josh Appel. He's also an intern for their website. It is very safe to say that I didn't ask him anything that would get him fired. But I did ask him a lot of questions about USF to get everyone ready for the game tomorrow night.
Be sure to follow Josh on twitter. My questions...

To say that things didn’t really go well today for USF would be an understatement. The Bulls were dismantled by Miami, 49-21, in a game that wasn’t even as close as the score indicates. The low point came near the end of the first half, when sophomore punter Mattias Ciabatti let off – wait for it – a 2-yard punt. ESPN felt compelled to add blooper music to the background...

With no clear cut leader in the quarterback race for the South Florida Bulls in 2013, Matt Floyd is trying to take advantage of the opportunity presented in front of himself, while trying to improve certain aspects of his game and limiting his mistakes along with it.
Coming off last season, sophomore defensive end Eric Lee had a few goals he wanted to accomplish before the 2013 season. Starting five games as a true freshman, the thicker Lee is ready to wreck havoc with the deep defensive front of the Bulls.
It's 3 a.m. Do you know where your football players are?
