Game Day: Western Carolina

Posted: August 30, 2014 in Football

GAME ON!!

Game day is here folks! The 2014 season is upon us and in just a few hours the Bulls will take the field, hoping to start the year on a strong note. Last year was rough but it’s time to move on and look to the future. The Bulls have worked hard throughout the entire off-season and they are ready to hit the field and go to battle with Western Carolina. So everyone, enjoy your tailgates. Fire up the grills, enjoy a beverage (responsibly), and prepare yourselves. We have been waiting months for this day and it is finally here. Football is back, folks! LET’S DO SOMETHING!

The Bulls fell 2 to 0 to FGCU to start the season, starting USF to a 0-1 record to begin the year. It was a chippy game with a few yellow cards being pulled and a few questionable calls late in the game that seemed to hurt a few chances the Bulls had (just going with what I see folks).

USF led 17 to 10 on shots on goal but they couldn’t push one through despite several good looks at the net. Spasoje Stefanovic made 6 saves in his first start in the regular season and played well. The defensive back line was a little shaky at times, but Stefanovic played out of his mind and gave the Bulls all the chances to stay in this game, however, they just couldn’t get a goal through.

The Bulls will face Akron on Thursday at Corbett at 7:30 PM as they try to get the first win of the year.

The Bulls battled two of the best teams in the country and despite outstanding efforts from Erin Fairs and some of the talented freshmen, the Bulls dropped both games to both Purdue and LSU.  Read the rest of this entry »

Here we go, the 2014-15 soccer season is here for the Bulls. The Bulls, coming off of a 8-4-9 (2-2-4) are looking to make it to their 8 straight appearance in the NCAA tournament and they get things started with a game on the road at FGCU. The Bulls battled the Eagles to a 2 to 2 tie last season at Corbett Stadium. Lindo Mfeka had 2 shots on goal, Wesley Charpie added 1 assist, and Dallas Jaye (before Brentton Muhammad took over) made 2 saves.  Read the rest of this entry »

The ladies are still looking for their first win and first goal of the 2014 season.

The Bulls return home to Corbett Field, looking for their first win and the first goal of the 2014 season. USF fell 2-0 to Florida on Sunday afternoon. The game had a 2.5 hour rain delay in the middle, making for a long and tough loss on the road (game is scheduled for 7:30 PM). Navy enters the game with a 0-2 record as well, falling 2 to 1 to Uconn in their last outing. Navy went 16-5-0 last year, showing they are a strong team that is just off to a slow start.
