The coverage isn’t changing, just moving to a new home.

Hello USF fans. As I mentioned yesterday, the blog platform could be moving to a new site. Well, I have decided to make it official. This blog will no longer be posting anything. All of the USF coverage that I write will be on the new platform:

The twitter handle, @thebullrush, will remain active as always and will cover and talk USF all the time. My personal twitter, @usfmatt, will have the USF tweets as well but will cover and tweet about everything else. I am keeping the bull rush twitter active because it has served as a great platform for so long and it would be a shame to close it down.

So, starting today with the game coverage for the USF vs. ECU game will be on the new site.

I want to thank everyone that has taken their time to read the posts on this blog. Its been fun to have a full USF blog but I want to talk about other sports and decided to move it all together to one site. The USF coverage won’t be changing. It will still be constant, accurate, and as always, the honest truth. I hope you follow along to the new site moving forward.

Possible change coming to the blog

Time to put on the work gloves, some changes might be coming to this blog and another.


For a long time, I have used this blog platform to post all about USF sports and everything that happens on Fowler Avenue. We have shared in the highs and lows during that time, but I think some change might be coming to this blog and for another blog platform.  Read the rest of this entry »

Happy New Year!

Posted: January 1, 2015 in Fun

Happy New Year, USF family! The 2015 year is here after a very memorable 2014 year. Last year we saw a new athletic director take over. A new men’s basketball coach take over and a new coach take over the baseball program as well. There were highs and lows, but it all made for lasting memories. It was a very interesting year and I’m sure 2015 will be just as entertaining as last year. I hope everyone had a great New Year’s eve and day and enters the 2015 year with renewed energy and enthusiasm. Let’s make 2015 the best yet!

The Bulls dropped an ugly game to SMU, falling 83 to 49. The loss puts USF at 6-8 (0-1) on the year after this 39-point defeat. USF has lost 7 of the last 8 as the offense continues to stall during this rough stretch.  Read the rest of this entry »

USF WBB rolls past Memphis

Posted: December 31, 2014 in Basketball

The Bulls improved to 11-3 (2-0) with a 72 to 39 win over Memphis. USF jumped out to a big lead in the first half and never looked back, getting contributions from everyone on the roster. This was a very impressive win for Coach Fernandez and company. Read the rest of this entry »

Per report – There is a report from the Oregonian that running back coach Telly Lockette is headed to Oregon State to join new head coach Gary Andersen and his staff. Lockette joined the USF staff back in 2013 after serving as the head coach at Miami Central HS from 2008 to 2012. Lockette had been regarded as one of the top recruiters for Coach Taggart’s staff and now the program will have to replace him.

USF recently just hired coach Danny Hope as the offensive line coach/co-offensive coordinator and added coach Tom Allen from Ole Miss as the new defensive coordinator. USF still has not hired a new defensive backs coach to replace coach Ron Cooper and now has another void on the staff to hire.

USF, 6-7,  is on the road to start AAC play as they take on SMU (game begins at 5 PM). The Bulls have lost 6 of their last 7 and it won’t get any easier with the Mustangs. SMU is 9-3 on the year, including an 8-1 mark at home. This could be a very tough game for the young Bulls and Coach Antigua.  Read the rest of this entry »
