Analyzing FAU: Special Teams

Posted: September 10, 2013 in Football

Special teams are always important and for the reeling Bulls, they need every play they can to try to get a win.  Let’s see what they are facing with the Owls special teams units.  (more…)


Meet the coaches: FAU

The Bulls return home to face a coaching staff that is led by the younger brother of Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini, Carl Pelini.  Both teams are struggling early in the year, so it will be interesting to see which staff can prep their team for this game. (more…)

Know thy Enemy: FAU

Posted: September 9, 2013 in Football

The Bulls return home to face FAU, a team they have faced several times in program history, holding the edge over them 3-0.  The Owls are off to a rough start this season, coming in 0-2 and failing to get anything moving on offense.  This could be a good chance for the Bulls to get their first win of the season.  (more…)

Welp, USF is now 0-2 to start the season.  The defense, after getting gashed by McNeese State came to play in this one, but the offense couldn’t do anything against the stout MSU defense.  MSU scored 14 points with defense while their offense failed to do much, but it still stings seeing how far the Bulls have to go.

Game Day: Michigan State

Game two, and what a game it will be for USF.  After getting our butts handed to us from McNeese State, the Bulls are on the road against the tough Spartans of Michigan State.  MSU is a very good team, bringing a top notch defense and power run game that could flatten USF is they don’t come out with energy and focus that Coach Taggart has been preaching they need.

USF got beat up pretty bad last Saturday and after a full week, it’s time for them to respond.  Which team will we see, a team that is focused and ready to prove they have learned and come a long way since the defeat, or will we see the same old story again.  Will we see our team come out, get down by a score or two and hang their heads and just hand the victory over without a fight?  I want to see this team battle.  No one is really giving USF a chance, but they do have one.  Let’s see what they do and what kind of heart this group has.

This is going to be a huge game for the Bulls.  After getting embarrassed at home, they have a lot to do to right the ship.  Hitting the road and facing a team no one is giving a chance against will wake them up.  Here are some ways they could win this game, but also a lot of ways they could fall again.  (more…)
