Unlike Taggart, I’m not taking a new job, just kind of done with sports blogging on this platform.

I’ll keep this brief. The blog has been quiet for over a week now and honestly, when I fired TBR once again, I was not 100% into it and now after taking some time off, my energy to blog about USF is just not there. Don’t get it twisted, I love USF, but writing about them just isn’t my passion anymore. I’m focused on my other blog that is more about me and my life and the time that I have wanted to devote to writing about the Bulls is pretty low. I am still watching the games, still following along (even writing a little bit about them on my full time blog, theusfmattblog.wordpress.com if you are wondering where I’m turning my attention to), but running a USF blog is just not for me anymore.

So, this blog is going out for good. Not coming back, period. This Twitter account, @thebullrush is also going quiet. Sorry folks, I’m moving on and just changing how I operate. If you still want to follow my hot takes on USF or anything else, follow me @USFMatt for my tweets. I talk USF and everything else there.

For those who have been followers for a long time, thank you. The account will stay active for an archive and for any messages that come in, but I’m done tweeting from it. I know followers will leave, its fine. If you are fans, I hope you follow me @USFMatt moving forward.

Again, thank you again for reading the blog over the years even if it has been on and off so much. I appreciate, I really do. Just time to move on to the next chapter.

I know softball, baseball, and basketball are all in action this week, but with work and a conference to travel to in New York this week, I won’t have the time to blog. So starting today (3/6) through next Monday (3/13), this blog is going quiet with no blogs and probably no tweets from the Bull Rush account. I’ll probably be active on my personal account, @USFmatt, but not going to be talking too much sports for the week.

In fact, if you have followed me on social media on my personal account, you know I recently published a blog about blogging in general and with some time to think about it, I might be changing how I blog overall and includes sports blogging in general. I’ll have to figure it out but for now, the site is going quite while I go pay the bills this week on the road.

Andrew Perez closed out the sweep of Toledo in Sunday’s game.

The Bulls, 10-1, won 6 to 3 over Toledo, completing the 3-game sweep and extending the winning streak to 9 games for the Bulls. The pitching dominated and the offense, despite leaving 13 runners on base, got enough done in this game.  (more…)

The Bulls, 9-1, won 12 to 3 over Toledo, taking the second straight game of the series. The offense went off in the 5th inning to take this game after Toledo had taken the early lead. This team is really fun to watch.  (more…)

The Bulls, 8-1, won 4 to 3 in 13 innings over Toledo in a game that seemed to take forever. The Bulls left a ton of runners on base in this game, but despite that, were able to keep the winning streak going.  (more…)
