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.

The Bulls, 24-7, won 63 to 58 over Temple in the AAC semifinals. It was a battle, but USF held on down the stretch to win this huge victory as they advance to the AAC finals once again.  (more…)

The Bulls, 7-22 (1-17), fell 72 to 60 to Temple to close out the regular season. It’s been a tough, long year and they have at least one more game to go before it is all over.  (more…)
