Going to make this real quick, all of the USF blogs will be moving over to a new blog platform, Matt of Mind. The blogs are not going to change, this Twitter account is going to continue tweeting about everything USF, it’s just a different platform. I know, I have done this before, but it’s how I am moving forward with my blogs. Hope you follow along!

Side note, each USF post that is on the blog will have TBR at the beginning of each title to help readers find all of the USF blogs that will be flowing on the blog.

Real short blog tonight. Starting Monday the blog coverage is going to change, not going away, I promise you that (I’m back full time in this game). The blogs will be coming from a new platform. The blogs will be in the same format, will still be coming from this Twitter account, and will continue to be published nearly every day as the program battles it out and the football coverage continues. It will just be from a new home.

So for the rest of the weekend (including this evening with baseball and softball), the blogs will be on this platform. On Monday, the blogs will move to their new home and tweets will come from here with links to that new blog.

Yeah, more change, but it’s going to be the same coverage, so please don’t thrown tomatoes at me just yet.

It’s that time of the year where you do not want to hear about your football program or players in the news because it usually means something bad has happened. Well, something bad has happened over the past 12 hours.

Per the Tampa Bay Times and multiple local media outlets, junior defensive end LaDarrius Jackson, has been arrested (being held on no bond at this time) on charges of sexual battery and false imprisonment.

Jackson appeared in 7 games last year as a reserve, recording 3 tackles in limited playing time.

Again, I really didn’t want to put this into a blog, but it’s in the news, it happened, and should at least be mentioned. Side note, while these two incidents are not related at all, this is the second player in the past month to be arrested.

A third Bull heard his name called on Saturday in the 6th round (212 overall) of the NFL draft as the Green Packers took offensive lineman Kofi Amichia. The two year starter at left tackle is projected to move inside to the guard position and has the size and skill set to make it happen. Having Kofi protect Aaron Rodgers is fun to think about.

Amichia is the third Bull to be taken today after Marlon Mack (Colts) and Rodney Adams (Vikings) were taken earlier in the day.

The second USF player of the day has been taken in the 5th round (170th overall) with wide receiver Rodney Adams going to the Minnesota Vikings. The speedy receiver could be a fun one to watch for the Vikings with his ability to accelerate after the watch, the ability to get to the edge on the jet sweep, and the potential to be a return threat at the next level. I wish Rodney the best moving forward.

Well, it took longer than many had projected, but Marlon Mack has been selected in the 4th round of the 2017 Draft (143 overall) by the Indianapolis Colts. Many had projected Mack to be a possible 2nd or 3rd round pick, but after several running backs went before him, Mack had to wait till day 3 to hear his name called. This is a great place for Mack with Andrew Luck in the backfield with him and the chance for early playing time because of the Colts’ need for a running back. I can’t wait to see what Mack does and wish him nothing but the best moving forward with his pro career.

The Bulls completed their spring game over a week ago and everyone has been weighing in one some of their concerns the team is facing entering the 2017 season. Well, I wanted to add my two cents to the mix as the summer months draw closer. Here are three areas that I am most worried about moving forward.  (more…)
