Memorial Day

Posted: May 30, 2016 in Uncategorized

Hello USF family. Today is Memorial Day. Take a moment and understand what this day is all about as we honor all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe. The blog won’t be posting anything else today, but will be back to normal on Tuesday as I get back to work.


It’s go time.

The Bulls, 44-14, are in the NCAA tournament as they head to Tallahassee to begin the regional rounds. They will be facing off against South Carolina, 36-21, in the first game (game begins at noon tomorrow). It’s a rematch from 2014 when the Bulls were last in the tournament. Time to go to work.  (more…)

Reviewing the units: Special teams

Posted: December 10, 2014 in Uncategorized

At the beginning of the year, I graded each unit heading into the season. The grade reflected the returning talent and what kind of year I expected the group to have. Now that the season is over, its time to go back, re-evaluate everything and re-grade each unit. Let’s get it started.

The special teams unit returned both the starting punter and kicker this year. USF had to introduce a new long snapper, but it went well overall with very few issues. Let’s evaluate the unit and see how they grade at the end of the season. (more…)

Game Day: UCF

Posted: November 28, 2014 in Uncategorized

It’s senior day for the Bulls and the last game of the year for the Bulls. They are playing an early one with a noon kickoff against the school up I-4, UCF. USF lost by 3 points last year on the road in Orlando. The Bulls will want to return the favor in the last game of the year (hopefully the turkey won’t slow them down from yesterday). Will the Bulls come out strong in this game or will the Knights strike first and throw the Bulls off for the rest of the game? Its been an up and down year for USF and in the final game, let’s hope there is one more up in them.

USF volleyball takes on Memphis

Posted: November 26, 2014 in Uncategorized

As the regular season come to an end, the Bulls will be playing their first of the last two games to close out the 2014 season at home. USF, 13-17 (7-11) will try to add a few more wins before the year ends but it won’t be easy with 22-10 (12-6) Memphis in town. The Tigers beat USF ins 3 straight sets back on October 19 (game begins at 7 PM).  (more…)

USF fell to NC State 68 to 65, giving the Bulls their first loss of the year (3-1). USF had two players go down with injuries, Troy Holston and Dinero Mercurius, and did not have Ruben Guerrero again, but they still battled tough on the road.

USF shot 48% from the field in the game and had just 10 total turnovers. They were out-rebounded 33 to 40, something they have to work and improve on, but considering they battled foul trouble and had injuries, it was a very valiant effort from Coach Antigua and his young team.

Nehemias Morillo had 11 points and 7 rebounds. Chris Perry had 10 points and 5 rebounds before he fouled out. Anthony Collins had 8 points, 8 assists (2 turnovers) and had 4 rebounds. Corey Allen Jr. had 14 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists while dealing with foul trouble. Jaleel Cousins had 6 points but just 1 rebound and a block (has to get more aggressive and find his game inside the paint). Bo Zeigler had 9 points and 5 rebounds. Dinero Mercurius had 5 points and Holston had 2 points before they both went down with injury.

This team is still very young, inexperienced and now banged up a bit but man, they are fun to watch. The offense is clicking, defense is improving slowly, and they shoot all over and run. Its more energetic and Coach Antigua is just getting started with this program. The Bulls will return home to face Hofstra on Tuesday night (game begins at 7 PM) as they try to rebound after this game.

USF MBB takes on NC State

After an overtime win at UAB, the Bulls (3-0) are back on the road as they take on NC State (3-0). The Wolfpack are averaging 82 PPG and go with a 3-guard lineup, running the court and shooting it from all over the place. USF will have to keep pace if they want to get the win in this game (game begins at 4 PM).  (more…)
