No. 23 USF looks to stay perfect at Tulsa

This entry was posted in News on by .


TAMPA, Fla. – The USF Bulls head on the road Friday night to take on conference foe Tulsa. USF is in full conference mode and completed their non-conference schedule without a loss. USF is undefeated.

Follow this. The complete details.

USF is undefeated. It’s a fact. USF is also not even close to being a really good football team. Not yet. And that is also a fact. Some of you will throw your hands up or shake your head and say ‘Torello loves UCF! I follow him on Twitter! He always says good things about UCF!’ You’re not wrong that I think UCF is a great team. But you are wrong if you think I actually like the Knights, or any team for that matter. My job isn’t to root for anyone it is to report on what happens and to give my opinion.’

My opinion is that USF will lose a game soon. I do not expect it to be Friday night or next week against the former Fightin’ Bob Diaco’s (UConn), but the Bulls will lose a game and then the question becomes if they falter again before UCF on Black Friday. The offense does not look totally in sync. As senior wide receiver Tyre McCants said: ‘I think a lot of guys are afraid to make a mistake in the 1st half but in the 2nd half we just buy in. We just need to buy in from the beginning.’ McCants did add he does not think there is a focus issue, but just a matter of going full tilt from the start of a game.’

Since completing the 2,000-square foot house he designed and built on Dog Island in 2003, Bradlee Shanks always wondered how it would stand up during a hurricane.

The house was passing the test, although the hurricane experience was proving to be a bit more forceful than what he expected.

‘I always wanted to see how my house performed in a hurricane and it’s performed marvelously,’ said Shanks, an art professor at the University of South Florida.
