Looking back on the weekend in college football

November 29, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Thursday, 4 a.m. 5 Observations 1. They weren’t Chip Kelly bad. They weren’t Chad Morris bad. But you could certainly list FSU as among the nation’s most disappointing teams. Why? From 2014-2017, the Seminoles were 4th, 3rd, 3rd and sixth in the nation in recruiting. That ought to translate into something, shouldn’t it? 2. I […]

UCF doesn’t need Milton to clobber USF

November 24, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Saturday, 2 a.m. Rolling the tape. A little more. A little more. There. That’s it. That’s the moment where USF should have called off its season. It was Oct. 20, an eternity ago in the life of a backpeddling football team. At the time, USF had held on for a 38-30 win over UConn. The […]

Looking back on the weekend of college football

November 21, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Wednesday, 4 a.m. 5 Observations 1. I think UCF scores, and scores again, and scores some more. They will score so many points their extra point kicker will beg for mercy. 2. Aren’t perceptions amazing? A year ago, FSU lost six games and Florida lost seven, but for some reason, the expectations of FSU were […]

USF’s collapse includes blowing a lead against Temple

November 18, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Sunday, 2 a.m. Did you believe in the good start? Did you believe in the early lead? Did you believe in the defense playing well If you have been watching the USF Bulls play lately, you probably didn’t believe in any of it. Lately, the Bulls have been walking on thin limbs with heavy loads, […]

Looking back at college football’s weekend

November 15, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Thursday, 4 a.m. 5 Observations 1. Charlie Strong says that USF, a program in reverse, isn’t big enough nor deep enough. So now Willie Taggert has to feel bad about that, too? He’s in control of two slumping teams. 2. Most of the impact made by the Florida schools in their heyday was because of […]

USF defense exposed in lopsided defeat

October 28, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Sunday, 3 a.m. For most of the season, the fears have been out there. For most of their journey, the USF Bulls were living on borrowed time. Saturday, the porous defense of the Bulls finally caught up with them. The Bulls were blown off the field by an unstoppable Houston team, 57-36. USF gave up […]

USF escapes with another close victory

October 21, 2018 general

Sunday, 3 a.m. If it was a fish, you’d throw it back. It wasn’t big enough to eat. It wasn’t impressive enough to mount. All it all, it wasn’t special enough to keep. All that the USF Bulls can say about Saturday night’s opponents, the befuddled University of Connecticut, was that outlasted them. USF won, […]

Looking back on last weekend in college football

October 18, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Thursday, 3 a.m. 5 Observations 1. When USF has the ball, I think of the possibilities. I think of the weapons. I think in a hurry, because the Bulls may soon be kicking the extra point. But when USF’s opponent has the ball, I wonder if this team can avoid losing three times this year. […]

Bulls somehow pull out a close one against Tulsa

October 13, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Saturday, 3 a.m. For their next trick, the USF Bulls will wear a straight jacket, and they’ll be blindfolded, and they ‘ll be immersed upside down into a water tank. Also, they will be behind by a couple of touchdowns. And then we will see if they can pull out another win. The escape artists […]

The Predictions: Could the Bucs lose to a bye week?

October 6, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Saturday, 3 a.m. This just in. The Bucs are a three-point underdog to “bye” this week. I’m not sure they can cover. Here’s the thing you fear about an open date. By its very description, the receivers are always open. Heck, think of this as the fifth open date that the cornerbacks have had all […]
