Why do you play the football
Someone might get hurt
A lot of credit goes to the USF defense, which had allowed only 70 yards before the disaster of the last desperation drive by UConn (prevent while rushing three and dropping eight because WHY???). But UConn is abysmal at football, and the Bulls failed to take enough advantage on offense.
It's a win, and that's a good thing. And we absolutely saw progress from N.C. State (especially on D). But there's still a lot to be cleaned up.
