Tuesday Football Press Conference Tweetcap

Coming off a somehow disappointing 38-22 win over ECU on Saturday, USF held their weekly press conference.

The media were displaced from the Hall of Fame Room at the Lee Roy Selmon Athletic center for today’s press conference. The Student-Athlete Enrichment Center had set up a dark space for the athletes to come take a load off, relax, and maybe even get a massage.

Coincidentally (probably not):

In addition to the renovations and scholarships, the donation will also help with any athletic department priority needs that may pop up.

The generosity of Jeff and Brandy Fishman wasn’t lost on head coach Willie Taggart.

For a team that was lost in the desert for nearly a half decade, this is an interesting turn of events. Getting six wins was the norm for many years before the “Dark Times” and seeing such a quick progression is great to see.

Lord knows we’ve talked about attendance since Saturday, but the players and coaches have noticed. “It is what it is” is just a diplomatic way of saying that they were disappointed in the turnout.

Nichols said that when Taggart called the timeout after ECU lined up, the Bulls knew what to look for because the Pirates used the same play to convert on a third down earlier in the game.

And it starts with the front four and linebackers Auggie Sanchez and Nigel Harris. Too many arm tackles and not enough sound tackles.

Injury update:


With UConn WR Noel Thomas (55 catches, 631 yards) coming to town on Saturday night, it would be nice to have Hoggins available to start along side Nichols. If Hoggins can’t go though, “old man” Johnny Ward would step in for the Bulls.
