USF Football Tuesday Press Conference Tweetcap

We have the highlights of USF’s weekly press conference as the Bulls start preparing for Florida State.

NCAA Football: South Florida at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

USF held its customary press conference Tuesday, with Marlon Mack, Auggie Sanchez, and coach Willie Taggart taking questions. We were there tweeting out highlights - here they are with annotations.

Daniels completed only eight passes in his first college start, but hit two long passes and ran for over 100 yards in the Bulls’ 17-7 win.

Sanchez was tossed for the penalty in last year’s game in Tallahassee. He also missed the Maryland game as a result.

In addition to Sanchez’s ejection, USF played last year’s game without the suspended Tashon Whitehurst and Nigel Harris.

Credit to Taggart for steering USF through the trap game situation last week at Syracuse, even as it appeared the team was going to fall victim to it down 17-0.

This is a smart thing to say. Flowers may be as fast and elusive as Jackson, but they have different passing talents and the teams run different systems. You can’t just take someone else’s gameplan wholesale and use it yourself.

Dalvin Cook ran 30 times for 266 yards and three touchdowns against USF last year. Whether he’s healthy enough to do that again is anyone’s guess.

To be fair, not really surprising the top overall prospect in Florida and a consensus five-star chose FSU coming off their 2013 national championship.

More on this later.
