The South Florida Bulls football team got demolished 49-10 senior day by the No. 18 Memphis Tigers to fall to 4-7 on Saturday inside Raymond James Stadium. The Bulls will miss a bowl game for the first time since 2014.

USF was outscored 42-0 after the first quarter. The Bulls had just one first down in the second half, and had just five total for the game—a program low.

Redshirt freshman Jordan McCloud, walk-on Kirk Rygol, and true freshman Jah’Quez Evans combined to go 6-for-19 for 44 yards in the loss—another program low.

True freshman running back Kelley Joiner, Jr. rushed for 115 yards on 13 carries in his first career start, replacing the injured Jordan Cronkrite and Trevon Sands.

Head coach Charlie Strong is 4-13 in his last 17 games at the helm of the Bulls. It’s not getting better. It’s time to cut bait.

I feel sorry for the 17 seniors who will go out with a whimper as a Bull. They deserved better. The fan base deserves better.

USF will face UCF on Black Friday and will more than likely finish the season on a four game losing streak. Charlie Strong will very likely finish 0-8 in November in 2018 and 2019.

Your move, Michael Kelly.
