What do these wide receivers have in common? They’ve Just never had a 1,000-yard receIving season at USF. Throughout the history of USF football, the Bulls have always had talented wide outs, but None who could crack that precious number.

It’s not happening this year either.

The Bulls are one of siX teams in FBS that have never seen a receiver go over the 1,000-yard mark during a season.

The Bulls are joined on the list by Army (triple option for life), Navy (see: Army), Charlotte (seven years of FBS), Georgia Southern (eight years of FBS), and Texas State (10 years FBS). Not a who’s who of winners across the board here.

It’s been 25 years, if it hasn’t happen now, it’s never going to happen. The closest a Bull got was Valdes-Scantling’s 879 yards in 2017. Only one other player has even eclipsed 800 yards in a season, and that was Rodney Adams in 2015 and 2016 where he posted back-to-back 822 yard seasons.

It’s more likely a Bull will finish the year with 822 yards again than it is they’ll top 1,000 yards. Aint gonna happen.
