Once upon a time, USF baseball fans complained about how USF should be great.  With all of the talent locally, they would say, there are no excuses.  Now, there are no excuses.  Just a challenge to keep on keeping on. 


Spring Break is but a memory for USF students. And, perhaps for some, memories lost. The football team is back at it today, returning to camp for the first time after the break. They’ll continue to adapt to the new coaching philosophies being installed by Charlie Strong and company. Fans will get a peek at that new offense at the April 15th Spring Game.

The madness of March is in full swing, but USF is outside looking in, once again.

Spring is a season of change.  A lot of changes are happening at USF, most of them positive.


As a reminder, Livefyre comments have been discontinued. The company was purchased by Adobe, who have bundled that product into an enterprise suite. As a result, this blog is transitioning to Disqus, which is a similar blog commenting software. You must sign up for a Disqus account at www.disqus.com in order to be able to add new comments to this blog. Both systems will be visible during this transition while it is determined how to preserve the old comments, if it is possible. Your patience during this transition is appreciated.


The blog has been forced to update the commenting method for the site.  Livefyre, a product that members of this blog have been using for many years, is no longer available.  The company that produced it was purchased by Adobe, who has interests that do not involve supporting free blog commenting software.  Fortunately, a very similar product, Disqus, exists and is easy to transfer to.  That does mean you'll all need to create new user accounts by going to www.disqus.com and selecting the "get started" button.  The steps are all pretty easy from there.  You may need to validate your account via an email sent by Disqus before you can comment on the blog.  After you have a new Disqus account, logging into the blog comments is similar to before, except now you'll use an email address and password rather than just a user name.  Thank you all for your patience during this transition.


As many of you are already aware, the comment section of the blog has not been available for the past couple of days.  We are looking into this technical issue and will have it resolved as soon as possible.  Thank you for your patience during this brief outage, caused by events beyond our control.


Spring is here and football spring camp is underway. Every season is loaded with expectations and doubts, none more so than those which begin a new coaching era. Nobody knows what lies ahead, but that next chapter of USF football is starting, now.


It’s March and the basketball madness is everywhere. Most conferences have already begun their respective season ending tournaments, to include the women of The American. The men, however, will begin play later this week, in Hartford, Connecticut.


Spring is in the air. Although, in Tampa, spring feels a lot like summer and fall. But, the calendar says it is spring, and spring football practice begins next week.

Football spring camp is just a week away for USF.


The collegiate basketball seasons are drawing to a close, giving way to the sports of spring. While the weather in west central Florida may not change, the calendar says it is time for dusting off the bats and mitts. It also says that spring football is less than two weeks away.


Looking Back

The USF men’s basketball winning streak ends at one. #18 Cincinnati had their way with the Bulls, easily winning 68-54 on Wednesday night. They are just 7-18 on the season and have just one win in the past 13 games.


The #18 Bearcats took care of business against USF, 68-54. Cincinnati’s Kevin Johnson got the scoring started early with a three point shot just a minute into the game, but both offenses were slow starting with just 25 combined points midway through the first period of play. The Bulls held their own for much of that half, where they trailed by as much as 11 and were within two with eight minutes to go, mostly kept within a couple of scores of the Bearcats.


There are just three more weeks until spring practice.
