South Florida: The Good, Bad, and Ugly against the UCF Knights
The USF Bulls regular season came to an end with another loss. This was to cross-state rival the UCF Knights. The game is called the War on I4. The past two seasons it has been won by the Knights. The USF Bulls have a long way to go if they are going to beat the Knights in the feature. Head coach Charlie Strong once again said that the players need to do a better job. Here is the good, bad and ugly against UCF.
The running game was probably the only bright spot for the Bulls. The Bulls have three good running backs. Jordan Cronkrite, Johnny Ford and Duran Bell have all been a big part. Cronkrite had a 1,000-yard season. Ford and Bell both had a good game. The Bulls offense struggled all night, but this was the one good thing about it.
In Friday nights game, it would have been the quarterback play. For the second time starting quarterback, Blake Barnett didn’t play. Charlie Strong would once again rotate Chris Oladokun and Brett Kean. Oladokun came out and played well in the beginning. For some reason, they would take him out of the game and bring in Brett Kean. The offense looked flat other than the running game. The big question next year will be who is going to be the starting quarterback?
This wasn’t anything that the Bulls had control of. It was the injury to UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton. As Milton was scrambling in the second quarter what looked like a normal tackle was not. He fell in front of the USF side of the field and all players just turn away. Milton had suffered a broken leg. The medical staff quickly brought the cart out to get Milton off the field. He was rushed to the hospital and surgery went well according to his father.
The Bulls fans have already taken to social media. They want the entire coaching staff fired before the bowl game. The Bulls started off so well. It has been many problems all year. The future at USF is a huge question mark. AD Mike Kelly will have to take the offseason to figure it out. The fanbase was not showing up all season and with them losing 5 straight games it will be hard in the future. All we can do is hope the future is brighter than the present.
