USF Bulls: A Close Look at the Spring Game
The USF Spring game was my first and I have to say it was fun. I stood on the sidelines for the entire game. I was very close to all the players and coaches. The fans were excited to see what the USF Bulls will look like in the 2019 season. As the players took the field the offense was dressed in the white jerseys and the defense was in green jerseys. Head coach Charlie Strong was walking the field observing everything. In some cases, he would walk over to each sideline and tell the assistant coaches what he thought.
The game began with an 80-yard touchdown pass from Blake Barnett to tight end Mitchell Wilcox. If your fan of offense than that is how you wanted the game to start. The defense was not happy after that and knew that they need to adjust. New offensive coordinator Kerwin Bell likes to mix the run and pass. From my observation point, he likes to throw the quick passes in the middle and on the outside. At the end of the first half, the white team led 51-16.
The defense adjusted. In fact, early in the third quarter, they got a turnover. The first of two for the day. The defense was missing many tackles which were resulting in more yards. They would also get after all three quarterbacks. The defense would account for many sacks. It was either the offensive line was missing assignments, or the quarterbacks were hanging on to the ball too long.
The game overall was good. Both sides of the ball struggled at times but were able to recover. This season will be recovering from the end of last season. This Bulls team, I believe, has put the past away. When the season begins at the end of August this team will be ready. The goal is to recover from last season and hopefully beat their rivals the University of Central Florida Knights.
