Anyone that has been following the South Florida Bulls in 2010 knows all about the struggling offense and it starts at quarterback. On offense South Florida ranks near the bottom of just about every statistical category in the country. When you think you have two quarterbacks, you don’t even have one. Sophomore B.J. Daniels started the first eleven games but he had his share of ups and downs all season under center, most of them downs. First year head coach Skip Holtz is trying to make Daniels into a passer and so far the results have been subpar. Freshman walk-on and Tampa native Bobby Eveld opened up some eyes with his second-half performance against Miami and his lone start against Big East Champ Connecticut. Eveld came in relief against Miami because Daniels suffered a quad injury. Both Eveld and Daniels are getting the same number of reps in practice in preparation for Friday’s Meineke Car Care Bowl in Charlotte against Clemson. Something tells me we will see both in action on Friday, and Daniels will get the start!
The Bulls are hoping this trip to Charlotte turns out better this time around than it did back in 2005. Let’s take a walk down memory lane, the Bulls were coming off of it’s inaugural season as a member of the Big East Conference and USF went 6-4 that year, just nine years after starting football. The Bulls played N.C. State in Charlotte back in 2005 and the Bulls were shutout by the Wolfpack on that final day of 2005. South Florida is hoping that trend will not continue in 2010.
My prediction: Clemson 23 South Florida 16

Hi my name is Brian and I currently reside in the Sarasota area. I'm currently an online student with Southern New Hampshire University going for my Bachelor's in Communications. New Hampshire is close to my heart because I got married there in October of 2011. I was an intern with the local ABC station here in Sarasota last summer and it lasted until the winter. I had a blast and loved putting together highlights for the live sportscasts. I have also interned at WSRQ radio in Sarasota. Currently working for State College of Florida with their hoops team and softball team. I was at Tropicana Field, back in October of 2008 when the Rays won the AL. David Price came out of the bullpen that night and got Jed Lowrie to ground out and the dome went nuts! TB had a losing season every year until 2008, it was a magical season for the Rays.
