The college football season is just a month away as the conferences hold their annual media days over the past couple of weeks. The season outlook for Willie Taggart and the USF Bulls is one of bouncing back from a disappointing debut season in green and gold. USF was picked to finish sixth in the American Athletic Conference during the media days in Newport, R.I.
ESPN college football insider Brett McMurphy joined WDAE’s ‘The Sports Page’ on Wednesday and gave his prediction for the USF Bulls season.
“It’s simple but it’s not simple,” said McMurphy. “If USF can improve offensively using the old cliché it can’t get any worse, I think they will be improved. Willie (Taggart) asked me point blank if I had them going to a bowl game, I had to do bowl projections a few weeks ago. I said I got you at 5-7 and I’m not going to lie.”
McMurphy thinks if the Bulls can grab three victories out of their first five games, they could indeed be in the running for a bowl game with six victories.
“Obviously that’s a step in the right direction (if they make a bowl game) to turn this thing around,” said McMurphy. “I think Taggart’s the right guy to do that.”
