Bulls rebound from shaky start, show promise

By Michael Fergusson The University of South Florida Bulls have been much-hyped throughout this offseason. On Saturday, they got off to a shaky start before rolling on toward a 42-22 victory over the San Jose State Spartans.

No ‘I’ in team: Russell Westbrook is the MVP

In the NBA, the phrase “Most Valuable Player” is discussed on a different level when compared to other professional sports.

To expand, USF St. Petersburg needs on-campus sports

The excitement of having a […]

Improving their record from 8-5 to 11-2 this year, it feels like the Bulls came, saw and conquered the football season. Any average opposing defense crumbled against the Bull’s offense, headed by junior quarterback Quinton Flowers. Flowers started the season with a pass completion percentage of 59.1, 22 passing touchdowns, and 2296 total passing yards. […]

Cubs Comeback Could Be Greatest of All Time

In 1908, the Chicago Cubs won their second World Series. During this time, William Howard Taft became the 27th President of the United States, ABC and NBC didn’t exist, and the National Football League was nowhere in sight. 108 years later, the Cubs won their third World Series and the city of Chicago now swims […]
