For a while USF had some buzz in the state but now UCF has lapped them. They need a respectable season.
2019 South Florida Bulls Predictions: Team Strengths
Offense Should Work: After things fell apart late in the season last year the Bulls had to explore some changes. They brought in Kerwin Bell to coach the offense.
Bell is a former Florida quarterback who has had a lot of success at lower levels. His offense is spreadish but adaptable.
Blake Barnett is a talented quarterback, you don’t get recruited by Alabama if you aren’t. He was having a fine season and missed some time during their struggles he can run and throw.
Bell will design the offense to take care of both of those traits and make the Bulls less predictable.
New Offense, Same Line: If you are going to implement a new systems experience can be a good or a bad thing. In this case probably mostly good.
USF returns close to 90% of its offensive line starts from last year and before things went off the rails they were having a lot of success.
They are going to move a few guys around but overall this should be a good group in the top half of the conference.
2019 South Florida Bulls Predictions: Team Weaknesses
Defensive Disruption?: When the Bulls burst onto the scene in the old Big East it was the defense that led the way. Jim Leavitt took all those Hurricane and Seminole leftovers and whipped them into a frenzy.
Even though Charlie Strong is a defense guy he has not been able to whip the team into a dominating force on that side of the ball.
They are hopeful that Darius Slade and a few others can get mean and play better than they have to this point in their careers. They need more from the defensive line.
Ditto at linebacker where injured Nico Sawtelle is an unknown.
He was their best linebacker last season and the team went 1-6 without him. Those numbers only tell part of the story. With the group they have they are not sure where the best spots are for everyone. Having Sawtelle back would settle things down.
Patrick Macon is a transfer from Oklahoma State who has interesting measurables. They need the linebackers to be fast and fearless to compete.
South Florida Bulls Prediction: 9-3
The first two games will be interesting. Wisconsin is coming to town and then they are off to Georgia Tech.
The Badgers should rough them up a little but Tech is in transition. The Bulls might have an edge there.
Within the AAC the schedule looks good. Cincinnati is solid but they get them at home and I think everything sets up for them to go to UCF with a chance to take the division with a win. They probably lose but still.
One weird spot in the middle is a home game to independent. That one could go either way.
