Bull-ogosphere: Soccer's Great Weekend, Basketball's Tough Schedule

Both Men's and Women's Soccer are unbeaten so far. - gousfbulls.com

Catching up on the last few days of USF sports, including a good result in Michigan (no, that's not a mistake).

While everyone was focusing on football (where USF and MSU set the sport back a 100 years), we had a great weekend of soccer.

Women's Soccer wins both matches in USF Soccer Classic

USF won both legs of the USF Soccer Classic, with 1-0 wins over Middle Tennessee State and North Florida. Sophomore Olivia Chance scored vs. MTSU, and senior Sharla Passariello notched the winner vs. UNF. The big stat is defense: only 2 goals allowed in 6 matches, with four shutouts and no goals in the run of play. The Bulls are 4-0-2 so far this season. Next up for the Bulls are ranked squads #22 South Carolina Thursday and #12 Florida Sunday.

Ten-manned Men's Soccer pulls out a draw at Ann Arbor

While the guys in helmets and pads had a tough weekend at Michigan St., the guys in shin guards made hay against #14 Michigan, draw 1-1 in double-OT. Stiven Salinas scored early, and the Bulls held Michigan to one goal during 84 minutes with a man down. Next up is Wisconsin at home on Thursday. The men are 1-0-2 this season.

ESPN ranks USF Basketball non-conference schedule second-toughest in AAC

Dana O'Neil rates USF tied with UConn for second-toughest non-conference schedule in the American, behind the Napoleon-esque world-conquering schedule of Memphis (OK St twice, Gonzaga and Florida). Comparing UConn and USF, UConn has the tougher non-conference tournament (2K Sports has UConn, Indiana, Washington, Boston College; Las Vegas has USF, UNLV, Santa Clara and Miss. St.). But UConn only has one true road game, vs. USF's three, and a lot of those teams visiting Storrs (E. Wash., Maine, Boston U.) aren't so hot.  A year ago, who'da thunk hosting Florida Gulf Coast would give USF some cred?

Bench not coming off his namesake just yet

Willie Taggart tells MC Goatee that sophomore QB Steven Bench won't get more playing time until he has more command of the playbook. It looks like a case of Bobby Eveld staying in because he understands the offense better, and not because Eveld has more skill than Bench. Bench's time could come sometime during the season.
