We're roughly two weeks away from the beginning of spring practice for South Florida and have reached the appropriate point of the off-season to start breaking down each unit as Willie Taggart and company squad up to start building towards the 2016 season.
In recent years dating back to the Skip Holtz era, USF's offensive inefficiency began right under center with instability and injuries at the quarterback position. In Taggart's first two seasons at the helm, the Bulls offense went through two offensive coordinators and five starting quarterbacks as the team struggled to find an offensive identity. That all changed in 2015.
With a switch to a more up-tempo pace and the emergence of Quinton Flowers as the definitive starter, the Bulls offense surged at the right possible time this past season, winning seven of their final eight games and earning a trip to their first bowl game since 2010. Flowers' leadership and mastery of the "Gulf Coast" offense put USF in the conversation for the AAC Championship game towards the end of the year, curb stomping eventual east champions Temple and pre-season conference favorites Cincinnati in the process.
With the Bulls looking to be potential AAC East favorites, anticipation amounts as it remains to be seen if 2015's success at the quarterback position can carry into new heights in 2016.
