TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Willie Taggart is still looking for his first victory at South Florida, however the second-youngest coach in a BCS conference insists he's not discouraged by his team's 0-2 start.
Nor is he assuming anything with struggling Florida Atlantic coming to town Saturday night.
The Bulls dropped their first two games of the season by a total of 47 points. The most surprising part of that is Football Championship Subdivision member McNeese State came into Tampa and handled them a lot easier than Michigan State of the powerful Big Ten did in USF's road opener.
Turnovers undermined the Bulls in both losses, supporting Taggart's belief that his young team will finally enjoy some success when players begin expecting good things to happen.
