USF Bulls Season Prediction, What Will Happen

USF is in a tough spot.

It’s going to be better in Year Three under Jeff Scott, and it has more than enough experience with 21 expected returning starters to be more consistent, but there aren’t enough layups on the schedule to cooperate.

Of course, by now under Scott the program should be at a level to hang with and beat the better teams in the American Athletic Conference, but there’s too far to go to be merely decent in several areas that were painful sore spots over the last few years.

It doesn’t help to miss Navy, but not having to play Memphis helps. However, it’s going to be a rough run considering USF will likely be the underdog in at least eight games – unless something big kicks in early on.

Set The USF Bulls Regular Season Win Total At … 3.5

BYU, at Florida, at Louisville, at Cincinnati, at Houston. Those should be five losses, and if any of them aren’t, the potential might be there to have a huge breakthrough season.

SMU, at Tulsa, and – despite putting up a good fight in the rivalry showdowns over the last few years – UCF all lean loss. If USF has improved, it has to win at least one of those – two would be fantastic – and Howard, East Carolina, Tulane, at Temple have to almost all be wins.

Bull fans might be ready to start winning again, but a five win season would be great step forward. Anything more would tremendous, and anything under four wins would be a huge disappointment considering the parts in place.
