Taggart Jokes He'll Play QB vs. Miami

Tampa, Florida-- Willie Taggart's winless USF Bulls had last weekend off. They got to sit back and watch this week's opponent, the undefeated Miami Hurricanes, score 77 points against Savannah State.

If that doesn't get your attention, nothing will.

"I think going into that game, everyone anticipated that," said Taggart, who is off to a 0-3 start as USF's head coach. "That's what good football teams do."
