in Sports/Top Headlines by

Maybe this season holds more than a bowl game for the USF Bulls. Maybe, it also has a championship on the line.

Quarterback Quinton Flowers has led the growth by USF

in Sports/Top Headlines by

When he started, he was a question mark. Lately, Quinton Flowers has been an exclamation point. He has grown up, and he assumed the leadership role of the USF team.

Mitch Perry Report for 9.14.15 — Mariota 1, Winston and Tampa Bay 0

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

One of the interesting stories leading into the beginning of this NFL season is who will be the better professional quarterback. Florida State’s Jameis Winston or Oregon’s Marcus Mariota? Winston won the Heisman in leading FSU to the national championship in his debut 2013 season, while Mariota won last year’s Heisman. The debate will rage on for years (hopefully?), but the obvious winner on Day One of their careers was the Tennessee Titans, who chose Mariota in the 2nd pick…

Pete Rose was back in the news this week for the wrong reasons. Banned for life in 1988 for betting on baseball, Rose first denied the accusations entirely, before finally backing off that stance.
