Big East Football Media Day 2012: USF Bulls Preview

The head coach under the biggest presser heading into the 2012-13 season, is probably South Florida Bulls' headman Skip Holtz. Seemingly immersed in talent, Holtz led the Bulls to just a 5-7 record last season after bolting out to a 4-0 start.

Now, Holtz needs results -- specifically a Big East Conference championship -- to probably keep his job.

The reason why expectations in Tampa are so high, is the return of quarterback B.J. Daniels, who will enter the season ranked seventh in Big East history in total offense (7,992 yards). Daniels has all the tools to be a Heisman Trophy candidate, but inconsistent play has been his downfall.

On defense, linebackers Sam Barrington, Michael Lanaris and DeDe Lattimore all return. All three players compiled more than 70 tackles each and combined for a total of 10 1/2 sacks.

Representing USF at the Big East media day will be Daniels, Barrington, tight end Evan Landi and cornerback
Kayvon Webster.
