USF jerseys will have ‘THE TEAM’ instead of player names on back

TAMPA, Fla. — Coming to USF this fall: Jerseys that place the team above any individual.

Coach Willie Taggart confirmed Monday night that the Bulls will wear jerseys that read "THE TEAM" on the back this year instead of players’ last names. It’s an interesting move, one that provides a bold statement in Taggart’s second season at USF.

Consider it another Taggart stamp on the program. He’s no stranger to creating buzz. After all, USF published this creative video last year before going 2-10.
