The University of South Florida Bulls will conclude their week-long stay at the Vero Beach Sports Village Saturday morning with a public practice at 9:30. Bulls coach Willie Taggart said the off-campus training-camp work has been effective.
“It has been very convenient,’’ Taggart said. “No distractions. We haven’t seen anybody else but each other. That has been great.
“This is a great facility to what we’re trying to do and coming together as a team. Now we want to finish strong, take care of business. We want to be fresh and come back to Tampa a lot better than when we left there.’’
Even though Saturday’s practice will have public spectators for the first time in this training camp, Taggart doesn’t expect to divert from the routine.
“It will be just like any other practice,’’ Taggart said. “We’re going to put in work, no different than what we’ve been doing. We’re just going to allow the fans to see the work we’ve been putting in.’’
Taggart said there has been some separation at assorted positions, but he isn’t prepared to be specific.
“We’re not concerned with a depth chart until we get ready to prepare for McNeese State,” Taggart said of the Aug. 31 opener at Raymond James Stadium. “We just want to continue to get better. We always talk about how you’re either getting better or getting worse. You never stay the same. We’re constantly preaching that with our guys and they are competing every day.’’
