(AUDIO) Willie Taggart: USF Is Right on Track

USF head coach Willie Taggart joined Booger and Marc to discuss the upcoming 2014 season and his expectations for USF football.

Taggart said he thinks this team is right on track to building it to a championship football team. Right now they have to stay the course. Looking at the team last year, Taggart said they had to overcome the stigma of failure and this season his team is starting to believe.

Coach Taggart said he’s using discipline and accountability to change the culture around the program. He said his team is starting to see themselves approve when they do things right. Last year, Taggart said the team didn’t like working but that has changed.

Right now Taggart says the QB’s are battling in camp and after this week he plans on naming a starter. Taggart said there are no early leaders in the clubhouse right now.

Taggart said that the expectations have to be to get back to a bowl game this season to keep them on schedule.

Taggart admitted that trying to bring his brand of tough football was hard at first but they’ve been recruiting to it and players left over from the Skip Holtz era are buying into his system. The team is night and day from where it was last year.
