Bulls take a break after 'feisty' drills
By Times staff writers
Published December 23, 2005
TAMPA - USF coach Jim Leavitt can tell his players are eager for another game by the way they have gone at each other in their second week of practices for the Meineke Car Care Bowl.
"They're a little feisty, a few guys going at it," Leavitt said after Thursday's practice, the last one before resuming drills Monday. "You hit for quite a while, and that's normal. You get to this time where you just want to play. It's similar to the end of two-a-days, so it's not a bad thing."
The Bulls have three days off, then will go back to preparing for North Carolina State on Dec. 31 in Charlotte. USF will practice in Tampa on Monday and Tuesday before traveling to Charlotte for two days of practice there.
For Leavitt, playing in a bowl has made his December a little busier than in the past decade.
"On the 24th, I want to go out and do a little shopping," said Leavitt, who will spend Christmas day at his parents' home in St. Petersburg. "Probably a lot of gift certificates. ... The 25th, I don't think I'll work. I'll probably get away from the office."
