For their own good
Fifty years ago, they were screwed-up kids sent to the Florida School for Boys to be straightened out. But now they are screwed-up men, scarred by the whippings they endured. Read the story and see a video and portrait gallery.

3 GAMES TO WATCH
SEPT. 16 AT UCF
The Bulls' first real challenge, on the road against a motivated team that has much more to gain by winning than USF does. Struggle here and it's a bad sign for Bulls fans in 2006.
SEPT. 29 VS. RUTGERS
The Big East opener is a key game against the Knights, picked by league coaches to finish one spot ahead of the Bulls. With a national ESPN audience on a Friday night, it's a pivotal game. A victory over Rutgers and the following week against Connecticut would put USF atop the Big East's second tier.
NOV. 18 AT LOUISVILLE
The Cardinals want revenge for last year's embarrassing 45-14 throttling in Tampa. If Louisville can beat Miami, the Cardinals could come in undefeated. Going to Louisville and delivering another upset would be as improbable as last year's dominating win for USF.
3 STATS TO WATCH
The USF receivers caught two touchdowns in the final 11 games last season. When nobody in the group totals more than 290 yards for the year, it's an offense in dire need of a real downfield threat.
The Bulls made only 11 of 19 attempts. Only one loss was by fewer than 10 points, so there weren't game-losing misses, but the Bulls and new kicker Mike Benzer won't be happy with five misses inside the 40 in 2006.
Senior linebacker Stephen Nicholas needs 10 for losses to be USF's career leader. Nicholas starts the season fourth on the list with 381/2. Greg Walls (1999-2002) has the record with 48.
