Refocused Warren a key part of Bulls' new line
The countdown is now at 28 hours until USF's season opener against Wofford, and we'll throw off your clock by linking today to a story in Saturday's newspaper, profiling sophomore Jeremiah Warren, who wasn't with the team this spring due to academic concerns but is now expected to start at left tackle.
"We're football coaches, but it's always good to see a young man mature and develop into a college student-athlete," co-offensive line coach Larry Scott said. "He picked it up off the field, and you can see the results on the field."
Thanks to Times photographer Willie J. Allen Jr. for getting a fresh pic from practice on Thursday.

-- Jerome Murphy as a first-round draft pick? The Sporting News' Russ Lande ranks him as the nation's No. 3 cornerback, behind two other state players in FSU's Patrick Robinson and Florida's Joe Haden.
-- Trying to put together a complete list of former USF football players now playing elsewhere in college football. I've got 10 confirmed right now -- quarterback Grant Gregory at Kansas State and tackle Thomas Edenfield at Southern Miss are the only I-A players I've found. You have cornerbacks Antonio and Antwane Cox and linebacker Josh Smiley at Bethune-Cookman, linebacker LeBrandon Glover at Jackson State, defensive lineman Brandon Peguese at Hampton, receiver Rhett Hamrick at Tennessee-Martin, receiver David Cozzo at Massachusetts and quarterback Matt Piloto at Division III Mount Union. If I missed somebody, tell me in the comments -- there's a few who were supposed to be at Bethune, but aren't listed there.
