Slide, B.J., slide: QB to learn from USF softball

3

November

Quarterback B.J. Daniels is USF's leading rusher with 519 yards, but in the interest of preserving his health this season, he'll use the Bulls' bye week to learn a little sliding technique ... from USF softball coach Ken Eriksen.

"I didn't want this to get out, but (offensive coordinator Mike ) Canales has actually talked to the girls softball coach, and he's trying to help me out," Daniels said. "I haven't played baseball since 10th grade, so I kind of lost it and forgot how. They're trying to get me to do that a little more. Right now, I'm just falling, but they're trying to get me to slide."

Daniels will get a tutorial from Eriksen -- himself a former Bulls baseball player -- after Wednesday's afternoon practice. We couldn't help but point out that USF also has a baseball program that could help with the slides, but sure enough, softball had 50 steals last season, while baseball had just 46, while playing in three more games. That's not a shovel pass, it's a riseball ...
