Who is Grothe's favorite TD target?



Here's a trivia question for you -- not exactly a stumper, but worth a little conversation: Who has caught the most touchdown passes from USF quarterback Matt Grothe in his three seasons with the Bulls?

Don't go scrolling down until you've made a proper guess. If naming the TD leader isn't challenging enough, how about naming the three Bulls who have caught five or more touchdown passes from Grothe? Or for you really devoted fans -- without any online research, can you name all 12 Bulls who have caught touchdowns from Grothe?

Grothe has thrown 36 career touchdown passes, spread out among 12 teammates, including eight current Bulls. At this point, I'm just padding this paragraph so there's a little bit more space between the trivia question and the answer at the top of the chart below. What you're reading right now is pure filler, but I'll give you a ridiculously obscure clue: The touchdown leader has an indirect connection to this week's opponent, FIU, in that his girlfriend, USF softball pitcher Kristen Gordon, went to Cocoa High with Golden Panthers quarterback Wayne Younger, so the soon-to-be-named Bull and Younger have gotten to be friends.

OK, here's your answer: Receiver Taurus Johnson leads the list with seven scores, at least two in each of Grothe's three seasons with the Bulls. Here's the leaderboard:

Taurus Johnson, WR     7
Jessie Hester, WR        5
Amarri Jackson, WR     5
Ean Randolph, WR        4
Marcus Edwards, WR    3
Cedric Hill, TE              3
Carlton Mitchell, WR     3

Also receiving touchdowns: S.J. Green 2, Mike Ford 1, Amp Hill 1, A.J. Love 1, Ben Williams 1.

If that weren't enough for you, here's a link to a Taurus Johnson feature you'll find in Thursday's Times.
