USF vs. Miami: Reaction to Miami's blowout win over the USF Bulls

It got ugly in Miami on Saturday, and the reaction to the Bulls' abysmal game was just as ugly

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

South Florida fell to 3-7 on Saturday after being blown away by Miami, which cruised to a 40-9 win, and the Bulls faithful found themselves ready for change after another embarrassing loss in the middle of a long season.

Head coach Skip Holtz's team has been mired at the bottom of the Big East all season long - and was dealt another difficult blow when senior quarterback B.J. Daniels was injured last week against Connecticut - but the latest miserable performance may have been the final straw for South Florida fans.

From SB Nation's superbly-named South Florida blog, Voodoo Five:

Here's a box, Skip. Pack your stuff and leave.

And as if that big picture isn't clear enough, the criticism for Holtz and the USF athletic department gets even harder in the comments section:

Sometimes you must burn a village to save it.

This is one of those times. There is no alternative. Wholesale changes across the board, from the top of the athletics department down.

Ouch.

The Bulls have two games left, one on the road at Cincinnati and the final game of the season at home against Pittsburgh.
