Bucs Receiver Murphy Finds Himself Locked Up

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wide Receiver Louis Murphy is in the headlines. The former Florida Gator and St. Petersburg native was a groomsman in a wedding this past weekend in Palm Beach, FL.

At some point during the reception, Murphy blacked out. When he woke, the Bucs wideout found himself locked inside a building, though he did not know where.

With his cell phone dead, Murphy managed to break a window and access a phone to call 911.

The police eventually arrived and let Murphy out. He promised to pay for any damages and was not charged with any crime. The incident did produce a hilarious 911 call, which is now plastered across the internet.

South Florida Bulls Expected to Compete for Conference Championship

With college football season right around the corner, South Florida Bulls fans have reason to be excited. Entering his fourth season with the program, head coach Willie Taggart believes that his time finally has the quality and depth to compete for the American Conference title.

Coach Taggart will be looking to build on a very strong 2015-16 season that saw the Bulls play in a bowl game for the first time since 2010. The college football world believes that the squad will meet its lofty expectations, with many picking the Bulls to win the American Conference’s East Division.

The team will lean heavily on junior quarterback Quinton Flowers. The Miami native is considered one of the top duel-threat QB’s in the country and has shown himself more than capable of putting the team on his back.

South Florida season kicks off in Raymond James Stadium on September 10th, when the Bulls host Northern Illinois.
