Head coach Willie Taggart has made one thing very clear as the USF Bulls kick off spring practice; it is open season, no one is guaranteed a starting position. And while there are many position battles that will play out over the Bulls' spring and summer drills, the one battle that will get a lot of attention will be at the quarterback position.

Going into the spring, Taggart has a tough decision in front of him after the graduation of three year starter B.J. Daniels. Currently, the Bulls first year head coach has four quarterbacks on his roster, senior Bobby Eveld, sophomore Matt Floyd, redshirt freshman Trenton Miller and incoming freshman Mike White. The battle is expected to be a good one, especially between the veteran Eveld and up-and-comer Floyd.

"I'm not really concerned about that [the starting job]," said Floyd. "We're just going to come out here and try to get better and make each other better. Everything is wide open."

Floyd saw a majority of his playing time and started the final three games of last season after injuries to Daniels and Eveld. The redshirt freshman completed 51.8 percent of his passes with five interceptions and no touchdowns in seven games.

"It has been a lot of fun, a lot of competition stuff," said Floyd of the position battle after the first spring practice. "A lot of intensity."

Regardless of the decision on the starting quarterback, Floyd knows that the competition is going to be tough. "He's got four good choices here," Floyd explained. "I don't know if there is a specific type he is looking for, but he has four smart players here."
