More than a year has passed since the Bull's shock victory over UC last season. The Bulls are a much better team this year than they were a year ago. The growth has come mainly on the offensive side of the ball because Willie Taggart has finally find the kind of running back that the Bulls need for his offense to have some success.
If the senior running back is not back by the East Carolina game the Bearcats will shut him down for the year and attempt to procure a medical redshirt for Hosey. Hosey does have a red shirt available to him.
