USF Senior Matt Grothe Career Over After Knee Injury
Matt Grothe set the Big East Total Offense record last week and this week his record-setting college football career is over after tearing his ACL Saturday night. It was the second quarter of an insignificant rout of Charleston Southern and he wasn't going to play in the second half, but it happened. Grothe is a quiet leader that has been the starting quarterback at the University of South Florida since his freshman year and taken the Bulls all the way to #2 in the nation at one point.
Redshirt Freshman B.J. Daniels will take over Grothe's dream of taking USF where it has never gone before, a Big East title.
Good luck to Matt as he embarks on the road to rehab and hopefully a shot at pro football.
