  1. Bats Stay Hot, Bulls Runs Past UNF 12-1

    Homeruns are nice. But a bit overrated in this day in college baseball. UCLA Bruins last year won the World Series after hitting just 19 HR's all year. That's in 66 games played. So don't worry too much about the HR's. Pitching/Defense is the name of the game. And if they keep scoring runs like the last two games the HR's are meaningless. Go Bulls! Nice start!
  2. 3-0 baby! Book those flights to Omaha!
  3. Do kids get in free tonight?

    Yes, kids get in free to all the Basketball games.

    Not true at all. Bulls would have pretty much locked up an at-large bid this past weekend if they could have won 2 out of 3 games vs Seton Hall who had a pretty decent RPI and have been on a big streak which the tournament committee looks at hot teams towards the end of the year. Now getting swept has pretty much taken us out of an at-large bid at this point unless something crazy happens. It looks like a Big East tournament win is our only hope. Possibly getting to the Championship game of the Big East Tourney with no losses could help our at large bid chances as well but we pretty much can't lose any of the 4 games remaining and have to get to the tourney final with no losses to have a slight chance for at large. Go Bulls! Our RPI was in the mid to low 60s, Seton Hall is in the 30s. Winning 2/3 would have bumped us into the 50s, at best. I don't know if I'd call that a "lock" without seeing what we do in the tourney. Not true again. Our RPI before the series started was at 50.( http://www.baseballamerica.com/college/weekend-preview-may-10-12/ ) We are now at 66 after the 3 straight losses. Winning 2 of 3 would have put our RPI in the mid 40's at worst. The magic number for RPI is 45. Typically most teams that have an RPI at 45 or under get an at large bid. Winning 2 of 3 at Seton Hall would have definetly gotten us to or under that magic number of 45 RPI assuming we would have won 3 of 4 of our remaining games vs FGCU and Rutgers. But now being that our RPI dropped to middle 60's, it will be impossible to get our RPI back in the 40's. Regardless, it's all irrelevant now seeing that we lost all 3. Bottom line is now we pretty much need to win tourney to get in.

    1-0 Bulls after a Teaf triple and a Ramsey single. Top 6th.
  7. Baseball @ Notre Dame

    Here's the standings heading into today. Team ... W-L ... GB ... GR USF.... 13-2 ... 0.0 ... 9 Pitt... 12-3 ... 1.0 ... 9 UL..... 11-4 ... 2.0 ... 9 SHU.... 10-5 ... 3.0 ... 9 RU...... 8-7 ... 4.0 ... 9 ND...... 7-8 ... 6.0 ... 9 UConn... 8-10 .. 6.5 ... 6 SJU..... 7-11 .. 7.5 ... 6 GU...... 5-10 .. 8.0 ... 9 UC...... 4-14 . 10.5 ... 6 VU...... 2-13 . 11.0 ... 9 Only one clinch scenario today. USF can clinch tournament berth with win over Notre Dame. USF already clinched a Big East tournament berth. Worst they can do is end up in tie with St Johns and they own the tie breaker going 3-0 vs St Johns. Not quite. There is a scenario in which Seton Hall or Notre Dame sweep USF and then St Johns sweeps Seton Hall or Notre Dame, and all three of those teams end up tied together with a 3-3 record against the other two. Then the tie-breaker is impossible to discern at this point because of so many variables involving games yet to be played. So mathematically we have not clinched. Ok. Let's see if that happens. LOL. Go Bulls!

    Actually, not playing the game is better than playing the game and winning if we played Stetson for rpi purposes.
  10. Baseball @ Florida

    Relax guys. Not sure why but they didn't bring in their normal bullpen guys today for some unknown reason. Oh well.
  11. USF at St John's

    Is this game on Brighthouse?
  12. Big East Baseball Tournament

    Why would u want to see the score? This team is just plain oh pathetic. With very questionable coaching.
  13. Baseball vs UNF

    No chance. Have to win big east tourney to get in.
  14. Baseball USF-UConn

    Zero chance we get an at large bid this year with our strength of schedule. Only chance we have to make ncaa tourney is to win big east tourney. Decent season this year but didn't beat enough good teams when given the little chances we had with the weakest schedule USF has had in 20 yrs.
  15. Baseball: USF @SJU

    Great pitching performance indeed. But not one of the greatest. I think a lot of people who haven't followed usf baseball for a long time don't realize usf was a top 25 baseball program year in and year out for a long time. There have been numerous no hitters and even a perfect game not too long ago. Nonetheless, great performance by Barbosa. But best in history is stretching it a bit. Great win Bulls. We need a sweep!
