  2. Court rules against Bucs for BP spill damages 5:22 PM MT Associated Press NEW ORLEANS -- A federal appeals court has ruled that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not entitled to damages from BP for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. At issue were the accounting practices the team used to argue that the 2010 spill caused the team's revenues to fall. The Bucs had sought $19.5 million in damages. On Friday, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a district court's decision against the team. The court found that the Bucs' revenue in May-June 2010 was not significantly lower than its revenue during that same span a year later. To qualify for damages, it had needed to show that its revenues rebounded by at least 10 percent in 2011. The team's stadium is about 360 miles southeast of the site of the spill.

  3. I believe, returning even to the pre-Big East days of taking on the bigs will be beneficial to the program. Agreed, it might be nice to be as ignorant to the football landscape as UCFers.
  4. Today
  5. Which reinforces my opinion that the "quick" jump to a BCS conference, along with the #2 notoriety, are turning out to be the worst things to have happened to USF football in light of the demotion. The only cure for those Bulls fans you're referring to is going to be getting back to that upper level conference. The only thing I envy about the Kanigit fan base is that it was allowed to grow organically, which is why their reaction to their current "success" differs from how our fanbase would have reacted .................... I think, anyway.
  6. Yesterday
  7. The official descriptor for the Dookie is "????" ...... which doesn't really clarify **** either.
  8. I absolve you, my son. Say three fight songs and light a candle.
  9. I very seldom use the FIFY operation, but will at this time. Perhaps my first.... FIFY
  10. FYI, we just added them in the last 9-12 months I'd say. Still market testing these emojis.
  11. Always an option. For many, struggling through anonymity is not what most Bulls fans want. If you're UCF and you spent decades in CUSA or MAC and toiling in D-II and D-IAA AND now the aac, you're probably in heaven. We have the burden of having actually played at a high level. It is being addressed with non-conference opponents not a hopeless P6 disinformation campaign - or closing the whole thing down.
  12. points are overrated. i was on this forum 10 years before I got a single point. also, the Dookie and Mad Jimbo Face react don't seem to affect reputation score. i would have assumed the Dookie obviously means "hey bro, your post is the ****!" but nobody ever clarified this.
  13. Not this well organized and consistent. Hell even Puc has a few good points on this issue.
  14. Hum!...which points haven’t been voiced here before?
  15. Well then, new prez might as well close down the football program
  16. This is probably one of the more interesting discussions I’ve experienced on TBP. Good points on both sides of the issue.
  17. Maybe will get lucky or really good. Hopefully, it's the latter.
  18. That’s the debate. An aac trinket and losing all non-cons (or beating the FI/AUs) means very little to most. Even for the incredible Tinmen, it and the “BCS” bowl win is proving useless. They still had to fabricate other stuff and became a shunned laughingstock. The non-consequential bowl game for winning the aac is just that - nonconsequential. I guess if anything it fed Bianchi’s and UCF’s shared propaganda machine.
  19. I was the same way. We all assumed that the championships would come and we would have plenty of time to win one in Big East...then Armageddon came and wiped us all out.
  20. This is correct...that’s why I note it has to be attached to a NYD bowl for it to have meaning for me. I suppose I would not mind going to Boca and having a championship, but it would only be for one time. I still want to get the pleasure of winning one of these friggin championships.
  21. To me, it's all about winning the AAC at this point, with playing on NYD and knocking off one of the big programs as icing. What's ironic is that back when we were in a better conference, it was the opposite. Beating the big programs meant more to me at that point in our development .... the conf championships would come. 15 years later, I have reevaluated the situation ...
  22. Except that we can easily win the AAC and play in Boca Raton in which case winning the AAC is absolutely worthless. If we lose to Wisconsin, Georgia Texh and BYU we aren’t going to a NY6 game no mater how many AAC championship games we win. Beating the teams you hope to be able to face if you win the AAC is a good in and of itself winning the AAC is a way to hopefully be able to get another game that matters that we could then hopefully win.
