  1. On March 25th both USF Club Basketball teams competed in the championship of the Swamp Shootout at UF. USF Men’s Club Basketball are your 2018 Swamp Shootout champions! With this victory, they have gained free entry into the NIRSA national tournament at the Ohio State University! USF Women’s Club Basketball did not win it all but played hard in the championship game against a tough Georgia Tech team. I wasn't there to watch. Just figured I'd share this cool news with the USF sports community. Go Bulls! https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=986660128153107&id=395210627298063
  2. I cannot stand when kids do this. To me it makes them look like punks. Exaggerating a foul to get the refs' attention is okay, but it should at least be a natural-looking action. That head thing is nails on a chalkboard for me.

    Truly hoped to never see OA again, but

    I guess when you suck, you also suck at cheating? 🤔

    We are not a mid-major if you go by this... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mid-major Mid-major is a term used in American NCAA Division I college sports, especially men's basketball, to refer to athletic conferences that are not among the so-called "Power Five conferences" (the ACC, Big 10, Big 12, Pac-12, and SEC), the American, the Atlantic 10, Mountain West and the Big East[1] the programs of which are sometimes referred to as "high majors" by comparison. The term "mid-major" was coined in 1977 by Jack Kvancz, head coach of Catholic University's men's basketball team.[2] Such a distinction is not officially acknowledged by the NCAA, nor does the NCAA use the terms "major" and "mid-major" to differentiate between Division I athletic conferences. It is considered offensive and derogatory by some fans and schools.

    My point is that it is stupid to perpetuate the myth that somehow a crappy team is magically a major "power" program just because of their conference. Just do us a favor and keep that "mid-major" talk to a minimum. Just like a terrible nickname, the mid-major lable can stick if enough people (even *gag* USF fans) keep throwing it around. Why is that controversial on a USF fan board?

    USF realignment "Rumors" "tweets" "etc"

    Good point he made here: "Obviously with ESPN as the media partner for the College Football Playoff, I also just wanted to show how important the geography of central Florida is to ESPN's parent company (Disney)," Olszewski said.

    The mid-major label for USF football is an insult and simply is not accurate. Not every college football team in a so-called "P5" conference should be anointed as a "major" program just because they happen to be in the Big Whatever Conference. Conference affiliation is certainly not the sole criteria for determining the level of "major" to assign to a program, so can we please dispense with the generalization that USF is a mid-major football program solely because we are in a so-called "G5" conference. I submit that any FBS program in the top 25 is automatically a major program.

    That was a good read. It does make it all the more bitter knowing how close USF was to being the subject of all that respect (at least we were mentioned). Hopefully, the theme of this article will spread and college football will wake up to the fortune just waiting to be made by expanding the playoff. Hopefully sooner than later.

  13. Walking around Dunham's Sports in Greenville, NC (ECU's town) and this caught my eye. Harvard of the south right next to Harvard of the north. 😉 Bottom shelf, but still unexpected.

    Real-Time RPI of the AAC

    Check the SOS too. AAC is #5, Big 12 #6. Another myth exposed IMHO. And that's with our terrible SOS (#184) weighing down the conference.

    It will be interesting to watch how the sports media deals with this. Will USF suddenly be worth their time? Will they report it as coming from a former "UCF" player? Guess we'll find out soon enough.
