  1. I think we were just a bit too young to make the NCAA this past year; we lost a lot of games due to youth and the lack of floor maturity. So, if we are to make the dance next year, what do we need to do? For me, if Kiir, Brown and Durr improve their games, we dance next year. (1) Kiir needs to be able to score more. I don't know what he needs to do but he just needs to add more points to his PT. (2) Brown is probably one of the best shooters on the team, a very natural shot. However, his scoring selection is a little iffy -he goes for too many 3s and passes up a lot of shots. And (3) Durr, I think he really picked up his game towards the end of the season. Man, if he improves that much more over the summer and into the start of the next season, look out! Yeah, I know, team-wise, our free throw % is bad... But our style is hustle bball and being tired probably has a lot to do with it. Bad excuse, I know! What about the rest of the roster? And what about the two new incoming guys? For sure, we'll miss Lang and Nik (moral support and one of the crew in practice). Holy crud, this is the first time in a long time that I can honestly say that I'm first a USF bball fan and then a USF football fan...
  2. I'm officially putting my foot down and hitting the reset in all the bad voodoo that's been associated with USF men's bball! (1) Indian Burial Ground in the formerly named Sun Dome: GONE! And we have a new name now! (2) A long history of just really bad basketball and not winning: GONE! It's all in the past! (3) Bad coaches and just a badly run program. I mean what program gets caught for cheating --because of illegal tutoring? GONE! (4) Apathetic students: I still remember I was on campus wayyy back when and in the rec room and they guys wouldn't agree to turn on the USF C-USA Tournament game. Instead, they wanted to keep it on MTV... : GONE! Thank You, Players and Coaches, you've brought us new vibes and new enthusiasm! I've never seen this kind of happiness and energy from Coaches and Players --and winning basketball.
  3. OK. Time to check your faith in this team... Sadly, before the start of the game, I didn't think our guys would win the 3rd game after the OT loss. I thought the home-cooking refs, their high school stadium and fans, and the style of bball didn't suit us, especially when what's his name on their team kept scoring at will in the second game. Man, our team showed me that they are a force, leading all the way in game 3 and winning soundly in the end. So, did you have the faith?
  4. Should we accept a bid to the CIT or CBI if offered? YES!!! GO BULLS!
  5. For you Cats who aren't diehard USF bball fans, you have no idea how rare this is --USF men's bball winning something. Man, this is really something. WOW. GO BULLS!
  6. Brown had a nice game. We needed him tonight. I think he's going to be important for us in the future -as a scorer.
  7. Gotta give our coaches credit. I thought it would be really tough to win game 3. But they drew up a great game plan. What a team! GO BULLS! ---And, yes, we are talking about USF men's bball!
  8. Champs! Way to go, BULLS!!! Two things: I think Nick didn't want to go in when BG allowed the bench guys to sub in for the last whatever seconds. What a classy player and one of the happiest guys cheering on the team throughout! Nick, you rock! And I think I saw Lang not shake hands with Strus at the end. Could be wrong. But if he did, I'm glad. I just didn't like Strus --dirty player.
  9. When not blowing teams out, all you can hope for in college hoops is a close game at the end and then roll the dice with your emotions. Yes, this is a really good USF squad.
  10. Hey, do the guys come back to Tampa and then fly back there for the 3rd game? I'd stay and practice but that's probably not practical.
  11. Our team, when we are full-go, plays really well. However, after a little while, we run out of gas and sort of calm down. And this is when we get into trouble. We don't have the pure talent of shooters to just score during this time period. BG needs to keep substituting guys and not just let the starters run themselves tired like they did in this first game. Depaul will beat us when we play average ball. BTW, Vegas says we are underdogs by 4 pts in game 2.
  12. I watched a little of Depaul on YouTube and it seems like they are bigger and taller than most teams we've seen recently but they are slower. I think we have to play our brand of tough basketball to win this series --drive, get fouls and pray the FT goes in!
  13. I must admit that I wasn't all that excited when he was hired. I was sooo wrong! I was going on what he did at Georgia Tech. But look at the images. Clearly, GT is a deathtrap for bball coaches. USF finally did something right with USF men's bball!
  14. I want to listen, but I don't want to listen... I miss the man so much; it hurts to remember the old days of USF football. I think I'll not listen to it.
  15. Our guys are getting so much practice with these games. It's great to see them playing well together. I think this was a great idea (the tournament). Let's keep on rolling! Go Bulls!
