Amazing as it may seem, with one sport left (baseball) USF is the the points leader for the second annual American Cup. If you had told me we would be in this position at the beginning of the fall term with only baseball left to play, I would have said we'd be a shoe-in but unfortunately I was sucked into the idea that this wouldn't be a rebuilding year because we had a great incoming class of superstars and blah blah blah. But unfortunately we lead by the slimmest of margins over Tulsa (last years winner ) and UConn. Tulsa is irrelevant now because they don't have a baseball team  so its just UConn who is 3.5 points back. In a sense USF holds there Cup destiny in there own hands, after Jacksonville, the Bulls play UConn this weekend so if they just win 7 in a row (3 v UConn + 4 in AAC Champ) and that should take care of things. It should be an interesting week in baseball to say the least. Did the team turn a corner taking 2 of 3 from ECU in Pirate land? We shall see. GO Bulls!

USF 120
Tulsa 118.5
Uconn 116.5
Houston 89
Cincinnati 88.5
Memphis 87
SMU 86.5
Temple 85
UCF 84
ECarolina 82
Tulane 57
Navy 10

Let's take Bumgardner, Cueto and Samardza (sp?) out of the Giants rotation and see how they do.  Injuries to your weekend starters really do make a difference. If all get healthy the Bulls will be at or near the top of the conference next year.

Failure to win against UCONN leaves us in 2nd place b4 the tourney. We are only 1/2 pt back but we need to be able to win one more game than UCONN in the tourney to regain the lead.

Uconn 122.5
USF 122
Tulsa 118.5
Cincinnati 93.5
Houston 93
Memphis 90
ECarolina 89
SMU 86.5
Temple 85
UCF 85
Tulane 65
Navy 10

You guys are right. A team with 30% of its pitching staff injured, it's Johnny Bench award finalist catcher out for the year, and starting 7 freshman needs to do better. Fire Kingston already.

Other conference teams don't suffer injuries?

With baseball, I think JTrue hit it right on the head. No team in our conference had as many injuries to as many key players.

you wrote this, I lol'd. I'm honestly surprised we were in a position to win this--I suspect our women's sports put us there. Golf & tennis did their parts too. Can't expect baseball to win it for us, though.
