Guess UCF should fire their great coach since they lost to Cinci.

Your “support?” Now that’s a hoot. I hope they extend Jose through 2099 so we won’t have to listen to your “support.”

Great, I guess you’ll attend about ten games, and contribute hundreds of thousands of dollars during that time.

Enjoy yourself!

Elena Tsineke (Thessaloniki, Greece) led the way for the Bulls with nine points while Sydni Harvey (Nashville, Tenn.) added seven. Bethy Mununga grabbed a game-high tying seven rebounds.

Tamara Henshaw (Palm Coast, Fla.) grabbed five rebounds, against the Huskies, giving her 895 for her career, just five shy of becoming the fifth player in program history to reach the 900-rebound plateau.

How come we haven't met?  Or have we? Assume you are in the coach's club.

I honestly don't think he's a Kanigit  troll ...... but he does have me thinking about reincarnation: https://www.thebullspen.com/profile/10062-ned-a-starr-rip/

There was also a Fire Jose Fernandez account years ago, or something along those lines. Fire Coach Jose maybe. That was my bet for reincarnation.

Next year the conference will have to have the conference tourney somewhere else. You can’t keep it in Connecticut as no one will show up especially since the nearest team would be 4 hours away and temple would not bring 6k fans. 

I don't think it was fair to have it in Conn every single year.  It should have been rotated.  I know the attendance numbers wouldn't have been as good, but its like UConn needed any more built in advantages.

Without UConn the conference tourney would have needed to find a high school size gym facility to play in.

Not necessarily.  Nobody will get UConn crowds....But you don't think we would get a crowd at the YC if our team was playing in the Conference Championship?

I remember when we played Louisville at home in the NCAA's for a trip to the Sweet 16 on the line, and the Sun Dome was electric.
