UCF has beaten every team they should have beaten and played all the top teams close. The upperclassmen showed character down the stretch for the second straight game after losing large leads. The schedule gets tough now. Come on out to cheer UCF in their beautiful new arena this Wednesday against a high quality UTEP team. You won't be disappointed with the college game experience. You'll never want to see another pro game again.

Actually, it's only one UCF hater that makes comments on here. That guy from Ft. Meyers. I feel sorry for him.

Big game against UTEP on Wednesday. Ft. Meyers guy should come and see what a fun time he's missing!

The schedule gets tough now?

Dude, we just beat East Carolina the 213th ranked team in the country and UTEP is ranked over 100. Our strength of schedule is down to 130th and falling fast.

Now we are going to make Jermaine Taylor the Kevin Smith of the basketball court. I know the building still smells new and thta is important to you but I think I will hang out somewhere else until they beat some real teams.

My Knights blew it earlier in non-conference games where they had a chance to beat some real teams.

Go Knights, I'll be there when you get it together!

Now now, you have a hate site all your own to post this kind of stuff. Careful now, your hate site may just blow your last chance for a smackdown from USF this Fall.

Can't compete so attack, how pathetic but expected.

It's called College basketball. Google it, you won't find Conference USA listed there.

You never learn, just like football 75-67.

Way to avoid my question and the reality of the Cows Basketball losing streak. Check out this site...CUSA is #1 in college basketball: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/rankings

Here's the real facts: http://www.kiva.net/~jsagarin/sports/cbsend.h...
UCF at #108 and the USF Cows at #104. Looks like the steers are falling fast just like the USF football team. Now jump...jump with another lame reply. And I'm not bitter, just amused. lol!
