Knight fans...thanks for supporting your team like true fans do. I live in Memphis, am a Memphis grad (twice) and lifelong supporter (56 years). I have never posted on my own site but am a frequent reader. Ignore the big "DUMP". He is a troll who is beginning to see a shift in Florida and it scares him and, worse, makes him jealous. UCF is on the verge of greatness and as a TIGER fan, I am ready and waiting because the Tigers need you to become a great rival. The game atmosphere came across well on the tube even if the announcers couldn't grasp what they saw. Rompza is the real deal and you have a good foundation at the 2 or 3 in Sosa. JTaylor reminds me of our Rodney Carney and that is a great compliment. CUSA made me mad a couple of years ago when it made Speraw the Coach of the Year but after yesterday I changed my opinion. He is a good coach. This is the last good thing I will ever say about you but know I respect what you are becoming - LET'S GET IT ON.

I have to say. I didn't know UCF had a basketball team until our CUSA turned into what it is today. I was at the game on Saturday and UCF definitely has a great atmosphere. When Memphis was struggling about 8 yrs ago when Cal tookover we used to get up for games against big teams too and it brings national recognition. Memphis still sells out today against the 150 and 200 RPI teams because our fans and teams love that environment. $5 to park...please. I live in Miami and pay $25 for any sporting event parking. UCF has a good thing going and I hope they kill UAB who is the last team that beat us in CUSA a few years ago. By the way, people in Memphis are complaining about the spinners that UCF used to distract the Memphis players from shooting free throws...haha. They didn't need to distract us from shooting free throws. Everyone in America knows that.

You have to wonder if UCF's major sports programs have some sort of curse on them. Neither their football nor basketball team has ever had a significant win. There are plenty of schools lower than UCF that have at least pulled off an upset of at least ONE Top 25 team. But not UCF. Not ever.
