Way to blow an excellent team out and put the game away. Nice to MOD snap out of his 3-pt shooting slump, too. With Billings injury tonight, it's back to a 6-7, 6-4, 6-3 front line most of the game, laughably short. It just shows what a genius Speraw is! How else to explain a reserve sub-6' guard corraling 8 rebounds? But Houston and UAB be major challenges next week. UCF has not beaten any teams that good all season, though they've played them all close. Just hope that Billings can return before conference tourney time.

OMG I am soooo excited! Next up SMU the 286th ranked team in the Country! I just know everything is going to click for that game too!

We are the Kings of Conference USA! I never want to have to step outside the bubble ever ever again!

I go jump jump now for Basketball. This is just like the miracle turnaround in Football when we started playing Conference USA teams. It is magical!

Watchout SMU the Knights are going to come to town.

"It's become increasingly clear that this Memphis squad is the cream of the crop in a weak C-USA; the other teams simply don't compare."

"Following a rough first couple years, Southern Miss’ third-year head coach Larry Eustachy has the Golden Eagles sitting at 9-2 and playing good basketball. How good? Well, that remains to be seen. Their schedule is so weak that long-time ESPN college basketball analyst and commentator Dick Vitale cracked on them earlier this season during a telecast."

"Memphis has been forced to schedule stiffer nonconference opponents to compete with teams from bigger conferences who are tested nearly every league game."

THOSE ARE ARTICLES FROM OUTSIDE THE BUBBLE, SENTINEL MAKE THE VOICES STOP. JUMP JUMP

29 point win against a team that has won a national championship and has 16, yes, 16 NCAA tourney appearances is quality. They also have the leading scorer in C-USA (the 9th ranked basketball conference in america).

Still waiting for USF to win their conference. In basketball, baseball or football. Waiting and waiting and waiting. Loser.

What makes you think that anyone who isn't a UCF fan is automatically a USF fan?

Because only USF fans are more obsessed with UCF than they are with their own school. This is common knowledge.

Ho hum, when you grow up and play with the adult teams you will understand that there is much more to College sports. Now go back and ask the coach if you can have a bathroom break before it is time for Conference USA nap time.

Awwhhhh, how cute.

No w now Kevin, go to your new USF hate site and post that kind of comment. Yeah, a site devoted to hating USF brought to you by UCF dummies and a UCF hate site run by UCF dummies that is inactive.

obsessed, hmmm

One more slap down this fall and it is all over. One last time for jerks to ride the bull statue in Tampa. One last opportunity to attack the family of players.

Hey I see USF is play Notre Dame. What a hoot if Notre Dame played UCF at UCF. Everyone could gather around the statue at the stadium of OLeary working on his resume.

Maybe some of us are just tired of having an embarrassment of a school like UCF representing our city. Orlando has already become known for its myriad of minor league sports teams - WLAF, XFL, minor league Hockey, etc. Now we have a minor-league college masquerading as a 'big time' school, simply because UCF will allow practically anyone to enroll. I keep hearing people brag about how many students UCF has, as if that's a good thing.
