My comments. Keep an eye on UCF Basketball as the year progress.

UCF BASKETBALL WILL BE IN THE FINAL FOUR THIS YEAR. My write up after watching the game: I'm going to buy some tickets for future games. UCF basketball is going to be really good this year. I can see this team in the NCAA tourny and going deep into it. UCF basketball is very tall, deep talent, and well coached. They need to work on free throws like usual (hold back from donnie jones free throw curse). 6'11" Collin Smith is going to be an absolutely super star. Tacko (now listed at 7'7") is playing very great defense. Senior Chad Brown fouled out with his energy and toughness. Senior (best UCF player ever) BJ Armstrong took over a segment of the game with ball control and a team high 22 points. Terrell Allen a secret weapon dagger in the heart shooter. Aubry Dawkins (6'7" Coach's son) is very tall and physical and plays tough defense and quick and smart on fast breaks. He was off on 3 point shots but if he starts hitting that. UCF is UNSTOPPABLE. Oh yeah, DeJesus. Go Knights UCF 84 Rider 70 Final.

LOL. You guys will see. Just wait. I was super impressed with them last night. They definitely need improvement in some aspects of the game but they got it together at the end.

This team will make the NCAA tourny and probably go deep into it. hoping for final 4! Go Knights!

Rider of course doesn't have a 'name' however they did win the MAAC last year and favored to win it again. They returned all 5 starters. They looked small compared to UCF.

ESPN Joe Lunardi has UCF in as a ten seed preseason.

UCF hasn't been in the NCAA tourny in a very loooooong time. This is the team to do it.

UCF was playing twin towers 6'11 Colin Smith and 7'7" Tacko Fall for most the 2nd half. Rider couldn't get a shot off.

Colin Smith who is a transfer from Georgetown I think was very impressive. At 6'11" he was handling the ball and running up and down the court like a point guard. Hope he stays healthy. NBA talent in my opinion with that size.

"I was super impressed with them last night." No kidding? Really? Hard to believe. Of course if the UCF cafeteria served shit sandwiches, you would be proclaiming they were better than Nutella.

Well, I'll let the season play out. You guys will see at the end. I'll be here. It is not just me, the media predicts UCF will win the American conference. go ahead and piss on the American in Basketball. That will be interesting to see you do that!

Knock on Wood! Wee, this is fun!

The AAC is a significantly better BBall conference than it is Football conference .... course it pretty much blows chunks as a football powerhouse.

And yes, in the end we will see, cause regardless of Garcia personal opinion, The NCAA runs a damn fine National Championship Tournament in roundball, that is immensely popular, successful and does an excellent job of truly determining who the best teams are and who is Nat Champion.

I am still waiting on a wager number from you Dave ..... I will even give you to the start of the conference schedule.

No where in my report in last night's game did I say I wanted to gamble on my prediction. I'm a fanatical fan. I can say outlandish things like that because I hope it comes true, not that I want to win or lose money on it.

That would be a bad bet anyway. But, I do think UCF makes the tourney this year and goes deep. Final Four would be awesome. I like UCF team this year. They look good.

I never said that the basketball tournament was not a damn fine tournament. If you had read my post, you wouold understand that the point I made was that what works for basketball (after more than 50 years of refinement and expansion) would not work for football.

This is the danger of getting all fired up when your squad beats the "Rider" collages of the world.

You will learn one day young grasshopper.

Its early season. FAU had a shot with one second to go to win. I was like really. I'm thinking the team will learn from it. At one point ucf had a 20 point lead and the let off the gas. FAU couldn't miss shots. The game could have gone either way at the end and we went up by 1 point with only a few seconds on the clock. But, it hurt losing. FAU I don't think are that good. Rider looked like a better team. Its basketball. an early season loss may help the team in the long run. Looking for a silver lining. LOL.

FYI, UCF vs West Kentucky on ESPN2 this Sunday afternoon (Nov 18th). 6:30pm. Final game of a week long tourny. West Kentucky beat West Virginia to get there. UCF beat two teams. Cal-Fullerton and St Joseph's to get to final. Tune in. Final Four!
