Yeah the fake cannon had sound. It was a horrible clip art style cannon on the big screen. The fireworks from the theme parks is louder than a real cannon was. I hear those fireworks every night; the neighbors can deal with 6-7 events a year.

UCF vs Juarez....I mean UTEP at 7 pm.

Could be a trap game.....but it better NOT be.

A win is a win.

UCF struggled against UTEP, howling winds didn't help......Murray again produces a huge TD run in the clutch with the game tied in the 4th.

8-2, nice......but that Mizzou game still destroys any credibility of the record with CUSA being such a doormat of a conference.

UCF opened the remodeled Sun Dome against USF, and left with a well-rounded win 74-56.

UCF, by reports, had about 2K attend.....I don't know about the amount of people, but they definitely were vocal.

The team dominated the boards, hit open shots, and just outplayed USF in almost every facet. UCF lost three expected starters before the season (Reed, Jordan, Crittle), but Sykes was amazing 26-11-8 in his first career start at PG.

I gotta say that I don't miss Jordan at all, it appears that his teammates from last year don't either. And as energetic as Rompza was, the fact is that he really did not offer very much production for his time spent on the floor.

Depth will be an issue for UCF, but great start to the year.....

The Knights seem likely to start getting coaches votes in the polls.

Sykes is going to have a special season and I hope he gets NBA scouts showing up for him.

Congrats to the women's soccer team for knocking off the Hurricanes in a shootout.

I knew the football team would have some trouble with UTEP, but they didn't panic and got the job done.

Next week at Tulsa is at noon, and our final game to close out the season at home will be at noon as well.

30th in the AP I believe, and 33rd in Coaches. I think.

16 vote points in the AP. This puts my Knights just below my Badgers at the 30th best team.

(I cannot image what I would do if Wisconsin played Cent. Fl.).

Perfect timing. UCiF hadn't won in Tampa since the 1970's.

Pretty humiliated by this loss. Not sure if Holtz has been involved with the basketball team.

Hopefully we can return the favor in Jan.

Basketball has been competitive for the last few years between the schools.

I find it hard to be excited about the season and being 2-0 considering post season play is off the table.

Yeah, but it'll still be fun watching this team be a PIA with their athleticism and length.

Agreed. I really wish Clanton had another year like Sykes. Sykes has continued his yearly development it seems and is going to have a big year. The only thing to get excited about is seeing how the players have developed from last year or how our new players are. and to watch Keith try and get some attention for the draft.

But it's going to be tough to stay interested at all 15 games in with nothing to play for but pride. I guess maybe play to get into the top 25?

Watch us make an appeal. :lol:

The fooball game today should have been on the ESPN family of networks, it's been getting decent hype to my surprise. Get Latavius the ball and move the **** out of the way.

I wonder if they'll draw 20K

Close game 16-14......but it looks like this one's gonna get away from UCF.

If I ever see a run of calls for bubble screens again I will throw up. 10 straight incompletions, probably 8,9 were the same freaking play.

Sounds cliche, but game wasn't as close as the score. Just never really felt like we were ever going to win that game. Props to Tulsa...they have some really talented kids on their squad...will be seeing #2 in my nightmares.

Return to Orlando Magic
