    Last night, more like early this morning, a strange thing happened. I got an email asking me to renew a subscription to a news letter from a old bulletin board web site. One I thought had been defunct for years. I went to the web site to check it out and found that it, in fact, had not been posted on since early in 2011. Then I saw a happy birthday notice. When I looked at the member name, I realize it was what Birdfan called himself on...

    The heck with Washington. Go Vegas. As a USF fan, I simply cannot say the other thing. I throw up a little when I do that. :D

    Actually central Florida. However, the area he is from, Polk County, is riddled with drug problems.

    For Admiral Farragut Academy in St. Pete grades 8 through 12, with the student living at home, the cost is about $24,000/year. If the student is to be boarded on campus, US citizen rates are about $42,000/year for 5 day boarding, over $49,000/year for 7 day boarding. International students must pay over $52,000/year and must live on campus. Summer rates are not included in those figures.

    An op article from Spencer Hall. The emphasis is on current rivalries, though I have no idea why he left out UofL/UK, because they more than meet his criteria. Oklahoma/West Virginia seem outside of his boundaries, but is included. OSU/Michigan and OSU/Michigan State are on the list, but not UF/FSU. Not Georgia/Florida. The pie charts are funny, too. "Fried Food" is a category in one of them. "Pain, Endless Pain in All Directions" the...

    Working. Didn't see it. The Bolts were 33 seconds short of going the last 8 periods of the series without a goal. It should be interesting to see what Stevie Y does during the off season.

    I am totally surprised Florida scheduled USF at all. They have been avoiding that for years. It makes sense from their point of view. They gain nothing if they win and can take a big hit in the rankings if they lose. In fact, Florida only schedules Florida State, because they have to. Given that exception, they normally never play an OOC game away from The Swamp. Last year's opener was a one off. Therefore, the visit to Tampa in 2023 is kind...

    If it were up to me, all OOC games would be against P5 opponents. If the conference is to get no respect, go get what respect you can. Any place, any time, should be the program motto.

    Normally that is the case. However, I guarantee that will not be the case if the home game is Florida. If fact, the last time Florida State played here, it was a sellout, though it looked like the place had tons of empty seats. Everybody stayed in the Stadium Clubs because it was so hot. This is a bandwagon town. There is no denying it. When USF was in the Big East, they drew 60K a game. The only time they draw, now, is when a major P5...

    Charlie Strong was on South Carolina's staff at one point, right? They should replace UMass with the Gamecocks and make OOC 2022 complete. :)

    Thanks, nWo. It's been raining pretty much constantly since Saturday. Typical Florida summer drive home from work, today. Hard rain. Sunshine. Hard Rain. Sunshine. Rinse and repeat. I only live 7 miles from work. :)

    There is at least one SEC team in 7 of the 8 Super Regionals. 2 of those Super Regionals feature 2 SEC teams, meaning 9 of the 16 teams in the Super Regionals are from that conference. Of the remaining teams, 5 are from the PAC 12 and 1 is from the ACC.

    At one point in this rain delayed marathon the Eagles lead 17-8, but Tech worked their way back and ended any hope of a MSU second seed with a grand slam homer in the top of the ninth. MSU still goes into the OVC tournament as a 3 seed.

    Gainesville Regional. USF downed Bethune-Cookman in the losers bracket. OSU scored 3 in the 3rd to overcome an early South Florida 2-0 lead. OSU was to play Florida in the Regional Final at noon today, but I believe they are having weather delays. Ohio State needs to take two from the #2 ranked Gators.
