Hey! Watch the Sun Bowl all over again



Not sure that many Bulls fans want to go through Monday's 56-21 loss to Oregon in the Sun Bowl again, but if you do, I have exciting news: CSTV is rebroadcasting the game -- Sunday at 7 p.m., Monday at 1 a.m. and 4 p.m. and Tuesday at 2 p.m. ... I still haven't made it all the way through the CBS broadcast, because I feel a need to write things down when they call USF the "Bulldogs" or say that Carlton Mitchell's a true freshman or throw A.J. Love's mugshot up as Nate Allen's. I'm getting there.

Got a ton of comments -- far more than I'd ever imagined -- off Thursday's story on Ben Moffitt's divorce and his wife's admission she took online classes and wrote papers for him at USF. Trying not to upset as many people this time around, so if you're not interested in reading anything more about the topic, then absolutely, positively do not click here. (Those of you with kids, this reminds me of Grover's "Monster at the End of the Book.") Anyway, the link is Saturday's update. Read it if you want, or be just as proud not to, and by all means, offer up your comments, but be polite to all parties involved. Please.

Saturday's a big day for USF basketball, with the men's game at Syracuse on WFTS Ch. 28 in Tampa at noon, then a huge game for USF's women in the Sun Dome at 7 against West Virginia. The Mountaineers are ranked, but haven't really posted an impressive victory yet this year, much like USF. It'll give one team a great start in the Big East, and one win might be the difference between 9-7 and the NCAAs or 8-8 and a trip to the Women's NIT. Can USF's men go into the Carrier Dome and win? It'll take a huge game by Kentrell Gransberry, who ranks fifth nationally in rebounding but faces a tough rebounding frontcourt from the Orange, who lead the Big East in scoring. Some outstanding freshmen in this game, from USF's Dominique Jones to Syracuse's Donte Greene and Jonny Flynn. I should be blogging live from the women's game ...

-- Thought I had an intriguing new possibility for a player joining USF's football roster next week, but just as quickly as he appeared, he was gone. USF had gotten a release from Auburn defensive lineman Bryant Miller, who did not play in two seasons with the Tigers but was a nationally touted recruit out of Miami Central two years ago, playing in the same class with Bulls linebacker Sabbath Joseph. Miller is looking to transfer, but it won't be to USF. Defensive line remains a major priority for the Bulls ...

Oh, and since I got an e-mail from at least one person who thought this was real, I'll offer a link to the Cheetos Unification Bowl, which is getting some fun advertising during this BCS week. My vote is for Crunchy, easily the best option ...
