Now I am sick

[b]For more than 13 years, every time South Florida played a ranked opponent it ended the same way - with a Bulls loss. There were a lot of blowouts and a few nailbiters, but the same result.

Until Saturday night.

USF upset No. 18 Charlotte 85-73, ending a 35-game losing streak to Associated Press ranked opponents.[/b]


It gets worse…
[b]After waiting 4,758 days to see USF beat a ranked team - the last time was Feb. 24, 1992 at No. 15 Tulane 81-76 - Sun Dome security made USF's students wait a few more minutes to celebrate. Once both teams left, a few dozen USF students stormed the court.[/b]
