University of South Florida Bulls

I seemed to miss them playing in the prelims. One of their players said this was their schedule for the Xball:

South Florida Bulls vs Liberty Flames
Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs South Florida Bulls
Kennesaw State Owls vs South Florida Bulls

The funny thing is I only see them listed in the Race2

Yea, I've been looking around to try and find them in the listings as well, but haven't heard anything about them yet, other than that guy talking a whole lot about how what he makes it seem like he is playing NCPA Xball A div.

Yet the USF Bulls are no where to be found... ?

they were forced to play AA because four of there players were not full time students. Apparently to play A you must have a full roster of full time students.

I heard they were dq'd due to having two non full time students on their roster and are now playing 5-man due to it.

Im not sure who your talking about. The guy from the other site plays for the Bulls and he posted on the other site that they were not allowed to play A so they were forced to play AA because four of there players were not full time students.

So I guess the F in their column in the scoreboard means they forfeited?

From what I heard, they had 4 players that weren't full time so they couldn't play class A. Instead, they tried to play AA which I also heard that they tried playing some non full-time students and were told that they couldn't also.

Whoever made the comment about NCAA, this is the NCPA and as per the rulebook Section 2.1.1, it says:

2.1.1. All players must be eligible to compete in NCPA events. Eligible players must

2.1.1.1. Be enrolled as a full-time student, or
2.1.1.2. Be working full-time in a school-sanctioned co-op program between two semesters of full-time enrollment, or
2.1.1.3. Have been enrolled as a full-time student the previous semester, be enrolled as a part-time student the current semester, and graduating at the end of the current semester, or
2.1.1.4. Have an exemption from the NCPA President or CEO. Exemptions may be granted under certain circumstances, including
2.1.1.4.1. Students accepted in a degree program who are not enrolled for the current semester due to active military service, or
2.1.1.4.2. Graduate students enrolled at least half-time while also employed by the University in a graduate assistantship or completing masters thesis or doctoral certification

seems like the definition of full time is a little vague

How is it vague? Full-time is defined by the school attended and it is generally 12 credits hours per semester.

If you mean the rules I posted, then they have to be full time unless they are a graduating senior that only needs one or two classes or the other exceptions given. I don't see what's hard to understand about it.

It shouldn't have to be defined in the rules. It's defined elsewhere; by the schools, but the state government, by the federal government. Student aid is given based on enrollment (full time/part time) so it's pretty much standard where ever you go. Google "full time student" and let me know what you find.

Do you know the difference between a full time employee and a part time employee?
