This is just adding fuel to the Central Florida fire, but it may also be a dose of reality the Knights need down the stretch of this season.
A hypothetical line released by Todd Fuhrman via Dave Mason of BetOnline.ag suggests that Alabama would be a 31-point favorite over UCF in a potential national championship game. Not only is Alabama a two-touchdown favorite against any other contender outside of Clemson, this Vegas line has the Knights as 31-point underdogs.
UCF AD Danny White has been a consistent critic of the college football system that has kept the Knights from competing in the College Football Playoff. While UCF has a strong winning streak, its weak schedule is repeatedly called into question.
White has ranted against a host of college football figures, including ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit, who recently called out the Knights on College GameDay. White responded with a lengthy Twitter post.
Some fans have pointed out that Alabama recently doubled the spread on the road at LSU in a 29-0 victory, and this game would be on a neutral field thousands of miles from either campus.
It’s unclear how long this feud will continue with White leading the charge, but it appears to have legs until the Knights suffer a loss.
Pretty sure @UCFDannyWhite won't be happy to see this…
