And how is this article related to the SEC and/or college football? Just curious.
Are you going to be joining him in that remedial English class to(o)?
So we're using that photoshopped UCF sign. Again. Funny how some SEC fans are the ones who keep obsessing over UCF Football. Weren't you ever taught to ignore pests, and they will get bored and go away? You see them as pests, and you are NO better, baiting them at every opportunity. And--just like this sign--if there is no reason for baiting them, you simply create one. Seriously, guys--just grow up and ignore them. At this point, you're simply coming across as classless bullies. Ignore UCF and concentrate on your own inter-conference problems
Please note that the "organization" that put up the GoFundMe is in no way officially connected to either UCF or to the Knights. As a matter of fact, last year their pet project was investigating (and criticizing) the UCF presidential search committee. Knight News is a sad and delusional group, much like the small (but very vocal) portion of the UCF fanbase whose goal seems to be to embarrass those of us who are realistic in our support of the team and the university.
And I'm almost embarrassed for you. For comments to be "taken serious," the grammar used must be at least on a basic level. SeriousLY.
The vast majority of UCF fans are realistic, and are embarrassed by the antics of a very small--and very delusional--portion of our fanbase. Allow me to point out that, sadly, the UF fanbase has its own delusional segment.
coreyalan, thank you for proving my point so clearly, with each and every line you wrote. "We’re better than UF" : I am a Gator fan, have been all my life. So who is "we"? "Ummm no, here’s some facts" : Okay, I'm waiting for those "facts." "No fair no fair you have no class! Why do you hate us? You’re mean!" Another nonsensical statement, having nothing to do with my comment, which was directed at the OP. But thanks for adding your voice to the discussion and bolstering my point!
Coreyalan, I don't know when your friends graduated, but I attended (and graduated from) UCF, and their GPA standard, at its lowest, was 3.2. And here is last year's freshman profile: UCF FALL 2018 FRESHMAN CLASS PROFILE 1328 Average SAT Score 28.3 Average ACT Score 4.12 Average High School GPA 82 National Merit Scholars (Info copied/pasted from prepscholar dot com)
Man, UF fans are more classless than FSU fans--or maybe it's just a *few* UF fans, with less education and bigger mouths than the rest of us.
d0kk3n: Mississippi State University requires: a GPA/SAT/ACT of 2.0/860/16 University of Central Florida requires: a GPA/SAT/ACT of 4.12/1320/28. So--using your logic--I suppose that would make Mississippi State, Middle School Community Center!
Citronaut99, jbattle77 is correct. Mississippi State requires a GPA/SAT/ACT of 2.0/860/16, whereas UCF requires a GPA/SAT/ACT of 4.12/1320/28.
UCF acceptance rate: 49%. UF acceptance rate 48.6% Yeah, I see your point, Gatordontplaynosh*t--the difference in those two numbers is staggering, isn't it! Full disclosure: I am a lifelong Gator fan and UCF is my alma mater ('80). UF is clearly the superior university, and without a doubt has the better, more prestigious athletic program. I only wish that the Gator fanbase, as a whole, had as much class as the UCF fanbase. UF has been playing football for 112 years. UCF has been playing football for 39 years. We've all gotta start somewhere, don't we? Go Gators! Charge on, Knights! And a happy new year to everyone!!
Aww, c'mon! This is SDS--of course it's clickbait! :)
Obviously not a Bama fan, but I'm always appreciative of human compassion and good wishes--thanks!
As a passionate Knights football fan since 1979 (when I was a student there (class of '80), I'd like to apologize for those new to our fanbase who are really blowing things out of proportion. It was a wonderful Cinderella season, and we should be--and are--very proud of that. Those of us who've believed in the team since the beginning will continue to maintain a realistic attitude. Those who've overexcitedly jumped on the bandwagon will, I hope, go quietly away once all the hoopla dies down. I believe that we are a good team that deserves a shot at a stronger conference. I do NOT believe that a bunch of bandwagon "fans" should be trying to force games on them for which they are not ready. Just my opinion; ymmv.
SwampThing, this lifetime Gator/SEC fan and proud UCF alumnus thanks you for your kind and realistic comment. You, sir, have class.
Come on, guys. UCF is having fun with their Cinderella season, and harming no one. Alabama and Georgia have other things on their minds, and couldn't care less what the little ol' AAC champs have to say. And I say, this is good publicity that might cause someone to think for a second about whether UCF deserves placement in a stronger division. Football is supposed to be fun. Competition and rivalries should be fun and healthy, and should make each team want to play their best, always. What's wrong with any of that? (UCF alum, '80)
Congrats to you too! Now those Dawgs need to bring it home! Best of luck!!!
Lifelong Gator (and SEC) fan--but I think it's okay if I show a little pride today in my alma mater's team. UCF deserves a better conference.
Amen! (proud UCF alumnus, class of '80--was there in '79, the Knights' first game ever!)
And.... Auburn who? All the experts blew that one. Love the Gators and the SEC, but right now, I am one proud UCF alumnus! (Class of '80)
Thanks! And the points you've made are excellent. Best of luck in the game--although I imagine that the Knights will need all the luck against your outstanding team. Go Knights, Go Tigers, let's have fun!
I'm a UCF alum, and I'm so proud of the Knights I could burst! But do I think they deserve a spot in the playoffs because they won the AAC? Do I really want to watch them play against an SEC team? No, and no. They are undefeated, they won the AAC championship, they are going to the Peach Bowl. What more (based on SoS) could a Knights fan want?
Paul Harvey, please delete the portion of your article concerning the Sanders Facebook statement--she made no such statement. Your info came from an unverified community page titled in her name. The mods of that page wrote the statement, not Ms. Huckabee-Sanders. sigh....
The Sarah Huckabee Sanders Facebook page on which the comment about Schiano appears is NOT her verified page. It is a COMMUNITY page, simply using her name. Gee, it would be nice to see journalists take the two minutes I took to verify/debunk information prior to publishing it as "fact".
As a fellow SEC fan (yeah, I know that my alma mater, UCF, isn't SEC, isn't ANYTHING except one of the two remaining undefeated teams in the COUNTRY... but I digress), the Tennessee Vols have my full support on this issue. And I'm proud of the way your fanbase is standing up to Currie.
