What's the point of firing a coach after the first game? You basically are giving up on the season.
Heupel is terrible. Can't recruit, can't inspire but you'll throw the ball around a lot.
Gus' shelf life is 5 year. He stayed at Auburn too long.
They must have forgotten about the McElwain, Muschamp and Zook years.
Recruiting rankings are meaningless. They are manipulated so that P5 fans will beat their chest in February. We've seen players gain a star when committing to a top P5 program (Alabama) and lose a star when they commit to a G5 program (UCF).
It's all about the dollar. White's responsibility, just like Mohajir's is to build the UCF athletic department and that means bringing in money. 2 for 1's don't bring in enough money. You make more playing FAMU or Bethune at home. Also, Moharjir didn't say he was open to a 2 for 1, he said his idea of a 2 for 1 is a home, home and neutral game. If you want 2-3 for 1's call usf or F_U.
He ran out of options and he was too stubborn to hire the guy (Steele) who was already on staff. Heupel is a disaster. Tennessee did UCF a favor by taking him.
Get use to the coach speak. "sound in all 3 phases", "want to be multiple", "play for championships". Thank you so much for taking him off our hands.
He just ran out on last "family" and didn't even bother to call them. "Family sticks together".
UCF isn't a good fit for the SEC. I want SEC money but not the road trips. Too bad the metro conference never made it. A conference of city schools with good airports would be fun!
Percy Harvey is an editor and that Gata don't like you. Gradulations.
You do know that adding OU and OSU moves Bama and AU to the east? Not sure you want those problems. :-)
The SEC flirted with WVU. I think they would have been a better fit than Mizzou. Plus it sets up the potential poaching of VT and NC State. Mizzou is more of a Big Ten school and should have been added to the B10 with Kansas. Syracuse is also a good B10 fit. There was no way that the liberal Pac 12 was (or will) ever add BYU.
A simple search on Al Gore's internet would show you that UCF is far from a community college. 2018 average Freshman profile (from the school's websites) Florida SAT: 1360 ACT: 30 GPA: 4.4 UCF SAT: 1328 ACT: 28.3 GPA: 4.12 UCF is also the most applied to school in the state.
For a sport that is suppose to bring joy and entertainment on the weekends, you sure do seem angry buddy. Not sure if you are aware that the recruiting services rate players so that they can make money from subscriptions. Routinely 2-3 star kids with no offers from P5 programs suddenly become 3-4 star players once SEC schools become interested. It's so that at the end of the recruiting cycle guys like you can puff out their chest and say "We have a top 10 recruiting class", a 2 or 3 star will reduce those averages. A lot of those top rated kids never step foot on campus due to grades or other issues. Rating 16-17 year old kids is an inexact science, what's more important is their development over the next 4-5 years. With that being said UCF has more commits this year than ever with multiple (10) P5 offers. Nobody expects UCF to compete with Bama or Clemson in recruiting, especially in just 2 years, but Rome wasn't build in a day either. UCF develops their players well and will continue to get better players in the future, so the future is bright.
You also collect a big check for the program and conference by doing that. It's the system that is.
When will that be because the recruits don't seem to think so.
@Ben7254. Love the revisionist history. Houston played those games at a neutral stadium. USF "home" is a neutral stadium (Bucs stadium) and Boise has been able to sign some deals with the Oregon schools and Washington State which is equivalent to GT, UNC and Pitt that UCF has signed. UCF wants home and homes or neutral site deals. Budget wise it absolutely necessary to have home games in order to fund the other sports. I would love to see a kick off classic game in Atlanta, Orlando or Jacksonville.
@Bamada941 We don't care about your "respect". This is all about money. We want the green!
The recruits seem to disagree. A 4 star signed right after.
Worst OC in the history of football. Check out UCF's 0-12 season, good luck with that.
Coreyalan, please re-read what you just wrote. "The NCAA does not award championships for football; they don’t give out trophies or rings" and "Champions are decided by a system agreed upon in advance by a group of peers." This is the point. The NCAA doesn't recognize a champion in FBS football, so any school that gets awarded a national championship justifies it, look at Alabama and their claimed national championships. The College Football "Playoff" is system that is agreed upon by the "P5" schools that run it.
