I like your rat poison statement. I'm actually beginning to believe and get in the mindset of, we can't and wont depend on a kick. Win it decisively, or don't win at all. Still drives me nuts, but I'm coming to terms with it.
See what AU riding the Gus Bus to completely stain the entire league. I'm convinced they are there just to be a massive thorn in the side of the entire SEC.
I agree with this. They are a great team running the table in their own league, but playing one or two difficult games a year doesn't make you awesome. I love the UCF story and think that any good team should play them anywhere any time. Good teams should prove it. We've seen the G5 undefeated thing before. Years ago i had a friend at work that was constantly giving me hades saying Hawaii was the top team in the nation because they were undefeated, or they should have at least gotten the chance to play for the NC. We see where that ended up. UCF is a great story, I'm happy for them, but it takes more than a short run for them to prove their true worth. It's not an overnight process.
Did Smart take the Bama curse of new OC and DC every year or two. One of the true test of a good coach is managing when that happens. We'll see.
Yuppers. If winning is all it takes, let's just all schedule a season of cupcakes. Problem solved.
Very true. Hopefully he'll play like that against LSU. I love LSU but want UCF to do well. Maybe LSU having people sitting out will level it for a good game.
I love UCF and the storyline, but yeah. These are the cupcake teams on our schedules that everyone complains about being weak. Imagine an entire season of them.
I just see them as the feel good underdog story of the past few years. I'm all for them.
I love LSU, lived there for years, but i can't pull against UCF. I love up and coming teams. Win this and run the table next year and I'd guess they are in. I did a big post about my opinion on why they aren't. The teams they are sweeping are for the most part the cupcakes that are in our schedules, that we complain about. But i see good things if they keep it up. But geaux tigers!
My to cents that i left on a newer article about the same thing... There have been several teams that have been left out. I understand their complaint. But you have to build a program and respect to get their. Good teams get strikes against them for playing a weak out of conference schedule. Some of these weak teams go on to be the leaders in their own conferences. And we're supposed to respect the team/teams that have entire schedules of nothing but that, where they beat them? So big wins some squeezing by?...... NOOOOOOO. They may get to the CFP finals and championship and destroy everyone, but the odds are that they will get destroyed. Who wants to see that? As a Bama fan, is OU and ND the best two they can pick? I'd say no, but i am excited about them. I'm worried about the threats that OU possess on their team. I'm actually glad Bama is playing them instead of ND because i like good games, not blowouts. I'd honestly be as excited and worried about Bama playing Ol Miss again. Any given game day. I like UCF and excited about their success but don't want to see them blasted down a peg.
Oh. And just add to my families dislike of blowouts. My kids wander off to watch youtube, the wife falls asleep, and mother in law starts playing candy crush. That's how most of our games have gone. If it's not close or a game, who cares. Yeah yeah, bama destruction again.
Who knows. We could shut them down completely. They haven't played any good D's all year. We'll see. One thing we do know is that they can't seem to stop anyone, except their D did seem to show up a bit for UT. Should be fun.
One of the reasons I always dislike any stats like this, it's never apples to apples. Season to season and the level of your opponents makes everything apples to oranges. The only half way decent team they played was UT and both games were very close and not their normal stats. I'll apply this to my team Bama too. Your good season in a down season for your conference makes you look like superman. Either way i'm actually excited about the game. Though at this point i feel that our game against UGA was the NC challenge, except for maybe Clemson, who had a down conference season too though. We'll see and I'm excited, so GAME ON AND ROLL TIDE ROLL!

It's all about money and ratings. Love the way they rank them for the best matchups.
Exactly. They do handicap the other teams to open it up and we see the results in the end product. They get blown out. The networks even do this by hyping certain programs to get them in. The end results are very embarising and forgettable.
I'm with you on the "innocent until proven guilty", but from what I know about that place i don't trust them. That's the problem with being a shady character or establishment. You start loosing that benefit of the doubt. As i said it a post above, my wife's friend that's from there and went to school there said she knew people that didn't want to say anything bad about the athletes or else you were just asking for a really hard time.
FSU is notorious for this kind of stuff. A lot about that town, university, and police force came out after the crazy Mr. Krab-legs issues. My wife has a friend that is from there and and went to school there that said a lot of people there are fully aware of it. I used to like the team. Now i have no use for them or good ol' Jimbo and TAMU now because they hired him. He's pure sleeze. Don't get me wrong, i'm sure these big athletes get away with a lot at any of this schools but you really do have to have a line somewhere, and Jimbo and anyone that hires him have sold their souls as far as I can tell.
Completely agree with this. He's fought through a lot. I do think that he may have used this to get out of FL for his dream job of OSU, but still.
Finally, he's going to get his chance. But does that mean more upper mediocre coaches taking over the league? I've always wanted to play them, but his bar has dropped every year because they can't beat OSU.
(should have been in my above post...) he must truely love the sport to fight though his issues to continue on with such a high profile program.
I don't care for him, but he does seem to be a great coach. He's done amazing things under his circumstances. I can't image doing that job wth a brain tumor (?...) or what ever he has. It seems pretty serious by just looking at him on the sidelines lately. Nothing but prayers and best wishes for him.
