The UCF Knights think they deserved a spot in the College Football Playoff after finishing a second-straight regular season without a loss.

The Knights carry a big chip on their shoulder, and ahead of the Fiesta Bowl against LSU, they’re tired of the disrespect they feel they’ve been getting.

As you can see in the video below, punter Mac Loudermilk sounded off on all the criticism the Knights have gotten this year:

“Personally, I’m sick and tired of hearing how UCF couldn’t hang with the big boys,” he said. “We’ve hung with everybody on our schedule the past two years, so if we could silence that nonsense up, I’d be more than happy.”

Yes, UCF has a weak strength of schedule, but Loudermilk is right — you can only play the team in front of you. UCF has done that better than anyone else the past two seasons.
