    You have an attitude that is afraid of competition. That will always fail in the long run. I’m hoping USF learned from their mistakes and is now ready to take on competitive head on. We can no longer be scrared. I say bring it on. And if UCF does get P5 then I will be a man and say congrats to them.

    At least we will be better for having said we played with them and helped them to move up, in a way when they move up it’s kind of like the entire AAC moves up. Only we don’t get any of the money, national respect or attendance bump, so really it doesn’t help us at all. 🤢

    This is just simply not true. Pulling for other teams is just simply dumb, but stupid people wouldn’t have you believe that.

    My boxing analogy is perfect. Do you want to see ur favorite boxer fight a man with a losing record or a winning record? You want the fight to have high stakes.

    So what is the measuring stick you're using to declare the AAC better than coaches, sports writers, the CFP committee, and nearly 100 computers think it is? Coaches: I guess I can accept it's possible that coaches from the P5 would be biased against the non-P5, but it doesn't explain why the other half of the coaches poll (the coaches from the non-P5 that have a vote) didn't give UCF any respect either. Including other coaches from the AAC. Writers: I don't doubt at all that ESPN and other media over-hype the P5 and certain teams. But it doesn't mean they're wrong, either. For instance, bacon. Bacon is the thing everywhere these days. People put it on or around or in everything. There's an entire industry of bacon related products. All of that is kind of annoying and probably a bit too much. It's also true that bacon is better than pretty much everything else on Earth. the CFP committee: Yeah, they're most likely the ones with the most to gain by keeping the non-P5 down. They don't really give the non-P5 much respect. They also haven't snubbed a non-P5 team, yet. UCF didn't deserve a spot this year, W. Michigan didn't before them. Computers: https://www.masseyratings.com/cf/compare.htm Are all of these in on the conspiracy? Are there any you trust? What is Jeff Donchess's motivation for hating the AAC, even though he's a UCF graduate? In case you didn't count the number of polls on that page, it was 97. 97 out of 97 computers have us the 6th best conference.

    I guess I really don’t get what the confusion is. Anything based off of ranking and/or SOS is going to downgrade the AAC unjustly. That is really the bottom line.

    ArmyBull checked the math and says the AAC is definitely the 5th best conference, maybe the 4th, but probably the 3rd.

    I noticed that UGA, PSU, Wisconsin and OSU were all ranked #1 in one or more of those rankings ..... Have to assume those state legislatures are all firing up national champion license plate campaigns.

    I am not even talking about Ucf. The point is that if our conference was not extremely under valued we would be the 4th or 5th, maybe even the 3rd best conference. If our teams were ranked were they should be, Ucf would have been a “quality” loss. Conference ranking is based on those same subjective perceptions that kept the AAC down, so what makes the AAC the 6th best conference, because we were told so?

    I got 7. The four who went, plus Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Penn State. Sorry, the Big Ten is a tougher conference.

    But their body of work was deemed unimpressive by the “powers that be” Memphis should have been ranked higher, we should have been ranked higher, etc... Thier body of work was unimpressive because those in power downgraded the whole AAC. Everyone can feel how they want about ucfs silly National title claim, but they have been setting the narrative instead of having it set for them. Thier fight benefits us as current members of the G5 (another narrative that is now accepted). Not all the pub they are getting is negative, not by a long shot. We are three weeks removed from the National Championship game and people are still talking about it. From a marketing standpoint, it has been impressive.

    This has nothing to do with cheering for UCF and hoping they get credit for their fake national championship. And by the way, growing up a FSU fan, I completely enjoyed every whooping we put on the gaytors. And as a Bulls fan, I was ecstatic about each and everyone of those first 4 whippings we put on ucf.

    UCF's 13-0 season got the Bulls all the way to the 99th ranked schedule this year. UCF's 13-0 record and 73rd ranked schedule got them to the Peach Bowl and a fake national championship. So much for that theory. Proceed with your thumbs down now ....

    Things seemed more interesting without UCF in our life, we don’t need them to do anything beyond die. That a few more people found the bore on I-4 interesting this year does not mean it’s needed that undefeated team could have been replaced with anyone (and almost anyone would have been a bigger name).

    Or they can go 0-12 with that only loss being to everyone.

    "Mr. Flutie, you got this message from something called TheBullsPen. They wanted to let you know that Quinton Flowers will not make it as a quarterback in the NFL -- he needs to play another position."

    Would UCF leave for the P5 without us? Does improving their brand increase their likelihood of moving into the P5? Is anyone’s end game to improve the G5 or is it to move onto the P5? Are you sure that their success is mutually beneficial and it’s really not every man for themselves as it has been in every other round of expansion? This isn’t a brotherhood it’s a den of thieves and every team would be willing to **** their “brothers” throat in order to advance, we aren’t a team what’s good for us is good for us and what’s bad for them is good for us (until someone actually makes it into the ark lined up in twos).

    Q will not make it as a QB in the NFL. He needs to play another position.

    Lol the OCS is our only hope. We need UCF to keep wining so that it moves USF closer to that all important OCS. We may have lost a lot is season tickets by not having an OCS. You have to believe.

    But let me stress. USF must beat UCF every year from here on out. UCF can go 11-1 as long as that loss is to USF while we go 13-0

    I'd ask if you're serious about not knowing how the CFP works, but I'd guess that's a 50/50 prop, at best.

    Yep any team that won’t play every lower level team looking for a hand up by taking a swing at them is doomed for failure. I weep for Alabama’s future, they are so confident with all of the championships and they don’t even know they are destined for failure by not playing Troy enough.

    You nailed it in your last sentence. No, I think USF got lazy while we were in BCS. Seems like USF felt entitled to a lot when we actually got a gift invite. Look at the fan base now and tell me that they are not spoiled by it ? We needed UCF to pass us up so that changes can be made. All UCF’s success does now is make USF get more on the ball!! Think Coke vs Pepsi. Both those companies make each other better. You actually think people would have been interested in watching War on I4 if UCF was not good ?? Wake up!! Both USF and UCF took steps forward this season as both are on the upswing. We need this.

    Nah as then it would make War on I4 less interesting. We need both doing well to move forward. Grow interest. Grow fanbases. People were right about both UCF & USF need to be the game of the AAC

    Can’t call BS on something that you are flat out wrong about. UF fans were pulling for UGA over GT and also to win all their out of conference games. It helps their SOS and conference perception. Since UCF is in same conference as USF, they are conference brothers. Sorry, but I could feel nothing but happy when they beat Auburn as I know it made USF game against them look better and brings in more respect. I guess you will never get it much like you will never get having an OCS. It must be above your head which is cool cause not many would understand.

    That is actually false. Know a lot of UF fans that pull for UGA when they are not playing each other. They do it for strength of the conference and also to make their rivalry more interesting.
