  1. Martin Fennelly Weighs in on the FB Season

    This guy, Fennlley, is a USF hater and goes out of his way to make it clear. I don't know why Strong or Harlan doesn't rip his press pass a-la CWT in Eugene. Snarky, cynical, douche.
  2. JK is a red ass. I met him not too long ago. I told him how I felt about USF coverage. He tried explaining that there are other things to cover in Tampa and yaddy yaddy yada. It felt good anyways.
  3. Any pictures or updates from those who are there ?
  4. Caption this...

    Thought it would be something like my **** is bigger than yours. csss
  5. Mitchell Wilcox, Top receiver in AAC

    Couldn't agree more. Needs to know when enough is enough.
  6. This hurts them I believe. One had time on the o-line last year. Hey, does Lovie have control of his team?
  7. I hope we beat their pirate hearts right out of the stadium. They are baseball arrogant who think that if any one team is less deserving to have success it's USF. Read that on their board. Make 'em walk the plank Bulls.
  8. Helmet Schedules

    Tulsa , Memphis , Houston all play ten straight before their bye week.
  9. Former UCF Player Sues School

    Couldn't have happened to a better place than this. Freaking hilarious.
  10. Perhaps Mack Should have Stayed?

    Seems that way
  11. This is pathetic...even for ucf

    Maybe she has some skunk in her? Or lost a bet?
  12. Interesting Rule Proposal

    What do you all think? Proposed college football rule would let redshirting freshmen play in up to 4 games 5 This would be very interesting, if it were to pass. by Morgan Moriarty May 16, 2017, 3:21pm EDT TWEET SHARE PIN REC Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images Remember how up in arms we were about players skipping bowl games, most notably running backs Leonard Fournette and Christian McCaffrey last December? Now, NFL teams proved that they didn’t care that either of these guy sat out during their bowl games, with Fournette going No. 4 overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars and McCaffrey taken at eighth overall to the Carolina Panthers. But there’s a rule being proposed that could settle down the masses who call for star players to play in their teams’ final games of the season. According to Fox Sports’ Stewart Mandel, a new rule is being proposed to the NCAA by the American Football Coaches Association that, if passed, would allow players to play in up to four games during a season without burning their redshirt year. So technically speaking, head coaches could save their four-star signees and beak them out just in time for bowl games, and the player could still redshirt that season. “I think that would be pretty intriguing to some of the fan bases,” said AFCA executive director Todd Berry, via Fox Sports. “Which might legitimize some of those bowl games and make them more interesting.” Following the AFCA’s board meetings last week in Phoenix, Berry said that while McCaffrey and Fournette made headlines, players shutting it down before a lower-tier bowl game is “not a new thing.” While those particular stars dealt with legitimate health issues last season, others in the past might develop a “magic injury” right before the bowl. If this new proposal gets passed, this could greatly help teams that have to burn a former blue-chip’s redshirt after a starter goes down with a season-ending injury. We saw this play out with Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson, with the former five-star recruit having to burn his redshirt last season after Chad Kelly went down with a torn ACL. Patterson ended up throwing for 880 yards and six touchdowns, along with a win over Texas A&M as the Rebels’ starter in the final three games of the year, but Kelly’s injury cost Patterson a season of eligibility. A season in which Ole Miss finished 5-7, mind you. As it stands, a player burns his redshirt the second he enters a game. He can only get it back if he suffers a season-ending injury before he plays in four games. West Virginia also had to use former three-star signee Martell Pettaway last season after Mountaineers running back Justin Crawford suffered an ankle injury in the second-to-last game of the season. “We really haven’t addressed the redshirt rule in quite some time,” WVU head coach Dana Holgorsen said during last week’s Big 12 meetings, via Fox Sports. “We’re playing way more games than we used to — there used to be a 10-game season. They’re looking at it, and I would support it.” Holgorsen isn’t the only head coach to think the proposal is a good idea. During the SEC’s spring meeting teleconference, several head coaches were in favor of it. Here’s what a few had to say, as transcribed by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: Nick Saban, Alabama: “I absolutely would be in favor of that. One of the most difficult things for players is they can’t play at all when they’re freshmen to be able to gain a redshirt year. They all want to play. This would give them an opportunity to play some and would actually enhance their development to some degree. With the numbers we have right now and the number of games we’re playing, you might be able to play a few more players in some of those games. That would help other players on your team as well.” Hugh Freeze, Ole Miss: “I love the new proposal out there. I think it’s needed with everything that’s going on in college athletics. The season’s getting longer. The more physical play, the year-round the toll that’s on [players’] bodies. It’s a great option if you can play freshmen or a kid that’s going through a redshirt year in four games or less. I think it’s a very positive and needed change we need to make.” Mark Stoops, Kentucky: “I think that rule change would make a lot of sense. We were in that situation last year when we had a quarterback hurt early in the year, Drew Barker. We played most of the year with our backup quarterback being a redshirt guy. We decided to keep that redshirt on Gunnar Hoak in Game 11. Played our third-team quarterback, who did some good things. But it was a situation that could’ve benefited us a year ago. It can protect the player in a redshirt year, it can help gain experience for the following year.” This rule would also do away with the need for applying for medical redshirts, which the NCAA now approves for players who apply after they lose a season(s) due to injury. Currently, a player can receive a medical redshirt if he's competed in fewer than 30 percent of the games in a season or three games, whichever is greater. These medical redshirts in the past have given players up to seven years of eligibility. As far as the timeline for this goes, the newly formed Division I Football Competition Committee will talk about the proposal during the upcoming May 16 meeting. If everyone is in agreement, then the proposal gets forwarded to Division I’s Football Oversight Committee, chaired by Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby. That committee could then formally sponsor legislation so it can be considered by the Division I Council. If that happens, there’s a chance it could go up for vote during January’s NCAA convention. We’ll see what the future holds for this proposal. From the early sounds of it, this thing could have a good chance of picking up some steam in the upcoming months.

Jordan James - 3 hours ago 0 x A trio of Illinois football players have been arrested on charges of home invasion and armed robbery. Sophomore offensive lineman Darta Lee, sophomore tight end Zarrian Holcombe and freshman offensive lineman Howard Watkins were arrested Wednesday after an incident at Illinois campus dormitory Bromley Hall, per a report from ESPN. Lee and Holcombe both reside at the dormitory where the alleged incident occurred. Lee played in six games, including two starts last season. Holcombe appeared in seven contests, while Watkins joined the Fighting Illini as an early enrollee in January. As a recruit, Lee was ranked as the No. 85 offensive guard in the class of 2016, per the 247Sports Composite. Holcombe was ranked as the No. 39 tight end in the 2016 class and Watkins joined the team as the No. 49-ranked offensive guard in the 2017 class. Illinois has yet to release an official statement about the arrests, but all three players are expected to appear in court for an arraignment at 1:30 p.m. CT on Thursday.
