    We Made It!!

    UCF does not have it (just like USF a few years ago there's a plan in place to get there) but this is also just a thing for public schools in Florida. So only UF, FSU, and USF have it.

    Pre-eminent status rings or it didn't happen.

    Please do this. Then I'll have to respond with the "you got me there" meme.

    Critiquing Joey Knight

    We were trying to be discrete when sending our agent into enemy territory. Didn't work.

    Mark Harlan to Utah

    Harlan was good but I think you guys can do better. And really the schools at the top of the G5 really NEED better to survive. He made good hires, seems to have gotten some good fundraising, but still could've done more marketing wise to raise your profile. I know most of you in here hate the UCF way but your social media needs more oomph. This should be an attractive opening for rising star ADs.

    USF's possibilities to crash the 2019 CFP

    Zero unless you believe you can win the AAC this year and win a NY6 bowl. That's really the only way to do it as a G5. 2 year process. Really the 2021 OOC looks very beatable so run the table that year, win the AAC and NY6, and now you're in position because of the teams you play in 2022. That's how Houston almost got in if not for getting tripped up in conference play.

    College football rivalries... USF/UCF mentioned

    I think it's just a dig on how USF basketball bottomed out, nothing to do with how UCF has been doing. Our whole basketball history has been consistently mediocre outside of May be a few years in the ASUN and our NIT run last year.

    USF football tier 2 in the AAC

    Obviously I'm biased but being in the AAC for 5 years together has resulted in 3 conference titles and 2 NY6 bowl wins for UCF and 0 of each for USF, who has a head start access to BCS bowls. Also, only using the last 3 years is a little shady since it happens to coincide with when Coach T revived you guys and we imploded. If you look at all 5 AAC years it's USF 35-27 and UCF 42-24. Which honestly, that's not that big of a difference. But the conference titles and major bowl wins are.

    Can USF FB Get to 10 Win? CBS Sports Says Nope!

    Milton still being here and you guys losing the best player in USF football history will do that. Flowers was a one man wrecking crew and it still fell just short. You guys lost key pieces too but right now while so little is known about your next QB, UCF is the safer pick. Things change though once the season starts. I thought y'all really were gonna go undefeated and felt we would win between 6 and 8 games depending on how our offense developed.

    Why is the USF beat writer . . .

    As long as you understand it will be your fault alone that USF doesn't get into the Big 12. For shame.
  11. UCF_rustbucket

    Why is the USF beat writer . . .

    Can't believe I'm defending the USF fan base but I'm not sure what Joey Knight even wants from you guys. It's an exhibition game at a school still building tradition (just like UCF) in a town with lots to do on the weekend. And on top of that, Corbett Stadium can only hold so many people. It obviously wasn't going to be 10k like Memphis and is still near the top of the American.

    Can we schedule FSU in 2020?

    It would have to be in Tally in 2019 or 2020 and if they agree to a home and home, the Tampa game would be 2021 or later since it looks like for 2019 and 2020 they would want a 6th home game.

    USF Athletics's Social Media Presence

    Valid point. I can't speak for the UMBC accounts since I never saw them before their big moment, but the UCF accounts have had personality before the peach bowl win. It definitely makes it more fun for me as a fan. If you look on the UCF Knights Instagram, they post some pretty funny memes and stuff when we win. There are some good ones when we swept UF in baseball. They even respond back to the butthurt gator fans.

    Back again to provide my rust bucket insight. I'm 100% in agreement with @Bull Dozer. There is no magic bullet. At most, you hope these things help you keep up with the Jonses so you don't automatically disqualify yourself if the opportunity to join a P5 league actually ever comes around again. But between the 2, due to USF's current situation, I go with IPF. If it's not stupid hot outside in Florida, it's rainy with lightning. Both and IPF and OCS are important to have if you wanna be among the best and draw the best recruits and fans. But you guys have the ability to rent a luxury stadium. You don't really have that option for an IPF. So build what you can't rent and then when money allows for another big investment, go for the OCS.

    Your take on this past football season

    All great on my end. 13-0, national champs*! But no really. The USF season was kind of a mixed bag, at least from my outside perspective. Fell short of preseason expectations since many had USF going undefeated but ended with 2 losses instead. And it sucks even more when your rival has the season you were supposed to have. But it still added another 10 win top 25 season to your resume, now in back to back seasons.
