  1. I'm not happy with yesterday's press conference nor what I've heard from former players. That's not even getting into the product on the field. But i'd be: 1) Holding closed door meetings with current players, making sure to have a sampling of players graduating (those who can speak their mind now), and freshman/redshirt freshman in the program. 2) Making phone calls late tonight or tomorrow to former players (MVS, Q, etc..) who played under this current regime. I'd need to know whether this locker room has been lost from top to bottom. I don't see a recovery being possible if Charlie has a mutiny on hand. Or I need to find out if its just a few bad apples (Gilbert) poisoning the whole well. There's something rotten going on in the locker room and no system change is going to work unless you rectify that first. I see zero reason in waiting til after the bowl game to make a decision. I need to know if this locker room is lost, and we need to cut ties now and do damage control to keep the talent on this team together, or I need to give a Charlie an ultimatum in getting rid of those bad apples. Wait too long in this process and you run the risk of not only losing current players, but have recruiting take a dive. What offensive talent in Florida is going to see that offense and be like thats the system I want to play in. We wasted tremendous offensive talent last year under this system. No one wants to see a repeat next year with all the talent that is returning.
  2. Just as a reminder that we were a 9-2 team last year (regular season), who lost the following: 3-year starter and All Conference starting QB Top 3 rushers, including all rushing TDs Top WR Top tackler and starting MLB Top D-lineman That's not including that our new starting QB has only been with the program for a few months and that we seem to be unlucky with the injury bug this season. All that, and this young team still has a possibility to match those 9 regular season wins - I'd consider that a pretty good rebuilding year. I think we've been spoiled the last couple years since the core of that team was starting when they were freshman/sophomores and haven't witnessed a rebuilding team in a while. Its definitely frustrating to watch at times, but new starters and freshman are going to make mistakes. All things considered, no matter how heart-attack inducing some of our games have been, I'd call this season a fair success at this point (and likely the same by the end of the year).
  3. War Flamingo aint havin none of it from the no fun police
  4. Winning a conference championship means didly squat if you don't get the NYD bowl. Who cares if we win the conference but are relegated to the who cares bowl vs 7-5 Duke.
  5. I'll never get the people who are determined not to admit this is a rivalry. IT IS. And that is good. College football is about rivalries. Thats what keeps fan ticking even for teams that never accomplish anything. You always have that rivalry game to root for. And the whole thing smacks of our fans thinking small time. Just like we hate the whole P5 thing, its time to move past the "big 3". The reality of it is that the USF v UCF game was the biggest (most impactful) rivalry game in the state of Florida last year. More important than FSU v UF. More important than FSU v UM. And for the 2nd year in a row, thats likely to be true again this year. The arrogant big 3 fans can scoff all they want, but both UCF and USF were better than both UF and FSU last year, and likely again this year (and arguably as good or better than Miami both years). And the way both teams are constructed, they very likely may still be better than them all for the 3rd year in a row next year. Ask yourself....what would mean more this year? Beating UCF on Black Friday, or beating FSU in a bowl game this year?
  6. The only thing that matters about that ranking is if you're listed 1-4. Anything after that is as relevant as the AP or Coaches poll.
  7. Except the ACC is never going to happen. If they ever go to 16, it will be ND and one of UConn or Cincy.
  8. Not just the numbers and font, but seems the recycle uniform designs as well. (same road tread or whatever its suppose to be design): Would not be a fan of the move from UA to Adidas
  9. We had a lot of our second string playing in most of those games 4th quarter as well. To account for that: After 3 quarters, USF led those opponents by +97 After 3 quarters, UCF led those opponents by +106 A 9 pt difference, or again, about 2 pts a game. Also, USF out-gained those opponents by 891 yards, UCF by only 464. Not trying to do an indepth analysis here, just really pointing out that by common opponents, these are two very evenly matched teams, and any perceived "divide", may just be that.... perceived.... and not reality. We'll find out in a few days.
  10. Didn't see anyone do this yet, but when comparing our divisional common opponents, the "divide" that some seem to perceive between us and them really isn't there. Yeah, they've had the opportunity to prove themselves vs a couple more solid teams than we have (but we don't know how we would have faired vs Memphis, SMU or Navy this year). So looking within our division: vs ECU; USF (61-31) + 30 pts; UCF (63-21) +42pts vs Temple; USF (43-7) +36 pts; UCF (45-19) +26pts vs Cincy; USF (33-3) +30pts; UCF (51-23) +28pts vs UConn; USF (37-20) +17pts; UCF (49-24) +25pts USF (43.5 - 15.3) + 113 pts; UCF (52 - 21.8) +121 pts So in 4 games, UCF only outscored those opponents by a difference of 8pts total (2 pts each). They've been better on offense, but worse defensively against those teams. I really think we have better talent then them, the question will be, whether we get out-coached (which seems possible).
  11. Until the playoffs are tied to conference champions, then none of the them truly matter.
  12. They have only 5 eligible as of now with Texas, Texas Tech and K St at 5 wins. And they all (Texas - WVU/Tx Tech, Texas Tech - TCU /Texas, and K St - Okie St/Iowa St) end the year with a difficult path. Very possible that the Texas/Texas Tech winner is the only add of eligible teams to bring them to 6. And if they place Oklahoma into the playoffs, then they only have 5 available for 7 agreements. You also have a similar case with the Big Ten. They currently have 7 eligible teams with Minn at 5-5 (and they close @NW and Wisc - two possible losses). If Minn doesn't get another win, and if Wisconsin or Ohio St make the playoff, they will have 6 eligible teams for 8 bowl agreements. Anyway, hopefully this is all for other teams to care about and we handle business in Orlando and against Memphis.
  13. I forget, can we shun are AAC bowl tie-ins in favor of filling other conference tie-ins where they don't have enough teams? The Big 12 looks like a real possibility, if Oklahoma gets into the playoff, and TCU gets the NY6 bowl, they are looking at possibly 4-5 more teams bowl eligible with 6 bowl tie-ins. All 6 bowl matchups are slated against P5 conferences.
  14. Thats not a bad list. We've beat 8 of the 14 ACC teams atleast once (Clemson, Miami, FSU, Pitt, Syracuse, UNC, NC St, & Louisville). BC, UVA, Duke or Wake would be good to mark off our list (we'll get Ga Tech here shortly on our regular schedule).
  15. They still have Michigan and likely Ohio St left. They'll drop one of those, so won't matter.
