  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. Except the ACC is never going to happen. If they ever go to 16, it will be ND and one of UConn or Cincy.

    USF switching to Adidas?

    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

    USF/UCF Common Opp

    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.
  7. 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).
  8. Until the playoffs are tied to conference champions, then none of the them truly matter.

    Most recent bowl projections

    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.

    Most recent bowl projections

    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.

    Most recent bowl projections

    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).
  12. They still have Michigan and likely Ohio St left. They'll drop one of those, so won't matter.
  13. I just wish some of these prognosticators would be consistent with their methodology. If you're going to punish USF for their schedule, then why not punish Wisconsin? Or worse yet, why is WVU with 2 losses and wins over ECU, Kansas, Baylor, Delaware St and Texas Tech (their lone "good" win at 4-3 but unranked) in over us? Not to mention WVU struggled winning by 2 over 0-7 Baylor (who has lost to Liberty and UTSA this year) and to smaller extent 1-6 Kansas (were up by 8 with 5.5 min left in game).

    Perfect Playoff Scenario

    I think putting UGA in will be big enough to upset a lot of people. It will be LSU/BAMA all over again. I mean they will end the season playing Bama in the conference championship. If they lose, no reason for them in the playoff at all.

    Jones at it again

    Sadly, that seems to be all journalism has become.
