Hi Guest,

Just a note to point out our TBP-initiated drive to raise funds for the Bulls Football IPF - doing our share, and more.  Please consider donating at least $23 to the effort, and passing on to others as well.  You can read more about the project at the link above.

Go Bulls!

Thank you,

UCF starts go fund to investigate SEC .....

Recommended Posts

It's not the school's doing.  The last time there was threats of an investigation into this stuff it led to the school getting accepted into a P5 (Utah), so actually I can see why some are starting to push that narrative.  It's not unheard of and I don't think UCF cares what other schools think of them.  I'm pretty sure they only care about themselves and whoever will pay them $ like ESPN.

Playoffs really need to be expanded to 8. 5 Conference champions, 1 G5, and 2 at large. 

If they only expand to 8 teams, still no auto bids. Shouldn't be able to get into that still limited playoff just by being the tallest midget.

Utah had I believe a Senator that was pushing for investigations, huge, HUGE, difference

Then the G5 needs to be separated completely and have their own playoff.  Stop the masquerade

UCF would have made the playoffs this year with that scenario ... but I've got no problem separating.

I don't have a problem separating either.  And I guess qualifying an "auto" bid to certain criteria (ex. undefeated G5 team, above some ranking level, etc.) could work as well.  Screw it, just go full playoff and have 16 teams.

It is amusing that the SEC fans have been the most vicious in casting aspersions about UCF and the AAC. I have seen worse comments directed toward UCF than any I can recall a Bull fan making.  Seems like fans of the other big conferences (generally speaking) are ambivalent at worst and some are even supportive of a so called "g5 access".  You would think that if the SEC were so superior, as they say, they would ignore the miscreants from the east.  Keeping the false narrative that even the worst SEC team could win other conferences has to be protected. 

As far as using systems to protect the brand at the expense of others, the SEC is doing what the SEC always has.  Look at why Georgia Tech left the SEC in the 60s and you will see their unscrupulous ways are nothing new.
