whoever it may be, with the way that the big east is this year, will any of our teams make it to the big game if they run the table?

I think we could be 12-0 and then take on BYU in the sugar or orange bowl

Realistically, only if it is us, we go undefeated, and get a lot of help like last year when #2s were falling like rocks.

If undefeated: yes.

I think it depends on how USF performs the rest of the way - any more underachievements like FIU, being 12-0 may not be enough.  Also, although I believe if you guys are undefeated, you should probably get the nod (depending of course on who else is undefeated, i.e., if Georgia & USC run the table, no one is getting ahead of them), I don't think you guys will get the national respect, and a one loss team would probably get the title game ahead of you.  I'm not saying you guys wouldnt deserve it, I am saying you'll probably get screwed in that situation, since you're the new kids on the block.

also - even if they're undefeated, I dont think UConn would get serious consideration or would even be a top 3 team.  I think USF is the only BE team at this point that would get serious consideration if they are undefeated.

Agreed... it would take us being undefeated with almost perfection in our play, in addition to the fall of some big teams.

At this point... doesn't seem very realistic.  We can hope for it, but we need to take it a game at a time and win the Big East and let the cards fall as they may.

USF and UConn are the only candidates right now, and neither school is in a position to be thinking in national championship terms.

A Big East title and an Orange or Sugar Bowl trip would be a huge accomplishment for either school right now.

And could I just point out that it took the mighty Gators 58 years to win their first unrevoked conference title, and 32 years (starting from SEC membership) to make their first Sugar Bowl trip?

    "There is no inherent fear among this group of players. The fear of failing drove the program from day one - the fear of failing the coaches, the fan base, the university, each teammate, themselves. Now, as we head into the biggest game in our history at home on a national stage against the highest ranked team to step on OUR field, the players are taking an introspective look at themselves. Unfortunately, I don't know if they get it. They lack the fear."

    Terry Lucas, 09/26/22

    “This is not a broken football program by any means. It just needs to be united, to get everybody on the same page, share that same vision, and really to have that standard - best is the standard.”
