I think I'm gonna try to go to UC's final game since it's the Friday after Thanksgiving and I'll be in Cincy at the parent's house. Not sure if I've been to Nippert since high school when Moeller played there in playoffs. Excited to go back

At least LSU and Georgia had the sack to schedule FBS teams

Disagreement is not the same as seeing the world through red and black glasses! Be reasonable!

I'm struggling to grasp the mindset of someone who would thinks it is best for a senior transfer to play on a bad team so long as they get to play in a P5 conference and in large stadiums!! This does not make a lick of sense!

The priorities, in order, should be: starting, performing well, and winning. To me, it is not clear that he would have a better chance at starting, performing well, and winning at Arkansas or North Carolina. Those programs are at the bottom of their conferences! His prospect status is very likely to suffer as his season circled around the drain!

Pretty easy to see which programs get the preferential treatment when it comes to TV.
It is true that the SEC and ACC have better TV contracts, but how many neutral observers do you think are watching Arkansas or North Carolina?!

I think you missed the point I was trying make: the most valuable exposure comes from being talked about by the national sports media! I find it difficult to believe that a UC team contending for the AAC, led by a much-publicized former Clemson QB, would be discussed less than cellar-dwelling Arkansas and North Carolina!

It's not "regardless"! Either Trubisky made himself or the program did, and the evidence seems to show it was the former!

Bearcats slide into the CFP Rankings at #24. UCF is going too be looking to make a statement against a ranked conference foe. Cats just can't get knocked out early - think a 4 Qtr grind it out game and plays to their advantage.

UCF has scored 30+ every game and UC hasn’t given up 30+ all year(Ohio scored 30). Should be a great game. Didn’t know gameday was there until I turned it on this morning.

Cole is awful. Abandon the kicking game for good.

Two biggest weaknesses are the defensive backs and offensive line. Hopefully Ridder can get some time in the 2nd half. Special teams sucks too.

2 stops in a row for the D to start the 2nd half. If only the offense could do anything.

Not sure how you give that ball to UCF?

I was wrong. UC not ready for primetime. Kind of like another football team in Cincinnati.

UC was picked to go 4-8 this year. Big time turn around. The QB is young and Fickell needs one more year. I know no one wants to admit it, but UCF is at least a top 6 team. And no 10 -1 or 9-2 should be put in the playoffs before them.

I disagree that UCF is a top 6 team.

Hard to tell with the schedule they’ve played. I’d like to see them in the playoff but it won’t happen. Vegas has them listed as a double digit underdog to every top ten 10 besides Washington State. Tonight is their best win.

UCF drilled Pitt. Pitt will be in the ACC championship.

UCF beat Pitt early in the year when they weren't playing half as well as they are now

Based on what? This win over UC? The Cats aren't a top 25 team - they were put in the Rankings because other mediocre teams from big conferences kept losing. Nice recognition but this win didn't prove anything about UCF that we didn't already know, it showed that UC is still at least a year away.

And they'll likely get stomped by Clemson in that game - that ACC division is awful. Kind of like the B1G West.

UCF made their case IMO with their closest slip-up being Navy. If it comes down to four unbeatens, they deserve a shot over ANY non-conference champ, even Alabama.
