They won the last seven games playing teams ranked over 100. This was a 7-5 team ranked 65th in defense and 3rd worse in offense with a mid 40's ranking. Stay in the Conference USA Bubble and everything will be fine! Both teams stunk. Here come the excuses, it was cold, we did not show up etc.etc. etc.

Did Kevin play today?

Build for next year, find a better conference and shut up about USF.

Peace out 64-12

Thanks for the great season, but you gave it all back, on a national level, with 4 turnovers and 2 missed FG's to what? the 7th best team in the SEC? Best of luck Kevin Smith. Here's to a great 2008.

Never mind the above comments, these guys forgot their meds today. The fact that UCF made it to a bowl game is impressive. I look forward to seeing them win one next year.

The headline should read "Kyle Israel throws Liberty Bowl game away". Forget the missed field goals, the 3 interceptions are what killed UCF.

Totally agree. What a horrible specimen for a quarterback. I'm often amazed UCF made it to a bowl game after watching his performance. To compound things, UCF relied too much on Kevin Smith. Mississippi State clearly recognized that and took advantage

Give UCF a break....... Just because they lost a bowl game doesn't mean they suck. They had a good year and I am sure next year they will be better.
Goodluck FSU and UF.
Congrats FAU.
Next year will be better UCF.

Come on all you UCF fans who promised to be on these boards win or lose. Kevin Smith averages 3.4 yards per carry...oh, that's what happens when you play non-CUSA teams. What was that - greatest running back in Florida history??? Oh, and may I add... 1). UCF has never beaten a ranked team 2). UCF has never been ranked 3). UCF has never won a bowl game and 4). UCF is NOW 2-39 against BCS teams!!! Yeah baby, here comes that National Championship all right. Where's all the chest thumpin' morons now???? Speak up guys...let's hear about that CUSA championship!!! Gooooooo Knights baby!!!!

A real team from a real conference. They are given 3 turn overs and can only manage a last minute TD to break a 3-3 tie. Oh yeah, that was one major power house breaking out in MS. Give me a break...

i hear what you're saying. when i hear ucf laborers...i mean ucf grads talking about how great their school is and what a great football team they have i'm like, "there's laundry and toilets that need cleaning, get back to work!" it's like snap out of it! back to reality, you know?

When USF's fan base is all younger than 25 I guess these are the comments we should come to expect. Bad game for both teams. Sun Belt officials should stay in the Sun Belt. UCF still had a good season so all is well.

Memo to all UCF Fans: that is how it feels to play a very average SEC team. Now if you were in the conference your next games could be as follows:

Auburn
At Tennessee
LSU
At South Carolina
Vanderbilt
At Georgia

Get the picture? How many of those games would UCF win??

Playing in Conference USA and having Kevin Smith run wild is fun to watch but it is not big time football. Most of the CUSA defenses are awful. He is no where close to as good as McFadden.

It was an ugly game, and we lost. We didn't get beat. They were 2 for 13 on 3rd down conversions. We coughed it up 4 times and handed them 10 points. Just like we coughed it up in the red zone against Texas twice, and like we coughed it up to USF for 19 points to open the game, and like we coughed it up to ECU 5 times in the 2nd quarter. Every loss we had this year was off of turnovers.

Oh well. There's always next year. Congrats Knights for C-USA Champs!!
