Hey Skinhead - Nice story line. It's quite easy to see who and what you are rooting for. You are a little leaguer at best. Try covering a team where you are wanted? Take your ball and go home.......

WOW! You really dislike UCF. Some support of the home team. I've never seen anything like your paper. You guys at the Sentinel are HORRIBLE!

I was watching the kick-off game between the USC Gamecocks and NC State and looked at all the fans in the stands, then I remembered the "buy one, get one free" email I received for UCF's game. Sigh, well, at least I'll make it for the ECU game later this year. I hope at least the students support the home team. Heck, in Charleston, they fill the Riverdogs local baseball team's stands, but I guess it is easier to be a Gator or Nole fan in Orlando...well, maybe not the latter lately :). And I'm admitting it, I'm getting USF envy!

Mike- As "the only media outlet in Orlando that covers the Knights," you continue to provide coverage that proves UCF is better w/ no coverage from your rag than this shclock you print.

An Embarassment? I don't care if they have to give away the tickets, people will come. The embarassment is the vendetta against the home university you seem to have.

Not in the same league as Michigan? No, we're not, but I suppose neither are you vaunted Florida Gators based on how they were owned in the Capital One Bowl.

Bianci didn't say anything that wasn't the truth. If you want to be taken seriously, you have to have more support than UCF fans have shown. UCF is still just a "pretender" in college football.

Mike-
Plain and simple, your an ass...Just stop covering UCF altogether. We don't need your attempted rhetoric, or lame humor...Why not move to Gainsville where you can be closer to your idol, Mr Tebow?

What is real ridiculous is that Bihonky would even draw a comparison between the APP/MICH game and Saturday's match-up. Last years upset was just that, a fluke upset. Look at how the two teams finished the year. Based on what this article said App. State should have won the D 1AA championship. They did not.

Bianchi:

If SC State beats UCF, it would be as big of a surprise as one of your columns getting published in a real newspaper(outside this fish wrap.)

Mike,

What is your point? Did someone say UCF was not taking SC State seriously?

Couple of questions?

1) 41-35 is a butt kicking?

2) UCF is a BCS caliber team and can't sell out its season opener?

Another horrible article from OS. Not packing the house? Have you heard of UM...they are perhaps the greatest college football team in history and they get about 40,000 a game. Where's the article whining about them? If you hate this team so much just say it. Stop pulling an MSNBC and hiding your true feelings about someone/something.

We are NOT yet a BCS caliber team, and yes I am embarrassed that we have not sold out our season opener. But I'll be there at 1:00 tomorrow for 5 hours of serious tailgating time.
GO KNIGHTS!
