Big win for the Knights today. Memphis was ranked #74 and UCF was #98. I'd venture to say that was an upset. Clearly the Knights have turned the corner, and are knocking on the door my friends.

Decent win on the road, but it still shows that when the other team is determined to shut down the run, UCF is not going to score. Find a good QB or forget any consistent winning.

Yet another idiotic post from this simpleton. Allow me to clarify, and correct me if I'm wrong. You think GOL is a great coach, and the team he has dumped on us is something to be proud of?

ucfrocks,

You are exactly whats wrong with the program. You get excited over a win at Memphis, where we should EXPECT to win games like this, and why O'Leary still needs to go. Sure it's great we got the win, but thats 4 in a row over Memphis (we own them, and destroyed them last year). There is no team in C-USA that we shouldn't beat. If we want to play at the next level, we need to get wins over schools like Miami, BC, USF, etc. We should be CHAMPS, EVERY SEASON, NOT EVERY OTHER SEASON..That is what we should expect, and not be happy with a 5-7 season.

Good win though Knights, although I'm still wondering what happens to the offense in the 2nd half!!

ucfrocks is your typical pubescent moron. He made a post to one of the other articles during halftime saying that UCF is "destroying" Memphis, even though we were only up two touchdowns and it was the half. But in his simple mind, we were UNSTOPPABLE and have the GREATEST coach ever!!! Pitiful.

Everyone calm down. UCF won. This season is exactly like 2006, where if there were some breaks then the record is different. There will be another decent recruiting class and 2009 will be much better.

We will not have a decent quaterback as long as GOL is our coach. O'Leary's strategy is to try and get out ahead of the competition and then hand the ball off to a running back every play in the 2nd half. GOL doesn't thing quarterback's win games for you, they lose them. It's not an important position, so he doesn't bother to recruit any talent.

As long as GOL is coach, we will continue to have duds like Calabrese and Greco calling the signals. The solution is, of course, a new coach.

I still think ucfrocks is a troll from another school hoping to stir up $hit with his/her crazy statements

And you want to buy out Coach O'Leary's contract?? Whay coach can we possibly get that comes close to Coach O'Leary's credentials?? Are you forgetting that we are CHAMPS because of Coach O'Leary??

Hey ucfrocksinyourhead...from where I sit, GOL's credentials are not that stellar (if you know what I mean). And there are a lot of young eligible coaches available now that can take us to the next level.

Look, after two seasons on these boards, we all know who you really are and that you post on this board as ucfrocks in a childish attempt to post ridiculously stupid comments and have them be attributed to real UCF fans. If you used a little more imagination in your posts you could possibly be able to fool a 5th grader but alas, you're just a really poor excuse for a troll.

That's just how it's been for us Knight fans. Because of that pathetic, washed-up excuse of a coach, our program doesn't even attract top-notch trolls.

That "washed up" coach just so happened to have won the C-USA Championship last year and was a touchdown away from winning the Liberty Bowl. I speak the truth and you confuse me with someone who is confusing 5th graders. You are no UCF fan sir...Go Knights!!

Wrong on all counts, bonehead!
1) Kevin Smith won the C-USA Championship for us last year, a fact that is now obvious,
2) A single touchdown is something that UCF was unable to produce in the Liberty Bowl,
3) Your posts are nosense and garbage,
4) I am a longstanding UCF fan, it's GOL that makes me ill!

Who signed 24k bonehead??? I can tell how great a fan you are by your nonstop negativity. I'm sorry I try to see the positive in most situations. I guess everyone needs to be more like you and just hate everything...Go UCF!!

yes, coach O'Leary has righted the ship. I can see him being coach of the year again. Wait till next year, Conference USA champs, ranked in the top 10 and a BCS bowl game. The next year we will be in a major conference, which we will dominate, thanks to coach. We will start getting the 5 stars recuits instead of the gayturds
