UCF needs to fire O'Leary!! The Knights need to go out and hire a coach like Tommy Bowden or Phil Fulmer, a big name coach that can go out and recruit top notch blue chip recruits.

2 problems: GOL $5M exit fee which UCF can't afford, and no matter what new coach UCF could hire, we are still not in a BCS conference and most blue chip football players want to play in a BCS conference

This guy is a drunken loser and ucif needs to show some balls and fire him. Fire him for cause and make the drunk sue you for his $5M. He is a liar and a cheat and everyone knows it. There is not a jury in Orlando that would give this drunk a dime.

Your program is third rate and if you let him to continue to laugh his way all the way to the bank, you might as well go back to D-II. No one will want to play for your school.

O'Leary needs to put up or shut up. After more than 20 years of support and season tickets, not sure if I will continue my support. The excuse of youth is just that, an excuse. Other teams deal with the same issue and are successful. Is O'Leary such a poor coach surrounded by poor assistants that he can not produce, inspire and get these young players to perform? It is not like it is the first time they have put on pads. We have heard the same comments every year since he has arrived at UCF. We have had the same poor OC with the same poor performance for a few years now. The OC and headcoach script the plays for the game together before so Salem is just a reflection of O'Leary style and desire. Why UCF gave him the bullet proof contract is just as dumb as giving Kruz a new contract to only fire him in the middle of the season. O'Leary needs to step down. UCF cannot afford to buy him out unless some of those who are screaming for his head can write the check.

For all those that will not let the UCF-USF thing go, this is also getting to be tiresome. Why would either team want to keep this up is absurd. The college world of football does not revolve around either team. Get over it and only deal with what your own team is doing and not what the neighbor is doing.

That's a great idea until you pull your head out of the sand, and realize these guys aren't that desperate for a job. There will be plenty of real college football jobs they won't have to settle for what amounts to no more than a D-IAA or D-II school and conference like UCF and CUSA.

Thank you my overseas friends. I too am a long time (Don Jonas Era) fan and I'm sick of what I see week in and week out. O'Leary needs to realize that this is the staff he hired, these are the players that his staff recruited and so the responsibility lies with him.
Tim Salem has got to go. Hire Mike K. is necessary. He'll open up the offense and make things happen. Reality of this problem is that he is making $1.5 million per year with a huge penalty clause of terminated. We are stuck with him.
As for UCF -USF things. Hey, they beat us on the field four years in a row. Nothing to say here except I wish the rivalry would have been extended. Definitely a great game and atmosphere regardless of in Orlando or Tampa

UCF is ranked 104 out of 120. We're almost the worst college football team in the USA. I didn't even know they ranked teams other than the top 25 until I started to follow UCF.
