Hey - UCF is mid-pack in NCAA footbal and that's just life right now. Sure - we'd love to be ranked much higher, but being in CUSA hurts in both the ability to recruit better players as well as ranking higher. It's certainly better than where we've been the last few years, hovering near the bottom of the 119.

We've got to start somewhere. As I recall, it took UF nearly 90 years to get a national championship. Let's see, Rutgers has the oldest football program in the US - and how many championships have they won?

Give UCF some time - a strong program is nt build overnight.

Go Knights!

I'd say that UCF's three losses this season - including two blowout losses - have hurt their rankings much more than being in CUSA. Being in a non-BCS conference hasn't really hurt teams like Boise State, TCU, Utah, and Hawaii all that much.

Stop making excuses for yourselves. You've been I-A for over ten years. You're in one of the most talent-rich states in the entire country. UCF needs to stop "waiting" for it to happen, and "make" it happen.

They made it happen last weekend. It was a nice effort and a complete game, which they have not played this year, including against Texas.

Now if they can go out with that confidence on the road this week, a W over Southern Miss is certainly possible. Top to bottom, UCF is a better team. They need to go out with an attitude and prove it!

One last thing, what a bunch of good kids, most are articulate, respectful, quality people and more and more are talented. GOL is laying a solid foundation.

I'd like to see UCF fans be a little more 'into' the game. You see great college fans like Penn St, Michigan, Nebraska, etc...each week filling their stadiums and being loud for their teams. Our games need the announcer to remind fans that a 3rd down play is coming up before they begin to cheer. And, while the crowd IS very loud, the point is to make the opponent's play calling difficult. The play has long since been called before we make any noise. C'mon Knight fans; we can do better than that. Quit socializing and support your team. By the way; personal to Fattie that sits two rows behind me- I will continue to stand and cheer my team on big plays...if you don't like it, eat less so that you can also cheer your team or get seats in the front row. Better yet, eat your Lean Cuisine in front of a tv where no one can block your view.
GO KNIGHTS!

Anyone looks good when playing crap teams. After next week the temas go down to the very bottom of the rankings so think how good UCF will look then. UCF Foundation should have been complete years ago. They need a new plan and a new coach.

Houston ranked 63rd

May I recall Saturday's game against Tulsa? For most of the game the quarterback had to look at the coaches clipboard on the sidleline to change plays at the line. BRIGHTHOUSE NETWORKS STADIUM is becoming one of the premiere stadiums in the country. I believe we have the fans to make noise to downtown Orlando every Saturday!

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL...I can't even type I'm laughing so hard. You can't possibly be serious about the UCF stadium becoming one of the premiere stadiums in the country!!! Have you ever actually been to a real college football game at a real stadium? What about it makes it so premiere? Again, UCF fans sounding like idiots who know nothing about college football. I don't mind if you say you like the stadium or it's a nice stadium or it's better than when you played in the Citrus Bowl, but to refer to it as a premiere stadium makes me believe you are really a moron or only 12 years old.

UCF fans are so entertaining. They will be so pumped up when they beat Marshall ranked number 118 out of 120 at home. we will be hearing "watch out you loser USF people with thugs that run the campus and terorists and a rented stadium and we are going to pound you like we did Marshall grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr"

Go Knights
