Great job UCF. It's only a matter of time. We're the 6th largest university in the country, we have some of the best facilities in the state, if not the entire country and we have a president who fully supports our athletics. USF vs UCF is like tortoise and the hare. Only the hare looks like a drunken troll.

I like that analogy. USF took thugs and let the get away with cheating academically to have a good football team "now". That's not sustainable. UCF did just the opposite, flushed out MANY players who were not up to it academically, endured the pain of a 17 game losing streak because of it, but is going to come out better in the long run. We're already seeing the payoff in recruiting, and baring any unexpected losses on the offense (like we saw last year), this will be a great football season.

If I was the son of MJ,there's no way I would play basketball. That is an impossible shadow to live under. Imagine your father is a world famous icon! I would play football or some other sport. No matter how good Marcus becomes,he'll always be compared to MJ! Marcus is a brave guy!

Whne did USF finish in the top 25, oh that's right for 5 minutes. Try being ranked in the top 25 when you are 0-3 as UCF did when Culpepper was around and in their first year as a D-I program, now that's impressive
UCF has never been in the top 25.

So what's your excuse for last year's failure?

In 1997, after tough losses to Mississippi (24-23), South Carolina (33-31) and eventual National Champions Nebraska (38-24), UCF garnered mass attention and a ranking in the AP poll at #25.

You can't be serious! If you are resting on some quasi-accomplishment that happened 12 years ago, you must not have a) much of a life, or b) that much faith in UCF football.
1997? Really? Come on, bro.
Adn the sad thing is - you actually remembered the scores. I love football, and I am a fan of my team, but, man, you are the definition of a fanatic!
Back away from the computer, shower, get dressed, and go enjoy the day.
Man, I played basketball in college and I don't even remember the scores but to one or two games. Please do not have this much stake in a football team.

You stated UCF was never ranked just gave you facts that they were, what's the matter, you don't like facts.

Tust me - this guy is the biggest loser on these forums. He will never admit our team sucks and defends that fat, drunk, worthless liar of a coach George O'Leary to the death. You'd think they were involved in a sexual relationship or something.
