Of course a UCF fan would make a comment like this since UCF has NEVER been ranked or beaten a ranked team. For that matter they have NEVER won a bowl game and they are 2-38 against BCS teams. But their fans have the nerve to talk trash. I guess though if your big goal is to win CUSA than the polls really don't mean anything.

Wow, another obsessed Steers fan comes out of hiding. Let's wait until the end of the season, when UCF has won another CUSA championship and beaten the Steers at Brighthouse...then we can look at the rankings.

Wow, another CUSA championship!!! Call up the BCS committee...UCF should be in the BCS championship after another CUSA championship!!! When are you people going to realize nobody cares about a second-tier league like CUSA. I suppose if that's all you have to look forward to it's exciting, but please don't try to act like it has any meaning in real college football.

To prove my point think about this. If any big time college team like Florida, Ohio State, or USC sent a coach to UCF and offered any UCF player a full ride scholarship and a starting position what do you think their answer would be??? Any honest person knows exactly what the answer would be. Second-tier college football is just that, and if the majority, if not all, of it's players could play at a big school they would in a heart beat. So stop kidding yourself, and trying to act like UCF is big time because they aren't.

I'm not a USF fan, but if that's the best response you have to my post than I know you can't handle the truth and it hurts. Who knows maybe UCF will get lucky and find some stud who can't get into a real program because of his grades. There actually is one good reason for second-tier college football...ESPN shows it during the week leading up to the real games on saturday.

Check to see who has offered all of the UCF starters and the recent new recruits UCF has signed. Yes, that's right...big time BCS teams...and guess what, these student athletes all chose UCF.

You did notice preason in paretnesis didn't you. Try reading the entire post before you make an idiot out of yourself. Your cut and paste is getting boring (yawn). Try being original and talk about the future instead of the past.

Let's see, UCF places about 50% of their football team on either the honor or merit roll, the rest have a GPA well over 2.25. O'Leary recruits nothing but kids who have good grades, and will not even think about jeopardizing grades for a questionable kid. Know your facts, or else you just look ignorant.

You may want to read my post a little closer. I said a full scholarship as a starter. No starter on UCF would turn down a chance to be a starter on a BCS team (and I'm not considering the Big East a legitimate BCS conference so don't even go there). And hence, the reason UCF and CUSA is second-tier...most would not even sniff a starting position at a big time program like Florida, Ohio State, or USC. I know it's hard, but try and follow the bouncing ball here junior.
