Actually 2-0 after Memphis and Navy wins with UCF set to go against NC State next. You know you're going to watch the games anyway.

UCF fans doing their part to try to help their B12 cause. I would like to think if UCONN played a Pinstripe Bowl, we'd have even more support than this.

I could dig up the posts, and this will probably jinx him - but I really wanted to fire PP after year 2 and hire Doeren. Of course with that offer it couldn't happen - but that guy can coach.

I love ya Dooley but nobody can make a Big 12 case. They don't want to expand and if they do it won't have anything to do with who brought people to a bowl 90 minutes away.

I think I'm trying to make UCF's case for them for my own sanity. If the B12 expands, I'd rather it be with UCF than Memphis. But I tend to agree with you - the B12 seems to be spinning their wheels until their eventual Big East-esque raid.

Brissett seems to be a good reason for Shirreffs to have transferred, huh? This is my first time watching NC State play this year and really like their QB/RB duo. Hopefully, we can come close to duplicating that soon.

He transferred because they wanted him to play fullback.

Downhill runner, they must be running on another field compared to others. Just makes me laugh. I get it. But still.

Gave you the Rutgers heads up yesterday.

I think VPI beats Cinci today.

I'll go with Cincy.

Yeah, I agree, although it's easier for me to agree up 7-0. But I felt that Cincy was the better team going into this, so long as Kiel could go. If Munchie was the QB, I wasn't as confident...

How far how we fallen?

We are playing in a far weaker league than in 2004-2012 and can't manage more than 3 wins.

Amazing how much better some of these 6-7 win teams are than us.

The last two bowl seasons if you just bet against line movement you'd clean up.

Sorry, but the American is not a far weaker conference than the Big East. UCF, East Carolina, Houston, Memphis and Navy can hold their own any day against Syracuse, Pitt, Rutgers and Louisville. If anything the conference is better. Too many have fallen for ESPN's propaganda. Unfortunately the unbalanced conference payouts on the TV contracts are dictating who's good and who's not. In the end if the networks succeed it may be true but for now the jury is still out.
