Not gonna lie, the UCF one in the union is one of the most bad ass ones of all of them.

Univ. of Georgia swim team takes the championship though.

Because opposing coaches will tell recruits, "you might not even play for GOL. His contract is up before you leave college, do you really want to go to a college based on what a coach tells you when he might not be there?" So GOL gets an extension to squash those concerns, regardless if he plans to stay that long.

Not saying I agree with it, but that's the idea.

And given that we're not even going to be in the Big East anymore, it might be prudent to eliminate any recruitment issues, however minor.

George graduates players an that's a big deal to the administration and President Hitt. He's going to retire when he's done and we're stuck with him.

Rumors abound that USF/UCF to Big XII.

Probably a ploy to get FSU to jump ship, but nice that the rumors are out there, lol

Smh. What a terrible conference name.

I hope they find something better.

Maybe.. Metro Collegiate Conference (MCC)?
Or... Eastern Athletic Conference????

The new uniforms debuted last night. I think they look alright, still a little plain but that's O'leary's style. They're definitely original though, it was made from a brand new template through Nike. With the combinations I'm hoping we get to see the all black uniform for the Black Friday Rivalry game with USF.

GOL said it himself on the radio last week that his extension is entirely non-guaranteed, so that's great. The extension is specifically for recruiting purposes and it makes sense.

No clue what to think of those uniform designs. They can either look sharp or stale depending on the real product. I don't like the numbering and placement of the numbers.

Yes. I think the uniforms are a slight improvement. If they change the helmet, it will be interesting to see what they go with.

I'll take it. Can't complain after the America 12 rumor.

'The American' is how many people will refer to it.

Bortles was very sharp in saturday's spring game.

I didn't go, but I understand that the backup QB's all played decently as well.

Defensive depth is another matter.

Sigh. Our QB situation is miserable.

Luckily, we play at the end of the year, hopefully whoever the guy is will have developed a bit by then.
