I think the major 2 issues regarding the lack in interest in the team:

1) Constant overhyping of non conference games and self destructing: Every non conference game gets severely overhyped by UCF officials ("this could be the biggest win in history") and the team has lost all of them in ulgy fashion. People have become immune to the hype because they always fail to deliver. They say UCF is the sleeping giant, well the giant is in a coma.

2) GOL- ask anyone one who knows UCF football and just about everyone hates the man. The playcalling is antiquated, conservative, predicatble, and boring. It would be a great system for 1950 but its 2012. There are no adjustments and the man is clearly too stubborn. When you got people that dont know anything about football preditcing the plays then you got a problem (run, run, screen pass to the side). The team has had talent for years but the coaching staff cannot adjust to their talent to max performance. This team is not fun to watch play.

adding to this: a friend made a statement on facebook about how UCF shuts down school for football but not when the POTUS comes to speak. Someone says, "yea we're not even any good at football!" Another says that we stink but football brings in a lot of revenue.

I point out that we're 6-2 and one of our losses is to an undefeated OSU on the road. We hardly "stink." Their response? "We USUALLY stink. Forgive my ignorance."

Point blank, too many roller coaster seasons. Even though we've won a few conference championships and we won the Liberty Bowl just two seasons ago, fans have gotten so used to being excited to be let down that they've gotten the perception that our football program "stinks."

I would wager that if we were 9-3 or 10-2 for the last 4 years, but didn't win a single championship or liberty bowl, fan perceptions would be better.

Football games are scheduled a year in advance and bring 30k+ people to campus.

lol I was hoping that wouldn't be the part you focused on. Yea believe me, I set it straight, though I do agree that with such an event happening it would be an ok idea for the school to suspend classes in the morning for people to go see the POTUS speak. At the same time maybe that should be left up to the Professors.

I believe SMU will cover. Even though you would hope we destroy them on our Homecoming.

I can't figure out to either give or take the points.

SMU has been horribly overmatched against decent teams, but has played much better of late.

Great beatdown tonight. SMU gave us little trouble.

36,000 fans isn't bad considering the big time matchups that were on television.

Weird that we NOW have a big football banner that goes up and down the student section after a score. Feel like it came very late.

Keep padding Latavius' stats please.

That wasn't the largest crowd last night, but it was the most engaged by far.

The best tailgate day of the year as well.....no heat, no rain, no wind

UCF is playing very well.....Murray continues to impress, O-Line has stepped up, and Bortles is finding receivers.

Loved the Banner. They for about 20 min had it hanging from the parking garage next to the memory mall. What was the deal with the fake cannon on the score board? Bring back THE REAL CANNON and let ROTC bring back the tradition that we had in the citrus bowl.

Tailgate yesterday was packed and the group I was with had an amazing time. The shame is how many students were lining up for busses to go home at kickoff. Pathetic to say the least.

Yeah, the jumbotron cannon was weak. Need a real one or none at all.

Props to the barefoot kid who almost made that field goal for free room and board. So close.

The banner looked great!

I didn't get the cannon thing.....did it even have sound? If it did I didn't notice any

Yeah the fake cannon had sound. It was a horrible clip art style cannon on the big screen. The fireworks from the theme parks is louder than a real cannon was. I hear those fireworks every night; the neighbors can deal with 6-7 events a year.

UCF vs Juarez....I mean UTEP at 7 pm.

Could be a trap game.....but it better NOT be.

A win is a win.

UCF struggled against UTEP, howling winds didn't help......Murray again produces a huge TD run in the clutch with the game tied in the 4th.

8-2, nice......but that Mizzou game still destroys any credibility of the record with CUSA being such a doormat of a conference.

UCF opened the remodeled Sun Dome against USF, and left with a well-rounded win 74-56.

UCF, by reports, had about 2K attend.....I don't know about the amount of people, but they definitely were vocal.

The team dominated the boards, hit open shots, and just outplayed USF in almost every facet. UCF lost three expected starters before the season (Reed, Jordan, Crittle), but Sykes was amazing 26-11-8 in his first career start at PG.

I gotta say that I don't miss Jordan at all, it appears that his teammates from last year don't either. And as energetic as Rompza was, the fact is that he really did not offer very much production for his time spent on the floor.

Depth will be an issue for UCF, but great start to the year.....
