Freaking bullsh*t that we have to go to UCF.

I guess in the Big East's eyes we're 0-0 though. Still, it's your turn to visit.

Enjoy your "bowl" against us. I won't be going to it ever again.

Dude whats it matter? Come to Brighthouse and enjoy yourself, it's a nice stadium and good experience. Soak up a USF Cows loss and we'll see you at the Pirate Ship next year.

Given the news about the catholic 7 possibly dissolving the conference..... who even knows if we will still have that same schedule if the departing teams get to leave even earlier.

The instability of the BE is ominous to say the least.

Jmo, but UCF is stuck in a move forward position regardless of what happens.

I've been in WV for weeks now, so I am a bit out of touch with things. So if anyone has any greater depth to add please fill me in.

It's official, the catholic basketball schools are out. They will not fight for the name Big East. Whatever that's worth...

Annoyingly enough, it's the catholic schools that were holding everything back. If they bailed earlier, we'd probably have a conference with TCU, WVU, Pitt, Cuse, Lville, Rutgers, Cincy, UConn, USF, UCF. Don't tell me that conference wouldn't compete.

Describing it as a mess might be somewhat generous

Congrats on your degree! Hopefully you have a job lined up and if not, I suggest going to college for a grad degree.

As for the conference mess... It might turn out better for football in the end. A true east and west division setup. If we can knock out the MWC by taking the best teams, we would limit competition to the access bowl.

Lastly, doesn't look like I will be going to the bowl game. First one I've missed (other than Hawaii) in the last 8 years. I was hoping to go to Memphis again while I was on vacation but I can't get the Friday before a Holiday weekend off to make the St. Pete Bowl.

Yep, I will have missed just the Hawaii and this St. Pete Bowl. Zero interest in this crap.

Surprised Hurricanes were only favored by 4 points on our turf tonight. Miami won 72-50.

However, UCF will win 34-28......maybe....

Yeah, but a bowl is a bowl....which is one of the metrics used to gauge the success of a program.

UCF played very well last night. Bortles gained a lot of exposure as did the program during the blowout telecast.

21K there (announced), but so what?

Many high profile programs are going to eat thousands of tickets by participating in a bowl game.

Florida, LSU, Georgia, FSU, along with many others are going to have to pay to play.

I think the fan base's recessionary attitude has finally caught up to the bowls.....overpriced tickets, overpriced hotels, and it's hard for many people to justify the expense of the games.

Plus, the end of the world was near......lol

Bowls have become a scam to only make money for the people who run the bowl. Why do colleges put up with being forced to buy overpriced tickets that otherwise would never sell. Let's be honest, the public doesn't care much for bowls like this.

Plus the bowl organizers get to hide behind the Not for Profit cloak. What a joke.

Bortles has now gone something like 170 passes without an INT. Which is remarkable regardless of who you face. Two more seasons with him, so i'm excited to see him progress. As well as Hall, Perriman, Worton, and Storm. If we can maintain a good O-Line our offense should be really fun to watch the next two years.

Defense needs some work. Sad to see Ishmael go but will be fun to watch him on Sundays. Hopefully the defense can find guys to step up and be that defensive force we've had in the past.


On bowls as a whole, I think fans are getting tired of half the nation going to games and can tell it's just a cash grab. Honestly who cares that we won the beef-o-brady's bowl? It was more important to get a 10th win then to have it be a bowl win IMO.

They got the job done, emphatically. Bravo. Superb performances across the board. ESPN was giving us constant praise (even if they were saying "Central Florida"). A lot of promise for next year. Let's see what happens with the bowl ban stuff now.

what it does help is the younger guys, as they get more coaching during bowl prep. During Saban's first year at Bama, they went to Shreveport. Some fans took exception, but Saban said he would go because he got to continue to coach the young players. The next year the team started off 12-0.
