Ucf takes on Marshall at 2pm today

Can't saying anything about this signing class surprises me. Wish we could have kept that OL.

Only thing that kinda surprises me is Micah Reed who committed to us over a year ago, who had Texas offering and never wavered. Pretty quiet kid who didn't seem to want to go through the recruiting game, picking his school early, and shut it down asking his coach to not let teams contact him.

The class filled many needs, even if it was uninspiring as a whole.

The biggest catch is probably is the QB from Tampa. The kid has all of the tools...

Congrats to UCF for the win yesterday against East Carolina.

Sykes had his second triple-double of the year, and the Knights moved to 17-6.

Basketball team is holding up so far.

Sykes only college player this season to have 2 triple-doubles, which is pretty awesome. He'll make it to the NBA without much problem at this rate.

He should get plenty of exposure next year in the Big East.

I'll throw the UCF-specific Harlem Shake videos I've found in here to liven this thread up. Some are actually quite good.






















I hear there's a huge one being put together involving hundreds of students.

Love the videos.. I keep hearing on facebook about one happening inside the union.

In other news......

Baseball season kicks off today for the Knights! Hopefully our guys can have a repeat of last year (except for losing the championship).

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????
