    Some universities feel like UCF deserves a home and home while others like Florida do not.

    What say you....

    Should UCF schedule Florida no matter what or hold out for a home and home

    UCF backed out the last time we had them scheduled.

    I am starting to realize that UCF would rather play a weak schedule and whine about it than playing someone good.

    UCF better start scheduling tougher ooc games bc Sankey just said UCF will NEVER get into the playoffs with that weak-ass sheet.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey recommended UCF look “inward” to address strength of schedule issues that have held back the Knights in the College Football Playoff rankings.

    Central Florida was ranked eighth in the final playoff rankings by the selection committee on Sunday after finishing a second consecutive regular season undefeated. The top four teams make the playoff . The Knights, who have won 25 straight games and consecutive American Athletic Conference championships, were never given any serious consideration for the playoff. They will instead play LSU in the Fiesta Bowl a year after they declared themselves national champions following a Peach Bowl win over Auburn.

    For the past two seasons, the committee has cited the Knights’ schedule, which lags behind Power Five conference schools in degree of difficulty, as the reason they have been left out of the playoff conversation...

    you guys don't get fatigue with this? I'm a UCF fan and all the political bs is getting old. UCF has facility bills to pay, they can't survive playing only 5 home games a year. That's the type of agreement that teams playing off campus do. These College Football writers are just bored and are riding the UCF hate for clicks

    Pretty sure Miami would do it. UCF needs more than Miami.

    Small schools schedule away games to pay their bills

    Doesn't make sense.

    It doesn’t make sense to you because UCF ISN’T a small school

    I’m sure taking a pay check game vs a big boy would make up for it. But then they couldn’t pull the victim card 24/7

    There is your biggest problem.
    You can't spin your way out of it.

    Big schools don't have problems paying their bills

    No school is going to pay more than 1.5M for a game. You also have to consider loss of future revenue from STH who give up their tickets because the marquee games aren’t being played at UCF anymore.

    Deserve? Yes. But the issue is they have no leverage. Everyone knows they need the game badly. So a P5 school should be able to schedule a 2 for 1.

    What part of a 68k student body makes you think the school is small?

    Your definition of “big” is wrong. What you are saying is “OLD” schools with HUGE endowments don’t have problems paying their bills.

    Should?

    Wrong. UCF is not a caller dweller. They are a top 10 program and are acting accordingly. They won’t no 2-1’s period. 1-1-1 at worst or nothing.

    Face it.

    UCF is afraid of Florida.

    They should have taken the deal.
    Instead they would rather go 12-0 and act like the people are out to get them.

    You can't play the victim anymore

    You are smoking crack if you honestly believe that. UCF won’t get on their knees and suck off UF for that shit offer. We aren’t USF.

    UF hasn’t been relevant since Tebow left. Their jorts wearing fan base and their AD are delusional.

    And UF fell all the way to the cellar. You don’t have to tell me about pride. I sucked up the 2015 like s man and will beat my chest because we came out the other side and have changed our coaching staffs 3 times and have had 12 win seasons with the last three and will go to a NY6 with each.

    2013 GOL 13-1
    2017 CSF 13-0
    2018 CJH 12-0 and pending.

    UCF is on the rise and UF isn’t. Those are FACTS.

    Then play them and show the world.

    You earn your place in life.
    Go 3-0 against Florida and you earn respect, recruits and fans.

    South Carolina granted UCF a Home and home and played it. SC is 5-0 versus UCF, last winning in 2015. So much for factual accuracy.

    Yep and as a former USC student I was happy to see this. I personally consider USC to be a more prestigious school that UF which is why I laugh at that trash school.

    UF has to nut up and do the 1-1-1 otherwise he looks like a biatch. He called out DW and was quickly reminded we are a T10 program UF isn’t.



    People have a hard time seeing the big picture.

    This was 30-40 years ago. Conferences didn’t dominate and independent schools were common. Scheduling, bowl access, media was completely different.

    FSU also was able to build athletic facilities with state dollars. Which is something UCF has not been able to do.

    I believe Danny White said it was somewhere close to 2 million. Also losing a home game really hurts the season ticket sales and building a fan base. Just does not make sense,

    You forgot some years.

    2015 0-12
    2004 0-11

    Two or three years from now UCF might be winless again. That is their trend. Good for a few years then WINLESS!

    UCF should tell Florida we will play you anywhere....

    That gives them a chance to knock them off.

    UCF is not equal to Florida. Only way they can be is beating them on the field

    Playing away games for a big payday is how smaller programs pay their bills and more importantly, get the chance to go toe to toe with a big boy. This is how it's always been. Beat enough big boys and then you get to schedule home aways. Louisville got an invite to a P, increase the value of UCF and it can happen for UCF too.

    I think that UCF could set up some sort of season opening game at a semi-neutral site at the very least. For example: vs UGA but played in Atlanta, one and done. Else, they can give Miami, Florida, or FSU a 2-for-1 deal.

    They're going to have to do something like the above, and the sooner they bite the bullet the better. With a win over some highly regarded P5 OOC opponent they would improve their credibility. It doesn't help that they canceled a game versus Florida a few years ago.
