    That's excellent. Jaylon Robinson just transferred from OU to UCF. Dude is gonna be a star for them. Glad he'll get to play us twice.

    Should be fun

    UCF is maximizing for revenue not exposure. Danny White's been incredibly clear on that. It's not "anyone, anywhere", it's "anyone so long as its equal footing"

    Right now that formula looks like two P5's, a G5 and a FCS team every year. FIU series took two years of the g5 spot.

    Trolls can hate but it's clearly working. No real reason to change anything up at this point.

    I don’t buy the “they’re afraid to play here” stuff. I do buy that there’s a distinct disadvantage for northern teams who’s roster has to be built to play in the elements as well as be fast enough to beat the teams who play on a fast-track.

    Devil's advocate, what attributes are needed to be able to "play in the elements"? Pro teams don't pay attention to the guy's college when they draft. OJ Simpson did fine at Buffalo. Etc

    All of this UCF refusal to take anything but 1 v1 is pretty comical when you consider the fact that in the 80’s and early 90’s programs like fsu and cu(who were much further along as programs than fsu) found a ways to do 2 for 1s and even 2 for 0 with programs like Michigan in order to help build their brands and programs. Also drives me nuts around March madness when all the mid major coaches start bitching about how they can’t get home and homes with high majors so their sos sucks. It’s been like that forever, so just take the 1-0 games and neutral site games you can get and stop worrying about adding a few potential extra losses to your record.

    Shaping up pretty well. Hopefully we can fill that last one with a West Coast school or maybe a big 10 power. I'd love a home and home with Ohio State. Is OSU booked up on future schedules?

    College Football: “Just schedule anyone anywhere like programs did in the 80s and 90s. Its no different now than when they did it 30 years ago”


    Also College Football: “You can’t just claim a national championship like programs did in the 80s and 90s. It’s totally different now than when they did it 30 years ago”

    i don't know of any school that legitimately claims MNC's from the 80s & 90s that weren't from one of the two consensus polls.

    all of the splits (90, 91, 97) were from AP/Coaches polls having different results.

    UF doesn't claim their '84 NYT computer poll or anything of that sort.

    I was making the point that it’s pretty hypocritical to say that college football is different in one instance but scheduling works exactly the same as it always has. Telling us that we need to have the anywhere anytime mentality that FSU or Miami had in the 80s and 90s is just ignorant of that. Programs needed to do that 30 years ago because that was the only way to grow their brands, to get people to talk about them, to get in one of the limited (compared to now) TV spots. Today, there are lots of ways to grow a brand. Practically every game and every team is available on some TV or streaming outlet every weekend. we have many more traditional media outlets talking about college football 24/7. We have the ability to use social media to gain more direct interaction and exposure with the general college football fanbase.

    The financial cost of dropping a home game, which is a good amount of money for a program like us, just so we can go play some name at their place (which still won’t help us in the eyes of any committee regardless of who we play) for the exposure is not worth it for us. For some G5 schools it is, for us it’s not. It’s really just basic math.

    You don’t think that playing Clemson or bama or Georgia or Oklahoma close on the road would help you guys with the committee?

    Not enough for it to actually get us a playoff spot no. It’s been shown that G5 schools have a ceiling and that we should just be happy with our NY6 game as a reward

    That made sense in the 80s/90s. Programs did whatever they had to do to get TV exposure. That's not really a thing anymore.

    What's needed now is closing the revenue gap with p5 programs as much as possible and using our size and facilities to pull as far ahead as we can from the rest of the g5.

    I personally don't. Every major change in the college football post-season has come about from the threat of a lawsuit, not fairness. There's no reason or evidence that suggests that somehow it's any different now.

    I doubt that, if you beat a team like that you will get the credit, you just never play them

    What's funny is we've played those games plenty, and it's never actually helped our rankings all that much.

    The year we beat the hell out of #6 Baylor in the fiesta bowl, we were 15th entering it after beating penn state on the road, a top 10 Louisville on the road and losing to a top ten SC by a single score at home. We were a 1 loss team stuck at 15.

    If you go back further and look at Boise or Utah or TCU, somehow someway they were always just on the outside regardless of schedule or outcome.

    The only way to get ranked high enough in FBS football is to be able to benefit from the giant echo chamber pre-season rankings create. That's simply not going to happen for any one outside of the p5.
