The new AD is gone already?
quick twitter search and people are just asking him to take the Kansas job and there's 'smoke' from non-blue-checkmarks.
At this point we are basically a very expensive consulting firm getting all these buyouts.
I get that it could be his dream job since he is a Kansas native but KU is gonna be a tough job.
He has made some good moves at UCF and can have success. Leaving UCF and going to a dumpster fire because he is a KU fan would be a Frost level mistake.
Lets just operate like a Dutch soccer club and develop talent that we sell to fund our shit.
Lol wow. As long as Gus stays I'm good, that was a good hire imo. Not sure who would be next on the list tho
Maybe the Auburn guy, idk.
wE lEbBy nOw
On the bright side, I think his buyout is like 2.5 million.
That's honestly the dream. So much buyout money rolling in. Especially useful this year
Yea this would put us at like 8 or 9 million in buyouts this year. That’s more than we get from our shitty tv contract.
Use the money and buy Eric Wood from LA Tech
Brian White from FAU makes more sense to me for the KU job. He can be like his brother and leave for a train wreck P5.
We need to get our UCF alum guys coaching and ADing around the country
has the alum-going-home coach or AD had recent success? I know Spurrier but that was a long time ago now. Trying to think of a recent success.
Hiring alums is stupid unless they are genuinely the best option.
Is it a tough job though? There is no expectation for football and you can not possibly fuck up a coaching hire worse then they have the last 15 years. You’ll never have to hire a basketball coach.
We got a conference title out of it before Blankenship ran out of Graham players. You guys probably remember
I haven't followed it but aren't they in big trouble for paying players through Adidas or something?
SEC schools don’t get in trouble for football and Blue bloods don’t get in trouble for bball
Frost is getting destroyed for this on Twitter.
Can't imagine it is only his doing, but still, hard not to find a little bit of humor in the mess he finds himself in out there. We all saw it coming
It's because he said they'd play anyone anytime anywhere back when the B1G was refusing to play at all during the pandemic.
That said, why are they cancelling? Just to avoid the bashing?
Yep, I get that. It can't be just to avoid the beating, they have played Top 5 schools each year out there, that's why I'm saying it can't be just his call, bad optics though.
That said, I don't know why else they would be trying to drop a game 6 months ahead of time
Frost hated scheduling any tough games while he was here. He wants easy wins always it looks like. They need him to qualify for a bowl badly this year. That seat could get really hot.
And apparently we just got some transfer RB from Northwestern? Had a good freshman year but lost a bunch of carries after that. Weird to grab two transfer RB when that was the one position I liked our depth.
Yeah don't think we need to grab any new RBs in the portal. One position with a ton of talent and depth.
Recruiting already so much better under the new staff.
First noticeable change for practice; no music
Imagine looking that cool in HS.
He doesn't even need to be any good to be the quarterback of any High School he wants.
Getting some real Andre 3000 vibes on this one. Hell yea.
Holy shit if that’s official.
I always find it funny during this time of year that even with all the technology that could be implemented for timing a runner we still just go with the “fat guy with a stop watch” method
I like it better the fact we do all of this when you can also watch game tape to see how fast a guy runs in an actual football game with football pads and making football moves. This is all so pointless.
Im connived the only person who actually uses this info for anything useful is the guy who does Madden ratings
And sports talk radio for something to fill time during a pretty slow time of the year for sports
He's gonna get drafted and then people will realize he can't catch.
If Harris gets drafted and Marlon Williams doesn't life doesn't make sense.
Brugler Draft Guide out on The Athletic. Its like 250 pages. Here is where he rates UCF guys
Otis - #31 RB, undrafted
McCrae - #33 RB, undrafted
Tre Nixon - #45 WR, 7th-udfa
Marlon Williams - #52 WR, UDFA
Jacob Harris - #7 TE, 5th round
Aaron Robinson - #11 CB, 2nd-3rd round #61 Overall
Tay Gowan - #43 CB, UDFA
Richie Grant - #1 S, 2nd round #40 Overall
Wow Richie, that’s awesome.
Damn, feel like I have seen Gowan as high as a 2nd or 3rd.
Edit: PFF has him as the 9th best CB, 2 spots behind Arob. They have Grant as the 4th ranked S.
This is more of his grade than a projection. But yeah Gowan has basically played 1 real year of football in the last few so he is going to go very high. He is the poster child for paying players so they don't have to leave early.
Gowan not playing last season was allegedly because of his daughter and that he supposedly got some of his family members sick while he was playing. Whether he's being honest or has cooked up the story to sound better in interviews, I don't know.
Either way, he's the biggest wild card here. He has the tools of a good CB and could be a mid round guy or just not even drafted because of how risky a pick it is. If I were an NFL team, I would definitely go with someone like him in the 5-7th round. It's rare you find guys worth a crap that late anyway, so why not take a flier on someone.
Marlon really screwed himself with his Pro Day performance. He was slow, not that explosive, and not very impressive.
Lol guys get it? It’s because it was a pandemic thing people did? Get it?
State of Orlando huh
Yeah thats in poor taste.
