should make things more exciting than our football season has been...

anyone see the articles about O'leary continuing to get paid $200K in a consulting role for maybe 1 hour's worth of work?

linkage

Report: UCF will pay former coach George O'Leary $200k till March 2020

an amendment was added to O'Leary's contract in April 2014 that allowed O'Leary to remain on the payroll until March 15, 2020. O'Leary's liaison role requires him to work no more than 12 hours with the athletic department in any one year.

O'Leary could have earned up to $235,000 a year until 2020 had he stayed on as interim athletic director.


Hmmm... $235K/year for a stressful full-time job, or $200K/year for putting in 12 hours as a suggestion-maker.

Anything wrong with this in the context of state/government-sponsored public education?

The reason O'leary is still getting paid is because after the 2013 fiesta bowl win he wanted to retire. However, the school wanted him to stay a couple more years to help in transitioning to another coach. He agreed to stay but the school didn't have enough money to pay him. So, he deferred his payments out to 2020. Which was smart for him to do as now he is in a lower tax bracket. It helped UCF keep him for 2014, and of course 2015 is the disaster.

Yeah for Tacko fall! First game saturday.

fyi, Tacko Fall started for UCF last night against Davidson. UCF came close but lost. Davidson returns 7 of their 8 top scorers from last year's NCAA tournament team.

Fyi, UCF isn't a world beater yet in basketball and we beat an undersized Stetson last night (The hatters played great though), just wanted to say
Tacko Fall had his best game of his early career. 23 points, 12 rebounds, 3 blocks. It turns out he is really good. Runs the floor just as fast as the guards, and hustles, dives to the ground for loose balls and looks to be improving with each game.

UCF basketball season is done with a stupid lose in the conference tourney to that worst team in conf, Tulane.

UCF fired Basketball coach Donnie Jones immediately after.

Yeah...Hopefully this new AD Danny White has great basketball coach connections. He should. His brother is head coach with the Gators and his Dad is AD at Duke.

Thus, Tacko Fall will be under new coaching regime next year.

Tacko played great the final four games. He has really improved throughout the year.

2017 update. March Madness. UCF makes the post season for first time in 5 years. Finished 21-11 Seeded 4th place in conference. Made it to the conference semi-final game and lost to eventual winner SMU.

Tacko Fall won defensive conference player of the year. He really changes the game up on defense. His offense skills are so-so. I think he owns the best shooting percentage in NCAA. All he does is dunk. Imagine that... But, defense he really blocks a lot of shots and alters the shooters shot. So, he has been effective in that!

#4 seed in NIT tourny. Game Wednesday @UCF 7pm vs Colorado.

Tix only 15 bucks. ESPN3 if can't make it. Hope we win. Go Knights!

I went to the game last night. UCF beat Colorado in first round of NIT. Colorado missed a three point attempt with 3 seconds to go to put the game in OT. Close and hard fought game. UCF winds 79-74. Next game Monday night @Illinois State.

Johnny Dawkins has proven to be a great hire at coach! Unprecedented UCF basketball success. The team looks to be even better next year with returnees and transfers sitting out this year, including Johnny Dawkins son.

UCF arena last night was the first time ever sold out for a basketball game 10,000+.
