Good read:


Yes it was.. Frost seems like a good guy and he was in a difficult position but in the end, he could not say no to coming home to rescue his beloved Cornhuskers.

I wish him well .... however the task before him will be much harder than the one he just accomplished.

Peach Bowl CEO: "I just got a call late night, UCF sold out their total allotment of 12,500 in their first day of sales. That's got to be a record in the CFP era. I don't know that anybody sold out in first day of sales."

Supposedly a new UCF head coach will be announced soon as well!

Go Knights!

Great article. I hope he achieves the same success with the Nebraska players. I think every Knight will always have 2017 as their highest moment. I believe that the fire Frost started does not go out when he leaves. There is no going back. This started something, a new relevance for both UCF and USF, and to a lesser extent, even FAU.

Who is the UCF AD? All the right moves. If you wait or screw up you get hosed on selecting a new coach. I think they just knocked the ball off the cover.
Congrats.

How about Scott Frost crowd surfing at the 11 minute mark in the video above then later when he is telling the team he is leaving?

Rhetorical: IF and its a very big IF, UCF beats Auburn in the bowl game. (I think we will, black and gold glasses on tight)...we return 90 percent of our team. We lose a few seniors, some important on defense. However, we have a very talented and young team coming back in 2018. Is it at all possible to win the National Championship if we go undefeated? My auburn coworker just told me UCF would be ranked #20 preseason, win or lose the bowl game. I think if we go undefeated we would deserve to be considered a top 4 team. But, of course, we won't (in my opinion) due to perceived biased opinions and driven by $$$ of the playoff committee. Cinderella teams are allowed in college basketball but not in football.

Regardless gonna be interesting and what a great time to be a UCF fan! College football in our backyards. This year's games were really fun. Anyone on the fence about buying season tix I would say go for it. 99 bucks per season tix is a steal for college football. Single game tix were very tough to get for the past two.

2018 schedule
Home:
South Carolina State
FAU
Pitt
Cincinnati
Temple
Navy
SMU

Away:
North Carolina

two games that will sell out are Navy and Pitt. The other teams don't draw fans.

Pitt beat Miami Canes this year. The two out of conference games that are important to win are Pitt and North Carolina. Two ACC teams.

USF will drop off as Qb Quinton Flowers graduates.

Memphis should again be good as Coach Norvell signed extension yesterday.

SMU was going to be good but their coach just moved to Arkansas. SMU qb is NFL caliber.

FAU, Lane Kiffen Owls come to UCF! FAU went undefeated in conference and won CUSA. Surely that will be ESPN prime game as they love themselves some Lane Kiffen.

Uconn should suck as usual along with ECU.

South Carolina State, div double AA.

Cinci/Temple, eh...usually tough teams but have been down.

Navy at UCF. Navy always good. They dropped off towards the end of the year though. But, NAVY coming to UCF! Woot!

Scott Frost on Jim Rome show today:

Frost said he's still working through logistics, but is hoping to be able to coach No. 10 UCF in the Peach Bowl against No. 7 Auburn on Jan. 1.

"The players at UCF have scratched and clawed and worked to get the opportunity that they've got," he said. "If I can make it work, I owe it to those guys to do everything I can to give them the best chance to win that football game and we're trying to work that out now. It'd be great to see them one more time."

Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl: Auburn (-9.5) vs. UCF

When: Jan. 1, 12:30 p.m. (ESPN) 
Why to watch: The Knights can cap off a perfect season before Scott Frost heads to Nebraska, and the Tigers have a chance to build for next year around Jarrett Stidham. There will be points.
SN pick: Auburn wins 42-28 and covers the spread

College Football Playoff is just another fake way to determine national 'champion'

If UCF beats Auburn in the Peach Bowl on New Year's Day, the Knights will expose one of the fatal flaws in college football's latest postseason system - the College Football Playoff.

Both Coasters Taphouse in Cocoa Beach and Coasters Pub in Melbourne are official Watch Party venues of the UCF Alumni Association, if anybody would like to come out and cheer on the Knights. Cheers!

I believe I’d take 9.5 points and UCF.
