An exciting year ahead, but damn it must be tough to grow in the shadow of last year's perfect season.

Which begs the question...Is it easier to take over a successful program or a failing one?

First UCF loss and we will all want to fire the coach! He keeps winning and we think it was all Scott Frost doing.

Tough situation. I like the new Coach Heupel. He has done well in interviews and looks to run the same type of offense as Frost. Plus similar story line moving up to first head coach job.

Having Randy Shannon as DC has some experience on that side of the ball.

UCF returns a strong nucleus of players from last year. Will be an interesting year! Spring ball has started and the spring game is scheduled for Apr 21.

Certainly taking over after a very successful coach can be a two edged sword.

If the new coach inherits a well stocked team and at least keeps the program competitive, the can be assured of (typically) a 3-5 year grace period.

However, if they are not competitive or once the new coach reaches the point were it is "his" players on the field ..... the leash can get very short.
