As much as Blazer fans hate the SEC they still buy into the SEC propaganda.

Memphis and UCF have to beat some top P5 teams in the regular season before I believe they can win a championship or beat any SEC team by 10+. Beating Old Miss, Maryland, Kansas etc doesn't prove much. UCF's Fiesta Bowl win vs #6 Baylor was great but then they cratered. Maybe they can meet and beat a top P5 in their bowl. If Memphis football wants national respect, schedule and beat teams at the top of P5 conferences, not the bottom.

I think Troy could give either a hell of a game.

But those top P5 teams won't play anyone who might challenge their dominance. That's why college football sucks.

And that is the truest part. It’s not sec propaganda in my opinion though, it’s watching football. I don’t see how either of those teams could beat a team like auburn/Oklahoma/etc. anywhere right now though.

I love watching the SEC lose. That's why I watch their games. But I watch a lot of games period. IMO what sets the top of the P5 apart is their athleticism on defense, particularly the DL. There is a very finite amount of 6-6 300 lb football players with elite athleticism. They go to the programs with the highest profile and surest path to the NFL.

Great game for the AAC. Entertaining football. Hope both teams get a good P5 opponent.

RE: UCF - Memphis is a ping pong match shoot out.
Oklahoma is built very much like UCF. Statistically they look a lot alike. I like this UCF team. They rep the G5 very well. They're fun to watch.

That said, Oklahoma would score a hundred points on UCF. There's a big difference in athletes. They tore up a very good TCU defense today. UCF's would have been converted to confetti.

What you saw today out of Memphis was why I didn't want to see them against us in the B'ham Bowl. It wouldn't have been pretty.

Nebraska will announce Scott Frost as HC tomorrow, but he and his staff will coach UCF in the Peach Bowl, per Football Scoop.

RE: UCF - Memphis is a ping pong match shoot out.
As long as the top P5 teams can sign dozens of the top ESPN 300 recruits while the top G5 teams sign only one or two at most, the perceived gulf between the two will continue. If someone made those top P5 teams meet the top G5 teams every year, the recruiting advantage will be diminished just like it was after the first years following the merger of the NFL and the AFL. After the early years, the NFL advantage decreased with the common draft.

UCF with the 62-55 win in double OT.

With OSU beating up Wisconsin, UCF will be the only undefeated team left.

With luck, they might move up from 14 to 13.
