This is great. Good for UCF!

I wonder what exposure value Carey's fake punt from the 11 generated for NIU?

UCF has also put up billboards challenging Alabama to a home and home series. It is a good example of the Clubber Lang strategy.

Remember our full-page ad in the Tribune challenging the Illini after our win against NU?

UCF's billboard in Tuscaloosa. BTW, this was paid for by fans, although they did ask the university for approval.

One of the most genius marketing campaigns ever... The sales from their "National Champs" tees & hats has been VERY strong as well

This is marketing at its best. Take advantage of being in the national spotlight and making money from it. And what did NIU do with all the Orange Bowl limelight?

I don't think there's a limelight like we like to think. Without that undefeated aspect it's not that big of a deal since there's a G5 in a NY6 bowl every year now. Does anyone even know the last 5 G5 reps since we were in the Orange bowl? UCF, Houston, Boise, WMU, UCF.

Heck,unlike NIU, Houston actually beat FSU. Think about that. Houston went 13-1. Beat Florida state. Was ranked 8th. And what effect did it have? 9-4 the next year. 7-5 the year after that.

IMO, One of the bigger issues that happens on this board is people thinking that the orange bowl should have catapulted NIU into stardom. It definitely can create some momentum, but it's not something that guarantees greater success. I think WMU fans are finding this out as well.

If we could have gone back to back and not lose to BG, it may have made a difference. But, that is hind sight.
