    2006 the Gators beat UCF 42-0. A year later, UCF had to pay Florida $100,000 buyout. About 12 years later programs certainly change. Why does it have to be 2 for 1 for UCF to play the Gators regular season?

    That being said, LSU's still a high caliber opponent despite losing to Texas A&M. Without UCF's starting QB, I still think it'll be an interesting game surprisingly. They showed up to play against Memphis and I expect the scoring to be high.

    Army vs. Houston another smaller match-up looking forward to. I remember when Houston beat South Florida and were looking to potentially play in the AAC championship before things got weird at the end. Army's about even though and expect to take the win but could go eitherway. A good match-up.

    I think Ohio State could beat Alabama. They've just been uneven a few times but looking pretty stellar.

    Michigan and Florida again... Wisconsin and Miami again.

    Overall, a lot of very interesting even matchups this year that I have no idea how I would bet on.

    In a surprising move, Miami HC Mark Richt has announced his retirement. While the AD is saying he was blindsided by the move, it sounds like Richt was basically being pushed out and decided to move on instead of putting himself, the school and the team through a season of uncertainty.

    Edit: So Miami has hired their former DC Manny Diaz to be HC but had to pay Temple $4 million to buy him out of his HC contract with them. Seems this could have been avoided if they'd had a succession plan in place if they knew Richt was already on the hotseat.

    Kinda surprised at how high-scoring this game has actually been, especially with both teams having pretty decent defenses.

    First time in a long while where a team is making Alabama's defense look really average.

    Watching Bama get pantsed in the title game was sweet.

    At least, until I saw Nikki Haley on the Clemson sideline :barf:

    I rewatched the title game, and I'm still shocked at how Clemson's D was able to dominate Bama for nearly 3 quarters. I would have liked to have seen a closer game, but as a fan of good defense, I still found the night enjoyable.

    Although I'm enjoying the conference hardwood action, I'm still missing football a little. This was a memorable season.

    There’s not a March Madness thread on the hype so I’ll just say it here: War Eagle.

    With last night's loss to Cincinnati, I don't know if Chip Kelly will last the full season. His record at UCLA is now 3-10.
