ECU vs UCF

I didn't see the whole game,but I watched most of the 4th quarter. UCF seems to be having the same problem we are with drops. They've had a couple for first downs that would have helped alot, maybe even won the game in regulation. The last 2 mins had 3 turnovers or something like that. It was one of the ugliest 2 mins I've seen, then on the very first play of overtime, UCF QB throws an interception and ECU kicks a field goal to win. That's good, because it keeps are very slim chances of the St. Pete bowl alive. But man, what a sloppy game.

Re: ECU vs UCF

Can anyone else say one dimensional?  They got lucky with Smith, struck gold really, and he carried the team, kicking and screaming to a conference championship and a bowl berth.  But he couldn't help them win the bowl, and they obviously couldn't help themselves this year after he left.

FIU = no longer the worst team in Florida

They did get lucky with Smith, it's true. We got lucky with a Smith of our own.

I know many people would argue that CUSA teams are better than SBC teams, so UCF's record cannot be compared to FAU's or FIU's… although SBC was pretty evenly matched against CUSA last year.

In any case, while I think FIU is certainly not the worst team in Florida, I think it's a stretch to say that UCF is the worst team just because they're 2-7. They have talent but they need to figure out how to win again. They're starting a true freshmen (Calabrese) at QB so that likely contributes to their woes as well.

Here are current the standings for Florida Div.1 teams, with bold being bowl-eligible:

UF 8-1
FSU 7-2
USF 6-3
Miami 6-3

FAU 4-5
FIU 4-5
UCF 2-7

Both FAU and FIU can become bowl eligible without beating each other, though in reality neither one would likely get a bowl bid at 6-6. We know this. We can enter the Shula Bowl as 6-5, they can enter as 5-5. They win, they walk out 6-5 and should take care of WKU to finish 7-5. If we win out, we finish 7-5.

Since they'll be fired up either way, it's best for us if FIU loses to ULM. That'll put them at 4-6 and a longer shot at getting a bowl bid. If they win, they'll be focused on keeping momentum and that could raise them up over us.
