    I'm at the UCF/Gator baseball game last night and I get into a discussion with a UCF fan wearing his "National Championship" shirt. One of his rationale for the NC was "we shellacked an SEC team(Auburn).

    I guess after their defeat of the #1 Gator baseball team, the UCF National Championship baseball shirts will soon be hitting the streets soon!

    They beat a defeated Auburn team with nothing to play for.

    It's basically the same as us putting up SEC East Championship banners. Thankfully we took those down when we realized how sad they were. :D

    I'm in the "let them have some fun" camp.
    They had a super season and did some great things.
    SEC supremacy - and the CFP format - are not threatened by UCF's moment in the sun.

    I kinda hope UCF can hang in the top 25 this year.
    Doubtful but we'll see.

    At least we actually won those. UCF did not actually win the NC.

    Was that the year Spurrier put had them put up the "best in the sec" title on the wall in the swamp? I actually liked that, lol.

    Update to my original post:

    Now that UCF has won TWO games over the #1 Gators, they now can delusionally claim the title of World Series Champions!

    Rings and T-shirts coming soon!

    We wouldn't be having this discussion if we did not let them win two in a row. Perhaps it was healthy to lose? Lets hope we can handle Rhode Island then continue to be such a strong team.

    No. That was 1990, his first year when we were on total bullshit probation.

    People seek glory where they can find it.

    UCF does have an excellent Hotel Management program, 2nd only the UNLV, which is a far better place for them to hang their placard than any sports team.

    UCF finished 2017 ranked number 4 in the nation. They are currently ranked 57th in one preseason poll. That shows you how much the pollsters regarded Scott Frost. I'm just glad we didn't play them last year. That would not have been fun to watch.

    No offence but if last year's UCF football team needs to hang their placard in a hotel where would Florida hang their placard? In the hotel bathroom? A little humility is in order for the not so mighty Gators.

    Based on the 'logic' used by the fans of the university with a campus closest to Fantasyland don't be surprised if they don't claim having won the national championship in all three major men's sports this year. Their basketball was also undefeated until they played a ranked team.

    UCF has no men’s track team but they are still National champs over us because they beat us in another sport. Transitive property NCs apply to everything.
