"So excited for him," Heupel said. "You get the news, you talk to him on the phone and you see him the next day after the (doctor) visit and he's the training room doing squat jumps. Those hurdles, those are phenomenal. A couple days ago he's changing out his brace from one that's restrictive to one that gives him full functional movement to do everything that he would want to do. Those are great moments in the mountains that he's had to climb from when this whole thing started. I don't think any of us can appreciate how far he has come and the mental toughness, the physical toughness too, to get up and fight every day. He's still got a long ways to go. He knows that. But he's got great joy. It's kind of like pushing a snowball uphill. Get to the top and you push downhill and it's starting to pick up speed. He's really excited about where he's at and where he has an opportunity to go."

rumors are that McKenzie is dressed for tonight's game (7:30pm ESPN2). Maybe he comes in for a symbolic snap if we get a good lead against Tulsa tonight.

That was a tough game for me to watch.

UCF loses to Tulsa. Ugh. UCF played horrible.

McKenzie wasn't dressed and didn't play.

There are rumors that McKenzie may see the field against USF for this Black Friday game. It's two years since the knee injury and the same field it happened on.

He has been running the scout team so he is ready.

I could play QB for UCF against USF and UCF would win. Goodness gracious USF has gone down the tube fast.

Yea, I would like to say that about FSU also. Great article in ESPN on the 6 year decline. Now this debacle with Clemson. Any 3, 4, or5 stars who were looking at FSU are running away. They are hosed for years to come.

I read that ESPN on downfall of fsu. Jimbo fisher was the cause. Letting criminoles on the team then knowing he was leaving and stopped recruiting.


UCF @USF 3:30pm today. ESPN. Hope to see McKenzie get in and take some snaps. Maybe, or maybe not.

Jimbo most dif put the screws to FSU. He spent a TON of money on new buildings and stuff ..... pretty much sucking the donors dry, making it VERY hard to sign a top flight replacement coach. Then left the player cupboards barren.

McKenzie Milton will go down as one of the best players in the history of the UCF football program. On Thursday he announced he'd be leaving to pursue his dreams and gave a hearty thank you to Knight Nation.

"Plans to enter the transfer portal." Still dreams of playing in NFL.

Speculation that he might land under former UCF Coach Frost at Nebraska.

"It's been something I've been thinking about since the beginning of the season--because I knew I was on track to be able to play again," says Milton.

"I came to Coach Heupel during the bye week in November - I didn't want to blindside him at the end of the season.

"With the trajectory of our team, Dillon has earned the right to be our quarterback. And yet I have one shot to chase a dream.

"If I was a coach, I couldn't make DG take a back seat. He's earned it. But, at the same time, I want to play, too.

"I told Coach, 'It's hard, one of the hardest things for me to do. but it makes the most sense.'

"I tried to think about it more logically than emotionally because I bleed black and gold - this is where my heart is at. At the same time, I've got one shot to go get it.

"Coach got emotional--I love him, he loves me. I think maybe I caught him off-guard - but it's just one of those things.

"It's DG's team now - I feel like the torch is passed. He's gonna take it to a whole 'nother level.

"I've watched college football all my life, and any time I've ever seen two quarterbacks compete it hasn't worked out. DG is like a little brother to me--and with the trajectory he's on, I wouldn't want to slow down his momentum.

"I don't think anything could come between DG and me - but I felt it was the best decision for both sides."

Your boy Scottie Frost needs someone to help save his job. He hasn't even come close to smelling a winning season in Lincoln and Husker fan is very soon going to stop giving even this most favorite of sons any more leash.

FSU had success with 2 QBs (Jimmy Jordan and Wally Woodham) from 1977-1979, but KZ isn't old enough to remember that.

Frost and Milton could be the redemption story of next year. It's high frame for sure.

Yeah, I don't know if Frost would be there long enough to see KZ out of his eligibility. If I were Coach Frost, I wouldn't bet my job on a QB with that injury and lack of field time the last 2 years. Likewise, if I were KZ and wanting to play in the NFL, I wouldn't be looking at Nebraska.

I wish them both the best, but they're both gonna need a lot of the right breaks. KZ will have to land somewhere with the right fit.

That would be some kind of comeback story. Scott Frost said a couple weeks ago that he would hire McKenzie for his coaching staff. He is definitely going that route into coaching. I can see him coming back to UCF has a head coach in the future like Scott Frost went back to his Alma Mater to be the savior. Lord knows Cornhusker football is a cult-ish religion in Nebraska. What else they got?

Nebraska AD recently said Scott Frost isn't going anywhere as along as he is AD. So, they gonna have to crucify him also.

Dillon Gabriel is a better Qb than McKenzie is in my opinion. He is much more accurate passer and smarter with the football. McKenzie is a Manziel like-clone and gunslinger risk chancer. Dillon is the pocket passer that can hit a receiver anywhere on the field. Not as effective of running but does at sneaky times. McKenzie with the ball in his hand the play is never dead and is exciting to watch. But, NFL, prob not. Dillon Gabriel is NFL caliber like Tua. I wish McKenzie the best but he is doing the right thing by transferring, and not more to play, but to have a better resume at coaching. He stated that is what he wants to do. Frost likes to have a back up Qb clip board holder. He has really helped Gabriel in the past two years with that and is just as part of Dillon's Gabriel record setting two year career. Breaking Daunte Culpeppers freshman records to holding the #1 offense in the NCAA this year.

He's a great guy and adversity has revealed his great character. But he's aging out and I agree their first string starter is just better. Their are lots of variables here that will make this interstinf and worth following.
