College football is a joke. The boys are giving their concussed brains so that the NCAA and colleges can make their money. They should be busted as a monopoly under federal antitrust laws. It is an embarrassment Mr Flush.

The pros are worth watching.

You won't get to the pros w/o going thru college first (duh). I don't mind reimbursing college athletes fairly, but you can argue that 5 years of free education (even for benchwarmers and punters) is a pretty good reimbursement, as well as a lifetime investment in those who won't be giving up their brains every Sunday. Not sure where to draw the line or divvy up the money that flows in.

Of course you won't get to the pros without college, ergo the monopoly comment. The NFL is complicit of course. The scholarship is the joke, chump change and why boosters have to sweeten the pot or risk not getting the good kids.

Graduation rates aren't the best of course and only a small group even make it to the big dance.

Manziel got in trouble for selling autographs. give me a break.

Graduation rates

And from the article:

"Meanwhile, at the top level, universities make tens of millions in revenue from their college football programs. The most recent data shows Clemson's football revenue in 2017 totaled $612,117.61 per each of its 85 scholarship players, while LSU's revenue exceeded $1 million per scholarship player."

scammed

That was the worst UCF game of all time. sitting in the stands and no point did we have a chance to even stand up and cheer. It was over the first BYU snap.

To make excuses, UCF defense was depleted. Our #1 DB Richie Grant was sitting out for the NFL. Which sucks.

Some soul searching going on as UCF football fans and players. Sorry that was a really bad showcase of football. We left in the mid-3rd quarter. Enough was enough.

on another note, FAU stadium is pretty nice. Easy to get in and out of.

Like mentioned somewhere earlier, players sitting out for the NFL for the final games really hurt the team. Individually it's great for the player to sit out and not risk injury due to potential money making...but overall, its hurting college football.


"The table was set for a tough night for the Knights' defense before the ball was even snapped. Over and above the fact that the Cougars have a Heisman Trophy candidate under center in Zach Wilson, UCF was down five starters on defense, not to mention the personnel issues that unit has faced thorough the year. This included Otis Thrope Trophy finalist, Richie Grant at safety, defensive backs Aaron Robinson and Derek Gainous, as well as Landon Woodson and Stephon Zayas in the trenches."

I was rooting for you but their touchdowns were always too little too late. That targeting call early on your defender didn't help. It's not soul searching, it's just picking yourself up, dusting yourself off and playing more football. UCF needs to recruit a lot better a lot closer. They are still having the growing pains that started with Blake Bortles. Getting bigger and better is a blessing and a curse. Once it's started, there is no going back and the expectations don't get any lower. UCF will now have to keep up with the Jones's and every dirty thing that comes with that. Their little bounce house will be replaced again once they graduate again to the next level. It's sad to see a great little team become a mediocre big team.

Thanks. All teams go thru ups and downs. UCF is a little fish swimming in a big ocean. Glad they made a dent.

But, that was THE worst UCF game over. Embarrassing. How can I win internet forum arguments with that?!?

I can't.

Heisman final four announced. Two Bama players, Clemson, Gator. IDK, that BYU Qb was pretty good.

I'd give it to Trevor Lawrence though. He is the best. I'll follow him in the NFL.

I'm obviously prejudiced, but, I would vote for Trask as he did the most with the least support. He had no running game, was under a pass rush/pressured most of the time and his receivers (except Pitts who missed two games and Toney who only emerged late in the season) were well covered most of the time. His stats were as high as anyone's even with the lack of support. And, his story is amazing - non starter in HS, pretty much unrecruited, sat on the bench until Franks' season ending injury and then KABOOM, Heisman candidate.
