We’ve become mega pariahs on Twitter. It’s crazy. It’s like everyone is watching the game cheering for UCF to lose you see random “experts” who didn’t watch a game last year saying the huge difference is UCF’s defense is missing Shaq Griffin. Shaq was great but they’re only saying this because people have heard his story.

UCF’s defense was *awful* last year. They’re better this year, and but maybe not as good at generating turnovers.

UCF’s offense this year is not nearly as fast or as impressive. I can’t tell you exactly why. We did lose our star WR in trequan smith. But honestly not much else. Maybe the change in coaching? I don’t know.

We don’t look as good. We still look good. It’s definitely not the defense — they’ve always been bad. But we’ve shown that a #1 offense doesn’t need their defense to do much aside from not stay on the field too long.

CFP Committee mental gymnastics:

Ohio State is losing at half to 2-6 Nebraska and this shows how much of a loss Scott Frost was to UCF; Ohio State is very good.

It’s okay, the stage is set for the annual Alabama Clemson and Georgia invitational.

LSU falls all the way to UCF in the newest coaches poll, so now that’s happened like four weeks in a row.

I'm too busy over here trying to feign happiness over beating Baylor today.

Ohio State has played only two games against teams over .500. Michigan State (6-5) and Penn State (8-3). They’ve also been absolutely walloped by a 5-6 Purdue team, required a 4th quarter comeback to defeat 4-7 Nebraska, and were lucky that 5-6 Maryland botched a play in OT going for 2 for the win to earn their most recent victory.

Strength of schedule tho

The more you look back at their game against us, as well, the worst it looks. It was close until it wasn't.

100%, that was a late breakaway.

Also the narrative of UCF having a had nominal unweighted SoS is falling apart. They’ve played some really bad teams, but now have victories over I think 3 7-4 teams and a 9-2 team.

Down goes McKenzie Milton’s leg, down goes our star, and down goes our odds of making change to the status quo.

Hopefully he’s okay but assuming that’s his season done, we will need an amazing game on defense to win our conference, and a miracle to win whatever bowl game we end up in.

They’re not going to crawl over and die. Too determined.

Can we play the “but the defense is a concern!” card about Ohio State?

Ho-lee shit. Didn't see that coming.

Here are my three scenarios I now see happening:

Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Oklahoma: Oklahoma beats Texas, Alabama beats Georgia

Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, OSU: Oklahoma loses to Texas, Alabama beats Georgia, OSU beats Northwestern

Clemson, Notre Dame, Georgia, Alabama: Georgia beats Alabama, nothing else matters.

Scenario 3 is the worst possible outcome.
