lost to the 4th best team in the SEC that was missing 8 or 9 starters.  

By choice

 

They weren't injured or sick

 

Those players quit on their team and are a embarrassment to the sport

 

If I had the talent to play the sport I would want to play until the last second but these players think a BCS bowl game is so meaningless that it's fine to sit it out

Sorry but if I'm going to make millions as long as I don't get hurt I'm also sitting out a meaningless bowl game.   UCF just lost to LSU's second team defense.  Now that's embarrassing

And if me playing one game gives me a injury that keeps me out of NFL then maybe I wasn't good enough to be there in the first place

Honestly, at first I was against players like Fournette or McCaffrey from sitting out, but the more I thought about it, the more it makes sense. These aren't 7th rounders. These are guys where dropping 10 picks can cost a million dollars. injuries might be part of the game but, I need to do everything to protect my career.

Then why not just sit out junior season and go into training for NFL?

 

It basically same idea

Joey Boss has essentially done that, but most rising sophomores aren't ready to be compared to juniors and seniors. Physical characteristics aren't enough, need game film for NFL.

Also sitting out your junior year will probably hurt your stock and cost you millions.  Sitting out 1 game isn't going to hurt you and your season is basically over other than beating a fake national champ.

UCF lost because they were dominated at the line of scrimmage. Even so, they were still in the game and but for five dropped catches by receivers/a tight end, and a dumb ass celebration after a stop, they may still have won the game. Milton was badly missed for this game. No lack of love for Mack, for he is talented enough, but he needs to learn that he can't just stand there stationery in the pocket and expect to not get sacked unless his Offensive Line clearly dominated the defensive line, which was far from the case.

Still, UCF is on the verge of building a sustainable program that will elevate it to elite status for years to come. O'Leary could not have left too soon, IMHO; and Scott Frost (I totally understand why he left for Nebraska), may live to regret the day he left this program.

Below one can see how Alabama is recruiting differently than 10 years ago.  Note the difference in number of players from Louisiana, Texas, California and Maryland/DC, where they are obviously recruiting hard now.  Louisiana is loaded with talent, and Alabama is going after it.  As I mentioned earlier, Saban has taken recruiting to a new level this decade, penetrating all of the hs football hotbeds.  

2018-players from 23 different states, 2008-players from 13 different states

Comparison of players on roster in 2018 vs 2008:

Alabama-38(2018), 60(2008)

Florida-12(2018), 13(2008

Texas-11(2018), 5(2008)

Louisiana-11(2018), 1(2008)

Georgia-7(2018), 8(2008)

California-6(2018), 1(2008)

Maryland/DC-6(2018), 0(2008)

Mississippi-4(2018), 6(2008)

S Carolina-4(2018), 1(2008)

Tennessee-2(2018), 7(2008)

Well, everyone, the game was a yawner, but at least we got to see that thrilling halftime show.:rolleyes:  I am glad to see college football is making an effort to reach mainstream America.

This is what you would get if the Hamburglar and the homeless lady from Home Alone 2 had a baby.

    • I have spent some many hours this week getting these previews together and I am stoked that I will be posting them here in the coming hours today. Also the rankings are coming and I am wrapping them up in the wee hours of the morning. I will post the links as they go live but here is an idea on the schedule and what to expect    
    • The running back is Daijun Edwards, a four star who received an offer from Kirby Smart in the NINTH grade! Although he didn't play football in the eighth grade, due to growth plate issues, where the muscle grows faster than the bone structure! He had to have surgery that year to rectify the problem. But is back in form, as one the top backs in not only Georgia, but America! Barring injury this season, he will break the all time rushing record for the Packers! And we've had three All Americans in the past, plus two Georgia Offensive Players of the Year! But good news for those not named UGA! Kirby has a glut of current talent at RB! So Daijun has opened up his recruiting to other Power Five schools, including Auburn and FSU, where those two will already have two players on their rosters from Colquitt, in 2020!
    • Lakeland looks good.  That's all I'm gonna say.  
    • Lakeland destroys them. Like Nolebull said, it’s sad to think that just 7 years ago, Manatee was regarded one of the best teams in the nation. Now, they’re a dumpster fire. They’ll be lucky to keep this game respectable going into halftime. This game will not be close. 45-17 Lakeland
    • Dook Graham is at his best with the ball in his hands. I think he could end up being a little like Brandon James was when he gets to Gainesville.
