    O'Leary needs to give ball to Stanback and quit playing games

    UCF needs to prove last year wasn't a fluke
    Last year was an accidental abnormal aberration of an anomaly. A quirky confluence of lucky breaks, fortuitous bounces and serendipitous circumstances. In other words, UCF's season was a fluke. At least that's what all the so-called experts seem...
  • Marc Daniels has seen it all in 20 years as UCF's radio voice

    Marc Daniels has seen it all in 20 years as UCF's radio voice
    Until the other day, I never really understood why Marc Daniels has been broadcasting UCF games for all this time. In my opinion, he is good enough, smart enough and smooth enough to be the radio voice of his beloved New York Yankees or the L.A. Lakers,...

     UCF president John Hitt on Power Five autonomy: "We'll still be able to stay in the game."

    In post-Bortles era at UCF, look for O'Leary to go back to basics
    As he talks about his new play toy — big, fast, punishing and powerful running back William Stanback — you can almost see George O'Leary's mouth watering and his heart pounding. Stanback approached him during the offseason and told O'Leary...

    Professor Pigskin: FSU, UCF and, yes, Gators will have championship-caliber seasons
    Running off at the typewriter … We are just a few days away from the official kickoff of college football season, which means it's time once again for the studio audience to ask questions and seek answers from the "Oracle of Oblong" –...
  • Gators, Jaguars, Bucs, Dolphins? FSU is once-proud State of Florida's only saving grace on gridiron

     Gators, Jaguars, Bucs, Dolphins? FSU is once-proud State of Florida's only saving grace on gridiron
    Thank you, Florida State. Thank you for saving us from being in a total State of Embarrassment. A complete State of Disarray. In the name of Bobby Bowden, Don Shula, Steve Spurrier, Howard Schnellenberger and Tony Dungy, what happened to the college...

    The Prospector: Unheralded, yet certainly not unproductive
    In football, at any level, there is always that guy who has a person reaching for the game program. The unheralded player who is making all the plays. No one's ever heard of him. These players like to get dirty. They take all comers and accept all...
