Embarrassing

UCF lost to Pittsburgh last night 52-7. The game was televised nationally on ESPN. Oh, it was painful to watch. We couldn't do anything right. Pitt ran the opening kickoff for a touchdown, and it was all downhill from there. UCF turned the ball over 4 times when we had a chance to turn things around.

We do have a couple of players who are fun to watch. Backup QB Kyle Israel completed 13 of 19 passes for 158 yards and zero interceptions. And Kevin Smith is a great running back.

Let's hope we beat Rice next week and get some redemption on the season.

I was watching UCF a couple weeks ago, and maybe it was the camera work but they looked like a highschool team.

Im waiting for the day when this 50k student school can pony up a program worth being proud of.

Did you know that the day before the game one of the players father died? The dad was only like 37. The kid and one of the coaches flew home. I heard that it rocked the whole team pretty hard. Hopefully by the next game things will a little better.

I did not know that, Lindsey. That sure puts a human face on the loss, doesn't it?
