UCF had a championship within it’s grasp and they choked it away. How? Poor coaching. You cannot make a terrible mistake like not killing a live football and letting a guy pick it up and score a cheap touchdown. That’s a bush league mistake. A coach with as many years under his belt as O’Leary has to be better than that! That’s inexcusable! I’ve been saying this for years now and I will say it again, FIRE HIM!! FIRE HIM NOW!! You will never get anywhere in big time college football giving away games like this. NEVER! This game was BLOWN! You let them score at the end of the first half on a drive that should have been stopped. Their coach kept making bonehead decisions not to kick field goals, he’s practically handing the championship tropy to you with a bow on it, and you drop it and smash it into a million pieces.
So now we are playing a bowl game within driving distance from campus at the Trop. I hate to tell people not to show up, but I sure understand why many won’t bother. It’s going to be hard to get excited about playing in this game knowing we choked away the Liberty Bowl bid. Maybe after two off weekends the fury over this game will go away a bit and I’ll feel like catching one more game before the long off-season begins. I don’t know. But right now, I am just disgusted that we had two shots at a glorified high school and couldn’t beat them once.
