COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON IS HERE
Come this Thursday, the UCF Knights will charge on to the field (see what I did there) vs UCONN, and off we go with real/live football inside the state of Florida. UCF is coming off of one of the most magical seasons in CFB history, and certainly the most magical in their own. The Canes had themselves an impressive 2017 campaign, playing for the ACC Championship and making it to a major bowl game (Orange Bowl vs Wisconsin) in Mark Richt's 2nd season with the team.
The same joy was not felt from our CFB neighbors to the north, who both disappointed greatly, and even lost their head coaches in the offseason. FSU went 7-6, barely sneaking into a bowl game, and Florida finished 4-7, firing Jim McElwain in the process.
But, this is the dawn of a new year! Each of these 4 teams comes into the 2018 season with their own set of expectations. FSU expects a big bounce back with new HC Willie Taggart and a healthy roster, same goes for the Gators under Dan Mullen - some SEC pundits even picked them to finish 2nd in the SEC East. UCF fans are cautiously optimistic that the Knights could go unbeaten again, and the Canes hope to keep stride with the Clemson Tigers in the ACC with the load of talent of their roster.
Which team is set up to shock their fan base this year? In a good way, or a bad way?
