OíLeary sucks and UCF canít afford to buy him out. C-USA teams get little over $1 mil per year from the conference. They have no choice but to keep him throughout the duration of his contract... or at least until that (although still mediocre) first, much larger Big East check is cashed. If they could have afforded to fire him, they would have after he killed his second player during late summer drills.

Now, who can they get? I donít know, but the Big East is basically the minor leagues for big time coaches. Look at all the guys that were coaches in the Big East that moved on to bigger and better things... Greg Schiano (TB Bucks), Brian Kelly (Notre Dame), Rich Rod (Michigan), Mark Dantonio (Michigan State), Todd Graham (Arizona State). Seriously! There are guys there now who will be moving on as well... Charlie Strong (Louisville), Butch Jones (Cincy), the dude at Pitt... look where Wisconsin is now, offensively, without him.

UCF could do much, much better... and will. But, eventually, heíll leave.

... and donít give me the "oh, theyíve only been 1-A for 15 years shit. USF? Florida Atlantic? FIU? Theyíve won more bowl games already.

OíLeary blows.


I pretty much agree with everything youíve said. The most important point you made was that there are much much much better coaches out there that we COULD get. And your final point couldnít be more spot on, OíLeary does in fact, blow.

In fact there are three reasons UCF lost that game, even while the offensive play-calling was keeping you IN it. (By that I mean lots of pitches, roll-outs and short passes that took the best advantage of Mizzouís bend-a-hell-of-a-lot -but-hopefully-don ít-break-very-ofte n-in-the-red-zone defense.) Over and over and over it was working. You were moving the ball and keeping possession against us as well as anyone this season not named Spurrier.

Those three reasons: 1) DGB, who made a big play, 2) Marcus Murphy, who made a big play, and 3) Sheldon Richardson, who made a big play. Two TDs and a fumble recovery made by very talented playmakers.

However: Iíd be willing to concede that non-UCF people overrate OíLeary because we have actually heard of him, and it surprises us that we have heard of the coach from UCF.

You compare UCF to USF, FIU and Florida Atlantic, and that seems like apples to apples to me... But your expectations to me sound quite a bit higher than that. As they should be, Iíd think.

No one here knows who DGB, Marcus Murphy or Sheldon Richardson is. Even other SEC schoolsí fans donít know.

Any college fan with a clue knows who Dorial is and he should have been tackled right when he caught the ball, that was a gift from the UCF secondary.

Lack of notoriety is irrelevant to my point, but more people know the initials for Dorial Green-Beckham than his full name, and he was the nationís top recruit last year. Marcus Murphy is not yet well known but itís looking promising, with three kick returns for touchdowns so far this year. A receiver named Jeremy Maclin started in much the same way at Missouri. Finally Shelden Richardson is leading all SEC lineman in tackles so if other SEC fans donít know who he is, they had better learn.

Eric youíre a subscriber to Rivals, how have you at least not know who DGB is? #1 rated recruit in the country last year. Richardson was a 5 star that Miami was in for, but he stayed home, as well. Never heard of Murphy though.
