I’ve spent the better half of the week arguin’ with crazy UCF fans about their instant claim that they are the National Champions of college football. These duns have lost their darn minds. I do believe that they got screwed out of a chance to compete for the title by not makin’ the playoff. They should have at least been ranked No.4 at the end of the season because they were the only undefeated team left standin’ regardless of conference affiliation. Yeah, I know that they weren’t in a Power 5 but they’ve got players.
However, I completely understand why they weren’t because they play in the dull American Athletic Conference which is in no way playin’ at the same level as the Power 5 conferences. So even though they missed an opportunity they still aren’t the freakin’ champs. I can sympathize with them but they ain’t the champs bruh. If you didn’t win the game in Atlanta on Monday night you aren’t the champs. It is what it is. Stop it.
However, I’m all in with them when they’re right!! A bunch of UCF fans chipped in with a GoFundMe page and put up a billboard in Tuscaloosa that read “Congratulations Alabama! How bout a home & home series with UCF?”
Now that joint was spot on!!! I’ve been writin’ for years about how Alabama always hides in Tuscaloosa EVERY year playin’ horrible non-conference games to the point of nausea. They only leave Tuscaloosa to play the first game of the season on a neutral site in either Dallas or Atlanta. They never play true road games durin’ their non-conference schedule and that makes a huge difference in how they can show up to the national championship every year.

Playin’ a true road game in college football is probably the hardest thing to do in sports. We saw LSU finally go north to Wisconsin in 2016 and get the brakes beaten off of them. Why? Because they weren’t playin’ in the confines of Baton Rouge. They were in Camp Randall.
So I’m with UCF all day on this one. However, I believe that they’ve blown their wad at this point. Without Scott Frost they’re about to be UCF all over again. A good team but not good enough to do what they did this year. They won’t go undefeated ever again but I get what their sayin’.
“We’ll come down there and then you gotta come to us.” That’s what most teams are doin’. We saw Oklahoma and Ohio State just recently play the home and home series with Ohio State losin’ this year and OU losin’ last year. Those types of games can and will eventually keep a team out of the playoff.
However, Alabama won’t ever take that chance. That’s why they schedule duns like Colorado State, Fresno State and freakin’ Mercer to come in Week 12 while everybody else is playin’ for their playoff lives. I’ve said it a million times. There needs to be a rule that forces EVERYBODY to schedule a home and home with other FBS opponents.
As long as Alabama can keep hidin’ in Tuscaloosa playin’ the Lil’ Sisters of the Poor every year and schedulin’ a smoke break Week 12 they’ll keep dominatin’ college football or until some hater tells it and the NCAA starts sniffin’ around the program. We all know that college football is cyclical. It won’t last forever. So at some point it’ll fall off.
I’m glad UCF called them out with the billboard because I’ve been sayin’ it to the point of nauseam because these fake media-type at ESPN are in bed with the SEC and won’t say a word about it. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
2) Ole boy: noun – the person that I’m currently talkin’ about.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
