    Maybe a NY6. They were never getting in the playoff.

    I knew that, hell I think my mom knew that. I was referring to them not even making a NY6 game. Sorry for the confusion.

    Having said all that, Go Tigers!!!!
    True above, and Memphis got two horrific calls in the last minute(s): 1) mystery holding call on a Darrell Henderson 35 yard touchdown run; 2) then with seconds left as Memphis was setting up a winning field goal, the UCF player was clearly, and I mean clearly, tackling the Memphis receiver prior to the ball reaching him. The Memphis player caught the ball still, but then could not reach the sideline in time to stop the clock. The AAC wants UCF to muddy the playoff picture, or at least, to get a major bowl bid which puts $$ in the league's pocket. Actually it is understandable and just more of the mess that is collegiate money sports.


    It is going to be a tough row to hoe this week for Memphis at UCF. However, Memphis has been playing better the last few weeks, and if they establish the run, it could be a contest. IF it rains, the Memphis quarterback (who must have the smallest hands in the world because he barely throws a spiral on a good day) might as well shot-put the football, and that allows the opposition to key on the run.

    UCF cannot play in a NY6 bowl if they don't win the AAC CCG. G5 autobid goes to highest ranked G5 Conference Champion. If UCF loses, they are not eligible. That would likely go to Boise State. However, UCF could still get an autobid into a NY6 bowl if they lose and don't drop too much. Hard to say.
