Does anyone think UCF would win either the Mountain or the West divisions

Recommended Posts

To be fair their win against Pitt was better than any MW win OOC (maybe SDSU's win against ASU was better). I just don't see the MW's argument this year. We have some good teams at the top, but ultimately they all lost to mediocre P5 teams OOC.

If USU beat Michigan State, Boise State beat Oklahoma State, and/or Fresno State beat Minnesota we would have a much better argument. But the fact is UCF took care of business OOC (while our top 3 all lost to 6-6/7-5 P5 teams), and won a conference that is on par or better than the MW. They easily deserve it this year, I just don't see how you could argue otherwise.

No. 

I say that as someone who's watched a lot of UCF games this year, as well as a lot of MWC games.

Maybe the fact they haven't won anything yet?

Yes true, obviously if they lose the championship game the winner of the MW will go. But if they beat Memphis, I don't see how you could argue that anyone else is more deserving.

The aac is way overrated this year, UCF took care of business in a weak conference. They beat Memphis the first time with some help from the refs. If they were to play the Lobos conference schedule this year: SUDS, FSU, plus mountain division, UCF would have lost a game or two.

2 years without a loss is an accomplishment no matter what conference.  They are a really good football team.

Yep. It's hard to do, for sure. Boise made it about as far as they have before the 2011 Nevada game. Almost two full seasons.

This ^^^, plus the Big Sky Champ would have a losing league record in the AAC or MWC.

Maybe. They'd certainly be one of the better teams. But I think our Top 3 teams could beat them. 

I would be the first to admit that I am a huge MWC Homer ( shameless )but,  i would suggest multiple  wins vs. UCF ie:

BSU, USU, SUDS, UNR, probably Wyoming and even Fresno would have little trouble wit UCF even with their starting QB.

Just sayin'

:rock:well , maybe not Fresno  ... :secret:

Living here in Florida and watching a lot of their games, I think they would beat our top teams. They have a potent offense.  This is, of course, before their quarterback got hurt. Their quarterback will be be drafted assuming he makes a full recovery.

They really don't look that impressive and that was before they lost their QB.

Zero defense against a really weak schedule.

The Big Sky champ would win that league.

Unlikely this year.. They would struggle to win both divisions this year. I think last  year, they would have had a chance to win the league.

No, Boise's wins over Fresno, and Utah State are better than that win over Pitt. SDSU's wins over Boise and ASU are better than that win as well.

Boise barely beat Nevada.....beating UCF isn't a gimme.

Of the people replying, how many took the time to watch 6 or 7 UCF games min this year?  How many watched the Auburn bowl win?  How many watched last year's UCF regular season games?  A team that went back to back undefeated seasons, won multiple P5 games, and is top 15 again would be favored to win the MWC.  Put it another way, if Boise or Fresno had done the same exact thing and was on a 20+ winning streak and knocked off an SEC top team in a bowl game,  would you be questioning if they could win the AAC?
