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

The Massey Composite also includes the human polls, and not all computer polls are created equal.

True, but it includes a total of approx 110 different systems. No particular system is weighted, so it's certainly enough to get a consensus.

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.

Yes, I think it would win both. Conversely I think us, Fresno and Utah state would have two or three losses if we were in the  AAC.

Wins against PITT, Cincy, Temple, and Memphis are pretty impressive.

The AAC took care of business ooc while the MWC got beat in games that mattered. I do think UCF would be ranked and going to the conference championship game if they were in either MW division.

I would not call any of those wins "impressive".   They were good wins but hardly impressive.  I don't think Fresno, Boise, Utah State or UCF had any impressive wins this year.   The 2 biggest MW wins this year were SDSU beating Arizona State and Boise being Troy.   Those were good wins as well but not impressive.   The only G5 win I would call impressive this year was Akron beating Northwestern and thats only because NW is in the B10 title game.

I feel like Boise has gotten better as the year went on and that USU needed more challenge with their MWC schedule to get better.  And I think hats should be off to UCF, they are finishing up an awesome 2 year run and they deserve all the accolades they get (not ones they give themselves) from college football experts.   

 

They could win the MWC but we should factor in altitude and cold weather....not sure how'd they would play outside of the warm south for the entire season because they've never had to.

UCF and Cincy would be 1 and 2 in the MWC west division. I don't know about the mountain division. Houston and Memphis are likely to be in the middle of the MWC mountain.

We have a tendency to greatly overate ourselves on this board.

Of course I do occasionally read the AAC board and the ACC board and they have similar problems.

You have to just leave last year out of the argument. They don't seem to be very good on Defense this year. High octane Offense/Bad Defensive teams are really unpredictable.

I would love to have a shot at them, and would be interested to see what Fresno would do with them. 

I think they would contend in either Division, but again, how would they do up against a good, physical Defense that gets after the QB? 

I think they'd win the MWC if they were here, but they wouldn't do so undefeated.

well UCF really has just 1 good win this year, they beat a good Pitt team whereas Fresno lost to a 6-6 Minn and Boise lost to 6-6 Okie St.  

Pitt is mediocre at best. I would simply categorize them as the least crappy team in the worst division of all P5 conferences...there is a reason they are playing in a conference championship game with a 7-5 record. They will be very fortunate to not lose by 35+ against Clemson.

I would love to see UCF play the Pokes in November at 7,200 feet in a raging blizzard. UCF could seriously have players keel over dead if that ever happened.

the world may never know...what I do care about is if they can beat Memphis this week. Thing is, if I were a betting man, I'd take UCF.

Well, if Memphis does beat UCF, how will they send their Conference Title Trophy to UH Manoa? US Postal, FedEx or UPS?

After watching a season's worth of AAC games, it is almost appalling how little defense is played in that conference across the board. I'm not sure their offense would be as prolific against a full MWC schedule as they have been in the AAC. They are talented and should be given credit for what they have done, which is difficult at any level, but I honestly don't think they would win either division.

The over/under is 80 so the over is probably a decent play for this one.

Memphis +3.5 says the oddsmakers think this game will be close. 

It's nice to think that you could lose by a field goal to UCF and still collect if you get 3.5. 

However you might celebrate inappropriately around a bunch of other Memphis fans.
