Central Florida ...... From 0-12 to 12-0 in 2 seasons (First Team Ever)

Recommended Posts

o

 

Central Florida became the first Division I school ever to go from winless to undefeated in the regular season in a 2-year span (2015-2017.)

 

2015: ... 0-12

2017: l.. 11-0

 

Central Florida's previous head coach George O'Leary also went winless in his first season with the team in 2004 (0-11.)

And similar to current head coach Scott Frost, O'Leary eventually led the team to the heights of Division I-A football with a 12-1 season and a 52-42 victory over #6 Baylor in that season's Fiesta Bowl ........ but that was in 2013, 9 seasons after his inaugural winless season with the team.

Central Florida beat Memphis State in overtime to win the American Athletic Conference Championship game today.

They went from 0-12 to 12-0 in 2 years.

 

2015: ... 0-12

2017: llll 12-0

 

Also, this is Central Florida's 2nd trip to an upper-tier bowl game in 5 years, with the previous one being a big victory over over #6 Baylor in the 2013 season's Fiesta Bowl ........ not bad a school that didn't have a football program until 1979, and didn't moved up from Division I-AA to Division I-A until 1996.

Auburn beat TWO playoff teams going away this season (Georgia by a score of 40-17, and Alabama by a score of 26-14.)

Subsequently, the undefeated Knights had a very tough task in their second-ever upper-tier bowl game.

 

They took on the challenge, and proceeded to complete their undefeated season with a big win over the highly-regarded Tigers.

 

2015: ... 0-12

2017: llll 13-0

ONE YEAR LATER (December 1st, 2018)

 

The Knights lost Archie Griffin Award winner McKenzie Milton for the season last week in the season finale against South Florida.

Subsequently, they needed a big game from 2nd-string Freshman QB Darriel Mack, Jr. in today's AAC Championship game against Memphis State ........ and got one.

Got to win the first one first.

Teams declare themselves champion, and they did.  There is no D1 football champ according to the NCAA.

Central Florida was dealt a big blow when they lost their Archie Griffin Award winner and 2-time AAC Player of the Year quarterback McKenzie Milton to an injury on the last game of the regular season.

With a 2nd-string quarterback they battled valiantly, but came up short of repeating what they did last year against Auburn in the Peach Bowl.

 

40-32, LSU over Central Florida.

Congratulations to LSU, 2018 season Fiesta Bowl champions.

    • I'd be genuinely thrilled to see Bleier at the ASG
    • You're just cherry picking the stats to prove your point.   
    • They're paying more-or-less Harper money for a player of similar age but who has Harper's one peak year almost every year.  Trout is #1 on the all time bb-ref WAR list through his age.  You can go down 50 or 75 spots below Trout and you have 80% of the players there as clear HOFers.   Trout's peers are Cobb, Mantle, Hornsby, ARod, Foxx, Ott, Griffey Jr, Speaker, Vaughn, Aaron, Frank... If you're not willing to pay going rates for Mike Trout, you would have also been willing to let any of those players walk because they were too risky.   Here's a list of players whose entire careers were worth less than Trout has been so far: Winfield, Ashburn, Billy Williams, Sliding Billy Hamilton, Lou Boudreau, Home Run Baker, Jesse Burkett, Harmon Killebrew, Mike Piazza, Vlad, Yogi, Hank Greenberg, Willie Stargell, Bill Dickey, Joe Medwick, Willie Keeler, George Sisler, Jimmy Collins, Elmer Flick.  There are nine Hall of Famers whose entire careers were worth less than half of Mike Trout's first eight seasons.
    • I love all the information available, especially on prospects. There's a great wealth of knowledge among everyone who contributes, and I appreciate that.
    • I agree with you that Beane and Moneyball was really influential...but it only sorta', kinda' worked.  2002 Stats: Hudson 238 IP ERA+145 Zito 229 IP ERA+ 158 Mulder 207 IP ERA+125 Lidle 192IP ERA+112 Zito and Mulder were first round draft picks. I didn't read the book, but I loved the movie. But I think the truth is that analytics had way, way, way less to do with the success of those teams than the hype would lead some to believe. If so, then the influence of the book on the spread of analytics may be more to do with hype and spin than an actual analysis of the effects of analytics. I find that fun.  It will be interesting to see how analytics are viewed in ten to fifteen years. I think in some cases the "success" of analytics on team wins could be luck much like how some scouts back in the day made a name for themselves by signing a player that turned out to be a great player. A big part of that is getting lucky with injuries, etc. I wonder if the same thing might be happening with some of the models that supposedly said pick player A over player B in a draft, etc. Only time will tell and maybe not even then (pretty soon everybody will be doing pretty much the same thing with analytics and there may be no relative advantages as it becomes part of the status quo).   
    • At least. The NFL cap is also complicated in that signing bonuses are prorated for each year of the contract (e.g. $20M bonus on a 4 year contract counts for $5M each year) and those prorated things come due right away when a player is traded or cut. So for example Joe Flacco was traded and the Ravens aren't paying him anything this year but he still counts $16M against the Ravens' cap this year. But also they just signed Earl Thomas, he'll get a $20M signing bonus and a $2M salary this year but he only counts $7M against the cap. Maybe it all sort of evens out but who knows.
    • No one cares.  Except us.  And we're not surprised.
