Classic malzahn 🤦🏽 ucf shoulda won that game... I'm glad he left Auburn WAR EAGLE 🦅


yesacabbagez

I said before the year, UCF really has like 4 games that will define the year. It was Boise, Louisville, Cincinnati and Memphis. UCF SHOULD be favored in the other 8 and in general have the better team. While Louisville wasn't great last year, the fact remains they simply were going to have better talent on the field than UCF. It's why a P5 game is usually much tougher for G5s regardless of the opponent. Despite how it went I was actually pleased with the defense. Yes they had bad drives, but the defense did more than enough to win that game. They held Louisville to a 40% 3rd down conversion rate and force 5 punts, 2 ToD and an interception. UCF can't convert 20% of your third downs and expect to win games.

Disrespect to the ponies


Several_Nobody4241

That was a helluva finish!


AJ_Grey

I feel like Nastrodamus predicted this. At the New City he is thoughtfil to condemn; the bird of prey offers himself to the gods. After victory he pardons his captives. At Cremona and Mantua great hardships will be suffered.


Sure_Wonder4029

It was Quasimodo who predicted it


Bodie011

You’re telling me you never pondered that? You have the hunchback of UCF, you also have the quarterback and halfback of UCF.


Gray09

Slander if ya ask me.


gmills87

I want it on the record that i picked us on the reddit pole prior to kick and it didn't show up.


Tunarice2

1. Run the football like a normal team when you're right next to the field goal range 2. Throw an easy pass and take no risks 3. Bullet shot near double coverage and get the unluckiest "only God" bounce ever. One of these is not like the other


yesacabbagez

Whehter or not they should have run, the throw was good. The guy was open. The WR absolutely cannot try to make a sideways one armed catch in that situation. You either need to fucking catch it or keep it down. Johnson tried to be cute and knocked the ball in the air.


loganwadams

gus malzahn just got gus malzahn’d


WarGeagle1

The Gus Bus just ran over the Gus Bus


loganwadams

i do not miss that man


WarGeagle1

Yeah watching boneheaded play calling like that shows why we had to move on. The jury is still out on Harsin, but the on field production has been good so far.


loganwadams

harsin curses. he’s already cooler than gus so i’m on the harsin train.


WarGeagle1

Plus his daughters are t h i c c c c

Wut


smgrubbs1

Cincinnati will succeed (and go to CFP) where we have failed XCOM reference


reddituseranyonymous

You're just a Group of 5 school, play better teams, join a better Conference, and other random P5 bullshit


StrykerBandit

We needed to win for that to happen.


smgrubbs1

I mean, if Cincinnati beats ND they are probably 5


StrykerBandit

As much as it pains me to say it, I hope you do. I think you can. It has to be a flawless game though.


Foxx_Mulderp

Lol nope


GoblinTradingGuide

The thing is that ND is probably trash because they only beat us by 3 points in OT, and by the end of the season a win over ND probably won’t mean shit.


Foxx_Mulderp

Agreed


GoblinTradingGuide

The thing is that ND is probably trash because they only beat us by 3 points in Ot


Foxx_Mulderp

Agree


TakeSomeFreeHoney

Welcome to YOUR knightmare, UCF. THIS is what we hated about Gus. Why call the exact same play after the timeout? Why a short pass to end the game instead of taking a shot at a Hail Mary? Why lateral when it has a very low rate of success? Gus got out coached at the end and he always will. Good riddance! Wish y’all the best though.


yesacabbagez

Yea it might not be great, but Heupel would have lost that game but a lot more. Deep balls weren't open because Louisville kept safeties back. Heupel would have kept bombing it downfield. With Heupel we lose like 42-14. Id' rather the offense at least be able to move when the defense is doing the one thing they can to stop you from doing the one thing you can do. There is also the aspect that with Heupel we would never recruit well enough to win a game like that regularly. Malzahn can have a lot longer leash if he improves the overall talent level of the team. UCF isn't like Auburn where any jackass is going to be a top 20 recruiting class.


jawjanole

Wat


willynillee

I’m hating this bus ride already and we just got out of the driveway


The_Corn_Whisperer

Birds with teeth are the superior form


shane-parks

I don't believe that exists in nature.


The_Corn_Whisperer

It’s a birds ultimate form


deliciouscrab

I wasn't sure the first time you said it, but I'm a sucker for repetition. Hit me again.


Andrew_The_Fanboy

It sounds like a shoulder issue on the UCF broadcast. He got carted off.


siblingofMM

Fucking embarrassing


wowthisguyoverhere

With all due respect, Ucf fans need to chill. It wasn't even a conference game and you weren't going to play for a natty.


StrykerBandit

You can fuck right off with that attitude. Nothing wrong with being passionate and wanting your team to win.


Preciousbaggins25

Damn bud. Have a cold one


reddituseranyonymous

With all due respect: who are you?


jawjanole

Chill


wowthisguyoverhere

Almost the same guy as you


reddituseranyonymous

But people talk about us. I've never even heard of you. Edit: My how the turns have tabled


secalane

He’s obviously that guy over there. Yeesh.


baronz3r

Cmon man, its football, theres only twelve games a season. After a long off season and a weird 2020. Dont get on people for getting into a game.


wowthisguyoverhere

Not trying to get on people for getting into a game. I will be doing the same thing tomorrow night when georgia is most likely up by 28+ points. Just can't believe some of the shit I'm reading. And I said with all due respect!!!


baronz3r

With all due respect, dont.


Aliensfear

You have to win every game when you're a G5 (we still are for a few years) or it just looks bad.


mechapoitier

Yeah all these people with flairs that can lose two games the first half of the season and still be in the top 10 don’t know the devastation of a single score loss when “you weren’t going to the CFP even if you went undefeated.”


Tapsen

Yea these people don't know the struggle. But hey, B12, we'll be there


The_Corn_Whisperer

Did we say UCF? we meant BSU sorry


LiteHedded

Cart coming out for dg


Thecougarfan

Ouch


ladywazowski

Hope he’s ok. The loss is whatever but I don’t like seeing anyone get hurt


Glass_Apricot

You guys had way to many injuries this game. Sorry.


LiteHedded

Someone said nine starters. Woof


ladywazowski

Bless. Just a game at the end of the day I’m optimistic about Trevor in Jax (that’s my NFL home team). Hope he gets the supporting cast (and experience) he deserves

HyperPlasma

We’re shit


BF3FAN1

No we aren’t stfu


Thecougarfan

That was a great game.


SouthTriceJack

In south beach everyone was watching that pick six


JB92103

What happened to Gabriel though? Did he get up?


LiteHedded

Cart coming out


JB92103

Damn


futuristanon

Looked like a collarbone.


DanMarinoNoDeflates

Our passing game was atrocious.


WarGeagle1

That’s the Gus Experience.


HyperPlasma

If Dillon is injured it would be the worst way to ever lose a game


Bobby-Samsonite

Nice for the coach to say hi to his Mom and Dad.


ConfusedCauchy

Shouting out mom and dad like this is his first TV appearance


JoeyVottoBangs

Go to bed UCF fans


StrykerBandit

I can't.


SkyPhan

Lol you literally have no flair. Get out of this subreddit


UofLForTheWin

First things first: I really hope Gabriel is okay, injuries suck, and yall are a fantastic team. Secondly: What a fantastic game! Ya'll are fun to watch, UCF. I mean it was incredibly stressful, but my God what a game. And finally: Lets goooooooo! We needed this win so badly. We needed this as a fanbase and as a team. What a fucking win and what a fucking game. God damn did we need this


MiLeSmAn45

You guys deserve to win with a qb limping the whole 4th quarter.. gg Now beer or whiskey. Wait I think I know the answer to that already.


bryan_502

Bourbon is the answer. Always.


MiLeSmAn45

Was hoping for OT tho


SkyPhan

Gg Louisville bro! Definitely earned that win


scabcoat

Your QB stepped up today.


Tapsen

We needed that 2013 win, good game!


reddituseranyonymous

We did not play well and have a bunch of injuries. Your team definitely played better. Congrats on the win. Yall definitely earned that one


Hithigon

Cheers, man. Enjoy a beverage.


StoopSign

Man once the first forward lateral happens a player should boot the hell out of the ball out of frustration so it can be recovered in the endzone for a TD that would get called bsck. Every book should offer this as the last play at +10000


RAMDownloader

… so are we good? Or does transitive theory not apply here


gmills87

if we're in the mix..., you're never gonna get the favorable transition. More likely the narrative is now that all 3 of us stink.


reddituseranyonymous

Week 2....not enough data.


RAMDownloader

This is week 3 tho, no?


reddituseranyonymous

Point still stands


Glass_Apricot

Yes, you have a decent defense. Versus Oklahoma tier last year. Darkhorse for the SEC west right now.


StrykerBandit

Well we got out coached so I don't know if you're good or not. Maybe.


turtle_flu

Louisville coach could have a second career as an auctioneer.


bigbuckalex

Well that sucks


iSkiBC

I don't understand why UCF doesn't run it after the INT. They need like 5-10 yards for a field goal. They had been running all over Louisville the previous scores.


StrykerBandit

Said the same. You either win or it goes into overtime. We lost that one. Louisville didn't win it.


VAGentleman05

We may be seeing why Gus got the boot from Auburn.


WarGeagle1

It’s odd, you’d think a coach like Gus that likes to run the ball wouldn’t call a quick slants like that


hendrix67

After the fake punt was the bigger what if. They were gashing them, had time, and went with three straight passes to go 3 and out.


ShelJuicebox

Same. What the FUCK


Squeezeboner

gus^gus^gus^gus^gus^gus


kirkherbstreit69

Congrats Louisville on defeating the defending national champions


reddituseranyonymous

Hey 2017 called. They want their joke back


BucketsMcAlister

We claimed a national championship in 2020? Weird. I didn’t see that.


jellothrow

This joke is 3 years late


kirkherbstreit69

I would hardly call it a joke, I'm a hack lol


JesusWantsYouToKnow

This man is very Kentucky. I don't know what I expected


gmills87

Satt? He's an NC/Appalachian mountain boy through and through


bobsled_time

Satterfield?


TimeFourChanges

Colonel Sanders


TedioreTwo

"God is good" not to UCF lmao


SKS81

In fairness, they get to go back to Sunny Florida and we know how weather is gonna be here in Kentucky in a week or two...


deliciouscrab

Sunny Florida isn't all it's cracked up to be. (Although the weather's finally breaking a little here.)


Rambler33

God literally stepped in and said "not today satan."


JunkyardAndMutt

“First of all, I want to thank the Lord Jesus for blessing my efforts and smiting my enemies. They should have prayed harder, because clearly their faith has borne no fruit.”


Grade-AMasterpiece

Good work, Gus lol.


Bobby-Samsonite

the game is not over????? ....Refs:.... the game is over.


NJ_Mets_Fan

i hate my life and i want to die


yourmomentofzen464

Well, it’s been fun having an aneurysm with you all. Until next time.


lukedmpeak

LOL satterfield shouting out his mom and dad like he's a player


Lawcoop

You would think the dude has been on tv before with that mom and dad shout out lol


MAVanAllenOShea

Satterfield is decidedly weird


WrecklessFenderRoads

Three games in twelve days is some Bishop Sycamore stuff


The_Lone_Couier

How the fuck is DB hurt


bobsled_time

That looked like a collarbone on a completely futile play. Ouch.


You_Crazy

“God is good yall. I wanna thank God for crushing the dreams of UCF tonight for they are not good and righteous” -Scott Satterfield.


gbrownstrat

He clearly cared about who won this game. Jk


ThugUnicorn845

Chuck and pray!


CokeZ3ro

Cardinals are my friend now


curlyshea

Birds with teeth unite


barnyard080

ESPN and Louisville acting as if Louisville just knocked off Alabama


NobleNoob

It was a great game and we’ve been struggling.


COMMENTASIPLEASE

We thought we were ass let us have this


Abush9527

yeah this game just bought satterfield at least a few more weeks, if not the rest of the season


Foxx_Mulderp

beating UCF means you're not?


sonofblackbird

UCF has won as many games against Georgia as Georgia has against UCF. Stfu.


Foxx_Mulderp

Salty lmao


COMMENTASIPLEASE

Not as much as we thought


dude_logman

Pain.


Foxx_Mulderp

Why are they rushing the field?


boomersooner222

Why not


Foxx_Mulderp

Beating an unranked team at home perhaps


TheSpanishArmada

You see us last year? You see us weeks 1 and 2? Still shouldn’t rush. But it’s been a dark stretch in our football program and our AD in general the last half decade.


MarineAquarist

Don’t know if people realize how badly our fans needed this.


TheSpanishArmada

First time feeling happy about Louisville sports in… way too long.


bettersteve

Ending of this game was 50 shades of cray. Double bonk interceptions wowza


Practical-Rhubarb

I don't think whatever gods there are have any interest in your team.


Llama_Leaping_Larry

How am I supposed to watch the MD-Illi game after this??


chindiroots

With booze. That's my plan.


TimeFourChanges

Kinda like watching a movie that's so bad that it's good


MiddyMn

I can't help but laugh just seeing Gabriel clearly hurt laying on the field and everyone is just running out there and shaking hands


scabcoat

I was concerned. Not sure what's funny about a student athlete getting hurt.


MiddyMn

Well chuckling in a sense of shock and disbelief that no one did anything to get him off the field first


clone162

Ah fuck man I just can't with this team


dhc96

Three games in twelve days??? That seems wild.


TheSpanishArmada

Monday game Week 1, Saturday game Week 2, Friday game Week 3. Wasn’t an ideal schedule, for sure.


dhc96

Ya it does seem a little squished.


bobsled_time

Most teams play 3 games in 14 days if you start the count on gameday...so fairly normal I'd say.


dhc96

Hmm guess it just sounds impressive when you hear it without thinking hahahah


CelebrateGoodObama

Banger. Man I love football


Menumber1

If Gabriel's season is over on that last play I don't even know what to say. He was holding his shoulder/collarbone.


insertweirdassname

Wow my god that was amazing


Graym

Of course he throws his 20th checkdown pass in a hail mary situation.


BaBaBaBanshee

Louisville should score 30+ points more


just_a_handle

Instant classic


xmjm424

"What the fuck, God?" - UCF


TedioreTwo

Lmfao


UCFJed

DG getting hurt on a basically useless play describes this game


Ok-Broccoli-4886

Gus needs to be fired asap


MaverickTGG

3 whole games and you feel like you’ve seen enough huh


Most_Shallot8960

Good job Louisville, hell of a game


avsfan9

Total ESPN move to go straight to the interview while a kid is still laying on the field.


dontdrinkonmondays

What? Will he not get medical attention because a reporter is asking boilerplate questions thirty yards away?


Spare_Contract1780

You want a commercial break?


NealBrownsSled

I mean. As opposed to doing what?


swim_kick

Going full Joe Rogan and interviewing DG as he's writhing in pain.


NealBrownsSled

I'll give Rogan some credit when he did it to McGregor after his last fight. Dude was begging for it lol


avsfan9

You answered your own question.


NealBrownsSled

Like keep the camera on the injured player? Cut to the booth and skip the interviews? I genuinely don't know what you expect them to do differently that would be reasonable and more tasteful.


BucketsMcAlister

Why the fuck did they throw the ball after the interception? Run it and get to field goal range. Stupid play.


DanMarinoNoDeflates

Seriously, we were like one decent run from a field goal.


shmilling

Damn Gabriel is down still


9liners

I’d like to say you’re welcome to everyone that I went to pee at a crucial moment and caused the interception…
