Give Danny White credit for continuing to beat that drum for UCF.
In an email exchange between UCF athletics director Danny White and Florida Gators athletics director Scott Stricklin, White not only lobbies for Stricklin to schedule a neutral site game with the Gators, but encourages Stricklin — a member of the College Football Playoff Committee — to help him fix a “broken” system.
The Orlando Sentinel obtained the email exchange between White and Stricklin via a public records request regarding scheduling a UF-UCF series.
There’s a lot going on there. Allow Allen Kenney to summarize.
That’s all nice, but there is the matter of leverage. When it comes to getting Florida to schedule UCF as a peer program, White doesn’t really have any. If this is more about public shaming the P5 into playoff expansion, well, fine, but that’s not an issue for Scott Stricklin, rather for Greg Sankey.
It’ll be interesting to see where White goes next, based on how the bowl game against LSU goes.
