From Junior to Bianchi:
We sometimes chuckle and roll our eyes at some of the outlandish statements that come from the mouth of FAU coach Lane Kiffin, but in this case, the Lane Train is absolutely correct when he says UCF belongs in the SEC.
Actually, after watching some SEC teams embarrass themselves in Week 1 of the college football season, UCF probably belongs at the top of the SEC — just below Alabama and Georgia and right there with Florida, Auburn and LSU.
During a teleconference with reporters earlier this week, Kiffin talked about this week’s game against UCF and playing the Knights last season when they handed the Owls a 56-36 loss. Before last year’s game, Kiffin recalled an on-field conversation he had with UCF coach Josh Heupel.
“I remember talking to Coach [Heupel] and I was like, ‘You guys look like an SEC team over there,’” remembered Kiffin…
One day, Gus Malzahn needs to pay, and pay dearly, for the sin of having Auburn not show up for a bowl game.
