Big 12 or not, UCF and USF should play every year | Commentary

To paraphrase that great college football commentator Winston Churchill, “It’s not about doing your best; it’s about doing what is necessary.”

After what we saw on Friday, let us hope UCF athletic director Terry Mohajir and USF athletic director Michael Kelly heed Sir Winston’s words in preserving the rivalry between their two schools even after UCF moves up to the Big 12.

Sadly, UCF’s thrilling, chilling, heart-pounding, hair-raising 17-13 victory over USF Friday at the Bounce House will likely be the final Knights-Bulls game in Orlando for the foreseeable future. No, this game didn’t have the meaning or the magnitude it’s had in the past, but it still had the passion and animosity.
