So, what did you all think of UCF’s performance against Steve Superior’s boys today? They lost 28-25, but they demolished the spread while turning a few heads. Any comments?
Bortles looked pretty good, albeit against a purportedly weak secondary. His line was 25-36 for 358 yards, 2 INTs and 2 TDs. His receivers were outstanding, and this here turkey’s opinion is that Bortles looks even more like a pro prospect. He is a natural in the pocket.
On the rushing side, the Stormster was effectively corralled, able to generate only 68 yards.
UCF got off to a quick start, as they did in our game, discombobulating the Gamecock defense. Spurrier’s halftime adjustments, probably in the form of a large foot up a bunch of asses, worked to prove that there was life in the defense after all, and even missing its star QB, was able to effectively move the ball on offense, winding up with 490 total yards. Once the Cocks got rolling, they were able to put 28 unanswered points on the board, but they got sloppy in the fourth quarter, allowing UCF to get back into the game. An interception of a rushed throw by Bortles ended UCF’s big chance, and the ensuing onside kick failed.
So, whattya think?
