Where have all the cowboys gone?

I’m not Dottavio. I’m not hey you, or what?- either. I’m Coach Dottavio or Mr. Dottavio. I’ve earned that right. I have worked to get a title.

UCF and Baylor: Fateful rise of two programs that once played a great game

On January 1st of 2014 UCF and Baylor met in the Fiesta Bowl to cap off two fantastic seasons from perennial after-thought programs. The University of Central Florida needed to overcome multiple controversies on their way to a #15 overall ranking while Baylor’s controversies had yet to come to light on the way to a #6 ranking.
