What To Tell Anyone Who Says The UCF Knights Aren’t The National Champions
NATIONAL CHAMPS BABY! Never in my life, nor my son’s life, nor his son’s life, nor the lives of the
many handsome, brilliant Burns boys who will follow, until the Earth is demolished by a Vogon fleet, did I believe this day would come. The UCF Knights are the college football National Champions. This is not a self-proclaimed title. This is mother-f*cking fact. By finishing as the No. 1 team in the NCAA-recognized Colley Matrix, UCF has a claim to the National Championship, whether Nick Saban likes it or not. And Alabama’s coach already offered a smug faux-approval of UCF’s claim — “Doesn’t mean anything to anybody but them” — but do we really expect anything more from the NFL failure who eventually became the most powerful man in the heinously corrupt college football corporation? Hell, I’m shocked he knows who or what UCF is. Following his lead, there have expectedly been many, many championship truthers and trolls who would try to steal this from us. Legions of angry Alabama fans, still basking in the afterglow of what was undoubtedly one of the worst “national championship” games in college football history (Georgia choked against a true freshman, and the Tide played just well enough to take advantage), have spent more time taking dumps on UCF than they have learning how to pronounce their new quarterback’s name. Mouth-breathing keyboard mashers with the reading comprehension of toddlers refuse to accept that a little directional school full of nobodies in the heart of Mickey Mouse country could ever even take the field against the school considered by many to be the NFL’s biggest farm system. (Don’t bother reminding them what UCF’s all-time record is against Bama.) Beyond them, UCF is also being dragged by the always-pathetic SEC homers (fans, many in Gainesville, who believe conference glory is shared like television revenue), Miami fans who are mad we’re not all talking about how the U is back (most of them went to UCF), and the old guard media elite, like PAWWWWWWWWWL Finebaum, who is paid to bloviate about the SEC’s glory and would literally evaporate into a cloud of bald dust if he had to acknowledge that a non-SEC team is better than his beloved Tide. There are even so-called UCF fans who claim to be embarrassed by how the nation’s best athletic director, Danny White, is overdoing the celebration, despite the FACT that UCF has a legitimate claim to the title. You know all of these people well, because they’re replying to everything you post on Facebook. They use empty rhetoric and baseless trash talk to demean this accomplishment. I’ve even seen people dropping insults on pictures of children at UCF’s Disney parade. They’re your friends, family members, significant others, and total strangers. Simply put: They’re assholes. But this is what comes with being the champs, and what matters is that we know the truth.
With four first place votes in the final Top 25 AP Poll, UCF would have still kept the debate going. This is the first season of the CFP Cartel that does not have a unanimous No. 1 team in the AP ranking. But with the Colley Matrix, this isn’t just us stirring the pot. This is history. This is FACT. Still, it won’t silence the critics and trolls, nor will it stop SEC gremlins and orcs from pausing hour two of First Take to comment (in all-caps, likely) on a UCF Football Facebook post about how the Knights should play a tougher schedule, as if that’s something we can control. (Hell, if P5 officials had their way, they’d completely cut the G5 off, and there are G5 leaders who already want to roll over and die and allow that, leaving the corporation to continue hogging all the cash.) In the coming weeks, months, and maybe even years, there will be more and more people telling you and your UCF Knights why this championship is fake news. They will be arrogant and mean, and they will be unwavering. Nothing you can say will change their minds, even if our claim is as real as I4 traffic. So, as I have said since the clock expired at the Peach Bowl, the solution is simple. Do not argue. Do not feed the trolls. Simply tell them the truth and repeat the three sweetest words my ears have ever heard: National champs, baby.
