Latavius Murray


How far has Syracuse fallen when UCF out recruits Syracuse. Latavius Murray committed to UCF, wow. I am speechless, I pretty much new Syracuse was not going to get this guy but, i never thought that he would go to a school like UCF. Rumors has it,O'Leary promised him a shot at running back and that is why he made the commitment. What is yet to be seen is if he can play RB. I tell you one thing, with the state of the Syracuse's Running game, i would have offered him any position on the field. Latavius Murray is a talented athlete who could play anywhere. I personally thing that he is better suited as a linebacker but that is my own opinion. Well there goes another local prospect, only this time we lost him to a mediocre Florida team. What confuses me is why these guys are all leaving. If it was me, I would love to be the local kid who walked onto a team and turned it around, be the local hero! That just goes to show you how much of a recruiting genius Grob and staff are!


Ballhype: hype it up!

Can you blame the kid? Look what O'Leary did with Kevin Smith. Smith was looked at as a LB as well but O'Leary promised him a shot at RB and look how that turned out. Smith will probably be the best RB FL has seen since Emmith Smith. Based on outsiders looking in, UCF would be considered a mediocre program...but...have you SEEN what UCF has done to it's athletic programs?? Athletic Village, New Stadium, New Basketball Arena, new baseball/softball stadiums, new everything. The fans have a new and improved tailgating atmosphere that can rival some of the top schools in the country. It's in a huge TV market. Need I go on...
This school was quoted by O'Leary as being a "sleeping giant" when he took the position... That giant is starting to wake up!!! GO KNIGHTS!!!

I am going to agree whole heartedly. Central Florida has done some spectacular things to go from an 0-11 season just 4 years ago in 2004 to what could be a 9-3 year with a solid schedule this year as far as non conference games go. In fact if you look all around CUSA you will see the majority of the teams are investing huge amounts of money in their athletics programs to bring them on the map and within the realms of competition with the rest of the "big named" schools.

Go Knights!

UCF will make a BCS bowl next year, they are 10-3 this year (C-USA Championship) and are playing in the liberty bowl. Syracuse is an awful team, sorry this kid is smart, I can't agree with you. UCF has produced the best running back in the history of college football. Check Kevin Smith break Barry Sanders all-time single-season rushing record Dec 29th on ESPN. Syracuse might be televised once next year...educate yourself about UCF, not only is it the 6th largest university in the US, the campus is beautiful. It's a nice place to goto school let alone be on a top football program. I know in upstate NY it might not be well known but look now so you aren't suprised.

You shouldn't blog about sports. Clearly you don't know sh*t about college football.

I have to agree with most of the UCF fans... the kid made a decsion to be near his dad and play a position he wanted to play. Get over it. Cuse will not be worth going to until their Prez is can'd.

did anyone see him play against the state champs of class D, Walton. Murry carried that team. without him they would be about a .500 team. the kid can do sepcial things. plus cuse blows. id rather go to a winning program than a hometown team where he willnt get televised. i tell ya if i were a running back id want someone blocking for me. doesnt look like he would het much of that at Cuse.

Honestly? UCF is incredible. Check it out sometime; you'll see why he chose UCF over Syracuse. It's not even a contest. Don't be surprised to see more kids wanting to come to UCF. Go Knights!
