Fun fact: Shaquill and Shaquem Griffin constitute one of three sets of twins on UCF’s roster. After spending three years on the sidelines watching older brother Shaquill work his way up through the ranks of the UCF secondary, Shaquem—a redshirt junior and the younger of the two by 16 seconds—now joins his brother on the field as a starting linebacker for the Knights in the duo’s fourth season. He is the team’s third-leading tackler at the moment with 19 total stops, 2.5 coming for a loss, and does so without his left hand, which he lost to amputation at the age of four after being diagnosed with amniotic band syndrome. I highly suggest you take a few minutes to read The Orlando Sentinel’s feature on the Griffin brothers, as these seem to be two genuinely good football brothers—ya know, the kind that would get fat with one another.


Can They Make The Playoff?

As much as it pains me to say it, the No. 1 team in both the nation and our hearts will not be playoff-bound come January. Already, the Knights have improved on last year’s 0-12 campaign, claiming a Week 1 victory against South Carolina State and shattering dreams of a repeat winless No. 1. The shellacking Central Florida took against Michigan was to be expected. But this past weekend’s game against Maryland showed me UCF may not be completely lost. After all, if you fumble the ball six times and still take a team to double-overtime, something’s working, right? (Maryland probably just sucks.)


Is The Coach A Dick?

Scott Frost’s got jokes.

He’s most likely a dick.
