I disagree about the speculation on UCF....

I don't see any reason to believe they would be more than mediocre in a P5 league overall (which the majority of teams, by the way). They have had a handful of great seasons but they also have had some bad seasons as well. Certainly they are not a consistent top team in the conference. They went 10-4 and followed that with a 4-8 season. Two years later they go 11-3 and follow that with a 5-7. They then go 10-4, 12-1 and 9-4 and follow those great seasons with 0-12 and 6-7 then their great season last year. All within lower level conferences. During all those seasons, they beat a grand total of 3 ranked out of conference teams (Louisville and Baylor in 2013 and Auburn in 2017).

They have accomplished more than NC teams have of late (that's not saying much). However, their record vs. NC teams in that period (2007-2017) is 5-5 vs. ECU and 1-2 vs. NCSU.

I think calling Duke and Wake Forest historically mediocre is being generous to those programs. :-)
