In totality over the last Decade their level of accomplishment far exceeds

the state of North Carolina. UCF has two BCS Bowl games to their credit the Fiesta and the Peach both wins while only Wake has played in one for our state and lost. They have finished ranked #10 and #6 in the last 5 years which is hands down better than anything in the State of NC. They have peaks and valleys and when they crap the bed they totally crap the bed but their overall trajectory as a program far exceeds anything we have done. Our dream season in 2014 when we were the first team from a G5 Conference to ever be ranked in the playoff poll spiraled down the toilet and a cherry put on top in the last home game when UCF beat us on a hail mary pass after we forgot how to add and subtract with the play clock.
UCF has won 5 Conference Championships in the last 10 years to our 2 and Wake has 1. UNC and NCST of course have not won an ACC Championship since 1979 for NCST and 1980 for UNC. We can speculate all day but UNC, Wake and Duke will always be Basketball schools so I have no doubt that UCF would pass them quickly if they were in the ACC. NCST is too obsessed with competing with older brother UNC to not realize the best thing they could do would be to beg the SEC to put their footprint in North Carolina and move their program forward as a Football school and give up the ghost of Jim Valvano when it comes to hoops.

I have disliked UCF as much as the next ECU fan over the last decade and enjoy beating them. I circle that game on the calendar every year as one I want to go as they are who we need to measure ourselves against more than the never ending focus on our ACC neighbors.
