'It can be a monster': Why North Texas could be the next UCF

 

DENTON, Texas – UCF has won 25 consecutive games, will appear in back-to-back New Year’s Six Bowls and has won three outright league titles with three different coaches in the last six years. Along the way, UCF has emerged as the model for teams outside of college football’s Power Five that want to grow into a juggernaut. The key ingredients have been exploiting a big television market, a rich local recruiting talent pool and a massive student body.

So who could follow that model and emerge as the next generation’s mid-major darling? The answer may be North Texas, which has transformed from a school everyone passed on Interstate 35, north of Dallas, to a place that’s forcing the college football world to stop and pay attention.

There are many big schools in major recruiting markets. That's not what made UCF successful.  What matters is the financial and policy support from the administration of the university to make it happen.  That's the hard part. 

Seems like we have that
