25 Ways UCF and MAGAs Are Exactly Alike

Based on how they’ve both been acting since 2017, someone’s got to say it.

NCAA Football: Tulsa at Central Florida Mary Holt-USA TODAY Sports

We were going to let this entire week go by without saying anything about C. USF is having a terrible football season, and they barely have enough healthy bodies to function as a team. Everyone accepts that the Bulls are going to get dummied today, if they can even take the field at all.

Until a certain post hit a certain website this week. They came right out and said they ripped off the idea from a post we did way back in 2013. The content wasn’t new, either. Anyone who has read TDS for the last eleven years knows we’re more than willing to criticize our own school when they don’t get it right. Hell, that other site could have researched their whole post by reading our blog! Even the “USF isn’t in South Florida hurr durr” part!

Anyway, if you want to see what a real hate week post looks like... here you go.
