Did Scott Frost take signing day swipe at USF?



Maybe it's just us, reading too deeply into something. Chances are, we're transforming a benign observation into verbal kindling for a rivalry that's already flammable.

Or perhaps our observation is on the mark, and new UCF coach Scott Frost was taking a swipe -- subconsciously or not -- at his rivals down the interstate.

While Bulls coaches shamelessly reveled in their signing day success Wednesday, when a video snippet of them dancing in their war room surfaced on social media, Frost indicated in his signing day press conference such animation isn't his style.

Check out the 16:50 mark of this video from Frost's presser, where he addresses his more subdued signing day philosophy.

"Sorry guys, you're not gonna have a video camera in our office watching us celebrate if a kid commits or doesn't commit," he says, "because we're gonna go to battle with whatever kids want to be here, and want kids that want to be a part of this program."

In a follow-up question, Frost, who signed 20 recruits on Wednesday, was asked why he doesn't care for the whole spectacle of signing day.

"I think just too much is made of it," he says.

"If you probably went back and looked for five years, a lot of the people that coaches are on TV celebrating about probably never played one down of college football. There's a lot more that goes into it than that. We're certainly excited to add talented people to our organization, and we're gonna get as excited as anybody and have as much fun with it as anybody. But signing day isn't gonna win you games."
