Central Florida finished the season as the only FBS program to go undefeated (13-0), topping Auburn 34-27 in the Peach Bowl on New Year's Day.

And then things started to get interesting.

ESPN’s The Dan LeBatard Show with Stugotz had proclaimed the Knights their "personal" National Champions on multiple occasions, had UCF won, leading up to the Peach Bowl. When they returned to work on Tuesday, they continued the movement.

UCF ultimately embraced it and changed its Twitter handle to "2017 National Champions" late on Tuesday.

Then the trolls come out with pitchforks.

Danny White is the Central Florida Athletics Director, and he fired right back with his response.

Based on this link, Scott Frost receives a $200,000 bonus for winning a national championship at UCF. This is on top of the $75,000 he received for winning the AAC title before accepting the Nebraska job.
