Default Inflated Ego of UCF

UCF is self declaring itself National Champions solely because they finished undefeated. Never mind that the school is in a conference where most teams are as tough as whipped cream, and they only beat 2 ranked opponents.

Yeah - Didn't Auburn do something similar about 4-5 years ago when they were left out of the BCS title game. They all got rings.

Dayum, Spur's Addiction - it was way back in 2004. That was before the run of SEC dominance. Being in the SEC was actually seen as being a detriment then and they were the odd team out among three undefeated teams.

How times have changed....

Edit: Southern Cal beat Oklahoma that year 55-19. Southern Cal later had to vacate the title due to recruiting violations, so there was no champion. So Auburn had a perfect season and there was no champion - might as well claim it.

Agreed. BYU was the worst excuse for a national champion ever. The best team the faced that year was Air Force, who finished 7-4. The total won loss percentage of BYU's opponents that year was only 46%.

As i was coming back into Atlanta I saw a billboard that said Power 6 and it had UCF's logo on it.

I didn't have time to take a picture but it's right near exit 15 on 285.

Meanwhile....

Clemson has been pounding their chest about being #1 in the playoff rankings and talking about being ranked in the Top Four at the end of the season - despite being shown up by Alabama. And bragging about being in the Preseason Top Ten.

Back to normal in Taterville - preseason and recruiting titles will be their claim to fame.

Now that I think about it, I wonder if Dabo is a PR consultant for UCF? The move seems awfully Daboish.

Default Re: Inflated Ego of UCF

So is the non big 5 just supposed to sit here go undefeated and never get a shot at a national title?

BYU proved they deserved the win when they beat the other team in the National Title game. I think BYU dominated those teams that year as well. Put it to 8 teams and an auto bid for the highest ranked non big 5 team, or give the non big 5 their own national championship. Tired of seeing one of their teams go undefeated and only get a big 6 bowl out of it. On a side note, AU beat BAMA that will be heading to the National Title game for a chance to win this year.

IMO, this is the problem with the playoffs...it makes the other bowls not mean a thing. Congrats to UCF for beating Auburn in a meaningless game. The only good things is that this may make them expand the playoffs

They would still get left out at #12. It's obvious the talent level of a conference like the SEC vs the Sunbelt is night and day, but it isn't fair for those teams to sit on their thumbs playing useless bowls with no chance at a trophy. Heck Why not do the same for them with the bowls starting out, give them 6 bowl sites for their playoffs.

UCF won because AU didn't take them seriously, and they played a hell of a game.

I guess letters need to be written to NCAA, talking about this on Cockytalk will solve nothing.

That is fine too! Have a P5 and a G5 national champion...

Heck I would love to see a relegation system similar to the EPL

Default Re: Inflated Ego of UCF

Like many other older ones here... I was around when they made the college football playoff system. The system was never designed to ensure that #1, #2, #3, and #4 played each other. It was designed to make sure that you didn't end up any teams that had no losses... i.e. if you won all your games you should be guaranteed a spot. If you look back historically, there were quite a few years where multiple teams were unbeaten, the only purpose of the college football playoffs was to ensure that didn't happen.

Now, I understand that they don't play in an elite conference... but I still think they were let down by the system.

The CFP was never set up to concern itself with non-Power 5 teams with SOS's in the 70's, regardless of their record.


Also saw an interesting chart that showed the 4 actual CFP teams and then UCF. It went something like this:

Teams vs top 25 Strength of Schedule teams.
Clemson - 6 wins
Bama - 4 wins
UGA - 4 wins
Oklahoma - 3 or 4 wins, can't remember exactly


UCF - 1 win


It also showed their own strength of schedule and UCF is in the 70's..... sorry, but sucky schedules suck.

They certainly were. Beat the top #10 team that beat the two teams playing for title. I would claim the shit out of it and tell the NCAA and the playoff committee to stick it

And the rest of the country laughs at you and tells you to suck it back.

Seriously, the point of being in the NCAA is to win an NCAA Title. Creating your own is childish and wreaks of everyone getting a participation ribbon.

UCF is quickly going from being respected as a tough team to being the laughing stock of college football for this season.
