Default For all the UCF crybabies....

If you want to bitch about the playoff system, save your breath. Instead bitch at your AD for scheduling the likes of Maine, Maryland and Georgia Tech (cancelled) as your OOC games. While the power 5 recognized the trend and began to schedule more quality OOC opponents to strengthen the resumes of their teams...the AD for UCF didn't. One game does not a season make.

In bowl season, it seems that teams with the most emotional motivation normally play the best. The inverse is true as well - if you ended your season on a low-note and didn't get to where you've been aiming for all season, you feel a little let down and don't care as much about the last game. This happened to be the perfect storm of both.

They came out to prove a point and yeah, they're good. Not natty champs for cruising through 12 games and putting a solid performance together in a game they had a month to prepare for though.

EDIT: If the system doesn't change, we should all take a note from Bama and UCF and start playing cupcakes again to inflate records.

A 7 point win does not constitute a whipping. Furthermore Auburn beat themselves, thanks to 3 turnovers.

Not directed at you personally, it's just that I've seen this sentiment a lot.
People want to downplay Alabama's schedule but they forget all of the "Hype" for the Alabama vs., Florida State game. It was billed as the big game to open the season.

FSU was a top 5 team. That, along with the rest of their SEC Schedule was plenty tough enough.

Honest question since I don't know - did Alabama have to accept a bid to the chick-fil-a kickoff game since it's always two SEC vs. ACC games? Should they get credit for scheduling the opponent, or were they obligated to play by the SEC partnership in that game?

I'm fine with UCF claiming a Natty. Teams have claimed a natty for less in the past. Bama claims '73, b/c of the Coaches Poll (that was used before the Sugar Bowl against an undefeated Notre Dame team.) Notre Dame beat Bama in the Sugar Bowl, but Bama still claims that year's natty. So does Notre Dame.

So before their win over Auburn, they were ranked 84th. The win rocketed them up to 17th, but the 4 who did rate the CFP all have top 5 OOC SOSs......

Default Re: For all the UCF crybabies....

I have an idea that will solve this...

Keep the same 4 team playoff. However, if after the end of the year there remains an undefeated team in a Div-1 conference, make them play the 4th ranked seed before the playoff. In this wild card game, the winner moves forward. This lets the 4th ranked team get beat up with the extra wild card game and it would not be active every year, only if someone like UCF went undefeated.

What if there were 2 undefeated G5 teams? Take the higher ranking or SOS?

One option would be to make the highest ranking undefeated play #4 and the lowest ranking undefeated play #3... in two wild card games.

They should give credit to winning a conference championship and being the best non-Power Five team, but no automatic bid.

If you put So Cal and UCF in an 8 team playoff, you would have to leave out one of the B1G wild cards schools, Wisky or Penn State. Both teams were better, IMO, than So Cal or UCF.

I thought that before the B1G annihilated the opposition in the bowl games. And one of those victims was So Cal.

100% this. UCF never had a chance to compete for a national championship. They won everything they were given the opportunity to win. This is just a big middle finger to the committee, which I think is hilarious

I dislike this idea. This basically gives P5 conferences equal opportunity and they aren't equal. I much prefer an option that picks up any straggling undefeated teams.

Congrats to UCF on a great season.

You would have gotten clobbered if you were in the Top 4.

Enjoy it for what it is....13-0. No one can take it away from you.
