If a team like UCF were to be considered for the playoffs, they would have to have a much better resume in my opinion.
To be real, people saying there's no way in hell is the number 1 reason for everything to be decided on the field. There are plenty of instances where people said beforehand there's no way in hell, and afterwards were saying Holy Sh*t, they're really good!

Our very own men's basketball Final Four run is a prime example of this.

This whole thing isn't about whether they can actually beat any of the playoff teams. Its about the fact that they've done every single thing in their power to earn the chance to play for the title and were denied.

Maybe they should join a stronger conference if they want to make the playoffs? They have a good team but I doubt they would be undefeated if they played in any major conference.

I've read and listened to a lot of the people saying UCF should have gotten a chance and TBH, I've yet to hear one single reason that holds water.

Yep...in the end, they are a Cinderella team that played a weak schedule.

If all the top teams had 2-3 losses, they'd have a claim, but that didn't happen.

But they are a Top 10 team, just not Top 4 or 5.

Alabama-Georgia is about as interesting to me as a UK basketball intrasquad game.
UCF would get the brakes beat off of them by the top four playoffs teams, and even ohio state.

I really wonder why they didn't get to play the #5 Ohio State then.... they couldn't say anything if they were beat. The system we have is just too damn rigid... and we even have a committee for stuff...

They beat a top 10 team that beat both the teams in the final. No way you could say that with certainty. College football is.the only sport where we have doubt.

We were a Cinderella in basketball last year that ended up top 4. Shocking how you guys can be so blind.

Actually, in bigtime football there is less of a chance of a Cinderella story.

Major upsets in the tourney are much more common in basketball and even baseball than in football.

The hilarious thing is that in 5 years, no one outside of UCF will even remember them from this season.

Does anybody really believe UCF was one of the four best college football teams in 2017 and should have been in the college football playoff's?

Just because UCF is undefeated means nothing. The playoff selection committee selects the four best teams for the playoff's, and being undefeated in a third world conference isn't going to get you in the discussion with any sane individual, which includes the selection committee.

You guys keep arguing the wrong point. The point is that the sport is broken when an undefeated team has no chance to be in the playoffs and continue their season. Especially when they beat the team that beat both teams in the finals

They beat Auburn on a neutral field, Bama and UGA lost at Jordan Hare. UGA also housed Auburn on the same neutral field UCF beat Aubue. Furthermore Clemson beat Auburn and then got housed by Bama. This whole ucf deserves to be in playoff/national champion Bc they bear Auburn is F#cking stupid. If beating Auburj means you get in playoffs then LSU also got snubbed. On top of that ucf is technically did not win all thier games this year, they refused to reschedule GTech game.

Still arguing the wrong point, when you have to bring up nuetral fields and this and that it's stupid. Only sport in the world where you don't lose a game and your season ends without a chance to win anything. I could care less and have no reason to side with UCF..just had to comment because of how short sighted the opinions have been on this thread.

Auburn just lost The SEC championship and a shot at the national championship.
They did not give 2 SHLts about that bowl game.

But, If Clemson can still claim a MNC after being caught with the worst cheating scandal in NCAA history to that date, Then UCF certainly can claim one by doing things the right way.

No, UCF should not be #4 or #5, but they should be higher than you.

Like you, they played a weak schedule.

Like you, their signature win was against Auburn.

Unlike you, they did not get to play Auburn at home with their best player out.

Unlike you, they did not lose to one of their cupcake opponents.

Unlike you, they did not have a one-sided loss. Or a loss, period.

Undefeated versus a two loss team. No way you should be higher than UCF.

Nobody remembering is why it’s a good idea to claim a national title. Bama has claimed multiple bunk national titles and claims to have 16 or 17 when the real number is something like 12. I think Auburn or Ole Miss retroactively clamimed a natty in the 50s as well. Folks aren’t up in arms about hose teams claiming fake NCs which is why I thinking claiming this title is a good idea for UCF.

Put up a banner. Give them rings. Get the guys back together and honor the team every 10 yrs.

At one point you could. The year UNC backed out on us media was reporting that they had the ability to decline.

No. The point is that it is up to the team to prove that they are worthy by not only winning, but by playing a tough schedule.

The system is great as is.
