RE: #BoycottCFBPlayoff
I wonder if after all the "Power 6" chest beating Aresco has done if he'll now ask any of the other G5 commissioners to protest with him.

I'd tell him to pound sand until he admits a real Power conference wouldn't have a 2-10 record against the lower 4 G5 leagues.

RE: #BoycottCFBPlayoff
This is so dumb ... and UCF's argument of beating Auburn which beat Georgia and Alabama is just as dumb. Transitive property doesn't work in college football. If UCF is declaring themselves national champions, they and the AAC should and must decline the money they would receive from the CFP. They signed up and are benefiting from the CFP financially and if they don't want to play by their rules, they shouldn't take the money from it.

No matter how good UCF is this SOS gave the committee all the justification they needed/wanted to keep the Knights out. Even playing GT wouldn't have been enough since their AAC schedule featured too many teams with average to bad records this year.

Had Houston gone undefeated with 5 top 25 wins and still been left out then everyone would easily be able to say the system is flawed/corrupt.

But their strength of schedule was poor and they don't deserve to be in the playoff.

Now, before any of you start the "G5 will never get in," remember a few years ago. Houston had it right in front of them. They had already beaten Oklahoma and Louisville and were on their way to the playoff....then crapped the bed the last two weeks.

You can't see UCF beat Auburn and all of a sudden get smart (referring to some tv goons).

Wouldn’t have mattered. The committee is emphasizing SOS for a reason. It automatically eleiminates all the G5. It doesn’t matte4 who a G5 plays in OOC. You will still be stuck with 8 G5 teams for a conference schedule. The UH SOS in 2015 was something like 70th—and that was after playing two top 5 power conference teams (which is almost never going to happen for a G5).

Even if UH had won out, they would have bumped them citing SOS. As long as the committee is made up of 13 P5 representatives, no G5 will get in. It’s just common sense. I’m probably not going to watch the National Championship game. I’m not really making a statement or anything and It may or may not be a good game. I just don’t really care who wins—not to mention it feels tainted—almost like wresting or boxing. Now that I am sure the G5 teams are not part of the CFP process, Its no more interesting to me than the Canadian Grey Cup or MLS Soccer.

UCF is really, really good, but probably not Top 4 good.

Did you say the same thing after Troy beat LSU this year?

RE: #BoycottCFBPlayoff
Beating 1 team (a very good team at that) in a bowl game does not equate to playing a 10-11 game SEC / ACC schedule. No way they finish with the record they did. I'm watching. It ought be a great game.

That's impossible to say. Logic says you are correct, but there is no way to know that for sure, because they never have the chance to play that schedule.

I am not one those that thinks UCF should have been in over any of the 4 teams chosen (or even the next couple left out), but I think the CFP committee needs to give serious consideration to changing the playoffs to make it a little more fair. FBS football is the only college sport that gives the smaller schools zero chance at a National Title. In baseball, if you're good enough, you have a shot (ask Coastal). Basketball, softball, tennis, golf, and every other sport is the exact same way. FBS football selects only 4 teams...with varying criteria year to year, and calls those the best.

Of course I understand that you'll never make everyone happy. If you pick 8, #9 will be pissed. If you make it 16, #17 won't be happy. I would love to see an 8 team playoff that selects the 5 P5 conference winners, top G5 program (there is usually little doubt about who this team is), and the top two teams that didn't fall into those categories. While that still has it's weaknesses, it's better than the current setup IMO.

16 teams football playoff (all games would be bowl games). P5 and G5 champs receive auto bids. 6 at-large teams according to the SOS and record. Reduced the number of regular season games to 10 (2 OOC, 8 conference games). boom! done.
