#BoycottCFBPlayoff
If we can’t get a conference champ an auto bid or even get in if we’re undefeated then the national championship/playoffs are rigged. 2 teams from the same conference? One of them didn’t even win their division in the conference?!

Many people are boycotting it and I’m asking you to spread the word and help it go viral. I’m not watching any rigged ESPN playoff games/faux national championships until they fix this nonsense. The G5 conferences should be raising lawsuits over this.

You have fun not watching then.

Btw, what two teams are better than Georgia and Alabama?

I think it is going to be an awesome game.

Hopefully the efforts of the UCF Athletic Director will produce a more equitable result for our conferences. I feel Troy did not get any respect by the CFP this year...Sun Belt way stronger in football than many realize, and that's with limited resources.

RE: #BoycottCFBPlayoff
Central Florida got hurt by the fact their game with Georgia Tech got cancelled.

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).

I'm sorry, but you cannot tell me that UCF was a better team than any of the teams that made the top 4. Hell, even if you swapped OSU and Alabama, it still wouldn't matter.

They are only the best teams in the first place because the best players don’t want to play for a school that has 0.0% chance of playing for a national championship.

Every other division of college football has a real playoff not this 4 team nonsense.

RE: #BoycottCFBPlayoff
UCF would not beat Auburn in a playoff setting. It's a statistical fact that teams play much worse after losing games that mean something. You can say that's an excuse, and as for the Peach Bowl itself, you'd probably be right. Zero chance Auburn's players prepare the same way for a playoff game as they would vs a G5 opponent in what they probably think is a meaningless bowl (even though it is not). It's just human nature. UCF is really, really good, but probably not Top 4 good.

These were 4 of the best 5 teams. It's not perfect, but it's better than it was.

I'd like to see each P5 conference champ, one additional P5 team, and two G5 teams in an 8 team playoff.

RE: #BoycottCFBPlayoff
I'm boycotting it, ie not watching, but not due to any particular political machinations, I just don't care to watch. The overhyping of the Saban/Smart master/student storyline will be vomit-inducing enough to make me want to avoid it, but throw in the fact that the 2 teams are mirror images of each other, it will likely be a boring ass game. Who remembers the Alabama/LSU game, wasn't it like 13-9 or something and as exciting as watching paint dry?

UCF has a great team. I think it would be an interesting matchup against one of the CFP teams in the very least.

He has a point about Houston too. They had made it all the to #6 in the AP Poll by Week 2... had they gone undefeated with wins over Oklahoma, Louisville, Navy, Memphis, and Tulsa... they would've been in the CFP no doubt.
