    Because the two teams agreed to play one another and negotiated a deal to do such.

    Exactly. Did you read the post I quoted? It's no secret that if you play (create) a more difficult schedule you will be rewarded when you win

    Strength of schedule will always mean more (and it should) than a bowl victory over a team that has already given up on the season.

    ^^^^ you don't actually believe UCF belonged in the top 4 over any of the 'selected' teams, do you?

    No doubt UCF is a quality team this year. But prior to their win over Auburn today their best win was against Memphis which was ranked #20 and was the only ranked team they played. Even if you win all your other games, that's simply not a resume that will get you into the playoffs against teams that have beaten multiple top 20 teams.

    sigh. they do the best they can with the way it is now. it will eventually change, and we'll put up with sour grapes then too. more games isn't the answer.

    You’re right, college football is insane.

    What is called a playoff really isn’t because not every team has a chance to play its way in.

    What we have is an invitational tournament controlled by “the committee.” But football is not gymnastics or diving. No one’s opinion is required because football has a scoreboard.

    Just make the conference championships the first round of a real playoff. Rotate the big games among major bowls. Conference runners-up and non-playoff teams can go to minor bowls.

    If we have to drop a regular season game to get a real playoff system, so what? I’m sick of cupcake games anyway.

    And if Notre Dame doesn’t want to join a conference, screw ‘em.

    no reason. you say the system sucks. I may agree, but really i just don't care. UCF didn't belong this year, and there's no changing it. full stop. call that a white flag if you want, especially if it helps you sleep tonight.

    what I really wanted to know is how you feel about the designated hitter

    We've been watching some of the FCS games this year .... smaller colleges like North Dakota State, James Madison, or VMI

    The have a better playoff system in my opinion .... starts with 24 teams and 5 playoff rounds .. top 8 seeds have a bye for the first round

    www.ncaa.com/interactive-bracket/football/fcs

    Still not perfect, but at least this increases the chances of the best teams getting into the championship ... like the NCAA basket ball tournament with 64 teams

    I can see the FBS moving to something like this someday ... but a century's worth of traditional bowl games and conference rivalries is hard to give up

    :munch

    Not sure if it was last year or the year before that the group of 5 went 0-35 against ranked power 5 teams. They really don't compare, and that's ok. I've heard some promoting a separate championship for group of 5 conferences. Seems like a great idea to me. More quality football to watch.

    If he actually believes UCF deserves a seat at the table why did he quit after going undefeated and take a “better” job? UCF’s best win going into the Peach Bowl was against who? Either Maryland or Memphis? Really? Auburn was playing in a conciliation game and UCF was playing in their super bowl. Happens all of the time. If that game had meaning it would have been a much different game. But saying that, I’m glad UCF won-a friend’s son is on the team.

    Funny thing about SoS is, I don’t think any of the teams in the Final 4, beat any team currently in the Top 12, during their regular season schedules.

    It is a bit of a farce that Alabama makes it when they didn’t even reach their own conference championship, and now Georgia has to face a team that didn’t reach them in the SEC final for the National Championship.

    That said, like @QRSS and I have said, Vegas thinks ‘Bama is #1. And this was before they smoked #1 Clemson yesterday, covering by 17+. Follow the money? That’s the money talking, right there.

    This is circular logic. They needed to prove it before the game, not after. And prior to the game they beat nobody and play in a terrible conference. They were in no way better than any of the four teams in the playoffs currently.

    What would you suggest that UCF should do to increase their chances of making it into the playoffs?

    Join the ACC or SEC and play quality opponents in 8 or 9 games a year.
