I think we should just declare ourselves Nat’l Champs

Posted: Sep 21, 2018 7:45 PM

like UCF. It would be a whole lot easier. Those people are delusional. They think being 15-0 against the likes of Memphis (twice), UConn, and Austin Peay is a ticket to the top? The only decent team they beat was Auburn by a TD in the Peach Bowl. And I’d argue that was after Auburn was demoralized by UGA in the SEC Champ. This is our buttercup society at its worst. “Hey we get big rings too.”

Wait... so are you for it or against it?

To be fair

It's pretty ridiculous that you can go undefeated and have zero chance to play for the championship of the division of football you play in.

There really needs to be another division of football that the non power 5 (and similar) teams play in, or some path for those teams to play in the playoff of the FBS.

Why couldn’t they have competed?

The Power 5 or automatic qualifying went out with the BCS. That name has just been maintained by the sports media. My guess is the committee decided their schedule wasn’t very competitive like I just said. Also, UCF could always attempt to join one of those conferences if they really felt they were that good and wanted to raise their profile. They’d probably be a good swap for FSU in football right now. However there’s more to just football in choosing conference members.

You can't just invite yourself into a power 5 conference

Again, I'm not saying they are the champs, but I just don't understand setting up a playoff that doesn't have a path to the championship for every team that plays in the division.

Again, either change the system, or have them play in their own division that they can win.

But its just part of the problem I have with the way its all organized with unbalanced mega-conferences and a lack of a playoff without an opinion-based path for teams to get in.

This is the easiest solution. HAve the Big10, SEC, and ACC champ get in, Have the Big12 v Pac12 play on champ weekend for the fourth spot.

The group of 5 could organize themselves in the same manor.

Too late, this season is over, coots declared themselves National Champions in July.
