Wrecking the 2019 College Football Playoff

UCF was not allowed to participate in the 2018 playoff due to their schedule. The consistent knock on them was they only beat one top 25 team, a home game against #20 Memphis. They finished ranked at #12 in the CFB rankings with 12 wins.

Think about this scenario for the 2018 season that could wreck their precious playoff.......

Southern Miss runs the table, wins every single game, including a 3 point win at #7 Auburn and a win on the road against eventual Sun Belt champion App St, who also beat #10 Penn St to start the season as an early upset.

Auburn wins the SEC West, then the SEC Championship and gets into the playoff as a #2 seed.

Does the committee allow an undefeated and top 10 ranked USM with 13 wins including a top 7 win on the road against another playoff team that won the SEC in the playoff?

I think they have to. Tonight's game is a joke. People should stage a protest outside Bower's house.

I can’t think about that. I’m to busy trying to decide what to do with my lotto money when I win.

I don't think we'd get in.

Had Houston run the table in 2016 they MIGHT have gotten in. Remember that they beat Oklahoma and Louisville OOC (pretty easily, I would add) but lost a couple in AAC play.

I don't see how they can leave out any undefeated team after this season.

UCF has a solid claim on the championship, and they didn't even get into the tournament.

This embarrassment is mitigated somewhat by the fact that UCF doesn't really have many fans, but the "hot stove season," with all of its manufactured acrimony, will begin soon.

Re: Wrecking the 2019 College Football Playoff

If UCF played and beat a team that eventually made the playoff this year hey would have been in it. At that point, the excuse by the committee about schedule is worthless.

UCF played and beat a team that beat both of tonight's "finalists" pretty convincingly. The whole "comparative score" thing is often bullshit, but UCF did enough to claim at least a share of the national championship this year. It's not fair to pick four specific teams and look for a victory against one. By that standard, most historical national champions wouldn't be legitimate.

Agreed.

What most don’t get is that the have nots in the P5 conferences have no access as well.

You can name all teams with a chance prior to any game being played every year.

It will always be less than 30. Usually less than 20.
