Well, it's still realistically possible in a two season format. Houston had a great ranking last year, was it? To start the season. If they won out, given their schedule, it was conceivable.

That's sort of the UCF pipe dream I have right now. Make it to their NY6, win, retain Frost/Milton/Killins, and start next season with a mid rank and play some solid ranked SEC or ACC opponents in addition to Memphis and South Florida continuing their solid performances... and be a 0 or 1 loss team. Probably 0.

It's sad that that's the extent a team would have to go to of "ifs" to just be considered. Wasn't TCU evidence enough that there's a big falsehood surrounding non power teams' ability to play against power teams?

OOOOOOF omg heart attacks galore UCF over USF 49-42 in a roller coaster final fourth quarter.

There we have it. Perfect during the regular season. Now for the AAC conference championship!

The end of that game was quite entertaining.

Wow. The committee had the nerve to put Stanford and Washington above UCF today. This system is fucked. UCF took down a ranked 9-1 team (but everyone look it was a power 5 ranked 9-1 team!!).

I hope TCU beats Oklahoma on Saturday just so it screws the Big XII out of a Playoff spot by having a Conference Championship game this year.

Goodness sake the irony.

Actually I probably don't want that to happen because it would likely mean two SEC teams in the playoff (assuming Alabama wins). It's too bad TCU lost to Iowa St or they would be playing for a playoff spot on Saturday.

As for my earlier comment, I'm not really a fan of the Big 12 after the way they handled the last round of expansion, so I would have some schadenfreude in seeing them shutout (again).

Alabama doesn't play. They are going to waltz into the playoff yet again if any of the top 4, who all have tough title games, lose.
Terrible system.

Ahh yeah you're right. I'd just been hearing Bama was in if Oklahoma or Wisconsin lost.

Yeah the system is far from perfect but I like it better than the BCS era.

As a fan of a quasi G5 school I would like to see the playoff expanded to 8 teams. The five P5 Conf. champs, two at large, and a spot for the top G5 team (maybe based on certain ranking qualifications).

It definitely needs to at least go to 8.

Fuck that. I would like to see respect given to "group of 5" teams. Power 5 my ass. Yes, I agree, specific programs do make those conferences have more talent. But it's been shown before several times that a good team from "group of 5" conferences can easily best a good team from "power 5" conferences.

Woke up 7 AM on 1 hour sleep and drove three hours up to Orlando for the AAC championship.

That was wild. Insane. So many heart attacks. So many mountains to overcome. UCF blocked a kick with some 20 seconds left to keep it tied. After the celebrations - and I didn't see any flags - they called back the play for a re-kick due to delay of game. This was the second turnover callback on a delay of game in the final minutes of a tied game, seemed rather suspect in how they let the play go on before blowing their whistles.

Anywho, 2x OT 120 points endzone interception to win it. I've lost my voice and my heart can't take anymore amazing game to see. Extra bonus: All That You Can't Leave Behind... Scott Frost holding back tears on the championship podium as Beautiful Day plays - news was announced during OT that he was leaving for Nebraska (spineless disgusting media).
