Queue the "Auburn wasn't trying" folks!
This could not have played out any better, I'm very happy! If Auburn clearly plays with and beats the #1's, and UCF has little issue controlling Auburn... well... sounds to me like UCF was good enough to play with the big boys all along.

Fix the system!

Oh this is fantastic. The amount of trolling UCF and Orlando are doing to the CFP is amazing. Billboards rented out telling the AP to vote UCF #1. The athletics department declaring themselves national champions, will get a banner in the stadium that says so. This is good shit.

It's getting even better. They're paying the coaches national championship bonuses and they're going to Disney world to throw a second national championship parade.

This is all a clever marketing campaign of course, but it's at the expense of telling the oligarchy to go fuck itself.

What in the flying fuck is this "Megacast" bullshit? Does ESPN really think I want to watch half of my TV screen covered by distracting videos of commentators? Does ESPN think I want to hear obnoxious fratboys with a microphone in their hands?

This will be a tricky situation for Ohio State. They probably don't have enough to fire with cause, and with $50 million owed to Meyer, they'd have to have him resign to get him out I'd assume. And it's bad, but it's not to the extent of what we saw at Penn State and Michigan State, and it will be easier for people to cite the gray area plausibly.

I don't see how he can coach there again, but you're right they probably end up paying him.

College football is back and #21 UCF is rolling.

#21.

Why?? It’s not like they lost a ton of players. Sure, Shaq and coach Frost were huge, and Trequan Smith was great, but the void left by Frost and Smith were filled, and all other impact players returned.

Preseason rankings have nothing to do with strength of schedule. This wreaks of “if they’re ranked too high and they don’t lose, they’ll be forced to move up.”

How can half of those teams ranked above them be considered better? Under what measure?

You know it’s college football when I’m ranting about my team’s rank.

Preseason rankings are so meaningless, I try to ignore them, but almost always fail.

They’re not meaningless though. Last year was evidence to a point I made to you back in 2015. For a flawless team (or near flawless, referencing the Bortles 11-1 Fiesta Bowl champs), the initial seed they start at means absolutely everything. Because SoS values wins against ‘top teams’, even early in the season. If we agree that a 3-4 loss Iowa State. For example, if we just agree that Miami is the 8th best team and they aren’t, and one of their ACC counterparts beats them, they’re going to be credited a top 10 win and take Miami’s place. So anyone without a preseason ranking and without an early game against a preseason ranked team loses the massive benefit associated with early acceptance.

Preseason rankings are legitimately ‘the system’ at work. Suppression of growth that threatens the ecosystem.

Sorry, I meant the # is meaningless. I don't disagree with you that it can fuck teams up, for sure.

That’s about as embarrassing as it gets
