    That's a bigger stretch than my fat pants were on Thanksgiving Day.
    Horrible for Milton - huge athlete and seems like a great guy. Not a single person was waiting for him to get hurt or to "screw UCF". This is the mentality that makes people not to want to root for UCF.

    no its the truth its just how the committee is, we lost milton. wont have him for the memphis game or if we make the bowl game, and most likely he's done for next season too. Im not saying people were waiting for something to happen to ucf as a whole (mainly people were waiting for a loss, to say "told you so") but his injury will be a reason people bring up why they lower UCF in the rankings. It is what it is.
    Plus i think the biggest reason will be usf was no longer a ranked team by the time we got to play them, so between the other rival games this week in the P5 (and the majority of those being ranked games), we would probably drop regardless.

    it drives me crazy because here we have a losing georgia team, and sports analysts still think they should make it in...And most predictions are already predicting GA will make it in as well. The SEC bias is real and its becoming real annoying. It shouldnt be called a playoff, it should be called an invitational...
    unfortunately they wont probably wont expand it till tv contracts run out which isnt for another 8 years from now...

    because an 11-2 team shouldnt be above two 12-1 teams. And im not even counting UCF because i know the committee will always rank us lower. They lost to at the time #13 ranked lsu and then fell to bama, they shouldnt have made the playoffs based off that alone. Oklahoma was the right choice.

    And frankly, I would LOVE for UGA to get to play ANY of the teams ranked above them. They played Bama closer than any team this year. I would love to see what they could do against Clemson, Notre Dame, and OK. And I wish they could also play Ohio State and UCF. I wish there was time to play a Final Four type tournament to REALLY see these teams play head to head and shut all of these butt-hurt people up.:)

    college football playoffs just in general dont make sense, and the more and more it happens the more teams start to notice the favoritism that goes into it. Its not a playoff when your excluding a good size portion of other college football teams. Look at college basketball, thats what a playoff should look like in a sense. Because thats what an actual playoff is.
    if they want to keep it to four teams, fine. But dont continue to call it a playoff and claim its a fair system, when its not. Call it an invitational... because thats kinda what it has turned into.
    And just up and joining a P5 division isnt going to happen overnight for any school that wants to, its takes years, waiting for a realignment to happen, acceptance into that conference and a poop ton of money.

    11-2 is not a losing team and they are going to the Rose Bowl. Understandably though anything less than making the playoffs is a disappointment for teams like Georgia and OSU. I was happy Georgia was 5th (Penn State was Big 10 champs 2 seasons ago and was #6 because of their 11-2 record. Sucked but it was what it was) and even happier Ohio State was 6th because I despise that program and Urban Meyer. Go Clemson!

    lol UCF wasn't getting in no matter what. No biases there. Just a really, really bad strength of schedule.

    in the current system, no. No non P5 school will ever make the playoffs. But then whats the point of any non power 5 school having a football team, and whats the point in critics and people of the committee going on national tv claiming there are "paths" for non p5 schools to make the playoffs in its current state.
    personally i dont think non p5 schools adding in a few away p5 games to their schedule will do anything anyways, even if they were to beat them all, the committee would come back and say "well you only played 2,3,4.... strong teams and the rest was garbage so you dont deserve it cause your still in a weak conference.."
    theres just too many scenarios that non p5 schools face trying to climb the rankings then just who they play....

    which is why id be all for expanding the playoffs and adding in one wildcard spot for the highest ranking non power 5 school... seems the most logical answer, and most other sports do their playoff system that way anyways.

    I'm not arguing that the current system is perfect. I'm just saying bias was not the reason UCF was left out of a 4 team playoff.

    and im not either, i knew UCF wouldnt make the playoffs because how the system is set up today..
    And yes i too think our AD is a moron.....
    UF has offered what i think is a great thing, UCF will blow it because ultimately college football is a money game now a days.

    **Ahh yes ucf, in typical dramatic fashion gotta screw up a good deal when you had one. I promise most of the ucf fan base isnt as delusional as our AD. Some are, but most are realistic to as where ucf football is at and what needs to change. **
    Social media basically makes any football fan base look crazed.

    On a different note, whoever came up with the idea of assigned seating at a movie theater can die a horrible death. Went to a movie people sat in our seats refused to move, so we had to move like 5 times, ended up with no seats and my pregnant butt demanded my money back... Will never be a returning customer to AMC theaters again.
