    Is this like a list of the worst P5 teams?

    I included 7 P5 teams since classification alone makes up for the quality of team.

    I'd sub Virginia for Army and FAU for Rutgers.

    It’s funny seeing a Florida fan carrying water for UCF.

    Surely you wouldn't have a problem with this schedule getting any team in the playoff. If you do then you're a hypocrite.

    I guess it is a rarity for a cfb fan to stick to logic and rationality. Tshirt bandwagoners like you abandon both in whatever favors their team.

    Why would I be a hypocrite for having a problem with a team that went undefeated against a schedule that had a combined 80-76 record and had one opponent ranked in the AP top 25, at #22?, going to the playoff?

    Actually, going into the playoffs, they had 2 ranked opponents in the AP top 25, #19 (Memphis) and #22 (USF), beating #19 twice. If Auburn had beaten Georgia in the SEC championship would you have not given them credit for beating Georgia twice?

    You can't use their records from last season for this season. Duh. Are you trying to tell me that an 11-1 G5 might be better than a 0-12 P5 team? You can't be serious with that logic.

    You're right, they could be worse than last year, so it's pretty stupid to try to say whether a team that played that schedule has an argument to be in the playoff.

    Where did I say anything about G5 and P5?

    Would you have a problem with a team going into the playoffs that went 11-1 against a schedule that had a combined 79-66 record and had only two wins against ranked opponents in the AP top 25 (#16 & #24)?

    I apologize, I did make a mistake in the win-loss totals because I included the bowl games, which obviously wouldn't have been considered in the playoff rankings. The hypothetical team would have been 73-75, and included 2 teams that were 1-11. I believe the team you reference above was actually a combined 80-65 in regular season and conference championship games, which is considerably better than 73-75, so I'd have much less of a problem with them going to the playoffs instead of the OP's.

    Of course, that's not my decision, and I didn't think that Alabama should have gone to the playoff last year, just like I didn't think Ohio State should have gone the year before, but they did, and beat the #1 and #3 teams in the country, so I'm not going to say they didn't win the championship under the system that we have now.

    UCF certainly has a beef with how they were ranked, but it still doesn't mean that beating the #6 team in a meaningless bowl game makes them the national champion.

    You're not getting it man. Supposedly some teams shouldn't get a shot because they don't play big boy conference teams. Well here is a good example of a lot of teams that those big boy programs play. Why wouldn't this hypothetical team get the same benefit of schedule?

    Depends on what other teams do. I could see them ranked below a number of one loss teams.

    And which team plays a schedule made up entirely of the teams like the ones you mention, so we can be outraged when they get in instead of the team whose ballsack you're dangling from?

    It would depend on what other teams had done. Assuming Bama Clemson Okie and Georgia had the same seasons they did then I'd say no.

    But that's under the assumption that they played their current schedules. In this hypothetical, OP is asking if teams like Bama, Clemson, Oklahoma and Georgia were to have a schedule like this, would they be in?

    As soon as they leave their current conferences and load up on G5's and creampuffs from the P5's, maybe we'll find out.

    This team. Jeez you're obtuse. It isn't that deep man. Yes and no answers are ok.

    This hypothetical is exactly why the invitation portion of the current system needs to be eliminated and conference champions have automatic bids.

    We'd be that team's only quality win, so no. One good win isn't enough.

    It's a made up team with a made up schedule, and like it or not, these things don't operate in a vacuum. Would a team like Alabama, which had won 4 championships in the past 10 years, been in hunt for the championship in all but one of those years, with a record of 125 -14, be viewed differently than one which in the same time frame had won none nor been in the hunt for any, had a record of 78-51, including 6-19 in the two years previous to last?

    Duh. A one year wonder playing in a G5 conference isn't going to get the same consideration as one that has a proven record of elite play.

    So we can have an affirmative action program for teams that play weak-ass schedules in second tier conferences.

    I'm not interested in your story. You can't say play somebody from a real conference then take it back. That's the narrative that these G5 programs are running into. Well if they did it still wouldn't matter to the good ole boys.

    They would have to play good teams from those real conferences, not the bottom feeders. Boise St gets respect because they have a proven record of accomplishment against good teams, and because they field consistently good teams, not going 0-12 and 6-7 and then demanding respect because they had one very good season.

    Boise didn't get respect. They got stuck playing TCU at their height. Like I said the good ole boys will never be satisfied with G5 accomplishments. The goal posts will continually be moved until they get an opportunity to join a P5 conference. Then again TCU joined the Big12 and got snuffed.

    There is hope for you after all.

    Winning a bowl game doesn’t make UCF National Champs. Just as no Bowl game alone has determined any the NC.

    Being the only undefeated team and beating the only team who beat the winning team of the invitational, makes us National Champions.

    Do you think that undefeated Boise State should have been in the 2006 championship game instead of 1 loss Florida?

    Not really. Win your last game ranked 3 by almost 50 and drop to 6. Good ole boys strike again with the CCG excuse. They'll put ND in with a loss and no CCG.
