    :lol: FCS

    The system puts these dumb labels in there to craft erroneous perception to idiots.

    Tablet limited: UCF is div-1 school. Played at least 5 teams flirting with top 25.

    Maybe they should make this bowl Championship a seperate division 1-A for only those "really" eligible?

    Even if Memphis beats UCF both will be 1-loss. Same as other 1-loss div-1 schools...or are they? When Ohio st. Squeaks by WISC, the apple cart tips.

    Oh wait. WISC beat NorthWestern....my bad. That makes you an automatic lock I guess. UCF road win at SMU rendered invalid.

    Undefeated UCF at #12 in the playoff rankings and two-loss Auburn at #4. It's a have and have-nots system.

    UCF needs to play in a real conference or play their non conference schedule against top 25 teams if they want any respect. The toughest team they played this year was Memphis.

    Could they at least PRETEND that UCF controls their own destiny (same as WISC)? Is that too much to ask?

    2-loss teams control their won destiny (AUB and OSU).
    Many 1-loss teams control their own destiny (but not Memphis).


    I forgot: powerhouse WISC beat powerhouse NORTHWESTERN......all hail power conference.

    In General..... Admiral.......I would agree. But, UCF won road games at NAVY SMU MD etc. That is not Chopped Liver. GT was scheduled but the Hurricane got that one.

    WISC did not do crap.........yet they control their own destiny? If OSU beats them OSU goes in but UCF has no shot? huh?

    Sorry! None of those teams can compete. They are simply also-rans!

    Look at what America has become....."the Admiral" thinks Navy Midshipmen are also ran. at home! I will alert the media.

    SMU....you stink too. Maryland, well just give it up ACC, down year. If you are not Iowa.....er wait? They beat juggernaught OHIO. MEM enjoy you Holiday bowl......you are not really DIV-1.

    Gee too bad they did not get to play MSU or IU. We play the schedule, win them all. Crickets.

    Military academies suck at football because the military standards don't allow for 300 pound lineman unless they are 8 feet tall!

    Auburn's nose guard was in my platoon as a Marine PLC program student. He had to drop out of the program because he could not meet the weight standards even though the man had virtually not an ounce of fat on his body. He was a beast!

    I am sorry that you don't understand that there are varying levels within college football. Every one of those teams you mentioned are also-rans. They may have had some good teams in the past, but for the past few decades they have sucked ass!

    How many teams outside the SEC have won a national championship since the year 2000?

    Start adding up the wins by Alabama, Auburn, Florida and LSU and who do you have left?

    Clemson, OSU, OK, TX, FSU and USC. (USC was stripped of their title in 2004 and it should have gone to Auburn that year).

    Then change the playoff rules. No also-rans allowed. Had what? 3 years of this bowl stuff? ALA-FSU-OSU winners? of course you are right, but 12-0 played D1 schedule yet a 2 loss team jumps over? That says not eligible to me.

    We have real D1 and phony D1 teams in case ALA FSU OSU stumbles.

    If they don't let you in you can't win. Boise beat OKLA one yr in a major bowl. it can happen.
