Larry, that is hands down the absolute best most perfect rant we have ever had on this forum. LOL gets tossed around a lot but I literally laughed out loud. Thank you sir. Thank you.

The sec championship will be an ugly blowout. He who plays the fewest games reaps the highest rewards.

I watched that game. They never really got going. It's a strange year.

UCF vs BYU in bowl game. Should be interesting game. Just read up on them. Although they lost to Coastal Carolina, A NOBODY, they are 10-1 with a really good Qb and offense. Their defense is really good to. UCF has some top players sitting out due to trying for NFL. Home field advantage for UCF but the better team is BYU.

Dave is already laying the table - to paraphrase - if UCF beats BYU, they should be Natl Champ. BYU is the better team (even if they lost to a nobody), so a win by UCF is a HUGE upset. If Bama loses, the table is laid for UCF's second NC.

Well, earlier in the year UCF was ranked #11 (pre 3 game losses). BYU was sneaking up there as well. So, yes, if UCF beats BYU by more points than Coastal Carolina beat them AND, Coastal Carolina stays undefeated thru bowl season (and, they claim the NC)...Then, UCF wins National Championship. and/or, if Bama loses.

Pretzel logic, but, at least you are consistent year to year.

Is it NDs year this year?, unfortunately NO, another blowout coming for them, perhaps as early as this Saturday.

Thanks. Why not? Why does a board room of people get to determine who gets to play in a championship game? I have an subjective opinion just as much as anyone else does. I want to see my team in the top...Just like you...or anyone else. Why you jest my opinion instead of the one's making the decisions. They are subjective. A school president or an Athletic Director well always lean on their on self interest. I do, they do, we all do...I say expand the playoffs and let other teams in. Let a cinderalla team in (Yes that can happen in college football)...as you never know...like a 2017 UCF team that deserved it. Or, even the 2018 undefeated UCF team that got shunned again. Now, Undefeated Cinci. They can compete, but no chance with who is picking the teams.

College Football Playoff committee has a vested interest in keeping their teams in the top rankings. Glad you guys see that.

Look at the Gators for example. Who would have thought LSU would have beat them? Take your subjective eyeglasses off and let them settle it on the field.

Ok, enough! Back to the topic at hand: Yeah for Pretzel logic and letting a 2 loss Iowa State team leapfrog an undefeated Cinci team.

This thread is by far the funniest one going on the forum right now.

CFL - Everything you say is true. As I have said to everyone at every opportunity, the effort to crown a "true" objective NC in Div I football is, not only unfair to many potentially worthy teams, it is a fool's errand. It is purely and simply a money grub. The old bowl system was much fairer and left people far happier at the end of the year. This system is garbage.

1) People are no longer happy when their team has a great season and goes to their conference tie-in bowl as conference champion. It used to be a big deal to win the SEC and go to the Sugar, or the Big 10/Pac 8 and go to the Rose, or the Big 8 and go to the Orange, or even the "lesser" conferences with their tie-ins (like the ACC and Peach, hahaha). Now most teams and fans (such as you, Dave) are pissed at the end of the season;
2)Nobody watches or cares about the bowls anymore. They (and really only their fans) only care about the BCS bowls and the only people who watch the entire games are fans of the teams in them or crazy people who don't have to go to work the next day;
3) NY Day used to be a big deal with an orgy of football, food and craziness, switching from game to game, drinking, laughing, jawing, etc with family and friends. You got up early, made the snacks (Hoppin' John reqd), got ready for the games and watched football for 12 straight hours, switching back and forth between games. Then you went to work and relived them the next day. Now you watch a few parts of a few games alone and nobody really gives a crap.
4) When there were multiple no. 1s after the bowls (UPI and AP, but, there came and went a few others), it was a good thing. Two teams were now happy having won the NC and it gave us something to argue (good naturedly) about the next day at work (and, really, for the next few months). AND, did I say it - we were HAPPY!

Bottom line - football used to be fun, not aggravating, for most people. This system SUCKS, but, because of the number of teams, there is nothing that would be fairer. If they went to 8 teams, no. 9 would be pissed. It took B-ball expanding the NCAAs from 8 teams to 72 and STILL teams are rightly pissed. After all, what is the real difference between team 24 and team 25 or team 72 and team 73 or team 310 and team 311?? NOTHING. I know I'm pissing up a rope, but we should go back to the old bowl system and have FUN not anger.

Wow, Big 10 and Big 12 Championships (both between two ranked teams) at noon. Right up there with Wake/F$U. What a snub.

Florida State at Wake Forest has been canceled because FSU has an insufficient number of available offensive linemen after positive Covid-19 tests and contact tracing.
