How is South Florida getting ten votes? Might as well give ten votes to my muddy shoes.

UAB sure got rolling again quickly.
Nice call out. How did they resurrect that program so quickly. All that talent in the South that’s not quite good enough for the bigger schools?

Totally forgot Syracuse had Clemson on the ropes and let them go. They would be top 6 if they had won that

I'm convinced that UCF could go undefeated five years in a row and not get to sniff the college playoffs. LSU is higher in the coaches poll with 2 losses. Unreal...

I just can't believe that a team can go undefeated two consecutive years and still will not be able to play in a four team playoff.

Last year was unfair. This year is disgusting...

UCF isn’t as good this year as they were last year, and the injury to Milton is devastating. I don’t mind them not qualifying for a 4 team contest this year as I don’t think they’ll show well.

If tOSU leapfrogs them in the playoff poll, though, that would be full on ridiculous, IMHO.

"Showing well" is not the point. They've more than earned a chance to play for it. This is just more evidence that the so called power 5 are behaving as a monopoly, and the NCAA is a sham...

Depends who they have scheduled OOC.

No, it doesn't.

If that's what's keeping them out, then the NCAA has one of two options:

1) create the conferences in FBS such that all have a strength of schedule that one can live with in order to call them the 4th ranked team in the country (which is what we're talking about).

2) stop this sham that the non p5 FBS teams are actually FBS. Of course, doing that would probably elicit law suits, etc., which is why they don't explicitly state it and continue with this robbery.
