Hmm this ranking looks suspiciously similar to the conference revenue ranking, doesn't it?

School conference earning subsidize coaches salaries. Just another example of why dropping football would put us into a death spiral.

If the P5 does consolidate into the P4, the PAC will be rooting for the ACC to surive and I bet they put the full press to pull Texas in, even if that includes taking Texas Tech with them.

yep...with only the SEC and ACC making every playoff, and the B!G, Big 12, and PAC 12 missing at least two each...the votes from the P5's should be there to expand the CFP.

I don't think that a playoff expansion necessarily impacts realignment...but non expansion along with a P4 CFP would.

For all the pomp around the CFP, nothing has really changed except they added two more big money games.

Selection is still based on the cultivated opinions of people who are not accountable and skew heavily to branded programs.

The formula is still the same. Play no one OOC and rely on your brand to get you though.

Playing Memphis in your CCG might be a little different than playing Georgia in a CCG.

More along the line of Clemson playing Pitt.

Outside of Clemson on top of the ACC and UConn at the bottom of the AAC, I think the two conferences are evently matched at this time. Memphis would have given Clemson the same amount of fight as Pitt did and I'd wager that UCF would have hammered Pitt.

UCF beat Pitt 45-14. Clemson beat Pitt 42-10.

Memphis is better than Pitt. Memphis should be ranked higher than Pitt as should Cincinnati.

We know UCF manhandled Auburn last year. If they beat LSU minus their Heisman candidate QB will you please shut up?

Nope...because you have to have an SOS in regular season better than UCF's current #90 ranking.

The playoff teams have rankings of less than half of that...a 12-1 Ohio State would be in before UCF.

Playing #132 in the opener doesn't help that. it's also a fake metric.

Which team with less than 3 losses did Clemson beat this year? Zero.
Alabama? One.
Oklahoma? Zero.
Notre Dame? One.
UCF? One.

SOS is overrated because it assumes there is an operative difference between the 50th best team and the 80th. As I just showed.

Maybe...but I'd take 3 loss Florida over 2 loss Cincinnati...and 4 loss Texas A&M ....and Texas, etc.

Central Florida has played no top 30 team....their best win was 7-6 Pitt and maybe 8-5 Memphis.

SOS is also reliant on preseason rankings which are a sham.

How does a 7 loss FSU rate? The same as a 4 loss A&M or an 11 loss UConn. They only count if you lose.

If the SEC is so big an bad, then how did two teams manage to knife though it with one combined loss? Clemson and OU literally beat no one of substance.

The problem with your retort is that no top 10 or even top 20 P5 team wants to play UCF.

It's not like UCF can just draw up whatever schedule it wants and force teams to play them.

What in essence you are doing is punishing UCF for something that is out of their control

I don't really buy that...UCF has been "Snydering"...but they are starting to schedule up....they play Stanford next year.

BYU plays Utah, USC, Washington, Miss. State...next year

....& CAL, Wisconsin, Washington, Arizona this year

...& played Wisconsin, Utah, LSU, Boise in 2017
------------------------------------------------------------------

Cincinnati plays Ohio State and UCLA next year
