I’m picking Georgia.

For what it’s worth:

2015 CFP NCG - #4 over #2
2016 & 2017 CFP NCG - #2 over #1
2018 CFP NCG - #3 vs #4

If I were to reseed top 10 after the NY6...
#1 Georgia
#2 Alabama
#3 Oklahoma
#4 Ohio St
#5 Central Florida
#6 Wisconsin
#7 Clemson
#8 Penn St
#9 TCU
#10 Notre Dame

I think it's a great matchup. Playoff proponents want it to be settled on the field and that's what will happen, so there shouldn't be any complaints.

You talk about access and fairness, but how fair would it be for a UCF team to be included in a playoff when it achieved it's undefeated record with a schedule that doesn't compare to the teams ranked above them? Their only win over a team in the final pre-bowl Top 25 was a double overtime win over No. 20 Memphis. Should they get in a playoff over teams with schedules like Ohio State, Notre Dame, etc.? That wouldn't seem too fair to me.

I agree that their schedule isn’t the same. They can only play their schedule. They would choose a tougher conference if they could. Schools can’t just up and join whatever conference they want. It’s patently unfair for that and other reasons. That being said, I don’t believe they are one of the best 4 teams but we’ll never know.

That is BS. All conferences faces the same amount of weak members. They think if you play a pansy like Kansas? They value Kansas more than they value UCF in football. The PAC 12 do think playing schools like Eastern Washington or the top teams in the MWC have more value to the strength of schedule than playing Kansas. The issue is conferences like ACC, Big 12, Big 10 and the SEC are afraid to put teams like the MWC and the AAC on the schedule because they are afraid of losing a game.

I'll watch. Who doesn't want to see Alabama play Georgia? 07-coffee3

It's like asking "if Duke plays Syracuse in the NCAA tourney, who will watch"?

Plenty will.

I don’t want to see Bama and the mutts play that’s for sure, back in the day yeah sure, but not now, not in today’s college football landscape
Fan interest imo will only grow and get very divided as time goes on, 10 conference champions and some wildcards will keep me interested
All this back and forth crap talk about who you played or didn’t play or you don’t make enough money or whatever will go away if you have conference champs play in a real crap talk eliminating playoff

Will not be watching. ESPN's fictional national championship does not interest me.

It's nowhere near as bad as 2011 because Georgia hasn't yet played Alabama this season. I'll probably watch until Alabama chokes the life out of Georgia in the 2nd half like last night.

You mean like when UConn finished 9th in the Big East regular season but played for the title in 2011?

Happens all the time in hoops. 07-coffee3

All the conference champions had a shot at the title though. So it's not exactly apples to apples.

That’s simply idiotic. The reality is there is no economic advantages to doing so.

Well, to be fair, those teams were allowed to have losses due to their schedule, in some cases multiple losses. UCF get one loss, and they are out.
