It would be equally as unfair to put a 12-0 team that had the easiest schedule in college football in the mix.

I'm not alluding to UCF in that statement but speaking generally.

There isn't a "fair" way to do it that everybody in college football would call fair.

Yes, there is. All conference champions get playoff spots like any real sport.

Not all conferences are created equally...

That might be fair if each conference championship was equally difficult to win. If not, then equally rewarding each conference champ would be "unfair" to teams competing in conferences that are more difficult to win.

And that's one reason why the bolded statement above is correct.

Yeah. Some get a shot at a championship and some don't causing an absurd two-tier system of elites and non-elites unlike any other alleged sport on earth. You solve this by having all conference champions get playoff access like every other sports league on earth does. Then the conferences start looking more like each other.

You can call it "looking more like one another," but I would call it a race to the bottom.

It's all a matter of perspective.

You aren't eligible to be hired because you don't have a job.

You can't enter the hospital if you are sick.

We can't mitigate the disparities in FBS football because there are disparities in FBS football.

Tired excuses to maintain the status quo.
