The playoff criteria does stupid stuff like rank UCF 12 in the first place. Why should we trust the playoff criteria over anything else?

Your point only holds water if one actually believes that winning the AAC is impressive enough to warrant the inclusion you desire.

It's important to realize that many people, in fact the majority, do not feel that it does.

Yeah because of that same circular logic of "We're good because we're good and we've always been good. You're bad because you're bad and you've always been bad."

No "you're" bad because you played a SoS in the high 70s. There is nothing "circular" about that.

SOS because of the way the game is set up, such as the R5 scheduling easy wins to pad their winning percentages and then beat up on each other. They lucked up and had their game cancelled against Georgia Tech. That would have been a blow or not because of the ever loving R5 tag?

It's the same game over and over. And by the way, don't think I don't understand why that is or is done. The elites want to hold on to their stature.

To be fair, UCF didn't face a great schedule but they gave a ranked team their only (regular season) losses. They also beat a close-to-ranked team. It's the same narrative over and over.

I don't think anybody would deny that.

The issue is that you have given no reason as to why that should change. That may not be entirely fair, but there certainly isn't anything compelling.

Nobody is under any obligation to give you anything.

Which is why college football is a joke and any casual observer knows it.

Widening the sweeping nature of your statements doesn't make them true.

You can find just as many flaws in any sport. At the end of the day everyone has to decide for themselves whether they want to keep watching that sport. And it's a safe bet that anyone who has written over 10,000 message board comments on college football has decided to keep watching. 07-coffee3
