Alabama have name brand, but they did not have all the criteria to be in the playoffs in the first place.

Wouldn't it be hilarious if wikileaks did an email dump of the committee members?

lol...when the CFP collaspes early---which it will--it will be because they stood like buffoons saying "we stand by our decisions" when its obvious to anyone capable of fogging a mirror they were wrong, biased, pig headed, and arrogant. Hancock would have been much better served to acknowledge the mistake with something like---"We probably did under rank the top G5 these last few years and we need to reassess how we look at the top G5 options". Hancock is truly a complete moron. He always has been.

Well, that wouldn't have satisfied the unhappy ones wither as the BCS system would have produced the exact same four teams per the simulations by BCSKnowHow.com

Before Monday, I didn't hear too much about UCF being "robbed" out of a playoff spot. If Danny White was so confident, he should have been saying this stuff to the nation starting on selection day. But now that they won, he is acting like he knew this all along.

Thats a little misleading. I think becasue the Selection Committee has so much power, the tendency of voters is now to try to mimic the thinking of the committee rather than to think for themselves. If the human polls were again part of MAKING the decision rather than just an academic exercise--I think you would see them track differently. As I said, just a few years ago (2011)--UH had a resume VERY similar to UCF's 2017 resume. At that time, UH was ranked #6 with just the CCG left to play. The only real difference between now and then was 4 years of Selection Committee indoctrination.

CFP head honcho directly pissed off UCF President in post-peach comments ...
Here's the 1-2 reality ...

1) No UCF fan believes UCF should have been top 4 pre-bowl, but #12 was a direct insult

2) UCF President Dr. Hitt agreed to the "National Championship" as a direct result of the CFP's post-Peach Bowl comments "re-justifying" UCF's #12 ranking

Most UCF fans thought #6-9 pre-Peach. Even BCS had UCF #7 -- #3 for computer, #10 in AP. Putting UCF #18, then #14, and even considering a 4 loss team head of UCF at #12, before they finally put UCF #12, was exactly what Scott Frost meant by, "They didn't want to rank UCF too high, in case more losses came."

Although UCF AD Danny White jokingly mouthed the "National Championship" claim on TV, it was UCF's President Dr. Hitt that caused this to really go forward. Dr. Hitt, after hearing the CFP head honcho directly say UCF deserved its #12 ranking, and should basically be thankful they got the Peach Bowl, further insinuating UCF wouldn't even make a 8 team playoff, was beyond pissed off.

Dr. Hitt is a soft-spoken and very witty man. He does do things lightly. You really have to piss him off before he'll go off on you to make a point. And now he is ...

Everyone at UCF is ... and UCF is big, really, really freak'n big, and only growing in the nation's 3rd most populous state. UCF may be 100,000+ students projected by 2030, with thousands of acres set aside that wraps from the east side and down towards Lake Nona and the airport.

"The University of Central Florida, or UCF, is an American public state university in Orlando, Florida. It is the largest university in the United States by undergraduate enrollment,[8] as well as the largest by enrollment at a single campus.[3]"

RE: CFP selection committee defends leaving out undefeated UCF
"go back to the BCS" is just as ignorant as the "go back to backroom deals" jab people got when they complained about the BCS a few years back. Here's a news flash. What we have now and turning back the clock are not the only two options. A real playoff is a real solution, and can be done. Just because the people who used to say a +1 model like we have now was logistically impossible now say a bigger playoff is logistically impossible doesn't make it so.

Yes, the bowls will be greatly diminished, but I think a real postseason tournament would be more gratifying than a bunch of exhibition games.

RE: CFP selection committee defends leaving out undefeated UCF
Why stop with UCF? Let's have Auburn (2004), Penn State (1994), Tulane (1998), Boise State (2006 and 2009), TCU (2010), Utah (2004 and 2008) and Marshall (1999) also be recognized as national champions too.

Some people here need to stop arguing like UCF is the first school to go undefeated and not have a chance at being recognized as a national champion. It has happened before and it will happen again. UCF's win, at the very least, has catapulted them to the very top of expansion list in the next go-around. They are just making their resume that much more attractive.

The CFP committee does not need to defend anything. The ratings will once again be incredibly high. Sponsors are happy. Networks are happy. The P5 is happy.

It is the first time since they've claimed to have a "playoff", and that matters.

There would be zero media traction to this if the game wasn't played yet.

It has never happened to such a large school in the social media era. That's why it is a big freaking deal this go around.

RE: CFP selection committee defends leaving out undefeated UCF
UCF has a case to argue as I mentioned earlier in the BIG bowl thread. The CFP rankings were pretty close, particularly toward the top, as to what the AP and Coaches polls showed. I don't believe the selection process is as conspiratorial as some express.

Panel selections will, more often than not, have controversy as to the teams that are picked each year.
It can get exasperated post bowl games because further results are observed. Unless everyone plays the same schedules, which is impossible, during the regular season,
subjectivity and value judgments are ingrained.

I'd prefer not to see human panels doing the absolute determinations. At least the FCS has a more inclusive system. Then, there's the NFL model. It is human judgment, as to the four best vs going with conference champions, with conferences becoming more equivalent in size, scope, etc.

Three big factors that create this dilemma: (a) forced and promoted P5 separation from G5 in multiple dimensions; (b) conference sizes and scheduling vary immensely, and © the profiting interests want the playoffs AND the bowl games. That has been a conflicting element from the get-go.

Yup. The CFP played this completely wrong. Should have just admitted they blew it and "promised" to reassess the way they judge G5's (in other words, do nothing different going forward). Instead--they brainlessly insisted they were right---when everyone in the audience knows they were not. Now they have just exposed themselves to be the arrogant buffoons they are really are and they are rightfully getting called out for it. I guess they just couldnt hide their true nature.
