There has never been anything official about the CFB Playoff or the BCS. If you go undefeated, you can claim anything

Boise State has won a few National Championships as well 02-13-banana03-cloud9

Personally, I'd go with '66, 11-0, defending NC, began season as #1, won the bowl game where #1 and #2 didn't even play.

It's what happens when millennials come of age. They all want a trophy, and even worse believe they deserve it!

Except Tulane went undefeated

Actually, there is something official about the CFP, as Aresco said the other day, the CFP is the process the 10 FBS conferences and ND contractually agreed to to select their national champion.

Also, you don't have to be undefeated to claim anything, you just made that up. If Troy claims a national title and wants to hold a parade, you couldn't stop them either.

Silly, the NCAA isn't on any firmer contractual/legal footing than the CFP, so both are official.

Like it or not, the winner of tonight's game will the formal, official champion of all of FBS, UCF included. Just the way it is. 07-coffee3

NCAA championships are official

http://www.ncaa.com/history/football/fbs

The NCAA doesn't name, denote, sanction, adjudicate, or officially recognize FBS (highest level) football national championships. It never has in its entire history and still does not. FBS level of play is, and always has been, outside of the NCAA's championship purview.

All the NCAA has done is list the selections of other entities (often termed "selectors" and meaning things like the AP, Coaches' poll, FWAA, CFRA, BCS, etc) in its records books or other websites. The website you linked isn't complete or official, nor contemporaneous.

The closest thing to an official NCAA list is in its Official Football Records Book where it lists all of the selections of national champions over the history of the sport that have been deemed to have been made by "major" (e.g. national in scope) selectors over the years. The selectors that were deemed to be "major" on this list weren't adjudicated by the NCAA, but were provided by a pair of college football historians. And because of that, the listings could be considered to be incomplete and subject to those historians' own personal scholarship on the topic. Further, the NCAA has actually mucked up some of listings in its records book for more recent years after the original compilation was done.

In the sports where the NCAA sponsors championships, those NCAA champions are ubiquitously recognized as national champions simply because there is no legitimate competing awarder of national championships, not to mention recognition of official NCAA championship results is mandated by institutional membership in the organization. Sports where the NCAA does not sponsor championship (such as FBS football, boxing, polo, ultimate, etc) are awarded based on whoever claims to award a national championship in those sports. Typically, there is just one such organization, which is usually the organizing organization for that sport. However, for most of college football's history, there were multiple organizations naming a national champion every year, and that is still the case, but most "major" ones have been consolidated via contract or precedent to follow the College Football Playoff results, and prior to that, the BCS results. Current and past FBS football it is analogous to college basketball prior to the NCAA starting its own tournament in 1939.

I agree with this. The NCAA does not denote/sanction/formally recognize any FBS champions, ever.

That said, those who say that because the NCAA doesn't do this that these championships are all 'mythical' are mistaken. BCS and CFP titles are not mythical, they are the contractually-agreed on champions of all the member institutions, in the same way that the Super Bowl winner is the agreed-on champion of all the NFL franchises.

BCS and CFP titles are not mythical, they are the contractually-agreed on champions of all the member institutions, in the same way that the Super Bowl winner is the agreed-on champion of all the NFL franchises.

Whether one agrees or not about what the NCAA does or doesn't do in regards to football championships doesn't matter. It is simply fact.

There is also no such thing as a "mythical" national championship. It is a misemployment of the term that came to colloquially mean a non-governing body awarded championship (e.g. non-NCAA awarded). Simply, all FBS level championships have been named by third-party organizations or individuals that claim an expert knowledge of the sport. Those claims have later been adjudicated by various historians. Anyone is free to agree or disagree with the third-party selectors and/or the adjudicators and hold their own opinions on legitimacy of championships, but they aren't "mythical" (fictitious or made up) as they have been awarded by some recognized third-party selector(s).

However, a school claiming a championship that was never awarded by any recognized third-party selector could certainly be deemed a "mythical" championship as it is reflective of a more accurate definition of the term. Any school can make a claim to a championship in anything (unless their governing body forbids it, which isn't the case in FBS football), but such a school is far from a recognized selector or historical authority and certainly cannot claim any sort of fair adjudication. In essence, there are two things here: selections by third-parties and claims by the institutions themselves. There are certainly some selections that aren't recognized by the schools to which they were awarded, but it is awful hard (if not impossible) to justify a institutional claim to a championship without it being based on some third-party selector.

The CFP, and previously the BCS and Bowl Alliance, are simply selectors made up of committees that make picks, not unlike other historical major selectors. The major difference is that they are able to create on-the field matchups which their historical predecessors could not. But their selections are no less a result of their own preferred methodologies than were the selections of their predecessors also based on their own preferred methodologies. Another difference from their predecessors is that their championship is much more ubiquitously recognized. In a way, the historical progression of the historian-organizational-mathematical selectors, polls, Bowl Alliance, BCS, and CFP could be thought of as march towards unifying championship belts in boxing.

In theory, the NCAA is no different in naming champions in the sports that it sponsors because it chooses the format and methodology of naming a champion. But all of the participating member institutions agree to championship format ahead of time, and the crowning of champions is ubiquitously recognized by its membership institutions as a condition of enjoying that membership. Add to that, no one has seriously challenged the NCAA's authority to name a national champion in its sponsored sports, since say, the late 1940s when it was challenged by the NIT, or the early 1980s by the AIAW.

In the end, the perceived legitimacy of a national championship is simply a condition of its popular or contemporaneous recognition. The danger is as one gets farther removed from the history of this process, as with a lot of history, the bias of recentism typically creeps in.

RE: Get your 1998 Tulane National Champions T-Shirt!
True but the dam is busting as far as the most powerful conferences ways of limiting access to the championship. It's the NCAA's fault to begin with for not instituting some kind of playoff in the early days. Eventually, chamber of commerce exhibitions (i.e. bowl games), which used to be exactly that before actually meaning anything to pollsters, became the way seasons were defined. You didn't even have to be in the top 2 or 3 to win the national title all of a sudden.

I agree with everything you say here, the only thing I'd add is that the CFP is the same as the NCAA with respect to the bolded part: Just as all Division I hoops schools have agreed to the championship format (the NCAA tournament) ahead of time, so too have all the FBS schools agreed to the CFP championship format ahead of time as well.
