Exclamation If Tiger football goes undefeated; do we pull a UCF?
And claim a national championship. I say yes. Maybe the AAC can eventually annoy the hell out of the exclusionary P5 and get some inclusion.

RE: If Tiger football goes undefeated; do we pull a UCF?
I'd play it this way: Don't call ourselves National Champs, but go on every talk show, ESPN show, interview, etc., etc., and use it as an argument for expansion of the playoff with an automatic bid going to the AAC, or at least to the top rated non-P5 school.

The argument would hold more water with the AAC delivering two undefeated teams (including a win in whatever NYD bowl we'd win in this hypothetical).

It doesn't change anyone's mind about whether to expand or not, but it could be used as fuel for inclusion when and if playoff expansion occurs.

Go Tigers!

Unlikely

No chance would I support calling ourselves the National Champion unless it included a win over a team like Alabama or Clemson.

It would certainly add fuel to a potential antitrust lawsuit...

I'm all for it! Championship parade down Beale Street. Another Championship parade in April. Then we just call it quits and have a Tiger appreciation parade and party on Beale every Memorial Day weekend to infinity and beyond! We will never have to lose another game!

If the CFP champ is NOT undefeated, I say yes.

RE: If Tiger football goes undefeated; do we pull a UCF?
UCF does not claim to be National Champs, they ARE! The NCAA recognizes them as such, as it is in their record books. Gotta love computer polls.

They are NOT the Playoff Champs, but that isn't what they are claiming. Anyone that doesn't admit that, simply doesn't want to admit the truth of the matter.

Yes, it is the same as some teams claiming a farmer's almanac championship, back when only two major polls were used to determine the champion... but if the NCAA has it in their record books, then it is true.

If Memphis were to get that level, I absolutely would claim it. I like standing on facts. 04-rock

If you don't shout it loud and clear----then you are a part of the power 5 bias BS. UCF had the stones to give a middle finger to the so-called big boys. If you don't make the claim---you are admitting inferiority . SCREW them and their self-proclaimed superiority .

In other words, you are saying we could never claim a nat'l title. AL, Clemson & the like will NEVER play us. That is the very reason the UCF approach has been successful (they have been recognized by the NCAA as a nat'l champ in their yearbook stats & it focuses on the inequity of the CFP.

Yes, I would pull a UCF. It would make the p-5 seem somewhat impotent. Entitlement is earned not given because a real true champion takes on all worthy challengers and prove their worth.

I agree; that doesn’t make sense. If we go undefeated and have a good number of dominating wins over the best teams on our schedule, I will say make our case for the National Championship unless other contender was undefeated and dominated their schedule.

Why the "unless" ? why cut us short -why give us the short end of the stick----pizz on the unfair power 5 BS. Boise and UCF both claimed it---why TIGER high---plastic fork kiddie table surrender ?
