    I just genuinely dislike every SEC school except UK. Strange coincidence they are in the same conference.

    I'd love to see a 16 game playoff to see how often G5 teams actually would compare.

    That he does the exact same thing

    Like it or love it teams are part of conferences, not independent entities. While it is silly to lose your mind over conference affiliations, it is equally as silly to pretend it doesn’t matter. If it didn’t teams wouldn’t invest millions into it.

    That’s good I’ll give you that one! Haha but it’s still hard to call someone an embarassment when they hold nearly every QB record in the Big 10.

    Not much I can disagree with here. Attrition and depth.

    Where does UCF deserve to finish in the polls? Surely ahead of all non-playoff teams at least.

    Until they play a decent team not in the Big 10.

    Deserve is a very subjective word. I don’t know where they deserve to be but I imagine they will finish behind the 4 playoff teams, Ohio State, and Penn State.

    With how flawed the others have been, I’d be fine with that but around 7-10 seems more fitting.

    Probably should be in front of both of them, but won't be.

    Definitely should be. But, once again, they likely won't get the respect they earned. BTW, I'm not a fan of theirs, but I feel they earned it.

    That’s where the subjectivity comes in.

    I say UCF showed everyone they are worthy of a higher ranking than they were given.
