    My whole problem is that there is a rule that says teams out side the Power 5 cant even have a chance. Thats my whole argument. The power 5 are afraid of losing their.........money not prestige to a "lower" program. How can an upstart coach create a powerful program (i.e. Bobby Bowden at FSU) in todays state of DI football? Why not just take the top 8-16 teams not in the Final four and create a tournament out of that?

    Moving on, I'll recycle my earlier example. If Akron, ECU, FIU, ULL, UMass, Nevada, Wyoming, and Boston College all go undefeated, that should be the CFP?
    Uh, yes, I was. Perhaps you should read the entire thread before you try to stir the pot on page 8.

    And your example is never going to happen and hasn't ever happened in the history of college football so it's irrelevant.

    It's not irrelevant at all to your statement. You said undefeated gets you in. You either support the idea or you don't.

    If stirring the pot is questioning your hot take, guilty.

    There have been 3 non power 5 schools go undefeated since 2000 and all 3 deserved a shot. It's as simple as that. Utah, Boise State and UCF.

    Okay, so now I'm confused. Either UCF deserved to be in the playoff this year or they didn't. You keep changing your mind.

    And SOS doesn't matter in your "undefeated gets you in" criteria, correct?

    I haven't changed my mind one time. Like Deuce, your haste to stir the pot and be a thorn in other posters' sides leaves you confused as to what is actually being said.

    You just said UCF deserved a shot. But earlier you said they didn't deserve to be in a 4 team playoff....If they don't deserve to be in the playoff as currently constructed, they don't deserve a shot. It's as simple as that.

    Again, if you'd read the thread instead of chiming in on page 8 and 9, you'd realize that we are talking about a hypothetical 8-team playoff. And yes, UCF would deserve a spot in that hypothetical playoff system.

    So in a made up, alternate universe, they deserve a shot. Cool. Just not in reality.

    And the thread is only 3 pages long...

    You really need to put more context to your post then. future and I were having a discussion about automatic bids in an 8 team scenario. Your post did not reference anything about any scenario and just came off as a no matter what comment. Hell I was involved in the conversation and didn't understand you were talking about in an 8 team playoff.
