    So if they don't. Then does that change your opinion of them? Last year I definitely see why they did that, it honestly even made sense. This year if they don't, does that change your opinion on how they are doing things?

    Which is what the problem has always been with college football IMO. A National Champion should be just that, a National Champion and decided on the field and not by opinion. Which is what college football has done basically its existence.

    Let the 5 P5 Conference Champs be automatically in. If some team somehow upsets a team to win a P5 Conference, then so be it. At least it was done on the field. A team should know exactly what it has to do to be able to play for a title. They shouldn't have to be a 1 lost P5 conference champ and not even get a chance to play for the title. Because human opinion thinks another 1 lost conference champ is better. Have the 5 P5 Conference Champs in and then 3 at large. Which if we have years like this with UCF, then they get their shot. At least this way the National Championship is actually decided on the field, and teams know exactly what they have to do to get in.

    If they hadn’t declined the games against Florida then it may have. After this incident UCF has turned me off of them completely. Their administration and fans are absolutely delusional.

So might as well declare themselves National Champs. The only undefeated team, and beat the team that beat the two teams who did play for the Championship. So yes it did make sense for why they did. Just because no one else has done that before, doesn't mean it didn't make sense.

    I am very happy they did too, because the more controversy every where in college football. The better chance of expanding it to 8.

    It's not an excuse, it's just the truth. That game meant everything to UCF, Auburn not so much.

    Its also the truth that those Auburn players would have been interested and playing hard. Just like its the truth LSU players will be interested and playing hard to try to shut up UCF.

    It makes sense if you ignore the fact they beat absolutely no one throughout the year. With one month to prepare, a lot of teams can knock off a superior opponent under the right circumstances.

    UCF would have still been left out...Clemson, Alabama, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Washington, Notre Dame, Georgia and Michigan would have gotten in.

    UCF knows what they have to do... Significantly beef up their schedule and run the table, just like most everyone else. They just choose to pretend like they want to and don't actually back it up.

    Majority of Auburn players had probably never heard of UCF prior to finding out they were playing. UCF was playing for their mythical title...Auburn was playing out the season. I'm sure once the game started the Auburn players wanted to win...my question would be how seriously did the focus and prepare for the game ahead of time.

    Ah, the good ole conspiracy theory approach. I'm assuming you have some proof that Auburn was excited about playing UCF?

    I tend to use common sense, but that's just me.
