    Their 2019 schedule includes Stanford and Pitt. Not annual powerhouses but any means but perhaps we will hear the end of this nonsense soon - http://fbschedules.com/ncaa/ucf/

    Let UCF in. That way we can settle this debate once and for all...
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    The good news for the defending champs, if you're comparing them to Kentucky schools, is that their strength of schedule matches up favorably with Bellarmine, which doesn't even field a football team, and is only a little shy of the renowned Petrino Dairy Whip toughness gauge.

    Before I even read this these schools are the ones that came to mind when thinking of UCF. Utah was the hot new kid on the block screaming for respect and "they were just as good as the big boys" etc. As you've pointed out, they joined the PAC 12 (which is a pitiful conference btw) can't keep from losing at least three games each year. TCU, though a better go at it than Utah, hasn't proven to be the "you see, we told y'all we were just as good as y'alls big boys".

    UCF is no different and would be no different.

    TCU had five 11-win seasons in six years, including an undefeated season where they won a Rose Bowl.
    They joined the Big 12. They've had three 11-win seasons in seven years, one of which they only got because they played
    14 games (which they never did in that six-year run pre-Big 12). They have no unbeaten seasons, no appearances in the playoff,
    and only once did they have a team anyone considered a possible playoff team.


    Anyone can get up for one game a year. Hell, Auburn does that even in the bad years.

    Dear UCF.

    Be thankful you're ranked that high given you've done nothing, are nothing, and nobody but you cares. But that said, feel free to hold another Mickey Mouse Championship Celebration. If the label fits, wear it!

    Regards,
    Every other college football team

    So you'd rather the committee leave out a more deserving team just to prove a point? No way. Screw UCF - play a real schedule or whine, but they don't deserve squat.

    Get back to me when they play 8+ P5 regular season games. One or two games means nothing. Play a real schedule or shut up.

    I've always thought that would be a good idea.

    The problem with that is twofold. First, it takes the two best G5 teams out of a New Year's six bowl. Then it plainly admits they G5 doen't deserve to be in the CFP. Group of Five rejects both those ideas. Now if the G5 Playoff could raise the kind of money a NY6 bowl could then it might be a different story but that is doubtful.

    But I like the idea if only to shut them up. I can see UCF or Houston vs Boise or Fresno being a pretty good draw but think if it were Temple or Buffalo vs Nevada or ULM.

    I didn’t capture it, but the US NAVY had a great sign aboard the USS CARL VINSON.

    Oh and let me add W Virginia to your list because they were one of the FOUR hot tamales along with Utah, TCU and Louisville. BTW, what has Louisville and W Virginia done since moving up to P5? ACC or B12 championship? Naw, notch yet.
