  1. Long time no talk jaws, hope you're doing well. Ohio State played a hell of a game today.
  2. Sup huskers, I came here to be miserable with you.

      Ha ha!  Good to see you.  I'm still in shock over that thing that happened in Champaign last week.

      Good to see you all too, I'm doing well, not considering football but so goes life

      No worries, you'll have plenty to cheer about in a few weeks....

  3. So you're quoting the Nebraska Football's official twitter? Ok, I'm not a Nebraska fan so that carries no weight with me, I don't care what their twitter says. They're also pretty far from being objective on this issue. I have a very clear conscience on this particular issue. UCF had a heck of a year, but it was not CFP worthy. Good luck in the future, I think you all made a great hire and I'll be rooting for your program.
  4. What? That just simply is not true. UCF played Ohio State in 2012 and Stanford in 2015. Just this year AAC teams played games against Oklahoma, TCU, and two games against Notre Dame. Last year AAC teams had games against Penn State, Florida State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oklahoma....and in both of those seasons I'm just listing P5 opponents that ended the regular season in the CFP top 15. UCF and AAC teams definitely do have the ability to schedule quality P5 teams but instead you scheduled Georgia Tech and Maryland. You have nobody to blame or complain to but yourself. They make way more money that way. If I'm a large school and I book an FCS school for a one off and pay them $1 million I get to keep whatever profit from ticket sales I have except for that $1 million, and then I get to do it all over again next year. If I schedule a 1 for 1 with an AAC school I'm loosing an entire game's profits for that away year. It doesn't make financial sense. It has nothing to do with being afraid to play you and everything to do with money. Your solution for that is to go to them or schedule neutral site games, you're in Florida, there are plenty of good neutral site venues and three prestigious power programs within a few hours drive of your campus. Make it work. The bottom line is that you guys went 6-6 last year as a G5 school. String together a 10+ win seasons and play some good teams and your chances improve. You did not deserve to be in the playoff this year.
  5. I'm not saying G5 teams have no chance, just that they have very little chance. If you want a shot at that chance you have to have multiple seasons of sustained success and a willingness to schedule quality P5 opponents as your out of conference opponents (see what Boise and TCU used to do). GT and Maryland are two tiers beneath what you would need to schedule. Most of the criticism was based on SoS, I saw very little of that talk you're citing. I'm sure it happened and you can link it, but at the end of the day they're the same argument and it's still valid. You didn't play nearly a difficult enough schedule. ...and of course there's a P5 bias, look at the committee composition. G5 schools/conferences have nobody at the table. It was your Super Bowl and their consolation bowl. Malzahn has a history of under-performing and coaching letdown games, even in a good season like they had this year they still had Mercer and LSU games...but congrats just the same.
  6. And your strength of schedule was terrible. Your ranking should have been higher and you played a great game today but you did not deserve a playoff spot.
  7. UCF still didn't deserve a playoff spot. It's been posted several times today.
  8. 8 team playoff here we come

      They're most assuredly not. Never ever should 2 teams from the same conference get into the playoffs together, especially when you have a single undefeated team in the nation left out.

      Alabama got in because it's still Nick Saban led Alabama.  Even though they don't deserve it, they could still win the whole thing.  That's the justification.  It's a legitimate reason....for some.

      But it's not. Even Ohio State last year felt dirty.

  9. Can we stop talking about Fitzgerald? Not trying to be a jerk but it's sort of off-topic.
