Everyone needs to remember that Bowls were the big hold up.

It's still not a legit Playoff until all 10 Conference Champions are included. Polls are so biased that they need to be taken out of post season.

I like the idea of the 6 conference champions getting an auto bid. Including the 5 P5 winners and then the top non P5 school.

Then picking the next highest ranked 6 schools.

Not perfect, but it's getting better

I don’t see it being much better at all. The G5 conferences are still fighting each other for 1 spot and they will never get an at-large spot.

And the big issue with the G5s going for a single spot is it is really hard to figure out which conference is really better year to year. The AAC got lucky IMO that within the first 3 years of the conference, we won 2 NY6 games, won another later, and NO OTHER conference has won a single NY6 game. So we have enjoyed a 1-2 game advantage vs the other G5s.

You're completely right. And all those AAC teams will now be in the P5.

Yes figuring out the best G5 concern isn't easy, But do you honestly think Coastal Carolina or Liberty, etc. could compete with a top 12 school?? A top 4 school?

Yes.

The biased & corrupt system has lead to self-fulfilling results. A UCFair and level playing UCField would create more parity and better competition.

And yes, CC & Liberty can compete just like how UCF won the 2013 Fiesta Bowl when nobody thought we had a chance.

"UCF's success over the past decade has played a major role in the playoff expanding, while Tulane has reached national prominence only once since leaving the SEC in 1949."
