Counts as much as UCF's national championship.

The UCF National Championship claim upset a lot of the privileged elite in college football, but it also put them on notice and exposed the Power 5 Cartel for what their national championship is; an invitational limited only to Power 5 teams. Here we are two years later and UCF bitch-slapped another Power 5 team this past weekend.

I agree

 

The CFP system is a joke, they may as well rename it the power 5 Championship and create a group of 5 Championship bracket (so like a open division D1 and D2 form of bracket)

 

I'll show some people what i mean by this tomorrow ;)

Nah 

 

From reading my Twitter the school who took most offense to UCF was that school in college in Gainesville 

 

Maybe complaining runs in Alachua DNA just like those tropical depressions at the high school level :D:D:D

Maybe.  Gator fans are delusional but so are most fans including the ones that claim fake titles

If you've ever watched the Paul Feinbaum Show on SEC Network, in reality the Bama Fan Club Show, you would have seen a very upset host and most of his followers condemned UCF, and they continue to condemn UCF today. Kirk Herbstreet on ESPN mocked UCF at the time, but doesn't anymore. On College Football Final (ESPN), Joey Galloway stated just yesterday that UCF deserves to be in the conversation for the CFP.

Many schools, including a couple of elite SEC programs, have claimed "fake" titles over the years, Bama being one of them. I'm a long time Gator fan, but I'm not delusional enough to believe the Gators could beat the UCF team of the past three years.

They use to not have national championships so you had to claim fake ones.  It’s all good.  I’m claiming my fake pick em contest winner championship. Don’t hate 

Yeah but most those schools claiming fake titles usually do it at end of the season

 

Not the beginning LMAO

They still don't have a National Championship game; it's a Power 5 Invitational. This is almost as ridiculous as when professional baseball wouldn't allow black players to play in the "major leagues". They still claimed the title of "World Champions". You can't be a national champion if you exclude half the teams that play your sport.

Almost as ridiculous as UCF fans thinking they won a National title.  If they blow everyone out they will get a chance this year.

You think so?

 

I personally think the fact they aren't in a power 5 conference (or have a bunch of Championships from a million years ago like Notre Dame) they will not be given a chance no matter how much they win, they could beat Clemson and bama by 35 and would still get left out by the NCAA, oh I mean playoff committee LMAO

In 2017 they barely beat South Florida and Memphis the last two games of the year.  It was also there first time going undefeated.  They didn’t deserve a shot.  Last year if the QB doesn’t get hurt they actually would have had a chance to make it.  Not saying they would have but the chances would have been far greater.  I feel if they run the tables this year convincingly they get in.  Problem is they have no really good win on the schedule.  They need some help.

I have to agree with ColumbiaFan. UCF doesn't belong to the Club. Will be on the outside looking in and, well... you get the point. Only way in is to join that exclusive club when another team gets the boot and there is an opening, and I don see that happening unless Taggert stays at FSU...

Well I feel like last year they deserved it more than Notre Dame but the NCAA won't allow a group of 5 team to get in because they want all 4 teams in playoffs to be big brands to ensure they maximize profit in the 3 games during the playoffs

 

 

They don't want to risk a group of 5 team making the finals because it would mean lower viewership (and money) which is another reason they are hesitant to add more teams to playoffs

 

The more teams involved the less control the NCAA has over who makes finals which can guarantee them the largest profit

Maybe but Stanford does have a prestige to it so perhaps that may help them (even though this Stanford team isn't that good)

They were the only undefeated team in the nation that year and they beat the only team (Auburn) to beat both participants in the Power 5 Invitational. As far as UCF fans are concerned, the Power 5 Invitational was the Consolation Game that year. The Power 5 Cartel will find a reason not to include UCF in the CFP this year; that's a sure bet.

they did not beat Auburn before it was selected.  No reason to select UCF that year. If they had beaten Auburn in a regular season game they probably would have been selected.  Play a harder schedule.  Take your 2 for 1's.  Or complain about it until you get a trophy.  That's the new generation.

Again they could beat bama and Clemson during season and the NCAA (playoff committee formed to pay for Mark Emmett to buy a 5th yacht) will not let UCF in no matter who they beat

 

 

It's a money thing

"they did not beat Auburn before it was selected."  That statement apparently shows that the selection committee for the Power 5 Invitational didn't do their homework. It was easier to disqualify a Group of 5 team than to have the courage to put them in the Invitational.

"If they had beaten Auburn in a regular season game they probably would have been selected."  If your statement was true, why wasn't UCF given an invitation the next year after completing another undefeated season? No need for your to respond, the answer is obvious.

"Take your 2 for 1's".  UCF doesn't play 2 for 1's; it implies inferiority. Maybe you should suggest teams like FSU and Tennessee play 1 for 2's with Group of 5 teams. Some of the Power 5 could also try that with FCS schools that have taken them to the woodshed this season.

Have you noticed the trend this year where each week the so-called Power 5 teams lose to lowly Group of 5 teams?

Save the reason's why UCF isn't deserving for the excuse thread... 

NCAA recognizes UCF's national championship in addition to Alabama's

UCF, after all the pomp and circumstance, is a national champion.

According to the 2018 record book released last week, the Knights are listed - with Alabama as a team that finished the season No. 1.

UCF, which finished 13-0 last season with a win over Auburn in the Peach Bowl, finished atop the Colley-Matrix, one of the computer rankings recognized by the NCAA.

The NCAA, per The Orlando Sentinel, recognizes the teams that finish atop major polls, including the Colley-Matrix.

The Knights and their undefeated season have been a storyline all offseason since the Peach Bowl win over Auburn.

Because they didn’t deserve it.  They lost to LSU in a bowl game when half LSU’s team had quit and entered the draft.

Oh wait you told me to not respond.

    • American posted on Twitter they will be announcing a hire on Thursday.  American Heritage Delray decided to move in a different direction from Keith Hindsley, who went 31-25 in five seasons. The school has promoted DC Brian Sheridan. Sheridan has coached NJ HSFB and collegiate ball. Locally, he spent time as DC at Chaminade Madonna and University School ahead of his AHD stint.  Naples is also open. 
    • From my understanding of education finances and ethics (i.e. redbook and certain allotments given by the state), Boosters that are governed, audited, or organized by a school official or within the school's county system cannot and will not give money to coach's because of misuse of funds that are (most often in booster language) allotted for and donated on behalf of the students it should benefit. If the booster has, within their bylaws, that their are to be no members that are part of the "local county" school board employee or "any other county" school board employee- then and only then should it be possible and allowed by the state.   A large piece of this fancy pants language has to do with the FHSAA, and most of it's member schools, is still governed by state legislation and/or the same part of the government that directs state mandated testing and education laws and adjustments. If this booster money (the same booster that is associated with members of the local county school system) were to be allocated towards coaches it would then be considered "for profit" which is pretty much the complete opposite of public education. Kind of hard to read, kind of hard to digest, maybe someone can simplify what I'm trying to put out there.
    • This year was first year Lincoln wasn't district champ since I believe 98 or 99 (when they shared a district with Columbia)
    • Central , Escambia. Um there. 
    • It was Godby in 2012....what a depressing loss that was.  Wakulla beat them late in the season and was 11- 0 and ranked number 1 in 5A.  They lost the rematch in the second round 14-7 and Godby went on the win the state championship.  That was one Wakulla let get away...after finishing as runner-up to Norland in 2011 I thought they would get that championship in 2012.  That one still stings...
