    No one really knows what an 8-team playoff would look like. But over the past several years the individuals in the media who have talked about it the most - Brett McMurphy and Tim Brando - believe that for political reasons it will include the 5 P5 champions, the highest ranked G5 champion, and 2 at-large bids.

    For years on his SiriusXM show Brando said the only reason the playoff wasn't initially at 8 was because the presidents of one conference, the Pac 12, wouldn't go along with it. He believed we would get much closer to 8 becoming a reality when the Pac 12 was left out of the 4 team field.

    Expand to (8) and a team like UCF would be in the playoff with control of their destiny on the field. Otherwise the debate never ends. Heck even at (8) their will be outliers. Mike Leach for NCAA commissioner!!

    Well, the PAC 12 and the Big Ten were both left out this year. Perhaps that will stoke some fires?

    No that would be the rule breaking "death penalty" Mustangs of SMU and the Thug staff and players of the Miami Hurricanes of the 70's and 80's.

    I don't support it -

    Solely because Boise, Hawaii and TCU had done it before...

    UCF did NOTHING new....

    Espn compared the BCS computer rankings to the way the committee had them ranked. If this had been left up to the computers like it was just few years ago, UCF would have been 9th and still out of the playoff even at 8 teams. The interesting thing is the BCS computer rankings and the committee had the same Top 8, just a different order. They have talked about this the last couple of days on Golic and Wingo.

    Human polls would never have ranked them #1 for a one off year. Like Dwayne said its been done before, as well.

    Hawaii got mauled in their bowl game. And they played 2 FCS teams. So take them off the list.

    But I would've gladly supported a NC claim by 98 Tulane, 99 Marshall, 06 Utah, & 2010 TCU.

    I think this is mainly drawing attention to UCF - which is good for UCF.
    Also it has people talking about change. I don't think any change comes until current contract expires - or will be a few years from now. It won't be 2018.

    If they had any poll recognize them as #1 by the end of the season, I suppose they can claim themselves one as well. And I wouldnt mind it at all if they did.

    The P5 fans are going nuts over the notion that UCF even gets a mention....

    What's funny is some of the Ohio State fans are fanning the flames, just to aggravate the Bama fans. They are all so full of themselves, it's hilarious. They are all arrogant pricks, really. All of 'em!

    This has been all the P5 pundits mantra all along. Sure they can beat one team but can they play a full SEC, B1G, ACC etc schedule? Who's to say Memphis or Houston, South Florida, Navy aren't equivalent games. It's not whether they can play those P5 teams every week (they can't because they are not in those conferences and their own schedules won't allow it), but what does the rest of the teams on their schedule do against the P5 teams week after week? If AAC or WAC or CUSA teams are consistently collectively beating their P5 opponents then doesn't their schedule compare to the P5 conference schedules. This is the reason we have to root for our own conference mates when they play the P5 schools.

    If UCF wants to play for a national championship they should buy themselves into a Power 5 conference like Louisville did. They have over 60,000 students and tons of money. They will never get into a playoff as a member of the AAC. Too many losers in that conference, i.e. Tulane.
