    5 + 1 + 1 = 7

    There will be 2 at-large entries, for a total of 8.

    I disagree -

    I think it is turning a lot of folks against them that would of normally supported them

    I don't think so. If anything it's just made the arrogant P5ers more vocal. They never supported a UCF-type school before, and never will. And some fans are seizing this opportunity to lobby for an 8-team playoff, citing UCF as an example of the travesty of the current 4-team format. UCF is just a convenient tool to be used.

    Its only making Alabama-Georgia fans mad that someone will not recognize them as national champions.

    Pat Forde had an idea pitched to him (I don't like it as much as mine )

    https://sports.yahoo.com/heres-radic...022518359.html
    16 team playoff

    "P5" conference all go to 14 (with ND joining ACC - 15) - Each "P5" conference is split into divisions. Division winners advance to playoff (10 teams).
    "G5" conferences play 11 game schedule (main part I don't like) with conference championship on weekend after Thanksgiving. Champs advance to playoffs (5 teams).
    1 at-large team advances of highest rated not above (would have been Bama this year).

    Normal championship weekend would be 1st round of playoffs at highest seeds.
    Quarterfinals the next weekend at highest seed.
    Semifinals/Finals like current setup.
    This would cut off a 12th regular season game for all G5 teams, which to most is $ game - now probably averaging $1 million.
    These schools can't afford to cut $1 million from their budget and I don't think the $ from CFP would be made up.

    We really appreciate this writeup on CFT but we just need to clarify that we are NOT affiliated with the school. We are an alumni-owned store just blocks from campus. #rollwave#nationalchamps98

    The Big10 and Pac12 getting shut out of the playoff will be the cause of any future expansion. IMO.

    Re: Thoughts on UCF as national champ?

    Guess you guys forgot about the worst NCAAF champions, ever.

    The 1984 BYU Cougars won a WAC league that was far far worst than the AAC this year.
    Out of conference was Pitt, Baylor, Tulsa and Utah State. Pathetic for national champion.



    SCHEDULE/RESULTS
    at #3 Pittsburgh W 20-14..................(Pitt finished 3-7-1)
    Baylor W 47-13.................................(Baylor finished 5-6)
    Tulsa W 38-15 ..................................(Tulsa finished 6-5)
    at Hawaii W 18-13.............................(Hawaii finished 7-4)
    at Colorado State W 52-9....................(CSU finished 3-8)
    Wyoming W 41-38..............................(Wyoming finished 6-6)
    at Air Force W 30-25..........................(AF finished 8-4)
    at New Mexico W 48-0.......................(NM finished 4-8)
    UTEP W 42-9....................................(UTEP finished 2-9)
    San Diego State W 34-3.....................(SDSU finished 4-7-1)
    at Utah W 24-14...............................(Utah finished 6-5-1)
    Utah State W 38-13...........................(Utah State finished 1-10)
    Holiday Bowl
    Michigan W 24-17.............................(Michigan finished 6-6, sixth in the Big Ten)

    UCF's resume is far superior to this.
    There is precedence, so, UCF should be National Champions!

    The Big 10 has been shut out of the playoffs for two straight years!
