Thread: Hmmm, an 8 team P5 playoff now being talked about

    SOS boys, your OOC schedule better enhance your overall SOS. Appy in OOC games beats 2 P5 but because they play in SB that kills their SOS. No G5 as things stand now will make the playoffs because the committee will pull out their SOS card and end the discussion debate. What do you think the knock on UCF was, hint SOS.

    Playing in the SunBelt does hurt, but you gotta do more than beat a 4-8 and 6-6 P5. And UCF’s OOC SOS was a joke. They didn’t deserve to be in the playoffs either year.

    You know how Boise State got into the top 5 in 2009? It sure as heck wasn't because the WAC was any good that season. They got that high because they beat a team that won the Pac-10. They didn't have any other Power 5 teams on the schedule that year.

    App would have been AT LEAST #15 if they ran the table this year and hadn't lost to us. The week we beat them, there were a lot of teams ahead of them that lost and they would have simply been ahead of the other G5 teams.

    As it is, they clawed back into the Top 20.

    SOS is certainly an argument but going undefeated in the Sun Belt isn't as easy a task as it sounds. How often has that happened for the champion of the conference ?

    The SoS argument is dead and should be for any GS fan.

    Look at the difference between our schedule and App's.

    Who fared better this year?

    Heck, App isn't even as good as they were last year but because they have 2 lower-tier P5s instead of Penn State they can finish ranked.

    I believe every P5 in the country would have to have 3 loses for an undefeated G5 to even sniff the playoffs in the current system regardless of schedule.

    2017 UCF had a win over #16 and #22 and were #12 at the end of the season. Ahead of them were zero undefeateds, five 1 loss, five 2 loss, and a 3 loss. #13 was a 4 loss.

    2018 UCF had a win over #19 and were #8 at the end of the season. Ahead of them were three undefeateds, two 1 loss, and two 2 loss. #9 was a 3 loss.

    In their Access Bowl with a redshirt freshman QB playing for their injured starter, they lost by one score to an LSU team that dominated a UGA team that ended the season at #5 and many were arguing deserved a spot in the playoffs. As time expired, one of the announcers....one who was likely arguing for UGA to be in the playoffs...said with a touch of snark for which I would have enjoyed punching him in the throat "....and UCF proves they don't belong in the playoffs." That bit should say it all for anyone who thinks the G5 has "a chance" in the current system because it's the attitude of a lot of the people who make the choices.

    Oh, and UCF only got as high as the did in 2018 because of where they started. So a G5 has to also do really good the year before the year they get a chance. When pollsters do **** like put a ****ing 4-8 Nebraska team in the top 25.....

    And this is why I hope things change when it goes to 8 teams. Right now there is ZERO reason for a G5 to have a tough OOC schedule unless you are going for playoffs or bust. If App has LSU on their schedule this year instead of South Carolina they wouldn’t have even been in the discussion.

    Right now if you are the AAC champions you are basically guaranteed the Access Bowl unless you screw up and schedule a tough OOC opponent. So they are going to take the sure thing and not risk it.

    GSU Spread Option FOOTBALL - out weighed, but never outplayed
    The T-Option is the powerful ground game ever devised & the FLEX is the best way to run it.
    If I want your opinion & don't like it I'll tell you what it should be.

    GSU 10 wins over UCFs 1 win during our 11 game series. Just wanted to say that.
