Funny how this poll represents Ohio state fans vs non osu fans.

If this was reversed and OSU won it I guarantee none of these posters would vote for UCF. Funny how biases come out

Another thing I notice is this expanded playoff ideas seem more talked about the years Ohio St does not make it. This year it is really on fire, with the 2 SEC teams making it in, and then making it to the finals

Except the commissioners of the P5 conferences all said this week they are happy with the currrent format. But hey keep debating about it for the next 8 years. When osu doesn’t lose to Iowa or lose the biggest game of the year at home they might get in, if not they sit and watch.

It's just been progressive since the playoff format started. Has nothing to do with whether or not OSU makes it as it is not just their fan base that is talking about it.

No kidding, but their fan base talks about it more the years they did not make it in

Claiming a title is brilliant marketing by UCF IMO. They have something like 65,000 students (largest school in the country?) and this is a great way to boost their applicant pool and applicant quality.

As for on the field, I think they deserved a shot but likely wouldn't have won against either of the teams that played last night. I actually think their offense could put some points up against anyone, but their defense would get torched minus the plays where their athletic front four get QB pressure.

co-champs.... really? no there is only one national champion

Now I have always been a supporter of the Group of 5 and previously the non-AQ... but with a four team system there was not a spot for UCF with their resume

but to be fair.. a good debate could be made because UCF beat Auburn and Aub beat Alabama pretty handily...

This is EXACTLY why there needs to be an 8 team playoff
All conference champs from the AQ
Highest Ranked group of 5 Champ (if in the Top 20 OR ranked ahead of the lowest ranked AQ Champ)
-if the above criteria is not met, then the spot becomes an at-large
Then 2-3 at large spots to the best remaining teams

best fix... right there no question

You question there being co-champs then go on to make multiple points that support the idea. Interesting

Sucks that the big boys can’t have a true playoff like every other division in college football. I think an 8 team playoff is the best we’ll ever get with all the bowl tie ins and what not. Teams like TCU in 2014, Stanford and Ohio State in 2015, and UCF this year could’ve very well won championships, as they were playing their best ball at the end of the season.

A one loss OSU, weak sched but undefeated UCF beat that one loss on a neutral field because they weren't given the chance to beat OSU directly? You bet I'd vote a left out UCF.

How would they do against a team that beat both Georgia and Alabama?

OSU fans along with every other fan base are talking about it more. I bet UCF's fans are talking about it more too.

I hear it more from the Ohio St. fan base, then any other team. Not saying no other fan base does it

Sounds conclusive. I'm sure your opinion isn't biased.

Alabama is the national champion. I am a die hard fan of tOSU and as many say it was what it was. I think the Tide had an advantage of not playing in a league championship game but what goes around, comes around. Can't wait to see what next season brings!!

other fan bases do it, but not to the extent of the delusional osu fan base. they behave as if the playoffs are a birthright and any national championship won by any team not named osu is not valid
