Did they deserve to be in the final 4? No. Did they deserve to have a chance to win a national championship? Definitely. System is still broken. Eight team playoff.

James Madison, of the Colonial Athletic Association, went 14-0. They are being overlooked as well. WTF?

Frost bailed out on UCF and took his whole staff with him. So he can stfu and move on.

Say what you want, but that was not the Auburn that beat Georgia and Alabama. That was team that was drained by the season and losing the SEC Championship Game. They mailed it in and were ready for the season to end.

Meh, They beat an auburn team that played over it's head for a couple weeks and that played two teams down with numerous injuries. Ucf seems like a fine team but the physical toll taken in the SEC, BIG and acc is something they don't really deal with in the American. Let's see if he tries to lobby for the G5 at Nebraska.

Bowl Games on neutral site with lots of rest and a long time to prepare, anything can happen. UCF play auburn at auburn and see what happens. Play them after you a couple tough opponents prior. This is like boise st. too me. They have a good team, but when you don't have to work hard to get there, you won't receive the recognition you deserve.

This is actually no different than some of the championships that Bama claims!

LSU lost to Troy, so by that rationale UCF is a much better team than LSU.

UCF would destroy LSU. They also would've never considered hiring Orgeron.

I understand his argument, but he needs to have some awareness that there is no perfect system. Yes, his team is an example of how the current system is flawed. However, it is better than the BCS, and hopefully more teams are added to the playoffs in time.

Can't wait to hear him lobby for a higher ranking or better bowl for Nebraska, over a directional school, because you know "better conference tougher schedule".

UCF was a nice story....however, if they had to compete in the SEC, they would have lost 2-3 games......

Impossible to say that. LSU lost to Troy, so you never know they could have gone undefeated.

Let's see how he does at Nebraska in a pretty good conference.

If UCF is so good, why is he leaving to coach Nebraska? Play cupcakes, win cupcakes.

Nebraska - Alma Mater, bigger stage for success... money not the driving factor here... UCF was reportedly willing to go up to 4M + bonuses annually to keep him. No state income tax in Florida and easier recruiting life would easily have made that a reasonable trade off.

So he didn't have enough confidence in his team to talk smack before the game so he runs his mouth after it.

Its called class and staying humble, not seen very much in football.

Nice job auburn. You just legitimized a team that nearly lost to SMU...

When you play in a "lower" conference and you are a strong team, good OOC schools are very reticent to schedule you. It's a no win situation for them. Not sure what can be done to change this, but expanding the playoff will help.

They were considered to be a strong team prior to the season? They outperformed everyone's expectations even with an easy schedule. Kudos to them but even scheduling mid tier programs would have helped their case.

They had the ~103rd ranked Strength of Schedule (per Bill Connelly's metrics)... even if the GT game had been played and won, they just didn't even come close to filling up the schedule with games that were perceived as challenging. I love an underdog story, but this is like Marshall going 13-0 and claiming they deserved a shot at the BCSNC. The schedules are made up enough in advance that they weren't getting turned down... they were 0-12 two years ago and just made a bowl last year... they simply weren't looking to schedule extra-hard games... they needed the lift of a softer schedule to change the program direction. Not hard to figure out.

He had no clue his team could beat Auburn or he would have talked them up all year.... Now, he's beaming with confidence and shouting from the rooftops. Can't have your cake and eat it too.

If you want the respect you think you deserve, schedule tougher teams. Beating Memphis twice and playing a cake walk schedule isn't exactly going to get you support or respect that they probably deserved. It's that simple.

I don't think you understand how some of this works. UCF I'm sure gets turned away from most bigger institutions on the fact that they are typically a strong team but lack name recognition.... a loss to them is a horrible loss to a bigger university, therefor keeping most big universities from scheduling them. They just beat Auburns ass

Who were Alabama's, OSU, etc out of conference games? Dude just trucked Auburn who Trucked Bama AND Georgia. But your point is important...it proves that the ranking committee "percieves" who is ranked where...and not the talent of the team that is UNDEFEATED.
