Not as bad as USC getting an AP championship trophy in 2003 even though we were 6 years removed from giving AP trophies.

It's always easy to spot people that have never played the sport competitively.

re: UCF will hang a National Championship banner
Champions from mid majors have been winning these bowl games for some time now (BCS + New Years 6):

Boise (3x)
Utah (2x)
UCF (2x incl this year)
TCU (while in MWC)
Houston

Last year, Wisconsin barely beat Western Michigan.

The extra bowl game was added to the BCS following the 2005 season. That means that a mid major has won 10 big bowl games in 12 years. Thats almost one per year. It's commonplace and they deserve a shot at the playoff if they're undefeated.

Furthermore, looks to me like the big boys lose a lot of these games. The sample is getting too large to keep passing these P5 losses as a lack of motivation.

Yeah, but Hawaii didn't do good that one time...

I think this points to motivation being a huge advantage in these games.

Yep. Hawaii proves that P5 teams are never motivated in these games.

In 1970, Texas lost in the Cotton Bowl. They still claim a national title that year.

Why wouldn't they? It was AP or Coaches.

Good for them, why not? Still wish Auburn would have done this after 2004.

If we were fairly ranked in the 5-8 range going into the peach bowl I'd think this was a weak move. But I'm cool with our AD going guns blazing after the #12 ranking.

I don't have a problem with it...Bama claims numerous fake championships, so I think it's only fair.

The AP still awards a trophy. So do the Coaches.

Except it wasn’t subjective as it took in rankings and SOS and preseason stuff
