I live in Orlando and my daughter goes to UCF, but despite my bias I
sure do not see how UCF has an argument for being in the CFP. The
average rank of their opponents this year was 81, and SBNation has
thier SOS as 103. How does 14-0 with that schedule make them have an
argument to be in the CFB? A high school team here was undefeated. Did
that make them college football national champs, or does schedule
matter? I am happy UCF had such a good year, especially after such a
dismal season two years ago, and I'm sad to lose our coach. I
thoroughly enjoyed this season, but let's be realistic.
