Absolutely. They had every right to be in the playoff. It's real simple for the schools that want to be in the playoff - DON'T LOSE. The fact that a smaller conference team simply cannot make the playoff is absurd.

the system is slanted toward the big conferences but should always take into account an unbeaten team from anywhere. UCF was not given the respect that they deserve and now we have two SEC teams and a national championship that nobody cares about.

I think any team in the FBS that goes undefeated and is the only undefeated team in the FBS should automatically seeded in the playoffs even if it's the 4th seed.

The evidence is pretty strong that UCF deserved to be in the playoff, having defeated Auburn, the team which beat both of the teams playing for the NC.

Invitational Playoffs are not real Playoffs, Ohio State and UCF should have been in, everyone says their schedule was weak, then let that show in the playoffs

Playoffs should be 8 Teams and not 4 Teams. All Power 5 Conf champs plus best records after that.

OU and Georgia scored over 100 combined in their game. Looked more like a track meet than a football game. I do not consider any team a #1 contender with defenses that give up that many points. Clemson couldn't score a TD, Only Bama looked like a #1 and I hate saying that. who's left? UCF

Considering that one of the teams that is playing for the national championship didnt even win the conference. NCAA needs to look at the other levels of football for palyoffs

It is all hindsight since they beat Auburn, but with hindsight being 20/20, yeah, they might be the best team in the country.

The current system is flawed, eliminating the possibility of unlikely, outlier contenders whose merit is proven most at the crushing end of a season -- like UCF.

UCF beat every team they faced, they did not pick their division.... The two teams in playoffs both have losses... Alabama did not win their division or their conference... This is favortisim towards the SEC... excludes teams who earned their right to be there.

The Current system is Bull, any team that is undefeated by this point in the season should have instant consideration. The system needs to be fixed.

UCF should share a split national championship with the AL - GA winner!

But wasn’t realistic. Let’s be honest. Even tho all Husker nation wanted a UCF win, very few thought there was a real chance. I knew they were good and had heart and great coaching but if a lot of us are honest we hoped UCF would be competitive.

Good team with great story, but no early Georgia Tech victory hurt their chances to get in Top 10 earlier.

Not under the current system. However, expand the playoff to 6 teams and make the New years 6 qualifier, one of the 6 teams if they are undefeated. Unless they are undefeated, the schedules of those teams will never come close to being strong enough to justify inclusion with a loss.

I believe UCF could have played with/beat any of the four playoff teams. But the strength of schedule just wasn't there to be fair to other teams in the playoff.

The 4 best teams were probably in. It just needs to be 8 to let the little guys have a chance.

How many teams would be undefeated with UCF's schedule? And If Scott Frost isn't involved, Husker fans wouldn't care.

I don't get excited about recruiting anymore. Too many commits flip and it's rare for a recruit to play his whole career at one school.

We only have legit shot at one of them. This class is underwhelming so far.

I’m an offensive guy. Gimme David Sanders and a speedy receiver and I’ll be happy.

LOL Sanders isn't coming to Nebraska

Do you think Nebraska has one of the easier conference football schedules in the Big Ten in 2024?

Starting with Ohio State, Oct 26, the balance of the season is against very formidable teams. Big Red needs to do well in the first seven games to be bowl eligible.
