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.

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.

OU is susceptible to the long passing game. NU pulls out some stops on offense. D keeps it close. OU by 3.

Spencer is a guy who’s easily rattled (get it?) and figures to throw a few picks if pressured. I still think we lose but Huskers can move the ball through the air and force a few TOs to keep this game within 14. Small chance they even pull out the W

Sooner's lose one game mid-season. Why not this one. Hopefully no one showed the Sooner team what Frost and company did to them in '96 and '97. We should play well for 3 quarters then their top guys may take over.

It's likely at some point in the game we'll be down a score or two. Does this team have the mental toughness to fight and mount a comeback or will they fold? I just don't think the team has that kind of confidence in themselves yet.

I can’t believe Nebraska fans have fallen so far that they discuss if they can’t beat the spread and not if they can beat OU.

No way! IL lost big to an unrated Virginia team. Sooners will do whatever they want to do regarding score. Tired of us ‘rebuilding’ when we can’t beat teams that out recruit us every year. Don’t those teams have to rebuild? Simply put we are either terrible recruiters or terrible developers.

Big REd is playing well below the Sooner's level. I just hope they can keep it at the 21 points and not get buried in a ten td avalanche.

They are still playing pretty bad. Offensive line is still not blowing anyone off the ball. Defense is still not getting a pass rush. Secondary is not as good as advertised. Hopefully there will be improvement.

We are not there yet. We put too much pressure on an improving defense. If NU could some how score 40 they might have a chance at the end of the game but....I'll call it 48-27 OU.

It's just a distraction, but it is the last thing we need right now. The timing of this news is extremely suspicious. Focus on taking care of business on the field and this will be ancient history in a month .

Frost is doing everything he can to try to get this program going again. That even means blatantly cheating and trying to cover up his cheating. This isn’t an oopsie, it’s desperation. Same with trying to run away from the OU game. He knows he’s in trouble and he just cost himself his buyout.
