#17 UCF @ FAU @ Game Thread - September 7, 2019
Good teams lose on the road all the time and it's why the Bama's of the world only play 4 a year.
There is no shame in losing that game after winning 27 in a row.
Any G5 fans who craps on UCF simply does not understand how important they were and are for G5.
They brought attention to how unfair the P5 cartel is and how unfair scheduling is. Them standing up to 2-1 series is smart.
Joining the twitter mod of "see what happens when you play a real team'' just helps the P5 talking points.
Just think where you might stand if as we all hope one-day FAU went on a run like this.
As far as playing other teams, the Gators claimed that UCF declined to play them in a series, except what they failed to mention was that UF wanted their home game at UF and they wanted the UCF home game to not be at UCF but at the Citrus Bowl. Good for UCF to stand up to that BS.
UCF has advanced the G5 to new levels. I hope FAU can get to that level one day. Go owls.

The thing we all watch at the end of the year is not really a "playoff" as it is an ESPN invitational.
Where a bunch of people all connected to P5 schools selects teams without any consistent measurements.
Just look at Clemson this year who will probably finish the year without beating a single top 25 team and play 4 raod games in which two of the roads games they have a bye or play and FCS team before. That's a joke and should not be rewarded no matter how good you think they may be.
UCF was basically saying since your system is so rigged a bias we will just make a mockery of it and say we are champs.
Thanks to UCF there has already been serious talk of an 8 team playoff that included a G5 team every year.
NJOWL, I am sure you know what placate means.
Don’t get me wrong - the NCAA is a joke most of the time, but this is all about the money coming in and will ultimately be a big factor in if the “big boys” split off to do their own thing. Going to 8 and having to share ***could*** lead them to adding a few more teams and realigning to 4 mega-conferences where their conference championships are the quarterfinals and the 4 “champs” are the semis and championship.
Having 8 with 1 token G5 might work for awhile, but those guys will look for a way to keep all the money somehow.
