    Did you read through that thread? Looks like there are just as many if not more LSU fans "ready to shut UCF up", "Do what Auburn couldn't do" and "For a 3 loss team, that's pretty entitled thinking" than there are, "This is a meaningless bowl game so let's just surrender now". If you think Ed Orgeron is going to let his team get humiliated after what happened to Auburn and potentially jeopardize his HC career, then I don't know what to tell you.
  2. Was really hoping the Sheriff would come revisit this, what a shame.

    Thanks Brad. Saved me the effort. Can't be having anyone thinking the impending LSU defeat was due to the fact that UCF played better football. I'm still waiting on that article showing Auburn had no reason to win in the Peach. And I fully expect some links in the ensuing weeks to see several articles from the media all favoring UCF in this meaningless (G5 super) bowl game against an unmotivated LSU team.

    100% agreed; to a point. Arkansas State was the better team that day. You're not going to find any UCF fans that pretends that loss didn't count simply because UCF wasn't motivated. Champions find ways to win. UCF didn't find a way to win that one, so Arkansas State earned it. And the team sure as hell didn't forget it. That was the last game they lost since the Obama Administration.

    This can't be. Why would LSU be motivated to play in a meaningless bowl versus a non-p5 opponent. UCF should easily win this.

    Should be a great game. UCF players thought they had a decent shot at a playoff after winning 25 games in a row. LSU won't be motivated to play a team from the AAC. It'll be the battle of the two non-motivated teams. Right Brad?

    Care to elaborate?

    I can't wait to see this. If it does exist, lets see if it was said prior to the game being played rather than a post-game excuse.

    That's not what Brad said. He said outside of playing for National titles - the NY6 bowl games are meaningless. Further, those teams mindsets cannot possibly be the same despite being two P5 teams. Some teams are closer to reaching the playoffs and missed it by one loss - whereas some have lost multiple games and had no chance.

    So you're saying a team that was on the cusp of playing for a National title just naturally imploded because they faced an opponent from the AAC? They beat Georgia AND Alabama - the talent and coaching to do that had to be significant. Why didn't they just play their 3rd string players from the start. Isn't that what teams who want to preserve the health of their players do? Why did one of their defensive players DDT our running back? Is a DDT a standard defensive block? Why did they have post-game comments about being motivated? Were they afraid of upsetting UCF's fans/players? ALL the experts had UCF getting pummeled with some even saying they didn't deserve to be on the same field as Auburn. Why didn't the experts just come out and say, "Well, this is UCF's superbowl, and Auburn has no reason to win... should be an easy game for UCF?" I've read some pretty ridiculous statements here, but this is ranks pretty high.

    So your opinion is because they lost -- they weren't motivated and essentially every team that loses during the NY6 bowl season is not motivated. Please tell me you think that.

    Because by virtue of why Clemson is at #2 and UCF being more similar to them than Oklahoma; would automatically garner higher rank than Oklahoma. If the CFP was going for the "best team" versus the most deserving team, they would have put Georgia at #4. But they would rather have less blowback by putting in 3 P5 conferences than 2.

    Great assessment of a team's intentions. Did you play for Auburn? Do you know the players personally? How do you have this inside knowledge? Or is this another opinion being passed off as fact?

    You mean the same Clemson team who is undefeated and essentially beat no one of note. Versus UCF who is also undefeated and beat no one of note? You mean the same Clemson team whose SOS is ranked within the same ballpark as UCF. The same Clemson who beat Pitt by 32 versus 31 with UCF? Versus comparing Oklahoma who has a loss? Doesn't exactly sound delusional when there are far more similarities than differences.

    Fair enough. Honest mistake. https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2018/8/29/17795292/college-football-2018-strength-of-schedule-week-14-rankings "Have the Tigers played a rigorous schedule? Goodness, no. If the average top-five team — by which, I mean literally the average of Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, and Oklahoma, the top five teams per S&P+ — played Clemson’s 13 opponents a countless number of times, it would have won about 90 percent of those games. That’s a strength of schedule that ranks 76th, not amazing but certainly harder than that of any of the other unbeatens. (UCF ranked 83). SOS rankings for college football’s unbeaten teams: 17. Alabama (0.834) 61. Notre Dame (0.888)76. Clemson (0.901)83. UCF (0.907) Clemson’s schedule was closer in competition level to UCF’s than Alabama’s, and by quite a bit. And it was worse than Notre Dame’s. You guys want to talk smack all you want about UCF not even being remotely deserving of a top 4 spot for having a soft schedule. Yet for some reason, due to that 7 point differential between Clemson and UCF, one team is firmly planted at #2 and the other isn't even in the same sentence.
